With the latest Hidden Gem offering, WWE has decided to get creative as tomorrow will see “The Road to SuperClash III” uploaded. What makes this selection creative is the fact that it appears to be an attempt to reconstruct an entire TV taping from the AWA archives. The date that WWE is using for the over-2-hour-long release (09/18/1988) matches up with a TV taping on that date. WWE appears to have gone above and beyond to include as much of that aforementioned event with 18 matches included. These are as follows:
The Top Guns (John Paul & Ricky Rice) vs. Terry Adonis & The Beast

Ron Garvin vs. Scott Steiner

Kerry von Erich vs. Gary Young

Greg Gagne vs. Mike Enos

Tag Team Match Madusa Miceli & Sylvia vs. Magnificent Mimi & Wendi Richter

The Badd Company (Pat Tanaka & Paul Diamond) (w/Diamond Dallas Page) vs. Natures Best (Bill Justin & Darryl Justin)

Terry Adonis & The Hangman vs. The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express (Ricky Morton & Robert Gibson)

Texas Heavyweight Title: King Parsons (c) vs. Michael Hayes
Steve Cox vs. Terry Garvin

Keith Eric & Sgt. Slaughter vs. Soldat Ustinov & Teijo Khan

Manny Fernandez vs. Wahoo McDaniel

Chavo Guerrero, Hector Guerrero & Mando Guerrero vs. The Hangman & The Rock ‘n’ Roll RPM’s (Mike Davis & Tommy Lane)

Alan Reynolds vs. Col. DeBeers

Ray Odyssey & Shawn Baxter vs. The Samoan Swat Team (Fatu & Samu)

Jerry Lawler vs. Terry Adonis

Bill Dundee & Brickhouse Brown vs. The Stud Stable (Jimmy Golden & Robert Fuller)

Cactus Jack, The Badd Company (Pat Tanaka & Paul Diamond) & The Rock ‘n’ Roll RPM’s (Mike Davis & Tommy Lane) vs. Jeff Jarrett, The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express (Ricky Morton & Robert Gibson) & The Top Guns (John Paul & Ricky Rice)
Jerry Lawler & Jimmy Valiant vs. Kerry von Erich & Michael Hayes
All of the above has commentary from Lee Marshall and Frank Dusek, and most of these matches can be found in listings of various AWA TV shows (obviously). However, not all of them can so it’s also possible that the commentary was recorded live and WWE has created a Frankenstein’s monster of televised and raw footage. You could almost call this the company’s own version of a compilation tape.

Finally, here is the official description for tomorrow’s gem:
AWA 09/18/1988 – The Road to SuperClash III [Duration: 02:19:50]
A who’s who of WWE Hall of Famers, including Cactus Jack, Jeff Jarrett, Kerry Von Erich and more compete in this AWA spectacular.
“The Road to SuperClash III” will be added to the “Hidden Gems” category under the “In Ring” section tomorrow.
