Relive Mid-Atlantic Wrestling Christmas Day Shows on the Gateway!

We've linked to an old feature that is still found on the Mid-Atlantic Gateway archive that features the newspaper ads for Jim Crockett Promotions Christmas Day shows in the years 1968-1979. We will eventually get around to adding 1980-1988, but until then enjoy these great memories from days gone by!
