    Exciting week coming up for the NWA and a great way to kick it off with more good news about the NWA Womens Title Match Good use of the TV show to hype up the big event. You have outdone yourself this week with some of your jobber names! Eustis reminded me of that TV show on the history channel, Mountain Men. I think you did a great job with the big show at the Sports Arena. You gave the crowd an exciting card without pushing any of your angles any further before the bash! Battle Royals are always big ticket sellers and can be used either to not give to much away or to push or start other angles. Good use of the roster here!

    Continental Championship Wrestling

    WITH GORDON SOLIE JUNE 25, 1986 BOUTWELL AUDITORIUM BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA Gordon Solie: Thank you. Thank you so very much and welcome once again to Continental Championship Wrestling sanctioned by the National Wrestling Alliance, the oldest and largest sanctioning body the world over. Folks we are just over a week away from the greatest event in wrestling history… The Great American Bash. A three-night wrestling spectacular in 3 cities that showcases all of the top talent across the entire NWA. I am lucky enough to be announcing the event on Independence Day and we will be discussing that card in Pensacola throughout tonight’s show. Also, on tonight’s show we will be seeing Lanny Poffo taking on Doug Gilbert. “White Lightening” Tim Horner will be taking on “Rotten” Ron Starr. In an Arm-Wrestling Challenge, “Dangerous” Danny Davis is taking on Reggie Bennett and in the Main Event, it will be the NWA World Tag Team Champions, Ted Dibiase and Dr. Death teaming with “Wendell “Wild Cat” Cooley against the entire Tennessee Stud Stable, Robert Fuller, Jimmy Golden and the “Nature Boy” Buddy Landell. That and much, much more when we return! Commercials + Promo for the Great American Bash PENSACOLA BAY CENTER JULY 4, 1986 NWA WORLD TITLE MATCH Magnum T.A. © vs The Masked Superstar NWA WORLD TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH Ted Dibiase & Dr. Death © vs The Tennessee Studd Stable (Robert Fuller & Jimmy Golden) MASK VS CONTINENTAL TITLE MATCH “Dirty” Dick Slater © vs Mr. Olympia CONTINENTAL TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH Tommy & Johnny Rich © vs Bob & Brad Armstrong LOSER WEAR A DRESS MATCH Jimmy Garvin with Precious vs Lanny Poffo with Woman NWA JR. HEAVYWEIGHT MATCH “Mr. Electricity Steve Regal © vs “White Lightening Tim Horner SOUTHEASTERN TITLE MATCH: TITLE & CONTRACT ON A POLE Wendell “Wild Cat” Cooley vs “The Nature Boy” Buddy Landel with Ronnie P. Gossett INTERGENDER MATCH Reggie Bennett vs “Dangerous” Danny Davis PATRIOTIC GRUDGE MATCH Killer Khan with Sheik Adnan Al Kassie vs Private Terry Daniels When we come out of break, we see Tommy “Wildfire” Rich, Johnny Rich, Bob and Brad Armstrong at the interview desk. These two teams were bitter ememies just a few weeks ago but that all changed when Tommy Gilbert brought in Wildfire’s mother and she seemed to straighten out the bad behavior of the Rich boys. Gordon hypes up the fact that these two teams will be facing each other at the Great American Bash with the Continental Title on the line. Both teams expressed the fact that they are in for a tough match and Wildfire and Johnny apologized for their recent actions and that they are so happy the crowd has come back to support them like they did in the past. A handshake by all wrestlers and Gordon takes us to the ring for our first match. MATCH Lanny Poffo with Woman vs Doug Gilbert Solie begins by hyping up the Loser Wears a Dress Match between Poffo and Jimmy Garvin at the Great American Bash. Throughout the match, it is obvious that Gilbert is quickly improving as he is giving Poffo all that he can handle. Problem was that Poffo and Woman make a great team and when Poffo distracted the ref, Woman sprayed something at the face of Gilbert and he went out cold. Poffo climbed to the top rope and came off with an unnecessary frog splash. Gordon Solie: What’s this? What is Woman doing. She has some sort of garment, it’s a …. Dress. She hands it to Lanny Poffo and he is putting it on Doug Gilbert. Oh my, this is wrong. Doug Gilbert is out on his feet after whatever Woman sprayed in his nose. Poffo has the dress over the head of Gilbert. There is a roar from the crowd… Gordon Solie: Here comes Gorgeous Jimmy Garvin…. Poffo sees him and is running for the ropes. Garvin swings at Poffo. Poffo escapes the punch and Garvin and is running for the locker room. As Poffo gets to the curtain, we see Poffo and Woman smiling while Garvin is screaming at them to get back in the ring and we will see who is wearing the dress at the Great American Bash. Garvin helps Gilbert to his feet as Gilbert thanks Garvin for his help. Commercials + Promo for the Great American Bash Before our next match, the Continental Champion, Dick Slater joins Solie to hype his title vs mask match at the Bash. Slater comes out to a mixed reaction as some agree that Mr. Olympia is the bad guy while others fault Slater for attacking Olympia after he failed to show up for a few tag matches. Dick Slater: One thing I know is that my word means everything to me. If I say I am going to be somewhere, I am going to be there. If I say I’ve got your back, trust me, I got your back. I guess that doesn’t hold true for Mr. Olympia. I know we have seen his ugly face before and that mask doesn’t mean a lot to some of you, but to me, it is his way of hiding. His way to do whatever he wants. If he says one thing and does another, that’s okay because he really isn’t Mr. Olympia. Well, once I beat him in the center of that ring at the Great American Bash, he won’t have that mask to hide behind anymore. Like I said, my word is one thing that never bends and whether you like it or not, I guarantee that Mr. Olympia will leave Pensacola without his other identity and without my Continental Title! Gordon Solie: There you have it fans. Dick Slater has given his word that he is going to beat Mr. Olympia at the Bash and I have known Dick a long time and when he says something, it almost always gets done! Let’s get back to the ring. MATCH “White Lightening” Tim Horner defeated “Rotten” Ron Starr” with the rolling cradle. Tim Horner did a good job of dealing with the questionable tactics of Ron Starr and taking advantage of his speed to catch Starr with the cradle. Solie spent most of the match hyping up the fact that Horner had earned an NWA Jr. Heavyweight Title Match at the Bash and his opponent would either be the current champ, Mr. Electricity Steve Regal, the current champ or Eric Embry who Regal will face on the first night of the Great American Bash. Horner, humble as always, praised both Regal and Embry but does say that he is more then ready to win back the title he has already held before and that that he is ready to mix it up if Regal or Embry wants to and if you didn’t believe him, just take a look at what just happened to Rotten Ron Starr. Commercials + Promo for the Great American Bash As we come out break, Magnum T.A. is with Gordon Solie Gordon Solie: Magnum T.A., it is great to have the NWA World Champion here with us tonight. Magnum T.A.: Gordon, it is great to be here. NWA has the greatest fans in all of wrestling and it is always a honor to be with them. Gordon Solie: I agree with you there Magnum. Now let’s get to the Great American Bash. 3 Night, 3 Cities against Jumbo Tsuruta, Masked Superstar and “The Russian Nightmare” Nikita Koloff. Magnum: It is going to be a tough run but as the champion, I am used to wrestling all over the world and against the toughest competition in the world. I am confident. Confident in myself and confident in these fans that we will come out of this on top. Gordon Solie: I certainly hope so and I wish you luck. Thanks for giving us a few moments of your time. Let’s get back to the ring where we have a very interesting contest coming up next… It will be an Arm-Wrestling Match between Dangerous Danny Davis and Reggie Bennett. ARM-WRESTLING MATCH Danngerous Danny Davis vs Reggie Bennett Gordon takes a few moments to explain that Davis has been talking a lot lately about the inabilities of women in the wrestling industry and how he believes they should be at home serving there man. Danny Davis enters the ring flexing his “muscles” as best he could with his 175 pound body and starts pointing at and laughing at Reggie Bennett. Bennett comes out with a coat on and then when Davis gets in her face, she takes of coat and reveals a massive body! Even the arrogant Davis takes a step back. As the two get ready for the arm-wrestling match, Davis shows the normal antics before an armwrestling match. He stalls, pulls away, walks around the ring but none of this gets under the skin of Bennett. Eventually the two get locked up and the ref signals for the match to begin. WHAM… 2 seconds later, Bennett slams Davis’s hand to the table. Davis is stunned while Reggie Bennett celebrates her win by turning to the fans. WHAM… From behind, Dangerous Danny Davis clobbers Reggie Bennett with a big forearm smash. Bennett completely no sells the attack and turns ready to kill Davis. Davis has that look of complete fear in his eyes! WHAM… Bennett scoops Davis up, walks around the ring for a good 20 seconds or so before planting him hard in the center of the ring with a huge powerslam! Satisfied that she has proven her point, Bennett leaves the ring ready for the Great American Bash! Commercials + Promo for the Great American Bash As we come out of break, we see Ronnie P. Gossett with Gordon Solie and he is so excited by the fact that in little over a week, he will be the manager of the not only the Southeastern Champion as Nature Boy Buddy Landel will easily beat Wendy Cooley and that the Studd Stable are the greatest tag team in the world today so they will beat whatever team survives the first night of the bash and become the NWA World Tag Team Champions. Gordon reminds RPG that the Southeastern Title match is also a contract on a pole match and that he might just be without the services of Mr. Landel once the Bash is over. Once again, RPG wonder how much Solie has had to drink today. Solie quickly answers back wondering how much RPG had to eat today. RPG threatened Solie but Solie did not back down. 6 MAN TAG MATCH: Ted Dibiase, Dr. Death & Wendell Cooley vs Robert Fuller, Jimmy Golden and Buddy Landel with RPG This match gives Solie one last chance to hype up the Bash as each member of the match got their time to shine. In the end, we get one of those wild DDQ as there is brawling all over the arena as Solie reminds us to get out tickets to the Bay Canter in Pensacola on Independence Day! Gordon Solie: So long from the heart of Dixie! DARK MATCHES The Dirty White Boy defeats Joe Savoldi with the Bucksnort Blaster. Scott & Steve Armstrong defeat Ron & Don Harris with double top rope leg drops on Ron. Plowboy Frazier defeats JR Hogg with a Giant Splash Steve Gatorwolf defeats Mr. X with a running knee lift.

    All roads lead to WrestlRock! The RnR Express with a little heel action here adds a whole knew element to them. This is going to be fun to watch. The Billy Jack's feud is one that I am really enjoying. Wahoo vs Bock, Lawler vs Dundee are huge as a victory here could send them to the top of the contender's list for the AWA World Title! Brusie Brothers vs Priceless is..... well.... Priceless! Can't wait for the write up for GIant Haystacks vs El Canek.

    First for the show on June 23... Like how Madusa is dressing down her own stablemates but it will be interesting to see how long they stand for it.... especially Maxine. As for the Supercard.... Madusa and Maxine win the tag title but again, Madusa does nothing in the interview to endure her to her stablemates! Not so fast Wendy Richter.... makes this feud even better with her defeat.

    Very well booked card. The fan favorites get off to a fast start but then the heels make the comeback follwed by an action backed 2 out of 3 falls Draw! I like the team of U.S. Steel and Rufus. Their size and brawling ability fit nice here in WSW! They would really get over with the crowd. Between the Funks, Zaibatsu, Dev. Inc, The Long RIders, etc, etc, your tag team division is DEEP and really fits well into this territory. Really glad you have jumped in with us. Thanks! WSW is a fun read each and every show.

