    HOUSE SHOW: Saturday 4/10 | Pittsburgh, PA @ Civic Arena (18,293; Sellout) Jim Powers/Paul Roma defeated Ken Pearson/Bobby Strom with the suplex/splash combo.

Killer Bees defeated Red Scare (w/Fred Blassie) with a double-dropkick on Boris Zhukov. Kerry Von Erich defeated Brutus Beefcake with a flash crucifix.

Match broke down into an all-over 6-way at the end.

WWF Heavyweight Champion Hulk Hogan defeated ‘Ravishing’ Rick Rude (w/Jimmy Hart) by DQ. Massive heat for Rude. Roof flew off the moment “Eye of the Tiger” kicked in & Hogan hit the ring to a jarring ovation. Nonstop, seesaw heart-pounder the whole way. Toward the end, Hogan mounted a dramatic comeback, knocking Rude pillar to post. Rude desperately yanked the ref in the path of Hogan’s follow-in clothesline to the corner. Rude held Hogan for Hart, who missed a megaphone shot & leveled Rude instead, sending the place into a frenzy! As Hogan stalked Hart, Masa Saito ran down & ambushed Hogan. BONSAI CLAW! Hart gets some kicks in too. Killer Bees storm to the ring right away, as Saito clears out & never looks back. Hogan recovers, since the Bonsai Claw wasn’t locked in for long this time, but still feels the effects. Battered Rude & Hart also retreat, leaving Hogan standing tall with the Title & his buds. Pandemonium in Pittsburgh, as a now-pissed-off, battered Hogan rocks the house with the Bees to close out the night.

    TV: All-Star Wrestling - Saturday 4/10 (Poughkeepsie, NY @ Mid-Hudson Civic Center: TAPING #2. Vine McMahon & Jack Reynolds on commentary.) [Opening Credits package plays. WE then filter into the building with a lively crowd. Vince & Jack are at the commentary platform.] Iron Sheik/Red Scare (w/Fred Blassie) defeated Barry Nip/Sumner Singh/Pete Brass when Sheik submitted Singh with the Camel Clutch. Pre-match, thunderous heat for the salute of the Soviet flag & Nikolai’s singing of the Russian anthem. [Piper’s Pit: Studd’s on-set this time, relaxing on the sofa as Piper insults the crowd for being excited that Hulk Hogan’s on the show this week. He then introduces his guest, the “rightful Champion”, David Schultz. MASSIVE BOOS. Schultz thanks Piper for acknowledging the obvious & says Hogan would hand over the belt to him later in the show, if he had any character. Says Slaughter is cut from the same cloth. Piper asks what he thinks about Slaughter being on his trail. Schultz says he’s not - it’s all bluster from Slaughter to save face for getting BEAT at Survivor Series. Says he heard Slaughter might even be getting a restraining order to keep Schultz from him. Suddenly, place explodes as Slaughter comes out behind Schultz with a trash can! Piper’s trying to alert Schultz & Slaughter CLOCKS Schultz from behind with the can! Slaughter wields the can to keep an outraged Piper & Studd at bay! Schultz staggers up & Slaughter houses him to the back with repeated, staggering can-shots to the skull until they disappear in the tunnel.] Hillbilly Jim defeated Sean Keys with the running vertical Big Boot in the corner. Sam Houston defeated Trapper Gary with a bulldog. [I-C Champion Tito Santana vs. Virgil is next week’s main event. Piper’s Pit: guest Paul Orndorff.] A sullen Greg ‘The Hammer’ Valentine (w/Bobby Heenan) submitted Art Long in 2 mins with the Figure Four. Taunting ‘Sting’ chants rained down from the crowd, irritating Valentine & Heenan. MAIN EVENT: Non-Title - WWF Heavyweight Champion Hulk Hogan vs. Al Snow “Eye of the Tiger” blew the roof off the joint as Hogan (yellow tights/yellow knee pads/white boots, ripped white fabric headband with excess cloth dangling into his mouth) happily paraded through the rabid humanity on his way to the ring. Flashbulbs popping like an indoor lightning storm as Hogan storms to the apron & fires up! He gets into the ring, ripping off the shirt & calmly shows off the belt to his adoring populous! Snow ambushes from behind with forearms & punches that land wherever they land! 10 seconds of this & Hogan straightens up, feeling no pain! Snow knows he’s dead! Hogan turns around & goads him to hit him some more! Hogan’s wading through the barrage, walking forward! Hogan UNLEASHES HELL with rabbit rights & lefts, knocking him from pillar to post with roundhouses, follow-in clothesline to the corner, backdrop to the heavens, slams, elbowdrops, and 2 fingers to the eyes that send Snow tumbling through the ropes to the floor. Hogan’s not even breaking a sweat, enjoying himself with the crowd! Hogan rolls out & tosses Snow back in. Hogan whips him to the ropes & dips his head for a backdrop… Snow comes off & kicks him in the head! But Hogan’s unphased! Hogan lunging-lariats Snow out of his boots, immediately pops up, hits the ropes & comes off with a towering legdrop, leisurely leaning against him like a loveseat for the easy 1-2-3!! Hogan hops up & happily accepts his Title belt, as “Eye of the Tiger” hits! Party’s on now. The bone-dry Heavyweight Champ calmly holds the belt up to all sides of the building & starts striking a few random bodybuilder poses, different for each side. Utter pandemonium! His last pose is a drop to 1 knee with the belt over his shoulder & striking a bicep curl with his free arm. Epitome of cool! He then points to the heavens in thanks & hops out of the ring, heading up the aisle with 1 hand raising the belt high, as he wades through the reaching arms like the rock star he is & the show goes off the air. Winner: Hulk Hogan by Pinfall @ 2:52

