Mid Atlantic News and Notes
Earlier, NWA and Mid Atlantic Championship Wrestling crowned new World 6-Man Tag Team Champions. There is talk that the rematch, scheduled for Coastal Clash, could have an interesting turn. Barry Windham is already scheduled to defend his TV Title that same night. Freebirds are already demanding the rematch be voided so they don't have to wrestle the Windham's and Houston again. We'll see how this develops on TV next week.
A rumor going around the Mid Atlantic office is that there maybe a second, one-hour TV show added to syndication. Nothing has been finalized as of yet. Word is the TV's having been doing well and fans have been writing in to see more. With the limited one-hour slot, a second show could get over more of the talent each week, as the regular roster is 30+ and each week only 8-10 guys get on the show. Formats and touring schedule is being looked at to see if this added show would be worth the added cost.
MACW will be heavily used in the upcoming Paul Boesch $200,000 Tag Team Tournament in Houston April 6th & 7th. Six teams and a Ricky Steamboat vs Ric Flair match already signed for that weekend. The Crockett's are extremely happy with this weekend. It will be a return to action for many of their stars as there is a small break in action after Coastal Clash. With all of the cost involved in putting together a live Closed Circuit event all across the territory, they gave the boys a little over a week off. With this Tag Team Grand Prix, it gives some of their big names a chance to get their name out there in another market and continue to build relationships with other promoters all across the United States. MACW may run a few high school shows that weekend with the remaining talent, but nothing has been decided this week. There is also talk of sending all the Mid Atlantic crew to Houston, just in case some of them are needed, so one of those two plans will be finalized for the workers this week.
We here there maybe a small change in the roster coming up. The Mexican team of Pierroth Jr and Blue Demon Jr. may return to Mexico for a while, and MACW will be looking for two new talents to come in and take their place. No names have been rumored as of yet.
Paul Jones is on the roster, but has been helping with locker room details in recent weeks. We've heard he will be debuting on TV soon, possibly at the Coastal Clash event. No word on who he is managing yet.
That is all the news fit to print for this week. Thanks for reading.
