    Pacific Coast Wrestling

    Pacific Coast Wrestling show from the LA Sports Arena, Los Angeles, on ESPN / TSN Pacific Super Cards, September 27th The Southern Boys vs. Cabin Fever (Manny Fernandez & Grizzly Boone) The Freebirds snuck in the ring while the ref was distracted and Michael Hayes took Armstrong down with a running bulldog , making him easy prey for a running splash by Boone that gave the win to Cabin Fever Nick Busick & Bam Bam Bigelow vs. Randy Rose & Jimmy Del Ray No matter what underhanded tactics they tried, the former tag champs could not corral Busick and Bigelow for long , and Bigelow crushed Rose with a slingshot splash for the victory Leo Burke vs. Bob Orton A hard hitting match between two tough veterans that ended when Orton caught Burke in a running lariat and was just barely able to keep him down for the one two three. British Steel (Steven Regal & Robbie Brookside) vs. The Pacific Warlord (Don Muraco & Jimmy Snuka) British Steel used cat and mouse tactics to keep a step ahead of the Shiekh's men and gave a very good accounting of themselves, but in the end, the size and experience of Snuka and Muraco proved to be too much to overcome, and Muraco pinned Brookside after a belly to belly piledriver Pacific Tag Team Title Match : Billy Jack Haynes & Buddy Rose © vs. The Freebirds (Michael Hayes & Buddy Jack Roberts) The Freebirds were determined to cheat their way to the Tag Team Titles , and might just have pulled it off too. But Steve Armstrong showed up at ringside and started chasing Buddy Jack around the ring. While the ref was distracted by this, Hayes had Rose set up for a running bulldog, but Tracy Smothers came off the top rope and hit Hayes with a jawjacker. He then put Rose on top of Hayes and dove out of the ring. The ref turned around and made the count, giving the victory to the champs. Pacific Heavyweight Title Match : Ricky Steamboat © vs. Terry Gordy For this long awaited rematch, Gordy was clearly in no mood to trifle, wasting no time in going after Steamboat. The big Freebird landed some hellacious blows on Steamboat, and for a while it seemed like the Dragon's title reign might well be a short one. But Steamboat weathered out the storm and came back with fire in his eyes, hitting his trademark armdrags and working to neutralize the Asiatic Spike. This war went back and forth for a long time, with the fans on the edge of their seats for most of it, until Steamboat was able to make his way to the top rope and come off with a flying cross body press. He was able to keep Gordy covered for the vital three count and kept his hold on the title with a hard fought victory.

