Don Hall’s Old Gas House & Eddie Merlot’s presents
AWA Wrestling (1980’s)
Allen County War Memorial – Fort Wayne, IN Att: 11,874



Commentators; Marty O’Neill & Gene Okerlund
Referees; Gary DeRusha & Marty Miller
Ring; John “Bluto” Blutarsky Interviews; Mandy Pepperidge

1. The Great Wojo won by Count-Out over Frankie DeFalco. DeFalco, trying to make a name for himself, was a bit overmatched in the meeting. He was able to line up Wojo for a Corner Splash but his only success with the Splash was suffering from a banged up shoulder. As Frankie was standing trying to rub off the pain, Wojo performed a Flying Dropkick that sent DeFalco tumbling from the ring. Frankie was injured and unable to make Referee Gary DeRusha’s count. 4:07

2. Wild Hogs (King Harley and J.R. Hogg) and Border Patrol (Ben Hernandez and Armando Rodriguez); No Contest. This Brawl began at ringside with neither team entering the ring. The Hoggs used Biker Chains while the Patrol countered with Chairshots and Throwing TV Equipment. The fans were scattering for fear of getting hit. The bell was ringing and ringing as Seurity tried to get some order in this mess. Referee Marty Miller declared this a No Contest but added over the microphone that this would be a heavily fined match. --:--

3. Ironman Reggie Parks; Reverse Piledriver Pin over Terrible Tom Linz. Linz, who is a bit scary on the TV, did a great interview with Mandy Pepperidge. He was awarded extra points although Mandy didn’t notice that Linz reached in her purse and stole a compact. After the match started Linz hid the compact in his hand and used it when punching Reggie. Tom also used Gouge Eyes and Backward Head Slam moves. Iron Man shook off the Linz advantage with a Running Clothesline that left Tom gasping for air. Parks got the pin with a Reverse Piledriver. 9:56

4. The Mad Russians (Boris Zukov and Soldat Ustinov) with Sheik Adnan El Kassie won by Count-Out over The Alaskans (Jay and Mike York). The Alaskans had the advantage mainly because Sheik Adnan kept sticking his nose into the match. He would confront with Zukov and then with Ustinov taking away from moves they were setting up. An Alaskan Doubleteam Splash on Zukov had the Russians in serious trouble. The pin attempt got broken up but the Russians bailed from the ring. The Alaskans followed and a big brawl broke out as expected. Chris Markoff, another coolie in Adnan’s stable, came running into the action. Adnan, a master of deception, distracted Referee Marty Miller as Zukov was slipping back into the ring. The OOR brawl was up the ramp and into the hall when Referee Miller turned to see Zukov in the ring. A Count-Out was called after 10 in favor of The Russians. 15:58

5. AWA TV Title – Brad Rheingans (Champion); Bridging Cradle Suplex Pin over “Asian Assassin” Sato (Challenger). Sato, who likes to have an added advantage, got caught with a Foreign Object and was seriously warned by Referee Gary DeRusha. The Asian Assassin lost points from his total and it took away his game plan. Sato was able to show his rough style with Vicious Choke Holds and some skilled moves; Jumping Spin Kick and a Nerve Hold that he calls a “Nagoya Clamp.” Brad was able to counter these moves but he was hurting from the Nerve Hold. Rheingans was able to turn an Irish Whip into a Head Slam and then the Bridging Cradle Suplex. Brad Rheingans retains the AWA TV Title. 10:43

6. Rick Martel beat Ken Lucas. Lucas had a Sharp Object and unfortunately for him the attempted move got reversed. Lucas got cut on the forehead and was bothered by the blood flow through the match. Lucas and Martel exchanged moves equally and in spite of Ken’s sour attitude this was a technical gem of a match. Martel was able to line up Lucas for a game ending Slingshot Suplex. Lucas was rubbing blood from his eyes so Marty Miller called the match for Too Much Blood. Lucas bailed from the ring while Martel was talking with Referee Marty Miller. Lucas re-entered the ring with a bottle and slammed it to Martel’s head. Rick collapsed to the canvas. The EMT’s were called and Martel was taken out on a stretcher. Lucas grabbed a microphone; “Ya, Martel is a winner alright.” 15:15

7. Nick Bockwinkle with Bobby Heenan and Jumbo Tsuruta; Double Count-Out. This was another technical gem with Armbars, Body Slams, Neckbreaker Vice and Atomic Spike. Bobby Heenan who usually tries to help gain an advantage was fairly quiet but he wouldn’t stay that way with tricks up his sleeve. Bockwinkle caught Jumbo in a Sleeper but Tsuruta was able to reach the ropes and have it broken up. The action went OOR and this is where the advantage is Bockwinkle and Heenan. A Hot Dog Vendor immediately squirted some mustard to the eyes of Tsuruta, Then an Uppercut Forearm sent Jumbo to the floor. The Vendor showed his face that had been hidden and it was Blackjack Lanza. Referee Gary DeRusha missed seeing Lanza as he was distracted by Heenan. Bockwinkle was trying to get back to the ring when Brad Rheingans ran out and smashed a fist to B.J. Lanza and then started fighting with Bockwinkle. Both wrestlers were eventually counted out. 13:38

Lucky’s 13 Pub & The Toasted Frog presents;
AWA Wrestling (1980’s)
Urbain Plains Center – Fargo, ND Att: 5,882



Commentators; Ken Resnick & Ron Throngard & Frank Durso
Referees; Scrap Iron George Gadanski & Wally Karbo
Ring; Straight Flush Tony Interviews; Brainey Baxter

1. Jake “Milkman” Milliman; Guillotine Leg Drop Pin over Dennis Stamp. Dennis had an early advantage in the match after Smashing a Vendor Tray over Milliman’s head. Stamp’s follow-up was to Rake the Eyes and used an Irish Whip. Jake hit Dennis with a Backward Head Slam and then the Guillotine Leg Drop. Dennis who is called “The Tulsa Tornado” was just a prairie wind tonight. 3:59

2. “The California Kid” Tommy Jammer; Gut Wrench Suplex Pin over Sheik Abdullah. The Sheik was able to mount an offense using a Flying Elbow Smash that stunned Tommy. Unfortunately for the Sheik he tried to follow with a Suicide Top Rope Dive and he crashed to the canvas. Tommy took advantage with a Falling Face Wrecker and then the Gut Wrench Suplex for the Pin. 5:23

