Today in Wrestling History (Stan Hansen)

Today in 1988 - Stan 'The Lariat' Hansen defeats Genichiro Tenryu to win the NWA United National Championship & the PWF World Heavyweight Championship. 

This would be the final reigns for both titles before being unified with the NWA International Heavyweight Championship and forming the AJPW Triple Crown Heavyweight Championship

  1. Stan Hansen is one of my all time favorite heels. Loved his work in WCW. Should have been a bigger star in the states. I remember Tenryu teaming with Koji Kitao to defeat Demolition at WrestleMania VII.
