Whoa! Talk about an awesome first show. I'd love to see young Benoit fight Bill Dundee. Steiners are a great choice as Tag Champs. And I can only imagine the Flair vs Lance Von Erich match being brought up in "All Time Best Carry Jobs" threads 30 kayfabe years down the road. :lol:

Hopefully John Travolta is rolling around Billy Bobs with Scott Glenn and the mechanical bull. I love the change up and the shows. I am still a little on edge with Benoit in the main events at this point in his career... but when you look at his resume in this world we've created... it really makes sense and works on a different level. I congratulate you guys on building him into one of the premier rookie talents in the world.

Gilbert: "Oh you guys are real tough beating up two chumps like the Moondogs…..but you guys didn't have the guts to face the Wild West Tag Team Champions…the Steiner Brothers." (Hawk asks for a mic)

Hawk: "WEEEELLLLLL……Edward….I guess it's their lucky day because we're still in the ring…and we've got a few extra minutes to kick the shit out of them too if they'd like to step in between these ropes."

Gilbert: "Whoah…whoah….now just because we're in a bar doesn't mean you have to use that kind of language. These guys are collegiate athletes. Not a couple of bar fighters from Chicago…You two come back with those UWF titles on the line and THEN they will step in the ring and give you a wrestling lesson!"

Another fun show. LOL at Missing Link chasing Missy Hyatt out of the bar. Looking forward to Road Warriors and Steiners. Although I really liked the Road Warriors and Moondogs going at it in this environment. Congrats to Lance Von Erich. He looked good against Flair and kept the momentum going to win the tournament. Poor Rip Rogers, I imagine that will put him on the sidelines for a bit.

A big thank you from MACW for giving Hot Property a great push. This will be a great confidence boost. I'm sure Dundee will want some answers from Street. This environment is such a great setting for all these different characters. I have a feeling Eddie Gilbert is going to bust loose soon.
