    American Wrestling Association results

    Isn't wrestling in general a bit gimmicky. Great use of your roster and a really fun show to read. Patrick was right. You have a wonderful tag division and when your champ is away, use the hand that you are dealt. Road Warriors vs The Samoans is a Main Event match anywhere, anytime. Martel is as good as anyone in the game, Many is a Bull, and never count out Buddy Landell. He is just as good as the other nature boy. Hogan better becareful when he returns.

    Memphis: CWA WRESTLING

    CWA WRESTLING: MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE MONDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 1984 ST. VALENTINE’S EVES MASSACRE MATCH #1: PVT KERNODLE, CPL. KIRCHNER & A MYSTERY PARTNER VS KILLER KHAN, MR. SAITO & TOJO YAMAMOTO PVT. Don Kernodle and Corporal Kirchner come to the ring first and you could just feel the suspense in the air. Who would be their tag team partner? All of a sudden, the crowd erupted as Sgt. Slaughter made his way down the aisle. He enters the ring and hugs his military brethren. Tojo leads the Shogunate out to a loud chorus of boos. The fans are letting them have it but they are giving it right back. The match is back and forth as includes many quick tags. The action got a little wild as Mr. Saito and Cpl. Kirchner were the legal men in the ring but they took the action to the aisles and walkways of the Coliseum. Somehow neither men were counted out. Once the action returned to the ring, Tojo was tagged in but at the same time, so was Sgt. Slaughter. The crowd went wild as these two men stood toe to toe with other and traded punches and chops. Eventually Slaughter won the exchange and he followed it up with a huge body slam. As Tojo was recovering, Slaughter was lurking behind him. As Tojo began to rise, Slaughter slapped on the Cobra Clutch! Both Saito and Khan try to rush in a save their manager, but the Brotherhood cut them off. The crowd roared as Tojo slumped down to the mat as the lights began to go out! The ref raised Tojo’s arm for a count of 1…2….3….. The fans rejoiced in America’s success and the FT. Bragg Brotherhood saluted them Sgt. Slaughter out of respect. How did they get him as a partner! · The Fort Bragg Brotherhood & Sgt. Slaughter defeated The Shogunate by submission at 19:43. MATCH #2 NWA MID-AMERICAN TAG TITLE MATCH THE KANSAS JAYHAWKS: DUTCH MANTELL & BOBBY JAGGERS VS MARK & JAY YOUNGLOOD The Youngbloods are excited about this match as they are back together as a team and with a chance to win the title! The brothers enter the ring in full Native American garb. The Kansas Jayhawks strut to the ring with even more arrogance than usual. They are also in full gear with their black cowboy hats, long cowboy coats, bull whips and a mouth full of tobacco. They enter to Willie Nelson’s “My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys.” The fan favorites control the early part of the match. Mark and Jay chop away at the champs but they fail to connect on any big moves. This pace allowed “Dirty” Dutch and the Hangman Bobby Jaggers to gain the advantage. After an unclean break, Jaggers really put it on Mark. He took a huge beating that included an Elbow Drop off the Top Rope by Jaggers. Jay was able to make the save but Mark couldn’t make a tag. Finally, Mark tagged in his brother and Jay cleaned house. Mark recovered quickly and the two went on the warpath. Jay was able to catch Dirty Dutch and he scooped him up onto his shoulders and nailed him with a fall down back body drop. The ref went for the pin as Jagger entered the ring to break up the tag. Mark rushed in a caught Jaggers with a chop that echoed throughout the arena. This allowed Ref Jerry Calhoun to complete the 3 count and the crowd went wild. The Youngbloods with the belts as the Kansas Jayhawks look stunned. The Youngbloods win the bout by pin at 13:24 and we have new Mid-American Tag Champs. MATCH #3 NWA MID-AMERICAN TITLE MATCH HACKSAW BUTCH REED VS MR. USA TONY ATLAS This is the second time this two freaks of nature have faced off for the NWA Mid-American Title. The first one ended in a 30 minute draw that saw some huge power moves performed by both men. Once again, Ernie Ladd escorts Butch Reed to the ring. Nobody seems to know why this is allowed. He is a wrestler and not a manager but I guess Jerry Jarrett has decided to pick his battles and this is not going to be one of them. His match was the same. Each man was able to really work the other over but neither could gain a pin-fall. The action spilled out onto the floor where the two threw some huge haymakers. Atlas was able to bodyslam Reed on the concrete floor and make his way back into the ring. It appeared that Reed would be counted out but Ladd picked him up and rolled Reed back in the ring. The crowd thought this be both great and strange at the same time. If Reed was counted out, he would have retained his title. By Ladd putting him in the ring, Atlas still had a chance to become champ. Atlas now with a huge advantage, scooped up Reed into a massive Bearhug! Reed refused to give up but was greatly weakened when Atlas broke the hold. The two once again began to trade blows. Ladd, once again, made his presence known and got up on the apron. Reed caught Atlas with a wild right hand and tried to whip him into the ropes. Ladd saw this and thought this was his chance. He started to pick up his right leg for a Big Boot on Atlas. Mr. USA reversed the move at the last minute and WHAM! Ladd nailed Reed with a Big Boot. While Ladd looked on in shock, Atlas rushed in for the pin. Ref Paul Morton began the count 1…. 2…. 3…. Tony Atlas has won the match and we have a new NWA Mid-American Champion. Ladd seems so angry but nobody knows why. He was the cause of this pin. He enters the ring and starts to kick and punch and chop at Reed. Reed his so warn out from the match, that he can’t fight back. Reed is in serious trouble as Ladd is going wild. Suddenly, Atlas attacks Ladd from behind. He is all over him. With a sudden surge of adrenaline, Atlas lifts the 6’9, 320 pounder over his head for a Press Slam. Ladd is down and out. Reed looks on and is stunned. Atlas walks over to Reed and extends his hand. Reed unsure what to do just looks at Atlas. Atlas leaves the hand there for what seems to be an uncomfortable amount of time. Reed…………… reaches out and………………. Shakes it! The crowd goes wild! · Tony Atlas wins by pin at 18:03 and we have a new NWA Mid-American Champion MATCH 4: PLOWBOY FRAZIER VS SIR OLIVER HUMPERDINK: _ (NO DQ) This match was sanctioned when Jerry Jarrett gave Plowboy Frazier the choice of wrestling any member of the House of Humperdink on this card. Frazier said he had no hard feelings against any member of the House of Humperdink, just Sir Oliver himself. He also asked for a No DQ stipulation as he felt Humperdink would just run away. The fans are excited to see Humperdink get what he deserves. Humperdink is first to the ring and he seems really scared. When Frazier enters the ring and the bell is rung, Humperdink tries to run and hide but there is little room. He slips out of the ring and continues to run away from Plowboy. Frazier tries to catch him but as