Mid South Wrestling on Tour Oct. 1983

Recommended Posts

What a busy week for JYD. The card at the Superdome is one to remember! Andre and Hansen seems like it is ready to explode. Mid South is a great read as the interviews are so full of fire and that energy carries right into the matches.

Superdome show looks great so far. The 4 team tournament for number one contenders ought to be interesting. Wonder if the Samoans will interject themselves into it or not. Quite the debut for Lanza.

Mid South Wrestling Television Taping- New Orleans - Louisiana -Lakefront Arena


Mid South Wrestling is coming to you from the Civic Center in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on Fox and its affiliates Fox 8 out of New Orleans, KLRT 16 out of Little Rock, WXXV 25 out of Jackson, KOKH 25 out of Oklahoma City, and KRIV 26 out of Houston.



{Mid South opens up this week with footage of Blackjack Lanza’s injury last week. We see the big match unfold with Dino Bravo pinning Wahoo McDaniel. We cut to the arena with Bill Watts and Jim Ross standing by…}

Jim Ross: Welcome everyone to Mid South Wrestling! I am Jim Ross alongside Cowboy Bill Watts and Bill… we are about 9 days away from one of the biggest Superdome shows of all time.



Bill Watts: Lemme tell you something right now, this is one of the biggest shows I have ever seen. We have got stars coming in from all over the country and even the NWA World Heavyweight Champion Harley Race.



Jim Ross: It is always an amazing event to have Harley Race come to Mid South.



Bill Watts: Mid South Wrestling and the National Wrestling Alliance have had a long-standing relationship. Some of the top wrestlers in the world have come in for matches in Mid South and with Harley Race coming in, he is going to be up against one of the toughest competitors in the Masked Superstar!



Jim Ross: That along with the return of Ted Dibiase to Mid South in his win or go home match against the Junkyard Dog for the North American Championship.



Bill Watts: Remember that if the Junkyard Dog wins, he gets another $10,000!



Jim Ross: A lot on the line for the Junkyard Dog… Bill I am going to leave it to you to make the announcement for this next big match…



Bill Watts: Perhaps the biggest match in the history of Mid South and I mean BIG! At the Superdome, we will see Stan Hansen taking on Andre the Giant!



Jim Ross: With those three main events, you gotta know that Mid South Wrestling in the place to be. Wait just a moment… welcome in JYD, Wahoo McDaniel, and Blackjack Lanza (On crutches)!



JYD: Thanks a lot Jimbo… lemme tell you something, the Superdome can’t come soon enough… Ted Dibiase better know that the Dog is coming to take a bite out of crime and I’m hungry!



Jim Ross: Blackjack Lanza, we all want to know your status?



Lanza: Well Jim, they said I tore everything in my knee. Adonis, Borne, and Bravo… they are the ones to blame for this!



Bill Watts: Tonight you were supposed to be in a six-man tonight…



Lanza: There is still going to be a six-man… now I may not be in the match… but this is my replacement…

{OH MY! BLACKJACK MULLIGAN IS HERE! He comes over and shakes everyone’s hands…}



Wahoo: That’s right Ross… you tell Borne, Bravo, and Adonis, we are coming tonight and we are coming for some serious blood!



Mulligan: That’s right boys… tonight there is going to be some blood spilt and it won’t be ours… we are coming boys… no amount of money is going to save you!



-Watts and Ross put this through the roof and then put over the big one night tournament. They cut to the ring for the first contest…



ThunderBolt Patterson & S.D. Jones vs Mr. Fuji & Tiger Chung Lee w/ Tojo


-A great little contest that just does a piece of what these guys are dealing with. This isn’t the fastest paced contest but we do see some good action. SD and ThunderBolt have got some great teamwork going and Fuji and Chung Lee are no slouches. This one breaks loose towards the end and SD with a big dropkick on Chung Lee sending him out of the ring to the floor. Thunderbolt tosses Fuji to the ropes and catches him for a SPINEBUSTER! 1…2….3!! The fans pop as ThunderBolt and SD are moving on. Could they make a run at the tag titles at the Superdome? Will they face the Fantastics or the German Destroyers later tonight?



