    Re: Rebooking The WWE, Starting in Jan 1985....

    Hey guys,


    I have posted this on a couple of other boards, but wanted to share with you guys to.


    My diary will run from the start of January 1985 to the present day.


    I am not using any game to post my results, but just write the results as I see fit.


    It will include all television and Pay Per View Results from the year. And the odd news tidbits – which will relate to rumours and news of releases from the company.


    Current Champions going into 1985 are -


    WWF World Heavyweight Champion - Hulk Hogan
    WWF Intercontinental Champion - Greg "The Hammer" Valentine
    WWF Women's Champion - Wendi Richter
    WWF Tag Team Champions - Adrian Adonis & Dick Murdoch


    It is important to point out that I will be changing some booking decisions but not all. Some historic moments and angles will still be kept. It is also significant to point out that wrestlers deaths will not be written into my booking I.E Brian Pillman and Owen Hart will not be written out abruptly and will be phased out over time. Also injuries to key wrestlers may well not happen. (I will try to stay faithful to the injuries though)


    TV Programmes in 1985 - Super seeding the old All American Wrestling and Championship Wrestling will be two brand new shows that will both be on an hour each week. The shows will not just be full of squash matches and actually showcase top one on one and tag action.
    *Prime Time Wrestling - Runs on Tuesday Nights
    *Wrestling Challenge - Runs on Saturday Nights




    I hope you enjoy and I already have up to June 1986 already booked, so you have at least a years worth of history to (hopefully) look forward to.



    So here it is the first show -
    Wrestling Challenge - 5/01/85 (English Date Format)
    @ Los Angeles, CA - Sports Arena

    The commentary team of Gorilla Monsoon and Lord Alfred Hayes welcome us to a brand new year in the WWF and a brand new show - Wrestling Challenge.

    They say tonight we will see a huge main event as former Intercontinental Champion Tito Santana will meet the current champion Greg "The Hammer" Valentine in one on one action.
    To our first match.

    The Junkyard Dog (hugely over with the crowd) pinned former WWF champion The Iron Sheik ( with "Classie" Freddie Blassie at (3.02) after a head butt. The announcers are shocked at how quickly The Dog pinned a former WWF Champion.

    It is reported that Triple Crown winner Pedro Morales has suffered a freak accident in the ring at a recent house show and will be out injured for the foreseeable future. We will keep you updated with his progress.
    Interview with the Intercontinental Champion Greg “The Hammer” Valentine. Valentine informs us that Tito Santana has no chance of taking his title in this weeks main event.

    Rowdy Roddy Piper and Cowboy Bob Orton Pinned Jimmy Snuka and The Tonga Kid at (6.13) when Piper hit a swinging neck breaker on The Tonga Kid.

    WWF Women's Champion Wendi Richter Pinned Judy Martin at (3.12) with a facebuster.
    Interview with Mean Gene Okerlund and Chief Jay Strongbow. During the Interview he is blindsided by Buddy Rose….This leads to…..

    Buddy Rose pinned Chief Jay Strongbow at (6.34) Rose continues the beating after the bell as he leaves to a chorus of boos from the crowd.

    Tito Santana beat Intercontinental Champion Greg “The Hammer” Valentine at (16.54) by disqualification when The Hammer continued to choke out Santana in the corner in the ring.

    As we fade out Gorilla Monsoon manges to make sure we aren't doing anything this Tuesday, and be sure to tune in and watch the debut of yet another show - Prime Time Wrestling, which will include a 20 man over the top rope battle royal.

    Re: Rebooking The WWE, Starting in Jan 1985....

    Prime Time Wrestling - 8/01/85
    @ Oakland, CA – Coliseum

    Commentary team of Vince McMahon and the first ever Intercontinental Champion Pat Patterson.

    The first match of the night was The US Express (Barry Windham & Mike Rotundo) pinned the The Moondogs (Rex and Spot) after a bulldog from Windham on Rex (3.21). The commentary team really put over the young team of Windham and Rotundo and how they have managed to quite easily defeat former tag team champions in Rex and Spot.

