Match Day 19
Springfield Civic Center Arena
Springfield, MA
Referee = Connie Marker

Bruno Sammartino v Larry Zbyszko w/ Manager Paul Dangerously: Short but interesting match. Bruno opened by smashing Zbyszko with a chair, unseen by the referee. Zbyszko assumed control with a series of moves, including 2 Blatant Chokes (Marker gave him DQ pts). Dangerously tossed an object into the ring but Bruno intercepted and used it on Zbyszko, evening up the match. Then, Dangerously, Curt Henning and Gene Kiniski entered the ring and attacked Sammartino. Zbyszko was DQ’d at 7 min 3 secs. Otto Wanz tried to rescue the fallen winner but was beaten down. It’s a madhouse! At the end of the night Dr. Brenda Buttons announced Wanz would be out of action for 3 weeks. 7 min 3 secs

Junkyard Dog v Harley Race: JYD was given a cool reception by the New England crowd as he made his way to the ring, and it seemed to affect him, as Race dominated the match, albeit with a series of illegal moves. Race was given his first DQ pt after an Eye Gauge, his second after the use of a foreign object, and his third after using the same foreign object. DQ! 4 min 37 secs. Another disappointing finish for the underachieving Race.

Tito Santana v Leon White: Pre-match, Jerry Lawler grabbed the microphone and taunted his upcoming opponent Ted Dibiase, insisting that revenge would be his. White opened the match with the use of a foreign object, surprisingly unseen by the referee. He had two early pin/sub attempts, the first a Quick Roll-Up and the second a Boston Crab, but could get neither the pin nor the submission. Santana got into the match with a Suplex and Mule Kick. He put the Sleeper Hold on but White was able to reach the ropes. A few minutes later Santana again caught White in the Sleeper and this time was able to get the submission. 8 min 32 secs

Jerry Lawler v Ted Dibiase: After all the build-up to this one (remember that Dibiase inflicted a pre-match assault on Lawler before the latter’s match with Terry Funk on MD 14) it was a bit of a surprise that there was no pre-match event. These guys just wanted to get on and wrestle! Dibiase caught Lawler with a Small Package early but couldn’t keep his shoulders down. Lawler then took over, hitting the Million Dollar Man with a chair (not seen by Marker), using a hidden foreign object (not seen by Marker), and battering Dibiase twice with a series of punches. Lawler finished him off with a Fireball (AGAIN unseen by Marker) and pin. 8 min 25 secs. I don’t want to insist Connie Marker has a face bias but c’mon!

Kerry Von Erich v Tommy Rich: There was a lot of anticipation for this match too between two of the top aspirants for the US Championship. Rich executed the first 7 maneuvers, exhausting Von Erich after a Flying Fist Drop. The match almost ended minutes later after Rich executed a devastating Piledriver, but Von Erich got his foot on the rope just before Marker came down with the 3d count. Von Erich was able to inflict some damage with consecutive Release German Suplexes, but then Terry Funk entered the ring and knocked out Connie Marker (honestly, I can’t say I felt sorry for him) and he was replaced by Bruno Lauer (who is awfully lenient on heel wrestlers). Rich, who turned heel on MD 16, immediately took advantage of the change in referee and used a foreign object, unseen by Lauer, and got the 3 count. 8 min 45 secs. At the time of the pin Rich was leading in END +3 to -16.

British Bulldogs v East-West Connection: The heel tag team soaked up the boos from this [surprisingly?] pro-British Bulldog New England crowd. Ventura and Davey Boy Smith began the match and Ventura seemed to be in control when Davey Boy rolled him up in a Small Package. Ventura got his foot on the ropes and avoided the pin. Davey Boy tagged out and the Dynamite Kid immediately rolled Ventura up in another Small Package. This time the Body was pinned! 4 min 9 secs

Commissioner Percy Buttons announced that new rankings will be posted tomorrow and that Match Day 20 will feature another title defense by World Heavyweight Champion Stan Hansen.

Match Day 20
Stanley Theatre
Jersey City, NJ
Referee = Johnny Shorn (but not for long)

Ricky Steamboat v Curt Hennig w/ Manager Bobby Heenan: On MD 17, Hennig joined the Iron Sheik to intimidate the referee before the latter’s match against Steamboat. Steamboat dominated the match and got the pin, but still wanted revenge on Hennig. Here, in the first minute of the match, Johnny Shorn was inadvertently hit during a whip to the ropes, and had to be replaced by Ralph Hamilton. The first half of the match went back and forth, with both wrestlers executing high flying maneuvers. Steamboat controlled the second half, exhausting Hennig with a Top Rope Body Press, and following it up with a Figure Four Leglock, Karate Thrust and Boston Crab, getting the submission on the latter at 14 min 21 secs.

