CWA Championship Wrestling (Memphis)

Recommended Posts

CWA is fast becoming my favorite read. I love the Lawler/Rich feud and I can't wait to read your every week so I know which way to play it with my show.

 

Idol vs Flair

Briscos vs VonErichs or Fab Ones

Dundee vs HTM

Humongous/Bruise Brothers/Women/Blassie

 

Just love everything about it!

Thanks Kevin, much appreciated. I enjoy your USWA a lot as well and I'm having a blast with the back and forth of Lawler and Rich....I've been in Nashville since Thursday and just had a chance to get on here this afternoon. Will catch up on reading everyone's shows and post the rest of my week's shows in the coming days.

I agree. In just a few short weeks, CWA has become a force to be reckoned with and of the best pure territories we've seen in the game. I like the interchange of the talents with USWA and look forward to the summer of CWA.

I'm just catching up on Memphis and the CWA once again. I've really enjoyed all that I have read. Really a great job putting everything in place right off the bat. I echo just about all of the comments here. A very fun territory to enjoy.

CWA CHAMPIONSHIP WRESTLING

Evansville Coliseum

Evansville, IN.

May 23, 1984

Bell time 7:30pm

Thunderbolt Patterson pinned Tojo Yamamoto in 6:38 following a headbutt

The Honky Tonk Man and Col. Sonny King came down to the ring and demanded that Bill Dundee return the Television title belt because per Jerry Jarrett's own words, there is NO FOOTAGE of the ending of Monday Night's match in Memphis which means it was essentially a non-title match…..Dundee came to ringside wearing the belt and said he is the champion regardless because he PINNED the Honky Tonk Man in Memphis. Randy Hales came out and said that Jerry Jarrett is not here to make a ruling but if these guys wanna have a match for the title….there's a camera present….so let's go, right here….right now.

TV-5 TV TITLE MATCH

The Honky Tonk Man w/Col. Sonny King pinned "Superstar" Bill Dundee in 9:45 with King holding down Dundee's leg with referee Jerry Calhoun not seeing it. HTM and King run up the aisle with the championship belt while Dundee berates Calhoun for not seeing the interference.

"Dirty" Dutch Mantel pinned Lance Brisco in :39 with a school boy roll up…..As the bell ring, Lance Brisco came out and asked this match and the Southern Tag Title match please be rescheduled because the Brisco family is far too distraught to wrestle after tragedy struck this Monday in Memphis when "that coward Jerry Lawler tried to murder the great Fred Blassie." Dutch replied, "Your right, you've been through a lot….I'll make this quick" and caught him with a school boy roll up…..the crowd went nuts.

Louisville Gardens

Louisville, KY

May 25, 1984

Bell time- 8pm

Tiger Conway Jr. pinned Boris Zhukov with a sunset flip in 5:32

Lance Brisco came out to the ring and demanded that Randy Hales come out to the ring. Brisco told Hales that Jack and Jerry Brisco could not be in Louisville tonight for their Southern Tag Team title rematch due to the fact they had to fly out to California to be with Freddie Blassie as he is having plastic surgery to repair the damage from Jerry Lawler's fireball to his face. They did however demand that Stan Hansen and Bruiser Brody come out and surrender the belts to himself so he could return them to their rightful owners….The Fabulous Brisco Brothers. Hales asked Brody and Hansen to come out to the ring…which they did carrying the tag team title belts. Hansen informed Lance that they weren't going to hand over the titles belts but they did have something he could take back to Jack and Jerry….at that precise moment Brody hit Lance with a boot to the face that laid him out and he rolled out to the floor.

Hansen said since it sounded like those 'yellow bellied Briscos' were a no show, they didn't come all the way to Kentucky for nothing, so they are issuing an open challenge to any team who want a shot at the belts……('Everybody wants you' plays which brings out Stan Lane and Steve Keirn….The Fabulous Ones) Steve Keirn informed Randy Hales that they would like to accept the challenge….Hansen nodded in agreement and Hales announces the match will take place in tonight's main event.

Ox Baker defeated Tommy Gilbert after a heart punch in 3:11

The New Generation (Johnny Wilhoitt/Mark Batten) beat The Bruise Brothers (Troy Graham/Porkchop Cash) when Batten pinned Cash after a dropkick off the top rope in 13:54

I can't get over how great this TV Title angles is and has me waiting for the next show.

 

Fab Ones now have two titles and might just be the best team in all the game.

 

Love the Lance Brisco angle by the way.

I haven't been to Memphis in quite some time and if I did come to Memphis to attack Jerry Lawler or throw fire in his face I wouldn't put a mask on to do it. So I tell ya what Lawler, enough is enough….I'm throwing down the challenge right now…I know you have a big cage match this week with Austin Idol but NEXT WEEK…win, lose, or draw……I want you in the ring….one on one and I'm gonna shut your big mouth once and for all!"
