    Pacific Wrestling Showcase from the Portland Sports Arena, Portland , on ESPN / TSN , February 14th Al Perez vs. Ron Starr While they still team up and watch each other's backs, the four young men of the Brigade have been working to establish their own identities of late. Al Perez is coming off challenging for the Pacific Tag Team Titles with Dan Spivey, but showed in this match that he is also very much an individual threat. He showed considerable technical expertise as he dominated Ron Starr on the mat and worked him into several submission holds from which Ron was just barely able to escape. Starr, for his part, kept pace with Perez during the match but eventually started to slip in a few cheap shots to take the advantage. Perez would not be drawn in and kept tying Starr up in knots, eventually taking him down with an armbreaker and cinching in the Japanese armbar (Wakigatame) in the middle of the ring to get the win. Whether solo or in a team, the Latin Heartthrob is certainly not to be taken lightly. Mad Dog Vachon & Larry Cameron vs. Ed Wiskowski & Jack Victory The tension between the Thundercats and the Vice Squad certainly got much more volatile when the Playboy Club took the Vice Squad into their fold, with the ignition spark being provided by the Mad Dog siding with the Thundercats. Things always seemed to be on the verge of complete breakdown during this match. Both sides laid out a lot of punishment on each other, with big power moves and jarring punches. Cameron and Vachon were laying big lefts and rights on Wiskowski in the corner when the ref ordered Cameron out of the ring. Victory took advantage of the distraction by hitting a nasty low blow on Vachon, followed by the Victory-Plex. The ref turned around to see the cover and made to count, giving the win to Wiskowski and Victory. The Vice Squad look to be eager pupils to the Polish Prince's school of dirty tricks, but you can bet the Thundercats will be coming back for revenge. Paul Diamond vs. Masanobu Fuchi Speaking of feuds , the one between Hyatt International and Gary Hart's stable kept rolling on with this match. While Diamond and Fuchi kept things just barely within the rules, there was an additional edge to ever chop and kick they laid into each other. Paul Diamond went at Fuchi full bore with drop kicks and fast paced moves, while Fuchi kept an icy calm throughout. Diamond had Fuchi lined up for a Flying Back Body press, but Fuchi dodged it, then swept in to apply the STF. Diamond struggled but could not escape and was forced to give up. When Fuchi refused to release the hold after the match, Pat Tanaka rushed out to rescue his partner, followed soon by Mr. Hito. Security swiftly interposed themselves between the two teams, but that didn't stop Missy Hyatt from verbally lacing into Gary Hart as she and Tanaka helped Diamond from the ring. Pacific Light Heavyweight Title Match : Keiichi Yamada © vs. Jimmy Del Ray Keiichi Yamada has certainly ducked no challengers since winning the Light Heavyweight title. This time out, he would defend against one of the members of the Vice Squad, Jimmy Del Ray. In spite of his unconventional look and dubious morality, Del Ray proved a tough contender for the belt, and showed impressive moves and toughness against the Japanese star. He was coming off the ropes for a clothesline when Yamada ducked and came back with a palm thrust under the chin to score the win. He may not have won the match, but Del Ray definitely proved his credentials as a contender. Pacific Tag Team Title Match : Buddy Rose & Doug Somers © vs. Chavo & Hector Guerrero The Guerreros are coming off several challenges for Terry Gordy's Pacific Heavyweight Title. While each of the brothers came close, but were unable to wrest the title from Gordy's grasp, and Hector ended up getting hurt very badly in a title match several weeks ago. The Playboy Club clearly sensed his vulnerability, and kept him in their end of the ring for most of the match, working him over while taunting his brother Chavo. It looked like Hector had managed to tag out, but the ref had failed to see it, and forced Chavo back into the corner while the Playboy Club beat on Hector some more before Somers hit a brainbuster that put him down for good. Hector's valor in not wanting to miss a match is admirable but he is going to have to start taking care of himself. Terry Gordy & Michael Hayes vs. Billy Jack Haynes & Texas Red Last week, Haynes and Texas had gotten a big win over two of the Freebirds and were angling for a shot at the Pacific Heavyweight Title. For this match, the champion himself was getting involved, determined to nip this challenge right in the bud. If Haynes and Texas were in anyway intimidated by Gordy, it certainly didn't show, and they went toe to toe with the Freebirds from the opening bell. Gordy and Hayes threw everything they had at the upstarts, to no avail, and eventually resorted to double teams and trickery, but even that didn't hold them back for long. They were in the middle of double teaming Haynes when he was able to reach out and tag in Texas Red. The Freebirds didn't catch it but the ref certainly did, and Gordy finally noticed when he turned around and was levelled with a mighty flying clothesline. Hayes tried to break it up, but found himself trapped in a Full Nelson by Billy Jack. The ref made the three count and the crowd erupted. Texas Red had just pinned the champion! Texas and Billy Jack both celebrated while the Freebirds cried foul, but there could be no denying their challenge now.

