The Movement interfering and helping Roosevelt Jones defeat George Wells in a ghetto street fight. Later, The Movement enlist Sonny King to manage Jones. Adonis and Murdoch retain the TNT titles defeating The Roughnecks. Rick Martel debuts and defeats Jumbo Tsuruta. Super Samoans beat the Cuban Assassins in a tornado match.

Lance Russell: Hello everybody and welcome to another edition of TNT wrestling here on the USA Network. Well as you just saw, WrestleStorm 84 was a huge success and a historic night for TNT wrestling. All I can say is I cant wait for WrestleStorm 85. We've got a big night of wrestling tonight. Because he won the battle royal at WrestleStorm, Tom Prichard will get his TNT title shot tonight against Bill Dundee. Also tonight will be a tag team battle royal and the winners will face the TNT tag champs Adrian Adonis and Dick Murdoch next week on our special Christmas show. More on that later. And Jerry Blackwell makes his TNT televised debut. Fans let's get to the ring. 

 

TNT Brass Knuckles Champ Carlos Colon vs. Gary Williams

The fans cheer as the new brass knuckles champ makes his way to the ring. The match is all Colon. He swings Williams to the ropes and flips him over with a knee to the mid section. Colon climbs to the top rope. Williams staggers up and Colon nails him with a flying clothesline to get the pin! The fans cheer as Colon holds his brass knuckles title high. 

Colon cuts a promo and says he came here for the hard hitting competition and will take on TNT's toughest. 

 

Commercial Break 

 

Lance: As mentioned earlier, next week TNT will present a special Christmas gift for the fans. On that show every title will be defended. The winner of tonight's TNT title bout between Dundee and Prichard will defend the TNT title against Jerry Lawler! Austin Idol will defend the TV title against Rick Martel. Solidarity will defend the AWA Southern tag titles against The Super Samoans. Carlos Colon will defend the brass knuckles title against Boris Zhukov and the winners of tonight's tag battle royal will get a TNT tag title shot. Should be a fun night....

Boos as Johnny Valiant comes out.

 

Valiant: Hold on just a minute baby. I'm here to make a bombshell of an announcement. That's right, I have acquired the rights to none other than The Amazing Ricky Vaughn! 

Boos as Vaughn arrogantly walks out in a glitter robe.

Footage is shown from WrestleStorm as Vaughn attacks his partner McGhee during the battle royal and rams him into the steel post. 

Valiant: This phenomenal wrestler was held back by that loser Scott McGhee. Well now he gets the spotlight he deserves. I'm taking him to the stars and it starts now.

 

"The Amazing" Ricky Vaughn w/Johnny Valiant vs. Steve Rooney 

Vaughn works over Rooney with ease then slaps his face. Vaughn swings Rooney to the turnbuckles and charges in with a clothesline. Vaughn suplexes him back then goes to the top rope and hits a diving knee drop for the win!

Commercial Break 

 

TNT Tag Champs Dick Murdoch and Adrian Adonis vs. Sam and Sean Smith

The champs make quick work of their opponents as Murdoch hits a brainbuster on Sam then tags in Adonis. Adonis clamps on the Goodnight Irene and gets the win! The fans boo as they head to the podium. 

Lance: Ok champs, you will be defending the titles against tonight's battle royal winners. 

Murdoch: Who cares who wins tonight because the only thing they win is an ass whip'n by us! 

Adonis: That's exactly right! There's nobody man enough to take these titles and we're going to prove that once again come next week.

Murdoch: Bring em on! 

Lance: Ok they seem focused and ready. Fans, at WrestleStorm Mike Shaw and DJ Peterson were unable to participate in the battle royal. I understand we have some footage of what went down in the hallway right before the battle royal. 

Footage is shown of the Blonde Bombers (Jerry Grey and Steve Regal) attack Shaw and DJ. They beat them with chairs and slam them against the walls. 

Boos as Johnny Valiant once again comes out with his Blonde Bombers. 

Lance: Just what was that all about. 

Valiant: The theme tonight is that Valiant's men are no longer taking a back seat to anyone! Fat Shaw and Dumb DJ announced they were forming a team, well good for them but my Blonde Bombers are a real tag team and what you just saw was a statement. Those idiots want to be a tag team? Well my Blonde Bombers showed them what a real team is all about.

Lance: Ok, well both of those teams will be in the battle royal. I don't think that was a smart move. The battle royal is next.

 

Commercial Break 

 

TAG TEAM BATTLE ROYAL- Winner gets a TNT tag title shot 

Teams- Rolling Thunder (Shaw/DJ), The Blonde Bombers, The Cuban Assassins, High Octane (Poffo/Savoldi), Gino Brito and Tony Parisi, The Oates Wrecking Crew, Roughnecks, and Curt and Larry Hennig! 

When one member of a team is eliminated, the team is eliminated.

The bell rings and it's chaos! Rolling Thunder go right after the Blonde Bombers and pound away. The Oates are fighting with Brito and Parisi, High Octane and The Roughnecks are trading blows. The Hennigs and Cuban Assassins are going at it.

Steve Regal and Johnny Valiant jump into the ring and attack Shaw. DJ runs over and shoulder blocks them through the ropes. While that is happening, the Oates take advantage and throw Shaw over the top. 

It's down to the Oates and Hennigs. Both teams hammer away on each other. Gene Anderson is on the outside cheering his team on. Oates take Larry down and proceed to double team Curt. They hang him over the rope and try to hoist him over. Larry gets up. Gene shouts at his men. Ted looks back and gets clotheslined over the top rope just as Curt regroups and back drops Jerry over the top rope! 

The fans roar as Larry and Curt Hennig celebrate while Gene is throwing a fit.

King is shouting encouragement as Jones stomps away. Jones picks up Denny and rams him headfirst into the steel post, busting Denny open. Jones picks up Denny and slams him on the concrete. Jones gets up on the apron and is ready to jump down on Denny but Cocoa Samoa runs out and gets in front of Denny and warns Jones. Officials come out to stop this. 

 

Commercial Break

 

Lance: Oh my, Denny Brown was stretchered out of here. Thank goodness Cocoa Samoa showed up. 

Boos as Sonny King and Roosevelt Jones come out.

King: I told you and all these idiots, Roosevelt Jones was going to get his due. The Movement in TNT is alive and well. Denny Brown was just a victim and Cocoa Samoa, you want to stick your nose in our business?

Jones: That just means you're next boy! Just ask George Wells what happens when you cross the movement. 

Lance: A very dangerous twosome indeed. Well joining me now are the new AWA Southern tag champs, Carl Fergie and Gary Young along with Art Crews and Mark Fleming collectively known as Solidarity. Well with a little help, you guys managed to upset the Fabulous Ones at WrestleStorm. 

Fergie: All for one 

Young/Crews/Fleming: And one for all! 

Fergie: We did it Lance! We really did it! Solidarity are the new AWA Southern tag team champions. And guess what? Since we are a unit we get to pull out the Freebird rule.

Young: That's right, the Freebird rule.

Crews: Yea, the Freebird rule

Fleming: (smiling and nodding) the Freebird rule

Fergie: That means any one from Solidarity can defend these here titles. So next week, Super Samoans, you just don't know which two members of Solidarity you'll be facing. (Laughs) Ah the beauty of being in a group and the perks of being champions. 

All of them: Solidarity! 

 

Commercial Break

 

Hercules Ayala storms the podium.

ayala.jpg.c5833d3387eef59bc5dd45003733e725.jpg

Ayala: Why don't I get the rematch with that gutless Colon next week!?!? Why?! Because he's afraid! That's my title Colon! 

Ayala yells at Lance. 

