  1. Great work! Love the lineup from start to finish. The tag match was tremendous. Armstrong vs Armstrong. The Nightmares being Nightmares and The Bodies just too arrogant. Also love the format of the match. Not sure how anyone could reject the services of Baby Doll but glad to see Wildfire still on top. Maybe Rich and Nicola Roberts came to some behind the scenes agreement. The roster you have for that smaller card is going to be great real soon. Marty Jannetty, Shawn Michaels, Tracy Smothers, The Rock n Roll RPM's and the Assassins. That's some great 1980's names!

    Dirt Sheets

    It seems that over a dozen people were arrested at the Mid-South Coliseum this past Monday after they began to riot after Austin Idol apparently turned on Jerry Lawler and took the aid of NWA Champion Ric Flair in order to capture the first ever Continental Wrestling Association Championship. The fans could not believe their eyes as Flair hit Lawler over the head with a champagne bottle that Idol had been carrying around for weeks. Memphis fans have seen these two feud with each other in the past at it is not pretty. When asked, Jerry Jarrett, President of the CWA, didn't seem to care much. Most likely because it is good for business. It also seems that Jarrett is after two old timers in Baron Von Raschke and The Spoiler. What will this company do with 2 more heels? Many are questioning Jarrett's recent expansion into Arkansas and Mississippi. They believe he is getting away from his roots in places like Memphis, Nashville, Louisville and Evansville. He might be even more money hungry then we even thought and sees the recent expansion of Bill Watts into Texas and the wonderful television show on Christmas Night on WTBS called Superclash as a sign of the times and is looking not be left behind by the new breed of promoting gurus that seem to be emerging right before our eyes. Many believe that Ernie Ladd has lost his focus. In his own warped way, people could understand his racist rhetoric and his goal. Now he seems completely obsessed with taking the mask off The Dream Machine. This lead to him attacking The Dream Machine before their match ever got under way and also may have contributed to him hitting Butch Reed instead of Jerry Lawler the other night. His actions caused Reed a chance to win the CWA Title Tournament.

    Stampede Wrestling

    No need to ever apologize. This is a hobby for all of us with some many other things being much more important on life. Hope all is ok and welcome back. Love your roster and looking forward to seeing who gets to the top. Ox Baker with the Heart Punch: Classic! The Harts vs The Kiniskis: It doesn't get bigger than those families in this sport. One recommendation. If you could re-introduce your tag teams when you use them. I forget who The Foreign Legion of Doom was because there are so many different promotions that I am trying to read about. This is something I need to remember also as I am guilty to. Again, welcome back!

    Great use of the roster. A stable of Russians will always be great heels. Always good to let the fans have something to get them to come back. A Russian loss and Rude in the main event! is all anyone could ask! West Texas is in good hands. Mid-South is on the rise!

