    AWA Pacific Wrestling

    Pacific Wrestling Showcase from the Olympic Auditorium , Los Angeles , on ESPN / TSN , March 22nd Texas Red vs. Ricky Gibson While Texas Red made a big splash in his first AWA Pacific appearance, of late it has seemed that Ricky Gibson. Try though he might, Red has fallen short in several matches against the much smaller Gibson. Determined to get revenge, Red has demanded a rematch, and was clearly boiling mad as he went after Gibson. Gibson kept his cool and used hit and run tactics on Red, scoring damage while keeping the big Texan too angry to think. It looked to be the same old story as Gibson went up top to take Red out with the missile dropkick, but it turned out that the Texan was playing possum and dodged out of the way , sending Gibson crashing to the mat. Red grabbed Gibson by his hair, forcing him to his feet, then jackhammered his fist hard into the centre to his chest. Gibson collapsed to the mat, and Red contemptuously put his foot on Gibson to get the one two three while the fans' mouths hung open in shock. For a moment, it looked as though Red would go back to Gibson to try to inflict more damage, but his mentor, The Spoiler, pulled him away. Gibson's brother, Robert, rushed out to the ring with his partner Ricky Morton to try to help him from the ring, but Gibson had to be taken out on a stretcher, having still failed to regain consciousness. Texas Red has been intimidating before, but now has taken an even more terrifying dimension. CanCon vs. The Zambuie Express After some recent tough losses to the Rock & Roll Express, the Zambuies came out clearly looking to show that they were not to be overlooked. They unleashed an all out attack on Burke and Garvin, notably inflicting a lot of damage to Burke's ribs. Burke and Garvin are two of the toughest men in AWA Pacific and would not be kept down for long, battling back hard. All four men wound up being busted open before Garvin was finally able to hit Kareem Muhammed with the Hands Of Stone Punch to send him down for the three count. A hard fought victory, but Burke was clearly in a lot of pain as he left the ring. Nord The Barbarian vs. Ryan Aiken KY Wakamatsu's huge enforcer has been waging his own campaign of terror through AWA Pacific ever since he arrived. Aiken was clearly terrified of locking up with him, and the enormous Barbarian knocked him from pillar to post before tossing him from the ring. That wasn't enough for Nord, who ran back and forth between the ropes before leaping from the ring and landing on Aiken with a crushing double knee drop. Needless to say, Aiken was not able to make it back into the ring, and Nord won by countout. If Super Strong Machine wasn't concerned about his upcoming match with Nord at the Aloha Spectacular in Hawaii, he certainly should be now. Interview : Frank Bonnema stands in the ring Bonnema : Ladies and gentlemen, my guest will be challenging Buddy Rose for the AWA Pacific Heavyweight Title at the upcoming Aloha Spectacular in Honolulu, Hawaii … "Rowdy" Roddy Piper! The Auditorium fills with the sounds of audience cheers and bagpipes playing "Scotland The Brave" as Piper heads out to the ring. Bonnema : Roddy Piper, you are on quite a roll recently. You send Al Madril packing from AWA Pacific, and now you are getting a title match with Buddy Rose in Honolulu. Piper : You're not wrong, Frankie Boy. But it's not all sunshine and roses for the Hot Scot. True, it was a pleasure and a privilege to run Chiquita Madril out of town. But getting that title match did come at a cost. I had to agree to it being a No Countout, No DQ match. Bonnema : Whoah, are you sure that is a wise decision? That leaves you open to be attacked by Rip Oliver and who knows who else. Piper : Very true, Franco. That's why I put in my own condition. Not only is Rip Oliver banned from ringside during the match, but so are all of the Four Families. That means the Diamond & Gold Exchange, the California Connection, even Larry and his buddies. If anyone of them shows up during the match, they get fined and suspended. That means it is just you and me, Jellyroll. When I come home from Hawaii, I am bringing back that title belt! Big Jim vs. Larry Zbyszko Larry Z has been having a lot of bad luck lately with, well, everyone. He has failed in his attempts to get back the gold ring from Roddy Piper, he is treated as a joke by the other of the Four Families, his partners the LA Express have distanced themselves from him, and lately has suffered losses to "Boogie Woogie Man" Jimmy Valiant. Likely looking for some revenge, Larry took on Valiant's young protégé, Big Jim. Naturally, Larry took offense at pretty much everything Big Jim, from his dancing with the fans to his offer of a handshake. It took a long time for Larry to lock up with Jim, and throughout the match, Larry did everything to avoid fighting fair, sneaking in every cheap shot and dirty tactic he could think of. Ultimately , Larry got Jim trapped in the corner, pinning him with a rollup assisted by a fistful of Jim's overalls and putting his feet on the ropes to get the one two three … only he didn't, as Jim got his shoulder up at the last second. Larry celebrated his seeming victory, only to be informed that the match was still going, then walked straight into a Big Boot from Jim. Jim got the pinfall and celebrated with the fans, while Larry threw his usual tantrum. Looks like Larry's luck continues to be out for him. Chris Adams vs. Rip Oliver Not only has Roddy Piper been hot on the heels of Buddy Rose, but Piper's good friend Chris Adams has been chasing the champion as well. For this match, Rose sent out his right hand man, "Crippler" Rip Oliver , to head Adams off at the past. Showing the veracity of his "Crippler" nickname, Oliver relentlessly went after Adams' legs, mangling them with cheap shots and leglocks and diminishing the power of the Superkick. Rose was at ringside for this match, once again observing but not interfering. Adams was not able to land the Superkick but still was able to prevail by hitting a very quick lariat for the pinfall. In contrast to his indifference at Al Madril's earlier loss, Rose nodded in approval at Oliver's efforts in spite of the loss, and helped his cohort out of the ring.

