    Wonder Women Wrestling

    Great job with the slow play on the angle with the problems within the Monsters! This is going to be fun to follow. Moretti is now the owner of 3 belts... looking forward to see how this all plays out. So many options... she has 3 feuds at once.... a title unification... one big challenger for all 3.... can't wait to see where this goes. Peggy Lee and Richter stay on top but for how long... another great angle as I think we all feel Richter values th songles title more than the tag belt. Will this sit well with Peggy Lee.

    AWA Major League Wrestling

    Great show this week with some really big matches scheduled for the fans at home. The tag division got a lot of love on this week... The Golden Boys might have the size to deal with the Beast of Burden ... this is going to be some heavy hitting matches! The Russians try to stop the Union from getting to the ring but it backfires as eventually they have to deal with both the Union and the Olympians....I like how you then turned this is to a little babyface controversy! Good work here. Wahoo might think he can outwrestle Bock and that is because the backhand chop is a legal wrestling move! Highlight of the show.... SMACK!!!! by Precious Colon needs a raise!!! He deals with all the monsters for you. Between the possible issues with the Union and Olympians and the Awesome Twosome, the Labor Day show is sure to have some twists and turns! Awesome matches for tv as a said before we the Lawler/RnR Express-Fab Ones/Dundee and then Steamboat/Snuka-BJ/Dream Machine-love the chaos! Nice job pushing the big event.

    Another good week in WSW as we continue to head towards the big Labor Day event. I thought you did a great job of bringing in Super Strong Machine and the scene with Duk and Tojo was really well done. Crybaby Embry continues to be a story I enjoy. Nice job. Funk calling out Chicky Starr was a nice touch to add to that feud. Pick your Poison Matches was an interesting idea. One day, Funk or Slater is going to get Jumbo! I am also enjoying your development of Kendall Windham. He is an example of why I think your promotion is one of the most realistic for the time. In the overall game, he has taken a back seat but for you he is a pretty big star. In real life, he had a big run in a few territories including Florida. Thanks for all your hard work. I hope it is as fun for you to write as it is for me to read.

