    AWA ALL-STAR WRESTLING

    VICTORIA PAVILION DECEMBER 2, 1984 Chief Joe Lightfoot vs Man Mountain The much smaller Lightfoot is able to catch Man Mountain with a running knee lift for the win. MR. X with John Foley vs Ben Bassarab The nearly 300 pound Mr. X is able to get the win against Bassarab by hitting a big power slam after Foley crushed Bassarab in the back with some sort of walking stick while Mr. X distracted the ref. Jos Leduc vs Moose Morowski This one was a bit strange as Leduc kept verballing assaulting Morowski and egging him on. It was like Leduc wanted the old heel Morowski to show up, but Moose stayed true to his new technical side. Let’s just say that it didn’t work out so well as Leduc roughed up the old timer here with the win coming by the way of a backbreaker after Luduc hit Moose with a low blow. After the match, the crowd erupted as Moose attacked Leduc in the aisle. This was the old Moose the fans were used to seeing except they loved it now as he was using heel tactics against the hated Leduc. Eventually the two brawled their way behind the curtain and out of site. Brian Blair & Sweet Brown Sugar vs The Outlaws (Black Bart & Cowboy Ron Bass) This one was a violent 15-minute battle that saw the heels get the win when SBS came off the top rope with a cross body block but was hit with a huge uppercut by Bart. Bart then finished off Sugar with a big leg drop while Bass made sure Blair couldn’t make the save. After the match, things turned ugly as the Outlaws reached for their bull ropes and whipped Sweet Brown Sugar and Brian Blair. BRITISH COMMONWEALTH MIDDLEWEIGHT TITLE MATCH Dave Morgan © VS Gamma Singh with John Foley Before the match, John Foley grabbed the house mic and told Morgan that he could save his title and the butt whipping he was about to get if he did the patriotic thing and acted loyal to the British Crown by turning on these colonists and joining Foley and his Empire. Morgan declined and the fight was on. We started with some nice chain wrestling that saw both wrestlers show off some good technical skill. When Morgan proved to be a little better and get the advantage, Foley brought the match to the gutter by helping Singh at every turn. Seeing that his buddy was not getting a fair shake, Chef Joe Lightfoot returned to the ring area. Lucky for Morgan this happened just in time. Foley had a chair and was about to use it on Morgan but Lightfoot pulled it away from him and to the delight of the fans, he rammed the chair into the gut of Foley. As for the match, Morgan regains control and hits a second-row shoulder tackle for the win! Morgan thanks Lightfoot and the two walk out together. Stampede Tag Team Title Match The Hart Foundation (Bret Hart & Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart) vs “Dr. Death” Steve Williams & Mr. Saito with Bobby Heenan Awesome match that had the fans on the edge of their seats. It looked like we were about to have new champs as Dr. Death connected with the spear on Bret but Neidhart made the save. This led to all 4 in the ring and we had complete chaos. It was here that Heenan climbed up to the second rope… WHAM…. Bret Hart hits Heenan with a flying elbow. WHAM… Dr. Death connects with a second Spear on Hart as soon as he turned around. It looks like Hart has no chance to survive this pin attempt as Saito and Neidhart are battling out on the floor so there is nobody left to make the save. DING… DING… DING. The bell sounds as the referee declares this match a time limit draw. The fans breathed a huge sigh of relief as they were about to see their favorite son go down in defeat. 10,000 TWENTY MAN OVER THE TOP BATTLE ROYAL While the 10 grand would be huge, so would the guaranteed future Stampede Heavyweight shot that is guaranteed to the winner. This match saw feuds from earlier in the evening continuing. The Hart Foundation and Dr. Death and Saito pick up right where they left off just a few minutes ago. Foley’s goons, Gamma Singh, Mr. X and Butch Moffit are making quick work of all the middleweights in the ring and give a good beating to the champ, Dave Morgan. Leduc and Morowski square off as do the Outlaws and Sweet Brown Sugar and Brian Blair. This leaves new fan favorite, Jimmy Garvin plenty of time to stay out of the action. Eventually it is down to Leduc, Mr.X