    AWA Pacific Wrestling

    Pacific Wrestling Showcase from the Cow Palace , San Francisco , on ESPN / TSN, March 16th Dick Slater vs. Robb Zbacnik The previous week, Slater made his shocking debut in AWA Pacific by attacking Billy Jack Haynes and taking him out with a vicious piledriver on the concrete. Slater has clearly not lost any intensity in the days since as he tore apart Zbacnik with every nasty move in his arsenal before putting him away with not one but two piledrivers. The always unpredictable Slater is going to be an incredibly volatile ingredient in the AWA Pacific roster. Texas Red & The Spoiler vs. Ricky Gibson & Baron Von Raschke Texas Red has had a very difficult time of late with Ricky Gibson, losing matches by DQ and countout to his much smaller opponent. He wasn't going to leave any room for error this time out , bringing in his mentor the Spoiler for a tag match. Gibson partnered with Baron Von Raschke, but Red and Spoiler were determined not to let the Baron be a factor, keeping Gibson in their corner and working him over for much of the match. Any attempt by the Baron to join the fray would be shut down by the ref, leading to Red and Spoiler working over Gibson even more. Their double teams would lead to their downfall when Spoiler was holding Gibson in place for a big lariat by Red, only for Gibson to wriggle out of the way and hit Spoiler instead. Gibson rolled up Red, and Spoiler tried to break it up, only to run right into the Baron's Iron Claw. One … two … THREE! Gibson scored a huge pinfall win over Texas Red! Red and Spoiler were furious, but the pinfall was good and Gibson and Baron celebrated their victory at ringside. Mad Dog Vachon vs. "Diamond" Timothy Flowers The Mad Dog has been on a serious tear of late, scoring victories over Eric Embry as well as Flowers' teammate Goldie Rogers. He showed no signs of letting up as he took on the self proclaimed "King Of Canada" . Flowers clearly had no idea what to do with the Canadian legend, as no matter what he did to Vachon, the Mad Dog just kept charging back with both fists swinging. He finally went to his last resort, calling in Goldie Rogers to attack Vachon and bust him open, but this only seemed to make the Mad Dog angry, and the Diamond & Gold Exchange fled in terror. Flowers and Rogers look like they had best be on their guard if they cross paths with the Mad Dog in the future. AWA Pacific Tag Team Title Match : The California Cowboys © vs. The Glamour Boys The young Glamour Boys have been presenting a very determined challenge for the Tag Titles of late, and the Cowboys been equally determined to keep their grip on the belts. For this match, however, it seems that the Cowboys are set to put a stop to this challenge once and for all. The Glamour Boys owned the first part of the match with their energetic, high speed offense. Like the last time they faced off, the Cowboys changed the direction of the match with a shot from Brooks' loaded elbow pad to Steve Doll. This time, though, the Cowboys didn't stop there, but rather the start of a vicious beatdown on the Glamour Boys. Orton and Brooks savagely pummeled Doll, busting him open, while knocking Simpson to the floor every time he tried to break it up. They finally polished off Doll with a crushing Spike Piledriver and stood over his body with the belts held high. What will it take to get the titles off the California Cowboys? Loser Leaves Town Match : Roddy Piper vs. Al Madril Piper has his guns trained on AWA Pacific Heavyweight Champion Buddy Rose, but Rose's ally Al Madril has just kept getting in the way. The result is that Rose threw Madril into a Loser Leaves Town challenge from Piper, much to the chagrin of Madril. While Rose was at ringside for this match, he didn't seem too interested in interfering, simple observing with a very intense look. Madril, on the other hand, was clearly panicking throughout the match, stalling and backing off from Piper every chance he got. Nothing he did could hold back Piper for long, and Piper finally got frustrated enough that he finally trapped Madril and hit a pair of belly to back suplexes for the one two three. Rose , for his part, simply shrugged and walked away from the ring as Madril was sent out of AWA Pacific. An unusually nonchalant response to losing one of his closest allies, but knowing Rose, he likely has some more devious trick up his sleeve.

