    Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling (v3)

    After reading your house shows, I'm convinced you remember more about Dawn of War then anyone else around. Bringing back JR Foley to run the Commonwealth is great! How do you remember all this. Do you have a notebook or somoething. LOL! Great "B" Show in Charleston as you entertained them throughout the night and Harley Race vs Ivan Koloff would have sold all the tickets you had. Awesome "A" show in Charlotte where we start to see the pecking order of MACW. Dillon's group did well here as the Horseman are on the rise. Slater held them off from having a perfect night. Texas Red with the big win over Herc shows he is going to be a big player here in MACW. Ole and the Crippler would have been one stiff match! Great booking.

    Mid-South Wrestling

    Anyone who wishes to see how we got here, check out the Mid-South Wrestling Archives thread as well as the Great American Bash thread JULY 3, 1986 THE COLISEUM ON THE MISSISSIPPI STATE FAIRGROUNDS JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI The show opens after its regular montage of Mid-South stars with a video tape showing Ivan Koloff help Nikita pin Magnum T.A. and become the new NWA World Heavyweight Champion at The Great American Bash in the Superdome. Jim Ross: Welcome everybody to another hour of Mid-South Wrestling coming to you this week from The Coliseum right here in Jackson, Mississippi. I’m Jim Ross and my partner today is none other than NWA President, Cowboy Bill Watts. Bill, everywhere I go, people are always talking about Mid-South Wrestling and this week, it’s no different. What an historic event The Great American Bash was. Cowboy Bill Watts: That’s for sure Jim. As NWA President, I would like to thank the promoters of Western States Wrestling, Continental Championship Wrestling and Mid-South Wrestling for putting on the greatest event in wrestling history. Folks, as you saw in the opening, Nikita Koloff is the new NWA World Champion. (Boos rain down from the crowd in Jackson). I know fans. I know. I feel the same way. Hopefully, Magnum T.A. will regroup and get that title back real soon! Fans who were lucky enough to be at the Great American Bash also know that Nikita Koloff is not the only new champion here in Mid-South Wrestling. As he has been known to do on a few occasions, “Big Cat” Ernie Ladd threw us a bit of a curveball at the Great American Bash by bringing out Bad News Allen to wrestle “Hacksaw” Butch Reed…. That’s right folks, Bad News Allen is back in the NWA after his year-long suspension and with the aid of Ernie Ladd, defeated Butch to become the NWA Mid-South Champion. We will be hearing from both Bad News Allen and Hacksaw Butch Reed a little later in the show. Bill Watts: That’s not all as we have another amazing hour of wrestling instore for everybody. We will have Freebird Michael Hayes in action. The Masked Superstars will tak on the Batten brothers. “Gorgeous” Gary Young will be taking on Brusier Brody. A new team calling themselves the Patriots will be taking on Don Bass and Iron Mike Sharpe. If that’s not enough, our main event is going to be huge. It will be Hacksaw Butch Reed vs Black Bart! Cowboy Bill Watts: That and much more as we will be hearing from many wrestlers who took part in the Great American Bash. Also, fans, don’t forget that next Friday we will be in the Sam Houston Coliseum in Houston, Texas where we will see The Masked Superstars taking on the Mid-South Tag Team Champions, Dusty Rhodes and Blackjack Mulligan along with a 20 Man Over the Top Rope Battle Royal where the winner will get an NWA World Title shot, in New Orleans on July 16 against the Russian Nightmare, Nikita Koloff. We will be right back with our first match. COMMERCIAL BREAK WITH PROMOS FOR HOUSTON AND NEW ORLEANS As we come out of break, Ernie Ladd and the new Mid-South Champion, Bad News Allen are at the interview desk! Ernie Ladd: What did I promise you Bill Watts. I told you Hacksaw Reed’s days at champion were coming to an end. I told you my man was going to be wearing the belt at the Bash. Bill Watts: That’s about all you told us. We all thought it would be your man, One Man Gang coming out to face Butch Reed. Ernie Ladd: One Man Gang? Are you kidding me? As soon as I signed Bad News Allen, I gave him a dozen donuts and sent him on his way. Bill Watts: Well don’t you think you had a responsibility to inform Butch Reed so he could properly train for the match? Ernie Ladd: Train… that’s all Reed does… train, train and train some more. The problem is no amount of training is every going to be enough for him to beat Bad News Allen. You know it! I know it and most of all Butch Reed knows it! Bill Watts: I’ll admit that if you keep interfering in the matches, it might be hard for Butch Reed. Ernie Ladd: Oh here we go again… Cowboy Bill Watts: Do you deny getting in the ring and using that Big Boot of yours against Hacksaw Reed? Do you want to see the video tape? Ernie Ladd: Oh yeah… a doctored video tape from you is just what I want to see. I’ve been around the block with you a time or two already Watts and we all know that one of us is not to be trusted! Cowboy Bill Watts: One us for sure. Well, this week in Houston, Hacksaw Butch Reed will be getting a rematch for his Mid-South title! Bad News Allen: And this will be the last time that Hacksaw Butch Reed will be able to get into a ring! As Ladd and Allen walk away, Watts can do nothing but shake his head at the two as he announces it is time to get to the ring. MATCH The Patriots (DJ Peterson & Todd Champion) defeat Iron Mike Sharpe & “No Class” Don Bass when Peterson connected with a 2nd rope shoulder block on Don Bass The crowd was really behind The Patriots who came out in red and blue trunks with white stars on them. Iron Mike Sharpe tried to play his “strongest” athlete in Canada gimmick but was quickly put down when Champion, 6’6, nearly 300 pounds of chiseled muscle hit the double bicep pose forcing Sharpe to shake the ropes in frustration. Their power, good looks and constant push by Watts and Ross helped the Patriots get over in the first bout in Mid-South Wrestling. COMMERCIAL BREAK WITH PROMOS FOR HOUSTON AND NEW ORLEANS When we come out of break, we see Sheik Adnan Al-Kassie with Jim Ross and he vows revenge on Sgt. Slaughter …. is he ever dares to come back to the NWA. The crowd starts to chant USA, USA which really gets under his skin. When asked where his man Killer Khan was, Sheik almost admits that he had made a mistake but then puts all the fault on Khan who he has decided wasn’t the right man to achieve his goals of controlling the NWA and American Wrestling. He says he has the resources to do just that and that he is now on a world-wide hunt to find the perfect athletes to do just