    The WWF Presents: WrestleMaia III

    The WWF Presents: WrestleMania III March, 29, 1987 The Houston Astrodome, Houston, Texas -The screen opens to Vince McMahon in the middle of the ring... Vince McMahon: Welcome everyone to WRESTLEMANIA III! We are here in the Houston Astrodome for the greatest event in the history of Sports Entertainment! I would like to introduce to you the singer of America the Beautiful… Houston’s own… Kenny Rogers! Kenny Rogers: O beautiful for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain For purple mountain majesties, above the fruited plain America, America, God shed His grace on thee And crown thy good with brotherhood, from sea to shining sea O beautiful for Pilgrim feet, whose stern impassioned stress A thoroughfare for freedom beat, across the wilderness America, America, God mend thine every flaw Confirm thy soul in self control, Thy liberty in law O beautiful for heroes proved, in liberating strife Who more than self their country loved, and mercy more than life America, America, May God they gold refine Till all success be nobleness, and every gain divine O beautiful for patriot dream, that sees beyond the years Thine alabaster cities gleam, undimmed by human tears America, America, God shed His grace on thee And crown thy good with brotherhood, from sea to shining sea ~The crowd erupts as he finishes the song and the fans are going nuts! We cut to Gorilla and Jesse in the booth! Gorilla: Welcome everyone to WRESTLEMANIA III! I am Gorilla Monsoon alongside Jesse the Body Ventura and Jess… you can cut the electricity with a knife… this is the moment we’ve all been waiting for! Jesse: You’ve got that right Monsoon… right here… right now… we put it all on the line and the world is going to see the greatest spectacle in the history of sports and entertainment. Gorilla: What a card we’ve got for you fans… four titles on the line… perhaps none bigger than that of Hulk Hogan taking on Ric Flair for the WWF Championship… can the Hulkster regain his title? Jesse: What’s this “his title” stuff Monsoon? Flair beat him a year ago… he’s beat everyone since then… he holds the cards and now Hogan has to stand up to Flair’s challenge! Gorilla: Oh please… he’s been ducking and dodging him in a one on one match for the title for months… tonight the Hulkster gets revenge! Right now it is time for our opening contest… let’s take it to the ring! The Rockers vs The Russians w/ Slick -A hot opener and we get the ring carts bringing the guys down to the ring. The Rockers are really hyping up the crowd while the Russians are getting some big time heat. We get a fun 8-minute opener with the Russians controlling early but the Rockers coming back with a huge flurry. We see them just hit a breakneck pace before double dropkicking Nikolai out of the ring to the floor and then setting up Boris for the double fist drop and the victory! The crowd explodes for these two young stars who have got big plans for 1987! We cut back to Jesse and Gorilla who put over the opening match and talk about the Rockers as contenders. They put over the next contest… which Jesse calls an All-Star team on one side with the Bossman, Hercules, Muraco, and Bad News while Gorilla says the team of Tito, Davey, Billy Jack, and Sting are the Rising Stars! We have got eight-man tag team action coming up right now! Tito Santana, Billy Jack Haynes, Davey Boy Smith & Sting vs Bad News Brown, The Big Bossman w/ Slick, Hercules w/ Jimmy Hart & Don Muraco w/ Mr. Fuji -These guys go for about 12-minutes and it is a fun little encounter with everyone getting in their shots. The Bossman is the true star of the heel team and he gets in some nasty blows throughout the contest. Tito is a great leader while Davey Boy matches power with Hercules and Sting ignites the crowd. The finish sees Muraco nail Bad News on accident. Bad News then leaves the ring and Muraco and Bossman try to stop him but Bad News walks off… when they turn around it is Sting flying over the top rope with a splash taking them both out! Inside the ring Hercules turns around and here comes Tito with the flying forearm for the 3-count! The Babyfaces hold strong here and the crowd is going nuts! We cut to a special video highlighting the Curt Hennig and Kamala feud...Curt Hennig won the TV title back on December 29th and has successfully defended the title on 18 different occasions. One of those occasions was a DQ finish over Kamala who splash him outside the ring on the floor. Fuji dispatched Kamala after Muta left a loser leaves town match against Hennig. Tonight Hennig comes in with busted ribs but the title… will he walk away with it? TELEVISION CHAMPIONSHIP Curt Hennig © vs Kamala w/ Mr. Fuji -The Uganda Giant looks enormous here and comes with with spear and shield and he is ready to tear into someone. Hennig comes out to a pretty good pop as the Houston crowd is behind him. These guys go 9-minutes with both men getting in some offense. This match is reminiscent of the 1985 Magnum vs Kamala match from GAB. We see the Giant look like he is about to destroy Hennig within an inch of his life but Hennig finds a way to come back and gets the crowd going before he moves from a big splash and then hits a pair of dropkicks. Kamala is staggering and Hennig goes up top for a flying cross body for the 3-count! Jesse and Gorilla put over Curt Hennig as one of the premiere up and coming wrestlers of 1987. They say he is in line for a shot at the IC title and should be someone who Savage keeps an eye on. They turn their attention to the tag team titles and talk about all the challengers. We then get hyped for the Rougeaus vs Dream Team contest! The Rougeau Brothers vs Greg Valentine & Dino Bravo w/ Jimmy Hart -This is a fun little tag match with Jesse Ventura really hyping up how the Rougeau Brothers need to team up with Jimmy Hart. He keeps running them down for not taking his offer to manage them and tonight they will understand just what he can do. This one goes about 12-minutes with both teams getting some offense but the team of Valentine and Bravo really kicking it up a notch. It is Bravo who catches Jacques when he goes for a crossbody and then tosses him out of the ring while the referee isn’t looking. He then comes with a nasty elbow to the back of the head of Raymond and then we see the Hammer lock him in the figure-four but we get a 3-count because of Raymond being knocked out. The crowd isn’t happy about this one… we then cut to the back... Lord Alfred Hayes is with Terry Funk - Funk puts over how Andre the Giant is bigger than him…. But he’s dumber than him too! He says that the brain flow isn’t all there and that tonight… Funk is going to brand Andre again and when he pile drives him… he’s going to create a new grand canyon right here in TEXAS! Mean Gene Okerlund is with Andre the Giant - Andre is now with a new haircut and he says that he’s regained sight in his eye… he feels strong… he feels ready to make Terry Funk understand that just like the Astrodome… Andre is the 8th Wonder of the World and tonight he will put an end to Terry Funk forever! Butch Reed vs The One Man Gang w/ Slick -Butch Reed comes out to a HUGE POP! The Gang looks like the big dog here and he’s got the chain with him. Butch Reed comes down ready for a fight and he and the Gang throw some big time bombs and the crowd is going wild. This ends up being more of a street fight than anything and Butch Reed is bringing some big time blows to the Gang! Slick tries to get involved but Reed nails him with a huge right and he goes down. The referee is trying to keep order as this one goes about 9-hellacious minutes. The finish sees the Gang go for the 747 but then he wraps the chain around his waist and goes for another one but this time Reed moves and the Gang comes down hard! Reed gets up and nails him with a couple of huge rights and then a huge BODY SLAM that shakes the ring! Slick gets up and Reed runs and throws a huge forearm to knock him down. Reed then gets up on the top rope as the Gang feeds to him and BOOM with a shoulder block and the 3-count! Jesse and Gorilla go absolutely wild putting over Butch Reed. They talk about his power and strength and say that he is definitely next in line for a shot at the IC Title! Right now we head to our second championship match of the evening… let’s see how it came to be! We then cut to a hype video for our tag team championship contest Demolition has made the Hart’s lives a living hell since they had to leave the country. They returned in March after the Harts won the titles at Rumble in the Bronx. The Hitman and the Anvil have been fighting champions. They almost lost the titles at the King of the Ring when Demolition attacked them but they came back with a passion unlike any other. Tonight they face their toughest challenges. WWF TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP The Hart Foundation © vs Demolition w/ Mr. Fuji -The Harts come out in black with pink trim tonight and get the crowd going. Demo looks big and strong and we see a great 18-minute contest. These