    Mid-South Wrestling

    Anyone who wishes to see how we got here, check out the Mid-South Wrestling Archives thread as well as the Great American Bash thread JULY 3, 1986 THE COLISEUM ON THE MISSISSIPPI STATE FAIRGROUNDS JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI The show opens after its regular montage of Mid-South stars with a video tape showing Ivan Koloff help Nikita pin Magnum T.A. and become the new NWA World Heavyweight Champion at The Great American Bash in the Superdome. Jim Ross: Welcome everybody to another hour of Mid-South Wrestling coming to you this week from The Coliseum right here in Jackson, Mississippi. I’m Jim Ross and my partner today is none other than NWA President, Cowboy Bill Watts. Bill, everywhere I go, people are always talking about Mid-South Wrestling and this week, it’s no different. What an historic event The Great American Bash was. Cowboy Bill Watts: That’s for sure Jim. As NWA President, I would like to thank the promoters of Western States Wrestling, Continental Championship Wrestling and Mid-South Wrestling for putting on the greatest event in wrestling history. Folks, as you saw in the opening, Nikita Koloff is the new NWA World Champion. (Boos rain down from the crowd in Jackson). I know fans. I know. I feel the same way. Hopefully, Magnum T.A. will regroup and get that title back real soon! Fans who were lucky enough to be at the Great American Bash also know that Nikita Koloff is not the only new champion here in Mid-South Wrestling. As he has been known to do on a few occasions, “Big Cat” Ernie Ladd threw us a bit of a curveball at the Great American Bash by bringing out Bad News Allen to wrestle “Hacksaw” Butch Reed…. That’s right folks, Bad News Allen is back in the NWA after his year-long suspension and with the aid of Ernie Ladd, defeated Butch to become the NWA Mid-South Champion. We will be hearing from both Bad News Allen and Hacksaw Butch Reed a little later in the show. Bill Watts: That’s not all as we have another amazing hour of wrestling instore for everybody. We will have Freebird Michael Hayes in action. The Masked Superstars will tak on the Batten brothers. “Gorgeous” Gary Young will be taking on Brusier Brody. A new team calling themselves the Patriots will be taking on Don Bass and Iron Mike Sharpe. If that’s not enough, our main event is going to be huge. It will be Hacksaw Butch Reed vs Black Bart! Cowboy Bill Watts: That and much more as we will be hearing from many wrestlers who took part in the Great American Bash. Also, fans, don’t forget that next Friday we will be in the Sam Houston Coliseum in Houston, Texas where we will see The Masked Superstars taking on the Mid-South Tag Team Champions, Dusty Rhodes and Blackjack Mulligan along with a 20 Man Over the Top Rope Battle Royal where the winner will get an NWA World Title shot, in New Orleans on July 16 against the Russian Nightmare, Nikita Koloff. We will be right back with our first match. COMMERCIAL BREAK WITH PROMOS FOR HOUSTON AND NEW ORLEANS As we come out of break, Ernie Ladd and the new Mid-South Champion, Bad News Allen are at the interview desk! Ernie Ladd: What did I promise you Bill Watts. I told you Hacksaw Reed’s days at champion were coming to an end. I told you my man was going to be wearing the belt at the Bash. Bill Watts: That’s about all you told us. We all thought it would be your man, One Man Gang coming out to face Butch Reed. Ernie Ladd: One Man Gang? Are you kidding me? As soon as I signed Bad News Allen, I gave him a dozen donuts and sent him on his way. Bill Watts: Well don’t you think you had a responsibility to inform Butch Reed so he could properly train for the match? Ernie Ladd: Train… that’s all Reed does… train, train and train some more. The problem is no amount of training is every going to be enough for him to beat Bad News Allen. You know it! I know it and most of all Butch Reed knows it! Bill Watts: I’ll admit that if you keep interfering in the matches, it might be hard for Butch Reed. Ernie Ladd: Oh here we go again… Cowboy Bill Watts: Do you deny getting in the ring and using that Big Boot of yours against Hacksaw Reed? Do you want to see the video tape? Ernie Ladd: Oh yeah… a doctored video tape from you is just what I want to see. I’ve been around the block with you a time or two already Watts and we all know that one of us is not to be trusted! Cowboy Bill Watts: One us for sure. Well, this week in Houston, Hacksaw Butch Reed will be getting a rematch for his Mid-South title! Bad News Allen: And this will be the last time that Hacksaw Butch Reed will be able to get into a ring! As Ladd and Allen walk away, Watts can do nothing but shake his head at the two as he announces it is time to get to the ring. MATCH The Patriots (DJ Peterson & Todd Champion) defeat Iron Mike Sharpe & “No Class” Don Bass when Peterson connected with a 2nd rope shoulder block on Don Bass The crowd was really behind The Patriots who came out in red and blue trunks with white stars on them. Iron Mike Sharpe tried to play his “strongest” athlete in Canada gimmick but was quickly put down when Champion, 6’6, nearly 300 pounds of chiseled muscle hit the double bicep pose forcing Sharpe to shake the ropes in frustration. Their power, good looks and constant push by Watts and Ross helped the Patriots get over in the first bout in Mid-South Wrestling. COMMERCIAL BREAK WITH PROMOS FOR HOUSTON AND NEW ORLEANS When we come out of break, we see Sheik Adnan Al-Kassie with Jim Ross and he vows revenge on Sgt. Slaughter …. is he ever dares to come back to the NWA. The crowd starts to chant USA, USA which really gets under his skin. When asked where his man Killer Khan was, Sheik almost admits that he had made a mistake but then puts all the fault on Khan who he has decided wasn’t the right man to achieve his goals of controlling the NWA and American Wrestling. He says he has the resources to do just that and that he is now on a world-wide hunt to find the perfect athletes to do just that. In fact, he is here tonight to look at one “Gorgeous” Gary Young. MATCH Brusier Brody defeats “Gorgeous” Gary Young with the Mauling Knee Lift Young may be willing to use any tactic possible to win a match but tonight he was in the ring with a wild man who could not be stopped. Young seemed to be genuinely afraid and tried his best to stay away from Brody but when Bruiser eventually got his hands on him, he beat Gorgeous Gary from pillar to post. As the ref was completing the three-count, Sheik just shook his head and walked away knowing that Gary Young could not be the center piece of his stable. COMMERCIAL BREAK WITH PROMOS FOR HOUSTON AND NEW ORLEANS When we come back from break, we see Freebird Michael Hayes with Jim Ross as Ross takes us to a video from the Great American Bash where Michael Hayes first shakes hands with former Freebird Terry Gordy before putting some cream in his eyes which seemed to blind his former partner. Jim Ross: Michael, I understand that your life has gone through some profound changes recently with the breakup of the Freebirds but I must admit you have gone to far. Doctors are still unsure if Terry will ever regain his vision and will be out of wrestling for some time if not forever. Michael Hayes: So, you think I went too far. So, you think I was wrong. So what! Being a Freebird is a way of life. You live by a code and that code is simple… Freebird’S First. We fight together! We party down on Bad Street USA together. We stick with each through thick and thin. That code was fine for Bam Bam as long as we had his back. As long as we helped him out of every difficult situation he got himself in and trust me brother, there was a whole heck of a lot of trouble with Bam Bam. Then Terry decides tag team titles aren’t what he wants. He wants us to help him win the North American Title. Both Buddy Jack and I did just that. That’s the Freebird way. Then Gordy starts selling out. Not given 100% in our tag matches. Not caring if we won or lost the World Title. So, you see, Michael Hayes didn’t turn on Terry Gordy. Terry Gordy turned on the Freebirds. He found out at the Bash that the only way out of the Freebirds is to be beat out of the Freebirds. Part of me feels bad that he will never wrestle again but then I think back to who broke the code. Trust me on this Jack… Freebird Mania is alive and well. They are lining up down on Bad Street to take Bam Bam’s spot and soon the Freebirds will be whole again. Now let me go to the ring as these ladies are in for a treat as Purely Sexy is ready to give them the show of their lives. Jim Ross: I don’t know what to tell ya fans. Michael Hayes has his own way of looking at things. MATCH Michael Hayes defeats Ricky Gibson with the Running Bulldog Hayes used just enough dirty tactics to come out on top. While Hayes doesn’t always look the best in the ring, he almost always finds a way to come to win. Ross and Watts continued to talk about how disgusting an act Hayes had been apart of when he blinded Terry Gordy and while the doctors didn’t seem to have much hope of him regaining his sight, they hoped for the best as they would love to have him comeback at some point and give Michael Hayes just what he deserved! After the match, we get a back-stage interview with Black Bart who is spitting tobacco and cracking the whip while he not only hypes up tonight’s main event match where he is going to beat that puke Butch Reed but also hyping up the Battle Royal in Houston where dagummitt, he is going to win the thing and get himself a World Title Shot where he is going to defeat Nikita Koloff. COMMERCIAL BREAK WITH PROMOS FOR HOUSTON AND NEW ORLEANS Prior to our main event Hacksaw Butch Reed is with Bill Watts where he has some intense words for Ernie Ladd. Hacksaw Butch Reed: Bad News Allen… I don’t blame you. We all know you’re nothing but a big dummy and you fell for the promises of the “Dirty Cat” Ernie Ladd. He promises you this and he promises you that and it all sounds great. He tells you all the times the sport of Wrestling has wronged his people and that it is time to stand up for yourself. Well, I promise you this Bad News Allen, this week in Houston I’m going to make you wish you never came back to the NWA. Make you wish you never even heard of Ernie Ladd and then I’m going for you Ernie Ladd. You got a long term memory problem. You seem to forget that it was me who put you out the sport of Wrasslin. It was who he slammed you to the mat and ended your career. Now I’m going for you again. This time you won’t be so lucky. I’m going to end more than your career! Bill Watts: Some angry words from Hacksaw Butch Reed but who can blame him. We have all seen what Ernie Ladd can do and this time, his interference stole the belt from Hacksaw Butch Reed and this week in Houston he is coming with two goals in mind. Get his Mid-South title back and get revenge on Ernie Ladd and his man, Bad News Allen. First though, he must try to find a way past the dangerous Black Bart. MAIN EVENT: Hacksaw Butch Reed defeated Black Bart when he followed up a Press Slam with a Top Rope Football Tackle Ernie Ladd and Bad News Allen had come out to ringside during the match and it seemed like they were poised to attack Reed to make sure he never made it to Houston. In fact, there distraction almost cost Reed this match as Bart took control of the match when Reed went to the ropes and dared Allen to get in the ring. Bart came from behind with a big elbow to the back of the head and then went on the offensive. He had Reed in such a bad way that he was confident to climb to the top rope for the as Trash Compacter (double leg drop) but Reed moved at the last second. Reed recovered first and took control for the last time. After the 3-count, Allen hit the ring only to be met with multiple right hands by Reed. Allen fell through the ropes as Reed dared him to come back. Ladd begged him not to and the dastardly duo left for the locker room as Reed sucked in all the cheers from the crowd. Jim Ross: What a night of wrestling it has been folks. Make sure to join us right here on the Superstation next week for another exciting hour of Mid-South Wrestling. Fans anywhere near Houston get your tickets for Friday night at the Sam Houston Coliseum. It is going to be a heck of a night of Wrestling. So long everybody! DARK MATCHES: (Mostly used this week to see how the fans react to some new talent in Mid-South) “Canadian” Ben Bassarab defeats Rotten Ron Starr with a Diving Cross Body Block “The Mighty Yankee” Billy Jack Strong defeats Mike Graham with a powerslam Rocky Johnson defeated “Hollywood” John Tatum with rapid fire punches followed up by a missile dropkick. Bob Roop and Crusher Blackwell wrestled to a DDQ as they brawled out on the floor. Jake Roberts defeated Norvel Austin with the DDT.

