Match Day 266
Hippodrome
Paris, France
Referee = Red Shoes Unno

Tommy Rich v Carlos Colon: Wildfire opened the show hot, hitting a Frankensteiner, Release German Suplex and Elbow Smash. Colon used devious means to get into the match, knocking out Unno and biting and choking Rich in the ropes before the ref recovered (-10 END). Colon hit an Elbow Smash and a 2nd Rope Senton but couldn’t get the pin. A Piledriver looked like the end but Rich kicked out at the last second (pin 1-9, rolled 10)! Rich then hit a Piledriver of his own and covered. 1-2-3, Tommy Rich wins! This was the 4th consecutive loss for Colon who falls to 6-11-1 overall. 14 min 50 secs

Pez Whatley v Hacksaw Duggan: this is the 2nd of a Commissioner-declared best of 7/loser leaves town series. Whatley got the early pin in the 1st bout. Pistol Pez had a pair of early pin attempts here w/ a Flying Body Press and Quick Roll-Up but Hacksaw kicked out and proceeded to take control w/ a Shoulder Block and Bear Hug. A second Bear Hug forced the submission out of Whatley. 8 min 12 secs

Lex Luger v The Crusher: this feud began on MD 244 when Crusher turned on his friend, Luger. It continued into MD 259 when Crusher DDT’d Luger during the latter’s bout w/ King Kong Bundy. Here, the referee took a bump after a Crusher Kneebreaker Face Smash. While the referee recovered, Polish Power Ivan Putski snuck into the ring and performed the dirty deed, KOing Crusher and placing the dazed Luger on top. Unno came to and made the 3-count. Luger wins! 1 min 32 secs

Antonio Inoki v Harley Race: after the events of MD 263, where Race had help pre-match but Inoki got the pin after finding and using Handsome Harley’s hidden Hammer, this is indeed a feud! The action went outside early where Race got tossed into the Ring Steps then Body Slammed Inoki onto the floor. Back inside, Harley performed a pair of dangerous moves, a Diving Headbutt and Piledriver. Inoki’s efforts to battle back were squashed when Rick Rude distracted the ref, allowing Race to batter Inoki w/ a Kendo Stick, conveniently left under the ring. Race followed up w/ another Piledriver and got the victory. Race leads the feud 2-1. 6 min 12 secs

Magnum TA v Ric Flair: a MD 247 Chair Shot by MTA injured Flair’s knee and kept him out of action for 6 weeks. The Nature Boy looked for revenge pre-match but Magnum was ready and blocked Flair’s Chair assault and used it himself (-5 END)! Through 6 mins the match was even with both men tired. Flair went on a 7-move run that featured a Stalling Suplex, DDT, Double Knee Facebuster and Figure 4. Magnum stayed alive and hit his finisher, the Belly-to-Belly Suplex. Flair kicked out, hit MTA w/a Low Blow, unseen by Unno, then locked in his patented Figure 4 once more. Magnum fought but couldn’t flip over or reach the ropes. Submission at 12 min 36 secs.

WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP: Champions The Brisco Brothers v Ray Stevens & World Heavyweight Champion Nick Bockwinkel: the challengers had to be careful after Bockwinkel earned 2 quick DQ pts after being caught twice performing Blatant Chokes. Bockwinkel & Stevens teamed for Double Piledrivers while the Briscos hit a Body Slam & Shinbreaker combo. A Punch to the Groin by Stevens forced Unno to give his final warning. Stevens got lucky when Unno was distracted and didn’t catch a Kick to Groin. Leave the Briscos’ groins alone! With Jack Brisco and Stevens in the ring, Bockwinkel tried to interfere w/ a Big Boot but Jack ducked and Steven’s took it in the face. Brisco covered, 1-2-3, Briscos retain! This was the 6th consecutive win for the brothers. 17 min 16 secs

Match Day 267
West Palm Beach Auditorium
West Palm Beach, FL
Referee = Brian Hebner

Ed “Strangler” Lewis v Pat O’Connor w/ ally Dick the Bruiser: Lewis dominated and barely broke a sweat, getting the pin after a sequence of Stranglehold, Figure 4 and Body Slam. The important stuff happened post-match, when Commissioner Buttons officially announced that a Gauntlet Match will take place on MD 273 to determine the # 1 contender for the World Heavyweight Championship. Qualifying matches will occur before that, with Lewis facing Jumbo Tsuruta, Ric Flair v Rick Martel, Lex Luger squaring off against Lou Thesz, Ricky Steamboat confronting Ray Stevens, and a triple threat among Austin Idol, Greg Valentine and Steve Regal. That last one gave those in attendance a hearty chuckle. 13 min 18 secs

Ivan Putski v Arn Anderson: Putski has had his issues w/ Anderson, most recently on MD 261 when the Enforcer broke up a Putski pin attempt on Steve Regal. This was a fun and even match. The action went outside early where Anderson twice Slammed Putski on the Concrete. Back inside, Ivan landed a Closed Fist and drew first blood. Putski performed a Scoop Slam and Putski Backbreaker. Anderson applied a Hammerlock. A Polish Power Press Slam impressed the crowd, and a Polish Hammer resulted in the 3-count. 13 min 39 secs

The Midnight Rockers v Doom: the heels were introduced first and then attacked the Rockers as the faces entered the ring, repeatedly striking Shawn Michaels and Marty Jannetty in the head before dragging them into the ring (-3 END). No wonder then the Rockers took this one into the crowd after the bell rang, where both teams brawled. Double count-out! 1 min 16 secs

Verne Gagne v The Destroyer: on MD 261 Gagne pinned the masked man then beat him w/ a Steel Chair. This one was barely underway when Big John Studd appeared, wielding his Singapore Cane. He swung, missed Gagne but nailed the Destroyer. Gagne got the easiest 1-2-3 in the business on his KO’d foe. 38 secs

Dusty Rhodes v Jimmy Snuka: the match started fast w/ Rhodes hitting a Dusty Atomic Drop and Dropkick and Snuka a Tiger Suplex and Missile Dropkick. The Crusher tried to help Superfly but it backfired when he clocked him and not Dusty w/ the Steel Chair (-8 END). Snuka excited the crowd w/ a Moonsault and followed up w/ a Flying Body Press. But Dusty Punches and the lethal Bionic Elbow proved too much and the American Dream got the pinfall at 10 min 32 secs. Crusher returned and he and Snuka gave Dusty a beating.

