    Hey man, no worries, it happens to everyone. But that's the reason I e-mailed myself with my shows as soon as I finish writing them. That way, if I forget something or if a little snafu comes up, I can recover it right away.

    Man, that was one helluva final segment to close this show. Exactly what I'd picture out of this territory. Love to see the Dream come in to save the day for the Von Erichs. It's gonna make now for a very interesting dynamic between Dusty, Lawler & Kerry!

    Wow, didn't expect to see Sherri turn on Eddie Gilbert like that. The Army of Darkness now is truly unstoppable. Great show!

    Absolutely. Sometimes, those special house shows can accomplish as much if not more than supercards. No exception with this one.

    Wow! I'm stunned by that MSG special. Great continuation of the Martel/Gino angle, Hulk Hogan arriving with a bang and I never expected the Briscos to beat the Russians for the WWF Tag Team Championship. Great job!

    Lutte Internationale July 1984

    LUTTE INTERNATIONALE TV Taped at CHLT-TV Studios, Sherbrooke, QC July 7th, 1984 (After the opening credits, we go to the broadcast booth as Guy Hauray & Édouard Carpentier are waiting for the show to begin) Guy Hauray: Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Lutte Internationale as we’re still feeling the aftermath of a controversial supercard at the Montreal Forum. Not only did the fans didn’t see the International Heavyweight Champion they wanted but most definitely not the International Tag Team Champions that they wanted. Édouard Carpentier: Indeed, Guy, it wasn’t exactly how our fans had envisioned this show to end. Instead of seeing Rick Martel and The Rougeau Brothers being champions, they had to watch Greg Valentine and the Wild Samoans become champions. And in the case of the International Tag Team Championship, it was thanks to two masked men who cost the Rougeaus the match. Guy Hauray: Whoever those masked men are, they’re most definitely public enemy #1 here in Lutte Internationale for many fans. And we’re gonna see those masked men in action in just a few moments as they’re called The Masked Cowboys. But before we do, let’s go back to the Montreal Forum to see exactly what happened. *************EXCLUSIVE FOOTAGE****************** (Footage of the final moments of the International Tag Team Championship match is shown as we pick up from the moment Raymond Rougeau accidentally hits referee Luigi Macera with the Savate Kick while aiming for Afa. We see the Rougeau Brothers throwing Sika outside and placing Afa in position for La Bombe Rougeau when two masked men with cowboy hats come through the crowd and one of them trips Jacques Rougeau. Raymond drop s Afa and starts fighting with the other while the one who tripped Jacques decks him with a pair of brass knuckles. Eventually, Raymond chases away the two masked men and completely forgets about his brother Jacques in the ring. Afa only has to make the cover as referee Luigi Macera comes back to his senses and counts 3 for the Wild Samoans’ victory. Eddy Creatchman is jubilating as he hands over the titles to his Samoans.) (Back in studio, we see The Masked Cowboys making their way to the ring to a chorus of boos as we’re getting ready for our first match.) Match #1 Buzz Tyler & Pete Doherty vs The Masked Cowboys The Masked Cowboys are dressed with full body silver suits with dark blue stars on them with half silver/half blue masks. Guy & Édouard mention that they’re simply known as Masked Cowboy #1 & Masked Cowboy #2. Unfortunately for Tyler & Doherty, they’re much less lucky than they were a week ago when they beat Bobby & Rudy Kay to advance in the International TV Championship battle royal. The Masked Cowboys make quick work out of Tyler & Doherty, finishing Tyler off with a Spike Piledriver to get the victory. Winners: The Masked Cowboys (After the match, Édouard Carpentier attempts to get some words from The Masked Cowboys but they don’t even stop at the booth and directly go backstage.) Guy: Well, Eddie, looks like we won’t have any explanations from The Masked Cowboys about their actions and whoever they are, they better be careful because the Rougeaus are coming after them! Édouard: We know that later today, both Raymond & little brother Armand will be in action so I’m hoping for the Cowboys that they’ll be out of the building by then. Guy: When we come back, Hercules