Match Day 40
Silver Stadium
Rochester, NY
Referee = Tom “Rocky” Stone

“Unpredictable Predictability”

Ricky Steamboat v Mr. Saito: the Dragon had 2 pin attempts early with a Quick Roll Up Pin and after a jumping Judo Chop but couldn’t keep Saito down. The heel threw salt in Steamboat’s eyes then executed a Step Over Toe Hold before snapping and pummeling both Ricky and Rocky with a steel chair. DQ for Saito. 6 min 9 secs

Dean Ambrose v Curt Hennig w/ Manager Bobby Heenan: the Upstate NY crowd gave some love to Ambrose upon his entrance (+2 Heat). Hennig was quick out of the gate with a Swinging Knee Lift and Superplex + pin attempt, but Ambrose kicked out. Ambrose caught Hennig in a Quick Pin Move with a Fist Full of Tights but Curt got his foot on the ropes. Hennig tried a Quick Roll Up Pin but Ambrose managed to kick out at the very last second. The use of a foreign object, unseen by the referee, tired out Hennig. 2 moves later, Ambrose got Hennig with a DDT and the pin. 6 min 17 secs

Dusty Rhodes v Ric Flair: the return of Flair! Tom Selleck was at ringside and got involved in the pre-match jawing (+1 Heat to both). Dusty got in a Body Slam to open the match but Flair dominated the rest of the way, hitting the Dream with Flair Chops in the Corner, exhausting him with a Figure 4 Leglock, getting a pin attempt after a 2nd series of Flair Chops, and finishing Rhodes off with a 2nd Figure 4. 6 min 37 secs. Flair was 0-3 before his Japanese hiatus and has clearly come back a different wrestler.

Tito Santana & Pedro Morales v Superstar Billy Graham & Terry Funk: The Kangaroos, a new tag team, appeared ringside pre-match to cheer on Santana/Morales (+1 END). Their presence did not help as Funk caught Morales in a Quick Roll Up Pin on the second move and got the 3 count. Unbelievable! 1 min 3 secs

Hulk Hogan v Stan Hansen: if the pressure was on Hogan to replicate Flair’s triumph, it certainly did not show. Except for a couple of Eye Gouges by Hansen, Hogan dominated the match. Both wrestlers spilled out of the ring early and as Stone began his count-out, Greg Valentine hit him with a cowbell. The match continued with Todd Sinclair as referee. An Atomic Drop set up by a Big Boot resulted in a pin and victory for Hogan. Post-match, Superstar Billy Graham joined Hansen to beat up Hogan. This commentator predicts a Graham/Hogan matchup very soon. Hell hath no fury like Hulk Hogan, brother

WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP BOUT: Champion Junkyard Dog v Nick Bockwinkel: Bockwinkel attacked JYD during the latter’s pre-match interview, choking him with his own chain (-6 END)! JYD began the match tired, and proceeded to bed as Bockwinkel caught him in a Sleeper right away. The referee called for the bell and Nick Bockwinkel is the new Retro Wrestling Federation World Heavyweight Champion! 36 secs

Match Day 41
Providence Civic Center
Providence, RI
Referee = Red Shoes Unno

Jimmy Snuka v Roddy Piper: a rematch from MD 29 when Mr. Saito and Randy Savage attacked Snuka during his pre-match interview (-10 END!). Snuka understandably lost the match. Here, Piper tried to use pepper spray on Snuka as he made his entrance, but Superfly was ready and took it away from Piper and used it himself (-4 END Piper). The actual match started well, with Piper opening with a Suplex and Snuka countering with a Quick Roll Up Pin (Roddy kicked out) and a Flying Body Splash. Terry Funk then entered the ring, swung a branding iron at Snuka, who ducked, and bashed Piper, who was knocked out. Snuka chased Funk from the ring and pinned the unconcscious Piper. 1 min 47 secs

Magnum TA v Terry Funk: Magnum dominated the 1st half of the match, including executing back to back Belly-to-Belly Suplexes, both of which Funk kicked out of at the very last second (for example, on the 2d one, 1-10 on the 20-sided die was a pin, and I rolled an 11). Funk also kicked out of a Small Package. Funk was able to get a sub attempt on an early Boston Crab, but TA reached the ropes. Funk made a comeback in the 2nd half, executing a German Suplex and Hip Toss back to back, and exhausting Magnum with a 2nd German Suplex. Magnum got out of that pin attempt and reached the ropes after Funk hit him with a Piledriver. A Fireman’s Carry resulted in another pin attempt on Funk, which he easily kicked out of. Finally, Magnum hit Funk with a chair, unseen by Unno, and covered him for the pin, which Funk complained was a Quick Count. Excellent match! 12 min 54 secs

Kerry Von Erich v Leon White: Seth Rollins performed a Finishing Curb Stomp on Von Erich on the ramp pre-match. Kerry couldn’t make it to the ring and was counted out! Rollins loves feuds (on MD 39 he lost the Steel Cage match against Inoki, the 3rd match between those two) and it looks like he started another one here!

Wahoo McDaniel v Sgt. Slaugher w/ Manager Alfred Hayes: certainly not a technician’s match, but exciting as hell! Wahoo opened with a Quick Roll Up Pin but Slaughter kicked out. Slaughter responded by bashing McDaniel with a foreign object, which Red Shoes spotted and took away. Former Heavyweight Champion Stan Hansen climbed onto the apron soon after and distracted Unno, allowing Slaughter to use a different foreign object on Wahoo, exhausting him (-10 END!). A Boston Crab and Slaughter Bomb resulted in unsuccessful sub/pin attempts. McDaniel fought valiantly, catching and exhausting the veteran in an Indian Sleeper, but Slaughter got to the ropes. A 2nd bash with the foreign object, again unseen, earned Slaughter another pin attempt but Wahoo kicked out. The crowd was screaming for Red Shoes to check Slaughter but apparently he didn’t hear them. McDaniel hit Slaughter with a chair while the referee was distracted, earning huge cheers from the crowd, but Slaughter kicked out of the pin attempt. Slaughter responded by pulling the unseen foreign object from his trunks for a 3rd time, and this time got the pinfall. 8 min 58 secs. 16 of the END pts lost by Wahoo were as a result of Slaughter’s use of foreign objects.

