saw some matches with Gino Hernandez. I thought Gino's finisher where he did the flying elbow off the turnbuckle but with his back to his opponent was lame. never saw the logic in it. did enjoy seeing him pin Dusty Rhodes clean though. that was a rarity. even if it was a 2 out of 3 fall match.

Watched the last Prime Time Wrestling of 1986 last night. The main event was a surprisingly good Hercules vs. Tito match that had a lot of different elements cooking. Honky Tonk Man attacked him before the bell when he was leaving his match. Hercules took advantage and worked over Tito's left leg for a good 15 minutes with various moves. Tito finally made his superman comeback and worked over Herc's left leg using many of the same moves (ramming into the turnbuckle). Tito set up the figure four, middle of the ring, but Heenan left the announce booth and rang the bell. Ref re-started the match after Fink got in and announced what happened. Tito worked over Herc for another five minutes in a cat and mouse trying to set up the figure four again. Herc kicks out and sends Tito to the ropes, where Heenan hits him when the ref wasn't looking and Herc gets the pin.

Both guys looked strong. Fun match. Had me rooting for Tito to get that figure four locked in again, which considering the match is 31 years old, is kinda amazing.

Wrestlemania 1 shook the wrestling world to it's core in March of 1985. Plus the WWF signed 3 other contracts worth potentially millions of dollars tp their bottom line. Also covered is the stories of Ted Turner and Vince McMahon butting heads over money and other issues as their business relationship crumbles, an Amazon invades the women's division, a celebrity is injured by Hulk Hogan, an infamous murder suspect nearly becomes part of the Mania event, Mr. T proves to be a lousy guest, the headliners Maina paydays cause some ill feelings, Bruno Sammartino thrashes the some WWF stars while doing public relations for the company, plus more news and notes!

Been watching Southwest from the early 80's the past few evenings. One clip was Brody-Leduc from San Antonio with Scott Casey as the ref, and then "The Mummy" comes in and destroys Casey while Brody is held down.

I remember that being a bloody cover and/or article of one of the Apter mags as a kid and it's always kind of cool to have the memory of seeing one of those covers back then come to life with the actual video of the still pics you saw in the article or on the cover.

I have vague memories of seeing Tully Blanchard and the Rock & Roll Express in Southwest.  I think the USA channel carried it at some point maybe in 82.  Not for long.

Barry Darsow and Bill Eadie sit down to cover their run as one of the top teams of the 80's, growing up with a batch of other Minnesota natives who all became wrestlers, Eadie's near death experience which he says verified the fact that there is an afterlife, how Ric Flair helped make Darsow a star, Andre drinking stories, Haku bar fight stories, issues while working with the Road Warriors and Rougeau Brothers, the infamous match in a semi truck bed that led to Darsow being fired from WCW, and more!

Caught up on my Hammettime dvds, baseball season is over, and hockey last night was weak, so I reupped my WWE Network subscription.

Watched the May 11, 1985 World Class Episode. Texas Stadium matches...

Kerry vs. One Man Gang. Excellent match. Kerry was in his prime. Gary Hart gets his head shaved.

First part of the 12 man tag team match was next, which was more disorganized than I remembered it, but still super fun.

Here's the bad part. The next episode is not online! BOO!!! I didnt realize this until after I watched it. Was looking forward to the post match angle where Adams and Gino destroy the car.

Add to the list:
Ricky Morton
Robert Gibson
Ivan Koloff
Don Kernoodle (who was OUTSIDE the cage)
Ric Flair
Arn Anderson (on a RUN-In at the end).
18 fucking guys bled.  LOL

Awesome show, seriously.  Really fun watch.

First half of AWA Super Clash 3 tonight on the Network.

It actually wasn't THAT bad. Some of the matches were rushed and a bit sloppy, but nothing is terrible.

So far:
Rock N Roll RPMS and Cactus vs. Guerrero Bro (it is clear that Lee Marshall didn't know the RPMs names)

Eric Embry vs. Jeff Jarrett (World Class Light Hvywt Title)

Jimmy Valiant v. Wayne Bloom (and old TBS squash)

Ice Man Parsons v. Brickhouse Brown (Texas Title)

Top Guns and Wendy Richter v. Bad Company & Madusa (Rice and Dukes are green as hell here)

Greg Gagne v. Ronnie Garvin (Intl TV Title)

Lingerie Street Fight Battle Royal

Half to take a break here. Will watch the rest tomorrow.

One thing that really hurt this show is the lack of discussion of the feuds leading up to it, the lack of video packages and the lack of pre-match interviews.  It seemed like they spent more time hyping the lingerie battle royal than the actual matches.  Granted, I know they hyped the hell out of the card on the weekly tv leading up to it, but as a snapshot in time, this show doesn't have any of that context.  Lee Marshall was just fucking awful on play by play too.  Nice guy, but awful.  Didn't talk about the issues and didn't know the moves.

Marshall sucked in the AWA. Never liked him one bit.

Watched The Golden Age of Quebec Wrestling volumes 2 and 3 over the last few days. Some great rare stuff there, including Montreal TV from Eddie Quinn back in the 50's (Killer Kowalski, Yvon Robert, Johnny Rougeau, Len Montana), a Bravo-Bockwinkel non title match from Montreal from December 1983, Martel defending the AWA title against King Tonga and Jim Garvin in Montreal, Martel getting a non title pin win on Stan Hansen in April 1986, some early Rougeaus, an Andre handicap match from the TV studio, lots more. Very fun stuff. Quality varies from match to match but it doesn't kill the fun of what your watching.
