1987-Part II

"I’m dreaming
Of a White Christmas,
Just like the ones I used to know"

 - Irving Berlin, "White Christmas"

With all due respect to Mr. Berlin and all the great singers who have covered that song, I will never share its sentiments. Cold precipitation is for those who love the seasonal feel, not the lifelong, acclimated-to-60-degree-Christmas-day Texan that I am. We had an ice storm here this week that contained all the holiday cheer of an impacted wisdom tooth.

Why ramble on about weather and the holidays? I needed an intro for the latest edition of UWF on Kayfabe Memories. Thanks for stopping by and welcome back to another installment of my memories of Bill Watts’ Universal Wrestling Federation. I hope that everyone’s holiday season is going well. This time around, we will be covering some of the "second-line stars" that were with the promotion at the start of 1987.

Mid-line stars are crucial for the success of any promotion. These wrestlers are not consistently main-eventers, but they can hold their own and then some if they should be featured at the top of the card. Invariably, these guys have exceptional ring skills, a distinct personality and can adapt to being either a heel or a face. The WWF has wrestlers such as Chris Benoit, Eddy Guerrero, Chris Jericho, William Regal, Bob Holly, and Sean "X-Pac" Waltman who are experienced workers who will flourish in either singles or tag teams, regardless of their placement on the card. WCW has workers like Chavo Guerrero Jr., Hugh Morrus and Lance Storm, all of who can be counted on to deliver solid performances.

In 1987, the UWF had two of these wrestlers. One was "Gentleman" Chris Adams, who came to the promotion with quite an impressive resume. Hailing from England, Adams was a World Champion in Judo as a youth. I became aware of him when he appeared in World Class Championship Wrestling during that organization’s heyday in the early-to-mid 1980s. While initially a face, Adams established himself as a mega-heel when he turned on Mike Von Erich during a tag-team match in 1984.  More...