    Memphis: CWA WRESTLING

    CWA WRESTLING: MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE FROM THE MID-SOUTH COLISEUM: MONDAY, JANUARY 16, 1984 NIGHT OF DREAMS IN HONOR OF THE FIRST MLK JR. DAY MATCH #1: DON KERNODLE & MYSTERY PARTNER VS KILLER KHAN & MR. SAITO with Tojo Yamamoto PVT. Don Kernodle comes to the ring first with the man who jumped into the ring from the stands last Saturday night on TV when he was attacked by Saito and Khan. The ring announcers introduces him as Cpl. Kirchner from Ft. Bragg, North Carolina weighing in at 263 pounds. Tojo Yamamoto leads his men to the ring and Khan and Saito are really giving it to the fans at ringside. As for the match, it is really back and forth but Tojo seems to really be involved every time the action spills out onto the floor. The match turned after a football tackle by Cpl. Kirchner on Mr. Saito. He followed that up with a Corporal Clutch and it looked like Saito was going to submit. Yamamoto got up on the apron and distracted the ref which allowed Khan to come in and catch Kirchner with the Asian Green Mist to the eyes. Khan rushed across and knocked Kernodle off the apron. Saito now alert caught Kirchner in a Saito Suplex and that was all she wrote. · The Shogunate defeated The FT. Bragg Brothers in Arms by pin at 11:43. MATCH #2 BRUSIER BRODY & STAN HANSEN VS HERCULES HERNANDEZ & BUZZ SAWYER with SIR OLIVER HUMPERDINK The team of Brody and Hansen was recently formed down in Florida and they are a team to be reckon with as you could imagine. Humperdink also has a really good team under his wing in Sawyer and Hernandez. The fans are trusting Brody in that this is the first time that Hansen has come into Memphis as a fan favorite. Humperdink has Mad Dog Buzz Sawyer chained to a dog collar and has him on a short leash while Hernandez has a huge chain wrapped around his huge neck and really looks intimidating. The House of Humperdink is undefeated since it was redone about a month ago. This match is wild and chaotic from the start as you would expect. All men have connected on some really powerful moves. Brody hit a few mauling knee smashes but was never able to get a pin. Hansen was an absolute Wildman as he connected a lariat that almost took Sawyer’s head off. On the other side, Sawyer controlled Brody for a period of time and actually came of the top rope and connected with a huge frog splash but Hansen was able to break up the pin. The most impressive move of the night was when Hernandez actually got the 6’8 Brody up and slammed him down with an earth shattering Powerbomb. By the end, both teams were beaten, bruised and bloodied but nobody could can a pin. This match ended with all 4 men brawling inside the ring as the 20 minute time limit came to an end. What a match. · Brody & Hansen vs The House of Humperdink ends in a time limit draw. MATCH #3 Jerry Lawler vs Butch Reed: SEMI-FINAL FOR THE CWA CHAMPIONSHIP What a matchup. Lawler, The current AWA Southern Heavyweight Champion vs Reed, The NWA Mid-American Champion who is also undefeated since coming to the CWA in November. The fans are a little nervous as they hope their King can become the first CWA Champion but they have never witnessed someone as dominate as Hacksaw Reed. Reed is accompanied to the ring by Ernie Ladd who really has no business being out there. Lawler is all over ref Paul Morton but he seems intimidated by Ladd and does nothing about it. As for the match, it is a well fought battle that was back and forth. Lawler connected with his patented fist drop and had Reed locked in a sleeper but Reed battled back. He came close to a victory after a Gorilla Press Slam but Lawler was able to get a foot on the rope. After an attempted Irish Whip by Reed, Lawler slammed into the ref knocking him to the floor. With the ref on the ground and in trouble, Ladd entered the ring and connected with a Big Boot to Lawler’s head. Ladd demanded that Reed hold Lawler for one more boot. This time he came off the ropes and at the last second Lawler broke free from Reed. Ladd hit Reed with the Big Boot just as the ref came to. Lawler covered Reed for the 1…2…3. WOW, Lawler advances to the final as Reed suffers his first loss in the CWA. As he gets to his feet, you can see he is obviously upset at Ernie Ladd. Ladd just shakes his head as the two head back to the locker room. The crowd loves that their hero is still in the tournament. · Jerry Lawler defeats Butch Reed by pin after interference by Ladd at 18:03. MATCH 4: AUSTIN IDOL VS LORD HUMONGOUS with SIR OLIVER HUMPERDINK From the beginning to the end of this match, the crowd was on edge. While the really wanted Idol to win, they were concerned what would happen if he did. Lawler and Idol have been on the same page for a while but