The women are a great addition to the Lutte roster.

Great win for Mad Dog over Hansen!

Orton vs. Brody should be an interesting showdown at Holiday Wars.

NWA Lutte Internationale TV

Taped at CHLT-TV Studios, Sherbrooke, QC

Broadcasted November 16th, 1985

 

dieu.jpg220px-Nwalogobw.jpg

 

-The broadcast team welcomes the viewers to this week's show as this week's main event will feature NWA World Tag Team Champion Botswana Beast against Gilles "The Fish" Poisson. Plus we should hear from Rick Martel about tomorrow night's show at the Forum headlined by Bruiser Brody & Stan Hansen vs UWF World Champion Jerry Lawler & NWA World Champion Ric Flair

 

-In this week's opening bout, Shawn Michaels goes one-on-one with Moss Travers. Travers is no match for Michaels and the match ends in about 4 minutes with a diving fist drop from Michaels. Postmatch, Shawn Michaels and Marty Jannetty are interviewed by Édouard Carpentier as they receive the news that at Starrcade, they will get their final shot at the Vachons for the NWA Canadian International Tag Team Championship in Quebec City. However, they won't be alone because just confirmed this week, AWA's Badd Company will also have their shot and this match becomes a Triangle Match. The rules of the match will be that in order to win the match, a team will have to score a pinfall or a submission over the other teams. This won't be an Elimination Match, which means that a team getting pinned doesn't end things for them. Marty Jannetty says that this match is innovative and this is what they're best known for. They want to be pioneers in tag team wrestling and this match will serve that purpose. They don't fear Badd Company and they'll make sure that this ends quickly. Shawn Michaels says that this is their last chance and they're gonna make the most of it. Michaels concludes by saying that if they don't win the titles at Starrcade, then they don't deserve to be in this territory, period!

 

-Up next, we see highlights of the recent altercations between Jacques Rougeau and Black Bart in World Class Championship Wrestling. We see once again the video package in which Jacques says that he'll show up at Thanksgiving Day Star Wars at the Dallas Sportatorium to defend the NWA Canadian International Heavyweight Championship against Black Bart. Back in studio, the Rougeau Brothers are at the interview desk with Édouard Carpentier. Jacques says that Black Bart has disrespected the Rougeau name for the very last time and if he had to resort to go to Dallas to shut him up, that's what he had to do. So he's heading into Thanksgiving Day Star Wars with the intent of ending this once and for all. Raymond adds that he knows that Black Bart's Desperados buddies won't be too far behind so he'll also make the trip in Dallas to watch Jacques' back. After Thanksgiving Day, the score will be settled once and for all and they'll be able to focus on Starrcade.

 

-Next, we see a video package about Heatwave when Ric Flair paid off Mad Dog Lefebvre & Richard Charland to attack Rick Martel, followed by Flair issuing a bounty on Martel's head in the following weeks. We also revisit the announcement that Ric Flair will be in town tomorrow night at the Montreal Forum as he'll be teaming up with Jerry Lawler to face Bruiser Brody & Stan Hansen in the main event. Rick Martel is now the guest at the broadcast booth. Martel says that while he's usually cool, calm and collected, no one has gone under his skin more than Ric Flair in recent months. Martel says that he's sick and tired of looking over the shoulder about the bounty on his head and he's coming to the Forum tomorrow night to end this and to confront Ric Flair. We then see Bruno Sammartino show up at the desk and warn Rick Martel to be careful with what he's gonna be doing. Bruno tells Martel that tomorrow night's main event is big for Lutte Internationale with 4 of the biggest names in the world competing in the same match and the territory and they cannot afford for Martel to ruin this. Martel says that Bruno's got his word about that and he'll wait after the match to deal with Flair accordingly!

 

-Main event time as NWA World Tag Team Champion Botswana Beast (with Eddy "The Brain" Creatchman) takes on Gilles "The Fish" Poisson. While The Fish can muster some offense against the Beast, there isn't much more that he can do as the Beast is overpowering him in every way. The match ends in around 9 minutes with a splash on Poisson. After the match, Eddy Creatchman goes to the broadcast booth and says that he doesn't sweat whoever Jim Crockett has aligned for him and his Creatchman Family at Starrcade because they're gonna steamroll through them just like they did with the Rougeau Brothers when they won the title. Guy Hauray mentions that tomorrow night though, they must go through Ivan Putski and his mystery partner first. Creatchman says that he doesn't care if Putski brought his mother, his father, his cousin or the homeless man on St. Catherine street near the Forum as his tag team partner because the Creatchman Family will destroy him. This leads to a confrontation between Putski and Creatchman and eventually, Putski grabs Creatchman by the collar and is about to smack him when Lord Humongous jumps Putski from behind, knocking Polish Power out! The show ends with Humongous standing over Putski as the broadcast team wonders who will Putski choose as his partner tomorrow night at the Forum!!