and Garvin. We get the quick agreement by Mr. X and Leduc to join forces but they seem to forget that Garvin is not alone. In fact, that loaded purse of Precious comes in handy as both Mr. X and Leduc get clocked and Garvin is able to push the woozy duo over the top rope for the win. Garvin struts as only he can and gives Precious a huge kiss as the fans go wild as it like the prodigal son has returned to Canada. LOSER-LEAVE TOWN-STEEL CAGE MATCH FOR THE STAMPEDE HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE WITH JIMMY GARVIN AS THE SPECIAL GUEST REFEREE Tito Santana © vs Sgt. Slaughter with John Foley This match has it all… The hated heel… Sgt. Slaughter! The hated manager… John Foley! The stipulations… The Loser must leave Stampede Wrestling! The Cage! The Title on the line! And of course… The Jimmy Garvin as the Special Guest Referee! In this match, you pin your opponent and then escape through the open door before the ref counts to 10. We get about 20 wild minutes where each wrestler has been bloodied by the cage and each pins the other, but neither were able to escape through the open gate. Up until the end, Jimmy Garvin has played this straight up as the referee, but you can tell that Foley is getting on his nerves as we keep hearing Foley insulting Garvin. The finish Tito knocks Sarge into the corner with a big flying burrito where we see Foley push a pair of brass knucks through the mesh to Slaughter. Tito comes to the corner and lifts Slaughter up… WHAM! Slaughter clobbers Tito with the Brass Knucks and he is down in the center of the ring. Slaughter goes for the cover…. 1….. Garvin really slow counts this 2…. As Garvin’s hand starts to come down, it stops. Garvin quickly stands and drops an elbow onto the back of Slaughter’s head. Garvin then drags Slaughter up by the hair and hoists him up. WHAM! Brain Buster…. Slaughter is now out in the center of the ring. Garvin now drags Tito on top of Sarge! 1.2.3. The fastest count in history! The fans are loving this even though it was one of the biggest heel moves in history. Foley is irate and when the door opens, he rushes at Garvin. It looks like the manager is in full wrestler mode and is ready for the attack. Garvin and Foley are face to face with fists up when all of a sudden, they both break out in laughter and hug each other. Garvin sees Tito starting to stir so he lifts him up and gives him a Brain Buster. Foley has retrieved the Stampede Title and lays it across Santana who is on the canvass next to Sarge. Garvin and Foley leave the ring as the boos are raining down from the crowd. To rap this up, Garvin helps Santana win the match and Foley’s #1 guy, Sgt. Slaughter is out of Stampede Wrestling. Foley and Garvin hug it out in the ring and then drop Tito on his head before leaving together. Oh, and don’t forget, Gorgeous Jimmy Garvin, won the Battle Royal tonight giving him a guaranteed Stampede Heavyweight Title Match. Wow… things are heating up! NORTH AMERICAN TITLE MATCH Paul Orndorff vs Bad News Allen with Bobby Heenan When else would a Stampede Heavyweight Title Loser- Leave Town Match with a Special Guest Referee not be the main event…. Maybe never but tonight is all about the return of Bad News Allen and Stampede Wrestling to the Victoria Pavilion for the first time in a year. The last time we were here, Bad News Allen angered the fans so much that a huge riot broke out and he has done nothing to stop the fans hatred towards him over the past 12 months. As this match is about to begin, we see Calgary police officers come out and surround the ring and they will stay there for the rest of the event. Those who were in attendance said you have never heard such boos as when Allen came to the ring on this night with Bobby Heenan. Orndorff’s ovation was equally loud but it is not like he is the most popular wrestler ever to be in Stampede. Again, this was a result of the fans anger to Bad News Allen. For the first time in a long time, Bobby Heenan does not interfere in the match in a long time. Some say this was because he was afraid of Orndorff who put him in a neck brace the last time the two were in the ring together as Paul crushed him with a chair shot to the head. Other’s say that Bad News Allen gave Heenan orders not to interfere to make sure there was not disqualified. Everyone, including