Featured External Link: 1982 Tournament Coda: What if Toronto?

Wondering how to re-invent the site a bit, everybody on Facebook and other platforms. Podcasts are in - reading is (mostly) out. I still like to read so in the meantime will feature some external links that are connected to Toronto and Ontario wrestling and compile them on the sidebar.

Next up in our Featured External Link is a section of a great series by Dick Bourne of the Mid-Atlantic Gateway on the 1982 World tag tournament.

We didn't have one here in Toronto- but what if we did?

It was a lot of fun looking at what-could-have-been if we had a round of the tourny here. At the same time they were running it in the U.S. We did have a tournament here but it was a Cadillac Tournament. We're not sure why they never ran it here. It WAS planned. When you get to the end of the article you will see Johnny Weaver on MLW TV talking about having a tag tourny in Toronto in the near future.

Again, you are probably familiar with the Gateway, in my opinion the best of all the wrestling sites. Dick and David Chappell have done a great job- and Toronto fans will love all of the info presented from the time that we were working with the Mid-Atlantic area.

All of their Toronto content can be found here
