Today in Wrestling History

Today in Wrestling History for September 14th


1937 - John Pesek was awarded the NWA (National Wrestling Association) World Heavyweight Title when the NWA decided that a $1000 bond would have to be posted by the champion for the title belt. Everett Marshall had been the recognized champion until the meeting where this decision was made, however, when the NWA announced this decision, Pesek was the only contender willing to post the bond (Marshall refused), so he was made the champion! The NWA later reconsidered their decision, and awarded the title to Lou Thesz when he defeated Marshall for the Midwest Association Heavyweight Title three months late

1977 - Peter Miavia (grandfather of The Rock) defeats WWWF World Champion Superstar Billy Graham via pinfall in a non-title match in Portland, Maine. The two would feud for several months, trading wins via countout, before Graham would pin Miavia in a title match in December in Bangor, Maine.

1980 Andre The Giant defeated Hulk Hogan in Landover, Maryland when Hogan attempted to slam Andre and fell back with Andre landing on top of him for the pin. The same sequence would become a memorable moment in the opening seconds of their famous Wrestlemania 3 encounter (except in that case, the referee would rule that Hogan kicked out before the three count). 

1986 - WWF tapes the seventh edition of Saturday Night's Main Event at the Richfield Coliseum in Richfield, Ohio. The show would air on NBC on October 4th, earning a 9.4 rating. Here are the results of the show: 
Aired on SNME:
.
- Ricky Steamboat defeated Jake Roberts with a cradle. After the match, Jake Roberts went for his snake, but Steamboat pulled out a kimono dragon and scared off Roberts.
-  

 Roddy Piper defeated The Iron Sheik with a small package in under a minute.  Pedro Morales was going to substitute for the injured Piper, but Piper threatened to hit Morales with his crutch if he didn't leave the ring. 

-  

World Champion Hulk Hogan defeated Paul Orndorff via DQ when Adrian Adonis attacked Hogan. Roddy Piper, who had an injured leg, made the save, attacking Adonis with his crutch, then leaving the ring after a stare down with Hogan.

 

1993 - The Quebecers defeat the Steiner Brothers for the WWF Tag Team Title in New York City, ending the Steiners second, and final WWF Tag Title run, at a Monday Night Raw taping at the Manhattan Center. The match was held under "Providence Of Quebec Rules", which allowed the belt to change hands on a DQ. Other results from that show: Mr. Perfect pinned Tony DeVito, Razor Ramon pinned the Executioner, Doink (Matt Borne) pinned Rich Myers. In other matches held, with some airing the following week, Mr. Perfect pinned Mike Bell, PJ Walker (a rookie Justin Credible) pinned Irwin R. Shyster after Razor Ramon distracted IRS, Scott Steiner pinned Quebecer Pierre Oulette, Bret Hart & Randy Savage defeated WWF champion Yokozuna & Bam Bam Bigelow via DQ.

Jerry Lawler Updates



(courtesy Online Wrestling Network)
LAWLER SHOCKED 7 TIMES BEFORE BEING BROUGHT BACK TO LIFE - Brian Christopher, the son of WWE Hall of Famer Jerry "The King" Lawler, wrote a message with an update regarding his father who yesterday underwent angioplasty following his heart attack during the live RAW broadcast. The former Too Cool member said that Lawler was shocked 7 times backstage by EMTs using a defibrillator before being brought back to life, raising concerns that there might be a possibility of brain damage due to lack of oxygen to the brain when he was clinically dead. "Everyone out there needs to say a special prayer for his brain at this point, please. Tests on his brain will not be available until the morning," he wrote. On a more positive outlook, he wrote that Jerry is being responsive to questions and sedation and breathing support are being lowered slowly which is a good sign.

NO BRAIN DAMAGE FOR JERRY LAWLER - WMC-TV is reporting that Jerry Lawler's CT scan results do not show any signs of brain damage following the heart attack on Monday. Lawler was clinically dead backstage as EMTs and WWE's medical team did their best to revive him. It took 7 shocks to get his heart beating again and it was feared that the time it took would have resulted in some sort of brain damage. The news was revealed by Joe Cooper, Lawler's best friend and business partner. Several family members are in Montreal to stay close to the WWE Hall of Famer but others are still behind trying to get a passport quickly. His son Brian Christopher later updated his Facebook page with the good news. "The CT scan of my dad's brain came back good! With his brain not receiving oxygen for as long as it did there was a chance he could have had brain damage. I truly believe everyone's prayers are working and the Lord is holding him in the palm of his hand," he wrote. Lawler is stabilized at a Montreal hospital and while still sedated, he is responding to his family members including squeezing his girlfriend's hand according to WMC-TV.

ROSS WRITES BLOG ABOUT HIS FRIEND JERRY LAWLER - Jim Ross wrote a long and heart-warming blog about his good friend and former broadcast partner Jerry Lawler on his JRsBBQ.com website, detailing the moments he realized that King was in trouble and mentioning that both of his parents died of heart attacks at the age of 64. Ross spoke highly of the EMTs and the WWE medical team that attended to the fellow Hall of Famer on Monday, saying that if Lawler was somewhere else - restaurant, driving, or even wrestling at an indy show - the outcome would have been different due to the lack of immediate help. JR also said that he doesn't think he and King are over and can still see a road trip and calling more matches together, describing him as his favorite broadcast partner of all time. Ross also had words of praise for Michael Cole and how he handled the situation on live television. "There aren't adequate words to express the stellar job that Michael Cole did sitting at the broadcast desk," Ross noted. Cole had to sit at the table for another hour, giving updates and looking like an emotional wreck in the process. JR closed his blog by calling the work of Punk, Cena, and Hart, "nothing short of extraordinary" considering the circumstances. "I am proud of each man and the entire WWE team for responding in the face of immense adversity that faced them in Montreal."
