Major Incidents:
ONE. Assasination of Jacob Israël de Haan (1924), a Dutch-Jewish diplomat, for attempting to make a peace deal with the Emir of Mecca - his plan was a Palestinian state in a Jordanian federation, the Zionists would drop the Balfour declaration and any claim to a state in exchange for unrestricted immigration. He was assassinated when leaving a synagogue by Avraham Tehomi (who admitted to it much later), on the orders of Yitzhak Ben-Zvi, who later became the 2nd President of Israel:
Wiki, Haaretz, 972mag

[1] Ilan Pappe notes that the villagers had no proper arms, only for hunting purposes and people who served in the police; without Arab troops that were absent they stood no chance [2] In April 1948, the Intelligence of the Hagana defined men as anyone above the age of 10

on the rugged trails of the mighty Himalaya.

The Frozen Road
(2018, 25 min)
Self-shot and edited whilst cycling around the world, this short film charts my winter journey
into the Canadian Arctic as I completed my bike ride up the American continent. Compelled by

perfect solitude. Yet, as I came to realise, the harsh truths of travelling in such a formidable
environment were a long way from the romantic images I’d held of this land. The Frozen Road
is an honest reflection on my solo trip; of the wonder, terror and frustration I experienced when
riding through the unforgiving emptiness of one of the world's 'last great wildernesses'.

  • [NJPW] We start this week with one of the strangest matches in wrestling history, the Antonio Inoki vs. Masa Saito match on the empty island of Ganryujima on October 4. This is New Japan’s take on the Funk/Lawler empty arena match, and legend has it that the island is where samurai warriors would fight to the death. They had a ring set up and two tents for the competitors, and the only other people present were reporters and the camera crew. It was supposed to start at sunrise, and Saito came out twice with Inoki nowhere to be seen. At 4 pm, Saito came out one more time and Inoki jumped out of the jungle to ambush him and start the match. The official report is that Inoki won after 2 hours, 5 minutes, 14 seconds when Kotetsu Yamamoto (who does color commentary for the tv show) stopped the fight when Saito was put out with a sleeper. About 30 minutes of the match aired the next night, and apparently the actual length was something around 45 minutes total and mostly restholds. Photos of the match were all over the newspapers in Japan. What’s curious here is that Inoki and Saito have had three previous matches which drew among the biggest gates in wrestling history (two in the $400,000 range and one near $700,000), but this was purely to get tv ratings and put Inoki above Choshi in the minds of fans. It aired as part of a two-hour special featuring Choshu’s return to tv, and Dave hopes to have details of the show and ratings (very important here, as New Japan’s tv ratings are dangerously low as far as the network is concerned) next week.
  • New Japan isn’t the only company that had a wild brawl this week. Memphis and UWF both put big matches on as well. First, Chris Adams and Sting fought Eddie Gilbert and Terry Taylor in the concession stands in the “Battle of New Orleans.” It’s the best thing Dave’s seen on tv in months and the kind of thing people will remember for years. Memphis offered Jerry Lawler and Bill Dundee vs. Carl Fergie and Don Bass with Brickhouse Brown. This one was mostly backstage for tv purposes, though that meant the lighting was bad and it didn’t come off as well as it could have. They still brawled for nearly twenty minutes, starting on the stage and heading back to the dressing room, and all five guys were covered in ice, beer, mustard, and blood by the end, with Lawler giving Fergie a swirly as the climax. Both brawls are must see.
Watch: from the Battle of New Orleans
  • WWF has announced the line-up for their November 11 Saturday Night’s Main Event taping. Hogan will face Bundy, with Andre in Bundy’s corner. Randy Savage will face Bret Hart in what should be an excellent match, given the network factor. Bam Bam vs. Hercules, Hillbilly Jim vs. Ted DiBiase, Duggan vs. Race, and Steele vs. Danny Davis (this last Dave hopes does not get taped). The show will proobably air on November 21 to help promote Survivor Series.
  • JCP has pulled a big surprise out of their hat by booking the Nassau Coliseum for a show the day before Thanksgiving. After getting tv in the area, it’s only been a matter of time before Crockett started putting shows on in the area, but most expected the first such show to happen in early 1988. There’s little doubt they’ll do big business for their first show there, but long-term success is more questionable. To help push the show over the top, they’re doing WarGames IV with Garvin/Windham/Rock’n’Roll Express vs. Arn/Tully/Bubba/Midnight Express. They’ll also have FlaiLuger vs. Road Warriors, Nikita Koloff vs. Eddie Gilbert in a Texas Death match, Steve Williams defending the UWF Title against Rick Steiner, and more.
