Hello Kayfabe Memories fans and readers!!!  Welcome to the next installment of Houston Wrestling, and I hope you enjoy  In this edition of our journal, we will take a look back at some of the more memorable moments of wrestling at the Sam Houston Coliseum, home of Houston Wrestling.

Disclaimer:  I know that many more memorable moments occurred at the Coliseum both prior to 1980 (Rhodes-Koloff Coffin Match, Boesch/Gary Hart/Malenko, etc.) and after 1987 (Houstonís first and only Great American Bash).  I am just highlighting a few.  If you have a memorable moment that is not included on my list, head on over to the KM Message board and post under the Houston Wrestling section.  Speaking of the message board, itís a great place to get questions answered and to answer othersí questions, as well as talk about memories and highlights.  I peruse it often, and it is a great delight to read othersí questions and comments. 

Many of our Coliseum moments involve Mid-South stars, but some include stars outside the Mid-South Region.  So without further ado, here we go:

The Junkyard Dog vs. Hacksaw Butch Reed:  This feud dominated Mid-South during 1983, as Reed turned heel and feuded with JYD.  Reed and Dog traded the North American title during this time period.  The two headlined a Sam Houston Coliseum card in 1983.  That they headlined was not significant, as they were headlining all across the territory.  That they were headlining in Houston was very significant.  At the time, African American wrestlers were not considered headliners much.  Of course you had Bobo Brazil, and Abdullah The Butcher.  But for two guys to headline a card in Houston like JYD and Reed did in 1983, it was very important.  The card was a sell out, and JYD defeated Reed by DQ to continue their feud, which never really closed, as JYD went to the WWF in 1984.   More...
