At this point, Rock Riddle getting up on the ring apron is like Ric Flair going to the top turnbuckle: You know it is going to end badly for him, but it's entertaining as hell to watch. 

 

You're doing a great job building up Singh as a monster. Looking forward to the Inoki bout.

 

Tony St. Clair had no chance there, as it was basically three-on-one. That pays off nicely with the "turn about is fair play" spot later. 

 

I'm loving all of the out-of-control brawls all over the place recently. Another good one here. 

 

When that 6-man is not even the main event, you know you have a stacked card.

 

Love how the Battle Royal builds off the action earlier on the card. Of course, The Lariat vs Hacksaw is gonna be awesome. 

 

Jim Cornette behaving like a big baby is always entertaining. Taylor vs Martel is gonna be another good match!

Holy crap, am I pumped for Hacksaw Jim Duggan vs Stan Hansen! It's gonna be heavy-hitting for sure. I was actually expecting Harley Race to win this one and getting a shot at dual gold but I'm sure Harley will get another crack at it eventually. :)

Cornette was great on TV.  I would go for both Martel match-ups myself.  The Cobra and the Assassins really put a working over on Jay and Sugar.  I like the feud you have going that builds both American Made and the Blondes.  Travis getting a chance to shine is great.

 

Jay vs. Robinson would have been a fun match.  Loved the chaotic six man.  Hansen winning the Battle Royal is a stroke of genius,  really looking forward to that match.  Big win for Taylor.

Great show here!  Really looking forward to Hansen vs Duggan.  Thanks for using Slater.  That would have been an awesome match to see.

Yea, I really went back and forth with match placement for the Greenville Card. I try to send the fans home happy as often as I can. Due to the finishes of the Battle Royal and 6 man tag, I decided to put Taylor/Slater on last. I figured Taylor winning with the racket and a tantrum by Cornette would do the job :)

Ho Ho! Rock Riddle is learning his lesson. His interference actually led to a win for his man today. Good for him!

Duggan's looking strong heading into his huge match with Hansen.

Pritchard is turning into a really good TV champ.  I love the Stud Stable being all over every show.  Valiant and Rich continue to feud.  Really looking forward to Duggan taking on Hansen.

Agreed about Tom Pritchard. He's turning into your hidden gem for Mid-Atlantic. Who knows, he could eventually turn into a jack-of-all-trades for any card of yours!

With the sad news about Paul Jones today... I was reminiscing about his feud with Jimmy Valient... then I realized my memories were not so much of the actual Paul Jones Army vs Boogie Woogie man feud, but rather of stuff from this thread. I don't mean any disrespect by that at all. It was honestly kind of nice, like I somehow had fresh memories of the man, even if they are memories that you created.

To be honest, I don't know how many of us have vivid memories of Paul Jones other than the Jimmy Valiant feud. It's the only ones I have of him.

HUGE WINS for Prichard and Duggan! Boogie vs. Rich with Paul Jones is a great twist on the Valiant vs. Jones feud. I'm enjoying seeing Johnny Rich as a heel.

Hacksaw is coming in in a HUGE way already. Great to see him getting the kind of a push.  On the other side of the coin... how hard the mighty have fallen in regards to Backlund. Obviously your booking is sound but he just doesn't have the luck tonight... hopefully he does in the future.

Maybe the mighty truly has fallen.  Wrestlingdata.com says Backlund did not wrestle between 1985 and 1988.  Does anyone know if this is true?

I think it is true. After leaving the WWF he had a short run with the ill-fated Pro Wrestling USA, which folded in the summer of '85. 

 

He had one match for the UWF (Japanese Shoot-Style promotion) in December 1988, and another in 1989 (both worth watching) but as far as I know that was it from the summer of '85 until his comeback in the 1990s.

MACW @ WTBS Studios TV Aired 4-19-86

 

 

Schiavone: Hello again everybody and welcome to another edition of Mid Atlantic Championship Wrestling. Once again my partner David Crockett wont be joining me today, as him and his brother Jim are involved in some serious negotiations with a huge wrestling superstar. As I mentioned last week, the Crockett's have offered this man the most lucrative contract in Mid Atlantic history. I understand they are very close to signing this individual and hope to make the gigantic announcement next week. I do know that the Crockett's will be attending the big 2 day event this weekend, I'm talking about the Clash of Champions, Spring Spectacular. That's right, April 19th in Baltimore and April 20th in Philadelphia. We do have a big change to the event that I will get to momentarily but first let's here some pre recorded comments from the winner of the 2nd Battle Royal and the man who will be facing Hacksaw Duggan for the vacated United States Title in Philly, fans let's hear from the one and only Stan Hansen.