you would expect, the 400+ pounder isn’t too quick. Humperdink begins to run up the aisle and it seems like there will be no match. Frazier is in hot pursuit when all of a sudden, the entire House of Humperdink comes at Frazier. The 4-1 beating he is getting is tough to watch. The House of Humperdink is barbaric in their abuse. After two minutes or so, they have destroyed Frazier and have him back in the ring. Humperdink, in another cocky move, places a boot on the belly of Frazier as Ref Paul Morton makes the three count. The fans realize that Humperdink has again out-smarted his opponent. Or has he….. As the House of Humperdink are laughing and having a grand old time, 2 huge, and I mean huge men with thick beards and overalls make their way to the ring. Each man must be 6’5 or bigger and weigh in excess of 350 pounds. They just step over the top rope and begin throwing wild haymakers and stomping the House of Humperdink. It didn’t matter that it was 4-2, these two quickly cleared the ring and they did most of it with a smile on their face. Next, they went to Plowboy and helped him to his feet. When he saw who it was, his face broke out in a smile from ear to ear. He seemed to forget all about his pain. We will have to find out who these two monster are. · Sir Oliver Humperdink wins by pin at 5:07. MATCH 5 ERNIE “THE BIG CAT” LADD VS THE DREAM MACHINE (Mask vs $10,000) This feud has been raging for a couple of months now. Ladd’s Army has been harassed by the Dream Machine for a while and by any means necessary. Ladd has placed a bounty of $10,000 on the mask which he claims hides the face of Troy Graham. CWA President, Jerry Jarrett has decided to let these two settle their own problem’s tonight. If Ladd wins, the mask comes off. If The Dream Machine wins, he gets Ladd’s $10,000. The fans are all over Ladd as he makes his way to the ring. As instructed, he hands a suitcase filled with the money over to ref Paul Morton. As the match gets under way, it is all Ladd. The Big Cat uses his 6’9 frame to chop The Dream Machine down to the ground. He locks in the Abdominal Stretch and really pulls Machine from one end to the other but he refuses to give up. As he has the move locked in, the crowd begins to make some commotion. Ladd has his back to the walkway to the locker room and since he doesn’t want to break the hold doesn’t know what is going on. Finally he can’t take it anymore. He throws the Dream Machine to the ground and turns around. He can’t believe his eyes. It is Troy Graham standing on the apron. Troy simply hops down to the floor as Ernie Ladd’s mouth is wide open in stunned disbelief. From behind, The Dream Machine simply rolls up Ernie Ladd. As the ref makes the 3 count, The Dream Machine jumps up and celebrates. He knows he is now $10,000 richer! Ref Paul Morton hands over the suitcase and Graham and The Dream Machine celebrate. The Dream Machine yells to Ladd as he is exiting the ring and Ladd turns around. The Dream Machine slowly unties his mask and as he pulls it off there is a gasp from the fans followed by a huge ovation. The fans are going wild as it is none other than “The Boogie Woogie Man” Jimmy Valiant! · The Dream Machine wins at 12:31. MATCH 6 AWA SOUTHERN CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH ROWDY RODDY PIPER WITH JR FOLEY VS SUPERSTAR BILL DUNDEE Once again, Foley, Piper, The flag of the British Commonwealth, the bag pipes, the kilt and the brashness of the entire Commonwealth has the fans really giving it to Piper and Foley on their way to the ring. As for the match, it is high intensity with many momentum changes. Foley is all over ref Jerry Calhoun but seemed to be staying out of the match for the most part. That is until both wrestlers were out on the floor. He was able to get the ref’s attention and this allowed Piper to grab a roll of quarters that he had in his trunks. Dundee was unable to block the loaded right hand from Piper and was out cold. Jerry Calhoun unsure of what had happened, had no choice but to make the 3 count once he turned his attention back to the match. · Roddy Piper wins by pin at 17:21 due to a foreign object MATCH 7: AWA SOUTHERN TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH The ROCK n ROLL EXPRESS VS THE SHEEPHERDERS with JR Foley The Rock N Roll Express, the AWA Southern Tag Team Champions enter the ring to KISS and “Rock N Roll All Night.” This is a return bout from last Monday night that saw the Rock n Roll Express survive. It also will not be the last time these teams meet as they are two of the most dominate tag teams in the world. The Sheepherders with their disgraceful manager, JR Foley make their way to the ring taunting each and every fan along the way. As the match starts, it is the RnR Express who takes control but it is short lived. Both teams are so talented on defense and in the art of tag team wrestling that there are many quick tags and reversals in the early going. The Sheepherders take control after a double team on Gibson that included many kicks and punches. After one more tag, Gibson was on the canvass after a massive head-butt from Butch Miller. From here, Miller tossed Gibson out of the ring where Foley was lurking. Morton rushed over to try and prevent any dirty tactics but this just turned out to be all 4 brawling out on the floor, as ref Paul Morton started the 10 count, it looked like both teams were going to be counted out but at the last second, Gibson and Miller got back in the ring. On his way back to his corner, Morton nailed Foley to the delight of the crowd. Inside the ring, both Sheepherders just went wild on Gibson. When the ref finally restores order it looked like Gibson was in huge trouble. Somehow he made it to his corner and tagged in Ricky Morton. Morton just cleared house, taking on both Sheepherders at the same time but as he whipped Miller into the ropes, Miller hooked his arms around the ropes which caused Morton to miss his dropkick. The Sheepherders now continued their mauling of the RnR Express. Morton is thrown to the floor where he seems to have injured his leg. The Sheepherders see this and Williams drapes the right leg across the ring stairs as Miller leaps from the apron across the dangling leg. Morton is screaming in pain. He can’t seem to put any pressure on it. Again, The Sheepherders hold the leg down as the others leaps from the apron. It appears that leg is badly injured. Williams rolls Morton back into the ring and Williams covers him. Ref Paul Morton makes the three count and we have new AWA Southern Tag Team Champions! More important, how badly is Ricky Morton injured? The fans are in shock at the brutality of the Sheepherders. · The Sheepherders win by pin at 25:25 and we have new AWA Southern Tag Champs! MATCH 8: NWA WORLD TITLE MATCH RIC FLAIR VS ANDRE THE GIANT This match was set by Jerry Jarrett in an attempt to watch Flair suffer and loose his belt all at once. Flair has recently said some pretty derogatory things about the CWA and in particular, Jerry Lawler. Jarrett thought making him fight Andre the Giant would be a way for revenge. As would be expected, Flair comes out to a huge chorus of boos while Andre gets all the love from the crowd. Flair