• OLD SCHOOL VIDEO HISTORY (March 9, 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:
– TV Champion Bob Roop vs. Randy Barber
– Thunderbolt Patterson vs. Greg Stone
– Siegfried vs. David Fields
– Ivan Koloff vs. Henry Mills
– National Heavyweight Champion Ron Garvin vs. Devil Blue
– Kareem Muhammad vs. Brickhouse Brown
– The Avenger vs. Mark Hill
– Tommy Rich vs. Rip Rogers (w/Brenda Britton)

• Major Update On Brock Lesnar’s Post-WrestleMania 35 Status
“The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar will defend the Universal Championship against Men’s Royal Rumble 2019 winner Seth Rollins in the co-main event of WrestleMania 35.
According to Slice Wrestling, WWE officials are discussing another short term deal with Lesnar for the post-WrestleMania 35 season.
This comes after UFC President Dana White said in an interview that Daniel Cormier vs. Brock Lesnar for the UFC Heavyweight Championship is going to happen.
As we have noted before, Vince McMahon doesn’t want the impression of top stars leaving WWE and going to some other company. This will most likely lead to Lesnar getting more comfortable & big money deals from WWE.
If Lesnar & WWE agree to a short-term deal for the post-WrestleMania 35 season, then there’s a possibility that Lesnar will retain the Universal Championship at WrestleMania 35.
It should also be noted that Lesnar is expected to work the post-WrestleMania 35 PPV, which will take place in Saudi Arabia in May.
