LowBlowPodcast Posted February 2, 2017 Report Share Posted February 2, 2017 WWF Wrestling Challenge Gorilla Monsoon & Bobby The Brain Heenan in studio Matches from Hamburg, PA – The Fieldhouse Greg Valentine w/ Jimmy Hart defeated Johnny Rivera -A nice showcase for Valentine. We get an inset from Tito who says he is going to settle the score tonight with Valentine and win the King of the Ring!! *COMMERCIAL* KING OF THE RING EVENT CENTER Mean Gene: Welcome ladies and gentlemen to the WWF Event Center, I am Gene Okerlund. Fans we are just hours away from the King of the Ring and it is going to be one of the most exciting WWF events of all time as we will see the top eight men in professional wrestling go after not only a crown and scepter but also the respect of everyone in the WWF. Before we get to the King of the Ring, I want to take a quick moment and talk about what happened last week on Superstars when we saw the debut of Blackjack Mulligan! Mulligan came to the aide of Sam Houston who was being beaten down and hurt by Ron Bass and Jack Lanza. Mulligan had these words for Bass… Blackjack Mulligan: Well lemme come right out and say it feels GOOD to be in the WWF and it feels even better to come out there and start a fight with a no good outlaw like Ron Bass. Bass you come out here and talk about being a true cowboy… well pal you must have fallen from your horse a couple times too many. Never before has a cowboy disrespected another like what you did last week. So now you walk out here with Jack Lanza, a man I know very very well and you act the way you act. You run down Sam Houston. Hell, I will take the courage of Sam Houston over anything the two of you have got combined! So Ron Bass… I am here… I am calling you out boy… one way or another… it is going to be time for us to take it out to the bunkhouse and see just who is the biggest and the baddest around! Mean Gene: I certainly wouldn’t want to be in Ron Bass’ shoes right now, but he does have a chance to show the world what he’s made of tonight in Los Angeles for the King of the Ring, but as we saw last week on Wrestling Challenge some people won’t get that chance. We saw the big battle royal for the final spot and in that battle royal; it was Larry Z who got shocked when Jay Youngblood dropkicked him over the top. Now, Larry Z has filed a full on complaint about the issue and says that it was David Sammartino, who did appear, that cost him the match and the spot… let’s hear from Larry… Larry Z: Now I know all you 9-5ers out there don’t know what it is like to live a life of luxury and be the best in the world at what you do, but you don’t understand what it feels like to have all of that taken away from you by a good for nothing punk who only has a job because of his daddy! David Sammartino, I am going to do to you what I did to your daddy a long time go and finish the job. You don’t belong in this sport. You don’t belong in the WWF. I came here for one thing and one thing only and that is the make sure that the Sammartino name goes down in disgrace as second best to Larry Z! Mean Gene: You have to say that Larry Z is definitely ready for a fight there. We will hear from Commissioner Sammartino next week and see what he has to say on the subject. Now we talked about Jay Youngblood getting his chance at the King of the Ring… however, his opponent, the Barbarian has been ruled out by his manager, Bobby Heenan. Heenan says that Barbarian is out, and he is about to tell us just who will take his place. Bobby Heenan: Let me tell all the humanoids out there something very quickly… as a man who prides himself on being the best, I always look for the best and the best is what I get. I spoke with the Barbarian the other day and even he has been dealing with some nagging injuries. This guy wrestles 7 days a week and twice on the weekends, it is bound to happen. Now I have my suspicions about who tried to hurt him… these masked guys… not sure who they are but I am going to figure it out… however… the real story is who is taking his place and I have found a man who epitomizes the sport of professional wrestling. He has been a champion everywhere he has wrestled. He is known throughout the world and he will be known here in the WWF as the King after tonight… ladies and gentlemen, and I use that term very loosely, HARLEY RACE!!! Harley Race: Don’t adjust your dial folks… what you see is reality. I spoke with Bobby Heenan and we have negotiated a contract that is fulfilling both of our needs. Number one… I am in the King of the Ring tonight and I will bet anything that I will win. Number two…. Once I win the King of the Ring, I am going to be the number one contender for that World’s Heavyweight Championship that Hulk Hogan carries around. You see right now Hogan it is just a belt, but when I get my hands on it, it becomes the real world title. I have beaten everyone in my path. I have destroyed careers. I have won titles. Tonight I win the King of the Ring and then… yes then Hulk Hogan… I am coming for you! Mean Gene: How about it fans, Harley Race has joined the WWF and he will be in the King of the Ring in Los Angeles tonight. This is going to be a historic evening and we will have all the outcomes right here on Superstars tomorrow fans! *COMMERCIAL* Bob Orton w/ Roddy Piper defeated Tony Zane -Heenan is just going nuts putting over Race but Gorilla wonders what will happen if Bundy wins tonight or even Piper down the line. Heenan says it doesn’t matter as long as the title isn’t around Hogan’s waist! Inside the ring, we see the Ace defeat Zane as Piper continues to run down Hogan to the fans. *COMMERCIAL* The British Bulldogs defeated Tony Falk & Terry Daniels -Tonight the Bulldogs get a real chance at glory when they face the Russians in a 2/3 Falls match. The crowd is one hundred percent behind them as they defeat Daniels and Falk today. What can they do against Ivan and Nikita tonight from Los Angeles? *COMMERCIAL* Tony Atlas vs Haku -A fun way to finish things off tonight as Heenan puts Haku over in the biggest way. We see a fun 8-minute match and the finish is great. Haku is looking to finish after he kicks Atlas in the throat. Atlas goes out of the ring and to the floor while Haku is talking to the referee. The referee then goes outside the ring to check on him while two masked men come out from under the ring and then hit a double clotheslines on Haku and a double suplex! Oblivious to all of this, the referee is able to help Tony Atlas to get back in the ring and make the cover for the victory. Heenan is going nuts about a conspiracy and wants to get to the bottom of this as we see Atlas try to recover and get a nice ovation from the fans. We finish the broadcast with a special hype video for tomorrows Superstars in which we will see the results of the King of the Ring! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
