    1983 Project General Chatter Thread

    I think we need to define retired. Many of those wrestlers would make a few appearances a year to hype an angle but were truly not "active." For example, my on Ernie Ladd had only 1 match after June 21st and that was in October. He did have another match in 1988. To me, his retirement date is June 21, 1984 and not October of 1984. I am still unsure though of what constitutes retirement. Is one match a month really active. I am unsure of how people feel on this but we should weigh in on what is active. If we agree on this, we should all double check our own rosters and place them on the retirement list at the correct time. We should also double check before we add any free agents to our rosters.

    OOOHHHHH YEA! Macho Madness begins! I agree with Lowblow and really like the rise of Kamala. I hope Pat Patterson and Ray Stevens get whats oming to them. They were just too arrogant for too long. You hvae their attitude down very nicely. Love the Mr. Fugi/ David-san interview. Good show as always.
  3. Just love the flow of the TV show. From angle to angle, I could feel the action. Heavenly Bodies vs Lightening Express- Two great 1980's team battling it out is great. Throw in Cornette and Lynch, it is perfect. Roy Lee Welch turn to heel. Classic. Could I see a family reunion down the road. Beat The Champ is a fun angle by itself, throw it a little Nightmare switch and it is great. "Just call me Baby Doll" angle and her new stable and a brawl makes everyone happy. Wrestling fans like it and males in general love it. Bob Armstrong to the wild brawl at the end with Rich and the Fab Ones rushing out to the screaming fans. This is like a classic Saturday night TBS show when I was 12. Send this in to Vince McMahon and wrestling could be good again.

    Memphis: CWA WRESTLING

    CWA WRESTLING: FAYETTEVILLE, ARKANSAS FROM BARNHILL ARENA THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 1984 MATCH #1: Steve Simpson defeats Tommy Gilbert by pin after a powerslam at 11:56. MATCH #2: The Clawmasters, Baron Von Raschke and The Spoiler defeat Shane Douglas and Bam Bam Bigelow when The Spoiler locked in the Brain Claw on Shane Douglas at 7:42. This is the second win for the CLawmasters since joining the CWA. It is also the first loss in the last 4 matches for Bigelow and Douglas. MATCH #3: The Sheepherders destroyed The Nightmares in 10:21 when Williams grabbed Miller’s head and used it as a battering ram on Nightmare #1. The Sheepherders were especially brutal tonight! They seem to be gearing up for their title bout against The Rock n Roll Express on Feb 13th. MATCH #4: Brett Wayne defeats Ken Raper after a top rope leg drop at 7:02. Brett Wayne seems to be stuck right in the middle of the CWA rankings. He defeats the bottom rung guys but loses to the top. Match #5: NWA MID AMERICAN TAG TITLE BOUT The Kansas Jayhawks (Dutch Mantel and Bobby Jaggers) defeat SWEET DREAMS (The Dream Machine and Sweet Brown Sugar) when Dirty Dutch, from outside the ring, kicks Sweet Brown Sugar in the back on an Irish Whip. This causes Sugar to fall right into the clutches of Bobby Jaggers who hits a swinging neckbreaker for the victory. MATCH #6: AWA SOUTHERN CHAMPIONSHIP BOUT Jerry Lawler defeats Roddy Piper after Piper was counted out of the ring. Lawler, with a rather daring move, hit his top rope fist drop on Piper who was on the floor at the time. As Lawler’s hand was raised in victory, The Sheepherders attacked him. Lucky for Lawler that Superstar Bill Dundee and Sweet Dreams came to his rescue.