    Continental Championship Wrestling

    WOW! First of all, as I was reading the Gilberts vs The Studd Stable, I kept saying to myself was this violent post match attack going to be allowed in the new NWA. Right as I thought that, here comes Les with the 90 suspension. WOW. I liked how all 3 teams in the ring stopped their brawl right away after the warning. This showed Les has gotten through. NEVER... NEVER... NEVER did I expect the Mulligan turn. He has some explanining to do. Awesome show that the fans of CCW will be talking about forever.

    It is all very interesting and very well done. It also gives you a lot of possible twists and turns down the road. NIce work.

    Western States Wrestling

    Wow... the NWA officials are on the rampage. Dusek comes down right away and suspends or fines on the spot. Maybe the NWA is having money problems. LOL Jumbo is a very interesting wrestler. He is with Tojo but is usually very respectable to his opponents. Here he accepts the handshake from Dutch! I like it a lot but wonder what Tojo thinks about it. Embry survives the first big match of the week... can he beat the Rebel next? Pride in a draw with Whatley... he deserves a title shot now. Slick better start saving for his fine now as he might need to get invilved if the belt is on the line. Rufus... what are you thinking. YOu can't headbutt a hockey mask! Very creative!! Nice win for The Brotherhood! Dusek still trying to earn some more cash for the NWA!!

