Match Day 117
Autzen Stadium
Eugene, OR
Referee = Jack Pesek

Junkyard Dog v Gene Kiniski: Kiniski increased his heat and END by going off on the ring announcer pre-match. After 10 minutes, the match was even at -6 END, but JYD had 5 pin/sub attempts, all unsuccessful. Gene would proceed to kick out of 2 more pin attempts, after consecutive Irish Whips into Corner. Kiniski got his 1st pin attempt after a Canadian Press (kick out) then executed a finishing Backbreaker and got the 3-count from Pesek. Big win for Kiniski! 15 min 13 secs

Tommy Rich v Mr. Saito: Saito did manage a Superplex, but that did little to counter the Stalling Suplex, Running Clothesline and pair of Release German Suplexes of Tommy Rich. Wildfire got the pin after a finishing Flying Fist Drop at 5 min 33 secs.

Andre the Giant v Ken Patera w/ manager Bobby Heenan: as much of a Squash match as it gets in the RWF but you have to hand it to the strongman, who withstood not 1, not 2 but 3 Sitting Splashes from the Giant, and lasted 15 min 13 secs before succumbing to a Body Slam and pin. The most interesting moment came in the middle of the match when Patera attempted to Superplex Andre. Now Patera is very strong, but what was he thinking here? Andre reversed it and slammed Pateria face first into the mat.

Tito Santana & Pedro Morales v The Blackjacks w/ manager Bobby Heenan: the Blackjacks looked to get revenge on their opponents, who performed finishing maneuvers on the heels on the entrance ramp on MD 107, causing them to be counted out pre-match. Blackjack Mulligan grabbed the mic pre-match and insulted the crowd, saying he “ain’t seen one man here in Eugene that would be fair to fight.” The Blackjacks executed a Double Lariat early on. Morales slammed Blackjack Lanza on the concrete outside the ring. Heenan distracted the referee, allowing the Blackjacks to doubleteam Morales. Mulligan Clotheslined Santana outside the ring then Morales interfered and hit a Hip Toss on Mulligan. Morales tagged in and performed 7 of the final 8 moves, pinning Mulligan after a Cannon Ball. 14 min 9 secs

Jerry Lawler v Stan Hansen: Lawler has been either in or on the border of the top 10 most of his tenure in the RWF, and Stan Hansen is of course a former World Heavyweight Champion, so there was some interest in this one. The King executed the opening 4 moves, but all were single pointers, and the Lariat responded with a Blatant Low Blow (-5 END). A Brazos Valley Backbreaker tested Lawler but he broke the hold. Lawler then came back with 8 straight moves, but only the bash with a hidden Hammer was more than a single pt, and he couldn’t get a pin attempt. An exhausted Hansen dug deep and managed consecutive Piledrivers, getting the pin at 8 min 42 secs.

Antonio Inoki v Superstar Billy Graham w/ manager Adnan Al Kaissey: Dusty Rhodes watched from ringside and distracted Superstar (-3 END). An even back and forth bout. Through 10 minutes there were no pin/sub attempts and the best moves were a Running Clothesline and Seated Armbar by Inoki and a Shoulder Breaker and Body Slam by Graham. Then Al Kaissey tripped Inoki, exhausting the Japanese superstar, and the American Superstar went for the pin (kick out). Inoki responded with a Big Slap and Cross Armbreaker, exhausting Graham, but could not get the pin either. Superstar tried to apply his finishing Bear Hug, but Inoki countered with an awesome Enzuigiri. Graham went down, Inoki covered and Pesek counted 1-2-3! 12 min 7 secs

Match Day 118
Uni-Dome, University of N. Iowa
Cedar Falls, IA
Referee = Larry Lisowski

Rick Martel v Rick Rude: Martel was disqualified in both previous matches between the Ricks (MD 101 and 108). Here, he proceeded to go to the Leg Scissors Choke right away, but Lisowski let it go. Rude performed a Diving Kneedrop, Martel caught him in a Quick Roll-Up Pin (kick out), and when the action went outside the ring, Martel Slammed Rude through the Announcer’s Table. Rude hit Martel with a Running Power Slam when they returned to the ring. Martel then executed the final 4 maneuvers of the match, including a Slingshot Splash and a Boston Crab, getting the submission on the latter. Smart money is on this feud continuing, but taking a little break and letting each come into contact with the sweat of a non-Rick. 7 min 9 secs

