Wrestling from the Sam Houston Coliseum – Episode No. 1 “Going Live” – 31st of March 1985 – Airing Live on KHTV 39 Gold

Advertised Match:

12 Man Over-the-Top-Rope Battle Royal for the NWA Western States Heavyweight Championship

A brief video package plays with clips from Houston Wrestling intermixed with clips from the NWA. We cut to Paul Boesch and Pat Patterson backstage after a quick panning shot of the crowd featuring the NWA logo coloured dark red.

Boesch is holding a microphone and Patterson is holding a small gold championship belt with a red strap. The engraving at the top of the main plate reads “Houston Sports” and covering the centre in large letters is “TV”. Boesch speaks after a few seconds of silence.

“Well, good friends, it’s been a hectic time for Houston Wrestling and not just in these past two weeks but it’s, uh, all been worth it to have, uh, to, uh, for us to be going live. From now on, Houston Wrestling be broadcasting live every Tuesday night from the Sam Houston Coliseum.

With me here today, is the man who made all this possible … the President of the Houston Sports Championship Committee, Pat Patterson. If we, uh, we want to take you back to March Seventeenth, a great night for fans of Houston Wrestling …”

After a few seconds, footage airs from an event held at the Sam Houston Coliseum on the 17th of March, promoted variously as the “Showdown at Sundown” and the “Legendary Showdown”. The main attraction was a match between Sam Houston and “the Purple Haze” for the NWA Texas Heavyweight title (which the latter won) but it also featured a meet-and-greet with figures from Houston Wrestling’s past, most notably Grizzly Smith and Danny McShain.

The event featured the reintroduction and reactivation of various title belts, along with the physical introduction of brand-new title designs. The Texas designs all followed a common aesthetic of large main plates with a lone star in the centre and a bronze finish on a black strap, though the women’s title was much slimmer, and the strap was white. The designs of the Western States were far more ornate, and the plates were silver on a dark blue strap.

The video cuts off and Boesch begins speaking again. “Now, without any further ado, let’s get to a match in progress.”

The match in progress is between Chris Benoit and Denny Brown. It’s a competitive back-and-forth but Benoit is more consistently in control.

Chris Benoit defeats Denny Brown in 07:39 by pinfall with a German Suplex to win the vacant NWA Texas Junior Heavyweight Championship

After the match we throw right back to Paul Boesch, Pat Patterson having disappeared. “Don’t go anywhere folks … we’ve got more championship action coming up.”

We cut for a commercial break and when the programme comes back on, Tojo Yamamoto is in the ring awaiting his opponent. Pat Patterson is at ringside, holding onto the television title, flanked by the Takanos (presumably his bodyguards).

Sam Houston makes his entrance to applause and a heated match gets underway. The story is simple, Houston can’t match Yamamoto’s power, but Yamamoto can’t match Houston’s speed. The slight edge goes to Houston, however, once he proves capable of knocking Tojo off his feet a few times.

Visibly angry, Yamamoto eventually breaks away from the action to rave at Patterson, threatening to leave the ring. This causes Pat to scarper around the ring to the other side. The Takanos appear to take Yamamoto’s bait, however, and they climb onto the apron.

With the referee distracted, however, a dastardly plan reveals itself. Patterson steps up to the other side of the ring and clocks Houston across the head with the belt. Yamamoto fobs the Takanos off and rushes back to capitalise on Houston, who has been knocked silly. After a lazy scoop slam, Yamamoto pins Sam Houston with one foot on his chest.

After the match, a beaming Pat Patterson hands the belt over to Yamamoto, as a confused-looking referee raises his arm. The Takanos flank the pair to a chorus of boos.

We cut for a commercial break and return to Paul Boesch. He does not comment on the previous match, instead, throwing to another video package, detailing another untelevised event from the 24th of March, which saw the Hart Foundation crowned Western States tag champions.

We cut back for the main event, watching the participants march out in single file. Magnum, T.A. is out first, followed by Terry Funk, Bret Hart with Jim Neidhart, Kevin Sullivan with “the Purple Haze” and “the Fallen Angel”, Bobby Eaton with Jim Cornette and Dennis Condrey, Kevin Von Erich, Tony Atlas, Steve Keirn with Stan Lane, “Hacksaw” Butch Reed, Pedro Morales, Jimmy Garvin and, finally, Barry Windham.

Once all the participants are in the ring, the bell rings and all hell breaks loose. Jimmy Garvin is a shocking early elimination, being taken out by a group effort – deliberate or not – from Kevin Sullivan, Bret Hart and Butch Reed. Garvin tries to get back in the ring, against the fruitless resistance of numerous officials, but when he begins clubbing at the men who throw him out, Jim Neidhart and “the Purple Haze” attack him from the outside and pull him down, stomping on him until officials can escort him backstage.

Tentative alliances are formed in the early goings of the match, most notably between Tony Atlas and Barry Windham but nothing last long after a massive pile-on rids the match of both Pedro Morales and Bobby Eaton. Enraged by this, Cornette instructs Condrey to get some kind of revenge. He ends up pulling Bret Hart out and over, with assistance from Butch Reed and Steve Keirn.

The Hart Foundation and the Midnight Express proceed to brawl around the ring for the duration of the match. Butch Reed and Steve Keirn are tossed out by Kevin Von Erich and Tony Atlas, respectively, soon after. Terry Funk and Kevin Sullivan then team up to eliminate Tony Atlas and Barry Windham. Steve Kerin and Stan Lane join the tag team brawl around this time.

Funk and Sullivan to do the same with Von Erich but, after a brief struggle, Funk gives up on that plan and tosses Sullivan over instead. Magnum, T.A. tries to capitalise on this and throw Von Erich and Funk both out on his own. A little too ambitious, the plan fails, and Funk gets the better of him.

The final two, Kevin Von Erich and Terry Funk have a brief go at a wrestling match but, after a strike to the face sends Funk barrelling to the ring ropes, Von Erich goes all in on a charge. Feinting, Funk lets himself fall at just the right moment, pulling the top rope down and letting Von Erich fly out.

