Match Day 279
Moscone Convention Center
San Francisco, CA
Referee = Tim Fuller

The Rock & Roll Express v The Minnesota Wrecking Crew w/ manager Johnny Valiant: this bout was more than a destruction, it was an evisceration of Ricky Morton. Ole Anderson clobbered him w/ a Simon Says toy, applied a Hammerlock and landed a Clothesline in the opening minutes. Lars Anderson tagged in and hit a Power Slam before Morton was able to tag out. Robert Gibson held his own but when Morton returned the Crew dominated anew. Ole performed a Fireman’s Carry and Lars hit another Power Slam and finished Morton off w/ a Backbreaker and 3-count. MWC has now won its last 3 matches and the R&R Express are 1-7 in their last 8. 12 min 39 secs

Don Leo Jonathan v Austin Idol: Jonathan tired Idol early by performing the opening 6 moves, all single pointers. Idol hit a pair of single pt moves of his own before executing an impressive Press Slam. Idol then lost it after DLJ bounced up, grabbing a Steel Chair and battering both Jonathan and Fuller, who immediately called for bell and disqualified the Universal Heartthrob. 5 min 4 secs

Magnum TA v Ed “Strangler” Lewis: this was an excellent bout w/ enough of a variety to please even the most demanding fan. MTA hit an early Stalling Suplex then earned a pin attempt w/ a Flying Body Press and attempted to force a submission w/ a Texas Cloverleaf. Magnum kept the pace up w/ a Fireman’s Carry and Gutwrench Suplex before nailing a Belly-to-Belly Suplex. Lewis slowed things down w/ a Side Headlock & Punches, Headlock and Stranglehold. Magnum was exhausted and Strangler increased the tempo, performing a Body Slam, Belly-to-Belly Suplex and Spinning Leg Hold. MTA rallied w/ 9 of 10 moves, beginning w/ a Sitout Suplex and ending w/ a Back Body Drop. Fuller counted, 1-2-, Lewis got his foot on the ropes at the last second. Magnum whipped Lewis to the ropes and tried the Back Body Drop again but Lewis was too quick w/ a Sunset Flip. MTA kicked out but Strangler applied his finishing Stranglehold and squeezed. Magnum couldn’t get out of this one and was forced to submit at 19 min 6 secs. Post-match, Lewis was joined by Harley Race, Rick Rude and Superstar Billy Graham, who agreed to form a faction.

The High Flyers v The Fabulous Freebirds: in their only bout, way back on MD 32, the Freebirds won via pinfall. One may be tempted to say this match changed in the 14th minute when Terry Grody threw Brass Knuckles to his partner but they slipped through Pure Sexy’s hands and were picked up and used (-10 END) by Jim Brunzell. But that discounts the fact that pin/sub attempts in this match were 10-0 in favor of the Flyers. Greg Gagne got the pin on Michael Hayes after a sequence of Release German Suplex, a pair of Double Flying Dropkicks, and High & Low Body Block. 26 min 38 secs

Dusty Rhodes v Jimmy Snuka: on MD 267 Dusty pinned Superfly after Crusher botched his interference, but post-match the heels delivered a painful beatdown. Dusty’s friend and tag team partner Verne Gagne provided some retribution here when he came out of the crowd, jumped on the guard rail and delivered a Flying Dropkick to Snuka as he made his entrance. Snuka couldn’t make it to the ring, pre-match count-out!

UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP: Bruno Sammartino w/ fiancée/valet Precious v Champion Bret Hart w/ manager Jimmy Hart: a new wrestler appeared at ringside to cheer on Sammartino-Big Van Vader! A comedic moment occurred early w/ the Living Legend chasing, catching and KOing the Mouth of the South. Bret didn’t take kindly to his opponent’s actions but probably regretted his decision to go outside when he was Whipped into the Ring Steps and Slammed on the Concrete. Back inside, Hart performed a Sunset Flip then hit an Inverted Atomic Drop. Bruno responded w/ a Body Slam and Bruno Punches. The action came hard and fast, w/ Hart performing a European Uppercut, Pendulum Backbreaker and Sharpshooter, and Sammartino a Body Slam, Slam through Table and Death Valley Driver. It was anybody’s match! Bruno executed a Superplex then grasped the champion in a Bear Hug. Bret couldn’t escape and submitted (sub 1-10, rolled 10), or AT LEAST that is what Fuller determined. Bret insisted afterwards he didn’t concede. Regardless, Bruno Sammartino is the new Retro Wrestling Federation United States Champion!! 19 min 24 secs

