If Adrian Street wasn't looking for attention before, he definitely got Bobby Jaggers' now. That Bullrope Match won't be pretty at all. That card in San Antonio is loaded!

Fantastic edition of TNT television!

Love the set up for Regal/McGraw with both guys getting wins, Regal talking shit and McGraw coming out, then Regal going for the cheap shot but McGraw knowing it was coming and knocking him on his ass. Classic Stuff, I love it!!

I am so glad we made the deal for Wells, as you are getting so much more out of him than I ever would have. I am looking forward to seeing the clash with Atlas.

Axe/Robinson as the bad ass old guys is awesome. The Ratymus group is a fantastic heel threat for the company, and while I don't think Dream Machine poses much threat to Tully, the build up is solid.

Good lord, that card for the 6th is stacked!  Funk/Bockwinkel is a dream match for me, I can't wait!!

I like giving random mid-card guys a title shot as well. It keeps things fresh and it shows the audience that anyone can be a threat. I think Santana is perfect for this area. In Georgia, he had a hard time fitting in, so I'm glad that I sent Tito here.

TNT Wrestling TV @ The Roane Fieldhouse, Memphis TN 3-29-84

TNT.jpg

Footage is shown of Hulk Hogan defeating Jerry Lawler for the AWA World Championship. 

 

Lance: Hello wrestling fans, Lance Russell here and what a program we have lined up for you as we head into our big card at the Hemisfair Arena next Friday night. Tonight you will see two blockbuster tag team matches. TNT Champ Nick Bockwinkel teams with Harley Race as they take on Hercules Ayala and Terry Funk. Also TV champ Tully Blanchard teams with Adrian Street and they will face the Dream Machine and Bobby Jaggers. You will also see Rick McGraw battle Steve Regal with the winner facing the Dynamite Kid next Friday for the Light Heavyweight title. 

Well fans, you saw at the top of the program, Hulk Hogan has regained the AWA World Title. It breaks my heart to say this but please welcome out the former AWA champion, the King Jerry Lawler. 

The fans give Lawler a rousing ovation. He pauses to show his appreciation. 

Lawler: Lance, I have to admit, I'm not in the best spirits right now but being here in Memphis in front of all these great fans sure does help. (Big Pop) Now that the King is back in Memphis I'm ready to get back on track and....

Huge boos as Jimmy Hart makes his way out.

Hart: Oh boo hoo, the great Jerry Lawler loses the AWA title and these idiots still cheer this loser. Lawler, I'm sick and tired of you calling yourself the king of Memphis. Baby you're not the King. The true king is here and he's right behind you! 

WHAM!!!!!

Lance: Oh no! 

A guitar shatters over the back of Lawler's head! The camera pans up and it's the Honkytonk Man Wayne Ferris! 

Hart: HAHAHAHA! Ladies and gentleman, the real King of Memphis, the Honkytonk Man!

Lance: I cant believe what we just saw. Jerry Lawler was unconscious and had to be carried out on a stretcher. I hope to give you an update on his condition soon. Jimmy Hart and the Honkytonk Man were escorted out of here by security. Unbelievable. Well, lets go to the ring. 

 

Steve O vs. Kent Jenkins

Steve O hits a series of drop kicks and scoop slams then finishes Jenkins off with a Russian Leg sweep for the pin! The fans cheer as Steve O heads to the podium. 

 

Lance: Steve, last week you and Cocoa Samoa were involved in a tag match with Ratamyus and Cuban Assassin. Be warned this footage is quite graphic. Here's what happened.

Footage is shown of Ratamyus hitting Cocoa with a wooden chair then taking a piece of the chair and digging it in Cocoa's forehead. 

Lance: I received word from Jerry Jarrett that Ratamyus has been suspended for his actions and Steve you have been granted a match with Cuban Assassin next Friday in the Hemisfair Arena. 

Steve: That was a sickening act and Cuban Assassin played a big part in that. Cuban Assassin! You and I have unfinished business. Let's see how tough you are without your insane partner around. Next Friday, you're all mine!

The Nightmares say they're better looking, better athletes and down right better wrestlers then the Foolish Ones!

That Hemisfair show is STACKED! Perfect episode of TV to build to it, touching on all the feuds and setting up the bouts with other bouts. Great stuff.