    It is mentioned by the commentary team that on the 12/01/85 addition of Wrestling Challenge we will see a rematch between Tito Santana and Greg "The Hammer" Valentine for the Intercontinental Title.

    Double countout at (5.12) between Tony Atlas and Nikolai Volkoff (with "Classie" Freddie Blassie)

    Blackjack Mulligan wins a 20 man over the top rope challenge. (15.10) Mentioned that he could well be a challenger for either Hulk Hogan’s or Greg Valentine’s title after this victory.
    Participants and order of Elimination -
    1. Terry Gibbs
    2. David Schultz
    3. Steve Pardee
    4. Jose Luis Rivera (Later to be one of The Conquistadors)
    5. Guy Lambert
    6. Adrian Adonis (Half of The Tag Champs)
    7. Jack Brisco
    8. Charlie Fulton
    9. Johnny Rodz
    10. Alexis Smirnoff
    11. Swede Hanson
    12. Salvatore Bellomo
    13. The Spoiler
    14. Jerry Brisco
    15. Bret Hart
    16. David Sammartino
    17. George Wells
    18. Ivan Putski
    19. Dick Murdoch (Half of The Tag Champs)
    Winner - Blackjack Mulligan

    The main talking points of the Battle Royal were - Adonis was eliminated early by Jack Brisco. Adonis was upset at his early elimination and therefore pulled out Jack Brisco – they continued to fight to the back. The rest of the match was your standard Battle Royal. The announcers really push Bret Hart as one to watch for the future.

    Promo video aired for The WWF Champion Hulk Hogan.

    Brutus Beefcake (with Johnny Valiant) defeated SD Jones at (5.43) with the Sleeper Hold.

    Valiant and Beefcake cut a promo after the match that Beefcake is the future of the WWF and that Valiant is his new manager. The announcers put over that Beefcake could go far with the Legendary Valiant in his corner.

    Main Event for the show was Andre The Giant pinning Ken Patera (with Bobby Heenan) after simply sitting on his opponent. (6.17) Show fades out as Andre celebrates with the fans as we see a still of te Santana / Valentine remtach for this saturday on Wrestling Challenge.

    Don Muraco (with Mr Fuji) Pinned Swede Hanson at (4.12) after a tombstone piledriver.

    Vince McMahon interviews the challenger in tonight’s main event Tito Santana. Santana says that by the end of the night he will be a two time Intercontinental Champion.

    Re: Rebooking The WWE, Starting in Jan 1985....

    Prime Time Wrestling - 15/01/85
    @ East Rutherford, NJ – Meadowlands

    Commentary team of Vince McMahon and Pat Patterson

    Before our first match we see a clip from last weeks battle royal won by Blackjack Mulligan. Theclip focuses on the elimination of half the tag team champions Adrian Adonis and him eliminating on of the Brisco Brothers. The two then brawl to the back.

    Tag Team Champions Adrian Adonis and Dick Murdoch pinned Jack and Jerry Brisco at (7.34)

    This match stemmed from the 20 man Battle Royal last week. Adonis got the pin fall after a DDT on Jack. The Champs get on the mic after and challenge any team in the back that thinks that can beat them to come down and come get some. Out from the back come Barry Windham & Mike Rotundo - The US Express. The Tag Champs scarper through the crowd like cowardly heels. The crowd goes wild for the seemingly new challengers to the Tag Straps.

    The Roundup with Gene Okerlund is up next. Gene says that the WWF is the place to be to watch all the new upcoming superstars, Gene mentions names such as Bret Hart and the following superstar that will surely make a big impact in the future of the federation.
    *Brutus Beefcake (with Johnny Valliant) submission over Swede Hanson (Actual match went 5.16)
    * Don Muraco (with Mr Fuji) pinned SD Jones (Actual match went 6.54)
    * Blackjack Mulligan pinned David Schultz (Actual match went 4.13)

    Gene mentions that Blackjack Mulligan could well call in his shot at a singles title in sooner rather than later. (Mulligan has the right to challange any champion following on from his win in the Battle Royal last week.)

