Great show for the fans of Boston.  You did a great job of writing up the Steel Cage Match.  It was so vivid!

I like how you had the mixed reaction to Piper.  Eventually, one side will come to their right minds.  It will be a fun, wild ride getting to see which one was eventually right.

Was good to have a few of those guys pre-scheduled off for the Sunday show in Springfield, after pulling a double shot in Philly and Boston! 

I'm a nerd for little things like that, lol.

TV: Superstars of Wrestling - Saturday 2/27

image.jpeg.177d3e23c0dba81768780cffa3ab9dce.jpeg

(London, ON @ London Gardens: TAPING #2. Gorilla Monsoon & Jesse Ventura on commentary)


[OPEN] to the customary dramatic WWF logo-in-space opener, with the colored galactic lasers galvanizing the logo to its dazzling golden hue, as the echoing voice bellows “The World Wrestling Federation. The revolutionary force in sports-entertainment”.

[CUT] to the opening credits package, set to “1999” by Prince as the audio underlay, featuring footage of Hulk Hogan walking the MSG hallway, then rapid-fire in-ring action flashes of the roster of stars, Hogan vs. Schultz @ MSG mixed in, and intercutting ecstatic sellout crowd shots, etc. Final dramatic shot of Hogan mid-double-bicep-pose during the emotional title-win celebration at MSG.

[FILTER] into the rocking mid-sized arena! Gorilla Monsoon & Jesse Ventura are standing at the commentary platform. Both are fired-up for the scorching, earth-moving hour in store for all of us!


Mean Gene Okerlund in the ring: The hot crowd’s already on its feet. Gene says it’s time for 2 very important principles, in 1 of the feature matches at Survivor Series, to come into the arena & designate their surrogates. Intros Bob Backlund, who slowly walks the aisle in a tweed 3-piece suit, with his nose in the air. He stops to glare at the thundering, heated crowd, before getting into the ring & staring a silent hole through Gene. 

“Still of the Night” by Whitesnake hits & the place ERUPTS! Out comes Kerry Von Erich in jeans & button-down shirt, striding the aisle with purpose as the place comes unglued! Backlund seems a bit on-edge, as Kerry slides into the ring. 

As the music dies, Gene tells Backlund the floor is his. Backlund complains that this ordeal is mainly the fault of all these plebians in the first place, who bask in immorality & idolatry - that man’s (Kerry) middle name. Crowd booing huge & Kerry is pacing, not even looking in Backlund’s direction. 

Backlund says his quest to bring self-respect back into the fabric of America & exorcise the Von Erich demons is the reason for his campaign against the partisan Front Office, and the reason he’s going to exorcise Americana from the spawn of Satan who stands before us all. Says his chosen surrogate for this affair will soundly defeat Von Erich’s surrogate with ease, because his surrogate… is none other than Olympian & former I-C Champion, Ken Patera! Place erupting & Kerry stops in his tracks, impressed. Backlund’s nearly cackling as he brims with confidence. 

Kerry grins to himself, then steps toward Gene & Backlund backs away. Kerry says Backlund made an impressive choice, despite being the resident head case of the WWF. Says Backlund has caused enough hardship, enough disarray, too many innocent people caught in the crossfire of his aimless mental gymnastics. Says he, himself, has suffered great loss from it as well & he goes to bed every night reliving it in his mind. 

Kerry says there is a remedy for that; 1 part that plays out right here this week & the other that plays out at Survivor Series in 2 weeks, when Backlund finally gets his date with destiny. Says his surrogate is perfect for a moment like this - someone who goes to bed every night, feeling the same sense of loss as Kerry does. The same loss that Backlund caused at Fall Classic. Someone who personifies ‘champion’ every bit as much as Ken Patera - none other than his flesh & blood, Kevin Von Erich! Place comes unglued!! Gene’s mouth is hung open & Kerry’s staring darts through a speechless Backlund! 

Kerry looks at the crowd & says “Let’s rock & roll, come on!”, leaving the ring & heading up the aisle with a fist in the air! Crowd going nuts! Backlund’s now pacing, hands on hips in the ring, lecturing off-mic to no one. Gene stares at Backlund & sits the mic down, leaving the ring. Backlund coming apart at the seams & bubbling over as he lectures ghosts. Crowd taunting him.


[WWF Update: Set to “No Parking On the Dance Floor” by Midnight Star as the audio intro. Lord Alfred is in the newsroom. He’s on-fire about the announcement last week, making official the Hulk Hogan vs. Masa Saito WWF Heavyweight Title match at Survivor Series. Says we’ll be hearing from the Champion later on in this very hour. Kicks us to a pre-recorded promo from outside Fuji’s compound in a woodsy Japanese forest. Mr. Fuji & a silent Saito stand out front. Fuji’s at his sadistic best, cackling that they gave all of the world nightmares. He shows us footage of Saito Bonsai-Throat-Clawing a helpless Hulk Hogan into oblivion at SNME, as the Samoan Headhunters watched in glee. Hogan, mouth bloodied, lay broken & lifeless on the mat. Fuji says the myth of Hulkamania is over & Saito is the “shimin” warrior of the WWF who made the kill. Says he will behead the dead Hulkamania & place the headpiece right inside, in a special place on the trophy wall of Master Fuji’s compound. Fuji cackles wildly & Saito snarls with a teeth-gritting “ssssssss” at the camera with a death-blow pose, as the promo ends. Alfred ends the segment, with “Relax Go To It” by Frankie Goes to Hollywood as the audio outro.]


