Good evening wrestling fans, Cowboy ghost here once again, and welcome to the Leflore County Civic Center. We've got another huge night of Mid-South Wrestling for you, including a match for the Mid-South Tag Team Title, inside the steel cage! Also on the card, Bruiser Brody has come to town to claim the bounty on Cowboy Bill Watts, Orndorf vs Orton in a non-title match, Latham & Fields, Buck Robley, and more!
Our first match is already in the ring, as young Rick Youngblood will square off with "Wild Bill" Irwin of the Long Riders. This match is one fall, with a 15 minute time limit. Your referee, James Beard, calls for the bell, and we're underway. Here comes Irwin! He's going right after this youngster, hammering away with what might be forearm shots. James Beard is telling Irwin to keep the fist open, but I don't think Irwin cares. Firing his man across the ring, there's the big boot to the face, and Rick Youngblood is down. Bill Irwin is toying with Youngblood now. He could pin him whenever he wants, but Irwin likes to inflict punishment. Bodyslam! Guillotine leg drop, and Irwin covers Youngblood. 1----2----He pulled him up! Irwin is sadistic! He had Youngblood beat, but he wants to hurt this kid. Off the ropes, lariat! He nearly took his head off with that one. Somebody oughta stop this massacre. Oh no. Irwin has lifted Youngblood to the top turnbuckle. He's following him up, hooking the arm. SUPERPLEX! It's over. There's no way Youngblood is going to kick out of that devastating move. There's the cover. 1---2------3. Bill Irwin wins the match by pinfall in 4:17.
Next up, we've got a rematch, as Count Sciluna has challenged Col. Buck Robley. For those of you that are interested, we've still got plenty of the 8x10 color photos personally autographed by Sciluna, and we'll sell 'em, cheap. Real cheap. Jerry Usher calls for the bell, and we're underway. One fall, 20 minute time limit. Sciluna charges in, Robley sidesteps, and kicks Sciluna right in the butt! The Count is not happy, and he's going after Robley. OH. Straight right hand by the Colonel, and Sciluna is down. Robley drops the knee once, twice, and now he's in for the choke. Robley must be feeling nasty tonight. Jerry Usher breaks the hold, and the two men circle. The fans are chanting something, I can't quite make it out, but I think they are implying Count Sciluna drinks through a straw? Robley fires Sciluna into the ropes, and there's the sleeper. Wait a minute! Bob Orton, Jr. is on the ring apron. He's waving a yellow T-shirt and Robley. Buck releases the sleeper, and whips Sciluna into the ropes, knocking Orton to the floor. Robley rolls him up, hooks the leg, 1------2------3! Buck Robley is your winner, and he's going after Orton. The Mississippi Heavyweight Champion decides discretion is the better part of valor, and beats a hasty retreat. Time of the fall was 8:06.
The third match is a challenge match, with the first time duo of Sugarbear Harris & Igor Volkoff in the ring. Last week in Biloxi, Harris roughed up young Terry Latham, and this week the Young Rockers, Ricky Fields & Terry Latham are looking for revenge. Fields & Latham are undefeated in Mid-South, with a win by DQ over The Long Riders. Sooner or later, they'll be in line for a shot at the Tag Titles. And there's the music: "I Love Rock-n-Roll" by Joan Jett & the Blackhearts. The young ladies line up to touch the young lions on the way to the ring. Finally, James Beard calls for the bell. 1 fall, with a 30 minute time limit. Volkoff is going to start against Fields, and right away the big Russian shows his power. Shoulder block sends Fields to the mat, and Volkoff is on his man, working the leg. Harris applauds his partner, but the fans don't seem to appreciate Volkoff's efforts. Fields drags himself to the ropes to break the hold. Volkoff charges in, but Fields ducks, go behind, foward leg trip on Volkoff. Fields is really twisting that ankle, but Volkoff catches him with a wild kick. Volkoff tags out to Harris, and Fields knows no fear! He's taking it to the big man, irish whip into the ropes, Dropkick! Harris back to his feet, uh-uhn, big clotheline on Fields. Harris is taking over now, into the ropes...Gorilla Press Slam! Wow. Ricky Fields must have been 8-9, maybe 10 feet in the air on that one! Harris follows up with a splash, and I'm afraid this is going to be it for Ricky Fields. A man can only take so much. Arrogant cover by Harris. 1----2-----Foot on the ropes! Rocky Fields managed to feet a foot on the ropes! James Beard breaks the hold, but Fields is in trouble. Harris flings him into the corner, he's going for the shoulder smash...Fields got a foot up! Harris took a boot to the face, and goes down. Fields is dragging himself along the bottom rope, trying to reach Latham. Harris stagger to his feet, and Fields makes the tag! Latham is going up top, Harris doesn't see him.....MISSILE DROPKICK! Harris is down, LAtham with the cover, Fields somehow intercepts Volkoff....1-----2-----3! Terry Latham gets revenge by pinning Sugarbear Harris in 17:24.
We'll be right back after these commercial messages....
