• Recently Released WWE Superstar Hints At Joining IMPACT Wrestling
Recently released WWE Superstar Buddy Murphy was interviewed on Insight with Chris Van Vliet and talked about his WWE career and what’s next for him in the future.
Here’s what the former RAW Tag Team Champion had to say:
“I’m excited for the possibility. I think I could do some great stuff in IMPACT, I’ve got friends there like Sami Callihan. I’m pretty sure I wrestled like 9 dark matches on NXT with Sami Callihan in a row. It’s exciting but it’s an unknown. I have just under 2 months left, so we’ll see what comes.”
We recently reported that Murphy will wrestle AEW Wrestler Brian Cage at an upcoming independent wrestling show at the legendary ECW arena.

• ON THIS DAY IN WWF HISTORY (July 14, 1984) – WWF Georgia Championship Wrestling on TBS (Black Saturday)
On this day in 1984, the World Wrestling Federation aired the debut episode of their new 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” show).
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 “WWF Brawl To End It All” event.
