Hosted By: Gorilla Monsoon & Bobby the Brain Heenan
Matches from: Brantford, Ontario, Canada – Civic Centre

 

-Gorilla and Bobby put over all the happenings of 1985 and talk about kicking off 1986 in the right direction. They put over the issue with Hulk Hogan and Stan Hansen now as Ted Dibiase continues to find ways to hurt Hogan. Heenan says that he has got a shot for King Kong Bundy to put Hogan down and out and he will do it with malice in his heart. He says that he has made some SERIOUS money from Ted Dibiase and he is always looking in ways to invest it. Gorilla puts over the debut of Prime Time Wrestling next Monday Night on the USA Network. He and Jesse Ventura will be there to cover the action.

 

The Fabulous Ones w/ Jimmy Hart defeated Mark Smart & Erick Strong

-We get an inset with Jimmy Hart and he just rips into the Hart Foundation something awful! He says that they will never get a title shot and that Valentine & Honky are going to rip them apart baby!

Dino Bravo defeated Ken Lowes

Ed Ganter w/ Superstar Graham defeated Fredrick Charles

Don Muraco w/ Mr. Fuji defeated Mike Wallace

Curt Hennig defeated Donald Sterling

-A very good showcase for Curt Hennig. He is really top notch right now but the key component of this contest is that Bobby Heenan is talking about getting Curt Hennig to sign with him! He puts Hennig over in a big way and says that he would be a “perfect” fit for the Heenan Family! Hennig with a nice suplex and bridge for the 3-count! Heenan says he will be in touch with Hennig!

Obviously a smart move to book Dino in the main event in Montreal with Hogan. Considering that IRL, Vince never booked a title match for Dino in Montreal because he was way more over than Hogan, I can definitely imagine the crowd coming unglued for this main event at the Forum!

These Savage and Gino had to be off the charts fun stuff.

Rumble in the Bronx is a great card, Fabs vs. Demolition in a cage will be awesome!

Great things coming in 86! I'm liking the build of Curt Hennig. I noticed he got a pretty good win over Hercules. Will he join up with Heenan??? Hernandez vs. Windham should be a lot of fun. Can't wait to see what's in store for Stan Hansen!

Bravo in Montreal is such a smart move.  I wonder if Heenan and Hennig would be a good fit.  Seems like a reach. :)

WWF Presents: Wrestling Challenge
Hosted By: Gorilla Monsoon & Bobby the Brain Heenan
Matches from: Providence, RI – Civic Center

 

-Gorilla and Bobby open up this week putting over the big premiere of Prime Time Wrestling this Monday on the USA Network. They talk about the big card with Dino Bravo challenging Randy Savage for the IC title along with Barry Windham and Manny Fernandez taking on Rick Rude and Gino Hernandez, and finally the confrontation between Bret Hart and Greg Valentine!


Dino Bravo defeated Rich Michels

Randy Savage: Dino… Dino… where could you be? Right in my line of sight I see. Your name got the draw and now you step into the ring with the Macho King and the Intercontinental Champion. Everyone has talked about Gino Hernandez and Barry Windham but I have got my eyes on you and Billy Jack… I am going to put you down for good!

 

Bull Ganter w/ Superstar Graham defeated Rick Shields

 

The Tonga Kid defeated Steve Lombardi

-A good showcase for the returning Tonga Kid. He looks to be in tremendous shape. He gets an easy win with a big dropkick followed by a Samoan drop for the 3-count!

 

The Mercenaries w/ Mr. Fuji defeated Jean & John Blackfield

 

Gino Hernandez defeated Tom Shaw

Barry Windham: I got a very important message at my home last week that told me in order to get an IC title shot… it comes down to me and Gino Hernandez. Well Gino… you said it last week that it was a done deal… well consider this your warning pal. When we get into that ring…  I am going to show the world why I belong at the top and you are just another step!

