Lex Luger v Harley Race: after Race won his match against the Crusher on MD 237 Luger attacked and pummeled him. Here, Luger started strong, with a pair of submission moves, a Bear Hug and STF. Handsome Harley had a sweet three move sequence of 2nd Rope Knee Drop, Belly-to-Belly Suplex and Superplex to even the bout at -3 END at the 7:30 mark. Luger controlled the rest of the way, earning 5 pin/sub attempt to 1 for Race, and Lex got the submission w/ the Torture Rack at 14 min 54 secs. Luger breaks a 4 match losing streak.

Pistol Pez Whatley v Arn Anderson: Ray Stevens and Nick Bockwinkel pounced on Whatley backstage but Dick Paddlewheel made the save A tag team match is now scheduled for MD 245.

Double count-out! 2 min 6 secs

The Crusher v King Kong Bundy: Crusher got in a Running Clothesline and Kick to Knee Cap but Bundy exhausted him early w/ a Clothesline, Running Knee Lift Whip into Turnbuckle and Atlantic City Avalanche. A Sidewalk Slam for KKB earned a quick-count pin (pin 1-9, rolled 9) from the notorious heel referee, Patrick. 7 min 34 secs

Rick Rude v Jimmy Snuka: a battle of top 10 wrestlers. Superfly had pin attempts w/ a Quick Pin Move and Diving Headbutt Drop and Rude after a Flying Body Press and Rude Piledriver. At 10 mins the match was tied at -5 END. Raving Rick softened Snuka up w/ a Figure 4 before hitting the Stump-Pulling Piledriver and covering. Snuka was exhausted, Patrick made the count, 1-2-3, Rude wins! 11 min 19 secs

Magnum TA & Sting v The Outsiders: the heels make their debut after storming the ring on MD 235 and flattening everyone, including MTA and Sting. Magnum got off to a quick start w/ a Diving Knee Drop and Fireman's Carry. Kevin Nash nailed Multiple Knee Lifts on Sting outside the ring while Scott Hall distracted Patrick. The Outsiders teamed for a Backbreaker Hold and Diving Elbow Drop combo but MTA avoided the pin. Minutes later the Outsiders hit the same move again and covered.

WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP: Champion Argentina Rocca w/ manager Bobby Heenan (who is now a face, remember) v Randy Savage: thing weren't looking good for the Macho Man early. Rocca performed a Flying Headscissor Takedown and a little later a 2nd Rope Splash. He covered and looked like he had it but Savage kicked out at the very last second (pin 1, rolled 2). Rocca then hit 3 consecutive single pt moves before executing a Tiger Suplex. He covered again, and again Savage kicked out at the last second (pin 1, rolled 2). Rocca had to wonder if Patrick was slow-counting him. At the 7 min mark Rocca led in END +6 to -4. The Macho Man tried to rally w/ a Gutwrench Suplex but Rocca responded w/ a Boston Crab. Randy tired Argentina w/ a Macho High Knee and Running Clothesline. Savage went to the top rope and nailed a Diving Elbow Drop. Rocca kicked out. REPEAT-top rope, Diving Elbow Drop, kick out!

Match Day 241
Hara Arena
Dayton, OH
Referee = Tommy Gilbert

Dick the Bruiser v The Destroyer: pre-match, the Destroyer grabbed the microphone from the ring announcer but botched his rant (-1 heat). The Destroyer performed the opening 3 moves, including a Flying Body Press, before his friend, Big John Studd, entered the ring and battered Bruiser. Gilbert saw the attack and called for the bell, disqualifying the Destroyer. 2 min 3 secs

Lou Thesz v Mad Dog Vachon: Thesz leads 1-0 in the Commissioner-declared loser leaves town best of 7 series. This match went on and on despite Thesz getting all 7 of the pin/sub attempts in the match. The highlight was MDV setting up for a Piledriver but Thesz reversed and nailed the move himself. Shortly after, Thesz caught Vachon in a Headlock then covered for the pinfall. 16 min 34 secs

The Road Warriors w/ manager Paul Ellering v The Russians: the Soviet Union’s finest offered pre-match handshakes then Kicked Hawk and Animal in the Ribs when the Warriors extended their arms. Hawk and Animal teamed for a Backbreaker/Flying Forearm Combo when the bell rang. But Ivan Koloff caught Hawk in a Sleeper Hold early, and to everyone’s astonishment Hawk submitted (sub 1-4, rolled 3). Post-match, the Russians asserted a right to challenge for the World Tag Team Championship. Commissioner Buttons came out and agreed! The Russians will face the Minnesota Wrecking Crew for the belts on MD 244. 3 min 6 secs

Pat O’Connor w/ ally Dick the Bruiser v Big John Studd: the crowd got a big kick when Studd’s entrance music was replaced w/ the Munchkin’s Theme. O’Connor tired Studd early w/ a pair of Leg Scissors and a Running Clothesline. A Samoan Drop and Big Boot got Studd into the match. O’Connor exhausted BJS and earned the match’s first pin attempt after a Spinning Arm Lock and Shortarm Scissors. But a pair of Heart Punches by Studd exhausted O’Connor and resulted in a 3-count for the pin. 8 min 30 secs

Dick Paddlewheel v Bret Hart w/ manager Jimmy Hart: the Mouth of the South says that he knows who Dick Paddlewheel “really” is and will expose him when the time is right. This commentator take Paddlewheel at his word and believe he is in fact – Dick Paddlewheel. The masked Paddlewheel was in control here after a pair of Knife-Edge Chops, a Seated Armbar and a Diving Headbutt Drop. The action went outside the ring where Paddlewheel Body Slammed the Hitman onto the hard concrete. Jimmy Hart then bashed Paddlewheel w/ his Megaphone. The referee made the count, neither wrestler could make it back to his fee, and a double count-out was declared. 6 min 5 secs

NO DISQUALIFICATION MATCH – winner gets a United States Championship match – Terry Funk v Greg Valentine w/ manager Jimmy Hart: the Hammer came out hot, hitting a pair of Vertical Suplexes. Jimmy distracted Funk w/ a Fireball, which allowed Valentine to clamp on the Figure 4 (savvy). Funk when for this finisher but Valentine countered w/ a DDT. Valentine clearly felt confident and he pulled out a table from under the ring and angled it in the corner of the ring. He then used a Steel Chair and repeatedly bashed it against Funk’s back. Valentine had to sense how close he was. Funk then hit a Spinning Toe Hold and followed it up w/ a Brainbuster. He picked Valentine up and Slammed him through the table Valentine had set up and covered! Gilbert counted, 1-2-3, and Funk is your winner. 9 min 10 secs

Match Day 242
Pine Knob Music Theatre
Clarkston, MI
Referee = Dick Wohrle

Kerry Von Erich v Jeff Jarrett: Von Erich performed the opening 8 moves of the match, including a Full Nelson, Discus Punch, 2nd Rope Knee Drop and Iron Claw. Double J was exhausted but still had his wits about him. Wohrle got bumped and incapacitated and Jarrett took advantage by applying a series of illegal holds on Von Erich, including a Figure 4 while using the ropes for leverage (-10 END). But it wasn't enough and a Von Erich Body Slam after the ref came to allowed the Modern Day Warrior to get the pin. 5 min 15 secs

The Masked Superstar v Austin Idol: Jerry Lawler interrupted the Superstar's pre-match interview, promoting his upcoming bout w/ Jimmy Valiant. The Masked Superstar got the early victory w/ a Quick Roll Up in only 58 secs. Idol's record is now 4 wins 10 losses and 2 draws.

