AWA All-Star Wrestling on ESPN / TSN for August 16th

 

AWA World Tag Title match : The British Bulldogs © vs. The Moondogs

 

It was a real dogfight (tee hee) as the champs pitted their high impact, high speed offense against the crazy brawling of the Moondogs. Although the Bulldogs impressed the fans with their spectacular moves, the Moondogs just kept coming at them like something out of a horror movie. Eventually, Rex brought the ring bell into the ring and hit Davey Boy with it, leading to the ref to declare the match a DQ win for the champions. All four men kept slugging it out long after the ref called the match.

 

That main event sounded like a dog fight. Very well booked couple of weeks and moving some pieces around in the card.  There is a lot of upward movement possible in the AWA with the way you book it which is a great thing.

Looking forward to seeing Jesse Barr compete in the AWA.

Orndorff vs. Rose is a great title match.

AWA All-Star Wrestling on ESPN / TSN for August 13th

 

Cpl. Scott Hall vs. Jerry Blackwell

 

Before he left the AWA, “Crusher” Jerry Blackwell had the fans solidly in his corner, but since his return he has cared about the opinon of nobody except Sheikh Adnan Al-Kaissie .  “Crusher” ruthlessly went after the knee of the powerful young recruit of the Cobra Corps, bowling over Hall and getting him in several painful leglocks. Hall tried to fight back, but the damage done to his knee undercut his attempts at power moves, ultimately collapsing then trying to power slam the huge Blackwell. Blackwell followed up with a running splash to get a victory for the Sinister Syndicate.

 

Buddy Rose vs. Wahoo McDaniel

 

“Playboy” Buddy Rose has had some difficulty gaining momentum since losing the Southern title to Al Perez, and certainly was facing stiff competition tonight in the person of Wahoo McDaniel. The double tough veteran really took it to Rose, blasting him with brutal chops and kicks as well as twisting his limbs every which way. Rose tried to rally against this withering offense, but his efforts were swiftly shut down by Wahoo. Wahoo had him trapped in the corner and was blistering him with chops, but when the ref tried to separate the two, Rose took advantage by taking the padding off the turnbuckle. When Wahoo came back with an overhand chop, Rose dodged out of the way and Wahoo brought his hand down hard on the exposed turnbuckle bolt. While Wahoo winced in pain, Rose swept him off his feet and put his own feet on the ropes to get the leveraged pin.

 

Da Crusher vs. Dan Spivey

 

This was a show down of the unconventional brawling of Da Crusher and the impressive power offense of Spivey. The battle waged back and forth, with first one man gaining the advantage then the other one fighting back to have the upper hand. It looked like Crusher was starting to pull ahead with a series of clubbing punches, but when he came rushing in for the Bolo Punch, Spivey got his boot up just in time. Crusher was staggerd, and Spivey took him down with a lariat, following up with a big running leg drop to get the win.

 

Nick Bockwinkel vs. Bob Roop

 

After a lengthy way with Playboy After Dark, Bockwinkel seems to have set his sights on challenging the Sinister Syndicate. Facing off against the enforcer of the Syndicate, Nick and Roop has a breathtaking technical showdown that really got the fans attention.  In a match that mostly took place with both men working the mat in the proverbial case of Human Chess, they exchanged leglocks and limb work to try to soften each other up to try and move in for kill. Ultimately , it was Bockwinkel who was able to finally trap Roop in the Figure Four and force him to submit. An impressive victory for Bockwinkel, who looks like he is intending to work his way up the Syndicates chain to challenge for Lex Luger’s American title.

 

AWA Southern Tag Team Title match : Badd Company © vs. Buzz Sawyer & Dave Schultz

 

Another exciting match that pitted the high speed, high flying offense of the champions against the rough and tumble style of Col. Robley’s Army. Sawyer and Schultz were clearly out to inflict some punishment on Sunshine’s men, but Tanaka and Diamond gave as good as they got, showing why they are the champs. Badd Company had Sawyer set up for Tanaka to thrust kick him into a Diamond suplex, but Jesse Barr had rushed out to the ring by this point and yanked down the top rope, causing Tanaka to plummet to the outside. The Army proceeded to beat down the champs until Al Perez charged out to even the sides, forcing a retreat on the part of the Colonel’s soldiers.

 

AWA World Title match : Paul Orndorff © vs. Rick Steiner

 

Orndorff has ducked no challengers in defense of the AWA World Title, and he certainly had his hands full with the powerful rookie Steiner. The University of Michigan letterman brought a wealth of amateur skill to the battle and matched Orndorff suplex for suplex and power move for power move. On a couple of occasions, it looked like Fallen Angel was going to interfere in the match, but then Kevin Sullivan would say something in her ear and she would hold back, as though he had given her the order to stand down while he observed the match.  Steiner was trying to get Orndorff in a belly to back suplex, but Orndorff reversed the waistlock and whipped him into the ropes to catch him in a mighty power slam. One piledriver later and Orndorff had successfully defended his title. Steiner had lost but Sullivan escorted him from the ring with an oddly thoughtful look on his face.

