10/8/91

AIW Sunday Transmission TV (for 10/13/91)

West Bradley Place

Chicago, IL

 

X) Backstage, AIW Championship Committee member Ricky Romero announced the 12-man field for the tournament to crown the first-ever AIW Light Heavyweight Champion. It would include 2 Cold Scorpio, Blue Panther, Eddie Guerrero, Owen Hart, The Lightning Kid, Jerry Lynn, Dean Malenko, Joe Malenko, Misterioso, Naoki Sano, Minoru Suzuki, & John Tatum. The triangle elimination match final would be held at Hallowed Ground with quarterfinal and semifinal matches to be held on Transmission TV episodes into the runup starting with next Saturday's episode.

1) Debbie Combs defeats Mima Shimoda via submission after applying a Figure Four Leglock. (6:02)

X) Terry Gordy, joined by Jeff Jarrett and Buddy Landel, came out to voice his displeasure at having to wait for Rick Rude to receive his rematch to get his own shot at the AIW Heavyweight Championship, but that he would gladly take his time to let the two of them "beat each other half to death" so he could just reap the rewards at Hallowed Ground, where he WOULD officially take his title match. For the time being, however, he wanted to conduct some "Cartel business and crack a few skulls" and called out any three men in the locker room to face off with him, Jarrett, & Landel, which was met with the ever-ominous site of the Samoan Death Squad.

2) Fatu, The Great Kokina, & Samu vs. Terry Gordy, Jeff Jarrett, & Buddy Landel ended in a time-limit draw. After the match ended, TNT & The Headhunters rushed the ring and attacked the SDS, who were then faced by Tatanka and the Youngbloods in a now-signature uncontrollable West Bradley Place brawl. (15:00)

3) Doug Furnas & Dan Kroffat defeat Bam Bam Bigelow & Black Magic via pinfall by Kroffat on Bigelow after a release German suplex by Furnas followed by a senton bomb by Kroffat. (14:55)

Plus some of them had tons of fun gaijin, W*ING & IWA being the most obvious, with the Puerto Ricans & Headhunters, the slasher gimmick guys, a light heavyweight tournament in W*ING that had fuckin' Jimmy Del Ray and motherfuckin' Bill Dundee.

 

Tokyo Pro might be slightly better-known but even a classic ECW staple like Sabu-Scorpio is better on a card with a Yoji Anjo-Takashi Ishikawa match second from the top.

NOMINATING

 

KUSHIDA vs. Zack Sabre, Jr. (RevPro, 4/13): Just an excellently-worked technical title match. None of either's guys most prominent weaknesses showed up, and with two guys this talented, that just means really good wrestling. I like "really good wrestling".

 

YES to ParK-Rush. It had a "ParK in 2017" finish, sure, but why would you possibly care about that anymore? Two of the most charismatic wrestlers anywhere of the last twenty years just shutting down the building. Such a great match.

The Lesnar title match is GREAT.