    First thing I did once I knew what my roster would look like after the various drafts was line everyone up in an initial program. Some people were doing double duty for various reasons and those programs are now starting to shift around after the Aloha Spectacular, but I wanted to make sure everyone on my roster had something going on.

    Pacific Coast Wrestling

    Pacific Wrestling Showcase from the Pacific Coliseum, Vancouver, on ESPN / TSN , February 7th Brian Knobs vs. Too Cold Scorpio The Thundercats and the Vice Squad had a vicious and chaotic match at the Aloha Spectacular , and now the members would be squaring off in singles matches. First up would be the young high flyer Too Cold Scorpio against the Pennsylvania brawler Brian Knobs. Knobs had Ed Wiskowski in his corner, while it looks like Mad Dog Vachon has cemented his new alliance with the Thundercats by showing up to watch Scorpio's back. Scorpio consistently had a step ahead of Knobs, with his superior speed and agility frustrating the East Coast tough guy. Knobs battled back through some nasty cheap shots and eye gouges. Knobs was able to clothesline Scorpio over the top rope, then turned around to brag to Ed Wiskowski. Unfortunately for him, he failed to take in that the Polish Prince was screaming at him that Scorpio had caught himself on the top rope, and by the time Knobs turned around, Scorpio came off the top rope with a flying cross body press that got the three count. Wiskowski was clearly rubbing his forehead in frustration as he and Knobs left the ring. Bam Bam Bigelow vs. Rip Morgan Bam Bam was coming off a tough loss at the Aloha Spectacular and was very determined to prove himself in this match. Both men had their partners at ringside for this match, and Bam Bam tried to use his considerable size to bowl over Morgan, but the big New Zealander was not about to be intimidated, and fought back with his own considerable power offense. Morgan tried to take him down with a powerslam, but Bigelow's size was just too much and he tipped over with Bam Bam on top. Bigelow got a 2 count, then tried for a slingshot splash. Jonathan Boyd saw his chance to strike, and swept Bam Bam's legs from underneath him with a clothesline. Bigelow fell hard to the outside and was unable to make it back into the ring in time, giving the match to Morgan. Bam Bam was clearly very upset and frustrated after the match, and Leo Burke did his best to calm down and reassure his young charge. Hopefully this young superstar can regroup and get back on track. Jimmy Del Ray vs. Norman Smiley The next match in this feud featured the former Jim Backlund, newly renamed Jimmy Del Ray , so dubbed to better fit with the slick aesthetic befitting his provisional associate status with the Playboy Club. He might not have a classically sculpted physique, but he certainly had plentiful skill on display. Smiley himself was no slouch, being a standout graduate of the Malenko Family's wrestling school, and the two were evenly matched throughout the match. It looked like either man could win the match until Smiley whipped Del Ray into the corner, then ran in only to be taken down by a savate kick. Del Ray then went up top and hit a flying legdrop to put the match away. The Vice Squad have evened it up going into the last match of the series. Interview : Frank Bonnema stands in the ring Bonnema : Ladies and gentlemen, my next guests were hit with a vicious ambush at the Aloha Spectacular … Missy Hyatt , along with the members of Hyatt International! Missy Hyatt come out with Brutus Beefcake and Badd Company, and she is quite clearly furious, nearly shaking with rage as she walks to the ring. Joining their number is Eddie Gilbert, evidently aligning himself with Hyatt International after coming to her rescue last week. Bonnema : Missy Hyatt, I am sure you have plenty to say, but I want to direct my first question to Eddie Gilbert. You have no past association with Hyatt International, what made you come out to save Missy last week. Gilbert : Bonnema, a man can only put up with so much before he has to take a stand. I have cut some corners in my time, done a few things that maybe some people didn't approve of, but nobody treats a lady the way Gary Hart tried to treat Missy. I am making it my business to make sure that he never tries it