    Mr Wrestling II pinned Les Thornton at (3.12) after an underhook suplex.

    Cowboy Bob Orton Pinned Ivan Putski at (8.19) following a DDT.

    The Hulk Hogan Video promo again aired.

    Johnny Rodz pinned Jose Luis Rivera at (4.53) after a backbreaker.

    Big John Studd and Ken Patera (with Bobby Heenan) pinned Andre The Giant and Junkyard Dog at (5.13) when Studd pinned Junkyard Dog after a body slam. Giant and Studd have a stare down as the show goes off air. The commentators wonder what would happen if these behemoths ever collided one on one.

    Re: Rebooking The WWE, Starting in Jan 1985....

    Wrestling Challenge – 19/01/85
    WWF @ Columbus, OH

    The commentary team consists of Gorilla Monsoon and Lord Alfred Hayes.
    Show kicks off with what the announcers put over as quite the upset as Bret Hart pinned Buddy Rose at (5.14) with a cradle suplex. Buddy Rose is pissed after the match and starts moaning at the match official that he laid on a fast three count.

    The Foreign Legion (Nikolai Volkoff & the Iron Sheik) (with "Classie" Freddie Blassie) defeated by submission Salvatore Bellomo & SD Jones. When Jones submitted to Sheik’s camel clutch at (3.21)

    The Roundup with Gene Okerlund is up next.
    Mean Gene says that the tag team scene is livening up with Barry Windham & Mike Rotundo seemingly gunning for the tag team straps. However we shouldn’t forget about other the teams that could well be in the hunt for the titles.
    *Tony Atlas & George Wells Pinned The Moondogs (Spot and Rex) (Actual time of match was 5.12)
    Another tag team that were victorious was –
    *Jack and Jerry Brisco Pinned AJ Petruzzi and Terry Gibbs (Actual match went 3.21)
    The Roundup finishes with what could turn out to be a full out war between six of the top superstars in the world today.

    *"Mr Wonderful" Paul Orndorff Pinned The Junkyard Dog (Actual match went 11.19) when Cowboy Bob Orton cloaked The Dog with a belt buckle wrapped around his fist. After the match Orndorff, Orton and now Rowdy Roddy Piper puts the boots to The Dog – as Blackjack Mulligan runs down – however he is overpowered too – eventually Andre The Giant cleans house and helps the faces to their feet.

    David Sammartino (with Bruno Sammartino) pinned David Schultz at (4.56) following a powerslam. Bruno raises his son's hand after the match.

    The commentators say that a match between The WWF Champion Hulk Hogan and Rowdy Roddy Piper has been signed for next month and that there will be chances to see parts of the match right here on Wrestling Challenge.

    A promo for new superstar Hillbilly Jim is shown. It is put across that Hillbilly is coming to the WWF to become a superstar just like his idol Hulk Hogan. We see Hillbilly Jim training in his basement - lifting weights.
    Tito Santana pinned Rene Goulet at (5.45) following a flying forearm.

    Interview with The US Express (Barry Windham & Mike Rotundo) they say that The Champs Adrian Adonis and Dick Murdoch better watch their backs as they will be the next tag team champs.

    Brutus Beefcake (with Johnny Valliant) submission over Jose Luis Rivera at (4.16) with the sleeper hold.

    Jimmy Snuka and Don Muraco (with Mr Fuji) went to a (15.00) minute time limit draw in the main event. Neither man could put the other man down. The ring announcer announces a draw as the show goes off the air

    Re: Rebooking The WWE, Starting in Jan 1985....

