    Pacific Coast Wrestling

    Pacific Coast Wrestling show from McArthur Court, Eugene, July 11th Pacific Light Heavyweight Title Match : Chris Candido © vs. Norman Smiley Candido won the match by hitting a flying legdrop on Smiley. Scott Hall & Tom Magee vs. "Mean" Mike Miller & Stan Hansen Gator and the Megaman did their best against the veterans from the Crazy Gang, but Miller and Hansen were out for blood, and Hansen put down Hall with a crushing lariat. Nick Busick vs. Jack Victory The Man from Powerhouse Hill was able to score the three count over "Hollywood" Jack after catching him in a Spinebuster Slam Barry Windham & Ron Simmons vs. The Vice Squad (Jimmy Del Ray & Randy Rose) After what had happened earlier in the show, Windham and Simmons were out to avenge their Brigade brothers. The cunning of the Vice Squad kept them out of their clutches for a while, but eventually Windham and Simmons caught up with them, and scored a convincing victory with a flying double tackle on Del Ray Golden State Tag Team Title Match : The Hart Foundation © vs. Keiichi Yamada & Hiroshi Hase The Hart Foundation won by DQ after Badd Company , seeking revenge for the night before, raced out to the ring to attack them. Brian Pillman & Owen Hart vs. Bob Orton & Joel Deaton Pillman brought his Snowbirds partner Owen Hart into his feud with Bob Orton. Pillman got the win by pinning Deaton with a slingshot sunset flip California Title Match : Tracy Smothers © vs. Vic Steamboat After several impressive recent outings, the younger Steamboat brother earned himself a shot at Smothers' California Title, and he certainly was looking to make the most of it. Smothers was on the defensive for much of this match, and after a long battle, went to underhanded tactics to defend his title. As Steamboat was working over his leg, Smothers grabbled a fistful of tights to get a roll up and hold him down for the one two three.

    Mid-South Wrestling

    I agree with AD, something about Smirnoff makes him fun to write for. I can't think of a better vigilante than Dr. Death. Hayes could be in serious trouble. Alaskan Headhunters make a dominating debut! Watts is laying down the law tonight. I wonder how Ladd and Adnan are going to get out of these stipulations. I really want to see Reed get 5 minutes with Adnan LOL. Looks like Precious has another admirer. Tatum better watch himself. Mike George puts down Iron Mike as he gets ready for Bart. The Roop/Norvel feud goes to another chapter. The masked Yankee strikes again. He's certainly making large enemies. Luckily Brody makes the save. Bad News vs. Brody is going to be epic. That Shreveport card is loaded!

    Pacific Coast Wrestling

    Pacific Coast Wrestling show from the Portland Memorial Coliseum , Portland , on ESPN / TSN Pacific Super Cards, July 10th Brickhouse Brown, Scott Hall & Tom Magee vs. Chavo, Mando & Hector Guerrero The younger members of the Brigade had a long, intense struggle against the veteran Guerreros, and it looked like it would go to the full 20 minute time limit draw. But within the last 30 seconds of the time limit, Hall was able to catch Hector with the Gator Breaker (fallaway slam) and score a hard fought pinfall. The Masked Avenger vs. Big Bubba Rogers The Avenger had changed up his gear somewhat for this match, going from all red gear and mask to red gear with black trim. These two big mastodons dropped some heavy bombs on each other, with neither man looking like they were going to give in. But little by little, it looked like the masked man started to chip away at Big Bubba. Too much so for Jim Cornette, who took advantage of the ref being knocked down to enter the ring and slug the Avenger across the back with his tennis racquet. It seemed to have all the impact of a mosquito bit on the Avenger, who whirled around and grabbed Cornette by the throat. Cornette sputtered and panicked for a bit, but soon the Midnight Express charged in to his rescue, and all of his men ganged up on the Avenger. Luckily for the Avenger, Leo Burke and Black Gold charged into the ring and scattered the Express to the four winds. Dan Severn & Jeff Jarrett vs. The Vice Squad (Jimmy Del Ray & Randy Rose) PCW's oddest couple had a tough battle against the former Pacific Tag Champs, but Jarrett countered an attempted DDT by Rose with an inside cradle and held him down for the one two three. Severn rushed into the ring and he and Jarrett celebrated their biggest victory yet as the fans cheered. Pacific Television Title Match : Bam Bam Bigelow © vs. Chris Adams Another war between these two heated rivals which Adams won by countout after he was able to Superkick Bigelow off the ring apron. Eddie Gilbert & Vic Steamboat vs. The Great Muta & Mr. Hito A furious encounter where Gilbert and Muta beat each other bloody throughout the match. It wound up coming down to Steamboat hitting a flying cross body press to pin Hito. Gilbert and Muta kept going at it long after the end of the match, with their partners and managers having to pull them away from each other. Pacific Tag Team Title Match : The Midnight Express © vs. Badd Company Badd Company gave the champs a run for their money, but when the Hart Foundation came down to ringside, they tripped Tanaka coming off the ropes, and the Express capitalized with a double clothesline for the ill gotten win. 10 Man Tag Team Match : Jim Duggan, Dave Taylor, Tony St. Clair & British Steel (Steven Regal & Robbie Brookside) vs. Buddy Rose, Ed Wiskowski, David Finlay & The Dog Pound (Rick Steiner & Brian Knobbs) As one might imagine, this was a crazy match, with Finlay and St. Clair going after each other any chance they got. It was Duggan who got the pinfall after hitting the Three Point Clothesline on Knobbs, but you just know he would have preferred to get it on Dusty Rhodes.

