    Very entertaining house show. Liked all the big name match-ups. The DQ's and interference just seemed right for the time.

    Really fun event. Love the creative and all the added stipulations. Can't wait to see what type of match Idol and Cooley call for in the next big event

    Can't wait for Nikta-Savage! Great match between the Andersons and The Rockers. The Rockers were pretty big in 87 and this could turn out to be a nice feud of contrasting styles

    I think you have a great understanding of your wrestlers strengths and weaknesses. Watching Velvet allow Winona to wear herself out shows the experience that Velvet has. Some with Medusa using all of her strength to hoist up Rhonda. Nice show. I wonder if Medusa's two belts well meet Richter for her one. You have a bunch of wrestlers at the top tier but these two could make some big time money for WWW!

    Awesome opening to Superstars! Can't believe how much work you put into that. Really looking forward to Wrestlemania.

    Nice TV show with a big push to Christmas Chaos. Must say that one of my favorite moments was the name of your jobbers in the first match with Will The Thrill and Boogaloo Shrimp I am glad you picked up Mark Fleming. From what I have read about him, he was a really good technician with a good appearance. Wonder why he never made it bigger? Maybe he was awful on the mic... not sure but glad he is part of the NWA. Enjoyed the segment with the Horseman at the Night Club. Ole in the club must be a sight to see. Promo of the night was Paul Jones, Bass and Bart. Nice job.

    AWA Major League Wrestling

    I thought the TV show was great. I thought you nailed the promo with Rich and Lance. We might call it the AWA here in Dawn of War but you are doing awesome with throwing it some of that Memphis feel as well. First we got Lawler and Idol and now Wildfire vs Lawler. Must admit, I am a huge Wildfire fan so rooting for Tommy here! I hope the Bruise Brothers are not done. They have been great for you. Mulligan is one scary dude when he is mad. Iceman might want to leave town now! Not sure who is the real heel in the Bock vs Hennig feud but I love it. Bock does such a great job at riding the fence that he can do it all. This match is a classic and might give us a glimpse into who is really going to be top dog in the AWA! Steamboat is really showing his greatness here as he is becoming the type of champion who can just get in the ring with anyone or with any style and come out looking great. Crazy Carlos and Steamboat is going to be great again. As for the card in Jackson, I thought it was a very realistic house show that was balanced and didn't give away to much while also having a huge main event. The epic battle of the O's was great. The 3 DQ's as we led up to the main event was perfect and something I forget to do a lot. You gave the crowd some quality matches but the finishes allowed for those angles to continue. I LOVE Hennig with the grab of the tights. He is so perfect built that he can do anything. Steamboat and Hennig... COIN FLIP!

    Championship Wrestling from Florida

    Great show. I really enjoyed reading it. Usually, a Loser-Leave Town Match occurs after months and months of a nasty feud but you have pulled it off in one match and if fit perfectly. Your whole "Florida" issue really makes sense! Great job! I also love how many fines and suspensions we use in Dawn of War to hype up a situation. I don't recall this as being the case when I was young and I guess that is because rosters were small big stars sold the tickets. Your suspension of Backlund adds so much to his match with Herc! Another really well done angle. Can't wait to here Hercs side of all of this. Too bad wrestling in 1986 couldn't have added some of the things that we have to the sport. Instead, it started to go the way of VInce and Sports Entertainment and I lost all interest. Great card in Ft. Lauderdale with a lot of cool stipulations. Great job making Florida very interesting. I remember trying to play with the antennas and the tv in my NY home trying to get Florida to come in on UHF TV. I think I would still be fiddling today with it to see some of your cool angles.

    Continental Championship Wrestling

    Great opening segment. Landel, Slick and Bad News were awesome with Platt and RPG plus it got us all excited for tag team turmoil and Christmas Clash. I am really looking forward to all the events but I can't wait to see what you do with Idol. Mr. Gulf Coast is going to be huge here. I might be heard to keep a title off him for long. Dusty vs Brody is $$$$! Taylor and Travis is another fun and interesting angle that you have done really well with. Nice job. JYD and Olympia for the titles. Can't wait to see the outcome.

