Review at Slam! Wrestling
A trip down memory lane, The Canadian Heavyweight Title: The Complete History 1978-1984, published in co-operation with the Mid-Atlantic Gateway website, is a remarkable, compelling, and long-overdue tale about a championship belt that shared the stage with some of the most respected titles in professional wrestling history...

    In 1978 as the Toronto territory was taking off with the young stars of Mid-Atlantic wrestling, promoter Frank Tunney introduced a local championship. The Canadian Heavyweight Title, to be defended by the top star in Maple Leaf Wrestling.

      During those years ‘the Mid-Atlantic era’, the area was one of the most exciting and important territories in the wrestling world.  

    In this book we take a look back at the emergence of the Canadian Title in Toronto. The champions and challengers. Dino Bravo, Greg Valentine, Dewey Robertson, Hossein the Arab, Angelo Mosca Sr. & Jr. Big John Studd, and more. 

    Join us as we revisit the big cards, the tournaments, the title belt, and other memorable slices of Maple Leaf Wrestling from 1978-1984.