Looking forward to Lawler and Honky, that is bound to get bloody!

Still super excited for Bockwinkel and Funk, what a match that would be.

Oh and the family feud begins!!!! Honky Tonk with the guitar shot.  If you have never seen it, search the Tupelpo Concession Stand fight.... awesome.

I am enjoying the resurgence of Master G!

Miss Linda is causing havoc... always fun when a female played a major role in the mid 80's!

Nice use of Regal and McGraw to give the Light HW title a little attention.

Nice role here for Stasiak as his in-ring career is winding down/  Decimation is ringing up quickly.

Can't wait for the big show in the Hemisfair Arena

Great card that didn't disappoint!

Nice debut for Spivey here....I think he should do well here.

Bobby Jaggers gets the best of Adrian Street here....but I feel he hasn't heard the last of the Exotic one.

I love Harley Race but I was really pulling Ayala here....hopefully he will find success in TNT in soon.

Nightmares retain over the Fabs with help from Honky! I don't think the Fabs will take this lying down!

FUNK WINS THE TITLE!! I love it....Bock makes for a great champion but I'm super excited to see where things go with the Funker as champion!

Funk and Bockwinkel deliver a killer main event and we have a new champ!! Awesome match!!

The Fabs keep getting screwed out of the belt at every turn, I think we might need a Cage Match! HTM is garnering himself some major heat right off the bat.

Tully retains against Dream Machine, but with a huge debut from Spivey and the arrival of Tito Santana, he may have some new competition in the near future.

Glad to see my man Harley pick up the win against Ayala

What a show for the fans in San Antonio!

Nice start with the AWA Light Heavyweight match where McGraw gave Dynamite Kid all he could handle.

Stasiak is making a great manager for Jumbo

Guerreros and Sheepherders might need a steel cage or a lumberjack match to contain this white hot feud.

I like Wells in this role of getting a lot of attention on TV but putting over Atlas in the big show.  Wells was really underrated and I love your use of him.  He could have been bigger in real life especially in the Southern brawling promotions like TNT.

Race and Ayala was a war and I could have seen that going either way.  Race is such a big name in pro wrestling but Ayala was one tough hombre.

You have done another magic act with a great midcard feud between Jaggers and Street.  Can Street now get revenge is the question.

Tully could be TV champ forever and it would never get old!  That is until he wants more.  The sky is the limit.

Nightmares are proving to be just that for the Fab Ones... a true Nightmare!

Funk vs Bockwinkle.... a perfect outcome for Texas!  What happens next?  If the big show is in Memphis... the King might have some input.  

WHAT A SHOW... WHAT A ROSTER

TNT Wresting TV @ The Junction, San Antonio TX 4-12-84

TNT.jpg

 

The show opens with footage of Terry Funk defeating Nick Bockwinkle for the TNT title at the Hemisfair Arena. 

 

Stack: Hello everybody and welcome to another addition of TNT wrestling. We have a loaded program for you tonight. The AWA World Champion Hulk Hogan will be in action. We also have a huge tag team title match tonight. Earlier this week in Odessa, Tony Atlas and Hercules Ayala won a tag team battle royal and will be wrestling the Nightmares for the AWA Southern Tag titles, tonight! Also George Wells takes on the Dream Machine and Rick McGraw will face Johnny Wilhoit. Well, it's my privilege to bring out the new TNT champion, Terry Funk.

Funk comes out to a good ovation and holds the title up. 

Stack: Congratulations Terry. I have to say you really put Bockwinkle down as you piledrove him on a chair and even gave him another one for good measure. 

Funk: I put Bockwinkle down, yes I did and I won this here title. I want every wrestler here in TNT to know that I will keep this title by any means necessary! I don't care if it's Bockwinkle, Blanchard, Lawler or Jaggers! You face the Funker and you're losing the fight!  I fought long and hard to get this title and I'm going to make damn sure it stays with me! 

Stack: Ok, Terry Funk promises to remain champion for a long time to come. Let's go to the ring. 

 

Tito Santana vs. Gary Williams

The fans are behind Tito as he puts Williams down with several drop kicks. The end comes when Santana swings Williams to the ropes and hits the flying forearm smash to get the pin! Santana goes the  podium.

