Portland Wrestling Uncut!


Founded in 1925 by Herb Owen the original Portland Wrestling was a tradition every Saturday night in the Pacific Northwest! Broadcast from the Portland Sports Arena on KPTV 12, a lot of great wrestlers made their way through the region.

Until the mid 1980’s there were Wrestling Territories, each one had a promoter and a had a regional Heavyweight Champion. Almost all the territories were a member of the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) and they had The World Heavyweight Champion that would travel through the Territories defending the belt.


Something that Most people don’t realize today, is that Vince McMahon and the WWF/E destroyed this system when Vince took the WWF nationally with Wrestlemania, several of the Territory owners even threatened Vince with Death if he put them out of business.

Pacific Northwest Wrestling (Also known as Portland Wrestling) was run the Owen family for several generations, I remember going to Uncle Milts Pipe Organ Pizza and watching the Wrestlers. Until 1991 when they lost their Television outlet with KPTV, Portland Wrestling was the regional powerhouse of wrestling, with such talent as: Ric Flair, Andre the Giant, Stan Stasiak, WWE Hall of Famer Mil Mascaras, WWE Hall of Famer Rowdy Roddy Piper, Mr. Fuji, Chavo (Senior) and Gory Guerrero, Superstar Billy Graham, Mr. Perfect Curt Hennig and Larry Hennig, Rocky Johnson (The Rock’s Father), Scott Levy (Also known as Raven), Magnum T.A. , Gorilla Monsoon, Scott Norton, Pat Patterson, Tom Prichard, Harley Race, Buddy Rose, Dutch Savage, WWE Hall of Famer Jimmy Snuka, Greg Valentine, Jesse “The Body” Ventura,

It was during this time frame that Portland really became a stomping ground for Wrestling Elite, the Who’s Who of the Wrestling World.

Portland Wrestling, like all other territories in the late 80’s and early 90’s lost their appeal when Vince McMahon and the WWF machine were taking over. In 1992 when Don Owen retired from Wrestling, Sandy Barr bought the rights to the company and continued putting on Wrestling shows at his Flea Market.

It was a sad day when Professional Wrestling in Portland ceased to exist. There was for a little while a “New” Portland Wrestling that aired on the CW, but was short lived.

WWE Hall of Famer Rowdy Roddy Piper is bringing back Portland Wrestling to the air waves, with KPTV giving Studio space to Portland Wrestling and air time Saturday Evening, which was the traditional spot for Wrestling for a really long time. I will hopefully be able to go a live blog for Portland Wrestling Uncut tonight, After the World Series.

Get ready Portland! Wrestling is back!

Starting over.


Previous attempts have not worked as I would have wanted them to. So, it’s time for a “reboot” if you will.

What does this reboot consist of? Well, quite simply dedication. I haven’t dedicated myself to losing weight. It has gone to far, I’m 342lbs. Three Hundred and Forty Pounds. It’s embarrassing to say, and it’s a hard thing to come to terms with. Things that I used to be able to do with the greatest of ease, I’m finding gets me winded and it takes me a few minutes to catch my breath..

I don’t eat destructively or anything, I eat pretty modestly, I think. But the main issue is, I sit at my job, and I sit at home. I do get outside and work in the yard and garden. Obviously not enough to really get a calorie burn.

How will I change this? On my days off I have a membership at Planet Fitness, which 10 dollars a month isn’t bad. They have a 30 minute circuit, which is like a full body workout. I will hit the circuit 3 days a week and then when I get off work I will have to get into a groove of working out in the gym at work. For the time, I’m going to stick to cardio in the gym at work. I just need to get my body conditioned to be active.

When all else fails. Try, Try Again.
