Jim Nelson went through several different spellings and pronunciations of his Russian gimmick character before eventually settling on Boris Zuhkov.  It was alternately spelled Zurkoff and Zurkov early on...  Super Olympia (Arn Anderson) lost his mask on January 23, 1984 to Jacques Rougeau in a hair verses mask match.  The Midnight Express, Inc. is done.  Dennis Condrey left months earlier to go to Memphis and was replaced by Ron Starr.  Norvell Austin struck a pedestrian with his car and left the area (it was said he injured his shoulder but this was a cover story for his leaving) and was replaced by Wayne Farris.  Ron Starr beat up an underage fan who hit the ring and was arrested but ultimately exonerated at trial but left the area afterward to go to Stampede.

Notes from January Wrestling Observer Newsletter: The Southeastern belt was held up after a bout between champion Jos LeDuc and Robert Fuller and a tournament was held 12-03-1983 in Dothan, AL won by Bob Armstrong.  Bob dropped the belt during Christmas week to Jerry Stubbs, the unmasked Mr. Olympia.  Bob also lost a few no DQ matches with (NWA) World champ Ric Flair including January 2, 1984 in Birmingham with Pops (Bob) losing by DQ.  Bob and son Brad have now left for Georgia while son Scott is still around.  With both Robert Fuller and Jimmy Golden returning and Bob Armstrong leaving apparently the Fuller-Welch family is back in control.  Ken Lucas beat Rip Rogers for the U.S. Junior title then won a rematch where he got possession of Rogers valet Brenda Britton for a week.  The following week Lucas wrestles Les Thornton for the NWA World Junior title and Les was disqualified when Rogers interfered.  Super Olympia (Arn Anderson/Marty Lunde) turned on partner Jacques Rougeau and is now a villain.  The two first met on 12-03-1983 in the Southeastern title tournament and their bout turned into a brawl.  Super Olympia apologized and to make up for it agreed to team with Jacques against tag champions Ron Starr & Wayne Farris on TV and ended quickly when Super O refused to tag Jacques and then joined in on a triple team on him.  Super O then defeated and "injured" Jacques brother Armand Rougeau.  He is only in the area for one week and I'm (Dave Meltzer) am told he is really bad.  Newcomers are Boris Zurkoff and Charlie Cook.

Notes from March Wrestling Observer Newsletter (related to January 1984):  Ric Flair was in the area and pinned Bob Armstrong on January 2, 1984 in Birmingham.  Bob Armstrong has left for Georgia Championship Wrestling then was injured in a car accident or a brawl very seriously (this would be the weight lifting accident that nearly killed him- Karl)...  January 9, 1984 Birmingham, AL saw Charlie Cook win the Alabama title from Jerry Stubbs.  The main event on that card was scheduled to be Robert Fuller verses Jos LeDuc but neither man showed up.  They did show up on January 16 for a loser leave town cage match which Robert Fuller won sending LeDuc back to Memphis... In November 1983 this group had announced that loser leave town matches were banned and anyone who lost one could return.  Charlie Cook pinned Jerry Stubbs in the semi-final that night which drew 900.  Jacques Rougeau beat Super Olympia (Arn Anderson) also...  January 23 saw Jacques Rougeau beat Super Olympia in a hair verses mask match.  Super Olympia was revealed as Arn Anderson or Marty Lunde if you wish...  Ken Lucas beat Rip Rogers.  Robert Fuller & Jimmy Golden & Charlie Cook beat Jerry Stubbs & Boris Zurkoff & Wayne Farris. While newcomer David Morgan (is he the very good English wrestler? (yes)) beat Franklin Hayes who is billed as Michael Hayes brother (and really may be (he wasn't, it was John Tatum, one of Michael's best friends) and was so bad in Memphis he was let go after a week)...  Sonny King is also new to the circuit...  The NWA Southeastern tag team titles haven't been mentioned since Ron Starr who co-held the belts with Wayne Farris disappeared a month ago. (They were filled this month by the new team of Arn Anderson & Jerry Stubbs).  

Notes from April Wrestling Observer Newsletter (related to January 1984):  Jerry Stubbs & Arn Anderson, formerly Mr. Olympia & Super Olympia, and feuding with one another won a tag tournament January 15, 1984 in Montgomery, AL.  The tournament was necessary when Ron Starr, who held the titles with Wayne Farris, left the area.  Starr is now in Calgary, by the way.