Ayala is in action! ***************COMMERCIAL BREAK************ Match #2 Ted Oates vs Hercules Ayala It’s a visibly angry Hercules Ayala who stepped into the ring this week, clearly upset at losing to George “The Animal” Steele at the Montreal Forum on Thursday night. Hercules takes his frustrations on Ted Oates and once again, it’s a quick outing as Ayala finishes off Oates with the Gorilla Slam. Winner: Hercules Ayala *************COMMERCIAL BREAK************ Match #3 Kendo Nagasaki vs Armand Rougeau Nagasaki is coming off a win over Leo Burke at the Forum on Thursday and he’s looking to continue forward with his momentum. The younger Rougeau sibling proves to be a worthy opponent for the mysterious masked Oriental man. Armand attempts a top rope dropkick but misses, allowing Nagasaki to hit his Kamikaze Crash to score the pinfall victory. Winner: Kendo Nagasaki (After the match, Kendo Nagasaki grabs his kendo stick and circles around Armand. Kendo delivers some stiff shots on Armand’s back but it doesn’t take long before big brother Raymond hits the ring and unleashes on Nagasaki. Raymond grabs Nagasaki’s kendo stick and smacks it on Nagasaki’s head, eventually splitting the stick open. As Nagasaki flees the ring, Raymond checks on brother Armand and steps outside the ring. Édouard Carpentier gets up and goes to speak to Raymond.) Raymond Rougeau (grabbing the mic from Carpentier’s hands): Je pense pas que j’ai besoin de dire comment Jacques pis moi on se sent présentement. Jacques est pas icitte aujourd’hui à cause de ce que les deux peureux masqués lui ont fait mais moi, j’suis icitte pis yé pas question que je parte avant d’avoir réglé le cas des 2 cowboys! (Translation : I don’t need to say how Jacques and I are feeling right now. Jacques isn’t here today because of what those 2 cowards did to him but I am and there’s no way I’m leaving until I take care of those two cowboys!) (Raymond gets back inside the ring and indeed someone comes out, but it’s not The Masked Cowboys but Eddy Creatchman and one half of the International Tag Team Champions, Afa. Eddy Creatchman goes to Édouard Carpentier to speak on the mic.) Eddy Creatchman: Comme d’habitude, le p’tit Raymond, fils à papa, qui braille quand quelque chose fait pas son affaire. Vous avez jamais été capables de prendre la défaite comme des hommes, les Rougeau. C’était de même avec ton oncle Johnny pis ça s’est transmis de père en fils! Que ça te plaise ou non, mes Samoans, y sont les champions par équipe pis y le sont pour rester. Mais si tu tiens tant que ça à manger une autre volée drette là, ça va faire plaisir à Afa de le faire. (Translation : As usual, little Raymond, daddy’s little boy, crying & whining when something doesn’t work out his way. You’ve never been able to accept defeat like men, you Rougeaus. It was that way with your uncle Johnny and it passed on from a generation to the next. Whether you like it or not, my Samoans are the International Tag Team Champions and for a long time. But if you want to get your ass kicked right now, Afa will be more than happy to oblige.) (Eddy Creatchman orders Afa to get in the ring and it looks like we’re gonna have an impromptu match!) Match #4 Raymond Rougeau vs Afa (w/Eddy Creatchman) Raymond is on fire in this one and he jumps right on Afa from the get go. A very physical match between Raymond & Afa as Raymond puts aside his scientific knowledge to adopt a more brawling body of work, allowing him to let out his frustrations following the ending of his match at the Forum. Raymond goes for his Savate Kick and Afa pulls referee Luigi Macera in front of him but Rougeau stops before he hits him. Eddy Creatchman climbs on the ring apron to distract the referee but Raymond decks him with a right hand. Raymond turns around and Afa grabs him for his Samoan Drop but Raymond sneaks behind and hits his Savate Kick to get the pinfall victory over Afa. Winner: Raymond Rougeau ******COMMERCIAL BREAK + PROMO FOR THE QUEBEC CITY CARD AT THE COLISÉE****** Match #5 International Heavyweight Championship Greg Valentine © (w/Frenchy Martin) vs Gilles Poisson Nothing too unpredictable in this one. Standard first title defense for Frenchy’s Legion leader. Valentine dominates this one almost from start to finish, with Poisson getting a bit of offense. Valentine finishes the match by submitting Poisson to the Figure Four Leglock. Winner: Greg Valentine (After the match, Greg Valentine goes to the broadcast booth) Greg Valentine: I don’t know if any of you have seen Rick Martel since Thursday night but when you will, tell him that the champ said hi! HAHAHA! (Valentine leaves the broadcast booth as quickly as he came to it) ************COMMERCIAL BREAK*************** (Back from the break, Guy Hauray & Édouard Carpentier are hyping next week’s show) Guy Hauray: Before we wrap this program up, we’d like to invite you, wrestling fans, to stick around for the whole month of July because you’ll be in for a treat. Promoter Frank Valois has invited the top ladies in the world of professional wrestling to compete right here in 2 episodes of Lutte Internationale TV in the month of July. And it’ll start next week as Susan Star will take on Leilani Kai in singles competition! Édouard Carpentier: Two very good ladies in the ring and they’re looking to wow our viewers this July and they shouldn’t disappoint. Guy Hauray: And in our July 28th episode, you’ll see 8 of the finest women compete in an Elimination style tag team match. Names are including The Fabulous Moolah, Sherri Martel, Leilani Kai, Velvet McIntyre and Madusa Miceli! Only right here on ---Eddie, what’s going on??? (The camera pans to the side as we see Leo Burke being attacked by Creatchman Family members Samu & Sheik Ali with Eddy Creatchman directing traffic. Burke is trying to fight both Creatchman stable members but obviously Samu & Ali are proving to be too strong and as strong as Burke is himself, the numbers are too much. Burke is sent in the ring by Samu and Eddy Creatchman gives Ali some matches.) Guy: Eddie, what the hell is going on? Édouard: It doesn’t look good for Leo Burke. Somebody needs to do something! (Samu is now holding Burke while Sheik Ali now has the matches in his hand. Ali lights up a fireball...but Burke dodges and Samu gets blinded!!! Everyone in the ring is shocked as Samu is writhing in pain. Burke is able to escape the ring while Eddy Creatchman is admonishing Sheik Ali for yet another mistake on Samu! The show ends with the Wild Samoans also coming to the ring to check on Samu while Eddy Creatchman is still furious at Sheik Ali.) À LA SEMAINE PROCHAINE SI DIEU LE VEUT!!

    AWA Results for July , 1984

    Well, there always was a good working relationship between Lutte Internationale and the AWA, which explains in part the Road Warriors & Rick Martel becoming AWA champions and also appearing on Lutte and also why Nick Bockwinkel defended the AWA World Heavyweight Championship in Lutte Internationale a couple of times, including at least one match in Quebec City vs Rick Martel.

    AWA Results for July , 1984

    I think that they usually drew pretty good crowds in Winnipeg, since they were airing their shows in that area. To my knowledge, that's the only regular Canadian town the AWA was running back then.

    Lutte Internationale/International Wrestling

    LUTTE INTERNATIONALE TV Taped at CHLT-TV Studios, Sherbrooke, QC June 30th, 1984 (After the opening credits, camera goes to Guy Hauray & Édouard Carpentier, ready to start this week’s episode.) Guy Hauray: Hello, wrestling fans, and welcome to our final episode before our supercard at the Montreal Forum this Thursday night. This week, we will finally find out who will Dino Bravo face on Thursday night per Eddie Creatchman and we will also crown our inaugural International TV Champion! Édouard Carpentier: It’s gonna be a very interesting and exciting hour of wrestling and we should also hear both Rick Martel & Greg Valentine’s final comments heading into their much anticipated match on Thursday night. Guy Hauray: Thursday night cannot happen soon enough but first, we have a jam-packed hour of wrestling to go to so let’s get started! Match #1 Buzz Tyler & Pete Doherty vs The Kay Brothers 2 teams used to do the job get a big chance in this opening bout. As explained by Guy Hauray & Édouard Carpentier, the winning team will be entered in the main event’s battle royal to crown the first International TV Champion. Both teams go back and forth but in the end, Buzz Tyler & Pete Doherty gets their first win in Lutte Internationale and move on to the battle royal later tonight. Winners: Buzz Tyler & Pete Doherty ****************COMMERCIAL BREAK************** Match #2 “No Class” Bobby Bass vs Jacques Rougeau (w/Raymond Rougeau) Jacques is in singles action this