    Western States Wrestling

    Awesome show. I like how you tied in Watts and chaos across the entire NWA. Sullivan being fined 50,000 and suspended is interesting. He will either steal the money or just go on to torment another promotion. This one is good to watch! Embry was awesomely rude on the mic today! It will be interesting to see if he is still the champ when the week is done. Dutch-Jumbo.... Solid feud going on here but Jumbo might just be a bit more than Dutch can handle. We will see. Akbar and Devastation Inc seemed poised to take over for any missing heelish tactics with the Dungeon of Doom being out a week.

    Continental Championship Wrestling

    Wow... What a show! Great job with Thatcher and Watts talking about the Rich incident. I have a feeling he might find 100,000 dollars from somewhere but he better do it before someone gets the masks off the Interns. Brign Buddy Back.... very interesting! You can go a long way putting down RPG but is he to be trusted? Woman & Man... It has begun! TA bringing in Dusty and Mulligan would have brought the house down. I'm glad Dusty is in CCW and you are magic with the interviews. I found him difficult to write for but you will make him huge! The Tourny in DOthan will be great. Like how SBS & Savanah Jack kept the Rich's out. Ron Bass with help from Olympia? CCW is a wild,wild territory now. Makes for such a great read.

    AWA Major League Wrestling

    Awesome TV show! I am always up for more Lawler-Idol. Earthquake Ferris contnues his rise. Ronnie Garvin with a nice win. GLad to see him getting some attention in Dawn of War. It seems we have all used him but not to the level he might have been in real life. Great Superfly promo... interested to see how he fares against Dream. King Curtis is one scary dude! Morrow better have someone better than Fergie this time for the Bruise Brothers! Can't wait to see the RnR-Fab One Feud! WHAT A GREAT SEGMENT WITH GREG GAGNE!! From the match and the interference. To the interview with the bribe with the cigars to the family feud with Greg and Dad. Really well built and done!!! The fans at the Cook Convention Center got their moneys worth. Bruise Brothers with the DQ win over the Fab Ones.... Those Fab Ones are getting real dirty. I once read that that McMahon had called up Eddie Graham down in Florida looking for a babyface names Bob Backlund who he wanted for a World Title run. Graham tried to talk him out of it and give him Steve Keirn for that roll as he was better on the Mic and could eventually have a good heel turn. It would have been interesting. And what will become of Ox after the loss by Beast of Burden

    Nice week of action in WSW. Pride better find someone to keep control of that Golden Spike or else he is in some real trouble. OMG is really winning some big matches here. You are building him into a true force. Nice job. Love the main event chaos!!

    Great house show. As I was reading the event, I thought it couldn't get much better then Windham/Simmons vs Miller and Hansen but then get 3 more matches that were equally exciting. Bigelow ... THe Harts... Adams... Yamada... Pillman.... Star power all over the event + each of these guys desreved all the attention they got as they could really wrestle.

    Really enjoyed the first show! Interesting to see a ref listen to someone for a change. I thought the stipulations and result of the main event was really well done. You hyped this one up with the possibilty of a title change but then left them out of the result which leaves us fans begging for more.

