Just finished watching some Texas All-Star Wrestling on Daily Motion, and the finals of the Texas Six-Man Tag Team Championship (that's what Steve Stack referred to it as) took place on January 12, 1986 in San Antonio, TX. It was said to be a 7 team tournament, with the finals having Elijah Akeem, Kareem Muhammed and Kamala defeating Big Bubba, One Man Gang and Mark Youngblood.

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!
