AWF TV - Episode #7

1) Greg “The Hammer” Valentine vs. Chris Adams - 5
2) Koko B. Ware vs. Cowboy Bob Orton - 4
3) Sgt. Slaughter vs. Tommy Rich - 4
4) Curtis Hughes vs. Tito Santana – 4

Valentine and Adams put together a fairly standard match. While it wasn’t groundbreaking, it was still pretty technically sound. Orton and Koko lasted about five minutes and featured Orton winning with a three-quarter stack in a really cool finish. Really … it was. You just don’t see professional matches won with amateur moves anymore. Slaughter and Rich was fairly unmemorable and ended with the ref DQing Slaughter after he thought Rich was thrown over the top rope. Hughes and Santana featured a convoluted finish. The AWF lasted about two years from 1994-1996 and with the majority of the show featuring WWF cast-offs and squash matches, it’s hard to believe they even lasted that long.
