Gagne caught Big John in the boston crab but Studd kicked out but could not kick out of Gagne's small package after shoulder blocking stud twice down to the mat.

Dick Bruiser (+2 End) Defeated King Jerry Lawler (-20 End) @9:42. In somewhat of a surprise this match was all Dick The Bruiser from start to finish.

Gene Kiniski (-2 End) Defeated Ric Flair (-31 End) @ 18:16. This was somewhat of another surprise to the fans as Gene Kiniski outwrestled Ric Flair Thoughout the match. Kiniski Continued to throw Flair outside the ring time after time but would make it back just in time before Fuller's ten count. In the small numbers of moves Ric Flair applied during the match-(Only 5) he did manage to catch Kiniski in a quick pin but Kiniski was able to kick out. At one point during the match Kiniski applied 10 straight moves before Flair would get another. Kiniski would put an end to the match when he hoisted Flair up over his shoulders and into the backbreaker for the submission win.

Pat O'Connor (+1 End) Defeated Bob Backlund (-5 End) @5:31. The Veteran Pat O'Connor wasted little time in getting the duke against the all american boy Bob Backlund.

Dusty Rhodes (-3 End) Defeated The Crusher (-9 End) @11:15. This match was almost over in the first 2 mins when Crusher DDT'ed Dusty Rhodes & covered him for the pin but Rhodes somehow managed to kick out at the two count. With the large crowd behind him the American dream managed to make an incredible comeback by rolling the next 10 moves before Crusher's next one. Rhodes took the action outside the ring & punished Crusher from one side of the ring to the other but both made it back inside before referee Connie Marker's 10 count. Rhodes continued the assualt on the Crusher finally catching him in a quick roll up pin but Crusher used his savvy to kick out.

In the battle of the high flyers, Antonino Rocca (-4) Defeated Mil Mascaras (-22) @15:48. Both these fan favorites had the fans up on their feet thoughout the entire match.

Both of these all time greats shook hands at matches end to a huge applause from the fans. Mil's sub rating was 1-6 he rolled a 6.

In the nights third bout, Abdullah The Butcher (+1) Defeated Superstar Billy Graham (-5) @5:03.

Abdullah the Butcher Being lead To The Ring By Security To Do Battle With Superstar Billy Graham

Bruiser Brody (-7) Defeated Jack Brisco (-30) @16:47. In somewhat of a surprise Brody dominated the majority of this match from the onset. Brody was close to being DQ'ed by referee Connie Marker, but managed to control himself enough not to get the 3rd DQ Point. Brody was the more powerful wrestler and put to rest any notions Brisco may have had of advancing to the next round when he almost piledrove Brisco though the ring. Referee Marker could have counted to one hundred. Brisco left on a stretcher but to a nice applause.

Nick Bockwinkel (-5) Defeated The Wildman The Sheik (-4) @8:52. Not much to say here as expected the Sheik got himself Disqualifed when after numerous warnings from referee Marker, the Sheik went one step to far when he blatantly punched Bockwinkel in the groin.

World Heavyweight Championship Tournament
Referee:Dick Wohrle

1st Round Action Continues With The Last Five Matches Of 1st Round Action

Bobo Brazil (-23) Defeated Bruno Sammartino (-39) @27:06. The fans of New Jersey were treated to a matchup between two of wrestling's biggest stars when the black bomber from Benton Harbor Michigan, Big Bobo Brazil took on the living legend Bruno Sammartino in the first match of the evening. Bruno came out of the gate fast in this one rolling the first 7 moves before Brazil would get his first and had Brazil's END Down quick at -5 within the first 3 minutes of the match. Around the 15 minute mark Bruno Straped on the boston crab but Brazil was able to reach the ropes as Referee Dick Wohrle separated the two. 20 minutes into the match Bruno whipped Brazil into the ropes but Bobo flew outside the ring laying dazed on the floor. Bruno went outside to offer a hand to Brazil but for some reason Brazil wanted nothing to do with it and kicked Bruno down to the floor. As Bruno layed there stunned by Brazil's actions, Bobo jumped back into the ring and Bruno followed. Brazil would roll the next 8 moves including three vicious piledrivers. Bruno kicked out of the first pin attempt but was not able two kick out of the second.