*COMMERCIAL*



-Mid South Wrestling returns with Ross and Watts putting over the one night tournament and the big Showdown at the Superdome! Watts and Ross then put over the Midnight Express coming in. They talk up Rose and Condry and say that it could only be a matter of time before they come in to challenge for the tag team titles. We cut to the ring for action…



Mike & Robert Rogers vs The Midnight Express


-A lot of hype around Rose and Condry tonight and for just cause. These two come in and get some nice heat from the crowd. It amps up when Muraco and Paul Jones come out. Jones speaks with Condry and Rose and shakes their hands. Mike and Robert fall apart in front of our eyes as Rose and Condry finish things off with a nice spike piledriver for the 1…2…3! This crew walks over and joins Ross and Watts who aren’t happy…



Bill Watts: What in the world is going on here?



Paul Jones: Bill Watts… you have sat on your throne for long enough. You stand here and just talk down to all those who you feel are inferior, but in front of you is a group of men who are SUPERIOR to you and every single other competitor in Mid South Wrestling. Since I have arrived in Mid South, I have put together a group of deals and one of those deals included bringing in Randy Rose and Dennis Condry. The Midnight Express is one of the premiere tag teams in all of wrestling and it infuriates me that they were not added into the tournament tonight!



Bill Watts: These guys are here for one night…



Randy Rose: Watch it Ross… it may be one night, but it is going to be a night you will never forget!



Dennis Condry: Yeah… we’ve got an issue with some of these guys… you got ThunderBolt Patterson and SD Jones… you got the Junkyard Dog and Wahoo McDaniel… and then you got the Fantastics!



Randy Rose: We don’t see anyone who can stand close to us in or out of that ring!



{The crowd then pops as Fulton and Rogers are coming down to the ring. They walk over as the group looks at them. Muraco is speaking up a big game as Rogers and Fulton turn their backs and head to the ring but then out of nowhere Rose clips Rogers’ knee! Muraco and Condry throw Fulton into the ring post! The crowd is going nuts right now as the German Destroyers walk down to the ring. We cut to commercial with pure chaos ensuing!}



*COMMERCIAL*



{We return to Mid South Wrestling and it is pure chaos outside the ring. Tommy Rogers is holding his knee while officials are pushing the Midnight’s to the back! The Germans are in the ring waiting while Fulton is holding his shoulder and trying to help his partner. Watts is going nuts on the Midnights while Ross is trying to make light of what is going on. Fulton is wondering what to do as he steps into the ring and the Destroyers attack him! The bell rings but this isn’t going anywhere! Von Hess and The Baron are wearing him down and then throw him out of the ring and he lands on his shoulder! Now Watts is over there checking on both Fulton and Rogers… the referee has no choice but to count to 10 and the Germans have won this one without a fight! They will be facing Patterson and Jones! We cut to a big segment of promos for the Showdown from the Superdome on November the 5th!



StanHansen.jpg



Stan Hansen: ANDRE THE GIANT! I knew you were stupid but I didn’t think you were stupid enough to sign on the dotted line for the Superdome! They are calling this match the battle of the GIANTS… well you crossed the wrong man Andre. I am going to beat you like the yellow dog that you are. The world is going to watch me put you down and Giant… there’s now way you will get back up!



AndreTheGiant2.jpg



Andre the Giant: Stan Hansen has a lot to say about facing me. I don’t have much to say about facing him. Hansen… you will find out why I am the Giant and cannot be beat!



DonMuraco2.jpg



Don Muraco: You see this title right here… this is the Mid South Television Championship. I beat everyone in my path to get this title and there is NO controversy in my mind. Wrestling II wants to cry and complain about going over the top rope… well pal… you simply couldn’t get it done. You couldn’t get it done in Houston and you won’t be able to get it done in the Superdome… I have been on FIRE since getting this title and you don’t have what it takes to put me out or put me down!



MrWrestlingII.jpg



Mr. Wrestling II: What happened to me in Houston on October the 15th was something I have to live with every single day. I know I had a chance to take the television championship. To go down in history as the inaugural champion, but now I have to settle for being the second champion in history. I think I can stomach that… but it will be a hard pill for you to swallow Muraco. The pill of defeat… it is coming whether you like it or not!



MaskedSuperstar_zps1afc728a.jpg



Masked Superstar: Harley Race has been ducking me for months! That NWA World Heavyweight Championship means too much to me to have a good for nothing coward like Harley Race holding it. Now Race… I will admit, in the past, your ability to defend that title was world class… but now… you have run and you have hid. There is no more of that. The Superdome is one of the biggest arenas in the world and more people are going to see me crowned NWA champion that anyone in history!



