Great week for the NWA...

I really enjoyed WCW TV this week.  So many matches between two big names but the bigger name always came out on top.  I think this is a great way to push who you want.

Also enjoying the push of Adrian Adonis.  He is someone I don't think will win the title but name recognition, a devasting finisher and Sherri in the corner makes him very believable and a Flair-Adonis feud will sell plenty of tickets!

Dusty to win the tournament puts him right where he should be... in title contention.  WOW.... Dusty vs Hansen.  Someone is going to be bloody!  This one is going to be awesome.

Adonis vs. Flair is going to be good.

Sherri has Radiance on the winning track. 

Smiley suffers his first loss, but Miss Linda is interested.

Hansen's lariat takes down a brickhouse.

Good grief! I bet the fans were in awe at Animal. If there's anybody that could powerslam Haystacks, it's Animal. 

Damn, Sherri goes nuts on Flair! Loved the expression on Adonis. 

Charlotte,

Dusty Rhodes wins the tournament and gets a US title shot. If there's one man who can hang with Hansen, it's the American Dream. 

Ritter has enough of Slick and powerslams him down! Cool seeing Ritter leave on a high note.

After a great feud, Trinity blows it off by winning the 6 man titles. This is going to be a fun reign.

Greenville,

Always fun seeing the Assassins get a win.

Santo and Hase get in solid victories. 

Tully gets past Siva, as he tunes up for his rematch with Flair.

Wrestlers need to be on high alert when they see Fuller coming in with a towel. 

Even without Slick, the Brutha's still fight dirty and retain over the Renegade Warriors.

Road Warriors end the night on a high note by taking down the Andersons.

WWE Network Roundup (Nov. 22-28): Survivor Series, NWA World Championship  Wrestling - Cageside Seats

From Center Stage in Atlanta GA.

On Commentary: Bob Caudle & Tony Schiavone

Ring Announcer: David Crockett

Previously recorded Airing on 6/18/87 on the USA Network.

The War Party (Joe Lightfoot & Billy Two Eagles) vs The New Breed (Chris Champion & Sean Royal)

Royal & Champion are familiar faces to those who recall the Mid-Atlantic days. Commentary say they've been traveling the country honing their skills & have returned to show off what they've learned. They isolate Two Eagles & really work him over, showing they aren't afraid to bend the rules. Lightfoot gets the hot tag & manages to turn the tide for a bit until Royal nails a dropkick which knocks him back into the War Party's corner. Two Eagles takes the opportunity to tag himself back in which seems to irritate Lightfoot & they actually get into an argument until Royal drives a knee into Two Eagles back sending him crashing into Lightfoot who falls through the ropes. Royal whips Two Eagles into the New Breed's corner & tags in Champion. Royal lifts Two Eagles in a spinebuster position while Champion climbs to the top rope & comes off with a seated senton. Schiavone informs the audience that this move is called "future shock" & it puts Two Eagles away. Lightfoot is furious at Two Eagles & walks away while his partner trys to explain himself.

"The Polynesian Prince" Siva Afi vs Barry O

O's arrogant strutting around the ring really gets under the crowd's skin. He & Siva have a mostly straight forward brawl with O sprinkling in some mat wrestling for flavor. Eventually Afi's intensity turns the tide & he claims the win via the jumping headbutt.

"Mr Excitement" Johnny Ace vs Joel "Dead Eye" Deaton 

Deaton's pure roughhouse offense clashes nicely with Ace's more versatile arsenal. They have a competitive & entertaining match until Deaton escapes an attempted "Ace Crusher" by shoving his opponent chest first into the turnbuckle. He follows up by hitting a stiff clothesline on his cornered adversary before planting him with a bulldog for the 1...2...3.

The Killer Bees (B. Brian Blair & Jim Brunzell) vs Tough Guy Inc (Don Bass & Duke Myers) 

The Bee's are making their NWA debut & commentary hype them as an exciting duo who've made their names in the northeast as well as a recent successful stint in Chicago. They quickly win the crowd over with their quick offense & effective teamwork. The Tough Guys are determined to play spoilers however & we get a nice back & forth tag match. Towards the end things start to break down & we get all four men in the ring throwing hands. Surprisingly this plays to the Bee's advantage as they're able to nail Bass with a double dropkick allowing Blair to pin him while Brunzell holds off Myers.

