Spartanburg, SC

Memorial Auditorium

 

All wrestling matches are one-fall with a fifteen-minute time limit, unless otherwise noted.

 

1. Toru Tanaka & Hiro Saito vs Jules & Jay Strongbow

  • The Strongbow's team up here to take on the unfamiliar team of Saito & Tanaka. The Japanese team takes a pounding quick, but is able to turn the tide after a cheap double-team move behind the referee's back. The work over Jules in their corner, working him with strikes and some decent suplex moves, but they get cocky and one mistake leads to Jules tagging to “Chief” Jay Strongbow and he enters with many knife-edge chops, one big tomahawk chop, and a big sleeper to end the contest.
  • Time: 9:22
  • Winners: Jules and Jay Strongbow

 

2. Lanny Poffo vs Italian Stallion

  • Lanny Poffo debuts against another debut in the Italian Stallion. Lanny gets on the house mic and recites a poem, then tosses some frizz-bee’s with that poem on it to the crowd. The Stallion starts off strong, punishing Poffo with some stiff strikes and a couple of thumping body slams. He locks in a chin lock, wearing down the younger Poffo. Lanny begins to work his way back to his feet, breaking the hold, executing a leaping dropkick to stun the Stallion. A couple of elbows to the head and a backbreaker sets up a second-rope push off backflip into a body splash for the win.
  • Time: 9:46
  • Winner: Lanny Poffo

 

3. Pat Patterson & Ray Stevens vs The Moondogs

  • Both teams debuting against each other. The popular Moondogs against the sometimes hated, sometimes loved team of Patterson and Stevens. This is a back and forth affair. Both teams trade advantages a couple of times during the contest. Just as both teams break out into a pier-six brawl, the bell rings and both teams have wrestled the time limit.
  • Time: 15:00

Winners: Time-limit Draw

 

4. Kamala w/Skandor Akbar vs Sivi Afi

  • Kamala enters the ring, takes off his face mask and drops the weapon and attacks Sivi. Kamala lays him down with a bunch of punches and shops. He body slams Afi to the ground, gets some momentum off the ropes and leaps into the air, crushing down onto Afi, getting the three count.
  • Time: 2:23
  • Winner: Kamala

 

INTERMISSION

 

5. The Grapplers © vs The Vachon's (U.S. Tag Team Title Match – One Fall – 30 Minutes)

  • There is an announcement made to the crowd that at the last show MACW sanctioned, the main event was announced as a “loser leaves town, loser leaves MACW”. However, the contracts were NOT signed with that stipulation on it. The Freebirds jumped the gun in announcing that stipulation, therefore it cannot hold up. The Vachon's were re-instated to the promotion, and that is why they are back, challenging for the US Tag Titles.
  • The match was a fun battle of styles. The Vachon's use their brawling skills, and the Grappler's tried to wrestle the Vachon's down to the mat. After going back and forth, the champions gained the advantage and never looked back. The masked wrestlers finished off the Vachon's with a vicious double-team back suplex to Mad Dog Vachon for the three count.
  • Time: 16:55
  • Winners: Still the US Tag Team Champions, The Grappler's

 

6. Pedro Morales vs Rip Rogers

  • Pedro starts off with some basic wrestling holds, working over Rogers. Rogers uses the tights to send Pedro to the floor to gain the advantage. Rogers takes over, beating down on Pedro, the crowd starts to chant. Rogers stomps on Morales as he begins to make it back to his feet. Morales back body drops Rogers onto the mat. He swings those lefts and rights, staggering Rogers into the corner. As Pedro follows into the corner, Rip grabs his tights, pulling him into the corner face first. As Pedro crumbles to the, Rogers covers him, putting his feet on the ropes for added leverage and gaining the win.
  • Time: 7:11
  • Winner: Rip Rogers

 

7. The Freebirds (Hayes, Gordy & Roberts) vs Barry & Kendall Windham & Sam Houston

  • This match has a special 20-minute time limit.
  • All out chaos, as the Freebirds are known to do. All six men brawl in and out of the ring. The chaos doesn't let up, and after about 6 minutes, the referee calls for the double-disqualification. The battle continues well after the bell, with a number of officials running out to stop the brawl. The Freebirds finally decide they've had enough for the night and are escorted from the ring. All six men were bleeding at the end of the fight. Barry gets on the house mic and challenges them to a street fight, anything goes, the next time they come back to Spartansburg!
  • Time: 6:59
  • Winners: Double-Disqualification

