    The McGuirk/Watts Wrestling Almanac - Chapter 1 (1959 Q4)

    Welcome to Chapter 1 of The McGuirk/Watts Wrestling Almanac, an in-depth data-driven look at the wrestling territory run by Leroy McGuirk (and later, Bill Watts) and most commonly known as Mid-South Wrestling (though that name was only used starting in Sep '79).

    On the last Friday of every month, we will post a new Chapter, with each chapter covering a three-month period of time.

    A few quick notes:
    -A huge tip of the hat to http://www.midatlanticgateway.com as their "Almanac" section helped serve as inspiration for the entire Charting the Territories project.

    Amarillo 1966 - Introduction

    Western States Sports, more commonly known as the Amarillo territory, operated out of western Texas. The most frequently run cities in 1966 (that I have data for) were:

    Mondays - Abilene, TX
    Tuesdays - Odessa, TX
    Wednesdays - Lubbock, TX
    Thursdays - Amarillo, TX
    Fridays - Clovis, NM
    Saturdays - Littlefield, TX
    Sundays - Albuquerque, NM

    A guide to SPOT Ratings and FEUD Scores...featuring Magnum T.A. and The Midnight Express

    To coincide with my appearance on Episode 102 of the 6:05 Superpodcast discussing Charting the Territories, I've prepared a (not-so) brief primer to the statistics I have developed to quantify a wrestlers' role in a given territory at a given time, using data for Magnum T.A. and The Midnight Express in Mid-South Wrestling.
