Buckle up folks because this one is a doozy. Most of our readers would agree that the WWE Network’s Hidden Gems section is at its best when uploading full events (or as near complete as possible). With that being the case, many people should be happy tomorrow as the WWE Network is set to add a full Georgia Championship Wrestling event from The Omni to the critically-acclaimed category. Dated 12/04/1983 and given the title “Wildfire and The Nature Boy“, here is the full card according to records:

Bob Roop vs. Mike Jackson
Chick Donovan vs. Johnny Rich
Cy Jernigan vs. Ronnie Garvin
NWA National Television Title: Jake Roberts (c) vs. Pez Whatley
NWA National Tag Team Titles: Brett Sawyer and Buzz Sawyer vs. The Road Warriors (c)
Buzz Sawyer vs. Ted DiBiase
NWA World Heavyweight Title: Ric Flair (c) vs. Tommy Rich

With a runtime of very nearly 2 hours and a 7-match card, that makes it highly likely that we’re being treated to the whole enchilada tomorrow, which is one hell of a rare treat when it comes to Georgia Championship Wrestling and especially when it comes to The Omni.

As always, here is the official synopsis:

Georgia Championship Wrestling 12/04/1983 – Wildfire and The Nature Boy [Duration: 01:58:39]

Ric Flair puts the World Heavyweight Championship on the line against Tommy Rich, while Ted DiBiase battles Buzz Sawyer from The Omni

As a final reminder, the above event will be uploaded to the “WWE Hidden Gems” category of the Vault section on WWE Network (under the relevant year) between 9 and 10 AM EST/ 2 and 3 PM GMT tomorrow (Thursday, May 23rd).