 

8. Terry Taylor © vs Mr. Fuji (U.S. Title Match – One Fall – 45-Minute Time Limit)

  • Mr. Fuji is announced as a replacement for the missing Adrian Street. Terry Taylor comes out and agrees to let Fuji challenge for the title. Fuji cheap shots Taylor to begin the contest. We go a few minutes with Fuji's cheap dirty tricks. Questionable shots to the throat. Hidden chokes, chops to the eyes. Fuji's normal, sneaky style. The crowd was quiet at first, but as he cheats more and more, they get on him about it. They rally behind the champion heavily at this point, and Fuji tries for a head-butt off the second rope, but Taylor moves away and Fuji crashes hard to the mat. Taylor gets to his feet and starts to battle back. The referee gets caught in the middle of a dropkick sequence, getting knocked to the ground. Fuji reaches into his tights and pulls out the mysterious salt. He walks towards Taylor, but Terry knows what’s going on and kicks Fuji's hand, sending the salt into his own eyes. Terry leaps with a flying forearm to the face, as Fuji gets knocked back into the ropes, he bounces off and Taylor scores with an inside cradle, as the referee recovers just enough to count the three count, Taylor retains the gold.
  • Time: 11:45
  • Winner: Still NWA United States Champion, Terry Taylor

Great work getting the Vachons back! Love the way you worked in unsigned contracts.

 

Looking forward to seeing what you do with the freebirds. I think they are a promotion changer! I feel the same about Skandar Akbar!

 

Glad to see the Strongbows back together!

 

I am also interested in who comes to feud with Terry Taylor. U.S. Title is a pretty big deal.

 

Good Luck. Any way I could be of help, please ask.

I like the first output for the new MACW. Good continuation and write ups. I think you've got a good formula and this is a lot of detail for just a house show. You may be able to streamline some of it and add that effort into television but we'll see how it all plays out.

The Fabulous Freebirds (Gordy, Hayes, Roberts) vs Barry & Kendall Windham & Pedro Morales

What a wild match! All six fight it out right at the beginning. It calms down to an actual tag team match, for a while. No one can keep control very long, very much a back and forth match. So much good action. The Freebirds try to keep Kendall in the ring and work him over, but he's able to escape before he gets real injured. This is the story of match throughout the contest. The 'Birds finally get him in their corner and wear him down for a few minutes. Kendall finally gets away again and tags in Barry. He comes in with a house of fire. The action breaks down again. Gordy gets his hands on Kendall and gives him a vicious powerslam. He clotheslines Pedro to the floor as Hayes climbs on top for the three count. The 'Birds slip out of the ring and celebrate to the back. The Windham's and Morales argue with the referee that Barry was the legal man, but he won't restart the match.

NWA World Heavyweight Championship Match, One Fall, 60-Minute Time Limit

Flair capitalizes fast and lands a leaping knee smash to Ricky's head. He cradles up Steamboat and gets the shocking 3-count to retain the title.

Time: 53:30

Decision: Still NWA World Heavyweight Champion, Ric Flair

Very Solid Card! Love the Main Event! STARRCADE WORTHY MATCH!

 

I love the Freebird/Windham feud but do think Barry needs more then a rookie, Kendall and a rotating 3rd main to contend wtih BAM BAM, BUDDY JACK and P.S. HAYES. Maybe that is just because I think the Freebirds are Aewsome.

 

Love see Kamala rise up to Championship Bouts!

 

Keep up the great shows.

Big time energy in the crowd for this one. The youngster Sam Houston is getting to challenge for the TV title against Fabulous Freebird, Terry Gordy.

A big vertical suplex gets a two-count for the champion. A missed leaping elbow drop gives the challenger a small comeback. Houston tries to leap and hit a dropkick, but Gordy brushes him off. As Houston stumbles to his feet, Gordy nails a vicious looking Waistlock suplex for the win.

