    UNITED STATES WRESTLING ASSOCIATION NEWS -Ted Turner and Jerry Jarrett are all about expansion but they feel it would be in the best interest to the organization that if they were able to acquire other promotions who are already established and allow them to be member organizations to the USWA. It has been said that Jarrett has offered them opportunities to even control the World Champions for periods of time but so far he has received little interest. Jarrett is also thinking of vacated some of the Championship Belts in the USWA and giving complete control of them to any new promotions willing to join the USWA. -While the ratings for the Saturday and Sunday shows are on the rise, many of the wrestlers have complained that they are not having their talents showcased enough. Ted Turner and Jerry Jarrett have told each any everyone that they must earn TV time. They have decided to increase the number of house shows per month by adding a second show to the schedule on many nights. These extra house shows will give people like Bugsy McGraw and Brett Wayne a chance to win over the fans and then maybe get a shot at TBS. -The board of directors believes that the Russian angle will work no matter the Russian. They know they have like a D level Russian in Korstia Korchenko and are looking to improve this part of the roster but they do not wish to abandon the idea. They know full well that the Hatred of Russian Wrestlers means dollar signs for them. -Talks with Fritz VonErich continue but it seems like he wants to Dallas to be on equal ground with Memphis and Atlanta. Other than Dallas, Fritz has little to offer as currently there is no WCCW and his sons are in Florida. We will just have to see if the VonErich name is enough to entice Turner and Jarrett. -All eyes are the First Battle of Atlanta on March 12. This is the first major show for USWA and a lot is riding on this. Since it is also being televised on national TV, their is concern for the attendance. It is rumored that Turner will give free tickets to any child with an "A"on a test who is accompanied by a paying adult. His theory is that a packed Omni looks good on TV and the more people equals the more energy. -There has also been the rumor that Turner is down on Plowboy Frazier and his cousins. Turner is unsure if this Hillbilly routine will be successful in some of the larger cities he wants to bring USWA to. He knows how great they are in the country side of Dixie but he would be happier adding to the Russian Mob or Ladd's Army.

    USWA WRESTLING: 3/6/1984: WTBS SHOW AIRED NATIONALLY 5:05-6:05 TAPPED IN MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE “Yello again everybody. Welcome to USWA Wrestling here on WTBS. I am Lance Russell along with Gordon Solie. We have a jam packed show tonight so let’s get right to our first match.” Match: Korstia Korchenko vs Private Kernodle Korchenko comes to the ring hearing a chorus of boos and he is also all alone. It is just one day since he lost his first match in the USWA as a member of the House of Humperdink. After his defeat to Jimmy Valiant, Humperdink turned on him and attacked him with Buzz Sawyer and Hercules Hernandez. Korchenko comes to the ring carrying the Russian flag and asks for the fans to stand will he sings the Russian National Anthem. The fans now boo even louder as he begins the song. Half way through, the fans erupt as Pvt. Kernodle heads to the ring carrying the United States flag. As for the match, Korchenko is doing much better tonight. Maybe it was jet lag that made him look so bad last night. This match is back and forth for about 5 minutes with both men turning it into a brawl. All of sudden, Gordon Solie announces the approach of Buzz Sawyer and Hercules Hernandez. They hit the ring and continue last night’s beating of Korchenko. This is one of the few times that the House of Humperdink hears the cheers for them. Ref Paul Morton quickly calls for the bell. Pvt. Kernodle does not know what to do so he simply hangs out in the corner. Next to the ring and on the attack is Plowboy Frazier, Hillbilly Jim and Big Bubba. Last night, Jerry Jarrett announced that Sawyer and Hercules will face Frazier and Hillbilly Jim in the first ever Loser Leave Town Televised Match next Sunday. This feud has been brewing long since before the USWA was even born. Frazier quit the House of Humperdink due to Humperdink’s allegiance with Tojo Yamamoto who denounced America and said that Japan should execute another attack on America like they had done in Japan. They head right for the House of Humperdink and go on the attack. It is now 4 against 3 and Korchenko has Sir Oliver Humperdink by the throat. The fans are going wild as this is turning into a full riot. Tojo Yamamoto rushes to the ring leading both Mr. Saito and Killer Khan into action. Khan quickly sprays the Asian green mist into the eyes of Kernodle and then they go after Frazier. Solie is pleading for help from the back but I don’t think there is enough security to stop this mayhem that Lance Russell is announcing. Finally, Corporal Kirchner and Sgt. Slaughter hit the ring and turn the tide in favor of the good guys. Slaughter tosses Khan and Saito to the floor while the Hillbillies take care of the House of Humperdink. Somehow, Korchenko has escaped to the locker room and he is lucky as he did not have a friend anywhere in the ring. The Hillbillies and The Fort Bragg Brotherhood stand united in the ring daring their enemies to make another attack. Humperdink and Yamamoto decide discretion is the better part of valor and head to the locker room. The Hillbillies and the Fort Bragg Brotherhood head to the interview desk where Frazier and Hillbilly Jim announce it will be there pleasure to rid the USWA of such low lives as the House of Humperdink. Sgt. Slaughter speaks for the Brotherhood and says that he is sick and tired of the Shogunate “maggots” and that they better be ready for a fight they will never forgot. As they are heading to commercial break, Lance Russell can be over heard speaking to Gordon Solie. “What in the Sam Hill was that all about?” Solie replied that he has not seen a brawl like that to start a show in a long, long time. __________________________________________________________________________ COMMERCIAL BREAK WITH PROMO FOR UPCOMING SHOWS __________________________________________________________________________ Interview with The Kansas Jayhawks and Austin Idol with Rock Riddle (Review Sat attack) Solie