The final attempt in beating the WWF
28 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was Verne Gagne's final chance of beating Vince McMahon and the WWF. The WWF had become huge, going national and breaking the tradition of wrestling being a territorial sport. This was the AWA's only pay per view show as they brought in wrestlers from Jerry Jarrett's CWA and Fritz Von Erich's WCCW. The show took place on December 13, 1988 from the UIC Pavilion in Chicago and did not even draw 2,000 fans. The main event was Jerry Lawler vs. Kerry Von Erich in a match that would unify the AWA and WCCW Titles. Lawler ended up winning the match. Even though Gagne recruited former WWF stars Wendi Richter, Sgt. Slaughter, the Iron Sheik and Michael Hayes, the show was a complete failure as pay per view buyrates were no better than the live gate. The AWA closed down a few years later after losing the majority of its wrestlers to the WWF and WCW. WCCW and the CWA joined together to form the USWA.
