He was generally an asshole who complained about money, pushes, was not fun to be around, and was hard to do business with. If you were booking, it wasn't like he was a star name who could draw big, so he was left on the sidelines instead. Apart from ECW and SMW, he was in Global for a bit and I am certain had a cup of coffee in WCW.

Been watching old Raw episodes. Just saw the one where Ellering turned on the Road Warriors in favor of DOA. I'd almost forgotten him hitting the Roadies with his newspaper and they actually sold it!

If they could sell taking advice from a puppet, they could sell anything. That 2nd WWE run might even be worse than the first. Just wait until Hawk’s suicide attempt.

Continuing my journey through the World Championship Wrestling Saturday Night show.

Watched Feb 21, 1987 last night.


This was the episode Cornette lit up Ronnie Garvin with the fireball. Jimmy Garvin came down and turned face and cut a phenomenal promo about them being brothers and how he deserved the fireball, not Ronnie.

The buildup continues with Luger as the "associate" for the Horsemen. Ole's been gone the last few weeks but was there today. Some subtle hints about the Horsemen needing "youth".

Vladimir Petrov actually is starting to look pretty decent in the ring. He took a guy's head off with the sickle. Dick Murdoch turned heel last week, so Dusty and Murdoch are trading promos.

Good shit.

Ellering with DOA didn't much past the Hawk falling off the TitanTron angle which also was the end or nearly the end of the LOD. Then months later around WM15, the LOD returned for a couple of weeks with Ellering as their manager only for all three to vanish for good and without an angle right afterwards.

AWA Wrestle for a Cure

I watched this on DVD a few weeks ago. Perhaps the worst commentary job for a major company ever.

A good line up on paper though.

The 2 guys calling the matches were Killer Kowalski and Eddie Andelman.
Andelman, a big wrestling fan, is considered to have invented the "Sports Talk Radio" format in the late 1960s.
Eddie probably had a hand setting up the event, as he did lots lots of charity workusing his quasi-celebrity status.
Not a good wrestling commentator by any stretch.
It is as if he is embarrassed to be a fan; making light of the action in the ring and inventing  goofy names for moves.
Killer Kowalski didn't have much luck controlling Eddie, either
I was cool to see the Road Warriors performing in Massachusetts though.
To have a non-WWF group airing LIVE on Channel 5 in Boston was exciting.
Until then, any non-WWF wrestling aired on UHF stations in my area.

http://culturecrossfire.com/wrestling/mid-south-wrestlefest-1985/

Mid South Wrestling holds an outdoor show at the Tulsa Fairgrounds headlined by a mega tag match with Bill Watts, Dick Murdoch and Hacksaw Duggan partnering up to face Gen. Akbar, Kareem Muhammed and Kamala. Dusty Rhodes attempts to wrest the NWA title from Ric Flair in the co-feature. Plus Jake the Snake battles Ted Dibiase.  Butch Reed, Eddie Gilbert, John Nord, the One Man Gang and others take part in action on the undercard. A fine afternoon of rednecks, country music and wrasslin!

Did you watch that on YouTube or did you find someone that had the footage? I’ve asked around a few times and nobody has ever had this show

It is up on Youtube.

Tom Magee vs. Ted Dibiase from 1988 was up loaded on today's hidden gems.  It has major audio issues.   Magee is less than fluid, and has ugly strikes, but in a world where the Warlord spent years on TV, I really can't understand how he wasn't used in the WWF or NWA/WCW just on his look alone. The fans react well to him battering ultra heel Dibiase.

Trying to watch the old NWA Saturday Nights chronologically. I just watched the 3.28.87 episode last night which ended with something I had heard about and read about but never actually seen a clip of. The "West Coast Tag-Team Champions" the Gladiators lost to the Mulkeys to end the show.

I loved that.  I was so excited to see the much hyped "West Coast Tag Team Champions," and the ending made this even better.

David Crockett as about as annoying as anyone here overplaying it, and I actually don't mind him so much. "YOU DID IT! YOU DID IT! YOU DID IT!!"

IIRC, the Sunday show had a rerun of their match, and had an interview with the Mulkeys as well.
I watched this when it happened in 1987 and was totally floored!

- A former world champ has perhaps the worst match on the card.
- We learn that the Honky Tonk Man is probably broke, if the commission rules are accurate
- Roddy Piper and Mr. Wonderful get a little hardcore
- Terry Funk gives Rick McGraw a chance to shine
- Ricky Steamboat and the JYD dispense some retribution to the dastardly villains, Mr. Fuji and Don Muraco.
- We test the theory that smaller wrestlers mean better workrate.
- A former football player teases his potential as a wrestler.