Bobby Heenan, knows not to cross Bad News. As for the match… only one way to describe it…. A war with neither combatant giving an inch. Somehow Bad News was able to kick out from a piledriver but the same can’t be said about the champ after Allen hit him with a reverse thrust kick (later called the Ghetto Blaster) to the back of the head. It is said that there were actually people in the stands who broke out in tears when the ref made the three count and Bad News Allen became the new champ! WHAM…. A masked man with the words Bounty Hunter hits the ring and connects with his own thrust kick to Bad News Allen head. This man is all over Bad News Allen but it only lasts a few seconds as the police from outside the ring rush in and secure this mystery man. As Allen gets to his feet, he sees this man being escorted away. The remaining officers surround Allen and escort him also. This one was for his own protection as the fans were raining down objects on the champ. Ed Whalen: What an event folks. We have a new North American Champion in Bad News Allen , Jimmy Garvin goes out and wins the $10,000 Battle Royal and earns himself a Stampede Title Shot and then he ……, and finally some masked man attacks Bad News Allen attempting to collect the bounty that has been placed on Allen by who knows who. WOW…. We have so much left to discuss but we are out of time. So, in the mean-time and in the in between time, that’s it… another edition of Stampede Wrestling.

    Great event... Nice job putting it in the Mid-South Coliseum. I was always a big fan of Prichard and it was nice to see him win the Battle Royal... big things might be coming for the Doctor. Zhukov means trouble in TNT language The Movement is everywhere! SD... I mean Roosevelt is moving up the ladder. Wells is going to want some revenge. The Oates brothers just needed a little help in getting a push somewhere and Gene has given it to them! Interested to see how far they go. I have enjoyed the feud with Adonis/Murdoch vs Sweetan and Brooks but think you made a great choice in leaving the belts on Adonis and Murdoch. Sweetan is almost done and Brooks is a great mid-carder but Adonis and Murdoch are BIG TIME! Sonny King is the perfect addition to the Movement Colon-Ayala... Haven't seen much of their work but what I have... A Brass Knuckles Match was perfect for them. Hope Ayala comes back for more. It took all 4 members of Solidarity to beat the Fab Ones but it worked. I wonder if this means the Fab Ones are coming for revenge or leaving TNT? Excited to see. Hennig vs Tully.... Instant classic. Hate to see Tully go but I am pretty sure I can guess where and it is for the good for all involved! Dibiase vs Landel... another match that I could watch all over and over again. I think Buddy is someone who could be our next champ! The Main Event was very well done. The entire time I was reading it, I was thinking there could be a double-cross coming. I can't help but think that way. We are in Memphis and you never know.

    Piper may need some help with all the Freebirds after him. Nice job developing Zenk... he is primed for something big! Ragin and Ravishing might be future champs. Nice job putting them together

    Liked the idea of the Bulldogs and the Studd Stable going at it. I wonder if there will be problems between Eddie Gilbert and Kevin Sullivan for walking out on him. Mike Graham vs Terry Taylor would be an awesome match. Both had some great mat skills

    Really cool image to begin the show. Did you make it? If yes... how? Reed in the Movement....can't wait to see where this goes next. Fun claw vs claw match... Kerry should make a good champ but he seems to have the ire of The Hammer. This will be a nice feud. Bock finds a way to survive and now Brody has to deal with more goons if he is ever going to get that belt. Nice set up to another interesting angle. The splash scene in the cage was vintage Jimmy Snuka... he seems to have taught the Kid well. Wonder what is next for the Midnight Express. I thought they would have made a great match for the Movement.

    Great show. I will be honest, with reading so many shows, I often get mixed up on what is going on where. This is the perfect way to get us caught up and ready for the big event. I agree with Rain... Who is Lawler's partner?

