Wrestling at its best!
14 November 2003 | by (Dayton, Ohio) – See all my reviews

This event was awesome! The wrestlers drew names earlier in the evening, of who they would face. They compete in a tournament to determine who is the king of the ring. The matches for this event were Adrian Adonis vs. Corporal Kirshner, The Dynamite Kid vs. Nikolai Volkoff, Randy Savage vs. Ivan Putski, Davey Boy Smith vs. Ricky Steamboat, Terry Funk vs. Moondog Spot, The Junkyard Dog vs. The Iron Sheik, Tito Santana vs. Don Muraco, and Paul Orndorff vs. Cowboy Bob Orton. This event was an early incarnation of the King of the Ring event the WWF would eventually put on. On top of the tournament going on, Hulk Hogan defended his title against Rowdy Roddy Piper in one of their classic unfinished encounters. This event had awesome quality matches for the times. I particularly enjoyed the match up between The Dynamite Kid and Nikolai Volkoff. It was easy to see how the Dynamite Kid inspired such stars today as Chris Benoit, among others. I anyone is able to find this rare video, I encourage them to do so. This event was wrestling at its best!
