    WCW MAYHEM - EP. 136 - TUCSON, AZ - TUCSON ARENA - 12-26-17 (Taped)

    (Show Intro)

    (Crowd Shots/Pyro)

    (Announcers Tony Schiavone and Mark Madden welcomed viewers and ran down the program: World Champion The New Spoiler and challenger Nord The Barbarian confront each other before their World Title clash on next week's first 'Mayhem' of 2018; Rick Martel vs. 'Million Dollar' Bill; a look back at last week's wild tag team title match between Don Muraco & Jimmy Snuka (WTTC) and Los Lobos; and more!)

    (Announcers intro'd footage from last week's match between Tom Zenk and Scott Hall.

    VIDEO:

    Zenk: "Scott Hall. Since the man you have in your corner for our match has a track record of meddling in your matches, I've decided to have someone at ringside 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!'...that 'Nature Boy' in my corner!"

    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. Both men down in the ring. 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 placed Zenk's head between his legs and Hall spread his arms out to his sides signaling it was time for his crucifix powerbomb (Razor's Edge) finisher. 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 the defeated 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. 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 confusion.

    Orndorff turned his attention back to the floor as both Hall and Zbysko were 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. 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.
    )

    (In-ring:

    'Also Sprach Zarathustra' played and out came Ric Flair to a strong ovation. Flair was in street clothes and had a mic. Flair was all business as he made his way to the ring and climbed in. No stylin'-and-profilin' tonight. Flair paced around back-and-forth in the ring.

    'There's No easy Way Out' played and out came Orndorff to a positive fan reaction. Orndorff was in street clothes and had a mic. Orndorff was focused laser-like on Flair as he blew past the fans on his way to the ring and climbed in.

    Crowd buzzing as the two men walked around the ring like caged animals eyeing each other.

    Flair: "Paul Orndorff! Brother, I really don't understand what's gotten into you lately! What the hell was up with you punching me in the face last week?!"

    Orndorff: "Ric, it was an accident, man. Just got caught up in the heat of the moment. I had just cleared the ring of Hall and Zbysko and was so fired up that I just hit the next person who got near me. Unfortunately, that was...you.

    "A question you might want to answer, Ric, is why did you intentionally attack me after I accidentally struck you?!"

    Flair: "It was an accident, huh, Paul? Ha!"

    Orndorff: "It was accidental! Why would I hit you on purpose, Ric?!"

    Flair: "You tell me, pal! You tell me!

    "And you damn bet I laid you out on purpose because I think you hit me on purpose! Tit for tat!"

    Orndorff: "I'm not gonna argue about it with you! Prove it!"

    Flair: "A lot of weird things have been happening with you lately, Orndorff!

    "And you had agreed to be in Tom Zenk's corner with me for his match with Scott Hall last week! Where were you during the match?! You didn't arrive until the match was already over!"

    Orndorff: "You know why I wasn't out there, Ric?"

    Flair: "Let's hear it! I'm all ears!"

    Orndorff started pacing back and forth.

    Orndorff: "The reason I wasn't out there with you in Zenk's corner is because...because I got a phone call from someone telling me they needed to see me outside the arena! The call came in just a few minutes before Zenk's match!"

    Flair shook his head in disbelief.

    Flair: "You really expect me to believe that? You expect these people out here to believe that?! What a load of bull..."

    Orndorff:
    "It's the God's honest truth, man! Why would I lie to you about it?! Jeez!"

    Flair: "You get this call out of the blue from some mystery person telling you that they needed to see you right then and there?! You can't make up a story better than that?! I don't know what's going on with you..,"

    Orndorff (calm but fiercely): "Shut up, Ric."

    Flair: "What was that?! What did you just say to me, pal?!"

    Orndorff: "I told you to shut up! I mean it! Don't push it right now with me!

    "The phone call I received last week was from someone I know but haven't seen in a long time! At least that's what they told me! I was then sent on a wild goose chase outside the arena looking for them but never found them! I think I was set up! I knew the voice on the other end of the phone! I knew her from way back! Maybe Hall and Zbysko put them up to it! I don't know! That's why I didn't come to the ring with you to be in Zenk's corner last week! I was on a futile hunt to find the guy who called me!"

    Flair threw his hands up and started shaking his head in disbelief as he walked around the ring.

    Flair: "I don't know what I'm supposed to believe when it comes to you anymore, Paul! Your behavior lately has been more than a little erratic!"

    Orndorff: "You want erratic, Ric!' What about you?!"

    Flair: "What about me?!"

    Orndorff: "What about the things you've done..."

    Flair pointed to the entrance stage. Crowd booed as the Good Ol' Boys, Barry Windham and Bobby Duncum Jr., made their way to the ring, each with mic in hand. Both men were in street clothes and black cowboy hats. The men made their way to the ring and climbed in.

    Orndorff and Flair glared at the intruders.

    Windham: "Hope we're not interrupting anything?"

    Duncum Jr.: "Not intruding on a lover's quarrel or anything like that, are we?"

    Crowd booed as Windham and Duncum Jr. chuckled. Flair and Orndorff silently looked on at the pair.

    Windham: "Seriously, we came out here for a reason."

    Orndorff: "What would that be?"

    Windham: "Things didn't go as we planned against Los Lobos at 'Season's Beatings' a couple of weeks ago. We want to redeem ourselves."

    Flair: "How do you expect to do that?"

    Windham: "Ric Flair and Paul Orndorff, we want a match with you...tonight."

    Crowd popped at Windham's suggestion.

    Duncum Jr.: "How about it, boys?! The Good Ol' Boys vs. Flair and Orndorff is a main event in any arena in the world! Let's give it to 'em right here in Tucson, Arizona!"

    Some in the crowd popped at the mention of Tucson.

    Flair and Orndorff looked at each other for several seconds.

    Windham: "Look. You guys can gaze into each other's eyes back in the showers. We need an answer and we need it quick."

    Flair: "Need a quick answer, do you?

    "As most of these fans know, Barry, we have quite a history together. As a matter of fact, I'm sure the people remember that you, me, Tully Blanchard and Arn Anderson re-united as the Four Horsemen for one night for an 8-man tag team match at 'Scars N Stripes' in 2016. What happened to that Barry Windham? The man who used to..."

    Windham: "That was then. This is now. Things change. The Horsemen had their last ride together that night in Baltimore 18 months ago. And it was a glorious ride. But now, we're on opposite sides of the fence."

    Flair: "I think I can speak for both of us..."

    Orndorff interrupted.

    Orndorff: "You don't speak for me, Ric. But I accept the Good Ol' Boys' challenge!"

    Flair looked over at Orndorff briefly and the turned back to the Good Ol' Boys.

    Flair: "Before I was so rudely interrupted, I accept your challenge, too!"

    Crowd cheered.

    Ring announcer Craig Johnson was standing at ringside.

    Johnson: "If I can have your attention for a minute. I have just gotten word through my earpiece that the match-making committee has given the thumbs up for this match! Our main event tonight is the Good Ol' Boys vs. Paul Orndorff and Ric Flair!"

    More cheers.

    After a brief staredown between the two teams, Windham and Duncum Jr. left the ring for the floor and headed back up the aisle. Flair and Orndorff started having a heated conversation off-mic in the ring as the crowd was buzzing.)

    (Announcers hyped the main event for later in the evening. Hyped still to come: The New Spoiler (WC) and challenger Nord The Barbarian confront each other before their World Title tilt on the first 'Mayhem' of 2018 next week. Said Rick Martel vs. 'Million Dollar' Bill was next!)

    Match 1
    'Million Dollar' Bill vs. Rick Martel

    (Music-only version of 'Synchronicity 2' by The Police filled the arena and out came Rick Martel to a decent ovation. Martel slapped hands with fans on the way to the ring. Martel was wearing blue tights with the white fleur de lis on each side of the tights, blue boots with white trim and a blue ring jacket with a white fleur de lis on the back with 'Rick Martel' written underneath the logo. Martel got in the ring and briefly saluted the crowd.

    'Money' by Pink Floyd played and out came 'Million Dollar' Bill to pretty strong boos. He was wearing a silver and black tuxedo-like satin jacket with tails. On the back it said 'MDB' in silver lettering with black trim and several silver '$' signs with black trim spread all over the back. He had on a silver bow tie. He was wearing silver and black leg-length tights with the word 'Millionaire' written across the back of the tights in silver lettering with black trim and silver boots with a black $ sign on the outside of each boot. He was carrying his briefcase containing his Battle Royal winnings. Bill made his way to the ring and climbed in.

    Bill handed his briefcase to the ref and barked at the ref to handle it with care. Ref then handed the briefcase off to Craig Johnson, who sat it on the timekeeper's table.

    The wily veteran Martel showed he still had a lot of mileage left in the tank as he gave 'Million Dollar' Bill a fight and came close to putting Bill away with a pinfall on a couple of occasions.

    At the end of the match, Bill was on the offensive. He nailed Martel with some head and body shots and then bodyslammed Martel. Bill quick stomped Martel and went out on the apron and mounted the top buckle and came off with a frog splash but Martel got his knees up and Bill crashed into them. Both men down. Bill holding his gut. Ref counting. Both men slowly made it to their feet and Martel stunned Bill with a dropkick. Bill crashed back to the mat. Martel grabbed Bill's legs and, after a brief struggle, turned Bill over into the Boston Crab. Bill fighting not to give up. Bill started inching toward the ropes while locked in the hold. Bill stopped dead in his tracks short of the ropes as Martel cinched up on the hold. Bill then started inching toward the ropes again and this time was able to grab the bottom rope and force a break in the hold. Bill made his way to his feet and Martel moved in and nailed Bill with a series of head shots. Martel went to whip Bill into the ropes but Bill reversed and caught Martel coming off with a lariat. Martel down. Bill up and waited for Martel to get to his feet. Martel turned and Bill blasted Martel with a bicycle kick to the face. Martel crashed back to the mat. Bill circled around behind Martel as Martel got to a knee. Bill locked Martel into the corbra clutch and pulled Martel to his feet in the hold. Bill then blasted Martel with his Elitist (cobra clutch slam) finisher. Bill covered Martel and hooked the leg. 1...2...3! Ref called for the bell as the crowd booed.

    Bill got to his feet and the ref raised his hand in victory.

    Ref went over to take the briefcase from Craig Johnson but Bill shoved the ref out of the way and grabbed the case and the mic out of Johnson's hands.

    Bill: "It's been a long time. But I am back in WCW!"

    Crowd booed.

