 - Charles Laffere


Chris Adams, former UWF Tag Team title co-holder, died on October 7, 2001. He was shot in the early morning hours in Waxahachie, TX following a fight with a former roommate. Adams was 46. An excellent feature on Adams’ life can be found at here

As an impromptu duo, Adams and Terry Taylor won the UWF Tag Team Title Tournament in Fort Worth, TX on February 7, 1987. They were champions for two months before losing the straps to Sting and Rick Steiner in Atlanta on April 12, 1987. Ironically, the same two teams met the night before at the Superblast at the Superdome with the match being the best on the card by far. Adams and Taylor split as a team soon thereafter, with Adams assuming the role of the face and Taylor as the heel. They had a memorable feud: however, Adams suffered nerve damage in his back during one of their matches and was affected by the injury for the rest of his career.

I devoted a previous installment to a brief synopsis of the careers of Chris Adams and Terry Taylor. It can be found at in my UWF #6 . Bill Watts valued Adams for his good reason: he always gave his best when wrestling. Rest in peace, Chris.

“Brothers here I stand
Spread my wings and take command
The sky he justly planned
The boy become a man
After all this time
I tell myself that
I'm not just wasting time
Oh you know I'm not that way inclined
Brothers if you hear
Raise your flags and make it clear
There is more to fear
If we wait for another year
After all this time
I tell myself that
I'm just passing through time”

Thin Lizzy, “Fight or Fall.”

Hello, and welcome back to the UWF corner of Kayfabe Memories. My name is Charles Laffere, and this month we will be examining the Freebirds role in the promotion’s hot feud during the spring of 1987. With the face side of the UWF depleted by the loss of Jim Duggan and Ted DiBiase to the WWF within a two month period, Bill Watts and company focused on a heel vs. heel feud between the ‘Birds and Devastation, Inc.  More...
