June 1983:


News and Notes:

The AWA suffers a pair of setbacks as longtime promoter and backstage agent Stanley Blackburn retires in early June and Verne Gagne's right hand man Wally Karbo, the AWA's on-screen commissioner, would retire later in the month...65 year old "Classy" Freddie Blassie walks away from wrestling siting age and health concerns...Blassie was one of the most hated heels as a wrestler in the 1960's and had been a manager in the WWF since his in-ring retirement in 1974...AJPW ends it's current tour, releasing several wrestlers including former 6-time NWA World champion Harley Race who returns to NWA Central States Wrestling in St. Louis...former AWA World champion Rick Martel turns down Verne Gagne's offer to return to the AWA and feud with Hulk Hogan over the belt, instead opting to sign an exclusive deal with New Japan Pro Wrestling...



Former AWA champion Rick Martel battles former NWA champ Ric Flair in Yokohama Japan


...despite successfully defending the AWA World title against Greg Gagne on AWA TV, Hulk Hogan loses non-title matches in June to both Gagne and a semi-retired Paul Jones, underscoring Verne Gagne's lack of faith in the blond-haired champion...in Memphis, Jack Brisco defeats Moondog Spot for the AWA Southern Heavyweight title and Randy Savage wins several main event matches...Barry Windham, son of the great Blackjack Windham, wins the top title in Championship Wrestling from Florida...Wahoo McDaniel goes to a no-contest against Dusty Rhodes in a MOTY Candidate (99) held by SWCW...in Texas, Kevin Sullivan and Dr. Death Steve Williams team up as The Varsity Club...the Freebirds win the WCCW 6-man Tag Team titles from the Von Erichs




WWF:
The Wild Samoans win their third WWF Tag Team titles, ending the 8-month reign of Jules & Jay Strongbow...Stan Hansen makes a series of appearances with the WWF...Tommy Rich has a pair of high profile World title defenses, defeating Tully Blanchard by DQ on syndicated TV and pinning Roddy Piper cleanly at the Philadelphia Spectrum to main event a card shown live on closed-circuit TV


'Rowdy' Roddy Piper debuts at Madison Square Garden and challenges new WWF World champion Tommy Rich...Piper would fail to win the title but instantly becomes a top draw for Vince McMahon




GCW:
Austin Idol turns down Buzz Sawyer's offer to replace Tommy Rich as his partner, instead Sawyer turns babyface and teams with Tito Santana but loses a series of main event matches to the East-West Connection, Jesse Ventura and Adrian Adonis...Patera and Duncum shockingly lose the NWA National Tag Team titles to the lower card team of George Wells and Pez Whatley



The flamboyant Jesse Ventura becomes one of the top heels in Georgia




JCP:
While still a member of the roster, top star Ric Flair spends most of his time in Japan and rarely appears on Crockett TV...despite solid matches from Tony Atlas and Wahoo McDaniel, JCP continues to struggle in June...once one of the hottest wrestling shows in the country, JCP's weekly Mid-Atlantic Championship wrestling now averages less than 100,000 viewers per week...JCP signs rookie "Ravishing" Rick Rude to a non-exclusive contract...Rude would get his first professional win teaming with Robert Fuller to beat the team of Koko Ware and Mark Youngblood




NWA:
New NWA World champion Hercules Ayala proves to be a fighting champion, defending the title in CMLL, WWC and NJPW...Ayala scores an upset by cleanly defeating top Japanese star Riki Choshu




RCW:
RCW holds it's third ever event, Battlegrounds '83, in front of 22 fans...George South debuts as George Southern and teams up with fellow rookie Donnie Texas to defeat Doug Vines and JD Greene in the main event...earlier in the night, an unknown scruffy, bearded man who was reportedly seen panhandling outside the VFW before the show ran in from the crowd and chased off heel wrestler Speed Manson who was cutting a nasty promo on the fans...the homeless man was identified only as "Mick" and was escorted from the show by security


Homeless Mick causes a stir in RCW




Up Next: Mid-year report for 1983...ranking the top promotions and a run-down of major champions!

