    Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling (v2)

    Great American Bash, 7/6/85, American Legion Memorial Stadium in Charlotte PRELIMINARY MATCH Phil LaFleur & The Nightmares vs. The Samoans (Kokina, Fatu & Samu) (w/ Sir Oliver Humperdink) LaFleur and the masked men try to push the pace with their speed and high flying, but the tide turns once Kokina gets tagged into the march. The massive Kokina plows through his three opponents like a giant Samoan wrecking ball. After laying waste single handed, he grabs the Nightmares and stacks them like cordwood, then climbs to the middle rope and delivers a falling elbow smash. That's at least 500 pounds! Kokina pins both Nightmares, who need medical attention while the Samoans celebrate. WIN: The Samoans After the national anthem and a flyover by military jets, we're off to the main card! MATCH #1 The Rockers vs. The Moondogs (w/ Lord Adrian Street & Ms. Linda) This red-hot tag team rivalry kicks off the main card and the stadium crowd is fully enraptured. It's the speed and technique of the Rockers, Shawn and Marty, against the power and viciousness of the Moondogs, Spot and Rex. Shawn gets isolated by the Moondogs and pummeled for several minutes but keeps fighting. Finally he makes the tag to Marty who comes in like a house afire! Things break down soon after that, with all four men brawling in the ring. As the referee tries to break up Shawn and Spot, Rex has Marty's arms hooked and Street climbs up on the apron. Street throws a handful of powder... but Marty ducks and the powder goes in Rex's face instead! Marty decks Street with a roundhouse right! Now both Rockers with thrust kicks to the jaw of Rex, and he drops! Referee trying to get Shawn out of the ring... and Spot has that massive bone! He BLASTS Marty in the head with it, and drapes Rex over Marty's carcass. Not like this! 1! 2! 3! WIN: Moondogs MATCH #2 MACW TV Title Match Lex Luger defends vs. Tom Prichard A handshake of respect between these two fan favorites. Luger is the bigger and stronger man, but Prichard goes after the left shoulder of Luger, trying to even the odds that way... the strategy takes away some of Luger's power, as he can't hoist Prichard for the Human Torture Rack! Prichard counters with a sleeper, slowly wearing down Luger. He releases it and goes for his thrust kick but Luger side steps it and clocks Prichard with a clothesline to the back of the head! Prichard drops like he's been shot, and Luger makes the cover for the pin and the win. WIN: Lex Luger After the match, Luger helps Prichard to his feet and they shake hands again. MATCH #3 Johnny Weaver & Mr. Wrestling II vs. Outlaw Ron Bass & Dutch Mantell The crowd is firmly behind the two veterans for this one, but Bass and Mantell jump Weaver and II before the bell. The masked man gets sent hard into the ringpost and that leaves Weaver basically fighting a handicap match. On a couple of occasions, Weaver battles to where he could make the tag but II is nowhere in sight. Finally, II makes his way up to the corner. Weaver ducks a double clothesline and makes a leaping tag to the masked man! Mr. Wrestling II comes in and starts decking both Bass and Mantell! He isolates Bass, and starts delivering 10 punches in the corner. Weaver intercepts Mantell and starts doing the same in the opposite corner! Double Irish whip, but the rulebreakers reverse it and Weaver and II smash into one another. Mantell tosses Weaver out of the ring, grabs II and motions to Bass. Bass goes for a running clothesline, II with a standing switch and shoves Mantell into Bass on the run! They crack heads! II catches Mantell with a back suplex, as Weaver trips Bass. As Bass starts to rise, II drills him with the knee lift and covers for the three count! WIN: Johnny Weaver & Mr. Wrestling II Bass and Mantell bicker after the match. Bass goes to leave and Mantell clobbers him from behind, then gives him a few lashes with Shoo Baby! MATCH #4 Anything Goes, Loser Leaves Town Duke Myers vs. Kerry Brown Given the stakes, this match only can end by pin or submission. Former partners in Stampede Rush. Former best friends. Both former TV champions in Mid-Atlantic. For one of them, this is their final match. Brown has taken on a more rugged brawling style as of late and this match