• AEW Suspends FTR
On last week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, Jungle Boy defeated Dax Harwood of FTR in a singles match.
After the match, FTR attacked Jungle Boy, and handcuffed Luchasaurus and cut off his horns, and tried to cut Jungle Boy’s hair, but got chased off by SCU & Top Flight.
AEW has now announced that FTR has been suspended for a week due to their actions and they won’t compete in tomorrow’s Tag Team Battle Royal to crown the #1 Contenders for the AEW World Tag Team Titles.
John Silver & Alex Reynolds will take FTR’s place in this Battle Royal.
Below is the announcement by AEW:
“Upon review of their conduct after the Jungle Boy v. Dax Harwood match, FTR are suspended from competition for 1 week, thus out of the #BeachBreak Tag Team Battle Royale. FTR are replaced by John Silver & Alex Reynolds on #AEWDynamite on @TNTDrama TOMORROW night at 8pm ET/7pm CT!”

• ON THIS DAY IN WWF HISTORY (February 2, 1985) – WWF Georgia Championship Wrestling on TBS
On this day in 1985, the World Wrestling Federation aired another episode of their TV show ‘World Championship Wrestling’ on Ted Turner’s channel TBS.
‘World Championship Wrestling’ originally belonged to the Georgia Championship Wrestling territory, which Vince McMahon bought in July 1984 (leading to the infamous “Black Saturday”).
After the first ever WrestleMania event in 1985, McMahon sold the TV-show and the timeslot on TBS (that came with it) to the Atlanta based Jim Crockett Promotions, who kept the ‘World Championship Wrestling’ name and continued the show as a weekly Saturday night Wrestling show.
Ted Turner eventually bought Jim Crockett Promotions in late 1988 and renamed it ‘World Championship Wrestling’, which ironically was also the name of its weekly A-show, until they changed the show’s name to ‘WCW Saturday Night’ in 1992.
The World Wrestling Federation product ran on this show from July 14, 1984 until March 25, 1985.
This episode featured pre-taped matches & interviews on the road to the first ever WrestleMania event.