3. Moose Morowski; The Claw Submission over Buck Zumhoffe. Moose, a very tough customer, came into the arena with a bad attitude and started arguing with some fans. Several fans kept the arguing going and even offered a program for autographing to Moose who immediately ripped it up. Frank Durso at the commentators table mentioned that Moose is notorious for setting up fans to help him gain points on his total. Throngard; “It does seem a bit put on.” Moose head the statement, came to the Commentator’s table and started arguing with Throngard. Buck Zumhoffe, a up & coming preliminary came out with a new gimmick; a Boom Box. He is now introduced as “Rock n’ Roll” Buck Zumhoffe. Buck showed a few good moves but the match belonged to Moose who used Buck’s Boom Box far a Smash over Zumhoffe’s Head. Mosse followed this up with The Claw for the Submission. 4:23

4. Top Guns (Ricky Rice and Derrick Dukes) beat Pretty Playboys (Buddy Rose and Doug Somers) with Sherri Martel. Sherri handed Doug a Sharp Object (Broken Piece of a Compact Mirror) to use a a weapon. Derrick Dukes saw the object and tried to wrestle it from Somers. The result was that Doug was cut over the eye and started to bleed. The injury change to course of the match. The Top Guns used speed to control the match and after a Doubleteam Dropkick, the Guns set up for a Doubleteam Top Rope Leap on Buddy Rose that would have ended the match. Somers was trying to tag in and was bleeding on the canvas. Referee Wally Karbo called the match for Too Much Blood. 14:11

5. The Trooper Del Wilkes won by DQ over Yuri Gordienko with The Syrian Terrorist. Yuri hit his cheat modifier adding points to his total. The Trooper was greeted with cheering and one woman ran into the aisle to kiss him. The Trooper was shocked but grateful adding points to his total. The match was fairly even with each wrestlers having kicked out of pin attempts several times. Wilkes, who also wrestled as The Patriot caught Yuri in a Two handed Neck Claw called “The Big Pinch.” Gordienko was not about to wiggle out of this hold. The Syrian Terrorist knowing that this was the end jumped on Referee Scrap Iron George Gadanski before Yuri submitted. Gadanski called for the DQ. 10:55

6. Wahoo McDaniel; War Dance Kneelifts Pin over Super Destroyer Mark III with Magnificent Mimi. Mimi who wants to add managing to her skills bought SDM III’s contract from Lord Alfred Hayes. Mimi who is a veteran wrestler know her was around cheating and foul play so SDM III is a good add. Mimi tried to help in the match but she ended up costing he wrestler. Mimi had a Book Bag that was Loaded. She swung the bag at wahoo ho was in the midst of a War Dance. She missed and hit Mark III suare in the face. Wahoo used Overhead Chops on the dazed masked wrestler. Then the War Dance Knee Lifts got the pin. 13:48

7. AWA International Title – Billy Robinson (Champion); Bridging Suplex Pin over Mr. Saito with Sheik Adnan El Kassie. Mr. Saito had some salt so before the match began Referee Scrap Iron George Gadanski tried to take the salt. Sheik Adan explained that it was Ceremonial Salt and that Mr. Saito needed to use it for a ceremony before the match. Gadanski allowed Saito to use the salt for the ritual before the match. Scrap Iron forgot to take it away after the ritual. Of course Saito used the saly to gain an advantage. He rubbed it in Billy’s eyes. Saito then used a Vicious Illegal Choke but gadanski broke it up. As Saito and Sheik Adnan were arguing with Referee Gadanski Billy ran over and performed a Single Arm DDT. He followed it with the Bridging Suplex. Billy Robinson retains the AWA International Title. 13:48

Honest Abe’s & Lazlo Brewery presents;
AWA Wrestling (1980’s)
Pershing Center – Lincoln, NE Att: 7,228



Commentators; Lee Marshall & Larry Nelson
Referees; Henry Van Loon & Sockeye Jack McDonald
Ring; Dream Street Rose Interviews; Waldo Winchester

1. Chief Joe Lightfoot; Indian Deathlock Submission over Barnabus Buddy Lane. Chief Joe heard the cheers as he entered the arena. Joe is an Arapaho, native to the Lincoln area. He didn’t disappoint the fans finishing the match with an Indian War Dance and Knee Lifts and then hooked in the Death Lock for the Submission. 3:24

2. Steel Tiger Spike Huber and Tony Leone; Double Count-Out. Leone, who is billed from Naples, Italy, promises to return to the New City unless he gets respect from the fans. Of course they boo as loud as possible when he is announced. Tony claims to be related to Baron Miguel Leone who wrestled the great Lou Thesz several times in the 1950’s but this has not been verified. Huber had the best of this match so Leone in his usual style grabbed Huber’s Hard Hat (Spike wears a Construction Hard Hat to the ring) during a distraction and hit Referee Sockeye Jack McDonald in the back of the head. McDonald took several moments to shake off the daze. By this time both wrestlers were fighting in the 4th row of fans. Sockeye Jack called the match as a Double DQ then changed his mind to a Count-Out not trusting Leone and not wanting to penalize Huber. 3:14

3. Timekeeper Mike George; Slingshot Suplex Pin over Yugo Babich. Timekeeper Mike set the time of 3:45 on his clock. He claims he would pin Yugo within this time. Actually at about the 1:30 mark he seemed to have a pin but Yugo was able to get his foot on the ropes. George was angry at not getting the count but was within a time frame so he could not waste time. Babick gave George some fits for the next few minutes but got caught by Mike for a Head Rammer. Mike finished the match on the dazed Babich with a Slingshot Suplex. The Timekeeper was within his prediction but by only 5 seconds. 3:40

4. The Freebirds (Michael Hayes and Buddy Roberts) and The Long Riders (Scott “Hog” Irwin and Wild Bill Irwin); Double DQ. During an interview a month ago The Long Riders claimed that The Frrebirds were run out of town in Texas by The Von Erich’s. Michael Hayes who reacts to the Von Erich name with scorn lashed back at the Long Riders saying that it was the lack of competition that drove them out. The Riders wouldn’t let up and every interview they attacked the Freebirds as cowards. Hayes came back with The Riders having to use the biker bit again because they were unmasked in Texas. As you can imagine these two team couldn’t wait to get to each other. They ran at full speed to the ring and didn’t wait for introductions. Referee Sockeye Jack McDonald did what he could to maintain some order during the match that had 2 on 2 for the majority of time. Wild Bill had a Biker Chain and Buddy Roberts was cut. It was hard to tell who had gotten cut because the blood was on all the wrestlers. Hog Irwin was trying to use the Chain to hit Michael Hayes who countered with a Chairshot. Wild Bill had a Railroad Spike and Buddy Roberts found a Monkey Wrench under the ring. Sockeye Jack McDonald had enough and called a Double DQ. Security and several wrestlers ran out to help maintain order. 15:18

