The Rise (Again) of a Phenom(inal) Deadman
Mark Callaway is currently in college and after growing up watching WCCW on television decided that he would like to persue professional wrestling as a career. Mark at the time was also on the school's basketball team and the coach wanted him to make a more dedicated commitment to the team and quit wrestling. Mark, feeling that he had to make a choice, dropped from the basketball team and continue his wrestling training. Here are his skills ratings at this time:
Strong style: F
Mat Wrestling: F
Chain Wrestling: F
Star quality: B+
As you can see, he is just a raw talent that needs to improve in many different skills.
In the beginning...
Due to having to decide between basketball and wrestling, I have decided to quit the basketball team. The coach told me that I probably could have had a promising professional basketball career but I love wrestling too much in order to continue my training.
I have a part-time job as a bouncer at a bar in Arlington, Texas, and I have also decided to leave the college. I am felling bad that I won't be getting my degree but I want to pursue a career in wrestling.
I made a phone call to a local wrestling promotion, Houston Championship Wrestling, which is in my hometown.
I will be following all of the title matches in the territories and also the careers of the following workers:
Jushin "Thunder" Liger
Road Warrior Animal
Road Warrior Hawk
Superstar Billy Graham
The Great Kabuki
The Great Muta
The Iron Sheik
These are wrestlers who either have a dynasty here, or in the WS1 dynasty forum, or are favorites of the readers of my other dynasties. There will be quarterly updates as far as the records and the territories that these people are/were in. The updates will be seen after the months of March, June, September and December.
Are there any others that you all would like to see followed?

Houston Championship Wrestling, May 1983
Tiger Conway Jr
King Kong Bundy
The Super Destroyer
Kamala the Ugandan Giant
The Masked Superstar
The Legion of Doom stable was far and away my all-time favorite - and you're already charting Jardine and Hawk. If it wouldnt be too much trouble, could you track Jake Roberts' career also?
And good luck working Houston! The undercard is pretty much the pits, but they are very top heavy. Just make sure to stay away from Gino Hernandez! You don't want Callaway picking up any bad habits.
The Undertaker learned alot about wrestling psychology from Jake the Snake during his first year or so in the WWF.