    Bill: "I know my brother Scott is watching this at some dive bar right now with some of his street urchin pals! Scott, I am not finished with you! And I won't be until I have beaten you as payback for you taking the Tru TV Championship from me! When I do that, then I'll be finished with you! And when that day comes...I will never, ever have anything to do with you again...you son of a bitch!"

    Crowd booed as Bill tossed the mic, briefly strutted around in the ring holding the briefcase in the air with one hand and then left the ring, dropped to the floor and headed back up the aisle to boos.

    WINNER: 'Million Dollar' Bill - Pinfall - The Elitist - 7:22)

    (Announcers discussed 'Million Dollar' Bill defeating Rick Martel and having words of warning for his brother Scott.)

    (Announcers then intro'd video of highlights from last week's World Tag Team Title match between the champs Don Muraco and Jimmy Snuka and challengers Los Lobos. Announcers said post-match comments from the two teams would air after the highlights.

    VIDEO:

    Muraco up and Fernandez charged in and leveled Muraco with a running clothesline. Fernandez snapped Muraco up and charged over and slammed Muraco's head into the ring bolt that connects the top buckle with the ring post. Muraco bounced back and crashed to the mat, rolled out of the ring and crashed to the floor to the delight of most of the crowd. Ref ordered Fernandez to stand back in the ring and Fernandez did so. Ref started the 20-count. Muraco made it to his knees on the floor and was now bleeding. Fernandez got tired of waiting and blew past the ref and left the ring for the floor. Muraco just getting to his feet and Fernandez laid into Muraco with more head shots. Muraco staggered. Fernandez went to whip Muraco into the ring post but Muraco reversed and Fernandez slammed shoulder-first into the post and staggered off. Ref counting. Muraco came up and grabbed Fernandez and charged over and violently slammed Fernandez's head into the top steel ring step. Fernandez went down by the steps. Muraco quickly regained his bearings on the floor and then quickly rolled in and out of the ring to break the count. Fernandez on his hands and knees and Muraco peeled Fernandez off the floor. Fernandez now bleeding. Muraco threw Fernandez violently into the ringside barricade.

    Snuka grabbed Fernandez, whipped Fernandez into the ropes and caught Fernandez coming off with a backhand chop to the face. Fernandez crashed to the mat. Snuka covered Fernandez and hooked the leg. 1...2... Tito hit the ring and grabbed Snuka by the hair and pulled Snuka off of Fernandez and Tito threw Snuka down. Snuka up and wanted to go after Tito but the ref kept them apart. Ref went over and ordered Tito out of the ring. As the ref became distracted by having words with Tito, Snuka snapped up Fernandez and drove Fernandez into the champ's corner. As Tito and the ref continued to have words, Muraco choked out Fernandez with the tag rope behind the ref's back.

    Snuka snapped Fernandez up by the hair and walked Fernandez in the direction of Tito and held Fernandez there for a few seconds and gestured for Tito to tag Fernandez. Just as Tito went to tag Fernandez, Snuka pulled Fernandez away. Snuka looked back briefly and chuckled at Tito. Snuka went to whip Fernandez into the ropes but Fernandez reversed and caught Snuka coming off with his forearm smash to the head (the Axe) finisher. Snuka fell back through the top and middle rope and crashed to the floor. Most of the crowd cheered. Fernandez staggered around in the ring for a moment before dropping to his knees. Muraco went over to check on Snuka. Fernandez struggling to regain his bearings in the ring. Ref counting out Snuka. Muraco helped pull the stunned Snuka to his feet and Snuka was now bleeding.

    Tito snapped up Snuka, whipped Snuka into the corner and followed Snuka in and blasted Snuka with a step-up enzuigiri. Snuka stumbled out of the corner and crashed to his back on the mat. Tito for the cover and hooked the leg. 1...2... Muraco hit the ring and stomped Tito in the back of the head to break up the pin try. Muraco had his back turned as Fernandez hit the ring and charged up behind Muraco and dropped Muraco with a running clothesline to the back of the neck.

    Snuka blasted Tito with a big jumping headbutt. Tito crashed to the mat and rolled over on his front side. Snuka stumbled back and fell against the ropes. Snuka quickly shook out the affects of the match and went over and tagged in Muraco. A now bleeding Tito made it to his feet and Muraco came up behind Tito and clubbed Tito with a forearm smash to the back.

    Madden: "We're batting a thousand on the blood meter in this one!"

    Muraco pulled Tito out of the corner, whipped Tito into the ropes and caught Tito coming off in the belly-to-belly position and nailed Tito with an overhead belly-to-belly suplex. Tito down and hurting. Muraco snapped up Tito, hoisted Tito across his shoulders and popped Tito with a Samoan Drop. Muraco covered Tito and hooked the leg. 1...2...thr... Fernandez hit the ring and stomped Muraco in the back to break up the pin try.

    Schaivone: "It's a good thing you literally can't feel seething hatred coming through your TV!"

    Muraco pounded on Fernandez, hoisted Fernandez up on his shoulder and blasted Fernandez with a running powerslam. Muraco covered Fernandez and hooked the leg. 1...2...thr... Fernandez kicked out. Crowd cheered. Snuka and Tito slugging it out on the floor. Muraco snapped Fernandez up and went to whip Fernandez into the ropes but Fernandez reversed and caught Muraco coming off with his forearm smash to the head (the Axe) finisher. Muraco went down. Crowd erupted. Snuka had gained the upper hand on the floor and saw Fernandez blast Muraco with his finisher. Snuka ran over and grabbed one of the tag belts off the timekeeper's table. Fernandez covered Muraco and hooked the leg. 1... Snuka quickly climbed into the ring. ...2....thr... Snuka dived over and clubbed Fernandez in the back of the head with the title belt to break up the pin try. Ref called for the bell as most of the crowd booed. Fernandez down on the mat holding the back of his head and writhing in pain.

    Johnson: "In a time of 14 minutes, 9 seconds, the referee has disqualified Don Muraco and Jimmy Snuka! Your winners are Los Lobos!

    "Because the match ended in a disqualification, the titles do NOT change hands! Jimmy Snuka and Don Muraco are still the WCW World Tag Team Champions!"


    Picture flipped showing a bloody Manny Fernandez and bloody Tito Santana of Los Lobos standing in their locker room. Tito had a mic in his hand.


    Tito: "As you people can tell by looking at us, we've just been in a war. And that war was with the tag champions Don Muraco and Jimmy Snuka.

    "I just want to let everyone know that this isn't over by a longshot.

    "You all saw what happened. You all saw that Jimmy Snuka had to interfere to save the titles for them.

    "We had them beat. And they need to know next time that they'll not be so lucky. We're comin', boys! Be ready!"

    Fernandez took the mic.

    Fernandez: "The only reason we are standing here...right now...without the tag team titles is because Jimmy Snuka got his team disqualified to save their asses!

    "As Tito just made clear, this isn't over!

    "What happened out there was not a wrestling match! Oh no! It was a brawl! Both teams are gonna feel the aches and pains from this one for a while! We beat the hell out of each other!

    "But there will be a next time! There's no way that this situation is left hanging off a cliff like this! There will be closure between us!

    "Muraco and Snuka! Can you feel it?! The walls are starting to close in on you! Every passing day brings you closer to losing those belts! And Los Lobos is gonna be the team that will be waiting when it all catches up to you!"

    Picture flipped and the champs Muraco and Snuka were standing in their dressing room. Each man was bleeding and had a title belt slung over his shoulder. Muraco was holding the mic.

    Muraco: "They say it's better to be lucky than good. But we don't need luck because that's how good we are.

    "People will say that we lost the match to Los Lobos tonight. But these belts, they say we're still the World Tag team Champions."

    Snuka nodded his head in agreement.

    Muraco: "Manny and Tito, you have failed to get the job done twice now. The first time was at 'Scars N Stripes' last summer. And now tonight, when the dust settled, you scored a hollow victory. It was a good showing. But what did you really win?

    "Make no mistake about it. We know the championship committee is going to order a re-match.

    "But here's the problem.

    "We held these belts for all but one month of 2017. 2017 was definitely the year of Don Muraco and Jimmy Snuka.

    "The championship committee can pile on all the re-matches it wants between us. Nothing changes.

    "2018 will be remembered for two things. One: Don Muraco and Jimmy Snuka remain the best tag team in the world. That's not a boast because it's a fact. Two: 2018 will be remembered as the year that Los Lobos tried and failed repeatedly to pry the World Tag Titles from our hands."

    Snuka: "Amen, bruddah!"

    Picture faded to black.)

    (Announcers discussed the comments from Los Lobos and the tag champs.

    Madden: "It's hard to argue against Muraco's statement that next year will be more of the same for the champs. They proved here in 2017 that trying to get the titles off them is one tall order."

    Announcers said a major announcement regarding the World Tag Team Titles was coming next week on 'Mayhem'!

    Hyped still to come: Good Ol' Boys vs. Orndorff & Flair. Said The New Spoiler (WC) and challenger Nord The Barbarian confront each other before their World Title tilt on the first 'Mayhem' of 2018 next week and it's coming up 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 this Saturday, December 30 @ 10am EST!)

    (Announcers then intro'd video of a new wrestler coming to WCW.

    VIDEO:

    Video opened with a shot of a high school football field.

    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.)

    (In-ring:

    'Deaf Forever' played and out came Nord The Barbarian to a decent ovation. Nord was in street clothes and had his chain, Valhalla, draped around his neck. Nord made his way to the ring with mic in hand. Nord climbed in the ring and held up his chain with his free hand and waved it in the air as he stomped around the ring.

    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 slung over his left shoulder. 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. Jimmy played to the crowd as New Spoiler stood rubbing his gloved right hand.

    Nord and New Spoiler paced back-and-forth looking at each other.

    Jimmy: "Nord! You'd better keep that chain to yourself tonight!"

    Nord: "I will, Hart! Unless you or the champ here gives me a good reason to use it!"

    Crowd cheered.

    Jimmy: "Next week a new year dawns upon us! 2018 promises to be an even greater year for the New Spoiler!

    "And what a way to kick things off by having him successfully defend the World Title against a viking throwback! The druids will be carrying you out on your shield after the match!"

    Nord: "They will, huh?! Well, I can think of no better way to go out than fighting like a true warrior! And if I meet my demise at the hands of the New Spoiler next week, I demand a proper burial! Light the funeral pyre!

    "And the New Spoiler better be prepared for his own personal Ragnarock!"

    Jimmy: "If you think you're scaring the World Champion with your Odinist viking talk you'd better guess again!

    "The New Spoiler isn't afraid of any challengers! He has proven that time and time again since he won the title last summer!

    "Nord, next week, you're not gonna have a great, historic moment! The fans will not be cheering for you as you win the World Title! No! You're just gonna be another statistic at the hands of this man!"