    Mid-South Wrestling

    BARTON COLISEUM: LITTLE ROCK ARKANSAS: JULY 24, 1986 (ON LOCAL AFFIATES IN THE MID-SOUTH TERRITORY) Jim Ross: Welcome everybody to another hour of Power Pro Wrestling; bringing you the best Mid-South Wrestling has to offer. I’m Jim Ross and what a show we have instore for you as we get ready for the big card this week at the Riverside Centroplex in Baton Rouge. Michael Hayes will be taking on Jerry Oates. “Gorgeous” Jimmy Garvin will take on Larry Cheatum. Black Bart is back and faces Verlon Biggs. Patriot DJ Peterson looks to take out The Cuban Assassin. It will be Crusher Blackwell and “The Mighty Yankee” Billy Jack Strong where the winner gets to face Bad News Allen for the Mid-South Title this week in Baton Rouge and in the Main Event today, it will be “The Russian Bear” Ivan Koloff vs Bruiser Brody. Let’s get the action started. MATCH: Michael Hayes defeats Jerry Oates with the running bulldog. Before the match started, Michael Hayes made his way to the ring with a walking stick and wearing dark sunglasses; pretending to be blind. After he won his match, he put on the silly attire and struggled to find his way to Jim Ross for his post-match interview. Jim Ross: Okay Michael Hayes. Enough is enough. I know what you are trying to do and this is a low blow even for you. Michael Hayes: If I’ve told you once Jim Ross, I’ve told you a thousand times. Once a Freebird, always a Freebird. I was just trying to walk a mile in my brother Bam Bam’s shoes. To see what it feels like to be blind as a rat. Jim Ross: The saying is blind as a bat. Michael Hayes: Bat… Rat… Who cares? We all know what you are Terry Gordy…. A Rat! Some people in Mid-South Wrestling are saying Michael how could you do what you did? How can you show no remorse for your old friend? Friends don’t turn on each other Gordy. You turned on me! Don’t blame me if I’m just better at the game. Don’t blame me if your career is over. You mess with the best and you’re going to get burned! As Michael Hayes goes off the air, Jim Ross lets us know that there is no good news coming out of Pensacola this week as doctors say there hasn’t been any improvement in the vision of Terry Gordy. COMMERCIALS + PROMOS FOR BATON ROUGE MATCH: “Gorgeous” Jimmy Garvin defeats Larry Cheatum with the Brainbuster During his post-match interview, Garvin is fuming about how Ernie Ladd messed with Precious last week in New Orleans and is blaming Ladd for him not being the Mid-South Champion right now. Garvin demands a rematch in two weeks in Shreveport. This demand brings out “Gorgeous” Gary Young who is sick and tired of everyone else getting title shots. He goes on to explain how Crusher Blackwell and The Mighty Yankee are wrestling today to get a title shot and know this loser in front of him (Jimmy Garvin) who stole his nickname wants to get a second title shot before he gets his first. Garvin takes offense to being called a loser and the two get in each other’s faces. Peace prevails for the moment until Young wonders how someone as ugly as Garvin got someone as fine as Precious. Young steps over to Precious and something in Garvin just snaps. It is like he is seeing Ernie Ladd looming over Precious again like he did in New Orleans. Wrestlers from the back come out and help restore order in this one! COMMERCIALS + PROMOS FOR BATON ROUGE When we come out of break, Sheik Adnan Al Kassie and his entire stable of sell-outs are with him. (Leduc, Jake “The Snake” and the Masked Superstars) Sheik, after his Arabic welcome, is very excited as his plan to control American Wrestling is coming together. This week in Baton Rouge, after his Masked Superstars defeat Ted Dibase and Dr. Death, they will be the new World Tag Team Champions. He does remind everyone that he is still in search of the perfect wrestler to join his Army and he has 1,000,000 dollars in the last brief case for that person. All of a sudden Carl Fergie comes out to the interview desk. Carl Fergie: Sheik, you may not know me but I’m Carl Fergie and I’m your man. For the contents of that briefcase, I will help you control professional wrestling. You see, I was once like you. Rich beyond my wildest dreams. Unfortunately, that money was stolen from me but that is a story for another day. I am also the greatest wrestler this country has ever seen but so many here in America have turned their back on King Carl Fergie. Many have even called my skills Priceless but I have no loyalty to them. I want… no, …. I need to be rich again. To have the nicest clothes. The fancy cars. The private airplanes. The best food. The most attractive women. I need it all and it is my wrestling ability that will give it to me. So, Sheik, what do you say? Sheik Adnan: Mr. Fergie… I’m going to be honest with you. I’ve never seen you wrestle. In fact, I’ve never even heard of you so I can’t be sure if you are trying to, as you Americans say, pull the wool over my eyes. I would need to see your skills in the ring… To give you a little test. How about this? I am having a little problem right now and if you can take care of that problem for me, I will give you the contents of the briefcase. Carl Fergie: Sounds good to me. Sheik: Okay, here is the deal… you take care of Hacksaw Butch Reed for me this week in Baton Rouge, and you will be the winner of the last briefcase. Carl Fergie accepts the challenge but doesn’t look as confident as he hid a few minutes ago when he thought he might be able to just talk his way into the briefcase. MATCH: Black Bart defeats Verlon Biggs with the Texas Trash Compacter In a quick post-match interview, Bart is his normal disgusting self and is once again screaming about the lack of competition here in Mid-South. When Jim Ross explains that he will be facing a former Mid-South Champion this week in Baton Rouge, Black Bart is intrigued and demands to know who. When Jim Ross says it will be Mike George, Bart has a good ol’laugh. There is a stir in the crowd as some newer fans question the person next to them about who Mike George is while others are excited as they remember Mike George from a few years back and remember that he is a guy who can really mix it up in the ring and never backed down from anyone. COMMERCIALS + PROMOS FOR BATON ROUGE When we come out of break, Hacksaw Butch Reed, Ted Dibiase and Dr. Death are at the interview desk with Jim Ross. Hacksaw Butch Reed can’t help but laugh as he says that if the Sheik thinks he can take care of Butch Reed with the likes of Carl Fergie he is even dumber then he looks. Dibiase and Dr. Death can’t wait to put the Masked Superstars down in Baton Rouge and even tease the fact that they are going for the masks. Dibiase spends a minute on how everyone in Mid-South is talking about the Million Dollar briefcase. Dibiase lets everyone know that whoever takes that briefcase is the lowest of the low. To turn your back on America and sell-out to the Sheik would be such a low thing to do. It would have to be someone as low as Tommy Rich who piledrove his own mother. Dibiase explains that last week in New Orleans, that briefcase was just lying on the ground in front of him and he could have simply picked it up and walked out of Lakefront Arena with a million dollars but he would never be able to even look himself in the mirror. Dr. Death is all business and can’t wait to get a hold of Masked Superstar #1 and Masked Superstar #2 and slam their heads together that they look like Siamese Twins! MATCH Patriot DJ Peterson defeats The Cuban Assassin by DQ Alexis Smirnoff rushed the ring and attacked Peterson and the Red Assassins had their way for a minute with Peterson until his Patriot teammate, Todd Champion hit the ring and we had a good brawl. When all was said and done, it was the Patriots in the ring and the Red Assassins tossed out of the floor without the courage to get back in the ring and continue the fight. The Patriots got a thunderous ovation from the crowd in Little Rock. COMMERCIALS + PROMOS FOR BATON ROUGE When we come back from break, Jim Ross is with Bruiser Brody who is angry that last week in New Orleans, Ivan Koloff tried to trip him and that cost him his match with Nikita and that right now he should be the NWA World Heavyweight Champion. He lets everyone know just what he is going to do to Ivan Koloff tonight, right here on TV. #1 CONTENDER’S MATCH: Winner gets a shot at the Mid-South Title this week in Baton Rouge “The Mighty Yankee” Bill Jack Strong vs Crusher Blackwell Each wrestler gets some time to wrestle on the top and it is obvious that the Mighty Yankee is quickly becoming one of the most hated men in all of Mid-South. The boos were out early today as he grabbed the microphone from Jim Ross and asked the people if they talked so slow because it takes their small brains time to process each word. In the end, Crusher had used his weight to his advantage and looked to be in control. Give Billy Jack his due, he was going to do anything he could to earn the title shot as he shoved Blackwell right into the ref, Alfred Neely. With Neely down, the Mighty Yankee reached into his trunks for some sort of weapon and clobbered Crusher with it. Give Neeley some credit here as Mid-South refs have taken some severe criticism of late, but while he was down, he was still focused on the match and saw The Mighty Yankee use the weapon. Neely called for the bell and gave the win to Blackwell by DQ. The Mighty Yankee turns his attention to Neely and is so angry he is about to hit Neely but Blackwell recovers and to the delight of the fans, hits the Yankee from behind and then scoops him up for the Airplane Spin/Drop. The fans are grateful to the man from Stone Mountain, Georgia for putting down the Mighty Yankee. COMMERCIALS + PROMOS FOR BATON ROUGE After break we have Ernie Ladd and Bad News Allen at the interview desk Jim Ross: Ernie Ladd, last week you used intimidation of a special lady, Precious to help your man retain the Mid-South title against Jimmy Garvin. What tricks do you have up your sleeve to deal with Crusher Blackwell this week in Baton Rouge? Ernie Ladd: Here we go again. There is always someone with a tainted view of things trying to keep the Big Cat down. Look at the tape Jim Ross…. Did I lay a figure on anyone last week? Who attacked who? It was Jimmy Garvin who attacked me. He is the one who should be suspended. He is the one who should be fined. The question is whether or not that Big Dummy Bill Watts will do anything about it… We all know the answers… Bill Watts would never suspend one of his guys… Jim Ross: I think you are forgetting he recently suspended Dusty Rhodes for 3 months. Ernie Ladd: Come on Ross… Rhodes set someone on fire! He literally tried to burn the Sheik to death. Imagine if I did that. I would be locked up and the key would be thrown away… Just another example of the injustices! Jim Ross, not sure what to say, turns back to the match coming up against Crusher Blackwell. Bad News Allen: Look at Crusher Blackwell… the size… the power… the speed… the agility…. He has it all…. except one thing…. A TITLE. You ask yourself why does Blackwell never win the big matches. The answer is simple… he is a loser…. A big fat loser. Now ask yourself this. What will Bad News Allen do to a loser. That’s right people you got it. Now help your fat friend there and call his doctor now. Make sure the doctor is free on Friday. Tell him to drop all his plans and get to Baton Rouge because Crusher Blackwell is going to need him. COMMERCIALS + PROMOS FOR BATON ROUGE MAIN EVENT: Brusier Brody vs “The Russian Bear” Ivan Koloff Interesting part here is that Nikita comes out with Ivan and U.S. Steel comes out with Brody. The two teams are jawing at each other from the get go. Brody, still fuming from Ivan costing him the World Title, attacks before the bell and we are under way with a huge brawl. After a few minutes Nikita jumps up on the apron and distracts Brody. With Brody looking at Nikita, Ivan rushes in from behind. WHAM! Brody moved at the last second and Ivan hit Nikita with a running knee to the chest. Nikita falls to the floor and Ivan looks at his nephew in shock. WHAM… Brody from behind with a big mauling knee lift. 1…2…3! Brody gets a little revenge on Ivan with the victory here but Ross explains that he and U.S. Steel will be looking for more this week in Baton Rouge as they will take on the Koloffs. Jim Ross: So long folks. Don’t forget to join us this Friday in Baton Rouge at the Riverside Centroplex. So long from the Razorback State.