And we're back to the action here in Greenwood. Coming to the ring to the sound of "Wild Thing" is former North American Heavyweight Champion Paul Orndorf. Paul hasn't been quite himself since his stunning loss to the Spoiler, but hopefully he'll get back on track with a win here tonight. His opponent, entering to "Dead or Alive", is the Mississippi Heavyweight Champion, Bob Orton, Jr. The Title is NOT on the line tonight, but a win here will go a long way to bringing Orndorf back to the top of the rankings. One fall, with a 30 minute time limit. Jerry Usher is your referee, and there's the bell. Orndorf wants the test of strength, but Orton says he's not having any of that. Orndorf mocks Orton, flapping his arms like chicken wings, and Orton takes advantage. Bob Orton is an opportunist, and he's taking it to Orndorf. Forearms, chops, and that was a closed fist! Orndorf firing back now, he's come to prove something to himself tonight! Orndorf with the gorilla press slam! Orton bails out of the ring, calling a time out. Orndorf follows him out, and the two men are brawling at ringside. Jerry Usher with the count, but Orton is back in the ring, with Orndorf hot on his heels. Wow! Savate Kick from nowhere by Orton, and he's taking over on Orndorf once again. Elbow right to eye socket, and Orndorf is busted open. Orton backs away, measures his man, going for the fist to the back of the head, but Orndorf rolls away. Orndorf back to his feet, and he's got the abdominal stretch on Orton. This could be a submission move, but I don't think Orndorf locked it in quite right. Reverse elbow to the head from Orton breaks the hold, and Orton is setting his man up for that pile driver. He's got him in position, but wait just a second...Buck Robley is on the ring apron. Orton is shouting something to Robley, but Orndorf is drinving his feet, just like did in football, and he's talked Orton, with a foward roll...Orton's shoulders are down! Robley hops off the apron, Jerry Usher with the count....1-----2-------3! Paul Orndorf just pinned the MS Heavyweight Champion! The crowd loves it! Time of the match was 19:58.
WCFL this Week FEATURE MATCH
All right Mid-South fans, hold on to your hats for this one. By now,
everybody knows about the $10,000.00 bounty somebody placed on Cowboy
Bill Watts. He's faced Volkoff, Harris, Terry Funk, Abdullah the Butcher,
and The Assassins, and so far, nobody has been able to cash in, but
tonight the Big Cowboy may be about to meet his match. His opponent
is 6 feet 9 inches, 320 pounds of brutality. A man that has been banned
for life from more wrestling promotions than you or I have ever heard
of, the one and only.... BRUISER BRODY .
All right. You wanted Watts in the hospital, and I delivered. Now come down here and gimme my money!
Brody seems to be waiting for somebody...the man that posted the bounty? Who could it be? Wait a minute...the lights just went out...what's that sound? Church Bells? A guitar? That's "Hells Bells" by ?AC/DC....and that means..... THE SPOILER . There he is! The house lights are back up, and The Spoiler is in the ring. He's shaking hands with Brody. Spoiler must have posted the bounty on Cowboy Bill Watts! Spoiler just opened a briefcase...that's cold, hard cash. Blood Money for a bounty hunter. Thirty pieces of silver. WAIT.....Buck Robley is in the ring. He's shaking hands with Brody. What's going on here? Is Robley in on this? Brody is leaving, Spoiler is holding up his hands in bewilderment. Robley has the microphone...
Spoiler, you no good sumbitch, you fell right into my little trap. Brody and I have crossed paths before, and it just so happens that he owed me a favor. You didn't bring Brody here. I did. Just to expose you. I knew you'd believe Brody took out Watts, and then you'd come slinking out here like the egg-sucking dog that you are. The thing is, Watts ain't hurt, Brody's got your money, and we got your ass
Cowboy Bill Watts, with his arm most definately not broken, spins Spoiler around, and nails him. Watts is going berserk, I think he's trying to kill Spoiler! Robley holds his legs, and Watts is going for the mask! Bill Watts is going to unmask the Spoiler right here in Greenwood! He's ripped it! The top of the mask is torn, you can see Spoiler's dark hair...but there's Orton! Why is Orton out here? He's pulling Spoiler out of the ring! Bob Orton just saved the Spoiler's mask! The locker rooms have emptied, and they're having to restrain Watts. He wants Spoiler, and rightly so. I'm sure he'll get his shot, after all he's been through because of this man.
Whew! All that excitement, and we've still got the main event to go. We'll take another short commercial break while the ring crew assembles the cage, and when we come back, the Mid South Tag Team Titles will be on the line!
All right, ol'Cowboy Ghost back with you fo rthe main event. Coming to the ring first, heralded by Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyries", are the challengers. The Teutonic Terrors, Baron Von Raske and Killer Karl Krupp, with the notorius Skandar Akbar at ringside. The crowd is letting the Germans hear it, as they really hate this team. Those boos are turning to cheers now, though. Queen's "Another One Bites the Dust" introduces men who need no introduction to Mis-South fans, the reigning Mid-South Tag Team Champions, "Captain Redneck" Dick Murdock & Junkyard Dog. Jerry Usher locks the cage door, and this one has broken down already. Murdock is swapping punches with Krupp, and Dog slams Von Raske. This match is one fall, to a finish. No time limit, No DQ, there must be a winner. All Usher has to do in this one is stay alive, count the fall, and unlock the cage door. Murdock slings Krupp into the steel, as Von Raske uses a low blow to take over on JYD. Murdock over to help his partner, but Krupp nails him from behind. Raske coming over for the double team, and Murdock hits the cage face-first. Raske is grinding Murdock's skin into that steel mesh, and Murdock's a bloody mess. JYD hammering Krupp, rocks him with a head butt, picks him up....BIG THUMP! JYD covers Krupp, 1---2---Raske breaks up the pin. Murdock on Raske now, closed fist...the crowd chants "Dot his eye, Dot his eye"....and Murdock gives 'em what they want, opening up Von Raske in the process. Akbar is trying to open the cage door, but it's locked! Wait...he's handing something to Krupp....JYD sees it....knee to the back, and Krupp drops whatever it was Akbar tried to give him. Von Raske has that German Claw on Murdock! JYD over to break the hold. Dog firing away on Raske, as Murdock supports himself on the ropes. Krupp comes over, he's tying Murdock in the ropes! Murdock is trapped! Krupp is putting a savage beating on Murdock, and his arms are tied up in the ropes! JYD has got Raske! Belly to Back Suplex! Both men's shoulders are down....1----------2----------Raske got a shoulder up----3!!! Raske got a shoulder up! He just pinned JYD....We've got NEW CHAMPIONS ....Jerry Usher unlocks the cage, Skandar Akbar grabs the belts....These fans are furious. The local police quickly escort the Germans out of the building, as JYD helps Murdock to the back.
