Watched the 10/11/86, 10/18/86 and 10/25/86 editions of World Championship Wrestling this weekend. JCP was still on fire after a super hot summer. Rick Rude joins Paul Jones’ Army the same weekend as Manny Fernandez takes the briefcase of money and turns on Jimmy Valiant. Magnum is gearing up for Starrcade and challenges Nikita on the 10/18episode. The next week, his career is over. In the 10/25 episode, they announce the Magnum injury, run the famous angle where Dusty gets the parking lot beat down by the Horsemen, and then the show ends with Nikita turning face and joaiming Dusty.

Rude and Bull turned on Baron Von Raschke (who looks awful) and overnight Paul Jones has the best new team going.

Great stuff. These are all 35 minute episodes without commercials. Guessing football season made this shorter out of necessity.

I don't remember this at all.  Anything special happen?

So it was actually a six man match with Rude, Shaska and Baron vs. Brad Armstrong and two other guys (I think the Jayhawks). The angle was pretty stupid. They accidentally kicked Baron and then he was distracted and rolled up. Paul Jones eventually attacked him from behind. Manny wasn’t involved in this angle. This happened in TBS and may not have been shown on the syndies. This set up Starrcade with Baron as a face, but he wasn’t around much longer.

I watched the first 9 episodes of Mid South wrestling on the network. I’ve seen some Mid South previously but never watched much in order. It’s interesting and entertaining but a little goofy at times.


Roop and Orndorff lost a match when Orton was pinned.


Orndorff beat Dibiase for the title but Lost it back when he was dq’d after the match for hitting Dibiase with the title.


Watts talking about the welcher Cat Sabullis in Jackson, MS.


A Mississippi title match held in Louisiana

Following up the 11-29-86 episode, just watched the 12-6-86 episode of NWA World Championship Wrestling Saturday Night.


Show was loaded. This is the actual first show taped after Starrcade, so this is kinda like their "After Wrestlemania Raw".


Jim Cornette is not there due to the leg injury, so Baby Doll fills in for him as the manager of the Midnight Express.


Barry Windham debuts.


Krusher Kruschev is growing his hair out ever so slightly. He and Ivan are still US Tag Champs, but Krusher would be in the WWF in about a month as Smash.


Big news is that the entire show kinda built around this angle between the RnR Express and Rude/Manny "The Awesome Twosome". RnR is banged up after the cage match with the Andersons. Robert's leg is messed up, and Ricky's arm is still jacked up (which predated Starrcade). Words were exchanged in separate interviews. Jimmy Crockett brings out a contract, and they sign a title match for later in the show. David Crockett is just off the charts hyped, overly rooting for the RnR. This match is almost 30 minutes long, and takes up even more time including commercials. Long, drawn out story here with Rude and Manny working over Robert's leg and then Ricky's arm, kinda just systematically dismantling these two guys who no-tags behind the ref's back. Great story telling if you're patient enough to watch it play out. Really, super hot crowd and a hell of a story. New tag champs are crowned.

Great show.

It’s just a fascinating time to watch.  All of ‘86 has been a blast to see again, and the summer shows were off the charts hot during the Bash.  But this is really interesting after Magnum’s injury.  I had forgotten what a crazy push Brad Armstrong got to try to fill that void, and now Windham is in.  Luger is going to debut soon too.  Yeah, Rude and Manny were awesome though.

I love the Barry v Flair match from WWW in early 87 that takes up the entire show.

I've been watching the All Star Wrestling episodes on the network. I'm up to the middle of 78. The wrestling is what it is, although I'm surprised how "fake" some of the offense looks. If Stan Stasiak did his heart punch today, it would be included in Botchamania. Complete air every single time. The main thing that strikes me is the weekly promo segment. The heel managers, Blassie, Grand Wizard, Albano, are very entertaining, if a little nonsensical. But the faces are a cure for insomnia. Backlund, Zbyszko, Garea, Strongbow etc all speak in the same dull monotone and they'll all try their best. Can someone explain how this got over back in the day?

My take on the rather staid babyfaces is this. The heels were supposed to be the crazy and colorful characters. The babyface was meant to mirror the typical legit sport athletes of the era. The big NFL and MLB stars of the era typically were the very same with quiet personas and a personality put over as an All American type that some might now see as dull. The athletes who were more outspoken and colorful typically were resented by some fans and had confrontational relationships with the media although they certainly had fans to an extent a pro wrestling heel looking for heat did not.