    AWA Major League Wrestling

    First for the TV show! Highlight for me was George Wells and the stock tips from Morrow. Love this angle and you do an awesome job of keeping it going while changing the pieces to keep it hot! Valiant and the explanation of the cigar was CLASSIC! Nice Larry Z interview... you spudheads.... SPOT ON Nice idea putting Rheingans and Kazmaier together Man... I thought Ox was scary before he was mad.... NOW HE IS A TERROR Great main event... I like how Lawler is still the Man even though it is the AWA and not Memphis. I think this is very realistic and wish he had really ventured out in the ;ate 70's and early 80's ON TO MILWAUKEE I bet Flowers vs Garvin was one stiff match. El Canek is continuing his build. I know little of his career but was told by on old friend from NWAR that he was huge!! WOW... Wahoo with a clean win over Bock! This is huge even though it was in his speciality. No matter how often we see Lawler and Idol or Lawler and Dundee, it never gets old. I most places when a title changes hands, it is time to move on. With these 3, it could change hands twice a week and still be a great event. Great job in the bout for the titlle. Steamboat is one of the best in settling feuds. He might need to reach down deep here as Ox might be the deciding factor.

    First for the TV show... Liked seeing the SPC together. Cocoa and Shaska is a bout I could see going either way. Really liked the Slick interview. ... Stack a lack!! Looking forward to working with you and Gene again. It was awesome doing the Bash. Jimmy Jack was fuming! Akbar and Sullivan means trouble for everyone else! To the Sports Arena: I might have said this beofre but I think you hit on something with Rufus in the opener. Pride is really getting a shot here in his feud with Sullivan. He better be careful what he asks for. HUGE win for the Brotherhood OMG is a MONSTER. Not sure Kendell Windham can slow him down one bit! Jimmy Jack got Pearl Harbored! I bet their will be revenge Great main event

    Apparently, Hangman's wife is due around All Out, so this is basically paternity leave I am guessing. They have to give him a storyline reason for not being there though
  13. Ryan Faulconer

    All Elite Wrestling

    How can Dave not see the booking for the trees when it comes to Page challenging at All Out? The storylines in AEW are about to take a turn for the stupid if Dave’s idea is followed through on. I have no gripes with the WON or Meltzer…beyond his formatting and grammar. He isn’t the evil genius intent on stealing everyone’s clicks or whatever his vocal critics accuse him with. He should really stick with the facts or his history pieces that were always the highlight when I subbed. His star ratings or “takes” hot or otherwise, have been hit or miss for almost twenty years now. He used to be the unquestionable leader in wrestling journalism. After this past week with Danielson and Punk stories all over the net. Meltzer does seem a bit behind the curve here…possibly. I hate that he sits on news until often the booking lines up with the information. He will barely break a story that he could have broken long before he eventually does. I’m fairly certain Dave said that he knew Danielson had signed with AEW way back in May. That is so good to hear, Mr. Journalist Man. When were you planning on sharing it with the rest of the class? I reckon he would eventually write on September 22 from Arthur Ashe Stadium… ”It is expected that Bryan Danielson (Daniel Bryan in WWE) will make his long awaited much anticipated AEW debut tonight…in a match with Orange Cassidy to introduce him to this audience. Attendance is seriously stimulating me sexually right now. It is incredible…oh yeah, 2X,XXX paid for a new erec…er, record for AEW events. Time to ask Kenny for a raise!” - I took some liberties with Meltzer’s hypothetical “update” at Grand Slam. He probably wouldn’t ask for a raise directly - in an article in his WON. You get the gist of it I hope.

