    Love seeing the Texas Dynasty in an AWA match. Keep using the all the AWA has to offer as the cards get better and better.

    Southwest Championship Wrestling Results

    Wasn't saying more of a national feel to Southwest but in general. A match between the Texas Dynasty and The Wild Bills or The Road Warriors would be awesome. I enjoyed seeing Jerry Lawler have a shot at Hogan and cant wait until the AWA Tag Champions come to Memphis. Dusty Rhodes and Harley Race or Ric Flair made for supercards even though they were from different territories. Beating Race and being NWA champ had a lot to do with who Tommy Rich was in 1981. Again, just to be clear, love what Southwest is doing but also enjoy the mixing of rosters with national title defenses.

    Southwest Championship Wrestling Results

    Enjoyed reading the TV show. The Texas Dynasty continues to be a fun read and I enjoyed the Alfred Hayes bit. Liked hearing about the Fabulous Ones against the Wild Bills. Wish there was more of a national feel at times. Love the territories but enjoy hearing of the champions making the rounds.

    Championship Wrestling from Florida

    Kevin Sullivan is a show stopper where ever he goes and you used him so well. I really like the future of CWF as there are up and comers, newcomers, and main eventers.

    Free Agency Wire

    I am already picking last in the December draft so it doesn't matter to me. I draft Chief Thundercloud from the Nov draft. I now drop Chief Thundercloud and pick Gene Anderson. Is this ok?

    Memphis will add Gene Anderson. That will give me 34 wrestlers so I do not need to drop one

    Mid South Wrestling on Tour Oct. 1983

    What a busy week for JYD. The card at the Superdome is one to remember! Andre and Hansen seems like it is ready to explode. Mid South is a great read as the interviews are so full of fire and that energy carries right into the matches.

    CWA wrestling would like to thank the AWA for giving a well deserved title shot to Jerry Lawler.
  9. Loved the match ups! Reminds me of when I was a kid and I think this is why so many of us are involved. The territory system and especially Southern Wrestling was all about brawls and surprises. I get wait to find out who the tall man in the dark jacket was. Loved seeing Rich come back from the sneak attack!

    Memphis: CWA WRESTLING

    JHAWK, Thanks for the review. I am sorry if my writing was not clear. I tried to get the idea that his contract was breached because he lost on purpose. He actually breached his own contract on purpose to get out of Memphis.

    Memphis: CWA WRESTLING

    Thanks for the reviews. Goc, I am somewhat new to Memphis and I need to do some research on Eddie Marlin. Thanks for the guidance. I agree with Tommy GIlbert not being a young star but he might be the best some of my small gymnasium venues is going to see so I want them to feel like they are getting a decent show. As for the long show, I am sorry but I find it easier then writing two or 3 a week with info on the house shows.