Commercial

[During the commercial break, a market-specific ad airs in the PHILADELPHIA area hyping WWF action returning to the Spectrum on Friday 3/26 @ 8 PM. Visual shows the starry moving-through-space motion graphic & Mean Gene’s voice hyping the card, including Rick Martel vs. Brutus Beefcake, Tag Team Champs Samu/Fatu vs. The Fantastics, Big John Studd vs. Andre the Giant, and a main event of Rick Rude/Masa Saito vs. Hulk Hogan/Paul Orndorff!]


Back from commercial...

[Back from commercial, WE see Bob Backlund calmly strategizing with Ken Patera in the locker room. Patera’s nodding & reassures Backlund, before leaving the locker room with a bottled water. WE then see a separate locker room with the Von Erich brothers strategizing. Kerry’s arm is around Kevin as they exchange ideas. They hug & Kevin heads out of the locker room, with Kerry pumping his fist to himself in confidence.]


MAIN EVENT: Ken Patera vs. Kevin Von Erich

“I Love America” by Alice Cooper hits & Patera smugly comes down to a thunderous round of boos. He gets into the ring, smugly taunting the crowd. “Still of the Night” by Whitesnake hits & the place goes nuts, as Kevin parades his way to the ring to a deafening ovation! 

[WE see Kerry and Backlund each watching this on monitors from their respective locker rooms.]

A kinetic barn-burner of a seesaw match, as the crowd hung on every move, knowing what’s at stake. Early hot flurry from Kevin with dropkicks, inverted armdrags, leg-trip, and a series of headlock takedowns that has the place going nuts! Kevin maintains headlock control on the mat. Patera rolls him over for a few 2-counts, but Kevin torques back over, still in form control of the headlock.

A fast-and-furious chain wrestling clinic breaks out between them with a rapid-fire flurry of counters that ends in Patera catching Kevin’s leg on a roundhouse kick attempt & planting him with a capture-T-bone suplex! Kevin’s body implodes on impact! Patera gets up, knowing he owns the moment now.

Patera smugly uses explosive, methodical offense to take Kevin apart; flurry of different suplexes, throwing Kevin around like a rag doll, measured roundhouses & stomps that crumble Kevin down in the corner, etc. Patera’s smugly taunting the crowd about his current dominance.

[WE see Backlund rubbing his hands together in eager satisfaction as he paces in his locker room, watching this on the monitor.]

Patera cuts off several comeback flurry attempts by Kevin, grounding that airplane repeatedly with clotheslines or a belly-to-belly suplex. Kevin’s in trouble! Patera drops a running knee-drop that jolts Kevin on impact. Patera hooks the leg for the 1… 2… Kevin kicks out! Patera slaps on a reverse chinlock, as the crowd rumbles in encouragement for Kevin!

[WE see Kerry watching this on the monitor in his locker room, arms folded & quietly urging Kevin on.]

Kevin’s fading in that reverse chinlock! Ref finally raises his arm once… it drops. Raises it again… a jolt of lightning ignites Kevin & he’s full of fight again! He struggles his way up to his feet as Patera hangs on for dear life! Kevin elbows to the gut repeatedly, to break the hold! Kevin’s a house of fire now, with dropkicks, flying head-scissors all over the place, clotheslines, backdrops, etc. The house it coming down!

Kevin rares back & lunges in the for CLAWWW!!...... Patera’s blocking it desperately! Patera drops & slings him barreling into the ref!! Ref sent tumbling thru the ropes to the floor, barely conscious from the collision! In the ring, Kevin ducks a Patera clothesline & they end up double-clotheslining each other down! Both men down & seemingly out!

Suddenly…… crowd shoots to its feet in stunned shock as…… THAT’S THE IRON SHEIK CALMLY WALKING THE AISLE! HE HASN’T BEEN SEEN SINCE NOVEMBER! He gets to ringside, slides into the ring & walks around like a caged animal, eyeballing both fallen combatants. He aggressively drags Patera aside, then flips Kevin onto his belly. Sheik then… slaps on the Camel Clutch on Kevin!!! Place going nuts in thundering heat!! Sheik is fully cinched in, pulling for all it’s worth!! Kevin is being snapped in two!!

[Backstage, WE see Kerry walking with a head of steam, walking the hallway, heading for the arena! He turns the corner & gets BLINDSIDED from behind by Backlund! Backlund’s stomping him down like a madman! A bunch of nearby officials rush onto the scene to break it up. Kerry pops back up amidst the scrum & unloads on Backlund! Brawl!]

Sheik’s still stretching Kevin to Kingdom Come in that Camel Clutch before finally releasing the hold & standing tall over the broken Von Erich!! Sheik puts his hand on his hips & obnoxiously spits on the back of the fallen Kevin! He then strikes his hands-on-hips chesty pose for the booing crowd. He steps over the corpse, as Patera watches in pleasure from his seat down in the corner. Sheik exits the ring & heads up the aisle to building-rocking heat!! He came right for Kevin Von Erich!! The hell was this about!!??

