Hey Scott, big fan of yours. I just wanted to ask you four quick questions about the wrestling territories that could spark some debate among the great readers of the blog. Thanks!
1 – What was your favorite wrestling territory?
2 – What was your least wrestling favorite territory
3 – What was the most overrated wrestling territory?
4- What was the most underrated wrestling territory?
Yes! I rule at lightning rounds!
1. Crockett Promotions 86-91, at which point it officially became WCW as a separate entity and went down the toilet for a while. If you don't count that as a territory, then we'll say Memphis.
2. AWA. Especially since it was going so far downhill when I was getting into wrestling. It was something to watch in the afternoon and I liked Hennig and the Rockers, but that style just wasn't my thing. I've grown to enjoy certain aspects of it more in hindsight and now that I can appreciate different styles as opposed to 13 year old me, but it still doesn't hold a special place in my heart or anything. And those shows on ESPN Classic…WOOF.
3. ECW, duh.
4. Mid-South/UWF. Bill Watts was a revolutionary force who never got the chance to evolve with the times like he should have.
