From Wwe network news. I’m sure Khawk is happy!
We’re headed to April 8th, 1990 tomorrow, smack in the middle of the AWA’s true dying days for none other than SuperClash IV. The event has always been known to have taken place at the St. Paul Civic Center, but was widely believed to have not been recorded at the time. The Wikipedia page for the show even states its unrecorded status as a fact. As we all know now, that was not correct. Tomorrow will see a 2-hour version of the supercard (or at least what could pass for one in 1990 AWA) added to the streaming service. We can confirm that all 7 matches are included. These are as follows:
Jake Milliman vs Todd BeckerBrad Rheingans & DJ Peterson vs. The Texas Hangmen (Killer & Psycho)Baron von Raschke vs. Col. DeBeersTommy Jammer vs. Tully BlanchardKokina Maximus (the future Yokozuna) (w/Sheik Adnan Al-Kassie) vs. Nord The BarbarianAWA World Heavyweight Championship w/ Nick Bockwinkel as Guest Referee: Mr. Saito © vs. Larry ZbyszkoTag Team Steel Cage Match:Paul Diamond & The Trooper vs. The Destruction Crew (Mike Enos & Wayne Bloom)Here are some further notes for those interested. The video includes the “provided in the most complete form possible” disclaimer at the start. As should be expected, there is no commentary on the video. This is a simple, single, hard camera setup. Finally, some backstage interviews (conducted by none other than Eric Bischoff) with various participants are included as a post-event bonus.
Capping things off, here is the official description:
AWA 04/08/1990 – SuperClash 4 [Duration 01:58:18] Masa Saito puts the AWA World Heavyweight Championship on the line against Larry Zbyszko and much more action in this rarely seen supercard.As always, AWA’s SuperClash IV will be added to the “Hidden Gems” category under the “In Ring” heading of the WWE Network tomorrow.
I have the main event and post match interviews but the rest never aired...I was surprised to find out the rest of the show was even taped to be honest.
Makes me hold out hope Twin Wars 90 was taped with Flair vs. Pillman.