that. In fact, he is here tonight to look at one “Gorgeous” Gary Young. MATCH Brusier Brody defeats “Gorgeous” Gary Young with the Mauling Knee Lift Young may be willing to use any tactic possible to win a match but tonight he was in the ring with a wild man who could not be stopped. Young seemed to be genuinely afraid and tried his best to stay away from Brody but when Bruiser eventually got his hands on him, he beat Gorgeous Gary from pillar to post. As the ref was completing the three-count, Sheik just shook his head and walked away knowing that Gary Young could not be the center piece of his stable. COMMERCIAL BREAK WITH PROMOS FOR HOUSTON AND NEW ORLEANS When we come back from break, we see Freebird Michael Hayes with Jim Ross as Ross takes us to a video from the Great American Bash where Michael Hayes first shakes hands with former Freebird Terry Gordy before putting some cream in his eyes which seemed to blind his former partner. Jim Ross: Michael, I understand that your life has gone through some profound changes recently with the breakup of the Freebirds but I must admit you have gone to far. Doctors are still unsure if Terry will ever regain his vision and will be out of wrestling for some time if not forever. Michael Hayes: So, you think I went too far. So, you think I was wrong. So what! Being a Freebird is a way of life. You live by a code and that code is simple… Freebird’S First. We fight together! We party down on Bad Street USA together. We stick with each through thick and thin. That code was fine for Bam Bam as long as we had his back. As long as we helped him out of every difficult situation he got himself in and trust me brother, there was a whole heck of a lot of trouble with Bam Bam. Then Terry decides tag team titles aren’t what he wants. He wants us to help him win the North American Title. Both Buddy Jack and I did just that. That’s the Freebird way. Then Gordy starts selling out. Not given 100% in our tag matches. Not caring if we won or lost the World Title. So, you see, Michael Hayes didn’t turn on Terry Gordy. Terry Gordy turned on the Freebirds. He found out at the Bash that the only way out of the Freebirds is to be beat out of the Freebirds. Part of me feels bad that he will never wrestle again but then I think back to who broke the code. Trust me on this Jack… Freebird Mania is alive and well. They are lining up down on Bad Street to take Bam Bam’s spot and soon the Freebirds will be whole again. Now let me go to the ring as these ladies are in for a treat as Purely Sexy is ready to give them the show of their lives. Jim Ross: I don’t know what to tell ya fans. Michael Hayes has his own way of looking at things. MATCH Michael Hayes defeats Ricky Gibson with the Running Bulldog Hayes used just enough dirty tactics to come out on top. While Hayes doesn’t always look the best in the ring, he almost always finds a way to come to win. Ross and Watts continued to talk about how disgusting an act Hayes had been apart of when he blinded Terry Gordy and while the doctors didn’t seem to have much hope of him regaining his sight, they hoped for the best as they would love to have him comeback at some point and give Michael Hayes just what he deserved! After the match, we get a back-stage interview with Black Bart who is spitting tobacco and cracking the whip while he not only hypes up tonight’s main event match where he is going to beat that puke Butch Reed but also hyping up the Battle Royal in Houston where dagummitt, he is going to win the thing and get himself a World Title Shot where he is going to defeat Nikita Koloff. COMMERCIAL BREAK WITH PROMOS FOR HOUSTON AND NEW ORLEANS Prior to our main event Hacksaw Butch Reed is with Bill Watts where he has some intense words for Ernie Ladd. Hacksaw Butch Reed: Bad News Allen… I don’t blame you. We all know you’re nothing but a big dummy and you fell for the promises of the “Dirty Cat” Ernie Ladd. He promises you this and he promises you that and it all sounds great. He tells you all the times the sport of Wrestling has wronged his people and that it is time to stand up for yourself. Well, I promise you this Bad News Allen, this week in Houston I’m going to make you wish you never came back to the NWA. Make you wish you never even heard of Ernie Ladd and then I’m going for you Ernie Ladd. You got a long term memory problem. You seem to forget that it was me who put you out the sport of Wrasslin. It was who he slammed you to the mat and ended your career. Now I’m going for you again. This time you won’t be so lucky. I’m going to end more than your career! Bill Watts: Some angry words from Hacksaw Butch Reed but who can blame him. We have all seen what Ernie Ladd can do and this time, his interference stole the belt from Hacksaw Butch Reed and this week in Houston he is coming with two goals in mind. Get his Mid-South title back and get revenge on Ernie Ladd and his man, Bad News Allen. First though, he must try to find a way past the dangerous Black Bart. MAIN EVENT: Hacksaw Butch Reed defeated Black Bart when he followed up a Press Slam with a Top Rope Football Tackle Ernie Ladd and Bad News Allen had come out to ringside during the match and it seemed like they were poised to attack Reed to make sure he never made it to Houston. In fact, there distraction almost cost Reed this match as Bart took control of the match when Reed went to the ropes and dared Allen to get in the ring. Bart came from behind with a big elbow to the back of the head and then went on the offensive. He had Reed in such a bad way that he was confident to climb to the top rope for the as Trash Compacter (double leg drop) but Reed moved at the last second. Reed recovered first and took control for the last time. After the 3-count, Allen hit the ring only to be met with multiple right hands by Reed. Allen fell through the ropes as Reed dared him to come back. Ladd begged him not to and the dastardly duo left for the locker room as Reed sucked in all the cheers from the crowd. Jim Ross: What a night of wrestling it has been folks. Make sure to join us right here on the Superstation next week for another exciting hour of Mid-South Wrestling. Fans anywhere near Houston get your tickets for Friday night at the Sam Houston Coliseum. It is going to be a heck of a night of Wrestling. So long everybody! DARK MATCHES: (Mostly used this week to see how the fans react to some new talent in Mid-South) “Canadian” Ben Bassarab defeats Rotten Ron Starr with a Diving Cross Body Block “The Mighty Yankee” Billy Jack Strong defeats Mike Graham with a powerslam Rocky Johnson defeated “Hollywood” John Tatum with rapid fire punches followed up by a missile dropkick. Bob Roop and Crusher Blackwell wrestled to a DDQ as they brawled out on the floor. Jake Roberts defeated Norvel Austin with the DDT.