    AWA ALL-STAR WRESTLING

    ALBUQUERQUE CIVIC AUDITORIUM NOVEMBER 28, 1984 KENDALL WINDHAM VS KIM DUK This is Kendall’s first time on a big card and you can tell he is a bit nervous but that is to be expected by any high schooler in front of nearly 8,000 fans. Put the nerves aside, this match sells. The All-American boy next door vs the evil, grizzled veteran from one of those countries we love to hate in the 1980’s wrestling scene. Kim Duk does a great job of bringing the youngster along in this bout. We see a few momentum changes in the match but Duk really puts Windham over with his bumping and selling. In the end, Windham hits the Running Bulldog and gets the three count but for those in the know, Kim Duk has really earned his keep here with this match. “HOLLYWOOD” JOHN TATUM VS MIKE GEORGE One of the interesting things here was that Tatum seemed to begin his entrance to the ring while Windham was still celebrating his victory with the fans. Neither seemed willing to give way to the other and some words seemed to be exchanged. The referee coming in for the second match seemed to calm the situation down but maybe these two are headed for their first angles in Rocky Mountain Wrestling. Tatum’s expectations have risen in Rocky Mountain Wrestling of late since Eric Embry left for another promotion. First thought of as a jobber, Tatum has filled in admirable with the sudden loss of Embry and has been magic on the mic. The Rocky Mountain agents have given Tatum a few wins and a few interviews to see the fans reactions and he has delivered. This “Hollywood” persona has drawn a lot of heat from the fans and Tatum continues to play the arrogant, spoiled heel to a tee. As for the match, it is a carbon copy of the first except this time, it is Mike George putting over Tatum. The experienced George really takes it to the frightened heel in the beginning as the sound of the jobs echoed through the arena. One thing Tatum is really doing well is that he is getting on everyone's nerves with his constant whining. In the end, Tatum uses a low blow to take the advantage and then he finishes of George with a flying elbow and a grab of the tights on the pin. “OUTLAW” JOEL DEATON VS RUFUS R. JONES The rugged Deaton vs the rugged Rufus R Jones means this one will forget the technical stuff and be a brawl from the get go. Unfortunately, the actions spills out of the ring and the two continue to fight and seem to care less about getting back in the ring as we get a Double Count-Out. It is not that these two had so much heat before the bout but their fighting styles has caused this one to build almost instantaneously and they are heading for some rematches down the road. For those in the know, this means a lot to both of their careers as the higher ups in Rocky Mountain Wrestling are trying to find out if Deaton can draw heat from the crowd and if Rufus R. Jones can find enough charisma to get over with the crowd. This one could mean they both get contracts in 1985 or that one or both may be on the unemployment line. JOHNNY RICH VS ONE MAN GANG Johnny Rich has been the giant killer of Rocky Mountain Wrestling but this is different…. It is One Man Gang. Rich gave it about 30 seconds before being dominated by OMG. It seems like Rich has meet his Rocky Mountain ceiling and he is never going to reach the top and OMG is now the newest monster heel who will be tough to stop! The end game with a Running Powerslam and it seems like Gang has taken a page out of the books of King Kong Bundy and he demanded a 5 count. The people were in awe of the five count and Gang and wonder if Ernie Ladd’s Army can ever be stopped with his as the enforcer. THE YELLOW DOG & “DIRTY” DICK SLATER VS THE ZAMBOUI EXPRESS The Zamboui Express may have been crushing everyone is Rocky Mountain Wrestling sense they hit the scene as part of Ladd’s Army a few weeks ago but Slater and this masked man in a yellow jump suit vow to change that. They both seem to have some real loyalty to Blackjack and are here to help fight this war by any means necessary. The Yellow Dog comes out with a Dog Collar