that has not always been the case here in the CWA. Could a match for the CWA Title between the two rupture this friendship? As the match went on, it did not seem as if that would ever be a concern. Humongous was tossing Idol around like a rag doll. From pillar to post, it was all Humongous. He connected on three AX Smashes but each time Idol was able to barely kick out. Humperdink was up on the apron after the third one yelling at Ref Paul Morton to count quicker. Morton went to admonish him and Humongous left Idol on the mat to go get the ref away from Humperdink. Somehow, Idol made it to his feet and rushed into the back of Humperdink pushing him into the ropes. Idol ducked down and caught Humongous with a surprise roll up. Morton quickly began the count and yes that was all it took. A quick roll up and a 3 count puts Idol into the finals. Humperdink and Humongous are shocked as Idol rushes away before they can attack. The crowd is both ecstatic and nervous for the Championship. · Idol pins Lord Humongous at 13:26. MATCH 5 ERNIE “THE BIG CAT” LADD VS THE DREAM MACHINE This match is all about Ladd trying to take the mask off the Dream Machine and prove to everyone that the man who has been harassing his Army is none other than Troy Graham. It will also save Ladd $10,000 if he could do it himself as he has put a bounty on the mask. With Ladd already in the ring, The Dream Machine was making his way down the aisle to a huge ovation. Ladd angry, left the ring and meet him half way. The brawl was on. Both man rammed each other into barricades, used chairs and threw wild haymakers. The problem for Ladd was that after every big move, including his signature move, The Big Boot, he wasted so much energy with the mask. With both men beaten and bruised after about 5 minutes, CWA officials sent in security to break up the two. This was almost impossible to do but eventually order was restored. Ref Jerry Calhoun declared the match a No-Contest and Ladd was never able to take off the mask. · The Match was declared No Contest MATCH 6 NWA MID AMERICAN TAG TEAM TITLE JULES STRONGBOW AND MARK YOUNGBLOOD VS THE KANSAS JAYHAWKS INDIAN STRAP MATCH The two teams have been at each other’s throats for a while now. Neither one accepts the others traditions or beliefs. Strongbow and Youngblood come out it full Native American gear including headdresses and war paint while Dutch Mantel and Bobby Jaggers come out with Black Cowboy boots, bull ropes and tobacco running down their cheeks. This match is an Indian Strap Match which means all 4 men are tied together by an 8 foot strap and you the only way you win is by dragging your opponents around the ring to all 4 corners. This match came about after both sides have whipped the other with their leather straps or bull whips. As you could expect, this was not a wrestling match but a war. All 4 men were abused with low blows by the strap, clotheslines by the strap and chokeholds by the strap. It was really hard for either team to come close to a victory because you really needed to have both your opponents incapacitated at the same time. After a double team move that included spitting tobacco in the eyes of their opponents, “Dirty” Dutch threw Youngblood over the top rope and yanked back on the rope just as Youngblood went over. This action caused Youngblood to basically hang himself. Jaggers was able to execute the exact move on Strongbow. The Jayhawks began to pull the Indians to the first corner. Every time either Strongbow or Youngblood would get their feet on the apron, the Jayhawks would kick them off to continue the “hanging” action. Second turnbuckle….. No change. Third turnbuckle….. No change. The Kansas Jayhawks reach the fourth turnbuckle and smile at each other. WHACK! They slap the 4th and final turnbuckle! NEW MID-AMERICAN TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS. · The Kansas Jayhawks defeat Jules Strongbow and Mark Youngblood at 21:01 and we have new Champions! MATCH 7: SUPERSTAR” BILL DUNDEE VS “ROWDY” RODDY PIPER with JR Foley 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. Add to that, the emotion of the return of Superstar Bill Dundee and this match has the fans on the edge of their seats. As for the match, it is high intensity with many momentum changes. Foley is all over ref Paul Morton 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 chair and go after Dundee. Dundee was able to block the chair with a side kick and the chair bounced back and hit Piper in the face busting him wide open. Dundee quickly grabbed Piper and set him up for a piledriver out on the floor. WHAM! He nailed it and headed back to the ring. Piper was out on the floor and Foley rushed to his aid but it was to no avail. Paul Morton reached the count of 10 and to