week against the wily veteran Bobby Bass. Guy & Édouard discuss during the match the huge opportunity for the Rougeaus against the Wild Samoans for the International Tag Team Championship and bring the gold back to the Rougeau family. Jacques Rougeau counters a Bobby Bass back body drop and turns it into a jackknife pin attempt to get the victory. Winner: Jacques Rougeau (After the match, Jacques & Raymond are going to the broadcast booth, with Édouard Carpentier waiting to interview them) Édouard Carpentier: So, Jacques, Raymond...are you ready for your big title match on Thursday night? Jacques Rougeau: On peut t’assurer, Édouard, que Raymond pis moi, on est plus que prêts. On s’est entraîné ben fort depuis des semaines, surtout depuis qu’on a su qu’on aurait notre chance. On a des choses à prouver parce que y a une couple de personnes comme Eddy Creatchman qui pense qu’on a des opportunités qu’on mérite pas. Ben m’as te dire une affaire, Creatchman : cette chance-là, les Rougeau l’ont pas volé pis c’est en plein ça qu’on va montrer à tes Samoans pis la famille Creatchman au Forum jeudi soir! Les ceintures par équipe, elles s’en viennent autour de notre taille! (Translation : We can assure you, Édouard, that Raymond and I, we’re more than ready. We’ve been training hard for weeks now, especially since we’ve learned we’d get this title shot. We’ve got things to prove because there’s a couple of people like Eddy Creatchman who believe we’re being handed opportunities we don’t deserve. So let me tell you something, Creatchman: this chance, the Rougeaus have earned it and it’s exactly what we’ll show to your Samoans and the Creatchman Family at the Forum Thursday night! The tag team titles are coming around our waists!) Raymond Rougeau: Tsé, Édouard, y a plein de monde qui radotent sur notre dos pis qui s’imaginent que c’est notre nom de famille qui nous a donné notre place ici. Ces gens-là réalisent pas toute la pression que notre nom nous apporte. Moins que personne d’autre, on a le droit à l’erreur. Tout le monde regarde ce qu’on fait pis ils vont essayer de profiter de la moindre faiblesse pour nous planter. Creatchman fait rien de différent que ce que les autres ont dit à date. Mais la différence dans ce cas-ci, c’est que l’égo de Creatchman va en prendre tout un coup jeudi soir quand il va nous voir les bras dans les airs avec les ceintures par équipe. Ça, c’est la plus belle des réponses qu’on pourra pas donner à nos détracteurs. On vous garantit que ces ceintures-là, elles sont à nous autres! (Translation : You know, Édouard, there’s a lot of people bitching and moaning behind our back thinking that our family name gave us our spots here. Those people don’t realize all the pressure our name brings to us. Less than anyone else, we can’t afford to make any mistakes. Everyone is watching what we’re doing and they’ll try to exploit any weakness to destroy us. Creatchman doesn’t do anything different than what others said or did before. But the only difference is that this time, Creatchman’s ego will be shaken to its core Thursday night when he’ll see us with our hands raised and the tag team championships. This will be the best response we’ll ever give to our detractors. We guarantee you that those titles are ours!) (The Rougeaus return backstage, extremely confident) Édouard: By the sound of this, Guy, I say that the Rougeau Brothers are ready to face the Wild Samoans on Thursday night. And they could very well pull this off. Guy: If any team can do it, it’s Jacques & Raymond. But they’ll have to keep an eye on the Creatchman Family, especially The Brain himself, Eddy Creatchman. But when we come back, Bob Backlund is in action! *************COMMERCIAL BREAK+ MONTREAL FORUM PROMO*********** Match #3 Bob Backlund vs Jerry Oates The Princeton, Minnesota native makes his singles TV debut here as he wrestles veteran Jerry Oates. Obviously, Backlund’s wrestling acumen proves to be too much for Jerry Oates, who’s more used to work tag team matches than singles. Backlund gets an easy victory by submission via the Crossface Chicken Wing. Winner: Bob Backlund ******************************COMMERCIAL BREAK*************************** (Back from the commercial break, we see Dino Bravo in street clothes, standing next to Guy Hauray. Bravo seems to be restless, pacing the set.) Guy Hauray: It’s now time for the announcement we’ve all been waiting for, especially