RIP - clawmaster

I was away for the weekend and just got back. The first thing I read on the internet was a shocking news.

As many of you probably know by now, Jim "clawmaster" Zordiani passed away on late Friday evening or early Saturday.

SLAM! Wrestling article

I can't find words to describe how thankful I am for his contributions to not only my websites but also researches and preservation of the history of pro-wrestling in general.

RIP.

Texas All-Star USA junior heavyweight title 85-86

Other Regional Territories: pre-1990s



Texas All-Star USA junior heavyweight title 85-86

Hi,

Was wondering if someone has the title lineage for the USA Jr Title, that was held by Ric McCord, Dale Veasey, and Al Gavigan, during the summer of 85 into 1986.

I no longer have my wrestling title history book, and can't remember the dates of the title changes.

Thanks!

World Light Heavyweight Title (New England)

Other Regional Territories: pre-1990s

World Light Heavyweight Title (New England)

I never knew there was a lineage prior to the match where George Becker defeated Steve Passas in 1939/01/20 in Bridgeport. In fact, Passas was a multiple-time champion throughout the 1930s.

Looks like this title was recognized by the New England promoters who were not associated with Pau Bowser.

National Wrestling Association/Alliance



The Association still existed in 1975

Looks like the National Wrestling Association still existed in 1975.

From the 1975/12/09 issue of the Morning Herald (Hagerstown, MD):

Jack Adkisson (Fritz von Erich) was the president of the NWAlliance around this time.

RIP - Bill Robinson (1939 - 2014)

Jack Shannon of Sceintific Wrestling reports:
I am unbelievably sad to report that my very good friend Billy Robinson passed away today. I hadn't heard from him in days so I contacted his apartment complex to check in on him. When I called back for a progress report the apartment manager put the police on the phone, it seems he passed peacefully in his sleep. He was a lion of a man, bigger than life in so many ways, my wife and I named our youngest son, Lliam in his honor. You will ...
