TOM ZENK IN

IWA SPRING TOUR OF EUROPE

1988


In April 1988, following his return from Japan and between occasional work for Verne Gagne's AWA, Tom Zenk toured Europe with All Stars Promotions. 

All Stars Promotions was based in Fridley, MN, with ties to AWA, and hired workers, mainly out of Minneapolis, with international visibility through US wrestling broadcasts into Europe (via Sky Sports, German DSR television, etc.) 

The tour was billed as "Superstars of Wrestling - Die Besten Catcher aus USA (the Best of American Wrestling)." 

Originally, Kamala was booked to headline with Tom Zenk in a 'Beauty and the Beast' angle.

But Kamala was unavailable. He was replaced by Afa of the Samoans. Other talent included Derrick Dukes, The Terminators (Riggs and Wolff), Wendy Richter, Bambi, Peggy Lee Leather and Luna. 

The tour was scheduled for 22 matches in 22 towns across Europe between April 13 and May 6, 1988.
