Fight Theater: Magnum T.A. vs. Tully Blanchard

This is one of the most brutal matches from one of the biggest rivalries from the NWA. Magnum T.A. challenges Tully Blanchard for the United States title in a steel cage I Quit Match.

This match is great for several reasons. It was bloody – a trait of many NWA matches – and it had good storytelling. It featured one of the most unique – and perhaps barbaric – finishes in wrestling history. It also cemented both Blanchard and Magnum as two of the top guys in the NWA.

While both Blanchard and Magnum were rivals during their NWA days, they’re actually friends in real life.
