The Albany Herald (GA) had weekly matches off and on through the decades. It's a paper I haven't researched past the early 1940s as they didn't cover what I research (segregated high school sports; the paper's owner was an ardent segregationist).

If anyone wants a specific paper to research, that should be a good one. They did cover wrestling decently. Using Cornette's book as a guide, I have found mid-1980s ads.

I'll try finding some Bockwinkel listings there when I have time.
