View Full Version : YOUR Favorite World Champion - AWA

03-20-2007, 11:52 PM
Alrighty, here is a choice of AWA Champions.

That means we covered WWF/WWE, WCW, NWA/TNA, ECW and AWA.

Basically all of the "major" promotions. In the very near future I will be doing something special that will add to this as well, but for now, place your vote for YOUR Favorite AWA Heavyweight Champion.

Poll coming right now.

Don't forget that the WWF/WWE thread will be up at the same time, so keep an eye out for it and be sure to vote on that one as well.

I myself voted for Nick Bockwinkel.

Bock represented AWA with class and as a true legend. Whenever the AWA is mentioned, of course Verne is mentioned, but moreso [and usually right away in my experiences] Bockwinkel is brought up. He's always associated.

Verne was a good champion too, I just didn't vote him due to his situation in the company, etc. and the fact that I always like Bockwinkel more, but that's just me. Corino gets a mention as well.

03-21-2007, 12:23 AM
Stan Hansen though I did want to go Curt Hennig.

I am shocked here.

I thought for sure Eric Priest would've been up like 20-0 right now.

Never really knew that Henning until long after the AWA was defunct before its revival that he was their World Champion. :$ I was very surprised. However, I voted for Bockwinkel too.

Most people never knew Lawler was involved with them.

AWA in their later years, and since the revival frankly, has not been what it used to be. It would seem to me that at some point the AWA brand will make a disappearance and not return.

BTW, we'll have a new AWA Champion sometime this year - as Corino is set to retire this December, meaning that opens up the Championship for taking.

Never heard of it.

Evan Karagias was AWA champ?

03-21-2007, 11:14 PM
Yup, sadly - he and other jobbers have held their gold.

They've made some serious mistakes with the Title.

The last real credible guy before Steve was my man KKB.

ALRIGHTY - voting for the AWA Champion is CLOSED.

And somebody voted for him, lol.

I didn't think he was all that bad, but certainly not gold material. Not at that level anyway.

It was between Corino and Hennig. Had to go Hennig.
