'PAY ME AND PIN ME' - AWA BATTLE OF THE CEREALS
A 1-hour commercial sponsored by Kellogg’s. Featuring 4 AWA matches, each wrestler represents a different food product (separated into Kellogg’s and General Mills teams).
"The Hyatt Hotel in Minneapolis is the site of one of the strangest shows in wrestling history. It's Kellogg's (aka the "Good Guys") vs. General Mills (the "Bad Guys")and all the stars are here: Nutra Rockne, Dr. K, Hondo the Honeybee Haymaker, Mr. Oat-portunity, and many more. Also, we get motivational speeches/crazed propaganda from genuine Kellogg's executives. It's pure insanity, folks."
NB - None of the commentariat has yet made the connection between Kellogs, who sponsored this show for their staff and AWA colour commentator, Lee Marshall who gave life to 'Tony the Tiger', mascot for Kellogg's Frosted Flakes cereal. succeeding Thurl Ravenscroft when Ravenscroft died in 2005.
