Beej,

You've seen the MSG record book. That's probably the best one on a particular venue even though there were I think four different buildings.

Graham Cawthon has a special section on his site detailing WWWFE cards at particular venues.

Jim Melby did a Chicago Ampitheatre record book several years ago detailing cards from 1949 to 1974.

With all the Florida research that has been done by Robert VanKavelaar, Scott Teal, Don Luce and others, a record book of cards  at the Tampa Fort Homer Hesterly Armory could probably be completed. It would just take a ton of time getting all the research together.

Our own mj99 could do it for the Mid South Coliseum in Memphis. Most if not all of those cards are already on his website.

The Omni in Atlanta would be another one. Rich Tate probably has the majority of cards there.

George Lentz probably could do it for the Auditorium in Milwaukee. Gary Will for Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto.  The list goes on and on.

Like I wrote before, it takes lotsa time and effort.

All the reasearch I do is by city.  It might not go back to the begining, but it does cover a few years for that city, and for some cities I do go back to its origins.  Some of them are on the internet, and others just need scanned over.

Claw doesn't realize what I have doen for him yet.  When I broke the AWA up by city, for the years I researched it. I had already put it into a HTML format,  backed with the original newspaper clippings to verify the AWA stuff.  It just needs to be gone over by me and uploaded.  Then he gets to make sure of its accuracy after I check it, before that section goes public.   I discussed doing some HTML stuff with him for a very similar related issue, but I didnt tell him I already had done it, in a  city by city aspect for a few years.

I think I have at least 90% of the shows at the Olympic Auditorium from 1954 through 1982.

If your that close to haveing it all.  Sometime drop me a email of the LA cards your missing, and I will finalize them for you if it is only 10 percent missing.  I would have no issues with locking it down for you, so it is complete.  Plus I'd sneak in a few San Diego cards you didnt have.  ;)

I've got the Sam Houston Coliseum from '82-'86. May have even got it from Claw, I don't remember now.

I've seen many of the Los Angeles cards. Wong Lee and I shared a bunch on another board. Ron added in a lot of his stuff. Yohe had posted a bunch of stuff in another place. JMK sent a bunch via email. Wong Lee did plenty of his own research too.

I forgot to mention Ron researched Tampa for 77 and 78. Ron has researched so much stuff that sometimes cities slip my mind. The Washington DC research he did is really fascinating.

Charlotte is another city that has been well researched. Greensboro too. Clip corner did a bunch of the research as did others like NCJames, Don Luce and Scotty McKeever.

I'd love to see these arena resuls as a feature of the website. That's if people are up for sharing. I understand people's attitude towards the leeches who take and don't give anything back. Perhaps it could be a password protected site.

I'm thinking of something similar to what they have over at Mid-Atlantic Wrestling Gateway but featuring all the results each year. Here's what I'm talking about http://www.midatlanticgateway.com/Resource_Center/venues/venue_index.htm

What ever happened to Vance Nevada's results for Canada. It used to be hosted on yahoo somewhere, but seems gone now. He had a crapload of results from Maple Leaf Gardens.
