Great house show loops.  Most interesting match was the Outlaws over the Road Warriors.  This might just push the Outlaws to be the #1 team in the NWA.  Warriors are going to want some revenge.

Interesting that JYD came back as Big Daddy Ritter.... JYD is so loved that when he turned on the fans and joined Shaska, this might make him heel #1 in all of the wrestling world.

I don't think I've ever mentioned this, but I always liked that shot of your top champ at the end of the opening video. 

Tonight's show is full of exciting new talent.

Yamada impresses with the shooting star press.

S&S Express are in sync and ready to make a mark in the tag team division. 80s tag team at its best. 

St. Valentine's Day Massacre in Alabama. Hmmmm, the NWA is venturing out. 

Whatley might be right. With Ritter on their side, they have to be considered favorites for the 6 man titles. 

Brickhouse Brown looking smooth as ever. Looking forward to his run here. 

Stan Hansen is coming! Watch out! 

Mega Man has arrived! After winning some tag gold in Pacific, it looks like he's ready for a solo run in the NWA.

NWA announcannounces the return of Worldwide!

When the then Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling returned from a six month hiatus in September of last year, it was announced that the promotion would be discontinuing its second TV show "Worldwide". Now after a corporate restructure & a decision to take the NWA brand as the companies own, the decision has been made to resurrect the discontinued program. Notably "Worldwide" will not be broadcast over the WTBS superstation but, like UWF's "Power Pro" it will be broadcast on syndication throughout the country. Also in an attempt to create a separate atmosphere from the NWA'S main show "Power Hour", each episode of"Worldwide" will be taped from the Center Stage in Atlanta,  Georgia. This is meant to make the show more cost effective & provide it with a more intimate feel. Furthermore, while each episode of "Power Hour" is taped individually, "Worldwide" will have episodes taped back-to-back.The first episode of "NWA Worldwide" air on Sunday February 19th.

Is the NWA looking for a new home?

It's no secret that WTBS head honcho Ted Turner is a huge wrestling fan. Over the past few years his superstation has hosted the TV content of four separate territories. Mid-South/UWF, Continental Championship Wrestling, the short lived Western States Wrestling & Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling/NWA. However WTBS, days as the go-to superstation for professional wrestling may be numbered. Ever since the sudden & very public collapse as a governing body late last year, as well as the sudden shutdown of CCW as it was on the verge of a rebrand, there have been reports of ever increasing friction between UWF president "Cowboy" Bill Watts and his successor as President of the NWA Jim Crockett Jr. For his part, Mr Turner is reportedly ordering his employees to treat the two companies as equally as possible, seemingly determined to keep both on his channel. Nevertheless, unsubstantiated rumors abound that the Crockett's have sent out feelers to rival superstations to see if any would be interested to get in on the pro wrestling craze. CBS, WGN, HBO & the USA network have all been brought up as possible destinations but so far NWA officials have refused to even address the rumors. We'll keep an eye on the situation in case anything develops.

Keiichi Yamada is great opener!

A video package like that is a great way to build anticipation for a guy like Stan Hansen. I can't wait to see what he accomplishes here!

(The main event was promoted as the Road Warriors & a partner of their choosing vs the Horsemen trio of Tully Blanchard & the Andersons. Most of the competitors are in the ring waiting for the RW's partner. As the wait drags on the Horsemen begin taunting the Warriors for not being able to find anyone. Just as Tommy Young is about to make a decision, unfamiliar music blares over the pa system and everyone turns to the entrance way. A variety of reactions follow...the crowd ERUPTS in applause, Ellering looks like the cat that ate the canary, Dillon, Blanchard & Arn are in shock, but the most powerful reaction is from Ole...face contorted in RAGE...turning a almost startling shade of red... as DUSTY RHODES makes his way into the ring. He's no sooner through the ropes before a livid Ole dashes across the ring and intercepts him. This rouses the others to action & the opening bell is nearly drown out as the crowd voices their excitement at the pier-six brawl brawl that breaks out)

The debuting "American Dream" Dusty Rhodes & The Road Warriors (Hawk & Animal) w/"Precious" Paul Ellering defeat The Four Horsemen (Tully Blanchard & the Andersons) when Rhodes hits a "Bionic Elbow"/running elbowdrop combo on Arn.

Adonis arrives to the NWA and it's lights out for Simpson.

Bad night for S&S as Dundee defeats Jump'n Joe. 

Wright retains his TV title on the house loop but took some punishment both times. 

Hmmm, Flair accepts Yamada's handshake. Loving this slow turn for Flair. 

Like the push Fleming is getting. Big win over Wild Bill. 

Outlaws and Jayhawks could be one wild feud. 

WOW! I knew it had to happen sooner or later. DUSTY RHODES is back in the NWA! Game changer. 

Big Daddy Ritter is looking unstoppable! 

Duggan takes out Boyd. HOOOOOOOO! 

Borne deserved that US title shot. Things get nuts between him and Savage. Hopefully this is just the beginning. 

Another successful loop.

NWA 1985 (Power Hour Posted) | Wrestlingfigs.com WWE Figure Forums

NWA POWER HOUR!

