MACW @ WTBS Studios- TV Aired 3-15-86
Schiavone: Hello again everybody and welcome to another edition of Mid Atlantic Championship Wrestling, with me as always David Crockett. David, lot going on in Mid Atlantic. We're coming off that huge Omni show and we have a new Television champion.
David: That's right Tony, the Doctor of Desire, Tom Prichard defeated Terry Taylor to win the title. We'll hear from the champ and Rock Riddle later on. Riddle will be a busy man tonight as his Fabulous Blondes will take on the Nightmares.
Schiavone: Boy, those teams have some history. Also tonight the Cobra will take on Chris Youngblood, Rocky Johnson will be in action as will Billy Robinson. The United States tag team champions, the Stud Stable will be in the ring.
David: Pedro Morales will be in the ring as well and in the main event, Terry Taylor will clash with Alexis Smirnoff. All that and we will have the much anticipated debut of 'Mr. Wonderful' Paul Orndorff.
Schiavone: Well David, I'm sure many people know this by now and that is Magnum TA has left Mid Atlantic. We want to take this opportunity and thank Magnum for all his contributions and fond memories.
David: Tony, Magnum leaves a huge void here but rest assured he's still a member of the NWA and we look forward to watching his career continue to blossom over in the UWF. Magnum will be in good hands with Bill Watts.
The 4 Horsemen and JJ Dillon come walking out.
JJ: Well boys, we hate to say we told you so but we told you so. The 4 Horsemen and Chicky Starr walked into the Omni and proved to everybody that they are the most dominating group in wrestling.
Flair: Whoo! You're looking at the best in the world, right here! You talk about Magnum TA, I gave Magnum such a beating that he packed his bags and left. Now, the Nature Boy moves on. The NWA is sending in the big guns to try and take this title from me. This weekend in Norfolk, Lutte sends in Raymond Rougeau to wrestle me.
Tully: Hold on Ric, don't even waste your time worrying about Raymond. When I was up there, I gave him a wrestling lesson and trust me he's not in the Horsemen's league. Speaking of the Rougeaus, next week his brother Jacques is coming in and thanks to my man JJ here, he's got to defend his Canadian International title against yours truly. This is great, Ric gets to beat up Raymond this weekend and I get to beat Jacques for his title next weekend. Boys, the next two weeks will be some serious partying.
Arn: As mentioned, you're looking at the most premier dominant group in the wrestling world. These 4 fingers represent the symbol of excellence. These NWA tag titles represent the best. Now, the Road Warriors claim they deserve another shot at these. It's obvious they have more brawn than brains.
Ole: Road Warriors, you might think your tough but I see right through you. You hide behind the muscles and face paint, all smoke and mirrors. The next time you get into the ring with the Andersons, I guarantee you're not walking out.
Flair: Whooooo! David Crockett, Tony Schiavone, the Horsemen are riding high and there's nobody that can bring us down! Whooooooo!
Schiavone: Ok fans, the 4 Horsemen, lets go to the ring.
Rocky Johnson vs. Roger Murphy
Johnson kicks off the show with a bang as he hits Murphy with a couple standing drop kicks then follows with a body slam. Johnson nails Murphy with a back breaker then rolls him over in the Boston Crab for the victory!
Schiavone: With me right now is the former TV champ, Terry Taylor. Terry I know you must be disappointed but here you are tonight, ready for action.
Taylor: Tony, yes I'm upset, yes I'm disappointed but I'm not going sit at home and stew about it. No way! I'm going to get back on track and get that TV title back. It starts tonight with Smirnoff and mark my words, Terry Taylor will be champ again!
Schiavone: Ok, look forward to that match later on. Back to the ring.
Billy Robinson vs. Tim Straw
Robinson shows off his arsenal of take downs on Straw. Robinson swings Straw to the ropes and nails him with a running forearm smash. Robinson executes a double underhook suplex and gets the pin! The fans boo as Robinson heads to the podium.
David: Well Billy, it looked like frustration got the best of you at the Omni. I mean you and Tony St. Clair were having a dandy of a match and then you go crazy with a chair. Why did you have to do that?
Billy: David, I didn't have to do that, I wanted to do that. I proved in that match that I am by far the more superior wrestler. I countered everything that phony St. Clair pulled out. After it was obvious he wasn't a challenge, I wanted to rid Mid Atlantic of that wrestling imposter once and for all. I cant having him embarrassing the great UK any longer. Now everybody can enjoy watching a true wrestling great from the UK. And only a man with my reputation and honor can represent the UK like that.