Santana: It's great to be in TNT Steve. I'm looking forward to facing the competition here. These fans have been great and I'm going to give them my best. Ariba! 

 

Commercial Break

 

Cuban Assassin and Sheik Ali Hassan vs. Roy Stanton and James Richmond

Hassan made a surprise debut as he helped Cuban put a beating on Steve O at the Hemisfair card. Cuban and Sheik totally destroy their opponents. The ending comes when Cuban holds up Stanton and Sheik swings off the ropes and hits him with a high knee to the face for the pin! The fans boo as they head to the podium. 

Cuban and Sheik cut a promo and warn every team to stay out of their way! They laugh at Steve O and say Ratamyus sent in the Sheik. They laugh some more and say just wait until Ratamyus returns! 

Stack: Those menacing individuals give me the chills. When we come back, the AWA world champ will be in action! 

 

Commercial Break 

 

AWA World Champ Hulk Hogan vs. Terry Gibbs

The fans give Hogan a rousing ovation. Hogan slams Gibbs all over the ring then finishes him off with the Axe Bomber to get the pin! The fans cheer as Hogan holds up the AWA title and heads to the podium. 

Stack: Please welcome the AWA World Champion, the Incredible Hulk Hogan! 

Hogan: Man, Steve it's great to be here in TNT brother! I want all these great fans to know I'll be defending the AWA title next month at the Jackson Coliseum brother! 

WHAM!!! 

Hogan is hit from behind by a steel chair as Austin Idol stands over him! Idol hits Hogan's leg with the chair then clamps on the Las Vegas Leglock! Stack is screaming for help as Idol wrenches away. Finally several officials come out as we cut to a commercial. 

 

Commercial Break

 

Stack: Oh my fans, Hogan was just helped out of here by several officials. I have no idea wh...

Austin Idol appears to a chorus of boos.

Stack: Austin Idol, what was the meaning of that?!?! 

Idol: I just couldn't take it anymore! I have had to watch as that Universal Heartthrob wannabe prances around with the AWA world title. The AWA needs the real deal representing them and that's exactly what I am! So Hogan, baby, what do you say? Me and you at the Jackson Coliseum. Steve, it's about time I put that imposter down baby! 

Stack: Well, we'll see what Jerry Jarrett has to say about all this. Fans, back to the ring. 

 

'Hangman' Bobby Jaggers vs. Vic Dutro

Jaggers is feeling pretty good as he's coming off his bullrope match win over Adrian Street. Jaggers swings Vic to the ropes and clotheslines him down, then finishes him off with the Hangman's Neckbreaker for the pin! 

Steve Stack announces Jaggers is the number one contender to the TV title and will face Tully Blanchard at the Jackson Coliseum card next month.

Jaggers cuts a promo and says now that he's taken care of Street, Tully and the TV title is next up! 

 

Commercial Break

 

'Quick Draw' Rick McGraw vs. 'New Generation' Johnny Wilhoit 

McGraw is coming off a disappointing loss to AWA light heavyweight champ Dynamite Kid while Wilhoit has shown some frustration after some losses recently. Both men are looking to get back on the winning track tonight. The first few minutes is fast paced back and forth action. Wilhoit takes control and has things going his way as he almost gets McGraw with several near falls. There's a buzz in the crowd as Mr. Electricity Steve Regal walks out. Regal circles the ring as the match goes on. Wilhoit swings McGraw to the ropes but misses a clothesline, McGraw swings back and drop kicks him down. McGraw is in control then hoists Wilhoit up for a vertical suplex but Regal reaches in and trips McGraw as Wilhoit falls on top. The Ref counts as Regal holds on to McGraw's leg 1..2..3! 

The fans are booing. Wilhoit looks puzzled as the Ref holds up his arm. Wilhoit rolls out of the ring as McGraw gets up and looks down at Regal. Regal walks over to Wilhoit and whispers something then, puts his arm around him and they head to the back. 

 

Commercial Break

 

Stack: Not sure what's going on between Regal and Wilhoit but I'm sure Rick McGraw isn't going to let that go. Fans, I want to bring out the former TNT champ Nick Bockwinkle. 

Nick comes out with his arms folded and looks down for a moment. 