  • In terms of Starrcade, JCP has announced one match officially on tv this weekend for the show: Steve Williams vs. Barry Windham for the UWF Title. They also announced that Starrcade will be available in “more than 100” closed-circuit locations. The announcement said the show would be Thanksgiving night, but mentioned no start time. Dave repeats what you’ve already read over the past few issues about the start time stuff and how that’s to make sure there’s no overlap, and how WWF has basically knocked Starrcade off the majority of potential ppv homes. With several companies offering Starrcade on ppv, though, it’s too late to change the time back to the evening. By the time the issue reaches readers, two more matches will have been announced: Flair challenging Garvin for the NWA World Title in a no dq cage match and Koloff vs. Taylor to unify the UWF and NWA TV Titles. TV seems to be building toward Dusty vs. Lex and Tully/Arn vs. Road Warriors, with the latter probably for the NWA Tag Titles. On the plus side, the Chicago card being aired via satellite will limit it to three hours, so that card will only have 7 matches which should let them develop for longer, rather than having 12 matches with most being limited in length. JCP will also run events in Greensboro and New Orleans for NWA and UWF, respectively, with each of those events having four or five matches and live broadcast of Starrcade from Chicago.
  • JCP and WWF will also be changing up their schedules in the coming months. WWF will drop one city per night on weeknights, so Dave believes they’ll be doing two shows a night Monday-Thursday, making up for it with double shots on Saturday and Sunday for three crews each working two shows a day on the weekend. JCP also looks like they’ll be dropping down to two shows a night rather than three which has been their norm lately. Theoretically fewer shows should let the wrestlers rest more and lead to stronger line-ups. It also means the guys lower on the card will get fewer dates and make less money. If the smaller promotions were in the position to offer good money to those guys, they could alleviate some of their talent woes, but that’s not likely to happen. AWA/WCCW/Memphis may get some workers, though, and they need them. The cutback on live shows also reveals something that’s been obvious to readers lately - the live side of the business in this country is at its worst level in years. This was inevitable for the smaller promotions due to the unwinnable battle they have against the JCP/WWF juggernauts. But, WWF has also been having unimpressive attendance (in all but a few hot towns - New York, Boston, Toronto, a couple others), particularly where Hogan is absent. JCP doesn’t have a Hogan (Flair and Road Warriors are their closest), so this change had better help rekindle fan interest.
  • With Starrcade certainly to be less of a big deal than JCP were initially projecting, it looks like they’ll be getting their second chance on January 24. There won’t be any ppv competition from WWF, as they’ll be in full Wrestlemania hype mode, so JCP ought to be available in several million potential homes and could potentially make a lot of money. They’ll be running out of Vegas or Nassau Coliseum. If the latter, expect the war between WWF and JCP to intensify.
  • The Crockett family sold their minor league baseball team, the Charlotte Orioles, this past week. Dave was told around a year ago they were looking to get out of baseball and focus only on wrestling, so this shouldn’t be taken as a sign of trouble for the promotion. Some trivia about the team: Francis Crockett, sister of Jim Jr. and David, was the general manager of the team and named Minor League Executive of the Year at one point by The Sporting News. Tony Schiavone also started out as the play-by-play guy for the team’s games before getting brought over to wrestling.
  • [All Japan] Bruiser Brody’s first match back was against Tiger Mask II on the October 6 show at Budokan Hall. He destroyed Tiger Mask, then interfered in the main event between Jumbo Tsruruta and Tenryu, attacking both men. Tsuruta got hit first, so he won by disqualification. Both men seem to smell money in a Brody feud, so they both want first crack. No confirmation on Brody’s status has been forthcoming, but given he’s in this position, it seems likely he will be back, probably in the tag tournament in December.
  • Owen Hart returned to Stampede on October 2, coming to the rescue of Johnny Smith. Due to the Canadian postal workers strike, reports from Stampede may be sketchy for the next few weeks.
  • Official word on the relationship between Memphis and the AWA is still nowhere to be found. The rumors have been swirling, though, so I’d expect something soon.
