• OLD SCHOOL VIDEO 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.
You can find the card below:
1. Adrian Adonis & Dick Murdoch vs. Nick DiCarlo & SD Jones
2. Jesse Ventura vs. Chris Curtis
3. Iron Sheik vs. Ron Hutchison
4. John Studd vs. Bobo Brazil
• The Undertaker Reportedly Very Happy After Extreme Rules 2019 Performance, Hugs Drew McIntyre Backstage
As we noted during our Extreme Rules 2019 live coverage, The Undertaker absolutely tore the house down during the No Holds Barred tag team match as he delivered his best performance in years!
The match ended with The Undertaker pinning Shane McMahon after delivering a Tombstone Piledriver. The Undertaker showed respect to his tag team partner, Roman Reigns, by telling him ‘This is your yard’.
According to Brad Shepard, The Undertaker was very happy backstage after his match (as he wasn’t happy at all with what happened at WWE Super ShowDown) and gave Drew McIntyre a hug.
It should be noted that we might get to see The Undertaker vs. Drew McIntyre next month at SummerSlam 2019.
We’ll keep you updated regarding The Undertaker’s status.