    Nord: "Hahaha!"

    Jimmy: "What's so funny, baby?!"

    Nord: "Statistics?! Is this baseball or something! We're not playing percentages here, Hart! Pro wrestling is the ultimate survival of the fittest sport there is and ever will be!

    "The only thing the people need to know is that three seconds...three seconds in a lifetime of hours, days, months and years, is all that stands between me and that belt!

    "I can do this! I can beat the New Spoiler! And you two know it!"

    New Spoiler was clearly getting agitated. Jimmy pulled New Spoiler aside and had a brief conversation with him off-mic.

    Jimmy: "Nord, I want you to know that I just had to calm the World Champion down! He was starting to get upset with you! I told him not to hurt you tonight and save the thrashing of you for next week!"

    Nord: "If he wants to come at me right now then let him do it!"

    Crowd cheered.

    New Spoiler removed the title belt from around his waist. Jimmy stepped in front of the champ and wildly gestured for New Spoiler not to go after Nord. Nord gestured for New Spoiler to come after him. New Spoiler gestured for Nord to remove the chain from around his neck and toss it aside.

    Nord: "You want the chain gone?!"

    Nord removed the chain and dropped it over the top rope down to the floor.

    Nord: "Done! Now let's do battle!"

    Crowd buzzing.

    Jimmy stood in front of New Spoiler and was desperately trying to keep New Spoiler from going after Nord. New Spoiler tossed the title over to the side of the ring. Jimmy still trying to keep Nord at bay. Nord tossed his mic and pulled off his shirt and tossed it into the crowd. Nord put his fists up and was ready to fight. New Spoiler kept glaring at Nord.

    New Spoiler then shoved Jimmy out of the way and charged over and jumped on Nord and the two started slugging it out in the ring. Neither man was gaining the advantage as the punches flew. Jimmy holed up in a corner and out of the way. Nord and New Spoiler continued to pound each other in what was an even battle. Eight members of the WCW security team came charging down to the ring. All eight climbed into the ring and grabbed the champ and the challenger. After a brief struggle, security was able to pull them apart and push New Spoiler to one side of the ring and Nord to the other side. Nord was yelling at New Spoiler as an angry New Spoiler glared at Nord without saying a word. Crowd buzzing. The two were being kept apart but both were moving around like caged animals. Nord broke through the wall of security holding him at bay and charged over and jumped into a group of WCW security members and started hitting New Spoiler. New Spoiler fired back with a brief flurry of punches before security was able to get the two separated once again. Four more members of WCW security came out and charged down to the ring and climbed in to help keep the peace. Jimmy Hart had quietly slithered to the safety of the floor. Nord and New Spoiler still wanted to tangle with each other but security was doing a good job of keeping them apart. Security was finally able, with some physical prodding, to get the New Spoiler to leave the ring and drop to the floor as the crowd booed. Jimmy Hart had grabbed the title belt out of the ring and walked over and handed it to New Spoiler. Nord yelled for New Spoiler to get back in the ring. Jimmy briefly talked with New Spoiler and Jimmy pointed back up the aisle. New Spoiler defiantly held the title up with his left hand and raised his fingerless gloved right hand in the air. The fingers on his right hand were bent in the shape of the claw. After a few more tense seconds, Jimmy was able to get New Spoiler to head back up the aisle as the crowd booed. Nord kept at bay in the ring by security as the announcers said they had to go to a break and informed the viewers the main event was next!)

    Flair and Orndorff got into a heated discussion about who should start the match for their team. The pair got animated and an unhappy Orndorff gestured for Flair to start the match.

    Ref called for the bell.

    Flair and Windham started the match for their teams. The two men came out of their corners and circled one another and engaged in a collar-and-elbow tie-up and Windham drove Flair next to the ropes and the ref ordered a break and the men broke cleanly. The two men circled one another again and Windham suddenly broke into a mocking Ric Flair strut and did the Flair 'Whoo!'.

Duncum Jr. toppled back into the ring holding the goods. Orndorff stuck out his hand and yelled for Flair to tag him in. Flair looked over at his partner and then turned his attention back to Duncum Jr.

    Schiavone: "The friction between Flair and Orndorff right now is very evident and very intense!"

    Flair grabbed Duncum Jr. by the legs, maneuvered Duncum Jr. around, yanked on Duncum Jr.'s left leg a few times and then went to lock Duncum Jr. into the figure 4 but Duncum Jr. kicked Flair off.

Orndorff, hand still out, pleading with Flair to tag him in. Flair to his feet turned and said something to Orndorff and the pair started arguing.

    Madden: "I do not believe what I'm seeing with Flair and Orndorff right now!"

    Flair was facing Orndorff and Duncum Jr. took the opportunity to jump Flair from behind and pull Flair away from Orndorff and beat on Flair. Flair in a serious daze. Duncum Jr. whipped Flair into the corner and charged in and popped Flair with a running clothesline. Flair staggered out of the corner and crashed to the mat.

    In the ring: Flair made it to his feet as Orndorff was still down. Flair started walking around in the ring and then stood over Orndorff, bent down and angrily said something in Orndorff's face off-mic. Flair then started walking around the ring again with hands on hips and was shaking his head. Mixed crowd reaction as Larry Zbysko and Scott Hall, both in street clothes, charged down the aisle and hit the ring. Flair was facing away from the entrance aisle and Hall and Zbysko came up behind Flair and jumped him and started pounding the hell out of Flair.

Shot of Orndorff now on knee next to the ropes, his right arm laying on the middle rope. Hall and Zbysko looked over at Orndorff and Orndorff looked emotionlessly at them. Hall and Zbysko left the ringside area and headed back up the aisle. Shot of Flair down on the floor and then a shot of Orndorff still on knee next to the ropes and now with his head down as the program faded to black.

    WINNER: Good Ol' Boys - Pinfall - Windham pinned Orndorff with a Crooked Arm Lariat - 13:49)

    Re: World Class Wrestling

    I feel like I haven’t commented in here for a little while, so I figured I’d drop back in and say hi.

    Showing the video recap of last week and Orndorff initially not showing up when he was supposed to really puts over the importance of tonight’s opening segment. The continuous build of tension between Flair and Orndorff has been done very well, and I thought this was good again. A war of words which leads to them almost fighting until they were interrupted. One thing I noticed is Orndorff said he knew “her” voice but also said he was outside the arena looking for the guy who called him. Not sure if you just made a mistake there or if that is Orndorff caught lying in plain sight. Anyway, The Good Ol’ Boys need a rub after what happened at Season Beatings, and beating Flair and Orndorff could be good for them. I also like the fact that during the promo you mentioned Flair and Whindam’s history. A really good opening to the show here and now we’ve got a fun main event sorted to, good stuff.

    Million Dollar Bill needed a win on his return match back after his LONG holiday. No issues with the result here… Oh and poor Martel.

    Short and sharp promo from him was fine as well, letting us know that the feud with his brother will continue. It was already obvious that was happening but no issues with Bill confirming it. Solid stuff.

    Showing a highlight video of basically the whole match of last week is an interesting tactic… Way to kill some time on your show haha. As for the promos, they both basically confirm that the tag title feud is far from over. Los Lobos was typical baby face stuff which was fine, but Snuka and Muraco were so much better because of how full of shit they are. Putting themselves over for keeping the titles even though they got intentionally DQ’d. Good times. I look forward to seeing these teams do battle again in the future.

    How long until Terry Taylor debuts? I’m excited for him to join the roster.

    Nord The Barbarian challenging for the championship just sort of came out of nowhere, and I don’t know why, but I just can’t take him seriously as a challenger. It seems you just plucked him out of nowhere to fill some time for New Spoiler. With that being said, the segment did a pretty good job of building heat between the two. The brawl was awesome and it was good to see The Barbarian get his licks in because his inevitable loss.

    Even though Flair and Orndorff are having their issues, which were continued brilliantly here, I’m so happy the Good Ol Boys won. Flair/Orndorff under their belts gets them back in business after an underwhelming PPV debut. The real story here though is Flair and Orndorff and with Orndorff just letting Flair get attacked, Ric will go off his nut next week. This angle is developing so well and this was a fun way to end the show.

    Honestly, a pretty good show here. It felt like there was maybe less content than normal, not sure if I’m imagining it or not though. Either way, everything did a good job here and I look forward to reading more.

    How long until Terry Taylor debuts? I’m excited for him to join the roster.

    Nord The Barbarian challenging for the championship just sort of came out of nowhere, and I don’t know why, but I just can’t take him seriously as a challenger. It seems you just plucked him out of nowhere to fill some time for New Spoiler. With that being said, the segment did a pretty good job of building heat between the two. The brawl was awesome and it was good to see The Barbarian get his licks in because his inevitable loss.

    Even though Flair and Orndorff are having their issues, which were continued brilliantly here, I’m so happy the Good Ol Boys won. Flair/Orndorff under their belts gets them back in business after an underwhelming PPV debut. The real story here though is Flair and Orndorff and with Orndorff just letting Flair get attacked, Ric will go off his nut next week. This angle is developing so well and this was a fun way to end the show.

    Honestly, a pretty good show here. It felt like there was maybe less content than normal, not sure if I’m imagining it or not though. Either way, everything did a good job here and I look forward to reading more.
    The whole Flair-Orndorff situation has a few more twists and turns to take. I think you might be surprised at what materializes in the long run here. Can't say much else right now without possibly tipping my hand.

    And the Good Ol' Boys are back in business...

    I did do more video re-capping on this show. Just felt it important to get across the two major storylines.

    If you notice in the tag title match in ep. 135, the two teams didn't really wrestle at all. They just beat the shit out of each other. Very few actual moves in the match. Thought I needed something different and a violent, bloody match between the two sides with the heel DQ finish to escalate the program and build interest for a re-match seemed like a good way to go.

    Glad you're enjoying Snuka's and Muraco's assholishness.

    Also, Terry Taylor is debuting at 'Winter Warfare' in February. Just have a few more intro vids of his to do before then. Think I mentioned in an earlier post that he was gonna be my loosely based version of 'Mr. Perfect'.

    I had to give Nord something to do since he was just languishing on my roster after being part of the Allies in the war with the Sheik's Army. So...presto...World Title contender. Also gives NS a fresh opponent. Who knows...New Spoiler's reign could end in this match... One of those unexpected 'shock the world' moments.

    Thanks for your comments, Stojy. And congrats on your wins in the year end awards.

