One Fan Gang
|For a time in 1981-82; Angelo Poffo's ICW show was syndicated in Northeast Wisconsin, airing tapes of their studio matches that appeared to be taped from 1980 based on the events and timelines that have surfaced in the promotion's history. A skeleton crew of ICW remnants used the shows as a basis for co-promoting in the state with smaller groups like the UWA, Inc. which I believe was Albert Patterson's company based out of Milwaukee (Patterson later would be in a lawsuit challenging Titan Sports over their use of the name "Superstars of Wrestling"). Here, "King Kong Patterson" shows up in the results along with Milwaukee-area guys used for AWA TV enhancement. It's among my group of AWA results, so I am taking a break to list it here. Not sure of the venue in Oshkosh they ran, however.
