POST-DRAFT CATCH-UP SHOW
It appears that both Rocky Mountain Championship Wrestling and Stampede Wrestling have added national cable television contracts. So many of the people living near the border have already been seeing both shows through local syndication but now each show will be shown nationally. The fans in Canada can see both shows on TSN, the Canadian equivalent of ESPN while the fans in the United States will be able to see both shows on Sports Channel America.
Meeting between Stu Hart & Blackjack Mulligan
After Stu Hart and Blackjack Mulligan jointly secured these national tv shows, they also entered into an agreement to share talent and will also work together to produce major shows both on cable and on the up and coming idea of pay per view. The first major cable show will be on Halloween Night and will be seen on live tv. It will be a 3 hour spectacular with the first 90 minutes coming from the Denver Auditorium and the last 90 minutes coming from the Corral in Calgary. If all goes well, they will immediately begin working towards the first pay per view titles King of the Mountain on January 5th in the Saddledome.
The Hart Dungeon
In order to train wrestlers for both Rocky Mountain and Stampede, Stu Hart has agreed to train upcoming wrestlers in his “Dungeon.” It is said that his new stable of workers includes
1. a near 400 pound baby bull who is just running over people by the name of Leon White.
2. one tough wolverine who refuses to give an inch by the nake of Chris Benoit.
3. A physically 6’4, 280 pound bodybuilder who so far just tells Stu Hart that he is a Warrior.
THE BRITISH BULLDOGS
The British Bulldogs defeated the Assassins in their Contract vs Mask match which made them the number 1 contenders to the Stampede Tag Team Title last Monday in Calgary. When the masked came off of the Assassins, Assassin #1 turned out to be long time Stampede heel, Kurt Von Hess and Assassin #2 turned out to be Man Mountain Rex. Why they had joined forces is unknown as they high-tailed it out of the ring and the arena. Von Hess has not been seen since and Rex, as usually has remained mute on the situation.
The problem came when Jim Davies went to interview the Bulldogs as we soon found out that when they had dared to put their contracts on the line, they were instantly pursued by another promotion who has remained nameless as of now. Both Dynamite Kid and Davey Boy Smith were blown away by the offer and said they only way they could make that type of money was if they were the champions. So basically, it comes down to this… if the Bulldogs beat the Hart Foundation at the Halloween Spectacular, they will remain in Stampede but if they fail to win the titles, they are going to be leaving Stampede. The crowd immediately began to chant “Please don’t go!”
STAN HANSEN VS BAD NEWS ALLEN
Last we had seen, Bad News Allen had used a chain to knock out Stan Hansen and then he walked away from the ring with Hansen’s cowboy hat. The two were to meet this past week but the match never got started. With Hansen already in the ring, a delivery boy brought a box to the ring and presented it Hansen. When Hansen opened the box, it appeared to be Stan Hansen’s hat filled with some sort of feces. Hansen went absolutely wild and as Bad News Allen was coming to the ring with a big smile on the face. Allen never reached the ring, as Hansen rushed up the ramp and the brawl was on. It became one of the bloodiest scenes in Stampede Wrestling history and was declared a No Contest. We later found out that Stu Hart and Stampede Wrestling refuse to sanction another bout between the two but the hatred between them has gotten so hot that there is going to be a Loser-Leave Town Lights Out Match on the Halloween Spectacular
ROCKY MOUNTAIN TAG TITLE:
It is becoming obvious that Sweet Brown Sugar will not be healthy enough to defend the title with Tony Atlas. He was attacked by the Iron Sheik a few weeks ago with the Persian Club. The Sheik and Nicolai Volkoff have been reminding Rocky Mountain President, Don Slatten, that if they do not defend the belts in 30 days, that, by rule, they must be stripped of the belts. Since Sugar’s injuries were caused by the #1 contenders in a non-wrestling situation, the Lawman has agreed to allow Tony Atlas to find another partner. The Sheik and Volkoff have been complaining about this but the quited down when Slatton threatened to bring the police in and allow them to investigate the assault situation. We will find out who Tony Atlas finds as his new partner on Halloween night.