Match Day 280
Fiesta Hall, San Mateo County Fairgrounds
San Mateo, CA
Referee = Brad Robinson

Dick the Bruiser v Carlos Colon: Dick got the easy win on MD 271 then broke up Colon’s pin attempts on Pat O’Connor on MD 276. O’Connor returned the favor here, preventing Colon from using a Taser and using it on him. Bruiser exhausted Colon w/ his usual offense, a Forearm Smash to Chest, Rake Eyes w/ Boot Laces, a Body Slam and a Suplex. Colon battled back w/a Sleeper, Figure 4 and 2nd Rope Senton. This one could go either way, and it was a 2nd Rope Knee Drop by Dick the Bruiser that resolved the match, w/ Dick getting the pinfall at 10 min 34 secs.

Argentina Rocca v Greg Valentine w/ manager Jimmy Hart: do you like watching Greg Valentine get beat up for a long period of time? If so you would have loved this bout! Rocca earned 10 pin/sub attempts to 1 for the Hammer. Argentina had 3 near falls. Rocca performed his greatest hits, including a Flying Elbow Drop, Slingshot Suplex, Faceslap w/ Feet, Airplane Spin and Argentine Backbreaker. The crowd had a good chuckle when Hart accidentally tripped his client. Rocca got the pin after a 2nd Rope Senton at 18 min 32 secs. ENDs at the time of the pin were Rocca -3 and Valentine -39.

Jimmy Valiant v The Sheik: the Boogie Woogie Man was joined by Bob Backlund and Giant Baba for his promo, giving him added confidence for his bout (+2 END). Backlund was repaying Valiant for his prevention of a Chair attack by the Sheik on MD 268. Here, the crowd erupted when Valiant reversed a Camel Clutch attempt and applied the finishing hold on the Sheik. Later, the Sheik got the hold on Valiant and came close to getting the submission, but Valiant reached the ropes just before reaching his threshold. Valiant earned pin attempts after Multiple Atomic Drops and a Gutwrench Backbreaker. The Sheik had a near fall after a Swinging Neckbreaker and earned another pin attempt after he Threw a Fireball. But Valiant responded w/ a Gutwrench Suplex and got the 1-2-3 from Robinson at 11 min 25 secs.

Hulk Hogan v Ray Stevens: the Crippler attacked Hogan as he entered the ropes, getting in some good shots before the ref broke it up (-2 END). Stevens didn’t have to wait long for repercussions as Hogan nailed a Body Slam and got the pin at 1 min 3 secs.

Pat O’Connor w/ manager Dick the Bruiser v Randy Savage: O’Connor had a pair of early pin attempts w/ Bridging German Suplexes but it was Savage who seemed in control w/ a Blatant Choke, Atomic Drop and 2 Gutwrench Suplexes. The action went outside where some real big time professional wrestling occurred – Savage Body Slammed O’Connor on the Concrete, O’Connor Slammed Savage through both Announcer’s Tables, the Macho Man Slammed Pat through another Table, and O’Connor Bashed Savage w/ a Steel Chair. The action sensibly slowed down for about 5 mins after they returned to the squared circle. O’Connor applied a Spinning Arm Lock and hit a Piledriver. Savage crushed O’Connor w/ a pair of Piledrivers. At the 17 min mark the match was tied at -19 END. The final move of the match was another O’Connor Piledriver. Savage was out. The bell rang. 20-minute time limit draw!

WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP: The Road Warriors w/ manager Paul Ellering v Champions The Brisco Brothers: these teams wrestled to a time limit draw on MD 274. Highlights here included: (1) Jack Brisco Boy Slamming Hawk on the Concrete and the crowd responding by chanting Hawk’s name and pumping him up (+6 END); (2) Hawk distracting Robinson while Animal Choked Jack w/ the Tag Rope; (3) the Warriors hitting a pair of Doomsday Devices, but being unable to pin Jack; (4) the Brisco Brothers applying a pair of Double Figure 4s but couldn’t get the sub; and (5) Ellering using Brass Knuckles on Jack late in the bout. The Warriors performed their finisher again, but the bell rang before Hawk could make the cover. Another time limit draw! The champions had to feel fortunate as ENDs were Jack -30, Jerry Brsico -11, Hawk +2 and Animal -12.

Match Day 281
Aladdin Theatre
Las Vegas, NV
Referee = Tom Foley

Giant Baba v Terry Funk: this was an excellent opening bout, where the ENDs at the time of the pin were Funk -21 and Baba -20. Funk had the advantage early after a Brainbuster, 2nd Rope Elbow Smash and Sleeper. Giant Baba took control w/ a pair of Baba Headbutts, an Overhead Chip and a Running Neckbreaker. Funk hit a Snap Suplex, applied another Sleeper and nailed a Piledriver. Baba hit another Running Neckbreaker and a Powerslam. The match culminated w/ a Funk Piledriver and cover. 1-2-3, Funk wins! 16 min 50 secs

Tommy Rich v Kurt Angle: another fun bout that was tied at -6 END after 9 minutes. The early highlight was a Rich pin attempt not being see by the ref who was distracted by a battle outside the ring between World Heavyweight Champion Rick Martel and Nick Bockwinkel (who will battle for the belt on MD 282). Multiple German Suplexes, an Ankle Lock and a Michinoku Driver put Angle ahead. The medalist finished off Wildfire w/ an Olympic Slam and pin. Post-match, an upset Rich Smashed Angle w/ a Table he pulled out from under the ring. 14 min 19 secs

The Destroyer v King Kong Bundy w/ manager Bobby Heenan: Bundy and Heenan made amends. Both wrestlers came into this one on 5-match losing streaks. It appeared that a key moment in this one came early when Bundy ran at the Destroyer in the corner and lowered his shoulder, only for the Destroyer to move and KKB ram into the post (subtract 1 from control rest of match). But Bundy was able to dominate after, performing a Whip to Post, Slam through Announcer’s Table and Body Slam. But the Destroyer hit a Missile Dropkick against the run of play, covered, and got the 3-count from Foley. 9 min 52 secs

The Steiner Brothers w/ manager Adnan Al Kaissey v The Sheik & Larry Zbyszko w/ manager Paul Dangerously: fans who enjoy watching the Steiners get pummeled, get back up and get pummeled again liked this one. The Sheik & Zbyszko earned 11 pin/sub attempts to 0 for the Steiners. Zbyszko chased Al Kaissey around the ring and KO’d him in the 10th minute. The Sheik earned a near fall in the 19th minute w/ a Sit-Out Powerbomb. The inevitable occurred when Zbyskzo got the pin after an Abdominal Stretch at 23 min 10 secs. Post-match, the Steiners fired Al Kaissey and appeared the turn face.

Lex Luger v Frank Gotch: an Electric Dog Collar was introduced early into this one by Gotch (his new preferred foreign object). Gotch took control w/ a Bridging Belly-to-Back Suplex and a pair of Shinbreakers. Lex hit an Atomic Drop, applied a Bear Hug and wowed the crowd w/ a Luger Suplex. Gotch countered w/ another Bridging Belly-to-Back Suplex and almost got the 3-count, but Luger got his foot on the ropes at the last second. Gotch followed up w/ a Belly-to-Belly Suplex that again resulted in the near fall. Gotch caught Luger w/ a pair of Eye Gouges and earned yet another near fall after a cross Knee Lock. The match reached the 20-minute mark and the bell rang, Time Limit Draw! ENDs were Luger -27 and Gotch -8. Post-match, Gotch delivered a brutal beatdown that necessitated the emptying of the locker room to stop it.

