    Re: WORLD CLASS WRESTLING

    If you wish to read any or all past WCW shows (pre-episode 108 of Mayhem), you can do so by visiting Grey Dog Software.

    Older shows are in the TEW 2013 Dynasty section. Newer shows are in the TEW 2016 Dynasty section. In both sections, just look for the 'World Class Wrestling' thread.

    Re: WORLD CLASS WRESTLING

    Took me awhile to catch up but FINALLY up to date with this. Predictions below...

    WCW PRESENTS:


    SEASON'S
    BEATINGS


    LIVE - THIS SUNDAY ON PPV - SAN DIEGO, CA - VIEJAS ARENA - DECEMBER 10, 2017

    WCW WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH

    The New Spoiler (WC) vs. 'Macho Man' Randy Savage
    Savage focuses to much on unmasking TNS and maybe even succeeds but it costs him the match.

    SHARPSHOOTER vs. SHARPSHOOTER SUBMISSION MATCH

    Dynamite Kid vs. 'Hitman' Bret Hart
    I can't see you bringing in Bret to job in a Sharpshooter match

    'Nature Boy' Ric Flair w/ 'Mr. Wonderful' Paul Orndorff in his corner vs. 'The Bad Guy' Scott Hall w/ 'Living Legend' Larry Zbysko in his corner
    I think this one ends in a tag match so Hall gets the win here

    WCW WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
    Don Muraco & 'Superfly' Jimmy Snuka (WTTC) vs. The Skyscrapers
    More entertaining.

    TABLES MATCH
    Tom Zenk vs. Eric Embry
    His character work is so much fun right now, so hope you capitalise on the momentum

    TRU TV CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
    'Dirty' Dick Slater (TVC) vs. Sgt. Slaughter
    (If Slater retains the belt against Slaughter, he MUST defend the belt a second time later in the PPV against Marty Jannetty!)
    Slater will beat the injured Slaughter, and then Sherri will screw Jannetty for Slater to retain.


    The Good Ol' Boys vs. Los Lobos
    Assuming the big bad new team will go over

    Re: World Class Wrestling

    Stojy,

    Forgot to mention this in my last post. I LOL'd at your reason for choosing Muraco/Snuka to go over in the tag title match.

    I agree. Muraco and Snuka, especially Muraco, IMO, are the more entertaining of the teams in the match.

    Glad you're enjoying the bizarre Embry character as well. Got the inspiration for it by watching a TV show.

    Thanks for the predictions.

    (Special video aired to open the program built around the World Title Match: New Spoiler (WC) vs. Randy Savage; Sharpshooter vs. Sharpshooter Submission Match: Dynamite Kid vs. Bret Hart; and Ric Flair vs. Scott Hall.)

    (Crowd Shots/Pyro)

    (Announcers Tony Schiavone and Mark Madden welcomed viewers and ran down the card:

    WCW World Championship Match: The New Spoiler (WC) vs. Randy Savage

    Sharpshooter vs. Sharpshooter Submission Match: Bret Hart vs. Dynamite Kid

    Tables Match: Tom Zenk vs. Eric Embry

    The Good Ol' Boys vs. Los Lobos

    Then sent it to the ring.)

    Match 1 (Tru TV Championship)
    'Dirty' Dick Slater (TVC) vs. Sgt. Slaughter

    (In-ring: Craig Johnson.

    Johnson: "Wrestling fans! It is time for the Tru TV Championship match!"

    Crowd cheered.

    Johnson: "If Dick Slater retains the championship in this match, he must defend the title against Marty Jannetty later in the show!"

    Marine Corps Hymn filled the arena and out came Slaughter to a strong ovation. Slaughter was in his black, leg-length singlet with 'USA' in red, white and blue lettering on the outside of each leg and red, white and blue stars above the 'U' and below the 'A', black and green ring boots with his stripe rank on the outside of each boot and his DI hat. He was also wearing a soft neck brace.

    As Sarge was making his way down the aisle, Slater, in his ring attire and with the TV Title around his waist, came charging out of the back and came up behind Sarge and dropped Sarge with a running clothesline to the back of the neck. Sarge down face-first in the aisle. Slater reached down and pulled the soft neck brace off of Sarge and threw it into the crowd. Slater snapped Sarge up by the hair and walked Sarge down the aisle and slammed Sarge's head into the ring apron multiple times in rapid-fire fashion. Sarge went down next to the ring and was holding the back of his neck.

    Schiavone: 'Slamming Sarge's head into the ring apron like that whiplashes the neck and must have done more damage!"

    WCW officials, members of the security team and another man hastily came down to ringside. Announcers pointed out that the other man was the on-site doctor. Security moved in and kept Slater away from inflicting more damage on Sarge. The doctor knelt down on the floor next to Sarge and checked on Sarge and was talking to him. Tension filled the arena.

    Ring announcer Craig Johnson made his way over with mic in hand to where Sarge was.

    Johnson: "Doctor, is it possible to ask about the..."

    The doctor waved Johnson off and continued to check on Sarge.

    Johnson: "Dick Slater. Do you have anything to say about this?"

    Slater (smug): "Nothin'!"

    Two security members helped Sarge slowly make it to his feet. Sarge was doubled over and leaned next to the apron and was holding the back of his neck. Doctor said something to Sarge and Sarge nodded in the affirmative. Doctor checked on Sarge's neck a little more. Crowd buzzing.

    Johnson: "Doctor, may I have a word with you now?"

    Doctor turned to Johnson.

    Johnson: "Can Sgt. Slaughter wrestle tonight?"

    Doctor: "I have advised Sgt. Slaughter to go back to the hotel, take some pain medication and rest."

    Crowd booed.

    Doctor: "But he is a very determined individual. He wants to wrestle this match and he wants to do it right now."

    Boos turned to cheers.

    Doctor: "He knows the risks if he wrestles. He can make the injury worse than it already is.

    "So, it is with some hesitation on my part, that I am giving Sgt. Slaughter the OK to wrestle in this match."

    Crowd popped.

    Johnson: "You heard it! The match is gonna happen right now!"

    Slater made his way into the ring and went to his corner. Sarge slowly made his way up the ring steps and stepped into the ring and went to his corner and was still holding the back of his neck.

    Johnson: "This contest is scheduled for one fall with a 30-minute time limit and is for the Tru TV Championship!"

    Crowd cheered.

    Johnson: "This match has been sanctioned by the World Class Wrestling Championship Committee!

    "Introducing first...the challenger! He hails from Parris Island, South Carolina! Weighing in at 308 pounds...Sgt. Slaughter!"

    Crowd cheered as Sarge painfully pumped his fist in the air while holding the back of his neck with his other hand.

    Johnson: "And his opponent! Hailing from Richmond, Virginia! Weighing in at 235 pounds...he is the reigning Tru TV Champion...'Dirty' Dick Slater!"

    Crowd booed as Slater took a step out of his corner and raised his fists in the air.

    Ref took the title from Slater and held it aloft while walking around the ring for all to see. Ref then handed the belt off to Johnson.

    Ref called both men to the middle of the ring. Ref laid down the ground rules and patted each man down as Slater looked at Sarge and Sarge was wincing in pain and trying to keep his eyes on Slater, but the pain was so strong that he sometimes looked down while holding the back of his neck.

    Ref then sent each man back to his corner.

    Ref called for the bell.

    Slater came out of his corner and swung wildly at Sarge and missed and Sarge then fired away on Slater with a series of rights to the head followed by a big roundhouse right hook that sent Slater crashing to the mat. Sarge snapped Slater up and whipped Slater into the corner. Sarge moved in and nailed Slater with a series of open hand chest chops that left a big red mark on Slater's chest. Sarge whipped Slater into the opposite buckles. Sarge briefly grabbed the back of his neck and then charged over and looked to nail Slater with his Slaughter Cannon finisher but Slater moved and Sarge slammed front-first into the buckles. Sarge bounced out of the corner and turned and Slater caught Sarge with a kick to the gut that doubled over Sarge. Slater then nailed Sarge with a series of deliberate elbow smashes to the back of the neck. Sarge crashed to the mat and rolled over on his back holding the back of his neck. Slater covered Sarge. 1...2... Sarge kicked out. Crowd popped. Slater up and booted Sarge and then snapped Sarge up and slammed Sarge's head repeatedly into the top buckle. Sarge leaned front-first against the buckles with his hand on the back of his neck. Slater spun Sarge around in the corner and started choking Sarge out with his boot. Slater broke the illegal move at the ref's count of 4. Slater then repeated the move and once again broke at the count of 4. Sarge took a step out of the corner and dropped to his knees and was moving his hand between the front and back of his neck.

    Ref ordered Slater to stand back and the ref checked on Sarge. Ref talked with Sarge and Sarge nodded in the affirmative. Ref ordered the match to continue as Sarge got to his feet. Slater moved in and nailed Sarge with a couple of gut shots and then locked Sarge in a side headlock. Slater worked the headlock over, further increasing Sarge's neck pain. Slater then started jumping up and down in quick fashion with Sarge in the headlock. Sarge suddenly countered with a belly-to-back suplex. Both men down. Ref counting. Both men slowly made their way to their feet and Slater went to punch Sarge but Sarge blocked the punch try and fired away on Slater with a series of head shots followed by a big roundhouse right hook that sent Slater crashing to the mat. Sarge backed up and assumed the position and briefly grabbed the back of his neck as a shaky Slater made his way to his feet. Slater up and turned and Sarge charged over and pulverized Slater with his Slaughter Cannon finisher. Crowd popped. Slater down...but so was Slaughter. Slaughter laying on his front side and holding the back of his neck. SInce both were down the ref started counting. Sarge found the strength to crawl over and cover Slater. 1...2...thr... Slater kicked out. Crowd groaned. Both men laying there. Ref counting. Both men made it to their feet and Sarge caught Slater with a head shot. Sarge whipped Slater into the ropes and looked to catch Slater coming off with a backdrop but Slater instead dived down and blasted Sarge in the back of the neck with a double sledge. Sarge crashed to the mat holding the back of his neck. Slater briefly shook out the affects of the match and then went over and snapped up the helpless Sarge and nailed Sarge with his front Russian legsweep finisher. Sarge hit the mat and rolled over on his back. Slater covered the hurting Sarge and hooked the leg. 1...2...3! Ref called for the bell as the crowd booed.

    Ref went over and had a few words with Johnson and took the belt. Slater to his feet and the ref raised Slater's hand in victory and handed Slater the belt.

    Johnson: "In a time of 6 minutes, 4 seconds, your winner...and STILL Tru TV Champion...'Dirty' Dick Slater!"

    Crowd booed as Slater arrogantly held the title up with one hand.

    Johnson: "Because Slater retained the title against Sgt. Slaughter, Slater will be defending the Tru TV Championship a second time later tonight!"

    Slater left the ring and headed back up the aisle as the ref checked on Sarge in the ring. Sarge sitting up and once again holding the back of his neck.

    WINNER: Slater - Pinfall - Front Russian Legsweep - 6:04)

    (Announcers discussed Slater retaining the title after assaulting Sarge before the match and further injuring Sarge's neck. Lauded Sarge for putting up a tough fight before losing.

    Madden: "One thing was lost in what just went down. Where is Sherri? Why didn't she come out with Slater? Trouble in the ranks?"

    Announcers briefly discussed it and then said the World Tag Team Title match was coming up next!)

    (Ad aired for the U.S. Army.)

    (Shot of Sarge walking back up the aisle under his own power to polite applause. Sarge was still in serious pain as the ref followed him and he wasn't walking too fast.)

    (Announcers told fans to tune into 'Mayhem' this Tuesday at 9pm E/P on Tru TV for the fallout from 'Season's Beatings'.)

    Match 2 (WCW World Tag Team Championship)
    Don Muraco & 'Superfly' Jimmy Snuka (WTTC) vs. The Skyscrapers

    ('Steel Monkey' by Jethro Tull filled the arena and the Skyscrapers came out a huge reaction. Sid Vicious and Dan Spivey were dressed in black tights and black boots. They made made their way to the ring and climbed in and briefly acknowledged the crowd.