tries his best to run and keep away from Andre but the squared circle just has no place for Flair to hide. This match really shows Flair and his best or worst depending on how you see things. He tries every dirty trick known to man but nothing seems to work against the Giant. The Giant hits big move after big move. He connects with a huge body slam and follows it up by sitting across the chest of Flair for a near pin fall. As Flair gets up, the Giant whips him into the turnbuckle. Flair goes upside down and flips over the ropes and out onto the floor. The Giant cautiously makes his way out of the ring but Flair catches him with a knee to the back of the leg which caused the Giant to fall to the ground. Flair simply kicks him repeatedly and then just jumps onto the feet of the Giant and refuses to let him up. The ref soon makes the 10 count as disqualifies both wrestlers. Flair jumps up, grabs his belt and heads for the hills. Flair has found a way to save his title after the 7’4 Giant gave him the beating of his life. · Andre the Giant wins by Count-out at 20:31. MATCH 9 CWA CHAMPIONSHIP FINAL: AUSTIN IDOL VS JERRY LAWLER This is the one for all the marbles. The fans are still upset at the recent turn by Austin Idol and are hoping their King can win the CWA Title tonight. The match is very physical but they are both staying within the confines of the rules. Idol is able to control this as he used his power advantage to back Lawler towards the corner and catch him with an open hand chop across the side of Lawler’s head. From here a bodyslam leads to an attempted piledriver which Lawler blocked. Idol continues to try to use his power moves but Lawler’s defensive skills allow him to block or reverse each and every one. Idol gets frustrated and doesn’t break cleaner in the corner. He knees Lawler in the mid-section and now the two ex-friends are in the middle of an all-out brawl. After a few wild haymakers, Idol is now in control. He is able to place the Las Vegas Leglock on Lawler. He uses the ropes to his advantage as he pulls up on them increasing the pressure on Lawler. Lawler refuses to submit but each time ref Jerry Calhoun asks Lawler if he wants to give, Idol grabs the ropes and really amps it up. Finally, Calhoun catches Idol and what he is doing. He demands Austin to break the hold but Idol refuses until the last possible second before he was to be disqualified. To Calhoun’s credit, he gets right in Idol’s face and begins to admonish him and pushes him back to the corner. Idol starts going right back at Calhoun and the two are really jarring back and forth. WHAM! Lawler had grabbed Idol and whipped him right into Calhoun who hits the canvas. Lawler now takes complete control and figures what is good for the goose is good for the gander. If Idol can break the rules so can the King. I guess he had this planned from all along and maybe tonight was not about winning a title but getting revenge. Lawler seems to be bending over as he approaches Idol this time. He grabs Lawler into a side headlock and POOOF…… Lawler has thrown a fire ball right into the face of Idol. Idol is on the ground screaming in pain. Lawler seems to be satisfied with his actions and starts to placate to the fans who are either too excited to talk or too scarred. Some are surprised at the actions of Lawler but they understand how he feels about Idol’s behavior of late. Ref Paul Morton rushes into the ring and quickly calls for the bell. Lawler has been disqualified but he doesn’t seem to care. This feud is about to set Memphis on FIRE! · Austin Idol retains his title after Lawler was disqualified.

Lance Russell: Before we return to the ring, I have a quick update on the tag team title situation. The Rock N Roll Express and The Bruise Brothers have been embedded in a violent feud over the last few months. A feud that has seen the title switch hands numerous times in all kinds of dangerous matches. The CWA has sanctioned a “Memphis World Series Match” between these two teams. It is a best of 7 match, where the first team to win 4 matches will be the Southern Tag Team Champions. The losers cannot have a title shot here in the CWA for ONE CALENDAR YEAR! Dave Brown: Wow, those are some stakes. Let’s get back to the ring. Lance Russell: You could say that again! OK Dave, Take it away. Dave Brown: "We're ready for our next match.

As Tony Anthony rushed into the ring to stop the illegal double teaming by Landell and Barr, The ref pushed Anthony back and as his back was turned, Barr hit King Cobra with a pair of brass knuckles which he threw into the corner. As Barr went to cover King Cobra, Anthony picked up the brass knuckles and hit Barr in the jaw. The ref saw this and DQ-ed Anthony and Cobra. Lance Russell: Well again you guys find some way to cheat and come out on top Buddy Landell: Cheat? What are you talking about Lance? You saw That Dirty White Boy pick up those knuckles and hit Jesse right in the jaw. Lance Russell: I guess you forgot who brought those brass knuckles to the ring? Buddy Landell: I am always so confused when I come here and try to see your perspective. Well anyway. Another week goes by and Jesse and I still hold on to our Championships. Lance Russell: Well that is actually why you two were asked to the desk after your match. I have an announcement for you and for all the wrestling fans here in CWA. Buddy Landell: What, has Jarrett come up with another so called challenger for either myself or Jesse? I mean who haven’t we beat? From Ken Raper, Abe Jacobs, Jose Poffo. I have beaten everyone this organization has put in front of me. Lance Russell: I think you have been hand picking your opponents. Buddly Landell: Some say PotAto, some say Potato. Didn’t I recently beat the two wrestlers who we beat here tonight? Lance Russell: Well yes, you did beat King Cobra and Tony Anthony and Jesse Barr has defeated Austin Idol but it always seems to be with some illegal shenanigans going on. Buddy Landell: Ok, Ok, we are never going to see to eye on this. What is your announcement? Lance Russell: Well you were right! There is a new contender for both your championships. Do you want to guess who? Buddy Landell: Spare me the pain and just tell me! Lance Russell: ok! Here it goes. This message is straight from Jerry Jarrett. “The CWA has long been a dues paying member of the NWA but we also have strong ties to the AWA. At this current time, we have 3 major championship belts. The AWA Southern Title, the Awa International Title and the NWA Mid-American Title. That seems unfair to the NWA that two of the titles contested here in the CWA are from the AWA, an organization we do not pay dues to. We are going to drop the AWA International Title from our promotion so that we do not play favorite to either the NWA or the AWA. Also, since the popularity of the CWA and this television show are growing so quickly, The AWA International Title is being replaced with a CWA Television Title.” seems to be becoming more coherent. Jesse Barr: Come on Russell, spill the whole story. Does that mean Landell is the new Television Champion? His title is just being renamed? Lance Russell: Well, no that is not true. As of right now, Buddy Landell is