CWF, 1985 – Ric Flair was in the midst of what was arguably his most dominant NWA World Heavyweight Title run. Wahoo McDaniel was one of the many legendary stars to be featured in Eddie Graham’s Championship Wrestling From Florida promotion, a territory for the National Wrestling Alliance. This match was the main event of the live syndicated show Battle Of The Belts, which aired on September 2nd, 1985 from The Sundome in Tampa Florida. The event was dedicated to the memory of Graham, who took his own life earlier in the year.
It’s also worth noting that this event was in the wake of Hurricane Elaina, which caused the evacuation of 500,000 people.
Gordon Solie and Mike Graham call the action!