    Theme from the original 'Hawaii Five-O' played and out came Muraco and Snuka to loud boos and some cheers. Muraco was in black tights and black boots. Snuka was in his tiger-striped tights, traditional Fijian headband and flip flops. Each man had a tag team title around his waist. The pair made their way down to the ring and climbed in and briefly played to the crowd to more boos and a small but vocal amount of cheers.

    Snuka wrestled barefoot.

    Johnson: "This contest is scheduled for one fall with a 45-minute time-limit and is for the World Class Wrestling World Tag Team Championships!

    "This match has been sanctioned by the World Class Wrestling Championship Committee!

    "Introducing first, the challengers! Weighing in at a combined weight of 607 pounds, Sid Vicious and Dan Spivey...the Skyscrapers!"

    Crowd cheered as Sid and Dan talked amongst themselves in their corner.

    Johnson: "And their opponents! They are the reigning World Class Wrestling World Tag Team Champions! Weighing in at a combined weight of 518 pounds...Don Muraco and 'Superfly' Jimmy Snuka!"

    Mostly crowd boos but some cheers as the champs raised their arms victoriously in the air.

    Ref took the belts from the champs and walked around the ring holding them aloft for all to see before handing them off to Craig Johnson.

    Ref called both teams out to the middle of the ring and laid down the ground rules and patted each man down as the teams locked eyes on each other.

    Ref sent both teams back to their corners.

    Ref called for the bell.

    Muraco and Sid started the match for their teams. Muraco said something to Snuka and then turned and walked out of his corner and Sid grabbed Muraco by the throat, held Muraco there for a few seconds and then chokeslammed Muraco. Crowd popped. Sid for the cover and hooked the leg. 1..2... Snuka hit the ring and stomped Sid in the back of the head to break up the pin try. Spivey started to come into the ring but the ref went over and ordered Spivey back out on the apron. Snuka was leaving but hooked a u-turn and as Sid got to a knee, Snuka popped Sid with a headbutt to the side of the head. Sid went over against the ropes. Spivey charged into the ring and blew past the ref and went over and jumped Snuka and started pounding the hell out of Snuka. Ref went over and tried to separate the factions. Behind the ref's back, Muraco had unwrapped the white tape from around his right wrist and used it to strangle Sid. Sid on a knee and leaned against the ropes. Muraco stopped the strangling party, tossed the tape, snapped Sid up, whipped Sid into the ropes and caught Sid coming off in the belly-to-belly position and blasted Sid with a belly-to-belly overhead suplex. Snuka had fought back and he and Spivey were now battling back-and-forth in the corner. Ref was finally able to get them separated as Muraco covered Sid and hooked the leg. Ref saw it and dropped down. 1...2... Spivey had not left the ring and stomped Muraco in the back to break up the pin try. Spivey back to his corner. Snuka also back in his corner.

Snuka then went to hit Sid with a diving headbutt from the standing position and Sid rolled out of the way and Snuka crashed head-first to the mat. Both men down. Ref counting. Both men to their feet and Snuka caught Sid with a gut punch. Snuka went to whip Sid into the ropes but Sid reversed and caught Snuka coming off with a spinning spinebuster. Crowd popped. Sid up and pointed in Spivey's direction. Crowd into it. Sid tagged in Spivey. Spivey into the ring as Snuka got to his feet and Spivey fired away on Snuka with head shots. Spivey whipped Snuka into the ropes and caught Snuka coming off with a clothesline. Snuka up and Spivey blasted Snuka with another clothesline and Snuka went back down.

Sid hit the ring and stomped Muraco in the back of the head to break up the pin try. Snuka hit the ring and jumped Sid and the two started brawling with each other in the ring. Ref went over to break it up to try and restore order. Muraco got to his feet as Spivey was slowly recovering in the ring. Muraco was facing the crowd and reached into his tights and pulled out a foreign object and concealed it in his right hand. Fighting still going on between Sid and Snuka and the ref still distracted with them. Muraco had his back turned to Spivey as Spivey got up. Spivey moved in Muraco's direction and Muraco turned and went to hit Spivey with the object but Spivey blocked the punch try and fired back on Muraco with a series of blistering head shots. Muraco dropped the object. Spivey then whipped Muraco into the ropes and caught Muraco coming off with a sidewalk slam. Crowd popped.

Muraco crashed to the mat and rolled out on the apron. Spivey ignored the ref's order to stand back and Spivey went over and reached down over the top rope and pulled Muraco up and hoisted Muraco up for a suplex back into the ring. Ref was looking upward as Snuka quickly reached into the ring and clipped Spivey's ankle and Spivey crashed to the mat with Muraco on top of him for the pin. Snuka dropped down next to the apron and grabbed one of Spivey's ankles so he couldn't kick out. 1...2...3! Snuka let go of the ankle as the ref called for the bell. Most of the crowd booed but some of the fans cheered.

    Ref went over and had a few words with Johnson and took the belts.

    Snuka and Muraco in the ring together now. Spivey up and angrily glaring at the victors. Sid recovering from the low-blow on the floor. Ref went over and handed Snuka and Muraco their belts and raised both men's hands in victory. Snuka and Muraco then briefly congratulated each other.

    Johnson: "In a time of 7 minutes, 51 seconds, your winners...and STILL World Class Wrestling World Tag Team Champions...'Superfly' Jimmy Snuka and Don Muraco!"

    More boos.

    Spivey had left the ring and was helping Sid to his feet on the floor.

    As Muraco and Snuka continued to celebrate in the ring, Los Lobos, Manny Fernandez and Tito Santana, came charging to the ring in their ring attire. The pair climbed in and went right to the ref. Fernandez verbally and visually articulated to the ref what happened at the end of the match. Muraco and Snuka moved in and the ref was now surrounded by all four men. Muraco and Snuka denied any wrongdoing. The champs and Los Lobos started having words with each other. Ref trying to keep the peace. Muraco went over by the ropes, demanded the ring mic from Johnson and got it. Muraco walked back over to where Los Lobos and Snuka were.

    Muraco: "Tito and Manny. Don't you guys have anything better to do? Like steal the hubcaps off the cars out in the parking lot?"

    Fernandez went to go after Muraco but the ref stepped in between the two and Tito grabbed Fernandez. Fernandez wanted a piece of Muraco. Snuka standing next to Muraco with his hand in front of his co-title holder.

    Muraco: "We won. Bottom line."

    Muraco tossed the mic. An uneasiness filled the ring as Muraco and Snuka, each with a belt slung over their shoulder, cautiously made their way past Los Lobos. Fernandez was hot and Tito had to push Fernandez away from the champs. The champs left the ring, dropped to the floor and defiantly hoisted their belts in the air to mainly boos before heading back up the aisle. Tito still trying to cool Fernandez off in the ring.

    WINNER: Muraco & Snuka - Pinfall - Muraco pinned Spivey as Snuka held Spivey's foot down - 7:51)

    (Announcers discussed Muraco and Snuka retaining the tag titles by nefarious means and Los Lobos coming out and trying to explain what happened and getting into a heated confrontation with the champs.)

    (Announcers hyped the next Tru TV Special Event:

    WCW Presents: 'Winter Warfare' - LIVE! on Tru TV - Friday - February 2 - Tampa, FL - USF Sun Dome - 9pm E/6pm P - Tickets on sale Saturday, December 30 @ 10am EST!)

    (Announcers then sent it to the ring.)

    Match 3 (Tables Match)
    Tom Zenk vs. Eric Embry

    (Shot of tables laid around the ringside barricade.

    Announcers said that the first wrestler to put his opponent through a table wins the match.

    'Do I Have To Do This All Over Again' played and out came Zenk to a good ovation.Zenk was in a white t-shirt, blue jeans and black tennis shoes. Zenk slapped hands with fans on the way to the ring and then climbed in and briefly acknowledged the crowd.

    'Start Me Up' by The Rolling Stones played and out came Embry to a negative crowd reaction. Embry was in a sleeveless pea green t-shirt, black karate pants and black wrestling boots. Embry made his way to the ring and climbed in and briefly played to the crowd.

    Embry went over by the ropes and demanded the ring mic and got it.

    Embry: "Tom Zenk. I hope you're prepared for tonight's Eric Embry 'Experience'. Because, mark my words, it's gonna be an experience you will never forget."

    Crowd booed.

    Slater: "I did cause his neck injury, Hudson! I've never denied it! It still brings a great smile to my face when I think about the top of Sarge's skull crashing onto that chair when I nailed him with a piledriver! Hell, I can still remember the sound his head made! Hahaha!"

    Hudson: "Really something to be proud of, Slater!"

    Slater: "Did you notice my strategy for the match?! It was to target the neck and I must say I did a masterful job of it!"

    Hudson: "You will be defending the Tru TV Championship for the second time later tonight, this time against against Marty Jannetty.

    "Do you have a strategy for this match as well?"

    Slater: "Sure do! Avoid getting hit by Jannetty's superkick and I win the match! Sounds like a winning strategy to me!"

    Hudson: "One more thing: we noticed that your manager Sherri Martel didn't come out with you for your match with Slaughter earlier tonight. Are you two finished as a pairing?"

    Slater became somber and bowed his head and rubbed his forehead with his hand. Slater then looked up with a sad look on his face.

    Slater (sadly): "I've tried to call Sherri for the last few days. Have also e-mailed and texted her. I've heard nothing.

    "Sherri, if you're out there watching this, I want you to know that you're still the only lady for me. Please get in contact with me, babe. I can't tell you how much I miss you. My soul is empty, well, almost empty, without you. Come back to me, Sherri. Just come on back, gal."

    Hudson: "Last week on 'Mayhem', Marty Jannetty went to superkick you and you pulled Sherri in front of you to take the blow. You then took off and left her laid out in the ring. And yet you think she'll take you back?! Jeez!"

    Slater (somber): "What happened last week was an accident, Hudson."

    Hudson: "An accident?!"

    Slater (somber): "Yes, an unfortunate accident. Could happen to anybody."

    Hudson rolled his eyes.

    Slater (somber): "Thanks for bringing up this sensitive subject just as I'm preparing to go out later tonight to defend the Tru TV Championship a second time.

    "If I lose this match, Hudson, it's on your head."

    Slater slowly walked out of the picture as Hudson looked on and shook his head in disbelief.)

    Into the picture ran a man who was standing with his side turned to the camera. He was running in place. He turned to face the camera and was still running in place.

    But it's what he was wearing...

    The man was in a blue football helmet with white facemask with the letters 'TT' (think the Texas Tech helmet logo) overlaid on one another in white lettering on both sides of the helmet. He was wearing a letterman's jacket with a blue body and white sleeves. On the right front side of the jacket was a football and on the left front side were the same 'TT' initials that were on the helmet. He was wearing white football pants with two blue stripes running down the outside of each leg. He wore blue cleats with white trim.

    After briefly running in place, the man stopped and spoke while still wearing his helmet.

    Man: "I'm Terry Taylor! And I'm the world's greatest athlete!

    "I'm in a football mood today! But I'm great, not good, great at all sports! I was a star in them all!

    "I could have been a Pro Bowl NFL player or an All-Star pro baseball player! I could have been a standout point guard in the NBA! Or, I could have been a top notch goalie in the NHL! I could have been the next big thing on the PGA Tour!

    "Even though I was great at all these sports, I chose to concentrate on my first love...wrestling!

    "I am coming to WCW to show the world that I'm not just the world's greatest athlete...but also the world's greatest wrestler! You've got a lot of really good wrestlers out there! But, they don't have my overall athletic prowess! That's the difference maker! And you'll see that in WCW! I'm so good at every sport I've ever played that I just can't be stopped on the field; on the hardwood; on the ice; or in the wrestling ring!

    "So, all you WCW wrestlers need to get ready! The world's greatest athlete Terry Taylor is coming to WCW!"

    Taylor then started running in place again as the video faded to black.)

