Canadian Heavyweight Title History Book Project

Andrew Calvert at announced an exciting book project on his website in late June.

"We are excited to announce that a book on the history of the Canadian Title as defended in Toronto 1978-1984 is beginning to take shape," he wrote to his website visitors.  "It will include both the champs and the bouts as well as the history of the belt alongside some features of the era."

It was during this era that many of the stars appearing regularly on Toronto cards were booked through the office of Jim Crockett Promotions, and as a result of that, we have a great deal of interest in this project here at the Mid-Atlantic Gateway.

Calvert is inviting longtime Toronto fans to contribute.

"Some friends and fellow fans will be contributing and we would love to feature other fan photos and memories of the Canadian Title and the M-A era here in general," he wrote. "It is turning into a collaborative effort and it would be great to include other fans to help tell the story."

If you would like to contribute in any way to this project, you can contact Andrew at his website or on Twitter at @mapleleafwrest1.