    I really enjoyed the card in Portland. Seeing Hansen and the young Simmons in an all out brawl would be something I would remember for ever. Busick is one of my favorites in the game and I real enjoy what you have done with him. As always, your development of the youngsters is awesome to see. Young Vic in the title match was cool but the Playboy is right where he deserves to be! The Eugene card was also very interesting to see as the development of the youngsters continues to be a focus of PCW. Adams with a nive win. JJ making the most of his tag team situation. Windham seems to be getting on a roll here and your last two matches were big time. Can I ask are your California titles on the line even when the event is not in California?

    Scarlet is having trouble posting his show so he asked me to do it for him. The site seems to be acting up again. Hey there, I hope this works! I’m currently unable to properly access the site. The reply form never opens and all I’m left with is the option to insert an attachment. If possible, could you reply to my thread with this and explain the situation? Thanks in advance! * Wonder Women of Wrestling – Episode No. XXIX – 23rd of June 1986 – Airing Live! – Las Vegas, Nevada Advertised Match: Lisa Moretti versus Desiree Petersen for the WWW Fighting Spirit Championship and the NWA Texas Women’s Championship This week, the programme opens with a snazzy video package showing off loads of new merchandise, extra footage of Debbie Combs and hype packages for various matches at the upcoming supercard. We then move onto the television title match, with Velvet McIntyre taking on Luna Vachon. The challenger is coached throughout the match by her mentor Medusa Miceli and seems to have greatly improved her in-ring ability but even the guidance and occasional overt aid from the leader of the monsters can’t keep Luna Vachon in the game long enough to really pose a threat to Velvet McIntyre – who seems to have found a new lease of life as TV champion. Velvet McIntyre defeats Luna Vachon in 13:10 by pinfall after a swinging hurricanrana to retain the WWW Television Championship After a brief interlude – this one shilling the new “WWW Magazine” and its inaugural prediction competition – we head to the interviews. All of the monsters are sat with Luna Vachon for a tense dressing down from their leader. Rhonda Singh tries to complain about Luna Vachon being given her spot but is browbeaten by an enraged Medusa Miceli who promises to show them how it’s done in her own match. Velvet McIntyre uses her interview time to politely request that Debbie Combs consider her for a world title match when she “inevitably” crushes Wendi Richter for a second time. A commercial break then takes us through to a tag team match to determine the title challengers on Saturday. The Star Girls are taking on the terrifying pairing of Medusa Miceli and Mad Maxine. The resulting contest is brutal from start to finish as the superior athlete Medusa Miceli takes on a well-oiled machine in the form of Rockin’ Robin and Jamie West almost single-handed as she leaves Mad Maxine on the apron – saving her for clean-up duty. As tiredness eventually wears her down, Medusa Miceli is forced to tag out after pin attempt catches her with less than a second to spare. Once Mad Maxine enters, however, it’s obvious who’ll win. Rockin’ Robin takes a big boot that sends her soaring from the apron, colliding violently with the guard rail, and Jamie West goes up for a devastating gorilla press slam. Medusa Miceli & Mad Maxine defeat Rockin’ Robin & Jamie West in 14:32 when Mad Maxine pins Jamie West after a gorilla press slam After another brief interlude, we head to the interviews. The Star Girls, beaten and bruised, swear they’ll find a strategy for neutralising Mad Maxine the next time that the two teams clash. Medusa Miceli, on the other hand, rants at the interviewer, the audience and her own stablemates – declaring herself to be the most dominant competitor in the company and promising to have every title belt in the company around the waist of a member of her faction by the time the summer’s over. A second commercial break then takes us to the main event. With her stablemates there to cheer her on and no one in the champ’s corner, Desiree Petersen has the morale advantage and, in the early goings of the match even appears to have tactical advantage. Once the feeling out process is complete, however, Lisa Moretti sinks her teeth in and proceeds to torture the challenger at every turn. The champion is utterly merciless and uses the contest, seemingly, to prove a point. The babyface breaks out occasionally, even going on extended runs from time to time but, without variation, is brought to heel before she can seriously threaten an upset. Lisa Moretti defeats Desiree Petersen in 15:07 by pinfall after a powerslam to retain the WWW Fighting Spirit Championship and the NWA Texas Women’s Championship

    Awesome TV show this week. I wouldn't want to go head to head with you in a Dawn of War Trivia contest. That back stroy about The Wild Bunch was spot on. Also loved the backstory of Mantell in Vietnam. Stories make this game! Jumbo is one tough dude. Tojo was correct. Both Mantell and T.A. better be READY! Nice win for Jimmy Jack. The Funks are starting to roll in their territory. To the Sports Arena: AWESOME CARD! Like Shaska being the opening heel. Gets the fans throwing some heat right away. Great use of the stipulation in that Partner Handcuffed to the ringpost. No problem... take off the turnbuckle! Very creative. Scott Irwin over Super D... Interesting! then Bill Irwin survives the next bout with a DDQ against Brooks. Jumbo is on a roll! Can he take the World Title... We will have to see!

Another angle that I can't wait to see play out is El Canek vs Giant Haystacks.... something must give here... might even be the ring if in is not re-enforced BattenRock looks like trouble for Southern Justice The tag team division is deepere then ever... RnR, Fab Ones, Bruise Brothers... that's a lot for the fans to cheer for. Love the Bruise Brothers going to the pawn shop to sell the Billionaires title. Don't be nervous. This might be the best day yet in the history of Dawn of War! Really love these southern type brawls to end the AWA shows.

    Continental Championship Wrestling

    MAY 24, 1986 BOUTWELL AUDITORIUM BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA Gordon Solie: Thank you. Thank you so very much and welcome once again to Continental Championship Wrestling sanctioned by the National Wrestling Alliance, the oldest and largest sanctioning body the world over. We are back stronger than ever after a two week hiatus due to Atlanta Braves baseball here on the Superstation but we more than make up for it. I guarantee you that. Mr. Olympia will be in action tonight as he takes on Rotten Ron Starr. Buddy Landel has a tough one tonight against Chief Joe Lightfoot as he tries to prepare for his Southeastern Title shot against Wendell “Wild Cat” Cooley at the Great American Bash. Also, hoping to continue his push towards the Bash and his NWA World Title shot against Magnum T.A. is the Masked Superstar who will be taking on the former World Jr. Heavyweight Champion in White Lightening Tim Horner. Jimmy Garvin will be taking on The Assassin while Killer Khan will be involved in a handicap match. If that is not enough folks, listen to the main event. It will be Bob and Brad Armstrong taking on the Tennessee Studd Stable … Jimmy Golden and Robert Fuller! That and much, much, more. Our timekeeper is set to go so let’s get to the ring! MATCH: Mr. Olympia defeats Rotten Ron Starr with the Sleeper Throughout the match Gordon Solie reminded fans that Mr. Olympia will challenge his long-time friend Dick Slater for the Continental Heavyweight title at the Great American Bash. Solie reminds us that the relationship between the two has been strained of late as Mr. Olympia failed to show up for a few tag matches and Slater was left to fend for himself and then Slater, frustrated with Olympia, recently sucker punched him with a big right hand. As far as this match goes, the crowd was divided. Half seemed to blame him for the situation with Slater while they others cheered him as if he did nothing wrong. In tonight’s match, Olympia played it by the books until he got fed up with the questionable tactics by Starr and then he the brawl was on. After the sleeper ended the bout, Olympia roughly slapped Star across the neck to bring him back to the living. Post-Match Interview: Gordon Solie: Mr. Olympia, I must ask what is going on between you and Dick Slater. Mr. Olympia: Gordon, honestly, I used to call Dick Slater my friend. I could count on him to do the right thing but when he punched me last week, everything changed. The title has gone to his head. He thinks everyone owes him something. He blamed me for him looking bad. I tried to explain to him that I had car trouble and I was sorry for missing the match. I mean has he never had a situation come up? He started yelling that he is the Continental Champ and that I needed to do better! Do better….. you bet I will Slater. At the Great American Bash in Pensacola on July 4th, I will do better and take that Continental Title home with me! COMMERCIAL BREAK + PROMOS FOR BOTH THE BASH & MONDAY @ THE BOUTWILL AUDITORIUM MATCH: Nature Boy Buddy Landel with Ronnie P. Gossett beats Chief Joe Lightfoot with the Corkscrew Elbow This bout showed Landel is near perfect form where he needed little help Gossett to beat a really game Joe Lightfoot. Solie was very impressed with Landel and reminded fans that Wendel Cooley better be on his best game if he is going to defend that Southeastern Title against Landel at the Great American Bash. Post-Match Interview: Ronnie P: Gordon, Gordon, Gordon! Have you ever seen a wrestler with more pure skill than my man, “The Nature Boy” Buddy Landel! Gordon Solie: I will admit that he was very impressive today. Buddy Landel: Today? I am always impressive. I am the perfect wrestler and at the Great American Bash, I will become the new Southeastern Heavyweight Champion. Gordon Solie: Folks, remember this bout will be a Title and Contract On A Pole Match so if Buddy Landell can’t climb up and grab the title, he will no longer be a part of Continental Championship Wrestling. Ronnie P: I thought for once Solie you had come to work without going off on one of your benders but that you even think for one minute that The Nature Boy could loose to that long haired hippie your drunker then ever honey! As Landel and Ronnie P walk off laughing Solie wonders what life could be like if it was Ronnie P. in a contract on a pole match because there is no way that he would ever make it up a pole without some sort of crane! COMMERCIAL BREAK + PROMOS FOR BOTH THE BASH & MONDAY @ THE BOUTWILL AUDITORIUM As we come out of break, we see a video from the most arrogant man to never win a match…. Dangerous Danny Davis. All 6’0, 175 pounds of Davis are seen in the gym lifting some pathetic weights and flexing his not so big muscles all the while saying that women have no business being in the ring and that he is going to wipe the floor with Reggie Bennett. When the video is over, Reggie Bennett is with Gorson Solie. Gordon Solie: Reggie, what do you make of what we just saw from Dangerous Danny Davis Reggie Bennett: I find it funny and sad at the same time. Funny, looking at Davis is a gym. Funny at him thinking that he could beat me at anything and sad that he has such a lack of respect for women in general. I can’t wait until the Great American Bash in Pensacola when I show him what real muscles can do! MATCH: The Masked Superstar defeats “White Lightening” Tim Horner by submission with the Cobra Clutch Masked Superstar II accompanied The Masked Superstar to the ring but was just a spectator here tonight. Horner gave it his all and had a few roll-up pin attempts but he was giving away nearly 80 pounds in this contest and just got worn down with big move after big move. Post-Match Interview: Gordon Solie: Very impressive, very impressive Superstar, Masked Superstar: Gordon, very soon when you refer to me, you will refer to me as the Superstar. The professional wrestler. The man who defeated Magnum T.A. The NWA World Heavyweight Champion. You just saw that the Cobra Clutch is the most devastation, inescapable move in professional wrestling and once I lock these arms around the neck of Magnum T.A., there is nothing he can do about it! Gordon Solie: Well Superstar, I must admit that in all my years of professional wrestling, Magnum T.A. is one of the best I have ever seen. I do not think it will be as easy as you say it will be to take the world title off his hands. Masked Superstar: I take nothing away from Magnum T.A. He is a very, very good wrestler. I have seen him beat the likes of Ivan Koloff, Nikita Koloff, and Tully Blanchard. The only thing is that I am better then all of them and he won’t beat me. The two Masked Superstars walk away as Gordon reminds the fans that The Great American Bash will be very trying on all of the NWA World Champions as they are going to be defending their titles three times in three different cities in three nights against the best the NWA has to offer and the Masked Superstar is definitely one of them. COMMERCIAL BREAK + PROMOS FOR BOTH THE BASH & MONDAY @ THE BOUTWILL AUDITORIUM HANDICAP MATCH Killer Khan with Sheik Adnan Al Kassie crushes Rob Veasel and Bubba Mayes This bout shows the 300 pound monster billed from Mongolia just beat the two jobbers from pillar to post. When he was done punching, kicking, choking and kneeing his opponents, Khan simple stacked them on top of each other and stood on them both at the same time for the three count. Post-Match Interviw: Gordon Solie: Sheik Adnan Al Kassie… I will admit that your man is extremely tough but it seems that your anti-American comments have upset U.S. Marine Terry Daniels and he vows to defeat your man on Independence Day at the Great American Bash Shiek Adnan Al Kassie: masaa' alkhayr. anaa saäiid jiddan bimuqaabalatak kayfa Haluk Gordon Solie: I will admit that I have no idea what you are saying Sheik. Sheik Adnan: Not to worry about that now. Everyone wants to know where Sheik Adnan Al Kassie has been. Well I have been back in my hometown of Baghdad, Iraq and I have been getting updates on all the evil things that America has been doing. I decide it was time to wage war on America. I used some of my riches to hire a mercenary and he is coming to take over American wrestling. What you just saw in the ring a few minutes ago is only the beginning. I warn you Terry Daniels… DO NOT SHOW UP FOR THE GREAT AMERICAN BASH! Gordon Solie: It will take a lot more than words to get an American Marine to back down. I assure you that! COMMERCIAL BREAK + PROMOS FOR BOTH THE BASH & MONDAY @ THE BOUTWILL AUDITORIUM MATCH Jimmy Garvin with Precious defeats The Assassin with sit-down jawbreaker This was a really tough match as Garvin couldn’t seem to control the big man and failed to hoist him up for the Brainbuster. Garvin coming up with the jawbreaker for the win allowed Gordon to hype up just how talented he is and that he can beat you in many ways. During the entire match, Solie reminded fans that it would be Garvin vs Lanny Poffo at the Bash in a Loser Wears A Dress Match. In the post-match interview, Garvin said kept saying that how beautiful he was and that most beautiful people look even better in a dress but he guaranteed everyone that it would be the UGGLY Lanny Poffo wearing the dress at the Bash and not his. Precious gets involved in the interview as she opens up her purse to pull out a Moo Moo which se claimed was the only dress she could find that would fit Poffo’s personality. COMMERCIAL BREAK + PROMOS FOR BOTH THE BASH & MONDAY @ THE BOUTWILL AUDITORIUM MAIN EVENT: Bob & Brad Armstrong vs Robert Fuller & Jimmy Golden with Ronnie P. Gossett As so many of these big TV matches do, we get a wild finish! We get exactly what you would expect from these 4 men…. BRAWL, BRAWL, BRAWL! Unfortunately for the Armstrongs, when the action spilled outside, Gossett tripped Bob and CRACK… Fuller with a Chair shot on Papa Armstrong. The bell sounded giving the Armstrongs the DQ win but that was of little importance as the attack was still on. This left the Studd Stable with a 2-1 advantage over Brad and they worked him over pretty good. The crowd exploded… Gordon Solie: Here comes the calvary. It’s Tommy and Johnny Rich! Wildfire with a big right hand on Golden. Johnny and Fuller are trading punches in the middle of the ring. Here comes Tommy. Wildfire grabs Fuller and tosses him to the corner. Wildfire up on the middle rope and he is pounding on Fuller. Folks, I hate to do this but we are out of time. So long from the Heart of Dixie.