again, so I am joining up with Hyatt International and going after Hart and his goons. Missy grabs Bonnema's microphone and starts shrieking into it. Missy : GARY HART, HOW DARE YOU? Nobody lays their hands on Missy Hyatt and gets away with it. You and your bunch of creeps tried to use the green mist on me, and I will never forgive that. Well, you took your best shot, and I am still here. I've got the toughest , the strongest, the most skilled wrestlers on my side. I've got Brutus Beefcake, I've got Badd Company, and now I have "Hot Stuff" Eddie Gilbert, and they all want to tear you and your crew to pieces. You had your shot and you blew it , and now it is time to reap what you sowed. Jack Victory vs. Larry Cameron This would be the deciding match in the series, and presented an interesting matchup. Cameron has several impressive singles wins to his credit and would look to be the favorite. However, Victory's finisher, the Victory-Plex, has pulled out some sudden, err, victories in a number of tag matches, and could easily tip the match in favor of the New Jersey powerhouse. Both men went at it full force in this match, and the ring rocked with ever slam and tackle. The tension was high and both Ed Wiskowski and Mad Dog Vachon were heavily invested in the result of the match, both determined to ensure that their charges came out on top. It came to a boil when Wiskowski tried to take a swing from the outside on Cameron. Vachon swiftly retaliated by tackling the Polish Prince, which in turn led to the rest of the Thundercats and the Vice Squad coming out and getting involved. While all of this was going on, Cameron was able to block the Victory-Plex with a kneelift, then follow up with the Harlem Hammer to get the hard fought victory . Immediately after, he was jumped by Ed Wiskowski, and all 8 men went at it in the ring until they were cleared out by security. Clearly, this feud has a long way to go before it is resolved. Ricky Steamboat vs. The Barbarian Ricky Steamboat had a titanic match with his fellow Hawaiian Don Muraco in Honolulu , and while the Dragon did get the win by countout, that clearly did not bring satisfaction to him, and he is determined to get another shot at the Magnificent One. For this match, he would have to content himself by taking on one of his stable mate's, the mean and powerful Barbarian. Barbarian was clearly looking to do as much damage as possible to Steamboat before Muraco got his turn, with huge gorilla slams and big clotheslines. But the Dragon showed his resilience and fought back, bit by bit, inch by inch. When Barbarian tried to put him out with the Face Kick Of Fear, Steamboat showed the presence of mind to dodge it and catch him in a single leg rollup that got the fast one two three. Right after that, Sheikh Kaissie and Steve Strong rushed into the ring and started to put the boots to him. Soon, the members of the French Revolution charged to the ring and ran them off. It's good that Steamboat now has allies against Kaissie's men, but his focus remains locked on the Magnificent Muraco. Michael Hayes & Buddy Jack Roberts vs. Billy Jack Haynes & Texas Red The Freebirds have been waging a campaign of terror up and down the Pacific Coast, but in this match they were facing a team that were not intimidated in the slightest. Billy Jack and Texas Red were coming off a brutal war with the Crazy Gang, including an incredible match between Texas Red and Dave Schultz at the Aloha Spectacular, and were now looking to angle towards getting a shot at Terry Gordy's Pacific Heavyweight Title. Gordy was not involved in this match, but his Freebird brothers were clearly determined to nip this challenge right in the bud. The certainly took it to their opponents, but found that they had struck a hornet's nest with this popular duo. Billy Jack took down Hayes with a series of crushing power slams, and managed to get the Full Nelson on Roberts, only to have it broken up by well timed interference from Hayes. Buddy Jack was able to escape that predicament, but came up short when he went after Texas Red coming off the ropes, but was caught by a thunderous chokeslam that not only got the pinfall, but knocked him out . The Freebirds may have survived the challenge of the Guerreros, but it looks like they have gone from the frying pan straight into the fire.