    AWA Pacific Wrestling show from the Portland Memorial Coliseum , Portland , March 10th Keiichi Yamada vs. Mr. Hito Yamada won with a running cross body press The Rock & Roll Express vs. The East-West Connection In something of an upset, Morton dropkicked Ventura into a rollup by Gibson to get the victory for the Rock & Roll Express King Kong Bundy vs. Baron Von Raschke Bundy crushed the Baron with the Atlantic City Avalanche Jacques Rougeau & Phil LaFleur vs. LA Express Embry failed to notice Rougeau had blind tagged in LaFleur , and Rougeau schoolboy tripped Embry into a reverse flying cross body by LaFleur that gave the win to the youngster Billy Jack Haynes, Matt Borne & Blackjack Mulligan vs. Tony Anthony , Texas Red & The Spoiler While Borne was slugging it out with Texas Red in the ring and Blackjack and Anthony were brawling at ringside , someone charged out of the audience and yanked Billy Jack off the ring apron and attacked him before giving him a piledriver on the concrete! It was Dick Slater! As Billy Jack lay unconscious and bleeding on the floor, Slater disappeared into the crowd. Borne tried to tag out, but found his corner empty, and he ended up getting double teamed by Texas Red and the Spoiler before Red finally put him away with a flying elbow drop. AWA Pacific TV Title Match : Leo Burke © vs. Larry Zbyszko Larry tried to cut every corner and cheat every way he could to get the title from Burke but still wound up being pinned after a belly to back suplex AWA Pacific Heavyweight Title Match : Buddy Rose © vs. Roddy Piper When Piper tried to vertical suplex Rose back into the ring, he was tripped from the outside by Al Madril, who held his leg down while Rose pinned him. After the match, Piper challenged Madril to a loser leaves town match, which Rose accepted on Madril's behalf (in spite of Madril's seeming reluctance).

