• ON THIS DAY IN WRESTLING HISTORY (January 5, 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 separate 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:
– Interview with newly crowned NWA National TV Champion Ron Garvin
– Ron Ritchie & Brian Adias vs. Mike Starbuck & Terry Ellis
– Interview with Bob Roop
– Long Riders vs. Mark Hill & Joshua Stroud
– Post-match interview in which the Long Riders
– Bob Roop vs. Gerald Findley

• WWE Slowly Planting Seeds For Edge’s In-Ring Return
As we have noted multiple times before, WWE Hall of Famer Edge is slated to return to in-ring action after 9 years on the Road to WrestleMania 36.
Despite Edge turning down reports of his comeback, multiple sources have confirmed that a deal has been signed between WWE and Edge.
As a matter of fact, WWE has even begun planting seeds for his return.
On last week’s episode of RAW, Randy Orton talked about Edge being forced to retire in his promo while he was faking his knee injury.
According to Brad Shepard, this wasn’t a coincidence that Edge got mentioned in a promo right around the time his return is being planned:
“A source in WWE told me it wasn’t a coincidence that Randy Orton mentioned Edge’s name during a promo on RAW.”
