  1. I think the AWA is firing on all cylinders right now.  I am enjoying the slow build to Superclash.  I thought the interview with Bock , while being short, was spot on.  Bock lets Steamboat know that a champion needs to get to the ring even when he gets a few bumps and bruises.  Great way to give Putski a little push.  Looking forward to the title match with Gagne.

    Nice segements with Brenda, Snuka, Dream Machine and Paul Jones, and Hennig but the promo of the night goes to Austin Idol.  What a 3rd choice!  Lawler better be ready!  Really creative booking.  

    Nice start to the national tag title match tourny.  Still love the Bruise Brothers.  If anyone gets a chance, read up on Snowman.  He was one interesting dude.


  2. Great reporting on the Magnum T.A. and Halloweeen Havoc situations.

    You gave a true MACW feel by showing the highlights from the week's big events including the tag title change.

    Good promo by Luger.  Let's see if he can back up his words.

    Good, realistic use of Foley and Chase.  I like this approach and eventually they will be ready.

    Best part of the show... Hank Hill and Dale Dribble show up!  LOL.  Hope they come back each week.  

    Really nice card for Albany.


  3. Really good show for the AWA this week.  That promo by Colon was awesome; really well done.  I like when champs lose those non-title matches.  You keep finding ways to make Gagne more interesting.  Enjoying the tag tournament.  Speaking of tag teams, The Fabs and Rock n Roll still have a long way to go.  2-0 in this means nothing.  Adias/ Hennig is interesting as it is gong to propel someone up the ranks.  Thanks for all the wok.

    On to Louisville

    Snuka might need some help.

    RnR get the win.  I have a feeling that we are going to get 4 more matches in this war!

    Lawler woulg go through 100 men to get to Idol.  Great fued


  4. As always... very entertaining.

    Slink and Madril might be having a long talk after Pride takes the cash.  This had the fans into it from the beginning.  Great show that leaves us with some questions...  What about the 10 lashes?  Slick?  RL Welch?  Whats next for Street after Lanny is now gone?  Who will help JYD and Olympia?

    Cant wait to find out as CCW continues to roll!


  5. Good show this week.  I like how you added the in-studio segments to report on Magnum.  I was looking this week to see how ot was reported in real life but all I could find was an interview with Dusty two weeks later.  Did you ever see the next show?

    Enjoying the back and forth with Platt, RPG and Thatcher.  

    Awesome to see Wildfire and BA in the tourny

    Big show coming up in Montgomery

     


  6. Enjoying the mix of vets and newcomers here in Florida.  With Sawyer, Borne and Herc, the heels seem to hold the power here in Florida but given Duggan some time to find some friends and this will be one wild place.  The tag tourny is going to be interesting as we will get a chance to see who you want to push first.  Nice job.

    Memorial Coliseum:  Shreveport, Louisiana

    October 14, 1986

    First 5 matches partially shown on Superstation 17

     

     

    First, as time continues to be an issue for me, I want to explain a couple of the angles that would have been advanced during the last Power Pro’s tv show.

    1.  NWA President, Bill Watts, hypes the next joint NWA Supercard which will be Halloween Havoc on October 31st in the Omni.  This event will include a 16-man tournament where the winner will get an NWA World Title shot.  Each of the NWA territories, Mid-South, Continental Championship Wrestling, and Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling will send 5 wrestlers to Atlanta on Halloween.  Mid-South will be sending Hacksaw Butch Reed, Rocky Johnson, Dick Murdoch, Ted Dibiase, and Bad News Allen.

    2.  Watts goes on to explain that there will be an NWA-wide Battle Royal to decide the last entrant into the tournament and that next week in Jackson, Mississippi, we will have 5 qualifying matches to see who Mid-South will be sending to the Battle Royal.

     

    Now on to this week’s show in Shreveport…

     

    Italian Stallion defeated Alaskan Hunter #1 with a powerslam but he paid the price as he was attacked by Alaskan Hunter #2 and roughed up pretty badly.

     

    The Rock n Roll vs the Batten Twins

                As Rock n Roll All Night by Kiss begins to blare from the speakers, the crowd goes wild.  Finally, the Express is back….  Hold on just a minute a minute.  Mike Davis and Tommy Lane, The Rock n Roll RPM’s make their way to the ring.  The cheers quickly change to boos and Tommy Lane does nothing to help the situation as he takes the house mic and announces that the greatest Rock n Roll tag team in history is here and there is nothing anyone in Mid-South can do about it.  As for the match, the RPM’s did nothing to win over the fans.  While they were fast-paced, it was one questionable tactic after the next.  With crowd all over them, they did the best copycat ending they could as they connected with a double dropkick in Bart Batten for the pin.