Says, now that he’s standing again, don’t go to sleep anytime soon, cuz vengeance is coming when they least expect.] Dino Bravo defeated Charles Head.

Slaughter vs. David Schultz in a No DQ Match.] [Pre-recorded: Andre the Giant stands tall on a cliff overlooking crashing waves below in a part of the world that looks like a true-to-life postcard. As the wind blows his shirt & hair, he intently tells Roddy Piper he’s sending him this message from this place for a reason. Says he’s not sending this to soothe Piper’s nerves, but to let him know that Piper’s gonna feel like he fell off a cliff this high when Andre’s done wringing his toothpick neck. Says Studd will leave Piper high & dry, and go hide in a cave, long before Andre snaps Piper’s face off. Andre cackles & rubs his hands eagerly, as the camera pans out to the crashing waves below.] Kerry Von Erich defeated Nate Sellers. The crowd is ON FIRE the moment Kerry entered the arena!

Says he hears The Hammer ain’t so happy about makin’ a guarantee to beat him in 2 mins or less, only to GET BEAT in 2 mins or less. Says he knows The Fantastics hearts are just bleeding. Fulton boisterously says it’s almost more fun to bruise Valentine’s ego than his body - ALMOST. Rogers says the Heenan Family is riding high, but they know how to bring the Heenan Family down to its knees & they’re fixin’ to do it again tonight in Pittsburgh. All 3 men hoop it up & Sting ‘mouth-cup hollers’ as Gene laughingly closes things out, as “Relax” by Frankie Goes to Hollywood is the audio outro.] MAIN EVENT: Killer Bees/Putski/Arcidi vs. Samu/Fatu/Tama/Sika (w/Mr. Fuji) Fuji & his Samoan savage army hit the ring first to huge heat & intimidation from the crowd.

Crowd coming unglued! Fan favorites clean house finally & rule the ring, as the Headhunters regroup outside with Fuji as the place is coming unglued!

Toward the end, Brunzell is desperately fighting up thru a trapezius nerve hold by Tama & both men end up bouncing off the ropes with a double-clothesline that flattens each other.

