    Paul Dennis wrote in with these notes: I lived in the Norfolk VA - Raleigh North Carolina area area from 1966-1969 - the titles contested for in the area were The Southern Heavyweight Championship and The Southern Tag-Team Title (the Mid-Atlantic nomenclature was not yet in use)

    During that period the Southern Heavyweight Championship was held by Bob Orton, The Missouri Mauler (3 times), Johnny Weaver (2 times) , Klondike Bill and Tex McKenzie. The Southern Tag Team Championship went back and forth between Aldo Bogni & Bronco Lubich (with manager Colonel Homer O'Dell) and Johnny Weaver & George Becker although the Masked Infernos (with manager J.C. Dykes) also held it briefly as did the team of Lars & Gene Anderson.

    A fellow named Luther Lindsey held the U.S. Negro Heavyweight Championship, but there were few black wrestlers in the area so he only made a few defenses - he was a fine wrestler