    Pacific Coast Wrestling

    Pacific Wrestling Showcase from the Olympic Auditorium , Los Angeles , on ESPN / TSN, September 26th Badd Company vs. The Dog Pound (Brian Knobbs & Rick Steiner) Pat Tanaka and Paul Diamond are on a bit of a high, coming off a high profile victory over the Hart Foundation. Knobbs and Steiner, meanwhile, are looking to bounce back after some tough losses at the hands of the Playboy Club. Knobbs and Steiner had a fair sized chip on their shoulders and were extremely aggressive with Badd Company. Missy Hyatt's men have been seasoned by some intense feuds so were not fazed by this, but no matter what they threw at them, the Dog Pound just kept coming. Knobbs looked like he was going to put them away when he got Tanaka over his shoulder for a running powerslam, but Takana was able to escape with a slide down his back and a roll up that just barely held his shoulders down for the three count. Badd Company came out on top in this one but you can bet that the Dog Pound will keep coming after them. Larry Cameron vs. Nord The Barbarian Cameron gave a very good accounting of himself in a recent match with the former Pacific Heavyweight Champion Terry Gordy, but still ended up coming out on the short end of that bout. Looking for redemption, he is taking on one of the biggest men in PCW, Nord The Barbarian. Nord was certainly not about to roll over for Cameron, and the two mastodons went at it with an unrelenting fury that had the ref looking like he wanted no part of the match. The ring shuddered and shook with all of the big slams and power moves that each man threw at each other, but neither would stay down for long. Cameron tried to take a moment to regroup, but Nord dove through the ropes at him with a huge flying tackle that sent them both crashing into the barricade. When they were able to get to their feet, they threw lefts and rights until the ref called for a double countout. A brutal battle that ended up in a stalemate … for now. Steven Regal vs. Chavo Guerrero The Guerrero brothers initially didn't seem to think much of the challenge presented by British Steel to their Golden State Tag Team Titles , but after a hard fought recent 2/3 falls match, the champions are taking the contenders much more seriously now. Regal lost a close contest last week to Hector Guerrero, but wasted no time in immediately throwing the gauntlet down for Chavo. Regal definitely had some fire in his eye as he not only swapped move for move with Chavo, but every time Guerrero tried to sneak in a cheap shot, Regal fired back with blistering punches. Chavo really didn't know what to do with the young British firebrand. Regal's temper wound up getting the better of him as he started laying down punches when he caught Chavo in the corner, and he responded to the ref's attempts to separate the two by shoving the official to the mat. The ref had no choice but to disqualify Regal, a result that disappointed both Regal and the fans. Regardless, the Guerreros will have to face the fact that this challenge from British Steel will not be going away any time soon. Pacific Light Heavyweight Title Match : Lanny Poffo © vs. Too Cold Scorpio The Thundercats have been on a bit of a slide since losing the Golden State Tag Titles to the Guerreros, and Flamboyance haven't made things easy on them, coming out on top in several recent matches with Scorpio and Norman Smiley. That hasn't stopped the determination of the rookie team, and Too Cold Scorpio has boldly challenged Lanny Poffo for his Light Heavyweight title, with neither Smiley nor Poffo's partner Ron Starr to be present. Poffo arrogantly accepted the challenge, figuring he could beat Scorpio just as easily in a singles match as in tag action. While Scorpio managed to land a number of impressive moves on Poffo, for the most part Leaping Lanny's confidence seemed justified, with the champ keeping just one step ahead of the champion for much of the match. When he took down Scorpio with a dropkick and then went up top for the Skydrop, that seemed to be it for the match. But Scorpio pulled up his knees at the last second and Poffo landed hard. Scorpio managed to make it up back to his feet, climbed up top and hit a flying legdrop on the prone Poffo. One … two … THREE!!!! The crowd was jubilant as Scorpio took the Light Heavyweight belt and raised it above his head. Ricky Steamboat & The Southern Boys vs. The Freebirds Steamboat took the title from Freebird Terry Gordy in what some have called the greatest match in PCW history. Ever since then, Gordy has been extremely vocal in his demand for a rematch. In this match, Gordy kept insisting that he be tagged in , and directed his aggression to Steamboat whether he was in the ring or not. Armstrong and Smothers did their best to hold him off, but Gordy was not in the mood and flattened Armstrong with a lariat and followed up with a huge piledriver that took the match for the Freebirds. Gordy's efforts paid off for him as it was announced that he would get his rematch at the LA Sports Arena card.

    Pacific Coast Wrestling

    Pacific Coast Wrestling show from the Oakland Alameda County Arena, Oakland, on Pacific Super Cards, September 20th The Thundercats (Too Cold Scorpio & Norman Smiley) vs. Flamboyance (Lanny Poffo & Ron Starr) Starr pinned Smiley after catching him coming off the ropes with an elbow to the face Ed Wiskowski & Doug Somers vs. Jimmy Del Ray & Randy Rose Wiskowski hit the face first piledriver on Rose to score the victory Badd Company vs. Chris Adams & Terry Taylor Adams blindsided Tanaka with a Superkick to the back of the head to get the win Bam Bam Bigelow vs. Manny Fernandez Bigelow won with a slingshot splash Leo Burke vs. Bob Orton Orton won after a backbreaker Nick Busick vs. Grizzly Boone Busick managed to catch Boone in a Spinebuster Slam in a move that got a gasp from the audience, but Fernandez and Orton immediately rushed in before he could go for the pin, leading to a DQ. Leo Burke and Bam Bam Bigelow swiftly followed and the two sides battled until security came out and forced them to return to the locker room. Pacific Tag Team Title Match : Buddy Rose & Billy Jack Haynes © vs. The Pacific Warlords (Don Muraco & Jimmy Snuka) A crazy match that ended in a no contest with both teams brawling in the ring. Pacific Heavyweight Title Match : Ricky Steamboat © vs. Bret Hart Hart really took it to Steamboat, focusing in particular on his legs and keeping him in a figure four leglock for a very long stretch. Steamboat was able to find his way out of it, and when Hart tried to re-apply it, Steamboat snared him in an inside cradle and just barely hold his shoulders down for the three count. Steamboat came out with his title intact but the young upstart had given him a very stiff challenge.

