UWF Mid South Wrestling – The Untold Story – Wrestling Territories Documentary
The Universal Wrestling Federation was owner Bill Watts’ attempt at taking his Mid-South Wrestling promotion to a national level in 1986.
The attempt failed and in 1987, Watts sold the organization to Jim Crockett Promotions and it became part of what would later be known as World Championship Wrestling. The promotion had started out as an NWA Territory known as NWA Tri-State
founded by former territory wrestler, Leroy McGuirk in the 1950s.
Tri-State promoted in Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi, the same area that Mid-South wrestling ran before attempting to go national.
In 1990, Herb Abrams started an unrelated wrestling promotion with the same name.