Antonio Inoki v Harley Race w/ ally Rick Rude: Inoki gave a young fan seated next to the entrance ramp a big hug on his way to the ring, earning a fan for life. About a minute into this one all hell broke loose and the fans rioted after the Aladdin Theatre inexplicably ran out of beer! Debris filled the ring and Foley called for the No Contest.

Match Day 282
Starlight Theatre
Kansas City, MO
Referee = Rudy Charles

Jumbo Tsuruta v Jeff Jarrett: this one ended early when Big John Studd climbed onto the apron, swung hit Singapore Cane, missed Tsuruta and connected w/ Jarrett. Double J was out of it and Jumbo got the easy pin. 2 min 26 secs

Verne Gagne v Steve Regal: this match was even early w/ Gagne applying a Side Headlock and performing a Flying Body Press and Regal hitting a Hip toss and Running Clothesline and wowing the crowd w/ a Moonsault. Gagne then went on a 9-move run that included a 3 Flying Dropkicks, and he got the 3-count from Charles. 8 min 30 secs

Ricky Steamboat & Pez Whatley v The Russians: this was the best match of the night and one that really got the crowd going. Whatley threw Ivan Koloff out of the ring early, Steamboat nailed an Arm Drag and tossed Ivan back in, and the faces teamed for a Double DDT. Momentum changed when Nikita Koloff removed the top turnbuckle in his corner and Ivan dragged and repeatedly bashed Steamboat’s head into the steel while Nikita distracted Charles (-15 END). A Russian Sickle looked like the end but Steamboat kicked out. When Ivan tried another Steamboat was ready and nailed a Flying Body Press. Whatley tagged in, applied an STF and earned a near fall after The Flying Willie. Nikita and the Dragon tagged in, with Nikita hitting an impressive Superplex and covered. 1-2-kick out at the last second! Steamboat stretched and made the tag, Whatley hit a Flying Body Press and then a Flying Forearm. Pistol Pez covered, Ivan couldn’t break it up, and Charles counted 1-2-3. 17 min 5 secs

Magnum TA v Rick Rude w/ faction member Ed “Strangler” Lewis: on MD 277, Rude insulted MTA during a promo, and MTA challenged him. Rude hit the opening 3 moves, including a Gutwrench Backbreaker and Eye Gouge. While Rude celebrated, Magnum surprised him w/ a Belly-to-Belly Suplex. Charles counted and Magnum TA was victorious. 2 min 3 secs

Andre the Giant v Big John Studd w/ manager Bobby Heenan: these 2 hadn’t faced each other since MD 137 when Andre won via pinfall. A new wrestler was introduced by the Brain pre-match, One Man Gang! Studd was in control of this one after a Short-Armed Clothesline and a pair of Rear Chokes, both of which were spotted by the referee. As Studd argued with Charles, Andre caught him in a pinning attempt. Charles dove to the mat, his arm counted to 3 and Andre had the victory. 5 min 36 secs

WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP: Champion Rick Martel v Nick Bockwinkel: the heel dripped a Piledriver on the unsuspecting Martel pre-match, when Martel extended his arm for a handshake. Ray Stevens got involved early, causing a melee and a double disqualification. 1 min 11 secs

Match Day 283
Stanley Theatre
Pittsburgh, PA
Referee = Mickey Jay

Big Van Vader (making his debut) v The Crusher: the night got off to a good start with this one. Crusher grabbed the Trumpet of a marching band member (they played the national anthem) and bashed it over Vader’s back, earning a DQ pt. Vader performed a Face Eraser and Falling Power Slam. Crusher nailed a Spinning Hammerlock outside the ring and looked for the count-out, but Big Van climbed back in time. A Vaderbomb and Vader Dropkick exhausted Crusher. Crusher pulled out an Iron Pipe from under the ring and introduced that to the side of Vader’s head, unseen by Jay. Vader rallied w/ a Piledriver and Vadersault, but the foreign objects proved too much to overcome as Crusher hit Vader again w/ the Pipe (this time he received a DQ pt, his 2nd) then followed up with a finishing Bolo Punch. 1-2-3 Crusher wins! 13 min 38 secs