The fans cheer as Jerry Blackwell comes out for his TNT televised debut.

blackwell.jpg.266179788a7827d58b1d2d444d032f3e.jpg

Ayala storms towards the back but stops as Blackwell is standing in front of him. Ayala yells and points at Blackwell. Ayala walks by as Blackwell stares at him. Blackwell heads towards the ring WHAM! Ayala nails him from behind! Ayala gets him down and just pounds away on his head with closed fists. Ayala keeps pounding away until Carlos Colon runs out and stops it! Ayala warns Colon as he backs away. 

 

Lance: Wow, what a night it's been. I...

Boos as Gene Anderson comes out. 

Gene: This will be short and simple. First off, those Hennig's don't know what family unity is all about. The Oates Wrecking Crew know exactly what that's about and they're going to show the Hennig's what family unity is all about. Next up, I'm so disgusted on how Jumbo Tsuruta has been treated here since his arrival that I've decided he needed time away from TNT until his unfair treatment gets resolved. He's going back to Japan until further notice. That is all! 

Lance: Boy tensions are high tonight. Before we come back for the  TNT title main event, let's hear from  Jerry "The King' Lawler, who was at a special autograph signing.  

Lawler: I cant tell you how sweet WrestleStorm 84 was. I cant tell you how fun it was as Jerry Blackwell and myself totally dismantled Dundee, Idol and Dream Machine. Next week I get to finally have a chance at regaining the TNT title. Dundee, if you're lucky enough to get past Prichard tonight then you get me next week. I've got you just where I want you!

Must say that I was rooting for the Hennigs in the big tag match.  Looking for ward to seeing them go for the title.

Nice development of Ricky Vaughn.  I think he really needed a manager in real life as he was not great on the mic

Roosevelt Jones is one of my favorite character developments in the entire game.

Knocking down Blackwell is a bug accomplishment for Ayala.... wonder if Colon will be next.

Prichard should have known that he wasn't going to get a fair shot with Dundee... think the Dr. needs some  friends.

Wow... TNT is giving away a major card for the fans on Christmas

TNT Special Christmas Gift to the Fans TV Show @ The Roanne Fieldhouse

Lance Russell: Hello everybody and welcome to a very special TNT program here on the USA Network. You will see 5 title matches tonight. That's right, 5 title matches! Before we get to the action I want to bring out the owner of TNT, Mr. Jerry Jarrett. Jerry I understand you have a major announcement to make. 

Jarrett: Thank you Lance. First I want to say how much I enjoyed TNT wrestling and the tremendous success the promotion had working under the AWA banner in 1984. As you know the wrestling industry is changing at a rapid pace. For the past few weeks I've been in meetings with Verne Gagne and the USA network executives. After some serious talks, the USA network felt it was time for TNT to withdraw from the AWA and become it's own entity. I pondered this for quite a while and then had a one on one meeting with Verne Gagne. The meeting ended with a handshake. So I want to officially announce that as of January 1st, 1985, TNT will become the United States Wrestling Association, the USWA. There will be a lot of talent coming in and going out. I will give you a full agenda in the days to come. I want to thank all the fans who supported the TNT brand. 1985 will be a great year as the USWA will bring you non stop action here on the USA network. In the meantime, enjoy tonight's incredible action. 

Lance: Oh my! Big news indeed. Well I have to say TNT will end with a bang with tonight's program. Very exciting times ahead. Well, let's get to the ring.

Lance: (smiling) Well it's official and you better get in there.

Looking forward to USWA

Great opening as the Samoans get jumped by the Fab Ones step in and Win the belts.  Fab Ones are a great choice to hold the belts

Great first appearance by Sarge.  He is much better as a fan favorite then a heel

Looking forward to Martel and Idol going more than 10 minutes.  That is a fun match up

Interesting pairing with Baby Doll joining Murdoch and Adonis.  I think Baby Doll could have used a fist instead of a purse.  She was one big lady.  She is going to cause chaos in the USWA

Dundee vs Lawler... What a way to end TNT and head to 1985!

United States Wrestling Association NEWS

uswa.jpg.5d95a85fc62a22bdaa41dd96698d75cf.jpg

More big news coming out of the USWA. With all the recent happenings in the AWA, Jerry Jarrett has worked a deal with Bill Watts to acquire the WCCW territory. The USWA will consist of both the former TNT and WCCW territories and will be broadcast every week on the USA Network. Jarrett said the TV shows would be moved to the Civic Auditorium in Knoxville TN. He feels this will give the USWA an updated look and feel. He's also excited to announce that occasional TV shows will be coming from the historic Sportatorium in Dallas. 

Jarrett's first order of business is to crown the first USWA Heavyweight Champion. He has decided that the final TNT champ Jerry Lawler will face the final WCCW champ Nick Bockwinkel in a winner take all unification match. 

Austin Idol will remain TV champ and Kerry Von Erich will remain Central States Champ. 

A tournament will crown the Central States Tag Team Champs.

The Brass Knuckles title will be retired. Since Carlos Colon was the champ, he will receive a guaranteed USWA title shot in the near future. 

Jarrett will determine the USWA Tag Team champs by setting up a match between the last AWA World champs, The Movement and the last AWA Southern tag champs, The Fabulous Ones.

The TNT tag titles will be retired. Dick Murdoch and Adrian Adonis were outraged by this decision. They felt they should of been in the title match but Jarrett explained the AWA titles had more history and said Adonis and Murdoch would get a future title shot. Murdoch responded by throwing his title on the ground and quitting. Adonis said he may or may not be back. 

Stay tuned as Lance Russell will bring you the USWA each and every week.

USWA Wrestling TV @ The Civic Auditorium, Knoxville TN 1-3-85

uswa.jpg.5d95a85fc62a22bdaa41dd96698d75cf.jpg

The intro is a montage of USWA wrestlers in action while Def Leppard's Rock Rock Til You Drop is playing. 

Lance: Hello everybody and happy new year! Welcome to the historic first episode of USWA wrestling here on the USA network. The USWA promises to bring you non stop action week in and week out. We have an outstanding show for you. You'll see Sgt. Slaughter taking on Boris Zhukov. Jerry Blackwell goes one on one with Hercules Ayala. Dream Machine takes on Mr. Wrestling 2. All that plus the Central States Champ Kerry Von Erich and a whole lot more. Before we get to the action, please welcome out the owner of the USWA, Jerry Jarrett. 

Jarrett comes out smiling and waves to the fans. 

Jarrett: Thank you Lance. I'm so very pleased the USWA is now firing on all cylinders. I have a big announcement. In 2 weeks at the Jackson Coliseum there will be two big matches to determine our USWA champions. First, the last holders of the TNT tag titles, the Fabulous Ones will take on the last holders of the AWA world tag titles, the Movement and the winners will be declared the USWA tag team champions. The main event will see the last WCCW champ Nick Bockwinkel take on the last TNT champ Jerry Lawler in a unification match for the USWA Heavyweight championship. History will be made in Jackson on January 18th.

Boos as Nick Bockwinkel walks out. Bock is wearing a suit and has the WCCW belt on his shoulder. He walks to the podium and looks out at the crowd with distain.

bockwinkel.jpg.dc4e52d5e7315d11b9084d15ece22014.jpg

Bock: Jerry Jarrett, with all due respect, I cannot believe you are actually going through with this sham. The entire wrestling world knows that I am the real undisputed champion. I dominated WCCW and simply put my record there says it all. Without any doubt, I stand here as the true champion. Jerry Lawler is a second rate peon and quite frankly I think you and him are in cahoots. You would love nothing more than for your golden boy to represent your promotion. A class act like Bill Dundee was a fighting champion but of course you made him defend the TNT title when he was injured and of course that scoundrel Lawler took advantage. Lawler, you should be ashamed of yourself. I'm asking you to be a man and come out here to hand over your title and forfeit our match. Bottom line is you simply don't deserve this opportunity. 

