1972

During this year, wrestling was broadcast on Saturday afternoons and weekday evenings. The taping schedule varied from week to week depending on the location. Where no taping date is given, the matches will usually have been broadcast live (on Saturdays) or later the same evening (on Wednesdays).

From September, the weekday showings moved from Wednesday to Tuesday. This also marked the end of live/same day broadcasts, with the taping schedule becoming much more haphazard.