    Dirt Sheets

    Memphis News There are rumors that Jerry Jarrett was very upset at Ric Flair for his lack of respect that he showed Jerry Lawler and the CWA Championship Belt when he was here for Night of Dreams on Jan 16. Jarrett is trying to figure out a way to get revenge on the Champ in his next appearance in the CWA which is scheduled for Feb 13th at the Mid-South Coliseum. It is also believed that the Kansas Jayhawks may have bitten off more then they can chew with their big mouths and attempts to injury wrestlers. As of now, they are scheduled to face Troy Graham and Sweet Brown Sugar on Feb 13th but their may be a Major fill in for their NWA Mid-American Tag Championship. We should find out on the TV show on Feb 11th. Many find it interesting that Plowboy Frazier would choose Sir Oliver Humperdink as his opponent on Feb 13th, especially in a no DQ match. Doesn't he know this will give the entire House of Humperdink free rain to attack him. It seems that Jarrett has Ernie Ladd involved in 2 huge angles. First is the mask bounty he has on The Dream Machine and second is his recent problems with Hacksaw Reed. Is Lad young enough to handle all of this or is Jarrett trying to force him out by overworking him. Now you ask, why force Ladd out. Maybe Jarrett is still in contract talks with Ted Turner. Hacksaw Reed could be the lead figure in Georgia but it might not work if he is so closely linked to Ladd who seems to have no interest of moving to Atlanta.

    Memphis: CWA WRESTLING

    CWA WRESTLING: JONESBORO, ARKANSAS FROM THE ARKANSAS STATE ARENA THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 1984 MATCH #1: Shane Douglas and Bam Bam Bigelow defeat Tommy Gilbert and David Johnson after a belly to belly suplex by Shane Douglas on Tommy Gilbert at 6:56. MATCH #2: The Nightmares defeat Robert Reed and David Johnson after Nightmare #2 hits a diving leg drop off the top rope on Robert Reed at 7:42. MATCH #3: Steve Simpson defeats Ken Raper by submission after a Johannesburg Sleeper. This is Simpson’s first win in the CWA at it comes at 10:02 MATCH #4: Lord Humongous defeats Plowboy Frazier with an AX smash at 14:34. Lord Humongous had a difficult time taking the big man off his feet but when Humperdink distracted the ref, Humongous hit Frazier with a foreign object that knocked him for a loop. Humongous then came off the ropes and connected with the AX Smash. Match #5: NWA MID AMERICAN TITLE BOUT “Hacksaw” Butch Reed defeated Sweet Brown Sugar at 13:21 after a Gorilla Press Slam. While Sweet Brown Sugar tried to use his athleticism in this match, Reed’s power was just too much for Sugar. Ernie Ladd was conspicuous in his absence here in Jonesboro tonight. MATCH #6: AWA SOUTHERN TAG CHAMPIONSHIP BOUT The Rock n Roll Express and Hercules Hernandez wrestle to a 30 minute draw. What a match this was. The power of Sawyer and Hercules vs the speed of the RnR Express. The Rock n Roll Express had to use all their tag team experience and great double teaming moves to keep their belts here tonight. Sawyer and Hercules are definitely a team on the rise and if Ricky Morton had not rolled out of the way of Sawyer’s Frog Splash at the last second, there would be new champions.

    Memphis: CWA WRESTLING

    CWA WRESTLING: LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS FROM THE BARTON COLISEUM: WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 1984 MATCH #1: Shane Douglas and Bam Bam Bigelow defeat Tommy Gilbert and Wendell Cooley after powerbomb by Bigelow on Tommy Gilbert at 7:56. Bam Bam and Douglas are on a roll of late going 3-0-1 in their last 4 tag bouts. Might be time to see what happens when they step up in competition. The match lasted 10:02 MATCH #2: Killer Khan and Tojo Yamamoto defeat Ken Raper and David Johnson after Khan put the Cobra Clutch on Raper at 5:21. This match was very one sided and brutal. It was also the first match for Yamamoto in quit some time as he is focusing on his managerial skills as of late. Maybe the match was so brutal because Khan and Yamamoto wanted to send a message to Pvt. Kernodle and Corporal Kirchner who were in the building that night. MATCH #3: Mr. Saito defeats Steve Simpson after a Saito Suplex and just 5:02. MATCH #4: Mr. USA Tony Atlas defeated Ernie Ladd by DQ as Ladd, frustrated with his lack of momentum in this match, hit Atlas in the back with a chair. What might have bothered Ladd even more was that his man, Hacksaw Reed, had more success against Atlas in their last bout then he did tonight. He also might be angered that Reed was not there to come to his aid when Atlas rebounded after being hit with a chair and pummeled Ladd to the delight of the fans. Match #5: NWA MID- AMERICAN TAG TITLE BOUT The Kansas Jayhawks, Dutch Mantel and Bobby Jaggers wrestled The Ft. Bragg Brotherhood, PVT. Kernodle and CPL. Kirchner to a 20 minute draw. Both teams had their chances. Jaggers connected on a reverse neck-breaker on Kernodle but Kirchner made the save. Kirchner also connected with an AIRBORNE SLAM on Dirty Dutch but it was too close to the ropes. After the bell sounded, the Kansas Jayhawks went after their opponents with their bull ropes but the Brotherhood made a quick escape to the locker room. MATCH #6: AWA SOUTHERN CHAMPIONSHIP BOUT Roddy Piper defeated Troy Graham after JR Foley distracted the ref which allowed Piper to hit Graham with a low blow and then he followed it up with a massive high knee to the temple. The pin came 22:31 into the bout.

