MACW @ The Civic Center Greenwood, NC
Special Live show 3-2-86
Schiavone: Hello again everybody and welcome to a live edition of Mid Atlantic Championship wrestling. My partner David Crockett is in Louisiana as he attended the Crockett Cup tournament yesterday. First off, I want to congratulate the Midnight Express on winning the Crockett Cup, 1 million dollars and the NWA National tag team titles. David told me it was an outstanding night of action and said Bill Watts did an impeccable job with the event.
There's a big stir in the crowd as JJ Dillon leads out the four horsemen. They're all dressed up as Flair has the US title on his shoulder and the Andersons are wearing their NWA tag title belts.
JJ: The first thing you should of mentioned Schiavone was the historic night the horsemen had at Battle of the Belts. We don't take a back seat to anyone, got it! Ric Flair soundly defeated Magnum TA to win the US title. The Andersons beat up the Road Warriors to successfully defend their titles then finished the job yesterday at the Crockett Cup and Tully here finally gave Michael Hayes his comeuppance. The 4 Horsemen are riding high, now sit back and keep your mouth shut Schiavone because Ric Flair has a huge announcement.
Schiavone smiles, shrugs and nods.
Flair: Whoooo! The question everybody has is what's causing all this? I'll tell you, it's the 4 Horsemen brother. I mean just look at us, are we styl'n or what? Now that sore loser Magnum TA shot off his mouth and issued a challenge. 10 man tag match on March 11th at the Omni. Oh Magnum you should of just licked your wounds and headed to a safe haven. Right now is the moment everybody has been waiting for. Who will be the Horsemen's partner? Tully, Ole, Arn, I told you this man can ride with the Horsemen, let me tell you, not only can he party like a horsemen but this guy gets the job done in the ring horsemen style. You boys remember when I was in Puerto Rico? Ha Ha, let me introduce you to our partner, the one and only Chicky Starr!
Schiavone: Oh my, I cant believe it!
Chicky comes out in a suit and sunglasses and all smiles. Ric shakes his hand and hugs him then introduces him to JJ, Tully and the Andersons. They all shake hands, smile and pat Chicky on the back.
Ric: Wait a minute! Boys, do you know Chicky here has his own segment on TV? It's called the Sports Shop. Oh man lets make this historic. Chicky would you host a impromptu Sports Shop? Here and now?
Chicky: For an important moment like this and for important people like the 4 Horsemen, it would be my pleasure.
Flair: Whoo! Schiavone, take a hike!
Flair gives Chicky, Schiavone's mic.
Chicky: Gracias Ric, it is my pleasure to be standing here with an elite group such as the 4 Horsemen. It's great to meet all of you and I'm sure we will get to know each other a lot better when Ric takes us out on the town tonight. I want to say if any of you are ever in Puerto Rico, I will drop any guest I have and you can come on my show. Then later we will party like I know you all can.
They all laugh and nod.
Chicky: It will be my privilege to team with you and to beat up a dirty low life like that Magnum TA. You guys and me go so well together. The Andersons are fighting tag team champions just like my cousin Ron and I. Tully is great in ring worker just like me. Just like me, you guys like the fine clothes, the jewelry and all the money. And just like me, you guys like to have titles and take care of business in the ring. Ric, you made this all possible and I cant wait to team up with the 4 Horsemen. I don't care who that Magnum gets as his partners. They cannot stop all of this greatness. What do you guys think?
Tully: (smiling) I like you. Ric, you've outdone yourself. You couldn't of picked a better partner. I like the way you talk and the way you strut and the way you dress. You've got horsemen written all over you.
Ole: You're something else alright, if you can back up that talk then you're ok in my book.
Arn: You think like a horsemen and I can tell you're elite and confident. That's what being a horsemen is all about. Come March 11th it's gut check time and Magnum is severely lacking in that department. Chicky, you on the other hand seem to be full of guts. Welcome.
Chicky: Gracias amigos, I wont let you down, count on that. Ric, take us out.