    Pacific Coast Wrestling

    Pacific Wrestling Showcase from the Cow Palace , San Francisco , on ESPN / TSN, September 19th California Title Match : Al Perez © vs. Mr. Hito Al Perez worked had to climb the ranks of Pacific Coast Wrestling, and that work paid off when he won the California Title from Bob Orton. But that prize came at a price, with everyone now coming after him for their own shot at the title. Mr. Hito, the assassin of Gary Hart International, clearly had serious designs on taking the belt for himself, opening up strong and lacing into Perez's legs with vicious kicks before taking him to the mat for leglocks. Perez dug deep into his well of technical skills to work his way out of the hold, but Hito was back on him and the two struggled to get the other to submit. The two battled back and forth, but neither was able to take the advantage long enough to put the other one out, and the bell rang signaling a 15 minute time limit draw. Perez certainly has his work cut out for him to survive this formidable challenge. Ed Wiskowski vs. Randy Rose Having beaten the Dog Pound at Phoenix Firestorm, Wiskowski and Doug Somers are now looking for revenge on the rest of the Hollywood Vice Squad, with Randy Rose and Jimmy Del Ray stepping right into the line of fire. Both men's partners were in their corners as they slugged it out, and it was all the ref could do to keep control both inside of the ring and outside. At one point, Rose sought to take advantage of the ref's distraction by nailing Wiskowski with a low blow kick, but the Polish Prince blocked it and then levelled him with a big lariat. He then followed up with a Face First Piledriver that put the Ravishing One down for good. A big victory, but I don't think the men of the Playboy Club have seen the last of the Hollywood Vice Squad. Grizzly Boone vs. Nick Busick Nick Busick has scored some impressive victories and really gotten the fans behind him in his short time in PCW, but he has never met a challenge as big and ornery as Grizzly Boone. Boone was an incredibly tough nut for Busick to crack, being too big for many of his power moves and tough enough to absorb a lot of Busick's punches and clotheslines, firing back with interest. Busick was still able to get the big man off his feat with a body slam, an impressive display of strength that was only able to get a 2 count. He tried to wear him down with a bearhug, but wasn't able to get his arms around the massive Grizzly, and his attempts were interrupted by an attack by Boone's Cabin Fever teammate Manny Fernandez. The ref called for the DQ while the two double teamed the man from Powerhouse Hill, but they headed for the hills when Bam Bam Bigelow ran out. If these two teams are going to war, nobody is going to want to get caught in the crossfire. Steven Regal vs. Hector Guerrero The young gentlemen of British Steel have started to challenge for the Golden State Tag Team Titles held by Chavo and Hector Guerrero, and while the Guerreros have prevailed so far, there has been a sense that the Englishmen have been steadily gaining on them. Steven Regal certainly seemed out to prove himself in this singles match with Hector Guerrero, and to his credit, he managed to keep Hector on the defensive for much of the match. The more experienced Guerrero was gradually able to get back control , luring him into the corner and catching him in the Guerrero Clutch to score the pinfall. Hector actually seemed somewhat impressed and tousled his hair in a playful manner by way of congratulations, but Regal was in no mood to be condescended to and swatted his hand away. If the Guerreros keep making British Steel madder, they may come to regret their smugness. Ricky Steamboat & Eddie Gilbert vs. The Hart Foundation While Gilbert has let it be known that he is still looking to challenge his friend Ricky Steamboat for the Heavyweight Title, the two have found a common group of enemies in Gary Hart International. For this match, Jim Neidhart came out with his shoulder heavily bandaged from injuring it the week before, so Bret Hart carried much of the match for his team. He provided many of the surprises of the match as he went after Steamboat with a vengeance, scoring a number of near falls on the champ and doing a lot of damage. The two were battling on the outside when Neidhart started bowling Gilbert over with crushing tackles, but Gilbert was ultimately able to catch him with a hot shot and score the pinfall. Gilbert and Steamboat prevailed, but the Hart Foundation had certainly made their mark, and after the match it was announced that Bret Hart would get his own shot at the championship in Oakland.

    Pacific Coast Wrestling

    Pacific Coast Wrestling show from McArthur Court, Eugene, September 14th Tom Zenk vs. Mando Guerrero These two got the crowd going with a fast paced match that Zenk won after hitting the Missile Dropkick Doug Somers vs. Chris Adams Adams won with the Superkick The Great Muta vs. Jimmy Snuka These two went at it fist and fire, and both men looked like they might take the match at different points, but Muta was able to catch Snuka coming off the ropes with a spin kick, then raced up the turnbuckles to hit the Moonsault and pull out the victory The Thundercats (Norman Smiley & Too Cold Scorpio) vs. Cabin Fever (Manny Fernandez & Grizzly Boone) The Thundercats did everything they could to keep Fernandez in the ring, but once he was able to make the tag, the big Grizzly took no prisoners and pinned Smiley after a belly to belly suplex Bam Bam Bigelow, Nick Busick & Crusher Blackwell vs. Jake Roberts, Waylon Mercy & Nord The Barbarian This was a long and crazy match, with former partners Blackwell and Nord contributing much to the insanity . Jake Roberts was fixing to put the match away when he had Busick set up for the DDT, but Busick blocked it by grabbing a hold of the ropes and then countering with a backdrop. He then tagged in Bigelow, who hit a slingshot splash and got the win. Golden State Tag Team Title Match : Chavo & Hector Guerrero © vs. British Steel (Steven Regal & Robbie Brookside) Their upset victory over Flamboyance earned the young men of British Steel a title opportunity, and they were clearly set to make the most of it. They kept the Guerreros on their toes throughout the match, but the experience of the champs proved to be the deciding factor, as Hector was able to catch Regal in the Guerrero Clutch and successfully defend their titles. California Title Match : Al Perez © vs. Bob Orton This was a rematch from Phoenix Firestorm, and Orton was looking to make Perez' title reign a short one, but the Latin Heartthrob was ultimately able to hit the Ally-Copter and get the one two three.