and Russell want an explanation for last night’s attack on Tommy “Wildfire” Rich and that it was over the top that they tried to hang him with their bull ropes. Rock Riddle says that Tommy Rich tries to play the part of the “perfect” wrestler but it fact he is just a dirty rule breaker who has all the fans fooled. Riddle went on to remind people that he is “the original Mr. Perfect” and that his men, Bobby Jaggers, Dutch Mantell, and Austin Idol have now formed the perfect stable and if Rich dares to get in the way that he will really be hanged next time. Jaggers and Mantell, both spitting tobacco as they speak go on with a rant about how the same will hold true for them ignorant rookies, Bam Bam Bigelow and Shane Douglas if they continue to follow the likes of Jerry Lawler. They continue to announce how they are going to wipe the mat with Lawler and Rich in tonight’s main event. This match was to be just a second round match in the USWA World Tag Team Title Tournament but now throw in the attempted hanging of Tommy Rich last night by the Jawhawks and this match has the making a an all-out war! Idol takes the microphone and in an unusual moment of calmness says that he is going to end the careers of both Lawler and Rich. He is tired of those two thinking they saved Memphis and Georgia wrestling from disaster. He calls them both arrogant and naïve and that they better watch their backs. “The Perfect Stable” walks off set” as Lance Russell turns his attention to the ring and the next match. Match: The Sheepherders and Roddy Piper with JR Foley vs Bam Bam Bigelow, Shane Douglas and Jimmy Valiant This match was very exciting. Jimmy Valiant had the entire match in the palm of his hand as the Commonwealth could not figure out his unorthodox style. He was hitting them with rights and lefts and sometimes taking on two men at once. JR Foley distracted the ref, Paul Morton, long enough for Piper to execute a low blow on Valiant and the match was never the same. The rookies performed well but were just not used to the dirty tactics of the Sheepherders and Piper. Douglas was able to connect with a powerbomb on Luke Williams but Butch Miller made the save before the count of one. Eventually, with Valiant and Piper brawling outside the ring, the Sheepherders knocked Douglas off the apron and then connected with a “Battering Ram” on Bigelow for the victory. __________________________________________________________________________ COMMERCIAL BREAK WITH PROMO FOR UPCOMING SHOWS __________________________________________________________________________ MATCH: USWA NATIONAL TITLE MATCH: MR. USA TONY ATLAS VS PORKCHOP CASH Tony Atlas has been a fighting champion and tonight is no different. He has taken on all comers and tonight, he will be facing the one man Ernie Ladd has left in his Army. Atlas comes to the ring to a loud ovation and this fan support helps him to gain the momentum right away. There a few momentum swings but at about the 9:00 mark, Atlas seems to be on the verge of victory. Unfortunately for him, as he lifted Cash up for a Gorilla Press Slam, he did not see Ladd attacking from the back. Ladd connects with a Big Boot from behind as Atlas held Cash up in the air. Atlas crumbled to the ground and ref Paul Morton quickly called for the bell disqualifying Cash. The two don’t seem to care and just beat Atlas for a few minutes. Solie is heard saying, “and it looks like… yes it is indeed Butch Reed coming to the aid of his now friend Tony Atlas.” Reed hits the ring but he is all alone at Atlas is down. Ladd and Cash survive the initial onslaught and then take down Reed. Cash drapes Reed’s leg across the ropes as Ladd nails it with Big Boot after Big Boot. Reed appears unable to stand up and Atlas definitely needs medical attention. When they think there work is done, Cash and Ladd head to the interview desk. Ladd grabs the microphone and tells Solie and Russell not to speak for once is their useless lives but to listen. Ladd goes on to say that he heard that Atlas and Reed want to rid wrestling of Ernie Ladd! He lets the fans know that that is not going to happen and that his army is once again growing stronger. Stronger in talent, stronger in will and most importantly, stronger in numbers. Lance Russell asks who now has defected to his “Army.” Ladd and Cash ignore the question and raise their fist in a sign of black power and walk off. Solie, in a very sarcastic way says, “Fair enough. Let’s take a break.” __________________________________________________________________________ COMMERCIAL BREAK WITH PROMO FOR UPCOMING SHOWS __________________________________________________________________________ 2nd Rd Match: USWA WORLD TAG TEAM TITLE TOURNAMENT: Jerry Lawler & Tommy Rich vs The Kansas Jayhawks with Rock Riddle The fans are on the edge of their seats for this one. Rock Riddle is quickly becoming one of the most hated men in all of the USWA but there is no denying that he has his men performing on a very high level. As Rich and Lawler are being announced, The Jayhawks sneak attack. Martell is all over Rich and Jaggers is beating Lawler. Ref Jerry Calhoun finally restores order and Lawler and Jaggers are the legal men in the ring. Lawler is able to gain the momentum and almost claims the victory after a “Vertical Suplayyy” as Solie describes the action but Mantell made the save. The action is now high paced with a lot of brawling tactics for the next 10 minutes or so. The end comes as Riddle distracts the ref after Mantell connected on a high, high hip toss which had Tommy Rich arching his back in pain. This distraction allows Mantell to reach in to his trunks and pull something out and place it inside his knee pad. The fans are screaming but the ref has no idea why. Mantell whips Rich into the ropes and goes for a running knee to the skull but Rich leaps over the knee and nails “Dirty” Dutch with a Lou Thesz Press. As the ref begins the count, Jaggers rushes in to make the save but Lawler catches him with a running clothesline. Jerry Calhoun completes the 3 count and the fans go wild. Lance Russell announce that Rich and Lawler have now reached the Semifinals in the USWA World Tag Title Tournament. Gordon Solie announces that they are just about out of time but for everyone come on out to the Mid-South Coliseum this Monday night for some great USWA Wrestling . Solie finishes with “The USWA says So long from Memphis. The Credits roll while the chaos continues. The screen fades to black.

