Yeah, it's been very cool so far. That stuff with Gene couldn't have come at a better time, especially since I couldn't do much stuff with Mid-Atlantic because Fenton wasn't able to do as much as he wanted to. But with spaldoni in his place now, I think it's gonna be fun to involve Mid-Atlantic, World Class & Lutte altogether - along with PR of course! - and we're hopefully be able to create some great stuff.

Amazing main event! So much great talent in the ring at once.

Thrilled to be part this angle...it's really picked up steam and gotten over even more than I think either of us expected, looking forward to more great things to come!

NWA Lutte Internationale TV

Taped at CHLT-TV Studios, Sherbrooke, QC

Broadcasted December 7th, 1985

 

dieu.jpg220px-Nwalogobw.jpg

 

 

-The broadcast team started the show by hyping Rick Martel capturing the WCCW World Heavyweight Championship last week in Dallas by beating Harley Race. Martel is now headed to Starrcade to face Ric Flair for the NWA World Heavyweight Championship and rumors are swirling that this could even be a Unification Match but no confirmation of this yet. There is also speculation that Quebec City might host the Martel vs Flair title match at Starrcade but the announcement should be made official next week.

 

-In the opening match, Prince Alofa Fatu destroyed Glanville Simon in about 90 seconds with a top rope Samoan Splash. After the match, The Great Samu joined Fatu & Floyd Creatchman at the broadcast booth for an interview. Floyd says there is a lot of hype about Starrcade and while he's confident that Botswana Beast & Lord Humongous will retain the NWA World Tag Team Titles in Greensboro against Ole & Arn Anderson, he's offended that Samu & Fatu aren't in the NWA Canadian International Tag Team Championship Match and that Frank Valois preferred to bring Badd Company from the AWA to make this a Triangle Match instead with the Rockers and the champions, the Vachons. Floyd Creatchman is issuing an open challenge to any tag team in the NWA or in the world that are willing to come to Quebec City to face his Samoan hitmen at Starrcade. Floyd says he doesn't care where they come from, they will take them down and stake their claim in the territory's tag team division.

 

-Up next, Boris Zhukov squares off against Hillbilly Jim. This match was taped before King Tonga's attack on Hillbilly Jim the night before this show airs in syndication throughout Canada. The broadcast team mentions that Alexis Smirnoff & Baron Von Raschke will enter the $100,000 2-ring Battle Royal at Starrcade while Zhukov will be granted a rematch with Armand Rougeau for the Quebec Heavyweight Championship in Quebec City. Boris Zhukov defeats Jim after a stiff backbreaker after an 8-minute match.

 

-After the commercial break, the broadcast team shows footage of King Tonga's return to Lutte Internationale as he assaulted Jos LeDuc & Hillbilly Jim after their match in Toronto last night. Jos LeDuc joins the broadcast team for an interview. It is announced that Rick Martel will be making his first WCCW World Heavyweight Title defense in the territory against Jos LeDuc tonight. Jos says he's still fuming from what happened last night at the Coliseum and he's fully expecting King Tonga to do his worst again tonight in his title match. Jos says he's not gonna wait for Tonga to retaliate before settling their score. Jos wants a No DQ Match against King Tonga at Starrcade in Quebec City! LeDuc finishes up by saying that how Tonga acts after this announcement will be very telling of his response to his challenge!

 

-Main event time as a Cage was set up during Jos' interview and as Botswana Beast takes on Alexis Smirnoff. The cage is of course there to prevent any interference from the Creatchman Family or other Bolshevik Revolution member. Eddy Creatchman decides to join Guy Hauray & Édouard Carpentier at commentary for the main event and hypes how confident he is that his monsters will destroy the Andersons at Starrcade in Greensboro. The Brain says he's making the trip to Greensboro to witness this annihilation and he's very happy about all of this. The end comes as the Bolshevik Revolution shows up at ringside to intimidate the Brain but the rest of the Creatchman Family shows up as well and a huge melee ensues at the broadcast booth. The Brain chooses that moment to get close to the cage and somehow sneak his cane in the cage through the cracked door as Baron Von Raschke was trying to sneak himself. Beast used the cane on Smirnoff to capture the victory at the 12-minute mark. To conclude the show, the broadcast team announces this:

 

-Raymond Rougeau vs "Maniac" Matt Borne

-Jacques Rougeau vs Billy Robinson inside a Steel Cage

-Comments from Rick Martel, Ric Flair & Black Bart for their respective matches!

Meng is on a freaking tear.  Robinson is gonna need his head on straight real soon.  Ricky Martel is really on fire going into Starrcade and I like the buildup to the title match.

December 13th, 1985

Ottawa, ON

 

-Abdullah the Butcher beat Richard "Le Magnifique" Charland (w/Frenchy Martin) in 9:41

 

-Prince Alofa Fatu (w/Floyd Creatchman) beat "Mr. Electricity" Steve Regal in 13:41

 

10-Men Elimination Tag Team Match: NWA World Tag Team Champions The Creatchman Family (Botswana Beast & Lord Humongous), Killer Tim Brooks & The Moondogs beat Bob Backlund, WCCW World Heavyweight Champion Rick Martel, Ivan Putski, Jos LeDuc & Hillbilly Jim in 53:20. Botswana Beast & Lord Humongous were the sole survivors for their team, double-teaming Rick Martel after a sneak attack from The Great Samu. Eddy Creatchman gave some money at ringside to Samu afterwards, and it seems like it was another command from Ric Flair. Interesting, considering that Beast & Humongous are defending their titles against the Andersons at Starrcade...

