Great North Wrestling,held its first ever card tonight from the FARGODOME in Fargo,ND! GNW's base of operations emanates from Mankato Minnesota, but will cover the following states,MN,IA,WI,MT,ND,SD,MI and portions of our neighbors to the north Canada!Here are the results from tonight's historic card from Fargo,ND....winners will be in ALL CAPS.
1. BUDDY ROSE VS. The Sandman.
This match went back and forth,in the end it spilled outside the ring where Sandman was DQ'ed for refusing to stop wailing Rose with a chair!
2.GIANT BABA vs. Iron Sheik.
Not even close as the big man never really let the Iranian get any momentum pinning him with relative ease.
3.JOHNNY VALENTINE vs. Killer Kowalski
Arguably the best match of the Night. These two legends battled in and out of the squared circle,at one point Kowalski looked nigh unstoppable, but Valentine weathered the storm and the brutal beating to pin the Killer!
4.JIMMY SNUKA vs. Ox Baker
Another slobber-knocker between 2 amazing competitors.Frustrated by Snuka's aerial assault,the Ox turned to his rule-breaking ways and was disqualified.The crowd roared as these two battled all the way back to the dressing-rooms.
5.ROAD WARRIORS vs.The Valiants for the inaugural GNW Tag-Team Championship!
The boys from NYC brought their A-game,but eventually the LOD exerted their will over the brothers, pinning Johnny Vailiant and thus became the very first team to hold GNW Tag-Team Gold!...bit we haven't seen the last of the Valiants
6.HARLEY RACE vs.Buddy Rogers for the GNW Heavyweight Championship!
A long and epic exhibition of professional wrestling!These 2 gladiators battled for nearly 60 minutes both having plenty of pin attempts.In the end Race was able to piledrive his way to the gold.
There you have it folks this Fed is officially in the books....next stop is next week live from the Xcel Energy Center in St.Paul,MN where the GNW will crown its first Inter-State Champion with an Eight Man Tournament!...

Excellent first card. You cannot go wrong with Race and the Warriors holding the gold. They both have been long term champions for me in my Maple Leaf Wrestling Fed.
Looking forward to the potential return matches for Rose v Sandman and Baker vs Superfly

GNW ON TOUR Duluth,Minnesota 12/26/21
Another amazing card from GNW this time from The Duluth Civic Center.... here is the rundown,winners are in ALL CAPS.
1.JOHNNY VALIANT vs. Frank Gotch. The crowd in attendance was just as stunned as we were with the outcome of this opening bout..Mr. Valiant started out quickly using a low blow followed by a series of illegal tactics, to slow down the superior wrestling abilities of his opponent.Gotch finally getting his bearings controlled things until Johnny V.turned the tide again illegally,and took a powder out of the ring. Gotch having his fill of Valiant's antics, gave chase.Long story short Gotch could not stop his assault outside the ring and was DQ'ed.
2. OX BAKER vs. Gorgeous George. Baker who was fuming over his not getting another shot at Mr.Snuka,gave the crowd and the GNW powers that be a severe lambasting!His opponent primped and preened his way to the ring,George was animate that Mr.Baker go shower before they grappled....that was all it took to set Ox off,who then pummeled Gorgeous George from pillar to post...finishing him the DREADED HEART PUNCH.
3.IRON SHEIK/N.VOLKOFF vs. Red Bastien/Buddy Rogers.This match looked good on paper, but the actions of Buddy Rogers,much to Mr. Bastien's chagrin made this easy pickings for the team of Sheik/Volkoff...Rogers disdain for his partner's performance led to missed tag chances,done on purpose by Rogers. Eventually the "Nature Boy"...leaves the arena leaving Bastien to fend for himself and he was no match to the onslaught losing by submission to the Iron Sheik's CAMEL CLUTCH.
4.KING KONG BUNDY vs. JOHNNY VALENTINE 30 MINUTE TIME LIMIT DRAW. This match had it all...Bundy on the offensive early looking like it was going to be a short night.But Valentine with his intestinal fortitude surviving 2 pin attempts, hung in to turn the tables on the big man! As Valentine goes for the pin on the totally gassed Bundy,the ref got to the 2-count before time expired.....these 2 will certainly meet again...