Hulk Hogan v Randy Savage: both men were a little confused in the back as to why they weren’t being included in the Gauntlet Match plans. Percy Buttons let them sweat a bit before he made a pre-match announcement here that the winner of this match will face Nick Bockwinkel for the big belt on MD 268. Thus, this match MUST have a winner. Other than an all-you-can-eat fish fry, I don’t think anything could have excited these West Palm Beach residents more. Hogan nailed a Body Slam to begin the proceedings. The Macho Man hit a Diving Axe Handle and both men went tumbling out. Savage KO’d Hebner then applied a series of illegal moves (Choke on Guard Rail, Grind Face into Ring Steps) before Hebner recovered (-10 END). Savage applied a Blatant Choke and earned a pin attempt w/ a Piledriver. Hogan was gassed but hit an Atomic Drop and Running Clothesline. The crowd was behind him and he responded w/ Hulked Up Punches. Hogan applied a Bear Hug and executed a Stalling Suplex and Big Boot. BOOM-the Hogan Leg Drop! Savage kicked out but the match was even at the 11 min mark. The Macho Man climbed the ropes and nailed not one but TWO Diving Elbow Drops. The cover, the count, Savage wins! WAIT! The Commissioner returned and reversed the result, saying Savage should have been DQ’d for KOing the ref and performing the illegal moves. The Hulkster gets a title opportunity! 12 min 23 secs

Match Day 268
The Scope
Norfolk, VA
Referee = Drake Wuertz

Argentina Rocca w/ manager Bobby Heenan v Jeff Jarrett: this had the making of something special as Rocca hit a Flying Dropkick and Tiger Suplex early and Jarrett a pair of Jawbreakers. But when Rocca seized control w/ the crowd-pleasing Faceslap with Feet and Moonsault, Heenan got involved, turning on his client and bashing him w/ a Singapore Cane, the same cane used by his former client, Big John Studd. Jarrett covered for the easy pinfall. Studd appeared from the back and he and Heenan embraced! 5 min 42 secs

Jimmy Valiant v Rick Rude: the bell rang and these two immediately took it outside and into the crowd. Their lack of restraint resulted in a double count-out. 30 secs

Bob Backlund v The Sheik: a pre-match chair assault by the Sheik was thwarted by Jimmy Valiant, who was walking to the back and used the Chair on the Sheik (-7 END). Backlund applied a Crossface Chickenwing right away and got the early submission. 40 secs

The British Bulldogs v The Iron Sheik & Nikolai Volkoff w/ manager Stan Hansen: the action went outside early here too, but Wuertz demonstrated a little more patience w/ the combatants. Davey Boy Smith Slammed Volkoff onto the Concrete and into the Ring Steps. Hansen and the Iron Sheik intervened the triple-teamed the Bulldog. The Dynamite Kid tried to make the save but was beaten down (and injured for 3 weeks). Wuertz rightfully disqualified the heels. 3 min 5 secs

Ricky Steamboat v Ray Stevens: the winner here would qualify for the MD 273 Gauntlet Match. The Crippler took control early with a pair of submission holds, an STF and Sleeper. On the Sleeper, Wuertz lifted Steamboat’s arm and it fell flat to the mat but then he clenched his fist and powered out. A Tiger Suplex and Running Clothesline got the Dragon into the bout. Stevens twice used Steamboat’s face as a chew toy and nailed a DDT. Steamboat rallied again, this time w/ a Top Rope Body Press and Body Slam, evening the match at -6 END. The Dragon ended it w/ a 2nd Rope Headbutt and pin. Ricky Steamboat is in the Gauntlet Match! 11 min 7 secs

WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP: Hulk Hogan v Champion Nick Bockwinkel: this match turned in the 4th minute when Bockwinkel’s friend and tag team partner Ray Stevens came to ringside and tossed Brass Knuckles into the ring. Hulk Hogan intercepted and used them (-10 END). Hogan then nailed an Atomic Drop and a Body Slam and covered. 1-2-3, HULKAMANIA!!!! Hogan is the new Retro Wrestling Federation World Heavyweight Champion! 4 min 42 secs

Match Day 269
Kirby Field House, Lafayette College
Easton, PA
Referee = Charles Robinson

Goldberg (making his debut) v Superstar Billy Graham w/ manager Adnan Al Kaissey: in this battle of strongmen, Graham took control when he used a Magic 8 Ball (his preferred foreign object) tossed to him by Al Kaissey. He drew blood when he used it a 2nd time. Superstar applied a pair of Bear Hugs then got the pin, and spoiled Goldberg’s debut, after a Shoulderbreaker. This ain’t the WCW, son! 8 min 42 secs

Don Leo Jonathan v Terry Funk: on the way to the ring Funk flirted w/ an attractive hottie in the crowd, who turned out to be Jonathan’s girlfriend! Funk went on an 8-move run early, highlighted by Snap and Stalling Suplexes. Jonathan locked in the El Diablo Leg Lock twice but couldn’t get much other offense in. A Spinning Toe Hold looked like the end for the exhausted Jonathan but he managed to avoid the pin. Funk then threw DLJ out of the ring, climbed to the top rope and went for a Flying Elbow Smash. Jonathan moved out of the way and Funk crashed onto the floor. The referee counted, DLJ climbed back into the ring and Terry Funk was counted out! 13 min 26 secs

The Road Warriors w/ manager Paul Ellering v The Outsiders: 12 pin/sub attempts for the Warriors to 2 for the Outsiders. But Hawk and Animal had trouble putting their opponents away. The key moment came in the 24th minute when the Outsiders hit their finisher, Backbreaker +Diving Elbow Drop, but Scott Hall gloated and taunted the crowd instead of going for the pin. The toothpicked one must have regretted his choice as he experienced immediately after, in order, a Doomsday Device, Powerslam and Superplex. Animal covered, Robinson counted, 1-2-3, Warriors win! Post-match, Hall and Kevin Nash lost it over comments made by the ringside commentators, smashing a Steel Chair. The Midnight Rockers came out and issued a challenge. 25 min 18 secs

Kerry Von Erich v Big John Studd w/ manager Bobby Heenan: this confirms that Heenan is officially back w/ Studd (see events of MD 268). Von Erich came in leading the feud 2-1 and dominated the match, hitting a Gutwrench Suplex and Powerslam after tiring Studd. The crowd roared when Kerry caught Big John w/ a Discus Punch. An Iron Claw almost finished the match and a 2nd Rope Knee Drop did, with Von Erich getting the 3-count at 10 min 47 secs. Post-match, Von Erich’s interview infuriated Studd, who was seen smashing road cases and catering tables backstage. So this feud hasn’t ended.

