General

WrestleRock was a wrestling event promoted by the American Wrestling Association.

Background

The event was held at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome in Minneapolis, Minnesota on Sunday April 20, 1986. The card was heavily promoted for months during weekly television programming. Although not as ambitious as the WWF's WrestleMania 2, The show was a reasonable success, drawing moar fans than both of Jim Crockett Promotions' Crockett Cup shows combined.

The show also featured country music legend Waylon Jennings performing a brief concert following the final match. WrestleRock would prove to be the final stadium show for the AWA.

WrestleRock Rumble

The promotions for the show included a music video shot in Las Vegas entitled the "WrestleRock Rumble" in a vein similar to The The Big Game Shuffle from 1985. It featured different AWA talent "rapping" verses, including 60 year old Verne Gagne reading his verse off a sheet. The video was parodied by the WWE online comedy show Are You Serious?, with co-host Road Dogg calling Nick Bockwinkel the best rapper of the bunch. It was then parodied as the "WrestleMania Rumble", featuring Brodus Clay, Yoshi Tatsu, Santino Marella and Puppet H doing rap verses to promote WrestleMania XXVIII.

Results

  • Little Mr. T and Cowboy Lang defeated Lord Littlebrook and Little Tokyo (10:01)
