Smoky Mountain Wrestling (SMW)

Inactive promotion in the Americas region

Current name: Smoky Mountain Wrestling
Current abbreviation: SMW
Status: Inactive
Location: Morristown, Tennessee, USA
Active Time: 1992 - 1995
Names: Smoky Mountain Wrestling (1992 - 1995)
Abbreviations: SMW
Owners: Jim Cornette & Rick Rubin (1992 - 1995)
Die Promotion war zwischen 1992 und 1995 in den Südstaaten der USA, speziell Kentucky und Tennessee, eine der erfolgreichen Old School Promotions ihrer Zeit. Besitzer von Smoky (nicht Smokey) Mountain Wrestling war Jim Cornette, der zuvor jahrelang als Manager in der NWA und WCW aktiv gewesen war und nun mit der Promotion zeigen wollte, dass er es besser konnte. Um den ärgsten Rivalen zu der Zeit, die ECW aus Pennsylvania und deren Booker und Intimfeind von Cornette, Paul Heyman, zu bezwingen, ging SMW eine Partnerschaft mit der WWF ein. Genau diese Partnerschaft bzw. Cornettes zunehmende Eingliederung in die WWF bedeuteten jedoch schließlich das Ende der Promotion, die für viele spätere Superstars eine erste große Station war.

[8.0] "I wish it were still running. This is the perfect distillation of Jim Cornette's vision of old school territorial rasslin'. Always great matches. They had Madison Square Garden-like crowds in tiny high school gyms in Kentucky and West Virginia. Proof that such a concept can succeed. It just needs the brilliant mind of Jim Cornette."