Patera slowly crawls out of the corner, toward the broken Kevin as…… CROWD EXPLODES!!!...... Here comes Tito Santana sprinting through the crowd in street clothes & sunglasses!! He agilely hops the railing & slides into the ring behind Patera!! Tito stomps a mudhole in Patera!! Place is shaking!! Tito mounts him, pounding away with roundhouses!! They’re rolling around on the mat now!! They brawl up to their feet. Patera reverses a whip to the ropes… Tito ducks a Patera clothesline & comes off the other side…… FLATTENS PATERA WITH THE FLYING FOREARM!! PATERA’S TOAST!! TITO ANGRILY CRAWLS OVER PATERA, TAUNTING HIM, THEN ROLLS OUT! He puts his shades back on & heads up the aisle to a hero’s sendoff!!

In the ring, Kevin slowly begins to stir!! He instinctively rolls over, ever-so-slowly!! He weakly lays an arm across Patera… the groggy ref slowly rolls back in!!...... Crawls over…… 1…… 2…… 3!!! Crowd jumps out of its skin all over the building!!! “Still of the Night” hits & Kevin uses the ropes to pull himself up.

Here comes Kerry down the aisle & happily slides into the ring, helping his brother the rest of the way up. Kerry props him up against the ropes & the brothers hug emotionally. Kerry raises Kevin’s arm in victory to the ecstatic crowd!! Patera is still prone, groggy, on the canvas. 

Kevin gingerly slinks thru the ropes to the floor, as Kerry rolls out & helps him up the aisle, wading through the arms of adoring fans.

Winner: Kevin Von Erich @ 12:22 via Pinfall; Kerry Von Erich Gains Stipulation Power    


Commercial


[Back from commercial, WE see a 60-second dramatic vignette highlighting the Saito & Samoan Headhunter wolfpack-style dismantling of Hulk Hogan 2 weeks ago at Saturday Night’s Main Event. Video turns black & white, as it closes on a bloody-mouthed Hulk Hogan being helped out, choking on his own blood, etc.]

[WWF Event Center shown in the NEW YORK CITY area only - set to “Thriller” by Michael Jackson as the audio intro. Mean Gene hypes TONIGHT, Saturday 2/27, as the triumphant return to the Big Apple for scorching hot action & excitement at Madison Square Garden! He recaps the big 9-match card, including a double-main event of Big John Studd vs. Andre the Giant and ‘Superstar’ Billy Graham vs. King Kong Bundy in a Steel Cage! Sting/Fantastics vs. Valentine/British Bulldogs in a 6-Man grudge match, Tito Santana defends the I-C Title vs. Masa Saito, Ken Patera vs. George ‘The Animal’ Steele. The massive frame of Andre the Giant in street clothes comes into frame & happily rests his hand on Gene’s shoulder. Says John Studd is a big man, but he’s a bigger man. Says Roddy Piper is a couple weeks away from being a buried man. Says both have been running around, giving trouble to everybody around here. But tonight, Studd has to be shown who the giant is around here. Says tonight in New York, he’s gonna chop Studd down to size, until he’s a tinier little man than Piper. Then Piper can run back to Scotland until his number’s up in a couple weeks at Survivor Series. Gene happily ends the segment with an event hard sell, as Andre laughs at the camera. “You Can Go Your Own Way” by Fleetwood Mac is the audio outro.]


Back to the arena…

Sam Houston debuts, defeating Rex McGuire with a running bulldog. Great, bright young talent with natural charisma & great interaction with a warmly welcoming crowd. Crisp fundamentals with an explosive, quick finish.

 

[Jesse & Gorilla seated at the broadcast perch. They touch on all the moving parts; the wild ride they witnessed earlier with the big Kevin/Patera match, the shocking return of the Iron Sheik & systematic attack on Kevin, the backstage chaos, the stunning appearance of the I-C Champ Tito Santana that undoubtedly cost Patera the unfair victory. Jesse challenges the notion it would’ve been unfair & Gorilla scoffs at Jesse for it. Both reiterate that Kerry now has the power to name the stipulation for Kerry Von Erich vs. Bob Backlund at Survivor Series in 2 weeks. Jesse says he’s told Kerry will make his pick later on in this very hour! Gorilla then changes gears to hype us for hearing from WWF Heavyweight Champ Hulk Hogan in this hour about his showdown with Saito at Survivor Series. Jesse says, after what happened in Long Island a couple weeks back, Hogan’s probably gonna forfeit the Title to Saito on national TV later on in the hour. Gorilla scoffs at that, reminding Jesse that it was Hogan himself who DEMANDED to put the Title on the line against Saito, after what happened. Jesse says his sources can neither confirm nor deny that rumor. Gorilla says it’s not a rumor - Jack Tunney confirmed it a week ago when he announced that the match had been signed. Jesse said maybe Tunney is simply covering for his World Champ. Gorilla’s eyes roll & he sends us backstage to Mean Gene, who’s on the scene of an apparent commotion.]

[Mean Gene is backstage, outside of a dressing room with Ken Patera’s name plate on it. WE can hear yelling & banging happening behind the door. Gene says there’s apparent bedlam taking place behind that door by one Ken Patera. Says he’s heard the name ‘Santana’ being yelled by Patera multiple times over the past 5 minutes, along with some colorful expletives that Gene says he’s not at liberty to share. Says it would appear that the Tito Santana/Ken Patera rivalry is getting more personal by the second as their 2 Out of 3 Falls I-C Title affair at Survivor Series looms bigger than ever. Says, in the interest of self-preservation, he doesn’t intend to try getting a word with Mr. Patera at this time.]