    Pacific Coast Wrestling

    Pacific Coast Wrestling show from the Portland Memorial Coliseum , Portland , on Pacific Super Cards, September 13th The Southern Boys vs. Michael Hayes & Buddy Roberts After their victory over the Southern Boys at Phoenix Firestorm, the Freebirds seemed particularly dismissive of the young tag team in this rematch. That would cost them, as the Southern Boys were determined to get redemption for the loss and gave the Freebirds a very tough challenge. Hayes had Smothers set up for a Bulldog Headlock, but Smothers blocked it and countered with a belly to back suplex. Smothers then tagged in Armstrong who hit a flying clothesline for the victory. The Great Kabuki vs. Terry Taylor While Gary Hart distracted the ref, Chris Adams snuck in the ring and hit Kabuki with a Superkick. Taylor followed up with the Fivearm to get the tainted win. Badd Company vs. The Hart Foundation Jim Neidhart came in with his shoulder bandaged from the injury he suffered in his match with Eddie Gilbert. Diamond and Tanaka worked over his arm every chance they got, and as a result, Bret Hart spent most of the time in the ring for his team. Hart thought he had it wrapped up when he caught Tanaka in a sunset flip, but Diamond nailed him with a clothesline and Tanaka got his shoulders to the mat for the one two three. The Harts protested, but the decision stood, and Missy Hyatt and her men were jubilant as they celebrated their big win. Larry Cameron vs. Terry Gordy Gordy was coming in with a considerable chip on his shoulder after losing the Heavyweight Title at Phoenix Firestorm, and was looking to take out his frustrations on Larry Cameron. Cameron was having none of it, and gave back as good as he got, but ultimately Gordy was able to hit a big Freebird Piledriver and pull out the victory. Pacific Tag Team Title Match : Buddy Rose & Billy Jack Haynes © vs. The Hollywood Vice Squad (Jimmy Del Ray & Randy Rose) In this rematch from Phoenix Firestorm, Buddy Rose and Billy Jack showed their title win was no fluke when the Playboy hit the Inside Out Backbreaker on Randy Rose to score the pinfall. Pacific Heavyweight Title Match : Ricky Steamboat © vs. Eddie Gilbert After winning the Heavyweight Title, Steamboat proved to be as good as his word and gave the first title defense to Eddie Gilbert. These two had a tightly contested technical bout that was really getting the fans going, but unfortunately was cut short when both the Freebirds and Gary Hart International charged in and attacked both competitors, leading to a no contest. Brutus Beefcake and Badd Company rushed in to help clear the ring, but Gilbert was clearly disappointed and frustrated at the result of his first title challenge.