    UNITED STATES WRESTLING ASSOCIATION

    USWA WRESTLING: 3/3/1984: WTBS SHOW AIRED NATIONALLY 6:05-8:05 TAPPED IN MEMPIS, TENNESSEE “Yello again everybody. Welcome to USWA Wrestling here on WTBS. I am Lance Russell along with Gordon Solie and Dave Brown. We have a jam packed show tonight so let’s get right to our first segment.” THIS WEEK IN THE USWA BY DAVE BROWN Lance Russell and Gordon Solie welcome fans to the Saturday night show on WTBS and they turn it over to Dave Brown for his segment, This Week in the USWA. Dave Brown begins with a reminder that the USWA is in the middle of a 16 team tournament to name the first ever USWA World Tag Team Champions and that the tournament continues tonight and that the finals will be in The Omni in Atlanta, Georgia on March 12th. · Dave continues on about the tournament with first round results from last Mondays’ card at The Omni it Atlanta, Georgia. The Sheepherders over Bam Bam Bigelow and Shane Douglas Ft. Bragg Brotherhood (Kernodle & Kirschner) over the Shogunate (Saito & Khan) VonRaschke & the Spoiler over Dream Machine and Sweet Brown Sugar. The Fabulous Ones over the Nightmares Buzz Sawyer & Hercules Hernandez over Hillbilly Jim & Plowboy Frazier · Brown continues by saying that tonight’s Main event will be a second round match which will pit Hacksaw Butch Reed and Tony Atlas against Buzz Sawyer and Hercules Hernandez. The fans go wild with this announcement. He also says that the rest of the second round matches have been set and those will take place at the Mid-South Coliseum this Monday night March 5th. · MATCH OF THE WEEK: Sgt. Slaughter defeated Tojo Yamamoto Slaughter was able to defeat Tojo in a wild and crazy match last week at The Omni. Both wrestlers were bruised, battered and bloodied. This match was a wild 15 minutes of hell both inside and outside the ring. In the end, Slaughter clamped on the Cobra Clutch and put the lights out on Tojo. He then climbed the ropes waving the American Flag as the patriotic crowd went wild. · Wrestler of the Week: Austin Idol The USWA World Champion legitimized this new wrestling organization by going out and defeating one of the best wrestlers in the world, Mil Mascaras. This match was the main event last Monday at while the fans were clearly in Mascaras’s corner, Idol’s win proves that the USWA World Champion can wrestle and defeat anyone in the business. Mascaras wowed the crowd with his aerial attacks but in the end, Idol was able to slap on the Las Vegas Leglock for the victory. Mascaras claimed that Idol’s manager, Rock Riddle tripped him which changed the momentum in favor of the champ but “Mr. Wonderful,” Rock Riddle says that was just sour grapes. · OTHER NOTES Dave continues on about the event at the Omni on March 12th saying it is billed as “The First Battle of Atlanta” and that it will be the first major event in USWA history. To all the fans throughout the nation, Dave delivers great news. This event will be broadcast live on WTBS. __________________________________________________________________________ COMMERCIAL BREAK WITH PROMO FOR UPCOMING SHOWS ____________________________________________________________________________ Sir Oliver Humperdink and Korstia Korchenko are at the interview desk where Lance Russell asks Humperdink how can he support a Russian with the way things are in the world today? Humperdink tells the “Pencil Nose” to shut up and he is not in favor of any country. He is in favor a wrestlers who will bring him titles and he sent a lot of money to the Kremlin to get Korchenko here. Solie asks him how could he trust the Kremlin! Humperdink quickly changes the subject to Plowboy Frazier and that he wants Frazier and that stupid cousin of his in a loser leave town match because he can’t stomach to be in the same organizations as those hicks. All of a sudden a phone by the desk rings. Solie excuses himself as he picks up the phone. Solie is heard saying, “Waitaminute. Did I hear you correctly Mr. Jarrett. Ok, I will tell him right now. No question about it. He might not like that but I will tell him. Indeed.” Humperdink starts to yell at him and tell Solie how rude that was. Solie says he is sorry and that he has a message for Humperdink. Humperdink acts like he can’t be bothered. Solie says Jarrett said that Jarrett has agreed to the loser-leaf down match between the House of Humperdink and Plowboy Frazier and Hillbilly Jim and that this match will be the first loser leave town match on National Television. It will be next Sunday, March 11th. Humperdink seems very happy with that idea. Solie continues with the other part of Jarrett’s message which is that since the Main Event today is part of the USWA Tournament that it will not be part of the $5000 Humperdink Challenge. Humperdink now looks relieved as he believes that he might have just saved a lot of money. While he has confidence in his men, he was unsure if Sawyer and Hernandez could defeat Atlas and Reed in less than 5 minutes. Humperdink says that Jarrett has finally made a decision using his brain. Solie says he is not done. Jarrett is forcing the House of Humperdink Challenge to continue tonight and that Korchenko must be the man involved. Humperdink seems ok with that until Solie says that Jarrett has picked his opponent for him and that Korchenko should head to the ring now. MATCH: House of Humperdink Challenge: Korstia Korchenko vs A Mystery Opponent The fans are still screaming as Humperdink escorts Korchenko to the ring. Korchenko enters the ring waving the flag of the USSR and asks the fans to stand for the Russian National Anthem. The fans will have nothing to do with this and berate him the entire time. To the surprise of Korchenko his microphone goes dead and the fans hear “The Boy from New York City” begin to blare over the speakers. The fans go wild as The Boogie Woogie Man, Jimmy Valiant comes dancing out. Once in the ring, Valiant goes right after Korchenko. Ref Paul Morton calls for the bell and the match is official. Valiant just beats the hell out of Korchenko for 5 minutes when he finally puts him out of his misery when he follows up an elbow smash with a piledriver. Humperdink is beside himself and goes after Korchenko. He summons Sawyer and Hernandez from the back and the crowd is nervous for Jimmy Valiant. Instead, Humperdink tells his men to attack Korchenko and they continue the beating. Morton hands the Boogie Woogie Man $5000 of Humperdink’s money and as the beating of Korchenko continues, Valiant circles the outside of the ring high fiving the fans and actually handing