Magnum TA v Ray Stevens: the Crippler interfered in MTA's match w/ Nick Bockwinkel on MD 238 (MTA ended up being disqualified). Magnum had an early Quick Roll Up and Stevens a pin attempt after a DDT. MTA took control at the 5 min mark, coming close to a pinfall after a TA Bulldog. A Running Knee Smash, Belly-to-Belly Suplex and a 2nd TA Bulldog, all in succession, exhausted Stevens and allowed Magnum to get the 3-count. 7 min 17 secs

The Kangaroos v The Iron Sheik & Nikolai Volkoff w/ ally Stan Hansen: the Steiners started some trouble w/ the 'Roos backstage, with some pushing and shoving, and the Commissioner intervened and scheduled a bout for MD 251 (you clowns aren't getting on the MD 250 card!). Volkoff Sprayed Cologne in Don Kent's eyes, and ringside fans could hear Hansen complaining of the "outback stink coming from those felons." Kent hit a Backbreaker and when Al Costello tagged in he applied a Rear Chinlock and connected w/ a Knee Lift. The Iron Sheik tagged in and turned the tide w/ an Eye Gouge, Belly-to-Belly Suplex and Double Hip Toss. Another doubleteam move, this time a Dropkick & Bear Hug, earned a DQ pt for the heels. Hansen then tossed his Bullwhip into the ring and the Iron Sheik lashed Costello while Volkoff distracted Wohrle. Wohrle turned around to find the Iron Sheik making the cover, 1-2-3, Sheik & Volkoff win to the delight of few if any! 7 min 14 secs

Tommy Rich v Ric Flair: as if an ironman like the Nature Boy needed any help, Arn Anderson & Steven Regal got into the ring and intimidated Wohrle pre-match (increase Flair's END by 5 pts). Flair hit an Elbow Drop and Stalling Suplex but Wildfire got his licks in when he found Flair's hidden Nightstick and used it (-8 END). Rich followed it up w/ a Closed Fist to head, which resulted in some blood from Flair's forehead. The match was pretty even when Flair was sent to the ropes, Rich telegraphed a Back Body Drop and Flair surprised him w/ a Sunset Flip. 1-2-3, Flair wins! 6 min 46 secs

Commissioner Buttons came to the ring to promote the Freeway to Match Day 250. First off, Dusty Rhodes and Nick Bockwinkel will collide on MD 243, with the winner facing the Macho Man Randy Savage for the World Heavyweight Championship on MD 247. The winner on MD 247 will go on to headline Match Day 250. His opponent there will be the winner of an 8-man tournament rewarding the veterans who have earned the most ratings points in the Retro Wrestling Federation (excluding Dusty, Nick and Randy). The tournament will commence with 4 matches on MD 247, the semifinals will take place on MD 248 and the final on MD 249. Buttons said the matches had been made, but would not reveal who would face whom. He did announce the participants though - Hulk Hogan, Antonio Inoki, Magnum TA, Dick the Bruiser, Jerry Lawler, Andre the Giant, Ric Flair and Jimmy Snuka! WOW!

Hacksaw Duggan v Andre the Giant: 2 former world champions collide. Duggan took the belt from Andre on MD 184. Rick Martel anticlimactically grabbed the microphone pre-match and taunted his upcoming opponent, Carlos Colon. The match went back and forth early, with each man at +2 END after 5 mins. That quickly changed when Andre applied a Bear Hug and nailed successive Sitting Splashes. The exhausted Hacksaw was out of gas and succumbed to the cover. 6 min 42 secs

Match Day 243
Coliseum, Southern Illinois University
Carbondale, IL
Referee = Jack Pesek

Rick Martel v Carlos Colon: Martel talked some trash the previous MD. Colon put him in his place here, dominating the match. Colon hit an Elbow Drop to Leg and Cartwheel Elbow Smash early, then tired Martel outside the ring w/ a Belly-to-Back Suplex onto the concrete and a Slam into the Ring Steps. Back inside, Colon had a pin attempt after a Jumping Headbutt and used the ropes for leverage, but Martel kicked out. A Figure 4 Leglock put this one to bed and forced a submission out of Martel. 13 min 56 secs

Jimmy Valiant v Jerry Lawler: the first match for the Boogie Woogie Man after being out of commission w/ an injury. The bell rang and Lawler grabbed a Trash Can Lid and repeatedly and blatantly bashed Valiant with it. The King was disqualified and Dr. Brenda Buttons ruled Valiant out of action for another 3 weeks. A clearly woozy Boogie Woogie Man vowed revenge, and a Streetfight was scheduled for MD 253. 28 secs

Austin Idol & World Heavyweight Champion Randy Savage v The Outsiders: Idol and Savage as well as their opponents were flattened by the interfering Outsiders on MD 235. The Macho Man took a beating in the opening minutes here as Kevin Nash performed a Body Slam and Sidewalk Slam, Scott Hall hit an Electric Chair Drop and they had a pair of double-team moves including a Powerbomb and Diving Elbow Drop. Idol tagged in and he and Savage teamed for a Macho High Knee & Body Slam, and he showed his strength w/ a nice Press Slam. But the Outsiders regained control, Nash used a Steel Pipe (his new preferred foreign object) and hit a Powerslam. Savage returned and while the legal Nash distracted Pesek, Hall battered Savage. I don't know whether it was Idol, the crowd or Pesek's natural refereeing instinct, but he turned around and saw what Hall was doing. He immediately called for the bell and disqualified the Outsiders. They had this match in the bag so it must just be a legacy of brutality they are aiming for right now. 11 min 39 secs

Antonio Inoki v The Sheik: on MD 239 the Sheik was predictably disqualified after hitting both Inoki AND the ref w/ a Chair. This match STOLE THE SHOW. A pre-match scuffle when the Sheik interrupted Inoki's promo set the tone. Inoki tired the Sheik early w// a Cross Armbreaker and Fall-Away Slam. The Sheik went to his usual bag of tricks, performing an Eye Gouge and Throwing a Fireball. The Sheik surprised Inoki w/ DDT and covered, Pesek counted 1-2- and Inoki got his foot on the ropes at the very last second (pin 1-2, rolled 1 but 6 6-sided). The close call seemed to wake Inoki up as he had 5 pin attempts before the Sheik had another. Inoki hit 3 Fall-Away Slams as well as a Gutwrench Suplex and Big Slap. But the Sheik would not go quietly away. Larry Zbyszko, the Sheik's tag team partner, appeared ringside and beat up Inoki outside the ring while the Sheik distracted [the admittedly easily distractable] Pesek. Zbyszko rolled Inoki into the ring and the Sheik covered but Inoki kicked out. Bare-Knuckled Punches by Inoki provided him w/ another pin opportunity but the Sheik got his foot on the ropes at the last second (pin 1-11, rolled 8 but 6 6-sided). The Sheik then went on a run that only he can go on, Choking Inoki w/ the Tag Rope, Throwing a Fireball, Throwing Salt in Inoki's Face and again Choking Inoki w/ the Tag Rope. Inoki hit a Flying Body Press but the Sheik again somehow kicked out (this was the 5th pin attempt for Inoki where the pin was 1-10 or better). The Sheik then applied a painful Armpit Claw in the center of the ring and try as he might, Inoki was forced to submit! ENDs at the end were the Sheik -35 and Inoki -21. The Sheik ended a 7-match losing streak. WOW, what a bout, and the crowd agreed by giving both men a standing ovation. 16 min 55 secs

Dusty Rhodes v Nick Bockwinkel - winner gets a World Heavyweight Championship match against the Champion Randy Savage on MD 247: Bockwinkel earned an early pin attempt after a Piledriver before Dusty went on a 7-move run that included a High Knee & Elbow Smash, Bionic Elbow and Dusty Atomic Drop. Bockwinkel surprised Rhodes w/ a DDT and, though it went against how the match was going, got the 3-count and victory. Bockwinkel, a three-time former champ, gets a title shot. 6 min 9 secs

UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP: Champion Bruno Sammartino w/ valet/fiancee Precious v Terry Funk: the crowd was ready for this, as were the wrestlers (+1 heat, +2 END each). Early highlight was the challenger setting up a Brainbuster outside the ring but Sammartino reversed and nailed the move himself. Some Bruno Punches, a Shoulder Block and a bunch of single pt moves had Sammartino up in END +7 to -5 at the 7:30 mark. Suplex City was founded as Funk hit a Stalling Suplex, Bruno a Belly-to-Back Suplex and Funk a Fisherman Suplex. Another set of Bruno Punches provided Bruno w/ the 2nd pin attempt of the match. Funk then rallied, beginning w/ a Headlock Takedown, continuing w/ a pair of 2nd Rope Elbow Smashes, and culminating w/ a Stunner and DDT. The exhausted Sammartino kicked out of Funk's attempted pin (his first). A Bellly-to-Belly Suplex gave Funk another opportunity to reclaim the belt but the champion again kicked out. Funk hit a Stalling Suplex and covered anew. Pesek counted, 1-2-3 (pin 1-4, rolled 3) and Terry Funk is now a two-time United States Champion! What a comeback! 18 mins

Commissioner Buttons then came out, which the crowd absolutely loved. Buttons announced that Funk and Sammartino would meet again on MD 250 but this would be the last chance for each of them re: the US Championship - the loser on MD 250 would not get another opportunity!

Match Day 244
Activity Center, University of Colorado
Boulder, CO
Referee = Larry Lisowski

Sting v Superstar Billy Graham w/ manager Adnan Al Kaissey: Rick Rude surprised Sting w/ the Rude Awakening on the ramp. Sting couldn’t make it to the ring and was counted out.

Pez Whatley v Arn Anderson: these two had a double count-out on MD 240. Here, Pistol Pez Slammed the Enforcer through a Table outside the ring. Arn then pulled out a Painting from under the ring – oh my God, Anderson hit Whatley with Whistler’s Mother! Whatley rallied w/a sweet sequence of Rear Chinlock, Fling Forearm, Big Headbutt and the Flying Willie. Whatley covered but the exhausted Anderson was able to kick out. Minutes later a second Flying Willie allowed Pez to get the pinfall. In their neophyte RWF careers, Arn falls to 1-5-1 and Pez moves to 3-2-1. 9 min 9 secs

Ed Lewis v Kurt Angle: both pin/sub attempts in this one came at the end. Angle performed a Release German Suplex and Belly-to-Belly Suplex. The Strangler applied a Neck Visegrip, Body Slammed Angle on the concrete, and nailed a Stranger Clothesline. At the 10 min mark Lewis landed a second Strangler Clothesline and covered the exhausted Angle, who managed to kick out. A Stranglehold follow-up forced Angle to submit. 10 min 36 secs

WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP: Champions The Minnesota Wrecking Crew w/ manager Johnny Valiant v The Russians: this hard-hitting affair was excellent. Lars Anderson almost ended this one early w/ a DDT but Nikita Koloff kicked out of the pin attempt at the very last second (pin 1-5, rolled 6). Nikita grabbed ahold of Lars but the latter reversed and applied a Bear Hug, which Nikita broke out of. After Ivan Koloff and Ole Anderson tagged in, Valiant got involved, distracting Ivan while Ole made a Quick Roll-Up (savvy). But it wasn’t all MWC as Ivan got in a Shoulder Smash and Nikita a Power Slam and Jaw Clutch. Ivan distracted Lisowski, which allowed his nephew to Whack Ole w/ a Chain. The Russians enjoyed it so much they did it again 2 mins later. Ivan then performed a Body Slam on Ropes and Inverted Backbreaker. Ole was able to make the tag and Lars came in hot, hitting 8 straight moves and exhausting Ivan. Nikita returned hot and hit in order a Body Slam, Knee Lift and double-team Power Slam combo. A minute later a Russian Sickle gave the challengers their first pin attempt (savvy). Ivan tagged in, executed a Piledriver and covered, but Lars kicked out. Ole tagged in and applied a Bear Hug but Ivan escaped. Ole followed up w/ an Exploder Suplex and covered. Nikita was met by Lars and couldn’t break it up, Lisowski counted 1-2-3, and the Minnesota Wrecking Crew retain the belts! 22 min 50 secs

Lex Luger v Jimmy Snuka: Lex had the advantage early after a Running Clothesline and Luger Suplex. Luger’s friend, the Crusher, came to ringside and called Luger over. Crusher then pulled out a Slapjack and KOed Luger. Snuka covered for the easy pinfall. Crusher turned heel!!! 5 min 40 secs

Hulk Hogan v Andre the Giant: before Hogan’s match w/ Superstar Billy Graham on MD 239, Andre Body Slammed the Hulkster on the ramp, leading to a count out (Superstar has been getting some easy wins lately!). A new wrestler appeared pre-match and attacked Hogan (-6 END). His name – Frank Gotch, a true legend! Andre earned early pin attempts w/ a Body Slam and Sitting Splash. Hogan was exhausted by the 6:30 mark and Andre tired at 7 mins. A Kick to Face sent Hulk flying through the ropes. It seemed like he was out but he was able to stumble back into the ring at the count of 9. From there on out Andre dominated, performing another Kick to Face, a Piledriver, a Butt Smash in Corner and a Choke. A 2nd Piledriver allowed Andre to get the pin. Hogan has lost 6 of his last 7 bouts – not the way to into the tournament for the title shot on MD 250! 14 min 6 secs

Match Day 245
Glen Helen Regional Park
Devore, CA
Referee = Tom "Rocky" Stone

Pez Whatley & Dick Paddlewheel v Nick Bockwinkel & Ray Stevens: this match had its genesis on MD 240 when the heels jumped Whatley backstage. Pistol Pez began the match, and never left the ring. Stevens hit a DDT and Atomic Drop early, then teamed w/ Bockwinkel for a Double Piledriver. Whatley was exhausted, Paddlewheel was met by Bockwinkel, and Stevens got the 3-count from Rocky. 4 min 6 secs

Ivan Putski v Steve Regal: Polish Power has failed to rise to victory in his last 6 matches, and Regal has lost 4 straight. Regal had the edge early after a Whip into Corner. Putski then ran off 7 of the next 8 moves, including a Polish Power Slam and a pair of Vertical Suplexes. Mr. Electricity created a buzz w/ a Running Clothesline and Frankensteiner. Putski applied a Bear Hug but Regal escaped. Regal then hit a Missile Dropkick and followed up w/ a Tiger Suplex and covered. 1-2-3, quick-count (pin 1-6, rolled 6), Regal wins! ENDs were Regal -10 and Putski -5. 9 min 2 secs

Pat O'Connor w/ manager Dick the Bruiser v King Kong Bundy: the behemoth tried a sneak attack as O'Connor entered the ropes but Pat was ready and flipped Bundy onto the concrete (-3 END). Bundy seemed to use that as motivation, hitting a 2nd Rope Elbow Drop, Clothesline and Running Clothesline tiring O'Connor. The action went outside and O'Connor got out of the way of a Bundy charge, and KKB ran shoulder first into the steel ring post. O'Connor followed up by throwing Bundy over a Guard Rail then Hit Bundy w/ a Chair. Back in the ring, O'Connor executed a Piledriver and Leg Scissors, exhausted the big man. Bundy turned the match around w/ an Atlantic City Avalanche then earned another pin attempt after a Clothesline. Short-Arm Scissors gave O'Connor another chance but Bundy kicked out of the pin attempt. A 2nd Atlantic City Avalanche laid O'Connor out in the middle of the ring. Bundy covered, 1-2-3, big win! ENDs were O'Connor -20 and Bundy -22. 14 min 51 secs

The Brisco Brothers v The Sheik & Larry Zbyszko w/ manager Paul Dangerously: this was a battle of former tag team champions. The Sheik was too busy jawing w/ the crowd to notice the bell. The Briscos applied a Double Figure 4 and the Sheik submitted in a Retro Wrestling Federation record 7 secs!

