Mid Atlantic Championship Wrestling- May 86


Recommended Posts

MACW @ WTBS Studios TV aired 5-3-86


Schiavone: Hello everybody and welcome to another edition of Mid Atlantic Championship Wrestling. My partner David Crockett along with his brother Jim are up in Canada watching the Johnny Rougeau Memorial Cup. We'll give you some highlights of that historic event next week. As for tonight, the Universal Heartthrob Austin Idol will take on one half of the Stud Stable, Jimmy Golden. Boogie Woogie Man Jimmy Valiant takes on Paul Jones's newest acquisition, Rip Oliver. Also in action will be Hacksaw Duggan, Jimmy Snuka, Tony St. Clair, The Cobra, Mark Youngblood, Blackjack Mulligan and Polynesian Power. We will hear from the US Tag Champs, Rocky Johnson and Wendell Cooley. All this, plus words from the United States Champion, The Million Dollar Man Ted Dibiase, while on his vacation. Right now I want to bring out Jeff Sword and Doug Vines, the Devil's Duo.


The Duo come out to some cheers.


Schiavone: Gentleman from what went down last week, apparently you are no longer associated with Paul Jones. Seems like he has a new team, Johnny Rich and Randy Rose, the Southern Ramblers.


Vines: You know it's high time my partner and I went back to our roots. We knew it was time a couple months ago when we started tearing it up at Billy Bob's in Texas.


Sword: That's right! Wild West Wrestling brought us back to our good ol bar room brawling days. With that in mind, we're going back to our old name, the Bar Room Brawlers!


Vines: Southern Ramblers, you want a brawl? Then come on! Because we're damn well ready for it!


Sword: And if you don't believe us, then watch us in action right now!


Bar Room Brawlers head to the ring.

Schiavone: Fans, this weekend in Greensboro, The Midnight Express come to town to defend the NWA National Tag Team Championships against my guests at this time, Billy Travis and Joe Savoldi, Hot Property.


The fans cheer as Hot Property comes to the podium.


Savoldi: You know when I was in Puerto Rico, my partner was taken out of action by the Stud Stable, forcing us to give up our shot at the US titles. Now we get an opportunity of a lifetime as we get a shot at the National Tag Titles.


Travis: Stud Stable, bad karma got the best of you and you lost the US titles. Now I haven't forgotten what you cowards did to me and my partner and I will get our own payback. Right now we have to focus on the Midnight Express and the National titles. We hear Jimmy Cornette was laughing and couldn't believe they actually had to travel to Greensboro and face a team like us. Cornette, don't underestimate Hot Property.


Savoldi: That would be a huge mistake!

Tony: Yes, you're right. David cost me a match against Robinson. Now before I deal with young David, Billy and I have unfinished business. This weekend in Greensboro, you and me, one more time around the bend old friend. And here's the kicker, if I don't beat you, I will leave Mid Atlantic. That's right Billy, you just have to beat me and I'm gone. But listen real closely...I'm not going anywhere!

Cooley: Tony, Rocky Johnson and I said it from the start, we will be fighting champions and we aren't about to duck anyone. The Fabulous Blondes want to take short cuts on us, well boys it's going to take a lot more than that to get these belts off us.


Johnson: Crews! Timbs! Oh and we didn't forget about the mouth, Rock Riddle. All you boys did was fire us up! You want your shot, we're inviting you to come and get it! And mouth, if you want to interfere, go right ahead because I would love nothing more than to shut your big mouth up!

We have teamed up before and we have left men lying in their own blood! On May 25th, the Road Warriors will have to defend their titles against myself and Abdullah the Butcher!

Schiavone: Trainers are still attending to the Stud Stable...


The fans cheer as Tui Selinga storms out.


Tui: Sheik! Smirnoff! You made a grave mistake by hurting my partner. Sakalia is in the back right now with Doctors. You cowards will pay for this! Mark my words, you will pay!


Schiavone: My goodness, a very emotional and fired up Tui Selinga. I wouldn't want to be in the shoes of the Caspian Empire right now. Ok, fans we want to take you to some pre recorded comments from the United States Champion, The Million Dollar man, Ted Dibiase.


Dibiase is relaxing by a swimming pool.


Dibiase: (Laughs) I thought I would spend some of my hard earned money on a much needed vacation. You see while all the top names in wrestling are fighting for the Cup up in Canada, I'm just relaxing. After all, I don't have anything to prove. The Million Dollar Man is now calling the shots. I have the money and I have the United States Championship, so I can do whatever I want. Now, Hacksaw Duggan has been whining and crying since I beat him to win the US title. Now he goes out and gets a special mystery partner to face myself and Stan Hansen. (Laughs) Duggan, do you really think you and anybody on this planet can beat myself and Hansen? Don't worry Duggan, we'll be in Orlando on the 10th because I want to be done with you once and for all. On to the big news. Out of the kindness of my heart, I've decided to grace all the minimum wage making peons with a special television appearance next week. I figure why not give the viewers something to look forward to.


