    CWA Championship Wrestling (Memphis)

    Now that might have been my favorite read of this game so far. I loved seeing how you brought the CWA back to the fans of Memphis and I am so excited about this Lawler/Rich thing. I also liked your Lance Brisco touch. This exchange of talent we had was great for this game and I look forward to reading CWA each week. I also like how fast you got the belts back in place and you have everything in a great place in one week. The Briscos, HTM and Lawler with the belts and the feuds under way.

    UNITED STATES WRESTLING ASSOCIATION

    5/8/1984: WTBS SHOW AIRED NATIONALLY 11:05-12:05 TAPED IN DALLAS, TEXAS BILL MERCER welcomes all the fans to TNT Wrestling from the World’s most Famous Wrestling Arena, the Sportatorium in downtown Dallas. Mercer gives a rundown of tonight’s show and then welcomes Kerry Von Erich to the set. Mercer really puts over how big Kerry’s return last week was for the fans and for everybody in TNT Wrestling. Kerry thanks Bill and says “I knew his father was down with the death of David and all the rest of us down in Florida. For me, family comes first and I had to come back to help Dad out.” All of a sudden the crowd starts to Boo as Hot Stuff Eddie Gilbert and Sheri Martel come on set. Gilbert starts belittling Kerry and says he couldn’t hack it without Daddy’s help. Martel takes over and says “It’s too late Mr. Kerry Von Erich! Eddie Gilbert is in control of TNT and the Heavyweight Title and there is nothing you or Papa Fritz can do about it.” Kerry just smiles and takes it. Finally he responds by saying that he doesn’t want any favoritism and he knows that he has to climb the ranks here in TNT before there is even talk about a title shot. Next, Kerry says to Gilbert, “if you’re so sure you can beat me, how about a little match tonight. Non-title of course.” Hot Stuff does a little back peddling and then answers and says that as the champ he is way too busy for matches against the unranked. The crowd cheers as Fritz comes out and begins by telling Edie Gilbert that he is the champ. Gilbert smiles as if to say I knew that but then Fritz continues “but I am the one in charge of matches. I am the one in charge of your contract. Due to your lack of respect for that, I am ordering you to wrestle Kerry tonight in a Non-Title match and if you don’t, I will strip you of the TNT Title and suspend you.” Gilbert begins to complain but Fritz simply walks off. Gilbert and Sheri trail him and complain all the way until there are off set. Kerry simply smiles as Bill says, “Well Kerry, I guess you have a match to go and get ready for.” Bill Mercer now turns it over to newly hired ring announcer Marc Lawrence for the first match. Match: Sweet Brown Sugar & Brickhouse Brown Vs Steve Travis and Rick McGraw Now this match is high paced and full energy to try and get the Sportatorium crowd going. Sweet Brown Sugar and Brickhouse Brown dance their way to the ring and high five all the fans. As for the match, Sugar and Brown take control after a few momentum changes and the end comes when they connect on a double drop kick on Steve Travis. Brown and Sugar head over to Mercer who really puts over their first victory here in TNT. Both Brickhouse Brown and Sweet Brown Sugar express how excited they are to be here and they know how great the fans here in Texas are. COMMERCIAL BREAK CURT HENNIG with BABY DOLL vs THE MISSING LINK When they come out of break, Bill Mercer is really excited for the next match. He believes that Hennig will have his first real challenge here in TNT against the unpredictable Missing Link. Link comes out first with his face painted green and looking as freakish as ever. Baby Doll leads out Curt Hennig and the fans are excited. It is hard to tell if that is for Hennig or the scantily clad Baby Doll. When they enter the ring, Link comes over to Baby Doll and is gawking at with wide eyes. Baby Doll plays the game and this allows Hennig to get the jump on him as ref Bronco Lubich calls for the bell. Hennig is nearly perfect in this match. He shows power, technique and agility. Except for a moment when Link gained control using a couple of huge forearms, this match was text book for Hennig. The end came when Hennig followed up a dropkick with a Bridging Cradle Plex. Henning and Baby Doll make their way to Mercer where he congratulates them on their victory. The two thank him and Hennig talks real slow and philosophical about how Hot Stuff Eddie Gilbert is inferior to him and that it is only a matter of time before the TNT Championship is around his waist. Baby Doll isn’t so eloquent in her speech but basically calls Sheri Martel every name allowed on TV and says she can’t wait to slap her around. COMMERCIAL BREAK MATCH: BAM BAM BIGELOW VS RICKY GIBSON As the match is getting set to start, Bill Mercer is joined by Dr. D David Schultz. Mercer asks what he is doing here and Schultz goes on to say that Fritz had made a mistake in the program tonight and did not give him a match and he knew that the fans here in Dallas couldn’t go a week without seeing him. Mercer just says, “uh ok.” As the match gets started, Bigelow sees Schultz so he puts on a show. All Mercer can say is poor Ricky Gibson. Bigelow makes an example out of Gibson and beats him from pillar to post. Every move was better than the last one but Dr. D makes some point on how each move was done wrong or how if Gibson was better, Bigelow couldn’t have done that. The match comes to a merciful end after the near 400 pound Bigelow followed up a diving head-butt with a nasty power bomb. Ref David Manning made the 3 count. When the match ends, Schultz makes his way to the ring where the two begin to scream at each other. Bigelow dares Schultz to get into the ring. He even sits on the middle rope to help him in but Shultz walks away. Bigelow seems to be all fired up and the fans start to call Dr. D a chicken. Bill Mercer knows better and warns that Bigleow better be careful. “David Schultz is one tough character and he knows just how to get under someone’s skin.” COMMERCIAL BREAK MATCH: THE GREAT KABUKI & MR. SAITO VS WENDELL COOLEY AND STEVE SIMPSON Bill Mercer reminds us that last week we saw the extremely dangerous Kabuli in a singles match and now he is joined by equally dangerous Mr. Saito. He goes on to say that if these two stay together as a team, the rest of the TNT tag teams better watch themselves. The match is a total squash match as both Kabuki and Saito are double tough. The end comes after a huge thrust kick by Kabuki on Cooley who then followed up with a tag to Saito. Saito finished it off with a Saito Suplex. The victory was not enough as Saito and Kabuki stay on the attack. Saito puts Cooley into the kneeling figure 4 while Kabuki catches Simpson with the Green Mist and then a thrust kick followed up by some nasty martial arts. This attack goes on for a minute or two before the crowd goes wild. Bill Mercer is heard saying, “Here comes the Calvary” as the fans see Bruiser Brody and Stan Hansen hit the ring. Well it was not exactly a rescue. It was a wild brawl. At one point, Bill Mercer was heard saying, “Look Out. Saito’s got a chair and down goes Brody! Nobody was down for long and nobody had control for very long. This was a wild one that only ended when wrestlers and refs poured out from the locker room. COMMERCIAL BREAK NON-TITLE MATCH HOT STUFF EDDIE GILBERT with SHERRI MARTEL VS KERRY VON ERICH Kerry Von Erich enters the ring with “Tom Sawyer” by Rush blaring from the speakers as Bill Mercer hypes it up a lot. Just the opposite happens when “Hot Stuff” by Donna Summers begins to play and Sheri and Gilbert come to the ring. Sheri tries her best to distract Kerry but he will have none of it. Ref Rick Hazzard calls for the bell and it is on. Kerry is just one step ahead of the champ and is in control for most of the opening minutes. Sheri does find a way to impact the match when she trips VonErich when he was whipped into the ropes. Gilbert now plays real dirty for a while but Kerry ducked under the next Irish Whip and caught Gilbert with a flying forearm on the way back. Kerry went wild and caught Gilbert with a huge Tornado Punch. He shows the fans the big right hand symbolizing the Iron Claw is next. Bill Mercer is heard saying, “Oh know, the devil has emerged in the Sportatorium: The Outlaws have hit the ring. It is now Jaggers, Ron Bass and Black Bart going after Kerry. This lasts for less than 10 seconds when the crowd goes absolutely berserk! Bill Mercer screams, “The entire VonErch family is back in Dallas.” It is Kevin and Mike to the rescue and to boot, Curt Hennig and Baby Doll have hit the arena floor. It is now wild pandemonium here. The Outlaws are paired with the VonErichs. Hennig and Gilbert are going at it and the most exciting part is Baby Doll and Sheri are rolling round on the floor. Bill Mercer puts this brawl over in a big way and the show comes to a close with The VonErichs, Curt Hennig and Baby Doll in control of the ring. The crowd loves this and Bill Mercer announces, “for once, the good guys have won. So long from the Sportatorium. The screen fades to black,

