A Thanksgiving Feast!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you from everyone here at the Mid-Atlantic Gateway!

Along with your turkey and pumpkin pie, I hope you'll feast on these great memories of Thanksgiving events 30 and 40 years ago:

The Forgotten Prelude to Starrcade '85
When most folks think of events leading to the Flair/Rhodes main event at Starrcade '85, they think of Flair and the Andersons turning on Dusty in the cage at the Omni. However, it got it's start much earlier than that. Read about an angle and an important part of that story largely forgotten in the saga of Starrcade '85.

Thanksgiving Retro: Greensboro and Norfolk 1975
A look back at a huge night of action in the Mid-Atlantic territory featuring NWA champion Jack Brisco, U.S. champion Terry Funk, Wahoo McDaniel, Paul Jones, Andre the Giant, Superstar Billy Graham, Gene and Ole Anderson and so many more!

Thanksgiving Memories: Starrcade '85 Turns 30
Hard to believe it's been 30 years since Dusty Rhodes and Ric Flair met in the main event of Starrcade '85. That card was loaded and was spilt between Atlanta and Greensboro and was seen so may other places on closed-circuit television.

And we keep rolling through the weekend! Stay tuned for more! Scroll down for all of these Thanksgiving week updates.

Wishing you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving!
