• Ric Flair’s Son-In-Law Is Bringing Back A Famous Old School AWA PPV
According to the Wrestling Observer, Conrad Thompson’s Starrcast convention company filed the trademark for ‘Superclash’ on September 7th, one month after already securing the trademark for ‘Southwest Championship Wrestling’.
Here are the official details:
“Entertainment in the nature of wrestling contests; Entertainment services, namely, wrestling exhibits and performances by a professional wrestler and entertainer.
Providing wrestling news and information via a global computer network; Providing online interviews featuring professional wrestling and sports entertainers in the field of professional wrestling and sports entertainment for entertainment purposes.”
Superclash was an event promoted by Verne Gagne’s American Wrestling Association (AWA) in 1985, 1987, 1988 and 1990, but only the 1988 edition actually made it to pay-per-view.
‘Superclash III’ (1988) also featured Superstars from World Class Championship Wrestling (WCCW) and the Championship Wrestling Association (CWA Memphis Wrestling).
It remains to be seen what Ric Flair’s son-in-law Conrad will do with the rights to the classic AWA event’s name in the future.