Argentina Rocca v Rick Rude: these guys came at each other w/ their best moves. Ravishing Rick was strong early w/ a Gutwrench Suplex and Diving Kneedrop. Rocca rallied w/ 4 straight moves, including a 2nd Rope Splash, Slingshot Suplex and Top Rope Body Press. Rude executed a Stump Pulling Piledriver. Rocca hit another Top Rope Body Press then wowed the crowd w/ a Moonsault. Rude kicked out of the pin then quickly rolled Rocca up. 1-2-3, pin, Rude wins! 5 min 31 secs

Dick the Bruiser v Big John Studd: on MD 240 Studd interfered in Bruiser's bout, battering him. Bruiser had an early pin chance w/ a Go-Behind Takedown & Roll-Up. Studd had one after a Piledriver. After 7 mins the match was even at -3 END. Dick hit a Turnbuckle Ram and followed it up w/ a 2nd Rope Kneedrop, exhausted BJS. Bruiser covered but Studd used his savvy. Studd then went on a 7 move high impact run, including a pair of Big Suplexes and 3 Studd Bear Hugs. Bruiser kicked out of 3 consecutive pin attempts then escaped 2 Bear Hugs. But he couldn't escape the 3rd, and at 11 min 49 secs Dick the Bruiser submitted. Big John Studd has now won 4 straight matches.

Match Day 246
Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds
Watsonville, CA
Referee = Todd Sinclair

TWO OUT OF THREE FALLS MATCH (Loser disbands/relegated): The High Flyers v King Kong Bundy & Big John Studd: an auspicious start for Jim Brunzell, who slipped and fell as he climbed the ring steps. The 1st pin attempt didn't come until the 11th minute when Bundy performed a Quick Roll-Up on Brunzell, which resulted in a near fall (pin 1-5, rolled 6). 2 minutes later Bundy twisted his ankle, which would affect him the rest of the match (subtract 1 from control rating). Greg Gagne immediately rolled him up in a not-so-Small Package but to no avail. At the 19:30 mark the teams were even at -5 END overall. Gagne kept earning pin attempts, and Bundy was forced to make the save after Double Flying Dropkicks on Studd. The faces teamed for a Monkey Flip & Flying Body Splash and covered. Bundy's ankle prevented him from breaking up the pin, 1-2-3, and in the 28th minute Gagne & Brunzell had the 1st fall. As the 2nd leg began, Bundy Whipped Jumping Jim into the the Turnbuckle then followed up with an Atlantic City Avalanche. 1-2-3, pinfall, heels get 2nd fall. As the 3rd leg began Gagne immediately caught Bundy in an Arm Stretcher. Gagne covered, Studd was slow out of his corner, and Sinclair counted 1-2-3, Flyers win! Studd and Bundy will disband. the heels did not seem particularly enamored w/ one another post-match, but in the immediate aftermath of a tough loss that is to be expected. 29 min 36 secs

The Crusher v Greg Valentine w/ manager Jimmy Hart: a heel v heel confrontation after Crusher turned on his friend Lex Luger on MD 244. Crusher immediately caught the Hammer in a Quick Pin Move and grabbed a fist full of tights for good measure but couldn't get the 3-count. Valentine nailed a Piledriver but Crusher used his savvy. A couple of minutes later Crusher went for the Pin Move w/ Tights anew and this time Sinclair counted 1-2-3. 3 min 58 secs

Kerry Von Erich v Harley Race: the action went outside the ring at the outset. Von Erich looked to whip Race into the Ring Steps but Handsome Harley reversed it, then Body Slammed Von Erich on the Concrete. Back inside Von Erich came close to the pinfall after a Flying Body Press but Race reached the ropes just in time (pin 1-3, rolled 3, but 6 6-sided). Race applied a Sleeper and soon after nailed a Piledriver. Then from out of nowhere appeared Ed Strangler Lewis, a man Von Erich has professed to admire. No more, as Lewis KOed Von Erich, turning heel in front of the stunned fairgrounds. Harley covered for the easy pin. 6 min 19 secs

The Fabulous Freebirds v Doom: another fun match. Butch Reed performed an Underhook Suplex, Doom Sleeper and Doom Headbutt, while his partner Ron Simmons landed a Spinebuster on the apron, a Dominator and a Short-Arm Clothesline. Terry Gordy hit a Running Powerslam and Michael Hayes a Slingshot Suplex, Running Knee Smash and DDT. Both units hit some nice double-team maneuvers. Through 17:30 Doom had 5 pin/sub attempts and the 'Birds 3, though the latter were ahead in END. Simmons had executed a few consecutive moves when Gordy tagged out. Hayed went on the offensive, hitting in order a Slingshot Suplex, Fabulous Freebird Spike Piledriver, a pair of single pt moves, then a Figure 4 and finally a Double DDT. Simmons was done, Sinclair made the count and the Freebirds had the win. 20 min 41 secs

Lou Thesz v Mad Dog Vachon: this is a loser leaves town best of 7 series, with Thesz leading 2-0. MDV had a Blatant Choke and Back Drop early, only to be matched by Thesz who performed a Powerbomb and Double Wristlock. After 5 mins the match was even at +1 END. Thesz executed w/ a Belly-to-Back Waistlock Suplex but Vachon immediately did a Go-Behind Takedown & Roll-Up (Thesz kicked out). Thesz wowed the crowd w/ a Superplex. The action went outside where Thesz Slammed MDV through the Announcer's Table. Vacho responded by Slamming Thesz on the Concrete. After Vachon tossed Thesz into the Ring Steps, you had to wonder about a count-out but Sinclair was being quite lenient with that rule. The match was even and back inside the squared circle. Thesz applied a Double Wristlock then performed back-to-back Bridging Belly-to-Back Suplexes. 1-2-3, Thesz wins to go up 3-0 in the series! 13 min 42 secs

Dick Paddlewheel v Bret Hart w/ manager Jimmy Hart: these 2 wrestled to a double count-out on MD 241 after the Mouth of the South bashed Paddlewheel w/ his megaphone. Here, Bret surprised Paddlewheel early w/ the Sharpshooter but inexplicably released the hold after about 10 seconds and taunted the crowd ("I can win this match anytime I want!"). Hart nailed an Inverted Atomic Drop then smashed Paddlewheel in the back of the neck w/ a Flashlight tossed to him by his manager. Less than 3 mins later he used the Flashlight again. A Belly-to-Back Suplex in the 7th min gave Hart the 1st pin attempt of the match, but the exhausted Paddlewheel was able to kick out. The masked man began his comeback w/ 8 consecutive moves, including a Double Knee Facebuster. Hart got a pin attempt w/ a Piledriver and Paddlewheel got on after Jimmy inadvertently distracted his client. Paddlewheel followed up a Jumping Jude Chop w/ a Top Rope Body Press and covered. 1-2-kick out at last second (pin 1-7, rolled 8)! The match was tied at -16 END at the 14:30 mark. Paddlewheel earned a pair of pin attempts w/ a pair of Flying Body Presses but couldn't get the fall. Hart nailed a Jumping Vertical Suplex but Paddlewheel kicked out. A Hart Elbow Smash to Head resulted in some blood. Hart immediately applied his Sharpshooter. Paddlewheel reached the ropes but couldn't avoid the subsequent pin. 1-2-3, the Hitman wins! An amazing bout that somehow came full circle. Post-match, Bret tried to unmask Paddlewheel but the masked man escaped. 18 min 30 secs

The Freeway to Match Day 250 is in full throttle. The World Heavyweight Championship is on the line on MD 247 as the Macho Man Randy Savage defends against 3-time champion Nick Bockwinkel. The winner will headline Match Day 250 against the winner of the 8-man veteran tournament, which begins on MD 247. That tournament has Antonio Inoki v Jerry Lawler, Magnum TA v Ric Flair, Dick the Bruiser v Jimmy Snuka and Hulk Hogan v Andre the Giant!

