Portland Wrestling Uncut!

Founded in 1925 by Herb Owen the original Portland Wrestling was a tradition every Saturday night in the Pacific Northwest! Broadcast from the Portland Sports Arena on KPTV 12, a lot of great wrestlers made their way through the region.

Until the mid 1980’s there were Wrestling Territories, each one had a promoter and a had a regional Heavyweight Champion. Almost all the territories were a member of the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) and they had The World Heavyweight Champion that would travel through the Territories defending the belt.


Something that Most people don’t realize today, is that Vince McMahon and the WWF/E destroyed this system when Vince took the WWF nationally with Wrestlemania, several of the Territory owners even threatened Vince with Death if he put them out of business.

Pacific Northwest Wrestling (Also known as Portland Wrestling) was run the Owen family for several generations, I remember going to Uncle Milts Pipe Organ Pizza and watching the Wrestlers. Until 1991 when they lost their Television outlet with KPTV, Portland Wrestling was the regional powerhouse of wrestling, with such talent as: Ric Flair, Andre the Giant, Stan Stasiak, WWE Hall of Famer Mil Mascaras, WWE Hall of Famer Rowdy Roddy Piper, Mr. Fuji, Chavo (Senior) and Gory Guerrero, Superstar Billy Graham, Mr. Perfect Curt Hennig and Larry Hennig, Rocky Johnson (The Rock’s Father), Scott Levy (Also known as Raven), Magnum T.A. , Gorilla Monsoon, Scott Norton, Pat Patterson, Tom Prichard, Harley Race, Buddy Rose, Dutch Savage, WWE Hall of Famer Jimmy Snuka, Greg Valentine, Jesse “The Body” Ventura,

It was during this time frame that Portland really became a stomping ground for Wrestling Elite, the Who’s Who of the Wrestling World.

Portland Wrestling, like all other territories in the late 80’s and early 90’s lost their appeal when Vince McMahon and the WWF machine were taking over. In 1992 when Don Owen retired from Wrestling, Sandy Barr bought the rights to the company and continued putting on Wrestling shows at his Flea Market.

It was a sad day when Professional Wrestling in Portland ceased to exist. There was for a little while a “New” Portland Wrestling that aired on the CW, but was short lived.

WWE Hall of Famer Rowdy Roddy Piper is bringing back Portland Wrestling to the air waves, with KPTV giving Studio space to Portland Wrestling and air time Saturday Evening, which was the traditional spot for Wrestling for a really long time. I will hopefully be able to go a live blog for Portland Wrestling Uncut tonight, After the World Series.

Get ready Portland! Wrestling is back!

My response to an Obama for America email.

I got this email today…

Obama - Biden
I’m asking you to dig deep, Dan:We just found out that Mitt Romney and the Republicans outraised us in the first half of this month, putting us $45 million behind during these crucial final days.

The math here is pretty simple: With that cash advantage, they can outspend us by $4 million per day, every day, for the final 11 days.

We know what that means — more and more misleading, negative ads trashing the President, you, me, and everything we’ve accomplished together over the past four years.

And we know what we have to do. It’s time for you to get on board.

Close the gap — chip in $5 or more now.

After a year and a half of building and fighting and getting ready for Election Day, we cannot allow ourselves to be outdone at the very end.

On November 7th, when this campaign is behind us, you’ll be glad you stepped up now.

Here’s the good news: Any donation you make today automatically enters you for a free trip to Chicago where you’ll meet the President and have front-row tickets to his speech on Election Night.

Don’t wait any longer. Please make a donation right now:

More soon,

And here is my reply…

See, this is what makes no sense to me… How exactly does spending a bunch of money to buy a persons vote, because that is basically what this sounds like.. How does raising all of this money so it can be spent to campaign against the other person, make any sense? If the American people want to vote for someone, spending a bunch of money isn’t going to change their mind, and if it does, this country is in far worse shape than i thought. A bunch of mindless sheep who will follow whoever offers the best deal…or can fudge the facts just enough in their favor.

I just don’t understand…

What makes a good President…

I’m a little tired of hearing people arguing about how their candidate will do a better job, but I haven’t seen anybody really explain why THEY think their candidate will be better than the other guy.

So I ask the question, “Why do YOU think your candidate will make a better president?” answer in the comments below.

I’m not looking for an argument. I’m looking for a cordial debate, backed with Facts.