What a night, wrestling fans. After everything that has happened
Good evening, wrestling fans! Cowboy
Ghost here with you again, with
from: Grey Ghost
------------New Orleans, LA ------9-10-81-------------
from: Grey Ghost
Terry Funk: Bill Watts....the big so-called "Cowboy" from Oklahoma. Somebody wants you out of the way pretty bad. Ten Thousand dollars is a lot of money. I'm just the kinda guy that's going to cash in the prize, Watts. You see, I'm from Texas. And down on the Double Cross Ranch, we know how to hurt a man. Maybe I'll break your neck. How about that trick knee of your, Watts? How loud will you scream when I lock in the spinning toehold, and twist...and twist...and twist until your whole knee is nothing put silly putty. I don't like Oklahoma, and I don't like you Watts. This Monday Night I'll show you why the Funk name is a household word all over the world. It's less than 24 hours Watts. Think about it.
Dick Murdock: Monday Night, Von Raske and Krupp are gonna pay for what happened in Thibodaux. It took Akbar and that pasty little geek Sciluna to tilt the scales. Four on two. Maybe you caught us napping, but that ain;t gonna happen again. Me and the Dog are walking out of the Municipal Auditorium the same way we walked in...as the Mid-South Tag Team Champions. And if that no good snake in the grass Akbar wants to stick his nose in it, I got a size 12 boot that's going where the sun don't shine.
Skandar Akbar: My Teutonic Terrors showed the world that the superior German intellect is all that is necessary to beat Murdock and that flea-bitten, mangy dog. The General's army is on the way to the top. Spoiler, you made a mistake in Thibodaux. See that it doesn't happen again.
Cowboy Bill Watts: Terry Funk, I thought you had to much pride to become a bounty hunter. I shouldn't be surprised, though. There ain't anything that comes outta Texas that I can't whip, just like the Sooners are going to beat the Longhorns next weekend. Did you know Barry Switzer called me up the other day? He said, "Bill, we got this big game coming up, can you tell me how to get to Texas?" I said sure thing. All you gotta do to find Texas from Oklahoma is walk South until you smell it, and then turn west until you step in it. Let's Hook'em Up!
The Spoiler: And so we meet again, Mr. Rhodes. It's been a long time. Have you missed me? I've missed you. Ever since you got that big gold belt, you don't seem to want to wrestle me anymore. Why is that, Mr. Rhodes? Could it be your instinct for self preservation kicking in? That gnawing, empy knot in the pit of your stomach as you watch the clock winding down the hours on your time as WCFL World Heavyweight Champion? I jnow holding on to that belt is the most important thing in the world to you. It really is your "American Dream". Enjoy it while you can, Mr. Rhodes. Remember, they call me The Spoiler.

Good evening, wrestling fans, and welcome to the soldout Thibodaux Civic Center. Tonight's card promises another great night of wrestling action, capped off with the big OVER THE TOP ROPE Battle Royal, with the winner to get a shot at Dusty Rhodes for the WCFL World Heavyweight Title next Monday Night at the Municipal Auditorium in New Orleans.
Our first match this evening has talented youngster Rick Youngblood squaring off against the popular superstar from South of the Border, Supersock Jose Lothario. Nice display of sportsmanship as the two men shake hands before the bell rings. We're underway, and it's a collar and elbow tie up, into a hip toss by Lothario. Youngblood back to his feet, single leg takedown on Lothario, floatover for the ride. Lothario is on his stomach, looking for a way out. He's back to his knees, and Youngblood's got the arm. He's barred the arm, but there's a reversal by the vetern Lothario. Into the ropes, and referee Scrappy McGowan calls for the break. Good clean break. Lothario with the Irish whip into the ropes, high back drop. Lothario goes for the pin, 1------------2----------kickout. Youngblood goes for the headlock, but Lothario ducks under for the go behind. Russian legsweep into a cover....1-------2------into the ropes. Youngbloods getting frustrated here, he can't seem to do anything with Lothario. Armdrag takedown, and Lothario is going for the spinning toehold....He's got it locked in, right in the middle of the ring. Youngblood is a game kid...he's trying to kick Lothario off, but he can't take the pain. Scrappy McGowan calls for the bell. Jose Lothario wins the match by submission in 9:12.