Main Event

Ten-Man Tag Team Match, One Fall, 45-Minute Time Limit

Barry Windham, Ricky Steamboat, Mad Dog Vachon, Butcher Vachon & US Champion, Terry Taylor

vs

Michael Hayes, Buddy Roberts, Pat Patterson, Ray Stevens & Randy Savage

HUGE 10-man tag team main event. This is just a chaotic match. Lots of brawling to begin. Each team tries to settle into a pace that is good for them, but the other team makes a tag and changes it up. Match is back and forth for the first 12-13 minutes. Finally, Savage tags in and gets Taylor down to the mat and works him over. Savage's team is able to get the US champion in their side of the ring for the next several minutes, working him over. Taylor is able to sneak free of a submission hold, causing enough seperation to get a tag for his team. That's when the brawl break out everywhere. Eventually, Savage gets Taylor down in the middle of the ring, climbs the ropes, leaps off and nails his famous Flying Elbow Drop. But the referee is busy trying to clear the ring of everyone else. As Savage tries to get the referee back, Barry Windham nails Savage to the outside. Taylor slides out of the ring. Steamboat slides in, as he is the legal man. Steamboat chops Buddy Roberts to the mat, and he climbs the ropes...leaps from the top rope with his Cross Body Block into a cover and gets the 3-count!

Time: 24:15

Winners: US Champion Terry Taylor, Ricky Steamboat, Barry Windham, & The Vachon's

Always interesting to see people's booking styles. Your Survivor Series rebooks must have run over with these great ten-man tags. Nice to see the Vachons (as grizzled veterans) getting that last run as babyfaces here. The thing I like about your roster is the old timers, youngsters, and then guys in their absolute primes. You've got a mix of everything and some legit star power to be built in the Mid Atlantic area. Great start to the rebirth of MACW.

Sorry but Michael Hayes, Buddy Roberts, Pat Patterson, Ray Stevens & Randy Savage as a team is what us as wrestling fans love to come across on house shows. For those few thousand in Columbia, they will talk about this for years to come. Hopefully there is footage of this team, because I know in this time line, people will be searching for this for some time...

Tony Schiavone: Welcome to Mid Atlantic Championship Wrestling! I'm Tony Schiavone, and this is David Crockett, and David we have a United States Title Match here to open up this week's show.

 

David Crockett: Thank you, Tony. We certainly do, the champion is looking for revenge after the assault that happened right here last week.

NWA United States Championship Match

One-Fall, 45-Minute Time Limit

Randy “Macho Man” Savage vs Terry Taylor ©

Taylor enters with his forehead bandaged up from last week's attack. Early moments are Taylor chasing Savage. Once Randy get's an advantage, he keeps on top of it. He rips off the bandage, re-opening the wound. Savage works over the champion. Lots of strikes to Taylor's head. He's bleeding badly. We take a commercial break during the match. When we return, Terry puts up a fight, even starting a small comeback. Savage backs into the ropes, causing a break, as the referee gets between the two, Savage gets an object from his tights, as Terry breaks away, Randy punches him in the face, as the champion just crumbles to the ground. Randy drops the object to the floor, then climbs to the top rope. He leaps and executes his flying elbow drop onto the chest of Taylor. He covers him for the 3-count.

Time: 16:21

Decision: New United States Champion, Randy Savage

 

Randy grabs the title belt and celebrates as he walks towards the set.

 

David: What did you hit him with?

 

Randy: Ohhhhh yeah! I did it! Just like I said I would. The “Macho Man” is THE MAN around here! David Crockett, that man felt the Madness. That man felt the Savage Elbow Drop from the heavens...OHHH YEAH!

 

David: You know what I'm talking about..what was that foreign object?

 

Randy: Are you questioning my integrity David Crockett? {Randy spins around, posing with the title belt.} I'm the United States Heavyweight Wrestling Champion. I'm the best wrestler EVER! Dig It?! OH Yeah!

 

David: Well I'm not getting anything new here, let's go to a break.

 

Savage: OH YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

 

COMMERCIAL BREAK

 

Tony: What a shocker, we already have a NEW United States Champion! Randy Savage just defeated Terry Taylor to win the title!

 

David: The medics are once again looking at Terry Taylor. We are told he is expected to be fine.

 

Tony: Coming up, we will hear from The Windham's, and Mr. Fuji.

 

David: Also in action, we will see The Fabulous Freebirds.

 

Tony: But right, let's bring out Pat Patterson and Ray Stevens

 

The crowd boos as the veteran tag team comes out.

 

Tony: Welcome gentlemen to Mid Atlantic Championship Wrestling

 

Ray Stevens: How's it feel, Tony?! To be graced with the best tag team in the world today.

 

Pat Patterson: That right, we are the best tag team in all of wrestling.

 

Tony: We understand you have a couple of big matches already signed, especially against The Moondogs, Rex and Spot.