    WCW MAYHEM - EP. 137 - TUCSON, AZ - TUCSON ARENA - 1-2-18 (Taped)

    (Show Intro)

    (Crowd Shots/Pyro)

    (Announcers Tony Schiavone and Mark Madden welcomed viewers and ran down the program: WCW World Championship Match: New Spoiler (WC) vs. Nord The Barbarian; a major announcement concerning the World Tag Team Titles; Eric Embry makes his first appearance since losing to Tom Zenk at 'Season's Beatings'; another video about a new wrestler coming to WCW: Terry Taylor; Marty Jannetty sees action; and more!)

    (Announcers intro'd video from last week of what went down at the end of the match pitting Ric Flair and Paul Orndorff against the Good Ol' Boys.

    VIDEO:

    Duncum Jr. started to crawl back into the ring and Orndorff saw him. Orndorff went over and stomped on Duncum Jr. a few times. Windham had recovered enough in the ring and was on his feet. Flair recovered on the floor and grabbed Duncum Jr.'s legs and pulled Duncum Jr. out of the ring back to the floor and Flair sent Duncum Jr. crashing into the ringside barricade. Just as Orndorff turned his attention back to Windham, Windham bounded off the ropes and blasted Orndorff with his crooked arm lariat (Axe Bomber) finisher. Orndorff crashed to the mat. Windham covered Orndorff and hooked the leg. 1... Flair climbed up on the apron in an attempt to climb back into the ring, but Duncum Jr. recovered and came over and clipped Flair's leg as Flair was climbing back into the ring. ...2... Flair fell through the top and middle rope into the ring. ...3! Ref called for the bell as the crowd booed.

    Flair made it to his feet as Orndorff was still down. Flair started walking around in the ring and then stood over Orndorff, bent down and angrily said something in Orndorff's face off-mic. Flair then started walking around in the ring again with hands on hips and was shaking his head. Mixed crowd reaction as Larry Zbysko and Scott Hall, both in street clothes, charged down the aisle and hit the ring. Flair was facing away from the entrance aisle and Hall and Zbysko came up behind Flair and jumped him and started pounding the hell out of Flair. Flair went down on the mat and Hall and Zbysko put the boots to him. Orndorff had rolled over by the ropes. Hall snapped Flair up and threw Flair over the top rope and down to the floor. Flair down. Hall and Zbysko left the ring for the floor. Both men grabbed Flair and threw Flair at the ringside barricade. Flair crashed into the barricade and went down in a crumpled heap on the floor. Shot of Orndorff now on knee next to the ropes, his right arm laying on the middle rope. Hall and Zbysko looked over at Orndorff and Orndorff looked expressionlessly at them. Hall and Zbysko left the ringside area and headed back up the aisle. Shot of Flair down on the floor and then a shot of Orndorff still on knee next to the ropes and now with his head down as the program faded to black.


    Announcers then said the cameras kept rolling and intro'd video of what happened after the show went off the air.

    VIDEO:


    Flair was still down on the floor and slowly starting to recover from the attack by Hall and Zbysko. In the ring, Orndorff slowly made it to his feet. Orndorff, with hands on hips and walking around, briefly shook out the affects of the match and then left the ring, dropped to the floor and headed back up the aisle without even bothering to check on Flair. Camera followed Orndorff as he walked to the back.

    Camera kept rolling as backstage interviewer Scott Hudson, with mic in hand, caught up with Orndorff as Orndorff walked to his locker room.

    Hudson: "Paul Orndorff, can I have a word with you?"

    Orndorff kept walking without responding.

    Hudson: "Why did you walk off and leave your tag team partner Ric Flair at ringside?"

    Orndorff stopped and had his back turned to the camera.

    Hudson: "Can you speak to me for a moment?"

    Orndorff kept his back turned to the camera and said nothing.

    Hudson: "Can you answer..."

    Orndorff (eerily calm): "You want an answer, Hudson?"

    Hudson: "That would be appreciated."

    Orndorff's back was still to the camera. Orndorff looked up at the ceiling, inhaled deeply and blew the air our through his mouth and then looked back down.

    Orndorff: "Well, here's your damn..."

    Ric Flair suddenly charged into the picture and shoved Orndorff from behind. Orndorff stumbled forward and then spun around and his face was a mask of rage. The two got in each other's faces.

    Flair: "What the hell was that, pal?! You just leave me laying out there?! I'm you're tag team partner, remember?!"

    Orndorff: "I was still in a bit of a mental fog, Ric, because Windham hit me with his big lariat! Where were you when I was being pinned by him?!"

    Flair: "Are you (bleep)ing kidding me?! I tried to climb back into the ring and make the save but Duncum tripped me up before I could get to you!"

    Orndorff angrily shook a finger in Flair's face.

    Orndorff: "Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight! Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight! You know what, Ric?!"

    Flair was seething and was beet red in the face.

    Orndorff: "Just forget it."

    Orndorff turned and started to walk away.

    Flair: "I'm not done talking to you! Hey!"

    Flair walked up behind Orndorff and spun Orndorff around. Orndorff and Flair briefly glared at one another and Orndorff then shoved Flair and Flair returned the shove. The two appeared on the verged of coming to blows when Hudson suddenly stepped in.

    Hudson: "Hey! Hey! Not here! Not like this!"

    Orndorff and Flair kept looking at each other with fury in their eyes.

    Orndorff (low-key but with anger in his voice): "We'll resolve this later, Flair."

    Orndorff stormed off as Flair stood with Scott Hudson.

    Hudson: "Ric, do you have anything you want to say?"

    Flair kept looking at Orndorff as Orndorff just kept walking off into the distance.

    Hudson: "Ric?"

    Flair (agitated): "Why don't you take that microphone and shove it where the sun doesn't shine."

    Flair then walked off as Hudson looked on.)

    (Announcers discussed the Flair-Orndorff situation and wondered how it was all going to finally play out. Then sent it to the ring.)

    Match 1
    'Living Legend' Larry Zbysko w/ Scott Hall vs. 'Cowboy' Bob Orton

    ('Desperado' by Alice Cooper played and out came Bob Orton to a modest ovation.

Orton slapped hands with fans on the way to the ring and climbed in and briefly acknowledged the crowd.

    'I'm The Man' played and out came Larry Zbysko and Scott Hall to a mixed crowd reaction.

    (Pics aired from 'Season's Beatings of the tables match where Tom Zenk beat Eric Embry.)

    (In-ring: Craig Johnson.

    Johnson: "We are back on 'Mayhem'! I'm Craig Johnson.

    "Please welcome my guest at this time...Eric Embry!"

    'Start Me Up' played and out came Embry to pretty strong boos. Embry was in street clothes. Embry solemnly made his way to the ring and climbed in. Embry looked somewhat sad as he looked out at the booing crowd.

    Johnson: "Alright. Eric, we haven't seen you since you lost the tables match to Tom Zenk at 'Season's Beatings'. What have you been up to since then?"

    Embry (somber): "After I lost unexpectedly to Tom Zenk in the tables match, I went into a deep, downward spiral. It was a dark time for me. Both my mind and my body were weighted down by the loss. So, I needed some spiritual and physical cleansing."

    Johnson: "What do you mean by spiritual and physical cleansing?"

    Embry: "I underwent some serious auditing over a period of several days."

    Johnson (puzzled): "Auditing? What..."

    Embry: "Yes, auditing. My personal auditor and I never left the building where the auditing took place for almost a week. The cans were practically glued to my hands."

    Johnson (stunned): "Cans?! What are these cans?! What are you even talking..."

    Embry: "As I firmly grasped the cans and purged myself of the loss in the tables match my needle was floating."

    Johnson: "Huh?!"

    Embry: "I could feel myself clearing out the negative affects of the loss. It came pouring out of me. And it was all thanks to auditing.

    "Without that intensive auditing, I might have jumped off the Bridge!"

    Johnson (exasperated): "Is this some kind of joke?! What bridge are you talking about?! Where is this bridge?! Please, Eric! This makes no sense!"

    Embry: "It's not a physical bridge that I'm talking about. Craig! It is THE BRIDGE!"

    Johnson slapped his head and started walking around the ring and was clearly baffled and frustrated with the whole interview.

    Johnson: "Give me a minute to compose myself! Jeez!

    "What is this bridge, then?!"

    Embry: "It's the Bridge to Total Freedom! It is the only Bridge you can walk on and become completely clear!"

    Johnson just shook his head in disbelief.

    Johnson: "Just keep talking. I have no idea what to say at this moment."

    Embry: "Good! Keep your mouth shut and let someone who is clear talk to these people!

    "The intense auditing I underwent has freed me from the bad things that threatened to bring me down! I've flushed all the toxins out of my mind and body from what transpired at 'Season's Beatings'!

    "I am now ready to butt heads with that SP Tom Zenk once again in this ring! And this time there will be no stopping me from getting the job done and furthering my walk along THE BRIDGE!"

    Johnson: "I...I'm done!"

    Johnson flipped the mic in the air and left the ring for the floor as Embry stood in the ring and soaked in the negative crowd reaction.)

    (Announcers discussed another bizarre interview with Eric Embry. Hyped still to come: WCW World Championship Match: New Spoiler (WC) vs. Nord The Barbarian; a major announcement concerning the World Tag Team Titles; another video about a new wrestler coming to WCW: Terry Taylor; and more. Said Marty Jannetty wrestles 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 NOW!)

    (In-ring: Craig Johnson.

    Johnson: "We are back on 'Mayhem'.

    "With me in the ring right now is Tony Garea of the WCW Championship Committee."

    Garea was in a suit.

    Johnson: "Tony, after what went down in the tag team title match a couple of weeks ago, we hear you have some major news regarding the belts."

    Garea: "I do, Craig.

    "Two weeks ago, we saw a wild match between the tag team champions Don Muraco and Jimmy Snuka and the challengers Los Lobos. It wasn't so much a wrestling match as it was a brutal, blood-letting of a fight. Both teams tore into each other with an almost animal-like ferocity. It's safe to say that both teams might still be feeling the affects of that match today because that's how hard-hitting it was.

    "We also saw the champions intentionally get themselves disqualified when it appeared they were on the verge of defeat. Los Lobos made a very strong showing in the match and we believe they proved themselves more than worthy of another shot at the titles."

    Johnson: "When will the match be taking place?"

    Garea: "The championship committee has decided that the match will take place here on 'Mayhem' in two weeks."

    Crowd cheered.

    Johnson: "So, that's the January 16th episode of 'Mayhem'?"

    Garea: "You've got it, Craig. And it promises to be another barn-burner between these two very good teams."

    Johnson: "You fans heard it! It's the re-match for the World Tag Team Titles as Jimmy Snuka and Don Muraco defend the belts one more time against Los Lobos on 'Mayhem' two weeks from tonight!

    "Tony and Mark. Back to you.")

