WORLD WRESTLING ASSOCIATION
Welsh Auditorium
Grand Rapids, Michigan February 12, 1985
Referees: Tommy Weathers, Suzie Tanner, Rick Ferrara

UNITED STATES TITLE

FIRST ROUND:
*Nick Busick b. Bruno Sammartino, Jr. (W)
Both men try for a German suplex finisher. On the attempt by Sammartino, Busick gets his shoulder up. Bruno, Jr. is pinned.

*Dick the Bruiser b. Eddie Mansfield w/Buddy Rogers (T)
Rogers slaps Mansfield by mistake, giving Bruiser a chance to roll The Continental Lover up for the win.

*Ernie Ladd b. Dan Spivey/Buddy Rogers (F)
Another big boot from The Cat finishes off Spivey. Rogers argues with Ladd, post match. That gives Spivey a chance to chop block the right knee.

*The Sheik b. Scott Casey (W)
Casey missesa top rope elbow here. That gives Sheil a chance to, eventually, lock in the camel clutch to get a submission advance.

INTERMISSION

UNITED STATES TITLE

SEMIFINALS:
*Dick the Bruiser b. Nick Busick. (F)
Bruiser gets a bit of revenge here, pinning Busick’s shoulders while applying his abdominal claw. Busick tries to cheap shot Bruiser but thinks better of it.
*The Sheik b. Ernie Ladd by COUNTOUT. (W)
The knee injury that Ladd suffered at the hands of Spivey is the turning point here. Both men lambast each other silly. But the brutal punishment dished out by Sheik on the knee is too much. Ladd is counted out on the floor when he can’t get back in.

WWA MIDWEST TITLE (T)
*Killer Kahn © w/King Curtis b. Joe Savoldi

INTERMISSION

UNITED STATES TITLE

FINALS:
*Dick the Bruiser b. The Sheik (F)
During the match, Sheik takes off one of the turnbuckle covers. Later, Bruiser money flips the evil Arabian into the steel. Busted open, Sheik is ripe for a brain claw. Despite several valiant attempts to recover, Bruiser makes it too hard to overcome the pressure. Sheik’s shoulders are pinned.

DICK THE BRUISER IS THE UNITED STATES CHAMPION.

Not too surprised to see Bruiser win the belt in “his” territory. I was more than a little shocked to see Ladd get as far as he did. Ernie was pretty worn down by this time I thought and him and the Sheik, while a draw, would only have been a bloody mess.

I do really like Killer Khan as the Mid-West Champion. And with King Curtis in his corner, I’ll be interested to see who can give him a run for the belt. Joe Savoldi was certainly a good early challenge.

Good show.

congrats to Bruiser, but he better be ready cause the challengers are lining up.

Loved the tournament.
