Tom Zenk on WCW Pro Wrestling 1991

In 1990, WCW Pro Wrestling was picked up by WPIX-TV in New York City and WGN-TV in Chicago.

These two shows were localized versions of the show, with Tony Schiavone and Larry Zbysko hosting WGN's WCW Pro Chicago , while Jim Ross and Paul E. Dangerously hosted WPIX's WCW Pro New York .

These local versions featured the same matches as the national version of the show, with local spots inserted.

In mid 1991, the New York version moved to WCBS-TV. However, after only a few weeks, the show was replaced by WCW WorldWide.