Bruno Sammartino v Sgt. Slaughter w/ manager Alfred Hayes: Slaughter hit with Bruno with a Chair early, drawing a DQ pt from Lisowski. Bruno earned a pin attempt after a DDT (kick out). A Power Slam by Slaughter tired Sammartino. Slaughter then snapped, grabbing a Steel Chair band whacking Bruno and catching the ref. Lisowski immediately called for the bell and DQd Slaughter. 4 min 56 secs

Ric Flair v Mitsu Arakawa: some people thought Mitsu cost Flair the Unites States Championship when on MD 114 he interfered in the bout btwn the champion Flair and Cena, swung a Candlestick, missed Cena and hit Flair, knocking him out. Flair is one of those people. Mitsu knew he was in for it and came at Flair with Brass Knuckles pre-match. Flair grabbed the Knuckles and used them on Arakawa (-5 END)! The former champ caught Mitsu in a Boston Crab right away, and got the submission in only 30 secs of ring action!

Dusty Rhodes v Harley Race: these two had a feud that culminated in a Steel Cage match on MD 57, won by Race. Then on MD 115, before Race’s bout against Hulk Hogan, Dusty Rhodes knocked him over on the entrance ramp and performed his finishing Bionic Elbow, causing Harley to lose by pre-match count-out and reigniting their feud. Here, the snarky college crowd showed their disdain for Dusty’s working man shtick, chanting “what could be dumber, than the son of a plumber” (-1 heat). Race opened with an Atomic Drop. Dusty used a Trash Can Lid to make his point. Rhodes followed up his Dusty Punches with the Bionic Elbow (savvy). 2 moves later a Dusty Atomic Drop exhausted Race. Rhodes covered and Lisowski counted 1-2-3. Race claimed a fast count (pin 1-6, rolled 6) but Dusty was the winner. 6 min 8 secs

The Midnight Rockers v The Russians: yet another quick match, as Shawn Michaels rolled up Ivan Koloff for a Quick Pin and got the count from Lisowski (pin 1-5 after using the ref’s +1 modified, rolled 5). 1 min 44 secs

WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP: The Crusher v Champion Nick Bockwinkel: interference from Sgt. Slaughter on MD 112 caused the champ to be disqualified. Unlike most of the matches this evening, this rematch would NOT disappoint. Bockwinkel opened here with 4 straight moves, including a Blatant Choke, Knee Slam and Spitting Asian Mist in the Face of Crusher (earning a DQ pt). A tired Crusher responded with a Press Slam but Bockwinkel came back with 3 straight high-impact moves, including a Piledriver that exhausted the challenger and an Elbow Smash to the Head that cut him open. Crusher got his foot on the ropes at the very last second after the Elbow Smash or this match would have been over. A 2nd Blatant Choke earned the champ a 2nd DQ pt at the 6 minute mark. At the time Bockwinkel led in END +5 to -12. The match was his, right, assuming he didn’t get himself DQd? WRONG! Crusher executed the next 10 moves, including a Kick to Knee Cap and the Crusher Claw, forcing Bockwinkel to use his savvy. A Hip Roll by the champ appeared to restore order, but when the action went outside the ring moments later it was Crusher who performed the Slam on the Concrete, exhausting Bockwinkel. Once they returned to the ring Crusher immediately had 2 more pin chances and came close to taking the title after a Body Slam on Ropes (pin 1-9, rolled 11). Bockwinkel was able to counter (FIN/CO) when Crusher went for this finisher, but the Step-Over Toe Hold did little to thwart the determined challenger. Crusher nailed a Piledriver, the ref counted 1-2-3, and the RWF crowned a new World Heavyweight Champion! 17 min 33 secs. Post-match, Crusher was joined by his allies Bruno Sammartino & Otto Wanz, who put the champ on their shoulders and paraded him around the ring. It is important to remember here that it was not long ago that Crusher was part of Destination Relegation and almost booted from the RWF. But since the start of that tournament, he has rallied, going 11-1 in his matches. Congrats to the Crusher!