Tonight's second match is a special challenge issued by El Fantastico after the events that transpired in Jackson on August 31. Bob Orton used the tights to pin Lothario, and El Fantastico is looking to avenge his friend's defeat. The masked man is really taking it to Orton from the opening bell. A kick, followed by a series of chops, there's an irish whip....Drop Kick! and Orton bails out of the ring. It looks like he wants a time out, but there are no timeouts in wrestling. He's got a 10-count to return to the ring, and he slides under the bottom rope at 9. Orton needs to slow this young man down if he's going to win this match. Collar & elbow tie up, into the corner, referee calls for the break. Cheap shot on the break by Orton. He's a man to take every shortcut in the book. Body Slam, and El Fantastico is down, Ortons going for the knee drop, but El Fantastico rolls out of the way! Kip-up to his feet.....WOW...he just kicked Orton right in the face. This crowd is loving the action. They're really starting to get behind this masked man from Mexico. El Fantastico working the leg, but what's Orton doing? He's going to the tights, he's got something in his hand. The referee has his back to Orton....OH MAN...he just slammed El Fantastico in the head, that breaks the hold. Orton goes back to the tights, hiding that illegal object, and the fans are really getting on Orton right now. El Fantastico is struggling to his feet, but a big kick from Orton sends him down again. He's setting him up for the pile driver......this is going to hurt.....OUCH......Orton hits the pile driver on El Fantastico, but Jose Lothario has come to ringside...he's trying to tell the referee what happened. Orton shakes his head no...the fans are screaming yes...Lothario is on the ring apron, trying to keep Lothario out of the ring. Orton goes to the tights...those are Brass Knuckles! Lothario didn't see Orton go to the tights....OHHHHHHHH....Orton just blasted Lothario...he's covering El Fantastico.....1---------2--------------3! Bob Orton with the pinfall, but I'm sure this isn't the last he'll hear from Lothario & Fantastico.
The third match of the evening is a Tag Team Match. The popular combination of Ricky Fields & Terry Latham will take on Igor Volkoff & Count Sciluna. Fields & Latham had a big victory over Mike George & Bob Roop at the big Ground Zero event in Jackson, and they're hoping for another victory here. Volkoff is a big mean Russian who made an unsucessfull attempt to collect the $10,000.00 bounty on Cowboy Bill Watts. We don't know much about Sciluna, but we do still have plenty of his pictures available for sale. It's going to be Sciluna and Fields starting the match. Dropkick from Fields rocks Sciluna...he's back up....Irish Whip into the corner...SUNSET FLIP....PINNING COMBINATION....Terry Latham comes in to cut off Volkoff....1------2------3!.....Ricky Fields pins Count Sciluna in 37 seconds! Volkoff is outraged!...He throws Latham over the top rope, and nails Fields from behind. The big Russian is putting the boots to Ricky Fields....but Terry Latham clears the ring. Sciluna & Volkoff are arguing as they exit, but it's another big win for the young team of Fields & Latham.
Next up, the $10,000.00 bounty is on the line. "Money" by Pink Floyd anounces the entrance of this week's bounty hunter, the 320 pound Sugarbear Harris. The boos almost drown out the music. The crowd doesn't like this man, but they love the Big Cowboy. "In America" by Charley Daniels brings the crowd to their feet. Watts charges the ring, but Harris wisely bails out. The bell rings, and we're underway. Both men are toe-to-toe in the center of the ring. Harris sneers at Watts. He's trying to intimidate his man. I think he picked the wrong oppoenent for that....YES....Watts nails Harris in the face, and the fight is on...both men trading punches, neither willing to give an inch....Harris ducked!...Go behind on Watts, big belly to back suplex. Harris springs to his feet, and puts the boots to Watts. He's stomping the knee...that old football injury that Volkoff went after last week. Whoever put up that bounty money must be somebody that knows Watts preety well. I've known the man for years, and I just learned about the knee problem a few days ago. Watts battles to his feet....Hiptoss!....Watts is limping now, but he's good and mad too! Bodyslam! Pulling his man up, Watts sends him into the ropes....but Harris held the rope to break his momentum....Leaping Kick....Harris just crossed half the ring with the strangest leaping martial arts style kick I've ever seen....How can a man that size move like that? Watts is down, and Harris has left the ring. He's got a steel chair! Scrappy McGowan tries to take the chair away, but Harris shoves him to the side. Watts sees the chair, and ducks. A kick to the buttockal region, and Harris drops the chair. Watts has the chair, and he's WALKING TALL.....BAM.....Watts laid out Harris with the chair....then tosses it out of the ring....he's going to the referee....there's the cover......1-----------2----------------3! Cowboy Bill Watts pinned Sugarbear Harris in 15:24 with the steel chair.