    USWA WRESTLING: 5/5/1984: WTBS SHOW AIRED NATIONALLY 6:05-8:05 TAPED IN ATLANTA, GEORGIA The show opens with a VTR from TNT Wrestling in Dallas where Tommy Rich and Dusty Rhodes were defending the World Tag Team Titles against Bruiser Brody and Stan Hansen. Bill Mercer announced that we only have about 1 minute left and after the interference by Rhodes all 4 men were in the ring. Chaos was the only rule being followed now. From out of nowhere, Bruiser Brody nailed Rhodes with a Maniacal Knee Smash and Rhodes fell through the middle ropes. Hansen and Brody now turn to Rich. Hansen scoops up Rich and slams him down with a thunderous Power Bomb. Hansen covers Rich as Mercer predicts new champions but he might have wasted two much time as the credits start to roll. Ref Rick Hazzard counts 1…. Mercer “So long from” Hazzard counts 2… Mercer, “Dallas.” Even though the show ended, the tape continued to roll and the studio audience showed Tommy Rich kick out at 2 ¾. The bell also sounded right away as ref Rick Hazzard declared the match a time limit draw. Hansen and Brody were upset and Rich and Rhodes appeared relieved that they were able to get out of Dallas with their belts. “Hello again everybody. Welcome to USWA Wrestling here on WTBS. I am Gordon Solie and we have a jam packed show tonight. Gordon Solie puts over the match we just saw and announces that Fritz VonErich and TNT Wrestling has been on fire as of late and says that the USWA affiliate promotion will be moving its TV show to the Sunday night time slot. He goes on to announce that Saturday mornings there will be a brand new wrestling show on WTBS. He announces the show as “This Week in Pro Wrestling and that he will be the host. The show will include highlights and interviews from all the USWA shows for the week including shows from TNT Wrestling. He asked the fans to join him Saturday, May 12th at 9:05 for the first show. Solie then gives a rundown of tonight’s show which includes a great main event between the Sawyers and the House of Humperdink. The fans go wild as Tommy Rich and Dusty Rhodes join Solie at the interview desk. Tommy Rich and Dusty Rhodes really put over TNT and announce how they were lucky to get out of Dallas with their belts. Solie moves on to all the trouble coming their way including the arrival of Kevin Sullivan, their upcoming battle with the Sheepherders, their struggles Brody and Hansen and he tells Tommy Rich not to forget about Jerry Lawler. Just as Rhodes and Rich were about to respond. CRACK! Gordon Solie jumps. “Uh, What was that? What it was, was Kendo Nagasaki nailing Rhodes and Rich over and over again with a Kendo Stick. He is using that stick like it was an extension of his arms and is cracking them over and over again. Gordon Solie is again heard, “and it looks like, yes. It is indeed Buzz Sawyer and Brett Sawyer coming to the aid of Rhodes and Rich.” Kendo escapes back to the locker room. The Sawyers help the champs up as they slowly hobble back to Solie holding various body parts. Tommy Rich begins by saying he never thought he would say these words. “Thank you Buzz.” Dusty jumps in right away. “HUMPERDINK! KEEBIN SULLIVAN! I THOUGHT THIS WAY DONE BABY! TWO WEEKS IN A ROW YOU COME AFTER US! KEEBIN HOW ABOUT YOU COME ON OUT HERE BY YOURSELF. WE CAN TAKE CARE OF BUSINESS RIGHT NOW! Gordon Solie asks Rhodes if he is sure Kendo Nagasaki is part of the House of Humperdink. Rhodes responds that Humperdink and Kendo were friends down in Florida and I am sure Humperdink bought himself another hired hand. “Well let me tell you one thing. You got 4 men here who won’t stand for it.” Solie thanks the Sawyers and seems happy that everything is ok as they go to their first break. . ------------------------------------------COMMERCIAL BREAK/PROMOS------------------------------------------ Gordon Solie announces that Eddie Graham has just been handed a video tape by an unidentified delivery man and that it must be aired right away. Solie says he has no idea what is on the tape but here we go. As the tape begins, we see Jerry Lawler “Greeting Rednecks! This is your King in Memphis, Tennessee. I was just wondering how Tommy Rich and Dusty Rhodes enjoyed their Kendo Stick beating. Oh you didn’t think I knew about that. You stupid hicks. I ordered it. That’s right Wildfire. I may be in Memphis but I am the King of all of Wrestling. Whatever I want, whenever I want, I can make it happen. I do not need to rush all the way down to Dirty Atlanta to beat you. I can send anyone I want. You better have eyes in the back of your heads boys as I really enjoyed this first message. Don’t worry Tommy Rich. I will see you in Dothan, Alabama at the end of the month to take my title back to Memphis.” Gordon Solie is surprised as says that it was not Kevin Sullivan after all and Rich and Rhodes better be careful. He goes on to say that Lawler is like the Godfather and it seems like he has put out a hit on Rich and Rhodes. He goes on to announce that tonight is a jammed packed show and they need to get to the ring. MATCH: TONY ATLAS VS MOONDOG CUJO Moondog Cujo comes out in overalls and carrying a dog bone. It looks like he hasn’t shaved or bathed in years and he is a sight to be seen. Atlas comes to the ring giving high fives to all when Cujo attacks him. Big mistake as Atlas is in no mood. Atlas makes quick work of Cujo as the end comes when Atlas forces the Moondog to submit with the Bearhug. Atlas heads over to Gordon Solie and him demands that Eddie Graham come out to the desk. Mr. Graham obliges and Gordon welcomes him to the stand. Atlas goes on to ask how come he is not the USWA National Champion after his match last week with Roddy Piper. He continues to say that the stipulations of the match said that if Piper was disqualified, he would lose the belt. He went on to say that Piper just quit the match and walked away from the ring and was counted out. Graham responds by admitting the actions of Roddy Piper were classless but that he was not disqualified by the referee. He was in fact counted out which is different than a DQ. Atlas doesn’t like this answer and demands another match with Piper. Eddie Graham said that he will have another shot at this title and that it will come at the next Super Card in Dothan, Alabama on May 26th. Graham goes on to say whoever wins the match will be the champion. If Piper is disqualified or counted out, there will be a title change. Atlas seems satisfied with this answer. ------------------------------------------COMMERCIAL BREAK/PROMOS------------------------------------------ MATCH: ERNIE LADD REED VS STEVE TRAVIS The match is all Ernie Ladd. His 6’9, 320 pound frame just crushes Travis. Ladd starts with some huge overhand chops and finishes with a Big Boot. After the ref Scrappy McGowan raises his hand. Ladd pulls a way and raises his own hand in a sign of Black Power. The fans really let him have it