Billy Robinson (-12) Defeated the Russian bear Ivan Koloff (-24) @20:14. For the first 15 minutes this match was dead even & the fans were getting a real good wrestling match between the two. But that didn't last long as the Russian bear showed why is is one of the most hated men in wrestling. Koloff threw Robinson outside the ring and smashed him with a chair across the back. Koloff jumped back into the ring as referee Wohrle started his count. Robinson made in back just in the nick of time. Robinson weakened by the chair blow was easy prey as Koloff applied the boston crab but Robinson was able to wiggle out of the hold. Things started to turn in Robinson's favor as he applied the next 3 holds including a double arm suplex, a piledriver and finally the boston crab for the win.

In the night's third match, the Destroyer (-20) Defeated Terry Funk (-25) @21:16. The fans of New Jersey had a hard time deciding which wrestler they wanted to see win more as both are so hated in the world of wrestling. But from the fans reaction it seemed like they were leaning more towards the Destroyer. And the fans got their wish as after a grueling 20 minutes the Destroyer put Funk away with his Torture Rack Slam.

Big Ox Baker (+4) Defeated Fritz Von Erich (-23) @8:02. Big Ox showed no mercy punishing Von Erich from start to finish in this matchup as Baker hit Von Erich not once with the heart punch but twice. Fritz's son Kerry who was scheduled to wrestler the final match ran to ringside to stop the beating his dad was receiving but it was to late as Baker's hand was already raised in victory. Kerry had to help his dad back to the dressing room. Looks like we may have the first sign of bad blood between these two wrestlers down the road.

Big Ox Baker Showed The Wrestling World Why He Is Going To Be Someone To Be Reckoned With In This Tournament

In the night's Final match, Sailor Art Thomas (-9) Defeated Kerry Von Erich (-13) @14:38. These two fan favorite's put on a nice display of wrestling for the east Rutherford fans. In what should have been even a better matchup than it was, it appeared that Kerry was still somewhat distracted by what had occurred in the previous matchup in which his dad Fritz was destroyed by Ox Baker. Seeing this as an opening, Thomas was able to strap the sleeper hold on Kerry. Kerry really did not put up much of a fight to escape the hold and went down to defeat. Before leaving the ring Thomas woke Kerry up and shook his hand. Both left to a thunderous applause.

World Heavyweight Championship Tournament
Referee:Dick Wohrle

The Start Of 2nd Round Action

Andre The Giant (-2) Defeated Billy Robinson (-2) @7:47. Andre The Giant made relatively short work of Billy Robinson to continue on in the tournament. Andre almost ended the match in the first 2 minutes when he surprised Robinson with a quick pin roll up but Robinson was able to get his leg drapped across the ropes as Referee Dick Wohrle broke the two up. Robinson was not as lucky 5 minutes later when Andre whipped Robinson into the ropes and came off right into the giant's big boot. From there Andre bounced off the ropes onto Robinson with the sitting splash for the win.

Pat O'Connor (-4) Defeated Bruiser Brody (-27) @13:48. The Veteran O'Connor clearly outwrestled the bigger Brody thoughout the match and that seemed to frustrate Brody enough that Brody was one DQ Point away from being disqualified by Referee Wohrle. Brody recovered nicely and bounced back setting O'Connor up for the DDT but O'Connor was somehow able to kick out from Brody's pinning attempt. The end came for Brody when he got into some sort of disagreement with Referee Wohrle as O'Connor snuck up behind Brody & cradled him for the win.

In the night's third match, Dick The Bruiser (-7) Defeated Abdullah The Butcher (-9) @11:18. This was a matchup of two of the wildest wrestlers in the TSW Federation. From the crowd's reaction it was evident that the fans wanted to see both wrestlers kill each other as neither are fan favorites. Bruiser somehow got the huge frame of Abdullah half way up into the piledriver & almost put him though the mat for the win.

In the final bout of the evening,Handsome Harley Race (+3) Defeated Big Ox Baker (-11) @9:39. Ox Baker only controlled this match for a very short time rolling a total of only 6 moves the entire 9 minutes. Race on the other hand must have felt that keeping Baker outside the ring was to his advantage. It must have worked because Baker seemed to run out of gas early & that gave Race just the opening him would need catching Baker from behind with the quick roll up pin for the victory.