5.MAIN EVENT NO DQ,NO TIME LIMIT
Buddy Rose vs. THE SANDMAN. This meeting was more brutal and raw than the previous encounter. Rose promising to out-wrestle Sandman did so with ease ...in the beginning. Rose missing a splash in the turnbuckle,was just what The Sandman needed. He then proceeded to choke,kick, bite and use every weapon at his disposal keeping the fight outside the ring. Rose had his moments outside the ring and both grapplers were bleeding profusely!..after throwing the "Playboy" once more into the ring post Sandman tosses his foe into the ring. Grabbing his Singapore Cane several times he falls on top of the motionless Rose and gets the "W".
What a night in Duluth!...once again GREAT NORTH WRESTLING doesn't disappoint....next is the 8-Man INTER-STATE TOURNEY 12/30/21 in St.Paul....see you there!!!

With another GNW Update!!!!....here's "MEAN" Gene Okerlund......
GENE:The excitement is mounting here in Great North Wrestling,as we look to crown our first GNW INTER-STATE Champion at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul on Dec.30th!This belt is the the final title as of now, here in GNW to be up for grabs! Who of the 8 men scheduled to fight it out,will join the GNW WORLD CHAMPION Harley Race, and the GNW Tag-Team Champions the Road Warriors as the inaugural INTER-STATE Champion? That will be settled on Dec. 30th at the sold out Xcel Energy Cen....(Ox Baker rips the mic from Okerlund's hand.....seething he stares directly into the camera....
OX:How dare you exclude the "Fantastic" Ox Baker from this tournament! For my entire career I've made a reputation beating people up!...I went down to Florida and Dusty Rhodes wanted a piece of me so I knocked him down! Dick the Bruiser thought he was a tough guy, and I came to Indiana and he cried "Oh....Ox please don't hurt me, I'm the World's Most Dangerous Wrestler...and I knocked him out....Listen up GNW...I am inevitable,I'm not going anywhere...I like to hurt people...and I'm gonna use this Heart-Punch to lay waste to anybody brave enough to step into the ring with OX BAKER!!!....stop shaking GENE I'm not gonna hit.....you!(Ox hands the mic back to a trembling Okerlund and stomps off.)
GENE:That is one angry OX,I certainly wouldn't want to be in his cross-hairs! WHEW...where was I,oh yes the first round of the big Inter-State Tournament has been set...here are the pairings:
Jimmy Snuka vs. Ted Dibiase
Greg Valentine vs. Bobo Brazil
Nick Bockwinkel vs. Red Bastien
Jimmy Valiant vs. King Kong Bundy
All the excitement takes place on Dec. 30th in St.Paul....this just announced another GNW ON TOUR card has just been scheduled for Jan.4 2022 at the TYSON EVENTS CENTER in Sioux City IA! 4 newly signed wrestlers will be debuting on that awesome card...keep checking here for more info in the coming days....This is MEAN Gene Okerlund saying good night and things are heating up in THE GREAT NORTH!

The GNW braves the abysmal Minnesota winter weather, to invade the Xcel Energy Center for the INAUGURAL INTER-STATE CHAMPIONSHIP TOURNAMENT! The enormous raucous fans witnessed one for the ages....here are the round by round results....winners are in ALL CAPS.
1. JIMMY SNUKA vs. Ted Dibiase.
Dibiase started out strong with technical stuff, slowing his quicker more agile opponent....applying his Million Dollar Sleeper early, but too early and eventually Snuka got the upper-hand and out muscled Dibiase, and finished him after 2 consecutive "Superfly" leaps.
2.JIMMY VALIANT vs. King Kong Bundy. UPSET of the night as Bundy has been having his troubles here in the GNW,not being able to run roughshod over his opponents.This one did go back and forth, and in and out of the ring.Bundy again runs out of steam and gets pinned by Jimmy's SUPER ELBOW in 20:45.
3.Greg Valentine vs. BOBO BRAZIL.
Another great pairing as these two started a melee before the bell could even ring! Valentine looked sharp early and the action spilled outside the ring, both men were nearly counted out and even disqualified. Brazil finally used his size and strength to turn the tide pinning Valentine after several Coco Butts followed by a HAMMER PUNCH.
