In early 1988, Ron Fuller sold the Alabama end of the territory to David Woods along with the Continental name.  The split from Continental Championship Wrestling into two promotions took place over the week of 2/15/88.  The new group will be USA Pro Wrestling and will be based in Knoxville and run Eastern Tennessee towns like Chattanooga.  By August, Ron had sold the Knoxville end to Woods and the promotion reunited under the Continental name.