    Pacific Coast Wrestling

    Pacific Coast Wrestling Aloha Spectacular from Neal S. Blaisdell Arena , Honolulu , on ESPN / TSN , January 31st Leo Burke & Bam Bam Bigelow vs. The Royal Family In their past matchups, Boyd and Morgan have tried to keep Bigelow out of the ring and focus their damage on Burke, only for Bigelow to end up overwhelming them. For this match, they changed things up and kept the young rookie in the ring for as long as possible, letting him wear himself out and slowly chipping away at him. Even when Burke was in the ring, he took quite a pounding from the Royal Family before being forced to tag out again. Slowly but surely, Bigelow was able to rally back and put the Royal Family on the defensive with some big power moves, eventually catching Boyd coming off the ropes with a crushing powerslam to potentially get the victory. Unfortunately, the ref was unable to make the count as he was distracted escorting Burke from the ring, and Morgan nailed Bam Bam with a nasty running kneedrop to the back of the head before reversing the pin. The ref turned around and saw Boyd covering Bigelow, making the three count and giving Bam Bam his first pinfall loss. A tough break for the Beast From The East, but time will see how he bounces back from this. Eddie Gilbert vs. Manny Fernandez This match pitted two of the craziest newcomers to Pacific Coast against each other. While Gilbert does have a solid background in technical wrestling, you wouldn't know it from this match. Fists were flying, every dirty trick was played, it was an out and out brawl. Manny Fernandez was able to hit the Flying Burrito and went for the pinfall, but Gilbert had the presence of mind to get his leg on the ropes to break up the count. Fernandez initially thought he had gotten the three count and started to celebrate, but when he was informed that the match was still underway, he nearly went off on the ref. Instead , he went for another Flying Burrito, only this time Gilbert ducked it and countered with the Hot Shot that did get the three count. A hard fought match, but Gilbert ultimately prevailed. Keiichi Yamada & Tracy Smothers vs. The Starr "Cousins" On paper, Yamada and Smothers would look to be the most unusual pairing in PCW, however they found common ground in both their mutual respect for each other and their mutual distaste for Ron and Chicky Starr. The Starr Cousins dug deep into their bag of tricks and used every short cut they could think of to get the advantage over the considerable technical skills of Yamada and Smothers. Yamada and Smothers both would rally back, but the Starr's could not be kept down for long. Yamada got Ron set up for the Tiger Suplex, but Chicky came in to break it up with a blackjack, only to be stopped in his tracks by a savate kick from Smothers. Yamada completed the Tiger Suplex and scored the pinfall. They might seem like an unlikely team, but Yamada and Smothers work together like a well oiled machine. Falls Count Anywhere Match : Dave Schultz vs. Texas Red Texas Red has gradually built up quite a following in the pacific coast, with his unusual look and intense style. This has brought him into the sights of the always dangerous Dave Schultz, who has stated his intention to cut the raw boned youngster down to size. The result was a knock down, drag out fight that went all over the arena and deep into the fans area. No matter what Schultz threw at him, Red would just keep coming after him. Schultz was able to bring him down when he grabbed a chair and whalloped him hard across the back a couple of times. Schultz was clearly looking to hit him in the head for the coup de grace, but Texas intercepted it with both hands and yanked the chair out of his grasp. Red then threw the chair in Schultz's face then unleashed a flurry of punches. Texas Red's usually stoic demeanor was gone, replaced by raw fury as he rained down punches on Schultz, followed by a big chokeslam on the chair that put an end to the match. Both men were bloody and battered, but Texas Red had come out on top. The Thundercats vs. The Vice Squad These two groups are newly arrived in PCW and both quite eager to prove themselves. In most of their matches so far, the Thundercats have come out on top. But the Vice Squad have brought a whole new dimension to their feud by getting provisional associate status in the Playboy Club, and were led to the ring by the "Polish Prince" Ed Wiskowski. This new twist to their fortunes was shown in an even cockier attitude , if that was even possible, and they never seemed to take the Thundercats seriously. This is never a good idea, and the diverse and well coordinated offense of the Thundercats kept the Vice Squad members flying all over the ring. The turning