DragonKingKarl Classic Wrestling Show: What's so special about 1983?

1983 was one of the most important years in the history of professional wrestling.

Here's some examples:

  • The building of the WWF national expansion
  • The fall of the territories
  • The eventual birth of the major yearly event
  • Hulkamania
  • The fall of Jimmy Snuka
  • The success of Mid-South Wrestling
  • The best year of Southeastern Wrestling
  • An era of flux for Memphis
  • The red-hot Von Erichs vs. Freebirds war in World Class
  • The 1980s peak and beginnings of the fall of the AWA
  • The massive shows in Mexico
  • The birth of the IWGP title in Japan

There's a lot to talk about.
