THE BRAWL TO END IT ALL WARNING - The main event of tonight's show is UNSANCTIONED by the American Wrestling Association, and may not be suitable for all viewers. Viewer discretion is advised. 1. AWA World Junior Heavyweight Title – Brad Armstrong © pinned Billy Two Eagles after a side Russian leg sweep at 12:57 to retain the AWA World Junior Heavyweight title. 2.

Ricky Steamboat to retain the AWA International Heavyweight Title. Steamboat had Backlund trapped in a small package, but Skaaland distracted the referee and Yoshiaki Yatsu, at ringside, pushed the wrestlers over so Backlund was on top. Backlund gets the pin at 13:57. 5. The Rougeaus and ANDRE THE GIANT def. Afa, Sika, Kamala, & Killer Khan w/ Lou Albano in an eight man, no-disqualification, "I Quit" two-ring cage match. Andre was the last team member to appear, leg still in a cast from last month's attack. He was clearly hobbled but still capable. Jacques Rougeau forced Sika to submit to a Boston Crab at 21:22. Jacques and Raymond Rougeau were awarded the tag team titles as a result.

    Summer Blast was everything I wanted it to be. (OK, I was really looking forward to Hulk/Jumbo, but these things happen. And DiBiase/Jumbo is a hell of a consolation prize.) Funk/Tito was a show-stealer. Lotta different ways you could go from that, and I can't wait to see what you pick.

    God, writing Savage must be so much fun. Mach vs Link, yes. Mach vs Gino? Yes, please and thank you. Tonga's been a favorite of mine since... well, since about '84, actually. Love him coming in. Nice little run for Rocky, too. Might have to have some clips of that on HBO!

    I know I owe everybody a bunch of commentary on their shows, too, especially the new people. I'll get caught up... someday. (7/14/84) Home Box Office, in association with Titan Sports, presents, live from Boston Garden in Boston, Massachusetts Tonight's slate of professional wrestling action is sanctioned by the American Wrestling Association and the Massachusetts State Athletic Commission. Footage from a mid-week meeting at Titan Sports headquarters. Vince McMahon is in a room with Lou Albano, his whole crew, and all three Rougeaus. According to McMahon, athletic commissions are breathing down his neck, and the AWA will not allow this sort of chaos to continue. Therefore he has no choice but to suspend all seven men for at least a month, and no future matches will be booked between them. Lots of yelling Lots and lots of yelling Finally, everyone quiets down and Jacques speaks. He reminds Vince that when Magnum and Steele got out of control, they got an unsanctioned match to settle their differences. They all deserve the same chance. He makes this offer – one unsanctioned cage match, Albano’s men on one side, the Rougeaus and a partner of their choosing on the other. No disqualifications. No pinfalls. “Submit or surrender!” If Albano’s men win, the Rougeaus will voluntarily leave the territory for at least one year. If the Rougeau’s team wins, the winner of the fall and a partner of his choice get the Samoans’ tag titles. “Who we defend them against is up to you.” More yelling Finally, though, Albano agrees to the deal, and Vince relents. “One last match, then. Unsanctioned. Whatever happens, it’s on you. But I’m not booking you until then and I’m not booking you against each other ever again. It’ll be one brawl to end it all.” Yoshiaki Yatsu w/ Arnold Skaaland forced Rene Goulet to submit to the prison lock at 6:17. SD Jones pinned Yasuyuki Fujii with a flying headbutt at 4:27. The Killer Bs w/ Freddie Blassie went to a 20 minute time limit draw with Pedro Morales and Johnny Rivera. Bob Roop pinned Jose Gonzales with a shoulderbreaker at 8:00. Gonzales complained that his foot was on the ropes, but the referee insisted he didn’t see it. Rocky Johnson def. Superstar Billy Graham w/ Freddie Blassie and Jesse Ventura at 12:12 by disqualification. Ventura tripped Johnson several times throughout the match, leading to swings in momentum and nearfalls. Eventually the referee caught him and disqualified Graham for outside interference, to many complaints from Blassie and his men. Junior HW Tournament Final – Billy Two Eagles pinned Dave Morgan with a cross body block at 9:43. Tag Tournament Final – Mark Fleming & Barry Horowitz def. Billy Robinson & John Quinn at 13:15 when Fleming pinned Quinn with a backslide. Bob Backlund w/ Arnold Skaaland def. Jimmy Snuka by countout at 15:52 to retain the AWA International title. The two men were brawling on the floor. Backlund hit an atomic drop that drove Snuka into the ringpost. Backlund was able to beat the count; Snuka was not.

    I kept meaning to ask about Ontario and then forgetting. I'm happy to split it w/ Great Lakes and/or Stampede.

The forces no promoter ever wanted to see joined, myself and the Olympian Mr. Yoshiaki Yatsu-san alongside Mr. Blassie's men - the great Billy Graham, the estimable Jesse Ventura, and the acceptable Korstia Korchenko. And to oppose us we have that backstabbing coward James Snuka, the paper champion Rockald Johnson, Magnum TA - if that is your real name - Jose Gonazales, and a rookie - A ROOKIE - named William Two Eagles. I am insulted, INSULTED, at the disrespect I have been shown as a champion in being subjected to this farce of a match. And I will take that disrespect out on each and every one of you!"

    OK, that makes way more sense. Though now I kinda want an Armstrong/Cameron match.

    Good lord, look at that Star Wars card. I don't want to say "every match a main event" but I count at least five. You could probably do a tv show with no wrestling at all and be fine with Watts, Cornette, JR, and Bockwinkel jawing at each other, but Windham vs DJ and the Midnights defending the titles make for some compelling television.

    I've never thought of Cameron as a light heavyweight, but I'm not complaining about the matchup. Good week for the whole Armstrong family.

    Hot Stuff is one disfunctional organization and I love it. Big face turn from Bret, which had to come in Canada. Heenan, as always, outsmarts himself. Hogan vs Bad News was everything we could ask for. But where do the Sheiks go from here?