    Memphis: CWA WRESTLING

    Continental Wrestling Association [sHOWN LIVE] 10/15/1983 MSC STUDIOS (Memphis) FEED RECEIVED IN WESTERN TENNESSEE, NORTHERN MISSISSIPPI EASTERN ARKANSAS, SOUTHEAST MISSOURI AND PARTS OF INDIANA AND KENTUCKY! Lance Russell: "Hello again, everybody! Lance Russell and Dave Brown here again for CWA Wrestling in Memphis, TN. Well we have so much to do tonight, let’s get right to Dave Brown with “This Week in the CWA” Dave Brown: Well thank you Lance and great to be with you and all the wonderful wrestling fans here in the CWA. Let me get all the fans caught up on all the action from this past week. · Let’s start with the World Series Match for the southern Tag Team Championship. The Bruise Brothers were leading 1-0 as we ran out of TV time last week. We promised you that tonight we would show you the conclusion of that match. Let’s pick up in the last minute of action from last week. It appeared the power of Porkchop Cash was going to prove too much for the Rock N Roll Express after he nailed Robert Gibson with a powerslam but Morton was able to make the save. As ref, Jerry Calhoun pushes Morton out of the ring, Graham comes in for a devastating flying elbow but Morton rolls out of the way. He somersaults away from a running lariat from Cash and rolls to his corner and makes the tag. Gibson enters the ring like “A house a fire.” Kicking, punching and raising hell. Morton is back on his feet and hits Graham with a dropkick that sends him out of the ring. Morton Irish whips Cash. Morton and Gibson hit a perfect Double Drop Kick to the jaw of Cash…. Morton for the pin. Ref Jerry Calhoun hits the mat to start the count. Instead of counting, Calhoun tapes Morton on the shoulder and points to the apron. Morton and Gibson seem confused! Calhoun is pushing Morton to his corner. Troy Graham is up and nails Gibson from behind with a low blow. He pulls Cash on top of Robert Gibson as finally, Ricky Morton realizes he is not the legal man and exits the ring. Calhoun turns back to the action and sees the cover. He hits the mat and begins the count. Morton tries to make the save but he is caught by Graham with a clothesline. 1….2…..3….. Dave Brown: And that is how the Bruise Brothers went up 2-0 in this World Series match. Rock N Roll Express fans that is not the worst of it. Last Wednesday in Evansville, the Bruise Brothers went up 3-0 and are now on the brink of The Sothern Tag Titles. Porkchop Cash caught Ricky Morton in a powerslam as Luke Graham and Robert Gibson were brawling on the outside. · It was a perfect week for members of Ernie Ladd’s Army: Big Red Reese destroyed Sweet Daddy O in Osceola, Arkansas while Sonny King had wins over Sweet Daddy O and Tommy Gilbert. As a team, Reese and King had 2 victories. One over Ken Raper and Buck Zumhoffe and the other over Scott Ferris and Buck Zumhoffe. · What a busy week the King, Jerry Lawler. This past Thursday he went nearly 30 minutes with Ernie Ladd. This match was for the Southern Heavyweight Title and the winner would also claim the nickname, The King of CWA Wrestling. This was a brawl from the beginning to the end and saw both men kick out of the others signature move. Lawler was able to survive The Big Boot and Ladd was able to break a sleeper hold from The King. The match ended with each wrestler on the outside of the ring for a Double Count-out. By the end, they seemed more interested in tearing each other apart than winning the match. I have already heard rumors of a rematch. If this was not enough, Lawler would fly across the country immediately following this match for an AWA WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE MATCH against Hulk Hogan in San Francisco, California. Again, this was a grueling match that would end in a 30 minute time limit draw. Lawler is definitely working his way up the national ranks and hopefully our current Southern Heavyweight Champion will someday be a World Champion. Due to this hectic schedule, Lawler will understandable not be in studio today. · As for the House of Humperdink, it was a far from perfect week. Last Monday, The House of Humperdink lost one of its members. At the Mid- South Coliseum it was Jerry The King Lawler, Austin Idol and a surprise teammate against Humperdink’s team of Duke Myers, Plowboy Frazier and Sabu, the Wildman. That surprise teammate of King and Idol turned out to be none other than the former WWF Heavyweight Champion, Superstar Billy Graham. The wrestler who lost the match would be forced to leave the CWA! The match was back and forth and as usually Humperdink tried his best to gain the upper hand for his team. While Superstar Graham and Duke Myers were the legal men in the ring, the ref’s attention was focused on Plowboy Frazier and Jerry Lawler who were in the middle of a brawl outside the ring. Humperdink saw his opportunity and tossed the walking stick to Myers. Idol seeing this races after Humperdink only to be attacked by Sabu. Now we have 4 wrestlers going at it outside the ring and Humperdink not sure which way to go. Myers grabs the stick and swings at Graham but he ducks at the last second. He retaliates with a boot to the midsection as the walking stick wildly flies out of the ring. Graham Irish Whips Myers into the ropes and catches him in a Massive Bearhug with those huge Pythons of his. The ref hears Myers screaming in agony and turns back to the action in the ring. Myers submits! Instead of consoling their teammate, The