Tracking the Territories 1984: Volume one - OUT NOW!

Recommended Posts





So yeah, I put my reviews of 1984 together so far and put them out as an eBook. Naturally the plan will be to cover the whole year in the end, but release them as I finish in separate volumes.

During a year that saw the birth of Hulkamania, what was happening across the territories as the wrestling world transitioned and the territorial system began its slow decline? In this book, Liam Byrne aims to review a range of wrestling television from 1984 to see how each promotion responded to the continued encroachment of the WWF. Alongside WWF reviews, there is coverage of Georgia, Memphis, Mid-South and Mid-Atlantic as well as several others. Relive one of the most important years in the history of wrestling.

Volume One includes television reviews from January to March 1984.



Check it out and (hopefully) enjoy!

To celebrate my birthday and a charity run I'm going to be doing this weekend, I've put the book on sale for the next four days. Do check it out now if you've been unsure up until this point as it will only cost you less than a quid. Can't argue with that!






US ($1.29)


Not sure if the countdown deal extends to other countries, but have a look and check it out if you can. Thanks!
