GeneJackson95 Posted September 23, 2018 Report Share Posted September 23, 2018 (Live from the Peabody Hotel in Memphis, TN, Bill Apter approaches the podium….on one side sits 'Cowboy' Bill Watts and Jim Ross, on the other side sits "Tn. Stud" Ron Fuller and Magnum T.A.) Apter: "Hello everyone and thank you for attending today's press conference and right now without further ado, please welcome 'Cowboy' Bill Watts." Watts: "Good afternoon everybody. We've called this press conference to let everyone know about some big changes we're undergoing in the Universal Wrestling Federation. First, I want to say that it's unfortunate the turmoil that's gone on in the National Wrestling Alliance in the past several weeks. Promotions have folded, bookers have changed and the future of the NWA is quite unclear at this time. Due to all of this the UWF is officially withdrawing from the NWA and any UWF wrestler who holds an NWA championship officially forfeits it effective immediately. We no longer recognize the NWA World Championship and moving forward Magnum T.A. is officially the UWF World Heavyweight Champion. As we make this move the UWF is looking to expand and step to the forefront to compete with the other national promotions. We want to announce that we have a new television show in national syndication, 'UWF Power Pro Wrestling'. This show will debut next weekend in a market near you and will be hosted by Jim Ross and he will be joined by his co-host Ron Fuller. We're also happy to have Lance Russell as part of the broadcast team conducting interviews as well." Apter: "Bill, I understand that you also have a big show lined up here in Memphis at the Mid-South Coliseum on September 27th." Watts: "We certainly do. We'll bring the World Champion Magnum T.A. up to talk about that in a moment but first I want to mention that we're doing away with the Southern Heavyweight Championship, but we'll be replacing it with the UWF World Television Championship. We'll have a tournament starting on Power Pro Wrestling next weekend to crown the UWF World Television Champion. Magnum, step up to the podium and speak to the press." Magnum: "Thank you, Cowboy. I just want to say that I'm proud to be the UWF World Heavyweight Champion and I will defend this title with honor and integrity….." (At this point Ivan and Nikita Koloff crash the press conference and approach the podium as Bill Watts gets between the Russians and Magnum) Ivan: "If you have even one ounce of this so called honor and integrity you speak of…..you will agree to defend the title against my nephew Nikita next week here in Memphis!" Magnum: "Listen, after everything you two have done to me…I'll gladly defend the title against Nikita here in Memphis! All the Cowboy has to do is sign the contract and you can get your title shot and I'll get my revenge…..and Ivan, I'm going to have someone in my corner to make sure you don't interfere!" Watts: "You know what…I like that sound of that….so let's do it….next week at the Mid-South Coliseum in the Main Event for the UWF World Heavyweight Championship Magnum T.A. vs. Nikita Koloff with Ivan Koloff handcuffed to….." Magnum: " 'Dr. Death' Steve Williams!" (the Koloffs leave the podium seemingly unhappy at the announcement of Dr Death being handcuffed to Ivan) Watts: "Also on the card here in Memphis, we'll see a rematch for the UWF World Tag Team titles the Midnight Express w/Jim Cornette vs. Brad Armstrong/Jeff Jarrett, UWF Continental Champion Terry Taylor will defend against Lex Luger w/Baby Doll & Ernie Ladd, a #1 Contender's match with the Rock & Roll Express against the Fabulous Ones w/Ernie Ladd, and a Special Challenge Match with Memphis' own Jerry 'the King' Lawler taking on King Kong Bundy w/General Skandar Akbar. We looking forward to seeing you all soon in a town near you for great UWF action!" Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