Match Day 119
Cleveland Music Hall
Cleveland, OH
Referee = Tom “Rocky” Stone

Verne Gagne v Roddy Piper w/ bodyguard Bob Orton: Gagne turned the Pepper Spray around on Piper during a pre-match assault (-4 END). Gagne followed up a Minnesota Body Slam with a Flying Dropkick finisher and got the pin on a clearly discombobulated Piper. 2 min 46 secs

Jesse Ventura v The Iron Sheik a/ ally Stan Hansen: the Iron Sheik attacked the Body both pre- and post-match on MD 115. I doubt this match settled anything. Hansen got involved 3x, twice hitting a Running Lariat on Jesse (-2 END each) and once tossing a Bullwhip to the Iron Sheik who used it (-4 END). The Iron Sheik followed up the 2nd Running Lariat w/ a finishing Belly-to-Back Suplex and got the 3-count from Stone. 7 min 9 secs

The Ultimate Warrior v Larry Zbyszko w/ Paul Dangerously: this match probably just added fuel to the fire. These 2 met on MD 104, when the Sheik interfered and he and Z injured the Ultimate Warrior, and on MD 112 when Zbyszko used a Hammer on Warrior and eventually got the pin. Here, Zbyszko executed a Piledriver early. Warrior slammed Z through a Table outside the ring. Dangerously tossed his phone to Zbyszko who used it [to hit Warrior, not to make a call] (-4 END). Dangerously tried to interfere again but Warrior slammed him, putting him out of action for the duration. Zbyszko earned 2 DQ pts, for an Eye Gouge and Leg Scissors Choke. Zbyszko grabbed the phone again and bashed Warrior, but was caught by Stone and DQd. 9 min 36 secs

Jimmy Snuka v The Sheik: a child held up a pro-Snuka sign as the Sheik made his entrance, and he tore it up (+1 heat). The Sheik executed a Suplex early and followed it up with a Choke w/ Tag Rope. Superfly performed a Top Rope Body Press, but then was caught unawares when the Sheik nailed a DDT and went for the cover. Stone counted 1-2-3 and the Sheik got the SHOCKING upset! The Sheik had lost 12 straight singles matches.

Jerry Lawler v Dick the Bruiser: Otto Wanz watched ringside and distracted his former gangleader, Bruiser (-3 END). A pair of Forearm Smashes to Chest by Dick set the tone. Lawler clamped on a Boston Crab (ropes) and hit a nasty Elbow Drop. Bruiser exhausted Lawler after hitting him w/ a Chair. 2 straight 2nd Rope Knee Drops allowed Dick the Bruiser to get the pin. 9 min 48 secs

Otto Wanz & World Heavyweight Champion The Crusher v Ken Patera & King Kong Bundy w/ manager Bobby Heenan: Wanz and Crusher had finishers performed on them by the Sheik and Zbyszko on MD 101 before their bout with Patera and Bundy, and couldn’t make it to the ring. In this one, Bundy hit Crusher with 7 straight moves early, including a Body Block and an awesome Superplex, tiring the champ. Wanz came in hot but after Bundy tagged out, Patera rolled Wanz up in a Quick Pin Move w/ Fist Full of Tights (kick out). That was about it for the offense of Heenan’s crew. Wanz and Crusher proceeded to dominate the rest of the way, earning 10 pin/sub attempts and wearing out the heels in such a way that ENDs were combined +6 for Wanz/Crusher and -33 for their opponents. Crusher got the pin on Patera after a Bolo Punch at 19 min 37 secs.

Match Day 120
Field House, Seneca College
Toronto, ONT
Referee = Todd Sinclair

Sting v Paul Orndorff w/ manager Bobby Heenan: After 2 opening moves from Mr. Wonderful, Heenan inadvertently distracted his client, and Sting was able to apply his Scorpion Deathlock finisher. Orndorff submitted at 1 min 20 secs.