Antonio Inoki v Rick Rude: Inoki was looking for revenge after the events of MD 266, where Rude distracted the referee, allowing Harley Race to use a Kendo Stick then hit his finisher and get the pin on Inoki. Antonio had a sweet 8-move sequence early that included a Gutwrench Suplex, Big Slap, Enzuigiri and Seated Armbar, tiring Ravishing Rick. Rude battled back w/ a Rude DDT and Eye Gouge then hit the Rude Awakening and covered, using the ropes as leverage (increasing pin rating by 3). Robinson counted, 1-2-3, Rude wins! OR DID HE?!?! Commissioner Percy Buttons reviewed the tape and reversed the result of the match, disqualifying Rude! 10 min 54 secs

Lou Thesz v Lex Luger w/ the winner qualifying for the Gauntlet Match on MD 273: Thesz earned some goodwill (+1 heat) when he stopped to sign an autograph for a child. This short bout featured a Belly-to-Back Waistlock Suplex (isn’t that just a German?), Headlock and finishing Overhead Suplex by Thesz, who got the pin at 7 min and 35 secs. Thesz will be joining Ricky Steamboat, Steve Regal and Rick Martel, with one slot left, in the Gauntlet Match.

OH NO! I swear the results of the RWF are not predetermined! I am typing up the MD 270 results now and realize that I posted in the MD 269 results a qualifier for the Gauntlet Match that was not determined until MD 270. In my defense, I did already run MD 270 when I posted the results of 269. I did 268-270 this past weekend then posted the results one at a time. OOPS and sorry! MD 270 results to be posted soon.

Match Day 270
Maine Fairgrounds
Lewiston, ME
Referee = Earl Hebner

Verne Gagne v Jimmy Snuka: solid opening match w/ the crowd getting into it early when Snuka performed Multiple Chops, a Moonsault and a Missile Dropkick. Verne was more technical, applying a Side Headlock and a Single Leg Boston Crab. Snuka went to the air w/ a Diving Headbutt, came off the ropes and landed a Knee Drop and applied his own submission move, the Brain Claw. Snuka finished Gagne off w/ a Backbreaker and got the pin at 13 min 23 secs.

TRIPLE THREAT MATCH (winner qualifies for the Gauntlet Match on MD 273) - Greg Valentine w/ manager Jimmy Hart v Steve Regal v Austin Idol: highlights were a Double DDT delivered by Valentine and Idol and a Double Powerbomb by Valentine and Regal. The match culminated w/ Regal Slamming Valentine on the Concrete then performing a Hip Roll. He then climbed back into the ring and viciously Whipped Idol into the Corner and covered. The Hammer was too winded to break up the pin and Hebner counted 1-2-3. Steve Regal joins the Gauntlet Match! 11 min 59 secs

Magnum TA v Kurt Angle: two guys fighting to get themselves back into the top 10 and championship contention. MTA took control early, hitting 7 consecutive moves, including a TA Bulldog and Diving Knee Drop. Angle put an end to that w/ a Release Belly-to-Belly Suplex followed by Multiple German Suplexes. An Olympic Slam looked like the end but Magnum kicked out. MTA got in a few single pt moves but an Overhead Suplex from the Top Rope by Angle resulted in the pinfall. 10 min 56 secs

Andre the Giant v King Kong Bundy: these 2 came in tied w/ 3 wins apiece against each other w/ Andre getting the pin in the last bout on MD 150. Everyone but Bundy had a laugh when his entrance music was replaced by the theme from The Smurfs. The 2 leviathans went at each other from the get-go w/ Andre connecting w/ a Kick to Face and performing a Choke and Bundy landing a 2nd Rope Elbow Drop and Body Block and getting in a Kick to Groin. Andre earned the 1st attempt w/ a Body Slam. At the 8:30 mark the match was tied at -4 END. KKB exhausted the Giant and cut him open w/ a Closed Fist. Bundy nailed the Atlantic City Avalanche but Andre kicked out. Andre responded w/ a Sitting Splash and covered. 1-2-3, Andre wins! 11 min 12 secs

2 OUT OF 3 FALLS MATCH (with the losing team receiving their pink slip from the RWF) - Ox Baker & Baron von Raschke v The Sheik & Larry Zbyszko w/ manager Paul Dangerously: with their careers on the line you knew both teams would give everything here. Dangerously tried to get involved early but botched his interference, clubbing the Sheik instead of Baker. The Sheik was unflustered and applied an Armpit Claw and Sleeper and nailed a Sit-Out Powerbomb. Both Zbyszko and the Baron tagged in. Zbyskzo came at Von Raschke w/ a Lit Cigar but BVR took it away from him and burned him. The ref only saw the latter portion though and disqualified the Baron and Baker, giving Zbyszko and the Sheik the 1st fall. The Baron was irate and took the Sheik to the outside and Slammed him through the Announcer’s Table (-8 END). The Sheik seemed to have hurt his neck, but he continued the match. Back inside, BVR used a Hammer, hit a Stalling Suplex and applied a Nerve Hold, exhausting the Sheik. Zbyskzo tagged in hot and performed THREE consecutive Piledrivers. A Flying Body Press gave Zbyszko a chance for the win but the Baron got his foot on the ropes at the last second. The battle went back and forth, with the Sheik performing a Swinging Neckbreaker, Baker a Heart Punch, Zbyszko an Abdominal Stretch and the Baron a Chop to Forehead. Zbyszko surprised BVR w/ a Shoulderbreaker and covered. Baker came in but the Sheik met him w/ a Dropkick, the count was made, 1-2-3, the Sheik & Zbyszko win the 2nd fall and the Baron and Baker are fired!! A post-match examination by Dr. Brenda Buttons revealed that the Sheik suffered a neck injury and would miss 3 weeks of action. 19 min 6 secs

Rick Martel v Ric Flair (winner qualifies for the Gauntlet Match): Martel went for the Boston Crab early but Flair countered w/ a Low Blow before Martel could lock it in. Martel showed some range w/ a Bow & Arrow submission but Flair escaped. Apparently Flair had had enough and snapped, grabbing a Steel Chair from ringside and belting Martel and the referee. DQ! Martel qualifies for the Gauntlet Match! 5 min 29 secs

Match Day 271
Alumni Stadium, University of Massachusetts Amherst
Amherst, MA
Referee = Jackson James

Pistol Pez Whatley v Hacksaw Jim Duggan (3rd match of loser leaves town best of 7 series, tied 1-1): Nick Bockwinkel (who was the recipient of Duggan’s help when the latter turned on his friend Antonio Inoki) and Ray Stevens intimidated the referee before the match (+5 END Duggan). Hacksaw dominated this short bout, hitting a Power Slam, landing a Blatant Low Blow and performing a Scoop Slam. A 2nd Power Slam resulted in the pin. 4 min 55 secs

