I was a huge Stan Hansen fan, ever since he tagged with Ole Anderson at a house show in Saginaw, Michigan around 1982-93 (since I was a new driver and this was a big trip for me!). Old school wrestling might have had pre-planned endings, but The Bad Man from Borger sure seemed credible for that nickname! Yet, if I remember correctly, the Japanese fans loved him, so a face turn makes sense.

Hansen would have the size to do well with Andre. Looking forward to your results!


Thanks for the encouragement! Looking at Hansen, it is hard to see his shtick working anywhere but in the US, or at least North America. But he was huge in Japan.

Match Day 9
Civic Center Arena, St. Paul, MN
Finals of the World Heavyweight Championship Tournament + 3 preliminary matches

"Resolution?"

Kerry Von Erich v Superstar Billy Graham: An even match until the end, when Superstar dominated and got the pin after a power bodyslam followed by the use of an unseen foreign object. 11 min 45 secs

The Crusher v Iron Sheik: pre-match-Andre the Giant looks on and distracts Iron Sheik (but shouldn't he be preparing and resting before his match?!?!). The Crusher had 7 pin/sub attempts to the Iron Sheik's 3. The Crusher gets the pin after a DDT followed by a press slam. BUT post-match, the Commissioner Percy Buttons reverses the result, ruling that Crusher had conceded when the Iron Sheik applied the Camel Clutch late in the match. 13 min 33 sec

Hulk Hogan v Larry Zbyszko (w/Manager Paul Dangerously): Zbyszko dominated the match. His manager distracted the referee late in the match, allowing, you guessed it, The Sheik, to enter the ring and doubleteam Hogan. Zbyszko then finished him off with a shoulder breaker and pin. 9 min 15 sec

THE MAIN EVENT: THE TITLE BOUT: # 3 Andre the Giant (w/ Manager Bobby Heenan) v # 4 Stan Hansen: the final of the World Heavyweight Championship Tournament. Before any wrestling move is made, Andre asks the referee to keep an eye on Hansen, who has a history of dirty tactics. Hansen takes umbrage and pushes Andre into the referee. The referee DQ's Andre! Stan Hansen is the inaugural RWF World Heavyweight Champion! 33 secs

I'm not sure the fans got their money's worth in that Main Event. :)

I sense a rematch down the road, although between the Sheik and Commissioner Buttons, does a good, clean, mom-and-apple pie scientific wrestler stand much of a chance???

I agree! I just followed what the dice and chart said, modifying it a bit to make a little more sense. I like your tractor pull Dave P!

So here is what is coming up over the next two weeks: (1) introducing some new wrestlers to the Federation; (2) establishing the # 1 contender (or confirming Andre is the # 1 contender) to the World Heavyweight Championship and setting up that match; and (3) building up to a title bout for the United States Championship (the # 2 most prestigious singles title in the RWF!).

Match Day 10
Uptown Theater, Chicago, IL

Jack Brisco v Abdullah the Butcher w/ Manager Paul Ellering: Dick the Bruiser performed a knee drop on Abdullah from the top of the gate guarding the ramp. Abdullah can't make it to the ring and is counted out. Brisco wins

Junkyard Dog v Sgt Slaughter w/ Manager Alfred Hayes: Slaughter started off strong, initiating a series of punishing moves (3 back body drops) on JYD, exhausting JYD early. But the Dog battled back and at the end performed The Thump 2x on the staggered Slaughter, getting the 3 count on the 2d Thump. 11 min 12 secs

Jumbo Tsuruta v Mr. Saito: Tsuruta seemed to be in control for most of this marathon match. He had 9 pin/sub attempts to Saito's 3. But Saito refused to cede and near the end used a chair, a foreign object and a German suplex to exhaust Tsuruta. A karate kick finished Tsuruta off. 18 min 39 secs. Post-match, a jubliant Saito pummeled Tsuruta until the locker room emptied to stop the beating.

Billy Robinson v The Sheik: a back and forth match at the beginning but controlled the rest of the way by Robinson, who had 6 pin/sub attempts to 1 for the Sheik. A shoulderbreaker allowed Robinson to get the pin. 15 min 50 secs. Commissioner Buttons tried to reverse the result but was convinced otherwise by Verne Gagne, who bodyslammed him!