     

    Koko Ware defeats “The Cuban Assassin” with the top rope elbow drop

     

    Superstar Challenge   

    Challengers get not only the titles but $50,000 of Sheik Adnan Al Kassie’s money if they win the Mid-South Tag Team Titles:

    The Masked Superstars defeat Mike Graham & Mike George when the Superstars hit the back-breaker/elbow drop combo on Graham. 

     

    Rip Oliver vs Scott Casey with Sunshine ended in a No Contest as Tojo Yamamota and Kendo Nagasaki attacked Casey on his way to the ring.  They were obviously trying to collect the bounty.  Oliver could care less about the match and just wanted to make sure that he got his share of the $25,000 bounty someone placed on Casey.  This 3-1 attack is brutal and goes on for some time.  Finally, Koko, Italian Stallion and the Battens hit the ring and make the save.  The evil trio think they have completed the job and can be heard screaming, “where’s the money” as they head up the aisle.

     

    Dick Murdoch defeats Bad LeRoy Brown with Ernie Ladd in an all-out brawl that saw the ref miss the chair shot by Murdoch on Brown for the win.  Ernie Ladd was fuming about “how the fix was in from the beginning.”

     

    Mid-South Title Match

    Rocky Johnson © defeats Bad News Allen with Ernie Ladd by DQ as the ref caught Ladd interfering in the match with the big boot.  Again, Ladd is heard yelling about the double standard.

     

    Main Event:  6 Man Tag Match

    Freebirds (Hayes, Roberts, Garvin) with precious vs Ted Dibiase, Dr. Death & Terry Gordy

    It is obvious after a few minutes that nothing can help the Freebirds from getting a severe beating here… nothing except… Precious and a purse.

    As Gordy is roughing up Garvin, Precious climbs to the apron…

    Wham… Loaded Purse shot on Bam Bam.

    Nothing… No effect at all.  It is like a light went off in Preciou’s head as she remembered something….

    Wham.. Piledriver by Gordy on Gorgeous Jimmy

     

    Dibiase and Dr. Death make sure that the other Freebirds don’t make the save as the ref completes the 3-count.

     

    Gordy looks at Precious who just tried to knock him out with her loaded purse.  Precious drops the purse and runs to the locker room in fear.

    The crowd explodes as Sunshine appears and blocks her way.

    Gordy picks up the dropped purse and as he opens it, a huge smile comes across his face.  He pulls out a huge wad a cash.  I bet if you count it, it will be $25,000.  The exact amount of the bounty on Scott Casey.

    Precious pleads with Sunshine but to no avail.  The attack is on!

    Gordy simply puts the cash in his trunks and gives Garvin one last kick before exiting with Dibiase and Dr. Death/


  8. Just wanted to let you know that I.m keeping up with that's happening in PCW.  Hard to write big reviews but I enjoy how well you keep building on all your angles from show to show.  I am really enjoying the Cornette angle.  Simmons, Gilbert are a cose second.


  9. I enjoyed this show a lot.  I think a small territory like you plan on running is a great place for Sabu to begin his build.  While he us years away from stardom, few would see him here and he has time to learn his craft.  Throw i the Sheik and Akbar and he has plenty of protection.  Duggan vs Herc could be huge,  Nice tag division!

    Riverside Centroplex:  Baton Rouge, Louisiana

    October 8, 1986

    First 5 matches partially shown on Superstation 17

     

    First, as time continues to be an issue for me, I want to explain a couple of the angles that would have been advanced during the last Power Pro’s tv show.

    1.  NWA President, Bill Watts, hypes the next joint NWA Supercard which will be Halloween Havoc on October 31st in the Omni.  This event will include a 16-man tournament where the winner will get an NWA World Title shot.  Each of the NWA territories, Mid-South, Continental Championship Wrestling, and Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling will send 5 wrestlers to Atlanta on Halloween.  The last Rope Battle Royal to be held the week before.  Again, all territories will send competitors to this Battle Royal.  Watts’s went on to explain that the first two entrants to the Halloween Havoc would be the NWA North American Champion, Hacksaw Butch Reed and the NWA Mid-South Champion, “Soul Man” Rocky Johnson.  The last three picks will have to find their way in by winning a qualifying match.  Those matches will be announced next week and will take place this week in Baton Rouge.  Those matches are:

    Ted Dibiase vs Jake “The Snake Roberts with Sheik Adnan Al Kassie

    Dick Murdoch vs Kendo Nagasaki

    Bad News Allen vs Steve “Dr. Death” Williams

     

    2.  After a third attack by “Crippler” Rip Oiver on “Cowboy” Scott Casey, Casey demanded and was granted a match with Oliver tonight in Baton Rouge.  Oliver was excited as he couldn’t wait to collect the $25,000 bounty placed on the career of Casey.  Speaking of that bounty, Jimmy Garvin, Precious and the rest of the Freebirds guaranteed that it was not them who issued the bounty.  Watts didn’t seem to believe them and guaranteed that he would come down very heavy on whoever placed the bounty on Casey as that is not how the NWA works.