1983 Mid-Year Report


Ranking the top U.S. Promotions:

1- World Wrestling Federation:
As we enter the summer of 1983, the WWF is riding high as the top promotion in the United States. Vince McMahon's raid of the top talent in several NWA territories along with a nationwide syndicated deal for WWF All-Star Wrestling has allowed them to gather the national spotlight. Popular veteran Pedro Morales is the WWF Intercontinental champion, The Wild Samoans just captured the tag titles, stars like Jake "The Snake" Roberts, Larry Zbyszko, Blackjack Mulligan, Tully Blanchard and Gino Hernandez are just entering the promotion; and of course they have the most popular champion in America, "Wildfire" Tommy Rich...oh and Andre the Giant, the most popular wrestler in the world, is about to return from injury.



Along with lunchboxes, action figures and underoos; Tommy Rich hats and t-shirts are flying off the shelves all across the US


2 - Georgia Championship Wrestling:
Despite the loss of Tommy Rich and Larry Zbyszko, GCW is still going strong. World Championship Wrestling on Superstation TBS is the top rated wrestling show in the country, edging out WWF's All-Star Wrestling. GCW is relying largely on Ted Dibiase, Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka, Buzz Sawyer, former WWF champion Billy Graham and the East-West Connection (Jesse Ventura and Adrian Adonis)


Ted Dibiase jumps from Mid-South to GCW and tries to replace Tommy Rich as the #1 fan favorite


3(Tie) - American Wrestling Association:
Once rivaling the WWF, GCW and JCP as one of the top promotions in the US, the AWA is in a downward spiral. Behind the scenes, Wally Karbo and Stanley Blackburn have retired. Popular young babyface Rick Martel won the AWA title from AWA mainstay Nick Bockwinkel only to get injured then bolt for Japan. Hulk Hogan won the vacant belt but has flopped in the eyes of the fans and promoter Verne Gagne.


3(Tie) - World Class Championship Wrestling:
While the AWA is still (slightly) more popular across the country, WCCW is on the way up while the AWA is on the way down. Promoter Fritz Von Erich relies on a small roster featuring his sons (Kevin, David and Kerry), the Freebirds (Michael Hayes, Buddy Roberts and Terry Gordy) along with Buzz Sawyer, Buddy Rose, Kevin Sullivan and "Dr. Death" Steve Williams. WCCW also recently got a national syndicated deal.


5 - Jim Crockett Promotions:
The argument could be made that entering 1983, JCP was the top promotion in the United States. Top star and former NWA world Champion Ric Flair rarely appears on TV, instead touring Japan with NJPW, and even popular mid-card talent like Ron Garvin and Paul Jones are spending more time in New York than in the Carolinas. JCP's weekly Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling has sunk below 100,000 viewers and it looks less and less like Crockett will get his TV on nationally, either through syndication or on cable. Veterans Wahoo McDaniel and Tony Atlas are carrying the workload in JCP, although a couple of rookies in "Hotstuff" Eddie Gilbert and "Ravishing" Rick Rude are making an impression in JCP


Best of the rest:
6 - Southwest Championship Wrestling

7 - Championship Wrestling Association (Memphis)

8 - Mid-South Wrestling

9 - Championship Wrestling from Florida

10 - Central States Wrestling



Sorry for the short post, a stretch of long days at work, if I can't get July posted tomorrow, I'll get two updates posted on Thursday

Waldo has no Blood relationship with the Von Erich clan. Fritz is the father of Kerry, Kevin, David etc.

Waldo was just the kayfabe brother of Fritz.

This is quite enjoyable to read though.

July 1983:


News and Notes:

After the chaotic first half of 1983, July is a calm month without a lot of major changes..."The Living Legend" Bruno Sammartino leaves his role as backstage road agent and occasional on-screen personality with the WWF...Sammartino is reportedly unhappy with WWF's move to a more "entertainment" approach with over the top "cartoonish" characters and storylines...Bruno would be away from the wrestling business for 2 years...longtime NWA promoter Sam Muchnick retires at the age of 77...Bob Geigel takes full control of Central States Wrestling and installs Ken Mantell as head booker...freelancer Ricky Steamboat ends his short run in Georgia and would next appear in CWA (Memphis)...outside of a pair of matches against Jerry Lawler in August, Steamboat's run in CWA would be forgettable...despite "cementing" his title run with a clean win over Nick Bockwinkel, Hulk Hogan's reign with the AWA title continues to be a disappointment...25 year old Curt Hennig wins the AWA Television title...