Ric: Whoo! Magnum, you see this group? No matter who you get, it wont be nearly enough. Boys, Chicky, time to hit the bars and they're staying open all night for us. Whoooooo!
Schiavone: That was something else. A bombshell announcement as Chicky Starr will team with the Horsemen. Now, listen to this, Magnum TA will announce his partners at the end of the program. Stay tuned for that. Lets go to the ring.
Tony St. Clair vs. Vic DeMarco
Tony looks sharp in his television debut as he back drops Vic then follows with a heel first drop kick. Tony gets up on the top rope. Vic staggers to his feet and Tony hits a cross body block for the pin! Tony acknowledges the cheers then heads to the podium.
Schiavone: Very impressive television debut for Tony St. Clair. Tony, let me officially welcome you to Mid Atlantic wrestling. You got the pin at Battle of the Belts but it seems that Billy Robinson still has some issues with you.
Tony: First of all, I'm so happy to have finally arrived to this great country. It's been a dream of mine for a long time and I'm looking forward to wrestling the great competition here in Mid Atlantic. Now I still don't know what Billy's issues are with me as I've always respected him. Now its come to a point where enough is enough and its time we settle this thing in the ring. I've requested a rematch and it was granted. We're not done yet Billy and you'll be seeing me again on March 11th at the Omni.
Schiavone: Ok there you have it, the rematch is set. Fans, back to the ring.
Spike Huber vs. Carl Hillman
Huber takes off his construction helmet and Charlotte O's tank top then gets down to business. Huber takes Carl over with a series of arm drags and dropkicks. Huber swings Carl to the ropes and hits the powerslam for the pin!
Schiavone: Fans, with me right now is the Assassin along with his tag team, the Assassins.
Assassin: Tony Schiavone, the havoc has begun and people will soon see what this devastating team is all about. The future of wrestling is standing right here and they're going to the ring right now to show you just what I'm talking about.
Assassins w/The Assassin vs. Aaron Arbuckle and Lloyd London
The Assassins just manhandle their opponents with body slams, punches, chokes and stomps. Assassin 1 picks up Arbuckle in a bear hug then slams him back, head first on the turnbuckle. Assassin 1 tags in 2. Assassin 2 jumps off the top rope with a knee drop and gets the pin!
Schiavone: Impressive win for the Assassins. Speaking of impressive, my guest right now is Mid Atlantic Champ, Harley Race. Harley you successfully defended that title against Wahoo McDaniel at the Battle of the Belts but then you got involved in the NWA world title bout. Now, its been signed, you will face Rick Martel on March 11th at the Omni for the world title. It looks like you got what you wanted.
Harley: I'll get what I want on March 11th, Schiavone. Rick Martel has been ducking me for months but not any more. All I did at Battle of the Belts was send him a message. I know you got that message Martel. Harley Race was standing right there, looking down at you, letting you know I'm coming for you. You thought Terry Gordy was tough, just wait until March 11th at the Omni. You will see what tough is all about.
Schiavone: Ok strong words from Harley Race, fans when we come back Rocky Johnson takes on Bob Roop. These two have been going at it so it should be quite the fight.
Rocky Johnson vs. Bob Roop
Roop charges Johnson before the bell rings but Johnson blocks his punches, shuffles his feet and hits Roop with a series of punches. Johnson body slams Roop, jumps up and hits a standing leg drop. Roop kicks out of the pin attempt. Roop takes control with an eye gouge and rake. Roop slams Johnson down then chokes him with his boot. The Ref tries to get Roop to break but Roop pushes him down. The bell rings and Roop is disqualified. Roop continues choking Johnson. Roop drops a knee then goes out and grabs a chair. Roop slides the chair into the ring, climbs in then picks up the chair but Johnson gets up and dropkicks the chair into Roop's face. Roop falls back against the ropes and Johnson follows with another drop kick, knocking Roop out of the ring! The crowd is going wild as Johnson holds up his fists.