Jimmy Snuka v Ken Patera w/ Manager Bobby Heenan: Superfly executed the first five holds of the match, tiring out the strongman. Patera responded with a Swinging Neck Breaker and by throwing Snuka out of the ring. Once on the concrete, Snuka slammed Patera through the announcer’s table not once but twice (is that even possible?). Snuka then tried to bodyslam his opponent but Patera reversed the move and slammed Snuka on the concrete, before sliding back into the ring just before the referee finished his count-out and while Snuka was lying prone outside the ring. Win by count-out for Patera! 5 min 35 secs

Dusty Rhodes v The Sheik: Way back on MD8, during Dusty’s match against Andre the Giant, the Sheik slipped Andre a roll of quarters, which he used to pummel Dusty. The crowd remembered the travesty and greeted the Sheik with a deafening chorus of boos. The negative reaction seemed to affect the Sheik, as Rhodes caught him in a Sleeper right away. The Sheik recovered and was able to hit Rhodes with a Double Leg Kick, an Arabian Facebuster and Mounted Punches, consecutively, before putting Dusty in a Figure Four Leglock. It looked like the end for the American Dream when from out of nowhere Jack Brisco rushed into the ring and KO’d the Sheik (who lost 10 END pts), exhausting him and breaking the submission hold. Ralph Hamilton was oblivious. Rhodes put on another Sleeper and that was all she wrote. 3 min 42 secs.

Tony Atlas v Abdullah the Butcher w/ Manager Paul Dangerously: the RWF gets weirder and weirder. Dangerously announced pre-match that he was now representing Abdullah after the cowardly Ellering quit [to focus on the Road Warriors]. He stated that the Butcher has “the right Paul” looking after him now. Then, in the second minute of the match, after Abdullah threw Atlas out of the ring, Dangerously turned on his client and clocked him. The Butcher was counted out. Dangerously apparently has turned Face! 1 min 40 secs

High Flyers v Minnesota Wrecking Crew: the pin/sub attempts were even but the Anderson brothers were well ahead in points when Gagne successfully tried a Quick Roll-Up pin on Lars and Ole couldn’t break it up. High Flyers pull the upset! 12 min 58 secs

THE MAIN EVENT: Verne Gagne v World Heavyweight Champion Stan Hansen: Hansen dominated early on, executing a Brazos Valley Backbreaker and DDT but was unable to keep Gagne’s shoulders down for a pin. Gagne got back in the match with a DDT of his own and some outside of the ring maneuvers. But a Chop Block, Head Twist and finally a Texas Stomp allowed the Bad Man from Borger, Texas to pin the legendary Gagne and retain the World Heavyweight Championship. 9 min 39 secs

Match Day 21
Baltimore Civic Center
Baltimore, MD
Referee = Tom Hamilton

Jerry Lawler v Don Muraco w/ Manager Saul Creatchman: the Magnificent One was caught twice using a foreign object, and he did have a pin attempt after an Asian Spike, but other than that it was all Lawler, who got the pin after a Small Package. 8 min 36 secs

Tito Santana v Adrian Adonis w/ Manager Bobby Heenan: a heel manager influencing a match in FAVOR of his client? You better believe it! Santana opened the match by hitting Adonis overhead with a chair, somehow unseen by the referee, and repeated the illegal move 2 more times during the match (receiving 1 total DQ pt from Hamilton). Adonis used no less than 6 dirty moves, including twice hitting Santana with brass knuckles passed to him from Heenan. Adonis also hit Santana with a chair and an intentional Low Blow, and Heenan gouged Santana’s eyes when he was caught in the ropes. Adonis got the pin at 12 mins after Heenan reached under the bottom rope and tripped Santana. Adonis led in END -8 to -20 at the time of the pin.

Jack Brisco v Terry Funk: it took 3 min 3 secs and ZERO moves from Funk for Brisco to get the pin with a Bridging German Suplex. Technical wrestling fans would have enjoyed the Hip Toss and Head Scissors from Brisco. Funk is now 0-4.

