--Ricky Steamboat has signed a PPA deal with Mid-South. It would be nice to have him right now but that won’t happen for at least another two plus months.
--All Japan moves to cult size. They join Georgia and CMLL as the only other cult promotions.
--Freddie Blassie has retired and is now out of the business.
--Southwest Championship Wrestling has cut production costs as a cost-saving measure. This looks like the first step to cut losses. They are already $44,000 in debt.
--I find myself putting Lawler in more tag matches as of late. After RW&B and just past the six month mark, I’ll need to look over the roster for something fresher.