Massive cheers as Jerry Lawler comes out with the TNT strap on his shoulder. He looks around and nods at the fans. 

lawler.jpg.7202793afa6a4c006d2626dc2929d3ac.jpg

Lawler: Let me stop you right there Bockwinkel. In other words, stop talking! We are no strangers to each other and if memory serves I've come out on top more than once. But I'm not here to talk about the past. The USWA is the future of wrestling and I plan on being the champion and leading the USWA into a new era. I'm in this match because this here title says I deserve it. Oh and the next time you make accusations of me playing politics well like you say, quite simply I'll punch you in the mouth! 

Cheers as Lawler holds up his title and exits. 

Bock: Jerry Jarrett, I hope you didn't bet the bank on him because if you did, you'll be a broke man and I'll be running this place. 

Lance: Ok, wow the battle lines have been drawn. I for one cant wait for that big unification match up. Fans let's get to the action. 

 

The Grapplers vs. Sean and Sam Smith

The masked Grapplers dominate their opponents and the end comes when Grappler 1 hoists Sam up in a bearhug and Grappler 2 hits a clothesline from the middle ropes to get the easy pin!

Lee comes out in a black gi and kendo stick. McGhee is pumped up and ready to go. Competitive match as the action goes back and forth. Lee gets the advantage and works McGhee over with kicks, chops and choking. McGhee comes back with forearm uppercuts and a body slam.

There's a commotion in the crowd as Ron Slinker slowly circles the ring and observes the match.

 McGhee drops an elbow on Lee 1..2..Kick Out. Slinker grabs Lee's kendo stick and sets it on the apron then starts yelling up at McGhee. McGhee goes to the ropes and warns Slinker. Meanwhile Lee rolls over and grabs his kendo stick. McGhee turns around and Lee levels him with the stick. The Ref signals for the DQ. The bell is ringing but Lee goes on an onslaught with the kendo stick and just punishes McGhee. Lee smiles and exits the ring. Slinker goes over and whispers something to Lee and they leave together. HMMMMMMM.

Lance: What the heck? Tully Blanchard you lost a loser leaves town match to Curt Hennig a few months ago. What are you doing here? 

Tully: You hold on Lance! That was a TNT match and brother this is USWA (Laughs) which means I'm back baby so you and all these idiots can deal with that! As far as Curt Hennig goes. Well, remember the Christmas show? Remember when Baby Doll here clocked Curt Hennig (Laughs) well she did that for me (Laughs) Baby Doll, that was so beautiful. Now, I would love to have given Hennig another beating but that coward left town with his dear old dad. So it's time to move on. That dope Jerry Lawler was out here talking about the new era. Lawler! Hate to break it to you but you're looking at the new era. Tully Blanchard is here for gold and what I want brother I'm going to get! 

Lance: Unbelievable! Tully Blanchard is back along with Baby Doll. Talk about a dangerous pair. Back to the ring.

Boos as Ted and Jerry Oates walk out. 

Valiant: Just before Gene Anderson left the area, I made the deal of a lifetime with him. I bought the contracts of the Outstanding Oates Brothers. That's right! After I saw that beating they gave the Super Samoans on Christmas I just had to have them. They did that because they deserved a title shot and those filthy savages didn't. Lance, 1985 is going to be my year. Bet on it!

These two have had their issues recently and it shows tonight as this match never officially gets underway. Neither man makes it to the ring as they just have a hard hitting brawl all around it. Several prelim wrestlers have to come out and break it up. They break free a couple times and continue to punch away on each other. It's pure chaos as we go to the commercial. 

 

Commercial Break

Martel exits

Lance: Ok, that should be a fantastic match up. Let's go...wait a second, it seems Bill Dundee and the Dream Machine have something to say.

Boos as Dundee comes out with the Dream Machine. 

Dream: Mr. Wrestling 2 makes his return to the ring tonight huh? Listen up you masked imposter. There's only room for one masked wrestler here and that's me babay! Not only are you going down tonight but your mask comes off! 

Dundee: As you can see we're upset and rightfully so. I was cheated and robbed out of the TNT title by that backstabbing and gutless Jerry Lawler! I should be in that match with the great Nick Bockwinkel. Lawler doesn't stand a chance! So tonight Mr. Wrestling 2 is going to feel our wrath. 

dundee.jpg.13ef523972778f5994d1bfb498397407.jpg

Fergie: I told you to shut up! I went out and acquired a manager's license. Yea that's right! Then you know what I did? 

Lance: N...

Fergie: Once again, shut up! I went out and put together an unbeatable team. Focus your four eyes on Matt Borne and Gary Young because you're looking at the next tag team champions.

Mr. Wrestling 2 vs.The Dream Machine w/Bill Dundee 

1990558959_wrestling2.jpg.f161a8f0376aff8ad4dabba52505f575.jpg

For the past few months, the injured Mr. Wrestling 2 was guiding Jessie Barr as Mr. Wrestling 3. Barr has decided to venture up north. Mr. Wrestling 2 said he's fully heeled and is itching to get back in the ring. 

The fans are cheering as Mr. Wrestling 2 enters the ring. Boos as Dundee leads Dream Machine into the ring. The bell rings but Dundee is yelling and arguing with the Ref. While this is going on, the Dream Machine is loading something in his mask while the fans are screaming at the Ref. Mr. Wrestling 2 walks over and is telling Dundee to exit. Dundee waves his arms and walks to the outside. Wrestling 2 turns around and Dream Machine head butts him with his loaded mask. Wrestling 2 is knocked out as Dream drops an elbow 1..2..3! 

Massive boos.

Dundee hits the ring and holds up Mr. Wrestling 2. The fans are outraged as Dream Machine starts to pull off his mask. Now the fans are in riot mode. 

All of a sudden the Grapplers hit the ring and believe it or not the fans going wild for them as they punch away on Dream and Dundee. They swing Dream to the ropes and double clothesline him down. They hammer Dundee into the ropes and double clothesline him over the top. 

They go back and put the boots to Dream. The fans are up and cheering as they start to pull the mask off Dream. They punch and stomp Dream while they pull on the mask.

HUGE POP as they yank the mask off!!!!!!

USWA TV @ The Civic Auditorium, Knoxville TN 1-10-85

uswa.jpg.5d95a85fc62a22bdaa41dd96698d75cf.jpg

Highlights are shown from last week's show as the Grapplers unmask the Dream Machine revealing him to be Troy Graham! 

Lance Russell: Hello everybody and welcome to another edition of USWA Wrestling here on the USA Network. Big show lined up as Austin Idol will defend the Television Title against Rick Martel. Joe Savoldi takes on Roosevelt Jones of the Movement. Denny Brown goes one on one with Mark Fleming accompanied by Carl Fergie. Tully Blanchard along with Baby Doll will be in action and we'll be hearing from The Movement and the Fabulous Ones . All that and a whole lot more. Right off the bat I want to bring out the Grapplers.

It's surreal hearing the fans cheer for the Grapplers as they head to the podium.

Lance: You boys sure made history last week as you unmasked the Dream Machine. I'm sure you have a lot to say about that.

Grappler 1: Hey we don't like anybody and we'll put down any team that gets in our way! However we respect Mr. Wrestling 2, the man is a masked legend. There was no way in hell we were going to stand by and watch two gutless punks like Dundee and Dream Machine strip him of his mask. We did what we did and gave them a dose of their own medicine. So if Dundee and Graham want to do something about it, well we aint going anywhere!

Lance: Ok, there you have it. Well now would be a great time to bring up the upcoming Central States Tag Team Tournament that will be held on January 25th in Corpus Christi Texas. You boys will be apart of the 8 team one night tournament.

Grappler 2: We came here for titles and I want those other 7 teams to know, the Grapplers are walking out of the arena with those belts!

Lance: The Grapplers mean business. That will be a great night of action indeed. And of course don't forget about next week in Jackson. Huge unification night as Nick Bockwinkel and Jerry Lawler will face off for the USWA Title. Fans, let's go to the ring.

