JERRY BLACKWELL IN AWA disc 4 of 8
Quality: Solid VG with low sound on match #7 and a slightly weaker picture on #6.
Volume 4 (1 XP dvd, Running time approx. 54:00)
One of Jerry Blackwell’s longest running AWA feuds was against three of the AWA’s elder statesmen: Mad Dog Vachon, and The Crusher. Blackwell had injured Vachon and put him out of the AWA for a lengthy period. When he returned, he brought back an old friend to help extract his revenge—Baron Von Raschke.
