The McGuirk/Watts Wrestling Almanac - Chapter 4 (1960 Q3)

Welcome to Chapter 4 of The McGuirk/Watts Wrestling Almanac, an in-depth data-driven look at the wrestling territory run by Leroy McGuirk (and later, Bill Watts). The territory is most commonly known as Tri-State Wrestling and/or Mid-South Wrestling, though neither of those names were actually used until September 1979 when Watts split from McGuirk.

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

Previous chapters:

NOTABLE ALIASES / ALTERNATE RING NAMES

ALI PASHA – Wrestled for Jack Pfefer as Zim Zam Zum; it wasn’t a significant portion of his career, but the name is too ridiculous not to be mentioned

BABY BLIMP – George Harris aka Two Ton Harris

CHIEF RED CLOUD – Bobby Red Cloud

DICK DUNN – Teamed with Leon “Tarzan” Baxter as The Masked Superstars for Gulas in 1976; teamed with Billy Garrett as The Medics and as The Red Raiders

DON KENT – Teamed with Al Costello (and later with other partners) as The Fabulous Kangaroos

EDDIE SULLIVAN – This is belived to be Edward Montimayor, who also wrestled as Tito Montez and spent most of his career in the southwest; not to be confused with Ruben Huizar, who debuted in the mid-60s and wrestled as Eddie Sullivan primarily in the southeast

GREAT BOLO – Al Lovelock

HANS BRUNER – Eric Von Krupp, The Mighty Prussian and Danny Marcello among other names

KAROL KRAUSER – Karol Kalmikoff

TARO MIYAKI – George Kongozan aka Kongozan, Professor Hiro

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.
-Unless otherwise noted (which is very rare), all of the information listed here is the result of my own personal research, even at the expense of duplicating information/research that was already out there.
-My focus is on the advertised lineups for wrestling events, not the results. As such, we generally will not be posting results for events, just what was advertised to take place.
-While SPOT Ratings and FEUD Sc…

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.