 

Super Samoans vs. Gary Williams and Todd Rooney

The fans cheer on the Samoans as they work over their opponents with high octane offense. The end comes when Sakalia puts down Rooney with a Samoan Drop then tags in Tui, who flies off the top ropes with a splash for the pin!

Samoans cut a promo about being in the Central States Tag Tournament and are elated to find out that they'll be facing the Oates Brothers in the first round. They talk about how the Oates costed them their title match on Christmas and will be out for blood at the tournament.

 

Commercial Break

 

"Jumping" Joe Savoldi vs. Roosevelt Jones w/Sonny KIng  

savoldi.jpg.dda79ff105d8c0fcd0d968f2184ebb79.jpgjones.jpg.e226daf61ed069701ee1481a92205daf.jpgking.jpg.056737f7d9da124e4efe68c8a4783746.jpg

Savoldi has impressed fans with his high flying offense and is looking to climb the ranks. Jones has been nothing but confident since joining the Movement and is now even more threatening with Sonny King in his corner.

Pretty good fast paced match that goes back and forth. Savoldi works Jones over with hip tosses, arm drags and dropkicks. The tide turns when King trips Savoldi and Jones capitalizes with a clothesline. Jones slams Savoldi and chokes away. Jones controls the match for a bit. Jones swings Savoldi to the ropes but misses a clothesline, Savoldi swings back and puts Jones down with a clothesline. Savoldi fires up and goes to town. Savoldi back drops Jones then climbs to the top rope. Jones staggers up and Savoldi nails him with a missile dropkick! Savoldi covers 1..2..Wait a minute! Shaska Whatley and Tiger Conway hit the ring and put the boots to Savoldi! 

The Ref calls for the DQ.

Jones staggers up and joins in as does King. They continue to beat down Savoldi. The fans roar as the Fabulous Ones hit the ring and clean house! 

The Movement regroup but KIng tells them to hold off. The Fabs help Savoldi but don't take their eyes off the Movement. 

 

Commercial Break 

 

Lance: Wow, things got crazy in a hurry. The Fabulous Ones helped Savoldi out of here. Ok, here comes the Movement. 

King: You shut your mouth Lance Russell! People better open their eyes and realize that we are a brotherhood and we have each others backs no matter what! Now, next week in Jackson, the so called Fabulous Ones are going to find out first hand what the Movement is all about! 

Whatley: That's right! We gonna whip those boys and take home the USWA tag titles! 

Conway: You boys haven't got a prayer! 

Lance: Ok, next week in Jackson it will be The Movement versus The Fabulous Ones for the USWA tag team titles. Back to the ring. 

 

The Naturals (Brian Adias and George Wells) vs. Trent Watkins and Lou Simms 

adias.jpg.f39f0f075c417a36da18c252f6afa4c7.jpgwells.jpg.d20cce11fdd9ab28b968e62f7f8b9638.jpg

Because of their tremendous athletic backgrounds, Adias and Wells have been dubbed the Naturals. 

They live up to their name as they gel really well and show off some solid chemistry. The end comes when Adias executes an airplane spin on Simms then tags in Wells, who finishes him off with a flying football tackle for the pin! 

The Naturals cut a promo on the upcoming Central States tag tournament and say their ready to take on all comers! 

 

Commercial Break (Adds for this week's house shows in Louisville KY and Hammond IN) 

 

"Downtown" Denny Brown vs. "The Technician" Mark Fleming w/"Cool" Carl Fergie 

 Last week Fergie announced he acquired a manager's license and introduced his tag team Bad Attitude (Matt Borne and Gary Young) Fergie has also enlisted the services of his old Solidarity buddy Fleming. 

Fleming gets control early thanks to Fergie distracting Denny. Fleming shows off his wrestling ability and executes a number of suplexes but cant put Denny away. Fleming misses a knee drop and Denny regroups. Denny comes back with some suplexes of his own but cant put Fleming away. Fleming rakes Denny's eyes and Denny stumbles back to the ropes. Fergie hops on the apron and holds Denny. Fleming charges with a flying high knee but Denny elbows Fergie in the gut and moves. Fleming nails Fergie and sends him flying. Denny rolls up Fleming 1..2..3! 

Big Pop! 

Denny rolls out of the ring and celebrates with the fans. 

 

Commercial Break

 

Lance: How about that! Denny Brown takes advantage and gets the win over Mark Fleming. 

Fleming helps Fergie to the podium then Fergie.

Fergie: (pushes Fleming away) Get your hands off me! Damn it! How could you embarrass me and lose that match? I manage winners and you my friend are far from it. As of right now, Mark Fleming is on his own. No room for losers, now get lost and let me hype up my team of Bad Attitude as they gear up to be Central States Tag champs. 

Fleming: Hold on Carl. I was trained by none other than Lou Thesz! Don't you ever call me a loser.

Fergie: Looooooser! Now beat it! 

Fleming: Ok, I'll tell you what. Why don't you get in the ring with me next week and we'll see who the loser is. 

The fans cheer.

Fergie: Well... now I'm focusing on managing but just to teach a loser like you a lesson, sure I'll put the boots on and do just that. 

Fleming: You better put your working boots on because you're in for a long day.

Lance: Ok, we have a match set for next week. I think Carl Fergie is in for quite a wrestling match. Back to the ring. 

 

Tully Blanchard w/Baby Doll vs. Vic Dutro

Man, Tully and Baby Doll really get heat tonight. Tully mostly just toys with his opponent before putting him out of his misery with the Slingshot Suplex for the easy pin. The fans boo as Tully and Baby Doll arrogantly walk to the podium. 

Lance: Fans, I have another big announcement. Jerry Jarrett has decided to add another title to the USWA. To honor our new territory in Texas, the USWA will add the Texas Title. On January 25th, the same night as the Central States Tag tournament, there will also be a battle royal and the winner will be declared the Texas Champion. Tully Blanchard, I understand you'll be in that battle royal. 

Tully: I said last week I was here to win gold and that's exactly what I'm going to do. You and all these idiots know my history in Texas so who better to represent Texas than yours truly. It will be a walk in the park. Nobody is conditioned like me and therefore nobody stands a chance. Time to go Baby Doll, I don't want to be here longer than I have to. 

Lance: (rolls his eyes) Fans we'll be right back

 

Commercial Break

 

Baron Von Raschke vs. William Hillman 

baron.jpg.7061aa72609aff001998272cf636d314.jpg

The fans boo as Baron just about breaks all the rules. While Baron is stomping away on Hillman, Ron Slinker appears at ringside and seems to like what he sees. We saw Slinker last week as he was scouting Tiger Chung Lee and Boris Zhukov. 

Baron finally ends the match as he clamps on the claw for the win. The fans boo as Slinker enters the ring and says something to Baron. Baron smiles and walks out with Slinker hmmmmmmm. 

slinker.jpg.25812a1ac1e9b8a3cd1815e525e0f883.jpg

 

Lance: Still not sure what Ron Slinker's intentions are but I'm sure we'll find out soon enough. Fans, listen to this blockbuster main event for next week's show. Jerry Lawler will team with Jerry Blackwell to take on Nick Bockwinkel and Hercules Ayala. Lot's of bad blood there. Also, Mr. Olympia makes his USWA debut and Sgt. Slaughter will be here. Should be a great show. Joining me now are the Fabulous Ones. 

Big Pop! 

Keirn: Movement, yea your good at the numbers game but when things even up, well I think we exposed you for the true cowards you are!

The fans have taken a liking to the hard hitting powerhouse team of Shaw and Peterson. They easily dismantle the Smith brothers. The end comes when DJ nails Sean with a flying shoulder tackle from the top rope then tags in Shaw, who finishes things off with a big splash! 

