Wrestling comes out

of circus sideshows,

and Andr in a lot of ways

was one of these...

sideshow spectacles.

Anybody would pay a quarter

and line up to see him.

But you don't go back

a second or a third time.

So at a certain point, the move

with a wrestler like Andr

is to move on,

to migrate

to a different territory,

and, you know, try out

greener pastures.


One, two, three

I'm your boogie man,

that's what I am

I'm here to do

whatever I can...


The '70s was the heart

of the territorial era

in pro wrestling

in the United States.

( shouting )


I love to hurt people

and I'm gonna hurt you

very, very bad.


Heads up! Ooh! Oh!


When Andr came down,

professional wrestling

was divided up

into these fiefdoms

around the country.

I think at one time

there were as many

as 32 separate territories.

Hello again, everybody,

and welcome

to Mid-South Wrestling.

Welcome to another hour

of Florida Championship


Welcome again to an exciting

hour of wrestling.

Jerry Lawler:

You had certain stars

in your territory,

in your region,

and they were seen

as far as your local television

coverage would go.

Nobody had

a national TV show.


Lone Eagle rolling over,

and here they come back.

There they go again,

come on.

Do what you want,

I'm your boogie man...

You have got to wrestle me

right here and right now.

Do what you want,

I'm your boogie man


We had a TV show in Memphis.

200 miles north of Memphis,

then that started

the St. Louis territory.

Then they had a whole set

of different wrestling stars


And over to the east was

the Carolinas territory,

and they had a whole set

of different stars there.

Outside of Canada when Andr

first came to North America,
