Special Episode of PSP This Tuesday Night
GeorgiaWrestlingHistory.com is noting the twenty-fifth anniversary of Black Saturday, the day Freddie Miller turned over the mic to Vince McMahon to open the July 14, 1984, edition of ?World Championship Wrestling?. For many fans of that generation, it marked the end of an era, not only ending some thirty years of locally televised wrestling from the Atlanta branch of the NWA, but also seemingly made it abundantly clear that McMahon’s World Wrestling Federation was taking over all major television outlets to become a global entity.
Les Thatcher and I will be using our weekly radio program, Peach State Pandemonium, to commemorate the anniversary. Along with our featured guests, Dave Meltzer and Mike Mooneyham, we will be looking back at the event and investigate its significance as it relates to the success of what McMahon’s enterprise has become today.
We encourage everyone to join us on Tuesday, July 14, 2009, and feel free to chime in with your thoughts and comments on the subject, as well as your memories of Georgia Championship Wrestling and your reaction to seeing McMahon instead of Gordon Solie when you tuned in to WTBS that evening.
Whether you have ties to the business or are simply a fan, feel free to listen to us at http://blogtalkradio.com/PSP, and if you wish to participate in the conversation, call us at (347) 324-5735. The broadcast will begin at 9:00 PM ET.