point came when Larry Cameron sent Brian Knobs over the top rope with a mighty clothesline, and when Knobs was trying to recover on the floor, Cameron nailed him with a massive Harlem Hammer off the ring apron that sent Knobs crashing into Ed Wiskowski. This enraged the Polish Prince, and when Cameron got back to his feet, Wiskowski ambushed him from behind and drove him head first into the ring steps. This served to ignite Jack Victory and Jim Backlund, who were all over Too Cold Scorpio and Norman Smiley. Scorpio and Smiley tried to come back, but with Knobs recovered and Wiskowski sneaking in cheap shots, they were overwhelmed by the numbers and went down after Jack hit a pair of Victory-Plexes on Scorpio. This was not enough for the Vice Squad, who dragged the unconscious Cameron into the ring to do some serious damage on him. Suddenly, someone came running out of the audience and into the ring. It was Mad Dog Vachon, who sent the Vice Squad members sprawling with big punches. The Vice Squad decided to beat a strategic retreat rather than deal with the crazed French Canadian barking in the ring. It looks like the Thundercats now have a guard dog watching their backs, and the Vice Squad had best watch out. California Title Match : Tom Zenk © vs. Buddy Jack Roberts With Zenk having recently become the inaugural California champ, the handsome Minnesota has continued to have the support of the young ladies in the audience who squealed for his every move. Not so much for Buddy Jack Roberts, who was still smarting from his loss in the tournament finals and looking to bring more gold to the Freebirds. Roberts certainly put Zenk through his paces in this back and forth match, but in the end Zenk once again prevailed with the Missile Dropkick. Another impressive victory, but who knows what new challenges await him as champion? Mr. Hito, Masanobu Fuchi & Kendo Nagasaki vs. Brutus Beefcake & Badd Company Missy Hyatt's men have been on an incredibly roll lately, with the newly minted Brutus Beefcake showing more confidence every day and Badd Company providing a tough challenge for the Golden State Tag Titles. Gary Hart has clearly taken these challenges to his men quite personally and has sworn vengeance upon Missy Hyatt. The Japanese team seemed to have an added element of viciousness to their martial arts moves and submission attempts. Missy's men were not intimidated , and countered with a combination of Beefcake's considerable power and Badd Company's speed and double teams. When Beefcake locked Kendo in the sleeper , it looked like that was it for the match, but then Gary Hart signaled to the back. A black masked figure dashed out to the ring and clobbered Beefcake in the head with a set of nunchaku. Beefcake went down and the ref called for the DQ , only to be repaid with a thrust kick to the jaw. Tanaka and Diamond in turn were knocked out by the nunchaku, leaving Missy Hyatt alone and vulnerable. She was clearly screaming as Gary Hart ordered his men to drag her into the ring and had Fuchi and Hito hold her while the newcomer pulled his mask off and revealed himself as the Great Kabuki. Kabuki and Kendo clearly looking to hit her with a double blast of the green mist and it looked like there was no way out for the Walking Riot when rescue came from an unexpected source. Eddie Gilbert ran to the ring as fast as he could and threw a massive fireball at Kendo and Kabuki that sent all of Hart's men scattering. After checking to make sure that Missy was alright, Gilbert helped Beefcake and Badd Company get back to their feet and the four men escorted a clearly shaken Missy Hyatt to the back. While Hart has brought out a very big gun in this war, time will tell what Missy will do to retaliate. Pacific Tag Team Title Match : Buddy Rose & Doug Somers © vs Dan Spivey & Al Perez While the Playboy Club have kept a very tight grip on the Pacific Tag Titles since winning them at San Diego Battleground, the young up and comers of the Brigade have been very hot on their heels. As is their tradition, Spivey and Perez had their Brigade teammates, Mike Rotunda and Tom Zenk, in their corner, cheering them on and watching their backs throughout , but the veterans Rose and Somers were clearly not intimidated. What resulted was an exciting clash between the power and enthusiasm of the Brigade and the experience and cunning of the Playboy Club. At several moments it looked like the challengers had Rose and Somers dead to rights, only for the champs to wriggle out by way of subterfuge or ingenuity. Perez was all set to bring the titles home when he set up Rose for the German suplex, but Somers cut him off with a nasty clip to the knee from behind. Rose then hit the Inside Out Backbreaker and that put an end