Dick the Bruiser v Carlos Colon: a frustrated Whatley was still at ringside when Colon made his entrance. A slight by Colon was enough to set the Pistol off, and he gave him an unpleasant beating (-4 END). Dick the Bruiser opened w/ a Rake Eyes w/ Boot Laces and nailed a DDT. Colon battled back w/ a Swinging Neckbreaker and Gutwrench Suplex. But a Bruiser Sleeper tired Colon and after 20 secs he was out. James called for the bell and awarded Dick the match via submission. This was the 5th straight loss for the proud Colon. 3 min 39 secs

Tommy Rich v Frank Gotch: Wildfire started well w/ an Elbow Smash but his flame was soon extinguished when the Destroyer climbed onto the apron and distracted James, allowing Gotch to use an Ice Scraper on Rich’s forehead (-10 END). Gotch applied a Toehold and Cross Kneelock and got the submission on the exhausted Rich w/ a Cloverleaf at 3 min 50 secs.

The Fabulous Freebirds v The Russians: there was some talk that a win here would give the Russians a title match. Makes sense because they came out like gangbusters, hitting the opening 11 moves, including a Nikita Koloff Power Slam and Ivan Koloff Russian Sickle, before an exhausted Terry Grody could tag out. Michael Hayes came in hot and went on one of the most exhilarating runs I have ever seen. In order, he teamed for an Atomic Drop/Reverse Atomic Drop combo, applied a Badstreet Leg Lock, hit a DDT, applied a Figure 4, rolled Nikita into a Small Package and Choked Nikita while Gordy distracted James. Nikita, who hadn’t had a move against him before Pure Sexy tagged in, was now exhausted. Ivan returned and performed 3 single pt moves then Gordy tagged in and the Freebirds teamed for a Double DDT. Gordy covered, James counted, 1-2-3, the Freebirds complete the miraculous comeback! 10 min 48 secs

Jumbo Tsuruta v Ed “Strangler” Lewis (winner is the final qualifier for the Gauntlet Match on MD 273): Lewis applied a Spinning Leg Hold and connected w/ a Strangler Clothesline. Jump hit a Jumping Knee and Whipped Lewis into the Ring Steps. At the 7:30 mark the match was tied at +1 END. Jumbo took over, applying a pair of Abdominal Stretches and Slamming Lewis through the Announcer’s Table. Tsuruta performed a Waistlock Side Suplex and covered. 1-2-3, Jumbo is in the Gauntlet Match! 12 min 34 secs

Dusty Rhodes v Randy Savage: a dream match-up that got off to a great start for the American Dream; after a Stunner, Dusty Atomic Drop and a pair of Running Clotheslines, Savage was tired only 4 mins in. The Macho Man predictably responded, hitting a Gutwrench Suplex, Macho High Knee and Piledriver. At the 9 min mark the match was tied at -4 END. Savage impressed w/ a Vertical Suplex, holding Rhodes aloft for a few extra seconds. Dusty caught Savage w/ a Piledriver and covered, but Savage kicked out. Randy sent Dusty to the ropes, stepped in to catch him off guard and performed a quick Scoop Slam. Savage covered and got the 3-count for the victory. 11 min 9 secs

Match Day 272
Glens Falls Civic Center
Glens Falls, NY
Referee = John Cone

The Midnight Rockers v Doom: these teams had a double count-out on MD 267 as they brawled into the crowd. Doom took care of business quickly here as they teamed for a Double Hip Toss, Headbutt & Flying Elbow combo and Double Vertical Suplex. Butch Reed got the pin w/ a Quick Pin Move w/ a Fist Full of Tights at 5 min 37 secs. Doom improves to 4-9-1 overall.

Pat O’Connor w/ ally Dick the Bruiser v The Destroyer: the masked Destroyer performed a Flying Body Press then a Stepover Toe Hold but while celebrating O’Connor rolled him up in a Small Package. The Destroyer kicked out but the momentum had turned and O’Connor dominated the rest of the way. O’Connor hit a Belly-to-Back Suplex and applied a Spinning Arm Lock before performing Short-Arm Scissors and getting the quick-count pin. 9 min 6 secs

Lex Luger v Jeff Jarrett: Double J hit his finisher, the Stroke, early but taunted the fans and gloated instead of covering. The pair exchanged power moves w/ Luger performing a Gutwrench Suplex and Jarrett a Scoop Power Slam. Luger took control w/ a Bear Hug and a pair of Big Lex Hip Tosses. Jarrett evened the bout w/ a Release German Suplex and Figure 4. Lex nailed an Atomic Drop and cut Jarrett w/ a Closed Fist. But Jarrett executed a perfect Leapfrog Body Guillotine and covered the exhausted Luger. Cone counted 1-2-3, pin! 9 min 32 secs

The Rock & Roll Express v Austin Idol & Randy Savage: this was an excellent even bout w/ the Express earning 5 pin/sub attempts and the heels 7. Savage introduced a Singapore Cane to Ricky Morton’s back, which resulted in some color. Idol twice applied the Las Vegas Leglock to Robert Gibson. The Express teamed for a Drop Toehold & Elbow Drop combo and a Double Knee Lift. Idol tagged, the Macho Man climbed the ropes, BOOM, Diving Elbow Drop! Cone counted to 3 and Idol & Savage improved to 7-2-1.

Antonio Inoki v Harley Race: Handsome Harley leads the feud 2-1 AFTER Rick Rude interfered and Race used a Kendo Stick on MD 266. Inoki started fast, nailing a Fallaway Slam and applying both a Cobra Twist and Manji-Gatame. Race rallied w/ a Body Slam then took Inoki outside, where he Body Slammed him on the Concrete and Slammed him into the solid steel Ring Steps. Race then went to the top rope and attempted a 2nd Rope Kneedrop to the outside. Inoki rolled out of the way at the last second (-5 END Race)! Back inside Inoki earned pin attempts w/ a Gutwrench Suplex and Enzuigiri. Race earned one w/ a Piledriver. Both men were exhausted. Inoki performed a Fallaway Slam and covered. 1-2-3, Inoki wins the bout and evens the feud! 14 min 24 secs

UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP – 2 OUT OF 3 FALLS MATCH - Champion Bruno Sammartino w/ valet/fiancée Precious v Bret Hart w/ manager Jimmy Hart: after consecutive time limit draws, this match needed a definitive outcome. The Hitman offered a pre-match handshake then Kicked Bruno in the Ribs when he proffered his hand. Bret hit a Pendulum Backbreaker and Bruno a High Knee early. At the 5:30 mark the match was tied at +2 END. Bret nailed a 2nd Rope Elbow Drop and followed up w/ a Piledriver and covered. Cone counted, 1-2-3 and Bret had the first fall! Hart hit the 2nd Rope Elbow Drop again and this time applied the Sharpshooter but Bruno used his savvy. Hart surprised Bruno wq/ a Snap Suplex and covered the exhausted champ. Again, Cone went to the mat, and again he reached the count of 3. Bret the Hitman Hart is the new Retro Wrestling Federation United States Champion! 10 min 40 secs

Referee = Mike Chioda

Jimmy Valiant v Rick Rude: on MD 268 these two had a double count-out. Here, a new wrestler appeared pre-match to cheer on the Boogie Woogie Man. It’s Giant Baba! Valiant applied a Sharpshooter early and Rude nailed a Running Powerslam. At the 5 min mark the match was tied at +2 END. Valiant took control w/ a Gutwrench Suplex, Kick to the Gut and Multiple Atomic Drops, but Rude battled back w/ a Stump Pulling Piledriver and another Running Power Slam. Valiant executed the final 5 moves of the match, including a pair of Elbow Smashes that resulted in the pinfall. Big win for Valiant! 12 min 16 secs

Ivan Putski v The Crusher: on MD 266 Crusher was about to pin Lex Luger when Putski interfered and KO’d Crusher, allowing Luger to get the pin. This turned out to be a squash match, as Putski failed to get in a single offensive move. The Crusher performed a Neck Toss across the Ring, a Press Slam and a Running Clothesline. He finished him w/ a Bolo Punch, getting the pin at 4 min 40 secs and ending a 4-match losing streak.

The Kangaroos v The Minnesota Wrecking Crew w/ manager Johnny Valiant: the ‘Roos never got going in this one as MWC coasted to victory. A Double Running Lariat resulted in the pin and Crew victory at 5 min 10 secs. This was the 5th consecutive loss for the Aussies.

Verne Gagne v Ric Flair: the Nature Boy tried a pre-match sneak attack but was thwarted by the veteran Gagne, who gave him a Punch to Gut for his troubles. The match started fast w/ Gagne performing a Flying Body Press and a pair of Spinning Toeholds and Flair a 2nd Rope Knee Drop and an Elbow Drop. A Flair Belly-to-Back Suplex at the 6 min mark evened the match at -1 END. Flair earned a pin attempt w/ another 2nd Rope Knee Drop but Gagne kicked out. Verne then went on a 6-move run that included a Rebound Crossbody Block, a Superplex and a Sleeper. Verne hit a Fisherman Suplex and covered. Chioda made the count, 1-2-3, Gagne wins! 11 min 19 secs

Bob Backlund v Nick Bockwinkel: another intriguing matchup. Bockwinkel had the 1st pin/sub attempt of the match w/ an Indian Deathlock. He also bashed Backlund over the back w/ a Steel Chair. Backlund had a pin attempt w/ a Bridging German Suplex then nailed a Snap Suplex. The action went outside where Backlund Slammed Bockwinkel through the Announcer’s Table then Bockwinkel reversed Backlund into the Ring Steps. This is wrestling! Bockwinkel covered twice after a pair of Piledrivers but couldn’t get the 3-count on his exhausted opponent. Backlund responded w/ 5 of the next 6 moves, culminating in an Atomic Knee Drop. Backlund covered but this time it was he who couldn’t get the 3-count. Bockwinkel performed his set-up move, the Flying Leg Smash, then hit another of his finishing Piledrivers. He covered, Chioda counted, 1-2-kick out at last second (pin 1-10, rolled 11)! Backlund was able to latch on w/ his Crossface Chickenwing. Bockwinkel couldn’t escape and was forced to submit at 13 min 51 secs. What a win for Backlund!

GAUNTLET MATCH – WINNER GETS WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP BOUT ON MD 275: Lou Thesz and Steve Regal began the bout. Thesz was methodical here, taking his time and conserving energy, while still delighting the crowd w/ a Belly-to-Back Waistlock Suplex, Powerbomb and Thesz Press. He got the pin w/ a 2nd Powerbomb at 6 min 6 secs, having only allowed 2 offensive moves by Regal. Next in was Jumbo Tsuruta, and while Thesz was fresh at the beginning, he wasn’t 2 mins later. Tsuruta tried a Quick Pin Move w/ a Fist Full of Tights then took the action outside the ring, where he Slammed Thesz through both the English- and Spanish-speaking Announcer’s Tables. Back inside, Tsuruta applied a pair of Abdominal Stretches and hit a Diving Dropkick. But he couldn’t get the exhausted Thesz to submit or be pinned. Lou caught Jumbo in a Double Wristlock then went for his own Quick Pin Move w/ a Fist Full of Tights. 1-2-3, Thesz wins again! Round 3 brought Ricky Steamboat into the fray. Thesz started strong, performing 6 of the opening 8 moves, including a Headlock and a pair of Double Wristlocks. But Steamboat was too quick for Thesz at this point and a Flying Body Press allowed the Dragon to get the pinfall. The final entry was Rick Martel. Martel Hit Steamboat w/ a Chair and executed a Hip Toss. Steamboat performed a 2nd Rope Headbutt. Martel did another Hip Toss but the ref got distracted by Pistol Pez Whatley, Steamboat’s tag team partner. The Dragon took the opportunity to roll up Martel in a Small Package as the ref turned around, but they were too close to the ropes. Martel hit 4 moves in a row, including a Diving Crossbody, before Steamboat hit 4 of his own, including a Karate Thrust. In the 30th minute of this Gauntlet Match, ENDs were Steamboat -17 and Martel -2. Steamboat applied a Seated Armbar and squeezed. Martel was able to break the hold then applied his own submission, the Boston Crab! Martel sat back, Steamboat was unable to turn over or drag Martel to the ropes. Submission! Rick Martel wins the Gauntlet Match and faces the World Heavyweight Champion Hulk Hogan on MD 275! 31 min 9 secs

Match Day 274
Indianapolis Convention Center
Indianapolis, IN
Referee = Jack Doan

Goldberg v Arn Anderson: The Enforcer hit a DDT early and almost got the upset win, but Goldberg got his foot on the ropes at the last second. Goldberg hit a Pumphandle Suplex and Gutwrench Suplex. The match was getting interesting when Anderson lost it, pummeling Goldberg w/ a Steel Chair and necessitating the locker room running out to stop the beating. Goldberg wins via DQ. 6 mins

Don Leo Jonathan v Greg Valentine w/ manager Jimmy Hart: this match featured the best moves of each grappler, w/ Jonathan performing a Big Body Slam, Corner Belly Bump and Mighty Loco Armlock and the Hammer Knife-Edge Chops, a Pointed Elbow to Gut and a Figure 4. The match culminated w/ Valentine’s friend Randy Savage jumping into the ring and swinging an unidentifiable foreign object. He missed Jonathan and KO’d Valentine, resulting in the easy pin for Jonathan. 9 min 55 secs

Magnum TA v Austin Idol: the mustached Magnum TA made quick work of the Universal Heartthrob, getting the pin after a finishing Belly-to-Belly Suplex at 3 min 34 secs.