5. Genichiro Tenryu; 53 Sai (Brainbuster) Pin over Otto Wanz. This was a match to determine the #1 contender to the International Title held by Billy Robinson. The fans didn’t have to make a choice as to who was their favorite. Tenryu, a notorious cheater, was booed from the moment he entered the arena. Wanz on the other hand is well respected. Otto had a pin after a Spinecracker but Referee Henry Van Loon clearly missed it and he knew it. Tenryu was able to get a Kendo Stick he brings to ringside and use it on Otto’s head during a distraction. Referee Van Loon missed this one. Genichiro used his famous 53 Sai (Brainbuster) to get the Pin. Otto Wanz didn’t realize that the pin counted because he had his foot on the ropes. This was the 3rd miss by Referee Van Loon. 12:43

6. AWA American Title – Larry Zbyszko (Champion) with Mr. Ryuma Go; Superkick Pin over Tom Zenk (Challenger). Zenk interrupted an interview that Zbyszko was having with Waldo Winchester. The egotistical Champion was unglued and carried it to the ring. For most of the match it looked like a new champion would be crowned. A Zenk Missile Dropkick followed by a Flying Crossbody looked like curtains for Zbyszko but Mr. Go was able to break up a sure pin. As Zenk readied to continue the attack, Mr. Go used a Karate Chop to the Throat that left Tom gasping for air. Zbyszko was able to perform a super Kick that led to the Pin. Larry Zbyszko retains the American Title. 13:39

7. The Road Warriors (Animal and Hawk) with Precious Paul Ellering won by DQ over The Vachons (Butcher and Mad Dog). The Road Warriors are hated after using their rough style to destroy several team in the AWA. The Vachon’s have waited a long time but have gained fan approval. Butcher and Mad Dog use a “Take No Prisoners” attitude and are not likely to back down from the Warriors. Precious Paul had a Wall Street Journal that he used several times to reach in and smack Butcher or Mad Dog. Of Course his Newspaper was loaded with a Tire Iron. As the match progressed it was obvious that the Warriors had their hands full and then some. Luna Vachon came to ringside to help her father and uncle. Ellering reached in the ring again and Luna responded with some Fire Extinguisher Foam aimed at Ellering but hit Referee Henry Van Loon. He immediately called for the bell awarding the match to The Road Warriors. 19:04

Dotty’s Dumplings & Great Dane Brew Pub presents;
AWA Wrestling (1980’s)
Veteran’s Memorial Coliseum – Madison, WI Att: 9,318



Commentators; Roger Kent & Donna Gagne
Referees; Wally Karbo and Ronnie Etchinson
Ring Carol Kester Interviews; Brainey Baxter

1. Sodbuster Kenny Jay won by DQ over Mr. Ryuma Go. Mr. Go used Karate moves to wear down Kenny but he became complacent. Kenny used a Rope Spring and a Forearm Smash to down Mr. Go and set up a Running Knee Drop. Larry Zbyszko came to ringside and tripped Kenny as he Sprung from the Ropes. Referee Wally Karbo saw the infraction and called for a DQ. Needless to say Larry Zbyszko claimed to Karbo that he never touched Kenny; ”What are you blind? Sodbuster is clumsy and tripped over his own feet.” The decision stood as Zbysko and Mr. Go stormed off. 3:51

2. Bulldog Bob Brown; Falling Hammer Pin over Puppy Dog Peloquin. There was a lot of OOR Action and Peloquin held his own against to tough Bulldog. In fact Brown was reaching for a 2 x 4 under the ring when Referee Ronnie Etchinson saw him reaching for something and gave Brown a stiff warning. Back in the ring the match was in Bulldog’s favor although Peloquin was able to getin a few good shots. A Slingshot off the Turnbuckle performed by Brown led to a Falling Hammer Pin. 4:05

3. Chuck “Monster” O’Connor and Handsome Johnny Starr; Double Count-Out. This is a long going feud that has seen these two combatants face each other many times. Handsome Johnny has the bigger mouth but Monster O’Conner hold the edge in wins. This would not be one of them. In fact when the action went OOR it would never return. Ox Baker, who is managed by handsome Johnny, came out to help his manager brawl with O’Connor. Ox Baker is one of the few who can match O’Connor’s 375 lbs. With the action not re-entering the ring both wrestlers were counted out although it seemed as though Referee Wally Karbo should have DQ’d Handsome Johnny who had the help of Ox. (note; Chuck “Monster” O’Connor would eventually change his name to Big John Studd.) 6:11

4. Terry Gordy with Michael Hayes and Teijo Khan with Sheik Adnan El Kassie; Double Count-Out. Gordy (and Hayes) received extra points for stopping Khan (and Adnan) from insulting Ring Announcer Carol Kester and chasing her from the ring. It has taken the fans a while to adjust to The Freebirds but the Bad Street group seems to have won them over. The action was destined for OOR where it got furious. Adnan called out Soldat Ustinov and Boris Zukov to help Tiejo. Buddy Roberts ran out and The Freebirds held off Adnan’s stable members. Time ran out and both team were Counted-Out. 9:46

5. Baron Von Raschke with Bobby Heenan and Calypso Jim; Double DQ. The fans got into the action on the Baron immediately. On fan dumped some soda over Von Raschke’s head causing the Baron to grab another fans program and rip it up. Bobby Heenan liked the action of the fans who were adding extra points to the Baron’s point total. In the ring VonRaschke drew boos from the fans as he Goose Stepped around the ring. Calypso Jim didn’t seem impressed and as the match progressed Jim was taking charge. Referee Wally Karbo got caught between the wrestlers on a collision and he was dazed and trying to shake it off. Calypso Jim hit the Baron with a Co-Co Head Butt and the Baron was pulled from the ring by Heenan. The Baron re-entered the ring with a Chair. As Referee Wally Karbo was about to turn to see the action, Bobby Heenan threw a Wrench at Calypso Jim. Jim picked it up as Karbo turned to see the action. Both wrestlers had weapons so Karbo DQ both. (note: Calypso is the son of Bobo Brazil) 11:56