as he heads over to the interview desk. Ladd asks what does Solie think of Hacksaw Reed now? Solie begins to speak but Ladd cuts him off. “Let me tell you what I think about Butch Reed. He is a Loser! Did you see me crush him last week in that taped fist match? He is lucky he is still able to eat. Gordon Solie interrupts with “Well I believe he was disqualified for accidentally hitting the ref but he was taking you to the wood shed. Ladd is angry and goes on to explain that every time Reed does something wrong it was an accident but when I do it, it is disgusting behavior. The crowd roars as Reed comes out. Solie begs for everyone to be calm as Ladd says that Reed has no business being out here as it is not his time. Reed tells Ladd that if he is going to spend his time talking about him, then he is coming out to see if Ladd has the cuts to say it to his face. One thing Ladd has is guts and he doesn’t back down. The two go face to face and start to push each other. About a dozen wrestlers and officials come out and try to separate these two. It takes everything this mob has to achieve this goal. As they go to break, Solie says the obvious. “We have not seen the last of the one.” ------------------------------------------COMMERCIAL BREAK/PROMOS------------------------------------------ MATCH: MIKE GRAHAM VS Nightmare #1 Gordon Solie continues to put over Mike Graham and the fans are getting behind him. As for the match it is a back and forth match that has a few momentum changes. Graham takes over and appears on the verge of victory after Graham put the Nightmare in the Figure 4. Before Graham forces his opponent to submit, members of the House of Humperdink hit the ring. It is Hercules Hernandez, The Purple Haze, Abdullah the Butcher and that huge black man with war paint on his face and stomach. The just give Graham a beating from Hell! Humperdink and Sullivan are at the interview desk where Sullivan is just saying over and over again “The SINS OF THE FATHER MUST BE PAID BY THE SON! Finally it is the Sawyers, Dusty Rhodes, Crusher Ottman and Tommy Rich who hit the scene as Solie announces, “Here comes the Calvary.” Sullivan yells at his minions to disperse and the all head to the locker room. ------------------------------------------COMMERCIAL BREAK/PROMOS------------------------------------------ Piper’s Pit with Special Guests: Kevin Sullivan Roddy Piper makes his way out to the set and sits in one of the two chairs that are there. The Sheepherders follow Piper out and are standing behind him with their arms folded. Piper has his USWA NATIONAL TITLE around and he is as cocky as ever. Piper then goes on to say that this next guest is causing havoc in the USWA and seems to answer to a “different” calling. He then introduces Kevin Sullivan who comes to the set with Humperdink and the Minions as he will call them, Even Piper seems a bit on edge. Sullivan thanks Piper for the time but then takes over the interview like no one has ever done to Piper. Piper is there but only as a microphone holder. Sullivan begins to explain that when Sir Oliver Humperdink contacted him to come and lead “The House” that he asked Humperdink to give him some for time. He goes on to explain that it takes time to travel the world to find the correct Minions who will listen without reservation. He goes on to say that he has traveled to the far reaches of the World from Calcutta to the Gold Coast of Africa where cannibalism still thrives. He mentions trips to Singapore and to the 7th Step of the 5th level of Dante’s Inferno. He now has the proper “Army” to take out Eddie Graham and any of his puppets. He goes on to mention how Graham tried to take away his right to earn a living in Florida by fining him and by suspending him. He now has come to USWA Wrestling with a rock solid contract that he signed with Graham’s predecessor, Jerry Jarrett was here and there is nothing Graham can do about it. Sullivan says he will get revenge on Graham by hurting his son and anyone else that gets in his way including that fat slob Dusty Rhodes. He pauses then includes Buzz Sawyer and his brother. He seems upset as he said he had high hopes for Buzz Sawyer but sometimes people make a wrong turn. He ends by saying that he is the Task Master and the foundation of the House of Humperdink. He admits that his Minions are only the Walls and that sometimes people change the color or tear them down. He explains that this means that as long as Humperdink and Sullivan are on the same page, the rest of the Army can come and go but the destruction will be the same. While all this was going on Abdullah was slapping himself in the head. The Purple Haze had his eyes rolling inside of his head and the 400 pound beast was patting his belly. Sullivan gathers his Army and together they begin to chant. Piper seems to be grateful that they are leaving and he just looks at the Sheepherders as if to say WHAT WAS THAT? ------------------------------------------COMMERCIAL BREAK/PROMOS------------------------------------------ MATCH: The Sheepherders vs Wendell Cooley and Steve Simpson The Sheepherders continue their recent dominance here in the USWA with a brutal win over Cooley and Simpson. The Sheepherders go over to the interview desk where they are as crazy as ever and the basically tell Rhodes and Wildfire to hand over the tag belts now. Gordon Solie agrees with them that they are on a roll and he hypes their match this week against the champs and reminds all the fans in the Bayfront Center in Saint Petersburgh, Florida of the upcoming card. ------------------------------------------COMMERCIAL BREAK/PROMOS------------------------------------------ Match: Pvt. Don Kernodle vs Killer Khan These two are no strangers to each other and the battle is long and drawn out. Kernodle tries everything he can to take the monster off his feet and in the end Kernodle uses the Reverse Neckbreaker to gain the victory. ------------------------------------------COMMERCIAL BREAK/PROMOS------------------------------------------ MAIN EVENT MATCH Buzz Sawyer & Brett Sawyer vs Abdullah the Butcher and The Botswana Man Eater with SOH Talk about brutality. The newest members of the House of Humperdink are wild and unpredictable. The match has no rules and the ref has no control. After about 5 minutes, ref Mario Crumley calls for the bell and disqualifies both teams. This is only the beginning as the rest of the House of Humperdink hit the ring just about the same time as Tommy Rich, Dusty Rhodes, Mike Graham and Crusher Ottman. For the first time in weeks, the good guys out number Sullivan as his Army. It is still a wild pier 6 brawl but as the show ends, the favorites can control. The crowd loves Dusty getting the better of Sullivan as the Army hightails it back to the locker room with the fan favorites in hot pursuit. The fans are cheering wildly as Gordon Solie says, “So long from Atlanta.”