WWF Presents: Superstars of Wrestling
Hosted By: Vince McMahon & Jesse ‘ The Body’ Ventura
Matches from: Providence, RI – Civic Center


-Jesse and Vince are putting over the big Prime Time show tomorrow. They announce that we’ll see Bret Hart vs Greg Valentine, Barry Windham & Manny Fernandez vs Rick Rude & Gino Hernandez, and an Intercontinental Championship match with Randy Savage taking on Dino Bravo. They also put over the big MSG show on January 20th throughout the show highlighting the big Special Battle Royal with 30-men and the tag team cage match!


Sting defeated Jose Louis Rivera

-The new kid on the block. He was known as the Blade Runner and continues to be known as that and Sting. No clear name but his intensity is real. He handles Rivera well enough here and finishes with a big splash in the corner and then goes up top and leaps for a big splash off the top for a roll up and 3-count! The crowd pops for the face painted phenom!

 

Hercules w/ Slick defeated Bob Bradley

-Hercules comes out with a new manager… (is that the 3rd in a couple of months?) Jesse puts over how this man is named Slick. He is from Kansas City and has got huge plans for Hercules and a couple of other names he will reveal when the time is right!

 

Greg Valentine & The Fabulous Ones defeated Brady Boone, Mike Jacobs, & Erick Strong

-A good six-man here as Jimmy Hart gets on and really pushes the big singles match tomorrow night with Bret taking on Valentine and the tag team cage match in MSG in a couple of weeks!

 

Curt Hennig defeated Ken Campbell

-Another solid showing for Curt Hennig. Jesse puts over how Hennig is in the King of the Ring Tournament in February… but more importantly he is in the eye of Bobby Heenan! Jesse says that Hennig would be smart to take Bobby’s offer and become the newest member of the Family! Hennig with the bridging suplex one more time here and he looks sharp and ready to strike!
 

The British Bulldogs defeated Los Conquistadors

-Davey Boy and Dynamite are back to a big ovation from the crowd. The Bulldogs look to be in tremendous shape and finish the Conquistadors off with a big powerslam/diving headbutt combo. They look as good as they did when they left if not better and the sky is the limit!

WWF Presents: Prime Time Wrestling

Hosted by Gorilla Monsoon & Jesse the Body Ventura

Matches from: Providence, RI – Civic Center

 

hqdefault.jpg

 

Gorilla: Welcome everyone to Prime Time Wrestling! I am Gorilla Monsoon joined here with Jesse the Body Ventura! Jesse, this is indeed a happening… a new show… a special one hour edition here tonight…

 

Jesse: All too often we see some of our top stars against up and comers… but tonight, we have got three matches that could main event any arena anywhere in the world Gorilla!

 

Gorilla: That’s right Jesse… we will see the Hitman, Bret Hart taking on Greg Valentine and he will have the Colonel in his corner!

 

Jesse: Jimmy Hart made the right choice with his men and he kicked the Harts to the curb… now he is going to send them down the river!

 

Gorilla: Please… we’ve got a big tag team match with Barry Windham & Manny Fernandez taking on Gino Hernandez and Rick Rude!

 

Jesse: Bobby Heenan has said that he is going to have the premiere family in 1986. It starts tonight with this audience and showing just what they’re made of… at the cost of Windham and Fernandez!

 

Gorilla: And our big main event… the Intercontinental Championship is on the line… Dino Bravo challenges Randy Savage!

 

Jesse: Savage has got a lot on his mind…  he may be overlooking Dino but I doubt it… the champion is the best and there’s a reason!

 

Gorilla: Plus, we will see the WWF Champion… Hulk Hogan! Right now let’s head to the ring!