Dark Matches after the tapings:

 

Madusa Miceli beat Sherri Martel in 6:54

 

Chris Benoit & the Great Samu (w/"Pretty Boy" Floyd Creatchman) beat Frenchy's Legion (w/Frenchy Martin) in 13:26. This was seen as a tune-up match for Holiday Wars as Benoit & Samu worked pretty good together.

I love the triangle match for the title.  Also Lawler and Flair together could be Heaven or it could be Hell!  Great upcoming cards

Hmm, i wonder if Martel will keep his promise.  Hell of a main event tag for sure.  Some foreshadowing by the Rockers maybe?

November 17th, 1985

Forum de Montréal

 

-Marty Jannetty beat The Great Samu (w/ "Pretty Boy" Floyd Creatchman) in 13:45

 

NWA World Tag Team Championship: The Creatchman Family (w/Eddy "The Brain" Creatchman) beat Ivan Putski & his mystery partner 'Playboy" Buddy Rose in 13:51 to retain

 

NWA Canadian International TV Championship: Super Strong Machine beat Alexis Smirnoff in 15:17 to retain

 

Lumberjack Match: Armand Rougeau beat "Ace" Bob Orton (w/Sherri Martel) in 9:29. Sherri was at ringside cheering Bob Orton when Buddy Rose came to the ring, with a teddy bear and flowers to give to Sherri. After a few stunned moments, Sherri realizes that....B.R WAS BUDDY ROSE!!! An incensed Billy Robinson (who was one of the lumberjacks) immediately attacks Buddy Rose and the other lumberjacks must separate Billy Robinson and Buddy Rose. This allows Armand Rougeau to roll up Orton, who was distracted by everything happening outside the ring!

 

-"Maniac" Matt Borne beat Raymond Rougeau in 15:04

 

-Shawn Michaels beat Gino Brito in 13:02

 

-Gilles "The Fish" Poisson beat "Mr. Electricity" Steve Regal in 6:28

 

Special Attraction Main Event: Bruiser Brody & Stan "The Lariat" Hansen beat UWF World Champion Jerry "The King" Lawler & NWA World Champion Ric Flair in 56:47 after a Lariat by Hansen on Lawler. Midway through the match, Rick Martel showed up but was intercepted by NWA Enforcer Bruno Sammartino, who had to convince him to stay away from ringside. Of course, Flair did all he could to antagonize Martel. But as soon as the final bell rang, Martel made a beehive for the ring and jumped on Ric Flair! All hell broke loose in the ring and the crowd loved it. Then, something unusual happens: out of nowhere, Lutte's resident clown D'Artagnan walked in the ring, with his usual somber mood - and with something in his hand. That's when at that very moment, D'Artagnan attempted to attack Martel! But Martel saw it coming and turned around to confront D'Artagnan. D'Artagnan tried to run away but Martel grabbed him by the hair....and the wig comes off? The man turns around and starts fighting with Martel until Ric Flair ambushes Martel again! Flair and Martel continue their fight and the man grabs what he had dropped: a taser gun! The man then proceeds to tase Martel as he was trying to apply the Boston Crab on Flair. Not once, but twice! With the smeared face paint, we start making out who is it.....IT'S "MANIAC" MATT BORNE! D'ARTAGNAN WAS MATT BORNE ALL ALONG! Flair locks in the Figure Four on an agonizing Rick Martel as Matt Borne continues to pummel Martel and yell insanities at him. After a few moments, Bruno Sammartino and officials are able to separate all three men. While they check on Martel, Flair and Borne head to the timekeeper's table and Flair retrieves a bag from under it. He hands it over to Matt Borne.....It's official: Matt Borne has cashed in on Ric Flair's bounty over Rick Martel!! What does this mean for Starrcade???

So, Buddy Rose turns out to be the mysterious BR AND the clown is Matt Borne?!?  I'm all for both. :)  Michaels continues to get a massive push.

Borne wrestling as half a clown would have been a sight to see.  Good to see Jacques getting a big win.

The trickiest part for the whole reveal was to choose when to do it. I thought about doing this at Holiday Wars 2 weeks after that card but I figured that since I had booked Ric Flair for the card, it was the perfect opportunity to pull the trigger there instead and add the final layer for Flair vs Martel at Starrcade.

Whoa, that is a massive brawl to end the last show. I'm hoping they weren't all in the ring at once, might be hard to actually move.  And holy crap is Michaels on a roll.  He beat Humongous 1 on 1.  I am guessing the Sensationals are on the outs very soon.  I have this feeling Sherri is going to find new clients.  If Bobby Jaggers needs a new home you let me know. :)