High Flyers v Minnesota Wrecking Crew: the Crew opened with a Forearm Smash Combo, then Greg Gagne responded with 3 straight moves, including an Armdrag and Release German Suplex. The rest of the match was literally all Wrecking Crew. Lars Anderson tagged out and Ole introduced himself with a Gutwrench Suplex. Ole Anderson got a pin attempt with a Piledriver but Gagne got his shoulder up. A second Forearm Smash Combo doubleteam move tired out Gagne. A Double Running Lariat earned another pin attempt but Jim Brunzell raced into the ring and broke it up. A 2nd Gutwrench Suplex and 2nd Double Running Lariat exhausted Gagne and allowed Ole to get the pin. 5 min 38 secs. Gagne was never able to tag Brunzell and was -12 END compared to +5 for Lars and +10 for Ole.

STEEL CAGE GRUDGE MATCH- Brock Lesnar v Harley Race- quick history: (1) on MD 30 Race inadvertently slugged Lesnar with a souvenir baseball bat; (2) on MD 34 Race pummeled Lesnar pre-match with a cowbell then was DQ’d in the match proper when he was joined by 2 others to gang up on Lesnar; and (3) on MD 38 the 2 wrestled to a time-limit draw. No time limit in this one but it didn’t matter as the match was decided quickly when Race got the pin after a Diving Headbutt at 4 min 3 secs.

Match Day 42
Civic Center
Roanoke, VA
Referee = Brian Hebner

Tito Santana v Randy Savage: the Macho Man opened well with the 1st 3 moves, including a Stalling Suplex and Back Body Drop. But Santana made 4 out of the next 5 moves, including his finishing Figure 4 Leglock. And though Savage got out of it, he could not kick out of the subsequent pin attempt. 4 min 3 secs

Tony Atlas v Buddy Rose: on MD 32 Rose joined Savage to intimidate the referee in Savage’s match against Atlas. Mr. USA sought and earned some revenge here, getting the pin at 4 min 7 secs after a DDT.

Pedro Morales v The Sheik: a long excellent match, controlled mostly by Morales, who led in pin/sub attempts 9 to 4. Morales almost got the pin at the opening with a Quick Roll Up but the Sheik kicked out at the very last second. The Sheik then tried the same maneuver, albeit with a Fist Full of tights, but Morales kicked out. Morales tried a Boston Crab and exhausted the Sheik with a Cannon Ball, but couldn’t get the sub or pin. A Cross Body Block almost resulted in a pin but again the Sheik kicked out at the very last moment. The Sheik earned a sub attempt with a Boston Crab but Morales reached the ropes. A second Cross Body Block by Morales resulted in another pin attempt but the Sheik got his foot on the ropes. The Sheik hurt Pedro with a DDT but couldn’t get the pin. A Cannon Ball by Morales looked like the end but again the Sheik got his foot on the ropes. The Sheik then executed 5 out of 6 moves, including a Turnbuckle Ram and finishing Camel Clutch, and looked like he might steal the match, but Morales reached the ropes. Morales then executed in order another Cannon Ball (Sheik kicked out again at the last second), Repeated Punches to Face (Sheik kicked out) and another Boston Crab. This time the slippery Sheik could not escape and was forced to submit at 14 min 55 secs. Tito Santana joined his tag team partner in the ring post-match and the 2 beat down the Sheik.

Hacksaw Duggan v Superstar Billy Graham w/ Manager Adnan Al Kaissey: Curt Hennig appeared ringside and slipped Superstar a roll of quarters in the 2nd minute. Graham immediately slugged Duggan with them (-6 END!). Superstar thought that was so good that he did it again, but this time was caught by Hebner, probably because the roll busted open and the mat was covered with quarters (Superstar earned 1 DQ pt). A Powerbomb set up by a Side Headlock got the early pin for Graham at 3 min 36 secs.

Kerry Von Erich & Magnum TA v the Hart Foundation w/ Manager Jimmy Hart: a dream tag team against the debutante Hart Foundation. Von Erich executed the 1st 5 moves of the match (all 1 pointers) before Jimmy Hart threw salt in his eyes. A finishing Hart Attack tired out Von Erich but he was able to kick out of Jim Neidhart’s pin attempt. Brett Hart then tagged in and executed 4 consecutive moves, exhausting Von Erich, and earning pin attempts after a Pendulum Backbreaker and the use of an unseen foreign object. Von Erich kicked out of the first but not the second, and the Hart Foundation were victorious. 5 min 39 secs

UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP BOUT: Ricky Steamboat v Champion Tommy Rich: a rematch of MD 37 when Rich pinned Steamboat and took his title after hitting him with a chair. This match went back and forth and was even on END pts after 10 minutes, though Rich led at that time in pin/sub attempts 4 to 1(Rich had ones with 2 Small Packages, a Boston Crab and a Figure 4, and Steamboat had one with a Boston Crab of his own). Rich’s Boston Crab came the closest to ending the match but Ricky broke the hold just before it looked like he was through. At the 10 minute mark the champion took over, executing the final 4 maneuvers, including a Stalling Suplex that exhausted Steamboat and a Piledriver that finished him off. 11 min 49 secs. Rich is the 1st US Champion to successfully defend his title!

Match Day 43
Bayfront Center Arena
St. Petersburg, FL
Referee = Drake Wuertz

“Who is more out of control?”

Rick Martel v Greg Valentine: the Hammer got in a Neckbreaker early and a Back Elbow Smash, but that was about it as Martel dominated. Martel exhausted Valentine and almost pinned him at the 7 min mark after a Piledriver, but Valentine got his foot on the ropes at the last second. A Boston Crab less than 2 minutes later caused Valentine to submit. 8 min 53 secs. Martel led +3 to -14 in END at the time of the submission.

