So for all the Mid South fans, whats a good jumping in point? I'd like to get in when its hot and some good angles going, rather than slog through a bunch of squash matches. Any recommendations?

Watching the 8/8/87 NWA World Championship Wrestling show. Got to give credit to Dusty, as he had long term booking set months in advance. On the 8/1/87 episode they already set shit in motion for the post Bash feuds (Dusty vs. Luger, RnR vs. Tully and Arn, Flair vs. Ronnie Garvin) leading into the Thanksgiving Starrcade three months down the road.  The Flair/Garvin thing kinda easily transitioned from the Jimmy Garvin blowoff where Flair won Precious for a night but Jimmy and Ronnie busted in. This episode has Sean Royal in a squash also, who is super over (this is after the accident so Chris Champion is still out) and you can kinda tell this is the very moment when the RnR Express looks dated as hell. A team like the New Breed makes RnR look awful, and sure enough RnR was basically done after Starrcade '87.

I watch it on Youtube.  I'm in 83 which is very enjoyable.  82 was very good also. That's where Tamalie is.   I think I started in 80 or 81, but I don't remember much about it. I've watched so much recently it's blending together.
I'm watching every territory simultaneously chronologically.  So I watch every show I can find from September 9th, 1983.  It's interesting because Georgia and Mid South and Houston are sharing some talent.  It gives it a nice flow because a guy (I don't want to ruin any angles) lost a loser leaves town match in one place and showed up in another.

About your Mid South squash match concern, their TV has very few squashes, and the guys who do get beat are more young future stars than they are jobbers.  Bill Irwin and Rick Harris (Black Bart) are enhancement guys, but they put them over as young guys learning the ropes.  There aren't any Frankie Williams or Rooster Griffins.  I just watched JYD vs. DiBiase which is their hottest feud. As much as I can't stand Watts on the mic, his TV show is the best around.

My WWF PPV and SNME journey is over. Royal Rumble 93 is such a bad show, and I know it's not getting better any time soon. I've already watched WWE 1996-2002. With no new wrestling on the WWE Network anymore, I've cancelled my subscription. They didn't offer me a free month this time, so I guess I'm done with them.

So... I've taken up the free 30 day trial of Impact Plus. Not sure exactly what I want to watch yet, but for the time being I've gone back to show #1.

It's amazing that there was a show #2 after watching the first one (or a #3 if you want to be picky, since the first two were taped together.)

The X-Division guys are great (if you ignore the Flying Elvises gimmick). Everything else is HORRIBLE. Midgets, awful women's "wrestling", the Dupps, the Johnsons, Ed Ferrara, NASCAR drivers, country singers. It's unfathomable that company still exists. People really paid their $10 and thought that this was worth $10 every week.

The opening of the first show is hilarious, with Jeff Jarrett, Ken Shamrock and Scott Hall all cutting promos on how much it sucks to crown a new champion in a battle royal. That all comes down to a regular match between Ken Shamrock and Malice (WCW's The Wall) with Ricky Steamboat as ref. The match is actually pretty good, except for one huge, huge problem. Malice tapped three times before the finish. He wasn't supposed to tap, the match didn't end, and he wasn't trying to tap out, but he quite clearly tapped three times. It was so obvious that the announcers even mentioned it.

Now Memphis is setting up Lawler vs. Dundee Loser Leave match, and Eddie Marlin said something like, "The loser is really going to leave. This won't be like other ares where the loser returns under a mask." I loved him taking a shot at the absurdity of a guy returning under a mask and everyone pretending they can't tell who it is except the heels.


Son of a Bitch, Mid-Atlantic ran the loser returns as masked man angle with Charlie Brown From Out of Town too.  The Midnight Rider, Stagger Lee, and Charlie Brown were all within a months or two from each other.

Watching the April 1986 MSG show. First four matches were somewhat shitty, although Rene Goulet and Iron Mike Sharpe are fucking awesome.


The Tito vs. Macho IC match is electric.


