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

 

Col. Debeers vs. Greg Gagne

 

Debeers was coming in with a heavily taped shoulder from an injury he sustained in a match with Sgt. Slaughter in Detroit. The veteran Gagne did everything he could to take advantage of that, wrenching the arm in a series of armwringers and peppering him with dropkicks. His luck ran out when he whipped Debeers into the corner and charged in, only to catch a face full of the Colonel’s boot.  Several hard knees to the midsection and a second rope kneedrop, followed by a face first piledriver that dropped him right on his head, and that was the end of Gagne’s challenge.

 

Pat Tanaka & The Razor Boys vs. Tom Zenk & Death Sentence

 

While Tanaka and the Razor Boys have been dominant as Southern champion and World Tag champs, respectively, Zenk and Death Sentence have been presenting strong challenges to those titles.  The Neighborhood Of Evil were incredibly aggressive in this match, with a plethora of double and triple teaming. The Sunshine Boys fought back hard, and were rallying when Paul Diamond had Jeff Gaylord trapped in a neutral corner and was standing on the second turnbuckle , raining punches down on his face. However, Tom Zenk took advantage of a ref distraction and grabbed Diamond by the hair and drove him, face first, on the corner post. Gaylord then covered him with his feet on the ropes, getting the one two three. Diamonds partners cried foul, but the decision stood.

 

Buddy Rose & Doug Somers vs. Rocky Mountain Thunder

 

Playboy After Dark have had some tough battles with the various members of the Cobra Corps, but after recent events, seem to be scared to death of big Leon White. They put a lot of effort into keeping him out of the ring, relentlessly double teaming Scorpio and trapping him in their corner. Several times it looked like Scorpio might be able to tag out, only for Rose and Somers to distract the ref or prevent the tag in some other way. White finally had enough and charged into the ring, and when the ref tried to send him out, White backhanded him and sent him flying into the corner. As White pummeled Rose and Somers, the ref eventually recovered enough to call for the DQ, but the former Colorado Buffalo didn’t seem to notice as he tore into the members of Playboy After Dark. It took both Too Cold Scorpio and Sgt. Slaughter to get White calmed down and out of the ring.

 

Bill Dundee & Shane Douglas vs. Jake Roberts & Nord The Barbarian

 

Dundee and Douglas have been gaining momentum of late, picking up some impressive victories over the Guerreros in singles action and even a tag victory over Roberts and Barbarian at a recent house show. The Snakepit, on the other hand, have experienced mounting frustration, not just with the loss to Dundee and Douglas but having failed to get a decisive victory over Piper’s Pit. This was a fast paced and competitive match, with the speed and enthusiasm of Dundee and Douglas providing a tough counter for the guile and power of Snake and Barbarian. After Roberts spent a long time in the ring trying to best his opposition, it looked like they would decisively take the lead when he tagged in the huge Barbarian, but out of nowhere,  Dundee hit a running cross body press combined with a schoolboy trip from Douglas that scored the shocking pinfall. While Dundee and Douglas celebrated, Roberts just sat in the corner and stared blankly at Nord.

 

AWA Southern Tag Team Title Match : British Steel © vs. The British Bullies

 

The popular young team of Steven Regal and Norman Smiley pulled off an impressive upset last week by taking the Southern Tag straps away from Black Irish. This time, they would be defending against the incredibly tough tandem of David Taylor and Marty Jones, led by Sheikh Adnan Al-Kaissie. In spite of the considerable technical expertise of the Bullies, British Steel kept the momentum of the match in their favour for a long period of time before some interference by the Sheikh tipped it over to his men. Jones and Taylor than proceeded to start to work over Smiley, but they didn’t have much time to do it before someone charged into the ring and attacked them, leading to a DQ decision. It was Chris Adams, who hadn’t been seen since being beaten down and fired by the Sheikh and his men 2 weeks ago! He tore into his former compatriots, but 3 against 1 would prove to be too great odds to overcome, and British Steel, no fans of Adams, swiftly left the ring and abandoned him to his fate. The Syndicate pounded on him again and the Bullies held him up while the Sheikh looked to take him out for good with a chair shot to the head, but Adams stopped him with a boot to the midsection, then pulled himself free from the grasp of Taylor and Jones. He grabbed the chair and swung it wildly, sending the Syndicate scurrying back to the locker room. Adams was able to make it out this time, but how much longer can he hold out, with no friends to back him up?

 

AWA American Title Match : Dan Spivey © vs. Jerry Blackwell

 

Spivey , similar to Col. Debeers,  was going into the match with a heavily taped arm, and that provided a particularly tempting target for the Crusher. Blackwell went after the damaged arm mercilessly with slams and arm bars, and Spivey was clearly in a lot of pain for much of this match. The determined American champ kept battling back, and was able to send Blackwell out of the ring with a left armed Spivey Bomber. Blackwell landed hard and was not able to get back into the ring in time, leading to a countout victory by the champ. Even after the match, Blackwell and his partner, Ken Patera, kept attacking Spivey. Patera held Spivey down with his arm outstretched, and Blackwell looked to do a running splash on it, which might well have done irreparable damage to it. Luckily for Spivey, his partner, Mike Rotundo, rushed to the ring and prevented the blow from landing, but the ordeal had still taken a heavy toll on the American champ.