Terry Funk defeats Jimmy Garvin, Pedro Morales, Bobby Eaton, Bret Hart, “Hacksaw” Butch Reed, Steve Keirn, Tony Atlas, Barry Windham, Kevin Sullivan, Magnum, T.A. and Kevin Von Erich in 14:09 to win the vacant NWA Western States Heavyweight Championship

After a brief look at the night’s victors, the episode ends.

Awesome start to Houston Wrestling!  This is a HUGE addition to our game!

Love the format and how you showed non-televised events and video tapes to explain who has the belts and how they got them.  Also very simple to follow

Funk was the perfect choice to win the Battle Royal for the Western States title as the FUNK family is Western States!

Thanks for continuing some of my NWA angles and I will give you lots of respect on my show!

Tojo will be a great heel champ!

I like Pat Patterson in his new roll!

Sullivan and his antics will be fun to follow

Wrestling from the Sam Houston Coliseum – Episode No. 2 – 7th of April 1985 – Airing Live on KHTV 39 Gold

Advertised Match:

“the Purple Haze” versus Tony Garea for the NWA Texas Heavyweight Championship

A brief video package plays with clips from Houston Wrestling intermixed with clips from the NWA. We immediately cut to the ring as Tojo Yamamoto makes his entrance. He is accompanied by Pat Patterson, who carries his title belt.

After a few moments of teasing and taunting the crowd, the match gets underway and Tojo slaps the opposition all around the ring. He remains dominant throughout and ends the match when Pat begins yelling “make it quick!”

Tojo Yamamoto (w/ Pat Patterson) defeats a local talent in 01:59 by pinfall after a flapjack to retain the HS Television Championship

We cut backstage to Paul Boesch, flanked by Debbie Combs. “Well, friends, it’s a good thing for – uh – Tojo Yamamoto that he managed to defend his title so quickly because he’s got another match tonight! He’ll be challenging for the Texas – uh – Six Man title and, at end of the night, we’ll have just one champion left to crown … the women’s champion.

Next week Houston Wrestling will be stretching to two hours of a – uh – the – uh – Legendary Showdown number two. That’s right and you’ll see all the best wrestlers from the National Wrestling Alliance. And Debbie Combs will go one on one with Velvet McIntyre.

For now, though, we have plenty of championship action coming up!”

We cut to the ring and, just seconds after the bell is rung, Tony Garea is getting his arse kicked. “the Purple Haze” is dominant and even his brief moments of hope are dashed by interference from Kevin Sullivan and the Fallen Angel. Garea’s own backup, in the form of Rene Goulet, is unable to even the odds.

“the Purple Haze” defeats Tony Garea in 09:10 by submission with a sleeper to retain the NWA Texas Heavyweight Championship

We cut to commercials and return to the ring just before the opening bell. On one side, we have Nelson Royal and Sam Houston and, on the other, we have Baron von Raschke and the Sheik.

The match is far more competitive than the opener but that isn’t saying match as Sam Houston in particular gets plenty of time to shine.

Sam Houston & Nelson Royal defeat Baron von Raschke & the Sheik in 07:41 when Sam Houston pins Baron von Raschke after a bulldog to win the vacant NWA Texas Tag Team Championship

We cut to commercials before returning to Paul Boesch, sans Debbie Combs. “So, we have our tag team champions and, for those not in the know, Nelson Royal and Sam Houston will be competing in the Crockett Cup. I certainly hope they do Houston Wrestling proud!”

We cut to the ring. Tojo Yamamoto and the Takanos are already there, along with Pat Patterson, waiting for their opponents to appear. Flanked by the Youngbloods, Leon White marches down to the ring, looking all-business.

The Takanos and the Youngbloods have an evenly matched back-and-forth, with a few tags between them until the story of the match begins to unfold. Jay Youngblood is eventually brought over to the Japanese team’s corner for some abuse. Yamamoto is brought in to finish the job but, with encouragement from Pat, decides to drag Jay back again to the corner.

The abuse finally breaks Mark, after a hair pull from Pat, and he gets down from the apron to sprint around the ring. He gets himself into trouble with the Takanos but succeeds in his ultimate goal of freeing Jay up to make the tag.

The Baby Bull gets in and thunders towards Tojo, knocking him to his feet with a shoulder tackle. Yamamoto doesn’t get time to adjust until the match is over. A belly to belly puts him away and Mark holds the Takanos by the legs as they try to make the save, getting a wallop on the back with a title belt from Pat for his troubles.

“Baby Bull” Leon White & Mark Youngblood & Jay Youngblood defeat Tojo Yamamoto & George Takano & Shunji Takano in 14:03 when “Baby Bull” Leon White pins Tojo Yamamoto after a belly-to-belly suplex to win the vacant NWA Texas Six Man Tag Team Championship

A brawl develops in the immediate aftermath of the match, with the Japanese besting the champions with the numbers advantage. A gruesome beatdown is prevented however when Nelson Royal, Sam Houston, Tony Garea and Rene Goulet rush down to chase the attackers off.

Houston is rolling!

I love your commentary for Paul Boesch.  I had never really watches and I went back and so some old tapes.  You are spot on....uh-the-uh

Tojo doing double duty is admirable for someone his age but Baby Bull got him in the end.   Thanks for the help building him up and making the Youngbloods more relevant.

Sam Houston is really coming into his own here which is great to have a top babyface to get the crowd going

Can't wait for the 2 hour version of Houston Wrestling!!

This is a great place for Baby Bull to develop. Him vs. Tojo will be a lot of fun. 

Even though they came up short, I really like the Takano's. Them and the Youngblood's will put on some good matches. 

Purple Haze is a great fit for the Texas Title. 

Sam Houston is the breakout star here and will continue to shine.

Any place that immediately puts a title on Terry Funk, and is giving a push to Sam Houston is okay in my book.

Dug the first two shows, and look forward to seeing where things go.

Wrestling from the Sam Houston Coliseum – Episode No. 3 “Legendary Showdown II” – 14th of April 1985 – Airing Live, with pre-taped segments, on KHTV 39 Gold

Advertised Match:

Ten Team Lottery Draw Over-the-Top-Rope Battle Royal

LEGENDARY SHOWDOWN II

We open cold with our first match. Tojo, not accompanied by Pat Patterson this time, flattens his competition and, once again, seals his victory with a disrespectful foot on the chest.

