No points for El Olympico yesterday so everyone draws closer. One Fan Gang kinda coming out of the woodwork and interjecting himself into the mix a bit. We're a little past the halfway mark with this thing. Halloween night is the finale.

Frankie Williams (neck) - Swede Hansen

Eddie Gilbert (neck) - Masked Superstar

Andre The Giant (leg) - Killer Khan

Bob Backlund (neck) - Carpet is correct in that the Masked Superstar delivered the initial shot, but no one really remembers that unless they were watching the MSG telecast.  The Iron Shiek further complicated things with the Clubs injuring the shoulder and more stress to the neck

Kevin Sullivan (neck) - People saying Staisiak...but I believe this was a Ken Patera special as well

Okay the only thing surprising is that it took this long. I am totally unaware of a Stasiak-Sullivan neck injury angle. Will score the points if somebody can document that in the WWWF. I am not sure if there was one at an age before I remembered or if Sin took a guess and everyone copied it. But the amount of people people going with it makes me question if something happened that I don't remember.

I don't think it happened in a match between the two but during a run in when Stasiak was victimizing someone else and Sully came to the aid, but then got his ass handed to him.

Yeah BJ....I wasn't watching WWWF at the time, but I heard that when Patera came into the fed...he was injuring a bunch of people leading up to his matches with Bruno..One of the victims was Sullivan...but like I said I wasn't watching.  I guess I could see Staisiak injuring Sullivan to get some heat for his matches with Bruno.  I just never heard of it going down before until now.

I - thought - that Sullivan missed about a month in Fall of 76, and I thought I recall the talk being that Stasiak hurt him - and since Stan was getting some MSG shots again at that time, it made sense to me. Anybody else? It may well have been Ken Patera in his early WWWF stint - although I do not recall a full-fledged "angle" based on Sullivan being hurt by Patera. And I also thought I heard that the Executioners hurt Kevin too.

Good thing he "filled out" a little while in Fla...

My guess of Stasiak was a complete larceny, as for the life of me I can't remember any Sullivan neck injury angle.

Patera / Williams? Guess so, but I do remember Swede Hanson hurting Frankie Williams neck.

I think it was a brainbuster or piledriver move. Williams had that way of shaking like a leaf no matter what the move was, so it took a bit of extra time to realize he was hurt. Frankie came to MSG to say Hi at that one show, and was introduced in his street clothes before a match.

Right. It was during the 9/79 MSG show that he came out in a neck brace. Vince told the audience that his injury was the result of a Swede Hansen piledriver.  I guess Vince got that out there knowing that Hansen was next in line to face Backlund at MSG and that they were trying to make some subtile buildup to the upcoming match.

Right. I was looking for Sullivan (Patera Neckbreaker) and Williams (Swede's piledriver - Frankie had a neckbrace for awhile) but wasn't aware of these other injury angles. It's all good my memory loss won't hurt you guys that remember better.

By the way - today around 4 pm EST I have the *crown jewel* of WWWF trivia questions and I will be just crushed if you guys get this thing in fifteen minutes or some shit like that.