    Continental Championship Wrestling

    Huge event for CCW... Nice to see that the moment of the night was caught on video... Here comes the Bullet. Funny when you had Tommy admit to being the Medic. Dusty wins the SE TItle. Looking forward to seeing what's next for him. Very interesting moment as Scott Armstrong comes out to help Prichard. Looking forward to seeing what is next here. Sherri with have to wait a little for the belts but it will be a fun chase. Also looking forward to seeing who here singles wrestle is. Wendell Cooley is CCW! He had to win that one but I never know what changeup you have planned for us. Liked that this one came right down the middle.

    AWA Major League Wrestling

    Great week for the AWA Like the change of pace you threw at us this week. Usually the angles build until the next supercard but we are getting Carlos and Tiget Jeet in a LLT Match in a week. Very interesting. I bet there is something special planned here. Love it. I would't want to be CHarland. Ronnie is one tough dude. Vin Man has been the perfect mid-card guy as he is always entertaining. WOW... very creative writing here with the lawsuit for Mrs. Rainey!! Great booking. Paul Jones seems to have some very nasty friends. Snuka better be careful. As for the Roane Fieldhouse... nice, balanced show that was very realistic for 86. The last two matches sold the tickets but the rest of the show did a great job of entertainng. Haystacks and Ferris would have been slow but very interesting to see ... then we had the brawl with Rugged Ronnie... tag matches, singles matches... the masked Cobra.... Really something for everyone.

    Continental Championship Wrestling

    Great TV show with some much happening! T.A. gets the attention he should as the NWA champ. Nice touch No matter wat T.A. or anyone else does in CCW, the story is Tommy Rich and his whole family. The T-Shirts were a nice touch. Can't wait to see who the mystery man is. I like how Les explaned all the comings and goings of CCW. I am really interested in the Prichard-Lanny bout. I have no idea where you are taking this as they are both huge Jr. Heavyweight stars! Can't wait to see what your creativity has instore for us this time. Again, looking forward to the LLT Match with Cooley and Myers. I think I know where you are going by you have shocked me before. I agree with Sherry... she could be very persuasive. I see her rising to the top real fast! The Super D's might be the favorites for the titles this week. Nice job with the Dusty accent. I found him fun and frustrating at the same time to write for. Looking forward to his bout with Bass. He can't stop fighting the big cowboys! Wow... A clean win for Buddy... His stock is rising! Looking forward to the big show this week. Very, very well done TV show!

    Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling (v3)

    WOW.... It didn't take long for MACW to become MUST READ! Great event that shows some new angles, some ending and some huge matches! Benoit needed some help and now he might have fellow Canadian JR Foley to guide him. Now this is going to be a PARTY! I wonder if Foley will not invite certain people like he did in Stampede in real life... Can't wait to see. Not like the Powers of Pain need much help but when they get the masked man coming down to the ring they might be unbeatable.... Might, I said, as your tag division is HUGE!! Nice wins by Tiger and the Crippler... this gives us some insight into your pecking order which I think is spot on. Wrecking Crew... Midnight ROckers..... Road Warriors....Sawyers.... like I said.... Huge tag division. If there was every a way to get instant heat.... put the U.S. Title on a Russian in the 1980's.... Great booking. And then one of the biggest moments in Dawn of War... Flair over Macho Man with the Birth of the 4 Horseman!!! Loved the show!!

