July Ė September 1983 

 - Max Levy

World Class came roaring out the June 17, 1983 Reunion Arena show as one of the hottest promotions in the country. During the summer the heat just kept going up and up. The Von Erichs vs. Freebirds feud continued unabated. Devastation Incorporated turned its attentions towards the Von Erichs. Bruiser Brody was on fire. Jimmy Garvin continued to battle with David Von Erich and would later turn his attention to Kevin Von Erich. Iceman Parsons was a superstar and Chris Adams was climbing the ladder. When fans look back at the glory era of World Class Championship Wrestling, 1983 is what they remember. Everyone was healthy and in peak condition. The feuds were still fresh and the future seemed bright. Letís take a closer look at the summer of 1983.  

Everyone into the Talent Pool 

In June, Devastation Incorporated had sent the Honorable Arman Hussein packing from World Class along with NíTollah Yatsu. Hussein had been a fixture in the Dallas-Fort Worth wrestling scene for many years, but this was his final act in the promotion. Chavo Guerrero also departed after far too short a run. Still World Class had a very solid talent roster with some major names. Kerry, Kevin, and David Von Erich, Iceman Parsons, Bruiser Brody, Chris Adams, Johnny Mantell, Brian Adias, and Jose Lothario comprised the babyfaces of the promotion. World Class featured Michael Hayes, Terry Gordy, Buddy Roberts, Skandor Akbar, Kamala, Friday, The Mongol, Mr. Ebony, and Gorgeous Jimmy Garvin along with Sunshine comprised the heel faction. Mexican star and frequent visitor to Texas, Gran Markus came to World Class to face Jose Lothario. Although this is a somewhat small crew, it had great advantages for World Class. For one thing, all talent was paid on a percentage of the gate. A smaller talent pool meant that the money was split fewer ways. In other words, there was more for everyone, something that was tremendous for morale. Another great advantage was that they were able to push the talent on hand even harder because there were fewer people to worry about getting on TV. It all combined to put World Class Championship Wrestling on a serious tear.   More...