Commercial


Tag Team Champion Samu/Fatu (w/Mr. Fuji) defeated Red Armstrong/Hex Thomas @ 2 mins with a Fatu splash off the top onto Thomas. Complete collective dismantling of 2 human beings from the opening bell. Post-match, Samu & Fatu get on all-fours, as they customarily do, and proceed to bite & gnaw at Thomas’ face like a rabid pack of hyenas! Thomas flops & flounders in agony as Fuji watches in sheer bliss. The 2 most animal-like of the Samoan Headhunters roll out & follow Fuji up the aisle with the Tag Title belts on their shoulders, seemingly ready to pounce randomly at anything that moves.


[WE see the Iron Sheik silently walking out to the underground parking garage, as Paul Heyman sheepishly follows him out with a mic, seeking to get a word with him about what happened in the arena. Sheik ignores & arrives at a waiting limo whose driver awaits with the back passenger door open. Sheik gets inside, as Heyman continues hurling questions his way - to no avail. Driver gets into the front & the limo pulls out of the parking lot.]


Commercial


George ‘The Animal’ Steele (w/Lou Albano) submitted Gary Hughes with the Armbar to Heaven. Crowd absolutely in love with George, as he heads back up the aisle, rubbing the heads of adoring fans.


[WE see Hulk Hogan in street clothes, standing in the center of the ring in an empty 20,000-seat arena. He says he’s standing in the eye of the storm; the center of the ring right smack-dab in the middle of the Danger Zone. Says Masa Saito has breathed a brand-new kind of inspiration into him, by snatching the breath right out of him. Says it should come as no surprise that Saito would Pearl-Harbor him the way he did, because it’s been Mr. Fuji’s M.O. since the 1940’s & he shouldn’t expect anyone who runs in Fuji’s circles to be any different. Saito has been a Mack truck in the WWF & could’ve simply asked for a shot at a ride on the Hulkamania roller coaster. But instead, Fuji needed to orchestrate a gangland hit on him in front of the whole world. Says he doesn’t take it personal, because he’d need to be disappointed. He knows what Fuji is all about & would expect nothing less. Says the sheer force of those Samoans & the death blow of Saito really rocked his world, and he knows he’s facing a different kind of foe than he’s ever seen. But that’s the very reason he WENT TO Jack Tunney & threw down the gauntlet, ASKING for a piece of Saito Son at Survivor Series. He WANTS this WWF Title on the line in the worst way & says he’d gladly go thru every Headhunter in 1 night, if it meant getting to head-on collide with that Japanese bulldozer at the end of the night. Says Jack Tunney told him that wouldn’t be necessary & sanctioned the Title match on the spot, so Hulkamania can answer the thunder Saito laid down back in Long Island. Said this empty arena is a symbol. Says, if you strip away the 20,000+ Hulkamaniacs, strip away all the cameras & media types, Saito still has to answer for his crimes. Has to step into this ring, 1-on-1, with a man willing to fight to his last breath to defend the honor of his country, his people, his family, and his Title. Says, when that man is the Hulkster, that’s bad news for Saito. When you add the 20,000+ Hulkamaniacs to the equation, that’s worse news for Saito. When you add the fact that it’s a life & death, do-or-die situation where 2 men collide, but only 1 will likely walk away from the cloud of smoke, that’s called THE END for Saito. He tosses the belt down & kneels, saying “Prepare to taste Hulkamania for the first time, Saito! Prepare to taste DEFEAT for the first time, Saito! Hiroshima ain’t got NOTHIN’ on what’s coming for you at Survivor Series, brother!” Does a double side-arms pose, with a snarling “What’cha gonna dooo, Saito, when Hulk Hogan goes BOMBS-AWAY on you!”]


Commercial


[Survivor Series Report: Set to “Don’t Lose My Number” by Phil Collins. Mean Gene is the newsroom. He hypes the big event in East Rutherford on 3/13 & cautions us to stand by for the stipulation announcement from Kerry Von Erich later in the hour. Announces a brand-new Survivor Series Elimination match just added to the card by the WWF Front Office, after what happened last weekend on All-Star Wrestling: Ivan Putski/Ted Arcidi/Killer Bees vs. 4 Samoan Headhunters! He then runs down the existing card as WE see human graphics for each match: the huge WWF Heavyweight Champ Hulk Hogan vs. Masa Saito main event. Kerry Von Erich vs. Bob Backlund. Kicks us to a pre-recorded promo from Roddy Piper, who says Andre has been telling people he’s gonna shut Piper’s big mouth at Survivor Series. Says Andre could rip his head off, throw it in the ocean & Piper would still be talking. Says Andre is 2 weeks away from becoming the centerpiece in pro wrestling’s Smithsonian. Says Piper is the era-changer around here & he hand-picked Andre to build his own legacy. Says Andre’s in a war he can’t win & he’s spent half of this one, asleep. Says it’s how this started & it’s also how it’ll end. Gene then hypes the 2 of 3 Falls I-C Title match. Kicks us to a pre-recorded promo with I-C Champ Tito Santana. Tito says Patera is a no-good dirtbag who showed his colors to the world a while ago & it’s time to get it on for this gold. Says he not only gets to beat him once, but twice! Says Patera thinks he knows what ‘personal’ means, but Tito’s gonna show him what a REAL barrio is like. ‘ARRIBA!’ Gene kicks us to fiery back-to-back promos of Superstar/Sting/Fantastics and the Heenan Family about their war of survival. Gene then sends us to rambunctious back-to-back promos Orndorff/Martel/Morales/Bellomo and RickRude/John Studd/Don Muraco/Brutus Beefcake. Gene hard-sells the event one last time, as “Never Too Much” by Luther Vandross is the audio outro.]