Bobo Brazil v Gene Kiniski: with Kiniski in the top 10 and Brazil just outside, this was a battle of top wrestlers. Brazil executed the first 9 maneuvers of the match, including an Atomic Drop and Shin Breaker. Kiniski got back into the match with a Back Drop and his finishing Backbreaker, but couldn’t keep Bobo’s shoulders pinned to the mat. Brazil exhausted Kiniski by slamming him on the concrete outside the ring, then inflicted another Atomic Drop when the grapplers reentered the ring. Finally, it was a finishing Coco Butt and pin for Brazil. Bobo will likely move into the top 10 and closer to a possible title shot. 9 min 9 secs

Midnight Rockers v The Butchers: I know this is going to be hard to believe but, in a match that the Butchers were controlling, though not quite dominating, the Sheik, running contrary to course, earned his first DQ pt for hitting Marty Jannety over the head with a chair, his second when he and Abdullah executed a pretty Doubleteam Move (dropkick by Abdullah and Facebuster by the Sheik) and the pivotal third when he choked Jannety with the tag rope. Butchers are DQ’d and Midnight Rockers win! 17 min 34 secs. For this pundit, the Sheik seems like an excellent wrestler who just can’t seem to help himself. Unlike Funk above who just can’t seem to wrestle!

MAIN EVENT: Dick the Bruiser v Superstar Billy Graham w/ Manager Adnan Al Kaissey: with Bruiser ranked 7th and Graham 4th, this was a big one and worthy of the appellation, main event! Dick opened with a Turnbuckle Ram and a couple of single point maneuvers before Al Kaissey got involved, botching an interference attempt and clocking Superstar with chair (costing Superstar 8 END pts). Bruiser added to Superstar’s misery with an Eye Gauge. Graham was able to put Bruiser in a Boston Crab but could not earn the submission. Moments later, Bruiser finished Superstar off with consecutive 2d Rope Knee Drops. 4 min 53 secs. END was +4 to -18 in favor of Dick the Bruiser at the time of the pin.

Match Day 22
Cleveland Public Hall
Cleveland, OH
Referee = Dick Wohrle

Junkyard Dog v Mongolian Stomper: Stomper controlled the match and almost had the pin after a DDT but JYD kicked out just before the 3 count. Seconds later, Stan Hansen was in the ring, brandishing his branding iron, and his swing at JYD missed but connected with the Stomper, knocking him out, and allowing JYD to cover for the pin. 5 min 36 secs

Wahoo McDaniel v Mr. Saito: No problem for McDaniel, who dominated from start to finish, getting the pin after a devastating Piledriver at 6 min 58 secs. Post-match, Saito lost it over comments made by the ringside commentator. Jack Brisco was watching backstage and issued a challenge to Saito. Expect to see that match-up soon.

The Crusher v King Kong Bundy w/ Bobby Heenan: a pre-match attack by Bundy and Harley Race left the Crusher dazed (and he lost 10 pts END!). The Crusher was caught by Wohrle hitting Bundy with a chair and punching Bundy in the groin. Bundy thought he finished Crusher off with a Bundy Splash but Crusher got his shoulders off the mat. After Crusher hit Bundy again with a chair, Wohrle called for the bell and disqualified the veteran. 6 min 31 secs. Seemed awfully unfair for Crusher, who was attacked pre-match by 2 wrestlers, to have been DQ'd.

Rick Martel v Tommy Rich: an interesting match until, for the second time in the RWF, fireworks went off during the match, showering the ring with sparks, and injuring both wrestlers. The match was declared a draw. At the end of the night, Dr. Brenda Buttons announced that both wrestlers would miss 1 week of action. Pyrotechnician Sparky Buttons, no relation to the Doctor or the Commissioner, Percy Buttons, will be taking a leave of absence to attend a fireworks safety course.

British Bulldogs v Blackjacks w/ Manager Bobby Heenan: 8 pin attempts for the Bulldogs to 1 for the Blackjacks. Davey Boy Smith walloped Mulligan with two Power Slams and a Running Powerbomb, consecutively, but couldn't get the pin. On a lighter note, Heenan tried to interfere but was knocked unconscious by Davey Boy Smith, delighting the crowd. The Dynamite Kid pinned Lanza after a finishing Bulldog at 17 min 50 secs. At the time of the pin, the Bulldogs were a combined +9 END and the Blackjacks -36.