  • [Memphis] Rocky Johnson is being played down on cards, but still allowed to work while the case against him gets sorted out. Johnson was accused of rape last week, but the woman leveling the accusation has changed her story three times since then so it’s likely he’ll come out in the clear, legally. They had been building a feud between him and their Bubba when Bubba hit Johnson over the head with his ghetto blaster (a la Buck Zumhofe) and broke the radio.
  • Bob Geigel has officially pulled Central States out of the NWA and is dropping all NWA naming, forming his own national alliance called the World Wrestling Alliance. The WWA will crown a world champion in January. With such illustrious contenders as Rufus Jones, Rip Rogers, Bob Geigel, Earthquake Ferris, and Porkchop Cash, this will surely be the premier championship recognized the world over. Supposedly Memphis, Deep South (Georgia), and Continental (Alabama) will be part of the WWA, but with Memphis seeming to be solidly in bed with AWA, don’t count on that to be accurate.
  • AWA is going to crown a TV champion with a very convoluted tournament. There’s a whole points system: if you win a match you get 5 points. If you lose, you lose 5 points. If you win by DQ or countout, you get 2.5 points. If you lose by DQ or countout, you lose 2.5 points. First wrestler to 50 points wins the title.
  • AWA are also planning a tournament for the women’s title on November 28 in Las Vegas. There’s talk that they might give the title to Wendi Richter if they can get her in, but Madusa is the safe bet.
  • [WCCW] In pushing the October 17 Cotton Bowl show, Fritz Von Erich did an interview with Kevin, Kerry, and his granddaughter (I give you the official WON debut of Lacey Von Erich). Fritz said that his family has been up (clips of Kerry beating Flair in Texas Stadium) and down, and basically admitted the promotion has been in a slump. He promised to bring back the good old days and said the family would get back up again. Dave says the good old days won’t come back unless Fritz opens his wallet to pay for talent. I’d just like to point out the ego it takes to conflate the promotion with his family and try to make this about himself.
  • The Crocketts will be changing the UWF taping format again either this coming weekend or the next. Everyone agreed that the new format sucked, so they’re trying to fix things up and make it a bit more like a WWF taping where it won’t just be matches for the show, but additional matches for other programs. All the top names from both NWA and UWF will be present, just like how WWF does it.
  • Last week Dave reported WWF was leaving Denver, and he reported an attendance at their last show there of 1,200. In a correction, Dave tells us the number was closer to 1,500, but the paid attendance was only 700. JCP only drew 600 on October 10, so Denver seems like a disaster for everyone right now.
  • [JCP] Hiro Matsuda showed up at the tv taping on October 6 as the “master of the Japanese sleeper hold." He’s 49, but has great conditioning, and he put referee Tommy Young to sleep in a demonstration, then refused to revive him and put Johnny Weaver to sleep when Weaver tried to wake him. Dusty came out to make the save. Matsuda trained Luger (not something to brag about, but something they can use for the angle). It’d be logical, since Rhodes has put Luger to sleep in the past, for Matsuda to teach Luger the sleeper for Starrcade. That would give both guys a way to get heat in a match that will mostly be rest holds.
Watch: Hiro Matsuda demonstrates the Oriental Sleeper Hold
  • Dave says the Road Warriors are great, but their influence on the business has been bad. They have an excellent gimmick and they play their role well, and as long as you don’t mind no-selling they’re fine in the ring. But looking at guys like Petrov, the Kodiaks, Dingo Warrior, Warlord, Nord the Barbarian, things look dire. They all come in with the idea that you just have to be a musclebound meathead who doesn’t sell and doesn’t know how to work and you’ll get over. On the plus side for the Kodiaks, they’re young and aggressive and maybe they’ll get better by improving.
  • Not a lot of details from the last WWF tv taping, but they did an angle to set up Duggan/Race. Duggan stole the cape and crown from Race, then later Race and Heenan beat Duggan up with the 2x4. Dave hopes they don’t try to put this as the headliner for any towns.
  • WWF is making their drug testing a weekly thing now.
  • At the latest taping were Nick Bockwinkel, Boris Zhukov, Sheik Adnan al-Kaissey, and Princess Jasmine. Bockwinkel is through with the AWA and is in WWF as an agent, while Zhukov is now teaming with Nikolai Volkoff. Sheik Adnan was looking for a job, and Jasmine is probably going to get added to the Survivor Series match fro the women.
  • The Princess’ [sic] Bride (Dave is so much closer to getting the title right this week) opened in theaters to excellent reviews. Andre is getting great reviews for his performance as well, with Joseph Gelmis of Newsday magazine calling him “wonderful, lovable and a natural comedian.”