New Spoiler came up behind Savage and bashed Savage with a forearm smash to the back . Savage spun around and New Spoiler caught Savage with a head shot. New Spoiler suplexed Savage and then backed into the ropes and came off with a fist drop to the head that connected. Savage rolled over on his side grabbing his head. New Spoiler rolled Savage over on his back and went for the cover. 1... Savage kicked out. New Spoiler snapped Savage up, whipped Savage into the ropes and caught Savage coming off with a dropkick. Savage crashed to the mat. New Spoiler snapped Savage up and attempted to hoist Savage up for a piledriver but Savage twice blocked the move and backdropped New Spoiler over the top rope and crashing to the floor as the crowd popped.

    Jimmy Hart came over and checked on New Spoiler. Savage briefly shook out the affects of the match while in the ring. Ref counting. Savage then went over and mounted the top buckle as New Spoiler made his way to his feet. Jimmy saw Savage on the top buckle and bailed. Savage came off the top buckle and nailed New Spoiler with a double axe handle to the top of the head. New Spoiler crashed to the floor. Jimmy tried to sneak over and hit Savage with his megaphone but Savage turned at the last second and saw Jimmy. Jimmy started to back off and beg off as Savage slowly stalked Jimmy. New Spoiler recovered on the floor and came up behind Savage and blasted Savage with double sledge to the back. Savage stumbled forward and went down. Ref counting the 20-count. New Spoiler stomped on the downed Savage, snapped Savage up and whipped Savage at the announcer's table. Savage crashed into the table and went down. New Spoiler rolled in and out of the ring to break the count. Savage on his hands and knees. New Spoiler went over and snapped Savage up and attempted to slam Savage's head into the announcer's table but Savage got his hands on the table and blocked the move. New Spoiler tried the same move again with the same result. Ref counting. Savage caught New Spoiler with a couple of elbows to the ribs and freed himself from New Spoiler's grasp. Savage then grabbed New Spoiller and slammed New Spoiler's head into the announcer's table multiple times in rapid-fire fashion. New Spoiler laid face down on the table. Savage rolled in and out of the ring to break the ref's 20-count. New Spoiler started to peel himself off the table when Savage came over and grabbed the champ and went to whip the champ into the ring post but New Spoiler reversed and sent Savage crashing shoulder-first into the post. Savage staggered off holding his shoulder. Ref counting. New Spoiler stalked Savage and grabbed Savage from behind and slammed Savage's head into the ring apron three times. Savage down to a knee. New Spoiler caught Savage with a couple of deliberate head shots, snapped Savage up and threw Savage back into the ring. New Spoiler followed Savage in as Savage was getting up bent over and New Spoiler caught Savage with a running high knee to the chest. Savage crashed to the mat. New Spoiler went out on the apron and mounted the top buckle as Savage slowly made it to his feet. Savage turned and New Spoiler tried to out-Savage Savage by coming off with a double axe handle to the top of the head attempt but Savage stunned New Spoiler with a punch to the gut. Savage then laid into New Spoiler with a series of uncontested jabs that staggered the champ. Savage then bodyslammed New Spoiler and popped New Spoiler with a jumping knee drop to the chest. Savage went out on the apron and mounted the top buckle as New Spoiler slowly got to his feet. New Spoiler turned and Savage came off with a double axe handle to the top of head that sent New Spoiler crashing to the mat. Savage for the cover and hooked the leg. 1...2... New Spoiler kicked out.

    Savage snapped up New Spoiler and whipped New Spoiler into the corner. Savage charged in on New Spoiler and New Spoiler got his foot up and Savage crashed face-first into it and staggered back and New Spoiler came out of the corner and dropped Savage with a clothesline. Savage down and New Spoiler quickly regained his bearings. Savage started getting up and New Spoiler moved in and popped Savage with some head shots and then dropped Savage with a discus punch. Savage down and hurting. New Spoiler then locked Savage in the brutal bow and arrow submission hold. Savage in serious pain. Crowd buzzing. Savage refusing to submit. New Spoiler cinched up on the excrutiating hold but Savage refused to concede. New Spoiler held Savage in the hold a few more seconds before releasing Savage. Savage down and limp on the mat. New Spoiler stomped Savage in the head, snapped Savage up and whipped Savage into the ropes and caught Savage coming off with a dropkick. Savage crashed to the mat and rolled out on the ring apron. New Spoiler went over and pushed Savage off the ring apron with his foot. Savage crashed to the floor. New Spoiler ignored the ref and dropped to the floor. Savage in a bad way. New Spoiler snapped Savage up and walked Savage over by the steel ring steps and slammed Savage's head three times into the top step. Savage crumpled to the floor. Ref counting. New Spoiler climbed into the ring to break the 20-count. New Spoiler climbed out on the apron as a now bleeding Savage made it to his feet. Savage up and staggered a couple of steps and New Spoiler came off the apron with a double axe handle to the top of the head. Savage crashed to the floor. Ref counting. New Spoiler snapped Savage up and caught Savage in a side headlock. New Spoiler tried to run the top of Savage's head into the post but Savage shoved New Spoiler off and New Spoiler's head slammed into the post. Crowd popped. New Spoiler stumbled off and Savage quickly regained his bearings and charged up behind New Spoiler and drove a running high knee into New Spoiler's back. New Spoiler stumbled forward and crashed front-first into the ringside barricade. New Spoiler leaned over the barricade. Savage rolled in and out of the ring to break the 20-count as New Spoiler extricated himself from the barricade. New Spoiler turned and Savage nailed New Spoiler with a deliberate series of jabs. The last spun New Spoiler around and New Spoiler staggered away from Savage. Ref counting. Savage came up behind New Spoiler attempted to rip off the mask. Crowd cheered as, after a brief struggle, Savage got the mask up over New Spoiler's mouth. New Spoiler fighting to keep the mask on but Savage fighting like a wild animal to pull it off. New Spoiler maneuvered around and Savage's back was towards the ring and New Spoiler backed Savage hard into the ring apron and Savage lost his grip on New Spoiler's mask. Savage leaned back against the apron as New Spoiler pulled his mask back down. New Spoiler then laid into Savage with a trio of gut punches and then pulled Savage away from the apron and threw Savage back into the ring. New Spoiler followed him in.

    Savage started getting up as New Spoiler moved in and Savage swung at New Spoiler and missed. New Spoiler caught Savage with a kick to the gut followed by a Saito suplex. New Spoiler for the cover and hooked the leg. 1...2...thr... Savage kicked out. Crowd cheered. New Spoiler snapped Savage up and whipped Savage into the ropes and looked to catch Savage coming off with a backdrop but Savage caught New Spoiler with a kick to the chest. New Spoiler shot up and stumbled back. Savage grabbed New Spoiler, whipped New Spoiler into the ropes and caught New Spoiler coming off with a scoop slam. Both men down. Ref counting. Both men to their knees and they started exchanging punches. The two men rose to their feet still exchanging punches. Savage gained the upper hand and grabbed New Spoiler, ran New Spoiler over to the ropes and popped New Spoiler with a hangman on the top rope. New Spoiler snapped back and crashed to the mat. Savage quickly back into the ring and covered New Spoiler and hooked the leg. 1...2...thr... New Spoiler kicked out. Crowd groaned. Both men up and New Spoiler caught Savage with a head shot that stunned Savage. New Spoiler then went to kick Savage but Savage grabbed New Spoiler's foot, spun New Spoiler around and started to hoist New Spoiler up for an atomic drop but New Spoiler flipped out of Savage's grasp and landed on his feet behind Savage. Savage started to turn and New Spoiler grabbed Savage's wrist and blasted Savage with a short-arm clothesline. Savage crashed to the mat. New Spoiler circled around behind Savage and raised his gloved right hand. Crowd buzzing. Savage slowly and shakily made it to his feet and turned and New Spoiler moved in and locked Savage in his Iron Claw finisher. Jimmy Hart ecstatic at ringside. Savage in serious trouble. New Spoiler had Savage trapped in his vice-like grip. Savage fighting not to give in. Savage tried to escape New Spoiler's grasp but it was futile. After fighting to resist the affects of the Iron Claw, Savage dropped to his knees locked in the hold. Savage looked like he was fading. Savage kept fighting, but eventually the back of both his hands weakly hit the mat. Ref grabbed Savage's left arm and held it up and then let it go and it fell feebly to the mat. Ref raised Savage's arm in the air a second time, let it go and once again the arm futilely hit the mat. New Spoiler's grip on the hold was not slipping in the least. Jimmy Hart starting to celebrate at ringside. Ref raised Savage's arm in the air a third time, held it for a second and then let it go. The arm started to drop, but Savage was able to find the strength to keep it from hitting the mat a third time. Crowd popped. Jimmy suddenly not happy at ringside. Savage slowly raised both his fists and started pumping them. New Spoiler relentless in not letting go of the hold. Savage made it to a knee. Savage pumping his fists and fighting through the pain of the claw. Savage started to rise to his feet and New Spoiler was stunned. New Spoiler looked over briefly at Jimmy who was now in a panic at ringside. Savage up and still locked in the hold. New Spoiler got up on his tiptoes to add pressure to the hold. Savage rapidly breathing in and out. New Spoiler throwing everything into the hold. Crowd buzzing. Savage then made a fist and was able to pop New Spoiler with a jab. The blow seemed to rattle New Spoiler. Savage then hit New Spoiler with a second jab. New Spoiler's grasp appeared to get shaky. Crowd feeling it. New Spoiler had a snarl on his face and his teeth were gritted so tight it looked like they might shatter as he desperately looked to regain his earlier dominance with the claw. Savage then caught New Spoiler with a third jab and New Spoiler lost his grip on the hold. New Spoiler staggered. Savage stumbled back and fell against the ropes holding his head.

    Both men shaking out the affects of the match. New Spoiler moved in on Savage and Savage bounded off the ropes and caught New Spoiler with a lariat. New Spoiler crashed to the mat. The stunned champ made it to his feet and Savage moved in and once again tried to rip New Spoiler's Mask off. Another great struggle ensued between the two combatants. New Spoiler fighting with everything had to protect his true identity. New Spoiler then drove Savage backwards and Savage crashed into the ref and the ref fell through the top and middle rope and crashed to the floor. Savage lost his grip on the mask. New Spoiler quickly adjusted the mask and moved in and caught Savage with a gut punch. New Spoiler went to whip Savage into the ropes but Savage reversed and drilled New Spoiler coming off with a back elbow to the chest. New Spoiler crashed to the mat. New Spoiler up and lunged at Savage but Savage evaded New Spoiler and laid into New Spoiler with a series of jabs. New Spoiler on wobbly legs. Savage then reared back and blasted New Spoiler with a right cross that sent New Spoiler spinning around and crashing to the mat. Savage snapped New Spoiler up and bodyslammed New Spoiler. Jimmy now beyond freaking out at ringside. Savage went out on the apron and mounted the top buckle, raised his arms in the air and came off with his big elbow from the top rope finisher that connected. Crowd erupted. Savage covered New Spoiler and hooked the leg. Crowd going crazy as there was no ref. A frustrated Savage had New Spoiler pinned for several seconds before letting go. New Spoiler laid out in the ring. Savage went over and looked out at the ref who was down on the floor.