    I agree with the other remarks. Love how you use 6,8,10 man tag matches with interesting combos to enhance feuds and keep your roster active.

    WWA results 1984

    Loves seeing the Youngbloods back together. Good luck with them. Also loved seeing Adams over Bockwinkle. That is one to watch. I enjoyed it being the first match as I could imagine that if I watched this live, I would have talked about it for the entire show. People forget how good Garea was in tag team action. You have a few really good teams and that makes your tag division a lot of fun to both read and write.

    Looking forward to the "Battle of New Orleans." Very interested to see what becomes of "Only the Loser can bring him back early." Not sure I have seen that before. Must be a great feud on the horizon.

    Memphis: CWA WRESTLING

    CWA WRESTLING: MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE FROM THE MID-SOUTH COLISEUM: MONDAY, JANUARY 30, 1984 MATCH #1: The Clawmasters (Baron Von Raschke & The Spoiler) defeat Tommy Gilbert and Ken Raper when the Spoiler puts the claw on Raper and forces him to submit and 4:45. This is the first match in the CWA for the Clawmasters. MATCH #2: The Nightmares and Bam Bam Bigelow and Shane Douglas wrestle to a 15:00 time limit draw. Again, the rookies continue to show improvement. Both are powerful and agile but have much to learn. MATCH #3: Mr. Saito defeats Wendell Cooley after a Saito Suplex and just 4:11. MATCH #4: Lord Humongous defeats Plowboy Frazier in 7:11 after two AX Smashes took the big guy down to the canvass. Humongous continued his assault on Frazier long after the bout ended. It seems the House of Humperdink is getting revenge on their former stable member. Match #5: Abdullah The Butcher, Buzz Sawyer and Hercules Hernandez defeat The Fort Bragg Brotherhood (PVT. Kernodle and CPL Kirchner) and their teammate Brett Wayne after Sawyer hit a frog splash on Brett Wayne at 13:23.. It did seem that the rest of Sawyer’s partners wanted to continue the attack on Brett Wayne but Buzz started barking at them and they all left the ring. MATCH #6: Tony Atlas, The Dream Machine and Sweet Brown Sugar wrestled to a double DQ against Ernie Ladd, Porkchop Cash and Hacksaw Reed as ref Paul Morton lost control and called for the bell at 23:21. MATCH #7: Roddy Piper and the Sheepherders defeated The Rock n Roll Express and Steve Simpson after Piper caught Simpson with a low blow. MATCH #8: JERRY THE KING LAWLER AND SUPERSTAR BILL DUNDEE DEFEATED CWA CHAMPION AUSTIN IDOL & NWA CHAMPION RIC FLAIR WHEN LAWLER CAUGHT IDOL WITH A TOP ROPE FIST DIVE. FLAIR NEVER SEEMED TO EVEN MAKE AN ATTEMPT TO SAVE IDOL. THE MATCH LASTED 28:56.

    Memphis: CWA WRESTLING

    Lowblow, Thanks for the feedback. I agree with you in terms of the format. I am having trouble transferring it from word to the post. It seems to change sizes and spacing on me. It is my lack of computer skills that cause much of the issues and for that I am sorry. I will try to simplify it but any suggestions would be helpful. I have also tried to make it much shorter. I have cut down by about 1/3 on the length but still must make it easier to read. I agree with you in terms of the rankings. I had looked at an internet site listing the 1984 ratings from PWI and they listed it the way I have it now but do like your idea better.