    Wonder Women Wrestling

    No problem needing some personal time. This is always for fun around here. I have to agree with Autistic Dragon... that one is worth using. Like when I know that I am going to get more Wendy Richter soon! This rematch should be fun. Maya Singh might never learn but I think she has found a gimmick that could work for years to come! Thanks for continuing with this creative promotion.

    Pacific Coast Wrestling

    Two great events for Pacific. For me, you continue to be the master at help building the starsof tomorrow. Giving JJ, Severn to help teach him the ropes was a perfect idea. The Midnight Express conitine to roll of late. While the fans are not to happy with Playboy being back on top in Pacific, it gives me the feeling that everything is right in the world of wrestling. Nice job!

    AWA Major League Wrestling

    Awesome show as we head towards WrestleRock I thought you did a great job with your interviews this week as you really captured the character of your wrestlers. Unnistan from Duncan and Rezzy from VIn Man had me going! Great Job. It's going to WAAAR.... from Iukea would have sent chills down my spine. He was one scary dude with all that blading to his forehead. Hennig and Adias are becoming Perfectly Arrogant! Let's Go RNR Express! Great match for RnR Express vs Pricless.... You hyped up so much here.... the Express came out looking great while the Brusie Brothers and Priceless heat up their feud! WOW... Moretti puts the Dog Collar on Sunshine.... I smell REVENGE coming! Poor Lothario. It will be fun to see how you write up the match between El Canek and Haystacks. Some one is MOVING UP THE LADDER! I was really looking forward to see who came out on top between the Maniac/Crippler vs The Superflys.... I should have figured out that the Cartel wasn't going to let that go the distance. ON TO LOUISVILLE Great overall card with all the big names continuing their push to WrestleRock. That main event would sell some MAJOR TICKETS! Glad Wahoo joined the AWA as you know just how to use him.

