Wrestling in Winston-Salem

Remember the Pro Wrestling shows presented by Jim Crockett Promotions in the old Winston-Salem Coliseum? I attended shows there from 1965 into the eighties. From 1964-1974, the Championship Wrestling program on WGHP channel 8 in High Point played a huge role in advertising these shows. Charlie Harville would interview the wrestlers at ringside about these arena shows. To me those were the glory years of wrestling in the Piedmont.