Otto Wanz v Gene Kiniski: Gene dominated this short match, tiring out Otto with a Backbreaker and following it up with a Fireman’s carry and Stalling Suplex. A second Backbreaker exhausted Big Otto and allowed Kiniski to get the pin. 4 min 30 secs

Dick the Bruiser v Don Muraco w/ Manager Saul Creatchman: Dick slipped and fell during his entrance (-3 END), but he still made quick work of the Magnificent one here, getting the pin on his 1st attempt after a 2nd Rope Knee Drop. Muraco claimed a quick count (1-9, rolled a 9). 5 min 36 secs

Bruno Sammartino v Iron Sheik: this was an interesting match. Bruno came out of the gate hot, executing a pair of Atomic Drops and a Shoulder Block (with Post-Match Event-oh oh). The Sheik then executed 5 moves in a row, including 2 Front Suplexes and a Camel Clutch. Sammartino used his savvy to get out of the Clutch, and 2 ½ minutes later resorted to the same after a 2nd Camel Clutch. A 3rd and final Camel Clutch earned the victory for the Iron Sheik at 8 min 9 secs. Or did it?! The Commissioner reversed the result of the match, saying the Iron Sheik was illegally choking Sammartino with the Camel Clutch and should have been DQ’d by the referee. Needless to say, the Iron Sheik was apoplectic and chased Commissioner Buttons up the ramp and out of the arena. The Commissioner’s helicopter whirled away just as the Iron Sheik was closing in.

Verne Gagne v Larry Zbyszko w/ Manager Paul Dangerously: look for this one on ESPN Classic soon as it was an absolute gem! Wuertz was inadvertently hit in the 1st minute during a whip to the ropes and was replaced by the notoriously face-friendly Connie Marker. In the 4th minute Zbyszko executed a Shoulder Breaker and went for the pin but Verne got his foot on the ropes. Gagne responded with a Small Package but Zbyszko escaped. In the 9th minute Zbyszko had 3 straight pin attempts after 2 more Shoulder Breakers and a series of punches while Dangerously distracted Marker. Verne barely escaped the latter, kicking out of the pin attempt at the very last second. Zbyszko led +1 to -16 END at this point. Gagne then executed the next 4 maneuvers, including a Minnesota Body Slam and a pair of Sleepers, cutting the END deficit to only 4 pts but failing to get a pin or sub (Zbyszko got his foot on the ropes at the last second after the 2nd Sleeper). Zbyszko applied an Abdominal Stretch but Gagne reached the ropes just before it looked like he would submit. A Release German Suplex by Gagne earned another pin attempt but Larry kicked out. Finally, a Blatant Choke by Zbyszko, unseen by Marker, allowed him to get a quick count pin on Gagne. 15 min 7 secs

WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP BOUT: Champion Road Warriors w/ Manager Paul Ellering v Minnesota Wrecking Crew: Lars Anderson got caught with a foreign object early on by Marker and earned a DQ pt. He got a pin attempt after a DDT but Hawk kicked out. Ole tagged in and the Crew executed a Forearm Smash Combo. Ole followed it up by bashing Hawk with a chair, for which he earned a DQ pt. Animal tagged in and executed a sweet Gorilla Press Slam. Ole tagged out. Lars executed a Shoulder Breaker then earned his 2nd DQ pt and the team’s 3rd for a Thumb to the Throat. Lars caught Animal in a Quick Roll Up Pin but Animal kicked out. Animal then blocked Lars’s use of a foreign object and used it himself. Marker DQ’d the Road Warriors! 8 min 9 secs. Not that they were to blame for this one, but this is the 3rd straight match in which the Warriors retained their belts despite or maybe because they were DQ’d. To this commentator, that is unacceptable and unbefitting champions!

Match Day 44
Reunion Arena
Dallas, TX
Referee = Johnny Shorn

“An eye for an eye, a cane for a cane”

Antonio Inoki v Jesse Ventura: the Body talked trash to the ringside fans as he entered the ring, but stumbled as he made his way through the ropes, eliciting plenty of laughs. Inoki both dominated the match and continued the theme of making the crowd laugh, twice executing Enzuigiri (chop to the back of the head) as well as hitting Ventura with a Big Slap. Inoki caught Jesse in consecutive Boston Crabs, the 1st of which he broke just in time. The 2nd forced him to submit. 5 min 42 secs

Jack Brisco v Mongolian Stomper: the Stomper was joined by Gene Kiniski pre-match and the two intimidated Shorn (+5 END). Nevertheless, Brisco executed a perfect Bridging German Suplex and got the quick count pin at 1 min 41 secs.

King Kong Brody v King Kong Bundy w/ Manager Bobby Heenan: the battle of King Kongs! Bundy set the tone by smashing Brody with a chair. Brody executed a couple of Elbow Smashes to the Throat, bit Bundy’s forehead and even managed a legitimate maneuver, a Flying Legdrop. He got 3 pin attempts, after a Quick Roll Up Pin, a DDT and a Quick Roll Up Pin with a Fist Full of Tights, but couldn’t keep Bundy pinned. An In-Match Event decided the match, as Brody discovered Bundy’s foreign object ( a horseshoe), KO’d Bundy, and got the easy pin. 5 min 49 secs

Crusher v Sgt. Slaughter w/ Manager Alfred Hayes: on MD36 Slaughter pinned Crusher after Hayes disabled him with his cane just over 2 minutes into the match. Crusher would not be denied here, opening with a DDT (Slaughter kicked out of the pin) and Sleeper (Slaughter reached ropes). He followed that up by grabbing Hayes’s cane and walloping the veteran, knocking him out, and covering for the 3-count. 1 min 39 secs

The Kangaroos v Original Midnight Express: a long, excellent, back-and-forth match with 7 pin/sub attempts for each tag team. In the 7th minute, Harley Race entered the ring brandishing a tire iron. He attempted to bash Don Kent but inadvertently hit Randy Rose (-15 END!!!). In the 25th minute Kent and Al Costello executed the Boomerang but Rose managed to kick out at the very last second. Kent followed it up with a Sleeper but Rose broke the hold just in the nick of time (rolled within the SUB range but also rolled a 6 which meant he broke hold). Rose tagged out immediately after and he and Dennis Condrey dominated the rest of the way, executing in order a Doubleteam Face Slam, a Diving Leg Takedown and a Rocket Launcher to get the pin. 27 min 18 secs. The Express got the win, but at a cost as Dr. Brenda Buttons revealed that her post-match examination of Rose revealed an injury, caused by the tire iron, that would take 1 month to heal. Also, Don Muraco entered the ring post-match and joined in a beating of the fallen Kangaroos.