 

Pre Recorded Comments

 

Hansen: (Hits his cowbell on the ground) Stan Hansen is coming to Philadelphia to beat up Hacksaw Jim Duggan! (Another hit with the cowbell) And I'm going to leave Hacksaw Duggan lying in the gutter when I'm done with him! (Another hit with cowbell) Then when I'm done with that I'm gonna walk over that beaten down body of his and I'm gonna grab my United States Title and I'm gonna hold it high in the air over his beaten up and bruised body! (Cowbell hit to the ground)  

 

Back Live

 

Schiavone: There you have it fans, the winners of the Battle Royal's Hacksaw Duggan and Stan Hansen for the US Title at the Spring Spectacular in Philly. Now onto the bad news, fans earlier this week in Columbia SC, Billy Travis was wrestling in a singles match while his partner Joe Savoldi was participating in a Light Heavyweight championship tournament in Puerto Rico. Well, let's show you the footage.

 

Footage from Columbia

 

Billy Travis hits the side slam on Mike Sharpe to get the pin! Travis is celebrating with the fans when The Stud Stable, Rob Fuller and Jimmy Golden run in the ring and nail Travis from behind. They swing Travis to the ropes and double clothesline him, then double body slam him. Fuller grabs Travis as Golden gets on the 2nd turnbuckle and they hit the Spike Piledriver! 

 

Back Live

 

Schiavone: Fans with me right now are the current US Tag Team Champions, the Stud Stable. Just what was the meaning of that despicable attack?

 

Golden: Hey! That young punk wanted to shoot his mouth off last week and well, we had to put that punk in his place by dropping him on his head. (Golden bursts out laughing)

 

Fuller: (laughing) Well put Jimmy. You know Tony Schiavone, that drop on his head just might knock some sense into that kid.

 

Schiavone: Well thanks to that disgusting attack, Billy Travis wont be able to compete at the Spring Spectacular, therefore Hot Property will be unable to challenge for the US titles.

 

Fuller: (Smiling) Well then, it looks like the US Champions, the Stud Stable, will get a much deserved night off. My apologies to our fans, who paid good money for a ticket to watch us, but our challengers just don't have what it takes. Crying shame Tony Schiavone, it truly is.

 

Schiavone: Well, I've been told that you will be defending your titles that night. That's right, in Baltimore you will be defending the US Titles against the team of Rocky Johnson and Wildcat Wendell Cooley, a team that's been on quite a roll lately.

 

Fuller and Golden throw a fit.

 

Golden: You see Robert! You see! Once again we are the victims here!

 

Fuller: Valid point Jimmy. Tony Schiavone, we are the champs and we should decide who and when we defend these titles against. A rag tag team like this Johnson and Cooley shouldn't even be in the ring with us! This is injustice at its best. Well Jimmy, looks like we've got two new boys to make an example of.

 

Commercial Break

 

Terry Taylor vs. Jay Jones

 

Taylor starts off with a couple headlock takeovers. Taylor has Jones up and drops him back with a vertical suplex. Taylor drops a knee then picks Jones up, swings him to the ropes and hits the flying 5 arm for the pin!

 

Schiavone: Terry, you look more than ready for your shot at the NWA World title in Baltimore. Any thoughts on the champ, Rick Martel?

 

Taylor: Tony, I told you after Starrcade I was a changed man. I told you I was going to go at it on talent and ability. Well I did that and look where it got me. I couldn't be more excited for this opportunity. Rick Martel has been a true fighting champion and I have all the respect in the world for him. But make no mistake about it, I'm going into Baltimore with one thing on my mind and that's winning the NWA World Title.

 

Schiavone: Ok fans, in what should be an outstanding match up, Rick Martel defends the NWA title against Terry Taylor, Baltimore, Spring Spectacular. Lets go back to the ring.