Harley+Race.jpg



Harley Race: As the NWA Champion, I have a target on my back 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year! There is no one who has held this title more than I have and there is no one with whom it has meant more too. This title is the symbol of everything that is important in this sport. You look around at people who call themselves world champions, but it is paper… this is GOLD! In the Superdome, over 20,000 people will be in the arena to see this event unfold. They will see blood, they will see guts, and they will see gold! Masked Superstar, I have run from no man. I have hid from no man. I am afraid of NO MAN! You will find out why I have held this title more than anyone and why I have defeated everyone in my path. I am the NWA Champion… plain and simple.



*COMMERCIAL*



-Mid South Wrestling returns with footage from the previous segment and the attack on the Fantastics from the Midnight Express. Bill Watt says that there may have been an injury to Tommy Rogers. They said Fulton was hurt as well. The Midnights were escorted out of the arena with Jones and Muraco. They put over the tag team tournament and say it is time for the finals. Who is going to go on and face the Samoans? Let’s find out!



NUMBER ONE CONTENDER MATCH


S.D. Jones & ThunderBolt Patterson vs The German Destroyers


-ThunderBolt and SD are coming out for their second time tonight and the crowd is solidly behind them. The Germans are fresh and take advantage early on in the contest. This one only goes for about 9-minutes, but the Germans look great. They are really getting after SD Jones and he is selling like there’s no tomorrow. When he makes the tag to ThunderBolt the arena moves. The fans are going absolutely wild as ThunderBolt comes in with some HUGE rights and lefts and the Germans are reeling! The Germans do try and double team but SD comes and nails the Baron, taking him out. Von Hess then tosses ThunderBolt to the ropes and Patterson ducks a clothesline and waits for Von Hess and SPINEBUSTER! 1…2….3!! SD AND PATTERSON ARE GOING TO THE SUPERDOME! SD and Patterson celebrate as Ross and Watts put this over. They say that the Samoans are going to be here next week!



*COMMERCIAL*



-Mid South Wrestling returns with Watts and Ross putting over all the night’s action in a big way. They discuss the tag title contest and says the Samoans will be here next week. They say that next week, we will also hear from Ted Dibiase about his match with the Junkyard Dog at the Superdome! Watts discussed possibly having more big matches signed for the Superdome. They put over the NWA Championship match and say that Masked Superstar will be in action next week. They finally put over the main event contest. They put over Mulligan coming in for Lanza and how officials are prepared for this one to ensue…



MAIN EVENT


The Junkyard Dog, Wahoo McDaniel, & Blackjack Mulligan w/ Blackjack Lanza vs Adrian Adonis, Matt Borne, & Dino Bravo


-You better know that there is some HEAT with this contest. The crowd is stirring from the outset and we see some great action for 12 or so minutes. We have limited television time remaining and Watts and Ross are putting this through the roof. We see a lot of Borne and Bravo taking on JYD and Wahoo. Adonis comes in and tries to be the one to close the door but nothing doing. We see Wahoo get double and triple teamed. Then the moment happens when he makes the huge tag to Blackjack Mulligan and the fans explode! Mulligan comes in and swings at Borne and Bravo who both duck the punches and then he turns to Adonis who goes down to his knees. Mulligan makes the sign for the claw and then he clinches his fist and he NAILS THE JUNKYARD DOG! Dog goes off the apron. Wahoo is looking on with confusion and then Lanza NAILS him in the back with his crutch and he falls into the ring! What in the hell is going on here?!? Lanza and Mullgian tie up Wahoo in the ropes and then we see Borne, Bravo, and Adonis stomping and kicking away at the JYD on the other side of the ring! Lanza grabs that crutch and he just DESTROYS it over Wahoo’s head! Officials and agents come down and then Borne and Bravo go NUTS! Borne and Bravo are punching officials! Adonis even looks shocked by this happening. Inside the ring the Blackjacks have left Wahoo a bloody mess. We see more security coming in as Mid South closes out with complete chaos…

Oh my, the Blackjacks and the Midnights creating havoc on this show. Tastics seemed like they had all the momentum in the world going into the tourney. Wahoo took a pretty vicious beating when the Blackjacks turned and I wonder if he and the JYD don't have higher priorities than Ted right now. I love the messy nature of the show.