the delight of the fans, Bill Dundee was successful in his return to the Mid-South Coliseum. The crowd begins to chant his name over and over again. The feud is one to watch in the future. · Superstar Dundee defeats Roddy Piper by pin at 19:31. MATCH 8: AWA SOUTHERN TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH 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 headbutt 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. Just after Miller used Williams head as a battering ram and as they were going for the pin, the bell rang signaling a time limit draw. The Sheepherders are angry as they knew they were about to become champs. They just continue to beat the Express until Morton and Gibson are a bloody mess. Finally satisfied with their beating, The Sheepherders toss the RnR out of the ring and raise then Foley grabs the arms of his tag team and raises them in a sign of dominance. What a difference a week makes. Last week, the Sheepherders were on the floor as The Express clamed ownership of the ring. This week it is the opposite. · 30 Minute Time Limit draw between the Sheepherders and The Rock n Roll Express: Express retain their titles. MATCH 9 CWA CHAMPIONSHIP FINAL: Jerry “The King” Lawler vs “The Universal Heartthrob Austin Idol” This is the one for all the marbles. The winner will be crowned the first ever Continental Wrestling Association Champion. A surprise to everyone, the first person to the ring is not Jerry Lawler or Austin Idol but the NWA Champion, Ric Flair. The fans boo him as he struts to the ring but it doesn’t seem to bother him at all. He grabs the in-house microphone and begins to address the crowd. Ric Flair: I understand you don’t like me very much but understand it is just jealousy. I ride in limos. Fly in 747’s and party with the most beautiful women in the entire world and you go about your life here in the middle of Cow Country. Also, make no mistake about. I don’t want to be here. The NWA Board of Directors, hoping to convince this small backwards promotion to become a full member of the NWA has sent me here to introduce the participants in the finals of this tournament and present the champion with the belt when the match is done. I am also here to tell you that I will be back next week to defend my NWA Title against the winner of this pathetic little promotion. So here it goes, this match is for the CWA Title and it will be Jerry Lawler vs Austin Idol. As the match starts, both men shake hands and then spend the next 5 minutes or so in a really technical battle. Lawler gets the best of this and almost forced a submission on Idol with the Royal Abdominal Stretch. The match gets a little more physical now 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 friends are in the middle of an all-out brawl. This match has it all and the fans are truly behind the “King” but they don’t want to see him loose his closest alliance. 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 those 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! Ric Flair has just blasted Jerry Lawler with that champagne bottle that Lawler and Idol had carried to ringside. Lawler is busted wide open but more importantly, he is out cold. Idol stops arguing with Calhoun as Flair sits back down. Idol rushed over to Lawler and drags him away from the ropes. Idol covers Lawler and hook the leg. Calhoun, confused, doesn’t know what happened but knows he must begin the count. 1… 2… 3… Austin Idol has defeated Jerry Lawler and is the first ever CWA Champion. Ric Flair rushes into the ring and hands Idol the belt. The two embrace and start to taunt Lawler. This was all a setup and seems to have been planned for some time. Lawler is just starting to come to and looks confused. Idol and Flair attack Lawler and start alternating elbow drops on the King. The fans have no lost control. They begin to throw things in the ring. They can’t believe the deceit of Idol and Flair. They are beside themselves. A few even try to storm the ring. Flair and Idol realize they could be in serious trouble and hightail it back to the dressing room. They are dodging bottles and all sorts of debris on their way to the locker room. Lawler is just sitting up in the ring and can’t believe Austin Idol has turned on him again. CREDIT FOR THE CHAMPAGNE BOTTLE ANGLE GOES TO TRAVIS, THE PREVIOUS WRITER FOR MEMPHIS.

    I have looked at my current roster basically has Ernie Ladd done in June of 1984. There are many free agents who are on the verge but that would take some serious work to figure out who. I think it should be the responsibility of the person picking one up to make sure they are still active. A quick search of wrestlingdata.com can show that. I mean someone who wrestles 2-3 a year is not active in my opinion.