    Mid South Wrestling Archives

    With my folder being deleted, I thoiught I would re-post my work in order to have a history of it and in case any new readers want to catch up with what they missed. No reason to comment on it. It you feel this is cluttering up our project, I will remove it. NWA MID SOUTH WRESTLING WITH JIM ROSS & BILL WATTS MARCH 27, 1986 IRISH McNEIL’S BOYS CLUB SHREVEPORT, LOUISIANA Before we get to Jim Ross and Cowboy Bill Watts, we get a highlight montage from WrestleWar that includes Harley Race being attacked by a large Asian man before losing the North American Title to Jake “the Snake” Roberts, Dr. Death and Ted Dibiase defeating the Freebirds when Doc hit the Oklahoma Stampede on Bam Bam to win the NWA World Tag Team titles, and Magnum T.A. defending his NWA World Title in a controversial decision over Nikita Koloff where it appeared the Russian Nightmare had kicked out before the count of the three. As the camera picks up Jim Ross and Cowboy Bill Watts, we see a Mid-South Championship belt on the podium. Jim Ross: Hello everybody and welcome to a very special episode of NWA wrestling as it is the first episode of Mid-South Wrestling in well over 2 years. That’s right folks. The NWA has grown so fast in 1986 that it has expanded into two separate promotions: NWA Mid-South and NWA Continental Championship Wrestling. Both shows are extremely happy to have come to an agreement with the great Ted Turner and WTBS Superstation 17 from Atlanta, Georgia. Mid-South will air on Saturdays at 6:05 while Continental Championship Wrestling will follow right after at 7:05. Joining me today here at the Irish McNeil’s Boys Club is the current NWA President, Cowboy Bill Watts. Bill, this is an exciting time here in the NWA. Bill Watts: You said a mouth full Jim. What a time to be a fan of the NWA! I am really excited to be going back to my roots here in the Mid-South. Fans in Louisiana, Oklahoma, Arkansas and yes… Texas, get ready for the best wrestling has to over. Listen up all you fans in the Lone Star State… we will be heading your way in just three weeks where we will be crowning new Mid-South tag team champions in a one night tournament on April 190th at the world famous Sportatorioum! That night there will be two other title matches as the NWA North American Title will be defended as will be the NWA World Title. Jim Ross: So exciting Cowboy! Can’t wait to hear more on that awesome event in the weeks to come. Fans, you do not need to wait until April 19th to see great Mid-South action as we have a tremendous show for you tonight. Bill Watts: That’s right Jim but before we get to the ring, I would like to bring out Hacksaw Butch Reed. Reed comes out to a nice ovation from the crowd. Bill Watts: Congratulations Hacksaw on defeating Jerry Lawler for the NWA Southern Title at WrestleWar but I have some news for you. The NWA has decided to retire that title as of right now. The crowd’s cheers turn to boos and Hacksaw Reed gives Watts a quizzical look. Bill Watts: Fans, don’t worry. The NWA has decided to replace the Southern Title with the Mid-South Heavyweight Title and Butch, I am proud to award this beautiful new belt to you. The crowd now cheering again, sees Hacksaw smiling and accepting the new belt and thanking the fans for all their support and that he promises to do right by the people of Mid-South Wrestling and be a true, fighting champion. The crowd is once again booing as Ernie Ladd comes to the podium. Cowboy Bill Watts: You have no right to be out here right now Ernie. Ernie Ladd: There you go again Watts telling me about my rights. I am getting sick and tired of seeing the injustices around here. I don’t care if you call this show Southern States Wrestling or Mid-South Wrestling. It is all a big cover up to keep me down and this big, dumb Uncle Tom next to you who is too stupid to see the forest through the trees. I mean you just award him a title…. That aint right. You just trying to make sure I don’t manage any title holders around here. If you give my man a title shot, I promise Hack Reed won’t be champ no longer. Hacksaw Reed is fuming but somehow manages to keep his cool. Bill Watts: Your man? The last time we saw Jerry Lawler, he was catching a bus to Memphis. Ernie Ladd: Can you blame him? With all the crookedness around here! He went back to where he knows he will get a fair shake. Anyway, I wasn’t talking about Jerry “The King” Lawler. If all you people show up Monday night at the Riverside Centroplex in Baton Rouge, you will agree with me in saying Hacksaw Butch Reed might be the first Mid-South Title holder in awhile but he will also have the shortest title reign. If you think Reed is big…. You aint seen nothing yet. Ladd storms off as Watts wonders who was dumb enough to join forces with Ernie Ladd. Reed doesn’t seem to care as he says, “the bigger they are, the harder they fall.” COMMERCIAL MATCH: Ron Bass & Black Bart defeat Verlon Biggs & Larry Cheatum when Bart hit the Trash Compactor on Cheatum A quick interview here where Bass and Bart endure themselves to the fans as they say they are happy to be here in Mid-South Wrestling after their title run in Texas All-Star Wrestling and they would love nothing more than to beat the Danggum Freebirds for the Mid-South Tag Team Titles. Jim Ross: Next to the podium is the new North American Champion Jake Roberts. Mr. Roberts, it seems you have some explaining to do? What is your relationship with that giant of a man who attacked Harley Race at WrestleWar? Jake Roberts: For once, the Snake got no rhymes or riddles about this as I am truly at a loss. All I know is that when the match was over, I put the over-the- hill Harley Race down for the count and walked out as the North American Champion just as I said I would. Jim Ross: And you didn’t have any hand in the interference by that monster? Jake Roberts: I know nothing about any monster. As I said, I, and I only beat Harley Race. Roberts walks off as Jim Ross shakes his head as he is unsure what to believe after that but all he knows is that The Snake had help beating Harley Race. Jim Ross lets us know that newcomer to Mid-South Wrestling, Tarzan Goto will be taking on SD Jones next. Ross admits that he is somewhat embarrasses as he knows nothing of Tarzan. COMMERCIAL MATCH: Tarzan Goto defeats SD Jones with a violent Power Bomb! As Goto ran to the ring… Bill Watts: Oh my…here he is… it’s that 300 plus pound Asian monster who attacked Harley Race at WrestleWar. As for the match, Goto destroyed SD Jones. At one point, Jones managed a headbutt on Tarzan. This is usually a move that knocks SD’s opponents for a loop. Instead, Goto just laughed. He proceeded to pound his OWN HEAD with his fist until blood was trickling down his face. SD, for once in his career, looked worried and Goto went to work. When the match was over, Goto continued his assault on SD Jones. The crowd exploded when Harley Race hit the ring, but their enthusiasm was short lived as Goto planted him in the center of the ring with a powerslam! All Jim Ross could do was wonder who this monster was and if Jake Roberts had anything to do with it. COMMERCIAL MATCH: Terry Taylor defeats Iron Mike Sharpe with the 5 Arm Taylor has a successful return to Mid-South wrestling as he was able to overcome all of the questionable tactics by “Canada’s greatest athlete.” While Taylor was explaining to Jim Ross how great it was to be back here in Mid-South, his interview was interrupted by another man making his return to the area… Iceman King Parsons. Over the past 2 years, Iceman has gone back and forth on the side of good and evil many times and Jim Ross is a little nervous about Iceman confronting Terry Taylor. Iceman Parsons: Now listen to me people. I know Iceman has not always been on his best behavior, but I have always been honest. When Iceman speaks it’s like the Gospel and I am here to make amends. Over the last two years, I have shamed my people. I have shamed my own mother and for that, Iceman is truly sorry. Now I hear that Mid-South is holding a tag team tournament to crown a knew champion. I’m new around here and I know Terry, you haven’t been around either. I aint got no partner yet and Terry, you and I use to be close… so what do ya say… how about we set this tag team division on its head and win those belts. The crowd and Terry are both a little uneasy but after a bit of hesitation, Terry extends his hand and the two embrace. You can tell that Iceman has his charisma and mojo back again and we will soon be hearing “We Are Family” blasting from the speakers as he heads to the ring. COMMERCIAL MAIN EVENT MATCH: Kevin Sullivan vs “Baby Bull” Leon White It didn’t take long to see that Kevin Sullivan was not interested in wrestling as his minions, Haku and the Barbarian hit the ring about a minute into the action. While Leon tried his best to fend off the invaders, the numbers game soon took over. Haku and The Barbarian were all over White while Sullivan stomped around outside of the ring looking for something. Soon he came across a rope and he rushed back to the ring with his new find. Sullivan quickly tied White’s left arm to the top rope while Haku and the Barbarian continued the attack. Sullivan once again exited the ring only to return this time with a chair. SMASH… SMASH…. SMASH went the chair against the forearm of the Baby Bull. White could do nothing about it as he was not only tied but was being held down by the two 300 pounders. You could almost hear the damage being done as the metal chair just crashed down over and over again. Jim Ross was calling for help and Wahoo McDaniel soon answered the call but with White basically out of it, the numbers game just turned on Wahoo. The attack was just as brutal against McDaniel and the crowd was screaming for it to stop. Jim Ross: Folks, this is just horrendous. Someone is going to get seriously hurt. Not the way we expected Mid-South Wrestling to end their first show here on WTBS! Something has to be done. We promise to give you an update next week. So long from the Pelican State! NWA MID SOUTH WRESTLING WITH JIM ROSS & BILL WATTS APRIL 3, 1986 THE MYRIAD OKLAHMOMA CITY, OKLAHOMA (Matches from the show on March 29) Jim Ross: Hello everybody and welcome to a Mid-South Wrestling here on WTBS Superstation 17 from Atlanta, Georgia. A lot of great things happening here as we are just over two weeks away from the tournament to crown new Mid-South tag team champions. Bill Watts: That’s right Jim. On April 19th in the Sportatorium in Dallas, Texas, we will hold an 8 team one night tournament to fill the vacant titles. Next week, we will be announcing those teams. Jim Ross: Don’t forget fans, on that card in Dallas, Magnum T.A. will defend the NWA World Title and the North American title currently held by Jake “The Snake” Roberts will also be defended at that show. Bill Watts: Speaking of Jake Roberts, he will be defending the North American Title right here tonight in a rematch from WrestleWar against the former champion, Harley Race. Jim Ross: That will be a great main event tonight, but we also have a lot of great action as “The Russian Nightmare” Nikita Koloff will be taking on Mike Graham. The Freebirds will be taking on SD Jones & Steve Simpson and the newly formed tag team of Iceman Parsons & Terry Taylor will have their hands full with “Killer” Tim Brooks & Jimmy Jack. Before we get to the ring, let’s bring in Wahoo McDaniel. Wahoo comes out and Jim Ross starts the segment off by showing a tape from last week where Kevin Sullivan, The Barbarian, and Haku seemed to break “Baby Bull” Leon White’s arm with a steel chair. Wahoo McDaniel: Enough is enough Sullivan. Every time anyone steps into the ring with you, you forget all about wrestling and just try to hurt them. I wouldn’t have a problem with that if it was you doing the hurting. I mean I know this is professional wrestling. I know this is a sport for a man’s man. I know we have to put on our big boy pants and get in the ring night after night and put our bodies on the line. No problem with that… but you Sullivan, know you stand no chance in the ring alone so you keep calling in your minions to do your dirty work. Two on One, Three on one attacks. Night after night but it’s coming to an end. I got a few friends who I called last week after you attacked Leon and they said they would need to tie up a few loose but they would be here soon! Oh Sullivan, I think you have woke some sleeping giants and the end is near for you. Jim Ross: Thank you Wahoo. I can’t wait to see who is coming here to join you in taking out Kevin Sullivan. It is long past due and what he did to Leon White last week was totally uncalled for. Fans, let’s get to the ring. MATCH Iceman Parsons & Terry Taylor vs Killer Tim Brooks & Jimmy Jack A couple things to note here. First Taylor and Iceman came out to “We Are Family” and they seemed to be 100% on the same page. Secondly, this team of Killer Brooks and Jimmy Jack were no slouches themselves. They were mean, violent and relentless. While these teams are new to Mid-South, they had the fans on the edge of their seats. Taylor and Iceman survived the bout as Iceman hit the Butt Bump on Brooks and then quickly tagged in Taylor who hit the 5 Arm for the pin. As the ref raised the fan favorites hand in victory, Jimmy Jack attacked and the fight was back on! These teams fought all the way to the back on the arena as we headed to break with Ross and Watts hyping up the energy of our first bout and all the new stars coming to Mid-South Wrestling. COMMERCIAL MATCH “The Russian Nightmare” Nikita Koloff destroyed SD Jones with the end mercifully coming after a nasty Russian Sickle. Ivan Koloff and Krusher Kruschev join Nikita at the interview desk. Ivan Koloff: Where is the video? Every time I turn on da TV, I see you showing a video of some past match where some American has done wonderful thing. Now, where is da video? Jim Ross: What video are you talking about Ivan? Ivsn Koloff: I am talking about the video tape of when the incompetent referee made a three count against Nikita at WresltWar against Magnum T.A. when it was obvious his shoulders where up. Jim Ross: I am sorry Mr. Koloff but we do not have any video of that match. As far as I remember, Nikita was pinned by Magnum T.A. Ivan Koloff: No chance Mr. Jim Ross. This is just another example of American cheating. Nikita should be the NWA World Champion and you know it. Speaking of Magnum T.A., where has he been. I tell you where. He is running as far from Nikita as he could. He knows he could never beat my nephew and if he ever returns to Mid-South, we will prove just that. Jim Ross: I can promise you he will return. I have known Magnum for a long time and he has ever backed down from challenge. Ivan Koloff: There has never been a challenge like The Russian Nightmare, Nikita Koloff. Nikita Koloff: MAGNUM T.A., I WILL FINISH YOU! As we head to break, we see as add come across the screen that announces the return of COMMERCIAL MATCH: The Freebirds defeat Tom Stone & Jerry Boulder when Gordy hit the piledriver on Stone. The Freebirds where extremely arrogant during the match and they really got the ire of the fans as they bullied Stone and Boulder throughout the match. While Michael Hayes did not wrestle in the match, he really toyed with the crowd was pushing all the right buttons to have the fans foaming at the mouth in anger Michael Hayes: Simply put Jim Ross. I am the prettiest man in the world today. Ron Bass… Black Bart… are you jealous? Are you jealous you don’t have a face like this? Zoom that camera in here. Get a good look at me. Purely Sexy! I’ve been wrestling for a long, long time and as I just said, I am real pretty. You know what that means. When I’m in the ring, I am the Grand Daddy of them all. I mean I don’t get hit. I do the hitting. I don’t get kicked. I do the kicking. That’s why I look like I do, and Ron Bass and Black Bart look the way they do. When it is all said and done, The Fabulous Freebirds will be walking out of the Sportatorium with those Mid-South Tag Team Titles on April 19th. Man, will that feel good… just like the old days when we went down to Texas and kicked some VonErich you know what…. and then took their ladies and had a real good time. Bad Street is coming to Dallas and their aint nothing you can do about it. Terry Gordy: I’m 300 pounds of rompin, stompin, grave yard destruction. I’m 1/3 of the Fabulous Freebirds. That’s right… Fabulous Freebirds. Should I be concearned that Ron Bass and Black Bart want a piece of us? The answer is no. People have wanted a piece of us for our entire lives and by the end of the night, they have had a change of my mind. Ross and Bart…. Step in the ring with us and it might be the last thing you do. Buddy Roberts: Ron Bass and Black Bart and any of those other teams who are dumb enough to show up in Dallas on April 19th will learn the hard way why were are the best that there is. The best that there was and the best that there ever will be. And I think they will learn the hard way! COMMERCIAL MAIN EVENT MATCH: NORTH AMERICAN TITLE MATCH Jake “The Snake” Roberts © vs Harley Race It is obvious that Harley Race is not 100% after he was attacked last week by Tarzan Goto but that doesn’t mean you should count him out. We get a great match that goes nearly 13 minutes before it seems like Harley has gotten the momentum for the last time and that he is poised to regain his title. After a good 3 minutes of wrestling from the top, Harley hoists the Snake up for the vetical suplex and smashes him to the ground. Harley climbs to the top rope and looks like he is going for the top rope diving headbutt. WHAM…. As the crowd groaned, Harley is tossed off the top rope and crashes to the matt as Tarzan Goto has attacked Race for the third time in 3 weeks. Goto works over Race as the ref calls for the bell awarding Harley the match but not the title he was looking for. As Snake recovered from the suplex he sees that Goto is working offer Race. The Snake doesn’t join in which made people think that he was telling the truth saying he wasn’t involved. As Snake simple walks off set, we hear Jim Ross. Jim Ross: Oh my… it can’t be. It isn’t? It is. That’s Larry Zbysko strutting to the ring. He laughs. Smacks Goto on the back in a gesture of thanks and then joins in the attack on Harley. Folks, this is bad. Real bad and we need some help out here. Sorry but we are out of time. So long from the sooner state. DARK MATCH: Ron Starr & Black Bart defeated Ivan Koloff & Kruscher Kruschev when Ivan rushed at Bart with the Russian chaim but accidently hit his own partner. Bart followed this up by leaping off the top rope with the double leg drop and the Cowboys got the pin over the Russians. NWA MID SOUTH WRESTLING WITH JIM ROSS & BILL WATTS APRIL 10, 1986 MUNICIPAL AUDITORIUM NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA (Matches from the show on April 5) STILL TRYING TO ADJUST MID-SOUTH ROSTER SO THIS SHOW WILL JUST BE AN UPDATE OF ANGLES. 