is a fight from bell to bell. After Duke gets the better of the first couple of exchanges of blows, Brown bails out to the field. Duke follows him and they start to brawl through both rings, into the crowd and all over the football field! Brown gets busted open. At one point, Duke drives Brown hard into the wall of the stadium itself! They finally make their way back toward the ringside area and Brown is begging off totally. He's a bloody mess. Duke pauses for a moment, and Brown drills him in the stomach and then catches Duke in the face with the ring bell! Now both men are bleeding profusely. The fight continues back into the ring but neither man can put the other down for a three count. Duke is down, and a frustrated Brown starts scaling the ropes. This isn't something we're used to from Kerry Brown! He gets to the top rope slowly but Duke has time to climb the corner ropes and cut him off. The fists are flying! Duke scales to the VERY top rope! Be careful! The battle continues... and Duke with a top rope superplex! Devastating impact as nearly 600 pounds of man hit the mat at once! Both men are down! But the impact leaves Brown's head and left arm resting on top of Duke. Duke's shoulders are down! 1... 2... 3! WIN: Kerry Brown Brown rolls to the outside, seemingly not sure where he is at and staggers toward the locker room area, still dripping blood. In the ring, Duke Myers finally comes to his senses and is given a round of applause in appreciation by the Charlotte fans. MATCH #5 MACW Tag Title Match Dick Murdoch & Brett Sawyer defend vs. Fabulous Rougeau Brothers (w/ Armand Rougeau & Maurice Vachon) Vachon pushes Armand to the ring in the wheelchair once more. All four men seem fired up for this match—Murdoch to get his hands on the Rougeaus, and the Rougeaus to have a shot at the gold. Be careful what you wish for... the Rougeaus end up getting the best of Murdoch and isolate him for a good 10 minutes, but don't have what it takes to put Captain Redneck down for the pin or submission. The Rougeaus try to pull a page out of the Rock 'n' Roll Express playbook and go for a double dropkick... but Sawyer scoots down the apron and grabs Murdoch as he hits the ropes. Both Rougeaus hit the mat, and Sawyer helps Murdoch reach the corner and tags in! Sawyer immediately scales to the top rope. LEAPING cross body flattens both brothers! Dropkicks for both Rougeaus! Then two clotheslines, followed by a double noggin knocker! Sawyer clotheslines Raymond and he goes head over heels over the top rope to the floor, landing right in front of Armand and Vachon. Vachon goes to help Raymond as Armand wheels around the ring... Murdoch trying to get at Raymond out on the floor as Sawyer is scaling back to the top rope. But ARMAND GETS OUT OF THE WHEELCHAIR! Armand shoves Sawyer off the top and he has a catastrophic landing to the field! Murdoch locks eyes with Armand, and takes off! Armand is SPRINTING away from the ring! Meanwhile, that's left Sawyer by himself! Raymond rolls Sawyer's carcass into the ring, and Jacques covers. 1! 2! 3! The Rougeaus are the new tag champs! WIN: Rougeaus Huge boos by the Charlotte fans, who greet Jacques and Raymond with a shower of trash as they celebrate the start of their reign. MATCH #6 JYD Handcuffed to Sir Oliver Humperdink Jimmy Valiant vs Abdullah the Butcher This match is as violent as expected. Abdullah gouges at the face of Valiant and draws blood just a couple of minutes in. The brawl spills to the floor, and after ramming Abdullah into the steps multiple times, the sadist from the Sudan also is lacerated. Back into the ring, and they're going back and forth until Sir Oliver sprays JYD with something in the face! He gets the key and unlocks himself! Sir Oliver tries to get in and interfere, but Jimmy cuts him off and delivers a HUGE roundhouse right! Abdullah hits Valiant with an open handed shot to the throat and Handsome Jimmy drops. Abdullah goes for his elbow... Valiant moves! Valiant with a leaping elbow of his own! And another! And another! And another! Now to the middle rope in the near corner... ANOTHER elbow! Valiant covers! 1! 2! 