    Mid-South Wrestling

    Memorial Coliseum: Shreveport, Louisiana September 10, 1986 First 6 matches partially shown on Superstation 17 Black Bart defeats Mike Graham by hitting two Texas Trash Compacter. The second one was completely unnecessary, but Bart was here to make a point tonight. After the match he was heard calling out Bruiser Brody and saying he had unfinished business with the Wild Man. U.S. Steel defeats “Hollywood” John Tatum with a Giant Splash. Tatum had been talking a good game before the opening bell but once the action started, he did his best to run and hide. Too bad for Tatum but good for the crowd, Steel eventually caught him and beat him pillar to post. The Mighty Yankee “Steve Strong” defeats Mike George with a powerslam after George was distracted by the Masked “Mighty Yankee” who came down to ringside. Crusher Blackwell defeats Bob Roop with the Airplane Drop in a match that was surprisingly technical. NWA World Junior Heavyweight Title Match Ricky Gibson defeats Eric “Crybaby” Embry by DQ as Rotten Ron Star came down to the ring and attacked Gibson. Embry was frustrated at the crybaby chant throughout the match but was as smug as ever walking out with his title. Starr seemed very pleased with himself but when Gibson regrouped and was ready to duke it out with Starr, the Rotten One headed for the hills. “Gorgeous” Jimmy Garvin with Precious defeated “The Cuban Lover” Ricky Santana with the Brainbuster. Precious came in the ring after the bout and lend over the fallen Santana and had a few choice words for him as she was still frustrated by his “groping” attempt last week. She was waving her hand and her purse as she really gave him a mouthful of hatred. Her and Jimmy had a nice hug on their walk back to the locker room. NWA World Title Match: Ted Dibiase & Dr. Death Steve Williams © defeat The Fabulous Freebirds as Dr. Death hits The Oklahoma Stampede on Buddy Roberts during a time of chaos. The interesting thing here was that as Dr. Death and Dibiase were walking to the ring, Garvin and Precious were leaving and Dr. Death noticed that Precious had dropped her purse during the couple’s embrace. Dr. Death picked up the purse after their exit and gave it to the timekeeper to hold. The camera seemed to pick up Michael Hayes stalling on his way to the ring as he seemed to be looking for something and seemed really frustrated when the ring announcer called for Precious to come out and get her purse as she had accidently dropped it. As for the match, it was full of twists and turns and seemed like it could go either way, but the champs survived in the end. Mid-South Title Match: Title Changes hands if the champ is counted out or disqualified Bad News Allen without Ernie Ladd & Rocky Johnson wrestle to a double count-out in very physical bout. It appeared that Rocky Johnson was going to get back in the ring and win the title as he connected with the Soul Man Shuffle on the arena floor, but Bad News grabbed Rocky’s leg just before him got in the ring which slowed him down just enough to get the double count-out. MAIN EVENT: Briefcase Match: Sheik’s Million Dollar Briefcase is suspended above the ring: Team that gets the briefcase wins the bout and the money. Sheik’s Army (Masked Superstars, Jake “The Snake” Roberts, & Jos Leduc) defeat Hacksaw Butch Reed, Harley Race & The Patriots (DJ Peterson & Todd Champion) in Carl Fergie’s first big match as a referee. Fergie did a good job of maintaining control in a match just made to be chaotic. Each man had their time to shine and as normal in a big 8-man tag match, there were many momentum changes. Interesting thing was that a ladder was placed outside the ring and was needed to get to the briefcase. The finish saw the ladder already set up in the middle of the ring after a failed attempt by The Snake. Reed and Masked Superstar #2 were brawling out on one side of the arena floor and Harley Race and Leduc were fighting on the other side. DJ Peterson shoves Jake Roberts back into the corner and rushed in and connect with a clean shoulder block. Peterson know clocks the fist and goes for a big right hand. Carl Fergie grabs the arm and prevents the punch. Peterson is arguing with Fergie who gets between DJ and the Snake. Fergie appears to shove DJ out of the corner and away from Roberts. WHAM… Peterson trips over the ladder and it falls right on top of him. Todd Champion rushes in to complain but if forced back out of the ring by Fergie. WHAM… DDT by the Snake on Peterson who was wobbly as he got up. Snake picks up the fallen ladder and shoved it into the gut of Todd Champion who gets knocked off the apron. Jake quickly steps up the ladder and scampers up to the top and grabs the briefcase! The Sheik is going wild as Jake Roberts has just saved him a $1,000,000! The Sheik opens it up and takes out a big bundle and hands it to The Snake. The crowd begins to filter out and you can tell that they are a little frustrated by the last two matches but as in most sports, there is always tomorrow. Next Friday Mid-South returns to Jackson, Mississippi and the Fairgrounds Arena for its next big night! MATCHES ALREADY SIGNED FOR JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI The debut of Kendo Nagasaki Mike George vs The Masked Mighty Yankee Grudge Match: Bruiser Brody vs Black Bart Revenge Match: Rotten Ron Starr vs Ricky Gibson Mid-South Title Match: Bad News Allen vs Rocky Johnson in a Steel Cage!

    Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling (v3)

    Great return for MACW. Great booking to get both the tv audience and fans at home hooked early. A 12 Man Battle Royal is a rare match for TV and then we get the main event of Lex and Kabuki to come from this one. Nice idea here. Harley Race in MACW!! Love it. Great promo with him. I also enjoyed the Road Warriors and they are right. Just becasue one of them is the MACW champion doesn't mean that they can't get the tag titles. Sawyers beware! Flair and the Andersons! Nice promos but Savage stole the show. Flair vs Savage is HUGE!! Can't wait for the shoe from the Scope! Great to have you running a territory you are more familar with. Enjoy!