    (Announcers discussed the making of the tag team title re-match.)

    (Announcers then intro'd another video of a new wrestler coming to WCW: Terry Taylor.

    VIDEO:

    Video opened with a shot of Terry Taylor standing inside a batting cage facing a pitching machine. A man in orange and black baseball attire was standing outside the cage and observing.

    Taylor was in blue sweat pants with two white stripes going down the outside of each leg, blue and white cleats, a blue batting helmet with 'TT' in overlaid white lettering on the front of the helmet (think the Texas Tech 'TT' logo) with a left ear flap and a white baseball jersey with the 'TT' logo in blue lettering on the left breast and 'Taylor' and the number '1' in blue on the back of the jersey.

    Video showed shots from different angles of Taylor tearing into one pitch after another. Taylor then stopped hitting and turned and walked outside the cage with bat in hand.

    Man outside the cage: "Terry! You just faced 100 pitches, all at major league speed, and hit every one of them solidly! My players couldn't even do what you just did! Incredible!"

    The man shook Taylor's hand.

    Taylor: "That's high praise coming from Don Mattingly."

    Mattingly: "Are you sure you don't want to give Major League Baseball a try?"

    Taylor: "I like baseball. But my love is wrestling."

    Mattingly: "Well, if you ever want to suit up and play hardball, just give the Marlins a call."

    Taylor: "Thanks, Don. Might just do that one day if I get bored of outclassing the competition inside the squared circle."

    Mattingly: "You do that. Awesome showing inside the cage. Just awesome."

    The pair shook hands one more time and Mattingly walked away.

    Taylor: "I'm Terry Taylor. But you can call me the 'World's Greatest Athlete'.

    "I'm not good, I'm great at all sports. I don't even need much practice. It all comes so naturally to me. I make it look easy while other athletes in the sports world have to practice all the time just to be lucky enough to play their sport at an even remotely advanced level.

    "And I'm also gonna make it look real smooth once I step in between the ropes in WCW. You've got a lot of great wrestlers there; and they're all good athletes.

    "But none of them are the 'World's Greatest Athlete' Terry Taylor! And you're gonna see, just like I showed in this batting cage here, that I back up my words with results! Sports is all about results and the 'World's Greatest Athlete' delivers results like no one else can!

    "See you soon!"

    Taylor turned and walked back into the batting cage.

    Taylor: "Start up the pitching machine again!"

    Taylor again stepped to the plate and took a couple of practice swings. A pitch came out of the machine and Taylor drilled it as the video faded to black.)

    (Announcers discussed the Taylor video. Then sent it to the ring.)

    Match 2
    Marty Jannetty vs. Pete Doherty

    (Doherty was already in the ring and announced.

    'Rock-N-Roll Fantasy' by Bad Company filled the arena and out came Jannetty to a solid ovation. Jannetty was in a black leather jacket with an electric guitar design across the back, leg-length tights that had a red left leg and black right leg and red boots. Jannetty slapped hands with fans on the way to the ring and then climbed in and acknowledged the crowd.

    Jannetty removed his leather jacket and was handing it down to the ring attendant when Doherty charged over and jumped Jannetty from behind.

    Ref called for the bell.

    Doherty pounded on Jannetty a little more, whipped Jannetty into the ropes and caught Jannetty coming off with a backdrop. Doherty looked out at the crowd and pointed at his head to show how smart he was. Unfortunately, Jannetty had quickly gotten to his feet behind Doherty. Doherty turned and Jannetty pulverized Doherty with his superkick finisher. Jannetty for the cover. 1...2...3! Ref called for the bell as the crowd cheered.

    Jannetty to his feet and the ref raised his hand in victory.

    Tommy Rich, in his Southern Connection ring attire came out and made his way to the ring. Rich climbed in and Jannetty turned and was surprised to see him.

    Announcers pointed out that Rich and Jannetty used to wrestle as the tag team the Southern Connection. Rich extended his hand to shake Jannetty's and Jannetty responded in kind and the pair shook hands and then Rich raised Jannetty's hand in victory and Jannetty seemed a little stunned by that. Rich then let go of Jannetty's hand and bowed to Jannetty and then applauded Jannetty. Jannetty seemed puzzled. The two then started talking in the ring.

    WINNER: Jannetty - Pinfall - Superkick - 0:21)

    (Announcers discussed the quick win by Jannetty and Rich coming out after the match and congratulating Jannetty in an over-the-top fashion on winning the match. Said the World Title match main event is coming up after the break.)

    (Announcers intro'd video for the next WCW PPV:

    Match 3 (WCW World Championship Match)
    The New Spoiler (WC) w/ Mgr. Jimmy Hart vs. Nord The Barbarian

    ('Deaf Forever' played and out came Nord to a decent amount of cheers. Nord was in his fur-lined vest, black tights with white life rune on the back and fur-lined boots. He was carrying his chain Valhalla. Nord got in the ring and stomped around and waved his chain in the air. Nord then went to his corner.

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

    Ref took the belt from New Spoiler and walked around the ring holding the belt aloft for all to see. Ref then handed the belt off to ring announcer Craig Johnson.

    Ref called both men to the middle of the ring. Jimmy Hart came out with New Spoiler. Ref laid down the ground rules and the patted each man down as Nord and New Spoiler glared at each other. Ref sent each man back to his corner.

    Jimmy had final words with New Spoiler before heading to the floor.

    Ref called for the bell.

    The two men came out of their corners and circled one another and engaged in a collar-and-elbow tie-up and Nord threw New Spoiler off and New Spoiler crashed to the mat. New Spoiler to his feet and the two engaged in another collar-and-elbow tie-up and Nord once again threw New Spoiler off and down to the mat to the delight of the crowd. New Spoiler made it to his feet again and quickly sized up the situation. New Spoiler charged at Nord and Nord dropped New Spoiler with a shoulder tackle. New Spoiler up and charged at Nord and Nord caught the champ and pressed slammed the champ to the mat. New Spoiler quickly rolled out of the ring and dropped to his feet on the floor and New Spoiler started furiously pounding the ring apron with his hands and then started angrily walking around. Jimmy came over to talk with the champ and calm him down. Ref ordered Nord to stand back and Nord did and the ref began the 20-count.

    Madden: "Nord has the World Champion shaken up early in this match. Now might be the time to go for the kill and try to win the title."

    New Spoiler climbed back up on the ring apron as the count grew. New Spoiler cautiously started to step back into the ring. With one foot in the ring, New Spoiler looked over at Nord and Nord gestured for New Spoiler to get in the ring. New Spoiler cautiously climbed back into the ring and started slowly moving around in the ring. New Spoiler initiated another collar-and-elbow tie-up. The two men struggled for an advantage and the New Spoiler got up inside on Nord and hit Nord with a series of knees to the gut. New Spoiler then spun around behind Nord and caught Nord in a hammerlock. New Spoiler cinched up on the hold as Nord winced in pain. New Spoiler worked over the hold but Nord would not submit. Nord found the strength to escape from New Spoiler's grasp and wound up reversing the hammerlock. Now, New Spoiler locked in the hold. Nord tightened up on the hold. New Spoiler started inching towards the ropes in an effort to grab the top rope but Nord pulled New Spoiler away from the ropes and rode New Spoiler down to the mat locked in the hold. Nord then drove a series of knees into New Spoiler's left arm area. Nord released the hold, got up and stomped on New Spoiler's left arm. New Spoiler shot to his knees holding his left arm.

Nord rolled over on his back and New Spoiler got on top of Nord and raised his gloved right hand and went to lock Nord in his Iron Claw finisher but Nord was able to get his arms up and cross them in an 'x' fashion to block the attempt. The two struggled as New Spoiler kept trying to fight through Nord's resistance and clamp on his devastating finisher. Nord kept successfully repelling New Spoiler's claw try and was able to gain leverage and turn so he was now on top of New Spoiler. Nord on top of New Spoiler and popped New Spoiler with a series of head shots. Nord snapped New Spoiler up and locked New Spoiler in a front facelock and hammered New Spoiler across the upper back with a series of stiff forearm smashes. New Spoiler down to his hands and knees.

    WCW MAYHEM - EP. 138 - BEAUMONT, TX - FORD ARENA - 1-9-18 (Live)

    (Show Intro)

    (Crowd Shots/Pyro)

    (Announcers Tony Schiavone and Mark Madden welcomed viewers and ran down the program: Sid Vicious vs. 'Million Dollar' Bill; Tag Team Champs Don Muraco & Jimmy Snuka and challengers Los Lobos make an appearance before their big title re-match next week; an interview with Sgt. Slaughter; pre-recorded comments from Ric Flair and Paul Orndorff; Non Title: Dick Slater (TVC) vs. Brain Blair; another video from 'World's Greatest Athlete' Terry Taylor; and more! Then sent it to the ring.)

    Match 1
    'Hitman' Bret Hart vs. Terry Gibbs

    (Gibbs was already in the ring and announced.

    'Hart Attack' filled the arena and the fans exploded as Bret Hart came out. Bret was in his famous pink and black leg-length singlet, white boots with black trim and a pink star on the outside of each boot and wrap-around sunglasses. Bret slapped hands with fans on the way to the ring and stopped at ringside and took his sunglasses off and handed them to a young fan. Bret climbed into the ring and briefly played to the crowd.

    The crafty, sneaky Gibbs gave Bret a fight early before Bret took control of the affair and finished off Gibbs by getting Gibbs to tap out in the sharpshooter.

    WINNER: Bret Hart - Submission - Sharpshooter - 3:25)

    (After the match: After Bret released the hold, the ref raised Bret's hand in victory as the crowd cheered. Bret stood in the ring and was acknowledging the crowd.

    Mixed crowd reaction as Dynamite Kid, in street clothes and carrying a mic, made his way to the ring. Bret looked over and saw Kid climb into the ring. Bret saw Kid had a mic and Bret went over by the ropes and asked for the ring mic from Craig Johnson and got it. The two started pacing around in the ring.

    Bret: "Good to see you back, Dynamite."

    Kid: "Can the pleasantries, Bret.

    "I just flew into town and came straight to the arena after spending the last few weeks back home in Liverpool for the holidays. I literally walked in the door just a few minutes ago.

    "You ruined me entire holiday, Bret. Christmas. New Year's. These should be happy times. But for me they were miserable. You know why that was?"

    Bret: "No. But I'm sure you're going to tell us."

    Kid: "Damn right I am.

    "I couldn't get our match from 'Season's Beatings' out of me mind. It's all I've thought about since I lost to you that night in San Diego. Every waking minute it's in me head. I ruined the holiday for me family because I was such a drag to be around. I talked non-stop about the match with anyone who would listen.

