NWA Lutte Internationale/International Wrestling TV LIVE!
May 10th, 1986
Quick and dirty results recap
-To kick us off, the broadcast booth welcomes NWA World Heavyweight Champion Rick Martel for an interview. Rick Martel is asked about the recent savage attack by Nikita Koloff, which cost Koloff the UWF World Heavyweight Championship after being stripped of the belt by Bill Watts. Martel says that he won't stand down from any attacks by Koloff. Martel thanks Ole Anderson & Magnum TA for standing up for him but he says it's now time for him to take the fight out to Nikita himself. Martel says that everyone advised him not to do this but he cannot let Nikita act the way he does indefinitely. So, he's gonna ask NWA President Bob Geigel to sanction a match between him and Nikita Koloff as soon as possible. He says there's a possibility he might not win this but at least, he'll be able to walk out of this with his head held up high. Jos LeDuc interrupts Martel's promo and shows him respect for the way he's been handling things. He says he's taking the same route with the Samoan SWAT Team and he's done taking crap from them. LeDuc says he found himself a tag team partner and wants a tag title match with the Samoan SWAT Team next week in Avonlea, SK. But this is then and this is now. Jos wants a shot at Rick Martel's championship. Rick Martel says he won't have to ask twice; out of respect for Jos, he'll accept and he hopes the Samoans and Paul E. Dangerously will stay out of this.
-In the opening NWA Showcase match, Assassin #2 beat Super Destroyer #2 in 9:21
-Next to the broadcast booth is the new NWA Canadian International Heavyweight Champion, Don Kernodle from Mid-Atlantic. Kernodle is asked about his despicable actions going back to the Johnny Rougeau Memorial Cup in Montreal. Kernodle says there was nothing despicable; he did all he had to do to get noticed. Kernodle says that ever since Lutte Internationale returned, the Rougeaus were handed everything, even the NWA World Tag Team Championship. Kernodle claims that it's unknown from the general public but when the Rougeaus accepted to face Jimmy Garvin & Eric Embry for the North American Tag Team Championship, Kernodle called Jacques to ask him to step down and let American Made have the title shot and Jacques laughed at him and hung up on him. So, Kernodle got the sweetest revenge possible by throwing him off the scaffold and used Jacques' pride to get something he wanted and that's the Canadian International Heavyweight Championship. Kernodle is then asked about him turning his back on Corporal Kirschner shortly after he won the title. Kernodle says that Kirschner was holding him back and he just cut off dead weight. It's all about him now and he's gonna make the Kernodle name proud and nobody is taking that title away from him. Kernodle is then interrupted by "Adorable" Adrian Adonis, who's barging in on the set, asking again for a title shot. Paul E Dangerously quickly follows at his heels, saying that Adonis cannot always ask title shots like that. Adonis still insists that he wants a title shot and he wants to face Don Kernodle right now. Paul E apologizes for Adonis and tries to drag him off but Adonis yanks his arm from Paul E and he asks one more time. Don Kernodle doesn't hesitate and says he's gonna make him regret taking that title shot....RIGHT NOW.
-NWA Canadian International Heavyweight Champion Don Kernodle beat "Adorable" Adrian Adonis (w/Paul E. Dangerously) in 9:11 to retain after Paul E. distracted the official long enough while Adonis was applying Good Night Irene on Kernodle. Paul E wanted to complain about Kernodle using the American flag moments earlier but that distraction allowed Kernodle to low blow Adonis and use his title belt to knock out Adonis and get the win. Paul E. seemed "disappointed" but clearly, things aren't going smoothly for Paul E and Adrian right now...
-Randy Rose of the Southern Ramblers defeated B. Brian Blair of the Killer Bees in 18:21 in a solid match
-Before the main event, the broadcast team confirm that the Samoan SWAT Team will be defending the NWA Canadian International Tag Team Championship against Jos LeDuc and his mystery partner next week live and also, Matt Borne will be defending the NWA Canadian International TV Championship against one half of the Fabulous Ones, Steve Keirn!
-In the main event, NWA World Heavyweight Champion Rick Martel beat Jos LeDuc in 14:05 to retain after the slingshot splash. Postmatch, the Samoan SWAT Team ran in again to attack both LeDuc and Martel but this time, LeDuc and Martel turned the table on the Samoans and chased them off....Samu & Fatu, that is, as Paul E must hold back Kokina Maximus to step inside the ring. Before the show goes off the air, LeDuc is asked if Martel is his mystery partner but LeDuc simply answers "No." The show ends as the broadcast team asked themselves who will be LeDuc's mystery partner next week in the main event!