Back in the arena...

Brutus Beefcake defeated Art Cunningham with a running high knee. Post-match male striptease-like gyrations that get a rise out of the female contingent.

Back from commercial…

The Killer Bees defeated Randy White/Seth Brown with a double-dropkick on Brown. 


[Mean Gene in the locker room with Kevin Von Erich, who’s now in street clothes. Kevin says he’s glad he got the huge win for his brother, who’s now in the driver’s seat with the match against Backlund @ the Meadowlands. Says that win this week might’ve come easier for him, but a certain someone saw fit to choose him to come after. Says the Iron Sheik is apparently back on the scene & he didn’t need to keep it a secret - he would happily welcome him back, himself. Says he hears Sheik got in a limo & rode off, like nothing happened. Says, for Sheik’s sake, he better hope that limo takes him to the moon. Anything less, Kevin says he’s gonna run him down & give him the welcome-back party he deserves - over & over again.]

Sting/Fantastics vs. Valentine/British Bulldogs in a 6-Man grudge match, Tito Santana defends the I-C Title vs. Masa Saito, Ken Patera vs. George ‘The Animal’ Steele. King Kong Bundy comes into frame. Smugly says Billy Graham is downright adorable, thinking he’s even making it to Survivor Series, considering what’s going down tonight. Said he’d snap him in 2 in a normal match, but to think somebody thought it’d be a good idea to erect a 15-foot high cage in the center of MSG, he’s not only gonna snap Billy Graham in 2, but he’s gonna use that steel as a human cheese grater. Says Billy Graham can make a will now & name a new captain now for his team @ Survivor Series, cuz he’s head for the permanent residency wing of Cedar Sinai in NYC to eat meals through a straw for the rest of his days. Gene ends the segment with an event hard sell, as Bundy broods & rubs his hands together as he grunts at the camera. “New York, New York” by Sinatra is the audio outro.]


Back inside…

Bob Backlund storms down the aisle, to monster boos. Why is he here now!? It’s not his announcement to make! He angrily gets into the ring & gets the mic.

Backlund (pacing nervously): What transpired earlier in this event was the prime example of the systemic conspiracy that the powers that be, here in the World Wrestling Federation, are waging against my quest for righteousness & integrity being restored in this depraved society… and in this growingly corrupt organization. 

[Boos are reaching a fever pitch. Backlund’s stunned.]

Backlund (cont’d): Once again, Kerrith is given a clear path to ease & advantage, whereby he now is awarded the power to name a sure-to-be-slanted stipulation to our contest at Survivor Series! If it were me, I’d be selecting a fair & even stipulation, intended to highlight the talents of BOTH combatants! (Crowd scoffing) But I know that young Kerrith lacks the integrity & self-confidence to do such a thing! He’s emblematic of EVERYTH---

“Still of the NIght” by Whitesnake hits & the PLACE COMES UNGLUED!!! Backlund’s face drops with dread!! Kerry confidently comes down the aisle to a raucous ovation, hi-fiving fans on the way & his eyes locked on the ring as he walks!! He gets to ringside, up the steps & into the ring. Backlund rolls out to the floor in retreat. Kerry jaws his way, then picks up the mic & walks around the ring, taking in the massive ovation!! Backlund’s dismayed by all this, fearful of what he might hear. Song fades…

Kerry: Fair & even stipulation, you say? Backlund, you’re so full of it, it’s even coming outta your pores. I can smell the stench from here! (Place rocking! Backlund jawing in protest) I got just the stipulation, fitting a fight like this one. And ‘fight’ is EXACTLY what this is, Backlund. All the months of BS, the months of running rampant you been doin’, the hell you been makin’ for everybody… nope. I got your receipt for ALL of that, Bob. I got a stipulation, not only the WORLD wants to see, but the stipulation you’ve EARNED. (climbs on the 2nd turnbuckle above Backlund below on the floor) For Survivor Series, I got THREE WORDS FOR YA! (looks out at the crowd, then back down at Backlund) … TEXAS… DEATH… MATCH!

Place blows the roof off!!!! Backlund’s face freezes!!!! Kerry stands tall, looking down at the speechless Backlund below!!! Kerry tosses the mic, but keeps his eyes locked on Backlund. 

“Still of the Night” hits again. Backlund snaps out of his shocked daze & storms for the aisle! Kerry gets down off the turnbuckle & interacts with the rabid crowd! The showdown at Survivor Series just went to a whole new level!!

What a main event! Twists and turns as Iron Sheik and Tito get involved along with Backlund attacking Kerrith in the back. I had no clue how this was going to end. Kevin gets the win and Kerrith gets the stipulation. Awesome story. 

Saito is such a great heel for Hogan. I've been looking forward to this showdown and can't wait to watch it at the Survivor Series. Both men are ready for war.

Man the Survivor Series is loaded! So many main event type matches. The build has been a wild ride and we're going to get some amazing pay offs. 

Kerrith picks a Texas Death match! How fitting. Backlund is nuts but this match is right up Kerry's alley. I know these guys are going to get crazy. 

As AD said, bring on the Survivor Series!!!!

TV: All-Star Wrestling - Saturday 2/20

image.jpeg.c33b0eb02466a6ad48b12f51c2618229.jpeg

(Binghamton, NY @ Broome County Arena: TAPING #2. Vine McMahon & Jack Reynolds on commentary.)

