NWA Wrestling Returns to WTBS (1984)

First thing that I like about this clip is actually unrelated to the wrestling. I really dig the TBS graphic and the coming up next clip. Notice how this was back when TBS started everything at a time that ended in five. My understanding is that Ted Turner chose to do that in order to hopefully stop people from flipping the channel by being out of sync with all the other stations.

As mentioned in the description of the video, this was the return of NWA wrestling to TBS after Black Saturday. The Georgia folks chose to just pick up where they left off and get straight into their wrestling again.

The funniest thing is watching Ole Anderson speak positively about people. It was kind of surreal.
