History of Wrestling In The Superdome

In the summer of 1976, LeRoy McGuirk began holding big cards in the Louisiana Superdome. These were huge cards that featured not only the biggest stars of the territory, but also stars from other regions as well. One of the biggest cards was held on Christmas night, 1978. This was a one night tournament for the vacant United States Tag Title, which was won by none other than Andre the Giant and Dusty Rhodes.

All of the Superdome cards were great shows, featuring blow-off matches for many of the feuds taking place in the territory. Here are 2 clippings from the Wrestling News that discuss the entire history of these cards up until August, 1980. Enjoy!