House of Humperdink turns on Myers and attacks him! The fan favorites see this and once again go after the House of Humperdink and chase them all the way to the locker-room. Myers must now begin the “walk of shame” all by himself as the fans cheer wildly that Humperdink has lost a member. · In Louisville on Wednesday, Jesse Barr did everything but win back his NWA Mid-American Title against Buddy Landell. While the fans were treated to a great match of skill, they were still unsure who to root for. That is until the end, when Landell did one of the more cowardly acts a champion could ever do. After numerous close pins by Barr, Landell appeared to roll out of the ring to catch his breath. Unfortunately for all involved, he never got back in the ring! The winner of the bout by count out was Jesse Barr but Landell remains the champion on a technicality. Barr is screaming for another title bout but not sure if he will get one. Also, can’t wait to see the fans reaction to Barr in his next appearance. · In Boonville, Arkansas, The Japanese Assassins won a brutal match against Tony Anthony and King Cobra when the Magic Dragon hit King Cobra with a baseball slide drop kick and followed it up with a rolling sleeper. This gives the Japanese Assassins a leg up to become the new #1 contender for the tag belts. · Lastly, Plowboy Frazier had a great week as a singles wrestler going 3-0 with wins over Brian Adias, Ken Raper and King Cobra. Lance Russell: Well thanks for that report Dave. And what do we have in store for the great fans here today? Dave Brown: "Well, Lance, 4 big matches today. First we have two newcomers as Lars Anderson takes on Randy Barber. In our second match, we will have an opening round match in our CWA Television Tournament. It will be King Cobra vs Sabu the Wildman. Next, it will be The Japanese Assassins vs Brian Adias and Tommy Gilbert. In our Main Event, we will see another opening round match in the CWA Television Tournament as the #1 seed Austin Idol takes on Sonny King. We will also hear from NWA Mid-American Champion, Buddy Landell, The Southern Tag Team Champions, The Rock N Roll Express, and what CWA Wrestling show would be complete without some words of wisdom from Sir Oliver Humperdink. Lance Russell: “We will get right to the action after this commercial break.” >> Lance Russell runs down the upcoming schedule for the CWA! October 15: Johnson City, TN at Freedom Hall October 16: Jonesboro, Arkansas at the ASU Arena October 17: Memphis, TN at the Mid-South Coliseum October 18: Evansville, IN at the Soldiers & Sailors Coliseum October 19: Louisville KY at the Louisville Gardens October 20: Nashville TN at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds October 21 Oxford, MS at the C M “Tadd” Smith Coliseum · Come see young stars like Tommy Gilbert, Brian Adias and Jesse Barr continue to try and climb the ranks of the CWA. · Watch tag team like the Japanese Assassins, TNT, King Cobra and Tony Anthony battle it out and make a push for a title shot. · Come and see if Jerry Lawler, Austin Idol and Superstar Graham can hold off The House of Humperdink and Ernie Ladd’s Army. · Title Matches at the Mid-South Coliseum include The World Series Match for the Southern Tag Team Title between The Rock N Roll Express and The Bruise Brothers and the rematch between Lawler and Ernie Ladd. · The Rock N Roll Express are also hoping they will see the Bruise Brothers in Nashville · This and much, much more at a CWA Arena near you Lance Russell: "We're back but before we get to the ring, let’s hear from the Southern Tag Team Champions, The Rock and Roll Express. Lance Russell: Well guys, I can see you are a little bit down. What are your thoughts about being down 3-0 in your World Series Match to the Bruise Brothers? Robert Gibson: To be honest Lance, we are not sure what to think. I am unsure if we have lost three matches in a row to anyone and now this has happened at the worst time. Ricky Morton: We have won lots of titles and we have lost lots of titles. The one that Robert and I hold near and dear to our hearts is the AWA Southern Tag Team Title. With one more loss, we will not only give up the belts but we will not have an opportunity to regain them for a full year. That is something that does not sit well with us. Robert Gibson: We understand we are down 3-0 but we have not given up. We need the fans this week at the Mid-South Coliseum on Monday and in Nashville at the Tennessee State Fair Grounds on Thursday to really be behind us. You CWA fans are the best fans in all the wrestling world. We will never quit on you and please don’t quit on us. Thanks Lance. Lance Russell: Well good luck guys. You have a monumental task in front of you. The Bruise Brothers are no joke. Ok, let’s get to the ring for our first match. Dave Brown: "In the ring to now, to my right, weighing in at 237 pounds, from Macon, Georgia, Randy Barber. And making his way to ring now from, standing 6’1 and weighing in at 253, from St. Cloud, Minnesota, Lars Anderson. And your referee is Jerry Calhoun. Match #1: Lars Anderson, sporting a Fu Man Chu Mustache and Wild Blonde locks, really makes short work of Randy Barber. From the opening bell, Anderson just wore Barber out. From hammerlocks and rear chin locks, Barber did not know what body part to protect next. Anderson, after a few uppercuts, was able to catch Barber in an armbar and force the submission. Lance Russell: Well Mr. Anderson, that was very