Kerry Von Erich v Superstar Billy Graham w/ manager Adnan Al Kaissey: sun or no sun, the guns are always out w/ these 2 buff guys. Von Erich (and Studd-see next match) were taking a break from their feud. The crowd didn’t pop for Von Erich like he thought they would (-2 END, -1 heat). Graham was in control of this one, having performed a Backbreaker to Slam, Superplex and Side Headlock. But Superstar botched a Powerslam, bumping the ref and KOing both he and Von Erich. The replacement ref, Chad Patton, rushed to the ring from the back and reached a 10-count, resulting in an unsatisfying double count-out. 7 min 15 secs

Argentina Rocca v Big John Studd w/ manager Bobby Heenan: on MD 268, the Brain turned on his client Rocca, and it was revealed that he was in cahoots w/ Big John. Studd had a 12-move run that included a Body Slam, Big Backbreaker and Heart Punch. The latter would prove to be his go to move in this match as he pounded Rocca w/ it 4 times, finally getting the pin at 15 min 44 secs. ENDs at the time of the pin were Studd -1 and Rocca -36, so it was a dominant performance by Studd.

WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP: The Road Warriors w/ manager Paul Ellering v Champions The Brisco Brothers: the highlight here was a sequence in the 19th minute where the Warriors hit the Doomsday Device on Jack Brisco (Jerry Brisco broke up the pin), a Body Slam by Hawk (Jerry broke up the pin) and a Clothesline by Hawk (yep, Jerry broke up the pin). Hawk Body Slammed and covered Jack but he was able to kick out. Jerry was forced to carry the match most of the rest of the way for the champs, and he held his own, hitting a Release German Suplex, Reversing Animal into the Ring steps and bashing him w/ a Chair. The bell rang just after a Hawk Leg Scissors Choke and we had a 30 minute time limit draw.

Match Day 275
Des Moines Civic Center
Des Moines, IA
Referee = Justin King

Kurt Angle v Terry Funk: Angle asked the Commissioner for more opportunities and was told he would be given a championship match if he wins his next 2 bouts. He had to feel confident here as Funk came in on a 5-match losing streak. Angle dominated early, performing the opening 11 moves of the match, including Multiple German Suplexes and an Olympic Slam. At the 8 min mark ENDS were Angle +5 and Funk -13. The match was over, right? WRONG! Funk rallied, stopping Angle’s momentum w/ a Sleeper, tiring him w/ a 2nd Rope Elbow Smash, and inflicting more hurt w/ a Stalling Suplex and Brainbuster. Both men were exhausted, Funk clamped on a Cloverleaf, Angle resisted but couldn’t break free, submission! Funk completes the comeback and spoils Kurt’s championship aspirations. 12 min 51 secs

Giant Baba v Frank Gotch: Baba was making his debut. This was a good even match. Gotch went dirty, twice performing an Eye Gouge. Baba fired back w/ a Rib Breaker and Baba Headbutt. Gotch had a sequence where he applied 2 Toe Hold submissions and hit a Shin Breaker but couldn’t finish Baba off. Giant Baba responded w/ a 16-Bun Kick, a Coconut Crush and a Running Neckbreaker. Baba covered, King counted, 1-2-3, the debutant wins! 15 min 51 secs

The Midnight Rockers v The Outsiders: on MD 269 the Outsiders lost to the Road Warriors then took their frustrations out on the ringside commentators. The Midnight Rockers challenged the heels to a match. Here, the Outsiders attacked Shawn Michaels in the ring pre-match, hitting Double Axe Handles and repeatedly Bashing his Face into the Turnbuckle. Marty Jannetty and Justin King were eventually able to break it up. Michaels never really got any offense going in this one, but Jannetty was able to carry them for a while w/ a Knee Lift, Missile Dropkick, Hip Toss and Body Slam on the Concrete. But it wasn’t enough. Scott Hall was a monster, executing a Fallaway Slam and Gutwrench Suplex on Jannetty and a Belly-to-Back Suplex and Hall Shoulderblocks to Michaels. The highlight was Scott Hall bashing Jannetty w/ a Fan’s Prosthetic Leg! Hall got the pin on Michaels after another Belly-to-Back Suplex and a Piledriver. 17 min 7 secs

Dusty Rhodes v Ed “Strangler” Lewis: we got some blood right away when Lewis connected w/ an Elbow Smash to Head. Dusty retaliated by twice landing Punches loaded w/ Brass Knuckles! Justin King was like Sergeant Shultz, he saw nothing. Dusty Hit Lewis w/ a Chair and performed a Running Bulldog and Stalling Suplex. Strangler gave as good as he got and applied a Sleeper and a Headlock w/ Punches. In the 11th minute ENDs were Rhodes -5 and Lewis -4. Lewis applied the Stranglehold but the exhausted Dusty was able to break free. Dusty sent Lewis to the ropes and set up for a Back Body Drop (as an aside, huge pet peeve of mine, this move almost NEVER works in the current WWE) but Lewis dove over him into a Sunset Flip. 1-2-3, Strangler Lewis wins! 13 min 12 secs

Lex Luger v Randy Savage: Luger took control early and never let up. An Atomic Drop, Scoop Power Slam and Luger Running Forearm had the Macho Man tired after only 3:30. Another Running Forearm, a Gutwrench Suplex and a Torture Rack exhausted the former champion. Luger squeezed, Savage was in excruciating pain on top of Luger’s shoulders, and he submitted. Big win for Lex Luger! 9 min 19 secs

WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP: Champion Hulk Hogan v Rick Martel: the match started slowly w/ a Hogan Stalling Suplex and a Martel Small Package the only noteworthy moves in the opening 6 minutes. But the diehard Iowan wrestling fans were loving it nonetheless. Martel hit a Scoop Slam and then a Gutwrench Suplex. Hogan landed a Running Clothesline but when he set up for a Bear Hug he was met w/ a Closed Fist to Head (which resulted in some color from the blonde and bronzed one). Hogan showed his power w/ a Uranage. Martel went deep into his arsenal w/ a Frankensteiner and a Bow & Arrow. A Small Package and Scoop Slam gave Martel pin attempts but Hogan kicked out. Whether it was instinct or a mathematical calculation, Martel made the right move when he went to the top of the ropes and nailed a Flying Body Press. King counted, 1-2-3, and Rick Martel is the new Retro Wrestling Federation World Heavyweight Champion! 17 min 35 secs

Match Day 276
Boise State University Pavilion
Boise, ID
Referee = Connie Marker

Jimmy Snuka v Ray Stevens: Superfly took control early w/ a Knee Drop and Flying Body Splash but Stevens battled back w/ a Body Stomp and Suplex. Connie Marker took a bumb and the Crippler saw his chance, KOing the referee and applying a series of illegal moves (Kick to Groin, Choke on Ropes, Rake Eyes on Ropes) on Snuka before Marker recovered (-10 END). The proud Fijian would not concede though and rallied w/ 3 single pt moves before applying a Brain Claw and getting the pinfall. Wow! 8 min 36 secs

Pat O’Connor w/ ally Dick the Bruiser v Carlos Colon: these guys (INCLUDING Dick) might have stolen the show. Colon got all riled up over the way the ring announcer introduced him (+1 heat, +3 END). Marker got bumped and tumbled out of the ring on a Whip to Ropes, necessitating Johnny Shorn taking over as official. After being caught executing an Eye Gouge, Colon rolled O’Connor up and almost got the pinfall, but Dick the Bruiser pulled O’Connor free right before the 3-count (unnoticed by Shorn). Colon performed a Gutwrench Backbreaker, Cartwheel Elbow Smash and Double Knee Facebuster and O’Connor a Body Block, Leg Scissors and Spinning Leg Lock. Colon had another chance for a pin after a 2nd Rope Senton. Shorn counted, 1-2-Dick pulled the ref out of the ring!! This time Shorn couldn’t help but notice and booted the ally. The action went outside where Colon Slammed O’Connor into the Ring Steps and O’Connor Slammed Colon through a Table. Back inside, O’Connor hit a Belly-to-Belly Suplex and Piledriver, and Colon a Superplex (kick out at the last second, pin 1-8, rolled 9) and Running Powerslam. Time was running out. O’Connor nailed another Suplex, this one of the Belly-to-Back variety, and followed up w/ another Piledriver. He covered, Shorn counted, 1-2-3 and O’Connor got the win at 19 min 43 secs.

Tommy Rich v The Destroyer: on MD 271 the Destroyer distracted the referee, allowing Frank Gotch to use an Ice Scraper on Rich. If this were the real world, Rich would seek damages, but this being wrestling, Wildfire sought revenge. The Destroyer clamped on a Figure 4 early but after escaping Rich performed 3 straight single pt moves then hit his finisher, the Flying Fist Drop. The easy 1-2-3 followed. This was the 5th consecutive loss for the Destroyer. 2 min 4 secs

Verne Gagne & Dusty Rhodes v Randy Savage & Austin Idol: standard match here, with the faces teaming for an early Double Atomic Drop, the Macho Man performing a pretty Vertical Suplex and Gagne applying a serious Side Headlock. Idol applied a Sleeper and Savage grabbed a fistful of tights w/ a Quick Pin Move, but neither ended the bout. Idol rolled Gagne up in a Small Package and got the near fall (pin 1-3, rolled 4). Dusty tagged in, withstood a Sucker Punch then Body Slammed and pinned the tired Idol. 16 min 19 secs

Andre the Giant v King Kong Bundy: I don’t know if Andre was ever convincing as a heel but the pretense ended pre-match when the crowd gave him a massive ovation for his entrance. You could tell Andre appreciated the gesture. Big John Studd botched his interference early, clocking Bundy w/ a Chair (-8 END). Andre quickly put KKB away w/ a sequence of Knife-Edge Chips, Choke and Chop to Head. This was the 5th straight loss for the behemoth. 5 mins

Antonio Inoki v Harley Race: each man has 2 wins in this feud. What a main event!!! Pre-match, Bruno Sammartino grabbed the mic from Handsome Harley to taunt his upcoming opponent, Bret Hart, saying he was taking HIS US title back. The Destroyer pulled a “Studd,” botching his interference and cracking Race w/ a Steel Chair (-7 END). Both wrestlers spilled out of the ring and were about to be counted out when the Destroyer disabled Shorn. The match resumed w/ the 3rd referee of the evening, Ralph Hamilton. Race almost put Inoki away twice, w/ a Sleeper (sub 1-2, rolled 3) and a Diving Headbutt (pin 1-4, rolled 5). Inoki rallied w/ a pair of Manji-Gatame submission holds and a Fallaway Slam. Race came back w/ Mounted Punches and a cover, but Inoki got his foot on the ropes just in. Inoki flattened Race w/ a Big Slap and covered. 1-2-FOOT ON THE ROPES at the last second! Race hit an Atomic Drop, covered, 1-2-3, victory! Wait, no, one more twist, Commissioner Buttons reversed the result, saying that the replay CLEARLY showed that Race did NOT get his foot on the ropes in time after the Big Slap. Inoki wins! 15 min 39 secs

Match Day 277
Silva Center Hall, Hult Center for Performing Arts
Eugene, OR
Referee = Tom Hamilton

Ivan Putski v Rick Rude: Ravishing Rick made some derogatory comments about Magnum TA’s mother during his pre-match promo, resulting in a challenge from MTA (they will meet on MD 282; NOTE: gentlemen, ladies in attendance that evening will be quite frisky after witnessing the mustachioed heartthrobs). Putski didn’t get too much offense in here (a Powerbomb and a Running Clothesline were the highlights) but he did show he could take a beating, escaping from a Figure 4 and withstanding a Gutwrench Suplex and a pair of Release German Suplexes. But the Rude Awakening ended Polish Power and Rude got the pinfall at 11 min 2 secs.

