AWA All-Star Wrestling

Show Summary

AWA (American Wrestling Association) is a wrestling promotion based in Minnesota, which was owned by wrestling great Verne Gagne. The promotion is now owned by Dale Gagne. The first ever recognized A.W.A World Heavyweight Champion was the late Pat O'Connor in 1960 when the A.W.A branched off from the wrestling promotion N.W.A (National Wrestling Alliance.) The early 1990s the promotion ended, but did return in 1996 as the AWA All Stars. All Star Wrestling was an event that showcased wrestling matches, kind of like today�s WWE Raw and WWE Smackdown. The show was announced by Gene Okerlund. Many great legends wrestled on the show, such as Verne Gagne, Bobby �The Brain� Hennan, Nick Bockwinkel, Adrian Adonis, Dick The Bruiser, �Rugged� Ronnie Garvin, Tully Blanchard, Jim Brunzell, �Nature Boy� Ric Flair, Stan �The Lariat� Hansen, Curt Hennig, Larry �The Axe� Hennig, Blackjack Lanza, Jerry �The King� Lawler, Rick Martel, Sherri Martel, Diamond Dallas Page, �Leaping� Lanny Poffo, Baron Von Raschke, Sgt. Slaughter, �Crippler� Ray Stevens, Mad Dog Vachon, Kerry Von Erich, King Kong Bundy, just to name a few. It was also the promotion/show that helped start many wrestlers� careers as they proceeded to the WWE (then WWF) Hulk Hogan, "Macho Man" Randy Savage, Shawn Michaels, Marty Jannetty, Jake "The Snake Roberts, Scott Hall (Razor Ramon), King Kong Bundy, and tag teams like "Midnight Rockers" (The Rockers) "The Road Warriors" (Legion Of Doom) just to name a few.moreless