 

Bret Hart vs Greg Valentine w/ Jimmy Hart

-Howard Finkel with the announcing here of both men. Jimmy Hart has got this crowd riled up in a big way! Valentine and Bret give the viewing audience on the USA Network a better glimpse at what the future of the WWF is going to look like. These guys pick up the pace for 12-minutes and they work their asses off. Gorilla and Jesse put it over in a huge way and talk about the possibilities of the Hart Foundation without Jimmy. We see both men get some offense but it is the heat that Valentine gets after working over Bret’s knee. He is looking to finish but Bret is able to break free. Bret is able to get some offense in and then an inverted atomic drop that pops the crowd as Valentine sells. Jimmy Hart gets up on the apron and distracts Bret but here comes Valentine and Bret ducks and tosses him into Jimmy and then grabs Valentine for a 1….2….3 roll up and victory! The crowd pops and Bret Hart rolls out of the ring. He walks over to Jesse and Gorilla up the aisle.

 

-Gorilla and Jesse then interview Bret who puts over the match. He doesn’t have the skills to pay the bills yet but he gets it done and the shot of Valentine being escorted back by security is well worth it!

 

*COMMERCIAL*

 

-Gorilla and Jesse are back and they put over the big issue between Barry Windham and the Heenan Family. They put over the NO DQ Match from MSG. They talk about how the team of Hernandez and Rude have been together before… but they didn’t have much luck then when they faced Windham and Santana for the tag titles.

 

Barry Windham & Manny Fernandez vs Gino Hernandez & Rick Rude w/ Bobby Heenan

-One of the real highlights here as this contest has got a lot of history. Windham has been at odds with the Heenan Family for quite sometime and tonight he gets his buddy Manny to help him out. This one is a fun 8-minute contest but it is Bobby Heenan who shines. He is outside the ring stirring up the shit and causes Windham to miss a tag to Manny when Fernandez is watching Heenan instead of the action. Windham ends up getting the big tag to Fernandez who comes in and hits the ropes as Windham is slow to his feet and then Fernandez NAILS WINDHAM WITH THE FLYING FOREARM! OMG! Windham is knocked out as Rude, Hernandez, and Fernandez lay the boots to him. They are stomping and kicking away as Gino picks him up for a SLINGSHOT SUPLEX! The crowd is going nuts here. Fernandez then picks up Windham with Rude and they deliver a SPIKE PILEDRIVER! OH MY! Windham is laid out as we see Bull Ganter and Superstar Graham along with Tito Santana run out as the heels walk off. They join Jesse and Gorilla...

 

-Jesse and Gorilla put over the action. Jesse is all about it and he is shaking everyone’s hands. Heenan is going wild putting over the Family. He says that Gino Hernandez is OFFICIALLY joining the King of the Ring tournament next month and he will win! He puts over King Kong Bundy and says that with the Ragin Bull, the Family is all but complete. There is one more spot and it belongs to Curt Hennig. He says that Hennig is the prime choice and he should be where he belongs. We see Windham being helped to the back and Prime Time has been explosive so far… when we come back… we will hear from Hulk Hogan!

*COMMERCIAL*

 

-We are back and at the announce booth Gorilla and Jesse welcome in Mean Gene Okerlund and the WWF Champion… Hulk Hogan!!

 

hulk-hogan-mean-gene.jpg

 

 

Mean Gene: Hulk, welcome in here to WWF Prime Time Wrestling! Everyone wants to know just how you are feeling after the recent attacks from King Kong Bundy and just recently Stan the Lariat Hansen!

 

Hulk Hogan: Well lemme tell you something Mean Gene. The last couple of months have been tough brother. I have had my ribs broken. I had my throat crushed by Hansen. Well brother… I am here… I am saying… come and get some more brother!

 

Mean Gene: A lot of rumors are circulating… saying that Ted Dibiase purchased a bounty on you and Stan Hansen cashed it in. That along with the money he gave Bobby Heenan for the services of King Kong Bundy. Hulk… is the target on your back bigger than ever?

 

Hulk Hogan: Mean Gene when you’ve got this title right here… this is the biggest target in the WWF brother. I am standing here saying come and test me! Stan Hansen, I know you from Japan brother. You and I have traveled the road brother…. And I am here saying you came to the WWF and brother the rules have changed. I am throwing it down right now… I don’t want to wait… I want to see you in that ring!