guys really pull out all the stops and do some great tag team action. We see a formula of Demo building heat and then The Harts coming close to a hot tag early and then we go back to heat with a big tag. The Anvil is single handedly changing the pace of the contest while the Hitman is hurting in the corner. Demolition really work over Bret and as chaos breaks out we see Fuji get involved. The finish sees Fuji throw the cane to Smash who breaks the cane over the skull of Bret Hart while the referee is getting the Anvil out of the ring. Smash covers while Neidhart tries to get in but Fuji holds his leg. We see the 3-count and NEW Tag Team Champions. Demolition is back on top of the mountain and the fans are not happy! Lord Alfred Hayes is with Jerry Lawler - Lawler says that Savage should have been stripped of the title over a week ago due to not defending it but he’s got the likes of Jack Tunney pulling strings for him that keep him where he is at in life. Lawler says that he’s the King of the WWF and because of that… it is his monarchy… his rules… and soon it will be HIS TITLE! Mean Gene is with Randy Savage and Elizabeth - Savage says that he is 100% and that Lawler brought out something in him that he’s never felt before. It is more than anger… it is more than the madness… it is a fear. Yeah a fear… you see something Jerry Lawler… you brought out a fear in me that I have no clue what I am going to do next. I have no control over the Madness anymore. It may be for the title tonight but understand me Jerry Lawler… understand that I am not talking to you right now but I am talking to the world. Put the women and children to bed… because the Macho Man is coming hunting… Ohhh yeaah… I am coming hunting and just like Louis the 16th… OFF WITH HIS HEAD! DIG IT! We then cut to special footage of how our next contest came to be! After the Texas Deathmatch in December… Terry Funk disappeared only to reappear at the Rumble in the Bronx and on that night he stuck a branding iron in Andre the Giant’s face! The bloodied giant vowed revenge and Funk continued to attack. He sent his henchmen...Manson and Buck but they both fell to the Giant who vowed to put Funk down and away forever! Andre the Giant vs Terry Funk Funk literally comes out with the branding iron on Fire… you can see the flame from the arena and the crowd is going nuts. We see WWF officials out there trying to control him but nothing doing. Andre then comes out to a MONSTER pop! The loudest of the evening thus far. He comes into the ring and Funk comes after him but Andre with a big boot and Funk goes flying… as does the branding iron! We then see a great 13-minute brawl with action all over the ring and the referee lets them go after it. We see Funk use a chair. We see Andre throw him into the guardrail. The fun highlight was Funk trying to piledrive Andre outside the ring but Andre flipping him over his back into the crowd. The fans are going wild for this one as we do see the tide turn with Funk gets hold of his branding iron again and nails Andre. It leads to them getting back in the ring and Andre busted open pretty good. The final moments see Funk try to piledrive Andre but Andre flips him over his back and then comes crashing down on his chest for the 3-count! The crowd pops huge and Andre is the winner! Gorilla and Jesse put over this chaotic event and how Funk went all the way until the end. Andre rides into the sunset as a true hero to all of these fans. Gorilla and Jesse then put over the big IC Title match coming up next! We cut to special video of how our IC title match came to be. Jerry Lawler showed up in the WWF in December of 1986. At the Rumble in the Bronx he was in the final four with Reed, Gang, and Savage. He and Gang tried to team up on Savage but the Macho Man turned the tide and eliminated the Gang and then Lawler. Lawler went into the King of the Ring and beat Curt Hennig in the Finals. He then tried to dismantle Hennig only for Savage to come back and help him. Lawler then pulled out all the stops when he piledrove Savage on the concrete floor in front of Elizabeth. Savage was out for weeks and this is his first night back… will he have ring rust against the WWF’s King of the Ring or will the former King and current IC Champion reign supreme again? We get some fun entrances from Savage who comes out wearing white tights and white boots and looking swank AF. Lawler has got a black singlet with white trim. He holds the crown up high and is screaming for the fans to bow down to him. INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP Randy Savage © w/ Elizabeth vs Jerry the King Lawler -What a moment here with a matchup that many thought would never happen. We’ve got two of the best in their prime right now and the crowd is going wild for Savage. He is up there with Andre in terms of a pop and Jesse and Gorilla put him over but wonder just what effect his head injury will have. These guys get into a 22-minute dance of move for move and then some outside brawling that raises the stakes. These two guys throw some big time bombs and Lawler even pulls down the strap outside the ring. Savage is able to turn the tide and hit a great double axe-handle smash outside which gets the crowd buzzing. The referee tries to get involved but he ends up getting knocked down for his presence. We then see Lawler ram Savage’s head into the ring post and he’s knocked out. His body is somewhat lifeless as Lawler picks him up and gives him a piledriver outside the ring on the floor and the fans are going nuts! Savage is down and out. Gorilla is going nuts on commentary while Jesse is just putting this over in a big way. Lawler picks up the referee and tosses him into the ring but he’s out of it. Then Lawler does the unthinkable… he grabs Elizabeth’s hand and pulls her into the ring. Lawler says she is going to bow down and kiss his feet but Liz won’t do it! The crowd is stirring because out of nowhere… it is Savage… he is climbing up the turnbuckle… oh my… Lawler yells at Elizabeth but she SMACKS him something good and he turns around for Savage who hits the double axe-handle smash. Savage grabs Lawler and gives him his own piledriver! The crowd is going wild right now. Savage goes up top… from across the ring… FLYING ELBOW DROP for the 1…...2…...3!!! Savage has won it! Savage retains the title! The crowd EXPLODES! We see him riding the cart to the back with Elizabeth… he’s holding the title and his woman… the fans are in tears! Mean Gene is standing by with Ric Flair, Arn Anderson, Tully Blanchard, and Bobby Heenan. - They each take turns running down their opponents tonight… Bobby Heenan: Let me just set the record straight. One year ago… Barry Windham told me about an opportunity and I am the one who invested in it and took it and look at where we’re at now. The Horsemen have ruled the WWF for one year and no one has even come close. We’ve held the titles but tonight… tonight we right all the wrongs and that starts with you Barry Windham! Tully: A lot of people out ere talking about over 60,000 people in the Astrodome… well boys and girls… this is Horsemen country. I have been tearing up the city of Houston with Gino Hernandez for years! Tonight… we come out and we do what we said we’re going to do and finish off Windham and his old man once and for all! Arn: When the world turns we get night and day and when it rotates around the sun we have a year. In that rotation we have seen a lot of men come and go but the Horsemen have stood the test of time. Barry Windham, tonight, I want you to know this… every single man, woman, and child out there is going to watch something special happen tonight… They are going to be taken back to their childhood and reminded of a great story… that story is Old Yeller… and boy… we didn’t cry when Old Yeller died and tonight we won’t shed a tear! Ric Flair: What we’ve got here is the making of history right before our very eyes. The world is watching the greatest event in the history of sports and entertainment. It transcends professional wrestling. This is a night that all the naysayers… all the fools out there thought would never happen. They said it was dead and that no one could rise it from the ashes well look alive folks because by God we’re here! We are in custom made suits… we’re draped in tradition that is second to none and world renowned for the greatest we have achieved and WILL achieve. Every single obstacle in our path has been pushed over or run through and tonight… Hulk Hogan… you are the biggest boulder. You are nothing but a pebble in the life of Ric Flair… you are like that pebble… you know in the bottom of your shoe… well I am going to drop that pebble in the ocean of life tonight and I am going to rise from the waves with the world title by my side… with a tear in my eye I will announce to the world that I am THE MAN in this business! Hogan… understand this… when it is all said and done tonight… you will know that you were in the ring with the greatest professional wrestler in the world and you couldn’t hang… WOOOOO! Mean Gene: Oh please… let’s take a look at how this all came to be... Where to begin… perhaps Boston almost a year ago? Flair won the title only for Hogan to never get a one on one shot until now! Flair dispersed many different bounty hunters with up to $100,000 on the line but none of them could finish the job. Hogan and Windham fought for a number one contenders match at Rumble in the Bronx and put on a classic. The finish saw Hogan earn the match and then it was Flair who challenged him. At King of the Ring, the Horsemen were after Hogan in a six-man but with the help of Tito Santana and Jack Mulligan, Hogan won the match and then it was a straight line to WrestleMania. We’ve seen the contract signing… Hogan busted open by Flair… Hogan screaming that he’ll win the title on the Prime Time as a bloody mess. It comes to this. Flair has defeated so many in his path… even Hogan… tonight over 70,000 people will watch these two Icons of professional wrestling lay claim to the most important championship in the the world… who walks out with the gold? Mean Gene is standing by with Hulk Hogan… Mean Gene: Hulk… we heard from the Horsemen… we heard from Ric Flair…. Tonight… it is a year in the making and you finally get your shot at the title… Hulk Hogan: Well you know something Mean Gene… tonight is about more than titles dude… tonight is about pride… it is about believing in yourself. It is about going out in front of 60,000 people and showing every single one of them every single ounce of blood, sweat, and tears you have in your body! Ric Flair… you have come out here and said you’re the man… well… you said it before and I will say it again… to be the MAN… you have got to BEAT the MAN and Ric Flair… I am the MAN standing in front of you brother and tonight I am going to show the world why Hulkamania is the strongest force in the world. For all the people out there in the audience and the millions at home… I am going to prove to you and the rest of the world that Hulkamania will live forever. Whether it is the sweat of my brow or by the blood… tonight I am going to regain the WWF Title and once again Hulkamania will be on top of the mountain and WHATCHA GONNA DO WHEN IT COMES CRASHING DOWN ON YOUUUUUU!!!!!! ARRGGHHHHH! Mean Gene: Fans it doesn’t get any bigger than this… let’s go to the ring! Barry Windham & Blackjack Mulligan vs Arn Anderson & Tully Blanchard w/ Bobby Heenan -Big time semi-main event level match here with a lot on the line. With the Rockers and Dream Team making claim along with the new tag team champions Demolition… those titles are certainly up for grabs for a team who can come out but titles are just a mere aspect of this feud. We see these guys go about 16-minutes and what a fight it is. We see the Horsemen get some serious heat on Barry Windham to the point where he can barely stand and his father is aching to get the tag and when he does he comes in like a house of fire and just beats the living hell out of Arn and Tully. They are able to break it down again and then get another set of heat on Blackjack who looks like a grizzled veteran who can barely stand the beating. He makes the big tag to Barry and he comes in like a house of fire with his own shots. The finish of the match is hot with both teams getting involved. We see Heenan get involved outside the ring with Windham which leaves Mulligan inside the ring and he gets double teamed for a SPIKE PILEDRIVER for the 3-count right as Barry dives back into the ring! The crowd is upset as Heenan and the Horsemen do get the victory…. Blackjack gets to his knees and looks up at Barry. Mulligan is crying as Windham helps him up and they hug. They may have lost the battle but the war is far from over. The crowd is going nuts… Gorilla and Jesse put this over huge and talk about how the Horsemen have the momentum now and how that could carry over into the main event. We then get into the ring as Gene Okerlund is standing… Mean Gene: I want to take a moment and thank all of you fans for joining us here in the Houston Astrodome! This has been an event that is unparalleled in the history of sports and entertainment. So much so that we have set an attendance record for the Astrodome… you 65,387! Thank you for joining us! Brutus Beefcake vs The Honky Tonk Man w/ Jimmy Hart -Gorilla and Jesse banter about the number and we get a fun little 6-minute match while people take a shit and get a beer for the main event. Nothing too exciting… Honky and Beefer go about it in an easy way with some fun offense. The finish sees Jimmy distract the referee and Honky nail Beefcake in the back with the guitar before getting in the ring for the count out victory. Beefcake then brings the guitar back in and finishes the job smashing it on Honky’s back and then cutting some of Jimmy Hart’s hair as Jesse says this is an insult! Gorilla and Jesse then run it down for our main event. They put it all on line with it being so much more than just the WWF title. They talk about the history of the title and how Hogan has been champion for so long and now Flair has held the title for an extended length. They put over how anything could happen and it probably will as we cut to the ring for the introductions. We see both men come out with great entrances. Flair is in a powder blue robe with white trim. He walks down to the aisle… that long walk… the crowd is stirring as Flair gets into the ring and stands still. We then hear the absolutely mind-crushing POP for Hogan who comes out going absolutely WILD! He is talking up a storm. He is clapping hands and pointing into the ring. The fans are just going NUTS right now and Jesse says he can’t even hear himself think! We head to the The Fink! Howard Finkel: Ladies and gentlemen… this is our main event of the evening and it is for the WWF Heavyweight Championship of the World! Introducing first… the challenger. He hails from Venice Beach, California! He is the former WWF Heavyweight Champion of the world. Ladies and gentlemen… the IMMORTAL HULK HOGAN! Howard Finkel: His opponent… the champion! He hails from Charlotte, North Carolina. He is the reigning and defending WWF Heavyweight Champion of the World! Ladies and gentlemen… the NATURE BOY… RIC FLAIR! WWF CHAMPIONSHIP Hulk Hogan vs Ric Flair © w/ Bobby Heenan -This is it… the moment we’ve all been waiting for… Hogan and Flair one on one. For 28-minutes… we see Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair tell a story that is unparalleled. We see Hogan get the upperhand early… he controls Flair early and shows off his power. Flair has to regroup with Bobby Heenan and they come up with a plan. We get the second part of the match in which Flair clips the knee. He then goes to work and Hogan does everything he can to try and kick him away and get free but nothing doing. Flair even hits a bodyslam. He breaks the knee down something awful and Hogan makes his first flurry and gets control again and they go outside to brawl The crowd stirs as they come back in the ring and Flair once again clips the knee. He goes to work in a big way and Jesse says that Hogan won’t be able to move. Flair then locks in the figure-four in the middle of the ring and the crowd is stirring. Hogan looks to be writhing in pain in a serious way. He is hurting bad and Flair locks it in and rocks back an forth and then Hogan goes down for a 1….2….HOGAN POPS UP AND HE POINTS AT FLAIR! The crowd explodes when Hogan pulls Flair’s leg off and they separate and then Hogan begins to Hulk up as Flair starts throwing some shots and Hogan gets up. He hammers on Flair and the crowd is going wild as Flair gets tossed to the ropes and Hogan throws up the big boot and then Flair goes flying over the top rope to the floor! Flair gets up and he is busted as Hogan comes out and he is hammering down on him and then Heenan comes from behind but Hogan turns around and smashes him before he bodyslams him on the outside mat! Joey Marella is checking on Heenan and here comes Flair from behind with the title and Hogan slams into the ringpost and now Hogan is busted wide open. We get a couple more minutes of brawling as both men get back in the ring and we get the Flair turnbuckle spot and Hogan tosses him across the ring and the crowd pops! Hogan is still Hulked up and Flair comes and here is a huge press slam! Hogan picks him up for a couple more shots and goes for a bodyslam but Flair goes over his back. Flair with a knee to his back and Hogan nails the turnbuckle and Flair clips the knee again! Flair goes for the figure-four but Hogan kicks him into the ringpost and pops up as Flair turns around and here comes Hogan with an AXE BOMBER! Hogan hits the ropes and LEG DROP! 1….2…..3!!! HULK HOGAN HAS WON IT! HULK HOGAN HAS WON IT! HULK HOGAN IS THE NEW WWF WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION! I want to take a moment and thank everyone for the opportunity to take the reigns of this project and finish it here with this show. It has been a pleasure putting together some really fun shows and hopefully helping people hone their craft of writing shows.

    The WWF Presents: WrestleMaia III

    We’d like to announce that WrestleMania III will be held in the Houston Astrodome in Houston, Texas on March 29, 1987! (Not really… show will be posted this weekend) This will be the final show for the 1983 project. We want to thank you for all the support over the last four years to get to this point and to cap it off with the show that was for all intensive purposes… the end of the Territories. Let’s take a look at the card... The Rockers vs The Russians w/ Slick This one built over a series of tag team encounters. The Rockers continued to challenge bigger teams and the Russians overpowered them on two encounters. WrestleMania poses a chance for the Rockers to take the next step as tag team contenders and earn a shot at the gold! Brutus Beefcake vs The Honky Tonk Man w/ Jimmy Hart Brutus and Honky have been arguing about Honky’s hair over the last couple of weeks. Brutus has threatened to shave him bald in front of the world! Honky says no one can touch the King’s locks and Brutus isn’t fit to touch his hair! Tito Santana, Billy Jack Haynes, Davey Boy Smith & Sting vs Bad News Brown, The Big Bossman w/ Slick, Hercules w/ Jimmy Hart & Don Muraco w/ Mr. Fuji This is a sort of all-star challenge for these eight men. Tito leads his team against a quartet of challengers who all want to reign supreme. The Rougeau Brothers vs Greg Valentine & Dino Bravo w/ Jimmy Hart Jimmy Hart has been trying to court the Rougeau Brothers for weeks but they continue to tell them that they want no part of him or anything he stands for. This caused issue with Valentine and Bravo who have had a lot of success as of late as a team and look to show the Rougeaus why they are the Dream Team! Butch Reed vs The One Man Gang w/ Slick Butch Reed has been going wild as of late. He had a very impressive showing at the Rumble at the Bronx lasting until the final four… then being eliminated by the Gang. The Gang and Slick’s army have taken every measure to hurt Reed before WrestleMania… but tonight he comes in with revenge on his mind and vengeance in his heart! Andre the Giant vs Terry Funk After the Texas Deathmatch in December… Terry Funk disappeared only to reappear at the Rumble in the Bronx and on that night he stuck a branding iron in Andre the Giant’s face! The bloodied giant vowed revenge and Funk continued to attack. He sent his henchmen...Manson and Buck but they both fell to the Giant who vowed to put Funk down and away forever! Barry Windham & Blackjack Mulligan vs Arn Anderson & Tully Blanchard This match was made up of many layers. The first being Windham low blowing his father on December 29th… then the Horsemen dispersed him to take out Hulk Hogan at the Rumble in the Bronx. If Windham won… he would earn a world title shot but it was Hogan who came out on top. Windham was chastised by the Horsemen and the final moment happened Arn and Tully were holding Blackjack and Windham had to make the final blow but instead Windham nailed the Horsemen. He has joined his father for this big match tonight. TELEVISION CHAMPIONSHIP Curt Hennig © vs Kamala w/ Mr. Fuji Curt Hennig won the TV title back on December 29th and has successfully defended the title on 18 different occasions. One of those occasions was a DQ finish over Kamala who splash him outside the ring on the floor. Fuji dispatched Kamala after Muta left a loser leaves town match against Hennig. Tonight Hennig comes in with busted ribs but the title… will he walk away with it? WWF TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP The Hart Foundation © vs Demolition Demolition has made the Hart’s lives a living hell since they had to leave the country. They returned in March after the Harts won the titles at Rumble in the Bronx. The Hitman and the Anvil have been fighting champions. They almost lost the titles at the King of the Ring when Demolition attacked them but they came back with a passion unlike any other. Tonight they face their toughest challenges. INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP Randy Savage © vs Jerry the King Lawler Jerry Lawler showed up in the WWF in December of 1986. At the Rumble in the Bronx he was in the final four with Reed, Gang, and Savage. He and Gang tried to team up on Savage but the Macho Man turned the tide and eliminated the Gang and then Lawler. Lawler went into the King of the Ring and beat Curt Hennig in the Finals. He then tried to dismantle Hennig only for Savage to come back and help him. Lawler then pulled out all the stops when he piledrove Savage on the concrete floor in front of Elizabeth. Savage was out for weeks and this is his first night back… will he have ring rust against the WWF’s King of the Ring or will the former King and current IC Champion reign supreme again? WWF CHAMPIONSHIP Hulk Hogan vs Ric Flair © Where to begin… perhaps Boston almost a year ago? Flair won the title only for Hogan to never get a one on one shot until now! Flair dispersed many different bounty hunters with up to $100,000 on the line but none of them could finish the job.

At King of the Ring, the Horsemen were after Hogan in a six-man but with the help of Tito Santana and Jack Mulligan, Hogan won the match and then it was a straight line to WrestleMania. We’ve seen the contract signing… Hogan busted open by Flair… Hogan screaming that he’ll win the title on the Prime Time as a bloody mess. It comes to this. Flair has defeated so many in his path… even Hogan… tonight over 70,000 people will watch these two Icons of professional wrestling lay claim to the most important championship in the the world… who walks out with the gold?

    WWF On Tour December 1986

    http://jrockvideos.weebly.com/uploads/1/5/9/7/1597022/944368.jpg WWF Live 12/29 New York City, NY – Madison Square Garden Hosted by Gene Okerlund & Lord Alfred Hayes The Rockers vs The One Man Gang & The Big Bossman w/ Slick -A hot opener with the Rockers coming out firing on all cylinders. Perhaps not the same match that would happen in two years but we still have a lot of energy for the opener and the crowd is into it. He finish sees Shawn Michaels get his head taken off by Gang with a clothesline. Marty leaps off the top for a crossbody but Bossman catches him for a powerslam and then a 747 from Gang for the finish and the 3-count. These two have got a bright future in 87! Brutus Beefcake vs Dino Bravo w/ Jimmy Hart -A lot of strutting but not a lot of cutting for these two. Jimmy Hart plays foil outside the ring and it ends up costing Beefcake in the long run when he tries to attack Jimmy but Bravo with a big knee and then he sends Beefer into the ring post and he cracks his shoulder. Bravo with the back suplex and the finish for the 3-count. Beefcake looks hurt and Bravo look strong. Butch Reed vs Nikolai Volkoff w/ Boris & Slick -The loudest pop so far goes to Butch Reed who comes in and he has got the fans solidly behind him. He fights all the odds and the two and even three on one attempts before capitalizing on a double head bump with the Russians leading to Reed coming off the top rope with a flying shoulder block for the finish! FAMILY FEUD Blackjack Mulligan vs Barry Windham w/ Bobby Heenan -This is an odd match with a lot of ends needing to be tied up. These guys go about 14-minutes and it ends up with some juice on both men. It is a blood feud as Jesse says and that pun is intended. The finish sees Mulligan lock in the claw on his bloodied son to the point that he is going down in the middle of the ring and then he looks down at him and let’s go. He has got blood, sweat, and tears in his eyes. Heenan is barking at the referee and gets his attention before Windham with a LOW BLOW on Mulligan and he goes down. Windham covers him for the 3-count and the crowd is going absolutely insane. They are throwing debris into the ring so much that Fink gets on the microphone to tell them to stop! Windham and Heenan are escorted back… this is NUTS! TELEVISION CHAMPIONSHIP Curt Hennig vs The Great Muta © w/ Mr. Fuji -15-minute time limit for these two one more time but this time we see Hennig counteract Fuji when he delivers a exy dropkick that sends Fuji flying. Muta goes for the Myst but Hennig ducks and then dropkicks him right in the jaw before setting up the Northern Lights for the 3-count right at the end of the match. We have a NEW TV Champion and the crowd is starting to come back around and cheer. WWF CHAMPIONSHIP Andre the Giant vs Ric Flair © w/ Bobby Heenan -60-minute time limit but this one doesn’t go that long. These guys come out for an enjoyable 15-minutes with Andre pretty gassed at the end. It is a cat and mouse game with both men trying to work their style. Once Andre does get his hands on him it is a great spectacle and Flair bumps like no one else for the big man. Flair is able to get the upper-hand and try to work the knees to break Andre down. In a funny spot he attempts to go for the figure-four but Andre kicks him through and sends Flair flying out of the ring. We see Windham come back out and Andre headbutts him to a pop from the crowd! Heenan comes to get involved and he gets nailed with a headbutt! Andre grabs Windham and Hennan and here comes Flair off the apron with a wooden chair and it shatters into a million pieces The referee calls for a DQ and Andre is the winner but Flair still keeps the title. The Horsemen retreat and here comes Andre for more! Tito Santana vs Don Muraco w/ Mr. Fuji Tito comes out to cool down the crowd for a big and wins a fun little 11-minute match. Muraco looks okay but his time on top is over and this may be his role for the foreseeable future. TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP The Rougeau Brothers vs Arn Anderson & Tully Blanchard © w/ Bobby Heenan -These four come out and churn out another great 18-minute contest. We get a lot of double team moves from each team. The Horsemen look to be on their last leg and the Rougeaus come close but it is a nasty knee to the skull from Tully that sends up Raymond for a spike piledriver and 3-count as Heenan grabbed the leg of Jacques! INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP Randy Savage © w/ Elizabeth vs Greg Valentine w/ Jimmy Hart -The loudest pop of the night goes to Randy Savage who is without question rising up the ranks in the world and in the WWF. A pretty good formulaic 15-minute match with Valentine getting some great heat on Savage before he comes back with a loud ovation from the crowd. The finish sees Valentine counter the big double axe-handle smash and go for the Figure-Four but Savage rolls him through for the 3-count! TEXAS DEATHMATCH Hulk Hogan vs Terry Funk -Savage did have the biggest pop… then Hulk Hogan came out. This one is a 12-minute bloodbath with Funk and Hogan. We see chairs and even the branding iron come into effect. Manson and Buck come out but Hogan has got Sting to back him up and we see the big Stinger Splash over the top rope onto both of them. We get back to the one on one and Funk nails the piledriver on a chair and at the 9-count Hogan gets up and Hulks up in a big way as the crowd is going nuts. Hogan with his series and Funk isn’t moving but then an AXE-BOMBER and Funk goes flying out of the ring. Funk slowly gets up and grabs the steel ringsteps...and he throws them into the ring. We get a couple more shots and then Hogan nails him with the big boot and Funk goes down to a knee… Hogan picks up the ringsteps and runs as Funk turns and Hogan NAILS HIM WITH THE STAIRS! Funk goes down for the 10-count. Hogan poses. Hulkamania is back on top! As you can see the momentum of this game has all but ceased. I have plans up to Mania but I don’t know who is still reading or if anyone is still reading. Please let me know if you are and I will perhaps put up my quick results to Mania III and how things would play out. Thanks for all the support over the last 3 years. I helped take this game from an idea to something special, I only wish we could have kept that going for longer!

Sting & Davey Boy vs The Nasty Boys -This feud was put to the backburner for sometime but they reignite it here with a fun little tag team contest. The highlight is Sting who is greener than grass but really coming into his own. He has got a lot of spark and with Davey Boy… they put it all together. The big finish sees the Nasty Boys try to double team Davey Boy who ducks a double clothesline and Knobbs goes over the top to the floor. Saggs runs for another clothesline but Davey ducks and Sting comes flying off the top rope for a crossbody and a 3-count! The fans pop for a big win here! Terry Taylor vs Kamala w/ Fuji -Poor Terry Taylor gets dealt a tough hand here tonight. He comes in and plays a great babyface to Kamala but just can’t seem to get things going. The finish sees him go for a flying crossbody but Kamala grabs him and slams him and then comes for another knee drop right to the throat for the 3-count! The Hart Foundation vs Honky Tonk & Hercules w/ Jimmy Hart -This is really a glorified showcase for the Harts. Hercules and Honky are all over the place with their timing. They have some heat with Jimmy but together they are nowhere near the caliber of the Harts. The finish is a good one with the power of the Anvil on display when he nails Hercules with a flying shoulder block with help from the Hitman and then gets the 3-count after a big dropkick on Honky from Bret! Mike Rotundo vs Jerry Lawler -The one we’ve all been waiting for. He came out a week ago and proclaimed to the WWF that he was here and he had no time for the peasants. We see Lawler and Rotundo put on a good one and we get to see just how low Jerry Lawler will go in his quest for supremacy in the WWF. The finish see’s Lawler grab something out of his tights and then just WHALE Rotundo in the throat before grabbing him for a piledriver and the 3-count! We cut to Gorilla and Jesse who sign us off of the broadcast for Prime Time and tell you to tune into your local networking for the MSG Network to see the rest of the show here from the Garden!

Davey Boy & The Hart Foundation vs Valentine, Dino, & Hercules w/ Jimmy Hart Good contest with the Hart Foundation and Davey Boy really showing off their skills as a team.

It is a 3-count victory but when Honky comes to lay in some shots Savage comes to even the odds and they back off.

    WWF On Tour December 1986

    https://next-episode.net/tv-shows-images/big/wwf-prime-time-wrestling.jpg WWF Presents: Prime Time Wrestling 12/1 Hosted by Gorilla Monsoon & Jesse the Body Ventura Matches from: Phoenix, AZ – Veterans Memorial Auditorium PT opens with a lot of footage from SNME this past weekend. We see the Horsemen regain the Tag Titles… Randy Savage retain the IC title… Windham pin his father… and the Hulkster beating Kamala before almost being branded by Terry Funk! We cut to Gorilla and Jesse and tonight is all about the TV Title match. We get a lot of hype for Hennig and Muta and tonight will be a big one. First off we’ve got six-man tag team action as we head to the ring! Sting & The Rockers vs Honky Tonk, Valentine, & Bravo w/ Jimmy Hart -This is a pretty even contest with the babyfaces being red hot right now while the heels are getting some good heat. Jimmy Hart gets involved which leads to some issues outside the ring with Sting getting involved with him before Hercules shows up and the numbers game takes control. This leads to a double team on Marty while Shawn comes out of nowhere and tackles both Honky and Bravo over the top to the floor! Marty stumbles and here comes the Hammer with the running shin to the skull and the 3-count! Harts men with the victory and they head to the booth… Jimmy Hart and company run down Randy Savage and Greg Valentine formally challenges him to an Intercontinental Championship match. He says that Savage knows Valentine is a true champion and someone who doesn’t run from challengers! *COMMERCIAL* We’re back with the Horsemen and the gold belts in toe… all except Barry of course and Gorilla points that out. Windham says he cannot contractually challenge for the IC title until January 1st but will keep his eye on the tv title match tonight. Arn and Tully say that they just did a portion of damage to the Rougeaus… and more will come. Ric Flair says that Andre the Giant may be big in size but he can’t handle the Nature Boy and he’s looking forward to December the 29th at Madison Sq Garden when he defeats him and retains the title! Mike Rotundo vs The One Man Gang w/ Slick & The Bossman -Rotundo is outmanned and out-sized here against the Gang. Rotundo gets in some really good offense and he’s able to control a good portion of the pace of the contest but the size of the Gang is too much and then you’ve got the Bossman outside the ring who NAILS Rotundo with the night stick in the kidneys before Gang comes down with the big splash for the 3-count. They attempt to do more damage before Butch Reed comes out and chases them off! Reed joins Gorilla and Jesse and says that he heard Hacksaw Duggan was attacked by the Bossman and he doesn’t know when or if he’ll be back. He says that those two ugly fools always try to use the numbers game but he knows that a true fight is a true fight and he will face any and all comers when the time is right! *COMMERCIAL* We return to PT with Funk and his cronies Manson and Buck. They are just completely insane… Funk has the branding Iron on fire near the booth… Manson is eating raw meat under the hood and Buck just looks goofy. From all of it we hear that next week Terry Funk takes on Tito Santana and that he’s going to brand him in a spot that everyone will see and no one will forget! *COMMERCIAL* We’re back with our main event and the title is on the line. We have 15-minutes of tv time remaining and here we go with the vacant title on the line! TV CHAMPIONSHIP Curt Hennig vs The Great Muta w/ Mr. Fuji -These guys have 15-minutes and they use every bit of it. Curt Hennig has become the pro everyone was hoping for… he has got such a fluid style in the ring and to top it off he places a babyface in peril so well. Muta has such a mystery about himself that it causes fans to wonder just what will happen next. In the end we see both men with offense and then countering the others big moves. The first happens when Muta goes for the moonsault but Hennig gets the knees up. The next is when Muta tries to hit the myst and Hennig rolls through and then comes back with a huge dropkick. The final happens when Hennig is going for the Northern Lights Suplex but Muta comes up with a knife edge thrust to the throat and then we see some myst and a roll up for the 3-count! Muta is the NEXT TV Champion and he grabs the belt. Inside the ring Hennig is holding his throat and he’s got the myst all over his face. The referee never saw what happened only that something did. Muta is the TV Champ… what happens now?

Dino Bravo… you better look up to the lights tonight because the most Savage elbow in the world is going to come crashing through your heart.. DIG IT! Jimmy Hart w/ Dino Bravo: Randy Savage… I think you have been in the sun too long man. This is Houston partner… and this is going to be a shootout and I have got all the big guns with here with Dino Bravo baby! Ric Flair: WOOO! Houston Texas…. Horsemen country… tonight Barry Windham and myself WALK THAT AISLE against two of the biggest men in the sport… but size between the ears is where it counts and Mulligan… Andre… you just don’t have what it takes! Barry Windham: A lot of people have been talking about this being a family feud… well for it to be a family feud you have got to have some sense of care… Blackjack Mulligan… I don’t have the smallest shred of care for you and tonight I am going to remove you from my life! Jack Mulligan w/ Andre: Andre… it hearts me to see my son act the way he is… but I know with your help… tonight we’re going to take him and Flair to the woodshed and show those Horsemen what a good fight is all about! Mr. Fuji w/ Kamala: Tonight the bounty is on you Hulk Hogan and tonight I am going to cash in with my Kamala… he is a savage… he is a warrior… and he is hungry and tonight he will feast on you! Hulk Hogan: Well you know something dude… tonight I am out here for all of my Hulkamaniacs all over the world. Here in the United States we celebrated Thanksgiving and tonight I am thankful for all of my Hulkamanics who have supported me in my quest to become the WWF Champion again! Tonight… I face a tough challenger who is nothing but a mercenary… but tonight the check isn’t going to cash Kamala and I am going to show you why money is no object to the strongest force in the world… HULKAMANIA! Vince: Welcome everyone to Saturday Night’s Main Event! I am Vince McMahon alongside Jesse the Body Ventura! We are here in the Sam Houston Coliseum in Houston, Texas and Jesse… this is going to be a Texas sized edition of SNME! Jesse: That’s right McMahon and tonight all the rules change! Tonight, the WWF gets back to the way it belongs! Vince: What are you talking about Jesse? Jesse: Tonight the Horsemen get rid of Andre and Blackjack… they get BACK the WWF Tag Team Championship… and they get rid of Hulk Hogan! Vince: That is certainly a lot to contend with if you’re the opponents of the Horsemen tonight. We have got so many great matches but we can’t forget that the Intercontinental Championship will be on the line! Jesse: Randy Savage has shown that he is the greatest Intercontinental Champion in the history of the WWF. Tonight he faces the strength of Dino Bravo… but I can’t pick against the champion. Vince: I have to agree with you there Jesse… plus the tag team titles will be on the line… right now let’s go to Mean Gene Okerlund with Randy Savage! Mean Gene sets up his interview with Savage who is hyped up right now. He talks about Hart’s guys and says that his men will be in the back in case they get involved but he is hoping for a fair fight… DIG IT! INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP Randy Savage © w/ Elizabeth vs Dino Bravo w/ Jimmy Hart -A pretty solid opener and Savage gets the best out of Bravo. Early on we see Hercules, Valentine, and Honky attempt to walk out but here comes Brutus and the Hart Foundation as they halt them in the aisleway! We return from commercial with Bravo working over Savage but it all leads to the comeback of the Macho Man and the crowd just goes wild for it. He comes back with big rights and lefts and before we know it Savage is flying around and he jumps up to the top rope and comes off with a huge double axe-handle smash! Savage goes up again as Bravo stumbles up and Savage with another double axe-handle smash! He goes up again and he’s looking for the elbow before Jimmy Hart comes up the apron but Savage nails him with a big right hand. Dino is now up and he goes over to the turnbuckle and he grabs Savage but Savage jumps over his back and then a backslide for the 1...2...3!! Savage gets out of here with a flash pinfall! He grabs the belt and looks at Jimmy Hart… this is just the start of this one! *COMMERCIAL* We get a fun little promo with Flair and Windham who put over the bright lights of NBC but also how SNME is Horsemen showcase time and tonight they have got two big turkey’s who are going to be stuffed and served then they will get the titles back… then… Hulk Hogan will be finished forever! Andre the Giant & Blackjack Mulligan vs Ric Flair & Barry Windham w/ Bobby Heenan -An interesting contest as this is just really a big showcase for all four me. The big moment is to see Mulligan and Windham go toe to toe and the crowd has really bought into this feud while Andre and Flair continue to out-due everyone. There isn’t much workrate and before long we see Arn and Tully at ringside. This leads to a scmoz with Andre battle them outside the ring… Ric Flair low blowing Mulligan leading to Windham coming out of nowhere with a bulldog and the 3-count. Windham does look befuddled as to how Mulligan got in that position and questions Flair but they are on too big of a high right now! *COMMERCIAL* We get a great Hogan promo with Mean Gene as the Hulkster runs down Kamala, Terry Funk, and the Horsemen for all the bounties and how he proclaims that he will rid the WWF of Kamala and Terry Funk and any other bounty hunters before the end of the year and then in 1987 he will have his eye on the prize for Ric Flair. Tonight he handles the savage and he’s going to show Kamala why Hulkamania is a true man-eater! Hulk Hogan vs Kamala w/ Mr. Fuji -No big shock here with this story and how these two work together. Kamala beats down Hogan and makes him look like he’s going to die before Hogan fights back to the delight of the crowd. The big angle here is when Terry Funk shows up with Manson and Buck. There are officials and agents out to try and break this up but Funk continues to try and break through. This is enough of a distraction for Kamala to capitalize on Hogan. We see some big splashes but Hogan kicks out and Hulks up before slamming the mighty Kamala! He is going for the legdrop and then the 3-count! Once the referee hits three we see Funk, Manson, and Buck attack Hogan and start to work him over. Manson and Buck hold Hogan and Funk lights the branding iron on fire before threatening to come after Hogan but here comes Sting, Tito, and Hillbilly to clear the ring. Funk is smiling all the back with the branding iron on fire still. The crowd is in shock as Hogan regains his strength and then comes after Funk! *COMMERCIAL* We return to SNME with the Rougeau Brothers talking with Mean Gene. They put over the titles and talk about how tough of competitors the Horsemen are but the Rougeaus are champions for a reason and tonight they get to show everyone why! TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP The Rougeau Brothers © vs The Horsemen w/ Bobby Heenan -These guys get the final spot on this card and they deliver. Tag title matches have a 30-minute time limit according to the Fink and these four put on a clinic. They go 20-minutes and have a lot of smooth tags and transitions. The crowd is fully behind the Rougeaus here but there is some love for Tully and Arn. We have a lot of near-falls with both teams coming up close here and there. Jesse puts over both teams but says that the titles belong to the Horsemen and they will get them. Around the 18-minute mark we see Heenan starting to stir outside the ring before the Rougeaus double dropkick Tully out of the ring to the floor. Arn runs at them and they backdrop him over the top! The Rougeaus go out on the apron and leap for crossbodies but Arn is able to counter and he drops Jacques on his throat on the guardrail! OH MY! This is the opening as Raymond is checking on his brother but Arn comes out of nowhere with a knee right to the kidneys! Arn tosses him back into the ring and a staggering Tully comes with a knee right to the back of the neck! Wait a minute… here it comes… SPIKE PILEDRIVER! 1….2…..3!!! The Horsemen have regained the titles! This is chaos! Here comes Flair and Windham! Angel and Sherri! What a celebration! *COMMERCIAL* Jesse Ventura meets us back in the locker room with the Horsemen and the champagne is flowing! Everyone has a drink and they are hooting and hollering up a storm! Jesse says the Horsemen are right where they belong with the titles but then Barry seems to be a little left out. He says that he may not have the gold around his waist right now but it won’t be long! The Horsemen all shout and cheer as we head to Mean Gene… We cut to Mean Gene who is with Hulk Hogan and he is going nuts… he says that Terry Funk has not ended Hulkamania but enraged it! He says that he is challenging Funk to any kind of match he wants and he will show him why Hulkamania is the strongest force in the world! We then cut to Jesse and Vince who sign us off for the final SNME of 1986 and say that SNME will return in 1987 and be bigger than ever!