them some of Humperdink’s money. They are going wild as Valiant leaves the ring area. Solie says “We will be right back. __________________________________________________________________________ COMMERCIAL BREAK WITH PROMO FOR UPCOMING SHOWS __________________________________________________________________________ MATCH: Ernie Ladd and Porkchop Cash vs Wendell Cooley and Steve Simpson Ladd and Cash struggle a bit in this match as the rookies continue to improve. Ladd was able to distract the ref while Cash hit Cooley with a low blow. Cash quickly tagged in Ladd who connected with a Big Boot for the win at 9:45. Ladd and Cash make their way to the interview desk where they are congratulated by Russell and Solie but Ladd wants nothing to do with nice talk and goes right to calling out Hacksaw Butch Reed. He continues to say that his Army is not done with Reed and before all is said and done, he will run Reed out of the USWA. Cash and Ladd raise their fists in a sign of black power and walk off set. Gordon Solie says “fair enough. We will have to get Reed’s take on this whole situation. __________________________________________________________________________ COMMERCIAL BREAK WITH PROMO FOR UPCOMING SHOWS __________________________________________________________________________ The Fabulous Ones go to the interview desk where they are welcomed by Solie and Russell. Both Keirn and Lane express excitement for their victory in the first round of the USWA World Tag Team Title Tournament and promise the fans that they are going to try their best against Baron Von Raschke and The Spoiler this Monday at the Mid-South Coliseum. Solie and Russell thank them for their time and wish them luck in tonight’s match as they head to the ring. Match: The Fabulous Ones vs Tommy Gilbert and Brett Wayne The fans go wild as they are so excited to have the Fab Ones back in town. They come out to ZZ Top and “Sharpe Dressed Man.” They are dressed in partial tuxedos and perform a partial strip tease as the young ladies in the audience go crazy. As for the match, it is high energy all the way with two athletic and popular face teams going head to head. Both teams perform some great double team moves and there are a few momentum changes. It looked like the Gilbert and Wayne might pull off the upset as Wayne went for a Frog Splash off the top rope, but Stan Lane rolled out of the way at the last second. He followed that up with a quick tag to Keirn who hooked in the inverted Boston Crab which caused the tap out at 7:54. The two teams shook hands after the match which is always nice to see. Gilbert and Wayne headed back to the locker room when from out of nowhere came The Spoiler and Baron Von Raschke with chairs. They each hit one of the Fabulous Ones in the back with a chair and then went straight for their specialties, The Brain Claw. The Fabulous Ones were screaming in pain and tapping out but the Clawmasters refused to release the hold. The crowd began to scream as Tommy Rich and Jerry Lawler hit the ring and threw some wild haymakers before the Clawmasters ran for cover. Rich, Lawler and The Fabulous Ones go to the interview desk where Rich and Lawler are all fired up saying that they got each other’s back and anytime these goons want a piece of them all they got to do is show up. The Fabulous Ones, a bit wobbly but regaining their composure now really hype up their match with Raschke and the Spoiler for Monday night saying these two have no idea what they have just done and that they can’t wait to get some revenge. __________________________________________________________________________ COMMERCIAL BREAK WITH PROMO FOR UPCOMING SHOWS __________________________________________________________________________ Piper’s Pit with Special Guest Hillbilly Jim 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 stand behind him with their arms folded. Piper calls out Hillbilly Jim but starts to insult his intelligence even before Jim gets to the set. He asks the Sheepherders if they think this big redneck will be able to find the set without a map. The Sheepherders emphatically shake their heads no. When Jim does get on set, Piper asks him where he is from and gets the response, Mudlick, Kentucky. Piper repeats Mudlick, Kentucky and then asks if he ever met anybody with teeth before. Jim kind of shrugs it off and keeps smiling. Piper wants to know if Jim has ever wraseld before and Jim says he tussled with the pigs a bit but nothing like this before. Piper starts making some fiddle noises with his mouth and Jim just keeps smiling. Piper says that he has a proposition for him and that he would like to become his manager and that he would pay him $200 a week. Jim says that is awful nice of him but he would have to ask his cousins first. Piper says that any decision he was going to make should be made with brain cells and since his cousins don’t have any, he should just listen to Piper. Jim keeps saying he doesn’t know but Piper keeps the pressure on all the while making hillbilly jokes. The crows starts to stir and from the back comes Plowboy Frazier and Big Bubba. They tell Piper that they have heard enough and usher Hillbilly Jim away. Piper says a few more redneck jokes and walks off set. Hillbilly Jim has now become kind of like the class pet to the entire USWA Universe. __________________________________________________________________________ COMMERCIAL BREAK WITH PROMO FOR UPCOMING SHOWS __________________________________________________________________________ Match: USWA WORLD CHAMPION AUSTIN IDOL with Rock Riddle vs Sweet Brown Sugar In a non-title match, the fans are treated to an excellent match. The match has a few momentum changes but in the end, Rock Riddle hit Sweet Brown Sugar with a chair to the knee after Idol tossed him through the middle ropes. Ref Jerry Calhoun took a moment to admonish Idol and this is when the damage was done. Riddle rolled Sugar back into the ring where Idol clamped on the Las Vegas Leglock. This lead to his victory by submission at the 11:04 mark. Riddle and Idol headed to the interview desk where both Russell and Solie questioned their ethics. Riddle and Idol acted like they had no idea what they were talking about. Riddle went on to remind fans that he was the “Original Mr. Wonderful” and that together, Austin Idol was quickly becoming the “Perfect World Champion.” Idol spent the next few minutes calling out Lawler, Rich and Valiant and saying that they were not worth his time and that Jarrett should really hire some competition for. Lance Russell said that Jerry