Bobo Brazil v Leon White: a quick match dominated by Bobo, who got the submission on a reverse chin lock. 6 min 30 secs

Otto Wanz v Don Muraco: pre-match staredown but neither wrestler backs down in this highly anticipated match. Wanz seemed to dominate, but most of the his moves were 1 pointers while Muraco delivered fewer but more damaging holds. Wanz delivered a Big Otto Corner Splash at the 12 min mark and got his first and only pin attempt but Muraco kicked out. Soon after, the Magnificent One executed a piledriver follwed by a lethal Asian Spike and got the pin. 13 min 42 secs. Post-match, Muraco announced the hiring of Saul Creatchman, who he believes will help him win the US Championship.

Match Day 11
Kiel Auditorium, St. Louis, MO
Referee Ralph Hamilton

Dusty Rhodes v Ken Patera w/ Manager Bobby Heenan: a marathon match mostly controlled by Dusty, but he had some scares, including 3 early pin attempts by Patera. The strongman withstood 6 Dusty pin/sub attempts, including 2 figure 4 leglocks. Heenan was able to slip a foreign object to his client, but a minute later distracted Patera to his detriment. From there onward Dusty dominated, finally getting the 3 count after a well-executed bionic elbow. 17 mins

Sailor Art Thomas v Paul Orndorf w/ Manager Bobby Heenan: the Navy man racked up the points but only tallied 1 pin/sub attempt (a Bear Hug after Heenan yet again distracted his own client). Orndorf was able to capitalize on the use of an unseen foreign object then delivered a devastating piledriver and got the pin. 7 min 30 secs

Verne Gagne v Mongolian Stomper: Zbyszko and Hennig attacked Gagne pre-match, tiring him out before the match even began (-10 END). Gagne recovered and dominated the match, except when the Stomper delivered a Mongolian Stomp and DDT. Gagne was able to kick out of both subsequent pin attempts then got the pin himself after a release German suplex. 8 min 12 secs. Awesome recovery from Gagne!

Tony Atlas v Nick Bockwinkle: Mr. USA had his chances early on with a Bear Hug then one of his finishers, the press slam. But he could neither get the pin nor the submission from Bockwinkle. The heel executed the final 7 maneuvers of the match, including the winning piledriver. 7 min 12 secs

Jerry Lawler v Gene Kiniski: Wahoo McDaniel grabbed the microphone from Kiniski pre-match and taunted his upcoming opponent Larry Zbyszko. Kiniski seemed to be in control of the match, but then lost it in the 7th minute when he grabbed a ringside steel chair and bashed both Lawler and referee Ralph Hamilton, who immediately DQ'd him. 6 min 12 secs

Dick the Bruiser v King Kong Bundy with Manager Bobby Heenan: Heenan tried to interfere but was caught and his client DQ'd by the quick trigger Hamilton. 1 min 3 secs

Face Turn: Andre the Giant announced the firing of Heenan. He said he had been questioning the usage of illegal tactics and was convinced tonight that Heenan was more trouble than he was worth. Heenan was furious and vowed to destroy the Giant. Andre shoved his huge paw into Heenan's face, and Heenan scurried away as the crowd roared.

Match Day 12
Century II Convention Hall, Wichita, KS
Referee = Tom Hamilton

"Oh, Andre"

Commissioner Buttons puts the pressure on Andre the Giant by announcing that he will get a title shot against World Heavyweight Champion Stan Hansen IF he defeats Harley Race tonight!

Bob Backlund v Jesse Ventura: after Backlund threw Ventura out of the ring, a group of masked men appeared and pummeled both wrestlers. Doube countout. 1 min 30 secs

Bruno Sammartino v Adrian Adonis w/ Manager Bobby Heenan: Bruno executed a DDT, a 2 pt body slam and his finishing back breaker in 3 consecutive moves, getting the 3 count for the pin. 6 min 6 secs

Tommy Rich v Mad Dog Vachon: Mad Dog got upset at the comments from announcer pre-match and was more pumped up than usual. Excellent match! Vachon had a quick roll-up and Boston Crab early but couldn't get the pin or sub. Rich executed 2 piledrivers and got the pin after the 2d. 10 min 48 secs. After the match, a cocky Rich announced that he was cutting everyone out of his life and focusing solely on the US Championship.

