The SmarK 24/7 Rant for AWA SuperClash ’85 (September 28 1985)
– For some reason the full show didn’t appear on Sasktel until yesterday’s update, so I’ve been holding off until now. But I’ve been dying to see the full show for years now, so this is continued evidence of the awesomeness of the people who program this channel. The concept is that all the major non-WWF promotions are working together to beat the WWF, but since they can’t agree on ordering a cup of coffee, let alone running a show, things don’t work out. But it was quite the attempt. The most awesome story I’ve heard about this mess is that David Crockett, acting as the agent for the NWA, spent most of the time signing up AWA stars for his brother. Now those are some balls.