Handsome Harley Race Has Looked Very Tough So Far In The Tournament Eliminating Big Ox Baker On Tonight's Card

Later in the match Bockwinkel did Catch The Destroyer in the Sleeper hold but he managed to reach the ropes as Referee Dick Wohrle broke the two apart. But tonight was not to be Bockwinkel's night as the Destroyer hit Nick three times with his Torture Rack Slam that spelled doom for Bockwinkel.

In a matchup of two legends of the squared circle, Bobo Brazil (-13) Defeated Antonino Rocca (-27) @20:33. This was a matchup that really did not suit Bobo well as he had trouble with the high flying Rocca. Around the 15 min mark, things started to turn in Bobo's favor after Rocca tried a high ariel move but Bobo moved at the last minute causing Rocca to hit the canvas hard. Seeing that Rocca was hurting Bobo strapped on the Boston Crab But Rocca was not ready to submit. It was not until Bobo Piledrove Rocca Hard into the mat that Bobo was able to call it a victory. Referee Worhle Counted 1-2-3.

Verne Gagne (-17) Defeated Hulk Hogan (-41) @22:39. Gagne almost ended this match before it began when he caught Hogan with a Quick Roll up pin but Hogan kicked out easily. Gagne did not let up as he applied Two Suplex and a Sleeper but again Hogan was not ready to quit. Hogan got his bearings back and delivered a thunderous Thunder Slam to Gagne but Gagne Used his Savvy move to kick out. It was not until late in the match where it appeared that Hogan was slowing down that Gagne caught Hogan with a second Sleeper that Gagne hand his hand raised in victory.

Verne Gagne Being The Veteran That He Is Was Able To Overcome a Vicious Slam By Hulk Hogan And Come Back To Eliminate Hogan To Advance In The Tournament

In the final bout of the evening, Sailor Art Thomas (-15) & The American Dream Dusty Rhodes (0) were both counted out by Referee Dick Wohrle thus both being eliminated in the tournament. During the match both wrestlers fall outside to the floor. As both wrestlers glared at each other and seemed to blame each other for something, both came to blows as Referee Wohrle started his count. Both Thomas & Rhodes were so involved with each other they did not hear or could case less about the count as both were counted out.

Harley may have been looking for revenge on Kiniski for costing him the NWA World Heavyweight Championship at Starcade 83! Last night, I watched the Flair v Race match from that event. Kiniski was the special referee. It was a no DQ steel cage match. Yet, Kiniski repeatedly was breaking up choke holds and uses of the ropes. He literally would pull and push Race off of Flair. It is NO DQ!! C'mon, Gene!

What sets are The Destroyer and Pat O'Connor in? I must have them but I don't recall them.

Keep up the good work!

Hi Derek, Wow nice match. Both O'Connor & Destroyer are from the All-Time WWA (Best of the Indianapolis Card Set)

Post subject:
Cool, I have that set and will check those guys out. Rocca is another guy I have considered adding. I just received Expansion Set 2 as well as a couple of the 2006 sets. I emailed them and I am sure they will fix the problem, but did you notice that the finishing moves of 10 of the guys in Set 2 are the same as 10 other guys? Maybe they print to order and it was just a blip for me, but the Iron Sheik has the same finishers with the same points/modifiers as Dick the Bruiser, Iron Mike Sharpe the same as Nikita Koloff (Russian Sickle for Sharpe?!?!), and the same thing for 8 others. Wait, maybe these are error cards that I can sell on E-bay at exorbitant rates! Yes, I see now, I have been looking at this in the wrong way...

Hi Derek, to be honest with you I don't have the expansion sets. Not really into the newer wrestlers at all. Hey you might have something rare in those misprints. You never know everything nowadays is collectible lol

Thanks, Alan! I get you re: new wrestlers. There are usually some older wrestlers included in each set. In Set 2, Lou Thesz and Mil Mascaras are included, as well as different versions of Verne Gagne and Nick Bockwinkel (as opposed to the Minneapolis/All time AWA versions).

Harley is an ornery SOB so it is anybody's guess what he was thinking when he attacked Kiniski. As for all the DQs, Robinson is a stickler who needs to recognize this is big time professional wrestling where just about anything goes.

