Wrestling From The Heartland: The Lost Developmental Territory Volume 3
You’re being shipped back to developmental! Head back into one of the largest pro wrestling empire’s feeder territories during the most rapidly changing era in our industry’s history as we present our third installment of some of the best matches and moments you never knew about! Cincinnati is the location as dozens of rookies and prospects look to find their place in a constantly evolving world, encounter legends and pitfalls, and ultimately become part of history themselves. Some reach superstardom, while others become a matter of “What If?…”. Legendary wrestler, promoter, trainer, and the man who oversaw the developmental process in Cincinnati, the incomparable and always opinionated Les Thatcher, sits down with Joe Dombrowski once again to share the stories behind the story and what went on when the cameras turned off!
Enjoy these rare matches, in their only surviving form, previously thought lost to time for over twenty years, but now yours town own as the third installment of one of the rarest sets of match footage ever put together!
*Kevin Nash appears as coach of The Natural Born Thrillers as Mark Jindrak, Chuck Palumbo, and Mike Sanders compete in a very rare triple-threat trios match. In other words — a NINE-man tag match!
