WOW! Big win for Snuka! Should be very interesting to see where this goes. That 6 Man tag was loaded with talent. Things between Kernodle and Jacques are escalating. I would love to carry this feud over to MACW. I agree, great way to end the show with Martel

Very interested to see where Snuka goes.  He has not had many championships in this game but his stardom was huge in the 80's

 

In this case, I figured it was a good way to have the spotlight on him a bit in the NWA without taking too much the focus away from the top draws like Martel, Kerry, Nikita & Dibiase. And he's gonna have some fun people to work with to defend the title not only here in Lutte, but in Mid-Atlantic and everywhere else in the NWA.

I think it's a matter of time before Jacques Rougeau shows up at a TV taping to take care of Don Kernodle! ;)

I wonder how strange it felt for Martel to get stuck on a team with Kernodle, working against the Rougeaus. I'm sure he handled it like a true pro, though.

The teaming of Kernodle and Martel was great.  Snuka with an absolutely huge title win. I doubt Kokina takes that lying down.

NWA Lutte Internationale/International Wrestling TV LIVE!

May 17th, 1986

Avonlea, SK

Quick and Dirty Results

 

-The show started with Jos LeDuc in the ring with Édouard Carpentier to discuss tonight's main event for the NWA Canadian International Tag Team Championship. But before Jos could get anything out, Paul E Dangerously hit the ring with the Samoan SWAT Team. Paul E is incensed that Jos cost Kokina Maximus the NWA National Heavyweight Championship last night and handing it to Jimmy Snuka. Paul E says that if Kokina has to go back to Mid-Atlantic to bring it back here, so be it. But for now, Jos will pay the ultimate price and they're gonna make sure that he doesn't make it to the main event. The Samoans surround Jos LeDuc when....OH MY GOD.....TOMMY RICH IS HERE! AND HE'S GOT A CHAIR IN HAND! Paul E is completely stunned as he sees Tommy Rich standing side-by-side with Jos LeDuc. Jos simply ended the segment by telling Paul E : "Meet my tag team partner....and future tag team champion!"

 

-In the first match of the night, Rolling Thunder defeated the makeshift team of Adrian Adonis (w/Paul E. Dangerously) & Pirata Morgan in 15:22 when an argument started between Adonis and Morgan and Adonis walked out on Morgan. The broadcast team explains that MS-1 wasn't cleared to wrestle after his match last night in Ottawa so Paul E "volunteered" Adonis to be his tag team partner. This seems to be an omen of what's to come for the Dangerous Alliance tonight....

 

-Gilles "The Fish" Poisson beat Armand Rougeau in 10:42. Armand had his ribs taped following the assault by King Kong Bundy on MACW-TV last week and Poisson took advantage of this. After the match, King Tonga jumped on Armand and attacked his ribs even more.

 

-"Mr. Electricity" Steve Regal beat Richard "Le Magnifique" Charland (w/Frenchy Martin) in 13:34

 

-Lord Humongous (w/Floyd Creatchman) beat Jacques Rougeau in 15:10 after Jacques was distracted by the American anthem being played, anticipating the appearance of Don Kernodle. Instead, Humongous just squashed him in the corner and hit a powerslam. Clearly, Kernodle is still in Jacques' head...

 

-Chris Candido beat The Cobra in 11:07. The rise of Chris Candido continues!

 

NWA Canadian International TV Championship: "Maniac" Matt Borne beat Steve Keirn in 14:10 to retain

 

-Bobby Fulton beat Gino Brito in 16:42 in a great technical bout

 