 

Pat: What do we look like? Animal lovers? We are wrestler. We are the best tag team. Why would we be wrestling….these dog?!

 

Ray: Pat, don't worry. We will prove to everyone when we destroy those Moondog's, that we are only deserving of championship caliber matches. But first, let's go take care of these two in the ring now.

 

They leave the set and head to the ring.

 

Tag Team Match, One-Fall, 10-minute TV Time Limit

Not much of a competitive match here. The veterans take care of their opponent's in easy fashion. Patterson finishes off Knight with a leaping knee drop.

Time: 2:40

Decision: Ray Stevens & Pat Patterson

 

COMMERCIAL BREAK

 

Tony: Welcome back, and joining us at the desk is Barry and Kendall Windham! Gentlemen, the Freebird's, have been on your mind as of late.

 

Kendall: Yes, sir! Yes they have. They want to fight, us Windham's are ready! We'll fight.

 

Barry: Tony, these three guys have been running around here like they own this place. We've had some battles with them around the Mid Atlantic area, but we haven't settled our differences.

 

Tony: Tonight, in Richmond, at the Coliseum, you have another shot at these three. Will it end here?

 

Barry: I certainly hope we'll get some of the Freebird's tonight, but I don't know if it will ever be over. They're tough, they're cocky.

 

The Freebird's make their way out for their six-man tag team match. The crowd boo's loudly.

 

Barry: I think we'll just stay right here and see what happens, if you don't mind Tony.

 

Tony: Oh! No, not at all. David, let's take it to the ring.

 

 

Six-Man Tag Team Match, One-Fall, 15-Minute TV Time Limit

The Fabulous Freebirds vs Frank Williams, Terry Gibbs & Tony DeVito

The Freebirds easily handle their opponent's. They taunt The Windham's while they beat up their opponent's. Gordy gets into the ring and just physically destroys DeVito. The Windham's on commentary tell the 'birds to just finish the match and they can battle tonight, but the 'birds like punishing their opponent's. Eventually Hayes finally puts down DeVito with a Bulldog takedown. The attack the opponent's after the bell, which brings in the Windham's to battle it out. The numbers game catches up with them, but Sweet Daddy Siki runs in with a pipe and the Freebird's bail.

Time: 5:22

Decision: The Fabulous Freebird's

 

Tony: Sweet Daddy Siki saves the day here! He must be the surprise tag team partner of the Windham's for tonight's Bunkhouse Brawl in Richmond!

 

David: What a choice! The Freebird's didn't see that one coming!

 

Tony: That will be a brawl all over the building tonight.

 

David: We have to go to break, up next, Mr. Fuji!

 

COMMERCIAL BREAK

 

David: I'm joined by Mr. Fuji. I'm also joined by a number of wrestlers (Hiro Saito, Toru Tanaka & Tiger Chung Lee) that you've been closely associated with lately. What's the deal here?

 

Mr. Fuji: Ahhh, David-san, I've wrestled all over the world. I've seen many, many terrible, horrible things. Those thing's make me very happy ah ha ha. I've won so many championships, that I've decided I have nothing left to prove in the ring on a regular basis. But I still want to see people tortured, people scream and in agony! I've picked out these mean, vicious, warriors to bring under my wing. I've been teaching in the martial arts I've studied and perfected over the years. They will continue to torture all these weaklings for my amusement.

 

David: You're a sick man, Fuji.

 

Mr. Fuji: Ah, Thank you, David-san.

 

Fuji takes his crew to the ring. Hiro Saito climbs into the ring, and attacks the opponent immediately.

 

Single's Match, One-Fall, 10-Minute TV Time Limit

Hiro Saito (w/ Mr. Fuji & partners) vs Italian Stallion

Saito just levels Stallion. He pounds him with vicious karate chops. Fuji is yelling at him to use the nerve hold he's been taught. Saito locks in a trapeze nerve hold. Stallion almost passes out, but Fuji ordered the release of the hold. He then picks up him, waist locks him and gives him a belly to back bridging suplex (German suplex) for the three-count. Then Saito tosses Stallion from the ring while Fuji's men kick at him. All the men climb into the ring as Fuji celebrates.

Time: 4:10

Decision: Hiro Saito

 

Tony: What a wrecking crew Mr. Fuji has brought together.

 

David: He's an evil man. Who knows what he has in store for all the other wrestlers.

The reign of the Macho Man begins. I loved the title swap and while you could see it happening, pulling the trigger is always great.