Bock: Just doesn't feel right when I don't have gold around my waist. I only have one thing to say, I want Terry Funk and I want a rematch at the Jackson Coliseum. 

There's a commotion as Harley Race comes out. 

Harley: Nick, we've been friends a long time and with all due respect I think that title shot should be mine. 

Bock: We have been friends a long time but there's no way that title shot doesn't belong to me. 

Jerry Jarrett walks out.

Jarrett: Gentlemen, I have a solution. Next week on our TV show in Memphis, the two of you will have a match and the winner will wrestle Terry Funk for a TNT title match. 

Bock and Race stare at each other and nod in agreement then walk out. 

Jarrett: Next thing I want to address is the actions of Austin Idol earlier tonight. Regardless of what Idol thinks, he just cant demand a title shot and get it. And he just cant assault the AWA champion and not expect consequences. Rest assured Idol, I will be talking with Verne Gagne and you will be punished.

 

Dan Spivey vs. Kent Barber 

Spivey made quite a debut at the Hemisfair card when he beat an unprepared Kerry Brown by count out. The fans are impressed with Spivey's physique and power and he uses it to his advantage. He swings Kent to the ropes and puts him down with a big boot then drops a big elbow to get the pin! 

Spivey is cutting a promo with Stack when Johnny Valiant comes out to interrupt. 

Valiant: Let me be honest. Spivey you have a tremendous look and you were very impressive tonight but at the Hemisfair Arena you were just plain lucky punk! My main man Kerry Brown had a 103 degree fever and was out there against Doctor's orders because that's the kind of competitor he is. I assure you, he's healthy and ready to go. If you have the guts big man then accept his challenge next month in Jackson! 

Spivey: I don't need guts. I already beat him and I'll beat him again! It's on! 

 

Stack: Ok, another match set for the Jackson card. Should be a good one. It's now my pleasure to bring out Cocoa Samoa. Cocoa welcome back. It's good to see you after that horrible incident with Ratamyus a few weeks back. As you know, Ratamyus is currently on suspension for those actions. 

Cocoa: Great to be back Steve. Right now I want to make a plea to Jerry Jarrett. Jerry, I'm begging you. Lift the suspension! I want Ratamyus and I want him in a no DQ match! If he wants to fight dirty well I can fight dirty as well. Steve, I've made it my mission to rid TNT of Ratamyus and I wont stop until my mission is complete! Your time is ticking Ratamyus! 

 

Commercial Break

 

Dream Machine vs. 'Master G' George Wells w/Jimmy Hart

It doesn't take long for this to turn into a slugfest. These two hammer away on each other until Wells rakes the eyes and puts Dream down with a short arm clothesline. Hart is happy and cheering Wells on. Wells body slams Dream and chokes him with his boot then drags him over and chokes him on the rope. Dream is hanging over the ropes as Wells swings off the opposite ropes and hits a guillotine. Wells body slams Dream and drops a knee 1..2..Kick Out. Hart is on the outside berating the Ref. Wells goes to the top rope and goes for another knee but Dream rolls out of the way. Wells is holding his knee as Dream regroups. Dream stomps away on Wells then body slams him several times. Hart gets on the apron but cant jump down fast enough as Dream grabs him by his shirt. Dream levels him with a big right punch! The fans cheer as Hart fly's off the apron and on the ground. Wells nails Dream with a clothesline from behind that sends Dream over the top rope. Wells goes to the outside and sees Hart on the ground. Wells grabs a cable cord and chokes Dream with it. Wells doesn't listen to the Ref and the Ref signals for the DQ. Wells keeps choking Dream with the cable cord. Wells finally releases then picks up Dream and slams him on the concrete before helping Hart up. 

 

Stack: Oh my a lot of tension on tonight's show. Dream Machine is being helped out as we speak. I hope he's ok. Well fans, my guest at this time is the TV champion, Tully Blanchard.

Tully comes out in a suit and sunglasses with the title on his shoulder. He looks over at Dream Machine being helped out and smirks. 