    Wonder Women Wrestling

    Glamour Girls kick things off with a nice win. I think we have title contenders. I've really enjoyed the Mitchell/Pardue feud. This match was hard hitting and brutal. Of course we know how these types of matches play out for the babyfaces. Mitchell gets the win and says she's done but Pardue might have other plans. Richter is holding gold again! Medusa is pissed. I like where this is going. Is there anybody hotter in WWW than Moretti? That battle royal win catapults her to an even higher level. Combs better be on high alert. Solid, clean and technical world title match. Combs retains but Misty can hold her head high. Awesome show!

    It's so great seeing the SPC together again! I would love to see them get a title run. You do an outstanding job with continuity. Slick has a lot to say and the Devil's Duo back it all up. I'm all for another joint NWA card. WSW gets its long awaited supershow. Labor Day can't come soon enough. Al Perez is a great hand to have here. Chicky continues to get some serious heat. Always loved a good masked man surprise. The fans blow the roof off the place as JJF pulls one over on Chicky. Will things get settled in a street fight? Man, that's going to be a fight. Akbar in cahoots with Sullivan? Wow! Watch out WSW! Wild Texas brawl to end the show. Slater is going to have an amazing run here.
  17. They had one real good match at New Years Revolution 2006 and other than that I literally can't remember any singles matches between them over those 20 years.
  18. Boss Rock

    All Elite Wrestling

    https://itrwrestling.com/news/hangman-page-reportedly-not-appearing-at-all-out/ Per Meltzer, Page isn't even going to be at All Out. Unless Punk is actually going to be Kenny's opponent, the crowd is likely turning hard on the title match.
  19. Den Scorpio

    AWA Major League Wrestling

    This Milwaukee card had PPV vibes, no cap! Canek & Cobra get the eye-catching win over the Russians in spectacular fashion. Crews ends Garea with that high knee from the heavens. Wrecking Machine with the big win. Again, these finishes with these finishers surely put exclamation points on these battles. Ronnie lays out Flowers with a KO he clearly deserved for that lack of focus! Wahoo gets his decisive win against a heated foe. "Satisfying" was the perfect word for this. Talk about wanting to see 2 heels get their comeuppance. This voluntary count-out to hang on to the straps is a real heat-builder. Speaking of heat -- this is a pressure cooker with Dundee and King. What a way to see this end. Idol & Dundee should leave town quickly. Steamboat getting left laying with a death blow like that feels very much like a longer rivalry is afoot. Haynes is a really intriguing spoil for Steamboat, and I'd love to see more. Now THIS is a night out in a Milwaukee!

    Continental Championship Wrestling

    Suspensions and fines are running wild. I hope Nikita spends the next 30 days training because Magnum might have his number at Beach Brawl. Nothing like a good cowboy feud. Highwaymen and Hangmen are going to give the fans some great brawls. What a great angle. The re debut of Lucious. I can only imagine. Gordon's reactions crack me up. Scott Armstrong has his sights set on the Jr. title. Idk, Regal's been on a hot streak and has Dark Journey in his corner. I was looking forward to Mulligan's explanation and I have to say, just like Ernie Ladd, he made some sense LOL. Mulligan, Olympia and Bass along with RPG is one solid heel stable. Brad and Fujinami is going to be a classic. Whoever wins, defiantly deserves that title shot. The next segment does a great job of making the tag titles feel special. I love the heel team interactions. Well done. I need to pull the trigger on some heel vs. heel matches. Hangmen and Highwaymen waste no time in getting in more heat. Man, the tag team division is stacked! The cage match stipulations are set and Budro returns! So much to process. After that promo, Buddy seems pretty damn sincere. So much riding on that cage match. A lot of fans are going to pay to see that. Wild brawl to end the show and sell more tickets. Week after week, continental remains a red hot territory.

