Can the Midnight Rockers avenge their previous loss to Badd Company? Let’s turn it up and find out!

Match 1 for the AWA World tag team titles: the Midnight Rockers (champions) versus Badd Company


Rating: ***½

Summary: Twice Badd Company cheated, but it happened while DeRusha was preoccupied. Unfortunately for the Midnight Rockers, it costs them the titles.

After the match, Jannetty bleeds profusely in the ring while the Vegas faithful chants “BULL-SHIT!” Nelson interviews the Midnight Rockers, and Michaels is PISSED. As Jannetty staggers next to him, Michaels declares “the Midnight Rockers will be on (Badd Company) like stink on (shit).”

This match marked the last AWA televised match for the Midnight Rockers in the AWA. In their final AWA match, they.put over Badd Company on April 15, 1988 in Mason City, Iowa. Thereafter, they returned to the WWF on May 31 in Fresno, CA. While the AWA had lost numerous wrestlers over the last couple of years, the loss of the Midnight Rockers was a tough one that would not heal.

Stay tuned for another AWA special treat!