I think Crusher makes a much better heel and he is off and running again.

 

Wondering if the AWA will soon be Bockwinkle's playground as he seems to be own a roll of late.

 

Great use of your roster as always!

That's a really solid roster you have developed there. A nice mix of veterans and young boys. Makes for compelling matches up and down the card.

That show on August 13th is booked so well. Not a bad match on the card. Love to see that.

AWA ends August on a bright note and you've got a couple of guys like Orndorff and Luger who look really strong. I like the build of Atlas back here in AWA and Hennig continues to built the right way.  I am also big on your use of Al Perez. I know he kind of fell out of favor in real life but he has an opportunity here. Keep doing work.

AWA All-Star Wrestling on ESPN / TSN for August 30th

 

Jesse Barr vs. Jerry Bryant

 

Jesse Barr has made his intentions clear since arriving in the AWA that he is gunning for the Southern Title, currently held by Al Perez, and doesn’t seem to care who he has to go through to get at it. Facing off against one half of Memphis Vice, Barr proceeded to batter Bryant from pillar to post, not letting the popular tag wrestler get more than the odd move in before power slamming him for a decisive pin. Clearly the Colonel’s latest recruit is not letting anyone stand in his way in his quest for the belt.

 

Buddy Rose vs. Norman Smiley

 

Buddy Rose has been on the comeback trail since his feud with Nick Bockwinkel, but Smiley would surprisingly turn out to be his stiffest challenge yet. The technically gifted rookie had the Playboy stymied at every turn, even coming close to cinching in the Norman Conquest before Rose got to the ropes and broke up the attempt. It took a particularly nasty cheap shot by Rose to set up the Inside Out Backbreaker to get the win. Rose was sufficiently incensed by the young upstart that he was about to give him another backbreaker after the bell until the ref intervened.

 

AWA Six-Man Title Match : Mike Shaw, Dave Schultz & Buzz Sawyer © vs. Al Perez & Badd Company (with Sunshine)

 

In several past matches between these two factions, the pattern has been that of Col. Robley’s men targeting Perez to try to soften him up for a challenger for his Southern Title. With this match, though, it seems like Perez has had enough of their crap and is fighting fire with fire. He kept his focus on, of all people, “The Tank” Mike Shaw, relentlessly battering his arm with big blows and scissor holds while Badd Company kept Shaw’s partners out of the ring. He kept up this assault until he got Shaw down in his own corner and trapped him with the Japanese Armlock (wakigatame), intensely grinding the hold in while Badd Company held off Sawyer and Schultz until Shaw was forced to give up. The crowd was stunned but soon exploded in cheers as Sunshine’s men each held up two belts in what was a truly shocking result.

 

Sgt. Slaughter vs. Killer Khan

 

Chaos. This match was pure chaos, with the huge new arrival for the Sinister Syndicate furiously brawling with the leader of the Cobra Corps.  The ref pretty much gave up on maintaining any sort of control over the match, just letting them slug it out until they ended up outside the ring and kept at it until they were both counted out. Things got worse after the match with King Kong Bundy and “Crusher” Blackwell got involved, and it took a long time for the AWA officials to get the situation untangled.

 

The Onyx Express vs. Ricky Steamboat & Paul Orndorff

 

Steamboat has had his problems with the members of the Onyx Express in recent house show matches, so he brought in some impressive backup  in the form of his good friend, the World Champion Paul Orndorff. Brickhouse and Koko spent much of their time attacking the neck of Orndorff, wanting to set him up for the Spike Brainbuster. They showed how well they had mastered their tag team skills by frequently drawing Steamboat into the match, then relentlessly double teamed Orndorff as the referee shooed Steamboat out of the ring. Orndorff finally was able to manage a comeback when he dodged a double clothesline attempt by the Express and then fired back with his own double clothesline that flattened both members of the Express. Rather than tag in Steamboat, Orndorff hit Brickhouse with two crushing powerslams before setting him up for the Piledriver. This was the cue for Tony Atlas to charge into the ring and attack Orndorff. While the Onyx Express held off Steamboat, Atlas hit his own powerslam on Orndorff before locking the champ in the Full Nelson for an excruciatingly long time, finally being forced to release it and head back to the locker room by a threat of suspension from the AWA officials. Orndorff now has a deadly new challenger for his belt, who has made his claim in devastating fashion.

Kendo tried to hit the Thrust Kick on Martel, but Martel dodged it and rolled up Kendo for the victory

 

AWA World Title No DQ Cage match : Paul Orndorff © vs. Don Muraco

 

Deep in the match, Sheikh Adnan Al-Kaissie threw a chair over the top into the cage for Muraco to use, but Orndorff grabbed it out of Muraco’s hands and hit him in the head with it. He then gave the piledriver to Muraco on the chair and looked like he was going to do a second one on the chair but instead went for the cover and pinned Muraco, putting an end to his title challenge once and for all.
