    Colonel Buck Robley vs One Man Gang 9/15/82

    This was from Bill Watts Mid South Wrestling under a Lumberjack Match format. Look at some of the talent surrounding the ring: Paul Orndorff, Mr. Wrestling II, JYD, Iron Mike Sharpe, Dick Murdoch, Killer Khan...an eclectic group of stars from the early 80's. A young One Man Gang shows promise while Buck Robley (who was working a tenure as BW's booker) essentially places himself in an against all odds underdog position. Watch for the Watts staple 'clean finish' in a match that reminds of the definitive power of the pencil.

    Rick Martel & Tony Garea vs Mr. Fuji & Mr. Saito 1981

    This was from the World Wide Wrestling Federation at Madison Square Garden. World Tag Champions Mr. Fuji & Mr. Saito defend against popular former Champions Rick Martel & Tony Garea. A good example of old school booking back at a time when recurring tag programs helped to sell what was once the prime source of revenue. Listen as young pre-owner stage Vince provides commentary while his future right hand man Pat Patterson serves as special referee.

    Mr. Fuji & Toru Tanaka vs Jerry Lawler & Bill Dundee 6/4/79

    This was from Jerry Jarrett's Memphis based promotion. A short clip from action at the Mid South Coliseum. Champions Fuji & Tanaka defend against a pair of local Memphis legends. Watch for post match promo work by Jerry Lawler and Bill Dundee as they sell the return match while Lance Russell plays straight man.

    Black Gordman & Great Goliath vs Andre The Giant 3/22/74

    This was from the Los Angeles NWA affiliate ran by the LeBells (Judo Gene & Mike). It was formatted as a handicap match with Andre working his standard friendly giant comedy routine. It's a notable squash because Gordman and Goliath were normally booked in the area as a championship caliber team. Listen to how the announcers lay it on extra thick with the 'undefeated record', 'no man can even score a two count' and '8th wonder of the world' talk.

    Back in the day having a shot at programming Andre was a golden opportunity to make some very serious cash. There were different variations on the theme but what smart money minded bookers around the world all had in common was a focus on milking ATG's aura for all that it was worth. LEGENDSonline players now have that same opportunity...with some unique challenges thrown into the equation.