no longer a Champion. Jesse Barr: Well that is so unfair. It is Jarrett knowing the only way to take a title away from either one of us is to do something so underhanded. Lance Russell: Well wait a minute Jesse. Just let me finish. “While the International Championship will no longer be contested here in CWA, Buddy is receiving a title shot!” Buddy Landell: Lance! Spill this whole story now. I am getting sick and tired of your games! Lance Russell: Well right here, next week, Jesse, you will be defending your NWA Mid-American Title against Buddy Landell? Lance Russell: So I guess you two will have one week to figure out how to cheat each other out of a Championship! Ha-ha. And also next week, an 8 man single elimination tournament will begin to crown the New CWA Television Champion! We got to take a break. >> Lance Russell runs down the upcoming schedule for the CWA! October 4: Blytheville, Arkansas at the American Legion Areana October 5: Memphis, TN at the Mid-South Coliseum October 6: Evansville, IN at the Soldiers & Sailors Coliseum October 7: Louisville KY at the Louisville Gardens October 8: Nashville TN: at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds October 9: Tupelo, MS at the Sports Areana Come on out and see such stars as Jerry “The King Lawler, Austin Idol, Ernie Ladd, Buddy Landell, The Bruise Brothers and The Rock N Roll Express. Lance Russell: Before we get to the Main Event, another update of Jose “The Fortunate Son, Poffo’s attempt at 6034 sit-ups. It has come to end. He has been rushed to the hospital for apparent dehydration after completing one sit up. What a joke Jose Poffo has turned out to be. Well let’s get to the ring for our Main Event and what a Match it is going to be! Dave? Dave Brown: This match will be TV Time Remaining. In the ring to my right, accompanied by Sir Oliver Humperdink, The Japanese Assassins. Dave Brown: And making their way to the ring. The King, Jerry Lawler and the American Heartthrob, Austin Idol. And your referee is Jerry Calhoun. .> As the match gets under way, Sir Oliver Humperdink walks over to the microphone. Lance Russell: What do you want Humperdink? Humperdink: Shut up Pencil Nose! I demand equal time on this show. You had time to talk to Lawler and Idol earlier, you can darn well listen to me. Lance Russell: Well don’t you have enough to worry about in the ring. Humperdink: I said listen not talk. My wrestlers are warriors! Lawler and Idol have no idea what is coming. Remember, Warriors always have a plan and the best warrior execute it to perfection. How dare Lawler bring up Hiroshima to my guys? If he is not careful, October 3, 1985 will be “A day that will live in infamy.” Remember there is always a plan in THE HOUSE OF HUMPERDINK! Lance Russell: I hope you plan to go away Humperdink so we can get back to the match. Humperdink: As you wish Pencil Nose. Match #3: While Humperdink was talking with Lance Russell, Lawler and Idol had their way with the Japanese Assassins. Humperdink did not even slow down on his way to the ring. He crawled on the apron and nailed Lawler with his walking stick. He turns to the back and makes a throat slashing motion. While the ref has called for the bell giving the victory to Lawler and Idol by DQ, The entire House of Humperdink hits the ring. Sabu, Myers, Humperdink, Plowboy Frazier and The Japanese Assassins start to pummel Lawler and Idol. Lance Russell: Oh My God! We need help out here! Lance Russell: We only have about 1 minute left on television time left. We need help from the back. Wrestlers, Security. Anybody! Wildman Sabu and Duke Myers hold Idol down as Humperdink holds Lawler on the canvass as Plowboy Frazier hits him with Giant Splash after Giant Splash. As the credits start to roll, Humperdink pulls out a pair of scissors and hands them to Frazier. Frazier appears ready to cut Lawler’s hair but just in the nick of time, King Cobra and Tony Anthony hit the ring! Idol breaks free from Sabu and Myers. The Rock N Roll Express overwhelm the Japanese Assassins. The fan favorites regain control of the ring as The House of Humperdink makes a hasty retreat. Lance Russell: Let’s try to get order restored here. Get a doctor! Please, someone get a doctor!

    Great group of matches. Loved the description of the Garvin/Gang match. Martel and Santana as a team? Sounds great to me. A frustrated Raggin Bull, Buddy Rose with a handful of tights, Patera playing possum..... so real life I could picture it. Another great show!

    Memphis: CWA WRESTLING

    CWA WRESTLING: 2/11/1984: MSC STUDIOS (Memphis) SHOWN ON FOX AFFILATES THROUGHOUT TENNESSEE, ARKANSAS, KENTUCKY, AND PARTS OF MISSISSIPPI, MISSOURI AND INDIANA. SEGMENT #1: THIS WEEK IN THE CWA BY DAVE BROWN · MATCH OF THE WEEK: CWA TITLE MATCH: Austin Idol and Bruiser Brody wrestle to a 30 minute draw. Just as in any match that Brody is in, this was a backyard brawl from the beginning. Brody beat and beat Idol but could not just get the pin. The action was all over the arena and Idol stepped up to the challenge. To his credit, he had the 6’8 monster on the ropes a few times. He actually worked on the leg and put Brody in the Las Vegas Leglock but Brody broke the hold by reaching the ropes. After the match, the fans seemed to realize that their newest and biggest enemy, Austin Idol may be champion for a long time. · TAG TEAM OF THE WEEK: Rock n Roll Express The Rock n Roll Express had a huge title defense this week against Mr. Saito and Killer Khan. They hope this will propel them to another victory against the Sheepherders at St. Valentine’s Eve Massacre on Feb 13th at the Mid-South Coliseum. · WRESTLER OF THE WEEK: Jerry Lawler With a win over Butch Reed in singles competition and a pin on Austin Idol during a big tag match would have been enough to earn him this award by itself, but the CWA would also like to thank Lawler for taking rookies, Bam Bam Bigelow and Shane Douglas under his wing and teach them the ropes. · OTHER NOTES: The CWA officials have decided to update the CWA Rankings on a monthly basis instead of a weekly basis. Fans can look forward to the next rankings during the first week of March. COMMERCIAL BREAK WITH PROMO FOR UPCOMING SHOWS SEGMENT #2 MATCH: Plowboy Frazier vs David Johnson Frazier easily wins this squash match with a Big Splash at 2:47. After the match Frazier goes to the interview table where Lance Russell asks him about his upcoming match with Sir Oliver Humperdink. Frazier says that it is a dream come true. He can’t wait to get his hands on Humperdink who has been causing so much trouble in the CWA for so long. Russell asks Frazier why he wanted a no DQ match and isn’t he afraid that this will allow the rest of the House of Humperdink to get involved. Frazier simply smiles and says “No.” The entire House of Humperdink comes up from behind and Humperdink grabs the microphone from Frazier. Humperdink starts yelling at Frazier and calling him a dumb hillbilly and that if he isn’t afraid of what will happen in the Mid-South Coliseum on Monday, and that right now will be an eye opener. Humperdink demands that Buzz Sawyer, Hercules Hernandez and Lord Humongous attack Frazier. They happily oblige and really give it too