The tv show Wrestling at the Chase was taped here at the Chase Park Plaza Hotel and it aired in St. Louis on channel 11 for almost 25 years (1959-1983). It was promoted by Sam Muchnick, president of the St. Louis Wrestling Club and also president of the National Wrestling Alliance, the national promotion that for many years consolidated a majority of the regional promotions under one name.
Ric Flair, Bruiser Brody, Ted DiBiase and many others appeared here at one time. The show aired on Saturday nights and Sunday mornings and was one of St. Louis's highest rated programs.