    Mid-South Wrestling

    LAKEFRONT ARENA NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA JULY 24, 1986 Jim Ross: Welcome everybody to another hour of Mid-South Wrestling coming to you this week from The Lakefront Arena in New Orleans. I’m Jim Ross and my partner today is none other than NWA President, Cowboy Bill Watts. Bill, what an exciting night of wrestling this is going to be. Cowboy Bill Watts: That’s right Jim. We have 4 huge matches for you. First, we will see the television debut of Rocky Johnson vs “No Class” Donny Bass. Jim Ross: Fans, for those of you who don’t know Rocky Johnson, you’re in for a real treat. Cowboy Bill Watts: You said a mouth full there Jim. Next, we will have a #1 Contenders match for the NWA Jr. Heavyweight Title between Ben Bassarab and the Masked Rebel. The winner will be taking on the champ, Eric Embry, next week in Baton Rouge. Also on today’s show, it will be a Mid-South Title Match as Bad News Allen with Ernie Ladd will defend his title against “Gorgeous” Jimmy Garvin who will be accompanied to the ring by the lovely Precious. That’s not all folks…. Listen to this main event…. It will be a 6 Man Tag Team Match between Hacksaw Butch Reed, Ted Dibiase and Dr. Death Steve Williams vs Sheik Adnan Al Kassie’s men, Jake “The Snake” Roberts and the Masked Superstars. Jim Ross: Wow, what a night of wrestling it is going to be but before we get to all the action, I must ask you a question Bill. I know you and the NWA Board of Directors meet this week to discuss what to do with the constant outside interference by Ernie Ladd and the Sheik. Can you give us any insight as to what happened at the meeting. Watts: I’m glad you asked me that Jim. We did meet this week and to tell you the truth, everybody left that meeting a little frustrated. There is so much nonsense going on around the NWA that we know something has to be done. We got Tommy “Wildfire” Rich piledriving his OWN mother in Continental Championship Wrestling. We have the chaos of Kevin Sullivan in Western States Wrestling to go along with the shenanigans of Tojo Yamamoto and Slick. Here we got Ernie Ladd and Sheik Adnan Al Kassie. The problem is that fines and suspensions seem to have little effect. I mean Sheik Adnan Al Kassie has more money than all of us combined and if we were to suspend someone like Ernie Ladd, he would have us in a courtroom til the cows came home. We are still looking for solutions. We have discussed adding more referees and even putting two refs on certain very important matches. The NWA Board of Directors and myself will continue to discuss this problem and we will do what is best for the entire NWA. I promise you that. Jim Ross: There you have it fans. I, for one, hope that whatever you do, it makes the likes of Ernie Ladd and Sheik Adnan think twice before they involve themselves in another match. Let’s get to the ring. MATCH “Soul Man” Rocky Johnson vs “No Class” Donny Bass Johnson comes out to “Soul Man” by Sam and Dave and the music alone has the crowd on their feet dancing. Most of the Mid-South crowd has never seen Rocky before as cable TV is just starting to come to most of Louisiana. They are amazed at his physique. Bass seems not to notice that his conditioning comes up a little short in this one and as arrogantly as could be, he gets right in the face of Rocky and starts jawing. As the bout begins, we get a few collar and elbow lockups where Johnson simply pushes Bass to the corner and offers a clean break. Problem was that as he stepped back for the third time, Bass caught him with a low blow. Bass, smirking and taunting the crowd, uses a lot of questionable tactics for the next minute or two before Rocky has had enough and goes off like a house a fire. After a few dropkicks, Rocky hits the Soul Man Shuffle which is his boxing footwork followed by a nasty punching combo. To add insult to injury, Rocky locks in the Boston Crab and arches all the way back and Bass is screaming in agony as he submits. Post-Match Interview where Jim Ross welcomes Rocky Johnson to Mid-South Wrestling. Rocky Johnson: Thank you Jim. It is a pleasure to be here and I’m looking forward to competing against all of the great wrestlers here in Mid-South and showing these fans everything I have. After the interview, Hacksaw Butch Reed and the NWA World Tag Team Champions, Ted Dibiase and “Dr. Death” Steve Williams stop by the podium. Butch Reed: We heard Bill Watts out here earlier saying that he still needs to figure out what needs to be done with the likes of Ernie Ladd and Sheik Adnan Al-Kassie. Well, I tell ya what. I’m sick and tired of them getting involved in my matches and if it keeps happening, I’m going to take matters into my own hands. I got no problem slamming that Big Cat Ernie Ladd all over the Mid-South and then I’ll rip that towel right off the skull of Sheik Adnan and stick it where the sun don’t shine. I should still be the Mid-South champion and if anyone, that includes you Jake “The Snake” Roberts gets in my way of getting that belt back, their going to get hurt. Ted Dibiase: No matter where Doc and I go, people think they are tough enough to take our NWA World Titles. We go to Western States Wrestling and these no-good Japs steal our titles cause they know they can’t beat us. The Funks try and take the belts here and go run and hide. Look what happened when we found you Terry… Look what happened we found you Dory… That’s right… we simply beat you from pillar to post and took back what’s ours in the first place. Then over their in Alabama, Tommy Rich tries to have his mother do his fighting for him and that didn’t work too well in the end… Speaking of the end… that looks like some inbreeding their if you ask me….. And Now… here in Mid-South… we got two men wearing masks over their ugly faces thinking they can jump us from behind and take our titles…. Tell em Doc how that is going to work out. Dr. Death: Masked Superstars… you may be big and strong. We’re bigger and stronger. You may be great wrestlers. We’re better. You may be mean and tough. We’re meaner and tougher. You may have towel-head in your corner…. That only makes us stronger, better, meaner and tougher cause we hate anyone who comes into this great country and puts down anything that America stands for. I promise you Masked Superstars… whenever this is all said and done, we will have ripped those masks off your heads and you two ugly dogs will be running out of Mid-South with your tail between you legs…. AND IT STARTS TONIGHT! COMMERCIALS + PROMOS FOR RIVERSIDE CENTROPLEX-BATON ROUGE Before we head to the #1 contenders match for the NWA Jr. Heavyweight Champion, we see a taped interview from the NWA Jr. Heavyweight Champion, Eric Embry. Eric Embry: Fans in Mid-South Wrestling… I know your excited. Your excited that next week in Baton Rouge, I, Eric Embry will be there to defend my NWA Jr. Heavyweight Title. Yes… we know you are excited to see my wrestling talents but for many of you of the female persuasion, you are excited to just see me. Can’t say that feeling is mutual. I mean have any of you ever heard of salad!! Woof Woof. Now I guess I should talk about my potential challengers… Ben Bassaddoooo or something like that and the Rebel but why should I waste my breath on either of them as we all know that they got no chance in the ring with me. #1 CONTENDERS MATCH FOR THE NWA JR. TITLE “Canadian” Ben Bassarab vs The Rebel Interesting thing here was that it was the one with the nickname of Canadian who was the one acting like the babyface while the one with the Confederate flag mask was using some very heelish tactics. In the end, Bassarab came off the ropes with the crossbody block but The Rebel used the momentum to roll this into his own pin attempt…. With a grab of the tights…. 