This was the first show as Georgia Championship Wrestling under the WWF and the first to have original matches from the TBS Studios. This continued through the entire month of March as they built up to the first Wrestlemania . On April 6th Jim Crockett Promotions took over and returned the show, once again called World Championship Wrestling, to the auspices of the NWA.

Surreal viewing. They really had no idea what to do in this setting.

Didn't the mid-south have a run of like 2 weeks where they were the main program before Crockett but after WWF?

Mid-South had a trial run on TBS on Sundays from March 10-May 26, 1985. It was the same show seen in the Watts markets but aired on a several week tape delay. Turner was originally planning to replace the WWF with Mid-South before Crockett entered the picture. When JCP took over they were allowed to finish up and Watts even told the fans to watch and support the Crockett shows on the final telecast .

That ring is comically small. Clearly the studio was too small for a typical WWF ring and they didn't use the very low set ring the Georgia promotion used for years, but wherever this one came from, they ought to have sent it back.

So when Black Saturday happened, the WWF still used World Championship Wrestling for the program name correct?

But then this late in their run they reverted to Georgia CW?

Why the name change? I do not remember that....

Yes, it was World Championship Wrestling up until they started taping matches from the TBS studios. Then they changed it to Georgia Championship Wrestling., probably to give it more of a local flavor.