    "I was right there on the cusp of beating you with your move the sharpshooter that night. You can't be much closer to victory than I was without winning. I felt like I lost an American football game when I was stopped on the one inch line just outside the end zone. That's how frustrating this loss was for me, Bret.

    "We've each wrestled thousands of matches in our careers. We've each lost matches. But no loss has ever bothered me like the one at 'Season's Beatings'. And there's only one way that I can unburden meself of the loss."

    Bret: "How's that?"

    Kid: "Bret, I want a re-match with you. I know that I can beat you. I let victory slip through my fingers in our first meeting and I have to have this. Just one more match between us. I'm beggin' ya."

    Bret: "Even though we aren't on the best of terms personally, Dynamite, I have great respect for you as a wrestler. You're one of the those rare wrestlers who really lights the ring on fire when that bell rings. And when we wrestled at 'Season's Beatings' we tore the house down."

    Crowd cheered.

    Bret: "We match-up well with each other. It's not like a lot of matches where the fans know who is gonna win before the bell rings because it's an obvious mis-match. Anytime it's the Dynamite Kid and Bret Hart wrestling no one knows who's gonna win going in.

    "You could feel the anticipation in the crowd before our match at 'Season's Beatings'. It was one of those rare moments in this sport these days when the fans are totally fired up for one particular match..."

    Kid: "Yes or no?"

    Bret: "What?"

    Kid: "Are you open to a re-match, Bret! Yes or no?! Spare us the speeches!"

    Bret walked around for a moment as Kid was clearly becoming agitated. Bret turned and looked right at Dynamite.

    Bret: "Dynamite, I accept your challenge for a re-match!"

    Crowd cheered.

    Dynamite and Bret looked at each other as Rob Russen of the match-making committee walked out on the entrance stage with mic in hand. He was in a suit.

    Schiavone: "That's Rob Russen of the match-making committee."

    Russen: "May I have your attention, please."

    Bret and Kid looked over at Russen.

    Russen: "I've been standing in the back listening to you two. You had one of the best matches I've ever witnessed at 'Season's Beatings'.

    "You guys want a re-match with each other? Then you've got it."

    Crowd cheered.

    Bret: "Thank you, Rob Russen."

    Kid said nothing.

    Russen: "And the match will take place on Friday, February 2nd, at the 'Winter Warfare' show which will be airing right here on Tru TV! Best of luck to both of you!"

    Russen turned and headed to the back.

    In the ring, Bret and Kid looked at each other and had a brief conversation off-mic. Bret then extended his hand to shake Kid's in a gesture of goodwill, but Kid just looked at Bret's hand and then up at Bret's eyes and then Kid turned and left the ring, dropped to the floor and headed back up the aisle without looking back to a mixed crowd reaction as Bret looked on from the ring.)

    (Announcers discussed the re-match between Kid and Bret being made for 'Winter Warfare'. Hyped still to come: Sid Vicious vs. 'Million Dollar' Bill; Tag Team Champs Don Muraco & Jimmy Snuka and challengers Los Lobos make an appearance before their big title re-match next week; pre-recorded comments from Ric Flair and Paul Orndorff; Non Title: Dick Slater (TVC) vs. Sam Houston; another video from 'World's Greatest Athlete' Terry Taylor; and more! Said in interview with Sgt. Slaughter was coming up after the break!)

    (Announcers intro'd video of the situation between TV Champ Dick Slater and Sgt. Slaughter where Slater injured Sarge's neck on two occasions.

    VIDEO:

    11-14-17 ep. of 'Mayhem':

    Sarge turned in Sherri's direction and started having words with her. As Sarge was distracted with Sherri, Slater took the opportunity to bash Sarge across the back of the head with the TV Title belt. Sarge went down and was holding the back of his head. The ref then ordered Slater to leave the area immediately and Slater responded by bashing the ref in the face with the belt. Ref crashed to the mat and was barely moving. Slater said something to Sherri and Sherri quickly left the ring, dropped to the floor and reached under the ring apron and pulled out a folded up steel chair. Sherri slid the chair into the ring as Slater put the boots to the downed Sarge.

    Slater grabbed the chair and placed it next to Sarge. Slater grabbed Sarge, hoisted Sarge up and nailed Sarge with a piledriver on the chair. Sarge back down and now in really bad shape. Several members of WCW security came charging down the aisle as Slater grabbed his title and he and Sherri bailed to the safety of the floor.


    12-10-17 'Season's Beatings' PPV (Tru TV Championship match between Slater (TVC) & Slaughter):

    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.

    Johnson (speaking to the doc who came to the ring): "Can Sgt. Slaughter wrestle tonight?"

    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."


    During the match:

    Slater 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 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 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... 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. 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... 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 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.
    )

    (Announcers then intro'd a pre-recorded interview Scott Hudson did a few days earlier with Sarge at his home.

    VIDEO:

    Video opened with a shot of Sarge, wearing a soft neck collar and street clothes, and Hudson, in a suit, sitting on a couch in Sarge's home.

    Hudson: "This is Scott Hudson on location from Parris Island, South Carolina. We are at the home of Sgt. Slaughter.

    "Sarge, we know what went down with you and Tru TV Champion Dick Slater. How's the neck doing today?"

    Sarge: "Well, Hudson, the neck is coming along good. Real good. I'm now at a point where I don't have to wear the neck collar all day. I can take it off for a few hours and move my neck a little. I still have to be careful, though. I don't want to risk seriously re-injuring it."

    Hudson: "Have doctors said when you can come back to wrestling?"

    Sarge: "I've been seeing a head and neck specialist as well as my regular doc. Both have said the same thing. The neck is healing well and, barring something unforeseen, I should be back in the ring in a couple of months or so."

    Hudson: "Bet you're anxious to lace 'em up again?"

    Sarge: "You got that right. I can't wait to return to doing what I love. I am going crazy just having to stay around here most of the time. I want to wrestle."

    Sarge chuckled.

    Sarge: "You know what they say? Anything to get out of the house."

    Hudson (chuckling): "That is true. You can go a little stir crazy being confined to one place for an extended period of time."

    Sarge: "Ain't that the truth."

    Hudson: "Dick Slater has injured your neck on two occasions now. There's obviously real bad blood between you two. When you come back, what's the main objective of Sgt. Slaughter?"

    Sarge: "My objective is to crush Dick Slater. I don't just want to beat him. I want to obliterate him. He could have permanently damaged my neck. I want payback for what happened."

    Hudson: "Well, I don't think anyone can..."

    Sarge: "Just let me say something else about Slater. In its own twisted way, you have to give him his due."

    Hudson: "His due? He tried to seriously injure you!"

    Sarge: "He did try to maim me.

    "But, he said that when he hurt my neck with that piledriver on the chair a month before our match at 'Season's Beatings' that the injury would come back to haunt me...and he was right. His plan worked to perfection.

    "But the next time we collide in the ring it's gonna be a different story. My neck will be healed when it happens. I'm certainly not gonna let Slater catch me off-guard again with an ambush before the match like at 'Season's Beatings'. Everything's gonna be tightened up. I'm gonna be primed and ready for Slater next time and we'll see just how battle ready Slater is. And you can take that to the bank."

    Hudson: "That was Sgt. Slaughter. He is on the road to recovery and I would not want to be Dick Slater when the Sarge returns to WCW.

    "This has been Scott Hudson on location."

    Video faded to black.)

    (Announcers discussed the Sarge interview.)

    (Announcers then intro'd another video of a wrestler coming to WCW: The 'World's Greatest Athlete' Terry Taylor.

    VIDEO:

    Video opened showing an ice rink.

    Terry Taylor skated into the picture in goalie attire and took his place in between the pipes. Taylor was wearing a blue and white goalie mask, blue and white goalie pads, blue hockey pants with white trim, blue and white skates, a blue hockey jersey with 'TT' in white overlaid lettering (think the Texas Tech logo) in the middle of the front of the jersey, white trim on the sleeves and on the lower part of the jersey, and 'Taylor' and the number 1 in white on the back of the jersey.

    Taylor stood in the pipes. A shot of two groups of pucks were shown on the ice. Two men in black, white and gray hockey gear skated into the picture. Their faces weren't shown. The man who shot right-handed was wearing number 11 and the man who shot left-handed wore number 99.

    Taylor got settled in goal and nodded his head. A horn sounded.

    The men each took turns firing shots at Taylor and Taylor was shown turning aside several shots in spectacular fashion. The horn sounded again.

    Taylor took off his goalie mask and sat it on top of the net.

    The two men skated over to Taylor.

    Right-handed shooter: "We shot 50 pucks at you and you stopped all of them!"

    Left-handed shooter: "That was amazing! You have the makings of a great goalie!"

    Taylor: "Mark Messier and Wayne Gretzky, I appreciate the sentiment."

    Shot of Messier's and Gretzky's awed faces.

    Taylor: "Coming from you guys that means a lot."

    Gretzky: "The door will always be open for a talent like you to play in the NHL."

    Messier: "No doubt about that after what you just did."

    Taylor: "Playing in the NHL would be a real temptation for me if I wasn't so great at my first love which is professional wrestling.

    "If it's any consolation for you, I will never forget this day."

    Gretzky: "Neither will we."

    Messier: "I'll be telling my grandkids about this day when I'm old, gray and sitting in my rocking chair on the front porch. What a display by you, Mr. Taylor."

    Taylor nodded with a smirking look on his face like he knew Gretzky and Messier were in the presence of greatness.

    Gretzky: "That offer stands. Anytime you wanna try the NHL..."

    Taylor: "Gotcha. Maybe after I dominate the competition in WCW I could be looking for new worlds to conquer. So you never know."

    Gretzky and Messier laughed and then Taylor fist bumped both men and they skated off. Taylor turned and grabbed his water bottle off the top of the net and took a quick drink before putting the bottle back down.

    Taylor: "You all just witnessed something that never happened in sports history.

    "I just stopped all 50 shots fired on me by hockey hall of famers Wayne Gretzky and Mark Messier. No one has ever done anything like that to those guys before!

    "And you know why?! Because I'm the 'World's Greatest Athlete'! That's why!

    "There's not one other athlete on the planet who could have done what I just did! And the reason they couldn't is because they aren't the greatest!

    "All the wrestlers in WCW better be paying attention to me! They'd all better realize that they're gonna be facing the best of them all when they step in the ring with Terry Taylor! Not one of the best! The best!

    "So, all you WCW stars better get ready! Because the 'World's Greatest Athlete' is headed your way!

    "See you soon!"

    Taylor skated out of the picture as the video faded to black.)

