Throwback Thursday – Bockwinkel & Zbyszko vs Hennig & Zenk

While watching the WWE Hall of Fame last weekend, I was reminded at just how talented Larry Zbyszko really was. The guy was a killer heel and knew how to work the crowd into a frenzy like few others.

I found this match on YouTube and realized just how great the AWA was during the 80’s. I mean, they had champions in Nick Bockwinkel, Rick Martel, Stan Hansen, Curt Hennig, Jerry Lawler, and Larry Zbyszko. That’s quite the motley crew of great performers.

Here you’ll see Bockwinkel near the end of his career and Zbyszko at the prime of his. Zenk was just starting out and Hennig was a young veteran, showing glimpses of what would eventually make him “Mr. Perfect”.

Enjoy this match from 1985!