impressive for your first match here in CWA wrestling. Lars Anderson: Of course it was Lance. It may be my first time here in Memphis but this is not my first rodeo. I have been champion everywhere I have gone. Whether it be in the NWA, the AWA, Hawaii or even Australia, wherever I wrestle, Championships come to me. And another thing Mr. Russell, I know you have done your homework on me. Lance Russell: Well I will say this, you do come from one of the great wrestling families. Lars Anderson: Not one of the best families. The best wrestling family. The Andersons or the Minnesota Wrecking Crew, strike fear in our opponents by just the mention of our names. The Anderson pedigree is what all wrestler wish they had. Lance Russell: Well thanks for stopping by Lars Anderson: I am not done yet. One last thing, I am putting everyone here in CWA on warning. From Lawler, to Idol, to Superstar Graham. Get in my way, and you are going to get kicked right between the teeth. Make no bones about it, I will be champion in the CWA before long! Lance Russell: Well he is one man I would not like on my bad side. Ok, nest to the interview desk is the NWA Mid-American Champion is “The Nature Boy,” Buddy Landell Lance Russell: Well Mr. Landell you never cease to amaze me. How could you cheat your former friend and partner, Jesse Barr out of a fair match for the Mid-American Title? I mean you just took the coward’s way out by leaving in the middle of the match. Buddy Landell: Lance how you can be so bright and dumb at the same time. I agree with your first part. I never cease to amaze anyone. I mean just look at me compared to all those people out there in the audience. I am young, in great shape and a champion all before my 24th birthday. Girls want me and guys want to be me. But as far as cheating Jesse out of a fair title shot, you have lost me. I mean I beat him from pillar to post and just felt sorry for him. Jesse himself is only 23 years old and I did not want to ruin his self esteem any more by continue the beating, so I just walked out of the ring. I allowed Jesse to get the victory while I kept the belt. A win for me and a win for my good friend Jesse Barr. Lance Russell: Well now I have heard everything. Jesse Barr: Landell you are nothing but a yellow bellied coward. You know I had you beat the other night and you ran just to save the belt and what was left of your hide. Buddy Landell: Wait a minute Jesse. I understand you are frustrated by the outcome the other night. I mean you tried you best to regain the title you had lost to me. We all know that I am clearly the better wrestler Lance Russell: Come on Buddy, that’s enough of your nonsense. Buddy Landell: Jesse, We are so much alike and your friendship means a lot to me. In the long run, everybody knows I am a future World Champion. At best, you will win a few regional championships during your career. I would like to offer an olive branch and give you one last shot at the NWA Mid-American Title. Lance Russell: What are you up to Buddy? Buddy Landell: I just want to give Jesse Barr a fair title match and I want it right now. Let’s get Jerry Jarrett to sanction this title match right now and give this studio audience a great match between the two best young wrestlers this organization has. Lance Russell: Well, we need to take a break and we will sort all this out before we are back from commercial. Jesse are you ok with all of this. Jesse Barr: Ok with it. This is the best news I have had since I lost the belt. Thank you Buddy for this opportunity. Lance Russell: Ok fans, we will be right back! >> Lance Russell runs down the upcoming schedule for the CWA! October 17: Johnson City, TN at Freedom Hall October 18: Jonesboro, Arkansas at the ASU Arena October 19: Memphis, TN at the Mid-South Coliseum October 13: Evansville, IN at the Soldiers & Sailors Coliseum October 21: Louisville KY at the Louisville Gardens October 22: Nashville TN at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds October 16: Oxford, MS at the C M “Tadd” Smith Coliseum · Come see young stars like Tommy Gilbert, Brian Adias and Jesse Barr continue to try and climb the ranks of the CWA. · Watch tag team like the Japanese Assassins, TNT, King Cobra and Tony Anthony battle it out and make a push for a title shot. · Come and see if Jerry Lawler, Austin Idol and Superstar Graham can hold off The House of Humperdink and Ernie Ladd’s Army. · Title Matches at the Mid-South Coliseum include The World Series Match for the Southern Tag Team Title between The Rock N Roll Express and The Bruise Brothers and the rematch between Lawler and Ernie Ladd. · The Rock N Roll Express are also hoping they will see the Bruise Brothers in Louisville Lance Russell: Ok fans, It is all set. Contracts have been signed and we have an extra match today for the Mid-American Title between Mr. Natura, Buddy Landell and Jesse Barr. Both wrestlers are in the ring and we are set to go. MATCH 2: Jesse Barr and Buddy Landell lock up collar and elbow. Jesse Barr pushes Landell back and Landell hits the mat. He seems to be laying there and not moving. Barr looks confused. He is also very cautious as he know not to trust Landell. Landell is obviously playing opossum. Barr creeps to Landell and lays on top of him for the pin. Jerry Calhoun hits the mat and begins the count. 