 

[Opening Credits package plays. WE then filter into the building with a lively crowd. Vince & Jack are at the commentary platform.]  


[David Schultz smugly heads to the ring in street clothes & in a sullen mood, as the crowd’s unloading on him. He says he’s the uncrowned WWF Heavyweight Champion - which ignites the crowd & pisses him off worse. Says, after he was robbed blind of getting his Title back from that cheater, ‘Thunderlips’, he got snuck by the rat-faced BOY of a relic Schultz put out to pasture. Says David Sammartino is the mud under his boots & he’s worth maybe 1 half-day at the office for Schultz. So he’s giving David 1 chance to live out his little cartoon hero fantasy & then Schultz is washing his hands of it. Says Bruno is a memory & that’s the reality the grown folks are living. Says 'Lil David' gets 1 shot at his teenage fantasy to be his old man. Says it’s his lucky day, because Schultz is gonna make sure David ends up just LIKE his daddy. David Sammartino comes down in street clothes, nostrils flaring. Place cheering him on! He grabs a mic & stands on the top ring step. Says Schultz & all of his cousin-kissin’ family combined couldn’t hold his dad’s jockstrap. Place goes nuts! Says he promised to be a fire-breathing dragon who’d defend his father’s honor. “Well bring your fireman suit, you guttersnipe! No time like the present. Just show me where to sign!” He tosses the mic & walks up the aisle, to a big ovation. Schultz is laughing leisurely in the corner.]

Sting/Fantastics (w/Billy Graham) defeated Homer Givens/Ted Armstrong/John Sawwood. Explosive offense, with a crowd coming unglued for almost every move. End came when both Fantastics used Sting as a Rocket Launcher on Givens. 

[Lord Alfred Hayes in the hallway: Announces that the match has just been signed & is slated to happen during this very hour - David Schultz vs. David Sammartino!]

"Ravishing" Rick Rude (w/Jimmy Hart) defeated Petey Tarino with a Rude Awakening. Rude's Survivor Series teammates join Jimmy Hart at ringside & cheer their captain on as he takes Tarino apart.

[Two director chairs in the ring, which is now adorned in red carpet. ‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper & Big John Studd come to the ring, to a monster heated reaction. Piper & Studd sit leisurely as Piper says they’re a couple weeks away from a guy losing 2/3 of his name. “It’s not every day that a guy loses ‘The Giant’ & gets stuck with just ‘Andre’ from now on”, says Piper. Studd says Andre’s not even that tall. “Last time I saw him, he was maybe 6’4, tops.” Piper says sometimes Andre has been as low as 3 feet tall, especially when he’s put him to sleep. Says Survivor Series marks the swan song of a big man with a big head & a big reputation forged out of folklore & exaggeration. Says he’ll show the world that Andre’s just a guy & that Fate has summoned Piper to show everyone it's not so tough after all to slay a phony giant. Says, since he'll be the one to take ‘The Giant’ out of Andre’s name, he’ll wear it like a coat & start calling himself ‘Piper the Giant’. Piper & Studd finally stroll away in smug self-satisfaction, to a heated sendoff.]

‘Magnificent’ Muraco defeated Pedro Morales with a schoolboy & feet on the ropes. Real snot-kicker of a seesaw battle that ended up spilling to the outside multiple times, before Muraco caught Pedro out of nowhere with the flash pinfall. Muraco staggered for the hills as Pedro gave half-hearted chase.

[‘Superstar’ Billy Graham vs. Greg ‘The Hammer’ Valentine is announced as next week’s main event.]

 

Main Event: 'Dr. D' David Schultz vs. David Sammartino

Sammartino pounces on Schultz right away as Schultz comes down the aisle. Sammartino unleashes all the livid venom he's got! He houses Schultz all over ringside like a madman, before tosses him into the ring. 

Schultz quickly pounces as Sammartino’s getting into the ring & stomps him into oblivion. Schultz rag-dolls him from pillar to post now, yelling “I’M A DAMN GROWN MAN, SON!” & “HERE I AM - MAKE ME PAY, BOY!” repeatedly as he begins slapping him around to add insult. Schultz is overwhelming him now, aggressively dismantling him with impactful offense.

Sammartino’s using Schultz’s leg to try to pull himself up & Schultz continually slaps him around, daring him to give him a fight. Sammartino headbutts him in the groin! Schultz, in pain still, hits the ropes & levels him with a running knee strike. “Bruno” chants abound.

Schultz leisurely taunts the crowd as he hops on the 2nd turnbuckle & nails Sammartino with the big elbow. Sammartino’s done, but Schultz refuses to cover him! Schultz then piledrives him!... And again! Sammartino’s a dead fish. 

Schultz rolls out & grabs the mic, getting back into the ring. He hovers over Sammartino, telling him he failed his old man just like he expected. He then CLOBBERS the unconscious Sammartino with the mic & the ref calls for the bell. Schultz then piledrives Sammartino onto the mic! Sammartino’s quivering involuntarily on the mat like a fish out of water!

Place EXPLODES!!!... as here comes Sgt. Slaughter to ringside!! He slides into the ring & Schultz rolls out in shock! Slaughter kneels to check on young Sammartino & calls toward the back for help. Schultz cackles wildly outside. Several officials arrive & slowly roll young Sammartino out. Slaughter carefully stays with him & helps them carry Sammartino toward the aisle.

