|Thanksgiving Night - BattleMania|
Marcus Dillon vs Adam Windsor
Amarillo Territory Wrestling office, late seventies - Terry leaned back in his chair and said, "Junior, (He has always called me Junior) I know how we can make a million dollars! All we have to do is put up the deposits and lease all the major coliseums throughout the country five years in advance on Thanksgiving night. Then when all the wrestling promoters across the country try to run on Thanksgiving night, they will find that we hold the lease on the buildings, then we will sublease to the wrestling promoters at high prices. They will all go for it because Thanksgiving night is the biggest night of the year for professional wrestling. "
Everybody is off for the holiday and has been sitting around all day
visiting with relatives, eating turkey and watching football games on television
and by the evening they are ready to get out and do something. Of course
with it being Thanksgiving most merchants are closed and there is nothing
to do. It the days of the NWA every territory had a Thanksgiving show.

The night will end with a BattleMania Royal Rumble featuring the 7'
