"This is Continental Championship Wrestling, and we've got one action-packed, red hot hour..." - Gordon Solie.

Hearing those words was how one Alabama teenager who was a little too young to date would spend one hour of his Saturday night.  That teen was yours truly, and with those words by Gordon Solie, somewhere around mid August, 1985, I became a wrestling junkie. I had never cared about wrestling before, ever, but before long, tuning into the battles in Boutwell Auditorium each week became a habit. When dating "got in the way," I just popped a tape in the VCR, and couldn't go to bed on Saturday without watching what the guys had to offer.

I've been asked by Vince and the folks at Kayfabe Memories to re-live the era of Continental Championship Wrestling and the Continental Wrestling Federation, and I'll be honest - I couldn't be happier. I've got a tough act to follow, though - my good friend Mike Calloway from Dothan, AL did a great job with this. It's not going to be easy filling his shoes, but I hope that, as I cover Continental Wrestling - and in its latter days, the Continental Wrestling Federation - I can describe the period well enough that you guys will feel like you're sitting in your living rooms, watching The Dirty White Boy and Dr. Tom Prichard duke it out, that you will feel like you're sitting in the Houston Co. Farm Center in Dothan, waiting to see what crazy angle "Hot Stuff" Eddie Gilbert will try this week.

Of course, before Continental became Continental, there was Southeastern Championship Wrestling, one of the best regional promotions in history. I hope you'll check out the Southeastern section, written exceptionally well by Jeff Luce, to read up on how tradition-filled this promotion actually was.  But if you want to pick up right here, I've been asked to give a little introduction, and maybe it will help you out.

As Calloway mentioned in one of his Southeastern-Continental memories (one of his best, and most detailed), Ron Fuller, known to wrestling fans as "The Tennessee Stud," actually owned the promotion, for the most part, through the 1980's. Fuller is the son of wrestler-promoter Buddy Fuller (actually, the family name was Welch, but they wrestled under 'Fuller').  More...