1…..2……3……. Jerry Jarrett: What was that Landell? You just threw the match. You lost on purpose. There is no way Barr pushed you hard enough to do any damage. Buddy Landell: Did you say I just lost on purpose? Jerry Jarrett: That is exactly what you did. Was this just because Barr is your friend? Buddy Landell: No not at all, this is because you are such a cheapskate. Jerry Jarrett: What are you talking about? Buddy Landell: Well I have a contract with CWA that runs through 1985. I have asked numerous times for you to renegotiate that contract. I mean I am a star. All you say is you are too young. You are not a big enough draw. Jerry Jarrett: Well that is all true. Buddy Landell: Well Southeastern Wrestling believes I am worth a lot more money than you do. They said I am World Championship material. I have been offered me a contract that will pay me more than double my salary here and maybe even get an AWA World Title shot before I am 25. Here, whenever I ask about World Title shots, the only name to come up is Jerry Lawler! I mean this company is more than Lawler. Jerry Jarrett: Well enough of your crying into that microphone. Of course this company is more than Lawler and if you work hard you may become a star one day. Right now you are just an immature, egoistical little brat. Jerry Jarrett: You have a contract hear for another 15 months and I refuse to allow you to break it. If you do, CWA lawyers will be all over you. Forget what Southeastern has offered to pay you. You will owe me triple that for breach of contract. Buddy Landell: If I wrestle one more sanctioned match here in CWA before 1986, you will be in breach of contract. Jerry Jarrett: What are you talking about Landell? Buddy Landell: Well all wrestlers here in CWA have contracts that include a match integrity clause. If we lose a match on purpose, the contract becomes null and void. This clause was obviously broken by me tonight. You even said it yourself. You said there was no way Barr pushed hard enough to get pinned. I threw the match! I am out of this redneck cow town. Just look at all the uneducated, backwards hillbillies in the audience tonight. They don’t deserve my greatness here in Memphis. Maybe I will see you in 1986 as the AWA World Champion! Maybe I will buy a ticket to one of your shows down in Arkansas or Mississippi and step over the barricade and kick the butts of your CWA wrestlers just to remind you of how could I am! Until then, Mr. Jarrett, just keep dreaming of me! Your greatest wrestler has left the building! Lance Russell: Well that one came out of left field. Let’s go the ring for our next match as we all take a moment to figure out what just happened. Dave? Dave Brown: This is an opening round match in the CWS Television Title Tournament. In the ring to my right, from right here in Memphis, TN, at 6’1 and weighing in at 240 pounds, King Cobra. Dave Brown: And making his way to the ring, accompanied by Sir Oliver Humperdink, from parts unknown, standing 6’0 and weighing 252, Sabu, The Wildman. MATCH #3: One of the more brutal matches that you will see on TV. Sabu used all sorts of chops, Flying Savat –like kicks and illegal tactics that included closed fists punches, choke holds and biting. King Cobra was able to stay in the match by taking a few breathers outside the ring. For once, Humperdink did not interfere. He wants a championship in his stable so badly that he did not want to risk a DQ. After an Irish whip by Sabu, King Cobra ducked under a huge chop and came off the ring and caught Sabu with a cross body block. King Cobra decided what was good for the goose was good for the gander and started hitting Sabu with a full arsenal of punches. After a huge flying head scissors, King Cobra snuck up behind Sabu and caught him in the Cobra Clutch. Humperdink was beside himself and as he saw Sabu going out. He signaled for the rest of the House to attack. The Japanese Assassins hit the ring and began to pummel King Cobra. The Magic Dragon placed King Cobra in his own finisher, the Rolling Leg Sleeper and out goes Cobra. Goro Tsurami continues to kick and punch King Cobra. Ref Jerry Calhoun quickly called for the bell. King Cobra wins by DQ but King Cobra needs help before he suffers serious injuries. Superstar Graham and Austin Idol hit the ring and the House of Humperdink make a quick retreat. Austin Idol: Enough is enough. I am sick and tired of all the nonsense going on here in the CWA. Humperdink knows his stable is just a bunch of clowns who can’t fight man to man. Sabu, Assassins, you want a match just ask. Superstar and I will fight you one on one, two on two it doesn’t matter. Superstar Graham: Don’t even think about leaving me out of this party. I am the Superstar and order will be restored to Memphis. Humperdink you better rethink your zip code. I am coming for you. One night in my world and your shack lost Duke Myers. Keep coming to my world and you will be out of goons in no time. Austin Idol: And Ladd, don’t think we have forgotten you are your so called army. Ladd, you are stirring up a lot of emotions here that don’t need to be stirred up. Your racist remarks have gone too far. You said Jarrett and myself planned a loaded coin game against you? Are you for real? I am coming for you and your army. I got Sonny King tonight and he will feel the wrath of my power. Ernie Ladd! Soon your army will be destroyed and it will just be you and I left. We have unfinished business. Lance Russell: Well good luck gentlemen and we need to take a break. As we go to commercial check out the latest CWA rankings. A RANKINGS AS OF 10/14 SINGLES: 1.

