World Championship Wrestling

This was the main wrestling program for Crockett Promotions on WTBS. For most of 1985 and 1986 the show was taped on Saturday mornings at the TBS studios on Techwood Drive in Atlanta. It traditionally aired at 6:05 PM ET, but occasionally aired at other similar timeslots.

The program had it's origins back to the early 1970s when the NWA Georgia territory wrestling promotion began airing its Atlanta show on the broadcast channel WTCG channel 17. Georgia Championship Wrestling was a ratings juggernaut when WTCG became WTBS and went national as the nation's first "superstation" on cable television.

In 1982, the promotion changed the name of the program to World Championship Wrestling, and it kept that name until the end of the GCW era, then through the WWF era, and on into the Crockett era on TBS.