6. Crusher/Bruiser (Lisowski and Dick) beat The Sheiks (Blackwell and Patura) with Adnan El Kassie. The Sheiks are hated and this Madison crowd was already in the hating mood. The boos stared the moment Adnan came in leading this nasty tag team. The match was fairly even with The Sheik’s trying to help each other but quite often getting in each other’s way. Patura was in the ring with Bruser while Crusher was fighting OOR with Blackwell. Crusher whipped Blackwell into Adnan and both heels collapsed to the floor. Meanwhile the distracted Patura became the victim of a Bruiser Atomic Drop. Crusher tagged in and performed a Bolo Punch that led to the Pin. 15:45

7. Hardcore Title Match – In a Cage (Must Climb over the Top) – King Kong Mosca (Challenger) beat Bruiser Brody (Champion). Mosca got some unexpected help from Baron Von Raschke who had taken the Wrench from tha canvas after his match. The Baron was at the top of the entrance aisle when Mosca was introduced. He handed Mosca the Wrench. King Kong was able to slip in in his boot. During the match Brody was able to slam Mosca to the cage wall and scrape his face to bloody mess. It looked like curtains for masca when he was able to get the Wrench from his boot and use it in his fist for a smash to Brody’s jaw. Bruiser Brody collapsed to the canvas as King Kong Mosca climbed to victory and collapsed outside the cage. King Kong Mosca is the NEEEEEEEEWWWWWWWWWWW Hardcore Champion. 21:48

Frank, you commented before about seeing some great shows in Memphis in the early 80s. Did you ever see live any of the Jerry Lawler/Andy Kaufman feud? Any memories if you did?

The TV Shows would replay what Andy was doing at the large Mid-South Arena shows in Memphis and sometimes Tupalo. He was obnoxious. He would stand in the middle of the ring and give lessons on how to use toilet paper, soap and brush your tooth. He treated the fans as though they were from Hogs Hollow.

When Lawler 1st approached Andy, it was a great show in that it appeared to be real. Lawler & Kaufman carried it out to perfection. Lawler accused Andy of setting up matches so Andy would have Lawler pick out the woman that Andy would face. Kaufman called himself the Intergender Champion.

Kaufman kept the fans interested in the matches because he would wrestle women in dresses so that any flair of the dress showed their panties. I think this was the give-a way that the women were a set up.

Kaufman in Memphis was a stroke of genius because the fans really went for the show. The Referee Jerry Calhoun was always close by. I think he could control the matches that Lawler had with Kaufman. From what I read Calhoun was in on the set-up and Kaufman lived with Jerry when he was in Memphis so that they coud keep Andy hidden.

Those are good memories! Interesting that Kaufman stayed with Lawler. Makes sense that they were friends considering how well they played up their feud.

They carried the feud al the way to David letterman's Show and in their dispute on Lettman even Davis Letterman didn't know that it was a put on. Amazing. I think it was Andy who used the F word on the Letterman Show in showing his anger with Lawler but it was all a put on.

Kaufman was weraing a neck brace at ther time from a Piledriver by Lawler in the ring.

Tomfooleries & McCoy’s Pub presents;
AWA Wrestling (1980’s)
Municipal Auditorium – Kansas City, MO Att: 10,144



Commentators; Dick Jonkowski & Lord James Blears
Referees; Gary DeRusha & Marty Miller
Ring; Tess Truheart Interviews; “Boogie” Sheftel

1. Earthquake Ferris; Reverse Piledriver Pin over Bodyguard Butch Reed. Things didn’t go well for Reed who flashed a Sharp Object and then tried to use it on Ferris. Reed grabbed a Microphone and slammed it over Butch’s Head. Butch bailed from the ring only to have Ferris follow. When Reed tried to grab a Wooden Soda Crate, Ferris interfered and used it for a Smash to Reed’s back. After re-entering the ring Ferris performed a Backward Head Slam on Butch and then a Reverse Piledriver. 5:56

2. Tom “Rocky” Stone won by DQ over Ali Hassan. Hassan was booed as he entered the arena and he responded by threatening to go into the stands and take care of the culprits. He raised his fist and yelled; “Size alırsınız” (Turkish meaning; I’ll get you.) The points gained on Ali’s total were wasted when he eventually came in the ring with a Chair, pushed Referee Marty Miller aside and smashed the Chair over Rocky’s head. Referee Miller called for the DQ but Stone, the winner, didn’t know. He was being carried out on a stretcher. 4:04

3. The Fabulous Ones (Steve Keirn and Stan Lane) won by DQ over The Doctor and The Bulldog (Dr. Jerry Graham Jr. and Bulldog Don Kent). Referee Gary DeRusha warned Graham Jr. and Kent about foul play. They protested the warnings as favoritism toward the Fabs then proceeded to Doubleteam illegally and break rules OOR. DeRusha was very liberal in this match that had Chairs and Trash Cans being used a weapons OOR. Back in the ring Kent dropped a Screwdriver and Dr. Jerry tried to retrieve it but dropped a Monkey Wrench in the process. That was enough for DeRusha who DQ’d The Doctor and The Bulldog. 14:13

4. David Sammartino Power Slam Pin over Kevin Kelly with Madusa Miceli. Madusa immediately tried to get in the action ans was caught. Referee Marty Miller sent her back to the Locker Room rather then have a DQ. Sammartino used his power to gain an advantage while Kelly was bothered by the loss of his manager. Kelly showed some good moves; Gut Wrench Suplex and Falling face Wrecker but Sammartino was able to counter. Running Forearm Smashes dazed Kevin and a Big power Slam got the pin. Kelly complained that his shoulders were not flush to the canvas and he may have had a point. 7:51

5. Steve “O” Olsonoski won by DQ over Colonel DeBeers. Steve was able to gain a near pin with a Flying Legdrop. The deliberate DeBeers was shaken by this near pin and he attacked Steve with a Swagger Stick, choking and whipping Steve. Then DeBeers stood up and twirled his mustache while Waking on Steve’s chest. Referee Gary DeRusha, who had been dazed from a collision, finally turned to see the action. DeBeers had to ditch the Swagger Stick so he threw it almost hitting DeRusha. That was more than enough for the DQ to be called. 9:14

6. Bob Backlund; Atomic Drop Pin over Blackjack Lanza with Bobby Heenan. The fans hate Lanza and Heenan and the tag team of Duncum/Lanza. The boos began upon the entrance and cups were thrown. This is right up Heenan’s alley as his wrestler gains points on his total. Lanza was able to use a Skull Smasher and a Falling Hammer to almost gain a pin but the skillful Backlund was able to kick out and then mount an offense. Bobby Duncum ran out to help Lanza while Heenan distracted Referee Marty Miller. Duncum used a Loaded Fist to try and punch Backlund. Duncum managed to hit Lanza in the chops. Backlund performed an Atomic Drop on Lanza who was dazed. It lead to the Pin. 12:41