Now it's time for the Louisiana Heavyweight Title match. Last Friday, at Ground Zero, Mike George & Bob Roop were tag team partners. They didn't see things eye to eye, and Bob Roop got pinned. After the match, he sucker punched Mike George, and this match was signed as a result. One fall, 30-minute timelimit. The bell rings, and Bob Roop wants to shake hands. George looks to the fans, who shout "NO"...but Roop offers his hand again...he even crosses his heart....George is giving him the benefit of the doubt. He's going to shake Bob Roops hand....NASTY KICK to the stomach. George never should have trusted Roop. George is down, and Roop caught him with the knee. Another one, but George rolls away. Back to his feet, and George takes Roop down with a football tackle. Floatover into a hammerlock, but Roop goes to the ropes. Clean break by George, into a headlock on Roop, but Roop uses the hair to take his man down. Head Scissors now on George, as Roop is in charge at the moment. Mike George is going for the headstand escape, but Roop is ready for the move....mini-piledriver on George, and Roop rolls clear. Roop moves in to the attack, but George catches him with a fireman's carry, into a top wristlock....Roop pokes the eyes to escape, and the Referee is warning Roop. Roop denies any wrongdoing, and the fans are letting him have it. Bob Roop goes to the ropes to yell at a fan....George is on his feet....he sees Roops back is turned.....Belly-to-Back Suplex into a bridge....1-------2-----------3!!!!!!!! Mike George got Roop napping, and took advantage of the opportunity to become the NEW LOUISIANA HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION! Time of the match was 17:53.
Next up is a Tag Team War.....Texas Tornado rules, all four men in the ring at the same time. These teams really don't like each other. Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyries" announces the arrival of the Teutonic Terrors, Baron Von Raske & Killer Karl Krupp. Wait a minute....Skandar Akbar is with them. These men must have signed Akbar to be their manager. No titles are on the line tonight, but Akbar must have something up his sleeve. He's always after the top men in the sport. Last Friday, he apparently made an offer to new North American Heavyweight Champion The Spoiler, but that contract was torn up in his face. "Another One Bites the Dust" means only one thing in Mid South....and here comes the Junkyard Dog with Captain Redneck Dick Murdock. There's the bell, and hold onto your hats, wrestling fans. This one is going to be wild. Murdock is going after Von Raske, and the Dog is tied up with Krupp in the opening minutes. Bodyslam from Murdock, clothesline from the Dog and they've cleared the ring. Von Raske & Krupp are huddled with Akbar, and the Dog is howling. The fans are on their feet here in Thibodaux. Murdock holds the ropes open to invite the Germans back in the ring. The Dog gets tired of waiting, and goes to the floor after Krupp. Murdock follows, and blasts Von Raske, only to get blindsided by Akbar. Von Raske puts the boots to Murdock as Dog rolls Krupp back in the ring. Murdock is coming back on the floor, nailing Akbar with a mule kick, and tying up with Von Raske. Krupp gains the upperhand on JYD, as Scrappy McGowan struggles to get this match under control. Murdock is back in the ring now, going after Krupp with the elbow, and the Dog intercepts Von Raske. Murdock with the powerslam on Krupp...but Von Raske makes the save. JYD nails Von Raske, but Akbar tripped him up from outside the ring. Murdock is alone in the ring, fists and firing away on both the big Germans, as the Dog hammers Akabar...but wait a minute....that's Count Sciluna! And he's got a chair! Count Sciluna just nailed the Junkyard Dog with a steel chair! Murdock slams Von Raske, but Krupp caught him with a clothesline. Akbar & Sciluna are beating the hell out of JYD outside the ring......Murdock is in trouble now, as the doubleteam continues from Krupp & Von Raske. The Dog has faught his way back to his feet...He just leveled Akbar with a powerslam on the concrete....but Krupp has the Eye Claw on Murdock! Von Raske clips Murdock from behind and he's down. This hold is dangerous! He could blind Dick Murdock right here in Thibodaux. JYD is on the apron, but Count Sciluna has his legs.....Scrappy McGowan makes the count..... 1------------2--------------3! What an upset! Baron Von Raske & Killer Karl Krupp just beat the Mid-South Tag Team Champions in a wild and wooly affair. Time of the match was 24:13. I'm sure a rematch for the titles will be signed between these teams. Akbar on the outside spells worlds of trouble for JYD & Murdock.
This next match has a very serious stipulation. The loser of the fall, by pinfall or submission, must leave Mid-South Wrestling. There's no time limit, no disqualification, and all the other wrestlers are banned from ringside. There must be a winner. Ken Mantell & Buck Robley have some bad blood between them. It goes way back over the last 10 years, and the hatred between these two men is so intense, it's got to be settled right here. There's the bell, and we're underway. Both men are wary, nobody wants to make a mistake in this one. Robley looks a little stiff...maybe he's still feeling the effects of the piledriver from Bob Orton last friday. Mantell pulls the hair to take Robley down, but Buck rolls clear and counters with a closed fist to the head. Mantell with a kick to the belly, swinging neckbreaker....he's going for the win right now...but Robley kicks out. Mantell still on Robley, now he's stomping the arm. You know, Buck Robley wears that orthopedic brace on his arm. Some people say that he gets a little "extra advantage" if he adjusts that brace a certain way. Robley is hurting now, but he crawls to the ropes to break the hold. Robley gouged the eyes on the break. Robley is no stranger to taking shortcuts when he needs them, but the fans seem to like him anyway. Robley is up now, double axehandle on Mantell, he's going for a pile driver...but Mantell powers out, dropping Robley with the back drop. Kneedrop to the head, and Robley is busted open. Mantell is hammering away on Robley, but Buck is firing back. Robley fires his man into the ropes...and there's the sleeper! Robley has the sleeper on Ken Mantell.....Mantell is deperate...he backs Robley into the corner to break the hold....and he's going to the tights....Mantell has got something....here comes Robley......POWDER! Right in the eyes....Robley is blinded....It's a no disqualification match, so there's nothing McGown can do.....Robley finds the ropes, and tumbles through to the floor...he's wiping the powder away with his "Nobody call me yellow" T-shirt, but Mantell Follows his man...RINGPOST! ...Mantell ran Robley into the ringpost...Robley is down....Mantell rolls him back into the ring.....He's going to the top rope....but Robley got a boot up. Somehow, Buck Robley dug way down deep and found something extra....he's using the ropes to climb to his feet....Bloody, powder mingles with blood on his shirt, a manaical look on his face.....Mantell is getting up....and Robley is adjusting that Armbrace....The fans are on their feet....Mantell turns around....and ROBLEY LAID HIM OUT!!!!....Mantell is busted open....Robley goes for the pin.....1----------2----------3!!!!!! Ken Mantell must leave Mid-South! Robley isn't satisfied....he stomps his man....he's ripping off that yellow t-shirt....he's stuffing in Mantell's mouth.....What a match! I'm sure an athlete like Ken Mantell will find work somewhere, but he's gone from Mid-South as of right now.