Tojo Yamamoto defeats a local talent in 03:46 by pinfall after an axe handle from the second rope to retain the HS Television Championship

We cut from a beaming Tojo to the back, where Paul Boesch and Pat Patterson are standing in front of a golden tumbler.

“What a show we’ve got for you today, friends! In just a moment we’ll be crowning our women’s champion but – uh – first we’re going to laid out just how our tag team battle royal is going to work.”

The camera zooms in on Pat and the tumbler, to show that it’s been filled by ten ping pong balls, each a distinct colour. Pat explains, “we’ve got ten teams an’ ten places, entrens’ number one an’ number two start in da’ ring. Nine’y seconds later, team number three comes out an’ on and on. Before da’ match, dey’re gonna’ come up ‘ere an’ I’ll ‘and ‘em dey’re ball – ha ha!”

“Well – uh – there’s, that’s … there it is. Ten teams, ten places, randomly drawn, staggered entry, over the top rope. Let’s get back to the action!”

The women’s match is a pure face/face affair, though the crowd clearly favour Debbie Combs. It starts with a respectful handshake and plays out evenly and competitively, with the girls matching each other hold for hold, snapmare for snapmare.

The tide, turns, however, when Combs misses a dropkick and McIntyre capitalises with a legdrop. Combs is too late to recover and gets hit with a running crossbody as soon as she finds her feet.

Velvet McIntyre defeats Debbie Combs in 08:53 by pinfall after a running crossbody to win the NWA Texas Women’s Championship

We cut to a commercial break after the match and return to the opening bell of another championship bout.

Nelson Royal is up against Chris Benoit and proves himself more than a match for the rookie. Whilst Benoit has the power, the smarts go to Royal who gets the advantage of every hold and does everything he can to keep his opponent tired and grounded.

As the match goes on, both men become panicked and desperate to put things away, leading to a finish stretch of roll-ups and reversals. Neither man can seal the deal, however.

Chris Benoit goes to a time limit draw with Nelson Royal in 10:00 to retain the NWA Texas Junior Heavyweight ChampionshipMatch Taped, 11th of April

We cut to the back, with Paul Boesch, Kevin Sullivan, “the Fallen Angel” and “the Purple Haze”. “Well we just saw an excellent technical match but now I’ve – uh – we’ve got the – uh – Kevin Sullivan here. Now, you’ve got to face Sam Houston in our main event here tonight. Do you have anything to say about that?”

As Sullivan speaks, “the Purple Haze” growls and groans at convenient intervals. “Yes I do! I know this match will go down. I learned the fate of Sam Houston when I received the wisdom of Abudadein. When I bathed in the earthen water, I understood the power he had to offer me. That power is why “the Purple Haze” is a champion! That power is why I cannot lose to Sam Houston!”

“the Fallen Angel” concurs, “my master cannot lose!”

“I cannot lose! When I learned this, sunlight rained from my body like a waterfall, but the snake master told me that that was not enough. He said I must expel the blackened lumps of clay from my soul. And when I did, I felt invigorated! I knew, from that day forward, that I was invincible … as are all who follow me … like “the Fallen Angel” …”

“Yes!”

“… like “the Purple Haze” …”

“the Purple Haze” roars his approval.

“… and just like “the Lone Star” … come look, Sam Houston, come see!”

Sullivan ushers the former Gary Royal into view of the camera. He appears stony and vacant and his hair was been dyed jet black. He has a pentagram painted on his chest.

“That is what you’re up against, Sam Houston … aha ha ha ha!”

We cut for a commercial break and return to see the Fabulous Ones in the ring, awaiting entrant number two.

A klaxon sounds and the Midnight Express rush down to the ring, with Jim Cornette at their heels. They waste no time in getting to work and the two teams go hard against each other, with strikes and slams.

Cornette makes his appearance felt, helping to eliminate Stan Lane. The Midnight Express are devastating Steve Keirn with quite a beatdown until the klaxon sounds and the Youngbloods run down to re-balance the odds. Keirn and the Youngbloods then manage to eliminate Dennis Condrey, sending Cornette apoplectic at ringside.

Eaton does a good job of fending of his attackers, however, long enough for the Cuban Assassins to come running down at the next sounding of the klaxon. The new alliance of the Cuban Assassins plus Bobby Eaton gets the better of Jay Youngblood, sending him over the top rope in short order.

They aren’t effective enough to keep the momentum, however, as Steve Keirn and Mark Youngblood are eventually joined by Tony Garea and Rene Goulet. These guys remove both of the assassins from the match and Cornette has to whack a few of them with his tennis racket to save Eaton from his own exit.

The klaxon then sounds for the fifth time and the Funk brothers bring hellfire to the four, eliminating each one in short order before turning on Eaton and throwing him over. Cornette responds to this with a temper tantrum before being escorted to the back by his team.

The Funks hang around in the ring, jeering at the crowd as they await their next victims.

The klaxon sounds and … Dusty Rhodes rushes down to the ring, with Barry Windham at his side. The two teams get into a wild brawl, ending when Dory is ejected and Terry goes to ground, rolling under the bottom rope and hiding.

Rhodes and Windham are soon embroiled in a fight with the next entrants, the Lumberjacks. They get the better of the contest and eliminate the pair, just in time for another team to join the fray. The Hart Foundation prove to be challenge enough and produce a stalemate that is only upended by the arrival of the final team … the Takanos, accompanied by Pat Patterson.

It is now, with Rhodes and Windham beset on all sides that we … cut to a commercial break.

We return to find Rhodes and Windham in a bad way, beaten and exhausted but not without hope. A picture in picture shot, shows us, Shunji Takano being eliminated. The three on one contest is not interrupted by Terry Funk, who continues to hide at ring side.

After a monumental effort, George Takano and the Hart Foundation, with assistance for Shunji and Pat, get Dusty out and over but Windham takes advantage and bowls George and Jim both out. Terry is unwillinging embroiled in a brawl with Dusty on the outside, as Bret and Barry go one on one.

