Wacky...this past weekend, driving past Lambeau Field, I spotted a car with Wisconsin sesquicentennial (read: 1998) custom plates, spelling out this message:


I never thought I'd see Magnum TA fans again. His only work I saw were clips on "WCW All Night" of his old NWA feud with Flair...the one where Flair gets him a tailored suit, and Magnum rips it to pieces in the ring...the old ring inside the WTBS studios with "NWA" in gold on the blue ring apron, with international flags in the background, and the interview "desk" nearby. (When the hell was that, anyway?

Uh...reaction, Magnum TA fans?

Star wipe, and...we're out.
Thrillin' ain't easy.

If you can get your hands on it, he had a brutal best of seven series (the original, not to be confused with the "Benoit vs Booker T best of seven to get a shot at Fit Finlay's WCW TV Title") with Nikita Koloff during the month long Great American Bash 1986. This was a tremendous matchup and the commercially availiable GAB 1986 tape has match #4 on it.

The feud over the Flair suit was in the early Summer of 1985. Trust me, there are many fans of the heir to the throne still out there.

Wasn't the Benoit/Booker T best of seven actually over the T.V. title and not the title shot?

I've got an old Crockett Cup tape that has 3 of Magnum's greatest matches on it - I still mark out for the "I Quit" match with Tully Blanchard.

"Me, I need tending. Someone to take care of me. Someone to rub my tired muscles, smooth out my sheets."

"Get married."

"I just need it for tonight."

Originally I think it was supposed to be for the title, but then the geniuses in WCW had the belt go to Fit Finley right before the Best of Seven Series.

Thank you Mr. Wanz for the check, now you get an AWA World Title Reign. But be careful, my boy Greg is a heat machine.

Man, I loved that show. TC, Higgins, the sets in beautiful Hawaii...

Wait, I am thinking of Magnum PI. My mistake.

I like what I've seen Michael McGillicutty. I'll stay behind him for another week. I hate Michael Cole so much for his over-shilling of the Miz. Even JR at his worst was never this much of a shill for Austin.
