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.

NEWS: Dave Meltzer is reporting that the Retro Wrestling Federation is planning to cull its roster in the near future. No names were mentioned, and nothing has been officially announced. In addition, Meltzer has reported that the RWF plans on holding a 32-man single elimination tournament w/ the final round to be held on MD 300. The winner is expected to earn a great sum of money.

Match Day 286
Radio City Music Hall
New York, NY
Referee = Tommy Gilbert

Great Baba v The Destroyer: the masked Destroyer took control of this one early w/ a Stepover Toe Hold, Airplane Spin and Running Clothesline, and never relented. He earned pin attempts w/ a Torture Rack Slam, Dropkick and Headbutt, and got the pinfall on th3e overmatched Baba after a devastating Stunner. 7 min 50 secs

Ivan Putski v Greg Valentine w/ manager Jimmy Hart: the Hammer was too busy jawing w/ the crowd to notice the opening bell. Putski took advantage and caught Valentine in a Bear Hug. A quick submission followed at 34 secs. This was the 6th straight loss for Valentine.

Argentina Rocca v The Sheik: the high flyer performed the opening 8 moves, including a Slingshot Suplex, Faceslap w/ Feet and 2nd Rope Splash. The latter resulted in a near fall, as did a later Running Elbow Drop. The Sheik got some offense in w/ a DDT, Fireball and Double Leg Kick. But a Tiger Suplex from Rocca resulted in the victory. 9 min 36 secs

Ric Flair v Rick Rude w/ faction member Harley Race: fun match. Both men applied the Figure 4. Flair earned a DQ pt for a Low Blow. Handsome Harley distracted the ref, allowing Rude to nail a Diving Kneedrop and Rude DDT, then broke up a Flair pin attempt on a Sunset Flip. Gilbert eventually caught on and banned Race from ringside. The Nature Boy set Ravishing Rick up w/ a Stalling Suplex, then finished him w/ a 2nd Rope Kneedrop. 13 min 46 secs

Hulk Hogan v Terry Funk: each man had dominant portions of the match early. A key moment came in the 7th minute when Hogan set up for the Leg Drop but Funk rolled out of the way at the last second. Terry followed up w/ 7 consecutive moves, including a 2nd Rope Elbow Smash, Hangman’s Neckbreaker and Spinning Toe Hold. At the 9 min mark ENDs were Hogan -12 and Funk +3. Hogan rallied w/ 9 of the next 10 moves, including a Body Slam, Power Slam and Hogan Leg Drop. This time Funk couldn’t avoid the thunderous thigh, but he was able to kick out of the pin attempt. Regardless, Hogan latched on a Bear Hug and squeezed. The exhausted Funk could not escape and submitted at 14 min 15 secs. What a comeback for Hogan!

WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP: Champions the Brisco Brothers v The Road Warriors w/ manager Paul Ellering: after the last 2 bouts btwn these teams resulted in time limit draws, this one was stipulated as a No Time Limit match. It needn’t have been as the Road Warriors took control early and got the shocking pinfall at 3 min 39 secs after a Hawk Flying Body Press. Jerry Brisco was the brother pinned and Jack on the outside didn’t seem concerned that his brother wouldn’t kick out. That was a costly error! The Road Warriors are the new Retro Wrestling Federation World Tag Team Champions!

Match Day 287
Alfond Arena, University of Maine
Orono, ME
Referee = Dick Wohrle

Big Van Vader v King Kong Bundy w/ manager Bobby Heenan: a battle of big men had the crowd excited. Vader was all smiles as Commissioner Buttons himself told Vader backstage that he liked the way he looks and has his eye on him (+1 END). But it was KKB who came out hot, performing the opening 4 moves, including a Body Slam. The Weasel was then caught by Wohrle throwing a Fireball at Big Van. Wohrle wasted no time in calling for the bell and disqualifying Bundy. 2 min 36 secs