    Very Solid Card! Love the Main Event! STARRCADE WORTHY MATCH! I love the Freebird/Windham feud but do think Barry needs more then a rookie, Kendall and a rotating 3rd main to contend wtih BAM BAM, BUDDY JACK and P.S. HAYES. Maybe that is just because I think the Freebirds are Aewsome. Love see Kamala rise up to Championship Bouts! Keep up the great shows.
  15. Now that was some main event. Fuller, Rich, steel cage, A tall man, Buddy Landell, Baby Doll, The Hollywood Blondes, Jimmy Golden, Embry, Timbs and THE POLICE! Love some Southern WRASTLIN CHAOS! All the big names seem to be in great angles and feuds which keeps Southeastern as one of my favorite promotions. You also seem to have divided your smaller roster very well as there are still some big enough names to draw a crowd.

    Memphis: CWA WRESTLING

    CWA WRESTLING: 1/28/1984: 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. Before we get to our first segment, “This Week in the CWA.” with Dave, I would like to take you to a video replay of the closing moments of last week’s TV Show. Jerry Lawler: Again Lance, I just want to talk to Austin. It was an emotional night for all of us and we will just have to wait and see. Lance Russell: As for you Ricky Morton and Robert Gibson, you were lucky to escape with your AWA Mid-South Tag Titles as the Sheepherders appeared on the verge of victory last Monday when the match ended in a Time Limit Draw. Robert Gibson: Appeared Lance, Appeared. You can never count us out. Things were not looking good but it is never over until it is over. Ricky Morton: SHEEPHERDERS! I will give it to you. You are two tough dudes but we will never back down and we will never run away. Anytime any place brother! Superstar Bill Dundee: That goes for you also Mr. Rowdy Roddy Piper. Anytime anyplace. I am sick and tired of what you are saying about this good people from Memphis. Lance Russell: Well, Gentleman! I am afraid we are just about out of time. The Sheepherders, Piper and NONE OTHER THAN AUSTIN IDOL attack from behind. All 8 men are really brawling out on the floor as the credits start to roll. Lance Russell: Jerry, we have asked you to come out because a lot of “This Week in The CWA” has to do with you. Take it away Dave. Dave Brown: Well thank you Lance and great to be with you and all the wrestling fans here in the CWA. What a crazy week it has been. We actually have video tape of all four major matches so sit back and enjoy the bonus tape. MAJOR MATCHES THIS WEEK: THREE WINNERS · NWA Title Match: Ric Flair vs Austin Idol This match started out with a handshake as the two where in cahoots last Monday to help earn Austin the CWA Championship. The fans seem to be sick to their stomachs as they watch this match. They really hope there is no winner and that they beat the heck out of each other. Well they got their wish. They really went at it and traded a series of power moves and haymakers. Both wrestlers actually weakened the knees of their opponent and strapped in their finisher: The Figure Four Leglock. Neither man submitted but they were both injured badly. This is when Jerry Lawler hit the ring and went wild on both men. Throwing rights and lefts and alternating between Flair and Idol, Lawler was possessed. After about a minute or two of this Roddy Piper hit the ring an immediately caught Lawler with a low-blow and they laid the boots to him. Idol joined in on the attack and Flair just sat back with a grin on his face. Superstar Bill Dundee rushed the ring and now Idol, Piper =, Dundee and Lawler beat on each other just as last week. Ric Flair threw his hands in the air and walked out of the ring to the locker room laughing all the way. Eventually Dundee and Lawler gained control of the ring. In the dressing room, Lawler was still out of control and demanded a match with Piper last Wednesday Night against Roddy Piper at Louisville Gardens. The fans were overjoyed that their heroes left in control of the ring. · AWA SOUTHERN TITLE MATCH: Jerry Lawler vs Roddy Piper (Louisville, KY) To the demise of the fans, this bout did not go so great for their hero. Jerry Lawler, due to interference by JR Foley who distracted the ref long enough for Piper to hit Lawler with a foreign object lost his AWA Southern Championship to Roddy Piper. · NWA Mid:American Title: Hacksaw Reed vs Toy Atlas: 60 Minute Draw (Lexington KY) This match could not have been a better. The two muscled bound freaks hit each other with everything but the kitchen sink but neither could get a pinfall. The closest came when the ref was down and Reed had Atlas up for a Gorilla Press Slam. Ernie Ladd was also in the ring and in his attempt to slam Atlas to the ground, he accidently knocked Reed down with Atlas falling on top. If the ref had been in position, it would have been an easy 3 count. As it was, Reed just kicked