    Comments that don't warrant a thread - Part 4

    There's a track that's been played dozens of times per judo event in the Olympics and it sounds like it is ripped straight from one of the AKI games and I love it. Need to find it out what it is.

    The masked duo show their continuity ahead of their meeting with Larry Z & his mystery partner. Couple of nice wins for the Ace & the Wrecking Machine. I love the visual of Flowers jawing with the fans only to turn around & get ko'd. Wahoo gets his revenge in the Strap match. Henning & Adias bolt like proper chickenshit heels. Between Dundee costing Lawler the National Title & Ox & Hayes leaving Steamboat laying then posing with the title, it's not surprising you damn near had a riot. Wild night in Milwaukee!

    AWA Major League Wrestling

    AWA @ The Milwaukee Auditorium 7-31-86 El Canek and The Cobra defeated Soviet Steel- The Russians show how tough they are but in the end, Canek hits a gorilla press drop on Markoff and Cobra follows with a senton for the win. "The Ace" Art Crews defeated Tony Garea with a kneedrop from the top rope. "The Wrecking Machine" Richard Charland w/Gini Brito Jr. defeated Steve O with an inverted piledriver "Rugged" Ron Garvin defeated "Diamond" Timothy Flowers- Flowers got to caught up antagonizing the fans that when he turned around, Garvin nailed him with a KO punch for the win. Indian Strap Match Chief Wahoo McDaniel vs. Nick Bockwinkle These guys give the fans a solid 15 minute fight. Wahoo starts strong and has Bock bleeding quick but can't drag him to all 4 corners. Bock comes back and is ruthless. Before long, Wahoo is bleeding. Bock starts to work over Wahoo's bad knee and is able to drag Wahoo to 3 corners but Wahoo breaks the momentum. Wahoo gets fired up and takes it to Bock. Wahoo uses the strap and whips the hell out of Bock. Bock's back is beet red and he's on the verge of passing out. Wahoo ties up Bock's hands and drags him to all 4 corners to get a very satisfying win. AWA World Tag Team Title Bout The Awesome Twosome (C) vs. The Golden Boys The champs obviously made a big mistake by underestimating the challengers. The first few minutes is all Golden Boys as they have the champs bumping all over the ring. The Awesome Twosome are far from awesome tonight and can't get any solid momentum. At the 10 minute mark, the Golden Boys clothesline Hennig and Adias over the top rope. The dazed champs stagger around, grab their titles and just walk away. The fans boo as the Ref counts them out. Golden Boys can't believe it as they get the underwhelming c.o. win. Awesome Twosome remain world tag champs. AWA National Title Bout "The Universal Heartthrob" Austin Idol (C) vs. Jerry "The King" Lawler This one's a good one. Things get going quick with a good punch exchange. Lawler gets the upper hand, swings Idol to the ropes and back drops him. Idol staggers up and Lawler puts him down with a punch. Lawler continues to work Idol over and gets several near falls. Idol turns things around with a mule kick. Now it's Idol's turn as he controls things for the next few minutes. Idol executes a backbreaker and follows with a vertical suplex but only gets a 2 count. The fans fire Lawler up. Both men have another exchange. Lawler starts to get the upper hand and the strap goes down. The fans go wild as Lawler hammers away on Idol, swings him to the ropes and puts him down with a back elbow smash. Idol staggers up and Lawler clamps on the sleeper! Idol's arms are flailing and he hits the Ref. The Ref goes down. Lawler releases the sleeper and scoop slams Idol. Lawler goes to the top rope and crashes down with a flying fist drop but the Ref is still out. Thundering boos as SUPERSTAR BILL DUNDEE runs out in street clothes, goes to the top rope and crashes down on Lawler with a forearm drop. Dundee stomps away on Lawler, hoists him up and piledrives him down. Dundee hoists Lawler up again and gives him another piledriver. Idol staggers up and starts stomping away on Lawler. Now both Dundee and Idol are taking it to Lawler. A satisfied Dundee goes and wakes up the Ref, then