Your groups seems a little smaller this week. I mean did you ever think Superstar Graham was going to be Lawler and Idol’s partner the other night. Losing Duke Myers must be putting a strain on your organization. Humperdink: Shut up pencil nose! Duke Myers was a loser! Always was, always will be. He was only a body to fill numbers. He never was on a path to a championship. We used him as a sacrificial lamb. Trust me Russell, it is addition by subtraction. Just look at my stable now. The future tag team champions, The Japanese Assassins. The future Southern Heavyweight Champion, Plowboy Frazier and the Sabu, the future Mid- American Champion. Also, as you know, I am always looking to add members to my stable. Within the next few weeks, Duke Myers will be replaced by at least one wrestler who will be so far superior to Duke Myers that the entire CWA will fear the House of Humperdink more than they already do. Lance Russell: We will have to wait and see about that. Why don’t you just worry about your next match? I mean your Japanese Assassins will have their hands full with Adias and Gilbert. They are on a roll of late and have had success against your organization in the past few weeks. Humperdink: Russell, watch and see. This will be over before you know it. Magic Dragon and Goro Tsurumi are unstoppable. Lance Russell: Ok then! Let’s get to the ring. Dave Brown: Ladies and Gentleman, this match is to determine a new #1 contender for the Southern Tag Team titles. Remember, after the Bruise Brothers and the Rock N Roll Express finish their World Series Match, they will be ineligible for a rematch. Making their way to the ring, the #3 Ranked team, The Japanese Assassins accompanied to the ring by Sir Oliver Humperdink. Already in the ring to my right, the 4 ranked team, the newly nick-named team, TNT, Brian Adias and Tommy Gilbert. Our referee is Jerry Calhoun. Match #4 For once Humperdink is right. The Japanese Assassins make quick work of TNT. Adias had some early success against Tsurami but after the first tags by each team, the Assassins took complete control of the match. Using many quick tags and double team moves, The Assassins had Tommy Gilbert in a world of trouble. Magic Dragon whipped Gilbert into the corner and caught him with a knife hand chop. Gilbert went down and Dragon hit the ropes at full speed and caught Gilbert with a baseball slide dropkick. He followed that up with a Rolling Leg Sleeper. Adias tried to make the save but was caught by Tsurami. Ref Jerry Calhoun called for the bell as Gilbert goes out. Lance Russell: Well maybe Humperdink is right. That’s the best the Japanese Assassins have looked. Maybe a championship is in their future. We will be right back. >> Lance Russell runs down the upcoming schedule for the CWA!