7. AWA Tag Team Title – The Blond Bombers (Pat Patterson and Ray Stevens) (Champions) and The High Flyers (Greg Gagne and Jumping Jim Brunzell) (Challengers); Double Count-Out. This was a match of Speed vs Veteran Ring Savy. The Flyers used High Flying moves; Dropkicks and Top Rop Jumps to impress while the Bombers used Dirty Doubleteaming, Knee Drops and Powerdrivers. The action went OOR where the Bombers are very comfortable. The Flyers counted all the OOR moves and held their own. The count reached the limit and the match was a Double Count-Out. The Blond Bombers retain the AWA Tag Title. 18:58

Commentators; Marty O’Neil & Gene Okerlund
Referees; Bobby Whitlock & Stan Mayslack
Ring; Taffy Tucker Interviews; Corky St. Claire

1. Gorgeous Gary Young and Jerry “O” (Oski); Double Count-Out. Young was hot-dogging from the start of the match and continued when the action went OOR. Gary managed to smash a Trash Can over Jerry’s back that put Oski down to the floor. Young then proceeded to show off; flex his muscles and blow kisses to the crowd. Meanwhile Referee Bobby Whitlock’s count reach 10 and both wrestlers were counted out. The fans cheered as Gorgeous Gary stormed off. 3:23

2. Jay Strongbow Jr beat Bobby Colt. Colt gained the advantage before the match began. He was interviewed by Corky St. Claire and came across as scary yet he promoted future shows in a professional manner. Adding to his total along with the great interview was a roll on his cheat modifier. He should have been more than ready for Strongbow. After a Swinging Neckbreaker Colt tried to get a pin but Strongbow kicked out and then kicked out again. Bobby stared arguing with Referee Stan Mayslack. Jay ran over and Rolled him Up for the Pin. (note; Bobby also wrestles as Hans Mueller at other shows. He seems to have a duel personality.) 7:14

3. Chris Markoff with Sheik Adnan El Kassie and Calvin Prince Pullins; Double Count-Out. This was another match where most of the action was OOR. Unfortunately for Pullins Markoff had the advantage with the Sheik more than willing to add some damage; Eye Rakes, Mouth Ripper and Choke with Robe. AS Markoff, and the Sheik beat on Calvin Referee Bobby Whitlock’s time count ran out. 4:52

4. Lord Zoltan won by Count-Out over Larry “Axe” Hennig. Zoltan evened the difference in points a lttle after attacking Hennig with a Trash Can. Zoltan was able to direct the action OOR where he had his best chance. When Chris Markoff and Sheik Adnan ran in to help Zoltan it is exactly what Zoltan needed. Markoff smashed a Chair over Hennig’s Head. Curt Hennig and Scott Hall ran out to help Larry who was now unconscious. Zoltan slip back in the ring and was awarded the match after Referee Stan Mayslack counted Hennig out. Commentator Marty O’Neill questioned why Zoltan wasn’t DQ’d when Markoff and Sheik Adnan put in their two cents. 9:42

5. Dino Bravo; Belly to Back Suplex Pin over the Gladiator. The fans gave Dino a big ovation as the Quebec native is very popular. Corky St. Claire asked a lady who had on a Dino Bravo shirt; “Why do you like Dino?” She answered; “Because he is a hero who fights the bad guys and he will always be a hero.” This was a very even match that could go either way. The Gladiator tried a Smash to Bravo’s skull with a Helmet but Dino was quick to respond and get the helmet. He smashed The Gladiator in the skull. Dino followed with an Inverted Atomic Drop and then the Belly to Back Suplex for the Pin. 12:48

6. Hennig/Hall (Curt Hennig and Big Scott Hall) won by DQ over East-West Connection (Jesse “The Body” Ventura and Adrian Adonis). The East-West Connection seemed to have the advantage but couldn’t carry it through to the end. With Ventura in the ring Adrian used a Chain to smash Henning and cause a serous cut on his forhead. Curt was able to tag out but it seemed as though the match would be called. Big Scott Hall hooked in a Necklock on Jesse the Body to perform a hall Buster (Bulldog). Adrian Adonis swung the chain at Hall but was caught by Referee Stan Mayslack who called for a DQ. 19:24

7. AWA Heavyweight Title – Sgt. Slaughter (Champion) won by DQ over Stan Hansen (Challenger). This was a Pier Six brawl from the beginning with Hansen using every rough move in his arsenal while the Sarge was able to counter. The two veterans put on quite a show. Hansen was able to hook in a Neckbreaker Vice that was broken by Slaughter. Slaughter countered with a Gut Buster Smash and a Brainbuster. Hansen bailed from the ring and re-entered with a Cowbell that he tried to use on Slaughter. Stan missed and hit Referee Bobby Whitlock. Referee Stan Mayslack who was at ringside jumped in the ring and called for a DQ. 18:41

Little Angie’s & Grandma’s Saloon presents;
AWA Wrestling (1980’s)
Duluth Entertainment Center – Duluth, MN Att: 8,306




Commentators; Ken Resnick & Ron Throngard
Referees; Scrap Iron George Gadanski & Sockeye Jack McDonald
Ring; Benny Southstreet Interviews; Sue Ann Nivens

1. Killer Mike Moran won by Count-Out over Bulldog Gerry Morrow. Very little of this match was inside the ring and what was did not consist of legitimate moves. OOR the moves were vicious; Slam to the Steps, Headcrackers and Smash to the Post. Bulldog seemed to be gaining an advantage when he was blindsided with a Chairshot. Several fans were yelling that Psycho Rick Gantner was under a hood and swung the Chair. (Killer Moran and Psycho Gantner wrestle as the Tag Team Texas Hangmen) He was quick to disappear. Scrap Iron Gadanski was looking to see the OOR Action and held up the count. This gave Killer a chance to slip back in the ring. 6:52

2. Bad Company (Pat Tanaka and Paul Diamond) beat Duk/Wolfe (Kim Duk and Beautiful Buddy Wolfe). Duk and Wolfe kept Bad Company off kilter with a combination of power moves, Karate and Asian Chops. Duk and Wolfe are moving up the ranks as one of the most unusual teams that can get the job done. Unfortunately in this match Pat Tanaka sensing problems was able to find a wrench that he his in his fist and Punched Buddy Wolfe in the Throat. This was the chance that Bad Company needed. Paul Diamand doubleteamed with Tanaka for a Slingshot DDT on Wolfe. Kim Duk tried to stop the pin but was too late. 10:25

