WWE Hall of Famer Cowboy Bill Watts' Oklahoma-based territory was a hotbed for up-and-coming talent. These young Superstars helped the promotion rise to national prominence with Supershows at the New Orleans Superdome and Sam Houston Coliseum. Future Legends Junkyard Dog, Ted DiBiase, "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan and the famed rivalry between The Midnight Express and The Rock 'n' Roll Express all were born here.