Junkyard Dog v Ric Flair: the former Heavyweight Champion against the up-and-coming Flair. The Nature Boy showed both his technical side, with maneuvers such as the Snap Mare and Neckbreaker, and his dirty side, twice using a foreign object (belt buckle). The 1st pin attempt came after a Figure 4 Leglock, in which an exhausted JYD managed to get his foot on the ropes just before the 3 count. Flair followed it up by punching JYD with the belt buckle for the 2nd time, unseen by the referee, but JYD kicked out of the subsequent pin attempt at the last second. JYD managed to get the object from Flair and used it himself (-8 END!). JYD then executed 3 Clotheslines and a Backbreaker but couldn’t manage a pin attempt. A 2nd Figure 4 Leglock by the Nature Boy allowed him to get the pin at 9 min 41 secs. Flair led -4 to -18 in END at the time of the pin. Perhaps upset by Flair’s cheating, JYD jumped Flair as he was posing for the fans post-match and beat him senseless (-2 Heat for JYD).

Match Day 45
Oklahoma City Music Hall
Oklahoma City, OK
Referee = Ralph Hamilton

Billy Robinson v Mr. Saito: Robinson’s 1st match since MD 33 (on MD 34 he was injured when he tried to rescue Brock Lesnar from a Don Muraco/Gene Kiniski/Harley Race beatdown). Here, Robinson executed in order 2 Abdominal Stretches, Body Scissors, a Backbreaker and a Boston Crab, for which he got Saito’s submission. 2 min 33 secs

Jumbo Tsuruta v Leon White: Tsuruta’s pre-match interview was interrupted by the Iron Sheik promoting his own upcoming Steel Cage grudge match against Bruno Sammartino. A solid match in which each grappler got some licks in. Jumbo tired out White with a German Suplex and Jumbo Lariat then got the 1st pin/sub attempt with an Abdominal Stretch (White reached the ropes). 3 minutes later Tsuruta applied a Boston Crab but White broke the hold. Leon responded with his finisher, the Big Splash, but Jumbo got his foot on the ropes. Tsuruta applied a 2nd Abdominal Stretch and a Figure 4 Leglock but couldn’t get White to give in. A Body Slam by White exhausted Tsuruta and appeared to catch him by surprise, and Hamilton quickly counted to 3 for the pin (pin 1-7, rolled 7). 11 min 30 secs. White was down -13 to -8 END at the time of the pin.

Kerry Von Erich v Seth Rollins: on MD 41 Rollins KO’d Von Erich with a Curb Stomp on the entrance ramp before the latter’s match with Leon White (Von Erich never made it to the ring). This match may not have settled the score but no fan was asking for his money back. The match was back and forth, with 5 pin/sub attempts for Kerry and 4 for Seth. Beginning in the 4th minute, Von Erich executed 8 out of the next 9 moves, including hitting Rollins with a chair THREE TIMES, rolling him up in a Small Package (kick out), twice hitting him with a Short-Arm Clothesline and applying the Iron Claw (Rollins escaped). A 2nd Rope Kneedrop exhausted Rollins and gave Von Erich a 2nd pin attempt but Rollins kicked out again. Seth turned the tide and exhausted Von Erich with a Single Underhook DDT, a Curb Stomp, and a Diving Splash, all of which Von Erich kicked out of. A Body Slam followed up by a 2nd Iron Claw looked like the end but Rollins reached the ropes. He then caught Von Erich in a Sleeper and when the latter could not break free Hamilton called for the bell and ruled the match a submission victory for Rollins. 14 mins

Magnum TA v Jerry Lawler: Magnum slipped and fell during his entrance (-3 END). In the 4th minute Greg Valentine entered the ring, botched his interference, and clocked Lawler with a chair (-10 END). After chasing the Hammer from the ring, Magnum covered an exhausted King for an easy pin. 3 min 29 secs

Midnight Rockers v Ox & Baron: the Rockers opened the match with the 1st 5 maneuvers, a Double Team Suplex, Shawn Michaels’s Flying Elbow and Flying Body Press, a Double Drop Kick and a single Dropkick by Michaels. A very tired Ox Baker was fortunate to tag out but a Rocker Dropper allowed the faces to get the 1st pin attempt (Baron Von Rashke got his shoulder up). The Baron responded with a Boot to the Face, which dazed Marty Jannetty, but he kicked out of the pin attempt at the very last second. The next 10 minutes went back and forth, with the best moments being a Powerbomb by the Baron, a Double back Body Drop by the Rockers and a Superplex by Michaels. Neither side could get the pin though. During this period the Baron earned 2 DQ pts for hitting Jannetty with a chair and for a Doubleteam Back Rake. Those infractions would come back to haunt Ox & Baron as the latter went one time too many to the well, bashing Jannetty again with a chair in the 22nd minute, earning the DQ from the stickler Hamilton. 21 min 24 secs.

Hulk Hogan v Big John Studd w/ Manager Bobby Heenan: in a match lasting 10 min 35 secs, Studd managed a grand total of 3 maneuvers. Hogan had unsuccessful pin/sub attempts with a Quick Roll Up Pin with a Fist Full of Tights, 3 Bear Hugs, a Stalling Suplex and a Powerbomb. The devious Heenan then earned his keep by using an unseen object to disable Hogan, allowing Studd to cover him for the pin! Hulk led +5 to -17 in END at the time of the pin and was totally dominating the match. Hogan was furious after the bout but Studd and Heenan got out of dodge and back to the dressing room in a hurry.

