Mid-South Wrestling: Week of 11/29-12/5 1982

For the week ending December 5th, 1982: Stagger Lee with an almost perfect SPOT rating as his feud with Kamala heats up, Buddy Landell returns & 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 Roop, Buck Robley, Dick Slater, Michael Hayes, Terry Gordy, Thomas Tate and women wrestlers Leilani Kai & Princess Victoria

The only newcomer this week was Buddy Landell. Buddy came in from Memphis for his third stint in Mid-South. He had been here previously for several months in 1981 plus a run in early '82 that lasted a couple of months.

Removed from the SPOT chart this week were Buck Robley (only booked on one show each of the last two weeks), Chavo Guerrero (no bookings in the territory this week) and King Cobra (went to Memphis).

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

A few quick notes:
-A huge tip of the hat to 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.
