I remember that being a bloody cover and/or article of one of the Apter mags as a kid and it's always kind of cool to have the memory of seeing one of those covers back then come to life with the actual video of the still pics you saw in the article or on the cover.

I've been watching Southwest too.  Is this match on the Youtubes?  If so do you have a date or way I can find it easily?

My copy is an actual disc, not sure about the youtubes thing. I can try to find the date for you tonight as I think I have it on my list. mid-late 83 is what I am thinking.

Just some quick hits from over the week-

Watched Batman vs. Superman, Dawn of Justice. Thought it was very good and better than many of the reviews.

Youtube: Henning and Hall vs. Regal and Garvin (non-title, AWA belts) from the Riviera. Really enjoyed this. Doug MacLeod tried not to get pulled down by Verne on commentary. Regal was a bump machine and doesn't get enough credit. Fun stuff.

Starrcade '86 - Having a hard time getting through this one with all of the gimmicks. Dusty vs. Tully first blood was not that good, Valiant vs. Jones, Ronnie Garvin v. Big Bubba, ...not a lot of quality here with all of the gimmicks. Stuck on the scaffold match now, which is a waste.

WWE Legends - Outdoor shows. Good stuff, forgot how fun these shows are. Showed some footage of Rogers/O'Connor from Comiskey Park 1961.

Saturday Night's Main Event #1 from May 1985

The opening match was actually very good: Windham, Rotundo and Steamboat vs. Sheik, Volkoff, and Steele with Animal's face turn.

Fun Piper's Pit with Orndorff.

Hogan defends the title vs. Orton (Orton DQ'd when Piper interferes)

Moolah loses to Richter with a roll up.

JYD beats Gentleman Pete Doherty.

This one only ran 54 minutes on the Network for some reason. Did they edit out a music video?

I'm watching the TNA weekly PPVs. They are actually pretty entertaining thus far. It is cool to have a mainstream alternative to compare to what WWF/E was offering at the time.

There are some cringeworthy moments like the midget in the trash can, the Johnsons, Cheex, etc., but it has been fun so far.

The October 1985 Saturday Nights Main Event.  Lots of utter goofiness, but it's awesome fun.  This is the on SNME I somehow missed as a kid and never saw in full.  Even watching the NBC production values of the time is fun.  Best part is listening to Uncle Elmer during the wedding.  Dude was a wreck.  I'm assuming this was legit, but he was nervous as hell and mispronounced many of the words.  

Hogan vs. VolkoffPiper vs. Orndorff in a bounty matchElmer vs. Jerry Valiant - over in six secondsAndre and Atlas vs Bundy and StuddDream Team vs. Poffo and Garea.

Those were great days in the old OSW chat room. Totally random shows. You'd never know who was showing up or who was no showing on the PPV.

I'm trying to stay away from spoilers from those years the best I can. It is amazing to see so many come through before they were stars or before the ascended. And it's also funny to see all the past their prime people.

http://culturecrossfire.com/wrestling/kayfabe-lies-and-alibis-shoot-interview-with-tully-blanchard/

Tully Blanchard touches on his father's early days as a football player, wrestler and promoter. Next Tully's own background in sports, and how it came together when he became a wrestler himself is touched upon. Blanchard covers the many legends of the sport who served as teachers for him as he grew into a regional star and eventually a nationally known heel. The sad story of Blanchard's friend Gino Hernandez and his fall into a world of drugs in the Dallas underground is gone over, which then transitions into Tully's own woeful tale of drugs wrecking his life. Talk of the glory days of the Horsemen drawing big money and living the high life leads into talk of the downfall of JCP. Blanchard's WWF run and his limited return to wrestling finish out the interview. Along the way we hear stories on the Magnum TA feud, why Blanchard refused to put over Terry Funk in WCW, the injury that ended his dabbling with indy dates, helping prisoners reform their lives and more!!

http://culturecrossfire.com/wrestling/wrasslin-back-in-the-day-wrestlemania-1/

I proudly present the 6,329th review of Wrestlemania 1 on the internet! It is a necessary evil as I climb through wrestling history month-by-month. Inside I cover the somewhat surprising story the main event tells -something I don't remember grasping in previous viewings over the years. Plus, Wendi Richter continues to deliver poor matches amid major hype, Buddy Rose is good at this whole pro wrestling thing, King Kong Bundy is a lying liar, Special Delivery Jones may have Wolverine-like recuperative powers, JYD manages to get winded from laying on the mat, the WWF rulebook changes match from match, Captain Lou is sedated, Barry Windham's collarbone gives him CTE, an MSG janitor gets his Wrestlemania moment, and more!

Prime Time Wrestling 9-20-1988.

Vince McMahon sat in for Gorilla (not sure if this is when Gorilla had his minor heart attack). Blue Blazer made his debut with a slightly earlier version of his costume and mask, which looked really cheao. There was an awful match between Hercules and JYD. The Rockers won a squash, and Bad News Brown had a fairly competitive match against a non-Killer Bee Jim Brunzell (back to the tie-dye).

Main Event was Bulldogs vs. Rougeaus 20 minute broadway from SummerSlam '88. Superstar Graham seriously said "brother" and "GORILLAMONSOON" and "my man" about 100 times in the match. Vince even made fun of his after the match when they came back to the studio, and his performance here may have been the reason he was let go. It's funny because his commetary on the house shows from that time was not as awful, but it's like he snorted cocaine before the show and just lost his mind.
