McGuirk Wrestling Territory: Week of 12/15-12/21 1975

For the week ending December 21st, 1975: A future Sergeant battles with a Pork Chop in a mid-card feud, lumberjack matches abound in the latter part of the week & 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 SPOT ratings: Bob Sweetan, John Lewis (who probably was prelim wrestler John Davis and there was simply a typo in the ad) and Tony Rocca.

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

-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.

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