carribean Tag Team Titles

Postby phil » 2003/07/15 Tue 12:01 am

I am looking for the History to the WWC Carribean tag team titles before 1987. I've looked in Will and Duncan's book and didn't see anything. Anyone no where I can find this info. I'm willing to exchange information in return for help. They were known as the NWA titles before and I think the L&G carribbean tag titles before then.

I would have to assume that the "NWA" and L&G championships were titles that belonged to the Tampa office. Before they changed their name to Championship Wrestling from Florida, Inc., they were known as L&G Promotions, Inc., and before that, L&G Development Co., Inc. (L&G I presume standing for Luttrall & Graham/ Gossett). I believe they used to promote shows every now and then over there before Capital Sports (Jovica and Colon) started up in the early 70s.

The latest (4th) edition of Wrestling Title Histories only lists the history after 87 for some reason. In fact the edition is missing a lot of info from the 3rd edition, and luckily, I kept the 3rd edition. Anyway, I updated the listing. Please click <a href='' target='_blank'>here</a>.