    Mid-South Wrestling

    AUGUST 28, 1986 CIVIC CENTER: MONROE, LOUISIANA (ON LOCAL AFFIATES IN THE MID-SOUTH TERRITORY) (The show begins with footage from the last week’s show in New Orleans where we see the Patriots celebrating in the ring, Hacksaw Butch Reed nailing Jos Leduc with the briefcase full of money then handing out dollar bills to the fans after the briefcase busted open, Ernie Ladd hitting Rocky Johnson with the Big Boot, Ted Dibiase pinning Ivan Koloff and the big one… Michael Hayes clobbering Terry Gordy with a chair shot to the head. Then we go to the regular opening montage set to techno music and showing all the big stars of Mid-South Wrestling and finally we go to the set with your host, Jim Ross.) Ross: "Hello and welcome once again to Power Pro Wrestling, sanctioned by Mid-South Wrestling, a member of the National Wrestling Alliance. What a show we had this past Friday in New Orleans. The Patriots have earned a Mid-South title shot this week in Baton Rouge against the Masked Superstars. Ernie Ladd once again stuck his nose where it doesn’t belong as he helped his man Bad News Allen retain his Mid-South Title, Ted Dibiase, with the help of his tag team partner Dr. Death, has earned an NWA World Title Match against Nikita Koloff and what can I say… Michael Hayes has stupped to his lowest level yet! Let me bring out, NWA President Cowboy Bill Watts. Jim Ross welcomes Watts to the interview area and hands the show over to him. Watts: First Jim, everyone keeps coming up to me and saying it is time to suspend Michael Hayes; you can’t let him get away with hitting a blind man in the head with a chair and I let them know that basically, my hands are tied. The NWA did not sanction that Blindfold Match. The doctors refuse to clear Terry Gordy to wrestle. It was Gordy who demanded this match which again… the NWA had no jurisdiction over. So… I may agree with the fans that the actions of Michael Hayes are disgusting, but it is not in my power to punish him. As the fans, start to boo… Watts: Hold on one minute… what is in my power is to sanction Michael Hayes’ next match. Terry Gordy keeps asking for another shot but as I said before, the doctors will not clear him. That doesn’t mean that there are not dozens of other wrestlers who want a piece of Hayes and this week in Baton Rouge… it will be Michael Hayes and Buddy Roberts taking on Bruiser Brody and Dr. Death Steve Williams. The crowd explodes and all is forgiven for Bill Watts. Watts: Hold on fans, there is more for the big event this week in Baton Rouge… “Soul Man” Rocky Johnson will get another Mid-South Title shot… a fair title shot as Ernie Ladd will be banned from the arena! As Watts heads off, Jim Ross hypes up the show in Baton Rouge and then runs-down today’s show which features Black Bart vs Jerry Oates. Jimmy Garvin vs Larry Winters. Jake “The Snake” Roberts vs Mike George, Rufus R. Jones vs Ken Timbs, U.S. Steel vs Ricky “The Cuban Lover” and in the main event, The Patriots vs The Alaskan Hunters. MATCH Black Bart defeats Jerry Oates with the Texas Trash Compacter After the bout, Michael Hayes and Buddy Roberts come out to Jim Ross. Ross: Well since you two aren’t scheduled to be out here right now, I guess you are here to complain about the upcoming match with Bruiser Brody and Dr. Death that Bill Watts just announced. Michael Hayes: Don’t you worry Jim Ross… we’ll get to that match in just a minute but first let’s talk about Terry Gordy. Let’s talk about Baton Rouge. People kept coming up and saying Michael, you got to be afraid. Terry Gordy’s making a comeback. You got to face him in a Blindfold Match! They said that a Blindfold Match was the perfect match for his return to the ring…..I know a lot of great athletes who said their goin make a comeback. Muhammed Ali said he was coming back. How’d that work out? That’s right… he found himself face down in the center of the ring after Larry Holmes knocked him out! Joe Theisman said he was making a comeback after L.T. snapped his leg in half. Anyone see Joe? Nope! Now Gordy made his comeback and I knocked him out. Comeback over! Jim Ross: You did hit a blindman with a chair. Michael Hayes: All I know is that he was knocked out. A few weeks, Dr. Death challenged me to a match, and everyone thought I was going down. Again, when that bout was over, it was Dr. Death knocked out and I was partying till morning down on Bad Street. Jim Ross: Again, you are leaving out the fact that you hit Dr. Death with a brick. Michael Hayes: Again… does it matter? No, this week you are bringing back Dr. Death and you gave him a new partner… Caveman Brody. Well listen up Caveman… I just explained comebacks to you. This is Dr. Death’s comeback. It aint goin to work. If you show up in Baton Rouge… you will be trying to make a comeback somewhere in the future. Commotion at the podium as Bruiser Brody is rushing after the Freebirds. Hayes and Roberts see this and make a hasty retreat, but Brody is in pursuit as we head to break. COMMERCIALS + PROMOS FOR BATON ROUGE Before our next match, we get a quick interview with Brody and Dr. Death and you can tell that the Caveman comment by Hayes bothered Brody while Dr. Death is still fuming about Hayes hitting him with the loaded purse and Gordy with the chair. The promise to put an end to the Freebirds this week in Baton Rouge. MATCH Jimmy Garvin defeated Larry Winters with the Brainbuster After the match, Sheik Adnan Al Kassie and his Army (Jake Roberts, Masked Superstars and Jos Leduc) are at the podium. Sheik Adnan Al Kassie: Masaa’ alkhayr kafa hakuk, Jim Ross! Again, Butch Reed has gone too far. He has crossed the line. Not only did he cheat to beat my men by hitting them with my own briefcase, but he stole my money. Money that was earned by selling oil to all the fools in America. Butch Reed, I promise you that this week in Baton Rouge, Jake Roberts will take your North American Title and prove to you just how week your American training has been. I have only had Jake in my army for a short time but with superior Iraqi training, he has improved by leaps and bounds and will easily defeat Reed. Then my Masked Superstars will do the same to those Patriots. Fans of Mid-South wrestling I must question your intelligence… how can you support such losers as the Patriots? Jim Ross: Jake Roberts… I must ask you what you think of your manager constantly putting down the country you have called home all your life? Adnan: That is the different in my land… Soldiers don’t talk. They fight. Generals talk…. And I have already told you all you need to know. COMMERCIALS + PROMOS FOR BATON ROUGE Before our next match, we see a video interview from Ivan & Nikita Koloff talking about how badly Nikita Koloff was going to beat Ted Dibiase this week in Baton Rouge. When the video is over, we see Ted Dibiase, wearing his NWA World Tag Team Title, at the podium. Ted Dibiase: Words… words mean very little. Nikita can scream all he wants to. Ivan can claim his ridiculous claims each time we beat them. Fact is… Ivan… your words just cost your nephew his World Title. It was you who demanded an NWA World Tag Team Title Shot against me and Doc. It was you who I easily pinned in the center of the ring giving me the World Title shot in Baton Rouge. Now I can’t wait to hear what you say about Mother Russia and America when I have the NWA World Tag Title over one shoulder and the NWA World Title over the other and all you have Nikita is …. Words! MATCH Jake “The Snake” Roberts with Sheik Adnan Al Kassie vs Mike George Before the match, Hacksaw Butch Reed comes to the ring and talks to Mike George. George shakes his hand and exits the ring. Hacksaw then asks for a house microphone. Reed: Sheik Adnan… I heard you out hear a few minutes ago talking about how easily “The Snake” is going to beat me in Baton Rouge and its because of your training. Well, why what till Baton Rouge… Let’s do it Now! The crowd explodes and Roberts seems ready. Adnan Al Kassie also seems ready, and the bell is rung. Uncharacteristically for The Snake, he rushed in to attack but Reed was ready for him. We get only a few big moves by Reed before Akbar sends in the rest of the Army. They attack Reed pretty good but the calvary was on standby and the Patriots and Harley Race rush to his aid! A real Pier 6 brawl ensues with the fan favorites eventually ending up in control of the ring. The Patriots, Reed and Race give a post-brawl interview where they seem excited to lay the boots to Adnan ‘s men again! COMMERCIALS + PROMOS FOR BATON ROUGE MATCH Rufus “Freight Train” Jones defeats Ken Timbs following three big right hands followed by a huge headbutt A quick post-match interview welcomes Rufus back to Mid-South and he is very humble but confident that he will be a great help to all his buddies in taking care of the all the problems going in the territory. After Rufus leaves, Ernie Ladd comes out with the Mid-South Champion, Bad News Allen. Ernie Ladd: Jim Ross… I think this show needs to be renamed. Power Pro Wrestling just is false advertising. It should be the Power Minute Pro Wrestling. The man with all the power, Bill Watts, stays about a minute each week; makes some biased decisions and then runs off and hides. Last week, he gets outsmarted twice. Twice… wow… that’s actually a good week for the Big Dummy to only get outsmarted only twice. Never mind… as I was saying… first I refused to allow his crooked refs to steal Bad News Allen’s title as Watts had planned and then Michael Hayes outsmarts Watts and clobbers the Blindbird, Terry Gordy. Now this week, because his Good Ol Boys and Uncle Tom’s came up short again, he goes and changes the rules. He bans me from Baton Rouge. He bans me from doing my job which is legally granted to me by the NWA! No big deal… Bad News is going to beat “Uncle Tom” Johnson in Baton Rouge with or without me. The question is… will Uncle Tom Johnson actually find Baton Rouge? Jim Ross: Is that a threat Mr. Ladd Bad News Allen: We don’t make threats… only promises. COMMERCIALS + PROMOS FOR BATON ROUGE MATCH U.S Steel defeats Ricky “The Cuban Lover” Santana with a Giant Splash After the bout, Rocky “Soul Man” Johnson comes out to the podium and is calling out Ladd and Bad News Allen. He is fuming about them making a threat to take him out before the title match in Baton Rouge. After a minute or so of calling out Ladd and Bad News, Jim Ross explains that he has just gotten word from someone in the back that Ladd and Allen have already left the arena. This does little to calm down Rocky who says that he will take the title off Bad News this week in Baton Rouge! MAIN EVENT MATCH (Time Line Remaining) The Patriots (DJ Peterson & Todd Champion) vs The Alaskan Hunters Interesting thing here was that Hacksaw Butch Reed and Harley Race come out to the ring as “security” to make sure Sheik Adnan doesn’t attack again… The match is real hard-hitting with the Patriots controlling about 60% of the action in this tough tune-up for their Mid-South Title shot against the Masked Superstars this week in Baton Rouge. After about 3 minutes, The Sheik and his Army come out and stand on the opposite side of the ring from Race and Reed. Jim Ross: Hold on… Hold on just a minute. I am getting work from a camera man in the truck that there is some commotion out in the parking lot. We are now seeing footing of Ernie Ladd and Bad News Allen tossing Rocky Johnson off one car and then into another…. Next, we cut back live to the ring, where Adnan’s Army has attacked and combined with the Alaskan Hunters, have the numbers advantage against the Patriots, Reed and Race. Jim Ross: Sorry folks, we are out of time. I just hope that Rocky Johnson, The Patriots and Butch Reed make it to Baton Rouge in one piece! This doesn’t look good. So long from the Pelican State.