    OH I LOVE IT. I said in a post awhile ago that I thought I had this one figured out and if I was right, you were brilliant. I thought when you said Dibiase could be the only one to bring JYD that you were going to do this. I truly love it! This show was great. It was fun to watch the demise of Tully and Gino over the past few weeks losing all their belts and now we have the feud to end all feuds coming. Watts vs The Russians is classic! Keep sending us these great cards!

    UNITED STATES WRESTLING ASSOCIATION

    5/1/1984: WTBS SHOW AIRED NATIONALLY 11:05-12:05 TAPED IN DALLAS, TEXAS BILL MERCER welcomes all the fans to TNT Wrestling from the World’s most Famous Wrestling Arena, the Sportatorium in downtown Dallas. He goes on to say how wonderful it is to be back announcing the great sport of wrestling here in the greatest state in all the land, Texas. He then introduces his co-commentator and President of TNT Wrestling, Fritz VonErich. Fritz quickly welcomes Mercer back and then goes into how tonight will be the greatest night in TNT history. He announces that there will be a USWA World Tag Team Title Match, an interview with the New TNT Heavyweight Champion and few huge surprises. Fritz then informs the audience that after the first match, he will be turning the show completely over to Bill Mercer and he ensures us that we are in good hands. Bill Mercer says that they need to get right to the ring for tonight’s first match and a huge grin comes across the face of Fritz. All of a sudden “Tom Sawyer” by Rush blares from the speakers and for a second, the fans think, “Could it be.” When Kerry VonErich walks out the Sportatorium explodes! MATCH KERRY VON ERICH VS WENDELL COOLEY In a quick squash match, VonErich completely reeves up the fans. They love every moment of it and go wild when his lifts up the right hand to signify the Iron Claw is coming. Cooley quickly submits as VonErich plays to the crowd. Kerry quickly goes over to Bill Mercer and his father. Bill Mercer welcomes Kerry back to Texas and asks how he is doing. Kerry says it’s been a tough few months with David passing away and all but he is feeling much better now that he is back in Texas. CRACK! A bull rope snaps on the floor as Ron Bass, Black Bart ad Bobby Jaggers come out to the interview. They are all dressed in black cowboy attire and are drooling tobacco out of their mouths. Bass seems to be the mouth piece for these Outlaws and he begins by saying, “Well, Well, Well. If it is not the prodigal son returning to save his Father! Well you are not the only one to return to the Lone Star State tonight. Black Bart, Bobby Jagger and I are here to stay. We are here to make a name for ourselves and the best way to that is to beat us some Von Erich butt! The wrestlers all heard the rumors that you were coming back to work for Daddy’s new company. Ox Baker heard it. The Bruise Brothers heard it. That nut Bugsy McGraw heard it. Even that midget, Bill Dundee heard it. Guess what. They all left the company. They knew that there was no more equal treatment around here. It would be Kerry getting the main events, the title shots and the special treatment from the refs. Well let me tell you two something Kerry and Fritz VonErich. It doesn’t matter how much help you get. You can’t stop us from taking over TNT. All 3 spit a wad of tobacco on the shoes of Fritz as they walk off. Bill Mercer shakes his head as he takes us to the first break. COMMERCIAL BREAK When they come out of break, it is the New TNT Heavyweight Champion and Sherri Martel at the desk. Mercer congratulations them on their victory over Bill Dundee at Memphis Roundhouse Revival and on becoming the first champion in TNT history. Sherri takes control saying that there was nothing Dundee could have done about it. He knew that he couldn’t beat Hot Stuff Eddie Gilbert and now he has run for the hills. She continues on about how Baby Doll is lucky not to be in TNT anymore or she would have gotten the same beating her “little” man got. The crowd begins to roar as Baby Doll walks out. She goes right face to face with Martel and says she isn’t going anywhere. Texas is her home and she is her to stay. She goes on to say Eddie Gilbert better not get to use to having that title because her man is the Perfect Wrestler. Gilbert laughs and says that Dundee is everything but perfect and he isn’t even in TNT anymore. Baby Doll says it is true Dundee decided to stay in Memphis but when you are the Perfect 10, it doesn’t take long to find a new man and let me interest you to him. The crowd roars as none other than Curt Hennig joins her. He gets right in the face of Gilbert and Baby Doll gets right in the face of Sherri. On the count of three, Hennig and Baby Doll smack them in the face and the brawl is on. It takes a bunch of wrestlers and officials to break this one. COMMERCIAL BREAK MATCH: Dr. D DAVID SCHULTZ VS RICKY GIBSON Poor Ricky Gibson is all Bill Mercer can say. Dr. D makes an example out of him and beats him from pillar to post. The match comes to a merciful end after Schultz followed up a running bulldog with a piledriver as ref Bronco Lubich made the 3 count. Schultz heads over to Bill Mercer and starts yelling and screaming that Fritz better be thinking real hard about giving him a title shot. He goes on to say that no one here in TNT has the guts to stand up to him. Mercer is honest and says that after that last match I am sure Fritz is thinking about a title shot down the road. The 6’6 270 pound monster is real intimidating and Mercer warns the rest of TNT that he is double tough. All of a sudden Schultz doesn’t look quite as big as the flamed tattooed head of Bam Bam Bigelow appears. He starts yelling that he is the Beast from the East and that he may be young and he may be dumb but he is ready to stand up to Schultz. He goes on to say that he respects Schultz but that he is ready to play with the big boys. Schultz grins and pokes Bigelow in the chest and says “Boy, you are not worth my time.” Bigelow responds. “I am going to tell you two things. First don’t ever touch me again and second don’t ever call me boy. Schultz actually takes his finger off of Bigelow and the two glare at each other. Cooler heads do prevail and Mercer calls for peace. COMMERCIAL BREAK MATCH: THE GREAT KABUKI VS RICK McGRAW The fans are expecting a lot from Rick McGraw as he has wrestled well in recent weeks but from the get go it is all Kabuki. He is one dangerous dude and his martial arts almost take of McGraw’s head on numerous occasions. The end comes after a perfectly timed thrust kick to the temple. Bill Mercer really puts over Kabuki and how dangerous he is and that TNT better tread lightly. Mercer then gets right into talking about tonight’s main event. The USWA World Tag Team Title Match between the New Champions, Dusty Rhodes and Tommy Rich against the number one contenders, Bruiser Brody and Stan Hansen. COMMERCIAL BREAK USWA WORLD TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH TOMMY RICH & DUSTY RHODES VS BRUISER BRODY AND STAN HANSEN (TV TIME REMAIING) All four men enter the ring to the loud ovations but is Hansen and Brody who seem to have a majority of the fans on their side and even though these two teams respect each other, it is a brawl from beginning to end. Brody doesn’t know any other way and the other three kind of enjoy it. All 4 men had their moments but it was Hansen who took control late by connecting with a huge lariat on Rich. It was only due to Rhodes making the save that we did not have new champions. Bill Mercer announced that we only have about 1 minute left and after the interference by Rhodes all 4 men were in the ring. Chaos was the only rule being followed now. From out of nowhere, Bruiser Brody nailed Rhodes with a Maniacal Knee Smash and Rhodes fell through the middle ropes. Hansen and Brody now turn to Rich. Hansen scoops up Rich and slams him down with a thunderous Power Bomb. Hansen covers Rich as Mercer predicts new champions but he might have wasted two much time as the credits start to roll. Ref Rick Hazzard counts 1…. Mercer “So long from” Hazzard counts 2… Mercer, “Dallas.” The screen fades to black,