Official Rankings # 6
Calculated after MD 45 and confirmed by the scrupulous Arthur Andersen

(1) World Heavyweight Champion Nick Bockwinkel (2)
(2) United State Champion Tommy Rich (4)
(3) Dick the Bruiser (9)
(4) Dean Ambrose (10)
(5) Antonio Inoki (NR)
(6) Dusty Rhodes (5)
(7) Junkyard Dog (1)
(Cool Stan Hansen (3)
(9) Ricky Steamboat (6)
(10) Jack Brisco (NR)

US Champ Contenders:
(1) Dean Ambrose (3)
(2) Ricky Steamboat (1)
(3) Jack Brisco (NR)
(4) Gene Kiniski (NR)
(5) Jimmy Snuka (NR)
(6) Jerry Lawler (2)
(7) Rick Martel (NR)

Tag Teams
(1) World Tag Team Champions The Road Warriors
(2) British Bulldogs
(3) Minnesota Wrecking Crew
(4) Original Midnight Express

In parentheses to the right of the wrestler is his previous ranking. NR is Not Ranked.

Other Notes: for Official Rankings # 5 there were only 3 US Champ Contenders listed. Official Rankings # 6 is the inaugural rankings for tag teams.
There was a lot of movement in the rankings as many of the top 10 wrestlers from Official Rankings # 5 lost. Dusty Rhodes only dropped 1 slot despite losing to Ric Flair (who also beat another top 10 wrestler JYD, so expect to see him ranked soon if he keeps winning) because 2 wrestlers above him and 3 wrestlers below him all lost.

Announcements:
(1) Ken Patera, John Cena and the British Bulldogs have all returned from injury.

(2) Commissioner Buttons has completely ensconced his RWF office desk with cardboard, including a cut-out door.

(3) The Federation announced the cards for the next 3 Match Days.

(a) MD 46 features a double main event, with the British Bulldogs battling the Minnesota Wrecking Crew for the right to face the World Tag Team Champion Road Warriors, and Dick the Bruiser challenging Nick Bockwinkel for the World Heavyweight Championship.

(b) Wrestling fans will love MD 47, when 2 US Championship contenders meet, Jimmy Snuka and Gene Kiniski, Bret Hart makes his singles debut against Tony Atlas, the American Dream Dusty Rhodes faces Handsome Harley Race in a match specifically designed for the ladies, and Bruno Sammartino meets the Iron Sheik in a Steel Cage Grudge match.

(c) John Cena returns on MD 48 to face Brock Lesnar. Adrian Adonis will wrestle his former tag team partner, Jesse Ventura. And the Rock & Roll Express will battle the Freebirds. And that is just the tip of the iceberg! Antonio Inoki v Ric Flair!!! A victory for the latter moves him into the top 10 while an Inoki win would certainly push him very close to the top of the rankings. Finally, the US Championship is at stake as Champion Tommy Rich defends against Jack Brisco.

That is all the wrestling news for now. Think of baseball and not these upcoming matches if you are trying to delay anything, as MDs 46-48 will do nothing to dull your excitement!

Match Day 46
Red Rocks Amphitheater
Morrison, CO
Referee = Tom Hamilton

Ricky Steamboat v Randy Savage: the bout was even after 4 min 30 secs but then the Dragon Body Slammed Savage and pinned him after a finishing Flying Body Press (the 1st pin/sub attempt of the match). 5 min 33 secs. Another disappointing loss for the Macho Man.

Hacksaw Duggan v Curt Hennig w/ Manager Bobby Heenan: on MD 42 Hennig was ringside for the Duggan/Billy Graham match when he passed Superstar a roll of quarters, which he used twice. Here, Mr. Saito and Gene Kiniski jumped the unpopular [at least with the heels] Hacksaw pre-match. Duggan was able to fight them off (Duggan and an unnamed partner will face Saito and Kiniski in a tag team bout on MD 50). In the actual bout, Hennig snapped early and battered Duggan with a steel chair, also nailing Hamilton, earning the immediate DQ at 1 min 41 secs.

Dean Ambrose v Larry Zbyszko w/ Manager Paul Dangerously: this match got crazy at the outset! Dangerously tossed a phone to his client and Zbyszko used it to smash Ambrose on the side of the face (-4 END). Ambrose responded with a Superplex and Piledriver. Zbyszko knocked out the referee and applied a series of illegal maneuvers before Hamilton recovered (-10 END!!!). Dangerously tossed the phone again but Ambrose intercepted it and used it on Zbyszko (-4 END). Ambrose evened the match up with a 2nd Superplex but Zbyszko dominated the rest of the way, finishing the 4th ranked Ambrose off with a Boston Crab. 8 min 11 secs. Zbyszko has beaten Verne Gagne and now Ambrose in his last 2 matches.

Bob Backlund v Stan Hansen: an excellent back and forth match. Hansen opened with a Quick Roll Up Pin but Backlund got his foot on the ropes. Hansen hit Backlund twice with a Branding Iron early on (earning 1 DQ pt). Backlund responded with an Atomic Drop and German Suplex. Hansen came close to getting a submission in the 8th minute with a Boston Crab but Backlund reached the ropes at the last second. A subsequent Punch to the Groin earned a 2nd DQ pt for Hansen. Backlund got a pin attempt after a Rolling Bridge but couldn’t keep Hansen’s shoulders on the mat. Backlund caught the Bad Man from Borger in a Sleeper but he reached the ropes. The subsequent Release Suplex was devastating though, and Backlund got the pin on the former World Heavyweight Champion, who is drifting further and further away from his glory days. 11 min 55 secs

British Bulldogs v Minnesota Wrecking Crew: winner gets another title shot against the Road Warriors! The sole pin/sub attempt came at the 5 min mark, when Ole Anderson made a Quick Pin Move with a fist full of Davey Boy Smith’s tights, but Smith kicked out at the very last second (1-7 pin, rolled Cool. The Bulldogs dominated the rest of the way and were in fact ahead a combined +14 to -3 END when the Kid complained to Hamilton about the Crew’s dirty tactics, Lars Anderson pushed the Kid into Hamilton, and Hamilton DQ’d the Bulldogs! 10 min 6 secs. A Warriors/Crew rematch is set!

WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP BOUT: Dick the Bruiser v Champion Nick Bockwinkel: the Bruiser was attacked pre-match by a new wrestler, Tully Blanchard (-6 END!), tiring out Dick before the match even started! The champ dominated the match, with 8 pin/sub attempts to 0 for the challenger. Bockwinkel got the pin at 8 min 27 secs with a finishing Piledriver.

Match Day 47
Long Beach Arena
Long Beach, CA
Referee = Bruno Lauer

Tony Atlas v Bret Hart w/ Manager Gary Hart: a dominant debut (as a singles wrestler) for Bret, who led +2 to -16 in END at the time of the pin after a Snap Suplex. Hart also had pin/sub attempts after 2 Boston Crabs and a Piledriver. 12 min 12 secs

Rick Martel v Ken Patera w/ Manager Bobby Heenan: Martel blocked a pre-match sneak attack by Patera (+3 END) then proceeded to execute the 1st 6 moves, including consecutive Airplane Spins. The discombobulated Olympian was given a chance to recover when Mr. Saito entered the squared circle and DDT’d Martel. While Lauer called for the DQ and bell, Saito and Patera brutally beat Martel. Dr. Brenda Buttons was on hand to thoroughly examine Martel and said that she would provide around-the-clock care and that she and her nurses would have him back in the ring within a couple of weeks. 3 min 36 secs

Jimmy Snuka v Gene Kiniski: a true classic! This even battle featured 12 pin/sub attempts (7 for Snuka). Superfly had the 1st 2 after 2 early Superplexes. Kiniski had 2 pin attempts after Backbreakers, and another after exhausting Snuka with a Fireman’s Carry. Superfly had another pin attempt and exhausted Kiniski less than 2 minutes later with a Diving Headbutt. Kiniski’s Canadian Press and 3rd Backbreaker still weren’t enough to pin Snuka. The subsequent pin attempt after a Snuka Brain Claw looked good but Kiniski kicked out at the very last second (1-8, rolled 9). Snuka evened the match on END at -17 at the 15 minute mark with another Diving Headbutt, then executed the final 2 moves of the match, a Sleeper and a 3rd Diving Headbutt, which resulted in a pinfall. 16 min 14 secs. If everything shakes out in his favor over the next week, Snuka could find himself in the top 10 and as the top contender for the US belt.

Dusty Rhodes v Harley Race: Race executed the opening 4 moves, including Mounted Punches and an Elbow Smash. But as Dusty was complaining to Lauer, Race hit him from behind, knocking the Dream into Lauer, who proceeded to DQ Dusty. 2 min 30 secs. A rematch is predicted between these 2 veterans.

Pedro Morales & Tito Santana v The Butchers: a grudge match dating back to MD 42 when Santana joined his partner in a post-match beatdown of the Sheik. The Butchers dominated a short match here, never allowing Morales to tag in. The Sheik almost pinned Santana after using a hidden foreign object, but Tito got his foot on the ropes at the last possible second. A subsequent Turnbuckle Ram was enough though, as Morales was met by Abdullah and an exhausted Santana succumbed to the pinfall. 5 min 7 secs. Something about payback…

STEEL CAGE GRUDGE MATCH: Bruno Sammartino v Iron Sheik: we all remember MD 42 when the Iron Sheik seemingly defeated Sammartino with a Camel Clutch only to see Commissioner Buttons reverse the result, saying the Iranian was choking Bruno and should have been DQ’d. But you may not recall that in the very 1st match of the RWF, Sammartino was DQ’d after grabbing and using the Iron Sheik’s foreign object. So the bad blood between these 2 goes way back. The Iron Sheik dominated the opening minutes, bloodying Sammartino when he whipped him into the cage multiple times. The 1st pin attempt came in the 9th minute after a Stalling Suplex, but an exhausted Sammartino got his shoulder off the mat. 2 moves later Sammartino applied a Bear Hug but a tired Iron Sheik broke the hold. Sammartino then fought off consecutive Camel Clutches. A Kick to the Throat resulted in another pin attempt but Bruno kicked out. Finally, the Iron Sheik rammed Sammartino’s head into the cage and got the 3 count from Lauer. Post-match, the Mongolian Stomper and Stan Hansen joined the Iron Sheik in the cage and announced that they had agreed to form a gang! 12 min 51 secs

Match Day 48
Greek Theatre, University of California
Berkeley, CA
Referee = Tim Fuller

Adrian Adonis v Jesse Ventura: the 1st time in the ring together for these 2 since Adonis turned face and broke up the East-West Connection on MD 34. Ric Flair and Seth Rollins showed what they thought of Adonis’s turn during his interview when they double-teamed him (-10 END!!!). It took less than 3 minutes of match time for Ventura to exhaust Adonis thanks to an Inverted Body Vice (Adonis kicked out). The Body followed it up with a Boston Crab but Adonis reached the ropes. 2 minutes later Adrian slammed his former tag team partner through the announcer’s table (-8 END!!!). Adonis exhausted Ventura with a Sleeper then applied it again only to have Ventura break the hold just in the nick of time (1-7 Sub, rolled 6, but also 6 on 6-sided die). Ventura had pin attempts after a Powerbomb and Knee to the Back, and Adonis after a Low Blow, but neither could get the pin. Finally, Ventura executed consecutive Piledrivers and got the 3 count from Fuller. 10 min 37 secs. An examination from Chief Medical Officer Dr. Brenda Buttons revealed that Ventura hurt his shoulder (probably from being slammed through the table) and would need 3 weeks to recover.