    (Announcers discussed the Taylor promo video. Then sent it backstage.)

    (Backstage: Scott Hudson.

    Hudson: "This is Scott Hudson in the WCW Interview Center.

    "My guest at this time is 'Million Dollar' Bill."

    Bill walked into the interview area in his ring attire.

    Bill was carrying a bottle with him.

    Hudson: "Looks like you've got an adult beverage there."

    Bill: "Only the best for a millionaire, Hudson! This is a bottle of Dom Peringnon!"

    Bill took a swig from the bottle and let some of it run down his chin. Bill started laughing.

    Hudson: "I thought rich people were supposed to be classy."

    Bill: "I'm all class, man! Want a swig?!"

    Bill held the bottle out.

    Hudson: "Uh... No thanks."

    Bill: "You're so middle class, Hudson!"

    Bill took another swig from the bottle.

    Hudson: "Bill, tonight you're facing Sid Vicious in our main event. What are your thoughts head..."

    Bill: "You know who needs to be guzzling this bottle of Dom?! Sid Vicious, that's who!"

    Hudson: "Sid Vi... Why?"

    Bill: "It will help him cope with the mental and physical pain he's gonna suffer at my hands tonight!

    "The physical pain is from the beating he's gonna receive from me and the mental pain is what he's gonna feel after I beat him!"

    Hudson: "I think you're getting a little ahead of yourself. Sid's a pretty tough customer in the ring."

    Bill: "Sid Vicious...is a big, stupid dummy! Guys who look like him usually don't have much going for them in the brains department! I'm just gonna wait for him to do something really stupid during the match and then I've got him!"

    Hudson: "How much of that stuff have you had to drink tonight?"

    Bill: "What do you... Oh... I get it! You think I'd have to be drunk to say these things about my match with Sid tonight, huh?! I am 100 percent sober! I know exactly what I'm saying! And I'll know exactly what I'm doing when I wrestle him!

    "Sid Vicious is big! He's dumb! And he's going down in flames to 'Million Dollar' Bill!"

    Bill took a swig from his bottle and spat the champagne in the air. Hudson quickly tried to cover up but still got wet as Bill walked out of the interview area.

    Hudson: "Thanks, you jerk!"

    Bill (off-camera): "You're welcome!")

    Match 2 (Non-Title)
    'Dirty' Dick Slater (TVC) w/ Mgr. Sherri Martel vs. Brian Blair

    (Blair was already in the ring and announced.

    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 around 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 called for the bell.

    The two men came out and circled one another and Slater caught Blair with a kick to the gut and then drove a rapid-fire series of elbow smashes into the back of Blair's neck. Slater then nailed Blair with a suplex followed by a quick stomp. Slater backed into the ropes and came off with a flying knee drop to the chest but Blair rolled out of the way and Slater crashed knee-first into the mat. Slater grabbed his knee. Both men down. Ref counting. Both men up and Slater facing away from Blair. Blair charged in and popped Slater with a dropkick to the back and the impact sent Slater flying over the top rope and crashing to the floor. Blair stayed in the ring and shook out the early affects of the match. Ref started the 20-count. Slater sat up on the floor and angrily pounded his fists on the floor as Sherri came over to talk with Dick and calm him down. Blair waiting for Slater to get back into the ring. Slater to his feet on the floor and Sherri had final words for her man followed by a slap on the ass. Slater climbed up on the apron and quickly climbed into the ring and charged after Blair but Blair ole'd Slater and Slater turned and Blair caught Slater with a series of head shots. Blair went to whip Slater into the ropes but Slater reversed and caught Blair coming off with a back elbow to the chest. Blair crashed to the mat. Slater snapped Blair up and went to whip Blair into the ropes but Blair reversed and caught Slater coming off with a leg lariat. Slater crashed to the mat. Blair for the cover. 1...2... Slater kicked out. Both men up and Blair stunned Slater with a kick to the gut. Blair whipped Slater into the ropes and nailed Slater coming off with a dropkick. Slater crashed to the mat and rolled out on the apron. Sherri ran over and started talking to the stunned Slater. Ref counting. Slater made it to his feet on the apron and started to climb back into the ring. Blair went to go after Slater but Slater climbed back out on the apron and was holding the top rope. Ref ordered Blair to stand back and Blair did so. Ref started counting. Slater looked out at the crowd and started yelling at some hecklers. As Slater was doing that, Blair came over, grabbed the top rope and catapaulted Slater back into the ring. Slater quickly to his knees and begging off as Blair moved in and stood over him. Blair pulled Slater up by the hair and charged over and slammed Slater's head into the top buckle. The impact sent Slater bouncing up and back. Slater staggered off. Blair moved in, spun Slater around and popped Slater with a series of head shots. Blair went to whip Slater into the ropes but Slater reversed and looked to catch Blair coming off with a backdrop but Blair leapfrogged Slater and spun around and caught Slater in the sleeper. Sherri going ape shit at ringside. Blair with the hold firmly locked in. Slater desperately seeking an escape. In desperation, Slater was able to lunge over, drop down and Blair's head crashed into the top buckle. Slater was freed from the hold. Blair leaned front-first against the buckles. Slater caught Blair with a hard slap to the side of the ribs and then repeatedly slammed Blair's head into the top buckle in rapid-fire fashion. Blair staggered out of the corner by the ropes. Slater came up behind Blair and popped Blair with forearm smash to the back. Slater whipped Blair into the ropes and caught Blair coming off with a knee to the gut. Blair crashed to the mat. Slater snapped Blair up and nailed Blair with a gutwrench suplex. Slater backed into the ropes and came off with a flying knee drop to the chest that connected. Slater for the cover and hooked the leg. 1...2...thr... Blair kicked out. Many in the crowd cheered. Slater to his feet and waited for Blair to get up. A shaky Blair up and Slater moved in blasted Blair with a trio of forearms to the side of the head. Blair stunned. Slater grabbed Blair and nailed Blair with his front Russian legsweep finisher. Slater covered Blair and hooked the leg. 1...2...3! Ref called for the bell as the crowd booed.

    Slater up and the ref raised his hand in victory as Sherri climbed into the ring and congratulated her man. Ref went over and got the belt from Craig Johnson and went over and handed it to Slater. Slater had a few words with Sherri and Sherri went over to Johnson and said something to Johnson and then rudely yanked the ring mic out of Johnson's hand.

    Sherri took the mic over and handed it to Slater.

    Slater: "Brian Blair, you put up quite a fight tonight. I gotta give you credit. I underestimated you and it almost came back to bite me right in the ass.

    "But, in the end, you lost, Brian. And there's no shame whatsoever in losing to Tru TV Champion Dick Slater."

    Sherri applauded Slater's remarks as the crowd started booing.

    Slater: "There's a reason I hold this title and a guy like Brian Blair doesn't. And that reason is simple...there's no one else like me. Nobody knows how to bring it in crunch time like I do. You all just saw that Blair couldn't do it. Scott Irwin, he couldn't put me away and win this belt for a second time. No, I finished him off.

    "Sgt. Slaughter. Ha! Sarge is home nursing that damaged neck of his. And you're looking at the man who did that damage."

    Sherri started applauding again to more boos.

    Slater: "Injuring Sarge's neck was one of the greatest accomplishments of my career. I am proud of what I did to him.

    "And Marty Jannetty...well...ol' Marty needs to learn who he can really trust in this sport. Me and Sherri exposed him for the gullible dupe he is at 'Season's Beatings'."

    Sherri leaned into the mic.

    Sherri: "We did, babe! And that was so fun! Marty Jannetty is just one big walking sucker! Marty the moron! Hahahaha!"

    Slater: "Hahahaha! Good one, my vicious little vixen!"

    Sherri and Slater looked into each other's eyes and then embraced.

    Sherri (in a sultry voice): "You know what I want to do right now?"

    Slater (laughed a naughty, sinister laugh): "Oh, I can guess, doll. I can guess."

    Sherri (sultry voice): "Yeah, lover. You know."

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

    Schiavone: "It's Tony Garea of the championship committee."

    Garea: "Dick Slater...I know what you're gonna be doing in two weeks."

    Slater released Sherri and looked over at Garea.

    Slater: "What was that, Garea?! Can't you see I was having a moment with my lady?!"

    Garea: "That moment would not have been suitable for this program. Maybe 'World's Grossest Moments' or something..."

    Slater: "You obviously have something you want to say to me! Spit it out!"

    Garea: "Very perceptive of you, Dick.

    "But before I get to my announcement, let's take a look at this video clip from 'Season's Beatings'."

    Video aired from the Slater -Jannetty TV Championship match from 'Season's Beatings.

    VIDEO:

    Jannetty stomped his foot three times on the mat as the crowd cheered. Slater slowly making it to his feet with the aid of the ropes. As Jannetty waited to pulverize Slater with his superkick finisher, Sherri climbed into the ring behind Jannetty. Sherri took her purse and bashed Jannetty in the back of the head with it. Jannetty crashed face-first to the mat and was laying there practically lifeless.

    Madden: "Sherri must use some heavy lipstick!"

    Schiavone: "Please! That thing is loaded!"

    Slater now on his feet. He walked away from the ropes and looked at Sherri and then a wicked smile creased both of their faces as the crowd booed. Sherri and Slater briefly hugged and she gave Slater a quick kiss on the lips and then Sherri left the ring for the floor.


    Slater and Sherri shown laughing in the ring.

    Garea: "Think that's funny, huh?"

    Slater: "I do!"

    Sherri: "Me, too! Classic stuff! They should just play it on a loop!"

    Slater and Sherri laughed.

    Garea: "The video showed how Jannetty lost that match. If Sherri doesn't hit him with that loaded purse then Jannetty might be the Tru TV Champion today."

    Slater: "But he's not, is he, Garea! I am! You and the rest of the championship committee forced me into a situation where I had to defend the TV Title twice at 'Season's Beatings' and I thought up a brilliant strategy for that night that worked to perfection and you and the other suits are still bothered by being outsmarted by me! Just admit it!"

    Garea: "I would admit it if that was true.

    "But here's what I wanted to say to you. On the January 23rd episode of 'Mayhem', Dick Slater, you will be defending the Tru TV Championship against Marty Jannetty one more time!"

    Crowd cheered the news.

    Slater: "Listen to these fans, Garea! You're giving these fans out here false hope! I always cover my bases when game planning for a match! I'll have every angle covered for this one with Jannetty in two weeks! I am the most brilliant ring strategist in pro wrestling today! I proved that at 'Season's Beatings'!

    "Marty's gonna come to the ring that night all excited thinking he's got a chance to become the new Tru TV Champ! But it's a mirage, Garea! He's walking out of the ring with what he'll walk into the ring with that night...nothing! He can't out-think 'Dirty' Dick!"

