What feud from the territory days that never happened would you have liked to have seen the most? My dream feud would have been a heel Buddy Rose from the late 70's-early80's vs. a babyface Jerry Lawler. This could take place in either Portland or Memphis, but I think in order to get the most out of this feud Jerry would have to have went to Portland, because I think to make this feud live up to it's full potential Jerry would have to have faced Buddy with some form of his Army. I would have their feud blow off in a hair match and who goes over depends on where they are, if it's in Portland Rose goes over and if it's in Memphis Lawler does.

Good thread/topic.

Here's some for me:

Early 70's - Wahoo McDaniel (Dallas) vs. Dick The Bruiser (WWA/Indiana)

Mid 70's - Ron Fuller (SE) vs. Pak Song (Florida)

Late 70's - Mr. Wrestling II (Georgia) vs. a young Ric Flair (Mid Atlantic)

Early 80's - Freebirds (Georgia) vs. Greg Gagne & Jim Brunzell (AWA)

Mid 80's - Gino Hernandez & Chris Adams (Dallas) vs. The Rock and Roll Express (JCP)

Another feud I would have loved to have seen would have been Dusty Rhodes vs. Nick Bockwinkel with Dusty as the baby face and Nick as the heel. I know they had a couple matches with each other but I don't think they ever actually had a long program or a feud with each other. Just the promos that they would cut on each other would be enough for me, it would just be so entertaining with Bockwinkel being an obnoxious snob and talking down to everyone and Rhodes being the common every day man.

Heel Piper vs Dusty in 1981. Either in Florida or JCP.

Piper's promos in regards to Dusty's physique alone would be worth the price of admission.

Maybe give Piper some cronies (Slater? Orton?) to help make the odds more challenging for Big Dust.

I'm sure they did wrestle each other in JCP at some point, at least in tag matches. But I would have liked to see Wahoo vs Paul Jones. However, I'd want Wahoo to be the heel.

Also, how about Dr D David Shults versus Just About Anybody.

In my opinion, he was unforgivably underutilized. Great talker. Great worker. Had a legit tough guy aura about him, such that beating him would actually mean something.

And yet he had very few memorable programs on any significant stages.

Imagine him against ....

  • Junkyard Dog in MidSouth 1982
  • David Von Erich in Dallas 1983
  • Barry Windham in JCP 1987
  • Ricky Steamboat in JCP 1984
  • (as a Steve-Austinesque babyface!) vs Ted DiBiase in WWF 1987

Had an Apter Mag where they wrote about and had pictures from a Rhodes-Piper match. One picture had Rhodes in a sleeper and another he was getting slung into the ropes.

The story was something like Piper was going to run Rhodes out of Georgia. From the pictures it looked like it was at least a short program.

Shockingly, not a lot of interaction between them as opponents. Of course they were an insanely popular tag team for JCP in the mid-'70s.



When Jones first turned heel, Wahoo was mostly out of the territory except for shots here and there.

March 25 1979 - Asheville, NC
1] Herb Gallant beat Tony Russo
2] Terry Sawyer beat David Patterson
3] Sgt. Jacques Goulet beat Nick DeCarlo
4] Ernie Ladd & Kim Duk beat Pedro Morales & Skip Young
5] Tony Atlas beat Baron Von Raschke
6] "NWA" TV TITLE: Paul Jones and Wahoo McDaniel went to a double disqualification

Then they reformed their legendary team in 1981 to resume their feud with Ole & Gene Anderson.

August 19, 1982 - Winston Salem, NC
1] Juan Reynosa vs Kelly Kiniski
2] Ken Timbs & Ali Bey vs Mike Davis & Ron Ritchie
3] Jake Roberts vs Gene Anderson
4] Wahoo McDaniel & Roddy Piper vs Paul Jones & Sgt. Slaughter
5] NWA champion Ric Flair vs Jack Brisco

August 28, 1982 - Hampton, Va
1] Ron Ritchie beat Ken Timbs
2] Kelly Kiniski beat Juan Reynosa
3] Mike Rotundo beat The Scorpion
4] Wahoo McDaniel & Roddy Piper & Johnny Weaver beat Leroy Brown & Paul Jones & Sir Oliver Humperdink



Then Jones became a manager in early 1982.

While I know they faced each other in a handful of matches in Georgia in 1983 (or thereabouts), I would liked to have seen a full-blown feud between Mr. Wrestling II and Jake Roberts.

Their physical styles in the ring and contrasting styles on the mic (think about II's fiery promos compared to Jake's cool, sinister banter) could've been really fun.

If it happened in Georgia, I'd say II would had to have been the face and Jake the heel, but you could've mixed and match had it been in, say, Mid-South.

Billy Robinson v. Bruno Sammartino - First title run.

Didn't see Bruno wrestle during this time, but he claims to have altered his style to his opponent. I've leaned to appreciate Robinson recently and would enjoy watching Bruno try to keep up.

The matches with Wahoo/Jones vs The Andersons is what got me hooked on wrestling. One of my earliest memories of wrestling is watching Wahoo/Jones beat The Andersons so bad on TV that Ole and Gene wouldn't turn around and face the camera. I actually think they wrestled that night in the Greensboro Coliseum. Of course The Anderson's won, but looking back at it now, it was the perfect way to get fans to the arena.

We've had a buncha threads debating who was better- Flair or Bockwinkel?

How about they have an extended feud around 1982 and see who can outshine the other?

Could've sworn that actually happened when Dynamite was aligned with Buddy Rose against Roddy in Portland.

I've thought of something similar to that, but it was just with Bockwinkel being a substitution for Race in the main event with Flair, if Harley would have taken Vince McMahon's offer the night before Starrcade '83 to join the WWF, no show Starrcade and take the NWA title with him to the WWF. I think Bockwinkel vs. Flair would have been a better match and I also think there was a chance it could have made Flair a bigger star.

I don't think so, Roddy left Portland in 1981 and Dynamite didn't get there until '83.

Nick was well known in JCP but hadn't been there in more than three years, so would've taken some steam out if he just plopped in out of nowhere. If Harley had no-showed, it would've taken something drastic (like a Steamboat heel turn or something).