Pistol Pez Whatley v Hacksaw Jim Duggan: these two are embroiled in a best of 7 loser leaves town series, led by Hacksaw 3-1. Briefly, Whatley is leaving town. Duggan performed 7 of the 8 moves in the bout, including his finisher, the 3-Point Stance Clothesline, which resulted in the pinfall. Thank you for your contributions, Pistol Pez. Now, please leave. 4 min 6 secs

Bob Backlund v Superstar Billy Graham w/ manager Adnan Al Kaissey: this one ended early when, after a Backbreaker to Slam, Superstar performed a Quick Pin Move and Grabbed a Fistful of Tights. Backlund glared at Jay afterwards, perhaps because of the tights or perhaps because of the perceived quick-count (pin 1-5, rolled 5). Regardless, Graham earned the winner’s share of the purse. 5 min 39 secs

Verne Gagne & Dusty Rhodes v Doom: early highlights included Dusty & Verne teaming for a Running Bulldog and Head Scissor combo and Double DDT and Doom a Double Hip Toss and Ron Simmons performing a Football Tackles and Gorilla Press Slam. Butch Reed attempted to use a Staple Gun but was thwarted by Gagne, who used it on him! Dusty applied the pressure w/a Figure 4, Bionic Elbow and Double Russian Leg Sweep in sequence but couldn’t finish Reed. Ron Simmons tagged in and went on an 8-move run that included a Football Tackle, Spinebuster and Choke Slam. Gagne tagged in and ate a Double Dropkick and a Diving Shoulder Block. Gagne slowed things down w/ a Sleeper and Side Headlock. Butch returned and earned a pin attempt w/ a Backbreaker but Gagne kicked out. Dusty tagged in and hit a devastating DDT and covered. Jay counted, 1-2-3, faces win! 18 min 22 secs

Ricky Steamboat v Kerry Von Erich: remember that Von Erich turned heel on 277. This match was tied at -2 END at the 7:30 mark. Steamboat then went on a remarkable run that included 6 pin attempts and a Flying Body Press, Diving Headbutt Drop and Body Slam. Ray Stevens appeared and broke up 2 of those pin attempts. Von Erich applied an Iron Claw and got the pin on the exhausted Dragon. ENDs at the end were Steamboat -9 and Von Erich -30. Steamboat must want revenge on Stevens. 16 min 15 secs

Goldberg v Ric Flair: the Nature Boy was talking some serious trash during his promo when Goldberg attacked him in a berserk rage (-5 END). The action went outside early in the match proper w/ each Tossing the other into the Ring Steps and Goldberg Slamming Flair on the Concrete. Back inside, Goldberg nailed a Jackhammer but couldn’t get the pin. Flair landed an Elbow Smash to Head that cut open Goldberg. A Belly-to-Back side Slam and Jackhammer exhausted Flair, but again he kicked out of the cover. Flair reversed the momentum w/ an unseen Front Choke hold, performed a Sunset Flip when he was whipped to the ropes, and caught Goldberg w/ a Chop Block. Flair hit his secondary finisher, a Piledriver and covered. Jay counted quickly (again), 1-2-3, Flair wins! 7 min 17 secs

Match Day 284
Saenger Theatre
New Orleans, LA
Referee = Joey Morella

Dusty Rhodes v Arn Anderson: the American Dream only needed 5 moves, including a finishing Bionic Elbow, to get the pin. Anderson’s overall record falls to 2-11-1. 2 min 39 secs

Verne Gagne v Jimmy Snuka: on MD 279, Gagne took out Snuka on the ramp before the latter’s bout w/ Dusty Rhodes. Both men came out w/ the big guns early, w/ Gagne hitting a Rebound Crossbody Block and Spinning toehold and Snuka a Knee Drop, Flying Body Splash, Headbutt and Brain Claw. Gagne hit 4 straight moves before the action went outside, where Crusher appeared and pummeled Gagne (-4 END). Crusher rolled Gagne back into the ring and Snuka quickly finished him off w/ Multiple Chops and a Flying Body Press. Superfly earned the pinfall at 7 min 36 secs.

