IWA on WGN [taped June 15, 1991] (aired June 19, 1991)
⦁ Our hosts Bob Caudel and Scott Hudson welcome us once again to the IWA on WGN. They show highlights of last week's chaotic close to the debut show on ESPN and how Brad Armstrong will handle the cheap shot by Hot Stuff Eddie Gibert.
⦁ Bob Caudel announces that there will be two very important title tournaments coming up in the next two weeks, the IWA World and Tag Team titles which will run at the same time. He brings out Tully Blanchard who will be in the tournament. Blanchard seems a bit miffed that he has to even be involved in a tournament instead of being given the title outright. He says that he will blow through whoever they give him as he is "the man" around here and no longer playing second fiddle to anyone. Just as he continues, Brad Armstrong come out visibly upset and asks Caudel if he could just have a couple minutes but Blanchard insists that it's still his time on the mic and for Armstrong to learn some respect and get back in line. Armstrong makes it known that he wants a match against Gilbert for what he did during the last battle royal. Blanchard asks if he was deaf and told him to turn around and get to steppin and was jabbing his finger in his chest. Just as it looked like they were going to come to blows, Eddie Gilbert out of nowhere attacks Armstrong and knocks him out cold.
⦁ Art Barr & Leilani Kai vs. Javier Llanes & Medusa ends in a 10 minute time limit draw.
⦁ Music Video: Chris Benoit [You Could Be Mine by Guns N' Roses]
⦁ Tully Blanchard defeats Chris Adams with a piledriver and a pin with his feet on the middle rope.
⦁ After the match, Eddie Gilbert and Eric Embry walk up to Tully Blanchard to congratulate him on a hard fought win. Gilbert says that real winners and true champions always stick together. Suddenly, Armstrong comes racing at the three, picks up a chair and starts swinging. The heels disperse long enough for Embry to knock the chair out of Armstrong's hands and they gang up on him and the brawl goes back to the ring. Armstrong is able to take out Embry with a very stiff lariat and swings wildly at Blanchard. This gives enough of a distraction so that Hot Stuff is able to throw a fireball at the face of Armstrong. Armstrong is then taken out of the arena by medics.
⦁ BATTLE ROYAL #3: Angel Azteca, Apolo Dantes, Blue Panther, Bull Pain, Chris Candido, Chris Jericho, DJ Peterson, Eddy Guerrero, Steven Regal, Jeff Gaylord, Fuerza Guerrera, Villano III, Pitbull I, Pitbull II, Joel Deaton
⦁ The battle royal come down to Blue Panther, Chris Candido, Eddy Guerrero, Steven Regal and Villano III. Villano III and Blue Panther eliminated Candido, then Steven Regal eliminated Villano III. Blue Panther and Guerrero battle it out until Panther is thrown out. Guerrero and Regal go on to have a small heated exchange until Guerrero does a victory roll and both fall out of the ring but Guerrero's feet don't touch and he rolls back into the ring. Eddy Guerrero goes onto the fatal four way match for the TV championship.
⦁ Commissioner Thatcher comes out and states how he doesn't like having to get involved in the show but will have to if he has to restore order with stiff fines and even suspensions. He announces that at a very special episode of IWA on ESPN on June 29th, there will be a tag match between Tully Blanchard and Eddie Gilbert versus Brad Armstrong and a partner of his choosing. On another piece of business, they will reveal the 16 competitors in the IWA title tournament and the 8 tag teams in the tag title tournament on next weeks show on WGN.
