Tri-State Wrestling: Week of 12/3-12/9 1979

For the week ending December 9th, 1979: junior heavyweights Brian Blair and Ron Starr feuding, a Texas feud comes to Oklahoma City & 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 Marshall, Kerry Von Erich & The Spoiler. Kerry and the Spoiler (Don Jardine) were both full-time in East Texas but came in for a show in Oklahoma City.

The lone newcomer this week was Steve Lawler. This was the wrestler who also worked under the name Steve Kyle, not to be confused with the Steve Lawler from Georgia indies. He had been working as Steve Kyle in Memphis before coming in.

Removed from the SPOT chart was Bill Ash, who had just a few bookings here in December and January and doesn't seem to have worked for another territory.