The Midnight Rockers v The Minnesota Wrecking Crew w/ manager Johnny Valiant: Wohrle showed his consistency when he banned Luscious Johnny from ringside after catching him passing a foreign object. Shawn Michaels wowed the crowd w/ a Moonsault. Lars Anderson nailed a DDT. Marty Jannetty applied a Sleeper. The Crew teamed for an Atomic Drop/Reverse Atomic Drop combo. Ole Anderson performed the decisive Bridging German Suplex on Michaels, Jannetty couldn’t break up the pin, and Worhle counted to 3. 10 min 10 secs

Jumbo Tsuruta v Jeff Jarrett: in the locker room, Jarrett scanned the last rankings (Official Rankings # 26, Jarrett was ranked # Cool and got pumped up seeing his position (+4 END). On MD 287 Tsuruta got the easy pin after Big John Studd botched his interference. Tsuruta opened hot, performing 12 of the opening 14 moves, including a Chickenwing and Jumbo Lariat. Jarrett battled back, earning pin attempts w/ a Flying Body Press and the Stroke. Double J nailed the Stroke again and covered. 1-2-3, Jarrett wins! 13 min 15 secs

Goldberg v Kerry Von Erich: a botched maneuver early left everyone feeling woozy, including Worhle. Ricky Steamboat took advantage and KO’d Von Erich, placing Goldberg on top. Wohrle shook off the cobwebs, made the count, 1-2-3, and Goldberg is the victor. 1 min 56 secs

Andre the Giant v Big John Studd w/ manager Bobby Heenan: Andre won via pinfall on MD 282. Here, Studd tried to intimidate Andre pre-match, getting in his face and taunting him. It didn’t work (-2 END BJS). Studd connected w/ a Short-Armed Clothesline and performed an Atomic Drop early. Andre tried for a Suplex but couldn’t find the strength. At the 5 min mark Studd was tired and Andre was able to lift him for a Powerbomb, exciting the crowd. Andre landed a Kick to Face and Studd responded w/ a Big Boot. Studd tried to apply a Bear Hug but Andre pushed him into the corner and performed a Butt Smash, providing some comic relief. Studd responded though, landing a Heart Punch and applying a Studd Bear Hug. At the 13 min mark the match was even at -14 END. It was Andre the Giant who dug deep and rallied at the end, performing a sequence of Kick to Face, Bearhug, Kick to Face, Chop to Head and Knife-Edge Chops to finish Studd and get the pin. Post-match, Big Van Vader joined Andre in delivering a beatdown to Studd. 16 min 2 secs

UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP: Champion Bruno Sammartino w/ valet/fiancée Precious v Bret Hart w/ manager Jimmy Hart: this was a no time limit STEEL CAGE MATCH to settle this score once and for all. Folks, if you are squeamish, you may want to either stop reading here or at least prepare yourself. In the opening minute the wrestlers climbed to the top of the cage. They were exchanging blows when the unthinkable happened – Bruno Sammartino plummeted to the ring! Wohrle saw Bruno was hurt and immediately called for the bell. A post-match examination by the comely but competent Dr. Brenda Buttons brought to light good news – the injury was NOT as bad as it looked. Sammartino will miss 3 months of action though. The Commissioner determined that the Championship will be vacated and a new champion will be crowned soon. It should be noted that Bret Hart showed class by not grabbing the belt and proclaiming himself champion. He climbed down and demonstrated concern for Sammartino. 55 secs

Match Day 288
Olympic Center
Lake Placid, NY
Referee = Jack Pesek

The Masked Superstar v Jerry Lawler: this is the 1st match back for both men, who were injured in a ring collapse on MD 260. Lawler hit an Elbow Drop early and Superstar applied an Arm Wringer. The action went outside where Lawler Slammed Superstar on the Concrete. Back inside, Superstar performed a Running Knee Smash. Lawler hit a Body Slam then went to the ropes and hit his finisher, the 2nd Rope Fistdrop. Lawler covered and Pesek counted to 3. 4 min 33 secs