    Memphis: CWA WRESTLING

    CWA WRESTLING: 1/14/1984: MSC STUDIOS (Memphis) SHOWN ON FOX AFFILATES THROUGHOUT TENNESSEE, ARKANSAS, KENTUCKY, AND PARTS OF MISSISSIPPI, MISSOURI AND INDIANA. Lance Russell: "Hello again, everybody! Lance Russell and Dave Brown here again for CWA Wrestling in Memphis, TN. Let’s get right to our first segment, “This Week in the CWA.” Dave take it away. Dave Brown: Well thank you Lance and great to be with you and all the wrestling fans here in the CWA. What a week it was in the CWA. Let’s get right to the results in the CWA Tournament from last Monday night at the Mid-South Coliseum. · Jerry Lawler defeated Roddy Piper by DQ as Piper was caught with a foreign object. · Butch Reed defeated Junk Yard Dog with aid from Ernie Ladd · Lord Humongous defeated Bruiser Brody in a wild barnburner of a match · Austin Idol defeated Stan Hansen by count out The Semifinals have been set for Monday, August 16th at the Mid-South Coliseum Night of Dreams, a wrestling card to honor the late Martin Luther King Jr on his first national holiday. In the first Semifinal it will be Lord Humongous vs Austin Idol and in the second, it will be The King, Jerry Lawler vs Hacksaw Butch Reed. The winners of those two matches will meet later that night in the main event to become the first ever CWA Champion. MATCH OF THE WEEK: Lord Humongous vs Bruiser Brody Not sure the CWA has ever seen a more violent match. It was inside the ring, it was outside the ring. It was one power move after another. Both wrestlers were hurt by the other but the end it was a clean victory for Humongous after back to back Ax Handle smashes to the temple of Brody. Humongous is causing havoc since his arrival in Memphis. He must be considered the favorite for the CWA Title at Match of Dreams at the Mid-South Coliseum next Monday Night. TAG TEAM OF THE WEEK: Sweet Dreams The Dream Machine gained two clean victories this week. One over the up and coming Nightmares at the UTC Arena in Chattanooga, TN and the other against the former NWA Mid-American Champs, Moondog Moretti and Hacksaw Higgins at the Soldiers and Sailors Arena in Evansville, Indiana. This victory was a revenge victory as Sweet Dreams got even with the former champs for their actions here in studio last week where they tried to take the mask of The Dream Machine and collect the $10,000 reward from Ernie Ladd. Things are really heating up for Sweet Dreams but they will soon face their Arch-enimies, The Midnight Bruise Brothers, Norvell Austin and Porkchop Cash. This match is also scheduled for The Mid-South Coliseum on January 16th. WRESTLER OF THE WEEK: Pvt. Don Kernodle Sometimes it is not the match you win or the move you hit but what you stand for. Don Kernodle has become a role model for the CWA Wrestling fans. He continues to stand up to Tojo Yamamoto and his men, Mr. Saito and Killer Khan. He doesn’t care if its 1-1 or 3-1. He will never back down and that is what America stands for. This past Monday Night he gained an upset victory in a Flag Match as he captured the American Flag to defeat Mr. Saito. The best part of this match was that Tojo Yamamoto tried to interfere in the match by giving Saito a foreign object but it was stolen by Kernodle who used it against Saito and sent him into Never Never Land. For this, CWA salutes you and is honored to give you this award. Lance Russell: “Wow Dave, it truly is an honor to watch Pvt. Don Kernodle and his unwillingness to back down. That is also going to be some card at the Coliseum this Monday night. In fact, I have already been told that the NWA World Champion will be in the building that night for his second title defense here in Memphis. Just who he will wrestle will be determined tonight in our Main Event. It will be Roddy Piper vs Tony Atlas. The first man to gain a pin or submission will receive the shot at the World Title. Well what a night this is going to be. Let’s get right to the ring for our first match. MATCH #1: Mr. Saito with Tojo Yamamoto vs Shane Douglas This is Shane Douglas’s first ever bout and it really shows. Saito dominates him and the end comes just 3:11 in as Saito connects with a Saito Suplex. After the ref made the three count, Saito