The Dream cannot be contained, however, and, among others, Pat Patterson bumps all other the place for him. Dusty rolls Terry into the ring, just as Bret is eliminated and gets his own comeuppance in short order.

Dusty Rhodes & Barry Windham defeat Stan Lane & Steve Keirn, Dennis Condrey & Bobby Eaton, Mark Youngblood & Jay Youngblood, Cuban Assassin #1 & Cuban Assassin #2, Tony Garea & Rene Goulet, Terry Funk & Dory Funk, Jr., George Takano & Shunji Takano and Bret Hart & Jim Neidhart in 27:31

We cut to a pre-taped segment, where Paul Boesch is interviewing Sam Houston. “Now, we heard from Kevin Sullivan earlier but – uh – I think the fans to hear your thoughts, Sam. What’ve you got to say to Kevin Sullivan?”

“Well, I don’t put much stock in what Mister Sullivan had to say. But I tell you what! I know now where I went wrong against “the Purple Haze”. I trained my body for a match against him when I should’ve trained my mind for a match against Kevin Sullivan. I don’t buy this whole dark side act, but I do buy that Sullivan’s a deranged psychopath what needs his ass whipped!

The numbers game won’t work on me this time, pal. I’ve got Nelson Royal with me. Everyone’s he’d been the junior heavyweight champion now if the time limit hadn’t got the better of him. There’s a reason we’re tag team champions and there’s a reason we were invited to the Crockett Cup! Sullivan talks about how he can’t lose, man oh man is he in for a shock tonight!

I’m gonna’ whip Sullivan and, then, I’m gonna’ whip “the Purple Haze” and there’s nothing either of them or their freaky friends can do about it!”

With that, we cut to another commercial break and return to see Leon White knocking the Sheik silly in a big bumping, sometimes nasty, competitive squash.

“Baby Bull” Leon White defeats the Sheik in 11:09 by pinfall after a sit-out powerbomb

We then cut to another interview, with time with Velvet McIntyre, holding her new title belt.

“Can we have your thoughts on becoming the first Texas women’s champion in two decades?”

“I – um – I’m very proud to be Texas women’s champion. Debbie was a tough opponent and – yeah – I think I earned this.”

“Alright, now don’t forget, friends, that coming up we have our main event! One half of the Texas tag team champions, Sam Houston, will be going up against the mysterious and formidable Kevin Sullivan … you don’t wanna’ miss it!”

After another commercial break, our main event gets under way.

Houston begins the contest with a display of power and fire straight from the opening bell not letting up until forced to break off from beatdown in the corner. If Sullivan is stunned, however, he does not let it show and he returns to the match with an exchange of holds, which he performs better in.

On the outside, Nelson Royal does an admirable job of countering Sullivan’s stable, making sure he’s on the same side of the ring as “the Purple Haze” at all times. He’s unable to counter all three at once, of course, and “the Fallen Angel” proves herself to be a special kind of nuisance but he puts on a Herculean effort all the same.

Interference from “the Lone Star” gets the finishing sequence going. Nelson Royal attacks him on the ring apron but this backfires on Royal as it is more than enough to get the referee attention. With the official distracted, “the Purple Haze” attacks Houston with a chair. He hits him in the gut and then wallops him over the back before rolling out of the ring.

Sullivan pins Houston for the visual three and gets to two when the referee turns his attention back to match. Houston is able kick out at the last second and turn things around when an irate Sullivan gets in the referee’s face.

Sam Houston defeats Kevin Sullivan by pinfall with a schoolboy roll-up in 16:17Match Taped, 11th of April

On the outside, Nelson Royal gets a thunderous chair-shot to the back from “the Purple Haze” and Sullivan’s minions then descend on Houston. The referee receives a chop to the head from “the Lone Star” and “the Purple Haze” pins Houston’s arms behind his back. “the Fallen Angel” then hands a chain to Kevin Sullivan, who uses it to open up Houston’s forehead and whip him across the chest half a dozen times.

Tony Garea and Rene Goulet, not quite at one hundred percent, rush down to the ring to even the odds but a couple of chair-shots for their trouble. We end with Sullivan and his minions celebrating in a cultish fashion.

WOW.... such excitement throughout the show.

Sam Houston won tonight but he might need some more help if he is going to deal with all of Sullivan's army with only Nelson Royal and a weakened duo of Garea and Goulet

Loved the Tag Team Battle Royal.  Thanks for hyping up some of my feuds here and also with Baby Bull

Tojo is a great heel no matter what age!

Again, great job with Paul Boesch... you got him down pretty good

Wrestling from the Sam Houston Coliseum – Episode No. 4 – 21st of April 1985 – Airing Live on KHTV 39 Gold

Advertised Match:

Sam Houston & Nelson Royal versus “the Purple Haze” & “the Lone Star” for the NWA Texas Tag Team Championship

 After a brief video package detailing the events of the previous week’s two-hour show, we open with Tojo Yamamoto.

Tojo Yamamoto obliterates his opponent and, this time, Pat does not seem particularly interesting in hurrying it up.

Tojo Yamamoto defeats a local talent in 02:35 by submission with a bear hug to retain the HS Television Championship

The champ keeps the hold locked in, thrashing his opponent around and disobeying the referee’s instructions to stop. Before long, “Baby Bull” Leon White emerges from the back and thunders down the entrance ramp.

Pat Patterson rushes up to confront him but gets a clothesline for his trouble and goes down hard. Tojo releases the hold just in time to receive a clothesline of his own, that sends him tumbling over the top rope and crashing to the floor. White scoops up the TV title and taunts a dazed and retreating Yamamoto with it before passing it the referee.

We cut to a replay of the closing seconds of the women’s title match from last week before moving on to our second match. What follows is a sweet and short showcase for Winona Little Heart.

Winona Little Heart defeats a local talent in 05:13 by pinfall with a victory roll

We return from the commercial in time for the entrance of the Texas tag champions. “the Purple Haze” and “the Lone Star” are already in the ring, accompanied by Kevin Sullivan and “the Fallen Angel”.