Schiavone: Fans with me right now is Number One Paul Jones and Johnny Rich.
Jones: Quiet Schiavone, Johnny has something to say!
Rich: (Bandage on forehead) I did it! I said I would do it and I did it! I whipped Brett Sawyer in the Omni and I ran him out of town. I cant tell you how good I feel right now. Paul, thank you so much for believing in me. You have done so much for me and because of you my career has been reborn. Johnny Rich is on fire!
Jones: I always knew you had the goods Johnny, you just needed somebody to help you unleash your full potential. Now, speaking of that, I want Wildcat Wendell Cooley to come out here. Wendell, come on out, lets talk.
The fans cheer as Wendell comes out. Jones and Rich are smiling at him. Rich pats him on the back.
Jones: Now Wendell, we talked this week and I know you weren't thinking straight. I have to say you must of been out of your mind because you have turned down my numerous offers to join the Paul Jones Army.
The fans cheer as Wendell gives them a smile.
Jones: Now I'm going to give you one last chance. I like you and can do wonders for your mediocre career. Johnny Rich is full proof of what I can do. Don't be a fool Wendell, join my army and you'll see what I can do for you.
Wendell: Paul, I told you I appreciate the offer but I'm not interested in taking shortcuts to get to the top. So my answer is still no. Thank you.
Wendell starts to walk away but Jones grabs his arm and swings him around.
Jones: You cant just come out and embarrass me like that!
Wendell pushes Jones. Rich grabs Wendell but Wendell hammers away on him. The Devil's Duo runs out and attacks Wendell. They start stomping away. The fans cheer as Rocky Johnson runs out and cleans house. Rocky picks up Wendell and helps him to the back.
Schiavone: Oh my that was quite a moment. Well it looks like Wendell has found an ally in one Rocky Johnson. Fans when we come back, the debut of Paul Orndorff.
'Mr. Wonderful' Paul Orndorff vs. Gary Williams
Orndorff shows off his power by body slamming Williams several times. He swings Williams to the ropes and nails him with a clothesline. Orndorff picks Williams up and crashes him down with the piledriver for the pin! Orndorff heads to the podium.
David: Fantastic television debut for Mr. Wonderful. Fans now is a great time to mention that in May, Mid Atlantic will be sending 4 wrestlers as entries in the Johnny Rougeau Memorial Cup tournament. Those wrestlers will be Harley Race, Terry Taylor, Tom Prichard and my guest at this time Paul Orndorff. Paul, great to have you here.
Paul: Thank you David Crockett. I'm here to meet the best and beat the best.
The fans boo as David Sammartino walks out.
Sammartino: Whoa Whoa Whoa! Wait just one minute. This guy waltzes in here and automatically gets an entry in the Cup? I mean, what's that all about? Harley Race, I get, Tom Prichard, I get, Terry Taylor, well I sort of get, but this guy? This guy hasn't done anything here and he gets in? If anyone should be going, it should be me, the Great One.
David Crockett: Hold on David, this man is a former world champion and...
Sammartino: Key word, former. Now I've been beating legends fair and square so I should be going, plain and simple. I'll tell you what, if you have any kind of ethics, morals and guts then why don't you wrestle me here next week and put your entry on the line.
Orndorff: Kid, you want a match with Mr. Wonderful? You got one and yea I'll put my entry on the line. So it's on for next week and you better bring a lunch.
Orndorff rubs his hand on Sammartino's head and walks away as Sammartino throws a tantrum.
Sammartino: He's gonna pay for that!

The Ref regains control as all 4 men started the match off with a brawl. Timbs works over Davis with some knee drops then drops a leg drop and tags in Crews. Crews waits for Davis to get up then takes him down with a flying shoulder block. Riddle is cheering his guys on.

Crews helps Timbs to the outside as Riddle is jumping up and down hugging them.
Schiavone: With me right now is the new TV Champion, Tom Prichard and Rock Riddle. Well Rock, your Agency seems to be on a roll.
Riddle: Tony, Tony, Tony, oh it's great to be alive, I just wish these idiot fans could show some proper respect for the Agency. You just saw my Fabulous Blondes lay waste to the Nightmares. Oh it wont be long before they have some gold and speaking of gold, doesn't that title look so good on The Doctor's shoulder? It just fits so well and you wear it well champ.