    Steve O, in street clothes, came out and charged down the aisle and hit the ring. Savage turned just as O charged over and swung at Savage and Savage ducked the punch try and fired back on O with a series of jabs that drove O next to the ropes. Savage backed up and charged in and nailed the stunned O with a running clothesline that sent O hurtling over the top rope and crashing to the floor as the crowd roared. As Savage looked down at O, Bubba Rogers, still in his ring attire, came charging down the aisle, hit the ring and jumped Savage from behind. Rogers pounded on Savage and Savage turned around and Rogers blasted Savage with a series of stiff uppercuts. Rogers then went to whip Savage into the ropes but Savage reversed and caught Rogers coming off with a kick to the gut that doubled over Rogers. Savage hoisted Rogers up and pulverized Rogers with a piledriver. Rogers down. Crowd roar now off the charts. New Spoiler stirring on the mat and the ref stirring on the floor. Rogers rolled out of the ring apron. JImmy Hart, having visions of his man becoming the ex-World Champion, removed his sunglasses, climbed into the ring and came up behind Savage and hit Savage across the upper back with his megaphone. Savage just turned around, pointed at Jimmy and said: 'You!' Jimmy started backing up and begging off and Jimmy backed himself into the corner as Savage stalked him. Jimmy begging for Savage not to do anything. Savage ripped the megaphone out of Jimmy's hands and raised it over his head like he was going to hit Jimmy with his own property. Jimmy recoiled like a sissy in the corner. Savage then lowered the megaphone and Jimmy started to relax and was thanking Savage vociferously for not hitting him with the weapon. Then, you guessed it, Savage raised the megaphone up and brought it crashing down over Jimmy's head. Jimmy crumpled to the mat in the corner. Crowd going nuts. Savage tossed the megaphone out of the ring.

    New Spoiler made it to his feet just as Savage turned around. New Spoiler blasted Savage with a double knee facebreaker. Savage crashed to the mat holding his face. Ref started to come around on the floor. New Spoiler raised his gloved right hand and waited for Savage to get to his feet. Savage slowly and unsteadily made it to his feet and turned and the New Spoiler locked Savage in his Iron Claw finisher a second time. Savage again put up a fight early in the hold. But the match had taken its toll and Savage dropped to his knees on the mat. New Spoiler firmly in control now. Savage resisting but it was now starting to seem futile. Ref made his way back into the ring and appeared a little shaky. Savage melted to the mat and was laid out in the claw. Savage not moving much. Ref raised Savage's arm and let it go and it dropped harmlessly to the mat. Ref raised Savage's arm a second time, let it go and once again it fell harmlessly to the mat. Ref signaled to the crowd that was two. Ref then raised Savage's arm a third time, held it for a second, let it go and Savage's arm fell weakly to the mat. Ref up and called for the bell as the crowd booed.

    Still somewhat groggy ref made his way over by the ropes and had a few words with Johnson and took the belt. New Spoiler still had the hold locked in on Savage. Ref came over and ordered New Spoiler to release the hold on Savage. New Spoiler held the hold on a few seconds longer before letting go. New Spoiler got up and glared at the ref. Ref handed New Spoiler the belt and raised New Spoiler's hand in victory.

    Johnson: "In a time of 30 minutes, 11 seconds, your winner...and STILL World Class Wrestling World Heavyweight Champion...the New Spoiler!"

    Boos filled the arena.

    In a surreal scene, New Spoiler stood in the ring with the belt slung over his left shoulder and his gloved right fist in the air as Savage, Jimmy, Rogers and O were all laid out in or around the ring as the announcers implored fans to tune into 'Mayhem' on Tuesday for the fallout from 'Season's Beatings' as the program faded to black.

    WINNER: New Spoiler - Submission - Iron Claw - 30:11)

    END PROGRAM

    Re: World Class Wrestling

    Irwin/Big Bubba seems like a really random match to be on the pre show, as I can’t really remember them having any interactions previously. I guess it’s a solid win for Irwin though.

    Dick Slater attacking Slaughter from behind was awesome. Such a dickish move but just a smart way for him to even the odds, I really enjoyed it. Slater doing it on his own based on the attack makes perfect sense, and Slaugther doesn’t really lose face because of the pre match attack. I still think Sherri not here tonight is a swerve and she’ll help Slater beat Marty later. A great opening.

    My predictions weren’t necessarily a crack on The Skyscrapers but more of a compliment at how much I’ve enjoyed Muraco and Snuka. One thing I’ve noticed with your match writing is that it could use a little bit of work. Not in terms of the actions in the ring but there isn’t a lot of description in regards to crowd reaction and facial expressions and that sort of stuff. The actual moves and action that is occurring in the matches itself is completely fine. Anyway, back onto the booking, another dusty finish here for the champions to go over. I’m happy with the result.

    The interaction between the champs and Los Lobos makes me think we could get a potential feud there… But it wouldn’t make complete sense to me considering I’m expecting Lobos to lose tonight. Either way, it was still a good little tension builder. Although I guess I’m still not really sure why Lobos decided to come out.

    Tom Zenk looks beastly here and honestly this was one that surprised me. I thought Embry would take the win, but I guess coming off a title shot not that long ago, Zenk is still kind of a big deal. I enjoyed the action quite a bit, especially the fact that they used the table so often. The Gourdbuster through the table would have been a brutal spot as well. My favourite match of the night so far, good stuff.

    Well, safe to say this tag team match shocked me. I thought the Good Ol’ Boys would be coming in and getting the win fresh off their awesome promo work… Instead, they take the loss, even after the champions interfered to help them. This does quite a bit of harm for them as far as I’m concerned. A good win for Los Lobos, who now put themselves in prime position for a title shot.

    Another really good interview here from Dick Slater. Went over being proud for his win, confident about Jannetty and sad about Sherri. Really good stuff, and the idea of blaming Hudson for his loss was great as well.

    Flair/Hall time and this one didn’t exactly go as I expected. I did expect the heels to win but I didn’t expect it to happen this way. I thought they would get a dominant victory but instead they just scrape over the line, although I guess a Hall win over Flair is still a big deal. The action of Orndorff and Zybysko on the outside was a very entertaining feature throughout. The ending with Orndorff costing Flair came as a shock to me, however I think we need a further explanation. This is the first ending that I question because it just came so out of nowhere, and Orndorff seemingly attacked Hall for what felt like no reason. I didn’t dig this however the future feud of Flair/Orndorff should be fun.

    Terry Taylor… Cool. Such an old school gimmick though, love it.

    I enjoyed Jannetty bringing out Sherri in his corner, continuing with what I predicted in terms of the swerve… And there it is. I also enjoyed the part where you called Jannetty an idiot face haha. Still, match went along pretty well, and the Sherri interference was great. Man, Slater is going to be unbearable after this, whilst neither of the faces lose anything for losing to him. Slater is really well booked tonight.

    Hart/Dynamite Kid was always going to go close to match of the night, and without reading the main event as of yet, it actually lived up to the expectations. Both men shedding blood and having periods of domination made this a really good match. The ending with Bret finally making Kid submit to the Sharpshooter and it was just fitting, you couldn’t have Bret job in his own hold in his first big match appearance. A good win for him and the ending with Kid refusing the handshake basically completes his heel turn.

    New Spoiler continues his reign of dominance but without looking all that dominant. Instead, Savage beats up his entire crew before finally getting caught. A fun main event however still just behind Bret/Kid as the best match of the card for me. My only issue was I felt like the build up to the match focused on Savage unmasking Spoiler but you didn’t play on it enough throughout the match. That is my real big issue, the action didn’t match the build up, but outside of that, still felt like the right man went over.

    A pretty good super card, I really enjoyed it. I thought the matches were all booked really well, outside of one or two things. Match writing was okay, and segments throughout were all pretty fun. I look forward to seeing what comes next from here, I still enjoy the old school feel this thread gives me. Good stuff.

    Re: World Class Wrestling

    Some thoughts on what's going on. Bare with me though as my knowledge of some of the guys is not up to scratch.

    First off I enjoyed Dick Slater being a complete bad ass tonight. With the odds stacked against him he planned to perfection a route to keeping his title. Sherri turning on Jannetty was a little obvious from the outset but I was surprised after she hit Slater first. A complete swerve.

    As for the tag titles I agree with Stojy that The Good Ol' Boys looked a little weak after failing to get the win despite help from the tag champs. If Los Lobos were going to win then I would have preferred to see them win clean over Good Ol' Boys and maybe have the tag title match later in the night so they could come out and interact with Muraco/Snuka. I think trying to have the champs screw Los Lobos has had a negative knock on effect on The Good Ol' Boys. Lobos/Champs has a lot of story around it already so should definitely be interesting to see.

    Flair and Hall are two of my favourite wrestlers and I'd be keen to have seen this match in real life with both men in their primes. Non finish means this will continue which I can get behind.

    Bret Hart came in and Dynamite put him over. I think Hart is a definite World Championship contender in the future.

    With Zenk passing this week it was great to see him get the win. Despite Embry looking strong of late a Tables Match defeat doesn't really hurt him and can continue the feud I hope.

    Finally Savage had no chance trying to hold onto the title with The First Family around. The mask is key and I'm hoping maybe we get a mask versus title match further down the line with whoever dethrones New Spoiler, because it is really annoying me that I don't know who he is.

    A little difficult to get into because I like to know time periods when reading projects but the effort put in is great. I will continue to follow and hopefully things will continue to be as good as they are. Kudos too for making me research some dudes.

    Stojy and Syk,

    Will respond to your comments within the next couple of days. Thanks for reading the show and I'm glad you enjoyed it.

    Syk, didn't know Tom Zenk died. Sad to hear it. Never a major star per se. But he was a solid hand in the ring.

    Stojy,

    Thanks for your thoughts on the show.

    I just threw threw the match on the pre-show together. It was just to get Scott Irwin over since I'm re-igniting his feud with brother 'Million Dollar' Bill. Losing all those weeks in October and November meant having to put some things on the back-burner for a period of time.

    Your predictions for Slater's two matches were uncanny.

    I'll admit that my match layout can be video gamey in presentation. Basically a move by move recount with a few small details thrown in to try and enhance the match for the reader.

    Appreciate the kind words about the work I've done with Muraco and Snuka. I actually did a similar version of Muraco in another fantasy promotion I did years ago and decided to resurrect him.

    Had to have the screw job finish in the tag title match to get to Los Lobos coming out.

    This one caught me by surprise here. You thought the tables match was the best of the first three matches on the show and I thought it was the weakest of the eight matches I laid out for the show. Just goes to show it's all in the eye of the beholder. Just not much you can really do in a tables match IMO except some teases, using the table as a weapon and finally one guy going through the table.

    Embry-Zenk will continue and Embry is going to get more bizarre. Have a match in mind for these two that I can guarantee has never been done in fantasy booking or in real life.

    Gotta disagree with you on the Good Ol' Boys losing to Los Lobos. I had Windham go over Santana in their singles match on the last 'Mayhem' before the PPV since I knew they were losing the tag match. The GOB will bounce back strong in the booking department.

    The whole Flair/Orndorff vs. Hall/Zbysko situation will become crystal clear in the weeks to come. Just gotta let the build continue before the dam bursts.

    Like I said earlier, you called the Slater-Jannetty finish days before I even posted the show.

    Did you notice where I wrote that Sherri came to the ring carrying a small purse? That was my tip-off to more seasoned BTB readers what the finish of the match was gonna be.

    Kid-Bret just felt like it needed crimson for dramatic purposes. Glad you really enjoyed the match and the program between the two will continue. I've got a definite time and place for the finish of the feud. But I'm sure as hell not gonna give it away!

    I realize it was one of the two main selling points of the main event, but I believe the number of times a wrestler should be trying to rip the mask off their opponent during a match is a judgment call. I think Savage tried to unmask New Spoiler four(?) times during the 30-minute match. Could the match have used two or three more attempts? Yeah, I think you could argue that. But when does the situation become overkill? I admit I went the conservative route here because I didn't want to risk running the unmasking tries into overkill territory.

    Had Savage take out Jimmy Hart and the rest of the First Family to keep Savage strong since he was gonna lose.

    Terry Taylor's gonna be my version of 'Mr. Perfect'. Only he'll be known as the 'World's Greatest Athlete'.

    The old school vibe is what I'm largely trying to get across.

    Thanks again for your comments, Stojy. Glad you enjoyed the show overall.

    And continued success with ECW.

    First off I enjoyed Dick Slater being a complete bad ass tonight. With the odds stacked against him he planned to perfection a route to keeping his title. Sherri turning on Jannetty was a little obvious from the outset but I was surprised after she hit Slater first. A complete swerve.

