Jimmy Snuka Charged With 1983 Murder

http://411mania.com/wrestling/jimmy-snuka-charged-with-murder/   This has been rumored for years now and it’s finally happening 32 years later. Snuka already has stomach cancer and there’s a good chance he could be going down for this too.  This has really been a bad year for 80s stars but this is a different kind of bad.

Required Viewing #2: The Only Partner Ric Flair Needs

I did the first one of these nearly six months ago and didn’t care for how it went but I thought I’d take another crack at it.  If you’ve never seen the original, take a look to get the idea. http://kbwrestlingreviews.com/2013/08/23/required-viewing-1-the-horsemen-put-hard-times-on-dusty-rhodes/ Today we’re going back to 1983 and the angle that set up Starrcade.

On This Day: November 24, 1983 – Starrcade 1983: The First

On This Day: October 17, 1983: The Move That Launched 1000 Careers

WWF House Show Date: October 17, 1983 Location: Madison Square Garden, New York City, New York Commentators: Gorilla Monsoon, Pat Patterson Now this is a very interesting one.

On This Day: September 3, 1983 – Portland Wrestling: I’d Watch This

Portland Wrestling Date: September 3, 1983 Location: Portland Sports Arena, Portland, Oregon Commentators: Dutch Savage, Don Coss This is another of those companies that I’ve never gotten around to but a lot of big names made the rounds here over the years.

CWA Championship Wrestling Date: January 8, 1983 Location: WMC-TV Studios, Memphis, Tennessee Commentators: Lance Russell, Dave Brown Back to Memphis for another week of a not very interesting show. Hopefully this week is better as in theory Jerry Lawler will be back. He’s coming up on a rematch with Bockwinkel where I’m sure there won’t […]

CWA Championship Wrestling – January 1, 1983: Dig That Rookie Jim Cornette!

CWA Championship Wrestling Date: January 1, 1983 Location: WMC-TV Studios, Memphis, Tennessee Commentators: Lance Russell, Dave Brown It’s been awhile since I’ve done anything from this company, but it’s the Memphis company that eventually merged with WCCW into the USWA.

AWA Super Sunday 1983 – Hogan’s Entrance Is A Sight To See

AWA Super Sunday 1983 Date: April 24, 1983 Location: St. Paul Civic Center, St. Paul, Minnesota Attendance: 20,000 Commentator: Ron Trongard This is another AWA stadium show which have mostly been bad so far.

WWF House Show Date: October 17, 1983 Location: Madison Square Garden, New York City, New York Commentators: Gorilla Monsoon, Pat Patterson Now this is a very interesting one.

WWF Championship Wrestling – September 24, 1983 – Eddie Gilbert Can’t Catch A Break

WWF Championship Wrestling Date: September 24, 1983 Location: Agricultural Hall, Allentown, Pennsylvania Commentators: Vince McMahon, Pat Patterson Another random show for me to do while I wait on a Raw to download. This is from before Hogan debuted again but he was coming quickly. Other than that there isn’t much to say here. My best […]