3! WIN: Jimmy Valiant JYD rolls into the ring, somewhat blinded. The referee tending to him as Valiant walks past, celebrating his big win. Now the referee has used a towel to assist JYD, who appears to be able to see now. JYD stands as Valiant keeps celebrating. JYD still standing there... and Valiant motioning for JYD to take part. JYD nods... and then picks up Valiant! Thump powerslam! WHAT IN THE HELL?!?! JYD out of the ring now, and he's got a chair. JYD just laying waste to Valiant with the chair, delivering blow after blow across the back! Now he sets the chair on the mat and shoves away the referee who was helping him. A SECOND Thump powerslam on the chair!!! JYD removing his patented dog collar and chain from around his neck... and he starts strangling the life out of Jimmy Valiant with the chain! Valiant is helpless! He's turning purple! The Charlotte crowd is in SHOCK! JYD finally releases Valiant, leaving his chain wrapped around his neck and stalks out of the ring and the arena. What have we just witnessed?!?! MAIN EVENT Wargames Thunderbolt Patterson, Jack Brisco, Jerry Brisco, Animal & Hawk (w/ Paul Ellering) vs Power Play (Gino Hernandez, Masked Superstar, Arn Anderson, Ole Anderson & Matt Borne) (w/ J.J. Dillon) A review of the rules: -One man starts out for each team and they wrestle for 5 minutes. -A coin flip takes place. The winning team sends in its second man, and they will have a 2 on 1 advantage for 2 minutes. -The other team sends in its second man, for a 2 minute period. -And so on, and so forth... until all 10 men have entered. At this point, the match officially begins. -The only way to win is by submission or surrender. Thunderbolt Patterson, as promised, starts off for his team and he is egging on Ole to join him in the cage. Ole starts up the steps, then jumps down and lets Arn go instead. The Enforcer pays for Ole's cowardice, as Thunderbolt unleashes five minutes of brutality on Arn, whether it be punches, kicks, a backdrop or a huge hiptoss from one ring into the next. The crowd is loving it! Time for the coin flip... and Power Play wins the toss! NOW Ole is all too eager to get into the match, but he's met with a flurry of lefts and rights by Thunderbolt as he comes in! Thunderbolt grabs a woozy Ole and looks for the coup de grace but he gets waylayed from behind by Arn. The former tag champs now going to work on Thunderbolt, ramming him headfirst into the steel cage and drawing the first blood of the match. The blood seems to awaken a fire, however! Thunderbolt is doing his best to fight off both men, though. He smashes both their heads together as the horn sounds. Hawk is in next for his team and he's like a house afire! HUGE flying shoulder tackle levels Ole. A vicious clothesline drops Arn! Hawk now whipping Ole and Arn into big haymakers by Thunderbolt, then they combine to throw both Andersons into the steel fencing. Hawk delivering boots to Arn's carcass while, in the other ring, Thunderbolt is mauling Ole up against the cage. The horn sounds and here comes Matt Borne for Power Play and the Maniac is charging in headlong, laying out both Thunderbolt and Hawk! He drops Hawk second and starts pounding away with kicks before laying in a two-handed choke that would be illegal in any other match. A bloody Ole working over Thunderbolt and calling Arn over to help. The two-on-one mugging continues, while Hawk reverses an Irish whip by Borne and hits a big flying clothesline. Animal is in next! As the fresh man and the strongest (arguably) in the match he has all three men of Power Play pinballing! Animal with a press slam on Arn, throws him onto Borne AND Ole. Catches Borne with a powerslam, then throws him into the other ring. Thunderbolt mauling Ole up against the cage again as Animal hoists Borne up on his shoulders. Is there enough room?!? Hawk with the Doomsday Device! Borne falls right on his head!! That looked catastrophic!!! Masked Superstar is in next and he blatantly loads up his mask upon entry and starts blasting every man from Team Thunderbolt with a loaded headbutt. Superstar, Ole and Arn have the upper hand. Borne remains down the entire time, still waylaid by that Doomsday Device. Jerry Brisco is next! One half of the legendary brother duo comes in with fists flying and makes a beeline right for Superstar! With Borne still down, this gives Team Thunderbolt the 4 on 3 advantage! Superstar gets sent into the cage! Meanwhile Animal has Arn pressed again, and