Razorback
The Razorback Wrestling Alliance (RWA) was run by Sam McGuinness and Sam Avey III out of Fort Smith, Arkansas. It ran cards throughout Arkansas from 1972 until 1980. It also ran cards in Springfield, Missouri in 1977 and 1978. The RWA recognized their own titles as well as those from NWA Tri-State (once owned by Avey's grandfather). In 1979, McGuinness bought out Avey's share of the company.

At its peak, thirty-three wrestlers were under RWA contract. In April 1980, the roster was down to ten wrestlers. When the MVW bought the RWA, seven wrestlers came over with McGuinness. All but the All-American Alcoholics had gimmick changes. McGuinness even came out of retirement and donned the mask to become Mr. Arkansas.