to the challenge of the Brigade … for now, at least. Terry Taylor & Jake Roberts vs. Chris Adams & The White Angel This situation started out as a simple challenge by Adams for Taylor's TV Title, but the presence of Jake Roberts and the arrival of the White Angel has transformed it into something far move volatile. With each man in the match possessing one of the most effective finishers in wrestling (the Fivearm, the Superkick, the Moonsault, and the DDT) , it seemed like this match would break into a race to see who could get theirs first. By this point in the feud, Taylor and Roberts were no longer off guard and were going full bore after Adams and the White Angel, who responded in kind. The action never let up until Angel hit an impressive dive to the outside that landed on Roberts that took them both out of action. This just left Adams and Taylor to go at it with everything they had, and when Taylor missed a Fivearm, Adams caught him on the rebound with a Superkick that put him down for good. Enough to win the tag match, but now he needs to get that three count in a title match. Grudge Match : Don Muraco vs. Ricky Steamboat Don Muraco made his entrance to Pacific Coast Wrestling in especially dramatic style with a brutal and underhanded ambush of Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat. He followed up with insults to the popular superstar and proclaiming himself the King Of The Pacific and one true Hawaiian. This has all led to them to try to settle the score in their shared homeland. Normally, Steamboat would have had the entirety of the audience in his corner, but this crowd seemed pretty much split down the middle, with a fair number of the Hawaiians present identifying with Muraco and his freewheeling style and spacey charisma. Steamboat was running hot through much of this match, with his temper leading him to make some mistakes and to fall for some traps by Muraco early on. The Magnificent One, for his part, maintained an oily self assuredness and kept the same cocksure grin on his face no matter what Steamboat did. Eventually, Steamboat took some time out on the outside to compose himself. He returned to the ring much calmer, and managed to keep his own cool in several exchanges with Muraco. He kept chipping away an Muraco's guard and would keep dodging when Muraco tried to strike back. Now Muraco was getting frustrated, and when Muraco thought he had Steamboat lined up against the ropes for a big clothesline, Steamboat yanked down the top rope and sent Muraco crashing to the outside. Steamboat then went up to the top turnbuckle and went sailing to the floor with a flying karate chop on the Magnificent One. Steamboat was able to beat the count back into the ring and get the victory by countout, but Muraco was hot on his heels and the two continued to slug it out long after the match was over. Steamboat may have won this match, but this feud clearly has a long way to go before it is resolved. Pacific Heavyweight Title Match : Terry Gordy © vs. Chavo Guerrero After Gordy won the Pacific Heavyweight Title at San Diego Battleground, the Guerrero Brothers made an immediate challenge for his belt, and while they have scored some impressive victories over the Freebirds in tag matches, the champ has proved difficult to unseat in one on one bouts. Gordy served notice with a vicious dismantling of Chavo's brother Hector last week in Los Angeles, letting it be known that he would do whatever it took to keep a firm grip on his title. Both men's partners accompanied them to ringside, but the ref immediately announced that PCW Commissioner Dutch Savage had declared a special stipulation for this match, that both the Freebirds and the Guerreros were banned from ringside. Both sides started to complain, but the ref held firm and they were escorted from the ring. This would be exclusively one on one for all the marbles. This was a truly epic battle , and no one knew who would come out on top. Chavo would use hit and run tactics against Gordy, only for Gordy to level him out of nowhere with massive punches and lariats. Chavo used every counter imaginable to avoid the dreaded Freebird Piledriver, but Gordy proved far to big and strong for Guerrero to execute the German Suplex. Ultimately , Chavo was able to knock Gordy down in the middle of the ring for the top rope flying somersault senton. However, Gordy still had the presence of mind to roll out of the way at the last second, and Chavo went tumbling hard to the mat. Gordy then locked him up in the Asiatic Spike, and nothing Chavo could do would get him out of it, so he had no choice but to give up the match. A noble challenge, but Chavo fell short, and the question remains : can anyone take the title from the big Freebird?