    As for the tag titles I agree with Stojy that The Good Ol' Boys looked a little weak after failing to get the win despite help from the tag champs. If Los Lobos were going to win then I would have preferred to see them win clean over Good Ol' Boys and maybe have the tag title match later in the night so they could come out and interact with Muraco/Snuka. I think trying to have the champs screw Los Lobos has had a negative knock on effect on The Good Ol' Boys. Lobos/Champs has a lot of story around it already so should definitely be interesting to see.

    Flair and Hall are two of my favourite wrestlers and I'd be keen to have seen this match in real life with both men in their primes. Non finish means this will continue which I can get behind.

    Bret Hart came in and Dynamite put him over. I think Hart is a definite World Championship contender in the future.

    With Zenk passing this week it was great to see him get the win. Despite Embry looking strong of late a Tables Match defeat doesn't really hurt him and can continue the feud I hope.

    Finally Savage had no chance trying to hold onto the title with The First Family around. The mask is key and I'm hoping maybe we get a mask versus title match further down the line with whoever dethrones New Spoiler, because it is really annoying me that I don't know who he is.

    A little difficult to get into because I like to know time periods when reading projects but the effort put in is great. I will continue to follow and hopefully things will continue to be as good as they are. Kudos too for making me research some dudes.
    Sykotic,

    Thanks for your comments.

    First off, glad I could be of service to you checking out some of the old timers I use in my fantasy league.

    The idea for the whole Slater thing came more out of desperation than anything else. I lost five weeks worth of TV and I was scrambling to come up with ideas/angles that had to be rolled out in four TV shows over four weeks to fill out the card. It was originally going to just be Slater vs. Slaughter. But then the whole Jannetty thing just fell into my lap because of the way I had Slater defeat Jannetty on ep. 130 of 'Mayhem'. Glad you liked the whole scenario and how it played out.

    Again, have to disagree about the Good Ol' Boys. The win was much bigger at this time for Los Lobos IMO as the champs need some fresh blood to face.

    As I said to Stojy, the whole thing with Orndorff-Flair and Hall-Zbysko will be clarified in the weeks to come. Hope it grabs the reader's attention and holds it.

    Bret as a World Title challenger is a given. Only question is when will the trigger be pulled on the program?

    Zenk-Embry has got more life left in it. The program, thanks to Embry, hasn't gone totally off the deep end...yet!

    Can't really tip my hand on New Spoiler plans, but he is/was a very real pro wrestler. Hard to really give this match the build-up it deserved as I only had four weeks of TV to put together the entire show. I think an extra four weeks of TV would have helped it out. I also think the same for the Kid-Bret match.

    Thanks again for the comments, Sykotic. Always nice to read reader input.

    Re: World Class Wrestling

    Although I still disagree with you regarding the booking of the Good Ol Boys (tag team match on PPV completely outweighs singles win on a show with little to no importance as compared to PPV), I do look forward to seeing how you book them moving forward. Especially now Los Lobos will be the ones going for the gold.

    Dick Slater has been a highlight throughout and I expect that to continue, whilst I have a keen eye for the Flair/Orndorff situation.

    I'll definitely be reading this show, just probably not on Christmas Eve haha.

    WCW MAYHEM - EP. 134 - LAS VEGAS, NV - ORLEANS ARENA - 12-12-17 (Live)

    (Pics aired to open the show of highlights from the New Spoiler (WC) vs. Randy Savagae World Title match and the Bret Hart vs. Dynamite Kid Sharpshooter vs. Sharpshooter Submission match from the 'Season's Beatings' PPV.)

    (Show Intro)

    (Crowd Shots/Pyro)

    (Music-only version of 'The Crunge' played and out came Tru TV Champ Dick Slater and manager Sherri Martel to strong boos. Both were in street clothes and each had a mic. The pair made their way to the ring and Sherri opened the ropes to allow Slater to step into the ring and Sherri followed him. Slater had the TV Title slung over his shoulder.

    Pair soaked in the boos for a moment.

    Sherri: "Ladies and gentlemen! It is my great pleasure to present to you the man who successfully defended the Tru TV Championship not once...but twice...at 'Season's Beatings'...Dick Slater!"

    More boos as Slater and Sherri embraced and looked deep into each other's eyes. The two let go of each other and Sherri raised Slater's hand in victory as the boos grew even louder.

    Slater: "Before I go any further, let me just say that I love Las Vegas."

    Mixed crowd reaction to Slater's remarks.

    Slater: "I love it because it's a town of losers that I can walk all over because I'm a big winner!

    "Tonight, as Sherri and I drove to the arena, we passed a guy on a street corner with a sign that said he'd gambled away all his money and needed some help. Well, being the kind and generous souls that we are, Sherri and I told the guy we'd love to help him out a little and take him to a buffet. Not just any buffet. But a top of the line Vegas buffet, daddy.

    "The guy got all excited and emotional and said: 'You guys would do that for me?' And we both said we would love to do it. The guy started crying. It was really a touching moment."

    Sherri: "Very touching, babe. Yes."

    Slater: "Now, there was no way I was letting a homeless, stinking gambling addict into my rental. We told the guy to follow us...and he did!"

    Sherri: "He did do that! Have to say I couldn't believe it...but homeless guy did it!"

    Slater: "We pulled down an alley and got out of the car and homeless gambling junkie caught up to us and said: 'What's this?' I told him it was the buffet. He said: 'I don't see a buffet around here. You said it was gonna be top of the line.' I told him that for him, this buffet was top of the line.' We were standing in front of a garbage dumpster. Hahaha!"

    Sherri joined in the laughter as the crowd booed.

    Slater: "As I shattered yet another dream for that piece of vile smelling crap, I then gave him one more thing."

    Sherri: "Let me tell 'em what it was, please!"

    Slater: "Take it away, doll."

    Sherri: "He kicked the homeless gambling addict right square in the nuts! Hahahaha!"

    Slater joined Sherri in the laughter to more boos.

    Slater: "He was laying on the ground in front of Chez Crapola when we left him. I hope he enjoyed that three-quarters eaten hamburger he probably found in there."

    Sherri: "Do you think he had to pick bugs off the burger?"

    Slater: "That was probably the least of his worries!"

    Sherri and Martel laughed again.

    Slater: "But enough about the homeless. No one cares about them, anyway.

    "As you can see I still have the Tru TV Championship. Sunday at 'Season's Beatings', I showed everyone what a brilliant match strategist I am.

    "I told you that the neck injury I inflicted on Sgt. Slaughter a few weeks ago would come back to haunt him in our match and it did. With laser-like precision I worked over his neck and it was his undoing.

    "Then, you may remember where I challenged Marty Jannetty to step into the ring and superkick me and the rube fell for it hook, line and sinker. He 'accidentally' (Slater made the air quotes with his fingers) kicked Sherri instead of me. Then, Sherri masterfully played on Jannetty's chivalry, look it up, and Jannetty bought that, too.

    "How's the jaw doin', Sherri?"

    Sherri: "Better. It still hurts quite a bit as his kick packed quite a wallop. Still have trouble eating solid foods. Jaw still feels somewhat misaligned. But it was worth it to make sure my man retained the TV title."

    Slater: "Damn right it was worth it. It was for me."

    Crowd booed.

    Slater: "I admit it. I came out here to gloat about my great accomplishments at 'Season's Beatings'!

    "They say pro wrestling is human chess. Well, I checkmated both Slaughter and Jannetty! I lured them right into my trap and pounced and for them there was no escape!

    "The biggest part of winning a wrestling match is up here!"

    Slater pointed at his head.

    Slater: "I outsmarted both of those hockey pucks!

    "Slaughter and Jannetty, ha, are seasoned veterans! And they still couldn't see..."

    Tony Garea of the championship committee came out on the entrance stage in a suit with mic in hand.

    Garea: "Excuse me, Dick. Over here."

    Slater and Sherri turned and looked over and saw Garea.

    Sherri: "Garea! Did you come out here to invite us to dinner on your dime at the Outback Steakhouse to celebrate Dick's great feat on Sunday?!"

    Garea: "Not quite...

    "I have something else in mind for ol' Dick."

    Slater: "Not a very respectful way to refer to a champion, Captain Aussie Chips!"

    Garea: "Maybe not.

    "But, in light of your great achievement on Sunday, the championship committee has decided that you will be defending the Tru TV Championship tonight in our main event."

    Crowd cheered. Slater and Sherri looking at Garea. Sherri seemed shocked.

    Sherri: "You're gonna make Dick defend the TV Title tonight after what he went through two nights ago?! How dare..."

    Garea: "Guess you two weren't brilliant enough to see this coming.

    "Tonight, Dick Slater will be defending the Tru TV Championship in a re-match."

    Slater: "A re-match?

    "I know it's not Slaughter, then. I screwed his neck up even more in our match. Must be Jannetty one more time. Sounds good to me..."

    Garea: "It's not Marty Jannetty.

    "Dick Slater, you're defending the Tru TV Championship against the man you defeated for the title...Scott Irwin!"

    Decent amount of cheers. Slater just looked at Garea as Sherri fumed.

    Garea: "See you two later tonight. Good luck."

    Garea turned and headed to the back as Sherri and Slater talked off-mic in the ring.)

    (Announcers Tony Schiavone briefly discussed the main event being made for later tonight and welcomed viewers to the post-'Season's Beatings' edition of 'Mayhem'. They then ran down the program: Paul Orndorff and Ric Flair make an appearance later tonight after the mind-boggling finish of Flair vs. Scott Hall at 'Season's Beatings'; a special announcement concerning tickets and travel packages for the 'Scars N Stripes' PPV; and more! Said Sid Vicious battles Mr. Anderson after the break.)

    (Announcers intro'd video recorded on Monday, December 11th, of an interview Scott Hudson did with a doctor who examined Sgt. Slaughter after Slaughter's match with Dick Slater at 'Season's Beatings'.

    VIDEO:

    Scott Hudson was standing on a sun-drenched walkway out in front of a hospital with mic in hand.

    Hudson: "This is Scott Hudson on location in San Diego. We are taping this the day after 'Season's Beatings'. I'm with the doctor who checked on Sgt. Slaughter last night after his match with Dick Slater at 'Season's Beatings'.

    "First of all , doctor, can you tell the folks watching at home your name?"

    Doctor: "Welby. Marcus Welby."

    Welby was in a suit.

    Hudson: "Doctor Welby, thank you for taking the time to speak with us."

    Welby nodded.

    Hudson: "What did your examination reveal about the extent of Sarge's neck problems?"

    Welby: "The neck injury that Slaughter went into the match with last night has been further exacerbated by his opponent's constant attacking of the neck area."

    Hudson: "Do you think he should have wrestled in the match after Dick Slater attacked him before it even started?"

    Welby: "I saw the video of what went down before the match. The doctor on-duty at the arena last night made a judgment call. Hindsight is 20/20. I don't think I would have made the same call and let Slaughter wrestle. His neck was improving from a previous attack by Slater several weeks ago. But I don't believe he was truly ready to step back into the ring and fight, though.

    "It was a risky move by Slaughter and he paid for it with the injury now worse than it was beforehand."

    Hudson: "I'm assuming then that he's out of commission for now. Do you know how long he'll be out?"

    Welby: "He's gonna be out of action for at least a couple of months to give the neck time to properly heal."

    Hudson: "So he won't be back in action until the late winter/early spring of next year?"

    Welby: "That is correct."

    Hudson: "On a different subject, we also hear that you have your own reality TV show, similar to' Dr. Oz', coming to TV. Any truth to those rumors?"

    Welby (acting modest): "It's true. I'll be discussing medical issues before a live audience. Maybe we can book Sgt. Slaughter as our first guest to talk about his neck injury."

    Hudson: "Indeed. Can you tell us what the name of the program will be?"

    Welby: "The show will be called: 'Marcus Welby, MD', and it will be airing five days a week in syndication beginning in the spring of next year."

    Hudson: "Doctor, thank you for your time."

    Welby: "You're welcome."

    Hudson: "This is Scott Hudson reporting on-location from San Diego."

    Video faded to black.)

