• OLD SCHOOL VIDEO HISTORY (March 16, 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.

• Becky Lynch Helps A Fan Who Suffered A Seizure During Recent Signing
Women’s Royal Rumble 2019 winner Becky Lynch is a very generous and kind person.
A fan at a recent Becky Lynch signing suffered a seizure and couldn’t get up on the stage. This led to Becky rushing to the fan and Becky held her for 5 minutes to make sure she was fine. Becky then signed a picture for that fan.
Becky is the nicest person ever and I haven't even talk to her yet but a lady was unable to get up the stairs and she HOPPED tf up to run and hug her and sign her picture pic.twitter.com/rThpyr2Z1V

I almost forgot to tell you guys, Becky Lynch is a really fucking good person. A girl had a seizure in line at the signing, started shaking uncontrollably and couldn’t make it up the stairs. Becky ran and held her tight as she could for like 5 minutes until it completely stopped.
