 - Adam Lawrence

Howdy from the Lone Star State.  My name is Adam and I am your new GWF correspondent.  Each month I will be bringing you informative news about Global Wrestling Federation and its impact on the pro wrestling world.  So without any further adieu, let's go ringside.

This month, I would like to take you back to August 9-10 1991 and the place is the Global Dome or in other words, the famed Dallas Sportatorium.  A tournament was held to fill all title vacancies and later in the summer, a new North American Heavyweight Champion would be crowned.  With a field wide open of up and coming superstars, veterans and later superstars, it set the tone for some interesting matchups and an even more intriguing final.   

First round matchups: 

The Patriot defeated The Soultaker-The Patriot became very popular in a very short time.  Later, he would go on to do better things in Japan while the Soultaker would later go on to the WWF and become Papa Shango, Kama Mustafa, and the Godfather/Goodfather. 

Axis the Demolisher defeated Terry Garvin-Garvin was really no match here as despite his pops he received from the crowd periodically, he was never above a mid-carder status in many people's eyes. 

Steve Cox defeated Rod Price-Pretty good matchup of two veteran wrestlers.  Steve Cox got the nod and although Rod Price would make himself known in GWF, it remained a mystery to me why they would push someone like Cox over Price.  

Stan Lane defeated Action Jackson-Two more veterans and another good matchup.  Sweet Stan Lane found fame and fortune as one half of the Fabulous Ones and then as a member of the Midnight Express.  Action Jackson was just trying to fit in, something that here in Texas, he has done quite well.  Remarkable athlete but Sweet Stan was just too experienced at this time.