Prichard: Thank you Rock. Hey the Doctor of Desire is the real deal baby and this here title says so. My stock has risen and its only the beginning. I've got the TV title and in a few weeks I'm heading to Canada to win the prestigious Cup.
Riddle: That's what being an A lister is all about baby. You people are looking at a true superstar. AH Tony, it's so great to be around true professionals.
Schiavone: Oh brother, fans lets go to the ring.
US Tag Champs The Stud Stable (Rob Fuller/Jimmy Golden) vs. Steve Ramsey and Brad Kimber
The Stud Stable tear apart their opponents as they swing Kimber to the ropes, kick him in the mid section and double suplex him back for the pin! They head to the podium.
David: You guys looked terrific tonight and are enjoying a good reign as United States Tag Team Champions. I understand you have some news.
Rob: Why yes we do Tony. Now its some rather unfortunate news and it saddens even my heart to say but my brother Ron has gone on to other things. You see he's a business man and when business calls, well my brother goes.
David: This doesn't have anything to do with his loss against Jimmy Snuka at the Omni, does it?
Golden: Shut your dirty rotten mouth Crockett! How dare you! Ron Fuller fears no man let alone a savage like that Jimmy Snuka. Since you brought up Snuka's name, well lets just say he better have eyes in the back of his head.
David: Care to clarify?
Rob: Just be patient David, now lets talk about our reign as champions. We've beaten the Soul Patrol, we've beaten the Nightmares and we'll beat any team that gets in our way. David, my friend, you can sure bet on that.
Schiavone: Fans I wanted to give you an update on the condition of Spike Huber after that assault by the Devil's Duo last week but we haven't heard from Spike since then. As soon as we here something, we'll let you know. Right now I've been informed that next week the Devil's Duo will take on the team of Wendell Cooley and Rocky Johnson, should be a good one. Well, joining me now is the Assassin along with the Cobra. The Cobra had a marvelous showing against Mil Mascaras at the Omni, but then after the match, the Assassins attacked Mascaras and the Cobra joined in. Care to explain?
Assassin: Tony, if your going to make a splash somewhere then you do it against the best in the world. The Cobra is one of the most gifted and athletic wrestlers in the world. The man is a wrestling machine and also a very wise man because he's accepted my services. I not only have the most brutal tag team in wrestling but now I have a wrestler who brings everything to the table. Now just watch what he does against Chris Youngblood.
The Cobra w/The Assassin vs. Chris Youngblood
I'm sure Mark Youngblood would be in his brother's corner tonight but he's booked in Lutte right now. Chris starts out strong with some chops then swings Cobra to the turnbuckles and follows with a boot to the face. Chris hip tosses Cobra over then hits a body splash and cover 1..2..Kick out! Chris swings Cobra into the opposite turnbuckles and charges in, but Cobra runs forward and hits a knee strike. Cobra drops several knees on Chris's head then picks him up and body slams him. Cobra gets up on the top rope and nails a Senton for the pin! The Assassin is yelling something at the Cobra. Cobra picks up Chris and drops him with a kneeling reverse piledriver! Cobra gets back up on the top rope and crashes down with another Senton! Cobra gives Chris a few more kicks then gets up on the ropes and again crashes down with a Senton! Wresters from the back come out. The Assassin raises the Cobra's arm to the booing crowd.
Pedro Morales vs. Alex Portman
Morales body slams Portman then backs up. Portman staggers up and Morales takes him down with the Caribbean Lift for the pin!
David: Great win for a fired up Pedro Morales. Well, my guests at this time Alexis Smirnoff and the Iron Sheik, collectively known as the Caspian Empire.
Sheik: David Crockett, everybody comes out and talks about being the most powerful. Nobody is more powerful than the Caspian Empire. Terry Taylor, you get into our business and tonight you feel our power!
Smirnoff: Terry Taylor, I am no stepping stone to better things for you, its the other way around. You will be taught a severe lesson tonight.
David: Ok, that match is next.
Terry Taylor vs. Alexis Smirnoff w/The Iron Sheik
The bell doesn't even ring as Smirnoff and Sheik attack Taylor and put the boots to him. They rip off his robe and start a beat down. Smirnoff drops a knee from the 2nd rope on Taylor's back and Sheik clamps on the Camel Clutch! The fans go into a thunderous roar as Hacksaw Duggan charges the ring!!! Smirnoff runs at him but Duggan clotheslines him! Sheik stands up and Duggan runs him over with a shoulder block! Duggan gets in a 3 point stance.
