Shreveport has a historic place with the pro wrestling world. The roots of pro wrestling are buried DEEP in the fabric of the Shreveport community. Decades ago, Shreveport became a main landing spot for the Mid-South Wrestling Association. The names that graced the marquee for these events ended up becoming household names by the late 80s and early 90s.

Every time WWE comes through the Shreveport area, thousands of people come out to see the show. The same can’t be said for every market today. WWE has struggled to sell out arenas all across the US.

Wrestlers like Ted DiBiase, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Mike Sharpe, and maybe most importantly, The Junk Yard Dog all fought in Shreveport. A good portion of the wrestlers who came through to entertain the crowds in the Shreveport area have ended up as WWE Hall of Fame members.

Multiple different championships were defended and won during matches in Shreveport, and with the explosion of the WWE Network online, you can see a lot of it. The online network has worked to acquire many tape libraries to upload. There are many matches you can now watch on the network.

So with Shreveport being such a wrestling rich town, it only makes sense for Shreveport to have a daily pro wrestling radio show. So we'd like to welcome Wrestling Observer Radio to the 1130 The Tiger lineup starting Monday at 7pm!

You'll be able to hear the rumors and innuendo, the backstage facts, and expert insight to what's happening around the pro wrestling world.

You're going to want to make sure you catch Wrestling Observer Radio every weeknight on 1130 The Tiger, that's 1130AM KWKH and online at, because this show is 6 stars every night, even outside of Tokyo.