1…2…3! The Rebel with the win and will go on to face Eric Embry next week in Baton Rouge. It is not so much what was said in the post-match interview but how it was said. The Rebel had a very raspy face… one that seemed to have been affected by too much Jack Daniels in his life. The crowd knew they had heard this voice before and the murmurs started to go around the crowd. COMMERCIALS + PROMOS FOR RIVERSIDE CENTROPLEX-BATON ROUGE When we come out of break, Ernie Ladd and Bad News Allen are with Jim Ross. Ernie Ladd: Hahahahaha…. Bill Watts… you big dummy! I told ya there was nothing you could to do to stop me and Bad News Allen here in Mid-South Wrestling. You got Butch Reed out here earlier talking about who he is going to punch next and where he is going to stick Sheik Adnan’s traditional Arabian garments but Watts thinks he needs to control me. Wake up Watts… stop the double standards. Just because Butch Reed is an Uncle Tom don’t mean you can go around punishing me for protecting my man Bad News Allen from the self-admitted violent criminal Butch Reed. Suspend me Watts and I will haul your big ugly rear end into court so fast, you won’t be able to finish eating your grits. By the way… that will be Federal Court so all your look-a-like-croonies won’t be able to help you no more! Now Bad News… tell these fans what we got instore for Jimmy Garvin in just a few minutes. Bad News Allen: My pleasure Mr. Ladd. Jimmy Garvin… call your friends. Call your Mama. Call anyone who knew you as a little boy. Tell them to save any pictures they got of you just so people can remember what you looked like before you stepped into the ring with Bad News. After the match, that cute little Precious is going to call all of those people back and the call will start like this…. Mama Garvin…. I got some Bad News! MID-SOUTH TITLE MATCH: Bad News Allen © with Ernie Ladd vs “Gorgeous” Jimmy Garvin with Precious While the opening doesn’t go so well for Garvin, he won’t go down without a fight. With the crowd completely behind him, Garvin is fighting with everything he has and the champ is reeling. While this is going on, a camera picks up Ernie Ladd strutting over to Precious. The Big Cat is towering over Precious with an evil grin on his face… Precious, out of pure fear, let’s out a monster scream. Garvin sees what is going on and rushes out to help Precious. WHAM…. Garvin with a running forearm to the back of Ernie Ladd. Ladd is down and Garvin is all over him like white on rice! Here comes Bad News Allen. WHAM… Ghetto Blaster on Garvin. Precious sprints to the locker room out of fear. Bad News gives a few more blows to Garvin before getting back in the ring. 7…8…9…10. Jimmy Garvin has been counted out. Jim Ross once again blames Ernie Ladd as it was Ladd who went over to Precious and put the fear of God in her forcing Jimmy Garvin to come to her aid! COMMERCIALS + PROMOS FOR RIVERSIDE CENTROPLEX-BATON ROUGE When we come out of break, Sheik Adnan Al Kassie is with Jos Leduc, The Masked Superstars and Jake “The Snake” Roberts. Jim Ross: I see you still have one briefcase. Does that mean that you are still looking to expand your stable and are the “gentlemen” behind me, official under your management? Sheik Adnan: (first utters his Arabic greeting to Jim Ross) Yes… Jim Ross… my army of men is almost complete. I have the most dangerous men in all of wrestling. The quickness with which he strikes will bring me even greater fame and fortune. I’m talking about one Jake “The Snake” Roberts. Next, I have the greatest tag team in Wrestling today. The Mid-South Tag Team Champions… The Masked Superstars who will demolish anything in their way. Plus, the protector of both my interest and theirs… the Mercenary… Jos Leduc. Jim Ross: And the briefcase… Sheik Adnan: Ah yes. The briefcase. Inside of this briefcase is One Million Dollars. While I have already paid these men behind me a great sum of money, I am saving the best for last. One more wrestler… one with such ability that I will become unstoppable.. He will be paid the largest sum of money ever given to any wrestler but he will be well worth. He will make me proud. He will make the Colonel back in Iraq proud. He will be the next NWA World Champion and then the title will return to my homeland never to be seen in America again. Jim Ross: First of all gentlemen, (speaking to Roberts, Leduc and the Masked Superstars) I am shocked and disappointed that you would side with the Sheik for money. Secondly Sheik, who is this last wrestler who you feel will take you over the top? Sheik: Time will be the ultimate decision maker. While I have narrowed the selection down to two, I will have to continue to monitor the situation. MAIN EVENT: Jake “The Snake” Roberts & The Masked Superstars vs Hacksaw Butch Reed & The NWA World Tag Team Champions, Ted Dibiase and “Dr Death” Steve Williams Complete chaos where everyone gets a chance to shine. Interesting thing here was that neither Leduc or the Sheik attempted to get involved in the least. The Sheik was content to sit back and watch an all-out war. In the end, we unfortunately run out TV time during a segment of the match where all 6 men are in the ring brawling all over the arena. Jim Ross: Sorry folks, we are out of time for this edition of Mid-South Wrestling. Make sure to join us next week right here on the Superstation. So long from the Pelican State! After we go off the air, Sheik and Leduc no longer sit idle. Leduc tries to clobber Dibiase with the briefcase but Dibiase blocks it. Jake Roberts saw this as his chance and attacked from behind but Dibiase seemed to have eyes in the back of his head…. Leduc with a second swing of the briefcase…. WHAM… Leduc hits Snake. Dibiase takes over now and hits a Suplex on Snake. 1…2…3! The briefcase is on the floor. Dibiase looks at it for a second and then goes to celebrate with Doc and Hacksaw. DARK MATCHES FOR THE FANS AT THE LAKEFRONT ARENA Bob Roop wrestles Norvel Austin to a 10 minute draw. After the match, the two wrestlers shake hands. The problem for Austin came when he turned away from Roop, Roop caught him with a nasty shoulder break followed by a few kicks to the prone body of Austin. Roop left to a chorus of boos. The Patriots (DJ Peterson & Todd Champion) defeat the Red Assassins (Alexis Smirnoff & The Cuban Assassin) when the mighty Champion locked in the Torture Rack on The Cuban Assassin and forced a submission. Crusher Blackwell & “The Mighty Yankee” Billy Jack Strong wrestled to a double countout as the two brawled on the outside of the ring. U.S Steel defeated “The Russian Bear” Ivan Koloff by DQ as Koloff clobbered U.S. with a small chain that was seen by the referee. Harley Race defeated Jos Leduc with a top rope diving headbut after the Sheik had accidently hit Leduc with his briefcase of cash. Sheik Adnan Al Kassie was forced to open that briefcase and pay Harley Race $5000.00 NWA WORLD TITLE MATCH “The Russian Nightmare” Nikita Koloff defeated Bruiser Brody with a Russian Sickle. Brody gave Koloff everything he could handle, but Uncle Ivan made his presence felt when he almost tripped Bordy. Brody turned to warn Ivan not to do that again but when he turned around… major Russian sickle. U.S. Steel rushed to the ring to make sure there were no other attacks on Brody!

