Lawler's AWA work I've gotten familiar with. That's a territory I've gotten through a good portion of. Really does seem as if all I have left to tackle is Memphis & Mid-South classics. AHHHHHHH I was legit going to ask you to also send me any form of a link to the Eaton/Koko vs Cobra/Mantell tag, but you proceeded in telling me it was removed. Soul crushing. You should know by now that I'm for ANYTHING Eaton has to offer. I fucking adore that man and his work. I'm not particularly big on the Moondogs. I could see a brawl with them working of course. Of course their opponents turn out to be the Fabulous Ones, so there is a silver lining right there. (think you can piece together why I'm such a fan of Eaton & Lane era Midnight Express, huh?)
Oh shoot, the Murdoch vs Reed stuff you told me about. I knew Butch Reed had to come up in here. I might not be on Andy levels of marking for him (yet)
but I've always wanted to see his territory days. I'll ask despite departing atm - any JYD goodness from Mid-South? Almost certain he was their World Champion at one time. Oh and Buzz Saywer in something violent? Color me not shocked. Man is insane.
This is beautiful information. It seems like my 2010 kick might be replaced. I thought it was going to be by early 90's WWF (I relived King of the Ring '93 tonight - <3 Lawler - & wanted to watch EVERYTHING involving Bourne's time as Doink b/c I think the world of it.)
only now it might have to be more of these territories. So, with that being said I'm out for now. Busy tomorrow and I'll be back to check out the scaffold match whenever I can. Cheers, WC. (and the rest of the good natured lads of TTT.)
Dundee/Koko 6/21/82 : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_9Cr5_YfIYg
Best JYD match off memory from Mid South is the tag team Loser Leaves Town Match: Junkyard Dog & Mr. Olympia vs. Ted DiBiase & Matt Borne (Loser Leaves Town) 10/27/82
When I get the comps from Seabs and Cal there's a chance I could try my hand at uploading the tag, though I have a feeling that could be pretty disastrous.
As for Butch Reed: when the final poll was done for Mid South these turned up as his best matches:
Butch Reed vs. Dick Murdoch 9/22/85
Mr. Wrestling II & Magnum T.A. vs. Butch Reed & Jim Neidhart (Cage Match) 12/25/83
Butch Reed vs. Dick Murdoch 10/14/85
Ric Flair vs. Butch Reed 8/10/85
Andy as you said is a huge fan of Reed, and no doubt he'd be able to provide a greater list of Reed matches which are worth your time than I can based off of memory.
Can't forget Murdoch/Windham 7/11/87 either, amazing match.
