Default Which US Wrestling promotion was this ?

There was an attempt in the early 90's to start an american promotion where matches were fought under rules quite similar to how British matches were fought (up until the 90s when the style was americanised ironicy). The matches were fought with rounds and more rules like no jumping moves or hitting a man when he's down. The only two names i know were involved were Tom Zenk and Sgt Slaughter. The promotion didn't last long.

No not AWA. Some other names Tito Santana was in there so was Too Cold Scorpio, Chris Adams, The Warlord. It was not AWA.

The best I can figure is you're talking American Wrestling Association, but I don't think they ever had Lancashire "World Of Sports" type rules at any given time, although I could be wrong. AWA was part of the NWA for a majority of their successful run, and the NWA's known for more exhibition-type rules, like DQ's from jumping off of the top rope or for throwing your opponent outside of the ring over the top rope, but I think AWA sustained those old school rules until their bitter end.

I hope that helps some, but as far as I can tell, I have no idea what you're talking about and will probably star this so I can follow just in case someone else does answer.