3. Rev. Tiny Hampton won by DQ over Nick Kiniski. Kiniski used his rough moves but was unable to gain a solid advantage. Tiny who weighs in at 275 lbs is not easy to push around the ring. Nick who likes to be in control got frustrated and bailed from the ring after Referee Scrap Iron Gadanski got smashed in a collision. Nick found a Tire Iron under the ring. He re-entered with the Iron and used it the smash Hampton in the leg. Tiny collapsed to the canvas. Referee Gadanski turned to see the Pin and counted. Referee Sockeye Jack McDonald who was at ringside jumped in the ring and told Gadanski what happened. Gadanski reversed the decision. Kiniski was livid. He threatened Gadanski who was more than willing to get it on with Kiniski. Sockeye McDonald also wanted some action. Nick Kiniski wisely left the ring mumbling. 4:06

4. Ox Baker; Heart Punch Pin over Psycho Rick Gantner. Ox obviously saw the opening match and was well aware that Killer Mike Moran was likely to show his face if he got a chance. Psycho, who later wrestled as Bull Pain, held his own for a time in the match. When things stared turning in Ox’s favor, Psycho bailed from the ring. Ox who also likes OOR Action followed him and the fun started. Killer came out and got into the brawl. Ox threw Killer off the ramp and into the pit below. Judging by the crashing noise, Killer wasn’t going to return in this match. Ox guided the match back to the ring. Psycho re-entered the ring with a Pail to use as a weapon. Ox got the Pail and put it over Psycho’s head. Ox whipped Psycho to the Ropes and then hit him with a Heart Punch. The match was over. Sockeye Jack McDonald allowed the pin to stand because as he told Ron Trongard; “It was a 2 on 1 brawl out of the ring and Psycho brought the Pail in the ring. It was fair.” 9:27

5. “Baby Bull” Leon White and Nord the Barbarian with Sheik Adnan El Kassie; Double Count-Out. Nord’s odd style and lack of legitimate moves is better suited to OOR Action and that is where the match went several times. Adnan who cannot resist the action but who want someone else to do the brawling called upon his newly appointed bodyguard Chris Markoff. Markoff greeted Leon with a Tray Smash over the head. This only seemed to anger the Baby Bull who was now holding his own against Nord and Markoff. The time ran out and both were Counted-Out. Sockey McDonald and Scrap Iron Gadanski ran down to break up the brawl. 11:09

6. The Destruction Crew (Mean Mike Enos and Wayne “The Train” Bloom) beat Regal-Garvin (Steve Regal and Gorgeous Jimmy Garvin) with Bodyguard Butch Reed. The Destruction Crew was being interviewed by Sue Ann Nivens before the match when Steve, Gorgeous Jimmy and Butch interrupted. The Destruction Crew was thrown of their game for the match and it resulted in a slow start. The match settled into a give and take with these evenly matched teams sharing advantages. Butch Reed tried to help. Garvin held Enos from the back and Reed used a Haymaker. Enos ducked and Garvin was set flying OOR. The Crew used a Doubleteam on Regal resulting in a Wrecking Ball; Enos; Electric Chair and Bloom; Diving Clothesline. Enos pinned Regal. Garvin was still the legal man and probably should have been Counted-Out. 17:13

7. Bobby Duncum with Bobby Heenan won by beat Manny “Bull” Fernandez. Manny was seriously injured before the match after Duncum attacked with a 2 x 4. Manny not only had a bad welt on his back but he was cut on the forehead and bleeding. Fernandez put up a great fight holding his own with move; Skullcrusher, Running Missile and Underhook DDT against the proud Duncum who loves to maim his opponents. After the match went OOR Blackjack Lanza joined the action and used a Trash Can adding insult to injury. Referee Gadanski sent Lanza back to the locker area. After re-entering the ring, Gadanski ruled that the match could not continue because of Too Much Blood. 13:45

Shady Rest Hotel & Drucker’s Store presents;
Mid-South/Memphis Wrestling (1980-82)
The Field Next to Goober’s Tire
Hooterville/Pixley Town Line Att: 312



Commentators; Joe Pedicino, Hank Kimball & Eb Dawson
Referees; Tommy Sloan & Bobby Managoff
Ring; Lisa Douglas with Arnold Ziffel
Interviews; Oliver Wendall Douglas
Timekeeper at the Bell; Mr. Haney

1. Randy Colley; Knee Drop to the Throat Pin over Jerry Barber. Colley who is disliked was able to gain some extra points with a roll on Cheat Modifier. During his entrance Randy argued with the fans and shook his fist in a threatening manner. Barber came close to a pin with a Roll-Up but Referee Tommy Sloan was out of view. Both wrestlers were bothered by the bell that was rung by mistake several times. Mr. Haney explained; I have to get use to this new job. By the way, how much do I get paid?” Colley used several rough moves to gain the advantage; Eye Gouges, Mouth Ripper and even a bite that went unnoticed. Colley got the Pin with his Jumping Knee Drop to the Throat. 6:14

2. Winona Little Heart won by DQ over Sherri Martel. Sherri started slowly while Winona used War Dance Chops to offset any of Martel’s moves. Sherri finally got frustrated and bailed from the ring. She was accusing Referee Bobby Managoff of slow counts although Winona had several pin attempts on Sherri so Bobby’s counting looked fair. In her anger Sherri tipped over the Press table, grabbed a Display Tire and threw it in the ring. Managoff called for the DQ. Sherri used a finger gesture to Managoff and Winona before departing. 8:07

3. Chief Thundercloud; Indian Deathlock Submission over Pretty Boy Carl Fergie. The Chief who is always the fan favorite was an exciting figure for the Hooterville crowd. The Chief was wearing a full headdress and he hoop and hollered as he came down the aisle. Fergie who is quiet but dangerous made a usual boring entrance after Ring Announcer Lisa Douglas introduced him as Petty Boy Ferg. Carl grabbed the microphone and yelled Pretty Boy. The crowd was booing him and a few cups were thrown. Ferie had a Foreign Object hidden in his fist and he used the Loaded Fist for a Smash to the Chief’s Stomach. It took Thundercloud a bit of time to recover allowing Fergie to used other moves in wearing the Chief down. Pretty Boy tried a Suicide Leap whick is unusual for him. It didn’t work so he crashed to the canvas. The Chief started a War Dance and then hooked in the Indian Death Lock. Fergie had to submit. 7:36

