Magnum TA’s Car Wreck: Terry Allen (or Magnum TA) was a future World’s champion in the making. He had an appeal with the fans like very few wrestlers had during the mid-80s and was being groomed by the NWA to be “the next Ric Flair”. In October of 1986, Magnum TA left a bar in Charlotte, NC one night and got into a horrible car wreck. Terry Allen was paralyzed on the left side of his body and never wrestled again. Magnum would eventually return to the NWA in a non-wrestling capacity. He was used in interview segments, but you could tell his passion was just not there.
Magnum T.A. briefly worked as a interviewer for the National Wrestling Alliance.
