Blackjack Brawl was the first and only major live television supercard event produced by Herb Abrams' Universal Wrestling Federation, which took place on September 23, 1994 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada and aired live on SportsChannel America. The event was a successor to UWF's only pay-per-view event Beach Brawl.
Eleven professional wrestling matches were contested on the card. The main event was a singles match for the World Heavyweight Championship, with defending champion Steve Williams defending the title against Sid Vicious. Nine of the matches at the event were championship matches as several new championships were introduced at the event and new champions were crowned including the Americas Championship, the Junior Heavyweight Championship, the Midget World Championship, the MGM Grand Championship and the World Tag Team Championship while the vacant SportsChannel Television Championship and the vacant Women's World Championship were also decided at the event. The two non-title matches at the event were a lumberjack match between Cactus Jack and Jimmy Snuka and a singles match between Samson and The Irish Assassin.
Blackjack Brawl was the last event ever to be produced by UWF. The promotion closed with owner Herb Abrams' death in 1996.

The opening match of the event featured Johnny Ace taking on Dan Spivey for the inaugural Americas Championship. Near the end of the match, Spivey applied a long abdominal stretch on Ace until Ace's valet Missy Hyatt turned on Ace by throwing in the towel for him, thus costing him the match resulting in Spivey winning the Americas Championship.
Next, Mando Guerrero took on Jack Armstrong to crown the inaugural Junior Heavyweight Champion. Near the end of the match, Guerrero missed a moonsault from the top rope, allowing Armstrong to hit a series of elbow drops for the win to win the Junior Heavyweight Championship.
The match was followed by Sunny Beach taking on Dr. Feelgood for the vacant SportsChannel Television Championship. Near the end of the match, Feelgood pulled a rag out of his medical bag with black ink poured on it and then tried to shove the rag into Beach but Beach countered by shoving the rag into Feelgood's face and pinning him to win the SportsChannel Television Championship. Hyatt slapped Beach after the match, allowing Feelgood to attack him with the rag from behind.
Next, Bob Orton, Jr. defended the Southern States Championship against Finland Hellraiser Thor. Near the end of the match, Orton tried to hit a powerbomb to Thor but Thor backdropped him out of the ring with Orton throwing water in Thor's face and dragging him out of the ring and then Orton hit him with the Southern States Championship belt and the match ended in a double disqualification. As a result, Orton retained the title. The two continued to brawl after the match until Herb Abrams handed Thor a chair who tried to hit Orton but Orton countered forcing Thor to retreat.
Next, Little Tokyo took on The Karate Kid for the inaugural Midget World Championship. Near the end of the match, Karate Kid reversed an Irish whip attempt by Tokyo, thus whipping him in the corner and charged at him but Tokyo hit a double throat thrust to Karate Kid to win the Midget World Championship.
Next, Tyler Mane took on Steve Ray for the inaugural MGM Grand Championship, based on the MGM Grand Garden Arena, where the event was taking place. Ray tried to perform a sunset flip on Mane but Mane countered that with a seated senton and grabbed the top rope for leverage, thus pinning Ray to win the MGM Grand Championship.
Next, Masked Confusion (B. Brian Blair and Jim Brunzell) took on The New Powers of Pain (Warlord and Power Warrior) for the inaugural World Tag Team Championship. Near the end of the match, The Power Twins pulled out a twin magic as Power Warrior switched places with his brother David Power but Blair ended up pinning him to win the tag team titles.
The penultimate match of the event was a lumberjack match between Cactus Jack and Jimmy Snuka. The action spilled to the outside where both men brawled with each other and got counted out. The brawling continued and reached the audience where Snuka suplexed Jack into a row of seats.
Main event match
In the main event, Steve Williams defended the UWF World Heavyweight Championship against Sid Vicious. Williams hit a Doctor Bomb to Vicious and covered him for the pinfall but Dan Spivey attacked him, thus causing a disqualification and getting Vicious disqualified. As a result, Williams retained the title via a disqualification.
Blackjack Brawl largely received negative reviews from critics. Arnold Furious of 411Mania rated the event 3 out of 10, considering the event to be "The usual horseshit from UWF" noting that there were "Stupid stipulations, bad booking, nothing matches and titles that don’t mean anything." However, he also noticed some worthwhile moments, stating "The midget match is pretty good and its weird seeing Sid actually wrestling for a while in the main event."