out at 2 ¾. We have definitely not heard the last of this. · AWA SOUTHERN TAG TITLE: Rock n Roll Express vs The Mothership Connection (Evansville, Indiana) The Mothership Connection, Iceman Parsons and George Wells were recently named the #1 contenders to the AWA Southern Title by Stanly Blackburn and this match pitted two fan favorites against one another. The Rock n Roll Express held the advantage in terms of who the crowd supported but that was mainly due to the location of the match but anywhere the crowd goes, the love them some Iceman! As for the match, it was high speed, high energy all the way. The title almost changed hands twice. Both times when Iceman connected on his famous Butt Butt Hip Attack. Once hit Robert Gibson and once he hit Ricky Morton. Both times the partner from outside the ring had to make the save or it would have been curtains. The end came after a tag by Gibson to Morton and the RnR Express connected with one of their famous Double Drop Kicks on George Wells. The match almost went the 30 minute time limit but ended at 28:28. TAG TEAM OF THE WEEK: The Ft. Bragg Brotherhood Revenging last week’s loss to Mr. Saito and Killer Khan, was a huge step forward for Pvt. Kernodle and Cpl. Kirchner. When Kirchner hit Killer Khan with a football tackle and gained the pin, it moved the Brotherhood into a potential number 1 contender’s match for the NWA Mid-American Titles. WRESTLER OF THE WEEK: Roddy Piper New CWA Champion. Enough said! Dave Brown: ok, Lance, let’s get back to you and Jerry Lawler. Lance Russell: Well, I really do want to hear what is on your mind Jerry. I mean it has been a rough couple of weeks. Jerry Lawler: Lance, I can tell you I am just sick. I have this empty feeling in the pit of my stomach. I mean fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. What was I thinking trusting that scum Austin Idol and then for JR Foley to interfere in my match with Piper causing me to lose my title. It is a dark day for the King but let me tell you one thing. It won’t last. Idol, Piper and that dirty dog Ric Flair have no place to hide. The revenge starts tonight! It is myself and Bill Dundee against Idol and Piper. We are going to take a big piece out of their hide! Memphis, this is my city and I will not let that imposter play Big Man in my town! MATCH #1: The Nightmares vs Shane Douglas and Scott Bigelow Neither, Bigelow or Douglas have one a match yet and this is their first time as a tag team. Granted, they are getting better but this is a tough match up for them. After a few momentum changes, the end came when the Nightmares double teamed Bigelow with a drop kick followed up by a frog splash by Nightmare #2. Even though they had a huge size advantage, Bigelow and Douglas seemed to have a difficult time in the tag match. Lance Russell: Wow, I think those two young guns are going to get it. Fans in Arkansas, the CWA will be in your area once again. Get your tickets now. >> Promo run down of the upcoming schedule for the CWA! January 30: Memphis, Tennessee at the Mid-South Coliseum February 1: Little Rock, Arkansas at the Barton Coliseum February 2: Jonesboro, Arkansas at the ASU Arena February 3: Fayetteville, Arkansas at Barnhill Arena Lance Russell: Well, Sir Oliver Humperdinck! It seems that your House of Humperdinck is on fire. Nobody has been able to last 5 minutes in the ring with any of your men. That’s good for you as that means you keep the $5000 you put up for anyone that could stay in the ring with any of your wrestlers. Sir Oliver Humperdinck: Well, Pencil Nose, to be honest I am a little bit sick and tired of many of the big mouth wrestlers here in the CWA. They all talk a good game. They run their mouth about how big and bad they are. Then I put up $5000 of my own money if any of them can last 5 minutes in the ring with any of my men. Who comes out for the challenge? Not Jerry Lawler! Not Troy Graham! Not Superstar Bill Dundee! No the bottom rungs guys answer my challenge. I bet it is that fat slob Doughboy Frazier pushing them out here. The gutless pig! I tell you Frazier! I saw you backstage eating a whole large pizza a minute ago. How about you get up from the dinner table and answer the bell. I tell you what. I will give you $10,000 if you can last 5 minutes with Lord Humongous right now. Lord Humongous, hockey mask at all enters the ring as Plowboy Frazier comes to the interview table.