    WOW.... I know that you don't venture into Arizona much but when you do... its an awesome event. Highlights for me included Hansen vs Simmons. I was really interested to see where you went with this one and I think you hit it spot on. Hansen stays on top but the star that Simmons is continues to rise and it takes 2 lariats to get the win. The Masked Avenger has turned!!! Why? We will have to see why. Even if Corny knows something, be better be careful! Could we get the Avenger vs Bam Bam..... PLEASE!! To me, Playboy is PCW... ejoyed this one and its crazy finish. Windham might soon be looking for some gold!! Great show!

    Western States Wrestling

    Sorry to be late to the party but this was an awesome ending to your time in Western States! I wonder if Al Perez will still get that title shot of his choosing in his new home! Nice win. In must have been great for the fans to see Tojo take a beating here!! I love what this game has done for Shaska! Nice job making him a big heel star. Embry shows you that when a heel wins a title, it is hard to get it away from them. The Brotherhood.... Sullivan's goons... Golden Spike.... Perfect for the rough and tumble WSW fans. The Brass Knucks Title on Dutch just sounds good. Jumbo getting the clean win over Slater really elevates him in this game. Can't wait to see what he does in his new home. Funks congratulating anyone, never mind the NWA Tag Champs, would always be TENSE!! Awesome booking... too bad this angle won't continue. BELLY TO BELLY ON OMG... Enough said! T.A. is the Champ! Awesome event. Thanks so much for your time in Wesrern States. I can't wait to see what you do in your new home!