Ivan Putski v One Man Gang (making his debut) w/ manager Bobby Heenan: the Brain was kicked out in the opening minute when Pesek caught him trying to pass a foreign object. One Man Gang took out his wrath on Putski w/ a Powerslam and Diving Bulldog. Putski showed he wouldn’t be bullied w/ a Putski Backbreaker and a Closed Fist that cut OMG. A Body Avalanche tired Putski, but he battled back w/a nice sequence that included a Hit w/ Chair, Vertical Suplex and Piledriver. OMG proved too much though and he hit 2 more Body Avalanches and ended Polish Power w/ an Inverted Suplex Slam. Gang got the pin at 10 min 52 secs.

The High Flyers v Austin Idol & Randy Savage: Jim Brunzell and Idol began the match, but as soon as the bell rang both Greg Gagne and the Macho Man jumped in and all hell broke loose. Pesek was unable to regain control and called for the bell and a double disqualification. 31 secs

Bob Backlund v The Crusher: the ringside commentators annoyed Crusher pre-match and he let them know (+1 heat, +3 END). The wrestlers went back and forth early w/ Backlund’s best moves a Fisherman Suplex and Atomic Drop and Crusher’s a Hit w/ Chair and Body Slam on Ropes. At the 8 min mark the match was tied at -1 END. Crusher looked like he gained control when he jammed a Thumb to Backlund’s Throat, but Bob shook it off and hit an Atomic Drop followed by an Atomic Knee Drop. Crusher was exhausted but avoided the pin. Crusher softened Backlund up w/ a Neck Toss across Ring then applied a Full Nelson. Backlund tried to back Crusher into the ropes and force a break but Crusher surreptitiously put his foot on the ropes to block and use for leverage. He squeezed, Pesek didn’t notice Crusher was cheating, and Backlund was forced to submit. But hey, if you aren’t cheating, you aren’t trying. 12 mins

Ricky Steamboat v Ray Stevens: on MD 268 the Dragon pinned the Crippler and on MD 283 Stevens broke up 2 Steamboat pin attempts on Kerry Von Erich. This was a solid back and forth bout. Steamboat had an early pin attempt after a Moonsault and Stevens had one w/ a Quick Roll-Up. Stevens earned a DQ pt but did some damage w/ a Choke on Ropes. Steamboat performed a Top Rope Body Press and Body Slam. Steamboat exhausted Stevens w/ a Head Scissor Takedown then followed up w/ a Karate Thrust and Flying Body Press. The cover was made, Pesek 1-2-3, Steamboat wins! 11 min 9 secs

Magnum TA v Superstar Billy Graham w/ manager Adnan Al Kaissey: upstate New York gave the business to the flamboyant Graham as he made his entrance (+1 heat). SBG seemed in control early as he performed a Shoulder Breaker, Flying Body Press and Release German Suplex. But MTA turned the tide when he reversed a whip to the ropes and caught Graham w/ a Back Body Drop. Magnum then immediately nailed his finisher, the Belly-to-Belly Suplex and covered. 1-2-3, Magnum TA wins! 6 min 37 secs

Match Day 289
Stabler Arena
Bethlehem, PA
Referee = Larry Lisowski

Argentina Rocca v Austin Idol: this looked to be a good battle early as Idol hit a Body Slam and Release German Suplex and Rocca an Airplane Spin and Running Clothesline. But Rocca caught the Universal Heartthrob in an Argentine Backbreaker, and Idol couldn’t escape. The submission came at 4 min 3 secs.