Frazier. Wrestlers rush from the back but the damage may already have been done. Humperdink warns Plowboy that if he dares to show up on Monday night, that it will be more of the same. He again tells Frazier how dumb he is for putting in a new DQ stipulation and that he is in for the beating of his life. COMMERCIAL BREAK WITH PROMO FOR UPCOMING SHOWS SEGMENT #3: MATCH: Tony Atlas, The Dream Machine and Sweet Brown Sugar vs The Nightmares and Ken Raper The match showcases all the talent of the fan favorites. Sweet Brown Sugar’s dropkicks, the dancing and jiving of the Dream Machine and the power of Tony Atlas. The match came to an end after each man had his way with one of the opponents and The Dream Machine finally put Nightmare #1 out of his misery with a Gorilla Press Slam. The match lasted 5:01. The victors went to the interview desk where Lance Russell asked the Dream Machine and Tony Atlas about their upcoming matches at the Mid-South Coliseum. Tony Atlas said he couldn’t wait to get Hacksaw Reed in the ring again. He admitted that the two have had some great battles of late but that he felt really good about his chances at becoming the next NWA Mid-American Champ. The Dream Machine kind of smiled and said that he was already thinking of the ways to spend Ernie Ladd’s $10,000. This brought Ernie Ladd out and he was carrying a banner that read “Promises, Promises. He then proceeded to promise the people of the CWA that this fake was truly Troy Graham and that Graham and Jarrett were in cahoots and that is why the CWA took Graham out of the tag match with Sweet Brown Sugar for the NWA Mid-American Titles and that Graham should be ashamed of himself for quitting on his partner. Things got a little hot but refs came out and separated Ladd and the Dream Machine. Lance Russell once again said how St. Valentine’s Eve Massacre was going to be one hot ticket in the city of Memphis. COMMERCIAL BREAK WITH PROMO FOR UPCOMING SHOWS SEGMENT #4: Match: The Youngbloods vs The Claw Masters This is some match for TV. Mark and Jay have not been together in a while but they are getting ready for their title bout against Dutch Mantel and Bobby Jaggers at the Mid-South Coliseum. The Claw Masters, Baron Von Raschke and The Spoiler have yet to lose in the CWA. Just before the bell sounded, The Kansas Jayhawks hit the ring, cowboy hats, tobacco and of course their bull whips. The Youngbloods, also in full Native American gear had their Indian Straps with them. Neither team backed down and a real donnybrook ensued. At the end of it, the Youngbloods owned the ring after Mark hit a fall down back body drop on Jaggers and his brother did the same to Dirty Dutch. The Indians went for their straps but the Kansas Jayhawks beat a hasty retreat. Jay Youngblood and Mark Youngblood went to the interview table where they were rally hot and bothered. They did not even wait for Lance to ask a question they both started yelling how they were not afraid of the Jayhawks and how dirty they both were. They reminded the fans about the last match against the Jawkawks where they hanged Mark and Jules Strongbow and how they intentionally tried to injure them. Mark promise how this Monday was going to be different and how it would be the Jawhawks carried out on a stretcher as he as his brother raise the NWA Mid-American Tag Titles. COMMERCIAL BREAK WITH PROMO FOR UPCOMING SHOWS SEGMENT #5: Match: CWA Champion Roddy Piper with Jr Foley vs Wendell Cooley Piper and Foley do their best to anger the audience. From the Bag Pipes to the kilt to the flag of the British Commonwealth, they show the USA no respect. As far as the match goes, Piper teaches Cooley that he is not ready for this type of action. Using ever trick in the book, Piper has Cooley so turned around, he doesn’t know what way is up. After a piledriver, there is no more up and a quick count of three is made. Piper and Foley make their way to Lance Russell where Russell asks them about the upcoming match with “Superstar” Dundee at the Coliseum. Piper and Foley in all their arrogance don’t seem to understand Jerry Jarrett’s logic in pitting such a great wrestler and champion like Piper in a gimmick match against a Midget! Piper says that he just doesn’t get America’s lack of class and why they must make fun of the “little people.” This brings out Dundee who goes right after Piper. Piper says that he was taught and an early age not to be a bully and that a grown man should not attack a second grader. Dundee is not enraged and attacks Piper. This only gives Foley a chance to clobber him with the flagpole. In just under a minute, Dundee is a bloody mess as Foley and Piper walk off. Lawler rushes out to help his friend but it was just too late to do anything. COMMERCIAL BREAK WITH PROMO FOR UPCOMING SHOWS Segment #6 Jerry Lawler is at the interview desk and he is hot. He is all over Roddy Piper and JR Foley. He challenges then to any type of match they want. Lance Russell tries to bring him to talk about his upcoming match with Austin Idol but he storms off in search of Piper. Match: Ft. Bragg Brotherhood, PVT. Kernodle and CPL. Kirchner vs Robert Reed and Ken Raper The Brotherhood give the fans a Patriotic entrance as the way the flag of the U.S. on their way to the ring. The crowd is really connecting with this team lately. The match was pretty much a squash and ended when Pvt. Kernodle connected with a neckbreaker on Ken Raper at 4:02. As soon as the match ended, Mr. Saito and Killer Khan along with their manager, Tojo Yamamoto hit the ring. Khan quickly sprayed the green mist into the eyes of Kernodle. This gave Mr. Saito and Yamamoto time to work over Kirchner. As The Brotherhood gets medical attention in the ring, the Shogunate make a quick trip to the interview desk. Yamamoto reminds Mis-tah Russell that he warned the Bootherhood to not get in the way of his men. That Kornodtle and Kewschner are just stuuupid Ahhmericans and if they dare to how up on Monday night, it will be more of the same. COMMERCIAL PLAYS FOR JERRY LAWLER’S NEW RESTAURANT SEGMENT #7 The Brotherhood are at the interview desk. Kernodle is trying to wash his eyes out with water, while Kirchner is struggling to stand after the beating by Yamamoto and his men. Pvt. Kernodle is asking that Jerry Jarrett please come out to the desk. He gets his wish and Jarrett asks him what he wants. Kernodle, obviously, is very upset at the recent actions of the Shogunate. He says there is no way to get a fair match. Yamamoto will not let that happen and constantly interferes in matches. Kirchner reminds Jarrett that twice in recent weeks, Tojo has donned the wrestling tights and gotten into the ring. The Brotherhood asks that Jarrett changes the match between the Brotherhood and Khan and Mr. Saito on Monday night to a 6 man tag team event. Jarrett asks who their partner would be. The Brotherhood says they would rather not say. Jarrett seems to ponder this proposal for a moment and then agrees. The Brotherhood is excited and Lance Russell now announces the match on Monday as Killer Khan, Mr. Saito and Tojo Yamamoto vs The Ft Bragg Brotherhood and a mystery partner. Match: Humperdink Challenge: Buzz Sawyer, Hercules Hernandez and Lord