    Match 1
    Mr. Anderson vs. Sid Vicious

    ('I'm Bad, I'm Nationwide' filled the arena and out came Mr. Anderson to boos. Anderson was wearing black tights with 'Anderson' written across the back in white lettering with red trim and black boots. Anderson made his way to the ring and climbed in.

    Anderson walked to the middle of the ring and gestured for a mic. An old school ring mic was lowered from the ceiling.

    MA: "Ladies and gentlemen. Boys and girls. From Green Bay, Wisconsin! Weighing in at 240 pounds! Mr. Anderrrrrrrrrson! An-der-son!"

    'Steel Monkey' filled the arena and out came Sid Vicious to a strong ovation. Vicious was in his black tights and black boots. Vicious made his way to the ring and climbed in.

    Anderson gave Vicious a battle and took a shortcut at one point in the match to gain the advantage. A few exciting near falls.

    At the end of the match, Sid had the upper hand on Anderson. Sid whipped Anderson into the buckles and charged in and nailed Anderson with an avalanche. Sid whipped Anderson into the opposite corner and looked to nail Anderson with a second avalanche but Anderson moved and Sid crashed front-first into the buckles. Sid spun around in the corner and Anderson popped Sid with a series of head shots.Sid staggered out of the corner by the ropes holding his head. Anderson came up behind Sid and bashed Sid with a double sledge to the back. Anderson whipped Sid into the ropes and caught Sid coming off in the fireman's carry position and nailed Sid with a fireman's carry slam (Wasteland). Anderson backed up and waited for Sid to make it to his feet. Sid up and Anderson moved in and Sid swung at Anderson and missed and Anderson caught Sid and nailed Sid with his mic check (reverse STO) finisher. Anderson for the cover and hooked the leg. 1...2...thr... Sid kicked out and shot up to his knees. Anderson nailed Sid with a couple of head shots that didn't affect Sid. Anderson stunned. Anderson hit Sid with a third head shot with the same result and Sid made it to his feet and pointed at Anderson. Anderson then reared back and punched Sid in the jaw to no avail. Anderson started to freak and went to hit Sid once again and Sid blocked the punch try, fired away on Anderson with a series of head shots, whipped Anderson into the ropes and caught Anderson coming off with a brutal sidewalk slam. Anderson down and in a bad way. Sid snapped Anderson up, hoisted Anderson up and nailed Anderson with his powerbomb finisher. Sid covered Anderson and hooked the leg. 1...2...3! Ref called for the bell as the fans cheered.

    Sid up and the ref raised his hand in victory. Sid briefly soaked in the cheers and then left the ring and slapped hands with fans when heading back up the aisle.

    WINNER: Vicious - Pinfall - Powerbomb - 8:27)

    (Announcers discussed Sid's win over Anderson. Hyped still to come: Tru TV Championship Match: Dick Slater (TVC) vs. Scott Irwin. Said Ric Flair and Paul Orndorff make an appearance after the break.)

    (Announcers hyped the next Tru TV Special Event:

    WCW Presents: 'Winter Warfare' - LIVE! on Tru TV - Friday - February 2 - Tampa, FL - USF Sun Dome - 9pm E/6pm P - Tickets on sale Saturday, December 30 @ 10am EST!)

    (Pics aired from the Flair-Hall match at 'Season's Beatings' and showed Orndorff inexplicably costing Flair the match when it appeared Flair had Hall on the verge of certain defeat.)

    (In-ring:

    'Also Sprach Zarathustra' filled the arena and out came Ric Flair to a strong ovation. Flair made his way to the ring in street clothes and had a very serious look on his face as he climbed into the ring. He had a mic.

    Madden: "Can't help but notice Flair and Orndorff are not coming out together. Dissension in the ranks?"

    'There's No Easy Way Out' by Robert Tepper played and out came Paul Orndorff to a solid crowd response. Orndorff was in street clothes and had a mic. Orndorff power-walked to the ring with his eyes locked on Flair and climbed in.

    The two paced around for a moment without saying a word.

    Flair: "What was that on Sunday, Paul?"

    Orndorff: "What was what?"

    Flair (pointing an accusatory finger at Orndorff): "You know what I'm talking about, pal! Don't play dumb with me!"

    Orndorff: "Oh! You mean that. And don't shove your finger in my face, Ric. I mean it."

    Flair: "Dammit! I had Scott Hall beat at 'Season's Beatings'! He was about to tap out in the figure four! Yet you decide to enter the ring and start attacking Hall for no good reason and I lose the match!"

    Orndorff: "Look, Ric! I was overcome with rage at that moment! I hate Scott Hall and Larry Zbysko as much, hell, probably even more than you do! I just completely lost it and wanted to punish Hall! I had laid Zbysko out on the floor and as far as I was concerned it was Hall's turn next on the chopping block!"

    Flair got in Orndorff's face.

    Flair: "It was your job to keep an eye on Zbysko to make sure he didn't get involved in the match! That was your only job! I could handle Hall on my own and I was doing it! Your actions at the end of the match two nights ago defy description! They were completely irrational and costly to me!"

    Orndorff (shook his head and chuckled and looked away from Flair and then looked right back at him. Orndorff was very calm):
    "Ric, of course my actions were irrational. Rage is irrational, man. But we made them suffer..."

    Flair: "They may have suffered, Paul! But Scott Hall won the match thanks to you and only you!"

    Orndorff: "Ric, you need to watch your mouth! You'd better watch what you say to me! It could wind up bad for you if you don't!"

    Flair: "Oh, really! Orndorff! If anyone needs to watch their step it's you, pal!"

    Orndorff: "Is that so?!"

    Flair: "Damn right it is!"

    The two got nose-to-nose with each other and not even an NFL referee could have slid his folded over index card in between their honkers.

    After a brief, tense staredown, Orndorff suddenly grew calm, backed off and chuckled.

    Flair: "What's so funny?! I didn't seem to get the joke!"

    Orndorff shook his head.

    Orndorff: "Ric, look at us right now. Do you see what's happening here? Hall and Zbysko are winning. We're becoming fractured, divided. You can bet they're laughing at us. The last thing Zbysko and Hall want is for Ric Flair and Paul Orndorff to be solidly unified.

    "We're turning on each other when we need to have all our energy and focus aimed at them."

    Orndorff placed his hand on Flair's shoulder. Flair glared at the hand and looked back over at Orndorff.

    Orndorff: "If we don't have full unity, Ric, then we play right into their hands. Are you on board with me in this fight, brother?"

    Orndorff took his hand off Flair's shoulder. Flair started pacing around in the ring as Orndorff looked on.

    Orndorff: "How about it?"

    Now it was Flair's turn to chuckle.

    Flair (coolly): "The real question that needs to be asked, Paul, is are you on board in this fight?"

    Orndorff's face contorted into a mask of anger. Flair looked at Orndorff for a moment and Orndorff didn't respond. Flair just shook his head and then walked past Orndorff and left the ring for the floor and headed back up the aisle as the crowd buzzed as Orndorff never turned around to look at Flair and just kept his gaze locked in the other direction.)

    (Announcers discussed the escalating tension between Flair and Orndorff and wondered if their cohesiveness as a unit was fracturing. Then sent it backstage.)

    (Backstage: Scott Hudson.

    Hudson: "This is Scott Hudson coming to you from the WCW Interview Center.

    "My guest will be looking to regain the Tru TV Championship tonight. He is Scott Irwin."

    Scott walked into the interview area in his ring attire.

    Hudson: "Scott, you had gone on a tour of Japan for a several weeks. But now you're back and scored an impressive win over Bubba Rogers at 'Season's Beatings'. How are you feeling right now?"

    Scott: "I feel good, Scott. The tour of the Orient went great and the victory over a tough opponent like Rogers a couple of nights ago was a nice return to WCW for me."

    Hudson: "You've got a chance to become the first two-time Tru TV Champ in WCW history tonight as you battle Dick Slater. After what we saw Slater pull off on Sunday in two title defenses at 'Season's Beatings', how do you plan for a guy like him?"

    Scott: "Say what you will about Dick Slater, but the man is an excellent strategist. He laid out a plan for both his matches on Sunday and carried them off to perfection."

    Hudson: "Surprised to hear that coming from you."

    Scott: "Gotta give the devil his due.

    "I'm sure he and Sherri have something cooked up for tonight where Sherri will get involved if there's an opening. Gotta do my best to make sure to limit those openings where she can affect the outcome of the match. I need to isolate Slater and make sure the conclusion of this match comes down to just him and me. If I can do that I think I've got a real good chance to win the Tru TV Championship again."

    Hudson: "Well, we know Sherri will be looking for chances to get involved in the match. But what about your brother 'Million Dollar' Bill. Do you think he's lurking around here tonight?"

    Scott: "That's the million dollar question, if you will.

    "Last I heard, Bill was running around all over Europe. But who knows? If he's here he'll try and make his presence felt during the match, you can bet on that.

    "But Bill isn't the TV champ. Dick Slater is. And that's where my focus is right now."

    Camera panned in on Hudson.

    Hudson: "That was Scott Irwin. He challenges Dick Slater for the Tru TV Championship in our main event and it's coming up next!)

    Match 2 (Tru TV Championship)
    'Dirty' Dick Slater (TVC) w/ Mgr. Sherri Martel vs. Scott Irwin

    ('Flirtin' With Disaster' by Molly Hatchet played and out came Scott Irwin to a good ovation. Scott was in his long black trench coat, blue jeans, cowboy-style wrestling boots and blue bandana on his head. Scott slapped hands with fans on the way to the ring and climbed in and briefly saluted the crowd.

    Music-only version of 'The Crunge' played and out came Dick Slater and Sherri Martel to strong boos. Slater was in a black satin ring jacket with 'Slater' written in red block lettering across the back and a thin red stripe running down the outside of each sleeve, black tights with two red stripes running down the outside of each leg, and white boots with black trim. The title was aorund his waist. Sherri was in a blue dress that flaunted her curves, black stockings and black heels. The pair made their way to the ring and climbed up on the apron. Sherri sat on the middle rope and opened the top rope and Slater stepped into the ring and Sherri followed. The pair briefly played to the crowd.

    Ref took the belt from Slater and walked around the ring holding it aloft for all to see before handing the belt off to ring announcers Craig Johnson.

    Ref called both men to the middle of the ring. Sherri came out with Slater and was rubbing Slater's shoulders as Slater and Scott Irwin locked eyes as the ref laid down the ground rules and patted each man down.

    Ref sent each man back to his corner. Sherri had final words and a quick hug with Slater before heading to the floor.

    Ref called for the bell.

    Slater charged out of his corner and Scott caught him with a backdrop. Slater crashed to the mat. Slater up and Scott blasted Slater with a kick to the chest. Slater crashed back to the mat. Scott grabbed Slater and slammed Slater's head into the top turnbuckle. Slater bounced back and staggered off. Slater turned and Scott caught Slater with a kick to the gut and went to nail Slater with his impaler DDT finisher but Slater escaped Scott's grasp, dropped to the mat and rolled out of the ring and dropped to his feet on the floor. Slater started pacing around as the ref ordered Scott to stand back in the ring and Scott obliged. Ref started the 20-count. Sherri came over and talked to her man in an effort to calm him down. After talking with Sherri, Slater went over and grabbed an unfolded steel chair sitting next to the timekeeper's table and threw it into the ring. Scott went over and picked it up and sat on it and gestured for Slater to get back into the ring. Slater climbed up on the apron as Scott got to his feet and tossed the chair aside. Slater cautiously climbed back into the ring. Scott moved in on Slater and Slater bailed to the floor once again as the crowd booed. Scott wanted to leave the ring to go after Slater but the ref intercepted Scott by the ropes in an effort to stop Scott from going into the floor.

    Re: World Class Wrestling

    Just a general thought here but the promo writing on your last show really seemed like a step up. Especially the Slater one, that was so much fun to read.

    Didn't expect Lobos to cash in their title shot so soon, but wondering if we'll get some sort of dusty finish to build more heat for a bigger blow off match. Looking forward to seeing whose next for the New Spoiler as well.