Lance mentions that Rolling Thunder will be facing the debuting team of Johnny Rich and Wendell Cooley known as the Regulators, this weekend in Louisville. Shaw and DJ say they're ready for the challenge and looking forward to it, then it's on to the Central States Tag Tournament.

TV Title Bout

Big match feel as Idol taunts Martel with the title before handing it over to the Ref. They have a good stare down and exchange some words. The bell rings and the match is on!

USWA @ The Hammond Civic Center, Hammond IN 1-11-85

The Naturals (Brian Adias /George Wells) vs. Bad Attitude (Matt Borne/Gary Young) w/"Cool" Carl Fergie

Solid opener as both teams are looking to rise the USWA rankings. The Naturals show off their athleticism and chemistry while Bad Attitude shows off their aggressiveness. Things turn into a pier six brawl and get crazy when Wells tackles Young through the ropes. The Ref is distracted by this, which allows Fergie to interfere and clock Adias from behind and allows Borne to hit a Northern Lights suplex for the win.  

Winners of the Match- Bad Attitude

 

Larry Zbyszko vs. Mr. Olympia 

 Neither wrestler has made their USWA TV debut yet but the fans are defiantly familiar with both men. Larry really pisses off the fans as he spends the first few minutes of the match on the outside stalling. The fans cheer as Olympia finally catches him on the outside and goes to town before hurling him back in the ring. Olympia controls for awhile until a low mule kick by Larry turns the tide. Larry spends just as much time yelling at the fans as he does working over Olympia. Olympia makes a comeback and hits a big knee lift just as the bell rings signaling a draw. Olympia is disappointed but at least Larry is still laid out. 

Official Ruling- A 15 minute Draw

 

The Fabulous Ones and "Jumping" Joe Savoldi vs. The Movement (Whatley/Conway/Jones) w/Sonny KIng 

This one is a wild one and is all over the place. The poor Ref is earning is money here. At one point the Fabs and Savoldi hit dropkicks and send the Movement through the ropes. Fabs and Savoldi are on fire as they take it to the Movement. Movement make a comeback and really work Lane over in the corner. Lane eventually makes the hot tag to Keirn and he cleans house. Keirn tags in Savoldi and he continues to keep things going until Whatley swings him in the corner and Savoldi takes a beating by all 3 men and also KIng.

"To show what a fighting champion I am. I am willing to put the real title on the line against you. Blackwell, you're credible enough for a shot, nowhere in my league but credible" 

Bock hands over the mic and raises the WCCW title as the fans boo. The Ref doesn't hold up the title as the announcer announces it's no longer recognized. Bock throws a fit and berates both the Ref and the announcer. The Ref quickly signals for the bell but Bock isn't done yelling at him.

Low key here, even if it's a draw, I can chalk it as a big moral victory for Mr. Olympia against Larry Zbyszko. If you can hold your own the way he did with Larry Z, that's nothing to sneeze about. Gonna make a bold statement that Olympia will be in the Central States title picture in no time!

Jerry "The KIng" Lawler vs. "Superstar" Bill Dundee

This is a rivalry that will probably never end. These guys traded the TNT title and Lawler came out as the last holder of that title. Lawler faces Bockwinkel next week for the USWA title but tonight Dundee stands in his way.

uswa.jpg.5d95a85fc62a22bdaa41dd96698d75cf.jpg

Lance Russell: Hello everybody and welcome to another edition of USWA Wrestling here on the USA Network. So much to talk about. We have a blockbuster of a main event as Jerry Lawler and Jerry Blackwell will take on Nick Bockwinkel and Hercules Ayala. As you all know, tomorrow night in Jackson, Lawler and Bockwinkel will face off for the USWA Title. Also tonight, Mark Fleming will take on Carl Fergie in a special challenge match. Sgt. Slaughter faces Killer Brooks. Johnny Valiant's main man Steve Regal will take on Denny Brown. Mr. Olympia makes his televised debut and the Central States Champ Kerry Von Erich will be in action. 

I have some sad news to report. The Fabulous Ones have left the territory. During the last year of TNT, the Fabulous Ones had a great 6 month reign as champions then recaptured the titles to become the last TNT tag champions. On behalf of USWA we want to thank the Fabulous Ones for all their hard work and wish them the best of luck. The Fabs were scheduled to face The Movement in Jackson to determine the USWA tag team champions. So, tonight Jerry Jarrett has signed a match between the Grapplers and Super Samoans and the winners will face the Movement for the USWA tag titles tomorrow night in Jackson. Ok let's get to the ring for that big match up. 

 

Winners face the Movement for the USWA Tag Titles

The Grapplers vs. The Super Samoans 

Both teams want that title shot and it shows as the match is hard hitting and fierce. Grapplers take control and work over Tui. They put him down with a double back elbow smash and follow with a double elbow drop. Tui shows off his toughness as the Grapplers cant finish him off. Tui finally makes the tag to Sakalia and Sakalia works over Grappler 2 with thrusts and kicks. Grappler 2 tags in Grappler 1 but Grappler 1 is back dropped by Sakalia. Sakalia follows with a knee drop then hoists Grappler 1 up and executes a Samoan Drop 1..2..Grappler 1 barely gets his shoulder up. Sakalia tags in Tui and they hit a double slam. Tui swings off the ropes and hits a leg drop 1..2..Kick Out. Tui works over Grappler 2 then tags in Sakalia. Sakalia hits a suplex then goes to the top rope and comes down with a flying elbow but Grappler 1 moves, rolls over and tags in Grappler 2. Grappler 2 slams Sakalia then comes off the middle ropes with a knee drop 1..2..Kick Out. Grappler 2 swings Sakalia to the ropes and clotheslines him. Grappler 2 tags in Grappler 1. They double suplex Sakalia 1..2..Tui breaks it. Grappler 2 sends Tui flying with a running forearm blast. Grappler 2 hoists Sakalia up in a bearhug as Grappler 1 comes off the middle ropes with a diving clothesline 1..2..3! 

After a minute, Tui helps Sakalia up. Both teams stare at each other. The Grapplers extend their hands and the fans cheer as both teams shake hands. Wow, The Grapplers are changing for the better. Unbelievable. 

 

Commercial Break 

 

Lance: Ok, the Grapplers will face the Movement in Jackson for the USWA tag titles. Let me get a word with the Grapplers.

The Grapplers said they don't like anybody but that doesn't mean they don't have some respect for some people and tonight the Super Samoans got their respect. They say they cant say the same for the Movement and if the Movement want to break some rules well the Grapplers have been known to do that as well. 

 

"Downtown" Denny Brown vs. "Mr. Electricity" Steve Regal w/Johnny Valiant 

Action packed back and forth match up as these guys trade move for move. Denny gets the upper hand and goes to work as he hip tosses Regal over and follows with a scoop slam and a vertical suplex 1..2..Valiant puts Regal's foot on the rope. Denny gets up and goes to the ropes and warns Valiant. Valiant distracts him long enough for Regal to get up and nail Denny from behind with a high knee. Regal hoists up Denny and executes a Northern Lights Suplex 1..2..3! 

The fans boo as Regal rolls out of the ring and Valiant raises his arm. They head to the podium. 

 

Lance: Well Regal gets the win but he can thank his manager for that one.

Valiant: Whoa hold on a minute Lance. Regal won that match on pure athleticism and ability. Now, there seems to be a new TV champion running around name Rick Martel. Listen up Ricky boy, Mr. Electricity is coming after you and the title. Get ready!  

Lance: Valiant and Regal make the challenge to TV champ Rick Martel. Before we go to a commercial, here's some pre recoded comments from The Movement.

Sonny King: Tomorrow night in Jackson will be a glorious night indeed. My man Roosevelt Jones finally gets his due and will beat that Texas pretty boy punk Kerry Von Erich for the Central States Title! Next, my boys Shaska and Conway. These guys are so bad that the Fabulous Ones skipped town because they were so scared. There's no denying, you're looking at the baddest team in wrestling. Those USWA tag titles are ours! 