 

Mean Gene: Hulk Hogan and Stan Hansen… surely that can be something special for the… wait just a moment… what in the…

 

StanHansen.jpg

 

-HANSEN IS HERE! He comes out throwing that cowbell around and Hogan rips off his shirt! Gorilla and Jesse are putting this over as officials and agents run out. Pat Patterson gets rocked with a nice right hand from Hansen but other than that… nothing happens. Hogan and Hansen are jawing at one another and being held back!

 

*COMMERCIAL*

 

-We are back and Jesse and Gorilla are putting the night over in a big way. They announce that on February the 8th, at Saturday Night’s Main Event… it will be Hulk Hogan and Stan Hansen one on one! We will hear from both men more next week! We are going to finish things off with a big Intercontinental Championship contest… let's head to the ring.

 

INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP

Dino Bravo vs Randy Savage w/ Elizabeth

-A good finale on what has been an awesome night of action, matches, and angles. This one goes 11-minutes and it is a great showcase of both men. Savage is still heel and acting like it. Jesse is putting him over in a big way and says he should be next in line to face Hulk Hogan for the title. Gorilla agrees but also says that Savage has to hold on to the title and Bravo is putting forth a great effort tonight. The big moment sees Dino Bravo hoist up Savage over his head and toss him on the other side of the ring! Bravo comes with some big clotheslines and Savage goes out of the ring to the floor. Bravo comes to follow but Savage is able to counter and get the upperhand. He lures him back into the ring and sets him up for a big double axe-handle smash but goes for another and Bravo catches him! He puts him up in the airplane spin and Savage is out of it! Dino is looking to finish with the sidewalk slam but Savage goes behind and rolls him up with a handfull of tights for the 3-count! Savage steals it! He grabs the title and shows the world that he is willing to do whatever it takes to keep the title.

 

-Jesse and Gorilla put the night over one more time. They talk about Savage and Bravo and Savage’s ability to keep the title. They put over the issue with Fernandez and Windham. They talk about how next week we will see the British Bulldogs right here on Prime time along with Tito Santana taking on Nikolai Volkoff and Billy Jack Haynes vs King Kong Bundy in the main event!

Is it true that, in Albany, they call Stan Hansen "Steamed Ham-sen?" 

 

Your layout, your use of photos, and the quotes from the announcers perfectly cover what I imagine a Prime Time Wrestling episode would feel like in this world.

I appreciate all the feedback fellas. That's good to know you guys are reading and like the direction I'm going. I'm going to get around this weekend to getting more in-depth with everybody stuff and providing more feedback it's just been crazy with school starting back up. I think that we are on the verge of something really exciting and 1986 with everything and hopefully Primetime can be one of those fun events that will be a weekly staple. I do think that while the WWF did go with Monday Night Raw, in this era they missed out on the big time TV shows and studio tapings like world class or wcw.

Great debut of Primetime! I'm loving Hansen as the current foe for Hogan. Hansen always brings something big to the table and is a legitimate threat to Hogan. What a heel turn by Fernandez! The Awesome Twosome are together. Bret Hart is getting his moments to shine. That sneaky Savage steals another one LOL. 1986 is going to be a great year.

Before I go on to details I want to say that your presentation of the WWF is really great.  It takes all of the fun things about the WWF of the time and uses them.  But it also fixes a lot of the shit aspects of it.  No 20 minute draws between guys nobody wanted to see anyway to fill time.  You find ways to put guys out there who have things going on, which is huge.

 

Prime Time is a huge success.  And given the way Lutte and MACW have been performing the WWF would have had to step up their game to keep their status.  Hansen vs. Hogan is easily one of Hogan's best matchups ever, looking forward to it.  Fernandez turning would have made the Heenan family into probably my favorite stable that doesn't involve the number 4 ever.