Jarrett had given him a message to relay to Austin Idol. Idol said that Jarrett was too much of a coward to be here in person to deliver it but for Russell to get on with it. Russell said that Idol would defend his belt at the First Battle of Atlanta on March 12th and that his opponent would be announce tomorrow night right here on WTBS. Idol acted like it did not matter who it was and that he could beat anyone. Riddle and Idol strut off set. _____________________________________________________________________ COMMERCIAL PLAYS FOR JERRY LAWLER’S NEW RESTAURANT ______________________________________________________________ Match: Tommy Rich vs “Dirty” Dutch Mantel with Rock Riddle This is a rare singles match for Mantel since his return to the area but the fans know how ruthless he can be. When Rich makes his way to the ring, the goes go wild and are all over him. There is little resemblance to a wrestling match as these two just are in an all-out brawl. It looked like Rich was to gain the victory after he followed up a huge elbow drop with a sleeper but before the ref counted out Mantell, the fans started to scream as both Bobby Jaggers and Austin Idol hit the ring. They beat on Rich for a moment and then tied their bull ropes around the neck on Tommy Rich. Those CWA fans in Memphis recently saw the Jayhawks do this to Mark Youngblood and Jules Strongbow and you could feel the tension in the air. They were about to launch Rich over the top rope and basically hang him with their bull ropes. Just before this occurred, the TV audience heard Solie say that help was on the way. Jerry Lawler hit the ring with his two protégées, Bam Bam Bigelow and Shane Douglas. They quickly threw some big punches and cleared the ring. Rock Riddle’s Gang of Perfection left the set to fight another day. Lawler untied Rich and the 4 men headed to the interview desk. Russell and Solie thanked Lawler, Bigelow and Douglas for helping Tommy Rich. Tommy Rich also thanked them but went on to say that all that was, was a set up! Lawler and Rich are going to take on the Jawhawks tomorrow night in a second round match for the USWA World Tag Titles and they were just trying to one of us out. Lawler takes the microphone and goes off on Riddle and Idol and says that his days as champ are numbered. __________________________________________________________________________ COMMERCIAL BREAK WITH PROMO FOR UPCOMING SHOWS __________________________________________________________________________ Match: MAIN EVENT: Hacksaw Butch Reed and Tony Atlas vs Hercules Hernandez and Buzz Sawyer with Sir Oliver Humperdink Again, the USWA continues to change what wrestling on TV is all about. This could be a main event in any arena in the country and tonight, it is free on national television. Gordon Solie begins by saying, “Katie bar the door, indeed, this is going to be something special.” Gordon Solie could not have been more right. This match had it all. From momentum changes to Humperdink trying to get involved to all 4 men in the ring at the same time with Lance Russell saying, “You cannot believe the mayhem. The fans were at the edge of their seats but things looked bleak. Reed and Atlas just couldn’t get anything going. For once, their strength was somewhat neutralized as Hernandez is just a beast and Sawyer, as Solie said, has a low center of gravity and was tough to take off his feet. After a quick double team move by the House of Humperdink, Sawyer climbed to the top and hit a huge frog splash on Reed. The only reason why this was not the end was that Atlas made the save. Hernandez now went after Atlas and ref Jerry Calhoun lost control. Humperdink was able to slip Sawyer some sort of foreign object and he connected with Reed’s temple and out went the lights. While Hernandez and Atlas continued their brawl, Sawyer covered Reed for the pin! Ernie Ladd and Porkchop Cash took this perfect opportunity to attack Atlas and Reed. This beating continued as Sawyer and Hernandez joined in. It was now 4-2 until the fans started to scream and Plowboy Frazier and Hillbilly Jim hit the ring and went right after the House of Humperdink. The 8 man brawl continues with Russell saying,”You cannot believe the mayhem. As time winds down on the show, Solie tells the fans, “So long from Memphis.” The screen fades to black.
  8. Love wrestling from the "Heart of Dixie" Liked the match with Michaels and how he is continuing to learn Good Luck to the RnR. They have a lot of quality teams to deal with in Southeastern Championship Wrestling. Loved the Beat the Champ Match. Those dirty nightmares switching those masks only to be sold out by the ref. Wonder if Johnny Rich can do what Tommy couldn't? Love Bob teaching his sons how to take a beating!

    Just love everything you do! You do a great job of bringing in talent to keep your angles fresh. I also think the Japan tour stuff with Hogan actually makes your promotion better. It is like a rush of excitement when he returns. I am not a Hogan fan but their is no doubt about the energy he brings. That main event with the Sinister 6 was just so well done. I could read each part of the match and I could envision it in my head!

    Thanks so much for the review! I took some of your writing ideas with the tag matches and then building them to 6 or 8 main tag matches to keep feuds going and then run the singles matches as part of the super cards.

    Love the idea of a Snuka-Flair rematch I admit that I m not a wrestling expert but I don't remember Bockwinkle and Funk on the same team. I think you have come up with something special that the actual promoters missed in real life. Same goes for Race and Adams. GREAT USE OF YOUR ROSTER! Your tag team division has so many options that I never know who is going to be on top. That is what wrestling is all about. Keep the fans guessing. Great Job!

    Now those are some awesome stables! Hogans Heroes vs The Sinister Six! Really looking forward to that. Many Fernandez is a beast of a Raggin Bull. He must be fun to use in your cards. I view him much like I do Iceman. Exciting, Tough and keeps the crowd involved but never made it all the way to the top but I think you got them going in the right direction. I could see him challenging Hogan in the future.
  16. Loved the recent shows. The Spoiler alert kept my attention from beginning to end. It was well done even though we knew the results going in. "Alabama us Armstrong Country." was a great quote. Enjoy the Rock n Roll Express. Your new heel faction of Landell, Baby Doll and the Bullet will be fun to follow.