1. MID-SOUTH TAG TEAM TOURNAMENT: SPORTATORIUM: APRIL 19th Watts announces the following teams for the tournament: Ivan Koloff & Kruscher Kruschev, The Fabulous Freebirds, Ron Bass & Black Bart, Terry Taylor & Iceman Parsons, Haku & The Barbarian, and “Killer” Brooks & Jimmy Jack. When Jim Ross reminds Watts that he only named 6 of the 8 teams, Watts explains that Wahoo McDaniel will be here later with a mystery partner and they will be the 7th team. Watts says that before he introduces the last time, he would like to invite Harley Race to come out. Watts explains that the 8th spot was going to go to Larry Zbyszko and Tarzan Goto but Harley Race just came to him and convinced him that because of the recent antics of Zbyszko and Goto, he and a partner of his choosing should have a chance to wrestle Zbyszko and Goto for that last spot in the tournament. Watts says he agreed. When Larr Z. came out to object, Harley came out to confront his former partner. This lasted only about a minute before Goto attacked Race. This was a short-lived advantage for the heels as we found out who Harley’s partner is going to be…. None other than the wild man himself…. Bruiser Brody! With Brody on the warpath, the fan favorites soon controlled the brawl as Zbyszko and Goto beat a hasty retreat. 2. Who will face Magnum T.A. at the Sportatorium on April 19th After a squash win by Kruscher Kruschev, he was joined by Ivan and Nikita Koloff at the post-match interview where Ivan again calls out Magnum T.A. as being a coward for not being around since WrestleWar where Nikita clearly had him beat except for the typical American cheating. Bill Watts disagreed that T.A. was afraid of The Russian Nightmare but he did admit the Nikita was deserving of another title match and that it would take place in Dallas. 3. Who will face Jake “The Snake” Roberts for the North American Title on April 19th? There will be a 20 man Battle Royal in Tulsa where the winner will get $10,000 and a North American Title shot. 4. One Man Gang is the newest member of Ernie Ladd’s Army to come after Hacksaw Butch Reed and the Mid-South Title. Since arriving in the NWA about 10 days ago, One Man Gang has crushed each and every opponent in near record time with each win coming by way of the 747 Splash. Ladd and Gang keep calling out Reed and seem to be having a grand time stretchering out opponent after opponent. In a few interviews, Reed admits that Gang in one big dude but that only means he is going to make a loud noise when he hits the mat. While they have yet to physically, this is one to keep an eye on. NWA MID SOUTH WRESTLING WITH JIM ROSS & BILL WATTS APRIL 17, 1986 Civic Center Tulsa, Oklahoma (Matches from the show on April 19) Jim Ross: Hey everybody! Welcome to another hour of exciting Mid-South Wrestling. I’m Jim Ross and it’s certainly my privilege to have NWA President, Cowboy Bill Watts as my partner on today’s show. Thank you, Bill, for being with us. A great hour instore for everybody as the lineup is jam packed with great matches, but everybody is talking about the $10,000 Over the Top Battle Royal where the winner will also get a shot at Jack “The Snake” Roberts and the North American Title. Bill Watts: And that is understandable Jim. I mean Battle Royals are just so exciting as so many things can happen, and we are never sure who will come out on top. Couple that with the 10 grand and the title shot to boot and that is going to be one heck of an event. Jim Ross: And with competitors like Bruiser Brody, Terry Gordy, Blackjack Mulligan, Ivan Koloff and One Man Gang, anything could happen. Bill Watts: And I can’t tell you who but one of the biggest names in all of professional wrestling is in the building tonight just to win that Battle Royal a get a shot at the North American Title. Jim Ross: Any hint Mr. President? Bill Watts: Sorry Jim. You’ll just have to wait like everyone else, but I can tell you, you won’t have to wait for great action. Also, on tonight’s show the One Man Gang with Ernie Ladd against Terry Taylor. Hacksaw Butch Reed will take on Kruscher Kruschev. It will be Wahoo McDaniel & Blackjack Mulligan vs The Barbarian & Haku with Kevin Sullivan. Also, we will see Harley Race & Bruiser Brody take on Larry Zbyszko & Tarzan Goto and the winner earns the last spot in the Mid-South Tag team tournament next week in the Sportatorium in Dallas, Texas. Jim Ross: You weren’t lying Cowboy. That is some night of wrestling. Let’s get to the ring. MATCH: One Man Gang with Ernie Ladd vs Terry Taylor Before the bout One Man Gang and Ernie Ladd stop by the interview desk for a word with Jim & Cowboy. Ernie Ladd: Okay Watts… the bodies are mounting. The hospital bills are piling up! How many people is One Man Gang going to have to hurt before you give him what he deserves…. A Mid-South title shot against that big dummy… The Hack Butch Reed. Cowboy Bill Watts: I believe you mean Hacksaw Butch Reed… and while I agree that One Man Gang has been impressive since his arrival her in Mid-South Wrestling…. A good three-week period does not necessarily earn you a title match. When OMG has earned that match with Butch Reed, he certainly will get it. Ernie Ladd: Forgive if your word means nothing to me. I have been lied to by you over and over again. Just remember one thing… each and every body is on you. Each ambulance trip by a wrestler could have been prevented by you, OH, and by the way, I hope you or anyone here doesn’t think Terry Taylor stands a chance tonight. Cowboy Bill Watts: In fact, I do. It’s time you and your mouth head to the ring. As for the match, Taylor understands what he is up against so he plays a bit of cat and mouse where he can use his speed and skill to overcome the massive weight difference. While it works, he is unable to take Gang off his feet. Eventually Taylor is caught and OMG begins to go to work. The fans get behind Taylor who makes a comeback and is about to hit the ropes for the 5 ARM to try and take the gang down but…. WHAM… Taylor is tripped by Ladd. WHAM…. 747 Splash by One Man Gang. 1…2…3! With the help of Ladd, One Man Gang continues his winning ways, but it doesn’t seem to be enough. Ladd orders Gang to hit Taylor with another splash. WHAM… 747 Splash by Gang. Ladd orders another. The crowd erupts as here comes Hacksaw Butch Reed and Iceman Parsons. WHAM… Butt Bump by Parsons on Ladd WHAM… Top Rope Football Tackle by Reed on Gang and Gang actually falls through the ropes out onto the floor. WHAM…. Reed tosses Ladd out of the ring and he lands right by Gang. The crowd erupts as the fan favorites are in control of the ring and daring Ladd and Gang to return but instead, they slowly make their way to the locker room. Reed and Parsons help Taylor up, but we can see the damage has been done to his ribs. A quick, heated promo by Reed as he is begging Bill Watts to sign a match for him with Gang. COMMERCIAL + PROMOS FOR THE UPCOMING EVENT IN THE SPORTATORIUM MATCH: Wahoo McDaniel & Blackjack Mulligan vs The Barbarian & Haku with Kevin Sullivan As you could expect, the bout is a war! Also, as you could expect, Sullivan just can’t help himself and gets involved early and often. The ref has no choice but to call for the bell and disqualify Sullivan’s men but that does nothing to stop Sullivan and his goons. The Barbarian and Haku focus on Mulligan which after a minute or two, even the big man from Texas can’t handle these two monsters. With chaos and carnage all over the ring, the crowd explodes… Jim Ross: Oh, I don’t believe it… yes…. Here comes the American Dream…. It’s Dusty Rhodes. Rhodes is like a house of fire. Right hands and Bionic Elbows are flying! Sullivan goes down… Haku goes down… Barbarian goes down. Now with the numbers game being even, the good guys are all over Sullivan and his men! Jim Ross: I don’t believe my eyes… Sullivan is retreating. Haku and the Barbarian are running away. Oh my…. This has been a long time coming. Dusty Rhodes grabs the house microphone… Dusty Rhodes: Keeebbbin….. Keeeebbbin Sullivan….Where ya going? Come on Sullivan… Get your coward behind back in this ring! I’ve been away for 90 days! 90 days I’ve had to think about how goooood it would be to get my hands on you! The American Dream had to sit back…. Sit back and watch you hurt my fiends! Leon White…. Mike Graham…. Wahoo McDaniel and I could do nothing about it. The American Dream was suspended for fire-balling the head of the Sheik and all I could think about was how upset I was that I didn’t get the chance to finish you also. Wellllll, the Dream is back! Blackjack Mulligan is back! Wahoo McDaniel’s here…. And together, we are going to make you wish your momma raised a lawyer or a doctor. We gonna hurt you like you hurt others. Sullivan….I can’t wait to end your career if you Wiiiilllllll! Oh its good to be back. Jim Ross: Ok, Bill…. Was Dusty Rhodes the surprise entrant into the battle royal tonight. Cowboy Bill Watts: Well now that the cats out of the bag, fans make sure to stay tuned to the entire show tonight as Dusty Rhodes will be back in an NWA ring for the first time in 1986! COMMERCIAL + PROMOS FOR THE UPCOMING EVENT IN THE SPORTATORIUM MATCH: MID SOUTH TAG TEAM TOURNAMENT SPOT ON THE LINE: Harley Race & Bruiser Brody vs Larry Zbyszko & Tarzan Goto Pre-Match Interview: Bruiser Brody: Bill Watts…It’s good to be back in the NWA and its good to be in the ring with the legend himself… Harley Race. Harley called me up last week and said that weasel, Larry Zbyszko is back and this time he has some goon from China with him and he asked me if I could come down and lend him a hand. It’s not everyday you get a call from the 8-time World Champion but when you do you listen. Harley has done more for this sport then anyone I can think of and I’m just not going to allow a no-good low life like Zbyszko to try and make a name for himself at the expense of Harley. Tonight, is the first step to eliminating Zbyszko and the Tarzan Goto! Harley Race: I dare you… I dare you Zbyszko to try some of your funny business tonight. King Kong Brody hear is one of the toughest, wildest, most unpredictable men in all of wrestling history and I am just glad he is in my corner! As for the match, each wrestler gets some time to shine but in the end with Race and Zbyszko outside of the ring and Brody and Goto bleeding inside the ring, we see Goto come off the ring for the running lariat…. WHAM… Race is able to trip up Goto from the outside. WHAM…. Double Leg Drop by Brody WHAM… Running Knee Drop by Brody 1….2…3! The crowd pops as Brody gets the win and rushes out to help Race vs Zbyszko! We get a minute or two of the babyfaces doing some heel action to Zbyszko, but it all ends when the ref threatens to reverse the decision. Once order is restored, Watts and Ross hype up the fact that Brody and Race are now officially the last team into the Mid-South Tag Team Tournament set for April 19th at the Sportotorium with the other teams being …. Ivan Koloff & Kruscher Kruschev, The Fabulous Freebirds, Ron Bass & Black Bart, Terry Taylor & Iceman Parsons, Haku & The Barbarian, and “Killer” Brooks & Jimmy Jack. COMMERCIAL + PROMOS FOR THE UPCOMING EVENT IN THE SPORTATORIUM $10,000 OVER THE TOP ROPE BATTLE ROYAL: WINNER GETS NORTH AMERICAN TITLE SHOT IN DALLAS (HIGHLIGHTS) -Kevin Sullivan kept up his antics but this time he might have just achieved exactly what he wanted as he took out some sort of golden spike and stuck in right into the eye of Wahoo McDaniel. Wahoo was then tossed outside the ring where he was rolling around in severe discomfort as doctor’s attempted to help him, but it seemed like this gruesome incident has caused Wahoo a severe injury. - One Gang ended up eliminating each other as they were bearhugging each other against the ropes as Killer Tim Brooks pulled down the rope and the two toppled over out onto the floor as the brawl continued. -Harley Race, Bruiser Brody, Larry Z and Tarzan Goto continued their brawl from earlier on but this led to some eliminating sneak attacks by the Russians (Ivan and Kruschev). -Eventually we have a final 4 of Terry Gordy, Dusty Rhodes, Ivan Koloff and Kruscher Kruschev. Interesting thing here was that Terry Gordy made an alliance with the American Dream which the crowd loved. We basically have a wild tag team bout for a few minutes until Terry Gordy is hit by a low blow by Ivan. Ivan and Kruschev double team Dusty and eliminate him in a wild Bear Hug by Ivan, Sickle by Kruscher combo. WHAM… Double Clothesline by Bam Bam and both Russians are eliminated. Terry Gordy, the winner of the $10,000 is going to have a busy night in the Sportatorium as he and the Freebirds will be in the Mid-South tag team tournament and he will also be facing Jake “The Snake” Roberts for the NWA North American Title! COMMERCIAL + PROMOS FOR THE UPCOMING EVENT IN THE SPORTATORIUM Jim Ross: Before we go off the air, we have a note that was just passed along to us by the doctors on site and Wahoo McDaniel has suffered a serious eye injury and will not be able to wrestle in the Mid-South tag team tournament. We wish Wahoo a speedy recover as that was a disgusting act by Kevin Sullivan. Bill, what is going to happen in the tournament as it seems Blackjack Mulligan is without a partner? Cowboy Bill Watts: First of all, the tournament is second to the health of Wahoo and we wish him a speedy recover. I had time on out last commercial break to go to the locker room to discuss the situation with Blackjack Mulligan and I think we have the perfect solution… Blackjack’s new partner will be none other than “THE AMERICAN DREAM” DUSTY RHODES! Jim Ross: Oh my…. Kevin Sullivan… you have crossed the line and I bet if the American Dream or Blackjack Mulligan has the chance to get revenge for their buddy Wahoo, they will not hesitate to do so. So long from the Sooner State! DARK MATCHES Jimmy Jack defeats Steve Simpson with the Bulldog after help by Killer Tim Brooks DJ Peterson defeats Mark Fleming with a powerslam in this match of babyfaces that began and ended with a handshake. Michael Hayes & Ron Bass wrestled to a Double-Count out in a grudge match that saw the rest of the Freebirds attack Bass after the bout. Black Bart came to his rescue, but the numbers game still allowed the Freebirds to come out on top of this brawl. MID SOUTH TITLE MATCH Hacksaw Butch Reed defeated Kruscher Khrushchev with a Top Rope Shoulder Block. Uncle Ivan quickly attacked after the bell and then the situation got worse for the champ as One Man Gang hit the ring with Ernie Ladd, and they got even for earlier action as Gang followed up the Big Boot by Ladd with a 747 splash of his own. The babyfaces from the locker room rushed the ring and to Reed’s credit, he left under his own power but first he grabbed the house mic and was screaming about how bad he wanted a match with One Man Gang. NWA MID SOUTH WRESTLING WITH JIM ROSS & BILL WATTS APRIL 19, 1986 SPORTATORIUM DALLAS, TX Jim Ross: Hey everybody! Welcome to a special three- hour episode of Mid-South Wrestling coming to you from the world famous Sportatorium in downtown Dallas, Texas. I’m Jim Ross and it’s certainly my privilege to have NWA President, Cowboy Bill Watts as my partner on today’s show. Thank you, Bill, for being with us. We have an historic event instore for everybody tonight. We will be seeing an 8 team tournament to crown new Mid-South Tag Team Champions. Also, Terry Gordy will try to take the North American Title from Jake “The Snake” Roberts and Magnum T.A. will be taking on the Russian Nightmare, Nikita Koloff in an NWA World Heavyweight Title matches. Bill Watts: Tonight will be another great night for the NWA but before we get to the ring, I have a special announcement for everyone. This week, the NWA added Western States Wrestling to its great family of NWA promotions. Now, wrestling fans all across the great state of Texas (the fans in the Sportatorium give a loud cheer) New Mexico, Oklahoma and Colorado will be able see great NWA action in person. That’s not all! Ted Turner, the great owner of WTBS, Channel 17, is all in on NWA Wrestling and he will air Western States Wrestling each and every Saturday morning at 9:35. Trust me fans, you will not want to miss a moment of the action. Western States Wrestling has a reputation of being a territory full of nonstop action where only the toughest can survive. Jim Ross: Wow…. What a huge addition this is going to be for the NWA and Superstation 17. It seems like 1986 has just began but it is already an historic year for the NWA and when tonight is over, more history will be made. Let’s get to the ring for the first match in the Mid-South tag team tournament. MID-SOUTH TAG TEAM TOURNAMENT: FIRST ROUND MATCH “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes & Blackjack Mulligan vs “Killer” Tim Brooks & Jimmy Jack The problem in this one was that Brooks and Jimmy Jack wanted to take this one to the gutter right away which was right up the alley of Rhodes and Mulligan. In the end, we see a clean victory when 6’9, 340 pound Blackjack Mulligan followed up Dusty’s Bionic Elbow on Brooks with his own flying back elbow smash to the face. Brooks basically collapsed and Mulligan locked in the brain claw as the ref made the 3 count. Watts and Ross wondered with all of their size, talent and experience, if anyone could beat Rhodes and Mulligan. MID-SOUTH TAG TEAM TOURNAMENT: FIRST ROUND MATCH Terry Taylor & Iceman Parsons vs “The Russian Bear” Nikita Koloff & Kruscher Kruschoff The good news here is that Taylor and Parsons continue to be on the same page and to work well together. The bad news was that the ref, Alfred Neely, was knocked down when he got in the way of a butt bump by Iceman on Koloff. Koloff managed to smuggle a small chain out of his trunks and clobber Iceman right in the jaw and Parsons went down like a sack of potatoes. Taylor never saw this as he was brawling on the outside with Kruschev. Neely recovered enough to make the 3 count and the Russians move on. Watts and Ross hope to God that when all is said and done that Koloff and Kruschev don’t leave with the Mid-South tag titles and Nikita with the NWA World Title. MID-SOUTH TAG TEAM TOURNAMENT: FIRST ROUND MATCH Harley Race & Brusier Brody vs Haku & The Barbarian with Kevin Sullivan Ross and Watts wonder if Sullivan is going to be the tipping point in this battle of wild men and it didn’t take long to see answer that question. Three minutes into the match, Sullivan tried to give his team an advantage as the Barbarian and Brody rolled out onto the floor. Jim Ross: Watch out, here comes Sullivan. WHAM…. Big knee lift by Brody on Sullivan. Sullivan staggers back into the enemie’s corner. WHAM…. Suplex by Harley Race on Sullivan on the concreate and that is basically the end of Sullivan for the night. The problem here for both teams was that it was big move after big move and every pin attempt ended