and a steel chain around his neck and when he hits the ring, he takes the chain and starts swinging it at the Express. Most of the crowd was shocked at how fast these two big men were as they dropped to the floor. As for the match, it was obvious that Slater and the Yellow Dog were not the least bit intimidated by the Express. At one point the Express had the Yellow Dog trapped in the corner and were really going for the mask. We have heard Ernie Ladd demand to know who he was and it seemed like Elijah Akeem and Kareem Muhammed were doing their best to solve the mystery. Unfortunately for them, Yellow Dog made the escape and Slater hits the ring and is throwing big right after big right. We are now going 2 on 2 and the ref lost some control. It was here that the Yellow Dog grabbed that chain he had earlier and wrapped it around his fist and used it for a weapon. Unfortunately for the Yellow Dog, the ref caught some of this and called for the bell. Unfortunately for the Zamboui Express, the Yellow Dog did not care and continued to pound on his opponents. This one just seems very personal and the announcer, Cowboy Bob really want to know the history between the Yellow Dog and Ernie Ladd so he can understand what is going on here. ALBUQUERQUE STREET FIGHT: DORY FUNK JR. VS LARS ANDERSON While this battle has been brewing over the past few weeks over the idea of who’s family is the top in the industry, this Street Fight is much more technical then most. While there are plenty of big haymakers that are being thrown around, Dory continues to work on the lower body of Lars to set hem up for the Spinning Toe Hold while Lars is focused on the shoulder area and wants to hit the big Shoulder Breaker. In the end, we get Dory coming on top as Lars is forced to submit as Dory is like a spinning top with that Toe Hold. ROCKY MOUNTAIN TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH THE IRON SHIEK & NICOLAI VOLKOFF © VS THE USA EXPRESS (HACKSAW DUGGAN & TONY ATLAS) Wow…. Good vs Evil at its best and it starts from the entrance of the wrestlers. Hacksaw is waving the American flag and Atlas is circling the ring shaking hands while the entrance for the champs sees Volkoff carrying the flag of the Soviet Union and the Sheik comes carrying the Persian Clubs. When Volkoff goes to sing the Russian National Anthem, all hell breaks loose as Duggan attacks. Almost 25 minutes of a brawl later, we see Hacksaw hit the football tackle on Volkoff and he goes for the pin. 1… 2… WHAM! The Sheik makes the save as he comes crashing down on Duggan with the Persian Club right to the back. The ref calls for the bell as Atlas hits the ring and quickly scoops up the Sheik and Military Press’s him right to the floor. As the ring announcer declares Atlas and Duggan the winners, the crowd explodes only to have their cheers change to boos when he went on to say that since the win was by DQ, the titles do not change place. Duggan looks to be a little hobbled but he should be ok as Atlas and Hacksaw stand in the center of the ring with the champs looking up from the floor. It is obvious that this battle will continue. ROCKY MOUNTAIN TITLE MATCH BLACKJACK MULLIGAN © VS “THE BIG CAT” ERNIE LADD” This is the rematch that everyone has been wanting for and it doesn’t disappoint. With Ladd and Blackjack getting up there in age, this main event goes just over 15 minutes. Ladd shoved Mulligan into the ref and he went down hard. With Mulligan and the ref both down, we see Ladd start pounding his toes on the floor. Most people are speculating that he is loading up that big size 22 to kick Mulligan right in the face. Ladd picks up Mulligan and whips him into the ropes. WHAM! Ladd connects with the Big Boot and Mulligan is out! The Big Cat covers the champ! 1… 2… 3. The crowd can’t believe it, Ladd gets the win and is once again, the Rocky Mountain Champion!

    I am digging this Hogan angle here! I wonder how long Hulk will allow his brother to mess up the outcome of the matches. Piper vs Gordy is interesting to me. Too different styles and we will just have to wait to see what happens here.