The Kangaroos v The Outsiders: short but sweet match. It started hot, w/ Scott Hall performing an Electric Chair Drop, Don Kent hitting him w/ a Trash Can Lid and Hall responding w/ the Hall Buster. After a set of Hall Shoulderblocks, the Outsiders teamed for the Outsiders’ Edge Combo, exhausting Kent. Both Kevin Nash and Al Costello tagged in and things started to look better for the ‘Roos as Costello slowed things down w/ a Rear Headlock then teamed for a Back Rake & Running Bulldog and Double Hip Toss. Nash was able to make the tag and Hall came in hot, hitting a Fallaway Slam before he teamed for the finishing Backbreaker Hold + Diving Elbow Drop. Hall covered, Morella counted, 1-2-3. 9 min 9 secs

Lou Thesz v Ed “Strangler” Lewis w/ faction member Rick Rude: both men came in on highs, as Thesz had won 3 of his last 4 matches and Strangler 4 of 5. This one got crazy. Lewis applied a Sleeper. Thesz broke the hold then Body Slammed Lewis. The Strangler replied w/ a Side Headlock & Punches. All seemed well. An unhinged fan then climbed into the ring and smashed Lewis w/ an oversized Hurricane Glass (-10 END). Thesz then hit Lewis w/ a Sit-Out Powerbomb and looked to be setting up for his finisher. Lewis somehow rallied and caught Thesz w/ the Strangler Clothesline, sending Thesz over the top rope. Lou looked out of it and was unable to beat Morella’s 10-count. Thesz is counted out! 4 min 26 secs

Pat O’Connor w/ ally Dick the Bruiser v Randy Savage: these 2 wrestled to a time limit draw on MD 280. A key moment came in the 6th minute when the Macho Man attempted a Diving Elbow from the ring post onto a prostrate O’Connor on the announce table. Bruiser pulled O’Connor out of the way and Savage crashed through the table (-5 END). Savage just barely made it back into the ring before the 10-count. O’Connor then dominated the rest of the way, performing a Spinning Arm Lock and Belly-to-Belly Suplex and getting the pin after a Spinning Leg Lock. 12 min 55 secs

Antonio Inoki v Harley Race w/ faction member Superstar Billy Graham: Inoki still leads this feud 3-2 after the no contest on MD 281 (the fans rioted after the kegs ran dry). These 2 went at each other from the bell, w/ Race Swatting Inoki w/ a Chair (1 DQ pt) and Inoki hitting a pair of Enzuigiris. In the 10th minute the action went outside the ring, where Hulk Hogan appeared and Body Slammed Race onto the concrete, then rolled him back inside. Inoki covered, Morella counted, but Superstar pulled his friend out (earning a 2d DQ pt). Handsome Harley had a nice 8-move run that included a Piledriver, Vertical Suplex, 2nd Rope Knee Drop and Bridging Fisherman Suplex. After Inoki hit a pair of single pt moves, Race was able to lock in the Indian Deathlock. Inoki didn’t look like he could escape but he was saved by Hogan, who had remained at ringside (sub 1-8, rolled 1, which in my game means a breakup by the ringside ally, if any). A Cobra Twist and Fallaway Slam by Inoki evened the match at -22 END. Inoki applied the Manji-Gatame, but the bell rang indicating that 20 minutes had elapsed. Time limit draw!

I'm not sure how any of these wrestlers survives a Bionic Elbow, Flying Body Splash, or Brain Claw(?), but it sure is entertaining to read your write ups. Thank you for making me smile with every post!