Antonio Inoki v Honky Tonk Man w/ ally Stan Hansen: Inoki performed his finisher on HTM before the latter’s bout on MD 114, causing him to lose via pre-match count-out. Here, Inoki was in control after a Cobra Twist and Stepover Standing Armbar, but after hitting an Enzuigiri, the ref got distracted by Hansen, and HTM was able to roll Inoki up in a Small Package. Sinclair counted 1-2-and then acknowledged Inoki getting his hand on the ropes just before the 3 count (pin 1-2, rolled 2 but also a 6 6-sided). Inoki soon took back control, executing the final 5 moves, including the finishing Manji-Gatame, which caused Honky Tonk Man to submit at 7 min 19 secs. Inoki has established himself as one of a handful of elite wrestlers here in the RWF.

Andre the Giant v Big John Studd w/ manager Bobby Heenan: Wahoo McDaniel watched ringside and distracted Studd during his pre-match preparations (-3 END). Andre landed, literally, a Butt-Smash in Corner then struggled in his attempt to Body Slam Big John, who hit Andre w/ a Forearm to Back. Andre retaliated w/ a Chop to Head. Studd managed 2 more moves before failing in a Powerbomb. Andre earned pin attempts after a pair of Body Slams but couldn’t keep Studd’s broad shoulders down. A Short-Armed Clothesline and Big Boot seemed to put Studd back in it, but a finishing Body Slam indeed finished Studd off, and Andre got the pin at 11 min 12 secs.

Hulk Hogan v Harley Race: these 2 were supposed to meet on MD 115 but Dusty Rhodes gave Handsome Harley a Bionic Elbow on the ramp, and Race never made it any further. These 2 made up for lost time, producing a great match, if not a satisfying conclusion. The 1st 10 minutes went back and forth with neither wrestling getting a pin/sub attempt. Race landed a 2nd Rope Knee Drop and Body Slam, and Hogan a pair of Stalling Suplexes and a Running Clothesline. From there the pin/sub attempts came hot and heavy. Race applied his Indian Deathlock but Hogan broke the hold. Race exhausted Hulk with a Body Slam but Hogan kicked out. Race tried to execute his finishing Piledriver but Hogan reversed the move and popped Harley w/ a Closed Fist to Head. Race hit 2 Piledrives in 2 minutes, but Hogan stayed alive. Hulk then rallied, nailing in order a Big Boot, Hogan Leg Drop and Hulked-Up Punches, and this time it was Race avoiding the pinfall. Another Piledriver then 2 moves later a Diving Headbutt allowed Harley to get the pin. BUT then Commissioner Buttons walked out and reversed the result of the match, saying that Race used the ropes for leverage! The fans immediately looked up to see the replay but the screen went dead. There were more than a few fans booing (-2 heat for Hogan). 16 min 57 secs

The British Bulldogs v Larry Zbyszko & The Sheik: the heels injured the Bulldogs on MD 106 after a melee at the end of a bout featuring neither of the 2 teams. This one didn’t last long. The Bulldogs delivered a pair of Powerslam/Diving Headbutt combos to the rapscallion Sheik, and got the pin on him after a Dynamite Kid Piledriver at 5 min 42 secs. Cup of coffee as a ranked tag team I guess.

UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP: Champion John Cena v Ric Flair: the Nature Boy probably deserved a rematch after the way he lost the title on MD 114 (botched interference by Mitsu Arakawa, a candlestick, Flair’s head). Flair came at Cena here w/ Pepper Spray pre-match, but Cena was able to turn it on Flair (-4 END)! This match was even through 6 minutes, with Cena having performed a Gutwrench Suplex, Superplex and Five Knuckle Shuffle and Flair a Back Suplex, Flair Chops in the Corner and a German Suplex (countering Cena’s finishing attempt). After a Flair Elbow Drop the champ threw the Nature Boy over the Top Rope, and from there the matched changed. Flair performed 5 straight moves for a total of 12 END pts outside the ring (without Sinclair reaching the count of 10 I may add), twice Body Slamming Cena on the Concrete and Slamming him through the Announcer’s Table. A few minutes after returning to the squared circle, a Figure Four finisher by Flair forced the submission out of the game Cena, and Ric Flair reclaimed the United States Championship! 12 min 18 secs

Match Day 121
Broome County Arena
Binghamton, NY
Referee = Red Shoes Unno

Magnum TA v Tully Blanchard: each man’s tag team partner (John Cena and Pat Patterson, respectively) entered the ring, causing a melee that resulted in a double DQ from Unno. 1 min 3 secs