    Mid-South Wrestling

    SEPTEMBER 4, 1986 RAPIDES PARRISH COLISEUM: ALEXANDRIA, LOUISIANA (ON LOCAL AFFIATES IN THE MID-SOUTH TERRITORY) (The show begins with footage from the last week’s show in Baton Rouge where we see Black Bart connecting with a Texas Trash Compacter, Precious hitting Ricky Santana with the “heavy” purse, Michael Hayes also using a purse to hit both Bruiser Brody and Dr. Death and Nikita Koloff hitting Ted Dibiase with the Russian Sickle while TWO referees argued. Then we go to the regular opening montage set to techno music and showing all the big stars of Mid-South Wrestling and finally we go to the set with your host, Jim Ross.) Ross: "Hello and welcome once again to Power Pro Wrestling, sanctioned by Mid-South Wrestling, a member of the National Wrestling Alliance. What a show we had this past Saturday in Baton Rouge. As you just saw, Nikita Koloff did successfully defend his NWA Title against Ted Dibiase but that decision was not without controversy; more on that later. Just two days later at Beach Brawl 86 in Biloxi, Mississippi, Magnum T.A. defeated Nikita Koloff in a Russian Chain-I Quit Match to win the NWA World Title for the third time. Right now, we are going to show you the ending of that match. Just a warning to all of our viewers at home, this match was extremely violent and parents… you may wish to take your child to another room for about 5 minutes. Here it is…. VIDEO TAPE MATCH NWA WORLD TITLE MATCH RUSSIAN CHAIN- I QUIT MATCH Nikita Koloff © vs Magnum T.A. Both men were a bloody mess after about 14 minutes of action….Nikita landed a 'Russian Sickle' on Magnum but couldn't get him to submit, Nikita charged in for another sickle but Magnum side stepped him wrapping the chain around Koloff's neck as his momentum took him over the top rope…..Magnum has the big man hung over the top rope….he won't submit but eventually the big Russian passes out…..the referee checks his arm as if goes down three times…..the referee has to stop the match and award the title to MAGNUM T.A.!! Jim Ross: What a night it truly was for Magnum T.A. Right after the match, Continental Championship Wrestling announcer, Joe Pedicino caught up with Magnum T.A. in the locker room and here is what the new champ had to say. Magnum T.A.: (a bloodied T.A. is surrounded by all his bodies; Dusty Rhodes, Ted Dibiase, Dr. Death, Wendell Cooley etc … and the champagne is flowing) Joe… I did it! I did it. I told you and all my great fans that Nikita was going to have to kill me to make me quit and that I’d do anything to win this title back… By God… he almost did kill me. While I hate Nikita and everything he stands for, I take nothing away from him. He is the toughest man I have ever faced in the ring. Going forward… I promise to defend this belt each and every night against all worthy challengers but anyone who steps into that ring with Magnum T.A. better take a look at the tape of this match… I will do anything to keep this title… Anything! Joe Pedicino: There you have it folks. The new NWA World Champion… Magnum T.A. As the video ends, as we are back with Mid-South Wrestling, Jim Ross takes us to our first commercial break. Commercials + Promos for Shreveport As we come back from break, Jim Ross hypes up Magnum T.A. a little more but also reminds us that this doesn’t change what happened last week in Baton Rouge. He reminds everyone about the Dibiase-Nikita match and some of the other major happenings, including the Mid-South Title Match as Rocky Jonhson did beat Bad News Allen but by count-out and therefore doesn’t win the title and Michael Hayes who struck again as he used that loaded purse again and this time laid out both Bruiser Brody and Dr. Death Steve Williams. Here now to discuss these situations is the NWA President, Cowboy Bill Watts! Cowboy Bill Watts: Hello again Jim. First, a huge congratulations to Magnum T.A. How great it feels to have the NWA World Title back in the hands of a God-faring, great American. Now as for the goings-on here in Mid-South Wrestling…. New week, same story. The chaos in Mid-South just seems to continue week after week. First of all, we need to discuss the NWA World Title Match between Nikita and Ted Dibiase. When looking at the video tape, we see a very controversial decision. First, Ref Alfred Neely, who had been knocked down, actually was correct in his ruling to restart the match. As Dibiase went for the pin attempt, Nikita’s leg was across the bottom rope and the three count was never completed. The problem was that Ivan Koloff was the one who put Nikita’s leg across the bottom rope. This was not seen by either Neely or Ron West who came in to take over officiating duties for the match. While I feel awful for Ted Dibiase, we aren’t going to go back and change the decision of the match. What we are going to do is give Ted Dibiase a rematch in 3 weeks at the Sam Houston Coliseum. This time though, he will face Magnum T.A. for the belt. Jim Ross: That seems fair. What are we going to do about referees who keep seem to be taking a lot of abuse. Bill Watts: Now that’s a different story. First, any wrestler or manager who puts their hands on a Mid-South referee will be immediately suspended. Unfortunately, this has no bearing on the NWA Title match we were just discussing. The wrestling ring is a dangerous place with a lot of big bodies. Sometimes, referees have no place to hide and got run into or knocked down. This is what happened to Alfred Neely in Baton Rouge. Jim Ross: So really there is no solution. Bill Watts: I didn’t say that. We have in fact been looking into this problem and decided that it might be a good idea to use former wrestlers as referees. They might know their way around the ring a little better and avoid some of those physical situations and they also might be able to deal with these situations better when they occur. Jim Ross: Interesting…to do you have anyone in mind. Bill Watts: In fact, we do. This man recently retired from wrestling and decided to enroll in our referee school the same day and he will be referring our first match which I think is ready to go. MATCH U.S. Steel defeats “Rotten” Ron Starr with the Giant Splash As he told us about a month ago, Carl Fergie did return to Mid-South wrestling. This time it is a referee and even Jim Ross had to give him his due as he did a great job. He got right in the face of Starr when he went to the questionable tactics, and he had no problem stepping between the near 400-pound U.S. Steel to back him away from the corner when he was fuming and was going to clock Rotten Ron. Ross did remind us that one match does not make a referee and that he is going to watch this one closely as he still doesn’t completely trust Fergie Commercials + Promos for Shreveport MATCH Jos Leduc with Sheik Adnan Al Kassie defeats “Trucker” Randy Barber with the Bearhug Sheiks entire army (Masked Superstars, Leduc and Jake “The Snake” Roberts) joins him in the post-match interview but before he speaks, Bill Watts comes back out. Bill Watts: Sheik, I see, that even though Hacksaw Butch Reed handed out some your money from the briefcase to the fans, you still carry it around with you every time a member of your Army goes to the ring. Sheik Adnan: Masaa’ alkhayr kafa hakuk, Mr. Bill Watts. Yes, as I have said many times, the money in this briefcase will go to the perfect wrestler. One to guarantee me the greatest stable in wrestling history. With Jake “The Snake” Roberts, The Masked Superstars and Jos Leduc, I’m so close to controlling Mid-South Wrestling but with one more I will be unstoppable. So, I carry this briefcase with me everywhere I go just in case I come across the last piece to puzzle. Oh… and by the way, the small amount of money Hacksaw Butch Reed stole from me was replaced in less then a minute and there is plenty more where that came from. Bill Watts: Perfect. That is all I wanted to know. My problem is that you keep using this briefcase as a weapon. In fact, in Baton Rouge, The Masked Superstars used the briefcase to help defeat the Patriots and in the North American Title Match, again, your army tried to use the briefcase to help Jake Roberts defeat Hacksaw Reed and take the title. Sheik goes to interrupt but … Bill Watts: Sorry Sheik… my turn. So the NWA Board and I have decided this week in Shreveport, it will be your army, against Hacksaw Butch Reed, The Patriots, and Harley Race ….with the Briefcase suspended above the ring. Sheik goes to interrupt again but… Bill Watts: Hold on… and the winner gets the briefcase and the $1,000,000 inside of it! Watts tells the technical crew to take us to break, and tells Sheik, now he can talk… Imagine what language the crowd heard during the commercials from a fuming Sheik!! Commercials + Promos for Shreveport As we come out of break, we see none other than Michael Hayes and Buddy Roberts at the interview desk. Jim Ross: Michael, it seems that you will stoop to any level to injure your opponents inside of the squared circle. Michael Hayes: It seems like I’m damned if I do and damned if I don’t. I go in the ring and kick the living you know what out of someone and I get criticized. I go in the ring and get my butt kicked and you people criticize me. Say I can’t wrestle. I can’t fight. In terms of stooping to levels? I have no idea what you mean. My job, inside that ring, is to do things the Freebird way. That’s right… By any means necessary…. When you sign on the dotted line to step in the ring with the Freebirds… you better be prepared to march down Bad Street U.S.A and stop and the last house on the block and knock on the door and be ready for the fight of your life. Jim Ross: And what do you say about the facts that you are using some sort of pepper spray to blind your opponents or that you are using a loaded purse to knock your opponents out. Before you answer that…some say that purse is the same one used by Jimmy Garvin’s Precious… Is there any truth to that? Michael Hayes: I’ve got two old sayings for ya Jim Ross. First… Finders keepers… losers weepers. Next and most important… Winner Winner Chicken Dinner! Jim Ross: You do have a way with words. Last thing… this week in Shreveport, it will be you and Buddy Roberts for the NWA World Tag Team Title. Michael Hayes: As I just said… Finders Keepers… Losers Weapers. It will be Ted Dibiase and Dr. Death weeping after we take their titles and then we will be partying down in Atlanta GA where we will be with all the pretty chicks till the sum comes up. MATCH Rocky Johnson defeats “Hollywood” John Tatum with the Soul Man Shuffle/Boston Crab Combo A quick interview with Rocky Johnson shows his frustration at how Bad News Allen just walked away from their match in Baton Rouge and took the count-out loss to save their title. Cowboy Bill Watts makes another appearance and tells Rocky that this week in Shreveport, he will get another shot at the Mid-South Title and as last week, Ernie Ladd will be banned from ringside. Also, if Bad News Allen loses by count-out od DQ, the title will change hands. Rocky Johnson is very pleased with these stipulations and shakes the hand of the NWA President. Commercials + Promos for Shreveport As we came out of break, Ernie Ladd and Bad News Allen are with Jim Ross Ernie Ladd: I’ve never seen anything like it! How does a fat man move that quick? That Big Dummy changes the rules each week and then runs and hides before anyone with any sense can question him. Now, again… he breaks the rules by banning me from ringside and then throws in his new idea… the title changes hands on Count-Outs or Disqualifications! Does he do this for Ted Dibiase and Dr. Death? No! Will he do this for Magnum T.A…. I don’t think so. Again… it is a grudge he has against me cause he could never beat me in the ring. Now… did you see that handshake between Frick and Frack when we went to break. It was like “Uncle Tom” Johnson saying “thank ya massa, thank ya. Jim Ross: And what do you sat Bad News about you just walking away from your title match against Rocky Johnson in Baton Rouge? Bad News Allen: As Ernie Ladd said, the fix was in. Rocky Johnson seems to have his own set if rules. He is the only wrestler I know who is allowed to box instead of wrestler. He keeps throwing punch after punch and nothing is done by Bill Watt’s referees. So, Ernie and I decided that if Rocky wants a boxing match, he will not get a shot at my Mid-South WRESTLING TITLE. Rocky Johnson… tonight Bill Watts might be your Master but in Shreveport, I will be your master and you will bow down to me and ask that I don’t end your career. I have spent enough time dealing with Rocky Johnson. The Soul Man may only be a soul after Shreveport. MAIN EVENT: Winner gets a Jr. Heavyweight Title Match in Shreveport Ricky Gibson defeats “Rotten” Ron Starr with a Roll-up while Starr was gloating about his success. Jim Ross: Sorry folks, we are out of time. So long from the Pelican State.