    NWA

    Nice set of house shows this week. You can really tell your pecking order with these results. While all the cards were great, my favorite was Hampton, Virginia. Each main event on all three cards was awesome but when you throw on Nikita and Savage, that card goes to Must See!

    Continental Championship Wrestling

    Really fun TV show this week as CCW is having no trouble moving on from the NWA. The storylines and promos were awesome as always. Embry was a good first segment and a good way to bring attention to the U.S. Jr title. Slick-Stud Stable-Ron Fuller-Bad News-Mystery partner-loyalty questions- The perfect soap opera for guys. Can't wait to see how this all plays out. Sawyers vs The Rich cousins...just seems right Bullet with some strong words for Skanky Sherri... wonder how he will try to finish off Adonis without the sleeper. Khan just seems like a better bodyguard then Ron Slinker but I hope Alberto doesn't get made at him like he did Slink. On to the Civic Center... Nice start for Embry getting a win over an Armstrong in his first match... Nice win for the Sawyers. I bet those Rich boys wish they were still on good terms with Wildfire. Amazing what can be found under the ring... to bad for Taylor that tonight it happened to be a guitar. The Bullet might need more then a school boy roll up for a finisher if he faces Adonis again. YES..... IDOL IS HERE!!!

    NWA

    Great first edition of the Power Hour. It seems great minds think a like as we both have gotten rid of our regional titles in similar fashion. It will be fun to watch Race go for the gold again and to see the Youngbloods go after Foley's men. I think Matt Borne is going to be be great here in the NWA. Can't wait to see what you do with him.

    Here is a way-to-early list of rookies for 1988. I admit that we are getting out of my comfort zone by 1988 and I need some help. Some of these wrestlers might be already in our game but under different names. Also, wrestlers coming from other countries and wrestling 10 matches in either the U.S. or Canada will be part of this rookie class. If you know of anyone who should be in, let us know. 1988 ROOKIES Al Farat Anthony Durante Bart Sawyer Bert Centento Big Money Marcus Bobby Blaze Bobby Starr Brad Anderson Brian Lawler Bubba Monroe Chaz Taylor Cheryl Russo Chuck Williams Crash Holly Dennis Allen Dennis Knight Don Callis Doug Stahl Dustin Rhodes Gangrel George Hines Gary Albright Gary Wolfe GQ Status James Dundee Jason Jordan Jerry Lynn Jimmy Lee Johnny Weiss Lou Perez Louis Mucciolo (The Zodiac) Magnificent Mimi Mike Enos Mike Samson Perry Saturn Raven Reno Riggins Rod Price Roxy Astor Terry Power (Tori) Tommy Cairo Tony Roy Tony Ulysses Wayne Bloom Zeus

