A one hour wrestling show with very little wrestling. It could be perhaps perceived as the first shot (pun intended)...


Retro Wrestling Podcast Episode 90: AWA Superclash 3

30 years before ALL IN, talent from different wrestling promotions came together for AWA Superclash events. Superclash 3 was the only AWA show to ever make it to pay-per-view. Would the various wrestling promotions come together to make an amazing, unforgettable card that would challenge the WWF's reign at the top? Spoiler: no. Instead, they put on a dreadful show worthy of consideration for being one of the worst ever wrestling pay-per-views ever made. Much like AWA Superclash 3, the Retro...