Watch: The cast and crew of The Princess Bride reminisce about Andre
  • WWF plans to run several shows in Chicago in November to combat Starrcade, all of them with Hogan. The first will be November 1.
  • Ricky Steamboat has been pulled from all his currently announced WWF appearances. No reason known.
  • A letter writer asks why Chavo Guerrero, Sam Houston, and Dingo Warrior never show up on tv. Dave explains they have their “C” team, which is like a farm team or developmental team of guys they want to potentially push in the future but aren’t ready to push yet. Dingo and Houston are on that squad (as was Tom MaGee before he went to Europe to compete in strongman contests), and the idea is that they don’t get tv exposure so when they do get their gimmick and initial push, it’ll be like your first time seeing them. Dave thinks it’s a smart idea, especially with Dingo because if he ever improves enough to be passably bad at wrestling, his physique will carry him quite far into stardom. Houston has lots of talent, but WWF wants him to gain weight so he won’t look scrawny next to all the roid monsters. Dave expects both to get their big break soon. In the case of Chavo, he helps do commentary for their Spanish broadcasts, so it’s not likely he’ll work television, and he’s been on-again-off-again lately.
  • In comments that show how the culture has changed between 1987 and today, we get a letter from a reader who went to the first NWA show in Detroit. “I attended the NWA debut in Detroit and it was incredible. It had six title matches and there were only two matches on the card where you could watch the girls with your binoculars. It was three-and-a-half hours of excellence.” When you see a fly girl at the wrestling show, do the creep.
  • Another letter writer wants coverage of GLOW and complains there’s very little coverage of women’s wrestling. Dave says he actually gives very significant coverage of women’s wrestling, particularly Japanese women’s wrestling (I will note as the Rewinder that this “very significant coverage” is usually a small paragraph labeled “Japanese girls” and doesn’t actually give the name of either of the promotions, and there isn’t always coverage of them in each issue). Dave says if GLOW or POWW can show they can do business at live shows he’ll cover them.
  • Dave continues his award thoughts this week. For Tag Team of the Year, both versions of the Midnight Express (Eaton & Condrey, then Eaton & Lane) stand out above all other American teams. But Dave gives number one to Maeda and Takada. Lots of potential candidates for number three: Martel/Santana have been excellent, but haven’t been together long. The Hart Foundation are the most overrated team in wrestling (Bret’s a tremendous worker, but Jim Neidhart’s only talent is making faces). Tanaka/Diamond and Jarrett/Travis deserve consideration. The Road Warriors are popular and big draws. Dave thinks Rock & Roll Express deserve the number three spot. For Best Television Show, this is for weekly shows, so Saturday Night’s Main Event doesn’t count. WWF Superstars has great production. New Japan’s show has the best matches. Memphis has the best entertainment wrestling can deliver. Power Pro has lots of action, blood, and creativity. Dave gives New Japan, then Memphis, then Superstars the top three. For Worst Wrestler, Dave wants to clarify that rookies are ineligible. Although he looks out of place physically, Giant Baba still does more moves in a match than you’ll see in two WWF shows. Mike Von Erich was also out of place in the ring, but you knew he was trying hard. Dave figures Bob Geigel (age 63 and working full time), Dingo Warrior, Warlord, and Ivan Putski are good candidates and while Warlord and Dingo have only been around two years, Putski has been around two decades so “you’d think through osmosis something would penetrate his thick skull” (Rewinder note: ouch. Putski was my dad’s favorite growing up in the 60s and 70s). JYD, George Steele, and Outback Jack are also candidates. Dave really wants to pick JYD and hates not doing it, but he picks Putski.
  • Dave got a bunch of promotional material about Big John Studd and most of it is laughably false. There’s a claim that over 1 million John Studd action figures were sold in 1986. Only 3 million WWF action figures were sold in 1986, and half of them were Hogan. Studd’s Q rating (consumer popularity) is apparently a 47, higher than many other celebrities, such as Mr. T (a 17). Mr. T is among the most hated celebrities in the country, so this is meaningless. Studd has supposedly wrestled in front of over 70 million fans in the past year. Studd’s wrestled in front of the same number of people as Dave has in 1987 - 0. There’s also a claim he’s been on numerous nationally syndicated tv and radio shows. Sure, WWF is nationally syndicated, but that doesn’t really count. When was he on Donahue, Carson, or Oprah? Or radio?