    AWA ALL-STAR WRESTLING

    THE PRE-SHOW UPDATE FOR DECEMBER 2: THE RETURN TO VICTORIA PAVILION WITH ED WHALEN Ed Whalen: Hi everybody and away we go with another edition of Stampede Wrestling and we have another ring-a-ding-dong-dandy of a show. I am Ed Whalen coming to you from the CHCT Studies in downtown Calgary, but tonight’s show will be a little different as we are going to get all of you caught up on all of the goings-on here in Stampede for the big one on December 2, right here in downtown Calgary and the Victoria Pavilion. HYPE: This is the first time in a year that Stampede will be allowed to return to Victoria Pavilion following the riot of 1983 caused by Bad News Allen and his comments that he hoped the Mongolian Stomper’s son died after their wild tag match. Since then Allen has had a crazy year where he defeated The Stomper, Nikita Koloff, and Stan Hansen in loser-leaf town matches. He also challenged for the North American Title where he suffered his only loss in 15 months in a controversial decision against Hulk Hogan. He had roughed up Hogan so bad that Hogan has not been seen in Stampede Wrestling since. MAIN ANGLE: Bad News Allen- $10,000 Bounty-North American Title Match Allen recently set his sights on Paul Orndorff and the North American Title and the match is set for December 2, 1984. Almost as soon as Allen called out Orndorff, a letter was found in the locker room that place a $10,000 bounty on the head of Bad News Allen. Allen has been like a caged beast of late, crushing anyone who dares to come after him and the bounty. Allen is convinced that it is the North American Champion who placed the bounty on him. He feels that this could be Orndorff’s only chance to safe his title. Over the past few weeks, Allen has taken to the ring on TV where he has called each match “The Bounty Challenge” and he basically allows anyone to come to the ring to earn the money. So far it has only been jobbers who have tried to earn the money and by the end of the match, these poor slobs wishe that hadn’t tried as they are stretchered out. Paul Orndorff has denied the idea that it was he who placed the bounty on Allen and has successfully been defending the North American Title all over Albertan and Manitoba. Orndorff has also been on a roll ever since he was double crossed by Bobby Heenan, as he not only won the North American title but took out the Nature Boy, Ric Flair in doing so. While these are good things, it brought Bad News Allen and Bobby Heenan together with a common goal… to take out Paul Orndorff. With Allen angry about the bounty and with Heenan as his manager, most around Stamped believe that Orndorff will be lucky to escape this bout with his belt as they have never seen Bad News Allen this angry. ANGLE #2: Sgt. Slaughter with John Foley vs Tito Santana for the Stampede Heavyweight Title in a Loser-Leave-Town Match with a Special Guest Referee. The feud between Slaughter and Santana goes back prior to the arrival of John Foley when Slaughter’s then manager, Sheik Adnan Al-Kassie tried to strangle Santana by tossing him over the top rope with a bull-rope tied around his neck. As the Sheik ran from Stampede and the law, John Foley has come in and taken over his stable and the situation has just gotten worse. Foley has declared Slaughter his #1 and uses his entire Army to help Sarge in his battle against Tito. John Foley has angered a lot of people around Stampede with his Anti-Canadian propaganda as he continues to criticize them for their lack of respect to the Crown and their colonial attituded. He is constantly using the numbers game to his advantage and has attacked Santana numerous times with a 3-1 Pearl Harbor Style where Butch Moffit and Gama Singh have joined Slaughter in the attack. A few weeks ago, the situation appeared even more dire as Jimmy Garvin, the notorious heel, game to the ring during one of these attacks. Instead, it was Garvin who surprised everyone when he helped Santana. Together, they gained control of the ring. When asked why he helped Santana, Garvin said that it was more the fact that he as a Canadian couldn’t stand listening to Foley put down these good people anymore. On Halloween, Tito was able to defeat Sarge for the Stampede title and the rematch has been set for December 2. Since Santana got the win, the heat between Foley’s Army and Santana has grown hotter and hotter with numerous attacks but Garvin has been there each time to aid the champ. Stu Hart stepped in last week on TV and said that this situation has gotten out of control and has decided that a special referee is needed but he would allow the wrestlers to choose. His idea was that Foley could pick one candidate and Santana could pick one candidate and last night in Edmonton, these two men wrestled with the winner becoming the special guest referee. For Santana, the choice was easy as he picked Jimmy Garvin. Foley decided to go with his newest stable member… the nearly 300 pound Mr. X. The man in the black mask has been just crushing each and every opponent since his arrival and looks to be unstoppable. With the help of a loaded purse shot by Precious, Garvin somehow managed to beat Mr. X and so we are set. It will be Santana vs Slaughter in a Loser Leaf Town Steel Cage Mage with Jimmy Garvin as the Special Referee. ANGLE #3: The Stampede Tag Team Titles While the say that you can’t keep a good man down, the opposite may be true here in Stampede as the bad guys are continuing