    Mid-South Wrestling

    Riverside Centroplex: Baton Rouge, Louisiana August 28, 1986 First 6 matches partially shown on Superstation 17 SORRY THIS GOT POSTED AFTER THE NWA TITLE SWITCH AT BEACH BRAWL Mighty Yankee vs Rufus Jones gets the crowd into it right away with a brawling double count-out U.S. Steel defeats Rotten Ron Starr with a Giant Splash Black Bart fought off a gallant Norvel Austin and eventually got the pin after the Texas Trash Compacter (double leg drop off the top rop) Jimmy Garvin with Precious defeats The Cuban Assassin (Angel Acevedo) with the Brainbuster. The Cuban Lover, Ricky Santana came to ringside and started to flirt with Precious but give her come credit. She took matters into her own hands and hit him with the “heavy” purse. Mid-South Tag Team Title Match The Masked Superstars © with Sheik Adnan Al Kassie defeat The Patriots (DJ Peterson & Todd Champion) as Masked Superstar #1 locked in the Cobra Clutch on DJ Peterson after Superstar #1 had hit him with the briefcase full of money while the ref was down. The Patriots just were not themselves tonight as it Is obvious that the attack last weekend on TV by Sheik’s Army and the Alaskan Hunters had taken its toll on them. Mid-South Title Match (Ernie Ladd is banned from the building) Rocky “Soul Man” Johnson defeats Bad News Allen by count-out when Allen simply walked away from the match as he rolled out of the ring after Johnson hit the Soul Man Shuffle (a serious punch combo). Bad News grabbed his Mid-South Title and headed to the locker room. The crowd was fuming when the ring announcer said that “The Title Does Not Change Hands.” North American Title Match “Hacksaw” Butch Reed defeats Jake “The Snake” Roberts with Sheik Adnan Al Kassie when he ducked under a briefcase shot by Leduc and game off the ropes and hit a nasty football tackle on The Snake. Just as the ref completes the 3 count, Jos Leduc swings down with all his might with the briefcase at Hacksaw’s head. WHAM… Reed rolled out the way just in time and the briefcase clobbers Jake Roberts right across the chest! GRUDGE MATCH “Dr. Death” Steve Williams & Bruiser Brody defeat The Freebirds (Michael Hayes & Buddy Roberts) by DQ as Michael Hayes once again went under the ring and retrieved a loaded purse and clobbered both Brody and Dr. Death. Buddy Roberts was ready each time and came off the top rope with a knee to the head. Williams and Brody had controlled most of the action in this wild brawl until Hayes used the “weapon. To say that Hayes and Roberts had a tough walk back to the locker room dodging debris would be an understatement, but they gloated the entire way! NWA WORLD TITLE MATCH Nikita Koloff © vs Ted Dibiase had a bit of a controversial ending as Dibiase appeared to have one the NWA World Title after a long, 30-minute bout when he connected with another suplex at a time when ref Alfred Neely had been knocked down. Dibiase covered Koloff which was easily enough time for a three count but there was not ref. Ref Ron West came to the ring and took over referee duties and started the count. By this time, Nikita had recovered enough to kick out. Dibiase hit another big move as he connected with a running knee lift to the head of the Russian Nightmare. Dibiase covers Nikita and Ron West starts the count. 1… 2… Ivan Puts Nikita’s leg across the bottom rope Ref Alfred looks up 3…. The crowd goes wild as West raises the hand on Dibiase. Suddenly Kneely comes over and pulls Dibiase’s hand down. He explains that Nikita’s leg was on the ropes…. The two refs debate the situation as Dibiase listens intently. WHAM… Russian Sickly by Nikita on Dibiase. He covers Dibiase. Kneely with the count 1…2…3! Kneely declares Nikita the winner and for the 3rd time tonight, the fans can’t believe what happened. They will forever talk about the night in Baton Rouge when the NWA World Title was stolen from Ted Dibiase.