> Plowboy Frazier: I am getting really sick and tired of you Humperdink. > Sir Oliver Humperdink: I told you stupid people of Memphis. Nobody, and I mean nobody leaves the House of Humperdink on their own. Frazier thought he could leave whenever he wanted to. No look at him just look at that fat slob. Remember, once I buy a wrestle, I OWN THEM FOREVER! Lance Russell: Well Mr. Jarrett some actions are just more disgusting then others. That was one of the worst I have seen. Jerry Jarrett: I have to agree with you Lance. I am also finning, Sir Oliver Humperdink $1000 for his actions here tonight. That was a setup and not the match that we had sanctioned. Humperdink can not interfere in the operations of the CWA whenever he choices. Do you know what is also very interesting. St. Valentine’s Eve Massacre. That’s right. While every Monday is huge at the Mid-South Coliseum, in two weeks were are going to have a historical set of matches for you. Already signed, Jerry Lawler will get his chance to capture the CWA Title from Austin Idol. Superstar Dundee will take on Roddy Piper for the AWA Southern Title, The Rock n Roll Express will once again ace off with the Sheepherders. Butch Reed will put his NWA Mid-American Title on the line against Tony Atlas. The Kansas Jayhawks and Ric Flair will also have title defenses. That’s right folks, 6 great Title Matches on one card and that is not all. There will be 3 special matches to attempt to settle some of our major feuds right now in the CWA. First of all, Ernie Ladd will get his rematch against the Dream Machine. If Ernie Ladd wins the match, The Dream Machine will be forced to take off his mask. If The Dream machine wins, Ernie Ladd will have to fork over the $10,000 to the Dream Machine. Second, The Ft. Bragg Brotherhood, Pvt. Kernodle and Cpl, Kirchner will face off against Tojo Yamamoto’s Shogunate, Killer Khan and Mr. Saito in an anything goes BOOTCAMP MATCH. The last match will be determined by Plowboy Frazier. Again, the actions by Humperdink and his men tonight disgust me. I am going to talk to Plowboy Frazier and if his health is ok to wrestle, I will allow him to make the stipulations for a match against any member of the House of Humperdink. Lance Russell: Wow folks, St. Valentine’s Eve Massacre. That is going to be some card. Let’s get back to the ring for our next match. Match #2: Tony Atlas vs Ted Allen A completely one sided match. While Allen is quick and has nice technical skills, the power of Atlas was just too much. Atlas wins by submission after a Bearhug at 3:54. Lance Russell: Well Tony, Congratulations on your victory tonight. You must be very excited about what Jerry Jarrett had to say. Tony Atlas: Ohhhhhhh Brother you better believe it. Last time Reed, you barely escaped. This time the title will be all mines. People of Memphis, let’s do this together! Reed, your days are numbered now boy! Count down begins TONIGHT! Lance Russell: Well he seems excited and who could blame him. Let’s take a break. >> Replay of Promo running down of the upcoming schedule for the CWA! Lance Russell: Well Mr. Ladd. It seems that you got what you wanted. It is you and The Dream Machine at St. Valentine’s Eve Massacre. If you win, he must take off his mask. If you lose, he gets $10,000 of YOUR money. Ernie Ladd: That’s right! For once Jarrett did what was right. In two weeks that mask is coming off that dummy! I will prove to each and every one of you it is Troy Graham. I mean anyone can see. Just look at that beard through that mask. Just look at the quirky dances he does in the ring. The way he walks. The way he talks. Once I prove it is Troy Graham, he will feel the force of my entire Army. It is not just those few here in Memphis. My Army reaches nationwide and he will have no place to hide. Lance Russell: Well we will just have to wait. That will be some match. Let’s get to the ring for our next match Match #4: Killer Khan& Mr. Saito with Tojo Yamamoto vs Tommy Gilbert and Ken Raper A complete squash match. The fans were somewhat excited to see Tommy Gilbert back in the CWA. He did have a nice run a few months ago with his partner Brian Adias but today, he and his partner just got crushed from the opening bell. The end came after Mr. Saito connected on a Saito Suplex at just 4:04 into the match. Lance Russell: Well Tojo, your men were very impressive here tonight. Will they be ready for their Bootcamp Match on Feb 13 at the Mid-South Coliseum against The Ft. Bragg Brotherhood? I mean that is a wild match. No Rules, Falls Count Anywhere. Tojo Yamamoto: Mis-tah Russell. That question not veeery smart. My men always ready. I almost feel sooorry for Private Kernodtle and Cpl. Kirssner. Almost but nooo reeaally. Just like Pearl Harbor, my men will attack and you slow Americans will have no answers. Mr. Saito with bend you two American Army people into pretzels. Killer Khan will crush you with his bare hands. When it is over there will be nothing left on you. Lance Russell: Wow, those are some scary guys. I do think they mean business. I hope the Ft. Bragg Brotherhood is ready for them. As we go to break, take a look at the newest CWA Ratings. SINGLES 1. Austin Idol CWA Champion 2. Roddy Piper: AWA Southern Champ 3. Hacksaw Reed: NWA Mid-American Champ 4. Jerry Lawler 5.