4.NICK BOCKWINKEL vs. Red Bastien.
Brimming with confidence coming into the tournament,Bockwinkel shined in his opening match. Bastien was sharp and the chess game was on. Back and forth they chain-wrestled to perfection. Bastien missed a deathjump thinking he had Bockwinkel down ....big mistake as Nick took over from Bastien's miscue to win the match with his SLEEPER! Time 11:35.
As the throng of fans return from the concessions and/or potty break..."MEAN" Gene Okerlund informs the crowd that the GNW will next be in action Jan. 4th in Sioux City IA, at THE TYSON EVENTS CENTER... with 6 big matches. The MAIN EVENT will be tonight's Champion in their first title defense...against JOHNNY VALENTINE...and the GNW TAG-TEAM CHAMPIONS the Road Warriors will be in non-title action vs. The Iron Sheik/N.Volkoff....plus the GNW debuts of D'lo Brown,One Man Gang, A mystery guest, and the debut of a really strange tag-team....as well as other superstars of GREAT NORTH WRESTLING...
Jimmy Snuka vs. BOBO BRAZIL.
This one was exciting and physical. BOTH combatants had highs and lows, the ebb and flow was surprisingly fast considering these men had already wrestled one match...Snuka began to show signs of wearing down....and the cagey Brazil seized the opportunity laid before him delivering 2 patented COCO BUTTS,followed by a Death Valley Driver to get the pin. In a show of respect Brazil shook and raised Snuka's hand to the roar of the appreciative crowd. Time 13:35
NICK BOCKWINKEL vs. Jimmy Valiant.
This one sadly wasn't even close,as clearly Jimmy was spent after his epic first round match with King Kong Bundy...submitting in 8:43 to BOCKWINKEL'S Figure 4 Leg-Lock, thus earning the right to battle Bobo Brazil for the championship.
"MEAN" Gene also informs those in attendance,that the GNW will also be stopping in Rochester, MN on Jan. 14th with another awesome card featuring a title Defense by GNW WORLD CHAMPION HARLEY RACE....and reminds them to keep their ears peeled for the next GNW UPDATE for more info on the next two stops, in the coming days....NOW IT'S TIME FOR THE GNW INTER-STATE CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH...the huge crowd roars in approval....here we go!
------ GNW INTER-STATE CHAMPIONSHIP------
Bobo Brazil vs. NICK BOCKWINKEL.
The two battle-worn men, duke it out with everything they could muster...Bockwinkel at one point tossed Brazil from the ring in frustration..they both pummeled each other outside the squared circle nearly getting counted out....there were pin attempts by both men,almost taking turns...finally after working on Brazil's legs...keeping him on the mat late in the match..and kicking him repeatedly in his exposed ribs, BOCKWINKEL slaps on the FIGURE-FOUR and garners the belt....time 34:37....
MEAN GENE: Congratulations Nick Bockwinkel on becoming the very 1st GNW INTER-STATE CHAMPION........
BOCKWINKEL:It was never in doubt,but thanks anyway....tonight you witnessed perfection personnafied....and everybody in the back and in this whole company...if you want it, come get it...lace them boots, and pack a lunch..it's gonna be a loooong day...for you!...time to celebrate! (Bockwinkel heads to the back,the belt held high as the fans boo.)
GENE: There you have it folks, what a night, travel safely home,it's awful outside...but IT'S HEATING UP IN THE GREAT NORTH!!!!...., GOOD NIGHT see you all again soon.

******1/4/2022 GNW ON TOUR card (2)******
TYSON EVENTS CENTER, Sioux City, IA
GNW keeps on rolling with another stellar card in its IOWA debut...here are the results....winners in ALL CAPS.
1.D'LO BROWN vs. One Man Gang
This opener,turned out to be an eye opener for GANG, who may have underestimated his opponent. After surviving the initial OMG assault, D'lo moves out of the corner just in time to avoid a big splash, then pins GANG after executing a perfect springboard moonsault at the 10:43 mark!!
2."THE IRRESISTIBLES" G.GEORGE/A.STREET vs.The Valiant Bros.