Bruno Sammartino v Nick Bockwinkle: the # 6 v the # 3 wrestler, as per the most recent rankings. Many thought Sammartino would be the favorite for the next title shot against Stan Hansen if he could pull out a victory here. Bruno got an early pin opportunity after a DDT but Bockwinkle got his foot on the ropes. The match was even through 6 minutes. Bockwinkle earned a DQ pt, and turned the match, when he hit Sammartino with a chair. He then executed 2 perfect Piledrivers, failing to get the pin but exhausting Sammartino. A Kick to the Ribs and Bruno was pinned. 8 min 42 secs. Bockwinkle is probably the most deserving of a title shot but has refused to wrestle his friend, Hansen. He may be biding his time until a face takes the title away from Hansen.

Match Day 23
Veterans Memorial Auditorium
Columbus, OH
Referee = Jack Pesek

King Kong Brody v Paul Orndorff w/ Manager Bobby Heenan: an interesting match. Brody almost got the fall early with a Quick Roll Up Pin but Mr. Wonderful kicked out at the last second. The match was relatively even until Brody executed a finishing Stalling Piledriver. He didn’t get the pin there but he did exhaust Orndorff. Brody bit Orndorff’s forehead three times, all unseen by the oblivious Pesek, and got the 3 count after the third. 13 min 55 secs.

Bob Backlund v Buddy Rose: this one was over before it even started as both wrestlers exited the ring and brawled in the crowd. A double count-out at 2 min 22 secs.

Jimmy Snuka v Iron Sheik: short back and forth match. The Iron Sheik executed a Belly-to-Back Suplex and got the quick count from Pesek for the pin at 4 min 36 secs.

Sailor Art Thomas v Harley Race: Sailor Art’s pre-match interview was inauspiciously interrupted by Mr. Saito, promoting his own upcoming match v Jack Brisco. Race tried two Quick Pin Moves with a fist full of tights early but couldn’t keep Thomas’s shoulders down. It didn’t matter as Race dominated the match, gouging the veteran’s eyes and hitting him with a chair, with impunity of course, then hitting him with a 2d Rope Knee Drop. Mercifully, he finished Sailor Art off with a Piledriver at 6 min 09 secs.

Ricky Steamboat v Roddy Piper: the crowd gave Steamboat a hero’s welcome when he entered the ring, and he showed his love for Columbus by absolutely dominating Piper. Steamboat stunned Roddy with two Top Rope Body Presses early on, then had his first pin attempt with a finishing Flying Body Press. An exhausted Piper fought that pin off, and another after Knife Edge Chops. A second series of Knife Edge Chops was too much though, and Piper was pinned. 8 min 37 secs.

The Road Warriors w/ Paul Ellering v the Fabulous Freebirds w/ Precious: Although the Road Warriors were controlling the match, neither pins nor devastating moves were attempted until Precious threw a metal hairbrush from her purse into the ring for Terry Gordy to use. Animal intercepted it and bashed Gordy with it. Two moves later Hawk joined Animal for the Doomsday Device, Hayes was met by Hawk, and Gordy was pinned. 15 min 03 secs. The Road Warriors move to 2-0 and into prime position for a World Tag Team Championship opportunity, while the Freebirds move to 0-2 and into the role of spoiler.

Match Day 24
Fox Theatre
St. Louis, MO
Referee = Larry Lisowski

Billy Robinson v Ted Dibiase: Dibiase got an early Quick Roll Up Pin attempt but the match was controlled by Robinson. Billy executed his finishing Double-Arm Suplex and a few moves later a German Suplex, but couldn't keep Dibiase down for the count. They took the match outside the ring and brawled in the crowd. Lisowski counted both wrestlers out. Robinson led in END -1 to -11 at the time of the count-out. 10 mins 16 secs

Pedro Morales v Ken Patera w/ Manager Bobby Heenan: The Brain got banned from ringside after being caught trying to pass an object to Patera. Morales was in control but allowed the Olympian to get in his head, complaining to the ref re: his dirty tactics, which inspired Patera to push him into the referee, who DQ'd Morales. 7 min 33 secs

Tony Atlas v Leon White: Mr. USA got in some good licks, including a Running Clothesline, Running Power Slam and his finishing Full Nelson, but White was not to be defeated tonight. Leon hit Atlas with a Big Splash and applied the Boston Crab twice, getting the submission on the second. 9 mins 10 secs

Jumbo Tsuruta v John Studd w/ Manager Bobby Heenan: Tsuruta began the encounter with a handicap after being assaulted pre-match by a new heel, Randy Savage (-6 END!). Studd tired him out quickly but Tsuruta took over from there with some good technical wrestling and a German Suplex, and finished Big John off with an Abdominal Stretch. 5 mins 30 sec

Original Midnight Express v East-West Connection: The Junkyard Dog attacked Adrian Adonis on the ramp pre-match and knocked him out with a Thump. Adonis was unable to make it to the ring. Count-out!