 

The Richmond card is coming together. I think you've got some great pieces here and are fitting them in good spots. I personally love the Windhams vs Freebirds program right now.

 

Looking forward to Kamala becoming the man beast we all know and love out of all of this as well.

Tonight is a special one-night tournament. The winning tag team will earn a title shot against the NWA World Tag Team Champions. The match will be the next time we are in Fisherville, on March 2nd. The special attraction event tonight is a ten-man tag team match.

 

Opening Round Tag Team Match, One-Fall, 15-Minute Time Limit

Butcher & Mad Dog Vachon vs Hiro Saito & Toru Tanaka (w/ Mr. Fuji)

The team lead by Mr. Fuji really turn it up tonight. They have more energy and are showing a little more of a vicious side. Must be Fuji's influence. Vachon's take the fight to their younger opponent's, but eventually fall to Fuji's henchmen.

Time: 8:40

Decision: Hiro Saito & Toru Tanaka

 

Opening Round Tag Team Match, One-Fall, 15-Minute Time Limit

The Moondogs vs The Strongbows

Interesting tag team encounter here. Both teams liked by the crowd. A very clean, fun wrestling match to begin. Eventually the Strongbow's would take control of the match. They almost had the Moondog's pinned a few times, but the veterans battle back. Jay gets tossed to the floor and Jules gets slammed with a vicious powerslam by Rex for the 3-count.

Time: 8:03

Decision: The Moondogs

 

Opening Round Tag Team Match, One-Fall, 15-Minute Time Limit

Barry & Kendall Windham vs Ray Stevens & Pat Patterson

The story here is simple, youngsters vs veterans. A true battle back and forth early on. The veterans take the advantage after capitalizing on a mistake from Kendall. They work him over for nearly 10 minutes, but they mis-time a double-team, allowing Barry to make the hot tag. He comes in cleaning house. Sending both opponent's bouncing around the ring. He throws them together, and works over Stevens as the referee tries to get Patterson from the ring. Then as Kendall gets himself tagged back in, Patterson returns to knee Barry out of the ring. He pushes Kendall into a violent leaping knee from Stevens and they get the fall.

Time: 14:33

Decision: Pat Patterson & Ray Stevens

 

Opening Round Tag Team (Non-Title) Match, One-Fall, 15-Minute Time Limit

The Grapplers vs Blue Demon Jr & Pierroth Jr.

The Mexican team are immediate fan favorites because of the team they are facing. The use their high-flying moves to keep the champions off balance. But a leaping head scissors spells trouble for Blue Demon Jr, as he gets caught and dropped throat first against the ropes. The champions capitalize immediately, wearing him down. Eventually they drop him with a double-gut buster and get the pinfall.

Time: 7:11

Decision: The Grapplers

 

Single's Match, One-Fall, 15-Minute Time Limit

Kamala (w/ Skandor Akbar) vs Pez Whatley

Kamala enters the ring, and as soon as he gets his mask off, he attacks. Pez tries to battle back early, but the Ugandan Headhunter is too much for him. His nasty chops and vicious strikes takes Pez down early. A few hard kicks keeps Whatley down long enough for Kamala to get the momentum off the ropes, leaping and crushing Pez with a big splash. Three seconds later and we have a winner.

Time: 3:53

Decision: Kamala

 

 

Semi-Final Round Tag Team Match, One-Fall, 20-Minute Time Limit

Hiro Saito & Toru Tanaka (w/ Mr. Fuji) vs The Moondogs

The Moondogs are attacked before they even get to the ring by Fuji's men. A vicious beatdown with Fuji leading the charge. The referee eventually gets some order, and the match begins. Tanaka and Saito are real cocky, taking the unfair advantage. They double-team often and sneak in cheap-shots when they can get the referee to look the other way. Their cockiness gets them in trouble, after a missed double-team, they are both on the ground. Moondog Spot finally gets over to make the tag. Rex is on fire, punching and kicking both guys. He keeps both men backing off and getting knocked down. When Spot gets back up, he and Rex double-axe handle smashes Saito and they get the pin.