    Fairly good start so far. I really like the booking for Adonis/Murdoch vs US Express. I imagine that match would be so much better at Wrestlemania than Volkoff/Sheik vs Express was. The slow burn pushes of Sammartino and Hart is also good. If there's one major issue I have with your BTB it's how up and down of a career several wrestlers have. One week Buddy Rose looks like a star, but the next he's getting a double count out then losing to rookie, Hart. Then there's George Wells. A couple of good wins to make this jobber look like a decent wrestler, only to then have him put over Studd. I understand you're putting over Studd as one of your best heels, but you could have found someone else to put him over without hurting Wells.

    Besides that, I'd say just add more detail to your results. It'll help the reader get more into your BTB instead of just feeling like we're reading results.

    Re: Rebooking The WWE, Starting in Jan 1985....

    Thanks for the feedback. I posted so many results as I have all of 1985 booked.

    With regards to more detailed shows, this is something that is incorparted into future shows. I am now booked up to July 1986 and the shows have a lot more detail than the ones I have posted on here.

    Buddy Rose and George Welles are only really going to be jobber to the stars, especially with the mass expansion of the roster going through 1985. Wells will probably see more success with his tag partner Tony Atlas than as a single star. Bret Hart of course will be getting a steady push over the years:-)

    Please keep with the first lot of results they aren't very detailed but they do get more detailed as time passes.

    Thanks and hope you enjoy.

    Prime Time Wrestling - 05/02/85
    @ Lorain, OH - Palace Civic Center

    Vince McMahon and Pat Patterson or your commentary team this week.
    Before our first match we see a clip from a couple of weeks back when Tony Atlas defeated Brutus Beefcake by D/Q after Johnny Valliant got involved.

    Tony Atlas and George Wells pinned Brutus Beefcake and Johnny Valliant at (4.54) when Atlas pinned Valliant cleanly after a press slam. Atlas and Wells pick up an impressive victory. However Brutus still has yet to taste defeat via pinfall or submission since he entered the WWF.

    Before his debut match - Hillbilly Jim gets on the microphone and introduces himself to the WWF fans. He says it has been his life long dream to be a superstar in the World Wresting Federation, just like his favourite wrestler and Idol - Hulk Hogan.

    Hillbilly Jim submission over Moondog Rex with a bearhug at (3.34). Impressive debut by the Hillbilly, the fans have taken to him straight away.

    Interview backstage with Vince McMahon and the challenges to the Tag Team Titles The US Express (Barry Windham & Mike Rotundo) They say that Murdoch and Adonis’ reign as Tag Champs will end here next week. They bring out a man from the back who will inspire them to victory – “The Manager Of Champions” Captain Lou Albano. Huge pop from the crowd. Albano says that he has guided some of the tag team greats to the sumit of the WWF, and he will strike gold again with The US Express.

    Don Muraco (with Mr Fuji) pinned Bret Hart at (10.10).Bret Hart’s first loss in the WWF. Muraco does a roll up with a handful of tights.

    Interview with Tag Team Champs Dick Murdoch and Adrian Adonis. They say it does not matter who Windham and Rotundo have in their corner next week, they will still loose to the best tag team in the industry today.

    Jim “The Anvil" Neidhart (with Jimmy Hart) pinned Tony Garea at (4.21) following a powerslam. This is a rematch from a few weeks back. Neidhart again makes relativley short work of the former multiple tag team champion.

    Promo with Andre The Giant. He says he will rid the WWF of Big John Studd once and for all. Andre is and always will be the only true Giant in the WWF.

    The Foreign Legion (Nikolai Volkoff & the Iron Sheik)(with "Classie" Freddie Blassie) submission over Jack and Jerry Brisco at (12.34). When Jack submits to the Camel Clutch. Show fades as Volkoff tries to get the crowd to join in his rendition of the national anthem.

    Wrestling Challenge - 09/02/85
    @ Oklahoma City, OK - Memorial Auditorium

    Gorilla Monsoon and Lord Alfred Hayes were the commentators.
    The battle of the masked superstars kicked us off this week.

    Mr Wrestling II pinned The Spoiler at (3.21) following an underhook suplex.