    USWA WRESTLING: 4/29/1984: WTBS SHOW AIRED NATIONALLY 5:05-6:05 ATLANTA, GEORGIA The show opens with a VTR of last night’s Main Event that shows Dusty Rhodes and Tommy Rich winning the USWA World Tag Team Titles. “Hello again everybody. Welcome to USWA Wrestling here on WTBS. I am Gordon Solie and we have a jammed packed hour so let’s get right to it. Solie goes on to explain that on last night’s show, Lawler sucker punched Tommy Rich and stormed off. Solie continues to say that Lawler has returned to Memphis and will once again be working for Jerry Jarrett but that he also has unfinished business here. Solie explains that he is about to show a videotaped message sent by Lawler to USWA wrestling from his home in Memphis, Tennessee. Lawler goes on to say that how wonderful it is to be back to the real home of Professional Wrestling. Memphis, Tennessee! He goes on to say that he doesn’t wish to return to any of those hick towns that Eddie Graham has planned for USWA Wrestling. He goes on to make jokes about Lakeland, Florida, Marietta, Georgia and Dothan, Alabama. He really gets going on Dothan and the Arena there, The Farm Center! The Farm Center were men are men and the farm animals are afraid! He then turns his attention to that insecure coward, Tommy Rich! What a baby. What a quitter. Lawler goes on to call Rich every name in the book. He ends by announcing that he has no real interest to return to USWA but of course he is the King of Wrestling and oh by the way, he is still the #1 contender for the World Championship so he will be back to claim what is rightfully his. Solie announces that he will be joined by the American Dream Dusty Rhodes and Tommy Wildfire Rich right after this break. ----------------------------------------------------COMMERCIAL BREAK --------------------------------------- Rhodes and Rich walk out to huge applause. Rhodes has the Tag Belt around his waist while Rich has both the Tag Title and World Title over his shoulders. Gordon begins by first welcoming The American Dream back to Atlanta and to USWA Wrestling and then he congratulated them both on their victory over Saito and Khan. Rhodes thanks Gordon and says how wonderful it is to back in HOTLANTA BABY! He goes on to thank Eddie Graham for bringing him in and talks about how excited he is to be teaming up with Wildfire! Gordon smiles at Dusty’s excitement and turns the attention to Rich and asks him what he thinks about the message they just saw from Jerry Lawler. Rich says that it is unfortunate but it is Lawler’s decision to run away. It is Lawler’s fault for being jealous and Rich explains that Dusty has brought new life into him and he is so excited to be teaming with The AMERICAN DREAM and that he will deal with Lawler later. Rich is now firrrreeed UP! He says Lawler is the baby and a coward. He is the one who has run away. King? Seems more like a big Queen to me and he can’t wait to meet Lawler in the ring. Rhodes finishes by telling Rich that “I got your back and that I have dealt with Lawler for a long time baby! When Lawler is the champ, everything is good. When anyone else is the champ, he can’t handle that. It’s the Silver Spoon Syndrome Baby! Never had to work a day in his spoiled life. If Memphis wants him, they can keep him.” Solie goes on to say that Memphis is not keeping him. He is the #1 contender and Eddie Graham has already signed a World Title Match between Lawler and Rich for May 27th at a card being billed as Don’t Tread On Me and will be a salute to our troops. Gordon goes on to say this event will be held in the Houston County Farm Center in Dothan Alabama. Solie finished by saying Lawler is going to love that. Ha! Solie announces that it is time to get to the ring for a tag match which is of great interest to Tommy Rich and Dusty Rhodes. The winner will become the New #1 Contenders for the USWA World Tag Team Title. #1 CONTENDER’S MATCH The Sheepherders vs The Fort Bragg Brotherhood The match begins before the bell sounds as the Sheepherders attack Pvt. Kernodle and Cpl. Kirchner. It is a brutal match that is back and forth but in the end The Sheepherders are put over The Brotherhood as the end comes from a Battering Ram for a clean victory. Gordon Solie wonders if Tommy Rich knows what he is in store for. He has The Sheepherders breathing down his throat as well as Jerry the King Lawler. Solie says he better have eyes in the back of his head. ----------------------------------------------------COMMERCIAL BREAK --------------------------------------- Gordon Solie is joined at the interview desk by Sir Oliver Humperdink who says that Buzz Sawyer and his brother Brett have no idea what they have started last night when they betrayed the House of Humperdink. Humperdink challenges Sawyer and his brother to a match right now against the House of Humperdink. Solie goes on to ask Humperdink who is his “House” now that Sawyer and Crusher Ottman have left. Humperdink tells Solie to shut up and that is House has ever reaching connections and if Sawyer and Brett Wayne dare to enter the ring, they will find that out. The Sawyers rush out and quickly accept the challenge and are they are really amped up! TAG TEAM MATCH: THE SAWYERS VS THE HOUSE OF HUMPERDINK The Sawyers are already in the ring as Humperdink announces his new and improved House of Humperdink. Hercules Hernandez comes out first as was expected. He is bouncing around the ring and flexing his muscles. All of a sudden The Wild Man from the Sudan hits the ring. Abdullah and Hernandez attack the Sawyer and the beating is on. The bell never sounded so this is not an official match but that makes no difference to Humperdink’s stable. Somehow the Sawyers regroup and take back the momentum. Humperdink grabs the microphone from Solie and yells one word, “NOW” Gordon Solie is heard saying, “No, Oh No, I can’t be. Oh My God it is. It’s Kevin Sullivan, the Purple Haze and a huge black man with African war paint on his stomach on face. . It is now 5-2 and the Sawyers are being brutally attacked. Never have these fans seen the brutality of Sullivan and his army. Throw in Humperdink and Hercules Hernandez and this is really ugly. The fans roar as Solie announces the cavalry that is coming to the rescue. It is Crusher Ottman, Dusty Rhodes, Tommy Rich and Eddie Graham’s son, Mike Graham. Solie announces that “A Pier 6 Brawl has broken out.” After about 3 wild minutes, the favorites are spread out all over the arena floor and have been beaten to a pulp. Humperdink calls off his “House” and they return to the locker room. The fan favorites slowly make their way to their feet. It is a rather strange moment when Tommy Rich and Buzz Sawyer look at each other and realize they are on the same side. Rich slowly extends his hand and Sawyer hesitates but then shook it. Solie is in shock at this new alliance and says “who would have ever thought this would be possible just a short time ago. Wildfire and The Mad Dog on the same side. Bro-ther!” --------------------------------------COMMERCIAL BREAK--------------------------------------- Gordon Solie takes a moment to put over our next match which is A Tapped Fist Match between Hacksaw Reed and Ernie Ladd MATCH: A TAPED FIST MATCH HACKSAW REED VS ERNIE LADD The crowd explodes when Reed hits the ring but those cheers quickly change to boos as Ladd makes his way to the ring. Ladd gives it right back to them as Solie says this is the hottest feud in the history of the USWA. As for the match it is a brawl from beginning to end. Ladd use his 6’9 frame and reach advantage to hit Reed over and over again with his huge taped right hands but Reed never backs down and returns each and every blow with one of his own. These two go toe to toe as the ref tries to separate them but they will have none of it. The two just keep punching and punching each other until Reed accidently punches ref Paul Morton who goes down like a ton of bricks. When he finally comes to, Morton calls for the bell and disqualifies Reed. The fans are furious but the fight continues until wrestlers pour out from the back to separate these two. Gordon Solie wonders if it is safe to keep these two in the same company and says that something has got to give. After order is restored, Solie takes us right back to the ring for tonight’s Main Event USWA NATIONAL TITLE MATCH RODDY PIPER VS TONY ATLAS Last night, Eddie Graham demanded this match take place and if Piper is disqualified Atlas wins the match. From the get go, it is obvious that Piper wants no part of Atlas. When they finally do tie up, Piper goes right for the eyes. This gives him the advantage for a few minutes but then Atlas goes wild. After a huge bodyslam, Piper scurries out of the ring. Ref Jerry Calhoun starts his count and Piper looks like his back is hurt. As Calhoun gets to 6 Piper gets up on the apron. On the count of 7, Piper jumps down. On the count of 9, Piper waves his arms at Atlas as he grabs his belt and walks away. The ref raises the hand of Tony Atlas as the fans go wild. Gordon Solie announces that your winner by count-out is Mr. USA Tony Atlas but then he goes on to say that according to the ref, Roddy Piper is still your USWA National Champion. The fans are outraged and even Atlas seems surprised. Atlas goes to Solie and says that the stipulations of the match said if Piper got disqualified he would lose the belt. Gordon Solie says that they will all have to wait until next week to get an answer to this situation as they are out of time. “So long from Atlanta.”