    Pacific Coast Wrestling

    Pacific Wrestling Showcase from the Olympic Auditorium , Los Angeles , on ESPN / TSN , January 24th Eddie Hogan vs. Ben Browning Things were quite peculiar in this match even before it could start as Missy Hyatt and Badd Company came out before the match intros. As the announcer started to introduce Eddie Hogan, Hyatt insisted on taking the microphone from him. Hyatt : We won't be hearing that name any more. My client doesn't need to hide in his brother's shadows, he is his own man. So let me introduce to you, the newest agent of Hyatt International, now residing in San Francisco, California … Brutus Beefcake! The fans cheered but seemed a bit puzzled as the newly christened Brutus Beefcake headed to the ring. Gone was the rambunctious over-enthusiasm of before, replaced with a slow, silky confidence. He was no longer dressed in Hulk Hogan gear, but rather zebra print tights, jacket and gloves, similar to that of Badd Company except with the addition of a black bow tie and shades. While he still posed and shook hands with the fans, he no longer seemed desperate for their approval. This new confidence carried over into the ring as he quickly dominated Browning from the get go, not really breaking a sweat as he overpowered and dismantled him before finishing him off with the running jumping kneelift. Eddie , errr, Brutus had a lot of potential before, but with Missy Hyatt's guidance, we might finally be seeing what he is capable of. Inteview : Frank Bonnema stands in the ring Bonnema : Folks, my next guest has been the centre of controversy ever since his arrival in Pacific Coast Wrestling … "The Magnificent One" Don Muraco The crowd explodes in boos as "Magnificent" Muraco, accompanied by Sheikh Adnan Al-Kaissie and the Untouchables, struts to the ring. Muraco doesn't seem to be bothered by the fans' negative response and, in fact, looked like he found it quite amusing. Bonnema : Don Muraco, you made your debut by ambushing Ricky " The Dragon" Steamboat. What on earth did Ricky Steamboat ever do to you to warrant that attack? Muraco : Now look here, Bonnema! The Pacific knows the Magnificent One. I am the King Of The Pacific! I deserve the respect owed to my station. But I return here and I find everyone is talking about this so-called "Dragon" Ricky Steamboat, this pretender to my crown. Hawaiian? He doesn't even surf! Well listen up, Mister Steamboat, and listen good. A tidal wave is coming for you and I am surfing on top of it. It will touch down in the heart of my kingdom, Honolulu, and when it hits you, you will have no choice but to bow to your King! A furor erupted at ringside as Ricky Steamboat stormed out, only to be held back by pretty much the entire PCW security team. Don Muraco laughed and dared him to come in the ring, and he would have eagerly complied, but the PCW officials said no dice. Guess we will just have to wait for the Aloha Spectacular to see these two finally square off , one on one. Eddie Gilbert vs. Masanobu Fuchi While this might seem an odd pairing, these two are not strangers to each other, having had a chaotic legendary tag team brawl in Tupelo a few years ago. The hatred doesn't look like it has cooled with the passage of time, as they didn't even wait for the opening bell to start tearing into each other. The normally disciplined Fuchi went at it full bore, seemingly ignoring every command his manager Gary Hart shouted at him to get at Gilbert. "Hot Stuff" fired back with equal fury, and was ultimately able to come out on top when he snuck in an uppercut that caught Fuchi right on the button, setting him up for the Hot Shot and pinfall. Fuchi wanted to keep going and had to be held back by Hart and his partner, Mr. Hito. I don't think we have seen the end of this by a long shot. The White Angel vs. Russell Swann It turns out that the mysterious stranger who has come to Chris Adams' rescue in the past few weeks is a young Japanese wrestler going by the name of The White Angel. Rumour has it that he is in Pacific Coast Wrestling on some sort of personal quest, but nothing more is known about him. Chris Adams was at his side as he made his official in ring debut and was very supportive of his new friend. Even with the recent influx of young, quick light heavyweight wrestlers in PCW, the White Angel moved at incredible speed, dissecting Swann with martial arts moves and dropkicks before a backbreaker set Swann up for a spectacular backflip off the top rope (dubbed the Moonsault) that got the Angel the three count. These two will face Terry Taylor and Jake Roberts in a tag match at the Aloha Spectacular and it looks like Taylor and Roberts are in for a tough contest. Interview : Frank Bonnema stands in the ring Bonnema : Folks, my next guests are among the many rising stars looking to make a name for themselves in Pacific Coast Wrestling … the Vice Squad. The