    Promo for next weeks Prime Time Wrestling, as two titles will be on the line.

    WWF Champion Hulk Hogan against Rowdy Roddy Piper and Tag Team Champs Dick Murdoch and Adrian Adonis square off against The US Express (Barry Windham & Mike Rotundo) Be sure to tune into a huge night of wrestling action.

    Promo from The Foreign Legion (Nikolai Volkoff and The Iron Sheik) (With "Classie" Freddie Blassie). A very anti American promo. They warn the winners of the Tag match next week that they will be the next challengers to the Tag Team Gold.

    Tito Santana pinned Steve Lombardi at (2.34) Total Squash. Tito wins with the flying forearm.

    Interview with Bret Hart as he talks of his disappointment of his first pinfall loss at the hands of Don Muraco. His interview is interrupted when Jim ‘The Anvil’ Neidhart and Jimmy Hart come to the interview podium. Hart tries to talk Bret into allowing him to be his manager and that all three of them could take over the tag team world. Bret says he makes a good business proposition – however he will have to think about it.

    SD Jones pinned Terry Gibbs at (3.34) following a roll up.

    Another promo for next weeks Prime Time Wrestling. Two huge title matches will take place.

    David Sammartino pinned Ken Patera (with Bobby Heenan) at (9.34) following a powerslam. Another big victory for Sammartino – he vows to avenge his father’s injury at the hands of Cowboy Bob Orton and "Mr Wonderful" Paul Orndorff after the match.

    Interview with Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka who rants revenge on Mr Fuji and Don Muraco…This leads to a match –

    Prime Time Wrestling - 12/02/85
    @ Landover, MD - Capital Centre

    Commentary team of Vince McMahon and Pat Patterson.

    The US Express (Mike Rotundo & Barry Windham) (with Captain Lou Albano) pinned WWF Tag Team Champions Dick Murdoch and Adrian Adonis at (16.33) We have NEW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS as the influence of Albano has ended the reign of Adonis and Murdoch. Windham pinned Murdoch after a bulldog. The crowd goes wild as the new champs celebrate. This is short lived though as Nikolai Volkoff & the Iron Sheik aka - The Foreign Legion accompanied by Freddie Blassie blindside the new champs. They pose with the titles as Blassie taunts Albano that his guys will take the titles from them soon and that their reign will be short lived.

    Promo from Rowdy Roddy Piper – Tonight will see the crowning of a new era in the WWF.

    Don Muraco (with Mr Fuji) pinned George Wells (5.32) after a gorilla press slam. The commentators put over the roll that Muraco is on at the moment.

    Hillbilly Jim pinned Moondog Spot (2.11) after a legdrop. Hillbilly Jim squashes another Moondog. Hillbilly Jim came down the ring with a Hogan Bandana on his head.


    Interview with the Hillbilly after the match – he says that Hogan is his idol and that Piper is going down, which gets a great cheer from the crowd.

    Promo for Wrestlemania. Watch it on the 31st Of March.

    The Roundup with Mean Gene –
    Mene Gene speculates as to whether or not Bret Hart will take up Jimmy Hart’s offer and undertake his managerial expertise.
    We see a clip of a match between –
    *Bret Hart pinned Alexis Smirnoff (Actual Match went 4.21) Jimmy Hart and Jim ‘The Anvil’ Neidhart come down to the ring after to congratulate Bret. Bret seems uncomfortable with the situation.
    * The Junkyard Dog defeated David Schultz via disqualification (Actual match went 6.34) Piper’s cronies Bob Orton and Paul Orndorff attack JYD causing the match to be thrown out. David Sammartino runs out for the save. Sammartino wants to avenge his fathers injury.

    Interview with WWF Champion Hulk Hogan.