    Mid-South Wrestling

    NWA MID SOUTH WRESTLING Lakefront Arena: New Orleans, Louisiana August 27, 1986 Partially Shown on Superstation 17 Norvel Austin defeats “Hollywood” John Tatum after the ref caught Tatum trying to use the ropes for an advantage during a pin attempt. Tatum argued back with the ref but was surprised with a roll up for the pin by Austin, Crusher Blackwell defeated Ken Timbs with the Airplane Spin-Back Drop Combo. The Masked Man with the NY Yankee mask attacked Blackwell after the bout but he was met with the same devasting move and left laying in the center of the ring. (If both Patriots win their matches, they earn another Mid-South Tag Team Title Match Patriot DJ Peterson defeated Masked Superstar #1 with Sheik Adnan Al Kassie when Akbar accidently hit his own man with the briefcase full of money. Patriot Todd Champion defeated Masked Superstar #2 with Sheki Adnan Al Kassie by DQ as Masked Superstar #1 interfered. This brought out DJ Peterson and we end up with a good old fashion brawl. The problem here for a moment was that Jos Leduc got involved and gave the advantage to the heels. Harley Race & Butch Reed hit the ring and Akbar’s Army ran for the hills. The Patriots get a Mid-South Tag Team Title Match next week in Baton Rouge. GRUDGE MATCH Harley Race & Hacksaw Butch Reed defeat Jake “The Snake” Roberts & Jos Leduc/ Sheik Adnan Al Kassie after Reed hit Leduc with a top rope football tackle as Leduc was coming after him with the briefcase. The briefcase busted open and Reed had a grand old time handing out money to the kids on his way back to the locker room. NWA Mid-South Title Match Bad News Allen © with Ernie Ladd defeated Rocky “Soul Man” Johnson as the ref was down and Ladd hit the ring and connected with a Big Boot on Johnson. NWA WORLD TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH (If the Russians lose, who ever got the win for the champs, gets an NWA World Title Shot) Ted Dibiase & Dr. Death Steve Williams defeat Ivan & Nikita Koloff as Ted Dibiase hit the slingshot suplex on Ivan Koloff while Dr. Death and Nikita were brawling out on the floor. Ted Dibiase now gets an NWA World Title Shot next week vs Nikita in Baton Rouge. Lights Out-Blindfold Match Terry Gordy vs Michael Hayes This unsanctioned match was wild from the beginning. First of all, Michael Hayes came out with his own blindfold which was obviously see-through, but the ref was having nothing to do with this and game real blindfolds to both him and Bam Bam. Both man staggered through the opening minutes of the match but once they figured out where each other was, it turned into the brawl you would expect. Also, as you would expect, Gordy was on top for most of this match. At one point, it looked like Gordy was going to connect with the piledriver but Hayes was able to block it. Hayes decided winning this match was not really important as the NWA wouldn’t even sanction it! He yanks off his blindfold and now has such an advantage that he can’t be stopped. The problem was that he wanted to take Gordy out and went and grabbed a chair! WHAM… Hayes with the chair shot on the head of Gordy and he is down. Hayes continues to beat him until the chair is mangled into completely bend steel. The crowd is foaming at the mouth as their hatred for Hayes is growing incrementally by the minute. Finally, we get help as Dibiase and Dr. Death rush to Gordy’s rescue and Hayes makes for a quick escape!

    AWA Major League Wrestling

    Very fun tv show. Curt Hennig is startting to sound a lot like Mr. Perfect. Could we be seeing the beginning of a character transformation. His confidence has his partner a little shaken. Always love those off-arena segments and the one with Pricelss and the Bruise Brothers was great. I know nothing of Morrow in real life, but in this game, you have made him into a star! Ox Baker is creating a group as scary as himself... that could mean trouble for the rest of the AWA! Garvin vs Idol... this will be fun. Idol and his gimmick vs Garvin and his stiffness will make for a fun contrast in styles. I think both have the ability to put on a great show in and out of the ring so the lead up to this will be great. Great answer by Bock as to why he lost to Wahoo... it was a match for savages. I never liked Bock when I was a kid and that might have been becasue he was too articulate for me but he is a great read in this game. Good job! The last 3 matches in the Aud would have people talking for a long time. I find it hard to do these house shows before a big event as I don't want to give too much away. You did a nice job here!