Time: 8:44

Decision: The Moondogs

 

Semi-Final Round, Tag Team Match, One-Fall, 20-Minute Time Limit

Ray Stevens & Pat Patterson vs The Grapplers

Another interesting match, as two villain teams battle each other now. This is fun to watch. The Grapplers are more of the cheating style, where Patterson/Stevens are more aggressive, but don't real cheat outright. This match goes over 15 minutes, and comes down to the Grapplers getting frustrated and behind the referee's back and tosses Stevens over the top rope. Since the referee missed it, there is no DQ. But while out there, Stevens pulls out something from his tights, as he finally gets back into the ring, he swings wildly, missing Grappler #2, the object drops, the referee sees it, but isn't sure who had it, as he questions both men and turns to toss the object, Stevens low blows Grappler #2 and school boys him, Patterson rushes in to nail #1 off the apron and they get the win.

Time: 17:22

Decision: Ray Stevens & Pat Patterson

 

Special Attraction Ten-Man Tag Team Match, One-Fall, 30-Minute Time Limit

US Champion Terry Taylor, Ricky Steamboat, Pedro Morales, Sweet Daddy Siki & Sam Houston

vs

World Champion Ric Flair, Randy Savage & The Fabulous Freebirds (Hayes, Gordy, Roberts)

We continue this night of tag team matches with a HUGE 10-man tag team attraction. This one is just a fun match, some good wrestling, breaks down into a big-time brawl, settles back down into a hot tag team match. This one goes the 30-minute time limit just as Terry Taylor was getting some revenge on Randy Savage. (The title match hasn't air on TV yet, neither man was announced as champion during the intros). They continue to brawl, until the referee's and other members of this match break it up. The Freebirds hold Savage back as they go to the locker room. Flair grabs his championship and struts off. Taylor's team raises their hands in a moral victory.

Time: 30:00

Decision: Time limit draw

 

Main Event

Final Round Tag Team Match, One-Fall, 30-Minute Time Limit

Ray Stevens & Pat Patterson vs The Moondogs

Based on the interviews at TV yesterday (airing tomorrow) this rivalry is born here. The Moondogs come out battled and injured from their last match. Stevens and Patterson come out worn out from their long battle. These two teams go at it. A classic tag team battle. Back and forth, Stevens and Patterson get Moondog Rex in their corner, working him over. They almost get a few near-falls. Rex battles out of the corner, and Spot comes in, but he gets caught and is worked over by the veterans. It looks like Patterson and Stevens have the Moondogs ripe for the picking. However, just as Stevens leaps off the ropes with a leaping knee smash, Spot moves, Stevens crashes into the mat. Both men make tags, Rex rushes into the ring, ducks a big Patterson clothesline, rebounds off the ropes and leaps with an incredible cross body block, taking down Patterson, cradling the leg, and getting the unbelievable pinfall! The crowd explodes at the finish.

Time: 19:54

Decision: The Moondogs

Waiting to see who is going to stand up and be the rival for Savage. He is such a plus on any roster.

 

Kamala continues to kill it. 2:21 match. He is too much for any ne to handle. Might need to go to the 5 count for a pin like King Kong Bundy did.

Single's Match, One-Fall, 15-Minute Time Limit

US Tag Team Champion, The Grappler #2 vs Mad Dog Vachon

Tag team wrestlers breaking off in single's competition today. Grappler #2 battles Mad Dog Vachon. Decent opener, fans booing the champion, and cheering loudly for the Mad Dog. However, the cheers weren't enough as Mad Dog goes down to the Grappler after a falling headbutt.

Time: 7:20

Decision: Grappler #2

 

Handicap Match, One-Fall, 15-Minute Time Limit

Kamala (w/ Skandor Akbar) vs Italian Stallion & Dusty Wolfe

Just as you would expect here. Kamala comes in, crushes both opponent's in no-time flat. He body slams one on top of another, bounces off the ring ropes for added momentum and leaps with the big splash onto both men. Referee gives it a 3-count and Kamala earns another victory.

Time: 3:17

Decision: Kamala

 

Single's Match, One-Fall, 15-Minute Time Limit

US Tag Team Champion, Grappler #1 vs Butcher Vachon

The tag team partners of both men in the opening contest battle it out here. Fans cheering for the Butcher. They are even more behind him now than in the opener, because they want to see him get some revenge from the earlier loss. Butcher does feel the crowd behind him, and uses that energy to drop Grappler #1 with a big-time vertical suplex and immediately follows that up with a big flying elbow smash for the win.

Time: 7:57

Decision: Butcher Vachon

 

Tag Team Match, One-Fall, 20-Minute Time Limit

Ray Stevens & Pat Patterson vs The Moondogs

This rivalry begins to get even hotter between these two teams. A little tease on TV during Patterson & Stevens' interview, but the Moondogs won't be anyone's stepping stones. They battle it out in the ring, going back and forth. Patterson & Stevens use some trickery and cheap tactics to get the Moondogs down for a pinfall.