Semifinals of the tourney will take place on MD 248 and the final on 249. In addition, Verne Gagne returns from injury and looks to get some revenge on Bret Hart for the Roll of Quarters incident. Sting meets Rick Rude after the heel attacked him on the ramp on MD 244, resulting in a pre-match count-out. And Lou Thesz looks to end Mad Dog Vachon's RWF career.

Then comes MD 250. United States Champion Terry Funk defends against Bruno Sammartino in a Steel Cage match w/ an added stipulation - this is the last chance for each man, the loser will not get another United States Championship match! The Crusher faces Lex Luger, with the latter upset over Crusher turning on him on MD 244. Kerry Von Erich matches up against the man who turned on him, Ed Strangler Lewis. The Minnesota Wrecking Crew will defend the World Tag Team Championship against an opponent to be named. And Dick Paddlewheel will battle Bret Hart in an Unmask or Tape the Mouth Match (if Paddlewheel loses, he will be unmasked, but if Paddlewheel wins, Jimmy Hart will be disallowed from speaking for 3 months)! More matches will of course occur, including the big World Heavyweight Championship encounter between either Savage or Bockwinkel and the winner of the veteran tournament.

Match Day 247
Warfield Theatre
San Francisco, CA
Referee = Red Shoes Unno

The first 4 singles matches are the first round of the Veteran's Tournament to determine who gets the World Heavyweight Championship title shot on MD 250.

Antonio Inoki v Jerry Lawler: the Masked Superstar watched from ringside and distracted Lawler (-3 END). Superstar was getting some revenge for Lawler interrupting his pre-match interview on MD 242. Inoki dominated the match, earning 5 pin/sub attempts to 0 for the King. Inoki got the pin after a Fall-Away Slam at 5 min 25 secs.

Dick the Bruiser v Jimmy Snuka: Snuka gave new meaning to his name "Superfly" when he flirted with a woman in the crowd during his entrance. Unfortunately, that woman turned out to be Bruiser's girlfriend, and he was PISSED! Dick almost ended the match w/ a Quick Pin Move w/ a Fist Full of Tights in the 2nd minute, but Snuka got his hand on the ropes at the last second (pin 1-8, rolled 6 but 6 6-sided). Snuka then performed the next 6 moves, including a Knee Drop and Missile Dropkick. Later, Snuka used his entire arsenal, applying a pair of Brain Claws and nailing a Superfly Splash and a Diving Headbutt. But Bruiser hung on. Snuka bashed him w/ a Fan's Beer Bottle. Bruiser went for a 2nd Rope Knee Drop but Snuka rolled out of the way and then, unseen by Unno, cracked Dick w/ a Branding Iron! Snuka covered the bloody Bruiser, 1-2-3, Snuka wins! 15 min 30 secs

The Rock & Roll Express v The Steiner Brothers w/ manager Adnan Al Kaissey: a battle of incompetence as the Express try to break a 4-match losing streak and the Steiners a 7-match streak. Dusty Rhodes & Verne Gagne showed support for the Express by accompanying them to the ring. Rick Steiner took a beating early, eating a Robert Gibson Bulldog and an Express Double Knee Lift. Scott Steiner tagged in hot and nailed a Swinging Neckbreaker and German Suplex. The Steiners teamed for the crowd-pleasing Release Suplex/Doggy Headbutt combo. Ricky Morton tagged in and Rick Steiner returned. Outside the ring, Gibson nailed a Kick to the Back of the Head and back inside Morton got the match's 1st pin attempt after a Diving Kick to Knee. The Express earned 2 more pin attempts after double-team moves. A Top Rope Body Press exhausted Scott. A Double Dropkick finished him off with the Express getting the much needed pin at 22 min 25 secs.

Magnum TA v Ric Flair: the Nature Boy took a Chair Shot to the Knee and Unno stopped the match, despite Flair's protestation. Post-match, Dr. Brenda Buttons examined Flair and revealed that he would miss 6 weeks of action. MTA moves on to face Snuka. 3 min 3 secs

Hulk Hogan v Andre the Giant: Bruno Sammartino showed some gumption by grabbing the mic from Andre to promote his own upcoming MD 250 bout w/ United States Champion Terry Funk. The bell rang, Frank Gotch appeared and tried to help Andre, Unno caught him, and Unno disqualified the Giant! Hogan will face face Inoki on MD 148. 32 secs

WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP: Champion Randy Savage v Nick Bockwinkel: the winner here would not only be the champion, he would be defending the title in the main event at MD 250. Savage hit a pair of Gutwrench Suplexes, a Scoop Slam and earned a DQ point for a Blatant Choke. Bockwinkel performed a Running Clothesline and earned a DQ point for an Eye Gouge. After 8 mins ENDS were Savage +2 and Bockwinkel -5. The shenanigans continued, with each man doing an Eye Gouge, unnoticed by Red Shoes. Savage earned a pin w/ a Flying Body Press but the challenger kicked out. Bockwinkel performed a Piledriver, and then another! He covered, Unno made the count, 1-2-3, and Nick Bockwinkel is the new (and now a 4-time) World Heavyweight Champion! Bockwinkel will headline MD 250! 12 min 9 secs

Match Day 248
Recreation Center
Mill Valley, CA
Referee = Brian Hebner

Rick Martel v Jeff Jarrett: both men left the arena sore and having given their all after this hard-hitting affair. Martel applied a Bow & Arrow ad hit a Gutwrench Suplex and Scoop Slam. Double J bashed Martel w/ a Trash Can. Outside the ring, Jarrett put Martel through 2 tables, and Martel Slammed Jarrett through 1. Back inside Jarrett connected w/ a Lariat and Jumping DDT and set up for his finisher, but Martel reversed and landed a Closed Fist. JJ hit The Stroke. Martel hit a Spinning Spinebuster and applied a Boston Crab. Jarrett then landed a Chair Shot, unseen somehow by Hebner, and covered. 1-2-3, Jarrett wins! Post-match, Carlos Colon, (who broke up a Martel Crab on Snuka on MD 231) joined JJ for a beatdown on Martel. 12 min 18 secs

Sting v Rick Rude: on MD 244, Rude surprised the Icon on the ramp with his finisher before the latter's bout w/ Superstar Billy Graham, resulting in a count-out. Here, Ravishing Rick was too busy admiring his muscles and posing for the crowd to notice the opening bell. Sting caught him in the Scorpion Deathlock but Rude escaped. Rude replied in kind, with a Camel Clutch, but couldn't get the sub. After a Hit w/ Chair and Stump Pulling Piledriver, the match was even at 0 END. Rude hit a Rude DDT and a finishing Rude Piledriver but couldn't get the 3-count. Sting caught Rude in a 2nd Scorpion Deathlock. Rude couldn't escape and, hoping to avoid serious injury, submitted at 7 mi 34 secs. Sting ended a 4-match losing streak.