    Pacific Coast Wrestling

    Pacific Wrestling Showcase from the Portland Sports Arena, Portland , on ESPN / TSN, September 12th Eddie Gilbert vs. Jim Neidhart Eddie Gilbert has let it be known that he is looking to challenge for Ricky Steamboat's heavyweight title. Gary Hart and his men look to shut down any such challenge before it starts. Whether it is because they have their own designs on the title or just mean spiritedness is anyone's guess, but the first obstacle they set in his path would be Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart. The Anvil hit hard and often, and Gilbert found the tank-like former pro football player incredibly tough to corral. Neidhart hit some thunderous tackles and looked like he might just take out Hot Stuff, but Gilbert used his considerable cunning and lured Neidhart into trying to tackle him when he was prone in the corner. Gilbert dove out of the way at the last second and Neidhart went right between the turnbuckles and injured his shoulder by hitting hit hard on the post. Gilbert swiftly rolled him up and got the one two three. Gilbert won't let anything stand in his way of getting a shot at the champ. Chris Adams & Terry Taylor vs. The Thundercats (Too Cold Scorpio & Norman Smiley) Both of these teams were coming off tough losses at Phoenix Firestorm and were looking to prove themselves. Adams and Taylor came out very aggressively, but the Thundercats were not about to be bowled over and fought back just as hard. The result was a very intense and fast paced match with the speed and aerial ability of the Thundercats balanced by the guile and rutlhlessness of Gary Hart's men. It would be Hart's involvement that would tip the balance in his men's favour, as he was able to distract the ref long enough for Taylor to ambush Scorpio with a sneak attack, which allowed Adams to hit the Superkick and score the pinfall. A tough loss for the Thundercats, but you know they will not be down for long. Interview : Frank Bonnema stands in the ring Bonnema : Ladies and gentlemen, my next guests had a lot of success at Phoenix Firestorm, including winning the Pacific Tag Team Titles … the Playboy Club. The crowd cheers as Buddy Rose, Ed Wiskowski, Doug Somers and Billy Jack Haynes. They all seem a little surprised but grateful at the fan reaction, but Billy Jack, title belt around his waist, looks distinctly uncomfortable. Bonnema : Well, Buddy Rose, it is a bit surprising to see the fans give you this sort of greeting, but probably not so surprising after you were triumphant at Phoenix Firestorm. Rose : Well, no surprise that the fans love a winner, and they are smart enough to see that the Playboy Club are the biggest winners in PCW. The Pretty Boy and the Polish Prince taught the Dog Pound a lesson they won't forget, and now with big Billy Jack in the Playboy Club, the Tag Team Titles are ours! Billy Jack : Hold the phone, Rose! (Buddy Rose looks shocked at the interruption) I didn't sign up to join no Playboy Club. I gave my word to help you take on the Hollywood Vice Squad, and that's what I did . You've proved yourself to me, and I will defend these belts with everything I've got. If you want to associate yourself with these guys, that's your business, but leave me out of it. Rose : Uhhhh, no problem, my friend! But regardless, you and I are still the champs, and I feel sorry for any team that tries to take the titles from us! Bam Bam Bigelow & Nick Busick vs. The Dog Pound (Brian Knobbs & Rick Steiner) One of the big surprises coming out of Phoenix Firestorm was the return of Bam Bam Bigelow. The Beast From The East was put on the shelf some time ago from an ambush by the Pacific Warlords, but has come back with a vengeance, and he and the man from Powerhouse Hill, Nick Busick, are shaping up to be a true force to be reckoned with. The Dog Pound didn't know what hit them as Bigelow and Busick, guided by Leo Burke, bounced them all over the ring like beach balls. Busick completely took the wind out of Knobbs' sails with a crushing Spinebuster Slam, but he immediately tagged out to Bigelow, who went up top for a devastating Nuclear Splash for the pinfall. It's hard to imagine any group in PCW that can stand in the way of this new combination. Pacific Television Title Match : Texas Red © vs. John Tatum Texas Red has seen off a lot of challengers in his time as TV champ, but he has never faced anyone quite like "Hollywood" John Tatum. Tatum seemed to do everything in his power to avoid locking up with the champion, arguing with the ref, the fans, and pretty much anyone who crossed his line of sight. There was method to his madness, though, as his relentless stalling goaded Texas into making the first move, and Red was sufficiently irritated that Tatum was able to dodge under his blows. Texas Red was still dealing with some wear and tear he had faced in his bruising battle at Phoenix Firestorm with Grizzly Boone, and Tatum was able to take advantage of that, playing Cat and Mouse with the champ and scoring some hits before moving back out of range. Tatum was able to chip away at Texas Red but got in too close and Red grabbed him by the throat. It looked like it was curtains for Tatum, but before Texas Red could hit the chokeslam, Jimmy Del Ray came out of nowhere and into the ring and clipped the champion from behind in the leg, followed by the rest of the Hollywood Vice Squad. The ref called for the DQ but Tatum's crew did a fair amount of damage to Texas Red before Billy Jack Haynes and the Playboy Club came in to run them off. Texas Red is still the champ, but it looks like he won't be satisfied until he deals with Tatum for good.