Greg Valentine v Pat Patterson: these 2 followed their time-limit draw on MD 97 with Patterson rolling up the Hammer with fist full of tights on MD 114. A Boston Crab by Patterson in the 2nd minute here forced a surprising submission out of Valentine (sub 1-3, rolled 3). 1 min 36 secs

Ricky Steamboat v Jake Roberts: the Snake got the victory on MD 113 after he clamped on a Sleeper. Tully Blanchard botched his interference in this one, jumping into the ring w/ a Nightstick, swinging and missing the Dragon, and clocking Roberts. Steamboat covered for the easy pin at 1 min 33 secs.

Pedro Morales v Bret Hart w/ manager Jimmy Hart: each man has a victory against the other in singles action, with Hart forcing Morales to submit to a Boston Crab in their last encounter on MD 115. And on this night, after 3 BS matches lasting a TOTAL of just over 4 minutes, the crowd needed a good one, and boy did these gentlemen deliver one. After reaching the ropes on a Morales Sleeper, Bret grabbed a Singapore Cane (his NEW preferred object) from his manager and bashed Morales with it. After Morales nailed a Knee Drop Backbreaker, Hart hit a Snap Suplex. A Sharpshooter exhausted Morales and in fact Hart led in END +4 to -8 and looked well on his way to victory. One thing you can say about Morales is that he has heart, and he showed it here, battling back. Morales performed 7 straight moves, beginning with another Knee Drop Backbreaker and including a pair of Cannon Balls, exhausting Hart. But Morales failed to pin the Hitman. A single European Uppercut counter was enough, as Hart hit Morales hard and got the pin at 11 min 46 secs. Morales led in END at the time of the pin -10 to -12. Great bout!

Junkyard Dog v Mad Dog Vachon: great entrance for MDV, who really had the fans hating him in this battle of the dogs (+2 heat). After a Bulldog and Blatant Choke tired JYD, he responded with a Quick Pin Move and a Sleeper but couldn’t get the pin or sub. 2 minutes later a finishing Piledriver exhausted JYD and Mad Dog got the 3-count from Unno. 6 min 1 sec

WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP: Champions The Fabulous Freebirds w/ valet Precious v Nick Bockwinkel & Sgt. Slaughter w/ manager Alfred Hayes: a Fabulous Freebird Spike Piledriver forced a tired Slaughter from the ring in the opening minute. Bockwinkel performed 2 Blatant Chokes on Michael Hayes, earning 1 DQ pt, and also hit him with a Knee Slam. Precious accidentally tripping Hayes probably didn’t help the Freebird cause. Terry Gordy tagged in, Bockwinkel earned a 2nd DQ pt for a Front Choke Hold, and Gordy hit a Forearm Smash and Hip Toss, tiring out the former World Champion. Slaughter came in on a Hot Tag, and teamed up for a Double Atomic Drop with his outgoing partner before Alfred Hayes jumped onto the apron and distracted Unno, allowing Slaughter to drop a highly illegal 2nd Rope Piledriver (-7 END). A tired Gordy tagged out and it was Hayes’ turn to come in Hot. A pair of Fabulous Freebird Spike Piledrivers exhausted Slaughter and Hayes was able to get the pin at 10 min 56 secs. The Freebirds have made 3 successful title defenses and have won 7 matches in a row and 10 of their last 11.

Match Day 122
Thompson Arena, Dartmouth College
Hanover, NH
Referee = Brian Hebner

Wahoo McDaniel & Jerry Lawler v Honky Tonk Man & The Iron Sheik w/ ally Stan Hansen: the faces got the pin and victory against the heels on MD 108, then snapped post-match and beat the hell out of them. The Iron Sheik executed a pair of Stalling Suplexes on Lawler before the latter tagged out. Wahoo came in and applied his Indian Leg Lock and forced a quick submission out of the Iranian national (sub 1-2, rolled 2). 2 min 41 secs