    AWA Pacific Wrestling

    Pacific Wrestling Showcase from the Portland Sports Arena, Portland , on ESPN / TSN , March 9th Texas Red vs. Ricky Gibson Gibson had made his Pacific debut last week at an arena show in Victoria, where he scored and upset win by DQ over Texas Red. This week would mark Gibson's first appearance on the Showcase and facing Texas Red once again, and Red was clearly out for revenge. The experienced Gibson took advantage of that, letting Red's anger goad him into recklessness, leading Gibson to be able to dodge out of the way of many high impact blows. Red's mentor, the Spoiler, tried to interfere and tip the balance in favor of Red, but this would backfire when Gibson hit a top rope dropkick on Red, sending him flying out of the ring and on top of the Spoiler. The two became so entangled that Red was unable to make it back into the ring in time, and Gibson was able to score another victory, this time by countout. Red and Spoiler were livid, and Gibson wisely dashed back to the locker room to celebrate his win. Super Strong Machine vs. Gama Singh Super Strong Machine has quickly emerged as a thorn in the side of KY Wakamatsu and his men, acting as leader to the Japanese favorites Cobra and Keiichi Yamada and rallying the fans to their side. Wakamatsu sent in the Great Gama to take down the Machine, and what resulted was a hard hitting match, with Singh's brutal takedowns and submission holds pitted against Machine's bone jarring suplexes. Machine was finally able to hit the Devil Windmill Suplex on Singh to get the three count, but you could tell that Wakamatsu was still plotting some way to take him out for good. Phil LaFleur vs. Ron Starr Young LaFleur has truly started to blossom (no pun intended) under the tutelage of Jacques Rougeau. In this match, he had to deal with the notorious "Rotten" Ron Starr. One never knows which Ron Starr will show up, the technically gifted light heavyweight or the cheating brawler. Starr kept it technical for most of the match, leading to a hot, fast paced bout with LaFleur getting several near falls and keeping Starr on the defensive for much of the match. The dirty side of Starr showed up when the ref was momentarily looking the wrong way and Starr caught LaFleur with a nasty low blow knee strike. Starr swiftly followed up with a small package to get the pinfall. A cheap win, but further proof that Starr is at his most dangerous when you aren't paying attention. Bob Orton vs. Steve Doll The new team of the Glamour Boys have been making a concerted effort to wrest the tag team titles away from the California Cowboys. For this match, one member of each team would face off in singles competition. Doll was giving up a few inches in height to the Cowboy but, perhaps getting inspiration from Ricky Gibson earlier in the show, used hit and run tactics on Orton to keep him off balance. The wily Orton wasn't at a disadvantage for long, but whatever he did to Doll, the younger wrestler kept coming back fighting. The tide turned for good when Orton ducked under a flying forearm from Doll, then nailed him with a huge lariat. He then put him on the top turnbuckle and brought him down with a Superplex to finish him off. A tough loss for Doll but it still showed that he could hang with one of the champs. Matt Borne vs. Tony Anthony A highly chaotic match with both men tearing into each other from the get go. Things got even crazier when their respective allies (Billy Jack Haynes and Blackjack Mulligan on Borne's side, The Spoiler and Texas Red on Anthony's) showed up at ringside and started brawling with each other. While this madness was going on, Anthony was able to catch Borne in the Bucksnort Blaster to get the pinfall. After the match, it was announced that both sides would meet in a 6 man tag match the next night at the Portland Memorial Coliseum. Buddy Rose & Al Madril vs. Roddy Piper & Chris Adams Buddy Rose may still be AWA Pacific Heavyweight Champion, but he has both Roddy Piper and Chris Adams very close on his heels. Both went after him during this match, but Rose seemed intent on letting his ally Al Madril soak up most of the punishment, only tagging in when his team had the advantage . He thought he was set to get rid of Piper when he was about to whip him into Madril who was standing on the apron, but Piper was only playing possum and reversed it at the last second, sending Rose crashing into Madril. As Madril tumbled to the floor, Piper rolled up the startled Rose for the one two three. This has got to put Piper in line for a title match for sure.

    AWA Pacific Wrestling

    AWA Pacific Wrestling show from the Victoria Memorial Arena, Victoria , March 3rd Texas Red vs. Ricky Gibson Ricky Gibson made his debut in AWA Pacific and gave Texas Red a heck of a fight, pulling off something of an upset when he won by DQ after he went to the top rope for a missile drop kick, only to be knocked off by The Spoiler. Both Spoiler and Red attacked Gibson after the match but he was able to grab a chair from the outside and run them off. Keiichi Yamada vs. Mr. Hito Yamada won with a top rope flying back body press Nord The Barbarian vs. Big Jim KY Wakamatsu hit Jim with his megaphone when the ref had his back turned, enabling Nord to hit a Big Boot on Jim and get the tainted pin. Tony Anthony vs. Billy Jack Haynes Billy Jack forced Anthony to give up to the Full Nelson Rock & Roll Express vs. The Zambuie Express The Rock & Rolls were just barely able to get a pinfall on Elijah Akeem after a double dropkick, but the Zambuies kept fighting with them well after the final count. CanCon & Mad Dog Vachon vs. The Diamond & Gold Exchange & King Kong Bundy In a vicious match where Vachon and Bundy kept going after each other and busted each other open, Ron Garvin was able to catch "Diamond" Timothy Flowers in a sunset flip for the three count AWA Pacific Heavyweight Title Match : Buddy Rose © vs. Chris Adams Adams won by countout after he superkicked Rogers out of the ring and the Playboy was not able to make it back in.