    Pacific Coast Wrestling

    Pacific Coast Wrestling presents Phoenix Firestorm from Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum, Phoenix, August 29th Ed Wiskowski & Doug Somers vs. The Dog Pound (Brian Knobbs & Rick Steiner) After being taken out by an ambush by the Dog Pound several weeks ago, Wiskowski and Somers seemed to be a bit surprised to see they were greeted with cheers from the fans. That said, it wasn't too surprising, given the Dog Pound's joining the hated Hollywood Vice Squad. There was a high degree of mutual hatred in both teams going into this match, and they both proceeded to go at it fist and fire. Although he was the least experienced wrestler going into the match, Rick Steiner did a lot of damage for his team, jarring Somers with some huge clotheslines and power slams. Somers took a lot of damage but was eventually able to fall bag and make the big tag, and the Polish Prince started to administer some serious payback on the Dog Pound. Knobbs and Steiner did their best to try to double team them, but he was having none of it, and tossed Steiner out of the ring before putting the boots to Knobbs. One face first piledriver and the Playboy Club had gotten their revenge on the Dog Pound. Badd Company vs. The Hart Foundation The hatred between these two teams was palpable going in and they certainly wasted no time going at each other before the bell even had a chance to ring. The Hart Foundation had the edge in size and experience, but Badd Company weren't intimidated and their high velocity offense had the Harts backpedaling for much of the match. The shouting match between Missy Hyatt and Gary Hart sometimes threatened to upstage the action in the ring, but when the ref tried to intervene, Hart took advantage of the distraction and handed off a set of brass knucks to Bret Hart. When Pat Tanaka was coming off the ropes, Bret Hart clobbered him with the knucks, and then Neidhart took him down with a massive tackle that got the three count. Despite the loss, Badd Company continued the fight after the bell, and the two teams kept on battling all the way to the locker room. British Steel (Steven Regal & Robbie Brookside) vs. Flamboyance (Ron Starr & Lanny Poffo) In their short time in Pacific Coast Wrestling, the two young gentlemen of British Steel have become big favorites of the fans. Flamboyance, on the other hands, seemed notably less enthused by them, and were clearly out to put the young upstarts in their place. British Steel's speed and scientific skills served them well in this match, but Flamboyance were just as skilled and had the edge in experience and ruthlessness. Poffo was looking to put Brookside away when he hit a big atomic drop, but failed to notice that Brookside had made a blind tag beforehand. Poffo then went up top for the Skydrop, but the now legal Regal raced in and knocked him off the top turnbuckle with a clothesline. He followed up with a lightning quick Oklahoma Roll. The ref swiftly made the three count and British Steel had gotten their biggest win yet in a huge upset. Golden State Tag Team Title Match : The Thundercats (Too Cold Scorpio & Norman Smiley) © vs. Chavo & Hector Guerrero Ever since their change of attitude, the Guerrero Brothers have made no bones about their intentions to take back the Golden State Tag Team Titles. The Thundercats have had a long run, but the Guerreros have kept nipping at their heels, and it has been all Smiley and Scorpio could do keep their hold on the belts. The brothers were clearly in no mood to trifle and really took it to the Thundercats. Smiley and Scorpio did their best to try to keep them contained, but Chavo and Hector took every shortcut they could to get the advantage back. Smiley hoped to try to put the challengers out when he was able to trap Chavo in the Norman Conquest (Cross Face Chicken Wing) but the ref was escorting Scorpio out of the ring, and Hector took advantage of the distraction by breaking up the hold with a kneelift, followed by a swinging neckbreaker. When he turned around , the ref saw Hector covering Smiley and made the three count. The Golden State Tag Titles were now back in the hands of the Guerreros, to the considerable disappointment of the fans. Brutus Beefcake, The Great Kabuki & The White Angel vs. Mr. Hito, Chris Adams & Terry Taylor There was a bit of drama before the match as the White Angel came out dressed, instead of his usual white gear, in black and red garb and mask, just like his father, the Great Kabuki. Missy Hyatt got on the microphone and announced that, now that he and his father had reconciled, his quest as the White Angel was now complete and he would now be known as the Great Muta. They then took off their masks and showed that father and son were wearing matching black facepaint. After that, the match exploded as the two warring sides went right after each other. Although there were lots of big moves that got the fans on their feet, there was a sharp edge of anger to each one stemming from the deep hatred between both sides. Adams, Kabuki and Muta were all busted open and various points in the match, and that just made them see red and keep fighting with greater ferocity. Adams thought he had the match sewed up when he lined up Muta for the Superkick, but Beefcake caught him from behind with the Final Cut (running knee strike). Muta zipped up the top rope and hit the Moonsault that got the win. The fans were jubilant and Missy and her men celebrated in the ring. Mike Rotunda & Tom Zenk vs. Jake Roberts & Waylon Mercy Speaking of hatred, Rotunda and Zenk have never forgiven the man who now goes by Waylon Mercy for betraying the Brigade. They roared into the ring and immediately threw down with Mercy and his mentor, Jake Roberts. The result was pure chaos and the ref was never able to get any semblance of control of the action. Once Nord the Barbarian got involved, the ref had no choice but to throw the match out and declare a no contest but the combatants paid that no mind, continuing to fight and totaling the announcer's table. It took Commissioner Dutch Savage coming out and threatening suspensions all round to get both sides to disperse. California Title Match : Bob Orton © vs. Al Perez Cowboy Bob Orton has taken on all comers in his time as California Champion but as yet nobody has been able to end his title reign. Enter the Latin Heartthrob, Al Perez, who has been racking up win after win to earn himself a shot at the coveted belt. Both men were evenly matched, with Perez's youth and vigour balanced by Orton's cunning and experience. These two waged a long and intense campaign that had the fans on the edge of their seats, with Perez looking at several points that he had Orton down for the count, only for the Ace to come roaring back. The Cowboy finally got set to put and end to Perez' challenge when he got him on the top turnbuckle and set for the Superplex. But Perez would not go down easy, and kept slugging it out with Orton. Orton finally got him locked up and hoisted him over for the Superplex, but Perez managed to pivot in mid air and land on top of Orton. He still had enough left in the tank to hook the leg and just barely held him down for the three count, but the ref stood up and declared him the new California champ. The handsome superstar had managed to pull it off and the fans applauded his impressive feat. Pacific Television Title Match : Texas Red © vs. Grizzly Boone Texas Red is another of the fighting champions of PCW who has faced down a variety of challengers, but he hadn't faced anyone as intimidating