fans greet this announcement with boos as Jim Backlund, Brian Knobbs and Jack Victory head out to the ring, strutting in a cocky manner … although perhaps not as cocky as when they first appeared. Bonnema : Well, you guys might not have gotten the approval of the fans, but there is no denying you have drawn attention in PCW. Victory : Of course we have, Bonnema. It's been a long time since the Pacific Coast as seen such a combination of strength, skill and good looks come there way. Let's face it, the Vice Squad has it all. Bonnema : All the same, the Thundercats made their debut about the same time as you have and have made an even bigger splash, getting some wins over you and even challenging for the Pacific Tag Team Titles. Knobbs : That's a lot of crap, Bonnema, and you know it. They might have fluked their way into some wins, but we are clearly the superior team. It's pure favoritism that that idiot Dutch Savage gives the tag title matches to the Kitty Cats, when anyone with a lick of sense knows it should go to the Vice Squad! It is totally unfair! Knobbs is cut off by the arena PA playing "Smooth Operator" by Sade, heralding the arrival of Buddy Rose and the rest of the Playboy Club. The crowd erupts in boos ten times greater than those that greeted the Vice Squad, and Frank Bonnema was clearly annoyed by their interruption, but for their part, the Vice Squad seemed intrigue and even impressed. Rose : Gentlemen, gentlemen, I hear, I agree, and I have arrived to grant your greatest wish. You are right that Dutch Savage and the rest of the PCW officials are idiots. I , on the other hand, am far more perceptive than those goons will ever be, and I recognize your finer qualities. Style, gumption, ruthlessness … potential, my good men! And it is in appreciation of this potential that I offer you a prize I rarely offer : provisional associate status with the Playboy Club! Jim Backlund : Wow, we would love that, Mister Rose! Whatever you say, we'll do it for you! Buddy Rose : Well, funny you should mention that … just a week ago, we had to defend our titles against the Thundercats, and I have to tell you how much I agree with you : totally overrated. They have no sense of sportsmanship whatsoever. We've only faced them once, and we are already sick of them. So your first task is to keep the Thundercats away from us. Maul them, cripple them, just keep them out of my immaculate platinum locks while we face the real challengers. My good friend the Polish Prince here has even agreed to watch your backs and provide guidance. (Ed Wiskowski raises his eyebrow, twitches his mustache, and then put a hand on the shoulders of Backlund and Knobbs, looming over them.) Just help me with this simple task and keep the Thundercats off our backs, and you will have earned my gratitude. Backlund : And then we'll get a title shot? Rose : Ha ha ha, walk before you can run, guys! Trust me on this, do as I ask and you will be duly compensated. The Vice Squad look at each other, take a quick moment to discuss, and then shake the hands of the Playboy and his partners. It looks like they have now lined up with the Playboy Club. Pacific Coast Heavyweight Title Match : Terry Gordy © vs. Hector Guerrero Of late, the Guerrero Brothers have continued to bedevil the Fabulous Freebirds, even getting some high profile victories going into next week's title defense between Terry Gordy and Chavo Guerrero. Word had it that the Freebirds were looking to make a statement in this match, but no one knew what form that would take. With all Freebirds and Guerreros present for this match, the ref let it be known that he would tolerate no shenanigans and if he caught so much of a hint of direct interference, he would not be shy about handing out fines and suspensions. Hector wisely went for hit and run tactics against the much bigger champ, peppering him with punches and dropkicks before dodging out of range. Gordy was getting visibly frustrated and at one point, retreated from the ring and spoke to Michael Hayes, who whispered something into his ear. Whatever it was seemed to be effective, as Gordy nodded in response and was much calmer as he reentered the ring. Hector continued to chip away at the champ and gradually wore him down to the point that the challenger dared to grab him by the arm to whip him into the ropes. This proved to be the fatal mistake as it turned out Gordy had been playing possum, shown when he pulled Hector in and flattened him with a massive short lariat. Gordy followed up with brutal lefts and rights that violently rocked Hector's head before executing not one but two mighty piledrivers that put an end to his challenge. Gordy looked like he was going to try to dish out more punishment but Hector's two brothers dove into the ring and stood over to protect him. Chavo may well be starting to have some misgivings about his upcoming title match.
