• ON THIS DAY IN NWA HISTORY (February 23, 1985) – Championship Wrestling From Georgia
On this day in 1985, Ole Anderson aired an episode of his new TV show ‘Championship Wrestling From Georgia’ on Ted Turner’s channel TBS.
The story was that after Vince McMahon’s WWF bought the ‘Georgia Championship Wrestling’ territory and the TBS timeslot that came with it, too many people complained to Ted Turner’s TV station, that they want to see their well known NWA wrestlers again, instead of the new WWF program that they got as a replacement.
So therefore Ole Anderson received a seperate morning time slot on TBS for his new promotion ‘Championship Wrestling From Georgia’, that had several NWA Wrestling Superstars on their show.
You can find the card below:
– Abdullah the Butcher vs. Mark Hill
– Scott Irwin & Kareem Muhammad vs. Paul Garner & Jerry Flynn
– Ron Garvin vs. Chic Donovan
– Devil Blue vs. Terry Ellis
– Bob Roop & Ron Starr vs. George South & Henry Mills
• Goldberg Reveals What He Thinks About Matt Riddle
During a recent interview with Total Slam podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg was asked about his thoughts on NXT wrestler Matt Riddle (who has insulted Goldberg on multiple occasions).
Below is what Goldberg said:
“Riddle is like a booger stuck in your nose – he is annoying and won’t go away.
He has no influence on Goldberg’s life. Period. End of story.
It’s the wrestling business and sometimes when you’re out in public you may run into a former foe and you can never know how the situation will turn out.
It is what it is, and we don’t see eye to eye.”