4. Jesse Barr with Jimmy Hart & Chick Donovan won by Count-Out over Ravishing Randy Rose. The match was fairly even until Barr caught Rose in a Headlock for a Bulldog. Rose was able to wiggle out and used a Swinging Neckbreaker on Jesse. Chick Donovan was able to break up the hold while Jimmy hart distracted Referee Bobby Managoff. Rose didn’t let up and followed with a Ravishing DDT. That was also broken up. Rose bailed from the ring to confront Jimmy and his VP of the family. After a pushing match, Rose stared to chase Jimmy. Chick pushed Rose who fell into some goodies that were being sold. Rose’s face was covered with Huckleberry Pie but he was fighting with Donovan as Managoff’s counted Pat out. Barr was still shaking off the DDT in the ring. 8:55

5. Steve Keirn won by DQ over Abdullah the Butcher with Jimmy Hart. Hart protested that Chick Donovan, his Vice President, was not allowed at the ring. Abdullah rolled on his Size Modifier. He added quite a number of points to give him the advantage. Steve on the other hand was given points after a woman flirted with him upon entrance. She even flashed he undies as he smiled. Steve was able to get Abdullah into trouble during this match using a Fling Missile and a Brain Buster. Jimmy Hart was able to break up a Pin attempt. Abdullah bailed from the ring and rounded up some Foreign Objects before re-entering; A Tire Iron and a Can of Motor Oil was enough for Referee Tommy Sloan. He called the DQ against Abdullah. As Abdullah was leaving he grabbed an Apple Pie. A woman was yelling; “That will be $ 3.75, Please!” Abdullah ignored her. 12:51

6. Rougeau/Taylor (Jacque and Terry) won by DQ over The Sheepherders (Butch Miller and Luke Williams) with Lord Jonathan Boyd. The Sheepherders had big smiles on their faces because action is what they enjoy. In fact they didn’t wait for the introductions. They attacked injuring both Jacque and Terry. Boyd was in the action swinging his Flag. It is a wonder that Referee Bobby Managoff didn’t call the match immediately. Managoff has had his hands full in this small show. Rougeau and Taylor tried some legitimate moves but were thrown off stride because the New Zealanders can only use rough, mainly illegitimate moves. Lord Jonathan Boyd tried to use a Whiskey Bottle to hit Terry Taylor. He hit Bobby Managoff by mistake. Referee Tommy Sloan at ringside jumped in the ring and called a DQ. He also said that Boyd would face a big fine. Goober Perkins who owns the Tire Mart and Gas Station came to the ring and told Tommy Sloan that a large window pane was broken in his Station along with several signs ripped from his building. It was the Sheepherders who were responsible. Gobber called the State Police who came down the aisle and arrested The Sheepherders along with Lord Jonathan Boyd. Luke and Butch were smiling as they were led away. 16:49

Moon Lake Casino – Glorious Hill, MS Att: 1,310



Commentators; Bonnie Blackstone & Frank Dusek
Referees; Jerry Calhoun & Red Kirkpatrick
Ring; Mary Ann Summers Interviews; Prof. Roy Hinkley
Timekeeper at the Bell; Capt. Jonas Grumby, “The Skipper”

1. Dr. Bill Irwin; Anesthesia (DDT) Pin over Don Anderson. The Dr., who is gaining a reputation as a vicious heel, was greeted with boos and yells of “quack”. It didn’t seem to bother Irwin who was dressed in his usual Doctor’s coat and had a Statoscope hung around his neck. Irwin used his standard array of moves; Kick to the Stomach, Vicious Mouth Ripper & Eye Rakes. During a distraction he was also able to choke out Anderson with the Statoscope that he refers to as “Nurse Jane.” Anderson was gasping for air when Dr. Irwin hit him with Anesthesia (DDT). 4:36

2. Norvell Austin and Koko B. Ware; Double Count-Out. This match was decided on the Unusual Result Chart. As expected the wrestlers were equal and each was able to show their best moves. Both were also able to kick out of what seemed to be certain pins. Both got worn down after failed attempted Moonsaults so they eventually bailed from the ring. Austin was able to catch Koko with a Chairshot that5 grazed Ware. He grabbed the chair and chased Norvell into the Food Court. Austin started throwing food and this became an Animal House Food Fight. Of Corse the match was long over with both wrestlers counted out. 8:55

3. Peggy Lee Pringle and Candi Malloy; Double Count-Out. Pringle, who is a Rough and Tumble Wrestler, didn’t warm to the audience who knew her only too well. She tore up a program and screamed at a few fans. Peggy, who is the sister to Percy, loves to overwhelm opponents with Boots to the Mid-Section and then actually walking on them. Candi countered with whips to the Ropes then Chops and Slaps to the Neck and face. The action went OOR where Peggy used a Trash Can Lid to Smash Candi in the head. The action went up the ramp where Peggy used a Choke Slam on Malloy. Before Peggy could get back to the ring Joyce Grable got up from her seat in the 6th row and said something to Peggy. A Brawl broke out. Both wrestlers were counted out. (Joyce was reacting to a match about two months ago when Peggy Lee and Penny Mitchell attacked Joyce after a match and put her on the disabled list. Jerry Calhoun was the Referee who didn’t see the attck backstage but he knew about it. He chose to call a Double Count-Out tonight and not a DQ because of Joyce’s interference. (Note – Peggy Lee Pringle also fought under the name Peggy Lee Leather.) 8:16

4. The Angel (Frank Morrell); Brain Claw Submission over Sexy Ron Sexton. Sexy Ron put on a show as he came down the aisle. He was trying to appeal to the women but they didn’t seem to care. It didn’t matter because he was going to keep trying. His opponent, The Angel, is a No Nonsense “Take No Prisoners” style wrestler. Sexton showing his agility used a Flying Missile to try and down The Angel. The momentum carried Sexton through the ropes as he crashed to the floor. The Angel took advantage OOR by slamming Ron’s head to the Steel Steps. Back in the ring The Angel used a Powerslam and then hooked in the Brain Claw. Referee Red Kirkpatrick called the match. 6:21

5. Roy Rogers won by DQ over Nature Boy Roger Kirby. In spite of being seriously cut by a Sharp Object that Kirby used, Roy was able to somewhat gain an advantage with a Flying Elbow and a Headrammer to the Corner Post. Kirby bailed from the ring and shoved a Folded Steel Chair under the Ropes and into the ring. Referee Jerry Calhoun was shaking off a collision that happened earlier. Kirby tried to cut Rogers again and as Roy moved to avoid the Sharp Object Kirby lifted him for a Piledriver on the Folded Chair. Referee Jerry Calhoun called the match for Too Much Blood. Kirby protested as he put Rogers down. Then Roger dropped the Sharp Object. Calhoun immediately reversed his decision and called the match a DQ in Roy’s favor. (note – Roy also wrestles under the name Johnny Rich). 14:56