  • Dave got a copy of the report for the Pennsylvania legislature regarding the athletic commission in Eastern Pennsylvania. The report recommends the state pass a wrestling act which would provide the commission no role in regulating wrestling. It would put some statutes into law, though. Every promoter would have to post a $10,000 bond to ensure that “only financially sound, reputable promoters” operate in the state. It would also require a physician present at all shows and an ambulance or paramedical unit present or on call at every match. Promoters would have to provide adequate security for all events, and blading would be banned. State tax on gates would be dropped from 5% to 2%, with the new figure still getting the state more money when figuring in the elimination of the costs the current way of doing things incurs.

  • NWA/UWF are not going to have a lot of news this week due to the “team party” (I’m assuming the booking team/management, basically the slimmed down version of the NWA convention now that Crockett basically is the NWA) in San Martine this week, so the big news all comes from WWF’s tv tapings and some personnel changes, the first of which is that Jim Duggan is back. This was touched on late in last week’s issue, but he was present at the tv tapings on September 15 and 16 in Peoria and Rockford, Illinois. WWF had reportedly told announcers and publicity folks to pretend he was never gone. There was some worry about how fans would react, but the enthusiastic response he got in Houston at the Boesch retirement show seems to have alleviated the worry. Ivan Putski is back as well on a part-time basis.
  • You won’t see Kamala, Jake Roberts, or Corporal Kirchner around WWF in the foreseeable future, though. Kirchner was fired again and Roberts is suspended for 12 weeks. Kamala’s been pulled from all scheduled bookings for unknown reasons. He was supposed to main event the Saturday Night’s Main Event to be taped September 23, against Hulk Hogan. But now that’s been changed and Sika will be taking his spot in the match. Honkeytonk Man vs. Savage for the Intercontinental Title is also scheduled for that show, and Dave expects something big with that.
  • WWF has also announced the main event for Survivor Series and we finally have clarity on what that match type will entail. It’ll be a ten-man elimination tag match with teams currently consisting of Hogan/Ken Patera/Billy Graham/Bam Bam Bigelow/Paul Orndorff and Andre/Rick rude/One Man Gang/Bundy/Butch Reed. The show has also now been announced as an evening show, which means it will be going head to head with Starrcade. Survivor Series will be available for up to five million homes (a three percent buyrate would put them in 150,000 buys for a $2+ million gross). No idea yet how Starrcade will fare, as availability is still a question there and Vince has the jump on Crockett here.
  • Comedian Richard Belzer is suing Hulk Hogan for $5 million. The suit stems from an incident prior to the first Wrestlemania and took place on Belzer’s tv show. Hogan and Mr. T were on the show during the hype week before Wrestlemania, and Belzer asked Hogan to demonstrate a hold on him. Hogan put Belzer in a front facelock and apparently squeezed so hard that Belzer passed out and, upon being released, hit his head on the floor and needed nine stitches in the back of his head.
Watch: The incident that led to the lawsuit
  • Following Chris Adams, Terry Gordy, and Buddy Roberts leaving UWF, here’s some speculation about future moves for Adams and Gordy. Adams left because of money, and apparently neither he nor Crockett really saw eye to eye, sohis leaving isn’t terribly surprising. He’s talked to both WWF and WCCW, though Dave supposes he’ll probably go to WWF if they’ll have him. If they don’t, he’s probably going to go to WCW and mostly make money working independently. Gordy has his Japanese tours to finish out the year. The smart move would be to do them then get knee surgery, which should basically write him a ticket to going wherever he wants doing whatever he wants. Michael Hayes is being brought to the main JCP side of things and will team with Jimmy Garvin. Hayes is better as a heel, but the (probably correct) belief by Crockett suits is that he needs to be a face to sell his album to wrestling fans.
  • WWF’s latest round of tv tapings (September 15-16) has a few things developing. Honkeytonk Man did an interview with Craig DeGeorge listing ten reasons he’s the greatest Intercontinental Champion of all time, only to be interrupted by Savage. They had a good match later that night that’s probably set to air after the Savage face turn. They also taped a debate between Jimmy Hart and Elizabeth where she got off a number of zingers. Rick Rude stole the spotlight from Orndorff’s squash match by posing. Bob Orton and Don Muraco somehow screwed up the finish to their match and had to go out and do it again. The next night, Ted DiBiase offered $300 to a kid if he could do 30 pushups, then Duggan came out and took DiBiase’s money and gave it to the kid, which should make for a promising feud.
