VTR showing the finish of the Reed/Duggan match from Baltimore.
Gordon Solie: Welcome to the Peach State of Georgia. First thing is that I would like to bring out Ted Dibiase and his manager Gary Hart. Gentlemen, welcome.
Hart: It's good to be here Gordon. We heard the crying and the challenge from The Masked Superstar last week. Unfortunately, we had other business to tend to and we just want to confirm that Teddy will accept the challenge for the no holds barred, cage match at the June 16th show at the Omni.
Dibiase: That's right Gary. The Superstar for all the cheating that he does, sure cries when somebody out foxes him and turn the tables against him. I was out there as Hogan's 2nd to make sure that Angelo Poffo couldn't/wouldn't try to undermine the outcome of the match. Even though I did help Hogan out, I still want another title shot against him. I have an idea, the June 16th match will determine the #1 contender in the area and will receive the title match at the July 7th show. (crowd cheers)
Hart: Great idea Teddy. Lets see if he has the guts to accept OUR challenge.
Solie: Woah, what a way to add even more intrigue into a match that has been building for the past several months. We have action to go to, so lets go to the ring.
The Fantastics vs. Heaven's Angel's
Vines and Fulton start out and neither can get an advantage early on. Fulton is able to take over Vines with a side headlock into an armbar. Fulton works the arm and tags in Rogers, who continues to damages the arm of Vines. Vines escapes by raking the eyes of Rogers and tags in Sword. Sword's advantage is short lived as Rogers is able to get free with a good ol' kick into the mid-section. Rogers worked on the leg of Sword and after a few minutes, he tags Fulton. Fulton bounces off the ropes as Rogers whips Sword toward Fulton. Rogers quickly runs behind Sword as Fulton hits a flying body press onto Sword and both wrestlers trip over Rogers as he dropped down in the old school boy move. McGowen counts to 3 as Rogers is able to cut off Vines and the Fantastics are victorious!
WINNERS: The Fantastics
Solie: Great win as they are a double tough team.
Fulton: That's right Gordon, they are a double tough team and they gave us all we could handle. After saying that, we want another match with those Long Riders for the National Tag Team Championship.
Rogers: Gordon, I had my foot on the rope as the referee counted to 3 and everyone in the arena could see this. We continue to get ripped off by the cheating of those Long Riders and we purpose a Steel Cage Match for the titles at the June 16th show at the Omni. We also want to say that if we lose this match, we can't challenge for those titles ever again.
Solie: Are the two of you sure that you want to have that stipulation attached to that challenge?
Rogers: Yes we have thought about this and.... (crowd boos as the Long Riders approach the podium.)
Bill Irwin: So you two midgets want yet another shot at our titles? You want another beatdown to the point where you are in the hospital for the next week?
Scott Irwin: You two midgets want it, you got it! We want to have the stipulation that you mentioned added to the contract. So if you agree to that, then we will gladly put these belts on the line one more time. We will do anything to get rid of you two pests.
Fulton: You two have yourself a deal. It will be our night once and for all on the 16th.
Magnificent Muraco vs. Charlie Fulton
Muraco dominates by using his aggressive nature to punish the veteran Fulton. Muraco works on the neck of Fulton and wins the contest with the "Hawaiian Hammer" piledriver. Referee Patrick could count to 100 and Fulton wouldn't kick out.
Muraco: Gordon Solie. How is it to have me back in the area after such a long absence?
Solie: Well, your talent has been missed, but your attitude hasn't been.
Muraco: Attitude? I'm just being my normal laid back self. All I do is fight fire with fire when fighting the Tommy Riches, Stan Hansens' and Dusty Rhodes' of the world. I'm here for that World Heavyweight title and the fastest way to do so is to make an impression of the largest cable station in the world.
Terry Taylor vs. Jim Powers
Taylor and Powers put on a nice scientific match-up, but Taylor totally outclasses the young rookie. Taylor wins after several minutes with the "five" arm.