Things don’t look good for the champions in the early goings of the match. Whereas “the Lone Star” isn’t exactly lighting the world on fire – though he is competent – “the Purple Haze” is truly dominant. Most of the match is spent with Nelson Royal being beaten down by “the Purple Haze” which also has the effect of riling Sam Houston up.

It’s “the Fallen Angel” who makes Houston most mad, however, acting as a constant source of illegal interference. When the tag comes, Sam can barely contain himself and he turns the tide easily against Sullivan’s Army of Darkness.

Just as he begins to embarrass “the Purple Haze”, however, Kevin Sullivan puts a stop to things with a crack across the back with a steel chair.

Sam Houston & Nelson Royal defeat “the Purple Haze” & “the Lone Star” in 12:50 by disqualification and retain the NWA Texas Tag Team Championship after Kevin Sullivan employs the use of a foreign object

The beat-down continues for a minute or so but the officials are more prepared after the previous week’s incident and swarm the ring. Kevin Sullivan then leads his minions to the back, cackling all the while.

We cut to a commercial break and return just in time for the opening bell of our main event.

The Youngbloods and the Hart Foundation square off in an intense back-and-forth but, by the ten-minute mark, it becomes obvious the Hart Foundation have the edge. Though both teams get the chance to shine and each man gets roughly equal time in the ring, Bret Hart comes away looking exceptional, not once failing to get the better of an exchange.

Hart has little to be cheery about, however, when one Jim Cornette comes hobbling to the ring. Confused, Hart meets him at the apron. He threatens to punch Corny after an inaudible remark from the man gets him riled up. Cornette has the last laugh, however.

Enjoying all of your hard work.

Like that Baby Bull know has a true feud starting here with Tojo

Sam Houston is still in need of some help against Sullivan and his "minions."  Enjoying both sides of this feud!  I was always a Sullivan guy as I thought he could get the crowd off their seats in anger.

Enjoying the continuation of the Harts and Midnight Express in Houston.  I wish I could offer the Youngbloods more.  I am really excited that you have put the belts on them

Wrestling from the Sam Houston Coliseum – Episode No. 5 – 28th of April 1985 – Airing Live on KHTV 39 Gold

Advertised Match:

Sam Houston versus "the Purple Haze" for the NWA Texas Heavyweight Championship 

Our first match of the night is familiar. Tojo Yamamoto demolishes his opposition with ease, as Pat laughs and goads the crowd at ringside. The Takanos are also in attendance, spending most of their time on the entrance ramp, apparently to prevent Leon White from making an appearance.

Tojo Yamamoto defeats a local talent in 04:30 by submission with a bear hug to retain the HS Television Championship

After that, we cut to Paul Boesch in the back. “Next week, friends, we should hopefully see – uh – a – uh – more exciting contest for our television title. It’s one I know many of our fans are excited to see. Tojo Yamamoto will go one on one with the Baby Bull, Leon White.

I have been increasingly disturbed by the conduct of Kevin Sullivan and his – uh – Army of Darkness. Rest assured, measures are being considered that would ensure a fair contest next week. If Kevin Sullivan proves, later today, that he cannot be trusted then his match for the – uh – Texas tag team championship will be fought in a steel cage.”

The next match features a member of the Army of Darkness, “the Lone Star”, formerly Gary Royal. Whilst Sullivan, “the Fallen Angel” and “the Purple Haze” accompany him to the ring, they leave once the bell rings, apparently intent on complying with Paul Boesch’s instruction.

“the Lone Star” wrestles like a man possessed and, breaking and bending the rules where necessary, comes out on top of the junior heavyweight champion without the assistance of his fellow cultists.

“the Lone Star” defeats Chris Benoit in 11:02 by pinfall after a German suplex to win the NWA Texas Junior Heavyweight Championship

We cut to a commercial break and return for another match featuring the Army of Darkness. Accompanying “the Purple Haze”, this time they stick around to help him. Sam Houston is not stupid, however, and has brought backup, in the form of Tony Garea and Rene Goulet.

Throughout the match, Houston is bothered by the Army but, thanks to his allies, he is never truly overwhelmed. The two men have an intense back-and-forth, with displays of power from the Haze consistently met by shows of strength from Houston.

The longer things drag on, however, the more frantic and restless Kevin Sullivan becomes. Not long after the fifteen-minute mark, the officials lose control of the situation and the match devolves into a wild brawl.

Sam Houston defeats “the Purple Haze” in 16:22 by disqualification after interference from Kevin Sullivan but the NWA Texas Heavyweight Championship does not change hands

From scenes of several men getting colour we cut to a commercial break, returning to a calmer scene for our main event.

It quickly becomes apparent that Terry Funk wants to play mind games with the challenger. Kevin Von Erich can barely seem to get a strike without Funk retreating to the ropes, clawing at the referee’s shirt or signalling for a time-out.

These tactics work, especially after Funk begins teasing a count out loss, as Von Erich becomes more and more impatient, going for too many pinfalls that inevitably result in counts of one. After that, all it takes from Funk to seal the deal is one big move once the time is right.

Awesome show.

I just laughed when Paul Boesch said if Kevin Sullivan can't be trusted!

This would have been awesome TV seeing two title changes in one show.

Funk vs VonErich is Texas just seems right!

Looking forward to Leon vs Tojo.  Leon might be a bull but Tojo has been around so long and knows every trick in the book.  A lot of choices here for you.

Great job with Paul Boesch. You really have him down. 

The Army of Darkness is taking over. Who can stop them? I like Gary Royal's Lone Star gimmick and it seems to be working wonders for him as he takes the Jr. Title. 

Props to Sam Houston for going toe to toe with Purple Haze. 

Awesome main event as Funk retains against Kevin Von Erich.

Wrestling from the Sam Houston Coliseum – Episode No. 6 “Legendary Showdown III” – 5th of May 1985 – Airing Live on KHTV 39 Gold

Advertised Match:

Dusty Rhodes & Barry Windham versus The Midnight Express (Dennis Condrey & Bobby Eaton)

LEGENDARY SHOWDOWN III

We open on a shot of the ring, which is now adorned with gold ropes and a yellow apron – the new standard for Legendary Showdown branded events. A video package incorporating NWA action from Houston and elsewhere briefly plays and, once we return, we see the opening match ready to get underway.

