SNME 6-30 (Elizabeth NJ) Promos from… Bob Backlund w/ Billy Graham, Jesse Ventura, Yoshiaki Yatsu, Korstia Korchenko, Freddie Blassie, & Arnold Skaaland - "Tonight what you plebians see before you is the greatest collection of wrestling talent ever assembled! 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!" Magnum TA w/ Jimmy Snuka, Rocky Johnson, Jose Gonzales, & Billy Two Eagles - " Killer Khan w/ Lou Albano def. Rene Goulet & Jose Estrada in a handicap match when Khan pinned Goulet at 6:42.

"Fair is fair," Raymond said. Mark Fleming & Barry Horowitz def. The Wild Samoans w/ Lou Albano when Horowitz pinned Afa with a 3/4 nelson cradle at 3:43. Afa was distracted by the Rougeaus arguing with Albano at ringside. After the match, the Rougeaus celebrated with Fleming and Horowitz while the Samoans and Albano retreated from ringside, promising revenge. Jimmy Snuka, Rocky Johnson, Magnum TA, Jose Gonzales, & Billy Two Eagles def. Bob Backlund, Superstar Billy Graham, Jesse Ventura, Yoshiaki Yatsu, & Korstia Korchenko w/ Freddie Blassie & Arnold Skaaland, two falls to one.

    Worldwide trades Jose Luis Rivera to ACCW for Tommy Wright. Effective 7/1, Worldwide trades George Steele to TNT for Bob Roop.

    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?

    Florida is wild as always. Gino is a master manipulator... but you know sooner or later he's going to pull the wrong string and get his. Just a question of who and when. Meanwhile, with the House of Humperdink, "who" is "everybody" and "when" is "all the time". They are taking on all comers and it's glorious.

    Brutal finish to an amazing main event. We were all waiting for something with Borne, I think, and that really delivered.

    Being excited about the Central States title is a weird feeling.

    TNT Wrestling

    The build to Summer Blast has been really strong. Steve O is going to have a problem in Denny Brown win or lose, but Mr Wrestling II is quite the advantage. Funk vs Tito doesn't need any help to draw interest, but Tully waiting in the wings for the winner is something to think about. And I just can't get over Hogan/Jumbo. That's a match I've thought about a lot every time I've gamed out "what if Verne could keep Hogan?" because every time one of my first answers is "main event Hulk Hogan vs Jumbo Tsuruta in three countries".

This week, my Samoans destroy two more pieces of garbage, and take one more step towards their rightful place as tag team champions of the world! And Kamala and Killer Khan will eliminate thirteen other men in this over the top rope battle royal! I only hope they don’t accidentally destroy each other! HAHAHA!” Freddie Blassie w/ Jesse Ventura, Billy Graham, and George Steel – “Magnum TA! You got off easy one time. But there won’t be any security to save you tonight. There won’t be any rules to protect you. That referee can’t do anything but ring that bell when you finally give it up! And Rocky Johnson! We haven’t forgotten about you. The Superstar is gonna take what’s his tonight, and become the face of HBO as the television champion!” Magnum TA – “Animal! You tried to take me out with a sneak attack. A Pearl Harbor job. But you couldn’t get the job done. Well, Magnum TA doesn’t work like that. I’m coming straight for you, Steel. I want you to see me coming. And when I’m done, they won’t have to kick you out. You won’t want to come back to AWA Worldwide!” Bob Backlund title award ceremony. Vince McMahon and other AWA officials present Backlund and Arnold Skaaland with a brand new title belt, engraved with Backlund’s name, representing his reign as the AWA International Heavyweight champion. Backlund takes the mic and thanks McMahon and the AWA for “recognizing the greatness of a true champion in replacing that old hunk of tin which had been sullied by that wretched savage…” until he’s cut off by Snuka running to the ring and attacking him. The brawl between the two men tumbles out of the ring and continues down the aisle as officials and security try to separate them. Jesse Ventura def. Jose Luis Rivera by submission with a bear hug at 2:59. Tag Tournament 1st Round Match – Mark Fleming & Barry Horowitz def. The Batten Twins at 7:42 when Fleming caught Bart with a Thesz press.

WARNING – the following match is an UNSANCTIONED, no disqualification match. Viewer discretion is advised. Magnum TA def. George “The Animal” Steele w/ Freddie Blassie in a “lights out” no-DQ match.

    Full disclosure, I fucked up the date of the Beefcake/Bart trade and that angle wasn't supposed to happen for another two weeks.