...Randy Savage becomes a legitimate main eventer in Memphis, turning babyface and beating top heels Dutch Mantell and Moondog Spot...despite the success of the turn, going babyface deprives Savage the chance to wrestle the newly arrived fan favorite Ricky Steamboat...that would have probably been an OK match..."Dirty" Dutch would also appear in Mid-South, failing in two tries to win the NWA Mid-South title from the Junkyard Dog...Kevin Von Erich defeats Buzz Sawyer in the match of the month in WCCW (92)




"Wildfire" Tommy Rich wins the first ever King of the Ring tournament, defeating Gino Hernandez in the tournament finals shown live on closed-circuit TV...Jake "The Snake" Roberts and Larry Zbyszko both debut as heels in the WWF...both would fail to beat Tommy Rich for the WWF title in high profile title matches


Jake Roberts grows out his hair and debuts in the WWF, now accompanied by Damien




With many top stars leaving, GCW begins to cool off but still (barely) manages to hold the TV ratings lead over the WWF...Jimmy Snuka defeats Ken Patera to retain the NWA National Heavyweight title...Ole Anderson moves to the top of the card as a babyface, battling both Adrian Adonis and Jesse Ventura on TBS television in July




Mid-Atlantic Wrestling breaks 100,000 viewers for the last time, but sinks to an all-time low 62,000 viewers the following week...Crockett holds the first ever Great American Bash...despite weeks of hype the show is mediocre at best (57)...Ric Flair makes a rare appearance teaming with Dutch Mantell to beat Tony Garea and Brett Sawyer to win the vacant NWA World Tag Team titles...rookie Rick Rude loses to Randy Mulkey in the opening match


Ric Flair wins the NWA World Tag Team titles with Dutch Mantell at the Great American Bash, but JCP continues to flounder




Hercules Ayala retains the NWA World Heavyweight title twice in July...Ayala goes to a no-contest with Mexican great Rayo de Jalisco Jr. and defeats Canadian Timothy Flowers




No show this month...JD Greene heads to Myrtle Beach, SC. to "scout talent" for RCW, spending the $2000 loan got from local "restaurateur" Paulie Cicero...Greene promises RCW will return with a Halloween themed show in October

August 1983:

News and Notes:

As the WWF and GCW expand nationwide thanks to syndication and cable television, many smaller promotions begin to struggle...SECW, owned by Ron Fuller, loses it's local TV deal thanks to falling ratings...a slew of big name wrestlers from the 1960s and 70s finally hang-up their boots, retirements in August include: the Fabulous Moolah, the Sheik, Tor Kamata, the Crusher, Bob Orton Sr., former WWF World Champion Stan Stasiak, "Maniac" Mark Lewin and Mexican Lucha Libre legend El Santo...Stan Hansen ends his run in the WWF and focuses mainly on Japan for the next year...Veteran Wahoo McDaniel ends Hulk Hogan's disappointing run as AWA champion, defeating Hogan at a tour show in Chicago...



A bloodied Wahoo McDaniel is handed the AWA title after defeating Hulk Hogan in Chicago, August 1983


...McDaniel would hold the belt for the remainder of 1983...Jack Brisco goes on a tear in CWA (Memphis) defeating Dutch Mantell, Jerry Lawler and Road Warrior Hawk to defend the AWA Southern Heavyweight title...WCCW continues to gain momentum, with their weekly syndicated TV program peaking at a little over 750,000 viewers...The Von Erichs enter into a bloody feud with Dr. Death Steve Williams, Kevin Sullivan and Butch Reed



Kevin and Kerry Von Erich during a tag team match with the Varsity Club on WCCW TV




A quiet month for the WWF...Tommy Rich would lose a non-title match to Greg Valentine, but defeat Roddy Piper at Madison Square Garden to retain the WWF World title...former world champ Pedro Morales turns heel and forms a short-lived tag team with Jake "The Snake" Roberts...Tully Blanchard feuds with Jerry Brisco




