Interesting things going on in Texas.  The team of Hayes and Street is perfect!  Also like that Bad News is a man that it out on his own as he goes up against Percy's group and then wants nothing to do with Wahoo!

 

Could we see a Battle of the Claws down the road as the Spoiler meets a VonErich?

 

Again good use of Black Bart!!!

BILOXI, MISSISSIPPI

 

 

UWF UNIFIED WORLD CHAMPION:  JERRY “THE KING” LAWLER

UWF WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS:  THE ROAD WARRIOIRS

UWF NORTH  AMERICAN CHAMPION:  STEVE “DR. DEATH” WILLIAMS

UWF UNITED STATES CHAMPION:  HACKSAW BUTCH REED

UWF UNITED STATES TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS:  THE WILD-EYED SOUTHERN BOYS

 

 

 

Hello again everybody.  Welcome to the UWF and Crossfire Wrestling!  I am Lance Russell along with my partner, Dave Brown.  We are coming to you today from the Mississippi Coast Coliseum in Biloxi, Mississippi.    What a week of wrestling we had and it was all capped off in Memphis as The Wild-EyedSouthern Boys (Steve Armstrong & Tracy Smothers) defeated the Midnight Express for the United States Tag Team Titles

Dave Brown:  That’s’ right Lance.  It all backfired on Jim Cornette this week.  He was about to throw his tennis racket into Beautiful Bobby Eaton but Bob Armstrong, who was managing the Southern Boys, saw this and caught Cornette with a big right hand.  This allowed the racket to go astray and it was caught by Smothers who clocked Eaton as the ref was watching the action on the outside.  One spinning heel kick later and we got new champs.

 

This brings out an irate Cornette who is ready to use mothers lawyers to sue everyone.  He wants the incompetent ref fired for allowing the Southern Boys to use a weapon.  He wants Bob Armstrong suspended for his unprovoked attack and wants Smothers fired for stealing his tennis racket!  While Russell and Brown don’t buy a word of this, Cornette does begin to hype up this week’s show in Nashville as he says his team is evoking its right to a rematch at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds.

DIRTY WHITE BOY WITH RON FULLER DEFEATS DIXIE DYNAMITE WITH SOME HELP FROM FULLER WITH A TRIP FOLLOWED UP BY A BUCKSNORT BLASTER

 

COMMERCIAL

 

Jerry Lawler has joined Lance Russell where he is informed that Nick Bockwinkle has sent in a video response to “the King” about his so-called win over him on December 27, 1982.

 

Nick Bockwinke:  How predictable!  A king lying to his people and they just buy it!  You claimed that you pinned me in late 1982 but you seem to be telling only ½ the story.  You forgot to tell them that you paid off that local yokel ref, Jerry Calhoun.  Probably one of your distant cousins as all you people from Memphis are inbreed.   When you covered me that night, my foot was on the rope by the count of 2 as I was not hurt at all and figured that was the best way to conserve energy.  Instead, the bribed official just keeps counting and gives you the AWA World title. 

 

How do we know that I am stating the facts?  Well as soon as Verne Gagne saw that tape of the match, he stripped you of that AWA title because he knew you never pinned me and I am letting you know that you never will.  Just as you tried to come and steal the AWA even though you were not a part of the AWA, I am coming to Memphis and I am going to take the UWF title, for whatever it is worth to the AWA. 

 

Lance Russell:  Well King, what do you have to say about that.

 

Jerry Lawler:  One thing Bockwinkle has always been good at it talking.  He puts up a good front but he knows that he can’t beat me.  He always had Verne Gagne in his back pocket and whenever he got in trouble, he had Verne bail him out.  Yes, Verne stripped me of the AWA title but that was only because he knew that no one in his organization could beat me.  Let Bockwinkle come down here.  How about this Bockwinkle.  I will give you your UWF title shot at Halloween Howl and then we will see which organization is better!

MATCH

JIMMY GOLDEN & ROBERT FULLER BEAT THE MIDNIGHT COWBOYS WHEN GOLDEN CAUGHT COWBOY #1 WITH A PILEDRIVER

 

At the interview desk, Fuller and Golden really laid into Ron Fuller and his new group called the Fuller Fabulous Ones.  Golden wants Dirty White Boy as he is giving Bucksnort, TN a bad name which is Golden’s home town.  Robert warns Tommy Rich to stay out of his way if he knows what is good for him!

 

Lance Russell:  Well this might be an interesting Thanksgiving in the Fuller compound!

