Here's a look at the game world on May 1, 1983

2. World Class Championship Wrestling, -1, (5)

3. Southwest Championship Wrestling, +5 (6)

--Some moving going on with CWA moving up two spots nationally and worldwide. Southwest continues their meteoric rise. They are now the third ranked company in America and sixth worldwide.

--The AWA looks to be in a steady decline. I will “break away” from the AWA and NWA soon (although there was no alliance to start the game) and focus on a new CWA World Heavyweight title with an eye on unification with the Southern and Mid-America titles. A TV title might also be added to the mix to defend on every episode of Championship Wrestling.

--Championship Wrestling from Florida really surprises me. With a roster of Dusty, Orton, Windham, and The Snake, they’ve only averaged a 58 in their five shows from April. Jake Roberts was part of the two highest-rated matches in April but is stuck in the midcard with wins over their lower midcard , openers, and enhancement talent. Dusty is the head booker.

American companies in the red
Central States at -$589,686

World Wrestling Council at -$259,560

World Wrestling Association at -$167,032

Southeastern at -$65,106

--I’ve noticed that for all of the in-ring success Southwest has had, they are losing around $20,000 per month. They sit as just over $67,000 in the bank right now. World Class and Georgia, on the other hand, have over $2.2 million on hand. CMLL is the richest company in the world right now with $3.3 million.

--The wrestling landscape in America will probably look very different in the next two to three months.