Dick the Bruiser v Jeff Jarrett: Double J took control w/ a Lariat, Jumping DDT, Figure 4 and Guitar Shot. Dick got some offense in w/ a Eye Gouge (1 DQ pt), a bash w/ a Kendo Stick, resulting in some blood, and a Forearm Smash to Chest. But another Jumping DDT, the Stroke, another Guitar Shot, a Jawbreaker and a Scoop Slam took the fight out of Bruiser. Jarrett executed a pretty Leapfrog Body Guillotine and covered for the 1-2-3. Jarrett has now won 3 matches in a row. Dick the Bruiser showed some real heart by cutting a great post-match promo, complimenting Jarrett while still confidently asserting he will be better next time (+2 heat). 18 min 18 secs

Ricky Steamboat & Pez Whatley v Nick Bockwinkel & Ray Stevens: the heels intimidated the referee before the Whatley/Hacksaw Duggan bout on MD 271, which Duggan went on to dominate. A highlight occurred in the 6th minute when Bockwinkel got caught applying a Blatant Choke, Stevens tired to use a Slapjack on Steamboat but was prevented by Pistol Pez, who used it on Stevens, and Stevens Gouged Steamboat in the Eye. Bockwinkel returned and performed a Hip Roll, Fisherman Suplex and Piledriver. Whatley tagged in and the faces teamed for a Double Atomic Drop and Whatley nailed a Big Headbutt before applying a Boston Crab. Stevens returned and hit Whatley w/ a Body Stomp before Stapling him in the Back w/ a Staple Gun (earning him a DQ pt). After a Stevens Eye Gouge the heels teamed for Double Piledrivers. Stevens covered, Hamilton counted, and Bockwinkel & Stevens got the victory. 16 min 15 secs

Jumbo Tsuruta v Superstar Billy Graham w/ manager Adnan Al Kaissey: the key moment here came in the 9th minute, when Al Kaissey tossed Superstar his Magic 8-Ball. Graham asked whether it was time for a pin, Smashed Tsuruta over the head w/ it, then consulted it for the reason, which was “ask again later.” After a Body Slam, Side Headlock and Gutwrench Backbreaker, Superstar applied a Backbreaker Rack, covered after Tsuruta slipped from his shoulders, and got the pinfall. 13 min 10 secs

Kerry Von Erich v Big John Studd w/ manager Bobby Heenan: Von Erich leads this feud 3-1 after a dominating performance on MD 269. Things looked promising for Studd early after a Heenan Fireball, Atomic Drop and Studd Slam. But a Von Erich Discus Punch tired Studd and turned the tide. Kerry wowed the crowd and stunned Heenan and Studd when he held the big man up and they crashed to the mat in a Vertical Suplex. An Iron Claw exhausted Studd and a Power Slam finished him off. Kerry Von Erich wins the feud, hooray! OH MY GOD-Von Erich went nuts post-match, beating Studd w/ BJS’s own Singapore Cane and scowling at the crowd. It can’t be-Von Erich has turned heel!!! 10 min 43 secs

Bob Backlund v Ric Flair: the Nature Boy tried a sneak attack as Backlund entered the ring but Backlund flipped Flair onto the concrete. Flair dominated the match w/ 8 pin/sub attempts to 0 for Backlund. Flair had a near fall after a 2nd Rope Knee Drop in the 7th minute. Flair hit the same move twice more and also had pin attempts after a Gutwrench Suplex and Back Suplex. A Figure 4 resulted in Backlund conceding at 16 min 57 secs. Flair ended a 2-match losing streak and Backlund’s 3-match win streak.

Match Day 278
Recreation Hall, University of California Davis
Davis, CA
Referee = Bruno Lauer

Pez Whatley v Hacksaw Duggan: this was the 4th match of a loser leaves town best of 7 series, with Hacksaw leading 2-1. This one was all Duggan. He had a near fall after a Body Slam early, then hit a Running Clothesline and Scoop Slam before finishing Pistol Pez w/ a Piledriver and pin. 5 min 36 secs

Ricky Steamboat v Steve Regal: this was a showcase for the Dragon, who performed a Body Slam, Arm Drag, Kneeling Facebuster, 2nd Rope Headbutt and Frankensteiner, w/ the latter especially delighting the crowd. A Flying Body Press allowed Steamboat to get the cover. 12 min 39 secs

Goldberg v Arn Anderson: the locker room had to be emptied to stop Anderson from beating Goldberg w/ a Steel Chair on MD 274. Goldberg dominated this one, performing a Body Slam on Concrete, Hook Kick, Flapjack and Gutwrench Suplex before finishing the Enforcer w/ a Jackhammer. Anderson took his frustration out on Goldberg post-match, and was joined for the beatdown by the Nature Boy Ric Flair. 6 min 23 secs

The British Bulldogs v the Iron Sheik & Nikolai Volkoff w/ manager Stan Hansen: on MD 268 the heels pummeled and injured Davey Boy Smith. Here, the Bulldogs had this one under control early. Smith tagged out after nailing Volkoff w/ a Dropkick to Head. The Dynamite Kid performed a Snap Suplex and Multiple Atomic Drops before teaming for a Powerslam + Flying Headbutt combo. Smith returned and performed a Snap Suplex outside the ring. The Lariat had seen enough and attacked Smith from behind as the Iron Sheik occupied the Kid and Lauer. Eventually, Bruno looked round and began his 10-count. Double count-out! 4 min 2 secs

Lou Thesz v The Crusher: Jimmy Snuka helped Crusher mount a sneak attack during Thesz’s pre-match promo, but with the help of Pat O’Connor Thesz fought the heels off (-3 END Crusher). Crusher opened the match hot, performing the 1st 6 moves, including a Press Slam, Neck Toss across Ring and Crusher Claw. Thesz hit a Thesz Press before the ballon and confetti drop malfunctioned, leaving the ring full out of that garbage. After the restart Thesz took control w/ a Belly-to-Belly Suplex the highlight before hitting Crusher w/ a Belly-to-Back Waistlock Suplex. Thesz covered, Lauer counted 1-2-3, Thesz wins at 9 min 29 secs. Crusher has now lost 5 of his last 6 matches and Thesz improved to an overall record of 18-7-1.

Verne Gagne v Nick Bockwinkel: with his contractual rematch for the World Heavyweight Championship coming up, and coming off another recent loss, Bockwinkel neded to right the ship and garner some momentum. He earned a quick DQ pt for a Blatant Choke then ate a Belly-to-Belly from Gagne. A Thumb to Throat went unpunished but a 2nd Blatant Choke earned Bockwinkel a 2nd DQ pt. Most fans probably had the same idea on where this one was heading, but the former champ got it together and clamped on an Indian Deathlock. Gagne was tired and unable to escape, submitting at 3 min 58 secs. Post-match, Bockwinkel delivered a vicious beating that necessitate the locker room to stop it. Did World Heavyweight Champion Rick Martel receive the message Bockwinkel was sending?