The TV champ is accompanied by his stable mates, Pat Patterson and the Takanos. White, on the other hand, stands alone. The odds are not as stacked as they might first appear, however, as the Takanos prove reticent to become involved, likely owing to their upcoming match.

Pat remains a nuisance, constantly antagonising the bull and distracting the referee. All he really manages to accomplish, however, is drawing the match out in length by providing Tojo with the occasional respite from Leon’s power and dominance.

A break follows and we return for the opening bell of our women’s match. With Debbie Combs taking on Winona Little Heart, the story is simple. The match begins as a pure face-face affair, with a respectful handshake and a clean technical back-and-forth for the first seven minutes.

After a few frustrating near falls, however, and a scare of her own, Combs indulges her darker side. She receives some mild chastisement from the referee for her hair-pulling and shows of viciousness, but it all pays off when she gets some leverage from the middle rope on her final pin attempt.

We cut to the back, with a bouncy Sam Houston and a determined Nelson Royal. Houston does the talking.

“Kevin Sullivan listen up! You’ve made fools of us once or twice but that ends tonight! With a wall of steel on every side of the ring, you can’t rely on your old tricks. We’ll prove to all the world that pound for pound, man on man, we’re the better wrestlers.

The numbers game can’t save you and you can’t even throw the match when things get too much. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if you fail to even show your ugly face tonight, now that you’ve got a fair fight on your hands. So, go on … surprise us!”

We cut to a commercial break before a short bout of tag team action. Having successfully conserved their strength earlier in the night, at the expense of their stable mate, the Takanos put on an impressive showing against the experienced but ageing duo of Tony Garea and Rene Goulet.

The affair is nowhere near the level of a squash but no one in the audience is ever in any doubt that the Takanos have the clear edge.

The Takanos (Shunji Takano & George Takano) defeat Tony Garea & Rene Goulet in 09:057 when George Takano pins Rene Goulet after a piledriver

We then cut to the back for an interview with Kevin Sullivan. He is flanked by “the Purple Haze” and “the Fallen Angel”.

“Do you think I’m afraid of a steel cage, Sam Houston?! Do you think “the Purple Haze” has anything to fear? Oh no, no, no, Sam Houston!”

“the Fallen Angel” begins wagging her finger.

“He and I have left fear far behind us. The Snake Master cleansed us of fear! He purged that poison from our veins with an ancient technique, a thousand needles and a thousand eyes. We have grown to be totally unafraid of pain and of confinement.

You, however, are still trapped in your own mind with no hope of escape from the false reality it has made for you. So, when you step inside that cage you will be doubly trapped and I – we – we’ll be truly free! We’ll be free, the Haze and I, to end your championship reign and start you on the road to your ultimate destruction! Ha ha ha ha!”

We cut to a commercial break and return to see the last man in our six-man contest making his way to the ring, one Jimmy Garvin – accompanied by his glamorous valet, Precious. He shows off a little before joining his partners, Baron Von Raschke and the Sheik.

They face tough competition in the form of Ron Garvin and the Fabulous Ones. As things get underway, the picture becomes clearer. The Fabulous Ones greatly outclass Raschke and the Sheik put Precious gives Jimmy the edge over Ron. We get a quick succession of tags, enough to showcase a little bit of each combination of opponents.

The finish comes when Misty Blue Simmes rushes down to the ringside area to confront Precious, after one too many distractions. The commotion draws Jimmy’s attention away from the Sheik who, instead, has to settle for tagging in Raschke.

The Baron is nowhere near one hundred percent, having taken quite a beating earlier, and proves to be no match for Stan Lane.

Ron Garvin, Steve Keirn & Stan Lane defeat Jimmy Garvin, Baron Von Raschke & the Sheik in 13:11 when Stan Lane pins Baron Von Raschke after a savate kick

After a brief video package, advertising next week’s match between Nelson Royal and “the Lone Star”, we cut to a commercial break.

When we return, the steel cage has been set up and the next match’s participants are in the ring. Sam Houston and Nelson Royal cannot conceal their nervousness, and even Kevin Sullivan betrays the slightest hint of vulnerability but “the Purple Haze” is totally unfazed.

“the Fallen Angel” is at ringside, though she does little more than cheer-lead for the bulk of the match.

The match is rough and nasty, with each man getting his face raked against the cage at one time or another. The match is very competitive, with both teams regularly trading dominance but Nelson Royal is the clear weak link. “the Purple Haze”, meanwhile, is a monster, seeming to come alive within the confines of the cage.

The Army of Darkness might have even won cleanly but “the Fallen Angel” leaves nothing to chance and supplies her master with a pair of brass knuckles, passed easily through the steel mesh.

With his partner beaten, bloodied and exhausted, Sam Houston cannot overcome the odds and, after a nasty crack across the head from Sullivan, “the Purple Haze” restrains him to allow his leader to pick up the win.

After a commercial break, we’re left with our main event. It’s a feel-good affair, with the faces on top, some great action and an apoplectic Jim Cornette at ringside.

Really enjoyed all the great details in this show!  Giving the ring special colors will make NWA Houston stand out to all of the viewers around the country.

I give you a lot of credit.  You have Kevin Sullivan down pretty good.  He is one of my favorites of all time and I have had him on my roster in a few games and I can never do him justice.  Awesome job!

Thanks for your help getting Baby Bull over.  Another thing I struggle at is developing newer guys and you seem to be knocking it out of the park.  

Such high quality matches from top to bottom.  Viewers would be locked in each week!

Wrestling from the Sam Houston Coliseum – Episode No. 7 – 12th of May 1985 – Airing Live on KHTV 39 Gold

Advertised Match:

Sam Houston versus Harley Race

The programme starts with our new television champion and his first opponent in the ring. The Baby Bull puts on an extremely impressive display, vanquishing the opposition in less than a minute.