    3.  A personally paid for promo hyping the return to Mid-South Wrestling of the greatest tag team in NWA history …. As we find out that the Rock n Roll will be in Baton Rouge tonight. 

    4.  What a main event we had on Power Pro as it was Jake “The Snake Roberts & Lumberjack Jos Leduc with Sheik Adnan Al Kassie taking on the NWA World Tag Team Champions, Ted Dibiase & Dr. Death for the NWA Titles…

    Problem for the heels was that they couldn’t get on the same page.  A missed tag here, a botched double-team move there and the coup de grace, another blunder where Leduc clobbered Snake and that was all she wrote as  Williams followed up that blunder with an Oklahoma Stampede on Snake for the win.  When he recovered, Roberts was fuming and shoved Leduc in the chest…. Sheik tried to calm everything down, but Snake was having nothing to do with it.  When Leduc came back at Roberts, we have the big closing to the show….

    WHAM…. DDT by Snake on Leduc and the screen goes black.

     

    Now on to our show in Baton Rouge…

     

    Italian Stallion & “Iron” Mike Sharpe wrestle to a 10-minute draw

     

    Superstar Challenge :  If challengers win they get the Mid-South tag titles & $50,000 of Sheik Adnan Al Kassie’s money 

    The Masked Superstars defeat The Batten Twins when the Superstars hit the back-breaker/elbow drop combo on Bart. 

     

    Scott Casey with Sunshine wrestled Rip Oliver to a DDQ

     

    Terry “Bam Bam” Gordy defeated The Mighty Yankee with the Piledriver

     

    The Freebirds (Garvin & Roberts) with Precious & Michael Hayes defeat The Patriots (U.S. Steel & Todd Champion) after Hayes tripped up Champion and Roberts hit a top rope knee drop to the back of his head. 

     

    Halloween Havoc Qualifying Match for the NWA World Title Shot Tournament

    Kendo Nagasaki with Tojo Yamamota vs “Captain Redneck” Dick Murdoch started with Tojo grabbing the house microphone and in almost tearful spot, apologized for the poor relationship between hos country and the United States.  He went on and said that Japan should never have bombed Pearl Harbor…. But INSTEAD should have bombed thus hellhole you call Baton Rouge.  Talk about heat… the crowd was foaming and there was nothing else for Murdoch to do but come out and defeat Nagasaki with the Brain Buster.  As Tojo tried to clobber Captain Redneck with the bamboo stick, Murdoch grabbed the weapon and proceeded to whack Tojo with at least 10 could hits.  Murdoch was even more over now than before!

     

    Halloween Havoc Qualifying Match for the NWA World Title Shot Tournament

    Bad News Allen vs Steve “Dr. Death” Williams ended in a victory by Bad News Allen after referee Carl Fergie seemed to get hurt just before Bad LeRoy Brown came into the ring and hit Dr. Death with the brass knuckles.  As soon as LeRoy was gone, Fergie was healed and able to make the 3 count. 

     

    Mid-South Title Match

    Rocky “Soul Man” Johnson © defeats Michael Hayes by DQ as Jimmy Garvin interfered.  This brought at Scott Casey… followed by Rip Oliver… followed by Buddy Roberts…. Followed by Terry Gordy!  A brawl that will be talked about for a long time in Baton Rouge! 

     

    Halloween Havoc Qualifying Match for the NWA World Title Shot Tournament

    Ted Dibiase defeated Jake “The Snake” Roberts with Sheik Adnan Al Kassie with a sling shot suplex in the match of the night that.  First, it was obvious that Sheik and Snake were on the same page after the main event from this week’s Power Pro.  Secondly, Sheik carried his own briefcase tonight as Jos Leduc was no where to be seen.  That is until he started to come down to ringside during this bout.  Third, it is obvious that Sheik has a new “Security guard” as Hercules Ayala attacked Leduc form behind and we ram Leduc into the steel girder.  It might have been this distraction that caused Snake to get caught by Dibiase but none the less, it seems that Roberts can beat everyone in Mid-South but Dibiase.  After the bout, Dibiase glares a hole in that Million Dollar briefcase.    


  11. Nice work!  I really enjoyed the main event from Superstars this week.  The signing of the first Wrestlemania match was interesting as it might be make it or break for young Sam Houston.

    No matter who is in, Piper's Pit is a great segment.  This one was a chaotic as could be and would be memorable for a long time.  It was like when Piper hit Snuka with the coconut.

    AWEOME SATURDAY MAIN EVENT COMING.... CAN'T WAIT.