TSW 11
Olympic Auditorium, Los Angeles Calf
Referee:Jack Pesek

Johnny Rich & Charlie Fulton Both Making Their Debut Here Tonite & Looking To Make Good Impressions Did Not Disappoint In The Opening Bout. Charlie Fulton Was Well In Control Of The Match & Looked Like He Was Well On His Way To Victory. But Rich Had Other Ideas. Rich Rolled 6 Straight 2 Point Moves To Snatch Away The Win. Rich Completed The Comeback With His Flying Elbow. Time Of The Match 10:37.

The Night's Second Match Also Saw a Wrestler Making His Debut When Chick Donovan Took On The Russian Bear Ivan Koloff. Koloff Dominated This Match & Could Have Ended The Match alot Earlier Than He Did But Felt The Need To Punish Donovan. Koloff Finally Did Put An End To It @7:47 With The 2nd Rope Knee Drop. Total Match Moves Koloff 13- Donovan 2.

The Third & Final Wrestler Making His Debut Tonite Was Mike Jackson Who Was Taken On Superstar Billy Graham. Jackson Started Off Strong Even Before The Bell Rang When He Blocked a Pre Match Sneak Attack By Graham (+3 END To Jackson) But Unfortunately For Jackson That Would Not Help Him As Graham Like Koloff In The Prior Match Would Dominate & Catch Jackson In The Beahug @9:17. Total Match Moves Graham-15 Jackson 3.

The Destroyer Defeated Mil Mascaras @10:25 In Match Event- Fritz Von Erich Attacked Mascaras OOR While Destroyer Distracted Referee Pesek. Von Erich Rolls Mascaras Back In The Ring (-4 END & Pin Attempt On Mascaras). But Mil Was Able To Kick Out Of The Pinning Attempt.

Bruno Sammartino Defeated Terry Funk. Pre Match Event-Both Wrestlers Continue To Jaw At Each Other & Refuse To Start The Match So The Commissioner Steps In & Declares That This Match Be The First In The Best Of 7 With The Loser Having To Leave Tri-State Wrestling For 6 Months. Bruno Would Go Up 1-0 When Funk Submitted To Bruno's Backbreaker @11:07. Funk Sub Rating 1-6 Rolled 6.

Bob Backlund & Pedro Morales Took On Fritz & Kerry Von Erich In Another Match In The Tag Team Elimination Tournament. When The Dust Cleared Both Teams Would Be Eliminated From Competition When Referee Pesek Ruled The Match a Double Count-Out As All Four Wrestlers Battled OOR & Completely Lost Track Of Pesek's Count. This Seemed Completely Out Of Character For These Two Face Teams.

The Main Event Of The Evening Saw Jerry Lawler Take On Ric Flair As The TV Title Elimination Tournament Continued. This Would Be The First Time In Tri-State Wrestling That Two Wrestlers Have Meet Each Other a Second Time. Lawler Beat Flair On TSW 8. Flair Who Has Yet To Win a Match Got Off Quick & Would Apply The First 6 Moves Before Lawler Got His First. But Like Flair's Previous 3 Matches This Would End The Same Way With Him Going Down To Defeat When Lawler Would Made a Huge Comeback To Get The Duke Over Flair With The 2nd Rope Fist Drop @17:14 To Advance In The Tournament.

I like that Stooges routine with Brisco, Studd and Hayes!!!

Do you have the bad Ric Flair card where he is a 0 control? The Original Game Tribute set has great cards for him and others. Too good in some cases (Flair is a +2 Control, I lowered everyone who was +2 to +1 but gave them a FIN/CO point, something from TV Pro 2).

Sammartino's card isn't as good as it should be but he will be in a future set and is awesome (I got a few preview cards and he was one of them). Funk deserves an upgrade too.

Hope you are enjoying, Alan!

Derek, Yes the flair card is the one with the 0 control. you know I see a lot of wrestlers that should be upgraded. Actually all the wrestlers should be upgraded. Its to bad we cant get upgraded sets with all the wrestlers that have been released so far than the cards would be more true to what the wrestlers really are. I Have thought about changing some grades on some of the wrestlers but I would not even know where to begin plus I don't want to screw with the games mechanism.