Tully: After the beating I gave Dream Machine at the Hemisfair show, it's no wonder he's being helped out of here. Steve Stack you're looking at pure greatness. I mean who better to represent TNT television than me? I'm the one drawing the ratings. You know why all these idiots out here hate me? Because I back up everything I say in that ring. When your as good as I am, it's ok to brag. Now, I understand that hick Bobby Jaggers is next up. Yea, he's next alright. Jeez, could you imagine a man with a 4th grade education representing TNT television? That's why I'm champ Steve, I have to prevent guys like him from embarrassing TNT. Jaggers, wake up, you don't stand a chance at MY title! 

 

Commercial Break

 

Sheepherders vs. William Hillman and Steve Rooney

Sheepherders dismantle their opponents and finish them off with a double rib breaker for the pin! The fans boo as they head to the podium.

They cut a vicious promo on the Guerreros and say they want to beat up on them some more! Stack announces they will face the Guerreros at the Jackson card in a tornado street fight! The Sheepherders smile and say they cant wait. 

 

Commercial Break 

 

AWA Southern Tag Team Title Bout

The Nightmares (C) w/Jimmy Hart vs. 'Mr. USA' Tony Atlas and Hercules Ayala

Jimmy Hart is still in the back recovering from Dream Machine's punch. The fans boo as the Honkytonk Man (with his guitar) escorts them out. Atlas and Ayala teamed up at the last minute to pull off an upset in Odessa to win a tag team battle royal and earn this shot. Atlas and Ayala are going over strategy as Honkytonk and the Nightmares antagonize them. The Ref sternly warns Honkytonk. Honkytonk smiles, puts up his hands and walks to the outside. 

Atlas and Ayala control the early moments and work well for a makeshift team. They swing Wayne to the ropes and put him down with a double back elbow smash. Ayala works over Wayne then hits a big back drop and tags in Atlas. Atlas drops a knee and covers 1..2..Davis kicks Atlas on the head. Ayala runs in but the Ref quickly guides him back. Davis body slams Atlas before going back to his corner. Wayne finally tags in Davis. Davis stomps away on Atlas, hops on the middle ropes and crashes down with a forearm drop 1..2..Kick Out. Davis tags in Wayne. They lift Atlas up and hit a double vertical suplex. Wayne swings off the ropes and drops a jumping elbow 1..2..Kick Out. Wayne pushes Atlas to the corner and the Nightmares double team him. Ayala runs over but the Ref guides him back. Honkytonk gets on the apron and him and the Nightmares beat on Atlas. Ayala has enough and runs back over with fists flying. He knocks Honkytonk off the apron and then sends Davis flying. The Ref gets order as Ayala goes back to his corner. Wayne swings Atlas to the ropes and goes for a back drop but Atlas kicks him and follows with a jumping headbutt before tagging in Ayala. The fans roar as Ayala punches away on Wayne. Ayala hits a backbreaker then picks Wayne up and clamps on the bear hug! The fans are going wild. Davis runs in but Atlas charges and sends him flying into the turnbuckles with a high knee. Atlas goes over and pounds away on Davis while Ayala still has Wayne in a bear hug. The Ref is trying to get Atlas off Davis. Honkytonk grabs his guitar and gets in the ring but the fans go absolutely crazy when Jerry Lawler hits the ring, grabs Honkytonk by his hair and hurls him out! Lawler goes out after him and just pounds away on him, then lifts him up and rams him into the steel post! Atlas punches Davis through the ropes and goes back to his corner. Ayala (with the bear hug clamped) rams Wayne into the turnbuckles and belly to belly suplexes him over 1..2..3!!!! The crowd goes nuts! Hercules Ayala and Tony Atlas are the new champs!! 

Jerry Lawler is looking down at a busted open Honkytonk Man, then looks up at Atlas and Ayala holding up the titles. Lawler smiles then leaves. 

The show ends as the crowd continues to cheer on the new champs! 

New AWA Southern Tag Team Champs- Tony Atlas and Hercules Ayala!

Idol is a strong challenger for Hogan and with this sorta heat, I think these two would sell a lot of tickets in this region to see them square off for the title! Looking forward to this one!

WOW! Thanks to Jerry Lawler, we may have the oddest pairing of Southern Tag Team champions of all time!! Tony Atlas and Hercules Ayala is an odd couple to say the least but they will be a tough team to beat for sure.  I hope the Nightmares find their way to Southeastern one of these days down the line.

