Home Of Continental Wrestling Likely To Be Destroyed

Courtesy of (my handsome friend) Karl Stern:

New Birmingham, AL mayor Larry Langford asked the City Council today to demolish Boutwell Auditorium in downtown Birmingham. Boutwell was the biggest building in the old NWA Southeastern territory and home to the TV tapings for Continental wrestling beginning in 1985. Both the WWF and NWA promoted shows at the building. Randy Savage made his WCW debut there as well. I will talk more about the history of Boutwell Auditorium in a new Karl Stern Classic Wrestling Audio Show this week at FigureFourOnline.com