The Shogunate: (Killer Khan & Mr. Saito) COMMERCIAL PLAYS FOR JERRY LAWLER’S NEW RESTAURANT Lance Russell: Thanks for giving us a few moments of your time but I am not sure you will like everything I have to say. First of all, Mr. Foley how do you feel about your interference in the AWA Southern Match last week In Louisville, Kentucky that costs Jerry Lawler his title? JR Foley: How dare you accuse me of such actions? You better watch your mouth or I will have my lawyers sue you in a heartbeat. What you claim, is so far from the truth. Why would a superior wrestler like Roddy Piper need my help to defeat Queen Lawler? If you wish to talk about cheating, when are you going to bring up the interference by that little man, Superstar Dundee? I mean, if there was any justice in this organization, he should be suspended. And again. I hear nothing of the blatant rule breaking by the Rock n Roll Express against my Sheepherders last week. It was their cheating that cost the bets tag team in the world, The Sheepherders, the AWA Southern Tag Titles. But again, I hear no complaints about those things from an imbecile like you Lance Russell. Roddy Piper: Well, Lance, I am going to tell you one of my hobbies. I enjoy going to wrestling events when I am not in action and watching the Midgets wrestle. I mean it is really fun to watch them crawl under the bottom rope. Go through each other’s legs and make “Giant Splashes” from the first turnbuckle. I mean I think “Little Tokyo vs Lord Little Brook is a great way to spend of Saturday night. Lance Russell: Do you have point to this story. Roddy Piper: Not a point but a question for you. What do you think would happen if one of those Midgets stepped into the ring with either myself or the Sheepherders? Lance Russell: Well I do not think that is a fair fight. Roddy Piper: Oh, now we are talking brother! It is not a fair fight. Does Mr. Jarrett believe it will be a fair fight at St. Valentine’s Eve Massacre when he puts that Midget Superstar Dundee in the ring vs me. I mean, don’t blame me if I kill him. He should stick to Midget Bowling like the rest of the hardheaded little people but it is his funeral. Lance Russell: Ok now, Mr. Piper. That’s about enough of that. I believe you three have a match and not just any math, the main event vs Jerry Lawler and The Rock n Roll Express. Folks, this match will be a time remaining match. Match #5: The Rock n Roll Express & Jerry Lawler vs The Sheepherders and Roddy Piper Just as you would expect, it is a brawl from beginning to end. The fan favorites hold the early advantage as there are fired up. Lawler mounted Piper and the crowd counted 10 huge right hands to the jaw. Piper stumbled to the ground as Lawler climbed the ropes and connected with a top rope fist drop. As he went for the pin, both Sheepherders rushed in to break it up. The Rock N Roll Express entered and now we had a Pier 6 Brawl going on with all men in the squared circle. JR Foley was seen by the TV Cameras putting on a pair of brass knuckles as Piper had gained control of Lawler. Ref Jerry Calhoun called for the bell as it was obvious he had lost control. Just as Foley was about to hit Lawler with the brass knuckles, Superstar Bill Dundee hit the ring and grabbed Foley by his legs and pulled him off the apron. Foley hit his chin and the mat on the way down and the knuckles were on the ground. Dundee went to grab them. Lance Russell: Folks were are just about out of time. We have about 30 seconds left. Remember to get your tickets for the big show Feb 13th at The Mid-South Coliseum. Dundee had the brass knuckles on as was about to pop Foley when out of nowhere came Austin Idol with a running knee to Dundee’s head. The 8 biggest superstars in the Continental Wrestling Association were now in a full out brawl in and out of the ring. Voice Over: "The announcers on this program are selected and paid by parties other than this station, namely, the promoters of Championship Wrestling."