continued his beating on Douglas. After a few minutes of the attack, Saito put Douglas into the Prison Lock, a modified kneeling Figure 4. From the back came Pvt. Don Kernodle to protect Douglas. Kernodle and Saito went at it for a few moments before Killer Khan hit the ring. Saito held Kernodle as Khan chopped away. Saito continued to hold Khan who was about to spray the Asian Green Mist into the eyes of Kernodle. From the stands came a stranger to the CWA who went right after Khan while throwing haymakers. Kernodle also broke free from Saito and went on the attack. Together, Kernodle and the stranger cleaned the ring. The Shogunate and Tojo thought about re-entering the ring but thought better of it as they retreated to the locker room. Kernodle looks at the stranger and a lightbulb seemed to go off in his head. The two hugged and then helped Shane Douglas to his feet and escorted him back to the locker room. Lance Russell: Well that was very interesting. It seemed that Pvt. Kernodle knew that stranger and together they really cleared the ring. We will have to get to the bottom of this but right now we need to take our first commercial break. People in Arkansas, take a look at these great shows as the CWA is returning to the Natural State. >> Promo run down of the upcoming schedule for the CWA! January 16: Memphis, Tennessee at the Mid-South Coliseum January 18: Little Rock, Arkansas at the Barton Coliseum January 19: Jonesboro, Arkansas at the ASU Arena January 20: Fayetteville, Arkansas at the Barnhill Arena Lance Russell: Well, Sir Oliver Humperdinck! What words of wisdom do you have for us tonight? Sir Oliver Humperdinck: Well, I got two things to my mind Pencil Nose and just shut and up listen. First of all, I warned you guys of the devastation of my new House of Humperdink. I am only 2 days away from owning the first CWA Heavyweight Title. That’s right, Lord Humongous is, as I said, an unstoppable machine. The other thing is that my entire new stable of wrestlers has yet to lose in the CWA and that streak will continue next. Remember, I have an open challenge that will pay any wrestler $5000.00 that can last 5 minutes with any of my men. Let’s get to the ring so that one of my monsters can feed on the blood of the next loser. Match #2: Hercules Hernandez vs whatever wrestler answers the challenge Hercules Hernandez is breaking links off the huge chain around his neck. They are hooting and howling liked caged animals. The fans are wondering if anyone will even dare to enter the ring against that muscle –bound monster. They get excited as Sweet Brown Sugar answers the challenge. As the ref calls for the bell, it is obvious that Sugar is not going to run and hide and try to just survive the 5 minutes. The match starts with the masked Sweet Brown Sugar reversing a few of Hernandez’s holds and keeping the Giant of balance. Eventually though, the power is just too much. Hernandez gets Sugar in a Back Breaker Rack and nearly breaks him in half as Sweet Brown Sugar is screaming in pain. He is waving frantically to the ref to call for the bell. Hernandez just throws him to the ground and grins as he is the victory in just over 4 minutes. Lance Russell: Wow, I really thought that Sweet Brown Sugar was going to give Hercules Hernandez a fight but he is just way too powerful. Another week gone and Humperdink gets to keep his $5000. Let’s get right back to the ring and what a treat this is going to be. Superstar Bill Dundee back in action right here in Memphis. Match #3: Superstar Bill Dundee vs Gary Royal Well the fans are excited to see Superstar Dundee back in Memphis but they hope he and Lawler can stay on the same page. They have been on the same side before but it doesn’t always last for very long. In this match, Dundee wows the fans with his willingness to fight. At only 5’7 and 212 pounds it is amazing what he gets done in the ring. The match ended after Dundee connected with a flying cross body block and then followed it up with a Spike Piledriver. Dundee gained the pin at 5:00. Lance Russell: Well, Superstar, congratulations on your successful return to the CWA. Superstar Dundee: Well thank you Lance. It is great to be back and I know