In 1977 Louie Tillet attempted to start an Ohio territory. They taped a TV studio show at WCMH-4 in Columbus and also aired on WJAN-17 in Canton which could be seen in Cleveland and Akron. The whole thing was a fiasco and shut down in about two months. The April 11, 1977 card in Dover, OH had a crowd of 6 with neither the wrestlers nor the ring showing up. The promotion decided to bag the card because of a low advance, but never told the building. Here are all the card listings I could find.

The March 14 card was cancelled, but there was a card held in Dover on March 21, and one planned, at least, for March 28.