you, Dino. Eddy Creatchman promised you a surprise and in just a few moments, he’ll deliver that surprise to you. Dino Bravo: Si Eddy Creatchman fait quelque chose de pas pire, c’est de se faire aller la gueule sur tout pis sur rien. Creatchman, t’as tout fait pour que je me rende pas au Forum jeudi soir. Tu m’as envoyé Abdullah the Butcher dans les pattes pour me casser les côtes pis j’suis pas mal certain que c’est toi qui a amené Baron Von Raschke à Montréal, même si c’est pas un membre de ta famille. T’as essayé de me rentrer dans la tête mais j’ai survécu pis j’suis prêt. Si tu veux m’amener encore Abdullah, j’suis prêt. Bruiser Brody? J’suis prêt? Stan Hansen? J’suis prêt. N’importe qui! Creatchman, montre-toé la face qu’on en finisse! (Translation : If Eddy Creatchman does something good, it’s talking about anything and everything. Creatchman, you did everything so I couldn’t make it to the Forum on Thursday night. You sent me Abdullah the Butcher in my way to break my ribs and I’m pretty sure that you brought Baron Von Raschke to Montreal, even though he turned out not to be a member of your family. You tried to get under my skin but I survived and I’m ready. If you wanna bring Abdullah again, bring it on. Bruiser Brody? Bring it on. Stan Hansen? Bring it on. Anyone! Creatchman, show your face so we can finish this!) (Eddy Creatchman saunters onto the set, with a cigar in his mouth and his trademark cane. Creatchman has a big smile on his face.) Eddy Creatchman: Dino Bravo...ma p’tite crapule préférée. Si tu savais depuis combien de temps j’attends ce moment-là. Pour une occasion aussi grande que le premier show de Lutte Internationale au Forum de Montréal, il fallait que je te prépare quelque chose de grandiose. J’aurais pu juste comme tu dis ramener Abdullah, ou aller chercher Bruiser Brody ou Stan Hansen mais j’ai eu une ben meilleure idée. J’ai fait le tour de mes contacts pis je leur ai tous fait une offre qu’ils pouvaient pas refuser. Ç’a pas pris de temps que le téléphone a sonné pis que j’ai reçu un appel de Minneapolis. Mon vieil ami Sheik Adnan El-Kaissie m’a appelé pis y m’a dit : « Eddy, si t’as de besoin de quelqu’un pour battre Dino Bravo, j’ai en plein la personne qu’y te faut. Quelqu’un qui est plus fort que lui physiquement pis mentalement. Tu pourras pas trouver mieux que lui! » Faque c’est là que j’ai dit à mon chum Adnan : « Avec plaisir! J’accepte ton offre. » Dino Bravo, tu vas regretter pour toujours ce moment-là parce que je t’annonce que jeudi soir, au Forum de Montréal, tu vas affronter nul autre que le champion du monde de la AWA, Ken Patera! J’espère pour toi que ton testament est fait parce que y a pas personne qui va te reconnaître vendredi matin! HAHAHAHA! (Translation : Dino Bravo…my favorite scumbag. If you only knew how long I’ve been waiting for this moment. For such a grand occasion like the first Lutte Internationale event at the Montreal Forum, I had to prepare something splendorous. Like you said, I could’ve always brought back Abdullah or go get Bruiser Brody or Stan Hansen but I had a much better idea. I checked with all of my contacts around the world and I made them an offer they couldn’t refuse. It didn’t take long for the phone to ring and I got a call from Minneapolis. My old friend Sheik Adnan El-Kaissie called me and said: “Eddy, if you need somebody to beat Dino Bravo, I’ve got exactly the man to do the job. Someone who’s stronger physically and mentally than him!” So this is when I told my friend Adnan : “Of course! I accept your offer.” Dino Bravo, you’ll forever rue this day because I’m announcing to you that this Thursday night at the Montreal Forum, you’ll face none other than the AWA World Heavyweight Champion, Ken Patera! I hope you wrote down your will because no one will recognize you on Friday morning! HAHAHAHA!) (Eddy walks off the set, still cackling while Dino Bravo seems a tad stunned.) Guy Hauray: Dino Bravo, are you sure you can beat Ken Patera? Dino Bravo: J’sais pas si j’peux le battre...mais moi aussi, j’ai une surprise pour Creatchman. Mais il va attendre jusqu’au Forum pour le savoir! (Translation : I don’t know if I can beat him….but I’ve also got a surprise for Creatchman. But he’ll have to wait until the Forum to find out!) (Dino Bravo walks off the set, a bit more confident than a few moments ago.) Guy Hauray: Eddie, what a bombshell! The AWA World