    I really enjoyed your tv show. To me the territory system days where the best in wrestling. Each promotion had their roster of 15-20 "stars" and each one seemed so important. This is exactly how I feel when I read WSW and I love it. You, just as Championhship Wrestling from Florida did back in the day, have made Tyree Pride a star and this is what makes it so great. In today's world, Tyree Pride would have no spot in the sport. Looking forward to the Labor Day event. The battle royal and all the big matches will be huge for you and the NWA. Each time you tell us about the crowd calling Embry a crybaby, I get a vivd picture in my mind about this. Very well done! As for the big event at the Sports Arena, I like that you added a Taped Fist Match. This gets fans ready for the Labor Day show. Throw in the Bunkhouse Match and you give us a true WSW feel. Also, I give you credit for keeping Kendall strong as we head into the big event. One Man Gang has been such a monster and you found away to keep it all moving forward. Nice job.

    Good set of house shows that continue to push WSW towards the big Labor Day event. Chicky cost Jimmy Jack Funk a match but then Funk gets revenge later in the card, This is an awesome feud and you have done a nice job pushing this one. Same thing goes for The Brotherhood vs Sullivan's goons. One side gets the win and just a little later it gets evened out! Really keeps us guessing as to which way the big one will turn out. Tyree is really becoming a thorn in the side of Whatley and Slick! If Kernodle broke Sullivan's neck, he would be the most popluar man in wrestling

    I must say that it doesn't take you long to get everyone on your roster in the right spot! Nice set of house shows with the highlight for me being Tommy Rich telling Bob that he is going to beat him the same way as his son and then send him out of CCW while Bob and Brad are beating the other Rich cousins on the other loop!