Previously Recorded/Airing on 1/28/87

Commentary:Bob Caudle & Tony Schiavone 

Ring Announcer:David Crockett 

(The NWA opening video slams on screen with quick clips of the top stars set to "Rock Warrior" by The Rods. We close on a shot of NWA World Heavyweight Champion Tully Blanchard before cutting to Caudle & Schiavone at ringside)

The Best And Worst Of NWA Starrcade '85: The Gathering

BC:Wrestling fans welcome to another episode of NWA Power Hour, professional wrestling's most exciting hour. I'm Bob Caudle alongside Tony Schiavone. We've got a incredible hour of wrestling for you tonight with the long awaited debut of one of professional wrestling's most dangerous men, I'm talking about the Bad Man from Borger, Texas Stan "The Lariat" Hansen.

TS:We've been seeing those videos for weeks and finally, we can see what Stan Hansen can do in person. Folks if you've never seen him in action, I promise you it's not something you're going to forget. Speaking of things not easily forgotten, I'm sure our great fans in Norfolk won't soon forget the night they saw "The American Dream" Dusty Rhodes return to the NWA (HUGE POP) well fans i can report that Dusty Rhodes is here & will be making his first appearance on NWA Power Hour later this broadcast. (Somehow louder pop)

BC:Stan Hansen & Dusty Rhodes in the same broadcast? Only on the Power Hour! Now let's send it to the ring for our opening contest & the debut of a entertaining new Tag Team.

Match #1

The debuting Good & Plenty (Ray Candy & Sweet Brown Sugar) defeat Cruel Connection (1&2) when Sugar hit a Candy assisted Senton from the top rope on CC#2 that a clearly amused Schiavone informed fans was called the "Tootsie Roll"

Ray Candy - WikipediaSkip Young (wrestler) - Wikipedia

Commercial-Bob Caudle runs down the NWA house shows for the coming week.

(We return to footage from the recent house show in Richmond VA. We see Paul Jones wrapping his hands around Ms Elizabeth's throat leading to the chaotic finish to the U.S title match. Caudle & Schiavone state that the NWA has a zero tolerance policy against man on woman violence. As such Mr Jones has been stripped of his managerial license meaning he no longer has any right to appear at NWA events. They also inform the audience that the NWA Championship Commetie is working to schedule a rematch between Randy Savage & Matt Borne in order to settle their differences)

Match #2

"Maniac" Matt Borne defeats George South with the "Stump Puller"

Matt Borne RIP My friend | Matt osborne, Beefy men, Wrestler

(Post match an incensed Borne grabs the mic & declares that the NWA has made a huge mistake stripping Jones' license because Jones was the only one holding him back! He declares all future injuries are on their heads. Then to illustrate his point, he grabs South & hits a completely unnecessary piledriver)

Match #3

"The Polynesian Prince" Siva Afi defeats Mitch Snow with a jumping headbutt.

Happy Birthday to Siva Afi! | Pro Wrestling Amino

Commercial break-Promo for "Christmas Chaos" now available on NWA Home Video.

Match #4

Brutha's in Arms (Shaska Whatley & Tiger Conway Jr) defeat The Interns (1&2) with a double DDT on Intern #1. Whatley & Conway were accompanied by a man never before seen in this area. Whomever he is, he quickly got on the nerves of many fans due to a combination of his association with Whatley & Conway & generally giving off the vibe of a used car salesman.

NWA Sat Night on TBS Feb 13, 1988! The Jive Tones are Outstanding! Ronnie  Garvin Disrespects the Red by Booking The Territory Pro Wres | MixcloudSlickster.jpg

BC:Wrestling fans we promised it & here it is, please welcome back to the NWA, "The American Dream" Dusty Rhodes! (Rhodes struts into the interview area while the crowd loses its collective mind)

DustyRedMan.jpg

BC:Dusty Rhodes it's great to see you back in the NWA. What brings you back to these parts?

DR:Well let me tell ya, Bob Caudle. You & everybody knows that 1986 didn't end on a high note for Dusty Rhodes the American Dream. First my good personal friend Magnum T.A suffers a terrible automobile accident, & let me say on his behalf, he is so thankful to anyone that sent in a letter, a thought or a prayer. He told me to tell y'all that the love you sent him helped him through what had been the toughest time of his life baybay. (Rhodes pauses while the crowd erupts in a "Magnum" chant)  then while I was away helping my friend & his family in their time of need, the N dubya A, the most historic, most prestig-e-us governing body in the histery of professional rasslin seems to disappear in a puff a smoke. And to top off, the icing on the cake if you will, Continental Championship rasslin goes up in smoke just as we it was bout to launch a whole new era for itself. When ya get that much coming at ya at a same time, sometimes the best thing you can do is take a step back, sometimes ya gotta go, in the words of one of my favorite songs "where everybody knows your name & they're always glad ya came" and for Dusty Rhodes the American Dream 2 time NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion, there ain't no place i feel more at home than in front of an N dubya A audience daddy! And ya know somethin'? Of all that I've done in that ring, there's nothin' I'm as proud of as my two reigns as the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion. But as the Dream thought about it i realized somethin' The only thing that sounds better than Dusty Rhodes, The American Dream, 2 time NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion is Dusty Rhodes, The American Dream, 3 time NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion! So Tully Blanchard! Listen up & listen ta me good brutha! I don't know where, I don't know when but I promise ya, you & I are gonna meet in that ring & when that day comes, I WILL become NWA World Heavyweight Champion for the 3rd time BABAY! (Rhodes leaves to thunderous applause)

Commercial-Promo for "St Valentines Day Massacre"

(Before the main event, Caudle & Schiavone officially announce the return of "Worldwide" the Sunday after "St Valentines Day Massacre" & excitedly announce the show will be hosted by none other than Gordon Solie!)