Humongous vs The Rookies, Bam Bam Bigelow, Shane Douglas and Steve Simpson. (If the rookies win, they get $15,000) While the crowd had some energy for this match and some hope as they have watched the steady improvement of these young wrestlers, they were quickly in awe of the savageness of the House of Humperdink. They completely man handled these rookies. Mercifully, the match ended after a huge Frog Splash by Sawyer at just 3:02. All three rookies looked completely worn out and the House of Humperdink seemed like caged animals that wanted to eat more raw meat. COMMERCIAL BREAK WITH PROMO FOR UPCOMING SHOWS SEGMENT 8: Lance Russell announces to the fans that they are about to see a taped message from Ric Flair who is to meet Andre the Giant at St. Valentine’s Eve Massacre. Flair goes off on Jarrett for making this match and how it is unfair and ridiculous that he has to face the Giant. He lets the fans know that he is not backing down and he has many tricks up his sleeve and how the Giant is going down. Lance Russell says that Flair doesn’t seem to be as cocky at he normally is and that maybe Flair has meet his match. Austin Idol makes his way to the desk and starts to insult Jerry Lawler. Idol keeps calling him Queen Lawler and that he has lost his focus and is just worrying about his new restaurant. He calls Lawler nothing but a short order cook. Lawler rushes the desk and starts brawling with Idol. The Sheepherders and Piper rush to Idol’s aid and try hang him up by his neck to the ring post. The crowd gives a roar as a bandaged Dundee and the Rock n Roll Express hit the ring. A brawl to end all brawls ensues. It is like Monday has come early. Dundee has paired off with Piper, The Sheepherders are all over the Rock n Roll Express and Lawler and Idol are rolling around on the floor. Total Chaos ensues. Rivals are beating rivals. Friends are aiding friends. Lance Russell is heard saying, “All roads lead to the Mid-South Coliseum and St. Valentines Eve Massacre on February 13th. The Credits roll while the chaos continues. The screen fades to black.

    Memphis: CWA WRESTLING

    CWA WRESTLING: NASHVILLLE, TENNESSEE FROM TENNESSEE STATE FAIRGROUNDS WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 1984 MATCH #1: Shane Douglas defeats Robert Reed by pin after a powerslam at 11:56. MATCH #2: The Claw masters, Baron Von Raschke and The Spoiler defeat The Nightmares when Von Raschke locked in the Brain Claw on Nightmare #2 at 7:42. The Claw Masters remain undefeated in the CWA MATCH #3: The House of Humperdink, Lord Humongous, Buzz Sawyer and Hercules Hernandez defeat Plowboy Frazier, Steve Simpson and Bam Bam Bigelow in 6 man tag action when Hercules Hernandez locked in the Backbreaker Rack on Steve Simpson which caused him to tap out. The fans were disappointed at how one-sided this match was as they were hoping that Frazier could enact some revenge on Humperdink. The match was so one –sided that Humperdink didn’t even bother to get involved but he was also smart enough to keep his distance from Frazier. Those two will meet in the Mid-South Coliseum on Feb 13th. MATCH #4: Killer Khan and Tojo Yamamoto defeated CPL. Kirchner at 8:21 after Yamamoto distracted the ref and Khan sprayed the Asian Green Mist into the eyes of Kirchner and then followed that up with a Cobra Clutch which put the lights out on Kirchner. Khan refused to wake up Kirchner which in the CWA he is responsible to do. His lead to Private Kernodle rushing the ring but this might have been a mistake. Yamamoto and Khan together really laid the boot to Kernodle. This feud is really heating up! Match #5: The Sheepherders with JR Foley defeated The Dream Machine and Sweet Brown Sugar after an all-out war. The Dream Machine almost had the victory after a bionic elbow to Luke Williams but Foley jumped up on the apron which delayed the count by the ref. After this, The Sheepherders turned violent and used everything at ringside to punish both Dream Machine and Sweet Brown Sugar. The end came when Williams used Butch Miller’s head as a battering ram on the already bloodies Sugar at 21:02. MATCH #6: AWA SOUTHERN TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP BOUT The Rock n Roll Express successfully defended their titles against Ernie Ladd and Porkchop Cash at 18:32. Ladd and Cash tried to make this a brawl but the Express were a little too quick and a little too smart to let that happen. The end actually came when Ricky Morton pretended to be more hurt than he was while being held by Cash. Ladd came off the ropes and went for a Big Boot by Morton broke free at the last second and Ladd nailed his own partner. Gibson hit he ropes and popped Ladd with a dropkick preventing him from making the save as the ref counted 1…2…3… on Porkchop Cash. After the match Ladd seemed frustrated at Cash. MATCH #7: NWA MID AMERICAN TITLE MATCH: Hacksaw Butch Reed vs Jerry “The King” Lawler At first, it looked like the King was going to be the new champ as he was able to neutralize Reed’s power advantage with some very good technical moves. He was wearing down Reed but went for his top rope fist drop too quickly and Reed rolled out the way. Reed was first to his feet and looked ready to take control but Ernie Ladd hit the ring and attacked Lawler. As the ref called for the bell to DQ Reed, Reed actually pulled Ladd off of Lawler and started to yell at him, asking what was he doing. The house mic picked up Ladd saying that Reed should thank him as he just saved him his belt. Reed threw his hands up and walked out of the ring. By this time, Lawler had regrouped and put a beating on Ladd. All to the delight of the fans. The match lasted 20:45. MATCH 8: AWA SOUTHERN TITLE MATCH: Roddy Piper with JR Foley vs Tony Atlas Surprisingly this match was very one-sided. Tony Atlas dominated the match from the opening bell to the last moment. He was able to land some major moves and seemed to have the match won after a Gorilla Press Slam but Foley picked up Piper’s leg and placed it across the bottom rope. Atlas saw this and stood up and went to the ropes and began shouting at Foley. The ref tried to back up Foley and this allowed Piper a chance recover and hit Piper with a low blow. He quickly followed that up with a small package and with a grab of the tights, got the three count. MATCH 9: CWA HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: Austin Idol vs Superstar Dundee This match was a brawl from the get go. After hitting a piledriver, it looked like Dundee was going to capture the title but somehow Idol kicked out at 2 3/4. The action spilled to the outside of the ring where Idol scooped up Dundee and dropped him across the ring barrier. Dundee was busted open and unable to beat the 10 count back into the ring. Idol retained his belt by his count out victory. This did not stop Idol from leaving the ring and continuing to work over Dundee. Jerry Lawler rushed down and attacked Idol. Lawler eat him from pillar to post and connected with about 10 huge haymakers. Idol was able to slip out and beat a hasty retreat. To the approval of the crowd, the night ended with Lawler and a shaken Dundee in control of the ring. CWA WRESTLING: CHATTANOOGA, TENNESSEE FROM