TAPE 11

Quality: EX (Master Convert)

Length: 3 hrs (2 DVD)

MSG - 2/20/84 (Full MSG show from my favorite era of the WWF. I've got a VHS master convert so VQ is EX.)
Jose Luis Rivera vs Charlie Fulton B. Brian Blair vs Iron Mike Sharpe Samoan #1 vs Tony Garea Eddie Gilbert vs Iron Sheik (this one goes a little longer than the 2 minute TV squash that led to Sgt. Slaughter doing the Pledge of Allegiance...) Roddy Piper & David Schultz vs The Invaders Don Muraco vs Tito Santana (Santana has just won the I-C title and defends it here) Andre the Giant vs Masked Superstar (As a kid, I really thought Andre would unmask Superstar here. I was such a mark sometimes.) Paul Orndorff vs Hulk Hogan (Hogan's first MSG title defense; this is really an excellent match - I wish we could have gotten more like this with Hogan as champ. The fans go nuts for him and both guys end up looking strong.) Jimmy Snuka vs Samoan #3 Tony Atlas, Rocky Johnson, & Ivan Putski vs Mr. Fuji, Tiger Chung Lee & Sgt Slaughter (this is AFTER Slaughter's face turn. Slaughter went around the horn teaming with heels after his face turn to "fulfill his commitments" that were made back when he was a bad guy. I miss pieces of kayfabe like this - or like the new NWA champion taking over the schedule of the previous guy so you'd occasionally get heel vs heel or face vs face matches.)