up with a save from the corner. Eventually we end up with all 4 men in the ring at one time. Just picture pure chaos where anything could happen …… and did! We hear the fans moan as Jim Ross announces that Larry Zbyszko and Tarzan Goto are heading to the ring. Zbyszko with his Nun-Chucks and Goto was a bamboo cane. As Zbyszko and Goto hit the ring, they go right after Harley Race. The ref calls for the bell giving Race and Brody the win. The real problem was something we have seen in the past. Kevin Sullivan could care less about titles! He is not the least bit upset and Zbyszko and his Asian monster! Sullivan tells his men to help them and now it is 5 against 2! As tough as Race and Brody are they stand no chance here. From the nunchucks to the bamboo cane to Haku’s savat kick to the Barbarian’s top rope shoulder block and Sullivan’s continuous kicks and punches, Race and Brody are left in a heap in the center of the ring. Watts and Ross wonder if Brody and Race will even be able to come out for the next match. MID-SOUTH TAG TEAM TOURNAMENT: FIRST ROUND MATCH The Fabulous Freebirds vs Ron Bass & Black Bart Before the match starts, Bill Watts informs the fans that the Freebirds will not be able to switch teammates during the tournament and that it will be Terry Gordy and Buddy Roberts doing the wrestling and Michael Hayes acting as a “spectator.” Jim Ross wonders if that is such a good plan as Terry Gordy will also be wrestling for the NWA North American Title tonight. Bill Watts agreed but he has learned never to question the plan of the Freebirds as they are one of the most successful tag teams in NWA history. As for the bout, it’s personal. These two teams have been after each other for over a month now and they waste no time bothering with the technical stuff. This is easily the longest match of the first round as it goes over twenty minutes and includes many momentum changes with everybody getting some time to wrestle from the top. Eventually we see Bass and Bart in control as Bass connects with the Texas Gourdbuster on Buddy Roberts. Bass tags in Bart and we see a double clothesline from the team known as “The Wild Bunch.” Terry Gordy rushes in to stop the double team only to be stopped by ref Jerry Usher. Black Bart climbs to top rope setting up the Texas Trash Compactor (Top Rope Double Leg Drop) WHAM… with the ref dealing with Gordy, Michale Hayes came from behind and shoved Bart to the canvass. Ron Bass is now in hot pursuit of Hayes. It is a race to see who gets up first…. Buddy Roberts or Black Bart! The fans are cheering on Bart who is using the ropes to help him up. Roberts gets to his knees, rolls over and the crowd moans as he makes the tag. Bart is up and goes to his corner but Bass is missing. WHAM…. Gordy, at full speed, crushes Bart into the corner. Bart crumbles to the ground. Gordy drags him to the center. He goes for the piledriver…. Blocked by Black Bart. Gordy reloads…. WHAM…. Piledriver by Gordy. Bass sees what happens and is rushing back to the ring. 1….2…..3! WHAM… Bass with a knee to the back of Gordy but it is too late to make the save! The Freebirds move on. MID-SOUTH TAG TEAM TOURNAMENT: SEMI-FINALS The American Dream Dusty Rhodes & Blackjack Mulligan vs “The Russian Bear” Ivan Koloff & Kruscher Kruschev The love for Rhodes and Mulligan was through the roof here as you would expect against the Russians. We get a pretty good brawl in this one and as the action turned to chaos, we see all 4 men in the ring. With the ref struggling to gain control, Koloff tries the same trick as he did in the first match. Ivan once again reaches into his trunks and pulls out the small chain. He wraps the chain around his fist and lines up the American Dream…. WHAM…. Dusty ducks under the right hand by Koloff and catches Ivan with a bionic elbow. Dream takes a peek at the ref who is still dealing with Mulligan and Kruscher. Dusty reaches down and takes the chain off the Russian Bear and he wraps it around his own hand. He looks to the crowd for approval, and they more than grant it. Dusty drags Koloff up by his head. WHAM… Dusty with a huge blow to the head of Koloff and Koloff simply collapses. Dusty covers Ivan as Mulligan sends Kruschev through the ropes with a big boot. The ref turns and begins the count. 1….2….3! Dusty and Mulligan move on to the finals. MID-SOUTH TAG TEAM TOURNAMENT: SEMI-FINALS Harley Race & Brusier Brody vs The Fabulous Freebirds The problem here for Race and Brody was that it was obvious that they were less than 100% after the attack after the first match by Zbyszko and Goto and that makes a match against the Freebirds really difficult. Give Race and Brody their due. They gave it their all and had the Freebirds on the ropes. Michael Hayes seemed pretty wary of Harley and Bruiser so he stayed away from the action as much as he could. That is until the end. Terry Gordy scooped up Brody for a big powerslam and then he dragged the big man up by his wild hair only to toss his out of the ring through the ropes. The camera picks up Michael Hayes scampering under the ring as the ref began his count on Brody. Brody seemed to be struggling to get up to his feet by Jim Ross credited that to the fact that he has really taken some punishment in this match. As the ref got to 5, Brody was still on the floor. It looked like he was trying to get up but just couldn’t get his legs under him. The camera on the other side gets a peek at Brody and we see Michael Hayes, under the ring apron, holding Brody’s legs. The crowd starts screaming and Harley hustles over to see what is going on. Ref’s count…6….7….. Race sees Hayes and goes after him. 8….. WHAM…. Race clobbers Hayes…. 9….. Brody up and trying to get up on the apron to break the count. 10! Winners by count-out….. The Fabulous Freebirds! Michael Hayes is on of the dirtiest players in the game. NWA NORTH AMERICAN TITLE MATCH Jake “The Snake” Roberts vs Terry “Bam Bam” Gordy Maybe it’s because of who Jake “The Snake” is or maybe the fans here in the Boutwell Auditorium remember that Gordy sided with the American Dream in last week’s Battle Royal against the Russians but the fans are clearly behind the Freebird. As for the match, it is like watching one man want the match to be like a bull in a china closet while the other wants it to be like a corrupt game of 3 Card Monty. Bam Bam struggles to get his hands on the sleazy snake but when he does, it is one power move after another. Roberts is able keep Gordy at bay with eye rakes, knees to the gut and a few running clotheslines. In the end, Gordy seemed to be in control but, he paused for just a second and almost was caught by Roberts with a DDT. Gordy somehow shoved him off at the last second. As Roberts came off the ropes…. WHAM…… Football Tackle by Gordy followed by a Piledriver by Gordy. 1….2….3! The crowd with a nice pop as Jim Ross announces we have a new North American Champion! MID-SOUTH TAG TEAM TOURNAMENT: FINALS “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes & Blackjack Mulligan vs The Fabulous Freebirds Interesting thing to note here was that the fans who had supported Gordy just a few minutes ago, we now solidly against him. Jim Ross called this the Michael Hayes Effect as anyone who sided with the leader of the Freebirds will receive the wrath of the fans. The match is a struggle for both teams after a long night of wrestling, but Ross and Watts are amazed at the stamina of Terry Gordy as this is his third match in a row and 4th of the night against the likes of Ron Bass, Black Bart, Bruiser Brody, Jake Roberts, Dusty Rhodes and Blackjack Mulligan. Back and forth we go until the ref gets in the way of a Terry Gordy Irish Whip on Dusty Rhodes. With Dusty and the ref down, Michael Hayes once again sees his chance to impact the bout. He orders Buddy Roberts to attack Mulligan. While this doesn’t go well for Roberts, it takes Mulligan away from the action in the ring. Hayes tells Gordy to get Dusty up. Hayes grabs a chair …. WHAM…. Dusty broke free of Gordy at the last second and Hayes clobbers Terry Gordy. The look of shock on the face of Hayes is priceless while Dusty quickly covers Gordy. 1…2….3! Rhodes and Mulligan are the new Mid-South tag team champs as the crowd goes wild! Roberts and Hayes are dejected as they go to help up their fallen teammate! WHAM…. Jim Ross: I don’t believe what I just saw. Michael Hayes is beating Terry Gordy with the chair. Buddy Roberts throws his hands up and leaves in frustration. Over and over again, Hayes hits Gordy with the chair. WHAM…. Big Boot by Blackjack Mulligan on Hayes and he falls out to the floor. Mulligan dares Hayes to come back but Michael thinks better of it and heads to the locker room. Dusty and Mulligan help the battered Gordy and the three champs leave to a huge ovation! NWA WORLD TITLE MATCH Magnum T.A. vs “The Russian Nightmare” Nikita Koloff Let’s just get to the finish with this monster of a main event that was announced as time remaining time limit. Irish Whip by Magnum T.A. on Nikita. Magnum goes for the belly to belly suplex, but in a display of super human strength, the Russian Nightmare blocks it. T.A. and Nikita stare at each other for a second. Nikita with a monstrous scream…. WHAM…. Russian Sickle. Nikita covers Magnum. 1….2…. DING DING…. Three. Jim Ross: Folks, Magnum T.A., by the skin if his teeth, has successfully defended his NWA World Title as this bout has ended in a time limit draw. What a night of wrestling we just saw. Don’t forget to join us next Saturday on WTBS at our regular scheduled time. So long from the Lone Star State. NWA MID SOUTH WRESTLING WITH JIM ROSS & BILL WATTS MAY 1, 1986 IRISH McNEIL’S BOYS CLUB SHREVEPORT,LA Jim Ross: Hey everybody! I’m Jim Ross and it’s certainly my privilege to have NWA President, Cowboy Bill Watts as my partner on today’s show. Thank you, Bill, for being with us. Folks, we have so much to get to tonight after a wild night of Wrestling from the Sportatorium in Dallas last week. Bill Watts: You said a mouth full there Jim. First, congratulations to the new Mid-South tag team champions, “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes and Blackjack Mulligan. They were able to somehow, be the last team standing in that tremendous tag team tournament. Jim Ross: That was one of the best tournaments I have seen in a long, long time. We also have a new North American Champion as Terry Gordy beat Jake “the Snake” Roberts. Bill Watts: The question is…. Is Terry Gordy still a member of the Freebirds? Jim Ross: We will hopefully get an answer to the question a little later as we will hear from both Michael Hayes and Terry Gordy. Bill Watts: That will be interesting as will be “The Russian Nightmare” Nikita Koloff’s first match since he nearly became the NWA World Champion in Dallas. Jim Ross: Wow… that was some match he had with Magnum T.A. and even Magnum would say he is lucky to still be the champ! Instead of giving match results today, I am going to update everybody on a few wrestlers…. 1. Michael Hayes & Terry Gordy Michael Hayes participated in singles competition tonight against Vernon Biggs. Ross and Watts made a big deal of Hayes wrestling alone which they speculated meant the end to the Freebirds. After the match we get an emotional interview with Hayes. Jim Ross: I got to ask…. Why did you attack your fellow freebird, Terry Gordy at the Sportatorium? Michael Hayes: (rather subdued) Jim Ross…. You know that tag team wrestling has always been kind of my specialty. In fact… it has been the specialty of the Fabulous Freebirds. When I first came back to the NWA 4 months ago, I told you that I almost left wrestling. I told you if not for a buddy of mine, I would have been happy partying down on Bad Street USA. The reason I was done was that Terry “Bam Bam” Gordy had gotten to full of himself out on the West Coast. He started putting himself in front of the Freebirds and going after singles titles. Buddy Jack and I gave him our blessing as long as he put the team first. Well, Terry and his ego couldn’t do that. He always had to be the man. Instead of being satisfied by being the best tag team in the world, he had to be the center of attention. I almost lost my cool out there on the West Coast but instead of attacking my brother, I decided to take my ball and go home. Well Terry came to me around New Year’s Eve and said… Michael…. Let’s put our problems behind us. Let’s put the band back together again. Let’s get Freebird Mania back to where it belongs! Me being the man that I am was willing to let by gones be by gones. Let’s fast forward to the other night? Who decided the Mid-South Tag Team Titles weren’t enough? Terry Gordy. Who decided he had to go after the NWA North American Title on the same night as the big tournament? Terry Gordy. Who cost us the titles? Terry Gordy. I mean how much more do I have to take…. The ANSWER IS NO MORE. Terry, you and I aren’t through but we are through being on the same side. There is a lot more fight in this Freebird…. And it really hurts me to wonder if there will ever be The Freebirds again. While the new North American Champion, Terry Gordy was not in Shreveport, we did see a quick clip of Gordy after he was hit with a chair by Michael Hayes in the Sportatorium and he kept screaming….. Why? Over and over again. 2. Wahoo McDaniel: Jim Ross informed us that Wahoo will not be with us for the foreseeable future as he has some contractual obligations all over the country. He explains that Wahoo is disappointed that he was not able to be here tonight and that he guarantees that he is healthy and fully recovered from the attack by Kevin Sullivan and that he will try to be back in the NWA real soon. 3. Ted Dibiase & Dr. Death Steve Williams To say that the NWA World Tag Team champs are fuming is an understatement. They are white hot after their recent trip to Amarillo where Tojo Yamamoto’s Zaibatsu stable of Mr. Pogo, Kendo Nagasaki, Kim Duk and Jumbo Tsurata not only attacked them after their victory over Pogo and Nagasaki but they STOLE the NWA tag titles. This interview was so full of Japanese slurs that even the very patriotic Bill Watts was a little offended. Dibiase and Dr. Death ended the interview by saying that Zaibatsu better return these titles if they know what is good for them. Bill Watts tried to calm the champs down by letting them know that whether or not they have the actual belts doesn’t matter as they are still recognized as the champs. This does little to help the demeanor of Dibiase and Doc. 4. Nikita Koloff with Uncle Ivan and Kruscher Kruschev After having the bell sound for the time limit draw just before the ref was to complete the 3 count making Nikita Koloff the NWA World Champ, you could bet that the Russians were red hot once again. Think of every name in the book that Ivan could have called the cheating Americans and you still would have missed a few. Ivan did end the interview by making some sense here as he said that even though Magnum T.A. is still the so-called NWA World Champion, he knows that he could never beat Nikita. Ivan went on to announce that he and Kruscher are also coming after the NWA Mid-South Tag team champions, “The American Dream” and Blackjack Mulligan. 5. Hacksaw Butch Reed In an interview with Bill Watts, it is apparent that Reed, the Mid-South Champion, is not the least bit concerned with One Man Gang and Ernie Ladd and that he is looking forward to next week’s match against the fat man in the Sam Houston Coliseum. 6. Harley Race & Bruiser Brody Another group full of anger this week as they want a piece of Larry Zbyszko and Tarzan Goto after they were attacked during the recent tag team tournament. This will be another bout the fans in Houston are looking forward to next week. 7. Leon “Baby Bull” White This was by far the strangest and scariest moment of the night. Leon was with Jim Ross saying that his broken arm was just about heeled and that he should be back in action in just a week or so. This is when Kevin Sullivan, the man responsible for the injury, appeared. Ross wanted no trouble and Sullivan guaranteed that there would be none but it was “Time for the transformation to begin.” When asked what that meant, Sullivan just started to laugh. This is when two huge men wearing dark hoods, presumable Haku and the Barbarian, came up from behind White and put a hood over Leon. They quickly secured it and tied his hands behind his back. Sullivan stopped laughing long enough to say, “Let’s Go.” The trio quickly dragged Leon out as Ross and Watts were calling for help. Dusty and Mulligan raced out but were to late. Sullivan was gone. Jim Ross: Folks, I have no idea what has just happened. We will try and have some answers for you next week. So long from the Pelican state. Mid-South Title Angle: One Man Gang with Ernie Ladd in search of a title shot against Hacksaw Butch Reed. After a title defense against Ron Slinker where Reed finished off his opponent with a top rope football tackle, Reed gave a spirited promo answering the challenge laid down by Gang and Ladd two weeks ago as Reed has agreed to face Gang MATCH One Man Gang with Ernie Ladd defeats Mike Graham with the 747 Splash In a quick interview, One Man Gang and Ernie Ladd make it clear that they are still waiting for Butch Reed to put his Mid-South Title on the line. Later in the show, we get the answer as Butch Reed accepts the challenge for next week in the HemisFair arena. COMMERCIAL BREAK + PROMOS FOR THE MONDAY’S CARD IN SAN ANTONIO The American Dream Dusty Rhodes & Blackjack Mulligan vs “The Russian Bear” Ivan Koloff & Kruscher Kruschev The love for Rhodes and Mulligan was through the roof here as you would expect against the Russians. We get a pretty good brawl in this one and as the action turned to chaos, we see all 4 men in the ring. With the ref struggling to gain control, Koloff tries the same trick as he did in the first match. Ivan once again reaches into his trunks and pulls out the small chain. He wraps the chain around his fist and lines up the American Dream…. WHAM…. Dusty ducks under the right hand by Koloff and catches Ivan with a bionic elbow. Dream takes a peek at the ref who is still dealing with Mulligan and Kruscher. Dusty reaches down and takes the chain off the Russian Bear and he wraps it around his own hand. He looks to the crowd for approval, and they more than grant it. Dusty drags Koloff up by his head. WHAM… Dusty with a huge blow to the head of Koloff and Koloff simply collapses. Dusty covers Ivan as Mulligan sends Kruschev through the ropes with a big boot. The ref turns and begins the count. 1….2….3! Dusty and Mulligan move on to the finals. MID-SOUTH TAG TEAM TOURNAMENT: SEMI-FINALS Harley Race & Brusier Brody vs The Fabulous Freebirds The problem here for Race and Brody was that it was obvious that they were less than 100% after the attack after the first match by Zbyszko and Goto and that makes a match against the Freebirds really difficult.