MATCH

TERRY TAYLOR DEFEATS TOMMY GILBERT BY SUBMISSION WITH A CHICKENWING

 

At the interview desk, Lance lets us know that Taylor almost beat Hacksaw Reed this week in Nashville for the United States Title.

 

Terry Taylor is upset that that Ernie Ladd had to stick his big nose in where it didn’t belong and that is what cost him the title.

 

The speakers start to blare;  We Are….. The Nation….. Of Domination and Ladd and Reed are out at the interview desk and they are having a good time at Taylor’s expense.

 

Ernie Ladd:  Boy, are you telling me the wresting ring is not my business.  I have put more people down and have whopped more butt then you and any 10 of your friends combined have done.  I own that ring and any time I want to kick you in the teeth, I will.

 

Terry Taylor:  Is that so?  You want to put your money, or should I say the United States Title, where your mouth is.  This week, at the Mid-South Coliseum, me and you Ladd.  If I win, I get another title shot with you banned from ringside and if I lose, I will give you $10,000 of my own money.

 

All of a sudden Ladd starts to say that he is retired and if it was a year earlier…..

 

Jerry Jarrett comes out and reminds Ladd that retired wrestlers don’t kick Terry Taylor in the mouth like he did in Nashville last week at ringside and because of this, I will grant Terry’s request!  Taylor is clapping his hands while the Nation is furious and says that this is only because they don’t like the Nation of Domination.

 

 

MATCH:

THE BRUISE BROTHERS (PORKCHOP CASH & MAD DOG BOYD) BEAT CLIVE BARNS & CLETUS MYERS WITH A BOYD POWERSLAM ON BARNS

 

With their Soul Man entrance, Blues Brothers outfits and charisma, the Bruise Brothers are quickly becoming one of the more popular teams in the UWF.

MATCH:

ROY LEE WELCH & MIKE GRAHAM DEFEAT THE KIWI SHEEPHERDERS BY DQ

 

This was a wild one with Graham doing a bit if running the ropes to get the early advantage but this one turned into a brawl just a few minutes into the match.  While the action was all over the place, Ron Fuller sent in Rich, Landell and Idol to gang up on Welch.

 

While Welch was getting in pretty good, Ron Fuller was at the interview desk explaining that Welch needs to understand the Fuller hierarchy and when Welch said he would help Robert Fuller and Jimmy Golden against Ron, the line in the sand was drawn and now Welch will have to pay!

 

The cavalry of Golden, Robert Fuller and Bob Armstrong rushed into make the save.  Before the show ends, we find out that there will be a Fuller Street Fight this week in Memphis where it will be Robert Fuller, Jimmy Golden and Roy Lee Welch against Rich, Idol and Dirty White Boy!

MATCH:

MAIN EVENT

SUPERSTAR BILL DUNDEE BEATS BUDDY LANDELL WITH RON FULLER  BY DQ AS FULLER HIT DUNDEE WITH A CHAIR!

 

Fuller was in rare form tonight and it just carried over to this match.  The chair shot on Dundee got the ire of Jerry Lawler and the show ends with Dundee and Lawler brawling with Fuller and Landell.  The rest of Fuller’s goon squad hits the ring and the Golden, Welch and Robert Fuller hit the ring.  As the show ends, there is pure chaos all over the arena.


In Topic: WWF on Tour October 1985

13 October 2017 - 05:37 PM

You really have the WWF down pat with one big improvement which is that your tv shows are very watchable.  The addition of a nice main event match in your shows truly outdoes what ever the WWF did in 1985.  To me, their shows where 60 to 120 commercials for their shows of the week with nothing worth watching.  Main events like Fantastics vs the Dynamic Duo would never have happened on a WWF show which is why I feel in love with Southern Wrestling even though I grew up in NY.  If they had you around with those main event ideas, I would not have been searching the dial for other shows.

 

I did see that Gino had a singles match here and think that would be the way to go as you build up to a Dibiase feud.  Hogan vs OMG would be huge anywhere in the country but in the WWF, OMG seems like just enough of a gimmick to make the crowd nervous for a few minutes but the outcome would never be in doubt.  Gino on the other hand was such a talent, that it would have people thinking he might truly win the title.  Gino is kind of like a Dibiase where the sky is the limit.


In Topic: AWA results for October 1985

13 October 2017 - 08:55 AM

Hard to focus on all the great bouts going on in the AWA as I can't get Sunshine and silver white kimono out of my mind!  Great shows as always with such attention to detail as where the matches are occurring with the Playboy-Portland match.
