The Midnight Soldier or Brian Adams? - 1989 - The Use of Profanity Will Not Be Tolerated!

The Midnight Soldier wrestled in Portland Wrestling for a short time in 1989.  He mysteriously appeared a few weeks after Brian Adams had lost a loser leave town match.  Grappler put a $1,000 bounty on the mask. Bounties were very popular in the 80's.  As it turned out, it was Brian Adams all along!  He also used this mask when he was passing out candy at Halloween at his apartment in Milwaukie. Yeah, I knocked on his door.  There weren't stalking laws then!!! 😲

I love the sign next to him, it's very iconic to me.  I always sat on this level and many of my photos are taken right at this same spot.

Northwest Wrestle-Media Magazine Volume 3 - #3 - Full Scans

I loved to go to this cigar store in downtown Portland, whenever I could get my mom to take me.
They had the most wrestling magazines in town.  I would stand there in that stinky store and scan all
of the wrestling magazines to find any mention of the Northwest or any wrestler that I knew from Portland.  There were many trips to that store where I left with nothing.  We had some amazing
wrestling happening here in the 80s, but we were largely ignored by wrestling media.  So, I guess someone here decided to start their own magazine.  I was excited for each issue to come out!

Bart Sawyer Promo Photo

 I picked this photo of Bart up at a Promo table somewhere along the way.  He always seemed to do these 5x7 photos, which was fine with me, because they were a bit cheaper.  This one has discolored over time.  I don't think this photo was taken in Portland.  I don't recall there being a red tag belt.  Am I wrong?  Maybe CWUSA?

Newspaper Clipping - January 12, 1989 Super Extravaganza w/WCW Stars

A couple of months ago I posted the program from this card and I just happened to come across the newspaper ad as well.  Unfortunately, I don't have any photos from that night.  Maybe they didn't come out.  That happened in those days!  I was more of a WWF(versus WCW) fan in those days, but it was still cool seeing these guys in person. My mom didn't make me go to school the next day because we got home so late.  She was always so cool about stuff like that.  I missed A LOT of school without her knowing, but I got good grades, so she probably would have been fine with it.