UTC ARENA THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 1984 MATCH #1: Bam Bam Bigelow defeats Ken Raper by pin after a powerslam at 4:06. MATCH #2: Brett Wayne defeats Shane Douglas after connecting with a top rope elbow drop on the chin of Douglas at 6:02. This was almost Douglas’s biggest win to date after he connected with big body slam but Wayne kicked out after a 2 count. MATCH #3: The Claw Masters, Baron Von Raschke and The Spoiler, defeat Wendell Cooley and Tommy Gilbert after The Spoiler pinned Gilbert while applying a stomach claw at 6:12. The Claw Masters remain undefeated. MATCH #4: Mr. Saito Killer and Tojo Yamamoto defeated PVT. Kernodle at 12:21 after Saito connected with a Saito Suplex. These is the second night in a row that a member of the Shogunate defeated a member of the Ft. Bragg Brotherhood. We will have to wait and see what happens when these two teams square off at the Mid-South Coliseum on Feb 13th. Match #5: Buzz Sawyer and Hercules Hernandez with Sir Oliver Humperdink defeat Plowboy Frazier and Steve Simpson after Mad Dog Sawyer hit a frog splash on Steve Simpson which resulted in the pin at 14:12. The House of Humperdink used their viciousness on the rookie and really kept him from tagging in Frazier at all. Again, Humperdink kept his distance from Frazier. Sawyer and Hercules were like ravaged animals tonight as they are continuing their push for a tag title! MATCH #6: 6 MAN TAG BOUT Ernie Ladd, Butch Reed and Porkchop Cash vs Sweet Brown Sugar, Tony Atlas and the Dream Machine This match was a brawl from beginning to end. The fans were excited when Atlas was able to gain control on Reed and they went wild when The Dream Machine began to dance and gyrate and hit Ladd with bionic elbow after bionic elbow. Unfortunately the bout ended in the favor a Ladd’s Army when Porkchop Cash connected with a powerslam on Sweet Brown Sugar. After the match, Ladd ordered his “army” members to attack The Dream Machine and take off his mask but Reed refused to follow his orders and left the ring. Ladd and Cash thought better of going 3-2 against their opponents so nothing else came of this. MATCH #7: 6 MAN TAG TEAM MATCH The Rock n Roll Express and Superstar Dundee vs The Sheepherders and Roddy Piper with JR Foley Again local promoter has pitted two sets of enemies against each other in this 6 man tag match. This was a wild one. Butch Williams threw Robert Gibson into ref Paul Morton which left him down and out for quite some time. Foley so this as his chance to get in the ring. It appeared that he was about to kick Bill Dundee with a low blow but to the delight of the fans, The RnR Express caught him with one of their famous double dropkicks. Unfortunately while this was going on, Dundee did not see Piper come up from behind him. He reached into his kilt, pulled out some type of foreign object and wham! Knocked Dundee out cold. While this was going, the Sheepherders and The Express had tumbles out to floor and were involved in an all-out brawl. This made the cover easy for Piper. Foley scrambled to his feet, aided the ref and watched the 3 count. MATCH 8: CWA HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: Austin Idol vs “The King” Jerry Lawler The fans were loving this main event, especially as Lawler was in complete control in the early going. For the second match in a row, the ref was knocked down. This time, Idol rammed into him on purpose because he was in serious trouble. Lawler made the mistake of trying to help ref Jerry Calhoun. Idol pulled a pair of brass knuckles out of his pocket and swung at Lawler. Lawler, kicked Idol in the mid- section and threw a wild right hand that connected with Idols head causing the brass knuckles to go flying. Lawler saw this and put them on his hand. Calhoun was now on his feet and saw Idol down and Lawler with the brass knuckles. He put the two together in his head and disqualified Lawler. Lawler, upset at already being disqualified, picked Idol up and hit him square in the jaw with the illegal objects. To the delight of the crown, Idol was out cold but he did retain his title. CWA WRESTLING: JACKSON, TENNESSEE FROM THE OMAN ARENA FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 1984 MATCH #1: Steve Simpson defeats Robert Reed with the Johannesburg Sleeper at 4:06. MATCH #2: Lord Humongous with Sir Oliver Humperdink defeats Ted Allen after an AX SMASH at 3:02. MATCH #3: The Claw Masters, Baron Von Raschke and The Spoiler, defeat Ken Raper and David Johnson after Von Raschke caught Johnson with the Brain Claw at 5:12. The Claw Masters remain undefeated. MATCH #4: Buzz Sawyer and Hercules Hernandez with Sir Oliver Humperdink defeat Bam Bam Bigelow and Shane Douglas after Sawyer hit Bigelow with a top rope Frog Splash at 6:34. The rookies continue to improve but the House of Humperdink is just too big a jump. Match #5: The Shogunate, Killer Khan, Mr. Saito and Tojo Yamamoto defeat the Ft Bragg Brotherhood, Pvt. Kernodle and Cpl. Kirchner, and Brett Wayne when Mr. Saito connected with a Saito Suplex on Brett Wayne at 17:32. This was a war as the Shogunate and The Brotherhood have been after each other for months now. Yamamoto never entered the ring but did damage from the outside by chopping or kicking anyone who got close enough. When this was over, it took CWA officials and wrestlers to come to the ring and break up the brawl. MATCH #6: Ernie Ladd and Porkchop Cash vs Sweet Brown Sugar, and the Dream Machine Ladd and Cash tried to use their power advantage on Sweet Brown Sugar but he dazzled them with his speed and athleticism. He ducked under a Big Boot from Ladd and came off the rope with a huge drop kick. He quickly tagged in The Dream Machine who shimmied and danced his way to Ladd and that hit him with a huge Bionic Elbow. Sweet Brown Sugar rushed over and drop kicked Cash off the apron before he could make the save. To the delight of the fans, The Dream Machine pinned Ladd for the three count. Ladd was furious and claimed that Dream Machine’s elbow pad was loaded. MATCH #7: 8 MAN TAG TEAM MATCH The Rock n Roll Express, Jerry Lawler and Superstar Dundee vs The Sheepherders, Austin Idol and Roddy Piper with JR Foley It seems that this match pitted all the current feuds of the CWA into one match. As could be expected there was not a lot of technical wrestling going on. Ref Paul Morton seemed to lose control as there was fighting all over the arena. The end came when Lawler caught Idol with a top rope fist diving fist drop at 27:45. This was the first time Lawler has pinned Idol since he became champ. He hopes his victory carries over to the title match on Feb 13th. MATCH 8: NWA Mid-American Title Bout: Hacksaw Butch Reed vs Tony Atlas These two continue their feud all over the CWA. This match was the same as the others. Huge momentum swings due to the power of these wrestlers. When either one of these two muscle freaks hits a big move, the other is down for a while. Both mem had many chances to win this match but it ended with a 30 minute time draw. While these two men really don’t like each other, they do respect each other. This is Reed’s first contest in a while where Ladd has not interfered and cost him a victory.

