After failing to post several tapings' worth of episodes on their producer's YouTube channel, the American Wrestling Federation returned to YouTube in 2013 with new producers AND a new show - I guess the price of a 11PM Saturday slot on Channel 45 got to be too much compared to the price of the 9:30AM Sunday slot on Channel 23, thus "Saturday Night Slam" is dead and replaced with "Sunday Shockwave" ... although they STILL call it "Saturday Night Slam" (but have hastily muted out all the "45s") so clearly they can't plan that far ahead - hell, these tapings are three months old and I feel like they don't work with a lot of lead time. ANYWAY.

They've also introduced some highly entertaining office segments, so...you know...don't miss THOSE.

So if you've got a free four hours, burn through all these like I just did. The YouTube ones do NOT have any muting - and for some of them, you actually get more match than on the televised version as they had to make cuts to squeeze in all their hilarious Tony DeNucci-starring local advertisements. You also get a better picture than on Channel 23, which is unable to broadcast these tapes in HD yet. Boy, Sinclair sure is cheap!

All commentary by DJ DRAPER and "LIVEWIRE" JOHNNY PARKS except where noted - and if you never thought you'd miss Mick Karch, well...

EPISODE 10 aired 3/17
They're correcty self-identifying their show name and channel!!!!!!!

don't think they ever said, but by the process of elmination this has to have been taped from their show in Arlington, MN (1/12)
"Bulldog" SAMMY SAVARD v. MIKEY WIPEOUT
AWF Heavyweight Championship: former Olympian (!) CHAS BETTS v. BLACK STALLION (c)

Hey wait...when did Wild Cat lose the championship? Apparently it was in Howard Lake, MN on 12/15/2012 in front of an audience so tiny we're never going to get to see any TV episodes made out of the footage. Too bad, you'd think their big title changing hands would be worthy of television...

AARON CORBIN v. CHAS BETTS
JOHN JOHNSON v. "The Professional" BEN SAILER

EPISODE 12 aired 3/31

from Becker, MN (taped 1/26)
"Bulldog" SAMMY SAVARD v. "Livewire" JOHNNY PARKS
AIRYA DAIVAIRI v. CHAS BETTS

Wow, they're really riding Chas Betts, aren't they? They must think he's the next Kurt Angle or something - but also, hope that he's not REALLY the next Kurt Angle, or he won't be spending a whole lotta time in AWF...

EPISODE 13 aired 4/7

from Becker
AWF Elite Championship: CRAVEN KNYTE (c) v. RYAN CRUZ
AWF Heavyweight Championship: BLACK STALLION (c) v. ZERO KINCAIDE

two things 1) Owen Hart was a great wrestler. But I think his death has distorted his career. He was a great tag wrestler and a very good underneath wrestler. But he wasn't main event.
