AWA All-Star Wrestling on ESPN / TSN for July 26th
Memphis Vice vs. Clarence Black & Chip Gaither
Memphis Vice had been on a bit of a roll of late with several successive victories over the PYT Express before they were renamed the Onyx Express. They continued this as they easily dominated Black and Gaither, two young gladiators just making their start in the business. After a very one sided match, Bryant and Winston hit a double backdrop into a faceplant on Gaither to put an end to things. But it turned out to not be the end, as Tony Atlas and the Onyx Express charged to the ring and attacked the members of Memphis Vice. Atlas trapped Winston in the Full Nelson and forced him to watch as Koko and Brickhouse executed the spike brainbuster on Bryant before the AWA officials finally intervened.
AWA American Title match : Lex Luger © vs. Wahoo McDaniel
Lately, Luger’s efforts had been focused on trying to win the World title from Paul Orndorff, but now he was having to defend his own belt against the tough veteran Wahoo McDaniel. McDaniel really took it to Luger, blasting him with blistering chops and not seeming impressed by the power and muscle of the young champion. Luger was on the defensive for much of the match, frequently back pedaling and trying to muscle his way out of compromising situations, only for Wahoo to keep coming after him. It took interference by Sheikh Adnan Al-Kaissie to turn the tide, grabbing Wahoo from the outside and tripping him when he tried to hit the running overhand chop. Luger swiftly capitalized, hitting a nasty running knee to the head before pulling the tights to get a dirty pinfall. Luger was only just able to make it out of this match with his championship intact.
AWA Six-Man Tag Team Title match : Mike Shaw, Buzz Sawyer & Dave Schultz © vs. Al Perez & Badd Company
For all that this match was for the Six-Man Tag Titles, much of the focus was on Southern champ Al Perez as both Sawyer and Schultz went after him, looking to prove their individual claims for a shot at his belt. Perez went toe to toe with both men, just as determined not to bow down but still taking quite a few shots from them. Badd Company tried to take advantage of this by sneaking in several double teams on Mike Shaw. Ultimately , however, the big “Tank” would prevail, catching Tanaka coming off the top rope with a crushing power slam to put an end of the match. Sawyer and Schultz kept coming after Perez well past the final bell.
Nick Bockwinkel & Curt Hennig vs. Buddy Rose & Harley Race
Rose and Race have seemed determined to strip all of Bockwinkel’s allies from him, especially in light of the upcoming match in Winnipeg between Bockwinkel and Race being dubbed “The Final Battle”. To that end, they focused much of their attention on Hennig through this match, keeping him in their end of the ring and attacking him mercilessly. They did an expert job of drawing Bockwinkel into the ring, only for the ref to shoo him out while they double teamed Hennig. He was able to rally even knock Rose out of the ring with the Ax Lariat, only to get caught in a belly to belly suplex from Race that ended the match. A convincing win, but it will be one on one for Race when he faces Bockwinkel in Winnipeg.
King Kong Bundy vs. Kendo Nagasaki
“Special Forces” Bundy has had the Sinister Syndicate gunning for him ever since he showed his true allegiance to the Cobra Corps, but he certainly has shown no indication that he has felt intimidated. Kendo Nagasaki was certainly intent on making him pay, pummeling Bundy with vicious martial arts kicks and chops, but Bundy just kept rolling on after him. It looked like he was going to spray Bundy with the green mist, but Bundy crashed into him then hit a running splash to get the pinfall. A solid victory for Bundy, but it is unlikely that it’s going to stop the Syndicate from coming after him.
The British Bulldogs & Rick Martel vs. The Varsity Club (Mike Rotundo, Rick Steiner & Dan Spivey)
The Varsity Club had both Missy Hyatt and Kevin Sullivan at ringside with them as they took on both the World Tag Team and Canadian champs and both liberally attempted to interfere in the match. As dominant as both the Bulldogs and Martel have been of late, the powerfully built lettermen of the Varsity Club gave as good as they got, frequently coming one suplex or power slam away from taking the match. While Steiner was fighting with Martel inside the ring, Sullivan was looking to turn the tide of the battle with the Golden Spike, but was intercepted by Dynamite Kid. Missy, however, recovered the Spike and got on the ring apron, trying to use it on Martel when he was whipped into the ropes. Martel reversed Steiner at the last second, though, and Steiner crashed into Missy, sending her tumbling to the floor. Taking advantage of the confusion, Martel rolled up Steiner to get the one two three. While Missy shrieked at ringside after the match, Sullivan was clearly upset with her costing them the match, and it took the rest of the Varsity Club to get both parties calmed down.

Love how you've built Lex Luger so far. He has quickly become a major force on your roster.