John Cena v Brock Lesnar: a quick match featuring 5 2+ point moves from Lesnar and only 1 from Cena. Lesnar got the pin after a finishing F-5. 6 min 6 secs

King Kong Brody v Superstar Billy Graham w/ Manager Adnan Al Kaissey: Brody offered a pre-match handshake and Graham replied with a Piledriver (-5 END!!!). The match ended quickly after a Superstar Bear Hug, when he got the pin. 2 min 39 secs

Antonio Inoki v Ric Flair: great anticipation for this match and it did not disappoint, so long as you weren’t cheering for anyone in particular. The match went 20 minutes and ended in a time limit draw. Flair led -17 to -30 END at the 20 minute mark. He also had 7 pin/sub attempts to 5 for Inoki. At the 11 minute mark the Nature Boy almost got the pin after a Piledriver but Inoki kicked out at the very last second (1-4, rolled 5). In the 14th minute the match was tied at -9 END. Flair then went up with 2 Figure 4 Leglocks and another Piledriver but couldn’t get the pin. Inoki then got 3 straight pin attempts with a Diving Knee Drop, a Hit w/ a Chair, and an Enzuigiri (kick to the back of the head) but Flair wouldn’t stay down. Flair applied another Figure 4 (Inoki reached ropes) and a Sleeper but the time limit expired. Great match without a resolution.

Rock & Roll Express v Fabulous Freebirds w/ Valet Precious: Ricky Morton caught Michael Hayes in an early Quick Roll Up Pin and Terry Gordy in a Boston Crab but could coax neither the pin nor the submission. The Freebirds executed consecutive Doubleteam Moves (Forearm Smash Combo, Atomic Drop/Reverse Atomic Drop Combo) to tire out Morton. The Freebirds repeated the Atomic Drop Doubleteam move when Gordy tagged out. Hayes then dominated the rest of the way. Robert Gibson was exhausted after back to back Fabulous Freebird Spike Piledrivers, but somehow avoided the pin. He kicked out 2 more times after a Slingshot Suplex and Running Knee Smash. Morton tagged in only to be met with a Double DDT and pin. 11 min 21 secs

UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP BOUT: Jack Brisco v Champion Tommy Rich: Brisco opened with a 2 pt Hip Toss then the pair took it into the crowd and were counted out by Fuller. 1 min 3 secs. Rich retained the belt but earned no new fans after this quick and disappointing finish.

Match Day 49
Cumberland County Civic Center
Portland, ME
Referee = Brad Robinson

Bobo Brazil v Ted Dibiase: Brazil controlled this one from beginning to end, earning an early pin attempt with a Powerbomb (Dibiase kicked out) and pinning the Million Dollar Man after a finishing Piledriver at 7 min 17 secs. At the time of the pin Brazil led +4 to -7 in END.

Pedro Morales v Abdullah the Butcher: on MD 42 Morales defeated the Sheik and participated with tag team partner Tito Santana in a post-match beatdown of the heel. On MD 47 the Sheik got revenge as he and Abdullah dominated and pinned Santana in a tag team bout. Here, Morales dominated in a short match. Robinson was in the act of counting out the grapplers when John Studd disabled him with a foreign object. Referee Tom Foley took over. Morales had pin attempts with a Small Package and Cannon Ball but couldn’t keep Abdullah’s shoulders down. A Release German Suplex exhausted the Butcher and allowed Morales to get the pin. 7 min 15 secs

Wahoo McDaniel v Sgt. Slaughter w/ Manager Alfred Hayes: the 2nd grudge match of the evening, this one dating back to MD 41 when Slaughter pinned McDaniel after pulling out and using an unidentified foreign object for the 3rd time in the match. Here, more craziness as Foley was inadvertently KO’d during a Superplex. Replacement of the replacement referee Dick Wohrle rushed in and reached a 20-count. Double count-out! 2 min 19 secs

Jerry Lawler v Greg Valentine: Lawler was walking on air after being given a big kiss by Loni Anderson at ringside pre-match (+1 Heat, +5 END). That seemed to have won the crowd over and the King seemed to appreciate the cheers. Lawler’s face turn continues. The Hammer earned the 1st pin attempt of the match at the 5 min mark with a Piledriver but Lawler got his shoulder up. Lawler caught Valentine in a small package but the latter kicked out. 2 minutes later a Fireball exhausted Valentine and the subsequent Atomic Drop allowed Lawler to get the 3 count from Wohrle. 8 min 11 secs

Hulk Hogan v John Studd w/ Manager Bobby Heenan: wrestling fans will remember with disgust MD 45 when Hogan absolutely dominated Studd only to have the devious Heenan use an unseen foreign object to disable the Hulkster and allow his client to get the pin. Like last time, Hogan controlled the match, tiring and later exhausting Big John with Suplexes . The Hogan Leg Drop in the 9th minute almost finished Studd off and the Atomic Drop 2 moves later did. Pin for Hogan at 9 min 17 secs. Younger fans are especially enjoying the charismatic and much improved Hogan. A nascent Hulkamania is appearing in the Federation.

WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP NO DQ bout: Champion Road Warriors w/ Manager Paul Ellering v the Minnesota Wrecking Crew: the Warriors have retained their belts 3 matches in a row by being disqualified (twice against the British Bulldogs and once against this Crew). Bret Hart appeared at ringside early and grabbed Animal, but Lars Anderson missed the Warrior and slammed Hart instead. In the 9th minute Ellering bashed Ole Anderson with a steel chair when the latter got whipped to the ropes. A good sequence by Ole began at the 14:30 mark when he executed a Bridging German Suplex, earning the 1st pin attempt of the match (Animal got his shoulder off the mat). Ole followed it up with a Gutwrench Suplex and Bear Hug, earning a 2nd pin attempt, which Hawk broke up. The match went back and forth for about 8 minutes until Ellering for a 2nd time bashed a member of the Crew with a steel chair after being thrown to the ropes, this time Lars. The Warriors followed it up with their finishing Doomsday Device, exhausting Lars, but Ole broke up the pin attempt. A 2nd Doomsday Device in the 26th minute earned another pin attempt but Ole squirmed out. Lars tagged in and caught Hawk in a Bear Hug but the latter broke out of the hold and subsequent pin attempt. The Warriors executed a 3rd and final Doomsday Device at 29:30 but Ole broke up the pin attempt. Soon after the 30 minute time limit was reached and Wohrle called for the bell. Time limit draw!