    When a card has names like Funk, Race, Larry Z, Bockwinkle, Snuka, Flair, Adams and the Guerreros, it can't help but be great! You have a Hall of Fame roster and they are all doing great work. Welcome back form sabbatical and look forward to more great shows. Loved the ending to the Snuka/Flair match as well as the Adams/Bockwinkle match. Good job by the Bruiser getting that TV Tourny going right away.

    UNITED STATES WRESTLING ASSOCIATION

    USWA WRESTLING: 4/28/1984: WTBS SHOW AIRED NATIONALLY 6:05-8:05 TAPED IN ATLANTA, GEORGIA The show opens with a VTR Tommy Rich winning the World Title over Austin Idol and then a second tape of Rich and Lawler losing the World Titles to the Shogunate. “Hello again everybody. Welcome to USWA Wrestling here on WTBS. I am Gordon Solie and we have a jam packed show tonight. Gordon Solie welcome Wildfire Rich to the set and as Tommy comes to the set, it is obvious that he has something on his mind. Gordon congratulations him on winning the World Title but he goes on and also reminds the fans that just after that victory, Tommy and Jerry the King Lawler lost the World Tag Titles to Mr. Saito and Killer Khan. Tommy shakes his head and is obviously upset. He is talking low and dejectedly. He goes on to say he would just like to say he is sorry to the fans of Memphis and to his great buddy Jerry Lawler. He takes full blame for losing the Tag titles and says he hopes Jerry Lawler can forgive him. Gordon Solie makes the fans day when he says “tonight our Main Event will be the rematch for the USWA World Tag Team Titles. It will be Jerry Lawler and Wildfire Rich vs Mr. Saito and Killer Khan. Tommy Rich is still just shaking his head and says he doesn’t think Lawler is even going to show up tonight. The fans in Atlanta notice that Lawler is now coming to the set and they erupt because they know that there main event will now take place. Lawler begins by saying “How big it is of you to take responsibility for the tag lose.” Wildfire again says he is sorry and he will do everything in his power to regain those tag titles. Lawler just shakes his head. “You dumb hick! Can’t you tell sarcasm when you hear it. What you did last Monday night was the most selfish act I have ever seen. I will NEVER be your partner again. Last week I was upset that you were named the #1 contender to the World Title because I knew you were going to beat Idol and then it would bother me when I took the title from you because we were friends. Now it is going to my pleasure taking that belt from a punk like you. Wildfire now begins to fight back as Solie tries to keep order. Rich continues about how he made a mistake but if you can’t get over one mistake then you’re not half the man I thought you were. He continues by saying that you might be the King of Memphis but here in Atlanta GA, I am the King and if you think I am just going to bow down and kiss your stinking feet, you got another thing coming. Lawler responds, “There is just one more thing.” WHAM! Lawler sucker punches Rich and walks off set. Rich looks dejectedly at the ground. As they head to break, it is Gordon Solie who wonders if Lawler and Rich can get back on the same page for tonight’s main event. ------------------------------------------COMMERCIAL BREAK/PROMOS------------------------------------------ Gordon Solie gives a rundown of tonight’s show and gives a quick review on the wrestling spectacular that took place in Memphis on April 23rd before welcoming in the Sir Oliver Humperdink and his “House.” Solie notices that Humperdink is joined by Buzz Sawyer and Hercules Hernandez but not Crusher Ottman who was beaten last Monday by Bam Bam Bigelow. Solie mentions this to Humperdink who goes on the tell Solie “How smart you must be to state the obvious.” He goes on to say that he is done with the fat tube of garbage Ottman. How can he allow some worthless piece of garbage that can’t even beat Bigelow in his stable. He continues on by saying that he is in search of new stable members and has a mega deal in the works. He tells Solie to watch the destruction that is about to take place in the ring. MATCH: Hercules Hernandez with Sir Oliver Humperdink vs Brett Wayne This is a total squash match where Hercules just throws Wayne from pillar to post. The end comes after Wayne frantically submits after being tortured in the Backbreaker Rack. The ref continues to call for the bell but Hernandez refuses to release the hold. It goes on and on until finally the ref reverses his decision and declares Wayne the winner. This means little to Hernandez and Humperdink. Humperdink is heard screaming “break him in half.” Buzz Sawyer hits the ring and the fans think that Wayne is in for more torture but Mad Dog goes completely berserk on Hernandez. Crusher Ottman hits the scene and does the same to Humperdink. The beatings go on for quite some time until Hernandez and Humperdink escape to the locker room. Sawyer helps Wayne to his feet and gives him an embrace. The crowd is confused. Ottman puts his hand out to Sawyer who looks at it for a minute before shaking it. The three then head to the interview desk. Sawyer grabs the mic and just begins screaming, “I told you. I told you. Anybody else! Anybody else.” Solie asks Sawyer to explain. Sawyer goes on to say that family is family and he told Humperdink not to do what he just did. Solie again seems confused and asks for more information. Buzz goes on to say that this is his younger brother and that Humperdink was told to go easy on him. Solie and the fans are in shock and they feel sorry for Sawyer and his brother. Ottman goes on to say that if the Sawyers will allow it, he would like to help them rid wrestling of Humperdink. They all shake hands as the Atlanta fans can’t believe that Sawyer is on their side now. WOW! What will the champ think about this one? ------------------------------------------COMMERCIAL BREAK/PROMOS------------------------------------------ As we come out of break, we again see Tommy Rich at the interview desk. Tommy informs us that we he went back to the locker room to again try and patch things up with Lawler but Lawler had already left the building. All of a sudden, Eddie Graham walks on to the set. Gordon Solie welcomes Graham to the USWA. These two have a great working relationship due to Solie’s time in Championship Wrestling from Florida. Eddie thanks Gordon and says he has two huge announcements. First, he tells everyone that Jerry Jarrett and the USWA have parted ways. He then goes on to announce that he will be the new temporary President of the USWA and that he is so excited to be a part of the newest and brightest wrestling organization around. Gordon Solie seems surprised but is excited. He then asks if that is why he is solo tonight and that Lance Russell is not here. Graham informs him that there will be a lot of changes here in the USWA. Those changes will include