Magnum T.A. Leaves Hospital

Wilmington Morning Star – November 29, 1986

CHARLOTTE – Professional wrestler Magnum T.A.,who suffered spinal injuries when his $53,000 Porsche hit a utility pole in Charlotte, has been released from Charlotte Memorial Hospital, officials say.

Magnum, whose real name is Terry Wayne Allen, was released Wednesday and was admitted to Charlotte Rehabilitation Hospital, according to a spokeswoman with Jim Crockett Promotions. Magnum, a Tidewater, Va., native who was hospitalized Oct. 16, was listed in good condition at the hospital Friday, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Meanwhile Thursday night, spectators at Starrcade 86, the annual wrestling extravaganza that draws thousands of fans to the Greensboro Coliseum, said they missed Magnum.

“It’s not the same here without him,” said Faye Putnam of Shelby, who spent $120 to buy tickets for her husband and two children.  “He is Starrcade.  He’s my man.”

“I like Magnum.  Everybody likes him.  It’s a whole lot different without him,” said Ricky Dabbs, 15, of Reidsville.