Heavyweight Champion Ken Patera will be Dino Bravo’s opponent! Dino didn’t see this coming! Édouard Carpentier: No one did, Guy and this is why Eddy Creatchman’s the most devious mind in professional wrestling. I just hope for Dino’s sake that his surprise will trump the one he just received! Guy Hauray: We’ll find out this Thursday at the Forum but we’ve got more action when we come back! ************UPDATE ON THE MONTREAL FORUM SUPERCARD JULY 5TH*********** NON-TITLE MATCH Dino Bravo vs AWA World Heavyweight Champion Ken Patera (w/Eddy “The Brain” Creatchman) ********************COMMERCIAL BREAK************************* Match #4 Armand Rougeau vs Leo Burke This match is also a qualifier for the International TV Championship Battle Royal in tonight’s main event. During the match, Guy & Édouard put over Armand Rougeau as a kid trying to prove himself and stepping out of his brothers’ shadows. Armand is doing his best but Leo Burke’s experience soon overcomes Armand’s quickness. Burke gets the victory with the Sleeper. Winner: Leo Burke ********COMMERCIAL BREAK + PROMO FOR MONTREAL FORUM SUPERCARD********* (Back from the commercial break, right before the main event, Guy & Édouard are standing in front of their broadcast booth.) Guy: Welcome back to Lutte Internationale. As you know, the main event for the Montreal Forum supercard is going to be one of the most intense matches in this territory. We will finally crown a new International Heavyweight Champion – and an undisputed one – as the self-proclaimed International Heavyweight Champion Greg Valentine will take on Rick Martel, who just recently won the WWF Intercontinental Championship. However, Martel’s title won’t be at stakes in this match. Earlier today, we both received video messages from the participants in this main event. (We first go to Greg Valentine, sitting on a couch with his Big Time Wrestling Heavyweight title belt lying on a table in front of him. Valentine is dressed in shirt & tie, something a tad unusual for him.) Greg Valentine: In less than a week, we will all finally put this crap to rest. There won’t be any doubt as who is the International Heavyweight Champion – even though, this title proves it. There won’t be anyone questioning my integrity. There won’t be any suit in an office telling me that my championship match, the match that everyone came and paid to see, is unrecognized by the territory or a bogus athletic commission. I will unquestionably prove why I’m the better man. Why I’m the best wrestler in the world. And more importantly, I’ll prove, Rick Martel, that as opposed to you, I don’t have to go to multiple territories to become a champion. All I need is one match in one territory. And when it’s all said and done, Martel, you’ll be looking at the real International Heavyweight Champion. And guess what, Ricky Boy....I’m gonna do everyone in Lutte Internationale a favour and I’m gonna officially announce my first title defense and it’s gonna take place right here, on this program, next week. That’s how confident I am that I’ll beat you and humiliate you, Martel. I hope you’re ready because Frenchy and I, we’ve been planning the greatest post-match celebration ever. And you can bet that our gun for hire, Dr. D himself, will make sure that you don’t pull anything funny. See you on the 5th, Rick! (We then go to footage from Rick Martel, standing outside of his house, dressed in shorts and a t-shirt.) Rick Martel: Je mentirais si je disais que je me sens pas un peu nerveux pour la carte du Forum de Montréal jeudi soir. Pas parce que je crois pas en mes habiletés. Pas parce que j’ai peur de Greg Valentine ou de la Légion de Frenchy. J’suis un peu nerveux parce que je sais ce que ce match-là représente. Pas seulement pour moi, mais pour toute la province de Québec. Depuis 1 mois, Valentine se promène avec une ceinture qui vaut pus rien et qui se proclame un champion qu’y est pas. Je me suis toujours fait un devoir d’être honnête et intègre. De reconnaître que y a des soirs où je rencontre des gars meilleurs que moi. Contrairement à Greg Valentine, j’suis capable de reconnaître un vrai champion quand j’en vois un. Présentement, Valentine, tu fais juste jouer au champion. On m’a dit entre les branches que tu te sentirais peut-être en manque d’attention pis un peu jaloux du fait que j’aie remporté des ceintures dans plusieurs territoires. Si c’est le cas, ça prouve juste