Main Event time in Thibodaux. This will be a 19 man, Over the Top Rope Battle Royal, featuring all of the wrestling stars here in Mid-South. The winner of the match gets a shot at the WCFL World Heavyweight Title next week, when WCFL Champion Dusty Rhodes comes to New Orleans. The rules are simple. The only way to eliminate a wrestler is to throw him over the top rope to the floor. Last man standing in the ring is the winner. I see the wrestlers are in the ring, and there's the bell. Volkoff just nailed Sciluna with a wicked clothesline. Murdock goes after Krupp, JYD tangles with Von Raske, Rick Youngblood is thrown over the top by Sugarbear Harris. Youngblood is eliminated! El Fantastico dropkicks Orton....up and over the top...Orton is eliminated! The Spoiler is standing on the apron...he's not involved in the action right now, I wonder why?

Watch for more big ennouncements
from: Grey Ghost
In the first match, the high-flying El Fantastico pinned Count Michael Sciluna with a spectacular top-rope maneuver that defies description.
Next, we saw Sugar Bear Harris destroy young Rick Youngblood. This man Harris is powerful and agile! I'm sure we'll be seeing him challenging for a championship belt before long.
In the most surprising incident so far this evening, the popular team of Ricky Fields and Terry Latham scored an upset victory in our last match. It looked like Bob Roop and Mike George had a difference of opinion about their strategy, as all through the match Roop kept going to the shortcuts. It all came to a head when George tagged in Roop, but refused to hold Latham for a double team. Roop shoved George, but Terry Latham caught him with the inside cradle for the win. After the match, Roop shook hands with George, but then sucker punched him as he tried to leave the ring.
Our next match has two old enemies squaring off to settle an old grudge. I don't know what started it, but these two men fought all over Oklahoma, and now they're about to go at it again here in Jackson. Ken Mantell issued the challenge, and Buck Robley raised the stakes. I see Ken Mantell is already in the ring, and now the music "Flirting with Disaster" announces the arrival of Colonel Buck Robley. He's got that Indian Strap with him, and let me tell you, that thing is wicked. It's eight feet long by two inches wide, with a cuff for the wrist at each end. When that leather gets wet, it becomes razor sharp, and it'll peel the hide right off a man's back. To win this match, one man has to drag the other man around the ring, touching each top turnbuckle in succession. These two are really going at it. Robley had the early advantage, but Mantell got in a low blow to turn the tide. He's lashing Robley with that strap....OH...he's been busted open. Mantell is going for the win right here. He's got that strap wrapped around Buck's feet, and now he's starting that long walk around the ring. There's one turnbuckle, but Robley grabbed the rope. Mantell swings at Robley, only to catch a double boot to the chest. Mantell and referee Jerry Usher bumped heads! Usher is down! I think Buck lured him into that one. Robley is one crafty veteran of the squared circle. Uh-OH....he's doing something with that armbrace. Buck Robley just loaded up the arm, and he nailed Mantell. Mantell is bleeding, and Robley's laughing. That man is twisted, but the fans love him. Wait a minute here...Who's that running to the ring? That's Bob Orton! Oh My *** ...He just nailed Robley, and quarters went flying everywhere. Robley's out like a light. Mantell is struggling to his feet, and Orton's putting the boots ro Robley. The Referee is still down. Somebody stop this! They're setting him up for Orton's pile driver. OHHHHHH! Robley's down, and his body is starting to spasm. He could be seriously injured. Orton slides out of the ring, as Mantell revives Jerry Usher. The crowd is coming unglued! This isn’t right! The ref has no choice, he's got to count...there's one turnbuckle...two..........three...............four. This match is over, and Ken Mantell is your winner. What a miscarriage of justice. There may be serious consequences when this film is reviewed. Latham, Fields, and Youngblood have come out to help Robley to the back. He's going to need medical attention.