 

Blackjack Mulligan vs Vic DeMarco

 

Mulligan swings DeMarco to the ropes and nails him with a flying back elbow smash. Mulligan stomps away on DeMarco then throws him out of the ring. The fans boo as Mulligan goes out and stomps on DeMarco on the outside. Mulligan chokes away and punishes DeMarco. The fans roar as Jimmy Snuka runs out and starts hammering away on Mulligan! The bell rings as Snuka pounds on Mulligan. Mulligan starts to fight back and the two are brawling all around the ring. Wrestlers from the back come out to break it up.

 

Commercial Break

 

Schiavone: Ok, things have settled down. Boy, I would hate to be the referee assigned to that match as they collide this weekend at the Spring Spectacular. Fans, don't forget, tonight we have a huge 6 man tag match as Polynesian Power and Tony St. Clair take on the Caspian Empire and Billy Robinson. Should be a great one. Well with me right now is Don Kernodle and Corporal Kirchner, the tag team known as American Made.

 

Kernodle: Hold on Tony. Kirch, do you now see what I've been talking about? Why does Johnson and Cooley get the US Title match this weekend? It should be us getting that match. Why are we getting overlooked as usual?

 

Schiavone: Wait a second Don, you guys have an opportunity. At the Spring Spectacular, you guys will face the Fabulous Blondes with the winners getting a guaranteed shot at the US titles.

 

Kirchner: There you go Don. Come on buddy, we have to stay focused on the Blondes. We'll get our shot.

 

Kernodle: (Pauses and calms down) Yea, ok, you're right. Lets do this!

 

They high five and exit.

 

"The Great One" David Sammartino vs. Carl Hillman

 

Sammartino continues to yell at the fans until Hillman rolls him up and almost pins him. Sammartino stomps away on Hillman then body slams him and follows with a knee drop. Sammartino swings Hillman hard into the turnbuckles then clamps on the bear hug to get the submission victory! Sammartino yells at the fans, all the way to the podium.

 

Schiavone: Aggressive win tonight David. Now, Bob Backlund has accepted your challenge this weekend. May I ask why you challenged him?

 

Sammartino: Tony, you really are a fool. I mean I cant believe you actually get paid for asking idiotic questions like that. The reason is simple. I am the Great One and when you're great, you have to prove how great you are by beating up wrestlers who think that they are great. Bob Backlund just oozes with arrogance every time he sets foot in that ring. Well I'm sick of it! He needs to be taught a lesson in the ring and this weekend that's exactly what I'm going to do!

 

Schiavone: David Sammartino ladies and gentlemen. Fans let's go to the ring for exciting tag team action.

 

The Steiner Brothers vs. Aaron Arbuckle and Lloyd London 

 

The Steiner's get the crowd going with some high powered offense. Rick and Scott trade off with a variety of suplexes. Rick swings London to the ropes and nails him with a clothesline. Scott comes in and hits a backbreaker. Scott hoists London up on his shoulders, then tags in Rick. Rick jumps off the top rope and hits the bulldog to get the pin!

 

Commercial Break

 

"The Universal Heartthrob" Austin Idol vs. Alex Portman

 

Idol swings Portman to the ropes and back drops him then jumps up and drops an elbow. Idol grabs Portman's leg and drops an elbow on it then wraps him up in the Las Vegas Leglock to get the submission win! Idol flexes his biceps and winks at the crowd. The crowd boos as Rock Riddle strolls out and points up at Idol. He starts yelling at Idol. Idol walks across the ring, towards him. Tom Prichard runs in the ring behind Idol but Idol turns around and punches away then swings Prichard to the ropes but Prichard grabs the ropes and slides out of the ring. Riddle comforts Prichard as Idol motions around his waist.

 

Schiavone: Oh my, fans, Tom Prichard will defend the TV title against Austin Idol, this weekend at the Spring Spectacular. Back to the ring as Tiger Jeet Singh makes his official television debut.

 

Tiger Jeet Singh vs. Brad Kimber

 

Singh runs around the ring, swinging his sword around at the fans. Singh runs into the ring and attacks Kimber before the bell rings. Singh stomps on Kimber then hits him several times with his sword. Kimber gets busted open as officials run in to stop this. The match never officially began. Singh looks into the camera and yells "Inoki!"

 

Commercial Break

 

Mark Youngblood vs. Alex Portman

 

Youngblood swings Portman to the ropes and puts him down with a thrust shot. Youngblood picks Portman up and swings him into the turnbuckles then follows with a running boot to the face. Portman staggers forward, spins around and falls down. Youngblood goes out on the apron and hits the Slingshot Splash for the pin! The fans cheer Mark as he heads to the podium.