Verne Gagne v Bret Hart: on MD 238 Hart injured Gagne after punching him w/ a Roll of Quarters. This match went back and forth w/ Verne having the 2 best moves, a Spinning Toe Hold and Head Scissors. The Hitman sent Gagne to the ropes but telegraphed his Back Body Drop. Gagne performed a Sunset Flip. Hebner made the count, 1-2-3, and Verne Gagne got the victory! 7 min 22 secs

The British Bulldogs v The Outsiders: the match opened w/ Scott Hall offering a handshake, then when the Dynamite Kid extended his arm Hall Kicked him in the Ribs. Key moment came at the 6 min mark when Hall missed a corner move and accidentally KOd his partner, Kevin Nash (Hall couldn't tag out for 5 mins while Nash recovered). The Bulldogs dominated the rest of the way, earning 4 pin attempts to 0 for the Outsiders, and got the pin after a Power Slam/Diving Headbutt finisher. 16 min 21 secs

Magnum TA v Jimmy Snuka: the 1st of the semifinal matches in the Veteran's Tournament (winner of tourney gets World Heavyweight Championship match on MD 250). This match went 100 MPH from the get-go. The crowd witnessed the following sequence beginning in the opening minute: Snuka Knee Drop, Snuka Knee Drop, MTA Running Knee Smash, MTA Sleeper, Snuka Headbutt, Snuka Multiple Chops, Snuka Missile Dropkick, and MTA Piledriver. Snuka smashed Magnum over the back w/ a No Parking sign! MTA nailed a Stalling Suplex then Clotheslined Snuka over the ropes. Snuka executed a Scoop Slam onto the concrete then rolled MTA into the ring and covered. Nothing happened though as Hebner was distracted by Snuka's friend Carlos Colon. As the ref finally turned around MTA reversed the pin but Snuka kicked out. The pin attempts came fast and furious as MTA performed a Sitout Suplex, a pair of Diving Knee Drops and Mounted Punches. For his part Snuka performed a Top Rope Body Press and Flying Body Press. Snuka Headbutted MTA then went to the ropes. Superfly Splash!!! 1-2-3, Superfly moves on to the finals! 14 min 50 secs

Hulk Hogan v Antonio Inoki: the 2nd semifinal in the Veteran's Tournament. I think everyone in attendance thought this match, which Inoki controlled, was going to turn the other away after he hit a Big Slap. But a pair of Manji-Gatames put an end to that, and after a Fallaway Slam Inoki hit Bare-Knuckled Punches, covered and got the pinfall. 13 min 14 secs

Match Day 249
Portland International Speedway
Portland, OR
Referee = Drake Wuertz

Tommy Rich v Steve Regal: on MD 242 Regal and Arn Anderson intimidated the official before Rich's bout w/ Flair. This match took 9 moves, all of which were performed by Wildfire. Rich got the pin after a Flying Fist Drop. 4 min 32 secs

The Masked Superstar v The Destroyer: a battle of masked men dominated by the Destroyer who had 7 pin/sub attempts to 2 for the Superstar. The match went deep though and at the end ENDs were Superstar -31 and Destroyer -3. The Destroyer got the pin after a Stepover Toe Hold. 17 min 57 secs

The Midnight Rockers v The Iron Sheik & Nikolai Volkoff w/ manager Stan Hansen: the Rockers hit the Rocker Dropper early. Minutes later Hansen threw a Bullwhip into the ring and Marty Jannetty intercepted and used it. Despite being down a combined +3 to +17 END, Volkoff surprised Shawn Michaels w/ a Powerbomb and got the 3-count. 6 min 8 secs

Lou Thesz v Mad Dog Vachon (loser leaves town best of 7 w/ Thesz up 3-0): MDV had a pair of submission chances early (a Boston Crab and Bodylock) then earned 2 DQ pts in the middle (Eye Gouge and Bites Forehead). He had to be careful and Thesz took advantage, performing an impressive sequence of Stepover Toehold Facelock, Double Wristlock, Stunner and Double Wristlock to even the match at -12 END in the 13th min. Thesz hit a Piledriver and covered but MDV kicked out. Mad Dog Blatantly Choked Thesz but released it just before Wuertz noticed (DQ 1-8, rolled 9). Mad Dog hit a Piledriver but Thesz kicked out. Vachon went deep into his bag of tricks and applied a Crossface Chickenwing. Lou submitted! Mad Dog lives to fight another day. 16 min 27 secs

Dusty Rhodes v Big John Studd: the big man is on a 4-match winning streak. Dusty defeated Studd way back on MD 34. Studd was seen leering at the scantily clad ring girl pre-match and lost focus (-2 END). An opening dusty Atomic Drop seemed to wake Studd up, and he dominated the match, hitting Rhodes w/ a Big Boot, an Atomic Drop of his own and a Stalling Suplex. A Body Slam exhausted the American Dream and a pair of Studd Bear Hugs forced a submission. 9 min 42 secs

VETERAN'S TOURNAMENT FINAL (winner main events MD 250 for the World Heavyweight Championship): Antonio Inoki v Jimmy Snuka: this was a solid if unspectacular back and forth match. Inoki hit a Big Slap early and earned pin attempts w/ a Small Package and Fling Body Press. Snuka landed Multiple Chops and earned a pin attempt w/ a Quick Roll-Up and a submission try w/ a painful Brain Claw. Inoki exhausted Superfly w/ an Enzuigiri then softened him up w/ a Manji-Gatame. Snuka surprised Inoki w/ a 2nd Brain Claw, exhausting him, but he escaped. Inoki applied a 2nd Manji-Gatame, Snuka fought but couldn't escape and was forced to submit at 15 min 39 secs. Inoki gets another shot against Nick Bockwinkel! 4 times they have met, 3 of them for the World Heavyweight Championship, and all 4 times Bockwinkel has emerged victorious.

Match Day 250
Old Renaissance Fairgrounds
Veneta, OR
Referee = Connie Marker

Kerry Von Erich v Ed "Strangler" Lewis: Strangler turned on his friend on MD 246, costing Von Erich his match. Here, the action spilled outside the ring and into the crowd early. Von Erich Power Slammed Lewis onto the chairs of some patrons who had quickly scurried out of the way. Marker had given some leeway but eventually declared a Double Count-Out. 2 min 7 secs

The Fabulous Freebirds v The Brisco Brothers: in the 9th minute Jerry Brisco threw Michael Hayes outside the ring. His brother Jack attacked Hayes but the Freebird fought him off, pumping up the crowd and himself (increase END by 3). Beginning in the 15th min, Pure Sexy had a 10 move run against Jack that included a Superplex, Fabulous Freebird Spike Piledriver and Double DDT. Jerry was forced to do most of the work the rest of the way, and he kept the brothers alive. The Freebirds tallied 7 pin/sub attempts to 3 for the Briscos. It looked like Jerry's strategy of getting a time limit draw was going to work But then in the 30th and final min, Jerry applied a Figure 4 on Terry Gordy, the exhausted Hayes couldn't break it up, and Gordy submitted! BONUS! 29 min 33 secs

Lex Luger v The Crusher: on MD 244 Crusher turned on his friend Luger. The crowd got behind Luger early here, chanting "Lex, Lex, Lex," and pumping him up (increase END by 2). Luger controlled the match, hitting a Rib Breaker and Atomic Drop and getting the pin w/ a Small Package. 7 min 39 secs

UNMASK OR TAPE THE MOUTH SHUT MATCH: Dick Paddlewheel v Bret Hart w/ manager Jimmy Hart: as the name suggests, if Hart wins he gets to unmask Paddlewheel, but if Hart loses the Mouth of the South will have his mouth taped shut for 3 months (don't worry, it will just be during wrestling events). Pre-match, Jimmy Hart went on a long soliloquy about knowing who Paddlewheel really was. At the end, Hart said, "he is the Beach Bum himself, Don Muraco, and after Bret beats him, we'll unmask him and prove it, baby!" In the 4th min the action went outside where Bret used his preferred foreign object, a Singapore Cane. The crowd booed louder and louder and the heel soaked it in. Hart hit a DDT and 2nd Rope Elbow Drop. Hart earned a pin attempt on the exhausted Paddlewheel w/ a Piledriver then cut him w/ a Elbow Smash to Head. The masked man got a pin try w/ a Flying Body Press. The Hitman responded w/ a 2nd Rope Bulldog and then another Piledriver. Hart covered, Marker made the count, 1-2-3, Bret wins!! Paddlewheel stood in the center of the ring post-match and allowed the cackling Jimmy Hart to do the honors. OH MY GOD, it's Ricky Steamboat (admittedly, the crowd seemed much less surprised than the Harts, the official and the ring announcer). Steamboat isn't allowed to be here, he was fired, what happens now?!?!?