The show ends with Dibiase laughing.

Bar Room Brawlers is a better name for a good guy team than Devil's Duo, in my opinion.


...and then they go and live right up to that name. So you've got brawling good guys and, with The Cobra, a high-flying and athletic bad guy. I love it!


Of course, with Mark Youngblood, Hot Property, Jimmy Snuka, and so on you have your share of athletic babyfaces as well.


Caspian Empire vs Tui & Sakalia continues to be an entertaining feud.


I like how you use the managers in this promotion. It gives a real 80s feel, and it's something I miss about current pro wrestling.


I love a good Mystery Partner angle. Duggan will need to pick a good one, to counter Stan Hansen!


That Memorial Day card looks great.

Post Promos from the Johnny Rougeau Memorial Cup

Inside the Locker Rooms of the Forum de Montreal


Harley Race: My defeat to Paul Orndorff does not sit well with me. As a matter of fact it's boiling me up inside! Orndorff! This isn't over. You may have beaten me in the tournament but there is no way in hell you're going to beat me for my Mid Atlantic Title! On May 25th at the Memorial Day Event, this title is on the line. I guarantee you wont be getting another fluke win. The next time we meet, it's going to be your head crashing down courtesy of my move...the piledriver!


Paul Orndorff: Harley! I've got your number and brother your time is up. The ending on the 25th will be the same, except next time it happens I'll be holding up the Mid Atlantic title!


Post Promo Inside the Locker Room after Prelude


Don Kernodle: (holding his Canadian International title) You see what perseverance gets you (holds the title up higher) I stayed focused and kept my eye on the prize. This is my most proudest achievement in my career. You know, they call me the Pride of the USA, but now I'm the pride of Canada as well.


Corporal Kirchner walks in with a look of disbelief.


Kernodle: Kirch, buddy, come on in and join the celebration! I told you I would get gold and by golly I did it, I really did it! I'm so glad you came out here to witness it.


Kirchner: Don, I just don't know what to say. I mean, I know you have been on the edge lately but I never thought you would resort to such low tactics. Don, you threw a man of a scaffold! And to make matters worse, you took advantage of that.


Kernodle: Whoa, easy Kirch, take it easy. I merely saw an opportunity and capitalized on it, that's all I did. It all paid off and this here title is the end result. Don't worry buddy, we're still a team, but as the pride of Canada I'll have to fulfill my championship obligations up here as well. Now come on, let's celebrate.


Kirchner: I thought I knew you Don but obviously I was wrong. I never thought you would stoop this low. I think I'm better off on my own right now.


Kernodle: I'm sorry you feel that way. I thought you and I wanted the same things but looks like you just don't have what it takes. You want to fly solo, ok that's fine with me. Let's end on a handshake.


Kernodle extends his hand.


Kirchner: I'm sorry Don, I just cant shake your hand right now.


Kirchner turns around to walk away and WHAM! Kernodle hits him on the back of his head with the championship belt!!! Kernodle picks up Kirchner and throws him into the lockers! Kirchner is busted open. Other wrestlers run in to stop Kernodle.

Some really nice matches on your TV show including Idol vs Fuller and Rip Oliver vs Jimmy Valiant. Very smart not give too much for free here with some wild endings.


Dibiase at the pool is priceless and why in a matter of weeks he is one of the top guys in the NWA!


Polynesian Power vs Caspian Empire is great!


I wonder if Cornette will get in trouble for crossing state lines with that tennis racket... it is a deadly weapon throughout the NWA

You do a nice job here of advancing and creating story-lines through in-ring action. The heels losing but then beating down the faces is a very effective way to keep things going. So is having the heels win by cheating or due to interference.


I particularly like how you maybe set up for something between St. Clair and Singh just through their actions in and around the ring.


The Bundy storyline continues to be one of my favourite things in this whole project.

I liked the TV with the Bar Room Brawlers getting themselves a new name and a couple of marquee matches that extend storylines. You also set up a couple of amazing tag matches with probably the biggest threat to the Roadies so far in Abby/Singh as a team. Dibiase's promo hit all the right notes and he is really making his mark in Flair's absence.


Kernodle attacking Kirchner in Canada is a perfect way to cap off the heel turn.


St. Clair and Singh is a good clash of styles feud. Who is going to get the big boost (and really tough feud that comes with it) of beating Bundy for the $10k? Midnights come in and put Hot Property over even while they win, which is I think why they are the champs in the first place. Johnson gives Teddy all he can handle, but comes up short. I like Rocky Johnson as a just below main event level face that can threaten all of the heels on the roster.

What a loaded show in Greensboro... just awesome lineup. I like the Johnson vs Ted matchup. I don't think Atlas was used correctly in 1986 in the WWF so to see him used the right way here is great. I also like the MXE here... perhaps them and the Road Warriors down the line but there are so many challengers for each it makes for a ton of interesting matchups.

