Perfect from the Start

May 2, 1987

Curt Hennig steps out from the shadow of his father — Minnesota wrestling legend Larry “The Axe” Hennig” — during a showdown with AWA World Heavyweight Champion Nick Bockwinkel at AWA’s SuperClash 2. The competitors grapple to a standstill until Hennig levels Bockwinkel with a haymaker, but the knockout comes under scrutiny when interloper Larry Zbyszko spills a roll of dimes in the ring. Nevertheless, the decision stands and Hennig is crowned the new AWA Champion.