    Very nice work. You seem so comfortable with your roster and plans in such a short time! Flair/Steamboat: A MACW CLASSIC! LOVE THE FREEBIRDS! BAM BAM AS A TAG TEAM OR SINGLES WRESTLER. IT ALL WORKS. Love the short quick format. I am trying to cut mine down as it seems much more enjoyable to do and read.
  18. Tommy Rich in another huge cage match. First Buzz and now Fuller. Love it! Tag Team rich Southeastern Wrestling: The champs, Horner& Armstrong, The Heavenly Bodies, Davis and Lane, The Nightmares.... Alabama has got some real choices to make here! Armstrong & Golden for the Southeastern Belt.... those are two huge names in Alabama Wrestling. I love how you keep this somewhat historically correct and stay true to your roster. This might be my biggest weakness. I see a name and can't help myself and then they don't fit the promotion. Another Rich family member messing with the Stud Stable. This is all going to come to head I imagine. Great work!

    Memphis News -It seems the Continental Wrestling Association is trying its best to keep up with the times and get a national TV contract. Jerry Jarrett has been in meetings with many major players in the cable industry including WTBS and Ted Turner. Ted Turner is believed to love the current roster but wants the CWA to move its headquarters to Atlanta. -If Turner and Jarrett reach an agreement, what will become of the CWA/AWA Alliance. Everyone knows that Georgia is an NWA town but the CWA and especially Lawler have been unhappy with the actions and lack of respect of both the NWA and its champion Ric Flair. If CWA goes fully NWA, it is rumored Lawler wants out! Lawler is actually in negotiations with Jarrett himself to buy part of the company. If this happens, it would be hard pressed seeing it move away from the King's hometown. Lawler says he wants in now because of the bright future of the CWA. He says he has never seen 4 rookie wrestlers like Bam Bam Bigelow, Shane Douglas, Steve Simpson and Wendell Cooley in one place at one time. -Many of the wrestlers have also heard this rumor and are upset about possible travel issues. TBS is centered in Atlanta but the major show for CWA is a weekly program in the Mid-South Coliseum in Memphis. Tony Atlas was overheard complaining about recent remarks by Rocky Johnson up in the Detroit area. These two former partners seem lucky that they are separated by some 500 miles. Let's see if they can stay away from each other or will this feud turn hot. -Ernie Ladd seems to be up to his old tricks again. He has angered everyone from Troy Graham to Butch Reed of late. Will his size and athleticism allow him to keep running his mouth or is his age keeping up with him. -It is true, Jarrett has signed Baron Von Raschke and The Spoiler. This might have something to do with Ted Turner and Georgia as they were recently major players in Georgia Championship Wrestling. Jarrett might be trying to bring back some of the old talent to entice Turner and reignite the Georgia Wrastlin Scene as it has been quiet of late. It seems that the CWA's next big event, St. Valentine's Eve Massacre on Feb 13th will bring back some Memphis favorites. Stay tuned for more details.

    Wow, Rip Rogers with wins over both Pedro Morales and Pez Whatley. He is on a roll. A 10 Man Tag Match: That's the way to get the feuds going and the whole roster involved in a match with little long term meaning. Very Nice!

    Great work getting the Vachons back! Love the way you worked in unsigned contracts. Looking forward to seeing what you do with the freebirds. I think they are a promotion changer! I feel the same about Skandar Akbar! Glad to see the Strongbows back together! I am also interested in who comes to feud with Terry Taylor. U.S. Title is a pretty big deal. Good Luck. Any way I could be of help, please ask.

    Seems like Jeff Sword was very active in 1984. I think it someone wants to work with him it should be okay.

    With trading Mark Youngblood to WWA, my 35th roster spot is now open. I am moving Ted Allen into a jobber role in the 35th spot and adding Tommy Gilbert and Wendell Cooley to join him in that spot. To place in an active role in the 34th roster spot, I now add Steve Simpson.
