Watching Nwa's WCW on TBS dated Feb 14 1987. They said that Big Dusty and Big Bubba have a big match coming up at the Boston Garden.

Did the card take place, or did WWF stop it from taking place?

Thanks Horsemman, kind of suprised this card took place. I would have thought Vince would had put a stop to it.

They came back to Boston a few times after that. I know of at least one show in 90.

They ran the Boston Garden in 1987, 1988, and 1989, then they ran the Boston University arena in 1990, and the Worcester Centrum in 1991.

There aren't any- they only ran Boston once a year from 1987 - 1990.

I'm pretty sure this card was the first time Bobby Eaton and Stan Lane teamed as the Midnight Express, or at least within the first couple of matches.

Yep! They debuted Stan earlier that day on WCW.

In fact, the Road Warriors cut a promo during the episode on facing the "new" MX that night in Boston. ...The only bad part was they cut the promo before the fans knew anything about a new MX. That was later in the show.

That's a nice looking card. It would have been a good one to see live. I bet the wrestlers gave their all that night as they they were debuting in a major new northeast market. They drew a pretty good crowd too. Does anyone know if this was the biggest crowd they had in the Boston area?

It was the biggest drawing card in Boston for Crockett.

WCW had a sold-out Nitro in the late 90's that outdrew the 1987 show.