I think it is my bias coming out as a ran Polynesian Pro Wrestling in another game but I could just here the crowd chanting Tui Tui Tui!


Prichard, Fuller and Riddle remind me of the Heavenly Bodies from SMW as together they are dastardly as Hell!


I just remember Backlund shaking those fists to the WWF crowd back in the day and them all going nuts! He always seemed a little goofy and I might have sided with Rheingans and the lowblow!


All is right in the World when the show ends after Duggan charges at someone!


Great show! Wish I got to see MACW as a kid but I don't think it was on in NY

I liked Tui coming in to avenge his loss a lot. Brown Sugar against the Assassin would have been a fun match. Backlund vs. Rheingans is one of the better undercard feuds going on right now. Duggan winning the main is a great way to send the fans home happy.

MACW @ WTBS Studios TV aired 5-10-86

Highlights are shown of Don Kernodle throwing Jacques Rougeau off the scaffold. Then highlights are shown of Kernodle winning the Canadian International Title from Jacques a few days later at Prelude. This is followed by the locker room interview that ended with Kernodle hitting Kirchner with the title and busting him open.

Schiavone: Welcome everybody to another edition of Mid Atlantic Championship Wrestling. With me is my partner David Crockett. Welcome back David.


Crockett: Thank you Tony. First of all, on behalf of Mid Atlantic I would like to congratulate Giant Baba on winning the historic Johnny Rougeau Memorial Cup. Now, we just saw the events and actions of Don Kernodle. Needless to say I was shocked at the tactics of Don Kernodle. We will be hearing from his former partner, Corporal Kirchner momentarily.


Schiavone: That should be interesting. Ok fans tonight the United States Champion, the Million Dollar Man Ted Dibiase will make his first studio appearance. In action, from Lutte is Armand Rougeau. Tom Prichard will have a TV title defense against Cowboy Scott Casey. Also in action will be Rolling Thunder, The Assassins, Rob Fuller, Terry Taylor, Mr. Brad Rheingans, Jimmy Valiant and the team of Billy Robinson and David Sammartino. Our main event will be The Cobra taking on Sweet Brown Sugar.


Crockett: That should be an outstanding match up, as these men have been going at it. We will also hear from Mr. Wonderful Paul Orndorff and show you highlights of a brutal attack by Tiger Jeet Singh on Tony St. Clair. Fans joining us right now is Corporal Kirchner. We all saw the footage and I cant imagine what must be going through your head.


Kirchner: (Bandage on his forehead) David, words cannot explain how I'm feeling right now. I knew Don was going through a rough time and feeling frustrated but I really thought we had that worked out. What he did to Jacques Rougeau was inexcusable. I couldn't even talk to Don. I didn't even leave my hotel room for three nights. I went to Prelude to talk with Jacques face to face and apologized for the actions of Don. At the end of the night I had no choice but to confront Don. Then he hits me over the head with the title. (He rips the bandage off his head) Don! You made a big mistake! The only thing I have to say is...this means war!


Kirchner storms off.


Crockett: Wow! A strong message by Corporal Kirchner to one Don Kernodle. Ok fans, lets go to the ring.

Fuller: First of all Tony Schiavone, did you see how I owned that boy in the ring? That was something indeed. Now, thanks to that no good dirty Austin Idol, my partner Jimmy Golden will be out of action for awhile. Because of that heinous act, the Stud Stable cannot go after our US tag titles.

The fans boo as JJ Dillon walks out with his briefcase full of cash.


JJ: Ahhhh, to be young again, and in this case to be very stupid. Armand, I will say you have courage. You don't have any brains but you do have guts. King Kong Bundy isn't here today but rest assured he will be in Orlando. Now, out of the kindness of my heart I'm going to give you a chance to fly back to Canada in one piece. Just walk away kid, trust me, nobody will blame you.

(Dibiase pauses and looks around) You know David, as I look around this studio, I see why I haven't made an appearance here. Is this place even up to code? Well, it is fitting for all these low class, minimum wage making peons out here. I'm sure this is a step up from where they live. I'll have to think long and hard before I come back here. I sell out 15,000 seat arenas. I deserve so much better. Until further notice, I'm not doing anything for free, the people will have to pay to see me wrestle. I've got to get out of here, this place is making me sick.


Dibiase leaves to thundering boos.

I would be careful if I were JJ Dillon. Armand Rougeau might not win the $10,000 challenge against King Kong Bundy but he better think twice about roughing up the younger Rougeau. After all, the Rougeaus are a tight bunch and they won't take it lightly!

Look at that card in Richmond... I will say this... I know we did the Horsemen deal and some weren't fond of it... but when I see this card it makes me know that MACW is hot right now and more unpredictable. With the Horsemen you had to follow a specific formula but now you have an open book. Very strong top of the card and some great undercard contests... I like this direction.