 

Commercial Break 

 

Sgt. Slaughter vs. Killer Brooks w/Ron Slinker 

It appears Slinker has formed an alliance with Brooks as he's out here with him. The fans go wild as Slaughter enters the ring and sends a warning to Slinker. Slinker and Brooks are yelling and pointing at Slaughter. As soon as the bell rings Slaughter clotheslines both men over the top rope. Slaughter goes to the outside and hurls Brooks back in the ring. Slaughter swings Brooks to the ropes and clamps on the Cobra Clutch! All of a sudden Tiger Chung Lee, Boris Zhukov and Baron Von Raschke hit the ring and ambush Slaughter! 

The Ref signals for the DQ.

They beat down Slaughter then hold him as Slinker gets in the ring and slaps Slaughter. They continue to beat down Slaughter until Baron clamps on the claw! Baron wrenches away as Slaughter is on his back. Lee grabs his kendo stick and hits away on Slaughter's ribs. Brooks and Boris take turns stomping on Slaughter. Slinker signals the men and they exit the ring and head to the podium. 

Slinker: Listen up! I have spent a lot of time piecing together a unit. Every unit needs a captain so you're looking at Captain Ron Slinker. Boris and Baron will be the next Central States Tag Champs because they're a damn cohesive unit. Killer Brooks is the henchman and protector of the unit. As everybody knows I'm a legit black belt but Tiger Chung Lee's martial arts skills are second to none. All of us together will be an unstoppable unit! Sgt. Slaughter just found that out! 

Lance: Ok, it appears Ron Slinker has made is intentions known. A very dangerous unit indeed but they better be ready for a war when Slaughter comes for them.

 

Commercial Break

 

Footage from the Louisville Gardens as Rolling Thunder (DJ Peterson and Mike Shaw) and The Regulators (Wendell Cooley and Johnny Rich) battle to a draw. After the match, Rolling Thunder brutally assault The Regulators. 

Lance: After watching that despicable act, I have some questions for these men. 

Boos as Rolling Thunder walk out. 

Lance: Just what was that all about? I mean, these fans really believed in you and The Regulators fought a hard clean match. There was no call for that. Come on. 

DJ: Thanks to my partner, I have seen the light. Tell em Mike. 

Shaw: I simply told DJ that these fans will do nothing but hold us back. Do we want titles or do we want to cater to these ungrateful idiots? I mean what have they really done to help us? That's right...Nothing! Now we can do what we were meant to do and that's destroy any team that gets in our way! Regulators! You got in our way! Next up is the Central States tag tournament. 

DJ: And that means the titles are as good as ours! Nobody will stop us! And we mean nobody! 

Lance: I guess in their minds that all makes sense. That killer instinct along with their power could be devastating. That Central States tag tournament happens next week in Corpus Christi. I've been informed that the High Flyers are coming in to participate in the tournament. Also that night will be the big battle royal to crown our Texas State Champion. Should be a great night of action. Back to the ring. 

 

Mr. Olympia vs. Trent Watkins

olympia.jpg.44d6d011fa6690360de2df09f8ed805c.jpg

Olympia works over Trent with body slams, knee drops and elbow drops. After a good showcase, Olympia wins the match with a Sleeper. Olympia slaps hands with the fans then heads to the podium. 

Mr. Olympia cuts a promo and says he'll be in the upcoming battle royal and plans on walking out with the Texas State Title! 

 

Commercial Break 

 

Special Challenge Match

"The Technician" Mark Fleming vs. "Cool" Carl Fergie

Last week Denny Brown defeated Fleming. Afterwards Fergie severed his alliance with Fleming and called him a loser. Fleming mentioned his training with Lou Thesz and says he's not a loser and challenged Fergie. 

Fergie's mouth is running non stop as he's constantly yelling at Fleming. Unfortunately for Fergie, his mouth isn't as good as his wrestling skills tonight. Fleming pulls out the amateur skills as he just picks Fergie apart. Fergie comes back with some rulebreaking but it's short lived as Fleming is fired up tonight. Fleming hits a gut wrench suplex followed by a double arm suplex followed by a vertical suplex. Fleming hoists Fergie up and hits a Fireman's Carry slam for the decisive 1..2..3! 

The fans cheer as Fleming gets a most satisfying victory.

Commercial Break 

 

Lance: Ok, Carl Fergie has joined me. Tough loss.

Fergie: (Still shaken up) Oh wow big deal, he beat a retired wrestler now manager. I could beat him any time if I wanted but I don't want to because all my focus is on my team Bad Attitude and the Central States tag titles. Just one week to go until Matt Borne and Gary Young raise those titles high in the air. 

Lance: There you have it from Carl Fergie. Back to the ring for another USWA debut. 

 

"Timekeeper" Mike George vs. Vic Dutro 

George is impressive in his debut as the veteran shows off his skills. George finishes off Dutro with a running shoulder breaker for the pin. George gives the fans a wave and heads to the podium. 

Mike.jpg.62eca3fd399acbcc92b2cd83cc982258.jpg

 

Lance: Welcome to the USWA Mike George. I know you have an impressive resume of titles and I'm looking forward to watching more of you in action. 

Mike: Thank you very much Lance. I've...

Massive boos as Larry Zbyszko walks out! 

Lance: Whoa hold on a minute! Larry Zbyszko what are you doing out here?

789070312_larryz.jpg.6903c6fe9fbdec655cf4483b5d4fb3a9.jpg

Larry: You know, I was suppose to make my televised debut next week but I just couldn't take it anymore. I just couldn't sit back and watch a spudhead like this guy get precious air time. I heard some ridiculous story that you got the timekeeper name because you would successfully predict your match times. Yea, you predicted the times of your defeats. I mean it sickens me to even be out here with a guy who's not even close to being in my league. I've beaten the best the world has to offer while this guy predicts the times of his losses.  

George: Can you do us all a favor and shut your mouth! If you want a match with me all you have to do is ask. 

Larry: You're not qualified to be in the ring with me but I guess I could use a tune up. Matter a fact, I'll guarantee you and all these spudheads that I can beat you in less than 5 minutes. What do you say timekeeper?

Larry puts his finger on Mike's chest and nudges him. 

The fans go wild as Mike slaps Larry across the face!!! 

Mike: Sounds good to me. 

Lance: (smiling) We'll be right back 

Larry: (holding his face) Did you see that cowardly cheap shot! 

 

Commercial Break 

 

Central States Champ Kerry Von Erich vs. Gary Williams 

Of course Kerry is way over with the fans as they cheer every move. Kerry lifts Williams over his head for a military press/slam. Williams staggers up and Kerry puts him down with the discuss punch for the win! 

Kerry is fired up and says he's more than ready for his Central States title defense in Jackson against Roosevelt Jones of The Movement! 

 

Commercial Break

 

Main Event 

Jerry "The King" Lawler and "Crusher" Jerry Blackwell vs. Nick Bockwinkel and Hercules Ayala

Lawler and Bock will wrestle for the USWA title tomorrow night in Jackson. Blackwell and Ayala have been in some wild brawls so there's a lot of heat in this match.

Bock plays mind games and spends most of the time avoiding and antagonizing Lawler. Ayala and Blackwell just hammer away on each other. Both men knock each other back and tag in their partners. Bock tries to stall but Lawler goes at him and hip tosses him over. Bock gets up and Lawler tags him with several Memphis style punches. Lawler winds up and punches Bock to the corner.

The Grapplers vs. The Movement w/Sonny KIng

The Movement are in this match because they were the last reigning AWA World Champs (of course they were stripped of the titles but King says his men were never beaten).