Schultz rolls back into the ring & grabs the mic, saying it looks like Slaughter is volunteering to be David’s daddy, now that he ain’t got one anymore. Crowd ooh’ing. Slaughter ignores, still gingerly helping the officials carry David up the aisle. Schultz says Slaughter was best off staying in his little powder room with his flag & his apple pie, but if he has to show his face, second-best is carryin’ that boy to safety & burping him, instead of facing a real man! Says maybe Slaughter needs to go into military nursing & leave this sport to the men. That does it!... Slaughter turns around, snarling, and runs back to the ring!!... 

Slaughter slides back into the ring & Schultz tries to pounce… but Slaughter sidesteps & SPEARS Schultz out of his boots!! Place going nuts!! Slaughter’s unloading roundhouses on Schultz!! Schultz frantically flips Slaughter off him & rolls out to the floor, retreating to the aisle & jawing at Slaughter in the ring. Slaughter’s like a house of fire & daring him to come get some more! Place going nuts! Schultz slowly backs up the aisle with a smile, as Slaughter stands tall & ready to get it on, as the show goes off the air.

Winner: David Sammartino by DQ

It's always good to see Rick Rude. The write-up for the main event was excellent! Schultz comes across like such an arse and I have no doubt any crowd would explode for Slaughter's spear!

Dr.D vs Sarge is the kind of hoss feud i can really get behind. Shame David had to die for it to happen, but Sarge is the perfect guy to take on a sadistic bully like Schultz.

Piper and Studd are riding high but be careful because they're going to have one angry giant to deal with at Survivor Series. 

Loved that Muraco/Morales match. These two always worked well together. Muraco gets the win and I think big things are heading his way. 

What a great All-Star this week, not only do we get Muraco/Morales but we get a barn burner of a main event with Schultz and David. Shultz takes some good bumps but regroups and destroys David. Classic Schultz rant on the mic. Oh yea, a Schultz/Slaughter feud will be money! This is the type of star Shultz should of been in the WWF.

HOUSE SHOW: Saturday 2/27 | New York, NY @ Madison Square Garden (22,238; Sell-out)

(Televised on the MSG Network. Gorilla Monsoon & Jesse Ventura on commentary @ ringside.)

Sam Houston defeated Steve Lombardi @ 6:28 with a bulldog. Hot crowd to start the night.

Ken Patera defeated George ‘The Animal’ Steele (w/Lou Albano) @ 7:44 when a reeling Patera snatched Steele’s legs out from underneath him from out of nowhere & rolled forward with a pinning bridge for the 1-2-3. Steele chased him to the back.

The Honkey Tonk Man made his NYC debut, defeating Osta Lara @ 3:31 with the Shake, Rattle, Roll.

[Victory Circle w/Lord Alfred Hayes: Special guest Fred Blassie. Gushes about Iron Sheik’s return on Superstars & making an example of 1 of America’s big symbols; Kevin Von Erich. Says Sheik is bigger, better, badder, more sadistic than ever & his comrades in Blassie, Inc. could be happier to have him back. Says they’ll go to Survivor Series to exact a reign of terror on everyone there. Intros Sheik, Red Scare & Virgil, who come down to thundering boos. Sheik says American people worship their athletes & put them on a high pedestal. Says Kevin is 1 of them & it was time to make his new target in his war on American values. Kevin slowly comes down the aisle to a massive ovation, eyes staring darts thru the clan in the ring. Suddenly, Hillbilly Jim, Cousin Luke, George Steele, & Capt. Lou Albano come down the aisle & stand at Kevin’s side! Blassie’s beside himself. Kevin & co. slowly climb into the ring… and the Blassie group slowly eases out of the ring, jawing as they back up the aisle. Kevin grabs the mic & says it looks like he’s got some comrades of his own, who ALSO will come to Survivor Series to unleash a reign of terror… on Sheik & all those freeloading, lowdown pigs alongside him! Blassie wants no parts of that, but Sheik & co. are jawing in full-throated support of it before leaving. “Still of the Night” hits & the place goes crazy, as Kevin & co. interact with the sellout throng.] 

Andre the Giant & Big John Studd fought to a double count-out @ 9:09. High-drama battle of the behemoths as both fought with  reckless abandon, in & out of the ring repeatedly. After the 10-count, the action spilled back into the ring & Roddy Piper ran down to help Studd gang up on Andre 2-on-1. Each took turns holding Andre in place, while the other dropped him with high-impact shots. Piper pulle Andre to his knees & put him out with the sleeper. As Piper & Studd leave in leisurely celebration, Studd puts Piper on his shoulders victoriously at ringside. Andre revives in the ring & reaches over the ropes, snatching Piper off Studd’s shoulders & yanking him back into the ring. Andre rag-dolls Piper all over the ring & keeps Studd at bay outside with roundhouses, every time Studd tries to rescue. Andre military-presses Piper & hurls him onto Studd, down below on the floor. Place came unglued for all this.   

[Intermission]

Sting/Fantastics defeated Greg Valentine/British Bulldogs (w/Bobby Heenan) @ 14:17. Barn-burner of a 6-Man showdown, with nonstop action flying, the moment Sting (white pants, red scorpion, red boots) & Fantastics came down for a fight. Tons of seamless tagging from both teams, near-falls, psychology, brawling, etc. End came during a 6-Man breakdown - Sting hit Valentine with a missile dropkick from the top & Valentine tumbled backward over an on-all-fours Rogers, who scored the flash 1-2-3. Valentine & the Bulldogs threw tantrums in the ring while the fan favorites celebrated & paraded to the back.