    Love the added feelings of the crowd as they left the arena. I have only been to one show in my life and I could see the crowd erupting in anger if Sgt. Slaughter beat Andre the Giant. I bet that happened a lot. Awesome last few matches! Like that the Russians are hunting Magnum T.A. Not the hefty Interns????.... hmmmmm Lets get to Dothan!

    Western States Wrestling

    First for the TV show... Nice first win for Pride but then he has some big words for Sullivan and crew. he better be ready. 3-1 for OMG.... The babyfaces better beware!! The Moondog attacks a fan!!! Typical member of a Sullivan crew. Will be interesting to see if anything comes of this. Watts is a very busy man as he try to sort of Wildfire attacking his mother in CCW, Moondog attacking fans in WSW and Ladd and Sheik Adnan in Mid-South!! And let's add Slick to the issue of what to do with the managers and chaos around the NWA as he helps Shaska survuve a TV title match On to the Sports Arena I had a feeling that Tyree was in trouble. OMG contiunes to rise up the ranks... He is going to be a Monster Heel in WSW Great match with the Funks and Super D's... you have really put together a nice tag division. Slater vs Jumbo is a nice main event that would sell some major tickets. Can't wait for the next TV show to see if this is a one and done event or if it will turn into a major feud.

    Very interesting stroyline with Madusa and the rest of the monsters. Was the DQ on purpose as she didn't want another monster other than herself to have a title? Only time will tell.

    OH MY GOD..... TOMMY JUST PILEDROVE HIS OWN MOTHER!!!! HE IS THE BEST (WORST) HEEL IN WRESTLING HISTORY!!! Magnum was very humble in defeat as would be expected. I am interested to see which way you go with his match vs Mr. Olympia. Either wat has so many positives!! Looking forward to see what happens to the CCW tag titles.... Humperdink has one NASTY TEAM.... a win over Scott and Steve would be a huge push that would draw big heat. Looking forward again to seeing how you write this one up. The banter between Solie and RPG is one of the reasons I enjoy your shows so much. Cooley better be careful with Ron Bass. I understand why Olympia is not happy having to face T.A. but it is time to step up! WOW.... shocker #2 for the night (Piledriver for Peggy #1).... Landel wants the help of the fans to bring him back.... While I never thought this was possible before, he does promise some things the fans would love. VERY INTERESTING ANGLE YOU HAVE CREATED HERE, INCLUDING THE PAID ADVERTISMENT. I think it was a great job to bring back the U.S. Jr title as it gives you a way to get some of your midcard guys in matches that seem really important. This might have been your best show yet. While some of your interviews in the past had me cracking up, the shock value of this show would be talked about FOREVER!

    Very realistic house show that helps to finish off some wrestlers while pushing the major angle of Lawler vs Idol. Also helsp to push someone like Ito who is not too familiar with the fans. Nice job.