Main event 

Stan "The Lariat" Hansen defeats Earthquake Ferris after damn near decapitating the big man with his world famous Lariat.

So happy to see Good & Plenty find a home. Such a fun team. 

Just like that, Paul Jones is out. If he was the only one holding Matt Borne back, Randy Savage might be in serious trouble. 

The Polynesian Prince gets in a solid showcase. 

Hmmmmmm, I wonder who this guy is, hanging out with Whatley and Conway? 

The American Dream is back on NWA TV babay! You really nailed that promo. Dream vs. Tully is nothing but money! 

Worldwide gets instant credibility with Gordon hosting. 

Good grief! Awesome debut for Stan Hansen! Nice booking him against Earthquake Ferris. Stan putting a big man like Ferris down, makes his debut that much more impressive.

During a pier-six brawl, referee Theodore Long is attempting to escort Ole & Animal out of the ring. JJ takes the chance to pass Arn a chair, he goes to hit Hawk with it but pauses. Then with a devious grin on his face, he smacks the chair against the matt. Before Long can turn to expect the noise, Arn quickly tosses the chair to Hawk before falling backwards to the matt. On instinct Hawk catches the chair just as Long turns around & calls for the bell despite Hawk, Ellering & many fans trying to explain what happened. The Horsemen were smiling the entire time Ole & JJ "helped" Arn to the back.

The Dream and the Nature Boy... watch out 1987... I am also a huge fan of Duggan here with the Road Warriors. I only wonder if he'll paint his face like them as well? Big Daddy Ritter... well... he and Wild Bill have a wild one. I may have to do some learning on Steve Wright... I am not too familiar with him.

I will put over your loops. Realistic towns. Awesome cards. Tully Blanchard on top... I love it.

Wright is brining serious credibility to the TV title. 

JJ and the Andersons pull one over on the Road Warriors. I'm hoping this gets settled in a cage. 

Yamada rightfully earns a world title shot by eliminating Ritter. 

The Exotic One has arrived! 

After that match, I'm sure we're going to get more of Jayhawks/Outlaws. 

JJ's at it again as he helps Tully retain over Yamada. 

Good & Plenty vs. Fire and Flame. I just love the sound of this match up. 

Slick with Ritter. What a combo. 

I agree with Lowblow, I bet Duggan had his face painted. 

If you want a big gate, book Dusty vs. Flair. JJ's miscue costs Flair. The story continues. 

Another solid loop.

Great set up show to St. Valentine's Day Massacre! 

Spartanburg Vice and Mega Man are entered. 

Adonis is perfect for Radiance. These colorful characters might pull it off.

Brickhouse and Good & Plenty are defiantly the feel good team of the tournament. 

The chops are coming with Wahoo and the War Party! 

The Superstar and The Exotic one together again! If Street says their partner is the most dangerous man in England, that's big trouble for the other teams.  

Damn! Savage and Borne in a dog collar match! Massacre indeed! 

Duggan and The Road Warriors might be the favorites. However, the Russians would argue that. 

We're in for a tremendous night of action!

Sorry I have fallen behind here but I must say that I really like the moves you have made recently and I think your roster has a real NWA feel to it.  You did a great job with the Dusty interview.  I have had him a few times and found he was hard to write for with the lisp and all and how I always thought he had to be the center of the show.  Good work.  I also like your choice to put the belts on the Road Warriors.  They were so over at this time and then just seemed like they could not be beaten.  Duggan and Borne is also a nice feud for the time.  Those two had a nice run in MId-South.  Your tag division is pretty deep and I am looking forward to who you bring on to face the Road Warriors.

Very realistic card at the High School. The fans in attendance got a treat with that tag team main event. 

Haystacks debuts in Richmond with a devastating win over 3 men! Nice to see him back in the game. 

2 young teams, S&S/Radiance get a chance to show their stuff. S&S come out on top. 

Damn! With some help from Slick, Ritter really puts down Irwin! 

TV champ Wright gets his biggest win to date over Adonis. 

Adias is another guy I'm glad to see back in the game. 

Dundee, Street and Haystacks might be the sleeper team in the upcoming tournament. Street was right, Haystacks is nothing but dangerous. 

Wright is on the roll of a lifetime. First Adonis, then Ritter. This man is legit! 

Duggan and Borne is a brawler's dream match. 

WOW! I knew a cage match had to be coming. Road Warriors finally get their big win over the Andersons. NEW CHAMPS! Very well built up story that had a great pay off. I could imagine the pop.
