This match is from June 28th 1986 it's Jerry Blackwell vs Stan "The Lariat" Hansen
For the AWA title yeah LOL why is this a title match?
Jerry punches Stan Stan then gets busted open for no reason did he blade too early? Or Did Jerry throw legit?
Stan the tries to slam Jerry and falls over...wow that was horrible
Bear hug to Hansen for like 3 minutes.... The referee just got knocked down...
Blackwell splashes Hansen wait there's no referee Stan then takes off his boot and beats Jerry with it
Blackwell is busted open now this is terrible Stan attacks the all ready fallen referee...
now Blackwell attacks Hansen with the boot and the referee gets up and WINNER VIA DQ: JERRY BLACKWELL
Still AWA Champion Stan Hansen!
Back with a promo with Stan Hansen Stan tells us to say no to you know what.. I don't know what, is it drugs?
Is it un-protected sex? I have no damn clue.

I love the AWA theme BTW....
OVERALL: "Well I raced from from a local bar that I was in got home at 11:52 hoping to see AWA I had to wait a half hour to see it then it was horrible, yet then again
I was amused at the horrible referee I mean really how could a referee suck I guess whoever Earthquake Farris is is the WORST REFEREE OF ALL TIME! This is just worth watching
if you don't have ESPN Classic call your local cable provider and demand it! Well that's all for this week have a good one! - Joe"
BTW Happy Birthday Dave Marcis!