“Baby Bull” Leon White defeats a local talent in 00:49 by pinfall after a sit-out powerbomb to retain the HS Television Championship

Pat Patterson, a recent enemy of White but also the man behind the creation of the title and chairman of its match-making committee, comes down to the ring after the match, flanked by his Takano bodyguards.

Pat offers the new champ a handshake. White milks the moment as much as possible but eventually decides to extend his hand. It proves to be a mistake, however, as Patterson maintains his grip long enough for George Takano to crack White across the back with a steel chair.

Once Leon is sufficiently beaten down, Tojo Yamamoto makes an appearance and, with the aid of the Takano brothers, delivers a thunderous powerbomb to the barely conscious champion.

We then cut to the back for a brief segment from Paul Boesch.

“Well friends, I’ve got – uh – have we got some news for you? Our women’s champion Velvet McIntyre has recently informed the championship committee that she would like to defend her belt ahead of her scheduled match with Debbie Combs on the 26th. Next week, she will be giving Winona Little Heart a shot at the bronze.

Now – uh – last get back to more wrestling action.”

The next match is a heel showcase, with shine for each member of the trio of bad guys against three unfortunate souls.

Dory Funk, Jr. & Baron Von Raschke & the Sheik defeat a local team in 09:34

We cut to a commercial break and return in time for some more championship action.

Said championship action is a battle of the Royals, as Nelson Royal takes on the former Gary Royal – no relation – now known as “the Lone Star”. Unfortunately for Nelson, the Army of Darkness is no longer interested in staying on Paul Boesch’s good side and comes out in force.

Nelson Royal puts in a valiant effort but it is nowhere near good enough to overcome interreference and distractions galore from Sullivan and his minions.

“the Lone Star” defeats Nelson Royal in 12:22 by pinfall after a German suplex to retain the NWA Texas Junior Heavyweight Championship

After the match, Sullivan’s army decides to take liberties with Nelson Royal and attempts a beatdown. Sam Houston rushes down, along with Tony Garea and Rene Goulet to make the save. The confrontation is a short but nasty affair that leaves Houston with a limp.

Houston has enough time as the following commercial break allows to recover.

His opponent in the main event, one Harley Race – accompanied by Larry Zbyszko – has clearly taken notice and spends a good portion of the match punishing Sam’s weakened leg. The match is competitive, but the edge goes to Race throughout especially since, having just come off the back of an intense match himself, Nelson is unable to effectively neutralise Zbyszko’s influence.

Awesome main event.  Sam Houston continues his rise to the top here in defeat.  No shame at all in going down to Race in 14 minutes with an injured leg.  

I am really liking your use of Kevin Sullivan.  He is the perfect leader of a heel faction in any promotion during the territory days! 

That was one evil team... Dory, Baron and The Sheik.  They could really cause some chaos in a lights out, unsanctioned match against some top heels.  Paul Boesch might be in for a big payday.

Baby Bull is going to have to lose that nickname if he keep crushing people!  No more Baby!

I think you got Houston wrestling down pat!  Thanks for another fun show.

Wrestling from the Sam Houston Coliseum – Episode No. 8 “The Gauntlet” – 19th of May 1985 – Airing Live on KHTV 39 Gold

Advertised Match:

“Baby Bull” Leon White versus “the Purple Haze” for the NWA Texas Heavyweight Championship and the HS Television Championship

The show opens with a brief speech from Paul Boesch.

“Friends, it brings me great pleasure to introduce to you a night of championship wrestling we are calling “the Gauntlet”. We’ll be seeing two title for title matches and we’ll be pushing some of our champions to the limit. This is all in anticipation of next week’s – uh – “Legendary Showdown” and the – um – the return of the cage.”

We cut to the opening match for the six-man title. The newly formed trio of Dory Funk, Jr., Baron Von Raschke and the Sheik take the champions to the limit, taking liberties wherever possible. In the end, however, the power of the bull prevails.

“Baby Bull” Leon White & Mark Youngblood & Jay Youngblood defeat Dory Funk, Jr. & Baron Von Raschke & the Sheik in 13:03 when “Baby Bull” Leon White pins Baron Von Raschke after a sit-out powerbomb to retain the NWA Texas Six Man Tag Team Championship

We cut to a commercial break and return for the women’s match that will serve as a much-needed break for the Youngbloods. “the Purple Haze” will not receive the same courtesy.

More of an angle than a match, Velvet McIntyre dominates Winona Little Heart in what looks like a throwaway match until Debbie Combs storms to the ring and pulls the champion out. McIntyre takes a nasty spill to the outside and Combs follows up with a series of stomps.

Little Heart responds to these scenes and comes to her opponent’s defence, getting a few licks in on Combs before a swarm of officials descends upon all three women. Once the chaos has died down, the participants in our third match make their way to the ring.

The western states tag champions go up against the Texas tag champions in what initially proves to be a ferocious match. The Youngbloods are certainly not operating at one hundred percent but they still prove to be far more of a challenge than the Army of Darkness were expecting.

A few near falls, facilitated by “the Fallen Angel” and “the Lone Star”, tease the conclusion most hoped for by Sullivan. In the end, however, after witnessing a bit too much abuse coming the way of “the Purple Haze”, Kevin Sullivan decides to pick up his ball and go home.

The Youngbloods (Jay Youngblood & Mark Youngblood) defeat Kevin Sullivan & “the Purple Haze” in 08:48 by count out and retain the NWA Western States Tag Team Championship but the NWA Texas Tag Team Championship does not change hands

We cut to a commercial break, which serves as the only respite for “the Purple Haze”, before our main event.

From the off, it is a lumberjack match for all intents and purposes. The Youngbloods are in White’s corner, whereas the Haze has all of his stable mates in his. As the match progresses, White’s Japanese enemies, led by Pat Patterson, come to bolster the forces of the Army of Darkness, only to be met by reinforcements from the face side; Sam Houston, Nelson Royal, Tony Garea and Rene Goulet.

The brutality within the ring, with Leon White and “the Purple Haze” laying into one another, is soon matched on the outside, with a chaotic and bloody brawl that officials prove totally unable to contain. Thankfully, the brawling keeps interference to a minimum, though the finish is predictably indecisive.