Bruiser Brody vs "Pretty Boy" Doug Somers w/"Sensational" Sherri Martel

Somers really drew the short end of the stick as Brody batters him around the ring. Commentary point out how Brody & Somers' Radiance stablemate Adrian Adonis eliminated each other in the tournament in Charlotte. Martel is able to create a few openings for her client to take advantage of but they never last & inevitably he falls to the "King Kong Knee Drop"

NWA World Television Title

Tom "MegaMan" McGee(c) vs "Black Bullet" Shaska Whatley w/Slick

Commentary hype Whatley's opportunity to become a double champion & he throws everything he has at the champion. Whatley really knows how to get heat in this part of the country & the addition of Slick kicks that to another level meaning the crowd is on fire for this one. The combination of Whatley's aggressive brawling & Slick's willingness to interfere make it a rough defense for McGee who responds with grit & his jaw dropping athletism. In a crucial part of the match, Whatley has prone & goes for the "Flying Willie" but takes a second too long berating the fans & McGee is able to roll out of the way. Slick perhaps sensing the TV title slip away, gets on the ramp connecting the entrance to the ring & begins jaw jacking with the ref. Suddenly the Southern Boys come out & promptly pick Slick up onto their shoulders & carry him to the back as commentary mention that the Southern Boys own a victory over the United States Tag champs. Whatley is irate at what's happening to his manager but before he can do anything he's pulling into a back suplex which the champ follows with a slingshot legdrop for another successful defense of his belt.

In other news...

Dusty Rhodes cuts a promo on winning the tournament in Charlotte to challenge for the NWA United States Title. He puts over his history in Florida & says he's looking forward to "lockin' horns with one of the baddest dudes in all wrasslin & my fellow Texan Stan Hansen". He says winning the United States title on independence day is gonna be "one of the sweetest moments of my wrasslin lifetime babay!"

We see a pre-recorded from The Celestial Trinity who hype their winning the NWA World Six Man Tag Team titles in Charlotte. Zodiac says "The Posse tried to halt the inevitable march of the universe, only to be crushed beneath it." Says they will hold the titles until the last star fades from the sky & throws out an open challenge for the Bash for "an three mortals brave yet foolish enough to think they can overturn fates design."

Solie announces that due to the Southen Boys owning a DQ victory over the Brutha's in a title match, as well as what went down on last nights WCW, the NWA Championship Committee has decreed that the Southern Boys will receive another chance at the United States Tag Titles at the Great American Bash!

Nice finish to the Tom McGee versus Shaska Whatley match!

It's really cool to see Hiroshi Hase continuing to rack up wins.

I like Jimmy Del Ray's chances at snatching the TV title, with Sherri Martel there to help him out!

I like how you have the TV title on someone who is more of a midcard talent.  This allows you to use more of your roster in big matches.  

I know I said it before but I am really looking forward to Hansen vs Brody!

New Breed immediately make a splash in the NWA. On the flip side, it looks like the War Party are heading for an explosive break up.

One of my game's favorites, Siva Afi, racks up an impressive win over O.

I loved that finishing sequence by Deaton. 

Killer Bees arrive and get instant credibility with a win over Tough Guy Inc.

Poor Sommers. 

Exciting TV title main event. Slick and Whatley get the classic heel heat, Southern Boys save the day, and Mega Man retains. Fun stuff.

Worldwide.

Add the Dirty White Boys to a stacked tag division. 

The Gigolo earns a TV title shot and will be a threat, but Mega Man has some serious momentum going right now. 

Dusty vs. Hansen at the Bash is going to rock.

Whoever accepts the Trinity's challenge, I hope they know what they're dealing with.

Southern Boys get a shot at the US tag titles. I'm sure Slick is going to want payback.

WWE Network Roundup (Nov. 22-28): Survivor Series, NWA World Championship  Wrestling - Cageside Seats

From the Winthrop Coliseum in Rock Hill SC.

On Commentary: Bob Caudle & Tony Schiavone

Ring Announcer: David Crockett

Previously recorded Airing on 6/25/87

The Southern Boys (Tracy Smothers & Steve Armstrong) vs The Assassins (2&3)

The two masked men were determined to send a message to the rest of the tag team division & really put the fan favorites through the ringer. But Armstrong & Smothers refused to be deterred ahead of their big opportunity at the Great American Bash & with the crowd's support were able to rally with Armstrong landing a top rope sunsetflip to secure the win.

