June 1982

 - Max Levy

The recent, unfortunate death of Chris Adams has once again brought into focus the immense personal problems and early deaths suffered by many of the stars of World Class Championship Wrestling. Undoubtedly far too many of the stars of World Class went to their graves far too soon. Fans have despaired over these tragedies in different ways. In some circles it has caused a terrible backlash against World Class in recent years. For some people it is very difficult to separate these tragedies from their enjoyment of the wrestling action. Many other fans and I look at things differently. While we mourn those who have passed, rather than dwell on the tragedies and negativity, we instead look to the happier days when all was well and World Class was one of the most exciting promotions in wrestling history. That’s the viewpoint from which these articles will be written. In the coming months we’ll be reminiscing about the many great stars, matches, angles, and feuds that made World Class Championship Wrestling so popular and exciting. On occasion the tragedies of real life will intrude and will be properly addressed and respected. However we won’t concentrate only on these tragedies. After all, the name of this web site is Kayfabe Memories and priority #1 will always be to look back at what made us enjoy World Class Championship Wrestling so much.

The Beginning:

World Class Championship Wrestling formally came into existence in April of 1982 when long time Dallas-Fort Worth promotion Big Time Wrestling was reconstituted into a new organization. World Class really broke new ground in the wrestling business. The renamed promotion had a revolutionary, high production values TV program taped with six cameras, high quality lighting, state of the art graphics, full instant replay capabilities, and interview and personality profile pieces that were largely unheard of at the time for a professional wrestling program. ECW, during its TNN, run never had production values of this quality, even nearly two decades after World Class Championship Wrestling debuted. This program was also syndicated across the nation, as well as foreign markets like Israel, to areas far beyond World Class’ promotional sphere, an early and often forgotten shot of the 1980s wrestling wars. World Class also used many younger wrestlers who were expressly marketed towards the youth and female demographics, as opposed to the adult males who had long made up such a large part of the pro wrestling audience.  More...