 

Schiavone: Ok Mark, this weekend, it's you and the legendary Mil Mascaras facing the team of the Assassins led by the Original Assassin.

 

Mark: Tony, you know I've had problems with the Cobra and the Assassins. It seems the Assassin always sent in his team when I had the upper hand on the Cobra. Well, the same thing happened to my partner, Mil Mascaras the last time he faced the Cobra. Well this weekend, we get the Assassins and Assassin rest assured we're getting serious payback on your goons.

 

Commercial Break

 

"Mr. Wonderful" Paul Orndorff vs. Gary Williams

 

Orndorff swings Williams to the ropes and hits the high knee then follows with a forearm drop. Orndorff scoop slams Williams then gives the signal as the crowd roars.

Schiavone: Mr. Wonderful, this weekend, it's you and Harley Race for the Mid Atlantic Championship.

 

Orndorff: Tony, I have waited patiently and now I finally get my shot at Harley Race and the Mid Atlantic Championship. Harley Race, you can kiss that title goodbye because it's going around my waist! You've attacked me and you have used my move, the piledriver on me. Come the Spring Spectacular, I'm going to piledrive your head right through the mat!

 

Commercial Break

 

Schiavone: Fans before we get to the big 6 man tag match, with me right now is JJ Dillon. JJ, you made a huge wave by bringing in King Kong Bundy and now it's Bundy taking on Ole Anderson this weekend.

 

JJ: Tony, I carried Ole Anderson for a long time. I made him relevant again and how does he thank me? By punching me! Ole, your days are numbered and your career is in serious jeopardy. When the walking path of destruction, King Kong Bundy gets his hands on you...well your just finished. I wont lie Tony, I'm going to take pleasure in seeing Ole suffer and suffer you will Ole.

 

Polynesian Power and Tony St. Clair vs. Caspian Empire and Billy Robinson

 

All 6 men start fighting as the bell rings. Polynesian and St. Clair swing Caspian and Robinson to the ropes and hit a triple back body drop, then follow with a triple drop kick, sending Caspian and Robinson through the ropes. Polynesian and St. Clair keep the momentum rolling until an eye gouge by Smirnoff on Tui stops it. Smirnoff swings Tui into the corner and Sheik and Robinson kick and choke him. Robinson and Sheik choke Tui as Smirnoff kicks away. Sakalia and St. Clair have enough and charge over. Everybody is brawling in the corner. The Ref loses control and signals for the bell, calling for a double disqualification. The bell is ringing as the men keep fighting.

 

Commercial Break

 

Hacksaw Jim Duggan vs. Dave Penson

 

Duggan swings Penson to the ropes and knocks him down with a shoulder block. Duggan follows with a running knee drop. Duggan stomps around the ring then gets in a 3 point stance.

I hope American Made can keep things together if they don't win that match.  Race vs. Orndorff and Taylor vs. Martel should both be great matches.  Johnson and Cooley have their hands full with the Stud Stable.  St. Clair and Robinson has been a great feud and I expect it to stay that way.  Snuka and Mulligan will settle their differences but I don't think it will be in Philly.  Speaking of Philly, they get my favorite match of the bunch, Hansen vs. Duggan.

Curiosity over who the huge signing will be and anticipation for Hacksaw vs Lariat are pushing all other thoughts out of my mind after reading that.

What a card!
 
Love the finish in the opener.
 

Rheingans vs Backlund should be a really good feud featuring a lot of scientific wrestling, but with a clear good guy/bad guy dynamic.  

 
Ole may have lost his match, but at least he got some revenge on Dillon.
 

NEW US TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS!!! Those glitter robes don't look so good without the tag belts to go with them.


I think that's exactly how I would have booked Antonio Inoki vs. Tiger Jeet Singh in America. Emphasizing Singh's strengths and downplaying his weaknesses, Heyman style. 

 
Nice finish to a very good Mid Atlantic Title Bout, letting Race keep the title but making Orndorff look strong. 
 
If you are gonna go face vs face in the main event of a big show, it better be an excellent match... and Martel and Taylor definitely delivered with some great near-falls and a nice show of class at the end.