their rise to the top. Just about a month ago, it looked like Bobby Heenan had hit rock bottom. When Flair headed south to the U.S., Heenan’s once proud stable had crumbled to nothing. Now, not only is he associated with Bad News Allen, he went out a signed a monster of a tag team…. “Dr. Death” Steve Williams and Mr. Saito. These two have just run roughshod over everyone for the past month and have earned the title shot at the huge December 2nd. Again, this will be Heenan’s chance to get revenge on one of his former stable mates. Not only is Bad News Allen trying to take out Paul Orndorff, but this new monster tag team has the chance of taking the belts from Brett Hart and Jim “the Anvil” Neidhart. Remember, Bret Hart did have that stage of rebellion where he turned on his own father and joined the Heenan stable. The champions have had an emotional roller coaster of late as they recently defeated the British Bulldogs in their last ever match in Stampede. The Harts and Bulldogs have had some wars over the past year or so but it was always like one of those family feuds where you fight it out but in the end, you love one another. Since this battle with the Bulldogs, the Harts have been defending their belts all over Canada, but some say it looks like they may have lost a little focus. One thing is for sure, if they are not focused against Dr. Death and Saito, they will not only lose their belts but may also get hurt! ANGLE #4: The British Commonwealth Middleweight Title: Dave Morgan recently arrived from Britain with the belt and has been defending it all over the Prairie Provinces. This is right up Stu Hart’s ally as he is a true fan of the technical stuff. The arrival of Morgan also brought in some of the best middleweights in the world as they view this as a stepping stone to the AWA Jr. Light Heavyweight title currently help by the Super Ninja. While newcomers like Chief Joe Lightfoot and Brian Blair will have to wait for their title shot, it will be Gamma Singh getting a crack at Morgan on December 2. Singh is managed by John Foley who is fuming that a Brit like Morgan has sided with the colonist and refused to join his army. Morgan has been under attack of late and has been the victim of some 3-1 beat downs by Foley. One thing for sure is that on December 2, the Brit, Dave Morgan will have the support on the crowd but is that enough to stop the dirty tactics of John Foley and his man, Gamma Singh. ANGLE #5: The Return of Jos Leduc The powerful Jos Leduc has returned to Stampede after a 4- month absence and he has set his sights on Moose Morowski. Morowski, the most traveled Canadian wrestler in history, recently arrived in Stampede Wrestling as a changed man. For decades, he has terrorized his opponents, the fans and even announcers but he says he knows he is nearing the end and wants one last chance to show the fans his true ability. It took some time but he has won them over. This change of heart has drawn the ire of Jos Leduc. Leduc calls Morowski a phony and that he can’t stomach someone with Morowski’s career bowing down to the fans which he calls the ingrates of the sport. One thing is clear, Leduc will either put Moose out of wrestling or Moose will really win the fans over on December 2. ANGLE #6: Sweet Brown Sugar & Brian Blair Want the Outlaws Ron Bass and Black Bart recently arrived in Stampede and have been tearing it up as the rough and nasty Outlaws. Their black hats, tobacco filled mouths, and their cracking of the bull whip have intimidated some here in Stampede but there is one team that is not running from the Outlaws and that is Sweet Brown Sugar and Brian Blair. Last year, the Outlaws were terrorizing Florida and Sugar and Blair were where the victims of some real questionable tactics. When Eddie Graham eventually had enough and sent the Outlaws packing, they arrived in Rocky Mountain Wrestling. Sweet Brown Sugar was so set on revenge that he followed them to Denver where he found a new partner, Tony Atlas. Atlas and Sugar brawled with the Outlaws all over the Southwestern parts of the U.S. until the Iron Sheik and Nicolai Volkoff won the Rocky Mountain Tag Titles. Being friends with the Sheik and Volkoff, the Outlaws headed out of town in search of the Stampede Titles. Once again, Sweet Brown Sugar followed them. This time he called his old friend, Brian, to see if he was interested on going after the Outlaws again and he jumped on the opportunity. So, here we are… Dec. 2…. Sweet Brown Sugar & Brian Blair vs the Outlaws… again… but for the first time in Calgary. This one is really getting personal. OTHER BOUTS FOR DECEMBER 2, 1984 IN CALGARY AT THE VICTORIA PAVILION Chief Joe Lightfoot vs Man Mountain Rex MR. X with John Foley vs Ben Bassarab $10,000 TWENTY MAN OVER THE TOP BATTLE ROYAL SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT Jan 6, 1985, Stampede Wrestling will return to Calgary and Victoria Pavilion for the Royal Stampede. The Main Event for this bout will be a 30 Man Gauntlet Match where the last man standing will receive $25,000 and a guaranteed North American Title Shot! The way this will work is that two wrestlers will start and every 3 minutes another wrestler will enter the ring. Ed Whalen: Folks, if you are anywhere near Calgary on December, get to Victoria Pavilion. It is going to be a ring-a-ding-dong-dandy of a show. We are out of time for now, so, in the meantime and in the in-between time… that’s it, another edition of Stampede Wrestling.