slides out of the ring. Idol clamps on the Las Vegas Leglock. Lawler is already unconscious as Idol wrenches away. The Ref signals for the bell. BOOOOOO! Idol is declared the winner. Dundee celebrates on the outside as Idol holds up his National title. Dundee is back, here we go again. AWA World Title Bout Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat (C) vs. Billy Jack Haynes w/Ox Baker Things start slow as Billy uses his strength to work over Steamboat with a headlock. Billy grinds it on as Ox nods in approval. Steamboat pumps his fist as the fans cheer him on. Steamboat hoists Billy up and back suplexes his way out of the headlock. Steamboat rubs his neck and shakes the cobwebs. Both men rise, Billy nails Steamboat with a forearm blast, swings him to the ropes but misses a clothesline, Steamboat swings back and hits a flying press 1..2..Billy kicks out. Steamboat picks up Billy and slams him down, then goes to the top rope. Billy staggers up as Steamboat nails him with a brain chop 1..2..kick out. Steamboat hoists Billy up and executes a delayed vertical suplex, Steamboat swings off the ropes and hits a jumping knee drop 1..2..kick out. Steamboat gets up, swings off the ropes but Ox trips him. Steamboat staggers, turns around and heads towards Ox. The Ref and Steamboat have words with Ox. Billy staggers up, runs over and sends Steamboat through the ropes with a flying knee to the back. Billy distracts the Ref as Ox picks up Steamboat, slams his head on the apron, then hurls him back in the ring. Billy swings Steamboat to the ropes and just about takes his head off with a vicious clothesline 1..2..kick out. Billy swings Steamboat into the corner and charges in with a running shoulder thrust. Billy grabs the ropes and delivers several more shoulder thrusts. Billy hoists Steamboat up on the turnbuckles. Billy hops up and delivers a superplex! Billy covers 1..2..Steamboat barley lifts his shoulder as the crowd gasps. Ox gets on the apron and berates the Ref. Billy joins in as both men yell at the Ref saying that was a 3 count. Steamboat rolls over and uses the ropes to help himself up. He regroups, runs over and dropkicks Billy into Ox! Ox goes flying off the apron as Steamboat rolls Billy up 1..2..Billy is just able to kick out. Steamboat picks up Billy and swings him to the ropes but Billy reverses it, Steamboat swings back and both men just collide and go down. Both men stagger up and have a furious exchange! They just keep pounding away on each other. The Ref tries to break it up but both men push him down. The Ref hops up and again tries to break them up but again gets pushed down. The Ref has no choice but to signal for the bell and DQ both men. The bell is ringing but the fists keep flying. Ox runs in the ring and nails Steamboat from behind. Billy grabs Steamboat and gives him a short arm clothesline. Billy picks up Steamboat and clamps on the full nelson! The Ref tries to stop it but Ox grabs him and hurls him out of the ring. Billy wrenches away as he spins Steamboat around like a rag doll. Billy tosses Steamboat across the ring. Steamboat is lying under the ropes as Billy runs over and baseball slides him out of the ring. Billy goes to the outside, picks up Steamboat and once again clamps on the full nelson! Ox grabs the world title and holds it up as Billy continues to wrench away with the full nelson. Billy runs with Steamboat and rams him face first into the steel post. Steamboat is down and bleeding. Ox hands Billy the title. The fans are in riot mode as Billy raises the title. Official ruling- A Double DQ

    Is the empire crumbling before our eyes?

    They definitely should have tried to use his talents in a better way. For whatever reason, he has a very vocal, very passionate fanbase, and they loved everything he did. Thing is, I don't know if he can be utilized effectively in any other promotion. His brand of wrestling is very cinematic, with a lot of focus on production, grand entrances, etc. I know Broken Matt Hardy was a thing, but I cannot imagine his gimmick working in Impact and whatever budget they have