MAIN EVENT: Non-title bout. Jerry Lawler v Stan Hansen: Lawler has been aiming for the US Championship, but a victory here would allow him to dream a bigger dream. A quick match that went exactly as follows: (1) Lawler executed a Back Suplex, (2) Lawler Piledrives Hansen, (3) Wild Event-Hansen misses a flying headbutt, and (4) In-Match Event-the new tag team of Ox Baker and Baron Von Raschke enter the ring and flatten both grapplers. Double count-out! Post-match, Dr. Brenda Buttons revealed that the Heavyweight Champ would be out of action for 3 weeks! The rules of the RWF clearly state that a champion must defend his belt at least once every month, so Hansen is safe for now, though he probably won't be 100% when he defends his title next.

Match Day 25
San Antonio Civic Auditorium
San Antonio, TX
Referee = Tom "Rocky" Stone

"Funky Mischief"

Ricky Steamboat v Gene Kiniski: Steamboat blocked Kiniski's pre-match assault (+3 END for Steamboat). The Dragon controlled the match, with 4 pin attempts to Kiniski's 0. Steamboat got the 3 count after a 2d Rope Headbutt. 11 min 45 secs

Jack Brisco v Mr. Saito: Mr. Saito lost it after getting pinned by Wahoo McDaniel on MD 22. Brisco was watching backstage and issued a challenge. Saito accepted and interrupted Sailor Art's interview on MD 23 to promote the match. Brisco was complimented pre-match by the legendary Bruno Sammartino (+5 END!). Maybe it went to Jack's head, as Saito dominated the match. The high point for Brisco during the match was when Terry Funk intervened, grabbing Brisco from behind, and allowing Saito to go for the Throat Thrust. Brisco ducked and Saito hit Funk. Saito shook it off and connected with a Karate Chop a little later and with a Throat Thrust. After another Karate Chop, he got the pin. 10 min 13 secs.

John Cena v Jesse Ventura: Cena's debut. Cena landed awkwardly after a Flying Elbow during the 3d minute (-10 END). Somehow, Cena persevered. He blocked Ventura's use of brass knuckles, took them away from the Body, and KO'd him with them! An easy pin and Cena got his first victory, albeit one that turned out to be pyrrhic as Dr. Brenda Buttons revealed after the match, and after thoroughly examining Cena, maybe a little too thoroughly, that Cena would miss 6 weeks of action. 7 min 02 secs.

Kerry Von Erich v Don Muraco w/ Manager Saul Creatchman. Early in the bout, Creatchman distracted the ref and Muraco used an object to hurt Von Erich (-10 END!). Muraco followed up with his finishing Hawaiian Hammer but couldn't pin Von Erich. A minute later Muraco executed a Backbreaker and Body Slam, but Von Erich kicked out after both. Kerry then executed the next 6 moves, including a Body Slam and Power Slam, culminating in a Small Package and pin. 7 min 15 secs. Von Erich was down -14 to -4 in END at the time of the pin.

High Flyers v The Butchers: Abdullah beat the hell out of Brunzell to start the match, but when Brunzell tagged out, Gagne gave it all back and then some to the Butcher. Abdullah couldn't tag out but when Gagne threw him over the top rope, Terry Funk returned ringside and DDT'd Gagne on the concrete. The referee immediately called for the bell and the Butchers were DQ'd. Abdullah, the Sheik and Funk proceeded to beat Brunzell and Gagne. The busy Brenda Buttons confirmed post-match that the Flyers would be out of commission for 2 weeks. 8 mins 17 secs

Bobo Brazil v Superstar Billy Graham w/ Manager Adnan Al Kaissey: 2 top 10 wrestlers. In the 2d minute, Al Kaissey distracted Stone, allowing Roddy Piper to enter the ring and double-team Bobo (-5 END). Graham immediately followed up with a Bearhug and then a foreign object, the latter unseen by Stone. Bobo was exhausted, Stone gave a quick count and Superstar got the pin and victory. 3 min 9 secs.

Match Day 26
McNichols Arena
Denver, CO
Referee = Bruno Lauer

Jumbo Tsuruta v Randy Savage: The Macho Man savagely assaulted Tsuruta on MD 24 before the latter’s match with John Studd. Revenge was not exacted here, as Savage controlled the match, pinning Jumbo with a Small Package at 9 min 36 secs.