is driving his spine up into the cage roof again and again! Gino Hernandez, the MACW Heavyweight Champ, now is in! He shows no remorse, delivering low blows or eye gouges to every member of the opposing team. Gino helps a woozy Borne to his feet, and a 5 on 4 beatdown ensues on Team Thunderbolt. Patterson in particular is a bloody mess, and Brisco also is now lacerated! Jack Brisco is the final man to enter! Wargames the Match Beyond officially begins! Brisco makes a beeline right for Gino, who pulls him into a side headlock. The two men grapple near the ropes, and Brisco trying to ensnare Gino in a sleeper hold as Gino dips into his trunks. He's going for brass knucks... wait! No! Are those handcuffs?!? Gino slaps one of the cuffs on Brisco's wrist. He starts fighting like a cornered wildcat! Borne comes charging into the fray as Gino trying to handcuff Brisco to the cage. Jerry Brisco over to help and is met with a blatant kick to the crotch! The stadium crowd groans as Brisco drops. Meanwhile, Borne gets the cuff on! Gino stands there, cackling, as Jack Brisco lunging to get at his nemesis! With Brisco restrained, Power Play isolates the four remaining members of Team Thunderbolt: Ole is on Hawk, Arn on Thunderbolt, and Superstar on Animal. Gino and Borne grab Jerry Brisco and drag him to center ring right in front of Jack. Gino with a standing headscissors and motions to Borne who scales the ropes... SPIKE PILEDRIVER ON JERRY BRISCO! Jack Brisco starts screaming bloody murder at Gino, pulling like mad to escape the cuffs. Gino positions Brisco for ANOTHER piledriver, and Jack Brisco starts waving frantically for the referee. Brisco says he gives up! He couldn't see his brother take that move again! WIN: Power Play Huge boos from the crowd as Power Play celebrate their win. Referees and personnel hit the ring to tend to Jerry Brisco. One of them has bolt cutters and frees Jack, who makes a beeline for his brother without a second look at his enemies. Several minutes pass as Jerry Brisco is placed on a back board and taken out of the ring with care. Power Play, rather than retreat, stay and watch the entire scene. As Team Thunderbolt departs, though, the wind picks up and there's a loud noise. Is... is that a helicopter?!? Medical assistance being called in for Jerry Brisco, this is a bad situation... BUT WAIT! That's no medical copter! Instead a streamlined blue copter hovers over the stadium and slowly descends near one of the end zones. State troopers keeping back the crowd as the copter lowers and lands. The door opens and... OH MY GOD IT'S RIC FLAIR! The entire stadium ERUPTS at sight of the Nature Boy, who is resplendent in a three-piece suit and sunglasses even though the sun set hours ago. Ric Flair is here in Mid-Atlantic!

    A fine concluding chapter to the narrative you have crafted with WWF, and done so without some of the mainstays, like Hogan, who wasn't even missed here Good stuff from top to bottom. I think you definitely should be proud of what you created here.

    6/29/85, MACW TV This week, Oliver Humperdink reveals which member of his faction will face Jimmy Valiant at the Great American Bash. Plus, explaining all the rules for Wargames and a HUGE announcement by MACW President Jim Crockett. MATCH #1 MACW TV Title Match Lex Luger defends vs. Korchenko After his big win last week, the Total Package comes out like a house afire, bringing the fight directly to the mammoth Russian and battering him from pillar to post. Luger shows off his power by hoisting Korchenko in the Torture Rack for the submission and the victory! WIN: Lex Luger David Crockett interviews Luger, who says he'll face any and all challengers as champion. This brings out Tom Prichard! Prichard talks about how they've teamed together a few times out on the road, and says he wants a shot at the Great American Bash. Luger agrees! Bob Caudle sets up a video to recount Duke Myers and Kerry Brown's history in Mid-Atlantic... -Duke and Kerry teaming together as Stampede Rush -Kerry Brown challenging Duke for the TV Title, then turning on his partner and bloodying him en route to winning the title -Brawl after brawl between the two men -Last week, Duke stops Kerry Brown from using a steel chair, leaving him vulnerable to the Torture Rack by Luger.