The Grapplers double clothesline Shaska over the top rope. They swing Conway to the ropes and double clothesline him down. Grappler 1 hoists Conway up as Grappler 2 nails him with a clothesline from the top rope 1..2..3!!! 

Huge Pop! 

The Movement slowly regroup and King leads them out.

The fans are cheering as the Ref hands the Grapplers the USWA tag titles. The Grapplers hold them high.

Wait a minute. WHAM!!! 

Dream Machine Troy Graham (who was unmasked on national TV by the Grapplers) and The Universal Heartthrob Austin Idol hit the ring and attack the Grapplers. They beat them down. Graham and Idol pick up the tag belts and start pounding down on the Grapplers! Security hits the ring. Idol and Graham leave the ring with the titles as the fans throw garbage at them. 

Winners of the Match and new USWA Tag Team Champs- The Grapplers

Both participants are in the ring. Lawler is wearing the TNT title and Bock is wearing the WCCW title. They have a stare down and exchange some words. They hand the titles over.

Massive boos! 

Bock is still reeling. The Ref helps him sit up. Bock sits in the corner as the Ref hands him the USWA title. Bock grimaces and is barley able to hold the title up but somehow manages a slight and arrogant grin. 

 

Winner of the Match and USWA Champion- Nick Bockwinkel!

The only way the finish of the main event would've gotten more heat than it did here was it actually happened in Memphis instead of Jackson.  Adrian Adonis as Bock's partner in crime will be fun to follow. I'm interested to see how far you can go with this, considering that I've mostly seen the Adorable version of Adonis my whole life and less of what he did with Jesse Ventura and Dick Murdoch when they were totally badasses.

- Slinker always rated high in the 'scummy' meter

- Big win for The Naturals, as they rise up the tag team rankings. 

- Zybysko gets a solid win over Mike George

- Big title defense for Von Erich, and he gets the tough win. 

- Let's all say goodbye to Blackwell, as he hopefully moves on to bigger and better things. Ayala is continuing to get a decent push here. 

- Big win for The Grapplers, but they immediately have new challengers with Idol & Troy Graham. 

- Bockwinkel merges the title, and now Lawler has a new title to chase after. 

Really solid show and looking forward to how the USWA continues.

Sorry for falling a little behind.  

The TV show was packed full of craziness

The Grapplers gave the only reason they could be babyfaces as they did it to protect the Masked legend... Mr. Wrestling II.... Very creative!

So happy the Movement is back and strong as ever.   That was one of the best angles we had in 1984!

Carl Fergie is moving up the ranks of heels in this game and now he is going after the Lou Thesz trained Fleming.... interesting but my money is on Fergie as he just keeps moving on no matter what happens to him.

Tully and Baby Doll.... must always stay focused here but that's easy as BD was easy to focus on

Idol-Martel.... Idol could do it all on the mic and Martel could do it all in the ring... this is going to be HOT

What is Ron Slinker doing... seems like he is getting an Evil Bunch together!  Keep an eye on this as you are the master of the MId-Card

Will catch up on the House Shows later today... Great job

First... On to Jackson

Like seeing the House Show recaps here as we really see your pecking order

Like Ron Slinker's role here.  He is moving up the ladder and soon might be on par with Carl Fergie as a midcard heel with mega heat!

Crusher vs Ayala would have been a great one to see

Like VonErich staying with the belt... How far can he go without Fritz

Great work from TV to House show as we see first see the Grapplers take out Dream Machine and unmask him then they take out the Movement only for Dream and Idol to come out for revenge!  Really well booked.

Well Lawler found out that this is not Memphis anymore!  Bock with help from Adonis is in control of USWA!

USWA TV @ The Civic Auditorium, Knoxville TN 1-24-85

uswa.jpg.5d95a85fc62a22bdaa41dd96698d75cf.jpg

Highlights from Jackson are shown as Adrian Adonis interferes in the Bockwinkel/Lawler match. Adonis hits Lawler with a chair then DDT's him on the chair. Adonis sets Bock on top of Lawler for the pin. Bockwinkel is the USWA champion! 

The Grapplers defeat The Movement to become the USWA tag team champs! Afterwards Troy Graham and Austin Idol attack the Grapplers and leave with their titles. 

 

Lance Russell: Hello again everybody and welcome to another edition of USWA wrestling here on the USA Network. So much going on, so lets get right to it. Please welcome out the USWA promoter Jerry Jarrett. Jerry, I know you have something to say so the time is yours. 

Jarrett: Thank you Lance, right now I would like to ask the USWA champion Nick Bockwinkel to come out. 

Boos as Bock arrogantly walks out wearing a suit and sporting the USWA title on his shoulder. 

Jarrett: Last week was a historic night in the USWA as we crowned the first USWA champion. I was hoping for a clean victory but things didn't turn out that way. I should strip you of that title. Just why was Adonis out there? This isn't the first time you've relied on interference. I want you to know that those shenanigans will not be tolerated especially by our champion. What do you have to say for yourself? 

Bock grins then looks down. More boos as Adrian Adonis comes out. 

Adonis: (Looks at Jarrett) Turn off the interrogation light inspector. Mr. Bockwinkel never asked for my assistance. I acted alone and I'll tell you why. Jerry Jarrett, you play favorites and I for one am damn tired of it! You forced Dick Murdoch and myself to retire the TNT tag titles, fine but you didn't even give us a rightful spot to wrestle for the USWA tag titles. Murdoch left the territory and I was going to do the same but then I thought of something better. There was no way in hell I was going to let your precious golden boy Lawler walk out of Jackson with the USWA title. And I made damn sure he didn't! Lawler doesn't deserve that title. Nick Bockwinkel is a class act and that's why he's standing here with the title. Now everything is right in the USWA and if that gutter rat Lawler wants to do something about it, well I aint going anywhere! 

Adonis shakes Bock's hand and congratulates him. 

Bock: Mr. Adonis is a very admirable and honest man. The world needs more men like him. Jerry Jarrett, there you have it. 

Jarrett: The Ref made the count and the decision will remain but I'll be watching you Nick. As for you Adrian. Jerry Lawler called me from the hospital and demanded a match with you. When he's healthy he will get that match. 

Jarrett exits. Adonis doesn't seem to care as he follows.

Bock: Now that that's all cleared up. The reason I'm wearing the USWA title is because of my ability, cunning, athleticism, sheer guts and most of all my wrestling skills. Jerry Lawler just doesn't match up to any of that. I'm at the top of the mountain where I belong and I'm ready for all challengers. Good day Mr. Russell. 

bockwinkel.jpg.dc4e52d5e7315d11b9084d15ece22014.jpg

Lance: Ok, wow that was a lot to digest. I'll be speaking with Bockwinkel's next challenger later on. Fans, don't forget, tomorrow night at the Corpus Christi Convention Center there will be an 8 team tournament to crown the Central States tag team champs. Also on that card, there will be a battle royal to determine the Texas State Champ. Let's go to the ring.

 

Tully Blanchard w/Baby Doll vs. Vic Dutro 

Tully dominates and even holds Dutro by the ropes so Baby Doll can slap him. Tully finally finishes Dutro off with the Slingshot Suplex for the easy pin. 

Tully cuts a promo and says the battle royal is just a formality because he's walking out the Texas State Champion! 

 

Commercial Break 

 

Oates Outstanding w/Johnny Valiant vs. Sam and Sean Smith 

oates.png.b4e838cfb24d6d3edc57ec29ba5d6d39.png

The Oates look impressive as they tune up for the tournament. Jerry puts Sam in a hammerlock and slams him down then holds the arm as he tags in Ted. Ted comes off the ropes with a knee to the arm and covers 1..2..3! 

Boos as Steve Regal joins them at the podium. 