The Rock & Roll Express v Pat Patterson & Tully Blanchard: Ricky Morton hit Tully w/ a nice Bulldog early then 2 moves later rolled him up for a Quick Roll-Up and got the 3-count! Wrestling fans were understandably getting a little restless after 2 quick and non-descript bouts. 2 min 10 secs

TELEVISION CHAMPIONSHIP: Ricky Steamboat v Champion Randy Savage: the Macho Man went on the offensive from the get go and never really let the Dragon in this one. Savage inflicted a Running Elbow Smash, a Slam through Announcer’s Table, Savage Punches in Corner, a Superplex and applied a series of illegal moves on Steamboat after KOing the ref (-10 END)! A Back Body Drop at the 5:30 mark earned the 1st pin attempt but Steamboat kicked out. Ricky also kicked out of pin attempts after a Release German Suplex, Body Slam and Flying Elbow. A Savage Sleeper put this one to bed and the Macho Man got the pin at 11 min 48 secs. At the time of the pin ENDS were -2 for Savage and -26 for Steamboat.

John Cena & Magnum TA v The Original Midnight Express: Cena/MTA have won all 3 encounters, 2 by DQ. After this one, it may be time for the Express to move on. Dennis Condrey opened with a Side Headlock then when Cena went for the Five Knuckle Shuffle held up a Hubcap and almost pinned his musclebound opponent (pin 1, rolled 2). Magnum came in an executed 4 straight moves on Condrey, including a Piledriver. Randy Rose tagged in without much success as the faces teamed up for a Double Back Drop then MTA hit him w/ a Diving Knee Drop. Condrey tagged back in but was met by another Diving Knee Drop. Things only got worse for the Express when Cena returned to the ring as he executed, in order, a Five Knuckle Shuffle, a Throwback and a pair of Attitude Adjustments, getting the pin. 9 min 48 secs

The Road Warriors w/ manager Paul Ellering v The Minnesota Wrecking Crew w/ manager Johnny Valiant: the Road Warriors seemed in control of this one, with Animal performing a Gut Buster and Running Power Slam and Hawk an Atomic Drop and Flying Body Block. Valiant broke up a Quick Pin Move by Hawk. But then Lars Anderson came in on a Hot Tag at the 9 min mark and hit 6 straight moves on Animal, including a Bear Hug, DDT, Clothesline and double-team Double Hip Roll, but he couldn’t put the Road Warrior away. Hawk tagged in Hot and got the pin after a Flying Body Press at 13 min 47 secs. The Road Warriors have fought through their rough patch and are certainly relevant again.

Announcement: you wanted it, you GOT IT! A tournament will begin on MD 123 to determine the # 1 contender for the United States Championship. 20 wrestlers will be involved, with 8 wrestling on MD 123 to cull the number down to a nice 16. The second round will occur on MDs 124 and 125, the quarterfinals on MD 126, and the semifinals on MD 127. The final will take place on MD 128 but there is a twist; not only will the 2 winners of the semifinals be involved, but they will be joined by John Cena! That’s right folks, a Triple Threat Match will decide who is the # 1 contender!

Another Announcement: the 2016 subdivision is ready to go! I am going to do a Raw and Smackdown, as well as the Pay-Per-Views. I am NOT doing a replay and will allow stories to develop as they may. I am beginning with the Raw after the Royal Rumble, as I don't want to deal with a Rumble at this point. I am also going to pretend that Smackdown was always on Tue. I am sticking with the general 6 matches per event format. I will begin with a tourney to decide the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. 32 wrestlers are involved with the part-timers not participating. Guys like The Undertaker, Brock Lesnar, etc will make occasional appearances but they are not in the tourney. I will also build up towards a Women's and Tag Team Championship. I am excited about this and I hope everyone following enjoys.

