The SmarK Rant for AWA WrestleRock ’86 (04.20.86)
Not to be confused with Rock N’ Wrestling. Not that ANYONE would. Just in case you might be confused…
Live from Minneapolis, MN, drawing 22,000 to the Metrodome. I mean, reasonably impressive for the AWA, but that stadium was looking SPARSE on the wide shots. Maybe just doing an arena show would have been a better idea? By the end of the show the camera side was filling up pretty good, so they probably managed to paper the shit out of it. I can’t remember the details from that issue of the Observer or even if Dave reviewed the show.
Oddly, I’ve never done this show, and someone e-mailed asking for it, so why not?
