The Retro Wrestling Federation ("RWF") is a nationwide promotion featuring superstars from the Minneapolis and Early '80s Georgia TV Pro Wrestling sets. Original Game Tribute set wrestlers will eventually be added. The rules of TV Pro Wrestling are generally followed, but some adjustments are made (such as for timing, so every match doesn't end in 0 or 30 seconds, and in storytelling).

The Commissioner of the RWF is Percy Buttons, notable eccentric, playboy, and cardboard enthusiast.

The first order of business was crowning an RWF World Heavyweight Champion. A single elimination tournament featuring 32 of the best wrestlers in the world was held to crown the inaugural Champion. Who won? Find out in the following posts!

Match Day 1
Centrum in Worcester, Worcester, MA
World Heavyweight Championship Tournament

Match 1: # 1 seed Bruno Sammartino v. # 8 Iron Sheik: the match ended at 2 min 36 secs when Bruno was DQ'd after blocking the Iron Sheik's use of a foreign object and using it himself! The first of many upsets!

Match 2: #4 Mad Dog Vachon v # 5 Terry Funk: Superstar Billy Graham interrupted Mad Dog's pre-match interview. Stan Hansen came to the aid of Funk and disabled the referee, but Mad Dog dominated the match and forced the SUB with a sleeper hold. 9 min 15 secs.

Match 3: # 3 Bob Backlund v # 6 Larry Zbyszko (w/ Manager Paul Dangerously): Zybyszko started the match with a foreign object, unseen by the ref, applied his patented Shoulder Breaker, then pinned Backlund a few minutes later. 4 min 33 secs.

Match 4: # 2 Dusty Rhodes v #7 Mr. Saito: Kerry Von Erich applied the Iron Claw on Saito during his entrance. Saito couldn't make it to the ring and was counted out. It couldn't be easier for Dusty.

Match Day 2
Palace Theater, Waterbury, CT

#4 Curt Hennig v # 5 Gene Kiniski: a one hold match, with Kiniski opening with a bridging German suplex and pin. 33 secs

#3 Andre the Giant (w/ Manager Bobby Heenan) v # 6 Jumbo Tsuruta: Andre knocked out the ref then applied a series of illegal moves (wearing out Tsuruta) before the ref recovered. Andre applied a figure four leglock (what a sight!) but Tsuruta reached the ropes. Andre finished him off with a sitting splash. 11 min 39 secs

# 2 Harley Race v # 7 Kerry Von Erich: pre-match, Von Erich grabbed a foreign object from Race and used it on him. During the match, Race applied a figure four leglock but Andre came to Von Erich's rescue and whalloped Race (exhausting him). Sensing his opportunity Von Erich immediately applied his iron claw and forced Race to submit. 2 mins 39 secs

Match Day 3

# 1 Verne Gage v # 8 Superstar Billy Graham: a quick match as Superstar was inadvertently whipped into the ref, who DQ'd him. Superstar proceeded to beat the ref senseless. 3 mins 33 secs

# 4 Pedro Morales v # 5 Rick Martel: an even match until the end, when Martel made multiple pin events, getting the 3 count after an elbow smash. Post-match, the Commissioner, Percy Buttons, tried to reverse the result but was bodyslammed by Martel ally Dusty Rhodes. 12 mins 18 secs

Match Day 4
William & Mary Hall, William & Mary College, Williamsburg, VA
World Heavyweight Championship Tournament

# 1 Hulk Hogan v # 8 Otto Wanz: Wanz dominated Hogan (the AWA version fyi) and finished him off with German head scissors and pin. 9 min 21 secs

# 4 Stan Hansen v # 5 The Sheik (w/ Manager Abullah Farouk): Farouk turned on The Sheik, hitting him with a chair, tiring him. Hansen controlled the match and pinned The Sheik after applying the Brazos Valley Backbreaker. 7 mins 24 secs

# 3 Jack Brisco v # 6 Sgt. Slaughter (w/ Manager Alfred Hayes): Hogan was ringside pre-match and distracted Slaughter. A relatively long match that was decided by manager interference, when Hayes used a foreign object to disable Brisco and allow Slaughter to get the pin. 12 mins 15 secs

# 2 Nick Bockwinkle v # 7 Bobo Brazil: Leon White tried to interfere on Bockwinkle's behalf right away, but instead of hitting Bobo with a chair, he hit his friend! Bockwinkle evened things up with a hip roll and a pair of knee slams. Bockwinkle applied 3 piledrivers over the course of 5 mins but Bobo refused to be pinned. Finally, Bockwinkle resorted to the use of a foreign object, unseen by the ref, which allowed him to get the pin. 9 mins 15 secs

Match Day 5
Charlotte Coliseum, Charlotte, NC
Round 2 (part 1 of 2) of the World Heavyweight Championship Tournament

# 4 Mad Dog Vachon v # 8 Iron Sheik: The Sheik (I did NOT make this up, that is what the dice and ally/heat rating said!!!!) entered the ring and DDT'd Mad Dog. The Iron Sheik was DQ'd. He and The Sheik then brutally beat Mad Dog. After the match it was announced that Mad Dog would be out for 2 weeks, causing him to miss the rest of the tournament. 1 min 30 secs

# 5 Gene Kiniski v # 8 Sailor Art: Kiniski was controlling the match before fireworks went off in the arena, injuring both wrestlers. The RWF doctor, Brenda "Bones" Buttons, no relation to the Commissioner, allegedly, was a busy woman, and ruled both wrestlers out for a week, meaning 2 more wrestlers were eliminated from the tournament.