And in our massive main event, making his television debut "The Unpredictable" Dick Slater *Huge pop* will go one with "Killer" Tim Brooks with Skandar Akbar in his corner. Also later I'll have a major announcement about future plans of WSW and the NWA. But before all that let's get down to ring for our first match and another television debut, "The Polynesian Prince" Siva Afi! Match 1 "The Polynesian Prince" Siva Afi w/Cocoa Samoa defeats The Midnight Stalker (Tyree Pride in a mask) with a jumping headbutt The SPC makes their way to the interview area. Stack: Very impressive. Siva Afi for the fans at home who don't know you what brings you to Western States & what's your relationship with Cocoa Samoa? Siva: Well first of all Steve Stack I want to thank everyone for the warm welcome I've received so far and as for your questions they essentially have the same answer. Ya see before the AWA excisted in its current form it was the USWA & it was in the USWA that I met Cocoa Samoa & through our shared culture & views on professional wrestling we came together as a tag team, The South Pacific Connection. We went to war together many times and while we didn't always win we always had each other's backs. We kept touch after Cocoa decided to pursue opportunities elsewhere and the day he signed with Western States he called me to celebrate. But as I'm tuning it to watch he does what do I see? Him & his friends in the Tribal Nation being assaulted by a band of lunatics calling themselves Dungeon of Doom *Boos* well when the time came to part ways with the AWA i knew excactly where I was needed. I packed my bags caught the first plane to Texas and signed on the dotted line. The South Pacific Connection is back & i intend to aide my brother Cocoa & his friends against anyone who thinks they can mess with'em! Stack: Well Cocoa it's a great time to have some backup because after weeks of waiting next week you get your shot, you one-on-one with Shaska Whatley for the Western States Television Championship. Cocoa: That's right Steve and I know that dancing clown Slick will be there to help his man like he does every match but with my brother Siva, The Tribal Nation & these fans behind me i will become the next Western States Television Champion! The SPC leave to a rousing ovation. Commercial break-Steve Stack runs down the Western States live events for this coming week We return to Steve Stack joined by The Devil's Duo & Slick. Stack: Welcome back fans as you can see I'm being joined by Slick & his team the Devil's Duo. Slick it seems your "main man" Shaska Whatley has quite the challenge in store for him next week. Slick: Ow come off it Stack-a-lack. Do you or any of these whisky swilling John Wayne wanna be's think that coconut eater who can't even figure out how to put on a pair of wrestling boots has a chance of beating the "Black Bullet" Nah-nah baby. Ya see the TV Title is just the beginning for Black Diamond Talent Agency, the best is yet to come & if for some unfamidable reason you doubt the Slickster watch what my boys do to these Jive fools in the ring Match 2 The Devil's Duo w/Slick defeat Skylar Odell & Terrell Samuel with the Devil's Bargin Commercial Stack: Ladies and gentlemen I mentioned earlier that I had a announcement regarding future plans for WSW and the NWA. First following the success of the Great American Bash the NWA Board of Directors alongside the various promoters have agreed to hold at least one more joint Supershow before the end of the year. The details are still being negotiated. But what can be said for certain is this, on Labor Day Monday September 6th Western States Wrestling will hold the Labor Day Spectacular. This event will take place at the Sports Arena here in Amarillo Texas and shall be broadcast on local affiliates throughout the Western States territory. In order to ensure the athletes are in fighting shape there will be no episode of WSW or Sports Arena show on Sunday September 5th. In order to ensure WSW's first solo Supershow is as great as it can possibly be Commissioner Dusek is currently negotiating to have all the major NWA World titles defended. Western States Wrestling is proud to work with our sister promotions in the National Wrestling Alliance and will continue to do so in order to present the best possible product not just for fans of WSW but for all NWA territories. I know that's a lot to take in folks so while we process it let's enjoy our next match. Match 3 "The Latin Heartthrob" Al Perez defeats Nathan Homewood with the bridging German Suplex Commercial We return to Steve Stack joined by Chicky Starr Stack: Folks my guest at this time is Chicky Starr and sir I'll be frank, I'm amazed you weren't suspended for your heinous action at the Great American Bash. What possessed you to stick a lit cigar into another man's eyes? Starr: Man's eye? Strange i meant to put it in Jimmy Jack Funk's eye. *Thunderous boos* I kid of course, it's quite simple really so much so that even a Funk could understand. That Cabron cost me the chance to become the first Western States Television Champion all I did was return the favor. I can't imagine why everyone's so upset it's not like anything of value was damaged after all. Just a Funk & lord knows wrestling doesn't need another of those running around. Starr heads to the ring to deafening boos. Match 4 Chicky Starr vs The Lone Wolf never got started as Wolf pounced on Starr as he was getting into the ring. He pounded on Starr before throwing him to the floor before standing center ring & tearing his mask off to reveal...JIMMY JACK FUNK! FUNK CLIMBS THE ROPES AND DIVES ONTO STARR ON THE FLOOR! SECURITY IS TRYING TO PULL FUNK OFF STARR AS THE FANS ARE GOING CRAZY! STARR USES THE TIME FUNK IS FIGHTING OFF SECURITY TO SCURRY TO THE BACK! Funk sprints to the interview area and grabs Stacks mic. JJ: CHICKY STARR YOU CAN RUN BOY BUT YOU CAN'T HIDE! I'VE TALKED IT OUT WITH COMMISSIONER DUSEK AND AT THE SPORTS ARENA TODAY IT'S YOU AND ME IN A AMARILLO STREET FIGHT! Funk slams the mic on the table and rushes to the back in hot pursuit. Stack: Frankly folks i'm not sure Chicky Starr will make it to the Sports Arena. Let's take our final commercial break to let things settle & when we come back it's the television debut of Dick Slater! Commercial break-Steve Stack runs down the card for the Sports Arena later today Rufus "Freight Train" Jones vs The Midnight Stalker Sunny War Cloud & The South Pacific Connection vs Black Diamond Talent Agency w/Slick "The Haitian Sensation" Tyree Pride vs "Wild Tiger" Kim Duk w/Tojo Yamamoto "The Latin Heartthrob" Al Perez vs Jason the Terrible w/"Taskmaster" Kevin Sullivan The Fort Bragg Brotherhood vs The Super Destroyers One Man Gang w/"General" Skandar Akbar vs "Dirty" Dutch Mantell Amarillo Street Fight Jimmy Jack Funk vs Chicky Starr The Funk Brothers & "The Unpredictable" Dick Slater vs Zaibatsu (Western States Heavyweight Champion Jumbo Tsuruta,Kendo Nagasaki & Mr Pogo) Bell time 3pm tickets still available Before the main event Skandar Akbar barges into the interview area and takes the mic Akbar: I just want all the Western States fans waiting to hear that corrupt,incompetent bootlicker Frank Dusek strip the Moondogs of the Western States Tag Team Titles & fire Kevin Sullivan than I've got great news for you. While I was paying a 10k fine I was unjustly levied I took the liberty of paying Sullivan's fine while I was at it. So don't worry folks you'll be watching Sullivan and the rest of Dungeon of Doom massacre your heroes for a long time to come. Hahaha Match 5 Main event "The Unpredictable" Dick Slater defeats "Killer" Tim Brooks w/"General " Skandar Akbar by dq when the rest of Devastation Inc stormed the ring & attacked Slater while he had Brooks in the Figure Four. A brief 3-1 beat down ensued until Dutch Mantell & The Long Riders arrived. The show goes off the air with all 8 men brawling while security try to separate them.