ce que j’ai toujours pensé de Valentine : quelqu’un d’insécure pis qui a toujours besoin de se faire flatter dans le sens du poil. Mais si y a une chose sur laquelle j’suis d’accord avec toi, Valentine, c’est qu’après jeudi soir, y aura pus de doute sur qui va être le vrai champion International. Fini les menteries. Les gens de Montréal vont avoir enfin un vrai champion dont ils pourront être fiers. Valentine, j’espère que t’es prêt pour le combat de ta vie parce que moi, je le suis! (Translation : I would lie if I said that I wasn’t feeling a tad nervous for the Montreal Forum supercard on Thursday night. Not because I don’t believe in my skills. Not because I’m afraid of Greg Valentine or Frenchy’s Legion. I’m a tad nervous because I know what this match means. Not only for me but for the entire Province of Quebec. For the past month, Valentine is walking around with a worthless title belt and claims to be a champion that he is not. I’ve always owed it to myself to show honesty and integrity. To acknowledge that once in a while, I meet my match with guys better than me. As opposed to Greg Valentine, I can recognize a true champion when I see one. Right now, Valentine, you’re only playing champion. I’ve been whispered to my ear that you might be seeking attention and be a bit jealous of me winning titles in multiple territories. If that’s the case, that juste proves what I’ve always thought of Valentine: somebody who’s insecure and always needs to have his ego boosted. But if there’s one thing Valentine and I agree on, it’s that after Thursday night, there won’t be any doubt on who will be the real International Heavyweight Champion. Done with the lies. People of Montreal will finally have a true champion they’ll be proud of. Valentine, I hope you’re ready for the fight of your life because I am!) (Back to the broadcast booth) Guy: So, some very interesting comments from the participants in our main event on Thursday night. Eddie, do you want to venture a prediction for this one? Édouard: The only thing I’ll predict will be that this is gonna be an historic night and historic match. Both men are extremely talented and determined to walk out of the Forum as the International Heavyweight Champion. We’ll have to wait for Thursday night to find out! Guy: One thing we won’t have to wait for any longer will be our main event. We’re about to crown our first International TV Champion! Right now! Match #5 MAIN EVENT 15-Men Battle Royal for the International TV Championship Participants: Leo Burke, Billy Robinson, Chicky Starr, Gino Brito, Mad Dog Lefebvre, Sheik Ali, King Tonga, Richard Charland, Carlos Colon, Baron Von Raschke, Samu, Buzz Tyler, Pete Doherty, Gilles Poisson, Kendo Nagasaki As soon as the bell rings, everyone jumps on each other. As expected, Buzz Tyler & Pete Doherty are the first ones eliminated. Lots of teaming up, especially with Frenchy’s Legion members & Creatchman Family members being involved in the match. Ali, Samu & Tonga work together throughout the match and they’re able to eliminate Baron Von Raschke mid-way throught he match. The Creatchman Family is standing strong and everything is fine until Billy Robinson is able to eliminate King Tonga with 5 men remaining in the ring. We’re now down to 4 with Samu, Sheik Ali, Billy Robinson & Gino Brito but a frustrated Tonga climbs on the apron and guillotines Robinson, allowing Samu to eliminate Robinson. Tonga continues his attack on Robinson outside until the referees clean up the mess. And then, they were three: Samu, Sheik Ali & Gino Brito. Things are looking dire for the fiery Italian as The Creatchman Family has the strength in numbers. Eddy Creatchman is at ringside for the match and while the referees are trying to separate King Tonga & Billy Robinson, he slips a bag of powder to Sheik Ali in the ring. Samu holds Brito and Ali is about to throw the powder....but Brito dodges and Samu gets blinded! Sheik Ali is stunned and Gino Brito dropkicks him outside for the elimination! Samu cannot defend himself as Gino Brito clotheslines him over the top rope to win the match. We now have our first International TV Champion and it’s Gino Brito! Crowd goes nuts as Gino himself can’t believe what just happened. Senior referee Adrien Desbois climbs in the ring and presents Gino Brito with the International TV Championship belt. The episode ends with Gino Brito celebrating in the ring.