    Mid-South Wrestling

    WITH JIM ROSS JULY 17, 1986 RAPIDES PARRISH COLISEUM: ALEXANDRIA, LA (ON LOCAL AFFIATES IN THE MID-SOUTH TERRITORY) Jim Ross: Welcome everybody to another hour of Power Pro Wrestling; bringing you the best Mid-South Wrestling has to offer. I’m Jim Ross and what a show we have instore for you as we get ready for the big card this week at the Lakefront Arena in New Orleans where it will be Bruiser Brody taking on Nikita Koloff. They will both be with us tonight. We will also have the Red Assassins in action as Alexis Smirnoff and The Cuban Assassin take on the Batten twins. U.S. Steel will be taking on “No Class” Donny Bass. “The Mighty Yankee” Steve Strong will be here as will be Crusher Blackwell. Jimmy Garvin, who will be getting a Mid-South Title match in New Orleans with be taking on “Iron” Mike Sharpe and in the Main Event, it will be Jake “The Snake” Roberts taking on Hacksaw Butch Reed. That and much, much more. Let’s get to the ring for our first match. MATCH: The Red Assassins (Smirnoff & The Cuban Assassin defeat The Batten Twins after Smirnoff followed up some questionable tactics on Bart with a Russian Legsweep. In their post-match interview, The Red Assassins really got under the skin of the fans with their Anti-American rhetoric as they explained why people of a democracy will always fail when compared to Mother Russia and the Super-Advanced Cuba. Not only had the fans had enough but so had The Patriots (DJ Peterson and Todd Champion) who came out to confront and challenge the Red Assassins to a match this Friday at Lakefront Arena. The challenge was accepted but when the Patriots turned to hype of the USA chant, they were attacked from behind. The attack was quick but violent and left the Patriots on the floor as the Red Assassins, feeling their work was down, gave one last comment on the inferiority of America and headed to the locker room. COMMERCIALS + PROMOS FOR LAKE FRONT ARENA MATCH: U.S. STEEL DEFEATS “No Class” Donny Bass with a big Powerslam A quick interview to hype up what U.S. Steel is all about and we head right back to the ring for our next bout. MATCH: Bruiser Brody runs wild over Hollywood John Tatum with the final blow coming with the mauling knee lift. The fans really enjoyed seeing the crybaby Tatum running for cover throughout this beat down but they were bothered by the NWA World Champion, Nikita Koloff and Uncle Ivan joining Jim Ross during the match explaining how Brody was inferior to the Russian Nightmare and while he may be able to look good against someone like Tatum, the Russian Nightmare was going to tear Brody apart in New Orleans. Ivan tried to explain to the fans that while people here may think Brody is some sort of tough guy, some sort of Wildman, Nikita is the perfect athlete that cannot be stopped by someone who is so limited in his wrestling ability like Bruiser Brody. As soon as Brody hit the knee lift on Tatum, both Nikita and Ivan hit the ring to attack Brody, but he was ready and quickly knocked them from the ring. Before the Russians could regroup, U.S. Steel hit the ring and he and Brody dared the Russians to come back in the ring but they decided to wait for New Orleans. U.S. Steel and Brody head to Jim Ross and Brody is like a caged animal wanting to get at Nikita NOW! U.S. Steel also tired of all the nonsense tonight, challenged Ivan to a match in New Orleans. COMMERCIAL BREAK + PROMOS FOR NEW ORLEANS Before our next match, Bad News Allen and Ernie Ladd are at the interview desk where they are having a grand ol’ time explaining what they are going to do that pretty boy, Jimmy Garvin when they get their hands on him in New Orleans. Jim Ross stirs the pot a little as he says that NWA President Bill Watts and the NWA Board of Directors are meeting at this very minute to discuss the constant interference from Ernie Ladd. Ernie Ladd: Here we go again. That big dummy Bill Watts can’t stand that my managerial skills and my wrestler’s abilities can’t be stopped so he is going to try and come up with some new scheme to help out all the rednecks and Uncle Tom’s around here who bow down at his fat feet. Listen up Watts. I’ve been beating you all over this area for two decades and you can’t change it now by gathering all your sorry tie-wearing cronies in some back room making a plan to put down Ernie Ladd. We’ve been dealing with you and your types for hundreds of years and now that has all changed. Now you will deal with the rath of Ernie Ladd and Bad News Allen. When Ladd and Allen leave, Crusher Blackwell stops by on his way to the ring and explains that he is from Stone Mountain, Georgia… the home of Southern pride and history and he won’t allow someone calling himself “the Mighty Yankee” to come into his neck of the woods and put all you good people down. Jim Ross: Look out! Wham…. “The Mighty Yankee” Billy Jack Strong clobbers Blackwell with a chair. Blackwell goes down and gets 4 or 5 more big chair shots. The Mighty Yankee: You can talk all you want about Southern Pride. All I see is 400 pounds of fried road-kill laying in front of me. COMMERCIAL BREAK + PROMOS FOR NEW ORLEANS When we come back from break, Jim Ross explains that after that disgusting display by the Mighty Yankee that is obvious that there will be no match tonight between Billy Jack Strong and Crusher Blackwell but that they will meet this week in New Orleans in a No DQ Match. MATCH: “Gorgeous” Jimmy Garvin with Precious defeats “Iron” Mike Sharpe with the Brainbuster In a quick post-match interview, Garvin explains how he loves the fact that Ernie Ladd and Bad News Allen think he has no shot at winning the Mid-South Title this week in New Orleans just because he is prettier than those two goons. MAIN EVENT: Jake “The Snake” Roberts vs Hacksaw Butch Reed Interesting part here is that Sheik Adnan Al Kassie makes an appearance with Jim Ross during the bout with his bodyguard Jos Leduc. Jim Ross notices that he has only one brief case left and asks the Sheik what he did with the other briefcase full of money he saw at the Sam Houston Coliseum last night. Sheik, first says hello to all in his annoying Arabic phrases and then clearly tells Jim Ross that he will know what happened to the other briefcase when it is time for him to know but that he is building a stable like no other and will soon control American wrestling. He also told Ross not to worry about the number of briefcases as their plenty more money being made by selling his over-prices Iraqi oil to gas guzzling Americans. He asks Ross to please leave him alone know as he is very interested in the main event. Ross reminds the Sheik that it was he who interrupted the show and he would gladly leave him alone. As for the match, it is back and forth. Reed with some monster power moves and the Snake with a bunch of sudden strikes that leaves Reed struggling to find his grove. WHAM…. Leduc clobbers Reed with the briefcase but the ref saw it and called for the bell. Jim Ross: Look at this… it is Harley Race. He is after Jos Leduc. Remember folks, it was Leduc who took money from Larry Zbyszko to attack Race last year. These two have some unsettled business and it seems like Harley is here to collect his debt. There is a groan from the crowd… The Masked Superstars are in the ring and, with Roberts, the three are attacking Hacksaw Butch Reed. The groans change to cheers…. It is the NWA Tag Team Champions, Ted Dibiase and Dr. Death and they are the ring causing havoc. Soon, just as we run out of time, the fan favorites (Reed, Dibiase and Doc) gain control of the ring with the Masked Superstars and Snake looking up. Leduc and Race have brawled all the way to the locker room. Lucky for the Sheik, Leduc seemed to drop the briefcase when he was attacked by Race but the Sheik scooped it up and is holding on to it for dear life. Jim Ross: So long folks. Don’t forget to join us this Friday and Lakefront Arena. It is sure to be a wild event.