    Mid-South Wrestling

    AUGUST 21, 1986 THE CAJUNDOME: LAFAYETTE, LOUISIANA (ON LOCAL AFFIATES IN THE MID-SOUTH TERRITORY) (The show begins with footage from the last week’s show in Houston, Texas where Hacksaw Butch Reed survived the North American Title Tournament to become the new champion and Michael Hayes hit his tag team partner, Buddy Roberts by accident in their Street Fight against the NWA World Champions which allowed Dibiase and Dr. Death to survive their title defense. We also see Black Bart clobber Bruiser Brody and Bad News Allen attack Rocky Johnson in the aisles of the Sam Houston Coliseum. Then we go to the regular opening montage set to techno music and showing all the big stars of Mid-South Wrestling and finally we go to the set with your host, Jim Ross.) Ross: "Hello and welcome once again to Power Pro Wrestling, sanctioned by Mid-South Wrestling, a member of the National Wrestling Alliance. What a show we had this past Friday in Houston, Texas. Hacksaw Butch Reed is your new North American Champion, and he will be joining us in just a few minutes. Ivan Koloff will be in action taking on the “Cajun” Joey Jackson. The Patriots (DJ Peterson & Todd Champion) will be taking on Hollywood John Tatum and “Gorgeous” Gary Young. Bruiser Brody takes on “No Class” Donny Bass. Rocky Johnson squares off against “Rotten” Ron Starr and in the main event, it will be U.S. Steel vs Jake “The Snake” Roberts and the winner will get the first shot at Hacksaw Butch Reed and the North American Title in two weeks in Baton Rouge. First, let’s bring on Butch Reed and that North American title! Jim Ross: Congratulations Butch. What a great accomplishment for you winning the North American Title. That makes you the top man in Mid-South and just one step below Nikita Koloff and the NWA World Title! Hacksaw Butch Reed: Thank you Jim. It is an honor to win this belt and I promise to be a fighting champion. I would also like to thank Harley Race who came out to the ring just in time before that lowlife, Jos Leduc clobbered me in the head with that briefcase full of cash. Jim Ross: You said a mouthful there Hacksaw. In fact, this week in the Lakefront Arena in New Orleans it will be you and Harley Race taking on Leduc and Jake “the Snake.” Reed: I can’t wait. Every time I get a chance to get in the ring with any of Akbar’s men and take care of business, I’m all for it and I know Harley feels the same way. He’s been having trouble with Leduc for about a year now and it will be great to return the favor this week in New Orleans. Akbar…. I dare you to put your nose in that ring this Friday and try any of your nonsense. It might be the last thing you do. Jim Ross: There you have it folks, the new North American Champion. Reed: One more thing before I go. Terry Gordy… it was a real class act this past week in Houston … you coming out and presenting me with the title and all. It meant a lot to me, and I promise you, when ever you are ready to get back in that ring… you will get a title shot… Now, I won’t go easy on you, and I know you’ll do the same and we’ll give these folks one heck of a show. Thanks again brother. COMMERCIALS + PROMOS FOR LAKEFRONT ARENA-NEW ORLEANS MATCH: The Russian Bear Ivan Koloff, joined at ringside by the NWA World Heavyweight Champion, “the Russian Nightmare, Nikita Koloff, defeats Cajun Joey Jackson by submission with the bearhug Post-match Interview Ivan Koloff: Jim Ross… I demand Bill Watts come out here right now. It is another example of you Americans trying to cheat us just because of our Russian superiority. I was not given chance to be in the North American Title Tournament and Nikita and myself are undefeated as a tag team, but have never once been given a NWA Tag team title shot. I sit back watch the Freebirds get a title shot. They have not even wrestled together in months, but you give them shot. Bill Watts comes out to the interview area… Bill Watts: Ivan… you had your chance to get into the North American Title Tournament but lost to Bruiser Brody in your qualifying match. Ivan Koloff: Stop your American double talk. This is professional wrestling. Bruiser Brody is a Wildman who wouldn’t know a wrestling move, how you say it, from a bicycle. He did not use one wrestling move in our match. It was like fighting a gorilla. Bill Watts: You seem to make a lot of excuses but leave out the fact that you have been running around the NWA hitting people with a chain during your matches. Ivan Koloff: More American double talk. Each time you no like my comment you change the topic. Now do Nikita and myself get a NWA World title shot. Bill Watts: If you would be quiet for half a second Ivan, you would have already heard that this week in New Orleans it will be you and Nikita vs Dibiase and Dr. Death. Ivan Koloff: For once Bill Watts, you make the right move. You must not be feeling well tonight. Imagine how well you will feel next week, when Nikita and I go home to Mother Russia with both your World Titles! Bill Watts: Don’t thank me yet… there is one stipulation… If you lose the match in New Orleans by pin or submission, whoever got the pin or submission will get a shot at Nikita’s World title the following week in Baton Rouge! I wonder how it will feel if you Ivan, cost Nikita here, the NWA World title! Jim Ross: Wow… big news for the fans in Baton Rouge. That event already has Butch Reed defending his North American Title but now there will also be a World Title Match! After the Russians walk away Bill Watts has another announcement, this time for the fans in New Orleans. Bill Watts: Last week our show ended with Ernie Ladd opening his mouth and saying that Rocky Johnson will never get a Mid-South Title shot against Bad News Allen. I would just like to say two things… first of all… Ernie Ladd is not and never will be the matchmaker here in Mid-South Wrestling. Secondly, since Rocky Johnson is the last person to beat Bad News Allen in the ring and after last week, when Allen attacked Rocky Johnson before his match in the North American Title Tournament, Rocky Johnson definitely deserves a title shot and that will occur this week in New Orleans. Ernie Ladd rushes out to confront Bill Watts, but Watts will not even to listen to Ladd complaining about how it is not right to give a title shot to a man who knows nothing about wrestling and whose best move is to stand in the middle of the ring and punch his opponent time after time. Watts reminded Ladd he called him a Big Dummy last week and maybe if he wants something around here, he should show a little respect. COMMERCIALS + PROMOS FOR LAKEFRONT ARENA-NEW ORLEANS MATCH: The Patriots (Peterson & Champion) defeat “Hollywood” John Tatum & “Gorgeous” Gary Young when Tatum, who had the advantage toyed with the crowd for too long and got caught with a second rope shoulder block by Peterson for the pinfall. In their post-match interview, Jim Ross reminds the fans just how close the Patriots have come to defeating the Masked Superstars and winning the Mid-South Tag Team Titles but this week in New Orleans, they will be in singles competition against the champs and in order to earn another title shot, they are going to each have to win their matches. The Patriots are confident in their singles matches and also that they will win the Mid-South titles if they are given another shot. They also warn Sheik Adnan Al Kassie not to get involved in any way! COMMERCIALS + PROMOS FOR LAKEFRONT ARENA-NEW ORLEANS MATCH: Bruiser Brody absolutely mauls “No Class” Donny Bass with the finish coming with a big knee lift Post-Match Interview: (Brody doesn’t give Jim Ross a word as he rips the microphone out of his hands) Bruiser Brody: BLACK BART…. YOU THINK YOU CAN HIT ME IN THE HEAD WITH A BRANDING IRON AND COST ME THE NORTH AMERICAN TITLE….LISTEN UP BLACK BART…. THIS WEEK IN NEW ORLEANS… IT”S GOING TO BE WORSE THAN LAST TIME FOR YOU. YOU ARE GOING TO BE SORRY THAT YOU EVER PUT YOUR NAME ON THE DOTTED LINE! Brody storms off and leaves Jim Ross standing there stammering over his words as Brody’s anger has him off his game. Next to the podium is Carl Fergie. Jim Ross: Carl… I’m unsure what this is all about, but I was told you have an announcement for us. Carl Fergie: Jim… I am out here to first announce to Sheik Adnan Al Kassie that I am sorry for letting you down. I promised you that I would take care of Hacksaw Butch Reed for you and I failed miserable. I realized that I am not in the same league as Hacksaw Butch Reed. I also realized that with my personality, if I cannot be the best, I need to find a new job. Therefore, I am announcing my retirement from pro wrestling. I am not saying that you will not see me in Mid-South Wrestling again, but it will not be as a wrestler. Also, Sheik Adnan…. We need to talk. Jim Ross: Carl… if you are no longer a wrestler, what would Sheik Adnan Al Kassie need with you? Carl Fergie: Jim… with all due respect, I do not interfere with your personal life. Please do not interfere with mine. As Fergie walks off, Jim Ross has no idea what to make of Fergie’s interview. Next to the podium is Terry Gordy who is escorted to the interview area by a staff member… Jim Ross: Well, this is truly a pleasure. Terry Gordy. It is great to see you back in Mid-South Wrestling and as Butch Reed told us earlier, it was great to see you last week in Houston. So, every time a fan comes up to me, they ask, how is Terry Gordy doing? Terry Gordy: Jim, I aint going to lie to you… this is the toughest thing I have ever gone through in my life. I still don’t have my vision but I’m starting to see some shadows and the pain is getting less and less. The crowd begins to stir… Jim Ross: Now wait just a minute…. Michael Hayes… what are you doing here. Michael Hayes: Jim… what’re you doing! You ruined my surprise. I wanted to come out and see my old pal. Don’t you remember, Terry and I go way back. Terry Gordy: Michael Hayes… we might go way back but we aint pals no more. While Gordy is talking, Hayes is in his face waving his hands and taunting Gordy as he is testing to see if Gordy can really see or not. Gordy makes no move at all as it is obvious, he still has no vision. WHAM…Michael Hayes smacks Gordy across the face and Gordy staggers back as Hayes is on the attack. Jim Ross: Come on now.. this is uncalled for. Michael Hayes you should be ashamed of yourself. Terry can’t even defend himself. HUGE POP! Dr. Death rushes out and is after Hayes but somehow, he escapes. Dr. Death goes over to help Gordy to his feet. Gordy and Dr. Death again start yelling about revenge on Hayes.