The fans were really behind Sweet Brown Sugar and his quickness and athleticism were causing Ladd some difficulties. Ladd threw Sugar into ref Paul Morton. As Sugar went to check on the ref, Ladd bounced off the ropes and hit his opponent with a Big Boot. This was all she wrote. Just as Morton was regaining his footing, Ladd covered Sweet Brown Sugar for the pin at 9:54. Ernie Ladd went to the interview desk where both Solie and Russell admonished Ladd for intentionally pushing Sweet Brown Sugar into the ref. Ladd, as you would expect, starting yelling at both announcers and called them liars. Ladd continued to discuss the match and said that he did not understand why he had to wrestle people like Sweet Brown Sugar as his is clearly not in his league. Solie changed the direction of the interview by bringing up former Ladd’s Army member, Butch Reed. Ladd now really went off. He said he made Reed and the Reed owes him everything that he has in the world of wrestling. He continues by saying that Reed is ungrateful and selfish and that he will get his! Gordon Solie ends the interview with his sarcastic “fair enough!” Next, Sir Oliver Humperdink and his stable known as the House of Humperdink come out to the interview desk. Humperdink begins by insulting Lance Russell and calling him “Pencil Nose.” He goes on to say that he hopes Ted Turner will be more fair because Jerry Jarrett is a cheat and has not given his men, Buzz Sawyer, Hercules Hernandez and the big Russian, Korstia Korchenko even a sniff of a title shot. According to Humperdink, his men are the toughest in all of the USWA. Lance Russell reminds him of his recent troubles with Plowboy Frazier and his relatives, Hillbilly Jim and Big Bubba. Humperdink again tells Russell to shut up and Gordon Solie tells Humperdink “that will be enough of that.” __________________________________________________________________________ COMMERCIAL BREAK WITH PROMO FOR UPCOMING SHOWS __________________________________________________________________________ MATCH: House of Humperdink Challenge: Hercules Hernandez vs Steve Simpson If Simpson can last 5 minutes, he will earn $5000 of Sir Oliver Humperdink’s money. Steve Simpson gets some praise from Gordon Solie as he calls this rookie “double tough.” As the match begins, it is obvious that these two wrestlers are in tremendous shape but as the match progresses forward, it is also evident that Simpson can’t yet hold his own against Hercules. The end comes at 4:01 as Hercules puts Simpson in the Backbreaker Rack forcing the submission. Hercules refuses to break the hold long after the ref has called for the bell and is just punishing this rookie. The crowd begins to cheer as you here Solie say, “and it looks like…. Yes. It is indeed Plowboy Frazier, Hillbilly Jim and Big Bubba rushing to the ring.” Solie continues by saying “Humperdink and Hernandez decide discretion is the better part of valor” as they scamper from the ring to the locker rom. Plowboy and his relatives head to the interview desk where they say they will not stand for any more wrestlers being wronged from the House of Humperdink. They also ask Jerry Jarrett to sanction a 6 man tag match at “The First Battle of Atlanta” __________________________________________________________________________ COMMERCIAL BREAK WITH PROMO FOR UPCOMING SHOWS __________________________________________________________________________ Match: The Fabulous Ones vs The Nightmares The fans go wild as they are so excited to have the Fab Ones back in town. They come out to ZZ Top and “Sharpe Dressed Man.” They are dressed in partial tuxedos and perform a partial strip tease as the young ladies in the audience go crazy. As for the match, it is high energy all the way. Both teams perform some great double team moves and there are a few momentum changes. It looked like the Nightmares might pull off the upset as Nightmare #2 went for a Frog Splash off the top rope, but Stan Lane rolled out of the way at the last second. He followed that up with a quick tag to Keirn who hooked in the inverted Boston Crab which caused the tap out at 7:54. The Fabulous Ones go to the interview desk where they are welcomed back to the area by Solie and Russell. Both Keirn and Lane express excitement to be in the USWA and they know there are many great team here including the Sheepherders but they have one goal; to be the first ever USWA World Tag Team Champions. __________________________________________________________________________________________ COMMERCIAL BREAK WITH PROMO FOR UPCOMING SHOWS __________________________________________________________________________________________ Piper’s Pit with Special Guest Tojo Yamamoto 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 stand behind him with their arms folded. Piper calls out Tojo Yamamoto who walks slowly onto the set and the two embrace. Piper expresses relief that he finally has a guest who feels the same about these lazy Americans and that he hopes that together, The British Commonwealth and The Shogunate can put these USWA rednecks like Jerry Lawler and Tommy Rich in their place. Tojo Yamamoto begins by saying “Mis-tah Piper, I am honered to be here with you today. I often have heavy heart when I come to work. I feel soooorry for these poor Americans. They looked up to fools like Laaawler and Toooommmy Rich. They also salute the stuuupid flag that Saaaargent Slaaaghter brings to the ring. That is the flag of losers. Piper is really loving this as the fans begin to boo and throw things towards the set. Piper takes this chance to agree with Yamamoto and states that it is this actions that show how little class Americans to have. Yamamoto calls out his men, Mr. Saito and Killer Khan who come out to the set with a box. Yamamoto says, Mis-tah Piper, I want to give you gift. Please open and see what we have made for you. Piper opens the box and sees an American Flag and seems confused. He says, Mr. Yamamoto, I am unsure what I am to do with this. It is a flag of a country that I thought we were both against. Tojo smiles and says please tag flag out of box. Piper obliges and asks the Sheepherders to unravel the giant American flag. As they unravel it, they all begin to smile. They hold up the flag and show it to the camera. It is a normal American flag but across the top of the stars are the letters RIP. The first star has the name Bill Dundee written on it while the next two stars have the names Ricky Morton and Robert Gibson. Tojo says, Evveeeeery time we hurt an American, we place his name on a star. Together, Mis-tah Piper, we fill up the flag with injured Americans and make the world a better place. Piper smiles and says he knows the perfect place for the flag. He drapes it over his set for everyone to see. Piper and Tojo now bow to each other and seem like they now have a goal in place to hurt Americans. Piper wishes Mr. Saito luck in his match against USWA National Champion Tony Atlas which is coming up after this commercial break. __________________________________________________________________________ COMMERCIAL BREAK WITH PROMO FOR UPCOMING SHOWS __________________________________________________________________________ Match: USWA NATIONAL CHAMPION Tony Atlas vs Mr. Saito with Tojo Yamamoto The match is really back and forth and the crowd is getting nervous that Tony Atlas could lose the National Championship to someone who is Anti-American. Every time it looks like Atlas can get some momentum going, Tojo distracts the ref and Saito turns to some dirty tactic to keep Atlas down. Gordon Solie is really upset by Saito’s tactics and also that Tojo is even at ringside. Tojo recently surrendered his managerial license to once again become a full time wrestler and Solie makes the point that he should not even be at ringside. The crowd begins to go wild as Solie is heard saying, “Indeed, Indeed, it is Hacksaw Reed coming to ringside. Reed goes right after Tojo and the two start to fight outside the ring. This gives Atlas a chance to control the tempo in the ring. Finally after a few minutes with the advantage, Atlas catches Saito in the Gorilla Press Slam for the pin at 12:02. Atlas and Reed head to the interview desk where Atlas thanks Reed for his help and Hacksaw said he owed Atlas one and that he will continue to have his back. They also say how excited they are to be each other’ tag partners in the upcoming USWA World Tag Team Tournament and that they will work together to rid the USWA of people like Ernie Ladd and Tojo Yamamoto. COMMERCIAL PLAYS FOR JERRY LAWLER’S NEW RESTAURANT Match: Pvt. Kernodle vs Dirty Dutch Mantell with Rock Riddle These two have been mainly tag team wrestlers of late but tonight they are going it alone. Dutch plays hard to get in the beginning of the match but this was only to get Kernodle to lose his focus. Kernodle rushed in only to be caught by a knee to the gut. Rock Riddle did his best to distract the ref which gave Mantell more chances to play dirty. Kernodle turned the momentum his way and looked like he might gain the victory after a reverse neckbreaker but that’s when Bobby Jaggers hit the ring with his bull rope and tried to whip Kernodle. Kernodle rolled away in the nick of time and that’s when Cpl. Kirchner joined him in the ring and challenged the Kansas Jayhawks. The Jayhawks, under the direction of Rock Riddle, head to the back to fight another day. Kernodle was the winner by disqualification but he is really hot. The Fort Bragg Brotherhood, who were joined by Sgt. Slaughter, headed to the interview desk where both Solie and Russell asked them what that was all about and how they plan on dealing with Tojo Yamamoto, Mr. Saito and Killer Khan. As you would expect, Kernodle was all fired up and said he had no idea why Jaggers entered the ring but if they want a fight, he is willing to meet them. Slaughter said the same about those “maggots from Japan” and said that he wants a “Boot Camp” match with them if they are man enough to accept. __________________________________________________________________________ COMMERCIAL BREAK WITH PROMO FOR UPCOMING SHOWS __________________________________________________________________________ Match: MAIN EVENT: Jerry Lawler & Tommy Rich vs Austin Idol with Rock Riddle & Roddy Piper with JR Foley Again, the USWA continues to change what wrestling on TV is all about. This is not your typical 1984 wrestling show when the star gets to beat on the sucker of the day. This match pits the 4 biggest stars in the USWA, including the USWA World Heavyweight Champion, Austin Idol, in a first round match to advance in the USWA Tournament and add to that these 4 hate each, this is going to be really special. Gordon Solie begins by saying, “Katie bar the door, indeed, this is going to be something special.” Gordon Solie could not have been more right. This match had it all. From momentum changes to managers trying to get involved to all 4 men in the ring at the same time with Lance Russell saying, “You cannot believe the mayhem. The fans were at the edge of their seats but things looked bleak as Idol was strapped in the Figure 4 on Lawler with Rich and Piper battling on the outside. Lawler just refused to give in and dragged himself to the ropes forcing the break but the King had trouble getting to his feet. All 4 were now back in the ring with both Riddle and Foley on the apron. Idol and Piper were about to whip Lawler and Rich into the boots of their managers who had them draped over the ropes. Lawler and Rich reversed the Irish Whips causing Idol and Piper to crash into their managers, Lawler and Rich both elbowed Piper in the head causing him to fall through the middle rope and out on to the floor. Lawler then whipped Idol into the ropes as Rich connected with a Lou Thesz Press for the pin. Both Riddle and Foley are screaming about the double team move and that Idol was not even the legal man in the ring but the ref will hear nothing of it. The Sheepherders rush out to the aid of Idol and Piper but before they can get to the ring, Reed and Atlas join Rich and Lawler in the ring. The crowd goes wild as for the first time in a while in these parts, Gordon Solie says “No question about it, the good guys are in control. So long from Atlanta, Georgia. The screen fades to black. USWA WRESTLING: 2/26/1984: WTBS SHOW AIRED NATIONALLY 5:05-6:05 TAPPED IN ATLANTA, GEORGIA “Yello again everybody. Welcome to USWA Wrestling here on WTBS. I am Lance Russell along with Gordon Solie. We have a jam packed show tonight so let’s get right to our first match.” Match: Bam Bam Bigelow and Shane Douglas vs Ken Raper and David Johnson In a rare TV appearance for these rookies, they actually look pretty good. The match ends after a powerslam by Douglas on David Johnson. While they are still a little awkward, there is no denying their power and agility. After the match, Bigelow and Douglas are joined by Jerry Lawler and Tommy Rich at the interview desk. Solie and Russell congratulate the rookies who both say they owe all their success to Jerry Lawler who has been working with them. Lawler pumps them up a bit but then the interview turns to the tournament for the USWA World Tag Titles in which Lawler and Rich just advances to the second round. Rich and Lawler both said how great it would be to win the title but that they also were still after Idol and his world championship. Lawler said that neither Idol nor that slimy manager, Rock Riddle good hide much longer. Rich spoke about how he was just a country boy but his mommy taught him some respect and since Idol wasn’t raised right, that he was going to have to teach him how to be a real man. He was all “fired up” and said that he and Lawler could fight just as dirty as Idol and Piper and that they don’t know what they are in for. They also pump up tonight’s main event that features Lawler, Rich and The Fab Ones vs Idol, Piper and The Sheepherders. Sir Oliver Humperdink makes his way out to the interview desk and Lawler starts his “Humpty Dumpty” routine and wonders why Humperdink has waddled out to the set. Humperdink starts by pointing at Rich and saying that” Rich is a