• OLD SCHOOL HISTORY (March 17, 1984) – WWF Wrestling At The Chase
On this day in 1984, the World Wrestling Federation aired another episode of their weekly TV show ‘WWF Wrestling At The Chase’.
The ‘Wrestling at the Chase’ TV show was originally associated with the ‘St. Louis Wrestling Club’ NWA territory, so they featured the NWA Wrestling Superstars, but in the fall of 1983, the TV station KPLR-TV (Channel 11) ended the relationship with the National Wrestling Alliance and started to negotiate a deal with the World Wrestling Federation, the promotion that ended up taking over the famous TV show.
This episode was pre-taped in St. Louis, Missouri and featured the 1984 WWF Superstars.
You can find the card below:
– Tito Santana vs. Rene Goulet
– Piper’s Pit: Jimmy Snuka
– David Schultz vs. Brian Madden
– Adrian Adonis & Dick Murdoch vs. Lou Chaney & Terry Daniels
– Rocky Johnson & Tony Atlas vs. Israel Matia & Bob Bradley
• New WWE Star Has Already Talked About A WrestleMania 36 Match With John Cena
During a recent interview with Gorilla Position, new WWE main roster star EC3 said he wants to face 16 time WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena at WrestleMania 36 and that he has already talked to Cena about it.
EC3 said he’s going to work really hard to make this match a reality next year:
“That’s my goal, that’s my aspiration and a match I’m going to work for and putting it out there in the universe. Saying you’re going to do something and going out and going out and doing it there’s no better feeling in the world. So I’m saying that’s what I’m gonna go out and do, let the chips fall where they may.”
EC3 made his WWE main roster debut earlier this year and things aren’t looking good for him right now.
He did pick up a big win over former WWE Champion Dean Ambrose in his debut match on RAW, but things have went downhill since then.
Ambrose went on to defeat EC3 the next week and avenged his loss. EC3 hasn’t had a match on RAW or SmackDown since then.
He has had a couple of matches on WWE Main Event since then and he has lost to the following wrestlers in those matches:
– Apollo Crews
– Tyler Breeze
For those who don’t know, Crews & Breeze are used like enhancement talent on RAW and EC3 losing to them (especially this soon in his main roster career) doesn’t sound good.
It wouldn’t be surprising at all (given WWE’s history) if WWE officials have already given up on him.
