So yeah, I put my reviews of 1984 together so far and put them out as an eBook. Naturally the plan will be to cover the whole year in the end, but release them as I finish in separate volumes.

During a year that saw the birth of Hulkamania, what was happening across the territories as the wrestling world transitioned and the territorial system began its slow decline? In this book, Liam Byrne aims to review a range of wrestling television from 1984 to see how each promotion responded to the continued encroachment of the WWF. Alongside WWF reviews, there is coverage of Georgia, Memphis, Mid-South and Mid-Atlantic as well as several others. Relive one of the most important years in the history of wrestling.

Volume One includes television reviews from January to March 1984.

 

 

Check it out and (hopefully) enjoy!