marked man. The House of Humperdink is family and when one of its “dogs” feels betrayed, they will hunt as one. Their prey is one Tommy Rich.” Lawler asks is he has completely lost his marbles and all Humperdink does is start howling at the moon like a Mad Dog.” Gordon Solie breaks in with his “We’ll be back. We’ll be right back.” __________________________________________________________________________ COMMERCIAL BREAK WITH PROMO FOR UPCOMING SHOWS __________________________________________________________________________ Match: Hacksaw Reed, Tony Atlas vs Ernie Ladd & Porkchop Cash In another first round match for the USWA World Tag Titles, we see the first time Reed and Ladd have meet since their recent failing out. While Ladd and Reed tried every dirty trick they knew, there was no stopping these two young powerhouses. The end came after a few momentum changes when Reed connected with a Gorilla Press Slam on Cash which lead to the pin at 13:15. Ladd never made any attempt to make the save but kept yelling at Reed saying he aint nothing. It is obvious that the problems between these two are just getting started. After the match, Reed and Atlas go to the interview table where Lance Russell and Gordon Solie ask congratulate them on their win. Reed and Atlas are grateful but Reed continues to yell about Ladd and how he will end his career. Next, Sir Oliver Humperdink and his stable known as the House of Humperdink come out to the interview desk. Humperdink begins by insulting Lance Russell and calling him “Pencil Nose.” He goes on to say that he hopes Ted Turner will be more fair because Jerry Jarrett is a cheat and has not given his men, Buzz Sawyer, Hercules Hernandez and the big Russian, Korstia Korchenko even a sniff of a title shot. According to Humperdink, his men are the toughest in all of the USWA. Lance Russell reminds him of his recent troubles with Plowboy Frazier and his relatives, Hillbilly Jim and Big Bubba. Humperdink again tells Russell to shut up and Gordon Solie tells Humperdink “that will be enough of that.” __________________________________________________________________________ COMMERCIAL BREAK WITH PROMO FOR UPCOMING SHOWS __________________________________________________________________________ MATCH: Big Bubba & Hillbilly Jim vs The Clawmasters This is the first time the fans get to see Big Bubba and Hillbilly Jim in action as a team and they love the energy that they bring to the ring. They enter the ring to some down home fiddle music as Hillbilly Jim dances around the ring. As for the match, it is a back and forth affair. Both Baron Von Raschke and The Spoiler were able to clamp on their Iron Claws but both times, they were broken up by their opponents reaching the ropes. The Spoiler showed great agility walking the top rope and following it up with an elbow smash to the head. The House of Humperdink comes out to ringside and Buzz Sawyer and Hercules Hernandez seem to really distract Bubba and Hillbilly Jim. This allowed the Spoiler to once again clamp on the Brain Claw on Bug Bubba and he was forced to submit. This is considered a small upset by Bubba and Jim are furious and went outside the ring where the 4 men really went at it! Lance Russell was heard saying, “You cannot believe the mayhem.” Officials and wrestlers poured out from the back and were able to restore some order as they went to commercial break. __________________________________________________________________________ COMMERCIAL BREAK WITH PROMO FOR UPCOMING SHOWS __________________________________________________________________________ MATCH: MAIN EVENT: 8 Man Tag Team Match Jerry Lawler, Tommy Rich &The Fabulous Ones vs Austin Idol, Roddy Piper & the Sheepherders As you would expect, this was wild from the start. The fan favorites had their moments but the dirty tactics of the heels also allowed them time with the advantage. There were times when Rock Riddle and JR Foley caused enough of a distraction to allow their men to take complete control. All eight men were in the ring at the same time and where paired off in an all-out brawl. Lawler vs Piper, Rich vs Idol and The Fab Ones vs The Sheepherders. Lance Russell was heard saying that there was about 2 minutes left in the show when all of a sudden, The House of Humperdink hit the ring. Buzz Sawyer and another crazed looking man who neither Solie nor Russell knew went right after Wildfire Rich. Hercules Hernandez helped Piper double team Lawler and all three managers joined the Sheepherders in their attack on the Fab Ones. What a huge differences 24 hours has made in the USWA. Last night, the fan favorites ended the show in control of the ring but tonight it is all heels! The fans can’t believe what is happening. Russell wonders if “anybody could handle a fight where the numbers were so against them.” Solie is heard saying that both Rich and Lawler’s heads have been lacerated.” After another minute of the beating the show comes to an end with Gordon Solie’s pleading for order to be restored and his signature sign off. “The USWA says So long from Atlanta. The Credits roll while the chaos continues. The screen fades to black followed by a promo for this Monday's return to the OMNI.

    Dirt Sheets

    UNITED STATES WRESTLING NEWS - The United States Wrestling Association show opened on WTBS to mixed ratings. It did wonderful in the Memphis and Atlanta areas due mostly to the promoting of the show in the final episodes of CWA Wrestling and through advertisements in Atlanta area newspapers that stated that Tommy Rich, Butch Reed and Tony Atlas would be back in action in the new USWA. -The USWA expects viewership to improve as people realize that many of the superstars from Georgia Championship Wrestling will once again be brought into their homes each and every Saturday and Sunday night along with such national figures as Jerry Lawler, Austin Idol and Roddy Piper. -To try and compete with the huge, powerful promotions like the AWA and the NWA, the USWA is still looking for partners throughout the country. Jarrett says he is willing to listen to all offers and would be willing to even give up some control of his World Championships. One person Jarrett would like to speak with is Frizt Von Erich. Fritz my have some interest but Jarrett knows this is not the time or the place. While Fritz Von Erich has been upset lately that World Class Championship Wrestling has been off the air for awhile and would love to get back in the game, he is still in morning due to the death of his son David. -The USWA is very unhappy with the working ability of Korstia Korchenko. He is a horrible wrestler and a bad speaker. Jarrett would love to keep him because nothing sells like a big tough Russian but other wrestlers have been complaining that they might get hurt in the ring with him. Jarrett would love to settle on a 3rd member of the House of Humperdink but is having trouble making the character fit on the national level. He recently decided that Lord Humongous was just such a strange gimmick that he thought the nation would not buy it.