[Paul Heyman at Kerry Von Erich’s estate in Texas: Both men sitting out by Kerry’s pool on a gorgeous sunny day. Heyman thanks Kerry for inviting him out & Kerry welcomes him, saying they’ll do some riding in a little bit. Heyman says a kid from NY might not do so well, but he’s game. Paul asks Kerry to reflect on the whirlwind of the last 6 months. Kerry said it was the best of times & the worst of times - highest highs & lowest lows. Says Bob Backlund had tons to do with the lows, his brother & millions of fans continue to be the highs. Heyman asks him about the feud with Backlund. Kerry does a Backlund impersonation that’s almost dead-on. Says Backlund has had some lows also - couldn’t deal with losing the World Title @ Mania, his ego couldn’t stand getting KO’d on TV by him & went more nuts than he was, already. Says he latched onto Kerry with this ‘Kerrith’ business & needed to make his life a living Hell to try to make himself feel better about being certifiably crazy & getting exposed. Says he & Kev had some dark moments after feeling they let the fans down @ Fall Classic, when Backlund cost them the Tag belts. And he vowed, somehow, some way, Backlund was gonna pay for his crimes. At Survivor Series, finally, FINALLY, he did just that. Heyman asks what’s on the horizon for Kerry now. Kerry ponders, grins, and says “Paul, I’ll just say this. It’s gonna be a wild ride. And in the end, it’ll be as good… as gold”. Heyman thanks him, they shake hands & Kerry says "Let's grab some lunch & go for a ride on the range." They gladly walk off & WE fade to black.] Commercial [WWF Event Center for the greater Washington, DC area: “Harvest for the World” by The Isley Bros. is the audio intro. Mean Gene re-hypes tonight, 4/3, as the big return to the Capital Centre in Landover, MD. He runs down the big card. Paul Orndorff comes into frame, happily greeting Gene. Says tonight, DC is gonna experience its 1st earthquake because Mr. Wonderful is gonna topple a skyscraper right in the heart of town. Says Studd is a whole lotta man with next to 0 spine, serving as Roddy Piper’s bouncer. Says tonight isn’t the night Studd finds a brain or a heart, but he will get sent to Oz for a nice, long stay - courtesy of Mr. Wonderful. Poses as Gene happily wraps up, with “Jump” by Van Halen as the audio outro.] MAIN EVENT: ‘Magnificent’ Muraco vs. Sam Houston Muraco came out to building-shaking heat. Houston came down, full of focus & calm determination, to a thundering underdog ovation. This was a barn-burner of a match right off the bat -- fiery punches & dropkicks from Houston, and powerhouse offense from Muraco. Muraco, when he’s in control, has an easy time tossing Houston around like an action figure & seems to enjoy himself. Houston fought with piss & vinegar, particularly against a man like Muraco who’s done what he’s done of late. This is a real knockdown-dragout affair, with tons of near-falls & crescendoing crowd throughout. Muraco has the upstart Houston grounded in a trapezius nerve hold. The crowd is rumbling like mad to give Houston the inspiration to mount a comeback. Houston finally inhales enough crowd energy & battles his way up in the hold & elbows his way out. Houston’s a house of fire now, bouncing off the ropes & leveling Muraco with flying forearms & driving dropkicks! Muraco’s reeling big-time! Houston monkey-flips him out of the corner, levels him with a reverse-elbow from the top! Houston’s twirls a finger in the air, like “Let’s go for a ride now!” The end may be near! Houston hooks Muraco’s head & goes for the Bulldog… but Muraco pushes him off, knocking the ref a mile back into the corner like he was in a car crash!! Muraco then PLANTS Houston with a spinebuster. Muraco rares the thumb for the Asiatic Spike finisher, as Houston staggers up. Muraco lunges for it &... but Houston leg-trips Muraco face-first to the canvas out of nowhere! Muraco’s staggers up, dazed… Houston springs up & tries another running-Bulldog!!… but Muraco pushes out & the momentum enables Houston to running-leap to the middle turnbuckle & springboard backward for a cross-body… but Muraco ducks & Houston lands flush on his sternum!! Muraco snatches him up & FLATTENS him with the Asiatic Spike! Hooks the leg, as the groggy ref crawls over… 1… 2… 3! Muraco stands, battered & smugly satisfied, as the boos rain down from the heavens! The kid Houston gave it his all, but beating the obnoxious Hawaiian rock was not in the cards on this day! Muraco drops to his knees & rolls out, headed up the aisle with his arms raised in victory. Winner: ‘Magnificent’ Don Muraco via Pinfall @ 7:45 Commercial [Gorilla & Jesse are standing at the broadcast platform, still on-edge about all the chaos from this week. Action for next week’s show: Kerry Von Erich, Dino Bravo, British Bulldogs in tag team action, Rick Martel. Main Event: Samu/Fatu/Tama/Sika vs. Killer Bees/Putski/Arcidi! Gorilla & Jesse are hyped for next week & bid us farewell.]

    To call this big night a success would be the understatement of the year! Dream Machine is the shot heard round the world before a single blow has been thrown, babay! Fabulous Ones get the big duke in the opener and off we go. BJH wins the big Loser Leaves Town match in controversial fashion. I can see Strong's legs swinging during that finishing move. Nice win for Casey after that 3rd bulldog... My jaw is still hanging from the Bruise Brothers- Priceless finish. Did not see it coming. Damn man... Colon and Kamala was a walk through Hell and back. Colon actually outlasted the Uganda Headhunter. Jarring visuals, especially at the end. Kamala will still be seen as a monster, coming out of this. The visual of Haystacks taking that awkward, nasty tumble has me like "Yikes", especially for a guy his size. Cool visual. Cabin Fever win the gold, literally, out of nowhere! Nice moment. Dream Machine is money right off the bat. Big unveil, big, controversial win in what can only be described as an utterly chaotic War Games-like melee. Rheingans and Da Crusher get the duke. Interesting stuff there with Verne & Greg in the post-match. I sense this is only the beginning. Man... methinks that referee is gonna have some 'splaining to do when Wahoo is back on his feet. This, I would think, paves the way for this issue to continue with Bockwinkle, but who knows. Wahoo will always be able to say he didn't submit. Nice win for the Golden Boys. Thinking the Highwaymen didn't draw it up this way. Whoa, Rocky drops the Title. Can't say I saw that coming, but would like to think there's another stop or 2 on this road with these 2. What a battle with King & Dundee, with an appropriate end that you can just see it in your mind's eye. Wow... did NOT see the Fabulous Ones pulling something like that on Rock N' Roll. But boy, is this gonna be the mother of all tag team feuds. Can only imagine how long Gibson could be out, after this. Champs remain the Champs in the process. Man, things are heating up in that tag division. Main Event time. And MY, did it deliver! Seeing The Dragon as the top guy during his physical peak is all the feels for me. And boy, did this ever not disappoint. Great build, great payoff, with the Champ standing tall in the end. This is what makes a main event title defense by a top babyface great. Awesome job here. And what a way to close the show! Tons to be done coming out of all this. GET TO WORK! Really, awesome show that lived up to the hype, and then some. I'm still all in!
