Tri-State Wrestling: Week of 11/26-12/2 1979

For the week ending December 2nd, 1979: the debut of a young rookie who would later become a "Doctor" & more!

Here's a look at the talent roster along with SPOT ratings and FEUD scores for the week.

Other wrestlers advertised for shows this week but not listed in the ratings: Jim Casey, Kenny Milsap & Steve West
  • Newcomers this week: Tom Prichard (he's listed as Ron Pritchard in at least one ad, but the wrestler and former football player by that name doesn't seem to have wrestled in a regular territory since 1974 or 1975 so this is almost certainly Tom, who may have also been working for Watts under the name Tom Price), Don Factor (had a handful of appearances in Southwest prior to coming here)

Known house shows for the week:

Monday - Tulsa, OK
  • Herb Calvert & Jim Garvin vs Oki Shikina & Scandor Akbar
  • Junior Heavyweight title tournament elimination match: Brian Blair vs Ron Starr
  • Don Bass vs Steve West
  • Bill Ash vs Ron McFarlane
  • Jim Casey vs Kenny Milsap

Sunday - Joplin, MO
  • Brian Blair & Herb Calvert & Jim Garvin vs Oki Shikina & Ron Starr & Scandor Akbar
  • Don Bass vs Tom Prichard
  • Don Factor vs Ron McFarlane
  • plus one other bout (may have been a captain's match but I'm not positive)