    Ready for the show, as always I'll be reading.

    WCW MAYHEM - EP. 135 - LAS VEGAS, NV - ORLEANS ARENA - 12-19-17 (Taped)

    (Show Intro)

    (Crowd Shots/Pyro)

    (In-ring: Craig Johnson.

    Johnson: "Welcome to 'Mayhem'! I'm Craig Johnson.

    "Would you please welcome my guest at this time. He scored a huge victory at 'Season's Beatings'...'Hitman' Bret Hart!"

    'Hart Attack' played and out came Bret Hart to a loud ovation. Bret was in street clothes. Bret slapped hands with fans on the way to the ring and climbed in and briefly played to the crowd.

    Bret briefly continued to soak in the crowd reaction.

    Johnson: "First of all, Bret, congratulations on your victory over the Dynamite Kid in the sharpshooter vs. sharpshooter submission match at 'Season's Beatings'."

    Bret: "Thank you, Craig.

    "It was quite the battle between Dynamite and myself. Kid can throw down with the best of them inside the squared circle. We really brought out the best in each other at 'Season's Beatings' and I think it showed."

    Johnson: "It showed through crystal clear. The match had the fans on the edges of their seats. It was a lot of exciting back-and-forth between you two and you were finally able to lock Dynamite in the sharpshooter and force him to tap out. How did it feel defeating Dynamite in that fashion?"

    Bret: "The only way to win was to force your opponent to submit to the sharpshooter. I trained Dynamite on how to apply the hold and what pressure points to hit on his opponent's body to inflict maximum pain and greatly increase the chances of forcing a tap out.

    "Dynamite had me on the ropes a few times in the hold in the match and I did the same to him. It was a grueling match and I think we both did a helluva job wearing each other down. I knew as the match progressed that the only way one of us was going to win was to have just a little more left in the tank than the other guy.

    "It was a good fight and a fair fight between two hardened ring warriors."

    Johnson: "After the match, in a goodwill gesture, you went to shake Dynamite's hand and Dynamite just blew you off and left the ring. Is your friendship of several years irretrievably broken?"

    Bret: "I have no idea, Craig. Dynamite is still very bitter over what happened at the end of the Extreme Rules match at 'Autumn Anarchy' in September. He still seems to think that I cost him the match on purpose when I threw that towel in the ring when he had New Spoiler locked in the sharpshooter. The video clearly shows that I tossed the towel in accidentally. I wanted Dynamite to win the WCW World Title that night. I never would have gone out of my way to cost him a match. My offer for re-establishing our friendship still stands."

    Johnson: "Well, we have this video message from Dynamite that he wanted us to show to you and the people watching in the arena and at home. Here it is."

    Video aired on the JumboTron. Kid was standing in street clothes and was being filmed with a phone.

    Kid: "I'm about to check out of me hotel room here in San Diego and head home to Liverpool to spend the holidays with family and friends.

    "I have something to say to Bret Hart before I go, however.

    "Bret, you may think that the match at 'Season's Beatings' was the end between us. But it's really just the start.

    "I will be returning to WCW in the new year. And 2018 will bring the Dynamite Kid-Bret Hart Show with it. See you then, 'Hitman'."


    Johnson: "Any comments on Kid's words?"

    Bret: "If Dynamite wants more matches with me then I say let's make 2018 the Year of the Bret Hart-Dynamite Kid World Wrestling Series!"

    Crowd cheered.

    Johnson: "You just heard it! Bret Hart, everyone!"

    Crowd cheered Bret and Bret walked around the ring and acknowledged the fans.

    Johnson: "Tony and Mark.")

    (Announcers Tony Schiavone and Mark Madden briefly discussed the Bret-Kid situation, welcomed viewers and then ran down the program: WCW World Tag Team Championship Match: Don Muraco & Jimmy Snuka (WTTC) vs. Los Lobos; WCW World Champion New Spoiler and manager Jimmy Hart make an appearance; and more!

    Match 1
    Tom Zenk vs. 'Bad Guy' Scott Hall w/ Larry Zbysko

    ('Do I Have To Do This All Over Again' played and out came Zenk to a good ovation.Zenk was in neon green tights with 'Zenk' written in purple letterng across the back and white ring boots. Zenk slapped hands with fans on the way to the ring and then climbed in and briefly acknowledged the crowd.

    'All Along The Watchtower' played and out came Scott Hall and Larry Zbysko to a mixed crowd reaction. Hall was wearing his black satin vest with a blood print running down it, black tights with a blood print running down them and black boots with a blood print running down them. Hall also had a toothpick in his mouth. Zbysko was in street clothes. Pair climbed into the ring and briefly played to the crowd and Hall threw his toothpick into the camera.

    Zenk went over by the ropes and got the ring mic from Craig Johnson.

    Zenk: "Scott Hall. Since the man you have in your corner has a track record of meddling in your matches, I've decided to have someone in my corner to watch my back.

    "And here's who will be in my corner...Ric Flair and Paul Orndorff!"

    Crowd popped.

    After a brief pause, Flair came out alone in street clothes.

    Schiavone: "Where the hell is Paul Orndorff?! What's going on between Flair and 'Mr. Wonderful'?!"

    Flair made his way to the ring and climbed in and walked over to a puzzled looking Tom Zenk. The two had an animated conversation off-mic and Flair shrugged his shoulders on a couple of occasions when Zenk asked him something.

    Zenk: "Paul Orndorff had agreed to be in my corner for this match. But apparently he's nowhere to be found. But that's okay. Because I've still got...'Whoo!'...the 'Nature Boy' in my corner!"

    Crowd cheered Zenk's response. Flair talked briefly with Zenk and Zbysko talked briefly with Hall before Flair and Zbysko left the ring for the floor.

    Ref called for the bell.

    Zenk and Hall came out of their corners and Zbysko suddenly yelled for Hall to come over by the ropes. Crowd booed as Hall went over by the ropes and and knelt down on one knee and Zbysko started talking to him. The pair kept talking for what seemed like an eternity and Zenk started to move in on Hall. Zbysko pointed over at Zenk and Hall didn't even get to his feet and yelled for Zenk to get back. Booing grew louder. Zenk pacing around. Hall and Zbysko had their little chat and Hall got to his feet and started to walk away from the ropes when Zbysko yelled for and signaled for Hall to come back over. Hall went over by the ropes and dropped to a knee once more and Zbysko started talking to Hall about something. The two became engrossed in their little pow-wow as the boos intensified. Zenk got tired of waiting and went over and grabbed Hall by the hair and pulled Hall to his feet as the boos turned primarily to cheers. Zenk slammed Hall's head into the top buckle. Hall spun around in the corner. Zenk caught Hall with a couple of head shots and whipped Hall into the opposite buckles. As Zenk moved in on Hall, Hall charged out of the corner and dropped Zenk with a running clothesline. Zenk up and Hall caught Zenk with a hard slap across the face. Zenk stunned. Hall picked Zenk up and nailed Zenk with a fallaway slam. Zenk down. Hall arrogantly wiped his hands together like he was about to finish off Zenk. Zenk got up bent over and Hall moved in and caught Zenk with a kick to the chest. Zenk shot up and staggered around holding his chest. Zenk turned and Hall grabbed Zenk by the throat. Hall prepared to chokeslam Zenk but Zenk caught Hall with a couple of kicks to the solar plexus that freed him from Hall's grasp. Zenk moved in with a trio of head shots on Hall, whipped Hall into the buckles and charged in and blasted Hall with a running clothesline. Zenk pulled Hall out of the corner and nailed Hall with a slingshot suplex into a float-over for the cover. 1...2... Hall kicked out. Both men to their feet and Zenk hit Hall with a dropkick that sent Hall hurtling over the top rope and crashing to the floor. Ref ordered Zenk to stand back and Zenk ignored the ref and left the ring for the floor. Zenk snapped Hall up and slammed Hall's head into the ring apron three times. Hall staggered off. Ref counting. Zenk came up behind Hall and grabbed Hall and popped Hall with a belly-to-back suplex on the floor. Both men down. Zenk recovered quickly and was back on his feet as Hall was getting up. Zenk caught Hall with a head shot and threw Hall back into the ring. Hall started crawling across the ring. As the ref was looking at Hall, Zenk had started to climb up on the ring apron when Zbysko snuck over and low-blowed Zenk in front of God, Flair and everybody...but the ref, of course. Zenk crumpled to the floor. Crowd popped as Flair charged after Zbysko and chased Zbysko around the ring. Zbysko quickly climbed into the ring and Flair followed and chased Zbysko out of the other side of the ring to the floor and Zbysko turned tail and ran back up the aisle. Flair chased Zbysko part-way up the aisle as Zbysko high-tailed it to the back. Flair looked back at the ring area and the ref was on the verge of counting out Zenk. Zenk was to his knees on the floor and Flair came over and helped Zenk to his feet as Zenk was holding his willy. Zenk painfully rolled into the ring and Hall immediately came over, grabbed the top rope and started stomping away on Zenk. Hall released the top rope at the ref's count of 4.

Flair wanted to go at Hall and Flair started to step into the ring and the ref intercepted Flair and ordered Flair back down to the floor. Flair and the ref engaged in a heated verbal exchange as Hall snapped up Zenk and went to whip Zenk into the ropes but Zenk reversed and caught Hall coming off with a powerslam. Crowd buzzing as Flair continued to try and climb into the ring and the ref was now physically pushing Flair. Flair was red faced. Hall got to his feet and Zenk came up behind Hall and caught Hall in the sleeper and nailed Hall with the Zenkinator. Most of the crowd popped. Zenk covered Hall and hooked the leg. Crowd yelling for the ref to turn around. Flair not paying attention to what's going on in the ring and was totally zeroed in on the ref. Flair then looked over and saw Zenk covering Hall. Flair pointed for the ref to turn around. Zenk had already had Hall pinned for several seconds. Flair dropped back to the floor and the ref dropped down. 1...2...thr... Hall kicked out. Most of the crowd groaned. Zbysko came charging down the aisle, came up behind Flair and shoved Flair hard at the ring post. Flair's head slammed into the post and Flair went down on the floor. In the ring, Zenk snapped up Hall, whipped Hall into the ropes and blasted Hall coming off with a clothesline. Hall crashed to the mat. Zenk went out on the apron and mounted the top buckle as a shaky Hall got to his feet. Zenk came off with another missle dropkick but this time Hall fell out of the way and Zenk crashed to the mat. Flair still down on the floor. Zbysko standing next to the ring. Hall and Zenk down. Ref counting. Both men slowly made it to their feet and Hall moved in and blasted Zenk with a hard slap upside the head.

Hall hoisted Zenk up and blasted him with the crucifix powerbomb. Hall covered Zenk and hooked the leg. 1...2...3! Ref called for the bell as most of the crowd booed but Hall also had his fans.

    Hall got to his feet and the ref raised Hall's hand in victory as Zbysko climbed into the ring and congratulated Hall. Zbysko then suddenly turned his ire on the downed Zenk and started stomping away on Zenk. Hall joined in and the boot party was in full force. Flair starting to recover on the floor. Crowd popped as Paul Orndorff, in street clothes, came charging down the aisle and hit the ring. Hall and Zbysko stopped kicking a Zenk while he was down and went to attack Orndorff but Orndorff was a one man house of fire and tore into both Zbysko and Hall with feet and fists of fury as the crowd ate it up. Orndorff butted Zbysko's and Hall's heads together. Both men on stagger street. Orndorff grabbed Zbysko and threw Zbysko over the top rope and Zbysko crashed down to the floor. Hall jumped Orndorff from behind and pounded away on Orndorff. Hall went to whip Orndorff into the ropes but Orndorff reversed and caught Hall coming off with a flying shoulder tackle. Hall crashed to the mat. Crowd went crazy glue. A stunned Hall got up and fell back against the ropes and Orndorff charged over and blasted Hall with a running clothesline that sent Hall hurtling over the top rope and crashing to the floor. Crowd roar grew even louder. Flair had recovered enough and climbed into the ring. Orndorff looking intensely out at Hall and Zbysko as Flair tapped Orndorff on the shoulder. Orndorff turned around, briefly paused and then dropped Flair with a shot to the jaw. Crowd in a state of shock and confusion.