Bob Caudle goes through the rules for Wargames. -One man starts out in the two-ring cage for each team. They wrestle for 5 minutes. -A coin flip determines which team sends in the next man. That man comes in for 2 minutes, creating a 2 on 1 advantage. -The team that loses the coin flip sends in its next man. -Staggered entry continues until all 10 men have entered. -The match does not officially begin until everyone has entered the cage. At that point, submission or surrender are the only ways to win. We hear from Team Thunderbolt: Thunderbolt Patterson, Jack Brisco, Jerry Brisco, Animal, and Hawk. Thunderbolt calls out Ole Anderson to meet him one on one at the beginning of the match. Jack Brisco says he still has his sights set on Gino Hernandez and the Heavyweight Title. Jerry Brisco still wants a shot at the U.S. Title and Masked Superstar. MATCH #4 JYD vs. Sonny King King goes nose to nose with JYD, talking trash. JYD apparently doesn't like what he says, as he just starts choking King blatantly with both hands. He batters King back into the corner, waylaying him with punches and nearly getting disqualified. JYD hoists King onto his shoulder and hits a Thump powerslam. 1... 2... JYD pulls him up! JYD hits a second Thump and scores the win. An angry JYD scowls down on King's carcass after the dominant victory and King needs help getting out of the ring. WIN: JYD After the match, Jimmy Valiant and JYD do an interview. An excited Valiant does almost all the talking, says he can't wait to get his hands at Abdullah at the Bash and have that fat toad Sir Oliver handcuffed to his good buddy JYD and be forced to watch! We then go to a previously recorded promo from Power Play. J.J. Dillon guarantees victory for his faction in the match. MATCH #5 The Nightmares vs. The Fabulous Rougeau Brothers (w/ Armand Rougeau & Maurice Vachon) Vachon pushes Armand to ringside, and then is basically ordered to caddy for the Rougeaus. He takes their jackets and, after the Nightmares grab the upper hand and both brothers bail out, is ordered to dab their sweat with a towel. The Rougeaus keep struggling with the Nightmares, who are wowing the studio audience with their high-flying offense. After Nightmare #1 dropkicks Raymond off the apron, he evades a charge by Jacques and goes for a monkey flip. Vachon grabs the waistband of Jacques, sending Nightmare #1 crashing hard to the mat. Jacques promptly goes for a jackknife pin, using the ropes for leverage! A tainted victory for the Rougeaus!

    Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling (v2)

    6/22/85, MACW TV Bob Caudle and David Crockett look at footage from the last few weeks: -Thunderbolt Patterson, the Brisco Brothers, and the Road Warriors battling Power Play -Power Play (aided by the debuting Matt Borne) decimating Thunderbolt and the Briscos -Last week at a live event in Raleigh, the Road Warriors help Dick Murdoch & Brett Sawyer defeat the Minnesota Wrecking Crew to retain the MACW Tag Titles -The Briscos and Road Warriors cut short their main event tag match to fight off Power Play together A rare appearance from Jim Crockett follows. He says that the issue between these two groups is threatening to throw the entire territory into chaos. They will settle it at the Great American Bash in a two-ring cage match called Wargames: The Match Beyond! The rules will be explained next week. Meanwhile, both groups won't be allowed in the same building until the night of Wargames from the stadium in Charlotte. A previously recorded interview with the new tag champs, Dick Murdoch & Brett Sawyer, follows. A gloating Murdoch says he now has what he needs to get a match with the Rougeaus at the Bash! MATCH #1 Brett Sawyer vs Jacques Rougeau Partners, managers and managers' valets have been banned from ringside for both of these matches. Sawyer comes out hot, but Jacques scores the victory after reversing an O'Connor Roll and grabbing a heaping handful of tights for the illegal assist. WIN: Jacques Rougeau MATCH #2 Tom Prichard, Phil La Fleur & Steve Armstrong vs Masked Superstar, Gino Hernandez & Matt Borne Huge boos for Power Play's trio, and their opponents give them all that they can handle! Back-and-forth action for about 15 minutes, with the fan favorites stopping Power Play's underhanded tactics at every turn! Has this faction been thrown off by the tag titles changing hands, and the announcement of Wargames? Apparently not... Armstrong has Gino Hernandez isolated in the ring, but misses on a dropkick. Gino follows with a chop block then finishes Armstrong by submission with the figure four—Jack Brisco's very own move! WIN: Power Play MATCH #3 TV Title Match Kerry Brown defends vs. Lex Luger After Luger got the best of Brown in a Championship Challenge at a recent live event, Brown is obligated to put the title on the line here. Brown comes right at Luger—but this promising rookie sees it coming. It's all Luger until Brown blatantly rakes his eyes, then starts unloading with his punishing punches and kicks. Duke Myers is out now, and he starts heckling Brown from the commentary position. Frustrated that he hasn't put away Luger, Brown starts jawing at Duke, and that's the opening the challenger needed! Two clotheslines, and a big back body drop! Brown is reeling, Luger catches him and hits a power slam... but wait now here comes Sir Oliver Humperdink and his Samoans! Jimmy Valiant and JYD, they're out to try and even the odds! A huge brawl at ringside! The referee gets distracted, and Brown is into the ring with a chair! Duke Myers down to the ring in the chaos, and he yanks the chair away. Brown jawing at his former partner... and gets picked up in the Human Torture Rack by Luger! Brown has nowhere to go! He submits! Luger is the new champ! WIN: Lex Luger by submission (AND NEW TV Champ) A huge celebration with JYD, Valiant, and Luger after the final bell. Back from the break to an interview with the three fan favorites. Luger promises to be a fighting champion. Valiant says he knows what the people want at the Great American Bash—and that's running Sir Oliver out of the territory. He challenges Humperdink to pick any man in his stable for a match at the Bash to settle the score, once and for all! MATCH #4 Johnny Weaver vs Dutch Mantell Mantell has all his gear. His boots are well-laced. He has no excuses this time against Weaver, who is raring to go after two weeks of false starts by the Dirty Dutchman. Mantell tries some stall tactics, avoiding locking up with Weaver until the studio audience is howling for his blood. Finally Weaver reaches through the ropes for two handfuls of hair, hoisting Mantell into the ring with a suplex. Before he can follow up, Outlaw Ron Bass hits the ring and starts laying the boots to Weaver. That quickly brings out Mr. Wrestling II to even the odds! The two veterans clear the ring, and end up nose to nose. II extends his hand—and Weaver takes it! WIN: Weaver by DQ After the break, Johnny Weaver and Mr. Wrestling II get interviewed by Bob Caudle. They challenge Outlaw Ron Bass and Dutch to a tag match at the Bash. MATCH #5 Adrian Street vs. Mike Jackson Street wins rather quickly and easily, submitting Jackson with what Crockett keeps calling the Gator Hold. After the match, Street corrects Crockett on the name, noting the hold now “heretofore and forever” shall be known as the Lordly Privilege. WIN: Adrian Street by submission MAIN EVENT Dick Murdoch vs Raymond Rougeau A back-and-forth match as Raymond takes the fight right to Murdoch. The misstep for Rougeau comes when he goes for a leaping dropkick, but the cagey Captain Redneck grabs the ropes and Rougeau crashes to the mat. A running neckbreaker, followed by a brainbuster, and just like that it is over! WIN: Dick Murdoch Brett Sawyer hits the ring and the new tag champs celebrate. Caudle and Crockett go to wrap up the show when Kerry Brown comes charging back into the studio. He says he's had all he can handle of Duke Myers, and one of them has to go! He challenges Duke to an Anything Goes, Loser Leaves Town match at the Bash. Duke is quick to come into the studio and accept. Referees are getting between the two men as the show ends.