Don Leo Jonathan v Steve Regal: this was a fun bout. DLJ applied a Boston Crab early. Regal hit a Missile Dropkick. Jonathan took control w/ a Corner Belly Bump and Gutwrench Backbreaker. Regal battled back w/ a Diving Headbutt Drop and Hip Toss. DLJ countered w/ an awesome sequence of Huge Knee, Mormon Giant Slam and Spinning Full Nelson. Regal wasn’t done though, earning a pin attempt w/ a Moonsault, nailing a Double Knee Facebuster and landing a Running Knee Smash. But Jonathan was too much. His El Diablo Leglock came close to ending the match, and another Spinning Full Nelson did, with DLJ getting the pinfall at 14 min 24 secs. Post-match, the Commissioner tried to reverse the result but was prevented by Bob Backlund, who Bodyslammed him!

Lex Luger v Carlos Colon: this match was stopped for an injury after Colon missed a 2nd Rope Senton. Further details will hopefully be forthcoming. 49 secs

The Steiner Brothers v The Fabulous Freebirds: the ‘Birds demonstrated why they are one of the premier tag teams in the world. The Steiners had some moments, Rick had a Small Package and Scott applied a Sleeper early, and they teamed for a nice Double Steiner Line. But quick tagging by Terry Gordy and Michael Hayes kept them fresh. The heels teamed for an Eye Rake and Slingshot Suplex then nailed the Fabulous Freebird Spike Piledriver. The teams exchanged Double DDTs before the Freebirds hit a second Double DDT, getting the 3-count on Rick at 13 min 19 secs.

Giant Baba v The Sheik: the most dangerous man in the RWF connected w/ a Closed Fist right away, cutting Baba, then earned a couple of DQ pts for an Eye Gouge and Choke w/ Tag Rope. Baba managed a Coconut Crush and Rib Breaker before the Sheik ignored the rulebook again by pulling out an Ice Scraper and using it on Baba’s forehead. The ref let that one go, apparently. Another Eye Gouge moments later was accounted for and Lisowski called for the bell and DQ’d the Sheik. 9 min 5 scs

WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP: Champion Rick Martel v Nick Bockwinkel: MD 282 resulted in a double disqualification after Ray Stevens entered the ring. Here, Bockwinkel offered a pre-match handshake but was swept off his feet by the wily champion, who was aware of the veteran’s trickery. The challenger got a few moves in (Flying Leg Smash, Blatant Choke, Dropkick) but Martel dominated, with a 5-0 pin/sub attempt advantage. Martel performed a Diving Crossbody, Slingshot Splash and Airplane Spin. Martel retained when he forced the submission out of Bockwinkel w/ a Boston Crab. 9 min 19 secs

Announcement: the RWF has announced that a 32-man single elimination tournament will begin on Match Day 290, with the final match occurring on Match Day 300. It is the MVP Tournament, the Most Valuable Purse in sport, with the winner taking home a shocking $500,000 prize. In addition, the winner will receive the invaluable right to challenge the World Heavyweight Champion AT ANY TIME for the championship!

Match Day 290
Crisler Arena, University of Michigan
Ann Arbor, MI
Referee = Tom “Rocky” Stone

MVP TOURNAMENT ROUND 1: Jimmy Valiant v Randy Savage: the first match of the tournament and the wrestlers were raring to go, jawing at each other in the ring (+1 END) pre-match. The early goings featured a Diving Double Axe Handle by the Macho Man, a Flying Body Press and cover by the Boogie Woogie Man, and Valiant Slamming Savage through a Table. At 8:30 the match was tied at -1 END. Savage caught Valiant w/ an Eye Gouge and a minute later nailed a Piledriver and covered. 1-2-3, Savage moves on, one step closer to the $500,000 prize and a Purse that entitles him to championship shot whenever he wants! 10 min 39 secs

Tommy Rich v Arn Anderson: Rich caught Anderson in a Small Package in the opening minute, and felt he was a victim of a slow count (pin was 1 after ref’s -1 mod, rolled 2). Anderson Hit Rich w/ a Chair and earned a pin attempt w/ the Double A Spinebuster, but Rich controlled most of the bout, earning pin attempts w/ a Stalling Suplex and Piledriver. A 2nd Rope Body press set up the Flying Fist Drop finisher, and Wildfire got the pinfall at 13 min 16 secs.

