Welcome to the
Mid-South Wrestling website
also known as 'Cowboy Bill Watts,' a
former professional wrestler, ranked in the top ten worldwide
for over 25 years. Headlining events at Madison Square

Miami Civic Center, St Louis Keel Auditorium, along with
key events in Chicago, Minneapolis, Vancouver, Winnipeg,
Indianapolis, and many other major cities as well as many
smaller cities and towns all over the US and Canada. He
became known 'world-wide' as a true wrestling superstar---whose
reign as The North American Champion made that title one
of the most sought after championships in the industry.
In 1984, 'on top of his game' 'something
was missing' and his life started going through a change----he
had a spiritual experience with His Savior, Jesus Christ.
Bill's personal relationship with His Lord finally has
become the most important thing for his life----'his hero'
is Jesus Christ. He still has great pride in his wrestling
career, but hopes in this the autumn of his life, he can
better contribute by sharing his experiences and how 'his
choices ' had consequences. This is featured in his book:
