Following their loss in the Flag Match to the Rock n Roll Express at WrestleWar, Tojo’s team of Kendo Nagasaki and Muta rebounded on tv as they simple annihilated two jobbers. The interesting thing here happened during the post-match interview where Ernie Ladd asked Tojo about the loss to the Express. Tojo, the only member of his team to speak any English, seemed to mostly brush off the defeat but he did say that his young star, Muta must focus more. This was interesting as it was Nagasaki who sprayed Tojo in the eyes with the Asian mist leading to the defeat. When Jim Ross jumped in and asked Tojo to explain, Tojo and his group just walked away.
Hyatt International & Hot Stuff Inc.
The idea that Hyatt International is gaining momentum in the UWF obvious at WrestleWar. Rick Steiner comes out with a clean win over Johnny Rich and Chris Benoit survived a tough contest with Steve Cox and the leader of the group, Hot Stuff Eddie Gilbert defeated Brad Armstrong to become the new UWF Television Champion! The issue with this group is the tactics they’re using. Missy Hyatt and Chris Benoit attacked Steve Cox after the match and left him in a pretty bad way and that is nothing compared to the plot used by Eddie Gilbert to win the TV title.
Let’s bring you back to the Summit arena…
Eddie Gilbert, frustrated at the way the match is going, tosses Armstrong through the middle ropes….
The ref comes over to admonish Gilbert who argues right back… WHAM… Missy Hyatt with a low blow.
Gilbert comes to the floor while Missy jumps up on the apron and takes over the argument with the referee…. WHAM…. Irish Whip by Gilbert across the floor and into the steel barrier.
Gilbert re-enters the ring to stop the count….Again, the ref is all over Hot Stuff for his antics….
WHAM…. The fan in the front row appears to have just cracked Armstrong in the back on the head with some sort of foreign object while the ref was yelling at Gilbert.
Gilbert comes back out and roles a basically unconscious Armstrong back into the ring…
WHAM… Hotshot by Gilbert! 1…2….3!
And the NEW……. Television Champion….. Hot Stuff Eddie Gilbert.
So, who was this fan? The stipulation for the match was that if Benoit or Steiner interfered in the match, Gilbert would never get another title shot so Hyatt International had to go out and find someone new to do their dirty work for them….
Missy and Eddie decided to introduce the newest member of Hyatt International on Power Pro Wrestling …. Doug Gilbert … Eddie’s younger brother. Missy and Eddie were so excited to have a family member now entering their “training school” and Doug was just thrilled to start his career in the “family business.”
Angle #3: Woman….
The other big question coming out WrestleWar was why did Woman come out and attack Kevin Sullivan? Last time Woman was in the UWF, she was leading a group of misfits that included Man and Luscious Lanny so there didn’t seem to be a connection between her and Sullivan.
Woman shed some light on the situation this week on Power Pro Wrestling.
Woman: The reason I attacked Kevin Sullivan was simple. Kevin and I have been working together for quite some time. We decided that I would come to the UWF in search of the next great thing. You people thought I was here to manage Luscious Lanny Poffo… No I was here to in search of the perfect wrestler… the next monster to take over here in UWF. While I was here, I spotted Baby Bull Leon White and I decided he just might be the ONE. I orchestrated a plot to get him away from here and train him… make him into an unstoppable force…. Make him into Big Van Vader. Well as soon as Kevin Sullivan was back in the picture, Vader looked different… He looked softer…. He lost his edge! Sullivan kept saying that if Vader didn’t improve that HE would come back… The reason for this is that Vader never say my face…. He never knew that I was the HE that Sullivan was talking about… He did not know I was the one who trained him. Vader was only told the HE made all the decisions around here and to not get HIM angry. When I got back here, I saw Sullivan trying to put Luger out of wrestling… He lost his focus. He lost sight of the goal… He forgot we were trying to rule wrestling! He was just upset that Luger got the best of him in the NWA. So, I had a decision to make… Help Sullivan destroy Lex Luger or stay focused on the goal… CONTROL WRESTLING. I chose the latter. Barbarian and Vader will destroy everything in their path… but I am not done. My stable will grow! We will be PERFRECT!
Woman goes on to say that there is not a tag team in the UWF capable of slowing her team down and she just laughs when Jim Ross brings up the Rock n Roll Express and the World champs, Dr. Death and Terry Gordy. Woman goes on to challenge the Rock n Roll Express to a match next which the Express do accept later in the show.
Angle #4: Dick Murdoch
This week on Power Pro Wrestling from Fort Worth, Texas, North American Champion Ted Dibiase and his manager Sheik Adnan Al Kassie were out laughing about how easy it was for Dibiase at WrestleWar as he simply walked all over Steve Keirn. When Dibiase was done putting down Keirn, he expresses how classless the fans at the Summit were during WrestleWar and Sheik adds that he wouldn’t expect anything more of people from Texas. As the boos start to reign down…. Dibiase begins to ask Jim Ross a few questions…
Dibiase: Hey Jim, what’s the only thing that grows in Texas…. The Crime Rate!
Dibiase: Hey Jim, what do you call a pretty girl in Texas…. Visitor!
Jim Ross: Okay, that will be about enough of that.
Ernie Ladd: Come on Jim, Ted is only talking the truth.
Suddenly, the boos turn to cheers as Captain Redneck, Dick Murdoch comes out to the podium.
Dick Murdoch: Dibiase… you arrogant piece of …
Jim Ross: Now, now Dick…. Remember we are on TV.
Dick Murdoch: Dibiase, I was born and raised right her in Waxahatchie, Tx. Played football for West Texas State. You can say a lot of things about us Texans, but I notice that most people only say them when aren’t around. Dibiase, you got a big mouth, but I bet you’re too much of a coward to say anything now!
Dibiase: Hey Dick, I’m sorry. Didn’t mean to upset you. Actually, do you know what the average West Texas State student gets on the SAT’s…. DROOL!
WHAM…. One big right hand from Murdoch and down goes…
As the crowd explodes, Murdoch simple walks away. Dibiase slowly gets up and now he is fuming.
Dibiase: Murdoch… you NEVER will get away with this. Nobody puts his hands on the Million Dollar Man. You better have eyes in the back of your head you small town hick!
Sheik Adnan is screaming something in Arabic into the mic that nobody understands but this just serves to increase the heat of the situation. These Texans aren’t the most welcoming people you know!
Who Is Getting the Push!
Hacksaw Butch Reed, Terry Gordy and Dr. Death all come out together with their title belts and said they are ready for any and all challengers. They said they didn’t care if it was Hot Stuff Inc, Sheik’s Army, the Freebirds, or whatever Woman wants to call her new group of misfits… they were going to take care of business.
Winners of matches of TV:
Rising Sun. Rick Steiner, Mr. Olympia, Brad Armstrong, Koko Ware, Steve Cox, Eddie Gilbert and Koko Ware and the Rock n Roll Express.
News: Tony Atlas is expected to be back next week after needing time to recover from his injury caused by the Barbarian at SuperBlast