Davey Boy Smith vs Don Muraco w/ Mr. Fuji -This is a fun one for a couple of minutes with Davey Boy showing off his singles skills. The match ends with a schmoz when the Nasty Boys come out along with Muta and beat him down before we see the Rockers and Curt Hennig come out for the save! We have an official ruling from Jack Tunney that next week on Prime Time… Curt Hennig will face the Great Muta for the TV Title and there must be a winner or the title will go vacant and be decided in a tournament! Kamala w/ Mr. Fuji & Kim Chee defeated Hillbilly Jim -We saw Kim Chee and Fuji all get involved and hurt on Hillbilly which brought out Tito Santana. This was all just a ploy for Funk, Buck, and Jack to come out and triple team Santana before we could see Hillbilly make the save. Lots of chaos. We got an event center with Mean Gene running down the big SNME card next week highlighted by Savage vs Bravo for the IC Title along with the tag title contest! Plus we’ll see Hulk Hogan against Kamala and Andre the Giant and Blackjack Mulligan taking on Ric Flair and Barry Windham! The final segment saw the Horsemen cut promos on their foes with Andre the Giant being at the top of the list followed by Blackjack Mulligan and the Rougeau Brothers. The crowd erupted when all four of them came out and challenged the Horsemen to a match. Andre, Mulligan, & The Rougeaus vs The Horsemen -A quick little taste for the fans as these guys all got involved quickly but in the 7-minutes the match was going on nothing substantial happened. The big moment was the no contest finish and then Andre picking up Flair and tossing him out of the ring onto the Horsemen to finish the show!

    Bad News with a title change is a big move here as he's got a lot of momentum in his direction. That's a fun little six-man elimination as well with the Battlebowl rules. Final Stage - Battlebowl Rules - NWA Tag Titles... a lot going on here and my oh my did it deliver. Kerry and Gagne are the new champs... great stuff. Love to see Ole and Ivan getting a shot. I definitely think they have some merit still in this time and this is the way to use them. Great stuff all around.

    Jim Crockett Promotions November 1986 Thread

    Orndorff and Brody as a tag team... that would be quite the pairing! Dr. D and Rocky Johnson would also be a fun hard hitting affair. I am digging the awesome twosome and wondering where they will go. JCP has got a lot of singles stars and while that's a good thing it also pulls a team like these guys apart. Really fun BattleBowl rules... like I said... I am all in for it and can't wait!

WWF Live 11/16 Boston, MA - Boston Garden SIX-MAN TAG Hulk Hogan, Andre the Giant, and Blackjack Mulligan defeated Ric Flair, Barry Windham, & The One Man Gang WWF TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP The Rougeau Brothers © defeated Arn Anderson & Tully Blanchard via DQ INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP Randy Savage © defeated Dino Bravo https://next-episode.net/tv-shows-images/big/wwf-prime-time-wrestling.jpg WWF Presents: Prime Time Wrestling Hosted by Gorilla Monsoon & Jesse the Body Ventura Matches from: Worcester, MA - Centrum Gorilla and Jesse open this week putting over the big night of action including a television championship match and a six-man tag. Plus the Horsemen are here and so is Hulk Hogan to address Terry Funk… right now we head to the ring for our opening contest… Mike Rotundo & Terry Taylor vs The Russian w/ Slick -This story of the Russians continues as early on we see the One Man Gang come out and he turns this into a 3 on 1 before we see Duggan and Reed run down to the ring to break things up. Slick is goating Duggan to the back and out of the shadows…. THAT’S THE BIG BOSS MAN! The Boss Man is here and he cracks Duggan with the knight stick! This one has to be stopped by the officials as Slick has amassed an army here… We here from the Rougeau Brothers who look forward to their SNME match against the Horsemen and talk about how there is a 30-minute time limit and they will use every second of it to make the Horsemen know just how Fabulous they are! We then have Sting come out and he cuts a promo on the big TV title match tonight and he says that he knows Muta is dangerous but he knows Hennig is the better wrestler. Sting says he has found some great friends here in the WWF but knows he has a lot more enemies. He puts over Hulk Hogan before we see Terry Funk come out. Funk and Sting go back and forth while Funk is putting over how he will make Hogan paint his face too to hide his identity. Sting takes offense but then Funk sucker punches him. Funk says that no one is safe and Hogan will be the one bowing down when it is all said and done! TV CHAMPIONSHIP Curt Hennig vs The Great Muta w/ Mr. Fuji -No “true” champion here as the title has been held up. These two go the 15-minute time limit and put on a very fun match. We see lots of catch wrestling with Muta putting out some high flying here and there. With seconds remaining we see the finish of Muta going for the Moonsault but Hennig moving… Muta landing and going for a crescent kick before Hennig ducks and then grabs him for a Fisherman’s Suplex for a 2 count right as the bell rings before the referee’s hand strikes 3! The crowd is hot as they thought Hennig had won it but alas... The title is still up for grabs! The Horsemen come out and cut promos on everyone and run everyone into the ground. They talk about the Rougeaus and how they may be a good tag team but it takes defending those titles to be great and they won’t be able to do it at SNME! Windham says that Mulligan has been a thorn in his side for too long and that it is high time he removes it for good! Flair goes off on Hogan and Andre and says that Turkey Day is going to be great because of a giant 500 pound turkey named Andre the Giant! That brings out the big man but he isn’t alone as he is with the Rougeaus and Mulligan! They set the stage for a big Thanksgiving Day showdown in Indianapolis! MAIN EVENT SIX-MAN TAG Randy Savage & The Hart Foundation vs Valentine, Bravo, & Honky Tonk w/ Jimmy Hart & Hercules -A big time six-man with a lot on the line here for all involved. We see the team of the Harts and Savage really shine tonight and they have got the crowd 100% behind them. Jimmy’s boys have got some good heat and the marquee match is with Valentine vs Savage. It is off the chain with these two really putting forth an awesome effort and giving nothing but stiff shots to one another. The finish is messy with Hercules nailing Bret with the chain leading to the Anvil hurling himself out of the ring on top of him. This gets Bravo and Honky a chance to double team Savage but he duck out of the ways and ends up sending both men out of the ring but he’s there to follow. Bret Hart is slow to get up and here comes Valentine with that shin guard and CRACKS the Hitman in the skull and gets the 3-count. Brutus runs down to even the odds as this 8-man cannot be contained! The final segment sees Hulk Hogan come out to a monstrous ovation. He comes out to Mean Gene on the podium and just lays into Terry Funk and challenges him to come out right now and fight. Hogan goes into the ring and he continues to cut a promo and when Funk comes out he isn’t alone… here comes Bunkhouse Buck and Jack Manson. These two crazy fools join Funk as he walks down and they circle the ring. The crowd then pops as they get up but Tito Santana and Sting run down and even the odds! Funk and company back off and Funk is all smiles. He tells Hogan he’s a turkey and he’s going to stuff him on Thanksgiving!