COMMERCIALS + PROMOS FOR LAKEFRONT ARENA-NEW ORLEANS MATCH: Rocky “Soul Man” Johnson defeats “Rotten” Ron Starr with the Soul Man Shuffle and Boston Crab In a quick post-match interview, Johnson hypes up his Mid-South Title Match with Bad News Allen and reminds everyone that the last time he faced Allen, he got the victory. After Rocky left the interview area, Black Bart comes out with an interview full a danggummitts and tobacco juice as he lefts everyone know that Black Bart can come out here and yell all he wants to but it isn’t going to intimidate him one bit and he is ready for Brody this week in New Orleans.

    ROSTERS AND TRANSACTIONS

    All three should be in. According to Wrestlingdata.com, Ayala would retire after 86 according to our rules but I am sure he wrestled somewhere after this.

    Awesome night of wrestling in Huntsville Great use of this big show to hype up what's been going on during the TV show. Will be interesting to see whay becomes of RPG yelling at Mr. Perfect Nice of Wildfire to take off the mask after Bob Armstrong paid his $100,000 fine. Mrs. Armstrong must be really mad now. Very interesting Semi-main event. I had my eye on Landel but the babyfaces + Dream all seemed to be on the same side and came out on top! Doc and Dibiase are one tough team!

    SAM HOUSTON COLISEUM: HOUSTON, TEXAS August 20, 1986 Partially Shown on Superstation 17 North American Title Tournament FIRST RD: Jake “The Snake” Roberts with Sheik Adnan Al Kassie defeats Harley Race with a DDT following Jos Leduc rushing the ring when the ref was down, and he clobbered Race in the head with the briefcase full on money. Bruiser Brody defeats Black Bart in a physical contest that saw Brody connect with the mauling knee lift for the three-count. An angry Bart managed to get up and follow Brody up the aisle where he proceeded to beat Brody with his branding iron. Brody was busted up real bad! Hacksaw Butch Reed defeated Bob Rope with the top rope football tackle in a match that saw a little of everything as Roop is definitely the better technician even though he is on the wrong side of the law more often than not. “The Mighty Yankee” Billy Jack Strong defeated “Soul Man” Rocky Johnson with the overhead back suplex. What happened here was that Bad News Allen attacked Rocky on his way to the ring and roughed him up pretty badly. Soul Man was never ever to fully recover but gave a good effort but could not handle the dirty tactics and power of the Mighty Yankee. NORTH AMERICAN TITLE TOURNAMENT SEMI-FINALS Jake “The Snake” Roberts wins in a No Contest as the doctor on site would not clear Bruiser Brody to wrestle after Black Bart’s attack. Word is that Brody was so mad that he went straight for the heel locker room and tore it to pieces in search of Bart who left in a hurry after he was warned by the Mighty Yankee that Brody was on his way. Hacksaw Butch Reed defeated the “Mighty Yankee” Billy Jack Strong with a Military Press Slam in a match that was full of power moves. Jim Ross says that this is the best that he has ever seen Reed look as that he would not be surprised to see him walk out of here with the North American Title. NWA WORLD TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH: STREET FIGHT Ted Dibiase & “Dr. Death” Steve Williams © defeated the Freebirds (Michael Hayes & Buddy Roberts) as Michael Hayes accidently hit Buddy Roberts with the same loaded purse that Hayes used last week on Dr. Death. Roberts was holding Williams but just as Hayes was about to hit Williams, Dr. Death broke free. Williams scooped up Hayes for the Oklahoma Stampede and then covered Roberts for the win. NORTH AMERICAN TITLE TOURNAMENT FINALS Hacksaw Butch Reed defeated Jake “The Snake” Roberts with Sheik Adnan Al Kassie with the short arm clothesline followed by a spear as Roberts was distracted from some chaos on the outside of the ring. It looked like Leduc was coming to the ring again with the briefcase in hand, but Harley Race prevented another attacked by the Lumberjack. The two went at it pretty good out on the floor and when Roberts looked out at the brawl, it was the beginning of the end. In a touching moment, Terry Gordy, bandaged eyes and all, was escorted to the ring by Ted Dibiase and Dr. Death and the trio presented Hacksaw Butch Reed with the North American Title! Gordy grabbed the house mic and said that if he couldn’t be the champ anymore, he couldn’t think of a more deserving person to wear the North American Title. Gordy promised the fans that he was making progress and that he would be back soon enough to get some revenge on Michael Hayes.

    I really enjoyed the TV show this week as it really pushed your Labor Day Spectacular... OMG in a 3-1 bout as he stacks them on top of each other continues to build his monster character. Dusek and the announcement of the Brass Knucks Championship and the Loser Leave Town Death Match gives the event such a Western Satates feel.... AWESOME! Perez continues to do his job of winning over the fans and now he is looking for a TV title show... He could make a great champ Dev. Inc is looking strong. Great job developing two good heel stables. CRYBABY! Love Embry getting some heat. The Funks and Slater are a group not to be messed with... Look at Zaibatsu! SPORTS ARENA SHOW I like how you continue to give all the fans a good show but not give away to much on your tv angles. This slow play seems like a smart move with a smaller roster. You have everyone in the right place. Can't wait to see you add in the Brass Knucks Title as the fans will have built in blood every week which seems about right for West Texas.

    This was like a sop opera for men... one wild turn after the next. WOW... Bob pays the $100,000.... Beach Brawl is going to ge great. Keep the cameras rolling....