Match Day 123
The Palladium
New York, NY
Referee = Drake Wuertz

Hacksaw Duggan v Buddy Rose: Duggan dominated this one, Whacking Rose with his trademark 2x4 and getting the pin after a 2nd Powerbomb. 5 min 29 secs

United States Championship # 1 Contender Rd. 1: The Ultimate Warrior v The Honky Tonk Man w/ ally Stan Hansen: the 1st match of the tournament was an excellent one. The Honky Tonk Man did more than hold his own, thrilling the crowd with a Guitar Smash and a pair of Shake Rattle & Rolls. A Leaping Shoulder Block in the 15th minute gave Warrior his 1st pin attempt. Less than 2 minutes later a Warrior Splash resulted in a pin of the Elvis impersonator. 16 min 22 secs

United States Championship # 1 Contender Rd. 1: Sting v Mitsu Arakawa w/ ally Stan Hansen: shorter but just as exciting as the prior match. Sting threw Mitsu out of the ring at the 2 min mark. Mitsu hit 3 straight multipoint moves outside the ring, a Slam into Ring Steps, a Slam through Announcer’s Table, and Slam through Spanish Announcer’s Table (that’s right, the RWF is international), to seemingly take control. Sting hit a Scorpion Deathdrrop upon returning to the ring and followed it up w/ 3 more moves, including a Diving DDT. A Press Slam by Sting exhausted Arakawa and another Deathdrop looked to be it but Arakawa kicked out. Mitsu responded with a Jumping Judo Kick and Judo Chop to Throat, and got the 3-count from Wuertz at 9 min 55 secs.

United States Championship # 1 Contender Rd. 1: Wahoo McDaniel v Rick Rude: wow, another exciting bout! Wahoo threw Rude out of the ring in the 2nd minute and proceeded to Slam him through Table and hit a Body Slam on Concrete. Rude responded in kind by ramming Wahoo into the Ring Steps. After returning to the ring, Rude hit a pair of Running Power Slams and Wahoo a Suplex, and through 6 mins the match was even. Wahoo took control w/ Tomahawk Chops and consecutive Piledrivers and thought he had the pin but Wuertz ruled that Rude got his foot on the ropes at the last second (pin 1-8, rolled 3 but also 6 6-sided). Rude seemed rejuvenated, and struck back with 5 straight moves, including a Rude Awakening that exhausted Wahoo and a Rude Piledriver, but failed to get the pin. The two traded blows with a Release German Suplex from McDaniel and the use of a Hammer by Rude. But a Gutwrench Suplex by Wahoo ended this one as he got the 3-count! 13 min 24 secs

United States Championship # 1 Contender Rd. 1: Rick Martel v Lex Luger w/ ally Stan Hansen: a rubber match for Hansen, whose horses split their matches thus far. After the initial lock-up, Luger rolled Martel up in a tight Small Package, and Wuertz quickly counted to 3 (pin 1-4, rolled 4), giving Lex the victory at 34 secs.

Jesse Ventura & Jimmy Snuka v The Sheik & Larry Zbyszko w/ manager Paul Dangerously: the heels delivered a legendary promo with Zbyszko and Dangerously doing all the talking (“Why do you allow your client to team with this vicious partner?” “Look at my last name? That is how we live”) and the Sheik looking on menacingly (+3 END, +1 heat). The action was hard hitting from the get go, with Ventura nailing a Superplex on the Sheik and the heels teaming up for a Choke w/ Tag Rope/Elbow Smash combo. The Sheik used the Tag Rope for a Choke again and earned a DQ pt. Snuka tagged in and had a pair of unsuccessful pin attempts. Zbyszko hit a Piledriver on Snuka. Ventura Body Slammed Zbyszko onto the concrete. Snuka performed a Missile Dropkick and Flying Body Splash. Zbyszko executed 6 straight moves on Snuka after coming in on a Hot Tag, including a pair of Piledrivers. A Camel Clutch by the Sheik exhausted Ventura but he reached the ropes. Finally, a Shoulder Breaker by Zbyszko on Ventura resulted in a pin. 19 min 51 secs

Match Day 124
Cassell Coliseum
Blacksburg, WV
Referee = Connie Marker

United States Championship # 1 Contender Rd. 2: Magnum TA v Larry Zbyszko w/ manager Paul Dangerously: Zbyszko berated the ring announcer for failing to introduce him as “The New Living Legend” (+1 heat, +3 END). Tully Blanchard appeared ringside and slipped Zbyszko a roll of quarters, which Z used to MTA’s detriment (-6 END). He followed it up with a Flying Kneedrop and Shoulder Breaker, exhausting Magnum, and came oh so close to the pin (pin 1-5, rolled 6). MTA battled back with 3 straight moves, including a Running Knee Smash and Belly-to-Belly Suplex. Marker counted 1-2-3, and Magnum advanced to the quarterfinals. 4 min 15 secs