    Is the empire crumbling before our eyes?

    ^ And once again someone has taken my rambling and absolutely nailed what I was (failing) to say succinctly. And just because its my nature to overdo things, I'll just add, I'm not a Wyatt stan. I just think that he clearly has his fans and, on some nights, those fans were the loudest portion of the crowd. Whether it was everyone doing the firefly thing with their phones or, at SummerSlam a couple years back chanting "This Is Awesome" at his entrance, or singing "He's Got The Whole World In His Hands" at WrestleMania whatever...Bray absolutely had his moments of feeling like a special character in a company with lots and lots of forgettable, interchangeable CAWs. Granted, one could just as easily point to some of the awful, awful segments and feuds and booking too, but its a credit to Wyatt that, even as it became increasingly clear that the gimmick could only last a couple weeks here and there before Vince would zap it of whatever made it work (leading to yet another fan backlash), there was Bray, coming back every couple of months and getting over again.

    Is the empire crumbling before our eyes?

    Brother @DMJ highlighted one of the major problems with the Fiend: there was no consistency to his power level. Sometimes he no-sold a million curb stomps, other times he worked evenly with Daniel Bryan or got squashed by Goldberg. There was no rhyme or reason to any of it beyond what the particular match called for. He was a walking deus ex machina whose very existence made a mockery of the idea of matches and programs having real consequences.