    Schiavone: "What the hell was that for?!"

    Madden: "I think Orndorff just turned on Ric Flair!"

    Orndorff turned his attention back to the floor as Hall and Zbysko were both recovering and getting to their feet on the floor. Orndorff glaring at the two.

    Flair made it to his feet behind Orndorff. Flair ripped off his shirt and tossed it aside and came up behind Orndorff, spun Orndorff around and Flair tore into Orndoff with a series of heat-seeking chest chops. Orndorff stunned. Flair whipped Orndorff into the ropes and caught Orndorff coming off with one of his two finishers, the flying forearm shiver to the side of the head. Orndorff crashed to the mat. Flair up and glaring down at Orndorff as Flair's legions of fans cheered him on. Orndorff down holding his head and in dire pain.

    Madden: "Or maybe Flair's turned on Orndorff!"

    Flair looked violently at the downed Orndorff for several seconds before leaving the ring and dropping to the floor. Hall and Zbysko were now standing with each other on the floor and licking their wounds. Flair walked by, angrily glared at the pair, flipped them the double bird to the approval of the crowd and then angrily stalked back up the aisle.

    WINNER: Hall - Pinfall - Crucifix Powerbomb - 9:07)

    (Announcers talked about the wild, weird finish of the Hall-Zenk match and more problems between Orndorff and Flair. Then sent it backstage.)

    (Backstage: Scott Hudson.

    Hudson: "This is Scott Hudson coming to you from the WCW Interview Center.

    'My guests at this time are Los Lobos."

    Los Lobos walked into the interview area in their ring attire.

    Hudson: "Manny Fernandez and Tito Santana, tonight you're going ofr the gold when you clash with World Tag Team Champions Don Muraco and Jimmy Snuka with the belts on the line.

    "This is coming on the heels of what happened at 'Season's Beatings', when you two came out after Muraco and Snuka had successfully defended the tag titles in controversial fashion against the Skyscrapers."

    Fernandez:
    "They cheated to retain the belts at 'Season's Beatings', Scott! Do we have that picture from the match?!"

    Hudson: "Believe we do. There it is."

    Pic aired of Don Muraco covering Dan Spivey while Jimmy Snuka held Spivey's foot down out of the view of the ref and prevented Spivey from kicking out and allowed Muraco to score the pinfall victory.

    Fernandez: "We came out to point out to the ref that Muraco and Snuka cheated to win! We'd most likely have new tag team champions today in the Skyscrapers if Snuka and Muraco don't get away with what they did!

    "The champs tried to deny what they had done but that picture said it all! Then they decided to start trashing us! Not a good thing for the champs to do!

    "And tonight, we have a chance to put Muraco and Snuka in their place and become the new World Tag Team Champions!"

    Hudson: "Tito."

    Tito: "Scott Hudson, there's this thing called respect. Most people are respectful. Our current tag team champions are not by any stretch of the imagination.

    "They don't respect those tag team titles. If they did, they would defend them honorably. Now, they like being the tag team champions of the world. But that doesn't mean they respect their position. They'll do anything to keep the belts because of the money and prestige that comes along with holding them.

    "Honorable men look at those titles as something bigger than money or being famous or whatever. Honorable men know those belts represent a team working hard and forming a strong unit to reach the top of the mountain. Don Muraco and Jimmy Sn..."

    Voice came from outside the picture.

    Voice: "Hey! Hey, boys!"

    Into the picture walked the tag team champs. Both men were in their ring attire. Muraco had his belt slung over his left shoulder and Snuka had his title around his waist. Muraco was also wearing a green University of Hawaii football t-shirt. Fernandez and Tito glared at the interview intruders.

    Tito: "What do you want?"

    Muraco: "I'd like to one day see my face on the one dollar bill. That's what I want. How about you, Jimmy?"

    Snuka: "Well..."

    Fernandez: "You two need to hit the bricks right now! We'll see you in the ring later tonight, man!"

    Muraco: "Temper, temper, Manny. We were watching your little interview on a monitor down the hall. We didn't like you guys saying we had no respect for being the tag team champions. That...that wasn't a nice thing to say."

    Tito: "Who cares if it wasn't nice? It was true."

    Snuka: "We're the best tag team in the world right now, boys. You just keep that in mind. These belts say so. We won 'em because of our hard work and dedication to our craft. And yeah, we want to hold on to these titles for all of 2018 just like we did for almost all of 2017. And we have no problem doing what it takes to win. The champions make more money than the challengers. A lot more. And we like it."

    Muraco: "You're not winning these belts tonight or ever for that matter. Just not gonna happen. We do indeed like the money and prestige that come with being the holders of the tag titles. And we're not giving them up. Even to a couple of chili chokers."

    Fernandez (pissed): "What the hell did you just call us, Muraco?!"

    Muraco: "You heard me. Not gonna repeat it. This is a family show."

    Fernandez: "We're tired of your words and actions because they suck!"

    Muraco (sarcastically): "Such language!"

    Snuka (sarcastically): "Appalling language. Just appalling."

    Muraco: "I think the hymen in my virgin ears was just broken!"

    Tito: "Let's go right now!"

    Tito and Fernandez were ready to fight.

    Muraco: "Noooooooooooooooo! We'll do our fighting in the ring, boys. See you in the main event. Enjoy your loss."

    Muraco and Snuka left the interview area as a seething Fernandez and Tito looked on.

    Hudson: "The World Tag Team Championship match is our main event later tonight and I think it's safe to say the heat level is off the charts between the champs, Don Muraco and Jimmy Snuka, and the challengers, Los Lobos.")

    (Announcers discussed the confrontation between the champs and Los Lobos. Hyped the main event. Said World Champion the New Spoiler and manager Jimmy Hart make an appearance after the break.)

    (In-ring: Craig Johnson.

    Johnson: "We are back on 'Mayhem'.

    "My guests at this time had quite a successful night at 'Season's Beatings'. They are the reigning WCW World Champion The New Spoiler and his manager Jimmy Hart!"

    Instrumental song 'The Champ' played and out on the entrance stage walked World Champion the New Spoiler and manager Jimmy Hart to strong boos. New Spoiler was wearing the silver mask with black trim, a black singlet with the bottom half of the tights covered by red leg-length tights with a black stripe going down the outside of each leg, a fingerless black glove on his right hand and black boots with the silver Spoiler mask on the outside of each boot. He had the title around his waist. Jimmy Hart was in a black suit with 'First Family' written across the back of the jacket, white dress shirt and black thin tie, black and white shoes, sunglasses and carrying his trademark megaphone. The pair made their way to the ring and climbed in.

    New Spoiler stood stoically in the ring as Jimmy Hart briefly played to the crowd.

    Johnson: "Alright. Jimmy, no matter what someone thinks of the New Spoiler, they have to give him credit. He takes on all comers and, so far, has dispatched them all."

    Jimmy: "That's right, baby! And Randy Savage was the latest challenger to be dispatched by the World Champion!

    "After the match at 'Season's Beatings', when we got back to the dressing room, the New Spoiler told me that his win over Savage was an early Christmas gift to me!"

    Jimmy patted his heart.

    Jimmy: "Get's you right here, man! It really does!

    "This man has not only been the World Champion for six months now; he's also undefeated since he arrived in WCW over a year ago! Think about that for a minute, Johnson! It's virtually impossible to go undefeated in any sport for a year! But you're looking at a man who has done it!

    "He hasn't even lost a match by disqualification or count out! The New Spoiler is rapidly moving from great wrestler status territory to Hall of Fame wrestler status territory!"

    Johnson: "The New Spoiler defeated Randy Savage in a 30-minute classic at 'Season's Beatings'. I've got to think that Savage will be getting another shot in the future after his impressive showing there."

    Jimmy: "I'm sure Randy Savage will come up in the challenger's rotation again at some point! But it won't matter! The New Spoiler will defeat him once again like he does with all challengers!"

    Johnson: "Who do you think is next in line to challenge New Spoiler for the title and also attempt to end the New Spoiler's win streak in WCW?"

    Jimmy: "I can't answer that at this time, Craig! We don''t know who will emerge as the next faux contender to the throne! And it doesn't really matter as far as we're concerned! The New Spoiler has proven that he can wrestle and win against any ring style!

    "When the next wrestler steps up to the plate and signs a contract for a title shot, the champ will be good and ready to go and shatter the dreams of another permanent challenger!"

    Johnson: "Only one man has to pin him or make him submit and his title reign and win streak are all over."

    Jimmy: "But who will be the one to finish the job, Craig?! So far, no one has been able to do it and there's no reason to think it's happening anytime soon!"

    Johnson: "You never know."

    Jimmy: "Oh, yes! We know, baby! We know!"

    Johnson: "The New Spoiler has been quite... What's this?"

    Modest crowd response as Nord The Barbarian, in street clothes and with his chain Valhalla draped around his neck, came out and made his way to the ring as Jimmy Hart and New Spoiler looked on.

    Nord climbed into the ring and walked right up to Jimmy and New Spoiler.

    Johnson: "Nord The Barbarian! Surprising to see you out here!"

    Nord: "Craig! I just heard the loudmouth of the South here say it doesn't matter who New Spoiler's next challnger is!"

    Jimmy: "That's right, Nord! And I stand by that statement 100 percent!"

    Nord: "Well....here I am! I'm out here to challenge the New Spoiler to put the World Title on the line against me in two weeks on the first 'Mayhem' of 2018!"

    Decent crowd response.

    Jimmy: "You...you think you can beat the New Spoiler?! Hahahahaha!"

    Nord: "What's so funny there, Hart?!"

    Jimmy: "Tell you what, man! We'll give you the match! But it will not be for the championship! No way, Jose!"

    Crowd booed.

    Nord: "I don't see any Jose out here! Who are you talking to?!"

    Jimmy: "The challenger has to be deserving of a championship match! What makes you think you're deserving, hmmm?!"

    Nord: "You said you didn't care who the challenger was because the New Spoiler would beat them anyway, right?!"

    Jimmy: "I did. I did."

    Nord: "Well, I'm accepting the challenge that's been thrown down by you on behalf of your man!"

    Jimmy: "Nord, it's not that simple! You cannot just waltz out here and demand a title match and get it just like that! That's not the way the business..."

    Tony Garea, in a suit and holding a mic, walked out on the entrance stage to very little crowd reaction.

    Garea: "Can I have the attention of you gents."

    Nord, Jimmy and New Spoiler looked over at Garea.

    Garea: "On the January 2nd, 2018 episode of 'Mayhem', the New Spoiler will be facing Nord The Barbarian. And the match will be for the WCW World Championship."

    Crowd cheered.

    Jimmy: "Wait a minute! We deserve a say in this..."

    Garea: "You made it clear that it didn't matter who the challenger was because New Spoiler was gonna beat them anyway. Nord came out and called you on it. Challenge accepted. The match is in two weeks. Merry Christmas!"

    Garea turned and left the stage.

    Johnson: "Jimmy, you got something to say?"

    Jimmy was fuming as New Spoiler glared at Nord.

    Jimmy: "No! I have nothing to say!"

    Johnson: "Not what I expected to hear from you."

    Jimmy: "Shut up, Johnson!"

    Nord: "I have something to say! I can't wait to kick off the New Year by kicking the New Spoiler's ass and staking my claim to the crown!"

    Last line drew a tremendous pop from the crowd.

    Nord had a wild-eyed smiley face as he and New Spoiler stared each other down. Nord pointed at New Spoiler and New Spoiler responded by slowly raising his fingerless gloved right hand chest high and rubbing the hand.

    Johnson: "It's official! The New Spoiler defends the World Title against Nord The Barbarian on the first 'Mayhem' of 2018 in two weeks! Tony and Mark!")