Junkyard Dog v Adrian Adonis w/ Manager Bobby Heenan: Another grudge match, as JYD knocked out Adonis with a Thump pre-match on MD 24. No Thump here, just a good old fashioned thrashing as JYD executed all 7 of the moves in the match. He found Adonis’s hidden belt buckle and walloped him with it (-8 END for Adrian). A Backbreaker exhausted and finished Adonis off. 3 min 41 secs

Wahoo McDaniel v Seth Rollins: Wahoo was complimented pre-match by Verne Gagne (+5 END) and welcomed Seth to the RWF by whacking him with a chair. An even match, but McDaniel caught Rollins in a Small Package and got the quick count pin from Lauer. 6 min 29 secs

Dusty Rhodes v King Kong Bundy w/ Manager Bobby Heenan: this match had to be seen to be believed. It began with some pre-match referee intimidation by Bundy and Ken Patera (+5 END for Bundy). Each wrestler caught the other early with a Sleeper hold. Bundy had a pin attempt after a Running Knee Lift but the referee got knocked down and was woozy for 30 seconds or so and couldn’t make the count. In the mean time, Junkyard Dog entered the ring, knocked out Bundy, and placed Dusty on top of him. Lauer came to and counted 1-2-3! 4 min 42 secs.

Midnight Rockers v Minnesota Wrecking Crew: The Road Warriors grabbed the microphone from the Crew pre-match to taunt their upcoming opponent, the East-West Connection. Lars and Ole combined to use a mini-crowbar 5 times, unseen by Lauer. They also placed some steel under one of the turnbuckles and smashed Shawn Michael’s head into it (-15 END). Lars applied a Back Breaker to Shawn and on their fifth pin/sub attempt, to the Rockers one, the Crew got the pin. 16 min 30 secs. The Wrecking Crew led in END at the time of the pin by a combined +6 to -24.

Rick Martel v Tommy Rich: a rematch from MD 22, when pyrotechnics went off during the match and sparks injured the combatants. Although Martel did not quite dominate here, he did control it most of the way, executing ten moves of 2+ points (including four Diving Crossbodies) to Rich’s two. The first pin/sub came at the 6 minute mark when Martel caught Rich in a Boston Crab. Tommy got the next one when he hit Martel with his finishing Flying Fist Drop and came oh so close to getting the pin but Rick kicked out at the very last second. Martel then took over the match, punishing Rich with a Slingshot Splash, a Piledriver and finally getting the pin after a Scoop Slam. 13 min 18 secs.

ANNOUNCEMENTS: Match Day 29 is going to be awesome! After the events of MD 26, King Kong Bundy and Ken Patera have challenged Dusty Rhodes and Junkyard Dog (what a tag team!!!) to a tag team bout, and Dusty and the Dog have accepted! And if that is not enough, the United States Championship will be contested in a no time limit, no double disqualification, no double count-out match between Rick Martel and Jerry Lawler! Assuming no unforeseen circumstances (hopefully the Federation can keep the Sheik and Terry Funk away from the ring!) the first United States Champion will be crowned! Are there enough exclamation points in this announcement?!?!?!

Bundy will get the five count over JYD. He stuck his nose where it didn't belong and he will pay!

Interesting take. Another view is that whenever you enter the squared circle, you enter the junkyard and become JYD's business Smile

Match Day 27
Winterland Arena
San Francisco, CA
Referee = Tim Fuller

Hacksaw Duggan v Larry Zbyszko w/ Manager Paul Dangerously: Duggan impressed in his debut, dominating the match. He had 3 pin/sub attempts, 2 after Powerbombs and 1 after a Shoulder Breaker. Zbyszko was down -7 to + 7 in END when he snapped, grabbing a steel chair from ringside and nailing both Hacksaw Jim and the referee Fuller. DQ! 8 min 34 secs

Dean Ambrose v The Sheik: regular viewers know that when the Sheik makes an appearance, something strange is going to happen. Here, he was set up to attack Ambrose with a chair pre-match. Tito Santana though was in no mood for funny stuff, snuffed out the assault, and whacked the Sheik with said chair (-7 END)! Never one to give up on a good, or bad, idea, the Sheik grabbed a steel chair 1 minute into the match and pummeled Ambrose until the locker room cleared to stop the beating. Ambrose wins by DQ. 1 min 09 secs. The Sheik falls to 0-4, though surprisingly this was his first singles match in which he was disqualified.