Tito Santana v Curt Hennig w/ Manager Bobby Heenan: Tito executed a Flying Slingshot early but Hennig wouldn't be pinned and responded with a Gut Wrench Suplex, an elbow smash to the head and then a sunset flip for the pin. 2 min 36 secs

Jimmy Snuka v Superstar Billy Graham: Superstar dominated Superfly, finishing him off at 7 min 10 secs with his 3d Bear Hug.

Andre the Giant v Harley Race: Oh Andre, why can't you keep your cool? The grapplers took the action outside the ring and into various corner of the arena. DQ's for both. 2 min 33 secs

Match Day 13
Dallas Memorial Auditorium, Dallas, TX
Referee = Dick Wohrle

"Bruised Ego"

Ricky Steamboat v Iron Sheik: both wrestlers brawled into the crowd, double count-out. 40 secs

Wahoo McDaniel v Larry Zbyszko w/ Manager Paul Dangerously: short but excellent match! It was all Zbyszko at the beginning (flying kneedrop, abdominal stretch, foreign object) then all Wahoo (Tomahawk Chops, piledriver). Zbyszko used both of his finishers, the Shoulder Breaker and another Abdominal Stretch but couldn't get the pin or sub. Wahoo executed another piledriver, then got the pin after a second series of Tomahawk Chops. 8 min 21 secs

Billy Robinson v Buddy Rose: Robinson tired Rose out quickly with a German suplex, a chair smash, and an abdominal stretch. The Playboy responded with a chair smash of his own, Bomb's Away, bodyslam and stalling suplex. Robinson then applied consecutive finishers (Double-Arm Suplexes) followed by a piledriver, getting the 3 count after the latter. 6 min 9 secs

Bobo Brazil v John Studd with Manager Bobby Heenan: Studd tried to use pepper spray on Bobo pre-match but Bobo turned the spray on Studd. Brazil then dominated the match, forcing a submission from a Boston Crab. 3 min 45 secs

Junkyard Dog v Roddy Piper: Pre-match, Piper introduced Ted Dibiase to the RWF. King Kong Brody introduced himself,entering the ring at the end of the 3d minute and pummeling Piper. JYD was DQ'd. 3 min 6 secs

Dick the Bruiser v Abdullah the Butcher with Manager Paul Ellering: fans of the RWF will remember what happened in Match Day 10 when Dick the Bruiser accosted Abdullah on his way to the ring with a knee drop from the top of the gate guarding the ramp. Here, Abdullah made it to the ring, but it didn't look much better for him. The match lasted 5 min 39 secs and the Butcher did not execute one move! It was all Bruiser. Unfortunately, he got his 1st DQ pt after biting the Butcher's forehead, his 2d after an eye gauge, and his 3d, and a DQ from the match, after a top rope kneedrop.

Postscript: it wasn't announced, but the talk in the locker room was that, with his DQ tonight, Dick the Bruiser blew a chance to wrestle Stan Hansen for the World Heavyweight Championship. Next up for the title shot now that Andre and Dick are out? Verne? Dusty?

Match Day 14
Austin Municipal Auditorium, Austin, TX
Referee = Jack Pesek

"Contention"

Jerry Lawler v Terry Funk: pre-match assault on Lawler by Ted Dibiase. Lawler was tired to start the match, but managed to inflict a 2d Rope Fist Drop finisher to both start and end (with a pin) the match . 33 secs

Tony Atlas v Don Muraco w/ Manager Saul Creatchman: more security issues in Austin as the Iron Sheik attacked Atlas on the ramp, tripping him and applying the Camel Clutch! Atlas can't make it to the ring and is counted out.

Jack Brisco v Paul Orndorff w/ Manager Bobby Heenan: Just after the opening bell, Leon White appeared and distracted referee Jack Pesek allowing Orndorff to use a foreign object undetected on Brisco, wearing him out. Orndorff controlled the match and pinned Brisco at 5 min after a finishing Power Slam.

King Kong Brody v Ted Dibiase: Brody mistakenly offered a handshake pre-match and Dibiase responded with a piledriver! Brody was on his way to battling back when Dibiase began pummeling him with a steal chair, stopping only after the locker room cleared. Dibiase DQ'd. 3 min 39 secs

Verne Gagne v Curt Hennig: a grudge match (on MD 11 Hennig and Zbyszko attacked Gagne before his match against the Mongolian Stomper). Excellent match! Gagne was up on points all match but Hennig had plenty of chances (3 quick roll-ups and a Boston Crab). Gagne got the pin after executing his finishing Flying Dropkick. 10 min 40 secs. Is Zbyszko next for Gagne?