as Grizzly Boone. The huge mountain man was the heavy hitter of the Crazy Gang and had established his name by not just beating his opponents but crushing them. Red clearly found Boone his toughest challenge yet, as he was unable to get him up for the chokeslam or any of his other trademark slams. Boone did a lot of damage to the champion, and it looked like Red's days with the title were done. But the tough Texan dug in and came back hard against Boone, laying in some huge punches and boots. He hit a big Western lariat that staggered Boone, but the Grizzly did not go down. A second one put him on rubber leg street, but he was still standing. A third massive lariat finally put him down, and Red was able to finally score the pinfall. It took an incredible effort, but Red had survived his stiffest challenge yet. The Southern Boys vs. Michael Hayes & Buddy Jack Roberts The new teaming of Tracy Smothers and Steve Armstrong has gotten under the skin of the Freebirds, and the men from Badstreet were looking to take advantage of this opportunity to put them in their place. They did their best to bully the Wild Eyed Southern Boys early in the match, but Smothers and Armstrong were having none of it and came back fast and hard with rapid fire moves and double teams. Even the sneak attacks and cheap shots from Hayes and Buddy Jack couldn't keep them down for long, and it seemed like they might just pull off the upset of all upsets when Armstrong went up top for the missile dropkick. Hayes, however, managed to sneak up from behind and knock him off the top turnbuckle. Buddy Jack then rolled him up with a fistful of trunks and got to the pinfall, much to the disappointment of the fans and the Southern Boys. Pacific Tag Team Title Match : The Hollywood Vice Squad (Jimmy Del Ray & Randy Rose) © vs. Buddy Rose & Billy Jack Haynes The Hollywood Vice Squad thought they had pulled off the ultimate humiliation of the Playboy, putting his partners on the shelf and tricking him into thinking the Dog Pound were on his side, only for them to betray him in front of the entire PCW TV audience. They certainly didn't count on him bringing in Billy Jack Haynes to be his partner, looking for both revenge and the Pacific Tag Titles. Their alliance was an uneasy one , and the Hollywood Vice Squad did their best to play them off against each other and trip them up, but it seems that Rose and Haynes figured that their uncertainty about each other was overruled by their hatred of Del Ray and Rose, and always came through for each other in the clutch. Haynes had taken the most damage in the match, but came back hard and started flattening Ravishing Randy with clotheslines and big power slams. The crowd gave a roar of approval as Billy Jack locked Randy in the Full Nelson, but Del Ray came in with a chair , looking to break it up. Buddy Rose dove in and knocked him down, intercepting him. He then grabbed the chair and started looking towards Billy Jack. Was he looking to pull a double cross of his own? No, he had spied John Tatum and the Dog Pound coming down the aisle and charged out of the ring, warding them off with the chair. With no rescue coming, Ravishing Randy had no choice but to give up the match, making Buddy Rose and Billy Jack one of the most oddly matched tag team champions in wrestling. Regardless, the two new champions high fived and congratulated each other as the audience cheered. Nick Busick & Leo Burke vs. The Pacific Warlords (Don Muraco & Jimmy Snuka) The newly dubbed Pacific Warlords were not going to take any chances with Nick Busick, who has been on a roll of incredible wins, so they ambushed him and his mentor, Leo Burke, the moment they got to the ring, tossing the man from Powerhouse Hill from the ring and working over Burke. While Shiekh Adnan Al-Kaissie brandished a sword and screamed abuse from ringside, Muraco and Snuka double teamed Busick and kept him in their end of the ring. Busick kept trying to get involved in the action but the Warlords deftly made sure that a legal tag could not be made. Burke put in a courageous effort to battle back, but he couldn't overcome the odds and Snuka ultimately pinned him after the Superfly Splash. But this was not enough for the Sheikh's men, and while Kaissie and Muraco dogpiled on Busick and kept him from saving Burke while Snuka went up top, looking to put the Man Of 1000 Holds out of wrestling for good with a second Superfly Splash. But someone charged into the ring and threw Snuka from the top turnbuckle before laying into him with headbutts. It was Bam Bam Bigelow! The Beast From The East hadn't been seen for several weeks after a brutal attack by the Pacific Warlords, but now he was back and out for revenge. He and Busick ran the Warlords out of the ring and were walking tall as the crowd roared their approval. Pacific Heavyweight Title Match : Terry Gordy © vs. Ricky Steamboat This is it. The Big One. The one for all of the marbles. Terry Gordy has seen off a lot of challengers in his long reign as champion but this would be his biggest match in PCW yet. Ricky Steamboat has fought hard to make his way to his title match but now he was at the final stage. He was all smiles as he shook hands with the fans on his way to the ring as "Eye In The Sky" by Alan Parsons Project played over the arena PA, but you could tell he was laser focused on the task at hand. Gordy, on the other hand, came out to "Freebird" by Lynyrd Skynyrd and was staring daggers at Steamboat, trying to intimidate him. The Dragon was not about to be bullied, though, and tore into the champ with kicks and karate chops. Gordy was sent reeling by this assault, trying to fight back but Steamboat just kept after him. Steamboat had a long stretch where he wore down Gordy, but got overconfident when he came off the ropes with a cross body press, and Gordy caught him and drove him back first into the corner. It was time for the champion to pay some dividends on Steamboat, and rocked him with huge punches. He then started working to get him in the Asiatic Spike, and seemed close to locking it in at a number of points, but the Dragon desperately battled his way out, getting to the ropes to break the hold. Gordy tried to get it again, but Steamboat hit one of his trademark armdrags and put him in an armlock. From there, Steamboat relentlessly went after Gordy's arms, using weardown holds and kneedrops to try to neutralize the Asiatic Spike. He then whipped Gordy into the ropes, but Gordy was able to come back and attempt a lariat with his good arm. Steamboat blocked it, but Gordy flattened him with a short lariat with his hurt arm. He went for the cover, but was in far too much pain to keep him down. The then grabbed Steamboat by his hair and dragged him up, setting him up to finish him off with the Freebird piledriver. Steamboat dug in and kept blocking it, then, in an incredible display of guts and power, countered with a back drop. He then managed to get Gordy in a double chicken win and, using his absolute last reserves of strength and energy, hit a Tiger Suplex and put his shoulders to the mat. One … two … THREE!!!! Ricky Steamboat had won the Pacific Heavyweight Title! The audience exploded in cheers and Steamboat looked exhausted but proud. Many of the other wrestlers came out congratulate him, and the first ones out were Eddie Gilbert and Missy Hyatt, who shook his hand and embraced him. Gilbert and Brutus Beefcake hoisted Steamboat up on their shoulders, and the last shot was of the new champion, belt over his shoulder, triumphant in the middle of the ring.

