Jon Jones Retains The Title At UFC 235, Could’ve Lost Due To Illegal Knee Strike


• OLD SCHOOL VIDEO HISTORY (March 2, 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:

– NWA World Heavyweight Champion Ric Flair vs. Doug Vines (from JCP)

– Rip Rogers / Tommy Rich confrontation

– Rip Rogers vs. George South

– Devil Blue vs. Dave Fields


– Sigfried (Fred Ottman AKA Typhoon) vs. Mark Hill & Terry Ellis (Handicap match)

– Bob Roop vs. Italian Stallion

– Ivan Koloff vs. Randy Barber