The camera on the other side gets a peek at Brody and we see Michael Hayes, under the ring apron, holding Brody’s legs. The crowd starts screaming and Harley hustles over to see what is going on. Ref’s count…6….7….. Race sees Hayes and goes after him. 8….. WHAM…. Race clobbers Hayes…. 9….. Brody up and trying to get up on the apron to break the count. 10! Winners by count-out….. The Fabulous Freebirds! Michael Hayes is on of the dirtiest players in the game. NWA NORTH AMERICAN TITLE MATCH Jake “The Snake” Roberts vs Terry “Bam Bam” Gordy Maybe it’s because of who Jake “The Snake” is or maybe the fans here in the Boutwell Auditorium remember that Gordy sided with the American Dream in last week’s Battle Royal against the Russians but the fans are clearly behind the Freebird. As for the match, it is like watching one man want the match to be like a bull in a china closet while the other wants it to be like a corrupt game of 3 Card Monty.

Back and forth we go until the ref gets in the way of a Terry Gordy Irish Whip on Dusty Rhodes. With Dusty and the ref down, Michael Hayes once again sees his chance to impact the bout. He orders Buddy Roberts to attack Mulligan. While this doesn’t go well for Roberts, it takes Mulligan away from the action in the ring. Hayes tells Gordy to get Dusty up. Hayes grabs a chair ….