    UWF

    DEC.5 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH There is no denying that Cowboy Bill Watts and Ernie “Big Cat” Ladd get under each other’s skin but this week it seems to have reached another level. Ernie Ladd has spent the week saying that the only reason his team of Bad News Allen and Bad LeRoy Brown lost to Dick Murdoch and Rocky Johnson and had to leave the UWF was because that Big Dummy Watts is corrupt and biased. Maybe because Watts has been hearing negative comments about himself from all over the wrestling world lately, he was a little on edge at this week’s TV taping from Ft. Worth. When Ladd, on national TV, criticized Watts, Watts exploded. The two men, who have faced off in the ring for years, had to be separated from wrestlers from the back. Ladd vowed to get a new wrestler in his stable that would prove unstoppable to the “cheating cowboy; somebody who hated Watts even more then he did. Watts asked Ladd “why find a new wrestler to manage… why not do the job yourself.” And there you have it… Last Stand 86 in Reunion Arena in Dallas on December 26 sees Bill Watts facing off against Ernie Ladd. While Ladd has not been in the ring in nearly a year, he won’t need to review any wrestling moves. This match will see each man bring out a year’s worth of hatred into one huge brawl. TWO FRONT WAR So, who do Terry Gordy and Dr. Death go after first? The choices are almost limitless! Let’s look back at where are the problems started. It was last July at the Great American Bash in the Superdome in New Orleans where Freebird Michael Hayes nearly blinded Terry Gordy with some sort of cream to the eyes. It was just this past Thanksgiving in the Omni in Atlanta that Ted Dibiase turned on his former World Champion tag team partner Dr. Death as Dibiase joined Sheik Adnan Al-Kassie’s Army. So do these two go after Michael Hayes and the rest of the Freebirds or do they set their eyes on getting revenge on Ted Dibiase and the rest of the Shiek’s Army. Both Gordy and Dr. Death know the right answer because they have others to think about. During this past week’s interview with Jim Ross, they reminded everyone that their good friends, Scott Casey and Sunshine, have also had to deal with the Freebirds of late. They reminded us of the $25,000 bounty placed on the career of Scott Casey by Precious, the valet of the Freebirds and the pig slop dumped on Sunshine at Starrcade by that so-called woman valet of Jimmy Garvin. So, to Gordy and Dr. Death, the answer is simple… Freebirds first … Dibiase and the Sheik next. It seems that Bill Watts agrees with Terry Gordy and Dr. Death as he signed a 6-Man Loser Leave Town Match at Last Stand between The Freebirds (Michael Hayes, Jimmy Garvin and Buddy Roberts) against Gordy, Dr. Death and Scott Casey. Jim Ross explains how grateful he would be to anyone who could rid the UWF of Michael Hayes but how somber it would feel around here if Terry Gordy or Ted Dibiase took the loss. TITLE VS TITLE To Bill Watts, the term champion and the brand UWF go hand in hand as they both refer to the best of the best. As he would like to expand the UWF all across the nation and maybe even Canada, he doesn’t see the purpose in regional titles. With that being said, the Mid-South Title is obsolete. Rocky Johnson has been a great Mid-South title holder and it would not be fair to just strip him of a title that is being vacated. Therefore, at Last Stand 86, it will be Title vs Title…. The North American Title vs the Mid-South Title. Jake “the Snake” Roberts vs Rocky “Soul Man” Johnson. Winner, and there must be a winner, is the North American Champion. Both Rocky Johnson and Jake “the Snake” are very confident they will come out on top! Jake “the Snake”: It doesn’t matter who it is. It could be Rufus Jones. It could be Dick Murdoch… Heck… it could be the UWF Champion Hacksaw Butch Reed. They all think they are fighters. They all think they can knock me down with one punch. Well, truth be told, none of them ever have. This time in Dallas, it will be your turn to learn Rocky Johnson. You will use your Soul Man Shuffle or what ever other silly name you come up with for an illegal punch… but trust me… after you are done dancing around, I will drop your head on the mat… DDT style and that will be the last dance you ever do! Rocky Johnson: First, I want to thank Bill Watts for the opportunity to face Jake Roberts for the UWF North American Title. I know Jake Roberts is one tough individual but I guarantee you that I will give it everything I got and I am pretty sure that will be enough to defeat The Snake. Chop the head off a snake and it dies. I think the Soul Man Shuffle will do just that! THE ROCK n ROLL RPM’S MIGHT HAVE TO FACE THE MUSIC Whether it is just the fact that Ricky Gibson is the brother of Rock n Roll Express member Robert Gibson, or some other motive but it is obvious that Mike Davis and Tommy Lane have set their goal on eliminating Ricky. Numerous times over the past month, they have attacked Gibson after a match. They have thrown him into the steel ring post. They have clobbered him with chairs and this week in Jackson, they even threw him through a popcorn machine at the concession stand. Well, it seems like Ricky Gibson has help. Koko Ware rushed out from the locker room after the popcorn machine incident with a chair of his own. He went full tilt after the RPM’s. While he did not catch them this time, he vows to make sure Davis and Lane don’t have a numbers advantage anytime they are near Ricky Gibson. Koko has even gotten Bill Watts to sign a Texas Tornado Match (All 4 Men in the Ring at Once) between himself and Ricky Gibson vs The Rock n Roll RPM’s at Last Stand BIG VAN VADER…. MAN OR MONSTER No matter who it’s been so far… Big Van Vader has destroyed them. Most