WWF All Star Wrestling – June 28, 1980

Coming off a pretty impressive show last week, we return to Hamburg, PA for the next episode. Tonight we have Pat Patterson versus Johnny Rodz plus Ivan Putski and Rene Goulet in action. I guess Putski gets the big run of matches this taping cycle, at least it’s not Larry Sharpe. Let’s go to the ring. Read More »

WWF All Star Wrestling – June 21, 1980

Continuing along on All Star Wrestling, tonight we get Hulk Hogan in another handicap match and the debut of the Hangman.

WWF All Star Wrestling – April 26, 1980

Last week’s show was the start of a new taping cycle as I thought, wish they’d tell you that. One good thing with WWF Superstars/Challenge in the mid eighties was they would welcome you to the arena so you knew when it was a new rotation. These shows were from April 16th 1980, but still the same building just a slightly different layout in Hamburg, PA. Lots of good stuff on this final episode of April, so let’s go to the ring.

WWF All Star Wrestling – February 23, 1980

Here we go with the final show for February, as it’s been a pretty good month of programs so far. Hopefully we end the month on a high note. Let’s go to the ring.

Vince and Bruno welcome us to the show in classic yellow suits. They go over tonight’s lineup with Atlas, Goulet, Putski, Santana and so much more. Vince mentions Larry is coming up tonight and Bruno says the fans are not as bitter as he is.Read More »

WWWF From Madison Square Garden – August 7, 1976

Finally back to Old School WWF programming. The Network has since updated and finding the Hidden Gems, in the ring order, is almost impossible so I think those are going on the back burner. However for now, we’re going back to 1976 for the next house show, from as always, Madison Square Gardens. Since the last house show the Tag Championships have changed hands, Louis Cerdan and Tony Parisi dropped the gold on May 11th to the Executioners, Killer Kowalski and Big John Studd. Bruno Sammartino is still the reigning World Champion, midway through his second year of a three and a half year reign. With that let’s see what is happening in the Gardens, let’s go to the ring.

WWWF From Madison Square Garden – March 17, 1975

Here we go with the next show from the WWF, as we jumped forward almost two full years. Since the last show Pedro Morales has since lost the WWWF World Championship to Stan Stasiak who quickly lost it, nine days later, to Bruno Sammartino. Bruno would then begin his second legendary title reign. The Tag Team Championships changed hands multiple times in the two years between shows, your current champions are the Valiant Brothers, Jimmy and Johnny, who won the gold on May 8, 1974. This episode is not a full show, as it only clocks in under an hour but features Bruno defending the title against Spiros Arion plus appearances from Killer Kowalski and Ivan Putski. Let’s head down to ringside for our opening contest.Read More »