Despite the recent talent losses, GCW is riding high...World Championship Wrestling on TBS tops the 2.2 million viewers mark, pulling well ahead of the WWF in TV ratings...Paul Orndorff shocks the wrestling world to win the Cadillac Cup held at the Omni in Atlanta...Orndorff defeats Don Muraco, Adrian Adonis and Sgt. Slaughter all in one night to win the prestigious trophy



In an interview with Gordon Solie, Paul Orndorff promises to win the Cadillac Cup tournament...he'd make good on that promise 4 days later at the Omni in Atlanta




Even with Ric Flair on break from NJPW and Wahoo McDaniel carrying the NWA United States Heavyweight title, JCP continues to struggle...youngsters like Rick Rude, Crusher Bloomfield (One Man Gang) and Mark Youngblood get significant TV air time




Hercules Ayala defeats CMLL's Cien Caras at a sold out show in Mexico City to retain the NWA World Heavyweight title




JD Greene takes a job washing dishes at Dennys to raise money for the next River City Wrestling show

Really enjoying this - most interesting thing is how long the other NWA members will allow Ayala to hold on to the title for and when Hogan will finally bolt from the AWA.

Thanks for following. Don't want to give up too many spoilers but let's just say that after Hogan's failed title run, it takes some time before he becomes a major player in the world of wrestling...

...as far as the NWA World title goes, we may see a big name or two somewhere down the line carrying the belt, but the days of guys like Harley Race, Dory Funk Jr., Lou Thesz and Dusty Rhodes trading the title are probably behind us!


Back to posting monthly recaps tomorrow

September 1983

News and Notes:

"Freebird" Michael Hayes suffers a major concussion in a match against Brian Adias on Mid-South TV and would miss the next 13 months of wrestling...on the evening of Friday August 28th the wrestling world is stunned as 30yo Randy Savage dies in a car accident near his Memphis, TN. apartment...


Randy Savage with real life brother Lanny Poffo, picture taken at a house show in Memphis, Savage's last public appearance


...22yo Steve Lombardi debuts and is signed to River City Wrestling...Lombardi would wrestle his first match in October for RCW...with his role in the company diminished, former WWF champion Bob Backlund announces he will tour with New Japan Pro Wrestling while also still appearing in the WWF...also joining the next NJPW tour are Magnum TA, David Von Erich and Barry Windham...the AWA holds it's first ever Superclash in Minneapolis...despite a stellar main event the heavily hyped show bombs (59), further hurting the AWA's reputation and popularity...Hulk Hogan loses to Wahoo McDaniel cleanly in a rematch for the AWA title and slips into the mid-card...McDaniel holds three major titles at the same time: AWA World Heavyweight, NWA United States Heavyweight (JCP) and the SWCW Heavyweight title...Mid-South wrestling turns out some of it's best shows in a long time, featuring Junkyard Dog feuding with Jimmy Garvin and defeating Butch Reed to retain the Mid-South North American title...the Fabulous Freebirds are forced to vacate the WCCW Six-man title belts due to Michael Hayes' injury...the vacant belts would eventually be won by the unusual team of Hercules Ayala, Dory Funk Jr. and Scott Irwin



With Hayes unable to wrestle, he would take the role of manager for Buddy Roberts and Terry Gordy




Andre the Giant makes his big (pun intended) return to the WWF saving Tommy Rich from a two on one beat down at the hands of Larry Zbyszko and Bob Backlund...Andre and Rich would team up to main event a series of shows in a short lived but wildly popular tag team...All-Star Wrestling falls to third in the TV ratings behind GCW and WCCW, but the WWF is still the most popular wrestling federation in America




GCW remains hot, but Ted Dibiase fails as Tommy Rich's replacement, turning heel then slipping down the card...Jimmy Snuka defeats Sgt. Slaughter to retain the NWA National Heavyweight title...The Road Warriors wrestle a series of matches in Georgia...Ken Patera and Bobby Duncum win the NWA National Tag Team titles




Promoter Jim Crockett is widely criticized for using Ric Flair in a series of matches against mid-card talent like Brickhouse Brown and Brett Sawyer instead of having him feud with one of the few other big names left in JCP like Jay Youngblood or Wahoo McDaniel...fans agree with the critics as TV ratings and attendance remain well below what they were a year ago


Instead of feuding with Wahoo for the US title, Flair works the mid-card as JCP flounders




Unlikely NWA champion Hercules Ayala retains the belt in matches against MS-1, Pedro Morales and Invader #1




No show this month as JD Greene begins hyping October's End of Days Show...RCW announces former #1 contender Farmer Boy Ipo has been released due to a "bloated" roster...RCW wishes him the best in all his future endeavors

Thanks for following.


