Special Announcement

The Great American Bash Tour will beginning after the after the next episode of WCW and with that will come a longer, more involved prediction game with some decently high stakes. That said, there will be a special one-off prediction game for the Eddie Graham Memorial Show 1987. It's a quick, 1-show game, so the prize (once I figure one out) will most likely be a small one.

This show will not be written up in full detail (expect something like the April Supershow) since it's not being broadcast. The events and results from this show will have in-game consequences however.

I expect to post the show in about 24 hours, so this will be a quick turnaround.

Fijian Strap Match for the NWA World Championship: Jimmy Snuka vs. Ric Flair (c)
There will be interference from the Horseman in this one

The Super Powers vs. The Russian Team
I originally picked the Super Powers....but maybe Texas Red makes an appearance instead

Mike Graham vs. Baron Von Raschke
The Baron needs a win after agreeing to lose to Scott Hall

Hector Guerrero, Wahoo McDaniel & Shane Douglas vs. Big Bubba Rogers & The Midnight Express w/ Jim Cornette
Cornette will be involved here

The Road Warriors & The Fantastics vs. Kevin Sullivan, The Barbarian & The Grapplers
I don't think even Twin Magic will help the Grapplers here.....but if the Warrior/Fantastics team do lose, it won't be Hawk or Animal counting the lights

Tom Horner vs. Lex Luger w/ JJ Dillon
No Brainer there

The Garvins w/ Precious vs. Barry Windham & Manny Fernandez w/ Paul Jones
Im torn on this one....but I think the heels will prevail

Scott Hall vs. Brian Adams
The streak continues for the moustachio'd man mountain

Television Championship: Ole Anderson vs. Arn Anderson (c) w/ JJ Dillon
A good old fashioned time limit draw

World Tag Team Championship: The Rock n' Roll Express (c) vs. The Sheepherders
I'm going for a surprise title change, with the RnR getting the straps back during the Bash tour

Brad Armstrong vs. Ron Simmons

Mike Rotundo & Jimmy Valiant vs. Dick Murdoch & The Spoiler
Someone needs building up for Murdoch.....why not Captin' Mike

Tie Breaker #1) What will be the highest rated match on the show? Super Powers/Russians
Tie Breaker #2) What will be the lowest rated match on the show? Horner/Luger
Tie Breaker #3) What overall letter grade will the show receive? B+

Ric Flair - Sorry Jimmy, even in your own style of match it just isn't going to happen.
Super Powers - No one can withstand American and Russian Dreams united!
Mike Graham - Given it's his dad's tribute show, he should probably pick up a nice win.
Camp Cornette - I know you haven't technically given them that name, but it does fit no matter the time period.
Road Warriors & Fantastics - I'm calling this one a DQ finish, as either someone new to the party interferes or Sullivan uses an international object to blast Hawk with.
Lex Luger
The Garvins - I don't think Windham really cares much about the Jones Army, so he would leave Manny to get beaten by Ron if push came to shove.
Scott Hall - Two big hoss-like studs here, but only one has the majestic mustache that we love around here!
Anderson time limit draw - 10 minute time limit rears it's ugly head here as Arn plays keep-away long enough to retain the title. This one should be a really fun draw on the GAB Tour.
RNR Express - By pinfall or by DQ, the Express retain.
Ron Simmons - Brad may be still getting the push, but at some point Ron will catch him, and then it'll be lights out.
Rotundo & Valiant - Mike would make a solid US champ, but he'd be better if you were to eventually set up a heel turn for him. For now though, he'll make a good run.

1. Snuka vs. Flair
2. Horner vs. Luger
3. B+

Sorry for the bump, but I wanted to mention to anyone who enjoys this diary or NWA wrestling from this time period, you need to listen to the What Happened When Mondays podcast with Tony Schiavone and Conrad Thompson that came out today. Today's episode is almost 3 full hours on the Horsemen. As you can always expect with any Conrad Thompson show, it's super well researched and informative. Super enjoyable listen and is getting me even twice as excited about running forward with this diary.

Thanks for this SLM! Having a great sense of the time period and characters is probably the biggest compliment you could pay me, as that's probably what I value more than all else. Also, nice of you to mention my '91 WWF diary. That's a project/era that I feel I have some unfinished business with and will return to again (with fresh eyes and a new save) at some point I think. Something about that project burned me out much too early and I never got anywhere close to where I wanted to go. I think it's feeling trapped in the early portion of that game with WM7. Logically, you really can only go to Hogan/Savage or Hogan/Slaughter and by default Warrior gets the other guy. That said, after WM7, that time period opens up in-game tremendously and there are a ton of options to go.

As far as Podcasts go....especially historical ones, I highly recommend "The Lapsed Fan Wrestling Podcast" it's one of the most in depth and frankly hilarious podcasts out there.....they have reviewed every Starrcade from the beginning....(so the 86 and 87 Cades might be worth a listen for here) as well as every Mania from 1-30whatever we are now, 35? And when I say in depth, I mean in depth, the history and storylines surrounding the event, the state of the business at the time, what's going on in other feds.....hence why Wrestlemania 17 for example is a seven hour podcast! Too long you say? Not once you start listening it's not. My dog has never had such long walks until I discovered this show. Give the Starrcades a listen

Sounds interesting! I'll have to check it out. Sounds similar to one of my favorites, The Old School Wrestling Podcast. These guys review old school events/angles/etc. with a very healthy mix of humor.

Ronnie! I would've had a nearly perfect score on this show except not seeing that injury coming! Well, hopefully Barry finds something better to do until Garvin comes back. I don't know if a feud for now with Jimmy Jam would have quite the same effect.

This outlines the one stumbling block I always have when playing JCP in 87. With Lex having JUST joined the Horsemen, I can't want take him immediately back out to add Windham to the lineup. But by 87 he is just such a stale babyface, Barry needed the huge heel turn that he got in 1988. But it just doesn't feel right to not have him turn to join the Horsemen because along with Flair, Arn and, Tully, he was just such a perfect fit.

Regardless, good Graham show
