WWF Superstars


Vince McMahon & Jesse the Body Ventura


Matches from Hamburg, PA – The Fieldhouse



Kamala w/ Roddy Piper defeated Brady Boone


-Kamala is out here again and he destroys Brady Boone. Roddy Piper joins commentary and he is running Hogan down. He talks about how Muhammad Ali isn’t going to be a part of this and he will knock him out if he gets in his way. We see the big splash and Kamala has won it!



The Killer Bees defeated Tony Flak & Tony Zane


-A nice showcase for the Bees who are a fun team right now to watch. They have got a lot of speed and charisma but how do they match up against some of the others?



Greg Valentine & The Hart Foundation w/ Jimmy Hart defeated Bob Scott, Rick McGraw, & Ken Raper


-The Hart Foundation is out in force tonight. Vince and Jesse put over the hair cutting that Brutus Beefcake has been doing and Jesse calls him the BARBER! Could be on to something.



The Machines defeated Omar Atlas & Bob Bradley


-A good contest with the Machines as Super and Strong look great here. Heenan is shown here with the Faces of Fear and Bundy. We see the Machines finish off Bradley and prep for the battle but then out of the crowd comes the THIRD MACHINE! OH MY! We have got some six-man action ready to unfold here but Heenan and his boys retreat.



Tony Atlas vs Nikita Koloff w/ Ivan Koloff


-A really fun main event and we get to see Nikita outside of his element a little bit but he has got things going in the right direction and Atlas is able to keep things manageable. Nikita is no selling everything though and when he hits the Russian Sickle, Atlas goes flying outside the ring and here comes Ivan to hammer down on him. This pulls Dino Bravo out of the back and we get a double count out with a 4-man brawl outside the ring! Jesse and Vince put this over in a big way as Nikita is on the rise and there is a tag team in the making here!

Wrestlemania is shaping up nicely. After looking at the line-up, I was trying to pick your winners and who would hold he belts after it but each match could go either way and I think that is the beauty of your roster.

Always intriguing to see Hogan & Bravo teaming up together, considering what Bravo always wanted to do in real-life.

Dino Bravo wanted to have a huge match at the Olympic Stadium between him and Hogan for the WWF Championship in 1989. He was convinced they could've drawn more than 50 000 people. However, I think that Vince was worried about the crowd reaction against Hogan for that particular scenario (given that Bravo was always widely cheered despite being a heel in Montreal) and he wasn't convinced himself that this would draw particularly well. Instead, they opted for Bravo injuring Hogan in a 6-men tag at the Forum in 89. That was Hogan's last appearance in Montreal until Jacques Rougeau's WCW retirement match in 1997.

Nice little history lesson here! Also, the WWF continues to run on all cylinders. Maybe because I always hated Hogan in the WWF, I think I am on Edger's side and like your B roster better.

I really do see a lot of 1985 WWF here. It's so much fun reading these and thinking of how fun it would have been being a kid watching these.

 

Wrestlemania will be such a great event. Im looking forward to it.

WWF Wrestling Challenge


Gorilla Monsoon & Bobby The Brain Heenan in studio


Matches from Brantford, Ontario, Canada – The Civic Centre



Harley Race w/ Bobby Heenan defeated Johnny Rivera


Andre the Giant: How can you call yourself a King when you haven’t beaten the Giant? Harley Race… I will take that crown from you and put it on my head where it belongs!



David Sammartino defeated James Wright


Larry Z: In all my years of wrestling, never before has a man with so little had such significance and that is saying a lot because I think very low of you David and I think even less of your father. At WrestleMania, the world is going to see me wipe the mat with you and if Bruno wants… I may just show him a thing or two as well!



The Killer Bees defeated Pat & Mike Kelly


-Good showcase for the Bees who might not make it on the WrestleMania card but it doesn’t mean they don’t have the goods. We see a slick double dropkick to finish off the Kelly boys for the 3 count.



Brutus Beefcake defeated Steve Simpson – he then cut his hair!


Tito Santana: I guess tonight is the night Brutus and just to let you know that I could care less about my hair and more about getting my hands on you! Tonight I am going to do just that and when I do… it is going to be lights out for you! ARIBA!



Scott Casey vs Ron Bass w/ Jack Lanza


-A blahish main event with Bass beating up Casey something good and even Black Bart comes down to help matters out… but then we see Blackjack Mulligan come down to even up the odds and we get a nice little back and forth before they chase off the heels.

It's a nice, realistic touch to have a "blah-ish" main event once in a while. Not every match can be a barn-burner.

Well Scott Casey hasn't really popped on the scene yet so it isn't much but a place holder in a feud that could be going nowhere fast.

 

but I also agree... sometimes these things were snoozers... especially in 1985!

Considering how hugely over Dino Bravo & Andre were in Montreal, it's anything but "blah-ish". Crowd must've gone nuts for this. In an odd way, Hogan probably was the lesser attraction in this main event...unless you were talking about Wrestling Challenge?

Harley Race would of been a fantastic base for Savage in 1985, Savage not at his peak in 1985 in my opinion, (I reckon that to be late 86) but Race would of made him look even more like a million bucks...

lol, yeah: Hulk Hogan, Dino Bravo, & Andre the Giant vs John Studd, King Kong Bundy, & Kamala w/ Bobby Heenan & Roddy Piper could be a lot of things, but "blah-ish" isn't one of them.

 

Nice thing about Scott Casey vs Ron Bass w/ Jack Lanza is, even though LowBlow himself described it as blahish, it still builds toward the WrestleMania card. One of those cases where the post-match is more important than the match itself.

Vince McMahon & Jesse the Body Ventura


Matches from Brantford, Ontario, Canada – The Civic Centre



The Fantastics defeated Omar Atlas& Barry Horowitz


Jimmy Hart: With WrestleMania only one-week away baby I can feel it! I have got the Anvil and the Hitman ready! Bobby Fulton… Tommy Rogers… I don’t think your future is going to look to bright after we deliver you a Hart Attack!



The Machines defeated SD Jones & Tony Zane


Bobby Heenan: Ohhh the big mystery… who are the Machines… well at WrestleMania… I don’t care if there are 2 of you… 3 of your… or even 4 of you! We are going to rip those masks off and show the world you ugly faces and put you out of wrestling for good!



Nikita Koloff w/ Ivan defeated Bob Scott


Tony Atlas: Lemme tell all the pople out there right now that Mr. USA Tony Atlas is joining forces with Mr. Canada, Dino Bravo. We are the World’s Strongest Tag Team and Russians… we coming for ya baby… Nikita Koloff… you big ugly… I am going to show you why I am the strongest man in professional wrestling!



Jake Roberts defeated Rick McGraw


Randy Savage: OHHHH YEAAAHHH… Jake Roberts the time is drawing closer and the Macho Man can feel it from my nose to my toes… brother WrestleMania… the bright lights and the millions of people are going to see the MACHO MAN reign SUPREME DIG IT!



Dynamite Kid w/ Davey Boy vs Gino Hernandez w/ Chris Adams


-A very fun main event with Dynamite and Gino putting on a great 12-minute contest. The crowd is really getting after Gino and Adams who are really working on a grand stage for the first time in their careers but they have got some great heat. In the end, we see Gino attempting to cheat before Davey Boy gets involved leading to Chris Adams nailing a NASTY superkick that knocks Dynamite right out before Gino covers him for the 3 count. Davey chases off the Mexican champs as this one is heating up before WrestleMania!