Jerry Lawler v Mitsu Arakawa w/ ally Stan Hansen: Arakawa will be kicking himself for letting this one get away from him. Arakawa had 3 pin/sub attempts while Lawler had 0, and led in END -4 to -15. But Marker caught Arakawa executing a chokehold of some kind on 3 different occasions and had to DQ him (to be fair he caught Lawler 2x). 9 min 26 secs

United States Championship # 1 Contender Rd. 2: Junkyard Dog v Gene Kiniski: Gene earned a pin attempt early with a Sunset Flip but JYD dominated this one, executing a Suplex, Snap Suplex and Body Slam, and finishing Kiniski off with 3 sets of JYD Headbutts. Kiniski screamed at Marker post-match, claiming a fast count. 11 min 53 secs

The British Bulldogs v Ox & Baron: the Bulldogs were injured on MD 106 when they tried to rescue the Road Warriors from a 4 on 2 situation by Ox, Baron, the Sheik and Larry Zbyszko. Having gotten retribution on the Sheik and Zbyszko on MD 120 ( a pin in under 6 mins), the Bulldogs looked to exact the same on Ox & Baron here. The Bulldogs hit 3 straight double-team moves on Ox Baker early on (Dual Atomic Drops, Double Face Plant and Sandwich Clothesline). After a Davey Boy Smith Series of Headbutts, Ox was only too happy to allow Baron von Raschke an opportunity. The Baron came in on a Hot Tag and hit 3 straight moves, including a Power Slam before Smith tagged out. The Dynamite Kid performed a Piledriver on the Baron, before the latter steadied the ship with 6 straight moves, including Repeated Head to Turnbuckle, The Claw and a Power Slam. Ox tagged back in, as did Smith, who came in Hot. Smith performed in order a Gutwrench Suplex, Press Slam and teamed with the Kid for their finishing Powerslam and Flying Headbutt combo. Ox was pinned at 10 min 38 secs. The Bulldogs have moved themselves back into the championship picture.

United States Championship # 1 Contender Rd. 2: Jimmy Snuka v Television Champion Randy Savage (Television Championship NOT at stake): Savage went to the Pepper Spray pre-match but Superfly turned it on him (-4 END). Snuka clamped on a Brain Claw in the 2nd minute and the Macho Man determined that self-preservation was the best ploy and submitted. 1 min 36 secs

WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP: Champion The Crusher v Nick Bockwinkel: the former champion certainly deserved a rematch. He offered a pre-match handshake but Crusher was aware of his trickery and swept him off his feet. The first few minutes went back and forth before Bockwinkel assumed control w/ 7 straight moves, including a pair of Flying Shoulder Smashes and even more devastatingly a pair of Piledrivers. A Kick to Ribs, an Indian Deathlock and another Piledriver earned more pin/sub attempts for Bockwinkel but Crusher hung in there. Crusher fought back with a DDT and Press Slam, exhausting Bockwinkel, but couldn’t get the pin. As Crusher set up for his finisher, Bockwinkel reversed it, and hit his 4th Piledriver of the match. This time, Crusher could not kick out, and Nick Bockwinkel reclaimed the World Heavyweight Championship! At the time of the pin ENDS were Crusher -25 and Bockwinkel -10. 14 min 35 secs

Thanks, Alan! I have only played TV Pro 1, and as a kid Superstar. I see Superstar on EBay, sometimes the real thing and am tempted but...

I hear Filsinger's Legends of Wrestling is good.

I am happy with TV Pro 1. It is an excellent game if you like playing move by move. I have adapted some of the TV Pro 2 rules and created my own charts to give more moves/holds and different events to make it more realistic in my mind. But that is part of the fun, adapting the game to your needs.

Derek, I have tons of cards for legends of wrestling but to be honest with you never got into it. Never did much for me. TV Pro in my opinion is way better.

Thanks for the opinion on Legends! I have checked it out, read what people had to say, read the instructions, etc, but never pulled the trigger. Something just seems off. Glad to hear a confirmation of my instinct.
