Very fun card.  Any of those matches would have been great to see.  I think the Abdullah-Lawler No DQ match needs a little more TV time to hype as I see a NO DQ stipulation as part of a feud or someone coming to be the savior.

 

Can't wait for Flair-Martel!

 

Piper took this card from good to great all by himself.  He was so big in the Mid-Atlantic and his return would be epic.  

 

JJ Dillion was causing havoc at the Bash.  Wonder if it will continue or if someone will put him in his place.

Since I was a kid and my very first VHS tape I ever rented was Great American Bash '86, the Great American Bash has been one of my all time favorite events in wrestling and you are doing justice here my friend.  I could just visualize the crowd response when Piper made his way out to tag with Orton.  I think Tully vs. Ray Stevens would have been my favorite match on this card with the six man tag Funk and Masked Confusion against Magnum and the Rock & Roll Express.

- "Mil, you don't want to job? Fine, beat the Irwins. Pedro, try to make this match worth something, all right?"
- Yay Madusa, you're one of the few with talent at this point 
- Dorchester being even quasi-pushed is hilarious
- That ten men would've been interesting, especially since the vast majority of the working was on the babyface side. I'm assuming lots of selling, before it ends with a flurry. 
- I'm stunned neither Lawler nor Abby would job. :P 
- These screw ups happen, but in a weird way, The Legion keeping the belts kind of works. 
- Sorry Ray, here's some nice parting gifts as you head toward retirement. 
- Piper & Orton as big time babyfaces in Charlotte as opposed to being to heels in New York is some really awesome alt-history
- The semi-main was kind of the real main event here. Just kind of odd booking to be honest. I realize Brito has been getting some TV time, but still weird to me. Probably was a solid match, but yeah. 
 
Looking forward to the rest of the Bash!

I love the Bash concept and the original big bash show of 85. With Piper coming in, it takes the Bash to the next level and MACW is really putting together a roster to be reckoned with. I dare say that things are now more even that ever with WWF, AWA, MACW, and UWF/SA.

Brito and Mascaras going to a time limit draw and Martel beating Flair by CO are the best, most realistic, crowd-pleasing finishes for the Montreal show. Nice booking!

Great shows here.  Loved reading the Flair-Martel bout.  To be honest, I was not sure which way you were going to go here.  You guys are so unpredictable and I could see positives to Flair keeping the title but also some positives to Martel winning the title.

 

I was surprised to see Flair work in an 8 man tag match without the other horsemen.  I thought even the dirtiest player in the game would stay away from the Iranians and the Russians in 85 but I am sure he gets paid a lot of money to do what he is told.

 

LOVE THE AMERICAN BASH and you are doing a great job of hyping it up.

- Shouldn't it be the Great Canadian Bash? 
- Kinda off for The Rougeaus to be opening the show in their hometown, but I'm sure they're getting plenty of the gate. Good win though. 
- "Mil, no, you can't win the title. You can get a phantom pin on Brito right before the bell. OK?" 
- Good six-man action, but The Canadian's had to go over in Canada. 
- Blood blood blood! Lawler gets the pin, but I assume this won't be the end of the war. 
- Yeah, I assume Hansen did not take the fall in that six man. 
- Actually kind of shocked The Creatchman kept the belts for now, and even won, even if it was screwy as all hell. 
- It's Piper! That'll help you get some WWF fans in the area to pay attention to NWA TV. 
- Of course Funk has to win the 1st match. 
- Yup, good way to give the local guy the win without changing the title.

We return to see Ray Stevens in the ring. Tony tells us after this match, we’ll see what happened last week with the mystery partner against the former 24 Karat members.


Ray Stevens defeated Swede Hansen in 5:52.


Tony talks a new arrival in MACW and the NWA. He sends it to the footage of the reveal from RFK Stadium and Roddy Piper’s entrance. Bob Orton Jr. came out to the end of the aisle. He doesn’t say a word. The Anderson’s were in the ring, waiting for him to enter. They don’t think he’s got anyone, but he just waves to the locker room.  A band starts to come out of the locker room. They are playing bagpipes and they line up the long aisle. Playing as “Rowdy” Roddy Piper walks out from the locker room. The crowd explodes, and the Anderson’s are not happy about this development. Roddy comes down the aisle and hugs Orton.

David talks with Slater. He welcomes Slater to MACW. Slater shuts David up and yells into the camera that he doesn’t care about being welcomed into anywhere.
