AWA: War in the Windy City (06.89)

AWA: War in the Windy City
June 23, 1989
Chicago, IL
Odeon Pavilion

The current AWA Champs were as follows:
AWA World Champion: Larry Zbyszko (2/7/1989)
AWA World Tag Team Champions: Ken Patera & Brad Rheingans (3/25/1989)
AWA International Television Champion: Greg Gagne (12/13/1988)
AWA Women’s Champion: Wendi Richter (11/26/1988)

I can’t believe this is the first complete AWA show that I’ll review. I figured it would be a SuperClash, Super Sunday, or even WrestleRock for crying out loud. But nevertheless, this is what you’re getting.

Your hosts are Eric Bischoff and Lee Marshall (without his signature burly mustache). Shows how out of touch Verne was, Marshall is the cool kid on the block. Read the rest of this entry