6. Dirty Don Fargo with Peggy Lee Pringle pinned Austin Idol with Sherri Martel. Idol was in charge during the match. Dirty Don used rough moves that were offset with a very classy style. The action went OOR and this is where Dirty Don is in his element. Adding to the woes for Idol OOR were a few vendors who decided to get in the action; Dr. Bill Irwin and Nature Boy Roger Kirby. Sherri Martel was brawling with Peggy Lee. The match should have been stopped with DQ against Dirty Don but it went on. Austin Idol was eventually hit over the head with a Steel Chair then pushed into the ring. Fargo got the pin. 17:09

Hi Frank, very glad you have added so much to the Ultra Quick Wrestling family of games and sets. I believe I mentioned this once before but I thought I ask again.....

Any chance of doing a set of East Tennessee Wrestlers from 1960-1975, which included the Mickey Baarnes and John Cazanna promotions? Very interested in seeing Ron and Don Wright, Whitey Caldwell, Les Thatcher, Sam Bass Jim White/Jerry Lawler, Steve Kovacs and all the wrestlers that graced the Knoxville/Kingsport Tenn. areas? An interview card with Big Jim Hess (He and Ron were fabulous in their microphone battles).

I recently purchased a couple new sets with the early wrestlers, Mid Atlaqntic and Georgia areas. Again compliments to you for giving so much color to a very compact yet entertaining game.

Edward R. Meek

Hairless Joe and Lonesome Polecat’s Kick-A-Poo Joy Juice presents;
Real Wrasslin (Memphis 1980-82) on WDPC-TV Chan. Tree
Jubilation T. Cornpone Hall – Dogpatch Att: 346



Commentators; Boyd Pierce and Farmer Don Martin with Turnbuckle Pig
Referees; Billy Hines and T.D. Steele
Ring; Gloria Van Welbilt Interviews; Moonbeam McSwine
Timekeepers at the Bell; Earthquake and Typhoon McGoon

Gloria Van Welbilt speaks; “You are not allowed to have jugs of Hairless Joe and Lonesome Polecat’s Kick-A Poo Joy Juice on these premises. During last month’s Wrasslin event some Joy Juice was spilled and splashed. It melted the Guard Rail and some of the Steel Steps.” “Also any cheering for the heels will not be counted against their total because Earthquake and Typhoon McGoon cheer for all the Heels and boo all the faces.”

1. Rick McCord won by DQ over Jim “Claw “ Mitchell. The match went OOR during the opening minute and though Mitchell likes OOR as an advantage he was thrown into the TV Equipment and came close to be counted out. A distraction by the bell being rung had Referee Billy Hines re-starting the count allowing Mitchell to return to the ring. Mitchell kept an eye on a Steel Chair OOR and at the right moment grabbed it. He pushed Referee Billy Hines aside and slammed it over McCord’s head. Hines called for the DQ while Earthquake and Typhoon were on their feet cheering at the Chairshot. 5:56

2. Bobby Fulton; Senton Bomb Pin over Ed “Dizzy” Hogan. Bobby heard the cheers from the fans and the loud booing from The McGoon’s. The women of Dogpatch were especially interested in getting autograph pictures so Bobby took extra time for signings and hugs. During the match Dizzy was able to use a few Eye Rakes to his advantage but was unable to have successful follow ups. Bobby hit Dizzy with a Flying Missile and then his crowd pleasing Senton Bomb for the Pin. 5:06

3. Dizzy Bill Smithson won by Count-Out over The Enforcer. Smithson, who has changed his look a bit by wearing cutoff jeans, used his usual moves; bite arms and legs and kicks to the groin to ganin an advantage. Bill had to scramble to reach the ropes after the Enforcer caught him with a Clawhold. The Enforcer who remains unidentified claims that he learned the Clawhold from the legendary Spoiler. Smithson took the best way out after by bailing from the ring. The OOR action was even until Smithson hit The Enforcer with what looked like a Large Dog Bone. The Enforcer was dazed and unable to find his way back to the ring. 9:52

4. The Assassins (Cuban and Iranian) with Jimmy Hart beat The Green Machine (David Oswald and Vinnie Romero). The Assassins gained points after chasing ring announcer Gloria Van Welbilt from the ring. The McGoon’s loved this moved and gave the Assassins a big Skunk Hollow Cheer. The Green Machine who were making their debut had some impressive tag teaming but could not overcome the power of The Assassins. Jimmy Hart didn’t help matters after tripping Romero into a Backbreaker that Oswald was able to break up. The Iranian was in trouble in the ring when Romero used a Top Rope Dropkick and Oswald folled with a Flying Body Press. The Iranian caught Oswald and turned the move into a Running Power Slam. The Cuban Assassin tagged in and finished the match with a Guillotine Leg Drop for the Pin. 11:46

5. Bugsy McGraw; Running Splash Pin over The Hollywood Hippie. Bugsy who is now a fan favorite is the exception for the McGoon’s. Bugsy’s style was up to their heel standards and McGraw still resorts to some underhanded moves. The Hippie resorted to his best way of winning; Holding the Tights and Using the Ropes for Leverage but the fans were yelling that Hippie was cheating. Referee Billy Hines reacted and stopped any pin attempts. After the action went OOR Bugsy used the Guard Rails for a Choke then Slammed Hippie into the Steel Steps. Back in the Ring Bugsy used a Grinding Face Claw, Threw Hippie into the Corner and hit him with a Loaded Fist (Belt Buckle). The Running Splash got the Pin. 9:32

6. Stan “Plowboy” Frazier won by DQ over Crusher Broomfield with Jimmy Hart. Broomfield offered a handshake to Plowboy with the fans yelling; “No – No – No.” Plowboy took their advice and hit Crusher with a Forearm to the Chops. Crusher was a5t a disadvantage in points and Frazier added to his woes with a Rib Crusher and a Legdrop. After bailing from the ring Crusher re-entered with a Chain. He was warned and warned again. Referee T.D. Steele had enough and called for the DQ. The McGoon’s hated the decision and refused to ring the bell. Famer Don Martin with Turnbuckle the Pig at the Commentators table walked over and rang the bell. 10:58