WINNER: Terry Taylor
Solie: Nice to this you again Mr. Taylor.
Taylor: Glad to be back in front of these wonderful fans. Always great to see everyone here in Georgia as we able going up and down the coast putting on the greatest matches that anyone could ever want to see.
Solie: What do you have in store while you're here?
Taylor: Well Mr. Solie, I'm happy to see my friends Tommy Rich, Ted Dibiase and Hacksaw Reed after not seeing them for a year or so. I am interested to see on how the Ted Dibiase/Masked Superstar ends up and on who's standing tall after that.
Hiro Saito (with Sivi Afi) vs. Shawn Michaels
Saito is trained in the catches catch can style of wrestling. He was a university amateur champion growing up in Japan. Saito dominated the young Micheals and is totally out classed by the young Japanese veteran. Saito works on the back and neck of Michaels and after softening him up for a few minutes, Saito goes behind Michaels and hits a German Suplex and then he bridges while holding Michaels to the canvas.
WINNER: Hiro Saito
Tommy Rich vs. Ken Timbs
Rich takes control with headlocks and front face locks. Rich whips Timbs into the ropes and lands an elbow into the chest of his opponent. Timbs is gasping for hair and Rich charges Timbs and hits Timbs with the Lou Thesz press for the 1,2,3.
WINNER: Tommy Rich
Solie: It seems like your feud with Ole Anderson & Buzz Sawyer is continuing to heat up even more.
Rich: Yes Gordon, both have been a thorn in my side lately. If I'm wrestling one, then the other gets involved and I think it's time to get myself a partner to help me keep an eye out for me.
Solie: I see that you have another tag team match with Buzz Sawyer & Ole Anderson on the 16th.
Rich: (Laughing) Oh, I have myself a BIG partner to watch my back in that match. 2 weeks ago we had a wild match at the Omni and the referee couldn't keep an eye on everything and Sawyer got the best of me. This time it will be different, A LOT different with my BIG partner at my side.
Solie: Care to say on who this man is?
Rich: Nah, let them keep on guessing on who it could be. They are going to be in for a HUGE surprise.
National Heavyweight Champion: Hacksaw Butch Reed vs. Pat Rose
The champ looks to be in incredible shape as he throws Rose around like a rag doll. The power of Reed is on display and to be the quickness that this man has, he is surely tough to beat. Reed picks up Rose for a high vertical suplex and then climbs the ropes and as Rose finally gets up, Reed dives towards Rose with a flying football tackle as Reed gets the victory.
WINNER: Hacksaw Reed
Solie: Another great win champ.
Reed: Gordon Solie, I have a lot of sucka's coming after this title. Whether it's Sawyer in Saginaw or Duggan in Huntington, I have quite the week coming up.
Solie: I wanted to know if you want to address the situation that occurred at the Omni when Iceman Parsons accidentally hit you after the post match brawl.
Reed: No need to address it here. We talked about it in the dressing room and he assured me that it was an accident and I'll take my Brother's word on that.
National Tag Champs: The Long Riders vs. Johnny Rodz & Terry Daniels
The Long Riders attack both men and throw Rodz to the outside. They work on Daniels and put the boots to him. They make short work of this team when Scott holds up Daniels and Bill comes off the ropes with a vicious boot to the face. Scott covers for the victory.
WINNERS: The Long Riders
Solie: Another week of exciting action as the..... (coming out of the back and towards the ring,Tommy Rich is being attacked by Ole Anderson & Buzz Sawyer)
Solie: We need to get some help for Tommy!
Rich is covered in blood and his white t-shirt is ripped to shreds. Anderson and Sawyer are trying to break the arm of Rich as Sawyer wraps the arm around the ringpost and Anderson has a cowboy boot. Anderson is hitting Riches' left arm with the boot several times as Hacksaw Reed charges out with a baseball bat to chase away Sawyer and Anderson.....
