A couple of months ago, I put together results for Albuquerque from 1951-mid 1959. I kept up with champions as they came through the area.
The dates listed by each champ are the dates of the Albuquerque card which mentioned them as champ. For example, Frankie Murdoch was listed in the paper as being Southwestern champ as early as the June 29, 1951 card and as being such as late as August 10, 1951.

Keep in mind that this is in reference to the "World" Tag Titles which were used along with the Southern Tag Titles in the Jarrett Memphis promotion in the early 80s, not to be confused with the CWA Tag Titles which were created in 1988 to go along with the new CWA Heavyweight Title, which unified the Southern, MidAmerican, and International Titles.

Does anybody have any title histories for this promotion?
Wrestling title historie doesn't have much on their title history
I know they had a US Title and World title and Eastern Tag Championship.
I can't find much on the history of the US Title
Frank Scarpa held the championship most of the time but I have read some results Bull Curry,Hans Shmidt and Gypsy Joe Dorsetti at one point also holding the US title.

There's a wrestler who wrestled in Amarillo around 1956 under the name of "Rip Rogers" and had three reigns as Southwest tag team champion. Is this Eddie Graham? I know he wrestled in Texas as Rip Rogers in 58 but the period of time Eddie Gossett wrestled in Georgia kinda conflicts with these title reigns of "Rip Rogers" in Amarillo.
