Based out of Tulsa Oklahoma, wrestler-turned-promoter Leroy McGuirk, who had been blinded in an accident, founded Leroy McGuirk Championship Wrestling in the late 1950's.

A long-standing member of the National Wrestling Alliance, McGuirk controlled the bookings for the NWA World junior heavyweight championship, one of only two titles officially recognized by the alliance.

Commonly referred to as "the Tri-States area" (due to running the three-state territory of Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisana and having like-named titles), McGuirk produced a popular television show called "Championship Wrestling."

In 1979, McGuirk split with longtime booker Bill Watts, who set up his own shop, taking over Louisana and Arkansas from McGuirk and Mississippi, which had been controlled by the Culkin family.

In 1982, former JCP mastermind George Scott took over the book for McGuirk and changed the brand name to "Midwest Championship Wrestling." Shortly after these changes, the company folded.
