He was a wrestling insider who had great power in WCW, but his story was never told ... until now.

In Wrestling Perspective #103 Tommy Edwards reveals his untold story and he sheds new light on the wrestling history.

The name Tommy Edwards may not ring a bell with many wrestling fans, but he was a key player in the dying days of Jim Crockett's promotion and during the early days of Ted Turner's ownership of WCW.

For four years Edwards was the studio director and producer of the company and had a hand in shaping the wrestling product that was broadcast to millions of fans each week on WTBS. 

In Part I of an interview, available in Issue #103, Edwards talks openly and honestly about all the heavy-hitters from that day including Ric Flair, Dusty Rhodes, Jim Ross, Tony Schiavone, Ricky Steamboat, Lex Luger, and Jim Herd. 

The interview is an insider's perspective into what many long-time fans feel was the last great wrestling promotion in the business. 

It's been over a decade since Edwards was unceremoniously fired by Turner and he's got a lot to get off his chest. 

In this incredible interview, Edwards discusses ...

  • How he ended up as director and producer of the TBS studio show.
  • His unique TV production style. 
  • The real Ric Flair.
  • Why he got fired and who was behind it.
  • His version of the infamous, Saturday night "repeat episode" disaster. 
  • How stupid and questionable executive decisions damaged WCW's future.
These topics and many others are addressed by Edwards in Wrestling Perspective #103.

Then read these excerpts below: 

Edwards on what life was like on the road:
"It was like you were with a rock band. What blew my mind was the first time I went to a hotel and I said my name to spot my room and a guy came up and said, 'You're the director.' I was like, 'You know who I am?' It was like, they read credits!"
Edwards on Jim Ross:
"That was the biggest back-stabbing piece of sh** I ever saw in my life."
Edwards on the advice he gave Lex Luger:
"Lex had no personality. None. And he couldn't let himself go. Like I used to tell Lex, 'Lex, touch 'em. Just reach out and let 'em touch your hand. You're this hunk. You're this good-lookin' thing they all want you, but you know, you're too cold.' He's like, 'Well, I'm married.' I'm like, 'I ain't sayin' sleep with 'em. Can't you kinda like be just a little nicer than you are?'"
Edwards on why Ron Simmons would never succeed as WCW champion: 
"Ron ain't it. I'm sorry guys. Ya'll can play that all-American football sh** all you want to, that ain't gonna get it. The ladies are not gonna be attracted to Ron Simmons. (laughs) Hell, I looked at his wife. I wasn't attracted to her, so I knew right off, he ain't got it boys and girls."
Edwards on his favorite matches:
"Dusty Rhodes/Ric Flair matches in the late Eighties were some of the best matches ever. Those two were the best ... just pure entertainment and wrestling. They didn't do all the, what I would call the hokey-dokey stuff to the audience. These two really went at it."
Edwards on the two Ric Flairs:
"He did have two separate lives. And, it was amazing, because when I'd see Ric in New Orleans, that wasn't the Ric Flair you saw in Charlotte. It was as if once he got off the plane in Charlotte, he became his normal self. But when he got on the plane, he became Ric Flair."
Edwards on Jim Herd:
"Jim kind of undermined everything I did."
