I just started watching WCCW on the network, I’m 2 shows I from the beginning. Did WCCW only produce 1 show a week or at some point does the network start showing 2 a week? I ask because I’m new to WCCW and I thought from hearing manning on Flair’s podcast it sounded like they had 2 weekly TV shows.

There was a different weekly show taped in Fort Worth that isn't on the network.

WCCW had 2 shows in their heyday.

They had the syndicated World class Championship Wrestling show. With Bill Mercer as the host during most of its run.

Then they had the aforementioned “Championship Sports” show that aired Saturday nights on Dallas independent station KTVT. It was a 90 minute show at one point but i think it was increased to 2 hours during the 80’s.  Mercer hosted at some point in the early 80’s but Lowrance took over during the 80’s heydays.  It was taped in Ft Worth at the Will Rogers Center.

I was watching one of those shows the other day, and I have to say that it never ceases to amaze me how legitimately ugly the von Erich kids were and how the girls squealed for them anyway.  I mean, we're talking inbred hillbilly with Down's Syndrome ugly, and no one seemed to notice.

It must have been their eloquent speaking that attracted the ladies.

The retarded drawl has its appeal, made all the more sexy when combined with the slurred speech of someone who's drunk and stoned.

I agree about the Von Erichs. Kerry Von Erich was not a great looking dude when it came to his face.  but he had the body and I guess the great body disguised that. Was Ric Flair good looking? lots of women liked him in his prime years. But Ric had a big nose, a lisp,  etc. Famous guys can still be ugly and women will like them. plenty of ugly rock stars who had no problem getting women. For Every Great Looking guy like Elvis there was also Gene Simmons or Ozzy Osbourne. Were the Beatles great looking guys? Hello No!!!!!!!not even close. but.......

I know.  I remember watching WCCW over a friends house when I was in high school.  It was the first time it aired in our area - thinking around 1983.  We were all excited.  I had seen Kevin on TBS and liked his work.  After watching for the first time and seeing the rest of the family in all their "glory" my buddy says to me, "not for nothing, but they are one butt fucking ugly bunch".

There was an episode of either GWF or USWA and the heel commentator (forget who he was) went off about "horse-face Kerry". I think he even played an "interview" with Kerry, which turned out to be a horse neighing (or some sound effect).

While not an official Von Erich, Lance was a good looking guy. Think that helped to get him over. Yes, as much as people slam Lance, he seemed over with the Dallas crowd in 85-86.

He looked too normal face-wise to be a Von Erich. That should have tipped people off that there was no real connection.