Antonio Inoki v Curt Hennig w/ Manager Bobby Heenan: in a match lasting 8 min 40 secs, Hennig executed exactly one move, a Quick Roll-Up Pin that Inoki kicked out of. An impressive debut for Inoki. His last 3 moves were a Fall-Away Slam, a Seated Armbar and a Figure Four Leglock. He forced a submission on the latter.

King Kong Brody v Brock Lesnar: a match that was as good in reality as it looked on paper. Back and forth, with each wrestler having periods of dominance. Lesnar had 7 pin/sub attempts to Brody’s 4 and led in END at the time of the pin -17 to -24. In the 10th minute Brock executed a Backbreaker that exhausted Brody and came close to a pin, only to have KKB kick out at the very last second. Over the next 5 minutes Lesnar executed a Snap Suplex and his finishing F-5 but to no avail. In the 15th minute Brody took over, executing 8 straight maneuvers, including a series of Punches with Chain, a Boston Crab, and a Piledriver. Lesnar would neither submit nor be pinned, and he responded by slamming Brody’s head into the ring post and following it up with a finishing Brock Lock and pin. Awesome match that almost went the distance. 18 mins 26 secs

The Crusher v Harley Race: another excellent tussle! Crusher tired out Race early with a Neck Toss across the ring, 2 rammings of his head into the ring post, an Eye Gauge, a Sleeper and a real wrestling move, a Spinning Hammerlock. Race got into the match with a Knee Roll, a Thumb to the Throat and a Body Slam. The Crusher had pin attempts after another unseen Eye Gauge, Body Slam on Ropes and his finishing Full Nelson. Race fought back, earning 3 straight pin/sub attempts with an Atomic Drop, Sleeper and his finishing Diving Headbutt. There was one more card in the deck though – a finishing Bolo Punch from the Crusher, and this one was indeed finishing as he got the 3 count for the pin. 14 min 33 secs

British Bulldogs v Ox and Baron: In a match that lasted 10 min and 54 secs, Ox Baker never tagged out and never executed a move; his END was -38 at the time of the pin!!! (For those wondering, Ox is a 0 control and both Bulldogs are + 1, and once one wrestler gains control he wins all ties. So here, Ox may have rolled a 5 and Davey Boy a 4, but since Davey Boy executed the last move Ox needed to roll 2 better to take control, which he never did). The other 3 wrestlers (and I use that term loosely as the only wrestling Baron Von Raschke did was break up a pin attempt) finished the match with the same END as they started. As is the norm in the RWF, the neophyte Ox Baker was christened with a steel chair. And from there it went downhill. Pin/sub attempts were made after a Small Package, another Hit with a Chair, a Boston Crab, 3 finishing Powerslams and finally a finishing Flying Headbutt. The Bulldogs are on a collision course with the Road Warriors for the World Tag Team Championship.

Match Day 28
Paramount Northwest Theatre
Seattle, WA
Referee = Brad Robinson

Verne Gagne v Iron Sheik: Jumbo Tsuruta joined Gagne for the entrance. I don't know why. The opening bell rang, Verne attempted a Superplex, and referee Robinson was KO'd! Replacement ref Tom Foley rushed to the ring and reached a 20 count. Double count-out!

Bob Backlund v Buddy Rose: a rematch from MD 23 when they were both counted in after brawling in the crowd. A very even match. Buddy almost knocked Backlund out with a Sleeper a few minutes into the match, but Backlund reached the ropes just in the nick of time. Backlund responded with an Arm Bar Submission but Buddy broke out. A few minutes later a Boston Crab almost caused Backlund to submit but he was able to break the hold. The Playboy eventually got the pin after a Piledriver. 10 min 12 secs. END was -6 to -5 in favor of Rose at the time of the pin.

Pedro Morales v Paul Orndorff w/ Manager Bobby Heenan: an excellent match. In the 14th minute Mr. Wonderful executed a finishing Power Slam. Foley counted 1-2- and just before his hand hit the mat for the 3d time, Morales put his foot on the rope. Two moves later, Morales hit Orndorff with a Cannon Ball and this time Foley counted to 3. Morales wins! OR DID HE?!?!? Post-match, Commissioner Buttons reversed the result of the match, stating that Orndorff pinned Morales fair and square in the 14th minute.

Tito Santana v Nick Bockwinkle: Superstar Billy Graham and, who else, Terry Funk jumped Santana on his way to the ring. Santana broke loose with the help of Morales, who was making his way back from the ring at the time. Santana and Morales challenged Superstar and Funk to a match and the latter accepted! We will see that one soon. Bockwinkle dominated. A Sleeper, a Superplex, a Blatant (but somehow unseen by Foley) Choke, another Blatant (and again unseen) Choke, since the first one went over so well, and a Flying Shoulder Smash exhausted Santana. A Piledriver finished him off. 5 min 42 secs. Bockwinkle led +9 to -13 at the time of the pin with Santana failing to execute a single move.