Schiavone: Oh my that was a wild one and looks like their feud is far from over. Fans joining me right now is Rock Riddle and his Agency.
Riddle leads out Tom Prichard and the Fabulous Blondes.
Riddle: Tony, I'm out here to TCB baby. Take care of business. Now you saw that B level team, Nightmares didn't even make it out of the first round of the Crockett Cup. If my Blondes were in there, they would be a million dollars richer right now! We want the Nightmares and we want a title shot! Now the Doctor of Desire has something to say.
Tom: Thanks Rock, Terry Taylor, boy, you got a fluke win over me at Battle of the Belts. I had the match won until that dumb timekeeper messed everything up. I deserve another shot and everybody knows it. So here's the deal. You and me, March 11th at the Omni and if I don't win the TV title then I'll leave Mid Atlantic for good. I'm putting it all out there and all you have to do is put up that TV title. Are you man enough Taylor?
Riddle: The Agency wants answers Schiavone. You hear me? The Blondes want the Nightmares and Tom here wants Taylor. The Agency gets what we want.
'Wildcat' Wendell Cooley vs. Tim Straw
Cooley swings Straw to the ropes and nails him with a back elbow then follows with an elbow drop. Paul Jones comes out and is scouting the match. Cooley picks up Straw, hoists him over his shoulder then hits the Oklahoma Stampede for the pin. Jones looks impressed as Cooley stares down at him while the ref is raising his arm.
Johnny Rich w/Paul Jones vs. Steve Ramsey
Rich and Jones smile at Wendell Cooley and let him by as they head to the ring. Rich hits Ramsey with a running knee, Rich hops up on the 2nd turnbuckle, jumps off and lands a fist drop for the pin. The fans boo as they head to the podium.
Schiavone: Ok, solid win for your man Johnny Rich. Now, Mr. Jones it looks like Brett Sawyer and Hot Property have an alliance. I think maybe your man Johnny Rich and the Devil's Duo should be a little worried.
Rich: Hold on there Schiavone. Worried? Why? I've already beaten up that Sawyer and do you really think those two pretty boys are a match for the Devil's Duo?
Jones: That's right Johnny. The Devil's Duo are the toughest tag team in Mid Atlantic and they cant wait to mess up the faces of those two pretty boys. As for Sawyer, I guess he just loves getting whipped again and again by Johnny. He must love punishment.
Schiavone: Well I guess so because I've been informed that on March 11th, your man here will face Brett Sawyer in an anything goes Alley Fight.
Jones and Rich are livid.
Jones: Johnny Rich should be getting a title shot! He's already beaten Sawyer from one arena to the other. Ok Johnny, I guess on March 11th you will just have to finish the job once and for all.
Rich: I can guarantee you that Paul!
Schiavone: Fans, you wont want to miss that card at the Omni. In addition to everything you heard tonight, Mr. Wonderful Paul Orndorff takes on Bruiser Brody in a block buster match up. Also on the card Mil Mascaras takes on the Cobra. March 11th at the Omni, Be there! When we come back Pedro Morales clashes with David Sammartino.
Pedro Morales vs. 'The Great One' David Sammartino
David spent most of the early moments running from Pedro. When Pedro finally caught him, he unleashed a flurry of punches. Pedro swings David to the ropes and punches him in the stomach which flips David over. Pedro continues to dominate as he back drops David then body slams him. David tries to run out of the ring but Pedro pushes him into the ropes and rolls him up but David carries the momentum and rolls Pedro over, grabs a handful of tights and gets the pin! The fans boo as David exits the ring and jumps up and down in excitement.
Schiavone: Before he goes to the ring, my guest with me is the TV champion, Terry Taylor. Well, Terry you heard the challenge by Tom Prichard. Your TV title or he leaves Mid Atlantic.
Taylor: Tony, I told you I was going to be a fighting champion and answer all challenges. Tom, I beat you at battle of the belts and I'll beat you on March 11th at the Omni. Yes, I accept!