    AWA Pacific Wrestling

    Pacific Wrestling Showcase from the Pacific Coliseum, Vancouver, on ESPN / TSN , March 2nd The Spoiler & Texas Red vs. John Raymond & Jed Hildebrand With Stan Hansen first suspended and now gone from AWA Pacific, it looks like Tony Anthony has brought The Spoiler into the fold to mentor his young, red-headed charge. Texas Red seemed to be paying close attention to the masked man throughout the match and followed his directions exactly when tagging in and out of the ring. He seemed particularly attentive when Spoiler walked the ropes before dropping an intense forearm blow to the back of Raymond's neck. This led to a very surprising moment when the huge Texan tried it himself and got a gasp from the crowd as he walked the top rope before driving Hildebrand down to the mat. In spite of his ornery disposition, Texas Red was able to garner some applause from the fans for this impressive athletic feat. Following orders, he then tagged in the Spoiler, who forced Hildebrand to give up to the Clawhold. Although he has taken some losses, the powerful rookie is showing considerable potential. Mad Dog Vachon vs. Eric Embry Not much has been seen of the French Canadian legend since his losses to Adrian Adonis and King Kong Bundy, but based on the results of this match, he is back with a vengeance. He tore into Embry in a way that the Flamboyant One was clearly not expecting nor prepared for. Embry struggle to worm his way out from the onslaught of the Mad Dog, but Vachon was not to be denied, polishing off Embry with a brutal running elbow smash to the head. After getting the three count, Vachon stood in the ring, as though daring Embry's partner Ron Starr to come after him, but Starr stayed in the locker room. A wise decision, given the Mad Dog's renewed aggression. AWA Pacific Tag Team Title Match : The California Cowboys © vs. The Glamour Boys The new tag team of Steve Doll and Steve Simpson has certainly drawn a lot of female fans, but that doesn't seem to impress the rough and tumble champs Bob Orton and Tim Brooks. That said, the two rookies but in a game effort to try to take the titles. No matter what the Cowboys threw at Doll and Simpson, they just kept coming back for more. It seemed for a moment that the Glamour Boys just might pull it off when Simpson whipped Doll into Brooks for the Flying Forearm Smash, but Brooks ducked at the last moment and then nailed Simpson with the Running Elbow Smash to the face (assisted by his loaded elbow pad). Brooks then got the pinfall, but all the same, the Glamour Boys are proving themselves to be a team not to be taken lightly. Phil LaFleur & Jacques Rougeau vs. Ryan Aiken & Daniel Lue Another youngster who has been turning heads is Phil Lafleur, who looks to get a considerable boost by teaming with Jacques Rougeau of the legendary Rougeau family. This alliance might well be just the catalyst to take LaFleur to the next level as a wrestler, as the pair easily dominated Aiken and Lue and gelled immediately as a team, with smooth tags and effective double teams. The pair pretty much destroyed Lue when Rougeau had Lue in a Boston Crab and LaFleur came off the top rope with a kneedrop to the back. After the match, LaFleur was clearly psyched to have Rougeau as his new partner and Rougeau was proud of his young pupil. The Cobra, Super Strong Machine & Keiichi Yamada vs. Nord The Barbarian, Mr. Hito & Gama Singh This match between the Japanese favorites and Wakamatsu's men was as intense and chaotic as you would expect. Mostly, it was Hito and Gama against Cobra and Yamada. But when Gama tagged in the huge Barbarian, Yamada immediately brought in Super Strong Machine. Although Nord towered over the Machine, Machine was clearly not intimidated . He started lacing into the big man with brutal chops to the chest. Nord fired back with a huge backhand to the chest that would have sent anyone else flying, but Machine stood his ground. Nord tried to take him down with a big clothesline, but Machine ducked it and came back with a shoulder tackle that staggered the Barbarian. Both men kept exchanging huge shots with each other but both kept refusing to go down. In the end, Wakamatsu couldn't take it anymore and threw in his megaphone to Hito, but Hito was cut off by Cobra. This wound up descending into pure chaos with all 6 man brawling in the ring, and the ref had no choice but to declare a no contest. AWA Pacific Television Title Match : Leo Burke © vs. "Diamond" Timothy Flowers A strong rivalry has developed between the Man Of A Thousand Holds and the leader of the Diamond & Gold Exchange. Both men have scored wins over the other, with Flowers defeating Burke to be declared "King Of Canada" by the Four Families, but Burke coming back to beat Flowers to become the first AWA Pacific Television champion. This wound up being Flowers trying as many of his dirty tricks to gain the advantage, with Burke countering with his deep technical expertise and lightning quick fists. Flowers seemed to have Burke set up for the Piledriver, but Burke countered with a small package that got a quick three count to defend his title. Flowers was clearly not satisfied with that result, as he ambushed Burke after the match, and the two continued to slug it out. Burke clearly will have to face the challenge of Flowers again before he is done with him.