Yeah even in a game that sucked...Randy Savage is one of my all-time favorites. What's worse, in this game he never made it big...nice run in Memphis, some appearances in SECW, his work in his dad's promotion (IWA I think it was) but that's it...no WWF...no GCW...no major titles


As far as PNW, as of late 1987 there trucking along as a regional federation, not much to say, just a decent local wrasslin company trying not to get stomped on by the big national companies...pretty much where they were in real life in 1987

October 1983

News and Notes:

Adding to Jim Crockett's woes, Ric Flair suffers a hernia in a match for the NWA World title against Hercules Ayala in Puerto Rico's WWC...Flair would miss a month and when he returns to action, he'd be back touring with New Japan Pro Wrestling...AWA promoter Verne Gagne calls 'Mr. Electricity' Steve Regal a "friend of the family" in an interview with Pro Wrestling Illustrated...in unrelated news, Steve Regal would team with fellow mid-carder Brad Rheingans to win the AWA World Tag Team titles in November, carrying the belts for six months...After losing the AWA World title to Wahoo McDaniel, Hulk Hogan loses 8 of his next 9 matches (his only win was over rookie Donald Texas)...Hogan quits the AWA in early October...other than a pair of matches in late December in Memphis, Hogan would spend the rest of the year touring with New Japan Pro Wrestling...amateur wrestling star Rick Steiner quits the USA Olympic team 10 months before the Summer games begin in Los Angeles, instead Steiner begins training for professional wrestling...


Michigan wrestling standout Rick Steiner skips the Olympics to learn the pro game...will he have an impact?

...Ricky Steamboat ends his run in CWA (Memphis) and would next appear in Mid-South in November...well respected veteran Chief Jay Strongbow, a 2-time WWF tag team champion, wrestles his final match...Strongbow would stay with the WWF as a backstage road agent for several years...


Chief Jay Strongbow (with Jules Strongbow)...another of the "old guard" retires

...Jerry "The King" Lawler has a run in the AWA, but ratings and attendance continue to drop...Road Warrior Hawk defeats Jack Brisco for the Southern Heavyweight title in Memphis...Ernie Ladd defeats Stan Hansen in one of the best matches in Mid-South history (94)...Buddy Roberts and Michael Hayes turn on former Freebird Terry Gordy in WCCW, turning Gordy babyface for the first time in his career




More of the same for the WWF in October...Tommy Rich defeats Killer Khan to retain the WWF World title...Rich would spend the rest of the month teaming with Andre the Giant in main event matches against the likes of Larry Zbyszko, Bob Backlund, Tully Blanchard and Roddy Piper




GCW continues to lead the TV ratings race, peaking at a record setting 2.6 million viewers for an episode of their weekly Saturday night World Championship Wrestling show...GCW holds The Last Battle of Atlanta, with Jimmy Snuka defeating Billy Graham in the main event...the babyface team of Buzz Sawyer and Tito Santana defeat the East-West Connection on national television (Adrian Adonis and Jesse Ventura)


Gordon Solie interviews Ted Dibiase on World Championship Wrestling...at the time the episode was the highest rated episode for a weekly wrestling program in US History




Despite a few great matches from Flair, McDaniel and Kevin Von Erich, JCP continues to falter..."Jumpin" Jim Brunzell main events Crockett's annual Halloween Show with a win over Chris Colt...the show, dubbed Halloween Havoc, is a disaster (40)




Hercules Ayala holds on to the NWA World title in October, beating Pedro Morales and going to a no contest against former champ Ric Flair




RCW holds End of Days '83 in front of 21 screaming fans...the 90 minute show sees Donnie Texas battle Doug Vines for the RCW Heavyweight title...Texas wins by DQ when JD Greene heads to the ring and attacks Texas..."Homeless" Mick, who again panhandled outside the show to raise money to buy a ticket, rushes out of the crowd for the save!