    WWF Champion Hulk Hogan and Rowdy Roddy Piper went to a NO CONTEST as the ref lost control of the match at (26.32) (Only 12.31 was aired on TV) Piper’s cronies Paul Orndorff and Cowboy Bob Orton tried to get involved in the match – this bought out David Sammartino and……newcomer Hillbilly Jim (who’s hero is Hulk Hogan). The faces cleared off the heels as the Hulkster shows Hillbilly Jim and David Sammartino how to Hulk up to the adulation of the fans.

    Great build-up to your biggest show so far with the latest Primetime. Probably the best build-up you have now is Don Muraco vs Snuka. My only concern is how over the feud would have been since they just finished up their huge 1983 feud a little over a year before this.

    Wrestlemania Predictions:

    Hulk Hogan, David Sammartino and Hillbilly Jim vs Roddy Piper, Bob Orton and Paul Orndorff
    (Maybe Hillbilly and Orton outside of the ring)

    Volkoff/Sheik vs US Express - Tag Titles

    Don Muraco vs Jimmy Snuka

    Andre the Giant vs Big John Studd

    Blackjack vs Greg Valentine - IC Title

    Maybe Bret's answer or the first Hart Foundation match
    --

    Hillbilly Jim is sending off Mickie James 2005-2006 vibes towards Hogan. I know you're booking it somewhat similar to how it really went down, but I'm starting to think Hillbilly has a shrine to Hogan and sleeps with a teddy bear made up of Hogan's hair from his brush.

    Wrestling Challenge – 16/02/85
    @ San Diego, CA

    Before the main show starts we are shown a quick recap of what happened on tuesday night, as we crowned new tag team champions.

    We see The US Express standing victorious with their new manager "Captain" Lou Albano and then being blindsided after the match by the new challengers to the titles The Foreign Legion. Also we see the closing moments of the no contest against WWF Champion Hulk Hogan and the number one contender Rowdy Roddy Piper.

    The commentators (Gorilla Monsoon and Lord Alfred Hayes) throw us to the first match of the night -

    "Mr Wonderful" Paul Orndorff and "Cowboy" Bob Orton pinned Jack & Jerry Brisco at (8.54) when Orndorff hit Jack Brisco with the piledriver. During the match the commentators talk of the morals of the two victorious men after they took out of action the legend that is Bruno Sammartino. Also during the match we have an interview in the top right hand corner by Bruno's son - David. He says that both men will get their comeupance.

    Jesse “The Body” Ventura defeated Terry Gibbs (3.42) by pinfall after a vicious looking backbreaker.

    Vince McMahon tells us that on Prime Time Wrestling a HUGE announcement will be made by WWF president Jack Tunney, regarding the main event for Wrestlemania.

    Tony Atlas pinned Ken Patera (with Bobby Heenan) with the press slam at (5.12) Patera hasn't been winning a lot of matches this year. A defeat to former tag team champion Atlas will only further place him away from future title shots. During the match the commentary team mention that Atlas' partner George Wells will meet Brutus Beefcake - still undefeated in this weeks main event.

    Interview with Jimmy Snuka conducted by Vince McMahon. Snuka promises revenge against the men who injured his best friend The Tonga Kid.

    Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart (with Jimmy Hart) pinned Rick McGraw at (3.12) with a powerslam.

    Promo for Wrestlemania.

    WWF Tag Team Champions The US Express (Barry Windham & Mike Rotundo) (with Capt. Lou Albano) defeated Steve Lombardi & Johnny Rodz at (3:03) when Rotundo pinned Lombardi with the airplane spin. The champs take to the mic and say they will be than happy to take up the challenge of The Foreign Legion. The US Express got the biggest pop of the night. This was also a non title match.

    Big John Studd (with Bobby Heenan) submission over Chief Jay Strongbow at (5.32) with the bearhug. Pre match Andre The Giant was ordered to the back as he wanted a piece of Big John Studd.

    Brutus Beefcake (with Johnny Valliant) submission over George Welles at (7.43) with the sleeper. Another impressive victory for Brutus. Before the match started we are taken though the recent issues between Beefcake/Valliant and Wells/Atlas.