Road Warriors w/ Manager Paul Ellering v East-West Connection: Warriors blocked a sneak attack by the Connection pre-match, increasing their already formidable END. Ellering tired Adonis out by punching him with brass knuckles after Hawk threw Adonis out of the ring. Animal pounded Ventura with a Gut Buster followed by a Gorilla Press Slam. Hawk joined Animal to perform the Doomsday Device and this match was over. 4 min 30 secs

Bruno Sammartino v Superstar Billy Graham w/ Manager Adnan Al Kaissey: Bruno got an early submission attempt with a Sleeper Hold but Graham reached the ropes. In the 12th minute Sammartino hit Superstar with a DDT but the latter kicked out. Superstar had 6 pin/sub attempts, including 4 in the final 4 minutes. The final one came on his 3rd Shoulderbreaker, but before Foley could count to 3, the bell rang. The first time limit draw in the RWF! Another second and Bruno would have been pinned! 20 min

Match Day 29
Boston Music Hall
Boston, MA
Referee = Todd Sinclair

Tony Atlas v Randy Savage: Savage’s pre-match sneak attacked was foiled (costing him 2 END pts). Atlas appropriately opened the match by hitting the Macho Man with a chair. Less than 2 minutes later Savage pummeled Atlas with a steel chair until the locker room emptied to stop the beating. Savage DQ’d. 2 min 6 secs

Dick the Bruiser v Terry Funk: Funk got a pin attempt early after a Bridging German Suplex, but after that it was all Dick the Bruiser. Highlights included a 2d Rope Knee Drop, Headlock & Punches, and Forearm Smash to Chest. Dick got the pin at 9 min 55 secs after a DDT.

Billy Robinson v Ted Dibiase: On MD 24 both wrestlers were counted out brawling in the crowd (Robinson led by 10 pts in END). The first part of this match was back and forth. Robinson dominated the middle portion, executing multiple 2-pt moves, including 2 Backbreakers, a Side Suplex and a German Suplex. Dibiase responded with a couple of Swinging Neckbreakers then tried to attack Robinson with a screwdriver. Robinson blocked it then used the screwdriver on Dibiase. Sinclair DQ’d Robinson! 10 min 28 secs. This grudge is turning into a real feud!

Jimmy Snuka v Roddy Piper: Mr. Saito and a still amped Savage double-teamed Snuka during his pre-match interview (-10 END!!!). Snuka looked like he had a chance when he started with consecutive Flying Body Presses. But a DDT, Piledriver and Sleeper finished Superfly. Pin for Piper at 3 min 9 secs.

UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP BOUT: Rick Martel v Jerry Lawler: An excellent back and forth match. The King was caught using a foreign object, earning his first DQ point, on the first move of the match. Lawler caught Martel in a Small Package early but Martel kicked out. Martel applied a sweet Superplex but Lawler kicked out of the pin attempt. Lawler threw a Fireball in the 11th minute, earning his second DQ point from Sinclair. Jerry followed it up with a Release German Suplex and the referee counted 1-2-3. Jerry Lawler is the inaugural United States Champion! 11 min 41 secs

Dusty Rhodes & Junkyard Dog v King Kong Bundy & Ken Patera w/ Manager Bobby Heenan: See MD 26 for the origin of this one. The adrenaline ran high but the wrestlers were able to keep their distance pre-match. Bundy executed his finishing Bundy Splash early on but JYD got his foot on the ropes at the very last second, narrowly avoiding the 3-count. 5 minutes later, the referee was temporarily knocked out by Bundy, who teamed with Patera to attack Dusty while Heenan grappled with JYD (-10 END for Dusty!). An Atlantic City Avalanche soon after looked like the end for the faces but Rhodes managed to kick out. JYD took advantage of an opportunity against Patera and battered the strongman with a series of 2-pt moves, including a Backbreaker, and went for the pin, but Bundy stormed into the ring to break it up. At the end, KKB had 2 straight pin attempts on JYD but the Dog kicked out of both before tagging out. Dusty roared into the ring and applied a Piledriver, getting the quick count pin against the behemoth. 21 min 33 secs. Post-match, JYD and Dusty cut a brilliant promo.