there are a lot of great wrestlers here. I just wanted to wish both Jerry Lawler and Austin Idol success in their upcoming matches in the CWA tournament but I also wanted to call out one Mr. Rowdy Roddy Piper. Brother, we are from the same country. Both born and bred in the highlands of Scotland but where do you come off with this pompous arrogance. We are both here for the same reason. To try and be successful in the greatest wrestling organization there is. Period. You and Foley preach your greatness and the greatness of the Commonwealth. Well keep acting this way and I am going to put my foot where the sun don’t shine Mr. Piper. Lance Russell: Well thanks Superstar. It is about time someone is willing to stand up to Piper and Jr. Foley. We will be right back after a short break. >> Promo run down of the upcoming schedule for the CWA! January 1: Memphis, Tennessee at the Mid-South Coliseum January 3: Nashville, Tennessee at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds January 4: Chattanooga, Tennessee at the UTC Arena January 5: Knoxville, Tennessee at the Knoxville Civic Auditorium Lance Russell: Well Tony. It seems your title match Hacksaw Butch Reed has not been set yet. Reed is still in the CWA Heavyweight Tournament. Tony Atlas: Well I can tell ya one thing Mr. Russell. It doesn’t matter the time or the place. I am a patient man but brother whenever Mr. Jerry Jarrett signs that match, Butch Reed is going to know that he was in a fight. I am going to give it 100% and I am looking forward to putting that Big Mouth in his place. I asked for that match on to be set for January 3rd and now we already in the middle of the month. We all know he is ducking me but he can’t run. He says he is going to move in next store to my house just so he can beat me every day! Well so far, I aint seen no moving trucks. Just a yellow bellied coward is all he is. Lance Russell: Well Tony, good luck in your match for the NWA Mid-American Title whenever it is. Hacksaw Reed: Ernie and I just seem to share the same view. Ernie’s defeat has nothing to do Lance Russell: Let’s get to the ring for our next match Match #4: Sweet Dreams vs The Nightmares The Dream Machine and Sweet Brown Sugar come to the ring to a loud approval of the fans. They are in for a tough battle tonight as the Nightmares are quickly moving up the tag team ranks. The match is a back and forth match but the one thing that is noticed is that the Nightmares are all business. They, unlike everyone else The Dream Machine has faced lately is not going for the mask of The Dream Machine. Folks, remember Ernie Ladd has placed a $10,000 bounty on the mask of The Dream Machine. Maybe it is out of respect for the mask as the Nightmares also wear them or it could be because they are just focused on the win. The match is really back and forth and at one point all 4 men are outside the ring. This is when the crowd started to roar. Ernie Ladd, Porkchop Cash and Norvell Austin hit the floor. All 3 immediately go for The Dream Machine in hopes of taking off his mask. This only went on for a few seconds before Tony Atlas rushes out and cleans house all by himself. The ref has ruled the math a no contest because the interference was not to aid the Nightmares but to further Ladd’s own objectives. Lance Russell: Well Mr. Ladd. Enough is enough. When is this going to end? You ruined a perfectly good match. Ernie Ladd: Shut up Russell. I am sick and tired on the hypocrites that run CWA as they allow this menace to society to continue to parade around as a wrestler. He is nothing more than a two bit thug. When I get that mask off and show everyone it is Troy Graham, Jarret will have no choice but to suspend him Trust me Russell, that mask is coming off. Dutch Mantel: Are you a man or a women Lance Russell. Well it makes no difference. Lance Russell: Well Mr. Ladd. I have two questions for you. How is you interfering in this match ok when you claim that is what he did? Two wrongs don’t make a right and the second thing. Where was Hacksaw Butch Reed when your Army attacked? Did we see a little dissention in the ranks last week or is he backing down from Tony Atlas as Tony claims. Ernie Ladd: Didn’t I tell you to shut