    AWA Major League Wrestling

    Great opening segment with the World Tag Titles on the line... The Beast are truly Monsters as Adias says. Hope Hennig didn't bite off more than he can chew. Wahoo vs Bock- Title shot on the line... All good with me. Colon on the attack in Japan... Awesome... gives off that idea that the AWA is a World power. Also nice touch with the fans running from Tiger Jeet as he swings the sword. You always add in those little touches that make it even better. Speaking of little touches, I think you do a great job of capturing Ken Resnick. Putski the Younger is here but he seems to have gotten in the way of Vin Man and his new family.... Vin Man better be careful. He still has some enemies around the AWA Battle Royals are always fun but when you add that the winner gets a title shot, it is even better. Get ready Austin Idol. Olympians vs Soviet Stell... great 80's midcard feud. This one makes the money! Iceman is coming... looking forward to seeing what you do with him. Snuka on with Brenda was great. All I kept thinking about was when Snuka went on Piper's Pit in real life and the coconuts were smashing and the set was destroyed. RNR Express-Fab Ones... It doesn't get any better than this. They could wrestle every night for 6 months and people would still watch. In this game, we have seen Bob Backlund become a great heel and now Greg Gagne has followed the path to the dark side. To me, in real life, these two were BOORING. In Dawn of War, they are great! Nice job to you and the WWF.

    Great use of your entire roster. The "A" group headed over to Mississippi this week and put on an awesome event. I am on Bullet's side that the original Intern was Wildfire Rich but only time will tell. Love the two ring King of the Hill bout that really pushes Magnum up the ladder and on the road to a title shot. Alabama fans got their $$$ worth this week. Surf's Up is a cool name and works well here. Davey Rich sells tickets as people want him to take a beating becasue of his cousin. Just as the name Rich sells tickets, so does Armstrong. Nice try for Steve here but Bass and the experience (Miss Betsy) won out tonight.

    Mid-South Wrestling

    AUGUST 14, 1986 BARTON COLISEUM: LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS (ON LOCAL AFFIATES IN THE MID-SOUTH TERRITORY) SHORT VERSION DUE TO FAMILY VACATION (The show begins with footage from the last week’s show in Jackson, Mississippi, where Michael Hayes hit Dr. Death with some sort of loaded purse. Ernie Ladd hit Rocky Johnson with the Big Boot. Bruiser Brody landed a mauling knee lift on Ivan Koloff and one of the Masked Superstars had DJ Peterson locked in a cobra clutch. Then we go to the regular opening montage set to techno music and showing all the big stars of Mid-South Wrestling and finally we go to the set with your host, Jim Ross.) Ross: "Hello and welcome once again to Power Pro Wrestling, sanctioned by Mid-South Wrestling, a member of the National Wrestling Alliance. What a show we had this past Friday in Jackson, Mississippi. As you saw in the video, Michael Hayes once again took a shortcut in his match and hit Dr. Death” Steve Williams with some sort of loaded purse. While this did cost the Freebirds the match, it seems like we have gotten to the point that something has to be done with Michael Hayes. This is when the NWA World Tag Team Champions, Dibiase and Dr. Death come out. Dr. Death: You just said a mouthful Jim Ross. Something needs to be done about Michael Hayes and until Terry Gordy can return to action and take care of that blonde haired weasel himself, I am going to make it my job. Now, you all just saw Michael Hayes reach under the ring and pull out a purse and hit me over the head with it. The real question isn’t what was in that purse as we all know it was a brick. The real question is why is someone who talks about partying with all these beautiful woman down on Bad Street carrying a purse to begin with. I think Michael Hayes with all that long hair is the only woman at those parties. Now, this week in Houston, Ted and I are going to challenge the Freebirds to a Street Fight… Come as You Want… Bring what you want…. NWA World Tag Team Title on the line! Ted Dibiase: Michael Hayes… you hear Doc… come as you want. If that means wearing a dress and carrying a purse, that is fine with us. Just understand one thing. We are coming to the ring wearing our NWA World Titles and we will be leaving with them. Jim Ross: There you have it folks. This week in Houston, we will not only see the 8 Man Tournament to crown a new North American Champion but we will also have a Street Fight Match for the NWA World Tag Team Title between Ted Dibiase and Dr. Death vs The Freebirds. Speaking of the North American Title Match… the last two entrants are Rocky Johnson and Bruiser Brody. OUT COMES ERNIE LADD Ernie Ladd: This is absolute nonsense. This is Big Dummy Watts making up the rules as he goes. Bad News Allen gets disqualified last week in Jackson because his incompetent referee said I interfered in the match. Jim Ross: Are you denying that you kicked Rocky Johnson? Ernie Ladd: Are you denying that Rocky Johnson hit Bad News Allen with 3 back to back closed fists punches and nothing was done for these infractions? A pause by Ross… Ernie Ladd: So even you see the hypocrisy. The good news is that the Watt’s cheating scandal did not occur during a title match. A match that Rocky Johnson will never get! As Ladd storms off, Jim Ross is grateful that Ernie Ladd doesn’t make the matches around here and that if Rocky Johnson is deserving of a title match, Cowboy Bill Watts will make sure that he gets it. COMMERCIAL BREAK + PROMOS FOR HOUSTON, TEXAS The rest of the show was used to hype of the tournament this Friday in Houston with some interviews from those involved. They all were very confident in their chances, but we did not see any wild brawls between the entrants. As for matches, we saw wins by the Alaskan Hunters and Patriots in tag team action. We also saw Rusty Brooks come out and get his first win with the Discus Punch. In his post-match interview, he explained that being from Denton, Texas, the VonErichs helped to get him into this sport and that he tries to model his in-ring techniques after both Kerry and Kevin. He seems to have won over the crowd with this news even though his body looks nothing like Kevin or Kerry. U.S. Steel also had a nice win over the Russian Assassin, Alexis Smirnoff and Jimmy Garvin defeated Jos Leduc in the Main Event when Sheik Adnan clobbered Garvin with the briefcase full of money. Garvin and Precious got even when Precious came up from behind the Sheik and clobbered him with the loaded purse. Interesting thing here was the NWA World Tag Champs were out during this match discussing their Street Fight with the Freebirds this week in Houston and had some comments that might or might not mean something in coming weeks. First, when the Sheik used the briefcase full of money on Garvin, Dibiase said it might be time to take that briefcase off Sheik’s hands and when Precious hit the Sheik with the loaded purse, Dr. Death seemed to think the purse looked just like the one Michael Hayes hit him in the head with last week in Jackson, Mississippi. So long from the land of opportunity! THIS WEEK IN THE SAM HOUSTON COLISEUM ONE NIGHT TOURNAMENT TO CROWN NORTH AMERICAN CHAMPION (FIRST ROUND MATCHES) Jake “The Snake” Roberts with Sheik Adnan Al Kassie vs Harley Race Bruiser Brody vs Black Bart Hacksaw Butch Reed vs Bob Roop “Soul Man” Rocky Johnson vs “The Mighty Yankee” Billy Jack Strong NWA WORLD TAG TEAM TITLE STREET FIGHT MATCH Ted Dibiase & Dr. Death (c) Vs The Freebirds (Hayes & Roberts)