    Pacific Coast Wrestling

    Pacific Coast Wrestling show from the Selland Arena, Fresno , August 16th British Steel (Steven Regal & Robbie Brookside) vs. The Dog Pound (Brian Knobbs & Rick Steiner) A match between two up and coming teams that contrasted the wild and wooly Dog Pound with the technical expertise of British Steel. This could have gone either way but Steiner was able to put down Brookside with a mighty belly to belly suplex Steve Armstrong vs. Buddy Jack Roberts The Freebird was extremely cocky throughout and was very dismissive of Armstrong, but this over confidence cost him as he tossed the Southern Boy over the top rope and failed to see that he caught himself to land on the apron and went up to the top rope. Roberts turned around and was hit with a flying clothesline that gave the win to young Armstrong. Mike Rotunda vs. Waylon Mercy Rotunda held nothing back against his former partner, and the two went at it fist and fire, to the extent that the ref throughout the match as they kept brawling while ignoring his attempts to keep control Grizzly Boone vs. Norman Smiley Smiley did his best to try to take down Boone, but the massive mountain man proved to be too much to handle and he crushed Smiley with an Avalanche in the corner and get the one two three Al Perez vs. Mando Guerrero These two Latin superstars put on a tightly contested Scientific bout where Perez was able to execute the Ally-Copter for the win Pacific Light Heavyweight Title Match : Lanny Poffo © vs. Pat Tanaka The fans were on the edge of their seats as Tanaka came out guns ablazing and looked like he might take the title on a number of occasions, only for Poffo to dodge the wheel kick and comeback with a precision dropkick. He then followed up with the Skydrop and successfully defended his title. Pacific Television Title Match : Texas Red © vs. Manny Fernandez The Ragin' Bull was clearly seeing red against Texas Red, unleashing his full fury in an intense TV title match.