    Great show. Love how you get the new angles going right after a major show. Gino and Tully seem to have a lot going on.... Freebirds and Dibiase is a lot for two people to deal with. This should be fun to watch unfold. Is JYD really gone or will DiBiase need him for Tully/Gino.... wrestling suspense is always awesome. T.A. as a fill in for II.... interesting angle to get the youth of your roster going full tilt. Good show.

    Memphis: CWA WRESTLING

    CWA WRESTLING: MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE FROM THE MID-SOUTH COLISEUM: MONDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 1984 MATCH #1: Lord Humongous with Sir Oliver Humperdink defeats Wendell Cooley and Ted Allen in a handicap match at 5:41 after he totally dominated the men and nailed them both with an AX SMASH. After the pin, Humongous continued the attack until Plowboy Frazier rushed to the ring to aid Cooley and Allen. It did not make any difference to Humongous who now just beat the big 400+ pounder and hit him with an AX SMASH also. This feud between Frazier and The House of Humperdink may be too much for Frazier. The fans hope he is not too hurt as he is to wrestle later in the evening. MATCH #2: Hercules Hernandez and Buzz Sawyer with Sir Oliver Humperdink defeat Bam Bam Bigelow and Shane Douglas. The rookies just did not have enough experience for a match against these two animals. The match ended when Hernandez caught Shane Douglas in the Backbreaker Rack at 4:02. The fans seemed to be surprised at how one sided this match was. They are forgetting how new Bigelow and Douglas are to this sport. MATCH #3: The Ft Bragg Brotherhood (PVT. Kernodle and CPL. Kirchner) defeated the CLAW MASTERS (Baron Von Raschke and The Spoiler) at 16:02 when Kirchner connected a swinging neck-breaker on the Spoiler. Baron and Kernodle were brawling on the floor at the time and this prevented any save for the Claw Masters. Lucky for the Brotherhood, neither Raschke nor The Spoiler was able to catch their opponents in the dreaded claw hold! MATCH #4: AWA SOUTHERN TAG TEAM MATCH The Rock n Roll Express defeated The Shogunate (Killer Khan and Mr. Saito with Tojo Yamamoto) at 24:17. With Tojo distracting the ref, Killer Khan spit the Asian Green Mist into the eyes of Robert Gibson. When Gibson began to flail around, Morton actually tagged himself in. Khan did not realize this which allowed Morton to roll him up in a small package for the victory. The Shogunate tried to attack 3 on 2 but the Rock n Roll Express made a hasty retreat from the ring with the victory and their championship. Match #5: Sweet Brown Sugar, The Dream Machine and Tony Atlas defeated Porkchop Cash, Ernie Ladd and Hacksaw Reed by dq at 29:21 in a 6 man tag elimination match. Each time a member of the match was pinned or submitted, they were out of the match and forced to leave ringside. The first person eliminated was Sweet Brown Sugar after Hacksaw Reed nailed him with a Double Underhook Suplex. Reed’s next victim was The Dream Machine who he nailed with a Gorilla Press Slam. Ladd seemed upset that Reed went for the pin instead of trying to get the mask off the Dream Machine. Atlas entered the ring at a huge 3-1 disadvantage but he was able to force a submission out of Porkchop Cash with a Bearhug. Next, he eliminated Ladd after another submission. It was down to Atlas and Reed but Atlas was totally spent. Reed seemed to be in control until Ladd came back to the ring. Just as Reed had Atlas up for the Gorilla Press Slam and most likely the pin, Ladd entered the ring and started hitting Atlas with overhand chop after overhand chop. The ref immediately called for the bell and gave the victory to Sugar, Dream Machine and Atlas. Ladd looked really angry at Ladd but Ladd seemed content to put the boots to Atlas. Reed just shook his head and left the ring. MATCH #6: The Sheepherders and Roddy Piper with JR Foley defeat Jerry Lawler, Bill Dundee and Plowboy Frazier in 28:34 when Foley got involved and hit Frazier over the head with the flag pole used to carry the British Commonwealth flag. This happened after some really dirty double teaming tactics by Piper and The Sheepherders. Lawler and Dundee attempted to rush in to help their partner and this is when Foley did the dirty deed. The fans have really had enough of Foley, Piper and Sheepherders who always seem to bend the rules just enough to win. MATCH #7: CWA TITLE MATCH: Austin Idol and Bruiser Brody wrestle to a 30 minute draw. Just as in any match that Brody is in, this was a backyard brawl from the beginning. Brody beat and beat Idol but could not just get the pin. The action was all over the arena and Idol stepped up to the challenge. To his credit, he had the 6’8 monster on the ropes a few times. He actually worked on the leg and put Brody in the Las Vegas Leglock but Brody broke the hold by reaching the ropes. After the match, the fans seemed to realize that their newest and biggest enemy, Austin Idol may be champion for a long time.

    Loved the show. Good move given the title back to Hogan for your promotion but sad Hansen had to lose. In real life, Hansen is one dude who could do it all! These new 10 man tag matches are catching on in a lot of promotions and you used yours really well to further your feuds. Road Warriors vs Samoans is top notch!