TV Champ Terry Taylor vs. Tim Straw
Taylor hits the jaw breaker on Straw then hoists him up and falls back with a vertical suplex. Taylor hits a knee drop from the 2nd turnbuckle and gets the pin! Taylor holds up his TV title to the cheering crowd. The Fabulous Blondes nail Taylor from behind then double body slam him. Tom Prichard climbs up on the top rope and hits Taylor with a diving splash! Riddle kicks Taylor then holds up Prichard's arm to the booing crowd.
Schiavone: Ok fans, Terry Taylor was helped out by officials. Another cowardly act by Rock Riddle and his Agency. I'm sure Taylor would love to send Prichard packing. Fans, I want to show you a video of a man who will be making his Mid Atlantic television debut in the near future. Lets take a look at Austin Idol.
A video is shown of Austin Idol in ring clips to the song of 'Do you want to touch me' by Joan Jett.
Schiavone: Mid Atlantic is excited to have Austin Idol arriving soon. Fans when we come back we will hear from Magnum TA and I'm sure he has some big announcements.
Schiavone: At this time please welcome out Magnum TA.
The fans roar as Magnum comes out limping a bit. He waves to the fans.
Schiavone: Magnum, great to have you and looks like your doing a lot better. I understand you just arrived and have some very big news concerning the big 10 man tag team match at the Omni.
Magnum: Tony, I'm feeling a lot better. I told all these people I wouldn't come out and cry about losing my US title and I wont. I would like to say that I gave 100% every time I stepped into the ring to defend that prestigious title. As for right now, I owe the 4 horsemen some serious payback for that parking lot attack and Tony, it looks like I'm going to get it. JJ Dillon, the worm that he is managed to get out of the match. Ric Flair thinks he put me in checkmate by going to Puerto Rico and picking up Chicky Starr. Well Flair, I have an ace up my sleeve. I just got off the phone with somebody who would love to be on my team. Matter of fact he would love to go at it with Chicky Starr because they go way back. The man teaming with me is connected right now on satellite, he is the Universal champion, Carlos Colon!
Colon: (via satellite with a big smile) When Magnum called me and told me Chicky Starr came to town and is teaming with the horsemen, I gave him a yes before he had to ask. Oh Chicky, it will be a lot of fun to fight you over in the States. Chicky, Flair, we have unfinished business.
Magnum: (smiling) You like that Chicky? If anyone's got your number it's Carlos Colon. You know something Tony, it turns out the horsemen have a lot of enemies. Which brings me to my next partners. Ole and Arn, you know them well. We got them on satellite, the UWF tag team champs, the Road Warriors!
Animal: Andersons! You cost us the Crockett Cup! Magnum has given us this golden opportunity for sweet revenge and we cant wait to beat up the so called most dominate group in wrestling! When your talking domination, you're talking about the Road Warriors! Tell them Hawk!
Hawk: Well! Andersons you pulled a good one on us last night but this fight has just begun! We're gonna break every bone in your bodies and just for kicks we're gonna break that pencil neck of Blanchard's and then we're gonna take Flair's head off with a clothesline! Domination is coming!
Schiavone: I cant believe this! Carlos Colon and the Road Warriors! Magnum who can possibly be your last partner.
Magnum: Glad you asked Tony. I needed somebody crazy and I mean really crazy. I called him first and he sent in these comments. Tony, my final partner is Terry Funk!
Terry: (pre recorded) Of course I'm gonna team with Magnum. He's given me the chance to get my hands on those egg sucking dogs, the Andersons. I also get to beat up that bleach blond, banana nose Ric Flair. You all might of left Texas alive but at the Omni, your all going to be put down!
Schiavone: Magnum, you have indeed put together an incredible team. March 11th will be a historic night indeed.
Magnum: I've assembled the best team possible. We're coming to fight and rest assured not one member of our opponents will be standing when its all said and done!
Schiavone: Fans we've got to go. What a match that's going to be. See you next week.