Dusty Rhodes v Nick Bockwinkle: Bockwinkle attempted to use a foreign object on Rhodes pre-match, but Dusty grabbed the object and used it himself. Bockwinkle wrestled well and had pin attempts after a Bridging German Suplex and piledriver, but couldn't pin Rhodes. The American Dream got the pin after his second Bionic Elbow. 8 min 48 secs

Match Day 15
University Arena, Univ. of New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM
Referee = Larry Lisowski

Kerry Von Erich v Mr. Saito: On Match Day 1, Von Erich applied his Iron Claw on Saito while Saito was on his way to his match with Dusty Rhodes. Saito was counted out. Out for revenge, Mr. Saito was utterly dominated by Von Erich, submitting on a Full Nelson at 3 min 3 secs

Bruno Sammartino v Mongolian Stomper: Bruno seemed to be in control but The Stomper used 3 illegal moves (2 of which he was given DQ pts for) to pull ahead. Bruno responded with a Bear Hug and Stomper submitted, delighting the crowd. 6 mins

The Crusher v Ken Patera w/ Manager Bobby Heenan: The Crusher was absolutely dominating the Olympian when, just as in the Match 12 bout between Ventura and Backlund, a group of masked men entered the ring and pummeled both wrestlers, resulting in a double count-out at 9 min 31 secs. Who are these masked men?

Sailor Art Thomas v King Kong Bundy w/ Manager Bobby Heenan: Sailor Art caught Bundy in a Bear Hug on the first move of the match, after Heenan inadvertently distracted his client. Although Bundy reached the ropes, he couldn't get out of Sailor Art's subsequent quick pin move with a fist full of tights (must have been quite a fistful considering Bundy's size!). 1 min 9 secs

Hulk Hogan v Ric Flair w/ Manager Bobby Heenan: the crowd went crazy pre-match when the in-house Jumbotron showed mega-star Larry Hagman ringside, jawing at Flair. The match was even until Hogan grabbed and used the brass knuckles thrown in the ring by you-know-who (Heenan, in case you didn't). Hogan's subsequent Thunder Slam exhausted Flair and he was able to pin Flair a few minutes later after a Scoop Slam. 8 min 15 secs

Andre the Giant v Mad Dog Vachon: Mad Dog was in control early when they took the action outside the squared circle. Then tragedy struck as both wrestlers fell from the entrance ramp. Double count-out at 2 min 10 secs

Chief Medical Officer Dr. Brenda Buttons announced that both Andre and Vachon would be out of commission for THREE MONTHS! She certainly has had her hands full. Reports from backstage suggest that Commissioner Percy Buttons had his hands full of the voluptuous Brenda. Better than cardboard, said this pundit!

Match Day 16
Hollywood Palladium
Hollywood, CA
Referee = Tom "Rocky" Stone

"Showtime in Hollywood," possibly the BEST Match Day yet!

Tommy Rich v Adrian Adonis w/ Manager Bobby Heenan: a match dominated by Rich but made interesting about halfway through when Heenan jumped into the ring and distracted the ref, allowing Adonis to choke Rich (-7 END!!!). After 2 straight Atomic Drops though, Rich got the pin. 12 mins 12 secs. After his last match Rich announced that he was focused on himself and the US Championship. Here, he celebrated by beating Adonis with a shoe horn. Rich turned heel!!!

Wahoo McDaniel v Gene Kiniski: you'll remember back on Match Day 11 when Wahoo grabbed the mic from Gene before the latter's match and promoted his own upcoming match. Kiniski wrestled like a man with a grudge, allowing McDaniel only 1 move all match. Kiniski got the pin after a Bridging German Suplex at 6 min 9 secs

Bob Backlund v Harley Race: Backlund started off strong, tiring Race out before Race had even executed a hold. But Race then took over and controlled the rest of the match, getting the 3 count after a finishing Piledriver at 12 min

Rick Martel v Jesse Ventura: a great, marathon, back and forth match, where each grappler had 5 pin/sub attempts. The Body had 3 straight during the middle of the match when he applied a Bearhug, an Inverted Body Vice, and hit Martel with a steel chair. Martel responded with a Back Drop that almost resulted in a pin. Soon after, the action left the ring for what appeared to be a long time, but Rocky Stone demonstrated a casual attitude towards the 20 second out of the ring time limit. Finally, a Suplex from Martel resulted in a pin at 15 min 55 secs. Along with Rich, Martel may be positioning himself for a shot at the US Championship.