Thanks Bill! That is very nice of you to say. An Iron Claw is when a wrestler extends the fingers in one hand far apart, grasps his opponent’s forehead and squeezes. The pain that Baron Von Raschke or Kerry Von Erich caused was indescribable!

Match Day 285
Morgantown Civic Center
Morgantown, WV
Referee = Nick Patrick

Jimmy Valiant v Carlos Colon: the Boogie Woogie Man performed a Back Rake and Elbow Smash and Colon a Running Clothesline. Valiant complained to Patrick about Colon’s dirty tactics then was pushed into the referee by Colon. Patrick DQ’d Valiant! Just desserts in my opinion as Valiant opened the bout w/ a Back Rake. Colon ends a 7-match losing streak. 3 min 32 secs

Don Leo Jonathan v Austin Idol: on MD 279 the Universal Heartthrob was DQ’d for battering both Jonathan and the official w/ a Chair. Fortunately, Patrick did not suffer the same fate here. Don Leo applied a Mighty Loco Armlock and had a pin attempt w/ a Sunset Flip. Idol applied a Sleeper Hold and Patrick called for the bell, perhaps a little early (Patrick is a heel ref w/ a +2 sub modification for faces). Things looked a lot fishy as Idol pumped the ref’s arm as the latter raised Idol’s in victory. 6 min 36 secs

Tommy Rich v Ray Stevens: these guys went at each other as soon as the bell rang. Rich performed a Stalling Suplex, Elbow Smash and Running Clothesline and Stevens a Whip into the Turnbuckle, Body Stomp and Atomic Drop. Stevens sullied the match and took the advantage w/a pair of Kicks to the Groin. A Crippling Piledriver earned the 1st pin of the bout but Rich kicked out. Wildfire rallied w/ a pair of Release German Suplexes, exhausting his opponent. But the last move would be made by the Crippler, who followed up another Crippling Piledriver w/ Bombs Away. Stevens covered, Patrick counted, 1-2-3, Stevens wins! 10 min 18 secs

The British Bulldogs v the Iron Sheik & Nikolai Volkoff: a good match w/ plenty of highlights. The Iron Sheik had a sequence when he hit the Dynamite Kid w/ a Uranage and a pair of Vertical Suplexes. Davey Boy Smith found and used the heels’ hidden Flashlight (-8 END to the Shiek). Volkoff took Smith for a ride w/ a Powerslam then delivered a Front Kick, but Smith responded w/ a Gutwrench Suplex and Release German Suplex. The Kid had a near fall after a Release German of his own but the Iron Sheik got his foot on the ropes at the last second. Smith earned a pin attempt w/ a Dropkick to Head and the Kid w/ a Bulldog. But it was an Iron Sheik Piledriver that proved decisive, and he got the pinfall at 25 min 31 secs. ENDs at the time of the pin were Dynamite Kid -3, Davey Both -3, Volkoff -19 and Sheik -10. The Bulldogs had to be disappointed in the outcome.

Lex Luger v Frank Gotch: on MD 281 Luger and Gotch wrestled to a time limit draw. Luger showed his power early w/ a Bear Hug but Gotch broke the hold. Gotch applied an Ankle Lock but Luger was able to escape. Luger had a 7-move sequence that included a Rib Breaker and Torture Rack, but couldn’t get the submission. Gotch quickly applied another Ankle Lock on the frustrated Luger and earned the submission (again because of Patrick’s modification). 10 min 55 secs

Dick the Bruiser v Kurt Angle: it was back and forth at the beginning but then turned into a match of runs. Beginning in the 4th minute, the Olympian performed 11 consecutive maneuvers, including a European Uppercut, Superplex and Moonsault. The latter resulted in a near fall as Bruiser got his foot on the ropes just in time. Dick began a run of his own w/ a Bite to Forehead and also landed a 2nd Rope Knee Drop. Angle responded w/ a sequence that began w/ an Olympic Slam and culminated in the Ankle Lock. Angle twisted, Bruiser battled but ultimately succumbed, submitting at 13 min 18 secs. In case no one noticed, the heels won EVERY match on the card.