“Baby Bull” Leon White and “the Purple Haze” draw in 15:00 when the match’s time limit expires and neither the HS Television Championship nor the NWA Texas Heavyweight Championship change hands

When the cameras cut off, the brawl is still going on.

Very well booked!  A huge card that does not give to much away  before next's week Legendary Showdown.  With two title for title matches, I was hooked from the beginning and in the end I am leaving thinking that was an awesome TV show but in reality for NWA Houston, it just added to next week's card!  

Liking the trio of Dory, Baron and the Sheik.  I could almost see some riots happening in the stands on a hot Texas night after they cause some sort of havoc.  

Youngbloods vs Sullivan and Purple Haze is a great bout!  Such a contrast in styles but they would have bumped and sold all over the place for each other.  

I am beginning to think I wish I had one of this one city promotions.  GIves you such an opportunity to progress story lines in a way that would keep your audience on the edge of their seats

Wrestling from the Sam Houston Coliseum – Episode No. 9 “Legendary Showdown IV” – 26th of May 1985 – Airing Live on KHTV 39 Gold

Advertised Match:

Terry Funk versus Barry Windham for the NWA Western States Heavyweight Championship

LEGENDARY SHOWDOWN IV

We open with a brief shot of the crowd and the empty ring, replete with its gold ropes and yellow apron, before we cut to the backstage with Paul Boesch.

“Hello again, friends, and welcome to our fourth Show – uh – our fourth Legendary Showdown. Before we can hold the twelve-man cage match I’m sure we’re – uh – you’re all waiting to see, it’s the – we’ve – uh – we’ve got to have our scheduled junior heavyweight title contest.

To ensure a fair outcome, I have barred every other participant in the cage match from ringside on penalty of being removed from the match. I have also ban – uh – taken the decision to bar “the Fallen Angel” from the arena tonight. Now, without – uh – let’s get to the action.”

The opening contest is a rematch from two weeks ago, “the Lone Star” against Nelson Royal. Without any interference from the Army of Darkness, the match proves to be far more even than that encounter, however.

The two men go to toe to toe, matching each other hold for hold, and they both, presumably in anticipation of the cage match, decide to take very few risks. The finish, therefore, is unfortunately quite predictable.

“the Lone Star” and Nelson Royal draw in 15:00 when the match’s time limit expires, and the NWA Texas Junior Heavyweight Championship does not change hands

After a commercial break, we return for our second of three championship rematches. Leon White takes on Tojo Yamamoto in hard-hitting brawl. Pat Patterson, along with his Takano bodyguards, spends the match taunting White and becomes increasingly frustrated the longer the match drags on.

Initially receptive to Pat’s constant calls of “put him away!”, “knock him out!” and “finish it!”, Tojo eventually becomes fed up with his manager and scowls at him in response. It becomes evident that Tojo simply cannot compete with the Baby Bull and he fails to recapture his title, to Pat’s obvious frustration.

“Baby Bull” Leon White defeats Tojo Yamamoto in 13:03 by pinfall after a sit-out powerbomb to retain the HS Television Championship

After White leaves, Tojo confronts Pat, screaming at him in Japanese. The Takanos trying to calm him down but only succeed in convincing him to back down from outright hitting Pat. Yamamoto storms to the back, leaving a flustered and confused Pat Patterson muttering something inaudible.

We cut to another commercial break. We return to a shot of Debbie Combs’ face, angry eyes and a clenched jaw, as she watches Velvet McIntyre enter the ring. The match plays out much like the latter half of their previous encounter, with a vicious Combs playing dirty from the outset.

McIntyre does not have much of an answer for this and sets most of the match on the backfoot, becoming exhausted far sooner than Combs.

Once the two ladies have left the ring, we stick around to see the cage being put up for a few moments before cutting to a commercial break.

We return just in time for the opening bell of the big one. On the face side, we have; Sam Houston, Nelson Royal, Tony Garea, Rene Goulet and the Youngbloods. On the heel side, we have; Kevin Sullivan, “the Purple Haze”, “the Lone Star”, Dory Funk, Jr., Baron Von Raschke and the Sheik.

A savage brawl erupts almost immediately. Rene Goulet and Baron Von Raschke are quickly identified as weak links by their respective opponents and the two get colour within five minutes. By the time we get to a commercial break, almost all of the participants are bloodied up and very sweaty.

We return to troubling scenes, as Tony Garea, Mark Youngblood and Nelson Royal have been knocked down and their partners are fighting a losing battle.

The tides seem to change, however, Sam Houston goes for a desperation move and knocks Raschke and the Sheik down with the double clothesline. Sullivan responds to this quickly and cunningly, however, directing traffic towards his endgame strategy.

The Haze pins Houston’s arms behind his back and Sullivan and Star smack Jay Youngblood around, trying to keep him busy as much as anything. Funk is then left to go in for the kill on Goulet, who holds on for an admirable length of time, nevertheless.

Kevin Sullivan & “the Purple Haze” & “the Lone Star” & Dory Funk, Jr. & Baron Von Raschke & the Sheik defeat Sam Houston & Nelson Royal & Tony Garea & Rene Goulet & Mark Youngblood & Jay Youngblood in 28:52 when Dory Funk, Jr. submits Rene Goulet with a cloverleaf

After the officials have evacuated the cage, we get a brief promotional video for next week’s tag title bout, promising that the Army of Darkness will take on the Takanos.

Our main event comes after another commercial break, with Terry Funk taking on Barry Windham. The match is a wild brawl, with numerous trips to the outside, though it is nowhere near as bloody as the previous match.

Tough competitive, the match seems to be heading Funk’s way until the arrival of an injured and enraged Dusty Rhodes. Without getting physical, the American Dream takes Terry off his game and gives Windham an opening.

Now I would be hooked for life after watching that event on TV. 

I really enjoy how you write up Paul Boesch stammering around the microphone!

Basically every match on your card was better then anything I saw on TV as a kid.

Like how Goulet took the loss in the big steel cage match as it kept everyone else strong.

I think Windham is a perfect choice for the Western States Title. He can do it all and will step up to any type of match that you set up for him.