roster changes, personal changes and venue changes. He tells the fans throughout Florida, Alabama and Georgia to get ready for the best wrestling show in the business. He says the USWA has nothing but respect for Mr. Jerry Jarrett and they wish him well and hope that they can continue together in some form of a working relationship. Graham goes on and talks about the second big announcement. He says he heard that Jerry Lawler has left the studio and that Tommy Rich should not be punished for Lawler’s actions and neither should the fans in studio or at home be punished. He says there will be a WORLD TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH RIGHT HERE TONIGHT! Rich asks Graham who his partner will be and Graham goes over to Wildfire and whispers into his ear and a smile from ear to ear comes across Rich’s face. The fans are all a buzz and these announcements and wonder who Tommy will be partner with tonight. ------------------------------------------COMMERCIAL BREAK/PROMOS------------------------------------------ MATCH: MIKE GRAHAM VS TED ALLEN Gordon Solie is excited and puts over newcomer Mike Graham in a big way and says he knows Mike well from his days announcing in Florida and tells the fans they are in for a treat. As for the match it is pretty long and drawn out with a lot of technical moves. After a while, Ted Allen tired of this style and tried surprising Mike with an uppercut in the corner. Graham ducked under this and then decided what was good for the goose was good for the gander and went wild on Allen. The end comes when Graham put Allen into the Figure 4 and forced the submission. Graham went over to Solie and said how wonderful it was to be here in the USWA. ------------------------------------------COMMERCIAL BREAK/PROMOS------------------------------------------ Piper’s Pit with Special Guests: Eddie Graham Roddy Piper makes his way out to the set and sits in one of the two chairs that are there. The Sheepherders follow Piper out and are standing behind him with their arms folded. Piper has his USWA NATIONAL TITLE around his waist as a VTR begins to play. It is of Piper winning the belt last week over Tony Atlas but it is a doctored tape and only shows the legal things Piper did and the ref making the 3 count. It leaves out him using the ether soaked towel to knock out Atlas. Piper then goes on to say that this next guest was not scheduled but has demanded that he come on to Piper’s Pit tonight. Piper continues by saying once you win the title everyone wants to come up to you and shake your hand. Eddie Graham comes out and Piper is being phony to his new boss right away. Graham tells Piper to pipe down and this will be quick. First of all, Eddie says that he disagrees with the tactics Piper is using and he better change his ways. Graham also demands that Piper wrestle Tony Atlas right here on WTBS tomorrow night and if Piper is disqualified for any reason, he will lose the belt. Graham than proceeds to walk of set and Piper is furious and is muttering to himself. It is the first time Piper has been at a loss for words and is duped on his own Piper’s Pit. ------------------------------------------COMMERCIAL BREAK/PROMOS------------------------------------------ MATCH: Hacksaw Butch Reed s Wendell Cooley While the fans are really behind Reed, by the end of this one the crowd almost felt sorry for the rookie Wendell Cooley. Reed hit him with ever major move you could think of before ending it was a Gorilla Press Slam. The match took less than 3 minutes but it must have felt like an eternity to Cooley. Reed makes his way to Solie and he is in a foul mood. He is yelling about how he is sick and tired of Ernie Ladd and anyone stupid enough to follow him. He demands a match against Ladd right here tomorrow night with Ladd. All of a sudden Ron Fuller appears and agrees with Reed and tells him that he will sanction any type of match for tonight and asks Reed what he wants. Reed thinks a minute before shooting out…. Taped Fist Match! The crowd begins to stir as Ernie Ladd comes to the set. “So punk, you want a taped fist match! You got it you big dumb muscled bound nothing. I am 6’9 and I will pound you into the ground. The two get into each other’s faces but cooler heads prevail. ------------------------------------------COMMERCIAL BREAK/PROMOS------------------------------------------ Match: The Sheepherders vs Ricky Gibson and Rick McGraw The Sheepherders, fresh off of losing the National Tag Titles, really put it on Gibson and McGraw. The match is brutal from beginning to end and the fans are amazed that the Fabulous Ones beat them. After the match, the Sheepherders head to the interview desk where they are pacing and screaming about how the Fabulous Ones cheated and they don’t know who they messed with. Solie takes a risk here and asks the Sheepherders if they have ever broken the rules. Both Williams and Miller threaten Solie and really let him have it verbally. ------------------------------------------COMMERCIAL BREAK/PROMOS------------------------------------------ MAIN EVENT MATCH USWA WORLD TAG TEAM TITLE Mr. Saito & Killer Khan vs Tommy Wildfire Rich & A Mystery Partner The champs are first to enter the ring and they are very confident and let the fans have it on the way to the ring. The fans seem really excited for this one and give it right back to them. Wildfire comes to the ring next and he is alone. The Shogunate begin to close in before the bell but all of a sudden there is a ROAR form the crowd. Gordon Solie is hear saying, And it looks like… yes…. It is indeed… “THE AMERICAN DREAM DUSTY” RHODES! The Shogunate quickly back pedal to the corner and are in complete shock! The bell sounds and it is Wildfire and Saito who are the legal men as Dusty stomps on the apron to get the crowd going even more. It was this energy that carried Rich and Dusty to have most of the momentum in the early part of the match. This momentum changed as Saito was able to catch Dusty off guard with a huge chop to the forehead. It was now the villains turn to take control. They used some nasty double team moves to put Dusty in a bad way. Khan tagged in Saito and Saito grabbed Dusty by the arms. Khan spins around and goes to spray The Asian Green Mist into the eyes of Dusty but he ducks under and Khan actually sprays Saito. Dusty turns and nails Saito with a Bionic Elbow which had Saito stumbling. Dusty leans out and tags in Rich who hits the ropes and nails Saito with a Lou Thesz Press and goes for the cover. As the ref begins the count Khan rushes over. WHAM…… Dusty hits Khan with another Bionic Elbow as the ref counts 3! Solie really puts a lot of energy into this one. “AND WE HAVE NEW WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS. WHAT A NIGHT. EDDIE GRAHAM HAS THIS ALL MOVING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. SEE YOU ALL TOMORROW NIGHT RIGHT HERE ON WTBS!