TRIPLE THREAT MATCH: Hulk Hogan v Andre the Giant v Frank Gotch: the reason for this one was Gotch's attack on Hogan before the latter's MD 244 bout w/ Andre, and Gotch's attempted interference getting Andre disqualified in the MD 247 rematch. Andre had the 1st 3 pin/sub attempts w/ a Sleeper Hold (Hogan broke it up), a Powerbomb on Gotch (Gotch rolled out of ring) and a Powerbomb on Hogan (Gotch broke it up). Gotch and Hogan teamed up to stop Andre's momentum w/ a Running Clothesline and Shin Breaker. Gotch exhausted Hogan w/ a Bridging Belly-to-Back Suplex. Andre exhausted Gotch w/ a Closed Fist to Head. Andre broke up a pair of pin attempts after Hogan hit a Power Slam and Hogan Leg Drop on Gotch. But it was an Andre Sitting Splash on Gotch that ended this one as Andre got the 3-count before Hogan could break it up. 22 min 17 secs

WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP: The British Bulldogs v Champions The Minnesota Wrecking Crew w/ manager Johnny Valiant: the Crew attempted a pre-match assault but Pistol Pez Whatley was there to prevent it, and he bashed Lars Anderson w/ a Steel Chair (-7 END)! The MWC were in a hole and could never dig out of it. The Bulldogs hit their devastating finisher, the Power Slam/ Diving Headbutt combo, Ole Anderson couldn't break it up, an the exhausted Lars couldn't kick out. The British Bulldogs are the new Retro Wrestling Federation World Tag Team Champions! 6 min 35 secs

STEEL CAGE-UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP: Bruno Sammartino w/ valet/fiancee Precious v Champion Terry Funk: this match also had an interesting stipulation-the loser would NOT get another US title bout. Funk made a grand entrance, posing and preening and really riling up the crowd. Bruno performed a Sunset Flip and also had an early pin attempt w/ a Bridging German Suplex. Funk applied a Sleeper and had a Headlock Takedown. Sammartino then went on a devastating 8 move run that included a Belly-to-Back Suplex, High Knee and Superplex, and culminated in a Bear Hug. Funk was exhausted, Bruno was strong and squeezed and Funk was forced to submit. Bruno Sammartino regains the United States Championship and Terry Funk is done pursuing this title! 7 min 12 secs

WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP: Antonio Inoki v Champion Nick Bockwinkel: Inoki applied a Seated Armbar and Bockwinkel responded w/ a Suplex. Inoki executed a cobra Twist then hit a Michinoku Driver, tiring the champ. All of a sudden, Inoki's friend and former tag-team partner Hacksaw Duggan, appeared ringside. Hacksaw clocked Inoki, KOing him (and turning heel). Bockwinkel covered for the easiest 1-2-3 in the business. 5 min 6 secs

Match Day 251
West High Auditorium
Anchorage, AK
Referee = Johnny Shorn

Tommy Rich v Arn Anderson: on MD 242 before Rich battled Ric Flair, Arn Anderson and Steve Regal intimidated the ref. This one went quick, with Wildfire tiring AA w/ a Piledriver then covering and getting the 3-count. 3 min 34 secs

Ivan Putski v Austin Idol: both came in on long losing streaks, Idol's at 5 and Putski's at 7. The Universal Heartthrob got a big pop from the crowd and stoked the flames w/ some attitude (+1 heat, +2 END). A Polish Hammer in the 2nd minute surprised Idol. The subsequent cover and pinfall shocked everyone. 1 min 36 secs

The Kangaroos v The Steiner Brothers w/ manager Adnan Al Kaissey: these teams engaged in a backstage hullabaloo on MD 242. The Steiners started hot and smartly wouldn't allow Al Costello to tag out. Al Kaissey tossed a Kendo Stick to Rick Steiner, who introduced it to Costello's back. The Steiners teamed for a Release Suplex and Doggy Headbutt. Scott Steiner tagged in and immediately performed the eye-popping Frankensteiner. 2 moves later a Steinerizer ended it, with the Steiners getting the pin at 4 min 39 secs. The Steiners ended a losing streak of 8 matches!

Hacksaw Duggan v Superstar Billy Graham w/ manager Adnan Al Kaissey: this match was scheduled before Duggan's shocking heel turn on MD 250, when he KOed his friend Antonio Inoki. The crowd didn't know who to cheer for her, but they enjoyed an excellent match nonetheless. SBG hit an Exploder Suplex early. In the 4th min, Hacksaw Powerbombed Graham and covered. Shorn counted, 1-2-and as his hand motioned downward for 3 he was pulled from the ring by Al Kaissey! Shorn gave Graham a DQ pt and tossed Al Kaissey. Hacksaw Whacked SBG w/ a 2x4 then followed up w/ a Power Slam and Scoop Slam. Graham earned a pair of pin attempts w/ a Small Package and Piledriver. But the momentum belonged to Duggan. He nearly got the pin after a Bear Hug but Graham kicked out at the last second. A Samoan Drop softened him up and a Body Slam allowed Duggan to get the victory. 12 min 11 secs

Rick Martel v Jeff Jarrett: these 2 faced each other on MD 248 when Jarrett got the pin after a Chair Shot. Carlos Colon joined him for a post-match beatdown. Martel came out hot, hitting 7 of the opening 8 moves, including a Scoop Slam and Diving Crossbody. Colon appeared, grabbed a Steel Chair and swung it at Martel. Unfortunately, depending on your perspective, he missed and clocked Double J (-10 END), exhausting the heel. Looked like it was going to be an easy win for Martel, but maybe we got a taste of Jarrett's toughness when he kicked out of the the pin after the inadvertent Chair Shot. Jarrett then went on a run of his own, performing 9 of the next 10 moves, including a Swinging Neckbreaker, Scoop Power Slam and Lariat. A Small Package looked like the end but Martel got his hand on the ropes just before the 3rd count. A Leapfrog Body Guillotine by Jarrett got the crowd on its feet, but it was a simple but effective Jawbreaker that allowed Jarrett to complete the comeback and get the pinfall. 13 mins

Magnum TA v Randy Savage: the Macho Man attempted a pre-match attack but MTA was ready and hit a Back Body Drop. Savage had a pair of early chances w/ a Small Package and Flying Body Press. But Magnum went on a strong run, hitting 8 straight moves, including a Piledriver and Back Body Drop and culminating w/ a TA Bulldog. Savage persevered and came back w/ a Diving Elbow Drop. MTA kicked out of that pin but succumbed to the next one after a Vertical Suplex. The Macho Man gets the win! 10 min 23 secs

There were some signs in the crowd and some chants throughout the night concerning Ricky the Dragon Steamboat and his status in the RWF. Commissioner Buttons did not appear to be in attendance, and regardless, the issue was not addressed.

