Claw-  do you have any results listings for Florida 70s-early 80s...I've been to the Rose website and that is great but he has all the original programs listed and it is time consuming to pick through...has anyone ever compiled a list of results from, say, Miami, Tampa, St. Pete etc. for house shows from this period?

Yes I have lists day by day for each year. The most complete years are the ones covered in Florida Mat Wars published by Robert VanKavelaar. RVK has done FMW for 1970, 1971, 1972, 1974, 1975, 1976, 1980 and 1981 in addition to 1956, 1958, 1966 and 1967. I've typed out all the 60s and 70s stuff and am still working on 1980 and 1981. Eventually I'll tackle 1956 and 1958. You can order Florida Mat Wars on Barry Rose's site. RVK hasn't been online much lately. Barry is also doing on this day in Florida Wrestling History on the Florida section of the KM board. I help him out.

I could be a dick and say no to the request out of respect for RVK just telling you guys to order his books. But I'm not like that. I'll post what I have. Heck Barry and I are doing it on KM so why not here. And AndyO has already posted a bunch of the stuff already on his month by month threads on the KM results forum. Plus I've posted many of the cards here already on various record book threads. You really should get the FMW books from RVK though. 

For the years not covered by RVK in issues of FMW, I do have lists day by day for each year. The lists are just not as complete and many of the cards have not been checked by clippings. So undoubtedly, there will be errors.

I'll start posting the years over the weekend. Maybe some of you title history buffs can help me get the title histories correct.

Here is some of the stuff I gathered from my research into 1977 when I was researching for Billy Graham matches.

I know you seen some of this before Claw, but I just uploaded tonight the January through October for the weekly Tallahassee cards.  I'll add more cities to it soon.

Thanks again Ron. I'm so behind on some stuff it is ridiculous. Been doing so much Florida and Crockett stuff that I've been neglecting almost everything else. I can just imagine how it is for people that have more stuff than I do.

I will say this though. Looking at as much Florida and Crockett as I have, you start to see patterns and get a good feeling how those territories were booked. I'm really enjoying the 1980 Florida Mat Wars. Barry Windham is an opening match guy. Seeing how that progresses will be interesting. You also see all the guys that left Los Angeles and headed to Florida. Leroy Brown, the Twin Devils and Hector Guerrero to name a few.

Los Angeles was really fun to watch back in the day. Such a different style than Gagne's AWA or Bruiser's WWA. The only problems were trying to understand Spanish and the tapes were like 3 months behind. It took a long time for the bicycle to get to Chicago in those days. Sometimes I'd know about happenings in Los Angeles from the mags before the shows aired in Chicago.