Creatchman needs to learn to hand the money out backstage.  Much less incriminating. :)

NWA Lutte Internationale TV

Taped at CHLT-TV Studios, Sherbrooke, QC

Broadcasted December 14th, 1985

 

dieu.jpg220px-Nwalogobw.jpg

 

-The broadcast team welcomes everyone to the show as they hype this week's show with the main event featuring Jacques Rougeau vs Billy Robinson inside of a cage. Also in the broadcast, comments from Ric Flair and Rick Martel about Starrcade as well as Black Bart for his match with Jacques Rougeau, also inside a cage.

 

-To kick off this week's show, Raymond Rougeau takes on "Maniac" Matt Borne. The broadcast team says that Raymond will be in the corner of his brother Jacques in Quebec City while Matt Borne will be in Greensboro for the 2-ring Battle Royal. Borne is up to his dirty tricks early in the match but Raymond is able to counter Borne at every turn. At the end of the match, Borne attempts to zap Raymond while referee Adrien Desbois' back is turned after an accidental elbow but Raymond hits his Savate Kick to score the victory after a solid 10-minute match.

 

-To fill the rest of the show before the main event, the match between Black Bart and Jacques Rougeau at the Sportatorium is shown in its entirety, including the moment where a rag full of ether takes down Jacques, allowing Bart to score the victory and take the title. After the match, a promo from Black Bart is shown where he says he will humiliate Rougeau in his backyard in Quebec City and that the only reason there'll be a cage is because the people of Quebec City are scared that he'll beat them all up afterwards. Bart says that once he's finished with him, Jacques and his brother Raymond won't dare show their faces anywhere.

 

-There is also talk about the main event from Starrcade being moved from Greensboro to Quebec City after Quebec City won the bidding to host the main event. Ric Flair is first to talk saying that everything seems to be arranged for Rick Martel to unify both titles but it doesn't matter because he is the man and Martel isn't. Flair says he's coming to Quebec City to prove that he's the best wrestler alive today and they will party all night long afterwards at Château Frontenac, where he'll be staying for a few days. Later, Martel says that contrarily to Flair, he doesn't think that anything has been arranged for him. He earned everything the old fashioned way. He went to Dallas and beat Harley Race for the WCCW World Heavyweight Championship and he plans on  unifying this title and the NWA World Heavyweight Championship at Starrcade. Doing it in his hometown will just make things a bit sweeter. Martel says that Flair hasn't forgotten that he's the only man to have beaten him during the Great American Bash Tour and it's eating him alive. He won't leave any doubt at Starrcade that he can beat The Man.

 

-Finally, main event time as Jacques Rougeau squares off against Billy Robinson inside the cage. The cage is there to ensure no interference whatsoever from any party. Robinson has Sherri Martel at ringside and the broadcast team discuss the rumors of Sherri focusing on becoming the NWA World Women's Champion after Starrcade. Madusa is confirmed to be challenging The Fabulous Moolah at Starrcade for the title. A lengthy affair until TV time remains. As expected, The Sensationals made their presence felt roaming around the cage but all of a sudden, everything is stopped to a halt outside as The Masked Playboy shows up again, flowers in hand! Robinson screams Buddy Rose's name and both Bobby Jaggers and Bob Orton are chasing The Masked Playboy to the back but Robinson is so caught up in the whole thing that he forgets about Jacques Rougeau! Jacques is able to escape the cage through the door in perhaps a prelude to his title match vs Black Bart at Starrcade. Billy Robinson, irate, escapes the cage as well and goes to the broadcast booth, saying he's had enough of Buddy Rose and they're gonna end this once and for all. But this won't be a regular match as Billy has so much pent-up frustration that he wants to punish Buddy Rose. Therefore, Robinson challenges Buddy to a Texas Death Match at Starrcade! Will Buddy Rose accept?

I mean this as a compliment: You have a large number of wrestlers on your roster who don't ring a ton to the table in terms of in-ring talent, but I think I'd have watched the hell out of this show back int he 80s. Week after week you make chicken salad out of the likes of Hillbilly Jim, Lord Humongous, and Ivan Putski by  keeping the story-lines interesting and by carefully considering the match-ups. It's impressive.

I'll gladly take that as a compliment. I always take it as a challenge when I decide to bring those types of wrestlers because I know I have the type of workers on my roster who can maximize their use for me. I wouldn't have chosen to bring Botswana Beast & Lord Humongous from the AWA if I didn't have The Creatchman Family in tow.

That seemed like the talking points from a Flair promo if I ever heard one.  Finish for the main is great and the final piece in setting up BR vs. BR.  Michaels going almost an hour in 85 is an interesting choice. :)