    My fault with the brainbuster by Garvin on Rusty Brooks/ Didn't realize he was that heavy. I need to research some of these lesser names better.

    Western States Wrestling

    Nice set of house shows this week for WSW. Slick is really Slick... attacking his own man to get the DQ. Looking forward to the TV show to make sure Shaska is OK with this. Big win for the Wild Bunch. Highlight of the loop for me was Embry throwing a fit and the crowd calling him crybaby. I have seen some of his stuff from World Class and his fits were awesome TV. He was so good on the mic! Tojo was doing some serious travel here as he was wrestling on one loop and managing on the other. Great use of your talent and roster..

    MISSISSIPPI FAIRGROUNDS COLISIEUM: JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI August 13, 1986 Partially Shown on Superstation 17 Ricky Santana, who comes out waving the Cuban flag, defeats Mike Graham after using an illegal weapon he had in his trunks. U.S. Steel defeats The Cuban Assassin with a Bearhug Splash. Ricky Santana rushed out to try and interfere, but it was too late. U.S. Steel dared Santana to come in the ring but he thought better of it. “Gorgeous” Jimmy Garvin defeated Rusty Brooks with the Brainbuster. Interesting thing here was that Rusty Brooks, announced from Denton, Texas, home of the VonErichs, connected with a Discus Punch on Garvin then sent him wheeling and then he tried to lock in the claw, but Garvin was too close to the ropes. What the fans and Garvin thought was going to be an easy win was anything but! Jake “The Snake” Roberts defeated Crusher Blackwell with the DDT after Sheik surprised Blackwell by putting Jake’s snake in his face. Blackwell turned away and walked right into the DDT. Hacksaw Butch Reed defeated the Mighty Yankee Billy Jack Strong with a top rope shoulder block. Give the Mighty Yankee his due as he gave Reed all he could handle in a match full of power move after power move. To everyone’s surprise, The Mighty Yankee was followed to the ring but that man wearing a NY Yankees Mask. Did the Mighty Yankee just pay someone off to wear the mask and make people think it wasn’t him or is there really two Yankees running around Mid-South Wrestling. Anyway, this Yankee in the Mask did try to get involved once when the ref had been knocked down, but he was met with a Military Press Slam by Reed. MID-SOUTH TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH The Masked Superstars © with Sheik Adnan Al Kassie defeated the Patriots (DJ Peterson & Todd Champion) when the Masked Superstars used the old switch-a-roo and a fresh Superstar #1 caught Peterson in a cobra clutch. North American Title Tournament Spot on the Line Rocky Johnson defeated Bad News Allen with Ernie Ladd by DQ as Ernie Ladd hit Johnson with the Big Boot after Johnson had laid out Allen with the Soul Man Shuffle (3 Punch Combo) and then had him locked in the Boston Crab. North American Title Tournament Spot on the Line Bruiser Brody defeated Ivan Koloff when he ducked under Koloff’s attempt to hammer him with a right hand wrapped in a chain. Brody then came off the rope and connected with a mauling knee lift and Brody stole victory from the grasp of defeat. NWA WORLD TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH The Freebirds defeated Ted Dibiase & Dr. Death by count out as the action spilled out of the ring with all four men in a total brawl. Michael Hayes reached under the ring and pulled out what looked like a woman’s purse and hit Dr. Death with it. Dr. Death went down like he was hit with a sledgehammer, and he was not able to get back in the ring.

    Wesrern State4s keeps on rolling... First fir the TV show... Awesome interview for Tojo. He says alot of nasty things but Dusek has some great points and I'm looking forward to see if Slater can get the title from Jumbo. Good job by Watts hyping up the Labor Day Show. Whatley continues to have a really nice title reigh. He is a great upper mod-card heel for you. ON TO THE SPORTS ARENA. Terry Funk vs Killer Tim Brooks might be the best opener in Dawn of War. This card gets better and better. Abbie vs Dutch (with a great ending) is 2nd match from the top material and it is again so early in your card. You have done great things with your roster and WSW is booming! Great Tag Team match to earn a title shot... Dr. Death and Dibiase, if they are still champs, will have their hands full with Karachi Vice OMG with the win over Dory keeps his monster status growing. Also nice job in keeping Dory strong as he wrestled earlier in the card and now had a "reason" for losing to OMG. Fans are always upset when the babyfaces lose a chance at the title on a DQ or count-out and I'm sure this was the case with the Fort Bragg Brotherhood but now we get a Boot Camp Match and all is forgiven. WOW... OMG win the win and now he gets Nikita. This will be a fun one! Great week at the Sports Arena.