Our next match is the Bounty Match. A $10,000.00 Bounty has been placed on Cowboy Bill Watts. Any man that puts him in the hospital collects the cash. Nobody knows who's behind this, but I guarantee you, with that kind of money on theline, all kinds of men are going to cash in. We've already heard from The Assassins in Florida, and an unidentified wrestler from Texas. Coming to the ring now, to the sound of the Russian National Anthem, Igor Volkoff. Boy the crowd really hates this guy. Listen to those boos! And there's the music from Charlie Daniels...."In America" That means Cowboy Bill Watts, and the fans love it. American flags are everywhere! I think President Reagan would be awfully proud of all these patriotic Americans here tonight. Wait a minute! The Cowboy just charged the ring. He's not waiting for the bell, he's going right after this big Russian. Watts didn't come here to wrestle, he came to fight! He backs the big man into the corner, and those ain't forearms. Watts is using the closed fist to hammer Volkoff. Jerry Usher is trying to separate the men long enough to start the match. There it is, the bell has rung, and we're underway. Volkoff wants to wrestle, but Watts has got his fists up. Usher warns Watts about the fists, and Volkoff sneaks in a cheap shot to Watts' knee. He's got an old football injury, and this Russian is attacking the weakness. I wonder who is supplying this bounty hunter with information? Watts is down, and Volkoff is working the knee. he's setting him up for that Russian variation of the figure four he uses. What a dangerous hold...once he gets it locked in, he can break a man's leg. Watts kicks him off, and gets to his feet, but he's limping. That weak knee may be injured already. Volkoff circles his man like a shark smelling blood from his wounded prey. He got too close, and Watts takes him down with a football tackle. Watts is laying into Volkoff, but the Russian rolls him over, and know he's tagging Watts. The two are trying to take each other apart! They roll into the ropes, and Jerry Usher calls for the break. Volkoff is bleeding from his nose. I think the Cowboy broke his nose, but that won't stop Volkoff. Russian Leg Sweep! Watts is down, and Volkoff goes back to the leg, stomping away at the knee. Into the ropes, and once again the ref calls for the break. Watts is up again, but that knee has been damaged. It doesn't look like he can put his full weight on that leg. Inside Cradle by Watts! 1-----2----kickout. Watts gambled on that one, but he almost got the win. Sideheadlock by Volkoff, he turns away from the ref....He's punching Watts with the closed fist. Wait a minute...Watts seems to be gathering his strength...the fans are cheering him on with the U-S-A chant....he rams Volkoff into the corner to break the hold....Volkoff staggers back, dazed...and Watts has got him...The Oklahoma Stampede....Volkoff never saw it coming....1---------2-----------------3! Cowboy Bill Watts wins the match, and the bounty is there for another man to try at our next big show, Labor Day, live from the Thibodaux Civic Center.
Wrestling fans, it's been a wild night here in Jackson, and we've still got three championship matches left to go.
This next match is for the Mississippi State Heavyweight Title. One fall, with a 30 minute timelimit. The challenger is very popular with the fans in the Mid-South. That Bullfighter music introduces the superstar from South of the Border, Supersock Jose Lothario. And now here's the theme from "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly" to announce the arrival of the Champion, Bob Orton. This crowd remembers what he did to Buck Robley earlier in the evening, and they're really letting him hear about it. The bell rings, and the match is on. Collar and elbow tie up, into a side headlock by Lothario. Orton is saying his hair was pulled but Jerry Usher allows the action to continue. Jose is cranking down on that headlock, and there's a shot with the open palm to Orton's face. That's a legal blow here in Mid-South. Orton is setting his feet...there's a backdrop to break the hold. Orton shakes his head to clear the cobwebs, as Lothario gestures to the crowd. They're solidly behind this Mexican legend. Orton offers the test of strength...the fans warn Jose not to trust Orton, but Lothario isn't going to refuse the challenge. Each man strains for the advantage, but it looks like Lothario is gaining the upper hand...he's starting to force Orton down.....OH....Cheap shot by Orton with a kick to the ribs, followed by a knee to the face. Lothario's down, Orton goes for the cover, but they're in the ropes. No clean break by Orton as he continues to hammer Lothario....Bodyslam, followed by a big kneedrop...Orton is pulling the man up now...he's going for that pile driver. If he hits this, the match is over.....but Jose Lothario powered out of the move, with a back drop. Lothario's temper is starting to show. He's blasting Orton with powerful chops to the chest. You can hear those all over the Stadium. Jose raises the fist...Orton may be about to learn why they call this man "SuperSock"....but Jerry usher is on the job...he grabs Lothario's arm to prevent the illegal punch. Orton takes advantage of the distraction. He spins his man around, he's got him up....OH....Atomic Kneedrop....he's going for the pin.....he's got the tights....Bob Orton is using the tights...Jerry Usher doesn't see it....1-----------2---------------3! Bob Orton wins the match, and retains his Mississippi Heavyweight Title.
Wait a minute, El Fantastico is in the ring. He's telling the referee about Orton using the tights. Jerry Usher turns to Orton, but he denies it...El Fantastico and Jose Lothario are pointing to the fans at ringside...they say yes he did it....Jerry Usher throws up his hands. He's telling Lothario he didn't see Orton use the tights, so the decision stands. Orton laughs at Lothario.....OH....he shouldn't have done that....out of nowhere, Lothario lands a right cross that drops Orton....and that is why they call this man Supersock! Lothario leaves without the belt, but Orton may be without a tooth after that punch.