Otto Wanz v Superstar Billy Graham w/ Manager Adnan Al Kaissey: the match was even until the 6th minute when Al Kaissey threw a fireball at Wanz, allowing Superstar to apply his Bearhug. Although he didn't get the submission there, Superstar dominated the rest of the way (Wanz had to be leery about turning his back to Al Kaissey!) and forced a clearly shaken Wanz to submit with a Side Headlock at 8 min 15 secs

WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP: Challenger Dusty Rhodes v Champion Stan Hansen: it was going to be tough to live it up to the high standard set by the rest of the matches this evening, but this match managed to do it! Rhodes started strong, tiring out the Champ early. Hansen got back into it with a DDT and eye gauge (earning his 1st DQ pt). Hansen hit Rhodes TWICE with his branding iron but Rocky Stone remained clueless. The match almost ended after the challenger hit Hansen with an awesome Bionic Elbow but Hansen kicked out. Hansen responded by biting Dusty's fragile forehead (yes, it started bleeding), earning his 2nd DQ pt. 2 Running Bulldogs gave Rhodes 2 more pin attempts but he couldn't keep Hansen's shoulders down. The climax occurred when Hansen used a foreign object on Rhodes, unseen by Stone, and a quick count at 11 min 48 secs allowed Hansen to retain the World Heavyweight Championship. AWESOME MATCH! When he got the pin, Hansen trailed Rhodes in ENDURANCE -19 to -8, so you can see why Dusty felt like he deserved to win.

(1) Commissioner Percy Buttons revealed that tag team matches will be added to the roster, beginning on Match Day 17;

(2) The Road Warriors with Manager Paul Ellering came out for their first promo carrying what appeared to be the masks worn by the mysterious gang that assaulted JYD and Roddy Piper on Match Day 13 and The Crusher and Ken Patera on Match Day 15. The tag team did not comment on the masks but apparently they are the assailants. Paul Ellering announced their plan to reign over the tag team division of the RWF.

(3) The RWF announced the cards for the next three Match Days. Highlights include:

(a) Match Day 17 will feature a rematch of Ricky Steamboat v Iron Sheik (both wrestlers were counted out on MD 13 after immediately going into the crowd after the bell and brawling), Heavyweight Championship contender Verne Gagne v Don Muraco, a US Championship hopeful, and the aforementioned Road Warriors v the Blackjacks in the inaugural RWF tag team battle;

(b) Match Day 18 has an unbelievable lineup, including a battle of US Championship contenders in Paul Orndorff v Rick Martel, and not one but TWO matches featuring World Heavyweight Championship contenders in Billy Robinson v Superstar Billy Graham and Dick the Bruiser v Nick Bockwinkle. Oh, and some tag team calling themselves the Fabulous Freebirds will face the Original Midnight Express; and

(c) Finally, Match Day 19 sees Jerry Lawler try to avenge the pre-match attack Ted Dibiase inflicted on him on MD 14, US Championship hopefuls Kerry Von Erich v Tommy Rich, and the British Bulldogs v the East-West Connection.

(4) Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair, in conjunction with the RWF, announced their plan to take a leave of absence. They will be touring Japan in support of the RWF and, perhaps more importantly (it is) training with some of the top wrestling teachers in the world to perfect their craft. The Federation wishes them luck and are confident they will return better than ever (and will be their AWESOME Original Game Tribute selves rather than the lesser AWA versions we have seen thus far. And I do mean awesome-every stat is better including most importantly Control which goes from 0 for both to +2, which is HUGE).

That is it from me. Keep on Wrestlin'!

Match Day 17
San Jose Civic Auditorium, San Jose, CA
Referee = Bruno Lauer

Ricky Steamboat v Iron Sheik: The Iron Sheik and Curt Hennig intimidated the referee pre-match (adding +5 to Iron Sheik's END). Steamboat dominated the match, getting 10 Pin/Sub attempts to Iron Sheik's 0. The Iranian battled hard, almost getting to the 20 minute time limit. Steamboat got the pin at 18 min 33 secs after a Flying Body Press.

