What we all will eventually have to do is list the years of JCP and later WCW and see what's right and what's wrong. I know the listings Spats, Kriss and OFG have posted have helped me immensely. And I have a new CD Rom of clippings from clip corner that has a bunch of stuff. I've already archived some of it.

Something similar to the AWA thread for any territory would be good. I've been enjoying looking for AWA and Dick the Bruiser results, and I like the collaborative side of it.

Add it to the list of projects, claw!

An idea: We could have some pet projects here at S&W. Each territory or wrestler would get two threads, a master list of all known results and a thread for additions, corrections and questions. Sticky them to the top until we are finished.

Thanks for posting those results Kriss. Most of them i didn not have. It would be great if we did a Mid Altantic/WCW thread like the great Florida and AWA ones Claw has done. It would help everyone with their own results because everyone seems to have some results that everyone else is missing.

A strange one, also from the Harrisburg, VA newspaper:

Southern Championship Wrestling featuring Blackjack Mulligan, Jr. will be held 8pm today an the Franklin (WV) High School gym.

Ok, Mulligan Jr is Barry Windham, but what was Southern Championship Wrestling?

Seems I'm just turning this thread into a Ric Flair clippings thread... I always get a kick out of finding new Flair listings, though.

There's a ton of new stuff on Newspaper Archive now. I searched for Flair results earlier this year and found nothing that hadn't been found already, but I'm finding loads of new stuff tonight. We really do need to get together and nail down the Mid-Atlantic territory.

For Oct. 22 1979, Mid Atlantic matches were held in Greenville SC, Myrtle Beach SC, and Harrisonburg Va. This was a Monday night.  During this timeframe, matches were held in Norfolk on Thursday nights. 

The Norfolk match for that week was Oct. 25 1979 with a main event of Jimmy Snuka defeating Flair.

Clip is right.  The Flair-Rogers Norfolk match was actually November 22, 1979.

Found this indy clipping from Penn Laird, VA in 1988 and didn't really know what else to do with it, so...

On a side note, how was 50+ year old Nelson Royal as World Junior Heavyweight Champion? Seems like the lighter division is more suited to younger faster guys.

Ok, Mulligan Jr is Barry Windham, but what was Southern Championship Wrestling?

Should be The Mulligan/Flair run promotion, out of Knoxville, this to my knowledge was in conjunction with Crockett, summer of 81 through early 1982.

When I was looking at the results I thought that many of them were stemming from that, Stomper, and guys like that were top card for them.

I know they ran some Crockett towns that he didn't want to bother sending the A-team to. 

There is a bit of video of the territory out there.  Les Thatcher did the TV.

More on Southern Championship Wrestling (Knoxville)

Some excerpts from an old KM thread that Les Thatcher responded to:  BJ, along with Flair and Jim Crockett Jr. bought the territory from Jim Barnett. The deal was that Crockett would add some Virginia towns to the mix along with their TV outlets, and shuffle talent in and out from Charlotte which happened very little and finally dried up completely. I think Ric worked K-town once the whole time.
  I returned to Knoxville from Pensacola to produce and host the TV along with Kevin Sullivan who was booking and wrestling as well. Off the top of my head I can't rmember all the talent. BJ, and son Barry, John Studd in and out Wayne Farris (Honky Tonk) a young Chris "King Kong" Bundy, a very green Terry Taylor, Ron Wright, Rick Connors,
  Too many years have gone by to remember who did what, or the angles. The territory had been hurt by the wasteful promotional war between Poffo's promotion and SEW under Fuller and Barnett other wise I believe we would have made it.
  BJ was and is still one of my favorite people and we still stay in touch. He gave Sullivan and I our heads to create the product, but as I said had the Charlotte office held up their end with adding the towns and TV then we would have made it work.
   I know this doesn't answer all your questions but as I said that was a long time ago, and I don't have our history from then written down any where.

 The entire run of promtions from 1975 through Crockett/Mulligan in the early 80's was taped every Saturady morning at the studios of WBIR-TV Channel 10 which then was a CBS affiliate.
  Flair, BJ, and Crockett buying this promotion had little or nothing to do with points in the Charlotte promotion. Barnett wanted out, and they felt that buying the K-Town office would expand the JCP territory andd as I said earlier the idea was to tie it in with the area between Knoxville and Roanoke and swap talent. Plus Ric and Jack were looking for something stable for long term when they quit wrestling.

 Channel 6 out of Bluefield WV showed Mid Atlantic wrestling
during this time. I think its was on Saturday nights. I remember
the Knoxville show would come on Saturday afternoons but the
time slot moved around and some weeks we would not get it.
 The opening of the show was the bests. It showed clips
of Flair and Mulligan. By  the summer of 1981, Flair was traveling
all over and Mulligan and Studd could not carry the promotion.
It was not a bad idea because Bluefield WV, Kingsport TN
Johnson City TN etc.. could draw a crowd.

Found this indy clipping from Penn Laird, VA in 1988 and didn't really know what else to do with it, so...

On a side note, how was 50+ year old Nelson Royal as World Junior Heavyweight Champion? Seems like the lighter division is more suited to younger faster guys.


Nelson Royal was the NWA World Jr. champ at this time, although he cancelled this appearance to wrestle in Knoxville the same night for the USA promotion. I believe he wrestled Scott Armstrong there.

The name of the TV show for the Flair-Mulligan Southern Championship Wrestling group was just "NWA Championship Wrestling".