Lanny Poffo vs. Rene Goulet
Volkoff vs. Garea
King Tonga vs. Paul Christy
Sivi Afi vs. Iron Mike Sharpe
Beefcake vs. Dynamite Kid
Valentine vs. Davey Boy
Santana vs. Savage (No DQ IC Title Rematch)
Sheik vs. Kirchner
Hogan/Jim vs. Studd/Bundy

The Hogan/Jim vs. Studd/Bundy match is on the Hulkamania 2 Coliseum Video VHS.

Was that in 83 too?  Fuck, because Dibiase just returned to Georgia and started talking shit in Tommy Rich, so Mr. R will soon be making an appearance too.

There's a weird dynamic on this show. It's Ernie Ladd's first show back in the WWF. It's a three man team with Ernie, Gorilla and Alfred. They all get along, and Gorilla is giving him major respect even though he kinda sucks. I know he did the Big Event and the first three weeks of Wrestling Challenge, but I don't recall if he had any other work in the WWF at the time.

Ernie Ladd would help guys get into the WWF. He was a recruiter for them for awhile. Jim Cornette said Ernie was the guy who called him when they had their meeting with Vince in 1986.

Old TNA is just too crap, and the SD looks awful. I'm gonna watch 2020 Impact and see how it goes. The first show is good fun, much more so than 2020 NXT to compare two small arena shows. The one thing that really bugs me is Josh Matthews on commentary. He always calls the finish during the 3-count and not after, which is an incredibly annoying habit. At first I thought the audio was out of sync, but the promos are fine.

Watching some of the Hannibal shoots. Teri Runnels is awful. Raymond Rougeau was pretty good. The Skype session he did with Adrian Adonis' daughter was ok, the drug stuff is the best part.

Anyone know why the Road Warriors fired Ellering? Neither side turned face and to my knowledge they didn't feud.


Ellering just switched from managing the Roadies to Buzz Sawyer.

Eventually they reunited making it even more odd.

This is an interesting card:
November 24, 1983 (Thursday) – Atlanta, GA – Omni Coliseum (Paul Jones – Promoter / Georgia Championship Wrestling) 


 
One-Night Tag Team Tournament: 
Jim Neidhart & King Kong Bundy over Tommy Rogers & Joe Lightfoot to advance; 

Butch Reed & Pez Whatley over Randy Rose & Jimmy Randolph to advance; 


Bruise Brothers (Troy Graham & Porkchop Cash) over the Russians (Nikolai Volkoff & Korstia Korchenko) to advance; 


Ron Garvin & Jim Duggan over Bob Brown & Chick Donovan to advance;

 
Randy Savage & Magnum T.A. over the Mad Mongolians (members involved are unknown to us at this time) to advance;



(Why the ass do you have 10 teams and give a second round bye to T.A. & Savage & a third round bye to Reed & Whatley) 


Round 2:
Reed & Whatley over Neidhart & Bundy to advance; 
the Bruise Brothers over Garvin & Duggan to advance;


Round 3:
Savage & T. A. over the Bruise Brothers to advance;


Finals

Reed & Whatley over Savage & T. A. to win the money


To me this is interesting because Whatley is a face and Reed is a Heel.  Unless I missed some matches Whatley is wrestling in Georgia and Reed in Mid-South & they haven't teamed together.  The pairing is odd outside the fact that they are both black.



 Other matches...
> Women’s Match: Debbie Combs over Donna Day > Ted DiBiase over Brett Sawyer > Jake Roberts over Mr. Wrestling #2 > Tommy Rich & Buzz Sawyer over the Road Warriors (Animal & Hawk) / Notes: It was reported that 12,000 were in attendance for this card. It was reported that the purse for the tournament was $50,000. Paul Ellering managed Roberts and the Warriors. Jimmy Hart managed the Bruise Brothers.




Rich & Buzz teamed which is cool because this is a very short time after the Last Battle of Atlanta.



This says Ellering is managing the Roadies, but on TV where they are hyping the card they are not together, but I guess there are 19 days to go.