# 2 Dusty Rhodes v # 6 Larry Zbyszko (w/ Manager Paul Dangerously): Zbyszko was establishing control when his manager threw brass knuckles into the ring. Dusty intercepted the weapon and used them on Zbyszko, wearing out the heel. A bionic elbow finished off Zbyszko. With Mad Dog out, Dusty gets a bye into the semifinals. 4 mins 12 secs

# 3 Andre the Giant v # 7 Kerry Von Erich: Stan Hansen interrupted Von Erich's pre-match interview, promoting his own upcoming match v Otto Wanz. An even match early on, with Von Erich even executing a shaky bodyslam on Andre. The Giant eventually took control and got the pin after an unseen chokehold. Andre gets a free pass to the semifinals with the earlier pyrotechnic accident. 7 mins 45 secs

# 1 Verne Gagne v # 5 Rick Martel: Martel pummeled Gagne with a steel chair until the locker room emptied to stop the beating. Martel was DQ'd. 4 mins 3 secs

# 2 Dick the Bruiser v # 6 Billy Robinson: Dick got the pin after biting, and cutting, Robinson's forehead. 9 min 36 secs

# 4 Stan Hansen v # 8 Otto Wanz: a GREAT MATCH! Hansen pummeled the big Austrian with a foreign object pre-match. Wanz got into the match and was able to deliver 3 Big Splashes. Hansen though was able to get the pin after a Brazos Valley Backbreaker. 12 min 27 secs.

Match Day 7
The Omni, Atlanta, GA
Quarterfinals of the World Heavyweight Championship

Because of injuries, only 2 of the 4 quarterfinal matches actually took place. Dusty Rhodes and Andre got free passes into the semifinals. 2 non-Tournament matches replaced the 2 cancelled quarterfinal matches.

Bruno Sammartino v Terry Funk: a long, back and forth match featuring a combined 9 pin/sub attempts. Bruno got the pin after a reverse chinlock. 15 mins 27 secs

Bob Backlund v Ric Flair (w/ Manager Bobby Heenan): Backlund was on cloud nine after being complimented pre-match by all time great, Bruno Sammartino. Heenan tried to interfere in the match but was caught by the ref and his client was DQ'd! 2 mins 36 secs

# 1 Verne Gagne v # 2 Dick the Bruiser: a match that looked incredible on paper did not disappoint. Dick controlled the first 1/4 of the match, Gagne the second 1/4, it went back and forth for the third 1/4, then Dick dominated the end, getting the three count after executing a lethal top rope knee drop. 12 mins 15 secs

# 2 Nick Bockwinkle v # 4 Stan Hansen: the media-hungry Hansen introduced a new heel, Don Muraco, pre-match. Early in the match, Mad Dog Vachon tossed brass knuckles to Hansen, but Bockwinkle intercepted them and used them on Hansen, exhausting him. Bockwinkle applied a sleeper and executed a piledriver, but couldn't keep Hansen down for a pin. Hansen replied with a Boston Crab and got Bockwinkle to submit, though Bockwinkle claimed he did not. Hansen into the semis to face Dick the Bruiser! 4 mins 45 secs.

Match Day 8
Nashville Municipal Auditorium, Nashville TN
Semifinals of World Heavyweight Championship Tournament + 2 preliminary matches

"Quarters in the Semis"

Rick Martel v Curt Hennig: Martel controlled the match until Terry Funk distracted the ref and Hennig used a monkeywrench on Martel. Hennig finished him off soon after with a flying body press. 5 mins 9 secs

Pedro Morales v Harley Race: back and forth match w/ 6 pin/sub attempts. Race forced a sub with a sleeper hold at 14 mins 18 secs

And in the Semis:

# 2 Dusty Rhodes v # 3 Andre the Giant (w/ Manager Bobby Heenan): neither wrestler had to step into the ring last round as their opponents were injured. Andre controlled the match, with 8 pin/sub attempts v only 1 for Dusty. Heenan interfered multiple times. The Sheik slipped Andre a roll of quarters which he used to pummel Dusty. Andre executed 3 consecutive Sitting Splashes but needed to choke Dusty to get the pin. 12 mins 30 secs. Post-match, a hoarse Dusty screamed at the ref, claiming a quick count.

# 2 Dick the Bruiser v # 4 Stan Hansen: Hansen controlled the match early but Dick got back into it before Ric Flair slipped a roll of quarters to Hansen, who used them to batter Dick. Hansen got the pin after delivering a big elbow smash. 10 mins 21 secs

Next Match Day will be the final of the World Heavyweight Championship Tournament, Andre the Giant v Stan Hansen. I don't know whether it goes down as one of the greatest or the worst matches ever, but it is certainly on one of the lists. We'll also have 3 excellent preliminary matches and another appearance by the ubiquitous Sheik, who seems to spend more time interfering in the matches of others than he does wrestling in his own.

Great tournament!

Found an Andre vs. Stan Hansen match from 1981 on Youtube, took place in Japan. Amazing match, Andre was really agile back then. He was the heel, believe it or not.

Hope your final is a good one!

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

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

Thanks Dave! Andre has been wrestling as a heel here (Bobby Heenan is his manager) too. But he may be having second thoughts...