Match Day 50
The Spectrum
Philadelphia, PA
Referee = Jack Pesek

Bob Backlund v Seth Rollins: Greg Valentine entered the ring in the 2nd minute, apparently turned face, and clocked Rollins (-6 END!!!). Less than 2 minutes later Rollins rolled up Backlund in a Small Package and almost got the pin but Backlund kicked out at the last second. Stan Hanson then entered the ring and DDTd Backlund, causing Pesek to call for the bell and DQ. 3 min 40 secs. Hanson and Rollins brutally beat Backlund. Dr. Brenda Buttons’ examination revealed a 2 week injury.

Tito Santana v Terry Funk: Funk hit Santana with a Low Blow (-5 END) and with a foreign object, but a pair of Suplexes, an Elbow Smash, and finally a Superplex allowed Santana to get the pin. 4 min 36 secs

The Crusher v the Sheik: the Sheik caught Crusher in a Sleeper on the 1st move of the match, and when the latter started to pass out Pesek called for the bell (1-3 SUB, rolled 1). Submission victory for the Sheik at 33 secs.

Magnum TA v Larry Zbyszko: a grudge match (on MD 35 Zbyszko tried to attack Magnum pre-match but the Crusher prevented it. A gang of masked wrestlers, who later we found ot to be the Hart Foundation, battered both early in the match and there was a double count-out). This rematch was yet another quick match on this night, ending on a Quick Roll-Up Pin by Magnum at 49 secs!

Jimmy Snuka v Bret Hart w/ Manager Gary Hart: a marathon compared to the rest of the bill in Philadelphia. Snuka executed 7 of the 1st 9 maneuvers, all of them 2+ pts for Superfly, including an opening Superplex, a Flying Body Splash and a Top Rope Body Press. Gary Hart threw brass knuckles into the ring but Snuka got to them 1st and used them (-10 END!!!). An exhausted Hart kicked out of the subsequent pin attempt and managed to get out of the follow up Brain Claw. Hart fought back and managed 6 straight moves, including a DDT, but couldn’t turn the tide here. Snuka had 4 more pin/sub attempts and finally forced the resilient Hart to submit with a Brain Claw. 14 min 56 secs. Snuka led -5 to -35 END at the time of submission.

Hacksaw Duggan & Roddy Piper v Mr. Saito & Kiniski: another grudge match (see MDs 31, 37, 46) that we will detail next time, since this one ended so quickly and without resolution. Duggan executed a Stalling Suplex and bashed Saito’s head into the turnbuckle until the grapplers took it outside the ring and brawled into the corners of the arena. Double count-out at 1 min 53 secs.

Match Day 51
Miami Arena
Miami, FL
Referee = Larry Lisowski

Billy Robinson v Randy Savage: the Macho Man controlled this one, rolling Robinson up in a Small Package early (Robinson kicked out), executing a Flying Elbow in the 4th minute (Robinson got his shoulder up) and finishing him off with a 2nd Flying Elbow at 7 min 9 secs.

Verne Gagne v Buddy Rose: Gagne warned Lisowski about Rose’s history of dirty tactics. Rose took offense and pushed Gagne into the referee, who DQ’d Gagne! 33 secs

Junkyard Dog v Leon White: a series of JYD Headbutts early allowed JYD to get a pin attempt (White kicked out) but a 2nd series a few minutes later were too much for the rotund White and JYD got the pin. 5 min 14 secs

Ricky Steamboat v Don Muraco w/ Manager Saul Creatchman: Steamboat took the ring announcer’s mic pre-match and taunted his opponent. The Dragon dominated the match, with 7 pin/sub attempts to 0 for the Magnificent Muraco. Steamboat got pin attempts twice after Jumping Judo Chops, 3 times after Arm Drags, and once after a Top Rope Body Press. But it was a Boston Crab that finished the match, with Muraco submitting at 13 mins.

High Flyers v Iron Sheik & Mongolian Stomper w/ Ally Stan Hansen: Otto Wanz was ringside pre-match and distracted the Stomper (-3 END). Highlights included a Doubleteam Double Back Drop by the Flyers and a Superplex by Jim Brunzell. Lowlights were a Blatant Low Blow by the Iron Sheik and and Hansen twice tossing his bullwhip into the ring-though both times the Flyers intercepted and used it! Double Flying Dropkicks allowed Gagne to pin the Stomper at 8 min 45 secs.

Dusty Rhodes v Harley Race: these 2 faced each other on MD 47, when Race pushed Rhodes into the referee and the referee DQ'd Rhodes. Race controlled the opening minutes of this match, catching Rhodes in a Quick Roll Up Pin (Dusty kicked out at the last second). Rhodes then executed 4 moves in a row, including a Figure 4 (Race reached the ropes) and a Roll Up Pin of his own (Race got his shoulder up). When the match went outside the ropes, Race slammed Rhodes through a table. Upon returning to the appropriate confines, Harley executed an Eye Gouge and Punch to the Groin, exhausting Rhodes. Race got a 2nd pin attempt after Mounted Punches but Rhodes squirmed out. A 2nd Rope Knee Drop looked like the end for the American Dream but he kicked out at the very last second (1-7 pin, rolled Cool. A follow-up Piledriver allowed Race to cover anew, but Dusty got his foot on the ropes just before Lisowski completed the 3 count (1-7 pin, rolled 2, but also a 6 w/ the six-sided die). Whether it was desperation from Dusty or frustration from Harley, the combatants left the ring and brawled into the crowd, being counted out by Lisowski at 10 min 16 secs. Race led in END at the time + 2 to -14. A 2nd rematch is expected.