Mulligan dares Hayes to come back but Michael thinks better of it and heads to the locker room. Dusty and Mulligan help the battered Gordy and the three champs leave to a huge ovation! NWA WORLD TITLE MATCH Magnum T.A. vs “The Russian Nightmare” Nikita Koloff Let’s just get to the finish with this monster of a main event that was announced as time remaining time limit.

Don’t forget to join us next Saturday on WTBS at our regular scheduled time. So long from the Lone Star State. NWA MID SOUTH WRESTLING WITH JIM ROSS & BILL WATTS MAY 8, 1986 SAM HOUSTON COLISEUM HOUSTON, TX Jim Ross: Hey everybody! Welcome to another great episode of Mid-South Wrestling coming to you from the Sam Houston Coliseum in Houston, Texas. I’m Jim Ross and it’s certainly my privilege to have NWA President, Cowboy Bill Watts as my partner on today’s show. Thank you, Bill, for being with us. Before we get to tonight’s show, we must first bring you back to last week and the bizarre actions of Kevin Sullivan. We see a short video clip where Sullivan interrupted an interview by Leon “Baby Bull’ White. This served as the needed distraction as two men in black hoods came out and put a third hood over Leon White and then the trio dragged Leon away while Sullivan was saying that “it was time for the transformation to begin.” Jim Ross: Very scary ending to last week’s show. What do you make of it Bill? Bill Watts: To be honest with you Jim, when it involves Kevin Sullivan, one never knows what to think. I can tell you that none of them have been seen since. The police have been contacted and there is not a trace of Sullivan, Leon White or the two hooded minions that helped Sullivan carry out his devious plan. Jim Ross: Well, whatever is going on, we hope Leon White is safe. If and when we get any information, we will pass it on to everyone immediately.

Newcomers, Frankie “Thumper” Lancaster will face Gary Young. We also have a double main event for you as we will see two title matches! First, it will be The American Dream, Dusty Rhodes & Blackjack Mulligan taking on “Kruscher Kruschev & Ivan Koloff and finally, One Man Gang with Ernie Ladd gets his shot at the Mid-South title and Hacksaw Butch Reed. Jim Ross: That is one jam-packed night of wrestling son let’s head to the ring. MATCH: Iceman Parsons defeats Hercules Simms with the butt bump Parsons, who came out to “We Are Family, had the crowd eating out of the palm of his hand and it is clear that he is totally forgiven for all of his questionable tactics over the past year or so. COMMERCIAL + PROMOS FOR MONDAY’S CARD IN SAN ANTONIO MATCH: Gary Young defeated Frankie “Thumper” Lancaster in impressive fashion. Young connected with a nasty spine breaker for the win in a match where he controlled most of the action. While his ability was top notch, his attitude was bottom rung. He constantly insulted his opponent while gloating throughout the match which drew the ire of the fans. Post-Match Interview Gary Young: It don’t matter where I am…. Each night before I get in the ring I look out at the crowd and see nothing but ugly. I mean one porker after another. But Houston…. Houston, you take the cake…. And eat it to. Wow… what a bunch of moo moo’d here. After I look at the crowd, I look across the ring and it only gets worse. It don’t matter if its Theresa Taylor, Fido Reed or Magnum P.U. …. They are some sorry losers who don’t stand a chance against Gary Young. Let me tell you world… Let me tell you U.S.A…. Gary Young is here to stay and I’m kicking butt and taking names and there aint nothing you can do about it. Jim Ross: Well that was one arrogant man. I think there are plenty of wrestlers around here who can’t wait to take him down a peg! COMMERCIAL + PROMOS FOR MONDAY’S CARD IN SAN ANTONIO MID-SOUTH TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH: American Dream Dusty Rhodes & Blackjack Mulligan © vs The Russian Beat Ivan Koloff & Krusher Kruschev This was the one that nearly took the roof off the Sam Houston Coliseum as Rhodes & Mulligan vs any Russians would be as big a good vs evil match as there could be. Give Dusty his due here as he did a great job of bumping and selling for the big Russians but eventually, we get to that wild 2 on 2 action where Mulligan is slamming heads and Dusty is juking-jiving- throwing the right hands-dropping the bionic elbows. Jim Ross: Look Out…. Here come Nikita. Nikita is like a house a fire connecting with big right hand and big right hand on both Mulligan and Rhodes. Oh… yes… here comes the NWA Champion Magnum T.A…. he is all over Nikita. Nikita and T.A. are throwing punches by the dozen and neither man will back down and inch. Finally… with a thunderous ovation, T.A. takes down the Russian Nightmare and all three Russians roll out of the ring and head up the aisle to fight another day. Post-Match Interview Dusty Rhodes: Ya know Bill Watts… the possibilities for a kid growing up in this country are unlimited. They can be anything they want to be if they put their mind to it. They could be a lawyer, a doctor, even the next American Dream, Dusty Rhodes….if you wiiiilllllll baaabay and I sure as heck won’t sit here and let no man from Russia come and take away what the U.S. of A. stands for. Ivan Koloff…. Nikita Koloff….. traitor Darsow….. you now riled up the bear in me and that means trouble for you! Blackjack Mulligan: Hey Koloffs…. You two are good enough to beat a lot of men who sit there are let you squeeze them with that Bear Hug or stand there and let you hit them with that Russian Sickle. Well, the three of us here right now, won’t be standing around. We won’t be letting you do anything, and you will soon find out that you got no chance against us. Koloffs…. Darsow…. Anytime any place! Magnum T.A.: Nikita… I am going to give the Devil his due…. You almost had me in the Sportatorium. The key word there was almost and trust me brother, I will never again let the American fans think this World title might be going home with any Russian. You have motivated me to be better and there is no way a better Magnum T.A. ever gives up this title. Just like Blackjack just said…. Any time-Any Place! COMMERCIAL + PROMOS FOR MONDAY’S CARD IN SAN ANTONIO MID-SOUTH TITLE MATCH: Hacksaw Butch Reed © vs One Man Gang with Ernie Ladd Two big men here doing their best to take the other out. Gang uses his weight well throughout the match and does his best to lean on Reed which begins to take its toll on the champ. Much of Reed’s power is negated and he simply can’t do many of his normal repertoire of moves against someone like Gang. Ernie Ladd, as always, played a major role, as he was involved whenever the ref’s back was turned. The problem was that Reed was able to catch Ladd on the apron once as the ref was admonishing Gang for a knee to the gut. Reed threatened to clobber Ladd which the crowd as in favor off but as he went for the big right hand…. WHAM…. Giant pancake by Gang on Reed and he soars through the ropes and hits the barricade on the outside and is in trouble. The ref begins to count. 1…2…3….4…. Reed has not budged and a camera zooms in and sees Reed is busted open and seems to be out. 5….6….7…. Ladd realizes that Reed is not getting up and goes to try and throw him into the ring. 8….9…. Ladd gets Reed to the apron. 10. One Man Gang, with the help of Ernie Ladd, has defeated Butch Reed by count-out. Ladd and Gang understand that they have not won the title and are a little disappointed while many fans did not know this and exploded with joy when the ring announcer explained that Reed was still the Mid-South Champion. With Reed still out on the floor, a frustrated Ladd looks like a lightbulb has gone on in his head, grabs the title and he and One Man Gang simply walk out. Jim Ross: What is going on around the NWA. People just keep on walking out with other people’s titles. First, Tojo’s group out there in Western States Wrestling and now Ernie Ladd and One Man Gang. Cowboy Bill Watts: As NWA President, I promise you we will not stand for this. If that title is not returned by next week, One Man Gang and Ernie Ladd will be suspended from Mid-South Wrestling. Jim Ross: Well, there you have it. Cowboy Bill Watts means business. Tune in next week to see if One Man Gang and Ernie Ladd will return the Mid-South Title to Hacksaw Butch Reed or if they will be taking some unpaid leave of absence. Also, I promised you that if we heard anything on that strange situation involving Kevin Sullivan and Leon “Baby Bull” White, we would pass along that information. Well…. So far nothing. Not a word from anybody on the whereabouts of those two. Hopefully we will have happy news to that very dangerous situation. Folks, we are out of time. So long from the Lone Star State. DARK MATCHES Terry Taylor survived his match against the Executioner with the end coming with the 5 Arm Bruiser Brody defeated Tarzan Goto in a bloody brawl as he connected with a top rope knee cap right across the temple of Goto. NWA North American Title Match: Terry Gordy © defeated Jake “The Snake” Roberts in a war of attrition as he eventually hit back to back powerslams for the win.