Match Day 252
Centennial Coliseum
Reno, NV
Referee = Ralph Hamilton

Argentina Rocca w/ manager Bobby Heenan v Carlos Colon: Rocca put a scare into Colon w/ a Argentine Backbreaker and pin attempt late, but Colon dominated this one. A key moment came in the 7th min when Rocca attempted a 2nd Rope Splash. Colon held up a Steel Chair at the last minute (-6 END). Colon got the pin after a 2nd Rope Senton. 13 min 40 secs

Pistol Pez Whatley v Ray Stevens: a Kick to Groin earned an early DQ pt for the Crippler and demonstrated his disregard for the rules. Whatley was thrown from the ring and attacked by Nick Bockwinkel, Stevens's friend and partner, but the Pistol fought him off, pumping up himself and the crowd (increase END by 3). 9 of the next 10 moves by Stevens killed that momentum though, and he got the pin after a Crippling Piledriver. 8 min 12 secs

Pat O'Connor w/ manager Dick the Bruiser v Kurt Angle: this match was nasty, brutish and short, to quote a famous philosopher. Angle annihilated O'Connor, beginning w/ a Steel Chair to the back, continuing w/ a Release Belly-to-Belly Suplex and Gutwrench Suplex, and ending after an Olympic Slam. WOW! ENDs were O'Connor -12 and Angle +6. 4 min 4 secs

Randy Savage & Austin Idol v The Outsiders: rematch from MD 243 when Scott Hall was caught needlessly battering the Macho Man in a match the Outsiders were controlling. This match was relatively even until the 9th min when Savage attempted the Flying Elbow Drop on Scott Hall who was lying on the announcer's table. Hall moved and Savage smashed through the table (-5 END). Idol was able to tag in but it was all Outsiders after that, as Kevin Nash performed a Drop Suplex and Multiple Knee Lifts, sandwiched around a Backbreaker & Diving Elbow Drop Combo and The Outsider's Edge Combo. Snake Eyes by Nash resulted in the pinfall at 13 min 10 secs. Post-match, the Outsiders lost it over criticism of their methods by the ringside commentator. They ripped the monitors out and threatened to slam him through the table! Fortunately for him, the Midnight Rockers appeared and challenged the Outsiders to a match.

Sting v The Sheik: this was a good solid match w/ a surprise that would change the face of the Retro Wrestling Federation. After Sting hit an early Stunner, the Sheik responded by using a Slapjack (1 DQ pt) and hitting a Double Leg Kick. Sting went outside the ring where he spoke briefly w/ a major Hollywood producer. He returned to the ring and bloodied his opponent w/ a Closed Fist to Head. The Sheik performed another Double Leg Kick and nailed a Swinging Neckbreaker but Sting came back w/ a Press Slam and Diving DDT. The Franchise exhausted the Most Dangerous Man in the RWF w/ a Release German Suplex and covered. Hamilton counted, 1-2-3, Sting wins! Post-match, Sting revealed that he had been asked to star in a movie, and that he agreed to do it and would be taking a 6 month leave of absence. Holy Cow!!! 10 min 42 secs

UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP: Verne Gagne v Champion Bruno Sammartino: the match itself isn't worth going too far into-there were 9 moves, all by Bruno and he got the pin after a Canadian Backbreaker. What happened pre-match was interesting. 2 former members of the RWF, Jumbo Tsuruta and Bob Backlund (both w/ improved cards btw) appeared ringside and shook the hands of the competitors and wished them luck. They also warned them that they had returned and had their eyes on the US title. Sometimes you almost think these things are planned in wrestling, as one wrestler leaves, two return (as an aside, just the other day I made the decision that the next time I had an event where a face turned heel or a new heel wrestler arrived, I would change it to a heel becoming a face or a new face arriving, as I currently have more heels than faces, what w/ injuries and heel turns. It was a nice coincidence that it happened right after Sting departed)

Match Day 253
Municipal Auditorium
Kansas City, MO
Referee = Tom Hamilton

STREETFIGHT: Jimmy Valiant v Jerry Lawler: on MD 243 the Boogie Woogie Man returned from injury only to be sidelined again by Lawler, who mercilessly beat him w/ a Trash Can Lid. As an aside, sometimes these "gimmick" matches don't work the way they should (see Steel Cage match on MD 250-nothing steel cagey happened)-this was NOT one of those matches. Tommy Rich and Magnum TA joined Valiant for his pre-match promo, giving him some added confidence (increase END by 2). Lawler pulled out a Souvenir Baseball Bat early and whacked Valiant. The Boogie Woogie Man set up some Steel Chairs outside the ring. Soon after, Valiant Clotheslined Lawler over the Top Rope then Body Slammed him through said Steel Chairs! Lawler hit a Back Suplex over the guard rail and into the audience. The 2 battled in the crowd, with Lawler nailing an Elbow Drop before the 2 exhanged rapid blows, with Valiant getting the better of it. Back inside the ring, Lawler performed another Back Suplex and covered. The exhausted Valiant was unable to kick out and Lawler got the win. 7 min 50 secs

The Masked Superstar v Greg Valentine w/ manager Jimmy Hart: the Superstar earned some goodwill by signing an autograph for a child. The Masked Superstar was in control of this one, having performed all of the best moves, including a Gutwrench Suplex, Running Knee Smash, Body Slam and Closed Fist that resulted in some color from Valentine's forehead. After a 2nd Rope Forearm, Superstar covered but Valentine kicked out. The Hammer then nailed 3 straight moves, including a Power Slam. The Mouth of the South handed Valentine a Mobile Phone, which Valentine used to bash Superstar on the back of the neck. Valentine covered the exhausted masked man, and Hamilton, who did not catch the skullduggery, counted 1-2-3. Valentine wins! 11 min 59 secs

Dick the Bruiser v King Kong Bundy: the behemoth received a huge crowd reaction (+1 heat, +2 END). Dick the Bruiser then proceeded to take him down more than a notch or 2. A Headlock & Punches, Running Clothesline and 2nd Rope Knee Drop were among the moves used to exhaust Bundy. An Atomic Drop finished him off w/ Bruiser getting the pin at 6 min 37 secs. ENDS were Dick +4 and Bundy -11.

Lou Thesz v Mad Dog Vachon: Thesz leads this best of 7 loser leaves town series 3-1. The key moment came in the 2nd minute when Andre the Giant trudged to ringside and apparently turned face as he clocked MDV (-6 END)! The match lasted 5 more minutes with Thesz performing a pair of Bridging Belly-to-Back Suplexes, a Superplex, a Thesz Press and a Powerbomb, before getting the pin and ridding the Retro Wrestling Federation of Mad Dog Vachon w/ a Belly-to-Back Waistlock Suplex. But wait! Post-match MDV complained that Andre the Giant cost him the match and his livelihood. He seemed to have a point, though with the final ENDs being Thesz +7 and Vachon -22 it may not have been a strong one. Nevertheless, Commissioner Buttons agreed, and announced that Vachon would get ONE LAST CHANCE on MD 257 where he would face Andre the Giant in a match Vachon MUST WIN to stay in the RWF.

WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP: the British Bulldog became the Federation's 1st 2-time tag team champions on MD 250. In this contractual rematch, the Minnesota Wrecking Crew became the 2nd 2-time champs as Lars Anderson got an early pinfall after a DDT on the Dynamite Kid! 1 min 39 secs

Magnum TA v Bret Hart w/ manager Jimmy Hart: Bret grabbed the mic from the ring announcer pre-match but botched his rant. A ringside mic caught the Mouth of the South muttering "that's what I'm here for, baby!" Magnum hit a Back Body Drop then when Jimmy tossed Bret' Singapore Cane into the ring, Magnum grabbed and used it. The Hitman locked in a pair of Sharpshooters though, and got the 3-count from Hamilton after the 2nd. That is 3 losses in a row now for MTA, the worst run in his illustrious RWF career. 4 mi 37 secs