Bobo Brazil v Sgt. Slaughter w/ Manager Alfred Hayes: Bobo Brazil got the pin at 12 min after a Body Slam. But the big news here was that Sgt. Slaughter injured his knee from a chair shot. Dr. Brenda Buttons revealed post-match that Slaughter would be out for 6 weeks.

Pedro Morales v Buddy Rose: a quick match controlled by Morales, who got the pin with a Small Package at 5 min 6 sec

Jumbo Tsuruta v Gene Kiniski: Hold by hold Gene executed a Release Suplex followed by a Sleeper, and Tsuruta submitted. 1 mins 3 secs

Verne Gagne v Don Muraco w/ Manager Saul Creatchman: Bruno Lauer was inadvertently injured during a whip into the ropes and was replaced as referee by Tim Fuller. A very technical match controlled by Gagne, who got the pin after a Rebound Cross-Body Block at 11 min 05 secs. Gagne has to be in contention for a title shot against Stan Hansen.

The Road Warriors w/ Manager Paul Ellering v the Blackjacks w/ Manager Bobby Heenan: the match lasted 23 min 51 secs but referee Tim Fuller only made it to 18:30 before being knocked out and replaced by Brad Robinson. This marathon match was highlighted by the Road Warriors' double team moves, a Power Slam by Animal followed by a Body Splash by Hawk, and a Backbreaker by Animal followed by a Flying Forearm from his partner. After the latter, they finished the Blackjacks off with the Doomsday Device. As if the Blackjacks didn't suffer enough, the victors celebrated by giving them a beatdown post-match.

Match Day 18
Paramount Theatre
Portland, OR
Referee = Tom Foley

Rick Martel v Paul Orndorff w/ Manager Bobby Heenan: Martel dominated the match with 8 pin/sub attempts to Orndorff's 2. Martel executed a Monkey Flip and got the pin at 15 min 31 secs (when he was ahead -7 to -22 in END).

King Kong Brody v Roddy Piper: On MD 13 the uncontrollable Brody disrupted Piper's match against JYD by entering the ring and pummeling the Scotsman. Here, Brody again made quick work out of the Rowdy One and got the pin at 4 min 6 secs after a Stalling Piledriver.

Sailor Art Thomas v John Studd with Manager Bobby Heenan: excellent back and forth match with 8 pin/sub attempts total (5 for Sailor Art). Studd came oh so close to an early pin but Thomas got his leg on the rope at the last second. Sailor Art finished the match with consecutive Bear Hugs and Studd submitted at 13 min 57 secs.

Billy Robinson v Superstar Billy Graham w/ Manager Adnan Al Kaissey: Robinson took care of Al Kaissey early on, KO'ing him ringside, where he remained unconscious for the rest of the match. Even match, with both wrestlers attempting early pins. But Superstar took the match when he followed up a Powerbomb with his finishing Bearhug, and got Robinson to submit at 7 min 58 secs.

Dick the Bruiser v Nick Bockwinkle: a couple of top contenders, at least according to the last rankings, this was expected to be a great match. Instead, Bockwinkle dominated, taking the fight to Bruiser from the get go and not letting up. The Bruiser executed a total of 2 moves, a Sleeper, which Bockwinkle broke out of, and a toss out of the ring. Bockwinkle executed 2 Piledrivers, 2 Sleepers, and finally got the pin after a Flying Shoulder Smash, putting Dick out of his misery at 6 min 40 secs.

The Fabulous Freebirds w/ Valet Precious v The Original Midnight Express: What was expected to be a coming out party for the Freebirds turned into a monumental battle. Dick the Bruiser was still hanging around ringside when the Freebirds entered the ropes. He grabbed Michael Hayes, dragged him down, and administered a beating before the match even began. Hope that felt good, Dick, because it didn't for Hayes, who began the match at a disadvantage (-4 END). An excellent match, with each side getting 5 pin/sub attempts. All 4 wrestlers were exhausted when Dennis Condrey put the Sleeper on Terry Gordy and knocked him out. 24 min 36 secs. What a win for the Original Midnight Express!