  • **[WCCW] Iron Sheik started working here last week. He’s probably going to be billed as Ali Vaziri due to WWF trademark on the name The Iron Sheik.
  • If it weren’t sad, the funniest story of the past week would be Kevin Von Erich’s promo on the September 4 WCCW tv show in Dallas. He spent an entire tag match trying to break Brian Adias’s thumb, then he grabbed the mic and cut a promo saying “I don’t make you fans many promises but when I make a promise, I’ll keep it. I promise you I’m going to run Chris Adams out of Texas and I’m going to break Chris Adams’ thumb.” He was dead serious and not trying for laughs, and he did the same thing not too long ago - he talked about Michael Hayes not long ago when Adias was the opponent he was supposed to talk about. So this is unsurprising and likely a result of everything going wrong in the Von Erich family since forever. The stupidest part is nobody in tv production edited it out. And Dave is irritated about stuff like this from all the promotions - television is your lifeblood as a promotion, so if you have an error or a wrestler gets carried away and says stuff that isn’t in good taste or whatever, just edit it out.
  • Not to pick on Florida when they’re on the verge of folding, but they’re pulling some rookie mistakes here. They’ve advertised a loser leaves town match between Steve Keirn and Mike Graham vs. The Sheepherders. Those in the know already know the result, since the Sheepherders have already arrived in UWF. Nothing wrong with that, thouogh, since their debut won’t be televised until after the 22nd. But, they’re advertising shows for October and featuring Graham and Keirn heavily on those cards, and it’s also for a feud that hasn’t started yet.
  • [Florida] That’s still better than what they did on what they’re billing as the final episode of Championship Wrestling from Florida (in this format, anyway - they put the word “Finis” at the end of the episode). They played a video of Johnny Ace kidnapped by Kevin Sullivan and Bugsy McGraw, who were bullying him and making him wash Sullivan’s hands and read the Three Little Pigs (replacing pigs with sheep). That’s fine on its own, probably, but Ace was busting out laughing throughout the segment and couldn’t get through his lines without it. Why not do a second take? Even worse, later on in the show they had a Sheepherders match and Ace was out there carrying their flagpole. They covered for that by saying on commentary that Sullivan and McGraw released him. But later on the Sheepherders did a promo demanding Sullivan and McGraw release Ace before saying they’d start hurting people until he is released.
  • The Wheel of Torture in Memphis turned out to the faces’ benefit on its second week. Every match was a rematch from the September 7 Wheel of Torture show, and the faces won this one. Cute idea, but it didn’t really work to draw crowds. They really went full Wheel of Fortune ripoff, as even the model they had spinning the wheel was called Vanna Black. Dave’s sense is that Memphis is completely gimmicked out. All their matches on the August 31 card were gimmick matches (bullrope, chain on a pole, kendo stick, hickory stick, cattle prod, battle royal with all the above legal, and two hair matches in a cage and additional bets as well). Dave’s surprised that Lawler hasn’t avoided doing this - it’s basic wrestling psychology that the more gimmicks there are on a show, the less each means. With all the gimmicks and bets and stipulations, drawing less than 5,000 people and following up the next two weeks with all gimmicks has just led to a major drop in attendance. It’s just like Crockett’s big problem with having too many title matches on a show - the more title matches, the less meaningful. Having eight title matches on a show gives you nothing to come back to the area with, and the more titles the less meaningful the big ones are and the less they draw. There’s nothing special about a title if everyone has one, and that’s part of why WWF is more successful at retaining audience when they tour outside their home territory. They don’t have a lot of titles, they keep the gimmicks limited, and their tv product focuses on one big angle each week rather than overdosing the fans with too many angles to keep up with.
  • Andre’s movie he filmed last fall should be releasing soon. Dave thinks it’s called “Prince’s something or other.”
Watch: trailer for The Prince's Something-or-Other
  • Dave saw some of the work the luchadors have been doing in LA at the Olympic Auditorium and he seems to have mixed feelings. He’s not into the style at all, but there are some excellent moves. Dave thinks Negro Casas is the best luchador working in the U.S., and his home promotion is no longer promoting in LA, so he’s only here in San Bernadino now. Casas takes some of the best bumps ever, but on the whole Dave thinks the Japanese style is better executed and more realistic while Mexican style is more transparently choreographed and sloppy.
  • NAWA in Alberta have been canceling a lot of their shows lately, and that usually means problems.