Valiant: Lance baby! Did you just see that wrestling clinic the Oates Outstanding displayed? No question about it, you're looking at the next Central States tag champs. Speaking of champs, next week Ricky Boy Martel is going to lose his TV title because he faces Mr. Electricity in a TV title bout. 

Regal: Ricky Boy! I've been overlooked long enough, brother your TV title is mine! 

 

Commercial Break 

 

Lance: Fans, I have some news regarding tomorrow's tournament. The High Flyers were suppose to compete but due to previous booking commitments they will not be able to participate. However we do have a substitute team and they're in the ring. Boy do I have some questions for them after their match.

 

Bob DellaSerra and Gino Brito Jr. vs. Trent Watkins and Ray Royce 

This very unusual pairing surprisingly are gelling well as they send Royce up and over with a double back drop. Gino executes a hanging suplex and tags in Bob. Bob hoists Royce on his shoulders and hits a fireman's carry slam for the pin!

Lance: Gentleman,  I have to say I'm very surprised you're teaming up. Back in TNT you guys were on opposite sides and really going at it. I assume you've made amends? 

Gino: Exactly. Bob and I both live in Montreal and one day we bumped into each other. After an uneasy moment we got to talking and one thing's for sure we both love Montreal and we both love wrestling. Why not put our petty differences aside, embrace our culture and team up. 

Bob: We came to an agreement and here we are. You know we believe in Montreal's symbol and were calling ourselves the Coat of Arms. 

Boos as Ron Slinker leads out The Legion (Boris Zhukov and Baron Von Raschke). 

Slinker: Coat of Arms? That's your symbol? I know about symbols because I'm a black belt. I don't care what your symbol is because The Legion here is going to win the tournament! The Legion were set to face the High Flyers in the opening round and when the High Flyers found that out, they withdrew. So now you jackasses get to suffer a most humiliating defeat before you even get started. So why don't you boys just go back to Toronto and save yourselves the embarrassment. 

Brito and DellaSerra step closer but The Legion step in. Security rushes out before tempers flare. 

 

Commercial Break 

 

TV Champ Rick Martel vs. Gary Williams 

Martel looks great tonight as he simply outclasses Williams. Martel wins the match with a flying body press. 

Martel cuts a promo and says he's going to be a fighting TV champion and looks forward to his match with Regal next week. The fans cheer as Martel holds up the TV title. Martel turns around to walk away and WHAM! 

Regal superkicks him down! 

Valiant picks up the TV title and hands it to Regal. The fans boo as Regal smiles and holds it up then drops it on Martel. 

 

Commercial Break 

 

Bad Attitude (Matt Borne/Gary Young) W/ "Cool" Carl Fergie vs. William Hillman and Todd Rooney

Bad Attitude work over their opponents as Fergie cheers them on. Bad Attitude execute a double rib breaker to get the pin! 

Fergie cuts a promo and says next week on TV will be a glorious one because Bad Attitude will out here with the Central States titles! 

 

Lance: Ok, all the top teams will be gunning for those titles tomorrow night....

Boos as Sonny King leads out the Movement.

King: Here we go again! New territory same story! Everybody in Jackson saw that the illegal Grappler made the pin. The Movement was cheated and does Jarrett say anything about it? Hell No he didn't! This isn't over! However I do have some good news to share. Tomorrow night in Corpus Christi, Kerry Von Erich was set to  defend his Central States title against Roosevelt Jones but unfortunately Roosevelt is injured so now Kerry will defend against either Whatley or Conway. That's right, which ever one the Movement wants. That punk Von Erich can kiss his title goodbye! Jarrett! You owe the Movement and brother we will collect. 

 

Commercial Break 

 

Hercules Ayala vs. Paul Glader 

ayala.jpg.c5833d3387eef59bc5dd45003733e725.jpg

Ayala destroys Glader then clamps on the bearhug, rams him into the turnbuckles and belly to belly suplexes him over for the pin! Ayala picks up Glader by the hair and hurls him over the top rope then goes to the podium.

Ayala: Jerry Blackwell! You messed with me and now you're gone! Let that be a message to all those in the battle royal! I'm coming and I'm winning the Texas Title! 

Lance: Wow, he's more intense than ever. Ayala will be in the big Texas Title battle royal tomorrow night. 

 

Commercial Break 

 

Lance: Fans, we were suppose to see Wendell Cooley and Johnny Rich in tag action but I understand Wendell has some information to share. 

Wendell: Lance, Johnny and I were really looking forward to making our USWA televised debut tonight as we were to tune up for the tournament. I'm not sure where Johnny is and I'm trying to get a hold of him. I know nothing will keep him away from the tournament and I know he'll be there tomorrow night. We haven't forgotten what Rolling Thunder did to us and we have them in the first round. Don't worry, Johnny Rich will be there! 

Lance: Well I hope Johnny Rich is ok and I'm sure wild horses couldn't keep him away from the tournament. Ok, well I think now is a good time to bring out the number one contender to the USWA title, please welcome out Carlos Colon. 

colon.jpg.df5c80283fd3edef392a672cd9d7edea.jpg

Cheers as Colon pumps his fist to the fans. 

Colon: Lance, I cant tell you how happy I am to be receiving a shot at the USWA title! I've worked hard for this opportunity and believe me I'll make the most of it! 

 

Commercial Break 

 

Scott McGhee vs. Artie Wheeler 

McGhee will be in the Texas Title battle royal. He looks fired up tonight as he swings Wheeler into the corner and follows with a running uppercut. McGhee grabs Wheeler, spins him around and hits a German Suplex for the pin! 

McGhee celebrates with the fans but from behind Tiger Chung Lee hits McGhee with his kendo stick! Lee hits McGhee several times with the kendo stick before leaving. 

Lance: It's obvious the issues between McGhee and Lee aren't over. Both men will be in the battle royal and I'm sure will cross paths. 

 

Commercial Break

 

Boos as "Dream Machine" Troy Graham and "The Universal Heartthrob" Austin Idol are standing at the podium with the USWA Tag Titles. 

troy.jpg.04067da456e5eb63c7eb3f4ca17b170f.jpgidol.jpg.034390abaf1a4cd657e913366305a351.jpg

Lance: You know those belong to the Grapplers, right? 

Idol: Shut up Russell! My main man Graham has something to say.

Graham: Did those masked jerk offs think they were going to unmask me on national TV and get away with it? Did they honestly think I wouldn't be looking for some payback? Well if they did then they're stupider than I thought. They took my mask and we took their titles! These here titles are ours! You're looking at the most charismatic and talented team in wrestling. 

Idol: Darling he's so right. 

Jerry Jarrett walks out.

Jarrett: You're not the champs. Those titles belong to the Grapplers now hand them over or both of you are suspended. It's that simple. 

Graham: Why should we? They started it and we finished it! 

Jarrett: Hand them over now or start walking. 

Idol: Relax baby, he can have them, don't worry we'll get them back in a flash.

Graham: Yea you're right babay. Listen up Jarrett we want a title match with those ugly Grapplers!

Jarrett: Funny, that's exactly what the Grapplers want. You all will get that match.

Idol and Graham smile then  drop the titles on the ground and leave. 

 

Commercial Break

Lance: Sgt. Slaughter is back. Last week Slinker and his unit did a number on Slaughter but I think...

Nice use of the TV show to hype up the house show in Corpus Christi.  By the way, that is a great card for Corpus Christi.

Thought Adonis just coming out and saying he helped Bock was cool and sets up Lawler vs Adonis down the road.  This allows you time, even in Memphis, where Lawler doesn't need to be the champ or the challenger.

Valiant is such a slime ball that he is getting better and better at drawing heat on your shows!  He is one to watch.  

Regal vs Martel will be fun as they both have a lot of in-ring talent.  

Sarge as a fan favorite is a perfect choice to go after Slinker and his band of misfits.  This has potential to be an Army vs Army feud that could go on and on... Looking forward to see who joins Slaughter in this