Time: 11:04

Decision: Pat Patterson & Ray Stevens

NWA Mid Atlantic Television Championship Match, One-Fall, 15-Minute Time Limit

Pedro Morales vs Terry Gordy ©

Fun title match to open the second half of our show here. The fiery Pedro Morales challenges the TV Champion, Terry Gordy. The strikes in this match are just brutal. Pedro throwing the head forearms. Terry landing some violent punches to the side of the head. Gordy gets Pedro down after some back and forth and works over his neck. Pedro tries to battle back, but he's really injured. Gordy lays in some nasty knees to the back of the neck. The crowd is hot at Gordy, they do not want to see him retain this title, but unfortunately for them, he does just that. The referee stops the bout after he slaps on a camel clutch style move. Pedro is in a lot of pain.

Time: 11:43

Decision: Still TV Champion, Terry Gordy

 

 

 

 

 

Eight-Man Tag Team Match, One-Fall, 20-Minute Time Limit

Mr Fuji, Toru Tanaka, Tiger Chung Lee & Hiro Saito vs Lanny Poffo, Sivi Afi, Pierroth Jr. & Blue Demon Jr.

Fuji stays on the outside of the ring for the majority of the match. He orders his troops around, and they listen fairly well. They get Afi into their corner and work him over pretty good. Each of the three men keep rotating in and out, keeping a fresh man in. After a few minutes of getting a beat down, Afi is able to counter an attack and roll over to his corner for the big tag into Lanny Poffo. As soon as the tag hits, it becomes a huge brawl. All eight men in the ring, battling it out. Fuji sneaks a cheap shot to the throat on Afi, sending him to the floor. Fuji digs into his tights, pulling out something, tossing it into Lanny's eyes, blinding him. Saito gives Poffo a standing side kick to send him to the ground, leaps into the air and drops down with a back splash for the big win.

Time: 10:55

Decision: Mr. Fuji, Toru Tanaka, Tiger Chung Lee & Hiro Saito

 

Tag Team Match, One-Fall, 15-Minute Time Limit

Barry & Kendall Windham vs The Fabulous Freebirds (Hayes & Roberts)

All three Freebirds are in the ring as the Windhams walk to the ring, but they are attacked at ringside by all three 'birds. They brawl for a moment, but Gordy and Hayes target Kendall and send him into the post. Then they grab a wooden chair at ringside and break it over the kids head. He's a bloody mess. The 'birds enter the ring, all happy with themselves. Barry checks on Kendall. The referee's come out and take Kendall to the back. Barry still wants to fight. Sam Houston comes out from the locker room and offers to take Kendall's spot. The Freebirds are hot. The referee agrees, but sends Gordy to the locker room. Gordy refuses, but the referee says either leave, or he is fined $5,000. Gordy is pissed, but leaves. The 4-men brawl all over the ring and ringside. The referee let's it go because of the earlier incident. All four-men return to the ring bleeding. They keep brawling. No tags, just a lot of brawling. They keep battling through a 15-minute time limit. The eventually just brawl to the back.

Time: 15:00+

Decision: Time-Limit Draw

 

Main Event

Tag Team Match, One-Fall, 30-Minute Time Limit

Ricky Steamboat & Terry Taylor

vs

US Champion, Randy Savage & NWA World Heavyweight Champion, Ric Flair

Wrestling at it's best here. Some brawling when Savage and Taylor are inside the ring against each other, but otherwise a pretty straight forward wrestling match. The champions get Taylor in their corner and hammer on his leg pretty bad. Savage targets the bandaged head a little bit, but the real focus in the leg. Flair even locks in the Figure-Four at one-point, but Steamboat makes the save. When Taylor gets the tag, Steamboat rocks the champions with fast offense. Steamboat is on fire, chops and various kicks to both men. Flair is the legal man, and falls to the mat after a dropkick. Savage enters the ring and Steamboat cuts him off, then Taylor fly’s across the ring, tackling Savage to the floor. Taylor's leg is really hurt still, so he can't get right back up. As Steamboat turns around, Flair knocks him out with some brass knuckles and gets the pinfall. The champs grab their belts and retreat to the locker room.

Time: 27:42

Decision: World Champion, Ric Flair & US Champion, Randy Savage