up! Lance Russell: We will be just have to wait to see how all this plays out. We will be right back after this message. COMMERCIAL PLAYS FOR JERRY LAWLER’S NEW RESTAURANT Lance Russell: Thanks for giving us a few moments of your time. Last week, Dutch Mantel and Bobby Jaggers challenged you to a strap match where all 4 men will be strapped together at the same time for the NWA Mid-American Titles. Jules Strongbow: That’s correct Lance and both Mark and myself are true fighting champions. We accept there challenge for this Monday Night at Night of Dreams. Mark Youngblood: I can’t wait to be tied to those low down dirty wanna be Cowboys. These leather straps are part of our culture and by the end of this they will be beaten and sore they will never want to step in the ring with us again. Lance Russell: Well short and sweet. I guess this feud is really coming to a head. Let’s get to the ring for our Main Event. This match will be TV Time Remaining. Match #4: MAIN EVENT: Austin Idol and Jerry Lawler vs Lord Humongous and Butch Reed . Maybe the best main event Memphis has seen on TV in a long long time. Lawler and Idol are the obvious fan favorites and have much more experience as a team but Reed and Humongous are so big and strong it will be interesting. It will also be interesting to see how these guys try take each other out as these are the 4 Finalists in the CWA Championship Tournament. Idol and Reed start that match and as you would expect, it is a brawl from start to finish. The match continues with a series of tags but it is obvious that Lawler and Idol have no answer for the power of Reed and Humongous. Lawler becomes isolated in the ring as Reed and Humongous just pound on him. Each time Idol tries to get in to help his partner, ref Jerry Calhoun just forces him out which allows for more double teaming from his opponents. With only a few seconds left in the show, Humongous hits a two handed choke slam and goes for the cover. Idol again rushes in but Reed catches his with a short armed clothesline that knocks him out of the ring. Calhoun completes the 1-2-3 on Lawler and the crowd is in shock to see their heroes fall so easily. Reed and Humongous just look at each other as they know they may soon be opponents. Lawler is laid out on the mat and Idol on the floor as the credits start to role. Lance Russell: What a night I going to be at the Mid-South Coliseum. This Monday, January 16th.

    Great show! Love the Tully/TA angle. Love the format. You do a great job of giving us so much without writing too much. I need to learn how to be better at that. The show really flows well and promotes the next big card. Way to sell tickets! Always love JYD, Duggan, Wahoo and DIbiase! Your roster is like watching all my favorites from childhood minus Tommy Rich. Who could the Executioner be? The wrestling suspense that keeps us all coming back.

    MEMPHIS GOSSIP: Jerry Jarrett and the CWA Board of Directors is having a time balancing the idea of promoting their own organization and staying loyal to both the AWA and the NWA. They are very interested in seeing the reaction by the fans and the other organizations to them having their own CWA heavyweight champion. If it is well received, there could be a CWA Tag Team Title on the horizon. There have been rumors that Jarrett is trying to bring in another major baby face to deal with all the heels currently in the CWA. In there early training sessions, Bam Bam Bigelow and Shane Douglas have received rave reviews. A recent promotional map of what area each region controls has been making its way around the wrestling world and it was overheard that Jarrett is looking to expand. To where, nobody knows.

    MEMPHIS GOSSIP: Lord Humongous favored to be first CWA Champion Most people believe that The Dream Machine is not Troy Graham despite what Ernie Ladd says. Are Ernie Ladd and Hacksaw Reed having trouble staying on the same page? The Nightmares are quickly moving up the tag team ratings but can they make it to the top?
  25. Love how you keep us informed all of all your wrestlers with the minor card info. Your tag team division is pretty stacked right now. Would love to read about a Tommy Rich match everyday!
