i attended several house shows during the Mid-South era in places like Winnfield and Jena, Louisiana.  Did these type of locations have house shows during the Tri-States era or did the promotikon just hit the more populated towns like Monroe and Alexandria when they ran shows in Louisiana?

During around 78, 79 they ran the tulsa fairgrounds every Monday night but the crowds were always horrible 100-200 people maybe.  This was Leroys group.

Both  Enterprises and Watt's Mid-South Sports ran spot shows in smaller towns and suburbs throughout the territory.  Each also, ran some house shows in towns close to the TV markets.  For instance, they would run Texarkana 4-6 times a year and promote it off KTBS or El Dorado once a quarter and promote off of KTVE which is also the station they promoted Monroe.  St. Bernard Parish ran New Orleans house shows for a time in the mid 70s.  Pine Bluff, AR did the same with Little Rock's house shows in the same time frame.  Sometimes it was due to building availability or the second sicty in the market was drawing better than the first.

Was this after the split in 79?  Or during the time frame that Watts was running two different Championship Wrestling TV shows sometime around 78?

I have no idea.  When I got to Tulsa in 1978 there was only to my memory and although sometimes the wrestling was good the crowds were poor but it was Leroys group.