matches last less than a minute with the wrestler being stretchered out after a Sit Down Powerbomb; the most devastating move in the UWF today. As scary as that sounds… Kevin Sullivan; Vader’s handler, often demands that Vader execute another powerbomb after the match is over. Neither man seems to care if they are disqualified. As Sullivan told us last time. The only time when Big Van Vader is happy is when he is punishing someone. In fact, lately it has been 2 or 3 men at a time in Handicap Matches all over the UWF. Last week on TV, the Patriots came to the rescue of Larry Winters and Tom Stone who were just man-handled by the monster. Both Patriots, said that Vader should take on someone his own size. Both men were pretty sure they could take on Vader in a One-on-match at Last Stand. This brought Kevin Sullivan back out, with his eerie laugh. Sullivan accepted their challenge with one minor adjustment… Big Van Vader will wrestle both Patriots in a Tag Team Match at Last Stand 86! Jim Ross reminded us that the Patriots are one of the best tag teams in the entire world as he reminded up that they just wrestled for the NWA Tag Team Title at Starrcade. Ross already knew that Big Van Vader was one of the toughest men he had ever seen, but Ross said that if Vader beat both Patriots, he is more than a man. He would be a MONSTER. A NEW FACE FOR THE UWF Les Thatcher’s big talk is now UWF’s gain. When Thatcher decided to take a stand a say that any Continental Championship Wrestling star who showed up to Starrcade would lose his job, I bet that he never thought that an Armstrong would ignore his words. Well, that is exactly what happened when Brad Armstrong decided it was unfair of the tyrant Thatcher to deny him an opportunity to become the World Junior Heavyweight Champion. Even though Armstrong did not win the title, he had every right to go to Starrcade. When you look at Armstrong’s title match against Eric Embry, we see another miscarriage of justice as Embry had a lot of outside help to retain his title. As Armstrong was about to win the title, he was attacked by Doug Somers, Sean Royal and Paul Roma. Even though Brad won the bout, he did not get the title. He also got no justice when he complained about the result to Jim Crocket who had just completed a coup against Bill Watts. Armstrong, extremely frustrated with Thatcher and Crockett, turned to Bill Watts who was more than happy to bring Brad to the UWF. Recently, Watts met with Ted Turner who agreed to a new TV contract for the UWF on WTBS. Part of this deal included reinstating the TV title to make sure the fans at home get quality mates every week. Watts agreed with Brad Armstrong that he was screwed at Starrcade. He agreed to give him a chance to be the first UWF TV Champion as he will face “The Mighty Yankee” Billy Jack Strong at Last Stand. Brad Armstrong could not have been more appreciative of Bill Watts and let everyone know this is how a wrestling promotion should be run. He just wished the rest of the Armstrong clan could see the light and come on over to the UWF. A MILLION DOLLAR CHAMP? It seems like Sheik Adnan Al Kassie’s plan to control the UWF is right on schedule. When he gave Ted Dibiase a million dollars to join his stable, he was sure he found the man who could bring him the world title. This week in Jackson, Dibiase was able to outlast Captain Redneck in an epic battle to become the #1 contender to Hacksaw Reed’s UWF title. Many in the business say that it is Dibiase’s title to lose. They expressed how difficult it will be for Reed to defeat Dibiase as he is not only one of the most skilled wrestlers in the world, but the numbers game might make him unstoppable. Whether it is the Sheik, Hercules Ayala, Demolition or Jake “the Snake,” Reed is going to need eyes in the back of his head at Last Stand to retain his title. Quotes from around the UWF “The Mighty Yankee” Billy Jack Strong on his upcoming UWF TV Title match with Brad Armstrong Armstrong, I heard you talking about how you want to win the TV title… how you want to be the face of the UWF. Understand one thing, all you are is a face. Your body doesn’t compare to mine. You are weak! I’m going to lock you in the full nelson and bend you in half like a pretzel. The Mighty Yankee will run through Dallas like Sherman did Atlanta. Michael Hayes on the Freebirds 6-Man Loser Leave Town Match against Terry Gordy, Dr. Death and Scott Casey at Last Stand “Not sure when the last snowstorm hit Dallas, Texas but a blizzard is coming on Christmas. White out conditions … travel at a complete stand still. It will be so bad that Santa Claus will be stranded in downtown Dallas. That’s right, old Saint Nick will have to spend the night in Reunion Arena and he will still be there as Last Stand gets under way. Santa… I’m telling you now that Michael Hayes has been very naughty this year and I don’t need any gifts, but I am about to give the people in Dallas the gift of a lifetime. That’s right… when I hit the bulldog on Terry Gordy, he will be out of Dallas forever. People of Dallas, I think you remember the Ghost of Christmas past… the VonErichs… I sent them out of town and now… Terry Gordy will be the ghost of Christmas present… gone forever from UWF Hacksaw Butch Reed on his UWF title match against Ted Dibiase at Last Stand… “I’ve been told the odds are against me. I’ve been told that Ted Dibiase is the future of the UWF. I’ve been told the Sheik has too many weapons. Well, listen up everyone. I don’t pay attention to what anyone else says. I’m coming to Dallas as the UWF champion, and I plan on leaving there as the champion. Ted Dibiase can and will be beat and Sheil, I’m warning you know, get in my way and you will be spending a whole heck of a lot of your money on paying some hospital bills.

