The Big Dan Boot, followed by the Big Dan Leg Drop... hmmm... maybe Real American Machine is Dan Spivey!

 

Fact is, no one has ever seen them in the same room at the same time.

I know I'm way behind but I loved the debut of Col Debeers and Sabu.

I like the movement of the AWA and how people are falling into place. I look forward to your consistency with this group and how they will build up feuds with one another.

I like the name "Playboy After Dark" as it reminds me of an old TV show. I would however like to see some more play by play description for the matches.

AWA All-Star Wrestling on ESPN / TSN, May 16th

 

Col. Debeers vs. Jacob Derwin

 

Buddy Rose was looking like the proverbial cat that ate the canary as he led his powerful new cohort to the ring. Less happy about this was young rookie Derwin, who was probably wishing he hadn’t gotten out of bed this morning. Debeers unleashed a savage mauling on Derwin, dropping him hard on his head on multiple occasions before finally polishing him off with the face first piledriver. If Sgt. Slaughter is going to get revenge on Debeers and Playboy After Dark, he certainly has his work cut out for him.

 

The Great Kabuki & Nord The Barbarian vs. Ken Patera & Crusher Blackwell

 

Kabuki and Nord have made for an unusually alliance, with Sunshine’s personal bodyguard and the powerful stalwart of the Snakepit finding common ground in their mutual hatred of Sheikh Kaissie’s men.  Patera and Blackwell went at it full force against them, with all four men getting busted open at different points. It was all Kabuki and Nord could do just to survive, but Kabuki was able to catch Patera in a series of vicious kneestrikes to the head, and followed up with a roundhouse kick that was just barely able to get the three count. Kabuki and Nord won this round, but you can bet they aren’t done with the Syndicate.

 

Sabu vs. Brendan Shapiro

 

The mysterious man who attacked Cactus Jack last week turns out to be named Sabu, rumoured to be the nephew of the original Sheikh. He certainly seems to have inherited his uncle’s trademark insanity, mauling young Shapiro both inside and outside of the ring. Roddy Piper was clearly finding all of this incredibly amusing, as he chortled at ringside while he watched the massacre.  Sabu seemed to finally put Shapiro out of his misery with a top rope legdrop, but even that wasn’t enough, as  Piper proceeded to slap Shapiro’s face as the rookie lay unconscious on the mat. Is it just me, or has Piper’s Pit gotten even crazier?

 

AWA Southern Tag Team Title Match : Black Irish © vs. British Steel

 

British Steel put in a very concerted effort to wrest the Southern Tag Titles from their hated rivals in Black Irish. They worked hard to keep Finlay in their corner of the ring, tagging in and out and breaking him down with submission holds. Regal nearly had him set up for the Regal Stretch, but Finlay busted out of it by just repeatedly punching him hard in the face and was able to make the hot tag to Cameron.  Normally, this would be where it would be all over, but Regal was able to keep ducking and dodging and staying one step ahead, before Cameron was finally able to nail him with the leaping clothesline. One … two … no!!! Regal just got his shoulder up in time! A frustrated Cameron hoisted him over his shoulder to polish him off with the running powerslam, but Regal got out of it with a slide down and sent Cameron chest first into the turnbuckle, following up with a roll up that got a two and a half count.  He then tagged in Smiley, who was endeavouring to cinch in the Norman Conquest when the bell rang, signaling a 15 minute time limit draw. Both sides continued to battle after the bell, showing that British Steel’s challenge for the belt will continue.

 

Hector Guerrero vs. Shane Douglas

 

Last week, Shane Douglas pulled off what some consider to be an upset with a victory over Mando Guerrero. His brother Hector was clearly out to show that as just a fluke, as he really took it to Douglas with all of the tricks in his considerable arsenal. Douglas kept at it, with Bill Dundee cheering him on, firing back with dropkicks and high flying. Hector looked like he was going to finally put him down with the double underhook suplex, but Douglas dug in to block it, then powered out with a backdrop. Hector showed his resilience by bridging up, but Douglas was ultimately able to reverse this with a backslide that got the one two three. Douglas and Dundee were jubilant that he had once again been able to pull out the win.

 

Dan Spivey & Mike Rotundo vs. Kevin Sullivan & Tom Zenk

 

With Death Sentence currently in Japan, Sullivan brought the newest member of his stable to try to get revenge on the former Varsity Club standouts.  The anger that Sullivan and Zenk brought to the bout was, if anything, matched on the other side, as Spivey and Rotundo had clearly had a bellyful of Sullivan’s attitude and were looking to release some pent up aggression on him. The momentum of the match swung back and forth , with Sullivan and Zenk pulling out every underhanded tactic they could think of and Rotundo and Spivey countering with a blend of power and skill. Rotundo had Sullivan set up for the Varsity Rush , but Zenk hit him in the head with Sullivan’s Golden Spike, and then went on to attack Spivey with it as the ref called for DQ. They continued their assault until Brian Pillman rushed to the ring, swinging a chair and running them off.

I know that in real life Kevin Sullivan's act became somewhat tiresome but I just found him to be so good on the mic that he was awesome.  I feel the same way about him in the AWA.  To me, ne never needs a title to be the most intriguing player in the game.

Oh man Piper and Sabu vs. Jake and Cactus, DeBeers vs. Slaughter and Steamboat vs Bock, the fans in Denver got their money's worth and then some. Putting Sabu with Piper is genius. I like seeing Zenk as a heel. I think he can really pull this off especially with Sullivan coaching him. Count me in as an All Star Squadron fan. Watching Tanaka defend his Southern title week in and week out has been a treat. Looking forward to more Black Irish/British Steel matches. The AWA is so well balanced, something for everyone.

Not fair posting 3 shows in a row!  British Steel and Black Irish would get me into the building any day of the week.  The Piper/Jake tag and Steamboat vs. Bock would have been incredible.  Pillman is on fire and Sabu is really making an impact.

Really! I'm sure it's all great stuff as usual, but maybe take some of that energy and post a comment on someone else's shows ;)

Building DeBeers up as a real threat makes sense.

Kabuki and Nord are indeed an entertaining team-up.

Adding Sabu to this roster (and to Pipers Pit) almost seems unfair. Looking forward to reading about his exploits.

The Varsity Club angle continues to run hot.

As I expected, it's all great stuff. You have a great roster and you are using everyone on it really well.

Ottawa Comic Con.

 

Did they get wrestlers at their Comic Con? They only had some in the first 2 in Quebec City and they haven't had in awhile. Almost considering going to Montreal's if I'd know I wouldn't have too much of a workload this summer.