[Ring announcer Howard Finkel hypes Survivor Series & runs down the latest card. Crowd pops big & boos huge for the various names. Finkel announces he’s also just been informed, from the WWF Front Office, of a match-up just signed moments ago for the Survivor Series card: Kevin Von Erich/Hillbillies/George Steele vs. Iron Sheik/Red Scare/Virgil. Place goes nuts!]

Pedro Morales defeated ‘Magnificent’ Muraco by count-out @ 8:39 in a knockdown-dragout affair that spilled to the floor, ending in Morales staging a late flurry & beating the 10-count.

Sgt. Slaughter defeated Virgil (w/Fred Blassie) by DQ @ 7:16 when David Schultz ran down & ambushed Slaughter. Schultz pulverized Slaughter with a chair & finished him with a piledriver onto the chair. Deafening heat.

[Howard Finkel announces Saturday night 3/27 @ 8pm as next month’s return date. Matches already signed include: Tag Team Champions Samu/Fatu vs. Killer Bees, Sting vs. Ken Patera, ‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper vs. Hillbilly Jim, ‘Magnificent’ Muraco vs. ‘Mr. Wonderful’ Paul Orndorff, Kevin Von Erich vs. Iron Sheik, and pending the events of Survivor Series, a main event of Big John Studd vs. Hulk Hogan for the WWF Heavyweight Title!] 

Masa Saito (w/Mr. Fuji) defeated I-C Champ Tito Santana by DQ @ 12:49. Fuji announced Saito as the next WWF World Champion upon entrance. Santana got a huge welcome moments later & took the fight to Saito. Seesaw battle, with Saito continually recovering quickly from Tito’s high-impact arsenal. It took 2 flying forearms to flatten Saito & Fuji got on the apron with a chair. Tito snatched it from Fuji as Saito surprisingly made it back to his feet. Tito staggered Saito with a chairshot to the cranium for the DQ. The second chairshot flattens him & he rolls out to the floor. A seething Saito backs up the aisle with Fuji, as Tito keeps offering him to come back down.

‘Superstar’ Billy Graham defeated King Kong Bundy (w/Bobby Heenan) in a steel cage @ 10:19. Climactic bruise-fest with palpable bad blood between these two. Bundy managed to work Graham over with his girth & rib-crunching aggression. Graham unleashed his brand of justice early & often, battling through Bundy’s size advantages. Both men ate the steel repeatedly with their faces, sternums & backs. Multiple close calls with either man almost making it out the cage door, before their foe managed to drag them back in. End came when Graham mounted a heroic comeback after an extended Bundy onslaught. Graham pinballed Bundy head-first to the cage walls on all sides & finally leveled him with a high knee. As Graham attempted to scale the cage to exit, the Bulldogs/Valentine ran down & scaled the outside of the cage to cut him off. 4-on-1 beatdown inside the cage. Fantastics ran down, scaled the cage & now it’s a 4-on-3 brawl. Graham is wedged between the cage wall & the ropes, as Bundy charges for an Avalanche. Graham moves & Bundy eats the steel, as Graham crawls out the cage door for the win! Sting runs down with bats, gets into the cage & Team Heenan hightails it out of the cage. Graham, Sting & the Fantastics stand tall in the cage for the raucous crowd to close out the big night.

Sam Houston just seems like the kind of guy who start a crowd off right night after night.

Patera pulls a flash pin on the Animal then heads for the hills. Seems a smart way to handle Steele.

NYC begins to learn how to hate Honky-tonk Man with his quick win.

An explosive Victory Circle sees the creation of another big Elimination match at Survivor Series.

A hoss fight between Andre & Studd ends with Piper flying through the air! Maybe Roddy should have thought twice about angering a giant.

Sting & The Fantastics warm the crowd back up after intermission with a big win over the Hennan Family.

Morales & Muraco have a fun brawl that doesn't solve anything. Some situation bout perhaps.

Dr.D claims fight blood with a vicious assault on Slaughter.

I would've loved to see that Santana/Saito match.

Graham escapes the cage to get some long sought-after revenge on KKB.

A great night of wrestling at MSG.

As for Superstars.... loved the whole show as the build and main event were great.  Will we get Schultz vs Sgt or will Bruno come to the aid of his son.  Either way it will be great.  

Moracco vs Pedro is always one the crowd loves.

Sting and the Fantastics are a nice pairing early in Stings career.

Don't people ever learn....to upset Andre before the match!

As for the Garden... Great show.  You really have these monthly events down....  I don't know how you do it with such a stacked roster.  Such ability to have big stars always going after each other and still they always remaining strong and looking good.

Honky Tonk Man gets into a groove with another win.

Martel & Beefcake go the distance in a match I'm sure got the crowd going.

Davey Boy brings it home for the Bulldogs with a powerslam to " Polish Power"

Sting continues his rise with a win over the big Russian.

The Killer Bees pin one of the tag Champs  and the #1 contender to the World Title.

Virgil realizes he really shouldn't mess with a country boy.

" The Hammer " outwrestles Houston just as he did just about anybody.

The World Champion sends the crowd home happy by sending off the soviet challenger.

Another quality house show from the WWF.

Survivor Series could not be more stacked. 3 elimination matches, a potential show-stealer of a 2 of 3 falls match, a Texas Death Match and THAT main event I know what I'd be watching may 13th.
