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

Survivor Series 1987

WWF Survivor Series 1987
November 26, 1987
Richfield, OH
Richfield Coliseum

The current WWF Champs were as follows:
World Champion: Hulk Hogan (1/23/1984)
Intercontinental Champion: Honky Tonk Man (6/2/1987)
World Tag Team Champions: Strike Force (10/27/1987)
Women’s Champion: Sensational Sherri (7/24/1987)

It’s the first-ever Survivor Series! Vince decided that Ted Turner shouldn’t have ALL the fun on Thanksgiving with Starrcade, so he started a tradition of his own. A festivus for the rest of us, if you WEEL.

Your hosts are Gorilla Monsoon and Jesse “The Pilgrim” Ventura. Read the rest of this entry

WrestleMania 2

WWF WrestleMania 2: What The World Is Coming To
April 7, 1986
Uniondale, NY/Chicago, IL/Los Angeles, CA
Nassau Coliseum/Rosemont Horizon/L.A. Sports Arena

The current WWF Champs were as follows:
World Champion: Hulk Hogan (1/23/1984)
Intercontinental Champion: Randy Savage (2/8/1986)

World Tag Team Champions: Greg Valentine & Brutus Beefcake (8/24/1985)
Women’s Champion: The Fabulous Moolah (11/25/1985)

Cheap plug: I strongly recommend the “Main Event: WWE in the Raging 80s” book that WWE has put out. It’s a great read with more 1980s information than you’ll probably ever want to know.

From New York, our hosts are Vince McMahon and Susan St. James! Remember McMillan & Wife? Well, she’s wife. The legendary Ray Charles sings “America the Beautiful”! Read the rest of this entry