  • World Grand Prix Wrestling in Nova Scotia is ending their current season in a couple weeks. Why do I mention them? Because they’ve got a fake Dynamite Kid working for them. So that's a thing.
  • The price for the Pro Wrestling This Week cruise is $899. For that you get a one week cruise and a wrestling card in San Juan, plus the chance to hang out on the cruise with the PWTW folks and Jerry Lawler, Wendi Richter, Hugo Savinovich, Bruiser Brody, Missing Link, Paul E. Dangerously, Red Bastien, Ken Mantell, Bill Apter, and Craig Peters (the last two work for Pro Wrestling Illustrated).
  • A letter comes in from a reader who found the quote in the April 1976 issue of Inside Wrestling. The writer wants to nominate it for the award for “best E.S.P. from a 25-year-old legend-to-be immediately after surviving a plane crash.” Enjoy the quote from a young Ric Flair:
When I return to the wrestling world, I will be better than ever. There is no force on heaven or Earth that can stop me from being the greatest grappler in history. My life story will be an inspiration to everyone...Ric Flair is destined to be the best wrestler in history...I will be the greatest wrestler the world has ever seen...As far as I am concerned, the sky is the limit.
  • Another letter writer thinks turning down Baba is a bad move by Brody. He writes that we should be real - Brody’s spent the past year working minor leagues and expecting the wrestling world to come to him. If things keep on course as they are, though, it’s likely that Brody will no longer be the commodity he is today.
  • Dave continues the roundup of favorites for the awards. This week he notes that best babyface is the easiest category. Hogan should have it on lock and by a landslide and no wrestler has been more over on a national and international basis than Hogan is presently. Dave thinks Riki Choshu is probably number 2, with Chigusa Nagayo in third. Anyone who’s seen AJW regularly won’t question her placement at all. He next covers most overrated. “In a business where being overrated is a plus because a promotion’s job is to make the public believe the wrestlers are better than they really are, I’m basing my picks on guys who are getting big pushes who if another wrestler had the same push, would be more effective in his role.” That actually really helps clarify what the award is about. Dave puts Dusty Rhodes, Kevin Von Erich, then Antonio Inoki as his top three. This has been a banner year for Most Disgusting Promotional Tactic. Dave says there’s one scene he has to pick, and which he will remember until he dies: Glenn Goza, a friend of the Von Erich family, reading a poem extolling Mike Von Erich just weeks after his suicide at the Texas Stadium show. The disgusting part is that he was “standing next to a mud pit (where a mud wrestling Battle Royal was to follow) and standing under the highest scaffold” Dave has ever seen. The nearly empty stadium behind Goza showed Dave he wasn’t the only one who felt put off by all of it. Most Embarrassing Wrestler is for the wrestler who makes you most embarrassed to be a fan when your non-fan friends see them. Dave says he hates to pick such a nice guy, but picks Giant Baba because although he is beloved in Japan, he sticks out like a sore thumb as his ability simply isn’t there anymore and physically he looks like he “died five years ago and was buried, and then the corpse was exhumed and skin was stretched over the bones and they stuck him in the corner to team with Tiger Mask.”
  • The new UWF show was bad, but remember that it’s aimed at introducing all the personalities to the New York market. They had Missy Hyatt, Jim Ross, and Magnum T.A. in a newsroom type setup and they showed a lot of clips, and doing that before getting the personalities over for the new market is probably a mistake, but Dave’s willing to give it a few weeks to work out the kinks and before he makes up his mind. For viewers already familiar with UWF, 90% of the show was repeat material. So we can feel much better about modern Raw with that in mind. There is one thing Dave will say about it now, though, and that’s that it had too many angles for casual fans to register (he watched with some casual fans who then watched WWF’s tv, and they remembered everything about the WWF show but nothing about the UWF show). The newsroom setup and clip introduction probably hurt things too - it’s hard to be spontaneous when you are presenting everything as pre-taped and nothing feels live.
  • Dave also went to the most recent WWF and Crockett shows in his area, and he thinks Crockett’s dropping the ball on local advertising. Do more localized promos to build up the card, even if just for the major cities. It really makes a difference in terms of building hype and getting fans in the door. At the NWA convention last week, Crockett and company should have focused on correcting the obvious problems they have (no localized promos, stale main event, tv product looking substandard compared to WWF, etc.) so they can get more fans and get them to appreciate their strength: better and wilder wrestling.