    Dirt Sheets

    There has been another meeting of the minds in USWA and it appears that Ted Turner and Jerry Jarrett are at such odds that Jarrett may return to Memphis. Turner admits that he does not know enough of the wrestling business and continues to meet with Bill Watts and Eddie Graham in search of a new USWA President in case Jarrett does bolt. The most interesting name to come out of the USWA rumor mill today was Ron Fuller. Fuller and Turner recently split over the idea that Turner wanted growth and a focus on Georgia while Fuller beliefs in a smaller homegrown roster with a focus on Alabama and the panhandle of Florida. In the two months since Fuller left the USWA he has built a great roster and promotion in Alabama but has recently lost his television contract. The reason for no TV is the rapid growth of USWA on TBS. If the two could agree on a few things, they may be able to reunite. Turner would have to accept Fuller's love of Alabama and Fuller would have to be able to accept the idea of a superstar stacked roster that appeals to all viewers. Again, we will have to wait and see. Will the president of the USWA be Jerry Jarrett, Eddie Graham, Ron Fuller or Bill Watts?

    Great shows. Loved the Billy Jack/Adrian Street match. Street dodging the cow bell and winning on a roll up was fun. Jimmy Garvin winning a Abttle Royal against those monsters was cool. I really wish WWF would have called you long time ago. The way you use Hogan is priceless. It s the same match they used but your results vary perfectly. He wins. He loses. It just makes it so much fun. I am not a Hogan fan but when I read your matches I find myself very interested because I don;t know the results like I did in real life. Keep up the great work!

    The news and rumors are coming fast and furious for the USWA and it is hard to tell which is which. Financially, the recent mega-show in the Mid-South Coliseum was a huge success and its TV ratings were through the roof but not everyone in the organizations seems thrilled. In fact, Jerry Jarrett went nuts and was furious at Tommy Rich for not being in shape enough to compete in the two matches that he had. Jarrett had no problem allowing the World Title to go to Rich but then when he just quit in the tag team title match and threw in the towel, Jarrett couldn't believe it. People who were around him said that he could not believe Rich allowed The King to lose his title in Memphis and that Rich deserved to be beaten by the wild mob that almost rushed the ring. Jarrett and Turner were already having problems. Turner thinks that Jarrett is a one town hick who can only survive in Memphis while Jarrett believes Turner to be too egotistical and has no clue on how to run a wrestling business. Turner seems in hurry to control all of the wrestling in the Deep South and believes that Jarrett can be replaced. It is rumored that he has already spoken with Eddie Graham, Ron Fuller and Bill Watts who have a lot of connections in this industry. Turner loves the attention TNT Wrestling is getting and believes growth for the USWA on the success of Fritz. He is trying everything in his power to help expand the roster of TNT and bring back some hometown stars to the program. We will just have to wait to see what shakes out for the USWA!