The next match is for the Mid-South Tag Team Title. The challengers, now making their way to the ring to the sound of Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyries", the Teutonic Terrors, Baron Von Raske and Killer Karl Krupp. The crowd doesn't like these arrogant Germans, goosestepping around the ring and giving that Hitler salute. Hold onto your hats....that song is "Another One Bites the Dust"....here come the Champions, Captain Redneck Dick Murdoch and the Junkyard Dog! The Dog clears the ring with that chain on his collar, as Burdock salutes an American Flag at ringside. This match is one fall, with a 45 minute time limit. There's the bell, and it's going to be Murdoch against Krupp at the start. This Killer Karl Krupp is maniacal. He's injured many men, and ended a few careers in his day. When Baron Von Raske is the sane member, you know you've got one dangerous team. There's no telling what these men may do. Both are masters of variations of the Iron Claw. Krupp applies his directly to an opponent’s eyesocket. He doesn't care if he blinds a man for life, as long as he wins a match. Murdoch with the early advantage, catches Krupp with a jab, follows with a right cross, and there's a body slam as Krupp tags out to Von Raske. Fans, for some reason, General Skandar Akbar has come to ringside. He's got a clipboard, and he's taking a chair in a neutral corner. Is he taking notes? He said he's looking for somebody worthy of joining his "Army". Back in the ring, Von Raske has gained the upperhand on Murdoch. He's got an armbar, and there's the tag back to Krupp. Cheap shot on the break, and the Dog enters the ring to prevent the double team.......Jerry Usher sees him coming, and he's going to make the dog leave the ring. Turn around ref! The Germans are double teaming Murdoch...bodyslam from Raske...kneedrop from the top rope by Krupp.... He may have broken the man's ribs! Akbar likes what he sees. He's smiling as he writes something on that clipboard. Murdoch is in serious trouble now, after the doubleteam from the Germans. He's been busted open, but he's trying to get to his corner for the tag. If he can reach the Dog, this place is going to explode! He made the tag!....Somehow he dug down deep enough to drag himself over to the Dog, and JYD is on fire! He drops Raske, then nails Krupp with a headbutt, sending him through the ropes to the floor. Raske backs up as the Dog is howling in the center of the ring. Murdoch is standing in the corner, but he's not looking good right now. That was some beating he took. Raske & Krupp confer in the corner, but the Dog is tired of waiting. He spins Raske around and knocks him into the corner, but the tag is made. JYD tries to turn to face Krupp, but Von Raske trips him from the corner. Akbar is lighting a cigar, and smiling broadly. It's clear that he likes what he sees in this German team. These guys are monsters. They've gone toe-to-toe with Murdoch & JYD, and they haven't given an inch. Later in the match, JYD is rocking Raske with punches, and the German is busted open. There's blood on both sides now, as the Dog tags in Murdoch. Captain Redneck has his second wind, and he's getting some payback for those cheapshots earlier in the match. He's got Raske in position...I think he's going for his Gourdbuster. If he hits this, the match will end. I've never seen anybody kickout after a Gourdbuster from this man. He's got Von Raske up...this is it...but Krupp nails him from behind....JYD is in the ring....this is breaking down....all four men are in the ring, and there's nothing the ref can do to regain control. These four are tearing each other apart...and look at Akbar...he's laughing. What a sadistic individual he is. Jerry Usher is counting....that's it. The match was out of control, and Jerry Usher has disqualified both teams. But they're still going at it....wrestlers from the back are coming out to help pull these teams apart.
Wow. That was something, but it looks like we've got order restored here in Jackson, and it's time for the Main Event of the evening.
This match is for the North American Heavyweight Title. The challenger, entering to the sound of "Hells Bells" by AC/DC, from Parts unknown, a former North American champion, THE SPOILER! His opponent is the popular man called the Brandon Bull, the current North American Heavyweight Champion, PAUL ORNDORF, entering to "Wild Thing" by The Troggs. Boy these Mid-South fans love Orndorff. Earlier today, the young ladies were lining up to get free autographed pictures of the wrestlers, and we ran out of Orndorf's pictures. We do still have plenty of pictures of Count Michael Sicluna, if anyone is interested. There's the bell, and the main event is in progress. Both men move cautiously, feeling out the opponent in the early minutes of this all important championship match. The Spoiler is a very deliberate wrestler, and an absolute master of the human chess that is professional wrestling, the king of sports. Akbar is back at ringside with that clipboard again. The Spoiler fixes him with an icy glare. Do these men have a history I don't know about? Orndorff is in trouble already....The Spoiler rolled him up of the ropes...Jerry Usher counts ....1-----------2-----------KICKOUT. The Spoiler almost stole a victory there. This man means business. Orndorff seems off balance. He wasn't expecting Spoiler to move that quickly, and he's got to keep an eye on Akbar at ringside too. OH....that's a nasty clothesline from Spoiler. He nearly took Orndorf's head off with that one. The man is down, and Spoiler is climbing the turnbuckle. What's he going to do? LOOK AT THIS!!! The Spoiler is WALKING THE TOP ROPE! A man that big, that agile, what an incredible combination. HUGE ELBOW TO THE HEAD....AND THERE IT IS.....THE DREADED CLAW.....The Germans use the claw too, but nobody does it like this man.....Orndorff is convulsing.....his shoulders are down....1--------------2-------------------3!!!!!!!!!!
We have a new North American Heavyweight Champion! The Spoiler dominated Paul Orndorff, and won the title in 10:12. Amazing. Everyone knew his reputation, but I don’t think anyone expected this. This man is lethal. Orndorff is being helped to the back. Akbar is approaching The Spoiler...he's offering him the clipboard...what is it? A Contract? Spoilers got the clipboard...he's reading something....He tore it up! The Spoiler read whatever it was Akbar handed him, then he ripped it to shreds. He's walking away. Akbar is furious. Nobody turns the General down.