Yes that's right THE IRRESISTIBLES made their debut in style beating the veteran team of Jimmy/Johnny Valiant. With Right Said Fred's "I'm Too Sexy" blaring through the house speakers, THE IRRESISTIBLES sauntered down to the ring as the crowd voiced its displeasure! After much ado about nothing, and after the impromtu fashion show the bell rang. AFTER that things got serious as Gorgeous George and Johnny got things started.Back and forth these teams battled it out with the tide turning outside the ring where Adrian Street slammed Jimmy's head into the time-keepers table. Avoiding the DQ, he tosses Valiant back into the ring and finishes him with a Flying Crucifix from the top turnbuckle! Time 14:30
3.Greg Valentine vs. BOBO BRAZIL.
In a rugged contest, neither wrestler seemed to be able to dominate the other. With the power game pretty even, Brazil surprisingly the more agile, dug into his limited repertoire and out maneuvered the plodding ground game of "The Hammer". And with a choke, a kick, and toss Greg manages to get the fight out to the floor. There all hell breaks loose and the referee disqualifies VALENTINE for excessive chair usage...time 11:50
Ring Announcer Brian Sager, reminds everyone about the next big GNW ON TOUR card to be held in ROCHESTER, MN on Jan 14th...plus upcoming events scheduled for THE TYSON EVENTS CENTER....the crowd makes their way back to their seats...and we are back to the Action!***************
4.Randy Savage vs. BUDDY ROGERS.
YES the surprise they have been teasing...the much awaited unveiling of the newest superstar to ink with GNW THE MACHO MAN strides down to the ring as the crowd go nuts!!!...his opponent the "NATURE BOY" doesn't seem too impressed...the ref checks both men and the bell rings.....Savage naturally the aggressor pushes the pace early with his power game,and Rogers is frustrated...but the cagey Nature Boy soon has his offense humming on all cylinders and back and forth we go....Savage nearly gets the pin with a dive off the top rope, but Rogers kicks out...the match rages with each move and counter move finally a moment that would change things...a double-clothesline...then Rogers the more conditioned athlete...makes Savage submit after wearing him down further, using his patented figure four grape-vine. Time 23:20
5.I.SHEIK/N.VOLKOFF vs. Road Warriors (Ch) non-title match.
In true Warriors fashion the Champs storm the ring and start pounding the daylights out of VOLKOFF and tossing the IRON SHEIK out of the ring, the bell sounds and the carnage continues.The big Russian manages to weather the storm and turns the tide to down ANIMAL. Using quick tags and high impact moves, the Champs are shell-shocked. Animal manages a hot tag and HAWK comes in with a head of steam and clears the ring. Outside the ring a melee ensues the ref had his hands full. VOLKOFF and ANIMAL trading blows on the floor, while the Iron Sheik drives Hawk's head into the ringpost and rolls the dazed big man into the ring. Being the legal participants the SHEIK slaps on his CAMEL CLUTCH and Hawk taps out before Animal can make a save! Time 15:32, With the win the Sheik/Volkoff earn a shot for the belts at the GNW ON TOUR SHOW in RAPID CITY, SD on Jan.18th.
*******GNW INTER-STATE CHAMPIONSHIP******
**Johnny Valentine vs. NICK BOCKWINKEL***
The crowd witnessed a battle of epic proportions as both men came into this match on a mission. Valentine with a big chip on his shoulder after the derogatory comments made by Bockwinkel in interviews...came in guns blazing bringing the fight to the champ. Bockwinkel was taken aback, and quickly tries to apologize, but Valentine continues his onslaught undeterred. Bodyslams,knuckle sandwiches and vicious kicks are Valentine's rebuttal. Finally the champ manages some resistance by going outside to catch a breath....Valentine reaches through the ropes,and Bockwinkel makes him pay with an eye gouge and a choking on the ropes sending the challenger to his knees. Then one failed pin attempt by Bockwinkel(with a handful of tights),the champ then starts the grueling wear down offensive. SEVERAL suplexes, a Sleeper and some leg drops on the throat, Bockwinkel slaps on the Abdominal Stretch and gets the submission win in 31:12...his hand raised he wipes his brow and flings his sweat on the downed Valentine and leaves the ring.
What another mammoth GNW card here in the great state of Iowa, we now move back to the Gopher State for a huge WORLD TITLE MATCH in Rochester,MN on Jan.14th....hope to see you there!