The British Bulldogs v The Iron Sheik & Nikolai Volkoff w/ manager Stan Hansen: we have a draw and a win each in this festering feud with the heels getting the pin on MD 285. The crowd was charged up for this one and the electricity flowed down to the wrestlers (+2 END each). The Bulldogs went for it early w/ Davey Boy Smith hitting a Flying Body Press and he and the Dynamite Kid teaming for a Powerslam & Diving Headbutt, but they couldn’t pin the big Russian. The Iron Sheik tagged in and turned the momentum outside the ring where he Slammed Smith on the Concrete. Back inside he landed a Running Clothesline, teamed w/ Volkoff for a Double Clothesline then applied a painful Abdominal Stretch. The Kid broke up the latter then tagged in hot, hitting a Diving Body Block. Volkoff returned and Slammed the Kid through the Announcer’s Table. Back inside he performed a Hip Toss, Front Kick and teamed for a Dropkick and Bearhug combo. The Dynamite Kid broke the hold, tagged out and then all hell broke losses as Buzz and Brett Wayne Sawyer stormed the ring, running roughshod over everyone. Neither team could answer Rocky’s 10 count so he called for the bell and ruled the match a Double Count Out. 11 min 18 secs

MVP TOURNAMENT ROUND 1: Bob Backlund v Bret Hart w/ manager Jimmy Hart: Backlund had the momentum early after applying a Leg Lock, Crossface Chickenwing and Arm Bar and performing a Snap Suplex. The Mouth of the South tried to change that by distracting Backlund and Stone, which allowed Bret Hart to connect w/ a Chair Shot (-5 END). Backlund somehow shook it off and applied another Crossface Chickenwing and minutes later another Leg Lock. At the 11 min mark ENDs were Backlund -1 and Hart -16. The match was all but over. But then the Hitman hit a 2nd Rope Elbow Drop and applied the Sharpshooter. Backlund squirmed free but was hit by an Inverted Atomic Drop. Hart covered, 1-2-kick out at the last second! Hart had the momentum now and Backlund was on his heels. Perhaps most importantly, Brett had Jimmy, who threw a Fireball at Backlund, allowing Bret to apply the Sharpshooter anew. Backlund was able to get free but couldn’t avoid the subsequence cover and 3-count. What a comeback for the Hitman! 14 min 4 secs

MVP TOURNAMENT ROUND 1: Andre the Giant v Rick Rude w/ faction member Ed “Strangler” Lewis: this was a tough ask for Ravishing Rick, but after a failed Piledriver attempt, he landed a Kick to Knee and walloped the Giant w/ a Kendo Stick. Rick had the referee’s attention when Lewis entered the ring and DDT’d Andre, but Rocky turned around in time and saw the move. He called for the bell and disqualified Rude. The heels delivered a beatdown to Andre post-match. 2 min 35 secs

MVP TOURNAMENT ROUND 1: Dusty Rhodes v Kerry Von Erich: each man stuck to his tried and true moveset early w/ Von Erich performing a Powerslam and 2nd Rope Knee Drop and Rhodes Dusty Punches, a Dropkick and the Bionic Elbow. Von Erich was exhausted and when Dusty applied the Figure 4 at 6:30, ENDs were Von Erich -11 and Rhodes +2. I feel like we have been here already. Von Erich executed a Vertical Suplex and hit some single pt moves but Rhodes kept the pressure on w/ Hit w/ Chair, Kick to Groin, Chop Block, High Knee And Elbow Smash and Sleeper Hold. Kerry began his comeback w/ a Body Slam then exhausted Dusty w/ a Superplex. A pair of single pt moves set up a devastating Sit-Out Powerbomb. Von Erich covered, Stone counted, 1-2-3, Von Erich wins! 15 min 20 secs
