Buddy Rose Face Turn (1983)From Saturday, June 18, 1983....Perhaps the biggest moment in Portland Wrestling history as, after seven years as the most hated wrestler in Portland history, Playboy Buddy Rose turns face! The build up to this was classic as Rose returned to Portland & needed to find a partner. Rip Oliver was also trying to find a new Clan member. Rose & Oliver agreed to help each other find partners. On June 4, 1983, Rose announces that he "outbid" Rip Oliver to bring Dynamite Kid to Portland to be his partner. During their first match as a team on June 11, 1983, Kid turns on Rose. During an interview the next week Oliver, The Assassin & Dynamite Kid attack Rose and beat him bloody. What followed later that night is in this clip.
