NWA World Wide Wrestling originally was a small time pro wrestling show filmed out of the TV studios of WRAL and WPCQ in Raliegh and Charlotte, North Carolina respectively from 1975 till 1983. World Wide Wrestling moved into larger Coliseums under Jim Crockett Promotions lead by Jim Crockett Junior and his brother David Crockett. The shows were filmed during the week, edited to one hour, transmitted to the local "Big 3" stations, and finally shown on TV across America. By decades end the NWA was in dire straights as Jim Crockett tried to compete with Vince McMahon who during the 1980's broke from the traditional "Wrestling Territory System" went and turned WWF into a big time corporate sports entertainment company making deals with MTV USA Network and NBC. And he systematically slaughtered the competition with his WWF Product. Jim Crockett Promotions eventually sold out to Ted Turner and World Wide Wrestling survived under Ted Turner and Eric Bischoff as they moved the show off the road to Disney MGM Studios in Orlando, Florida. World Wide from then on became a shell of it's once great self and was then finally turned into what WWF Superstars of Wrestling eventually became a "Recap Show". World Wide Wrestling was officially the last official broadcast program of WCW the weekend that followed the buy out of WCW from Time Warner/AOL to Vince McMahon and WWF.