Shaun Simpson vs "Pretty Boy" Doug Somers w/"Sensational" Sherri Martel

Commentary hype the ongoing rivalry between the Express & Radiance before revealing that the two teams will meet at the Great American Bash in a Texas Tornado match. We get a heated match with both men clearly trying to soften the other up before their big clash. As has become the pattern, Martel proved the difference maker. Taking advantage of the ref checking on Somers, she shoved Simpson off the top rope sending him crashing to the mat allowing her client to hit a brainbuster for the tainted win.

"Big" Lou Winston vs Zodiac

The Spartanburg naitive put up a spirited effort against the maniacal leader of the Celestial Trinity rocking him with a series of clotheslines & football tackles. But Zodiac was able to use that energy against his opponent as he sidestepped a charging Winston who's shoulder crashed into the ring post. It was all downhill from there with the end coming from the diving kneedrop. Commentary say whomever answer the open challenge for the Six Man Titles at the Bash, they'd better come prepared.

"The American Dream" Dusty Rhodes vs "Iron Fist" Duke Myers

This one is mainly a showcase for Rhodes who had the crowd hanging on his every move. Myers does get some solid hits in but the outcome is never in doubt & the "Bionic Elbow" is greeted with a huge pop.

NWA World Television Title

Tom MegaMan McGee(c) vs "Gigolo" Jimmy Del Ray w/"Sensational" Sherri Martel

A very competitive match which serves as something of a coming out party for the challenger. This is Del Ray's biggest singles opportunity yet & he takes the chance to show what he's made of. Of course, McGee is champion for a reason & fights back with his combination of power & athleticism which never fails to impress. The end comes when Del Ray goes for his moonsault only for McGee to roll out of harm's way. A slightly worried Martel is seen taking her heel of & looks ready to throw it into the ring when Shaun Simpson ran down & swiped it from her. Sherri let out a downright animalistic yell as she actually takes a swing at Simpson who ducks under before grabbing Sherri & takes her up onto his shoulder & carries her to the back, her kicking & screaming obscenities the entire time. Back in the ring a somewhat distracted Del Ray falls victim to a closing blitz by the champ which culminates in the slingshot legdrop.

NWA World Heavyweight Champion "Nature" Boy Ric Flair, "Raging Bull" Manny Fernandez & a partner of their choosing vs The Horsemen (Tully Blanchard & The Andersons) w/JJ Dillon

The Horsemen are already in the ring while a Flair & Fernandez stand in the aisleway. The Horsemen can be heard calling that there is no third man when "White Lightening" blairs over the pa system & Bruiser Brody storms the ring. The Horsemen clear out while Brody stomps around swinging his chain huss-ing at the crowd. The ref somehow manages an orderly start & we get a intense main event that threatens to be thrown out several times. Finally, towards the end of TV time all six men are brawling in the ring. JJ takes the chance to slip the title to Arn who smashes Fernandez with it. The ref turns around in time to see the cover & makes the three count. The match may be over but the fight isn't & fists are still flying as we go off the air with Caudle & Schiavone hard selling the Bash.

Southern Boys have a rough time with the Assassins but get the win. Solid tune up for their upcoming match with the Brutha's.

Sherri's been quite the difference maker for Radiance. 

I agree with commentary, whoever answers Trinity's challenge better know what they're getting into.

It's always a big deal when Dusty wrestles on TV. 

Gigolo shines tonight. However, Simpson finally has enough and gets Sherri out of there, allowing Mega Man to retain. Can't wait for the Texas Tornado blow off.

Damn! That's one heck of a TV main event. Horsemen get the tainted win but the fight is far from over. 

Worldwide,

Brutha's send a message right back to the Southern Boys.

Speaking of messages, Hansen sends Dusty a brutal one at the expense of Siva and Executioner. 

Smiley and Mega Man at the Bash. Should be a good one. 

Wow! Look at those teams in the Land of Opportunity match. To close to call. 

Things just got interesting for the Trinity 6 man open challenge match. I wonder who Adias is bringing in???

Bring on the Bash!!!!

Can't wait for the bash... lots on the line... plenty of stakes for everyone to invest in! I really like the land of opportunity gimmick... it works and there's some big time teams in that spot. Brody comes in with a huge bang. NWA continues to provide one of the best when it comes to utilizing talent and making them important quicker than anyone else!