    Continental Championship Wrestling

    First for the TV show... It is your interviews that make the show and you are on a roll right now. Bob Armstrong and Tommy Rich's promos were awesome. You could just feel the hatred in the them. Johnny Rich had a point when he said CCW didn't have to show Tommy piledriving hos own mother. Next... Dark Journey and the Electric Blondes had a nice promo hyping up the 4 Corner Match to get s shot at the World TItle at Beach Brawl. That being said, each promo does a great job of hyping up the week's big show or CCW's next major event. This is how to sell those tickts. Now, after reading the early segments with Armstrong and Rich, I though that was the highlight of ths show for me but then.... Woman and Lanny! WOW! Poor Gordy didn't now what to do. I could just picture him blushing when Woman was rubbing or kissing his cheek and then 5 seconds later holding back the vomit when Lanny was doing the same. AWESOME segment. SO well written. I also think we are going to be seeing a lot more of this with the introduction of the Pleasuredome! Can't wait. Nice show in Dothan... T.A. gets sickled by a man in a Mr. Olympia mask.... interesting. As for Beachbrawl.... great major event that keeps things moving in the right direction. Even in defeat, Lanny gets some added attention with the post-match clothesling on Scott A. Nice clean win for Zenk and Taylor. Dark Journey is going to need to get here boys more prepared for next time and I bet there will be a next time. Even in his speciality with the bull rope, Bass needs some help to put down Cooley. Goes to show what you think of Cooley and I agree. He is perfect for CCW. WOW... Johnny was right... That was family business! Families fight with each other, in this csse with a piledriver to Mom, but don't get involved. The person most angry right now is Mrs. Armstrong as Bob gave up $100,000 to now lose his job. AWESOME ANGLE. I bet there is more to this one. Nice wins for Dusty and the World Tag Team champs but I bet the fans were still thinking about Peggy! Dusty must have wondered how he wasn't the biggest star in the arena. He must not have been the booker here. WOW... what a way to win the title back... To have hung Nikita who still wouldn't give up. AWESOME MATCH

    AWA Major League Wrestling

    First... Huge time for the AWA with some big cards coming pretty close together. As for Louisville, it did a nice job of building to the Labor Day Special. I must admit that the match between the Union and Soviets had me on the edge of myself and then the Olympians show up and we go crazy. Awesome ending!!! I was really rooting for TIm Horner even though I knew it was too good to be true. On to the Mid-South Coliseum.... The first match had me very interested as you had built up El Canek so much in the previous big show and now added Larry Z to this crazy feud that I was unsure which way you were going to go. Nice ending with Haystacks taking out The Cobra as this allows the feud to go on! Smart ending to Colon and TIger Jeet as this one is just getting under way. No matter what else is on the card, Priceless vs The Bruise Brothers is going to be one of my favorites. Interesting ending here. Is Cash really hurt? Will Snowman need a new partner as Morrow did when he added Wells. Can't wait to see where this one goes. In real life, if Snowman could have been a better company man like you have made him, he could have had a better career. From what I have seen, he had it all. Great war between Wahoo and Bock... Good choice in the end with the stipulations you put in place where the winner gets a world title shot. Bock would make a better opponent for Steamboat... if he is still champ.... I haven't gotten to that part yet. I try to read match by match or segment by segment then respond. It keeps me on the edge of my seat. To me, the winner of the RnR Express vs Fab Ones or throw in the Midnight Express here also against either one, doesn't matter as it is for tonight only. These teams were so good that they could wrestle every night for 6 months and one would never go over the other. Each night could have a different outcome and the fans would still want more. Unsure if this is your take, but looking forward to the next time they meet. RnR get the win tonight... but tomorrow... who knows? The title bout with Austin and Garvin was one I had no idea which direction you were going. Idol and Garvin both make good champs. Nice ending here with the interference. I think we might get a rematch or Garvin finds some firends and we get a big tag match. WOW.... WHAT A TAG BATTLE. I guess Hennig's mouth couldn't cash the check it wrote. I bet Adias is fuming.... but... is there anything he could do about it. I bet we find out. Really well written main event with Steamboat being right where he should be in the end.... the AWA World Champ. Steamboat vs Bock will be a classic. AWESOME SHOW!!