    AWA Major League Wrestling

    Great transition from SuperClash! I think you hit the nail on the head with Colon joining Iaukea! I enjoyed using Kirby when I made up the Midwest Mafia and I think he will be fun for you also. He has a pretty good stable with some toughness and personalities. Looking back at our game here, I think Iceman has gone from babyface to heel more than anyone. I loved him as a babyface when I was a kid but for some reason, he has been a better heel in Dawn of War. Enjoy this new stable. It is going to be a wild ride. Bock vs Hennig... WOW. Usually I can get an idea of who might be higher up on the pecking order but here... I have no clue. This is going to be awesome! Tommy Rich vs Jerry Lawler... Love it!! AWA has plenty of great storylines heading into 1987!

    Championship Wrestling from Florida

    One of the reasons I love wrestling from the 80's were the promos. They just seemed so real and not so scripted like today. I think you nailed all the promos today! Texas Red came off so sincere that the fans would gave eaten that up! Backlund's sudden anger in his promo was awesome. I must admit that I was disappointed as I thought Backlund was going to be a babyface in Florida. Not disappointed in you but that I was going to miss out on someone who has become one of my favorite heels in the game. When he said "I WAS SPEAKING GORDON!!", I was really pumped for the future! Also, Lightfoot, Avi and Samoa better be careful! The Cartel is dangerous. I heard once in an interview with Mike Graham that his father had a conversation with Vince McMahon on if there was anyone in Florida that he could put the WWF title on and Graham said Steve Keirn. For some reason, Vince wanted Backlund instead but this goes to show you what Keirn meant to Florida Wrestling. Nice to see him getting another run here. Awesome show as always.

    Really good shows after San Diego! I like how Cornette and Eaton seem a little lost without Dennis. I think we need to watch this one closely as I have a feeling something big is about to happen. Really classy act by PCW to allow Bam Bam, Bully, Eddie Gilbert and Missy Hyatt to say their goodbyes on the air. Looking forward to seeing what is next for PCW. Awesome job in 86!

    Championship Wrestling from Florida

    Awesome show! All the fans in the Sportatorium would have left knowing they just got their money's worth. I really like how you use the Cartel. The heat they must get! I was really looking forward to the Backlund-Poffo match and it didn't disappoint. Hope they match up again. And the build of Texas Red continues! The Heart Puch is one scary move and perfect for his "future." Again to me, Duggan vs Herc could go on for months! Great job. I think the one thing we do here is have people wrestle once or twice and then move on. Looking at some event cards from the 80's, they might have wrestled 20-40 times. Florida has become really interesting and is a great read.

    Awesome Spercard with the stars taking over. Richter was like a wild woman all throughour the show and Moretti and Combs paid a huge price. The best part of this is that we might get Richter and Moretti! Again, awesome show.