NWA Canadian International Tag Team Championship: In the main event, The Samoan SWAT Team (w/Paul E Dangerously & The Great Samu) beat Jos LeDuc & Tommy Rich in 14:57 to retain after The Great Samu attacked Tommy Rich outside, allowing Fatu & Kokina to double-team Jos LeDuc in the ring. After the match, Paul E said he was sick and tired of dealing with Jos LeDuc and it's time for him to move on to some other things. NWA Enforcer Bruno Sammartino comes out and says that Paul E. doesn't get to decide things over here, he does. And it'll be over when he says it's over. Bruno grants Jos LeDuc a chance to settle his grudge with Kokina once and for all tomorrow night in Kitchener, ON. Bruno wants to deal with them separately and collectively. Collectively, Bruno announces that next Sunday night in Calgary, AB, the Samoan SWAT Team will be defending the Tag Team titles against Lutte Internationale's newest tag team. Paul E says it's unfair because Fatu will be in Japan and won't be there to defend the title so he invokes the Freebird rule to have Samu defend the titles with Kokina, which Bruno accepts. As for their separate dealings, Bruno Sammartino says that Fatu will be taken care of in Japan next week during his match in the tour ender, on the same night Rick Martel defends the NWA World Heavyweight Championship against Jumbo Tsuruta. As for Kokina Maximus, Bruno says that he would like to see Kokina do to his opponent next week what he's been doing to Jos LeDuc for the past few weeks. Paul E says no matter who it is, he will. Bruno introduces Kokina's opponent for next week:

ANDRE THE GIANT!!! Andre comes standing next to Bruno and Paul E is completely apopleptic while Kokina keeps staring Andre. The show ends with separate shots of Andre and Kokina's mammoth staredown!

And BOOM! goes the dynamite! If anyone can intimidate Kokina, it would be Andre.

I appreciate the nod toward the Martel vs Jumbo match.

Andre staring down Kokina is an awesome image.

Was Armand always the lesser of the three Rougeau Brothers, or do you think he could have been Jaques and Raymond's equal, had he not needed back surgery?

What a way to end the show with a blockbuster announcement of Andre the Giant as Kokina's opponent! Great continuity of Armand's injury at the hands of Bundy. Tommy Rich showing up was another fun surprise. That Kernodle is really messing with Jacques, even when he's not there. I have a feeling Jacques will be heading to Mid Atlantic soon for some payback.

Actually, it's hard to tell because Armand didn't have a career as lenghty as Jacques & Raymond because of his back injury and his career only lasted from 1982 to 1987. I remember that he was scheduled to join Jacques & Raymond in WWF when they jumped IRL in 1986 but his back problems prevented him from doing so (it happened like 1 month before he was supposed to make the jump). I think that Armand felt more the pressure of living up to the Rougeau family name and he had to retire because of that injury, it was really hard for him. A couple of years ago, a local sports station in Quebec had a documentary on the Rougeau family where Armand talks about it. If I knew that there were some English subtitles I could find for it, I'd send you the link because it's really interesting as it covers the entire Rougeau family.

Yeah, I have to imagine that would be fascinating to watch. 

 

I found this, at least:

Andre vs. Kokina should be incredible.  Great use for Andre.  Paul E. was having a tough night in Saskatchewan.  Armand was always a fascinating guy for me as well.  Do you make him the guy who takes the falls for the Rougeaus?  Do you build him up as a threat over time?  Hard to say.

Usually, if Armand is involved in the losing end of a tag match, he usually is the one taking the fall. Unless I need to set up something for either Jacques or Raymond.

Steel Cage: The Creatchman Family (w/Floyd Creatchman) fight The Hart Brothers (Owen & Keith) to a 60-minute time limit draw. The cage was to prevent Floyd to get involved in the match

Was hoping for a long run for Kokina but intriqued to see how Snuka's reign goes! Lethal Lottery is a fun concept, loved the main event!

Lutte is the melting pot of the NWA and you never know what is next.  Andre and Tommy Rich in Canada was cool.  I am also very interested in the Snika title reign as well.

Don't worry about Kokina, he's still gonna be front and center for the rest of 1986. Some really fun stuff coming up. And besides, he's still tag team champion and I want the Samoans to be my top tag team so he's gonna be a big part of that.

That's the beauty of the NWA: We can all bring in various talents from our territories and it just enhances our products. ;)

Good Grief that cage match was insane! A 60 minute cage draw definitely gives the fans their money's worth. Looks like Kokina is still rattled from his title loss as he falls to Leduc.