In the ring to my right, a member of Ernie Ladd’s Army, Sonny King. Dave Brown: And in the ring to my left, from Las Vegas, Nevada, The Universal Heartthrob, Austin Idol. Your referee is Jerry Calhoun. Match #5: Idol and Sonny King will have to go it alone tonight as Jerry Jarrett has barred Jerry Lawler and Ernie Ladd and his army from ringside. The match starts with King refusing to break cleanly after both wrestlers were in the ropes. In this match, King is more of a boxer than a wrestler. He hits Idol with all kinds of punches including a Rocking Bolo Punch. Idol is in danger until his is able to get King off his feet with a big bodyslam. Idol begins to wear down the legs of King by nailing him with a few elbow drops and ankle locks. Idol catches King in a sleeper and it looks over. King is able to force his way to the ropes and the ref calls for the break. Sonny is practically out on his feet. Idol drags King to the center of the ring. He picks up one of King’s Legs and steps around the foot. He is going for the Las Vegas Leglock. (Figure 4) He locks in the other leg and falls to the mat. He is squeezing with all his might. King writhing in pain, slaps the mat and submits to Idol. Lance Russell: Wait a minute ladies and gentlemen. 4 of Memphis’ finest have walked out to the ring. Lance Russell: Jerry, can you shed some light on what is happening right now. Jerry Jarrett: It would be best if that came from the man to my right. This is Memphis Police Detective, James Earl Wright and he has a very serious matter to inform us of. Det. Wright: I do apologize for making a scene here on live television, but I must inform you these officers are here to arrest Sonny King. Lance Russell: Can you give us any more information? I mean this is live television. If you do not tell us anything else, the rumors are going to run rampant through this city. If you have tuned in at all over the last few weeks, there is a racial powder keg about to blow here in Memphis and the CWA. Det. Wright: I understand your request and even though it is highly unusual, we do not want to cause any more problems. The reasons Sonny King is being arrested is for inciting a riot, destruction of public and private property, and for his actions in a hate crime. Lance Russell: Those are some serious allegations. Det. Wright: Well we have 3 police officers who witnessed Sonny King’s actions in The Memphis Health and Science Park last night. Mr. King led a rally of young black males in that park and told them to rise up to the authority and stop allowing the white man to keep them down. He then took a Confederate Flag from the park’s entrance and burned it. This really seemed to excite the young black males who seemed ready for violence. If this was not enough, Mr. King took a can a black spray paint and defaced the statue of Nathan Bedford Forest. Lance Russell: Those are some serious crimes Detective. Det. Right: Lance, they are Very serious. Memphis is a city about to boil over and Sonny King is the cause of this. Officers please arrest Mr. King. Jerry Jarrett: Well this is a very unfortunate situation for the CWA. We will examine this and have more information for you next week. Lance Russell: Well Jerry, I just don’t understand in today’s day and age, why people stoop to such low levels. Sonny King had a promising career and might have just thrown it away. I believe he may have a long time to rethink his actions. I mean especially in the city where Dr. King lost his life, can’t we all learn to get along. Well, sorry fans that you had to witness this but we are out of time for this week. Hopefully next week, we can let our wrestling ability be the focus of the show. On a positive note, Austin Idol is now in the semifinals for the TV Championship. Voice Over: "The announcers on this program are selected and paid by parties other than this station, namely, the promoters of Championship Wrestling."

    Love the build up to your title matches and feuds and never sure what way you are going to go. Can the RW get over the Wild Bills and Can Lord Humongous beat Hogan.

    Spent some time catching up on your shows. You're ability to write interviews makes you shows a great read. Also, you never know what is coming next. Also, the Texas Dynasty is the perfect heel combo. Why do we tune into shows each and every week? It is because we want to see those we hate and how are the going to make up mad this week and maybe once, just once, they will get what's coming to them. That is the Texas Dynasty.