You are getting so much out of this Funk, Bockwinkle, Race trio and I could see them just playing musical chairs for a long time with the title and it would all be so believable.  

I was pleasantly surprised that it was Austin Idol who attacked Hogan.  That is another believable match that would have a lot of a pomp and circumstance.

Nice job getting the young Spivey into an angle right away.

Loved the tag team match for the title as I was completely unsure what would happen.  Atlas and Ayala should make great champs!

I love the Funker as champion, and having Race vs Bockwinkel to determine the first challenger... Wow. Either guy can headline any territory and they are fighting for a shot!

Idol calling Hogan a "Heartthrob wannabe" is fantastic stuff. Definitely looking forward to that one too. 

Honky/Lawler is gonna be great when it happens. Love it boiling over and costing the Nightmares.

Ayala/Atlas is quite the odd couple, but it could lead to some fun matches.

I also still can't past the sneaking feeling that one day soon Tully Blanchard is going to turn his attention to that main event scene, and Terry, Harley, and Nick might never see it coming!

Good show dude.

Lance Russell: Hello wrestling fans, we have a great show for you tonight. Well, you saw at the top of the program what transpired last week. Right after the show Jerry Jarrett phoned Verne Gagne to tell him what happened but Hogan had already called Verne and told him not to punish Idol and he will put the title on the line against Idol at the Oman Arena in Jackson Tennessee on May 3rd. We have prerecorded comments from the champ Hulk Hogan. 

 

Hogan: Austin Idol! After what happened last week, the only thing you proved to me was that you're nothing but a universal coward brother! On May 3rd I'm coming back to Tennessee and I'm not only going to remain champion but I'm going to give you a beating you'll never going to forget!

Valiant: You heard it straight from the man. Now, listen up Lance Russell. I have put together a new team. When I saw these two guys. well I saw money baby. Let me introduce to you The Real Deal, New Generation Johnny Wilhoit and Mr. Electricity Steve Regal! 

The fans boo as Wilhoit and Regal come out wearing shiny red glitter jackets. 

Valiant: The name Real Deal speaks for itself. They're not phonies like the Fabulous Ones or washed up losers like the Guerreros. They're two guys in the prime of their lives and the sky's the limit under my guidance. 

Lance: Oh come on, Johnny Wilhoit, I don't know why you would associate yourself with these men? 

Wilhoit: It's simple. Where did kissing up to all these idiot fans get me? Nowhere! They didn't believe in me but Johnny Valiant and Steve Regal do. 

The fans cheer as Rick McGraw comes out. 

McGraw: Oh now this all makes sense. (Looks at Wilhoit) Last week I thought we were going to have a match of respect but then (looks at Regal) this goon interferes. You guys call yourselves the Real Deal? Well you haven't come close to earning that name! 

Regal and Wilhoit jump McGraw and start pounding away! The fans go crazy as Ivan Putski runs out with fists flying! They brawl around for a moment until Valiant is able to get his men out of there.

Great main event between Harley Race and Nick Bockwinkel. Should be a classic between Funk and Harley. You always have a knack for finding the best names for tag teams! Gonna keep my eye on the Real Deal!

Great Main Event!  Race vs Bockwinkle with a clean win...  I wish I had seen something like this when I was a kid.

Decimation is quickly becoming one of my favorite teams in the game!

Family Feud with Lawler and HTM is awesome!

Atlas and Ayala are quickly becoming the real deal and should be in line for an AWA title shot.  Imagine the power in the ring if the do meet the Road Warriors.

The Real Deal might just be what the Fab Ones need to put them over the top!

Looking forward to your work with Hogan vs Idol!  It is funny to me that Idol was so talented on the mic for a southern promotion that he really needed a title to get huge reactions from the crowd but Hogan to me is the opposite as Hogan needed that title

Your main event scene is just fantastic.

Race vs Funk is gonna be awesome, and the Race/Bock match lived up to expectations to get us there!

Idol is a great contender for Hogan, and you've got Lawler in a blood feud with HTM that is gonna lead to some classic brawls.

Meanwhile Tully is biding his time with the TV Title.

Anyone of these guys could be holding the top title in a promotion, and you've got them all under on roof. The balancing is great, but at some point I hope you find a way to have all of these elements come together for some kind of once in a lifetime winner takes all match for the title!