    Nice lead in show to Starrcade. I love your Bill Watts interviews. You can just taste his hatred for Corny. Seeing Patera slam Kamala with ease would be a site to see. Reed vs Iceman with those stipulations is the one I am looking forward to the most. Reed in the Movement could be huge. If he joined in earnest, the Movement might be unstoppable but if he joined it, it could also be its downfall. So many options... must be good to be you

    November 16, 1984 A montage of wrestling and rodeo falls set to music introduces the show. Broadcasting to our local affiliates in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, the Dakatos, TSN all across Canada and Sports Channel America throughout the United States,the American Wrestling Association proudly presents Rocky Mountain Wrestling, coming to you from the KCNS Studio in Denver. From peak to peak and valley to valley we welcome you Rocky Mountain Pro Wrestling. I am Cowboy Bob Tallman and we are coming to you tonight from the KCNS studio in Denver, Colorado. With me tonight is the President of Rocky Mountain Wrestling, the Lawman, Don Slatton. Don, I am told, you have a huge announcement for us tonight. SHORT VERSION: 1. Replay of last week’s brawl between Lars Anderson and Dory Funk Jr. During the hour, we hear from both of them in anger-filled promos where each claims to be from the superior wrestling family. We find out that these two will meet at Thanksgiving Thunder in the Albuquerque Civic Auditorium 2. The USA Express (Duggan & Atlas) get a win against two jobbers and in the post-match interview, we find out that they will get the Rocky Mountain Tag Title shot at Thanksgiving Thunder against the champs, The Iron Sheik and Nicolia Volkoff. Later in the show, the champs come out to protest as they believe the USA Express has yet to accomplish enough in Rocky Mountain Wrestling to warrant a title shot but this argument falls on deaf ears. 3. Grizzly Boone stops by the interview area for a pre-match interview and once again expresses his anger at Ernie Ladd for kicking him out of the Army and also for the beating he took from the Zamboui Express. He explains that Ladd’s Army is itching for a beating and with his size, he is just the man to do it! Boone than goes on to squash some jobber to the delight of the fans. As soon as the match was over, the crowd was shocked as One Man Gang hit the ring and attacked Boone. With the advantage of the surprise attack, this melee was all Gang. When it was over, Boone was laying in the center of the ring and the crowd was stunned. All of a sudden, Ernie Ladd came out to introduce the newest member of his Army…. The African Queen…. One Man Gang! Ladd laughed as he wondered if Grizzly Boone still thought he had the size to give Ladd and his Army the beating that they deserved! 4. In other matches, Kendall Windham gets a nice win against local talent as this high school student continues to impress. “Hollywood” John Tatum continues to build his character with a nice win over Verlon Biggs. Tatum is becoming more and more confident. We see newcomer, Joel Deaton take down the big Plowboy Frazier with a hug running lariat. Deaton seems to be the newest bad cowboy to come to Rocky Mountain Wrestling.