    Garea: "We'll see about that, Slater."

    Sherri: "Bring...it...on!"

    Garea: "Just remember, even the best game plans have some holes in them. And if Jannetty is able to expose one of your weak spots, you may very well be the former Tru TV Champion on January 23rd."

    Slater and Sherri looked at Garea and Garea briefly looked at them before turning and heading to the back as the segment ended.

    WINNER: Slater - Pinfall - Front Russian Legsweep - 6:43)

    (Announcers discussed the Tru TV Championship match being made for the 1/23 edition of 'Mayhem'. Hyped still to come: Sid Vicious vs. 'Million Dollar' Bill; T; and more!

    Hudson: "My guest at this time in the WCW Interview Center is Sid Vicious."

    Vicious walked into the interview area in his ring attire.

    Hudson: "Sid, tonight you're facing 'Million Dollar' Bill in our main event..."

    Sid: "Scott Hudson! I heard 'Million Dollar' Bill's interview earlier tonight!

    "He may be rich! But 'Million Dollar' Bill is living proof that one thing money can't buy is common sense!

    "He's gonna step into the ring with me tonight and I'm gonna grab him and powerbomb his ass through the mat! Then he can put some of his millions to good use to pay for his hospital bills!"

    Sid stormed out of the interview area.

    Hudson: "Sid Vicious...he gets right to the point. And he faces 'Million Dollar' Bill in our main event later tonight.")

    (Announcers intro'd video from last week of Tony Garea of the championship committee.

    VIDEO:

    Johnson: "With me in the ring right now is Tony Garea of the WCW Championship Committee."

    Garea was in a suit.

    Johnson: "Tony, after what went down in the tag team title match a couple of weeks ago, we hear you have some major news regarding the belts."

    Garea: "I do, Craig.

    "Two weeks ago, we saw a wild match between the tag team champions Don Muraco and Jimmy Snuka and the challengers Los Lobos. It wasn't so much a wrestling match as it was a brutal, blood-letting of a fight. Both teams tore into each other with an almost animal-like ferocity. It's safe to say that both teams might still be feeling the affects of that match today because that's how hard-hitting it was.

    "We also saw the champions intentionally get themselves disqualified when it appeared they were on the verge of defeat. Los Lobos made a very strong showing in the match and we believe they proved themselves more than worthy of another shot at the titles."

    Johnson: "When will the match be taking place?"

    Garea: "The championship committee has decided that the match will take place on 'Mayhem' in two weeks."

    Crowd cheered.

    Johnson: "So, that's the January 16th episode of 'Mayhem'."
    )

    (In-ring:

    'Will The Wolf Survive' played and out came Los Lobos (Tito Santana and Manny Fernandez) to a solid crowd response. They were in street clothes and each had a mic. The pair slapped hands with fans on the way to the ring and climbed in and acknowledged the crowd,

    Theme from the original 'Hawaii Five-O' played and out came the tag champs Don Muraco and Jimmy Snuka to mainly boos but also some cheers. Both men were in street clothes and each man had a title belt slung over his shoulder. Both men had mics. The pair made their way to the ring and climbed in.

    Both sides walked around in the ring and were eyeing one another.

    Muraco: "Los Lobos! First of all, congratulations are in order!"

    Santana: "For what?"

    Muraco: "Well, millions of your kind are about to get amnesty. The good news about that is now they can leech off the system legally instead of illegally."

    Muraco and Snuka chuckled. But the laughing party didn't last long as Tito and Fernandez both dropped their mics and charged over and tore into the champs with punches as the crowd cheered. Snuka and Muraco both dropped their mics and title belts.

    Tito and Fernandez pummeled the champs with punches and then Tito whipped Snuka into the ropes and caught Snuka coming off with his double flying forearm smash finisher and Snuka crashed to the mat and Fernandez whipped Muraco into the ropes and caught Muraco coming off with his forearm smash to the head (the Axe) finisher and Muraco crashed to the mat. Tito covered Snuka and Fernandez covered Muraco. Fernandez symbolically counted the pinfall by slapping the mat three times as the crowd counted along. Crowd erupted after Fernandez's third slap of the mat.

    Fernandez and Tito up. Muraco and Snuka laid out on the mat. Tito and Fernandez went over and picked up the titles and each man went to a corner and stood on the middle buckle. Fernandez raised the belt he had in the air with one hand and Tito raised his with both hands to more cheers. The pair then dropped back to the mat and Fernandez asked for the ring mic from Craig Johnson and got it.

    Tito and Fernandez walked over to the still down Muraco and Snuka.

    Fernandez: "Snuka and Muraco! The next time we raise these belts will be when we win them next week!"

    More crowd cheers as Tito dropped the belt on Snuka's chest and, since Muraco was rolled over on his side, Fernandez laid the belt next to Muraco. Los Lobos then left the ring like conquering heroes and slapped hands with some fans on the way back up the aisle.)

    (Announcers discussed the startling events that just unfolded between the champs and Los Lobos.)

    (Announcers intro'd video of pre-recorded comments from Ric Flair and Paul Orndorff.

    VIDEO:

    Video opened with a shot of Ric Flair standing in the living room of his home in Charlotte, NC. Behind Flair was a trophy case with awards and belts from his wrestling career. Flair was in street clothes.

    Flair: "Paul Orndorff! Brother, the big question is where do we stand as a team right now?!

    "We have signed several match contracts to wrestle as a team in 2018! We are obligated to fulfill those commitments!

    "The big question is, Orndorff, are you with me?! Are you gonna be a team player from here on out?! Are you gonna do the right thing, pal!

    "Lately, your behavior has been erratic to say the least! I don't know if I can trust you at all! And as a team we've got to be able to trust one another! We've got to be on the same page in that ring or we will go down in flames! That's not something I even like to think about! I don't like losing! But we have got to stick together! We need unity!

    "Guys like Larry Zbysko and Scott Hall would love to continue mind (bleep)ing us and trying to keep us off balance! We cannot allow that to happen!

    "We win together or we lose together! Orndorff! What happens to us as a team is all up to you! Whoo!"

    Picture flipped and Orndorff was standing next to the pool at his home in Tampa, FL. He was shirtless and in swim trunks and flip flops.

    Orndorff: "You know...

    Orndorff chuckled and shook his head.

    Orndorff: "Many people consider conspiracy theorists to be tin foil hat wearing goofballs.

    "Ric Flair has cobbled together a conspiracy theory that I've somehow, for no specific reason, got it in for him.

    "I'm here to make it clear right now that I am not conspiring against Ric in any way, shape or form. All these strange things that have happened between me and Ric lately, it's just coincidence, that's all. Sometimes weird things just happen and who can really explain them?

    "Ric's got to realize that I have nothing against him and I hope he has nothing against me. Yeah, we've pissed each other off on more than one occasion. That stuff happens when two people are around each other a lot. But we're a team. And we need to start acting like it.

    "WCW has a solid roster in the tag team division. And any personal issues we have with each other need to be left in the locker room when it's match time.

    "Ric, I need to know if you're really a team player, brother. I have to know right where you stand. I don't want to dissolve this partnership. But, if we can't get our act together, then we both just need to go our separate ways.

    "We've had a good run. We've beaten a lot of excellent teams since we joined forces.

    "I'm gonna do my part to keep the team together. But Ric, just be a man about it if you want to end things between us and let me know face-to-face like a real man would. Don't be a saboteur."

    Video faded to black.)

    Match 3
    Sid Vicious vs. 'Million Dollar' Bill

    ('Money' by Pink Floyd played and out came 'Million Dollar' Bill to loud boos. He was wearing a silver and black tuxedo-like satin jacket with tails. On the back it said 'MDB' in silver lettering with black trim and several silver '$' signs with black trim spread all over the back. He had on a silver bow tie. He was wearing silver and black leg-length tights with the word 'Millionaire' written across the back of the tights in silver lettering with black trim and silver boots with a black $ sign on the outside of each boot. He was carrying his briefcase containing his Battle Royal winnings. Bill made his way to the ring and climbed in.

    Bill handed his briefcase to the ref and barked at the ref to handle it with care. Ref then handed the briefcase off to Craig Johnson, who sat it on the timekeeper's table.

    '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.

    Ref called for the bell.

    Bill charged out of his corner and laid into Sid with a series of head and body punches that did not affect Sid. Sid responded by grabbing Bill by the throat and nailed Bill with a chokeslam. Bill down and convulsing on the mat. Sid snapped Bill up, whipped Bill into the ropes and caught Bill coming off with a press slam. Bill crashed to the mat and got up next to the ropes. Sid charged over and went to nail Bill with a running clothesline but Bill backdropped Sid over the top rope and Sid crashed to the floor. Bill walked away from the ropes and quickly regained his bearings in the ring as the ref started the 20-count. Bill then blew by the ref and left the ring for the floor as Sid was getting up. Bill grabbed Sid and slammed Sid's head into the ring apron three times and then threw Sid head-first into the ring post. Sid staggered off. Ref counting. Bill came up behind Sid and jumped on Sid's back. It looked like Bill was riding a bucking bronco as Sid tried to throw Bill off. Sid was able to maneuver around and back Bill into the post. Bill lost his grip on the hold. Bill leaned against the post as Sid walked off a few steps and leaned forward and placed his hands on the ring apron as he quickly regained his bearings. Bill charged at Sid and Sid caught Bill with a hip toss on the floor. Sid quickly rolled in and out of the ring to break the 20-count. Bill up and Sid caught Bill with a boot to the face. Bill crashed to the floor. Sid snapped Bill up and whipped Bill into the ringside barricade on an opposite side of the ring. Ref counting. Sid charged at Bill and went to nail Bill with a running clothesline but Bill moved and Sid slammed front-first into the barricade. Sid extricated himself from the barricade, turned and walked right into a bicycle kick to the face from Bill. Sid fell back against the barricade. Bill quickly rolled in and out of the ring to break the count. Bill moved in and went to punch Sid but Sid blocked the punch try and laid into Bill with a tiro of big head shots and then slammed Bill's head twice into the top of the ringside barricade. Ref counting. Sid grabbed Bill, hoisted Bill on his shoulder and looked the ram Bill's head into the ring post but Bill wriggled free from Sid's grasp, dropped to his feet behind Sid and shoved Sid at the post and Sid's shoulder collided with the post. Sid staggered off holding his shoulder. Ref counting. Bill came up behind Sid and pounded Sid with a series of forearm smashes to the back. Bill threw Sid back into the ring.

    Sid up and Bill stunned Sid with a kick to the gut. Bill whipped Sid into the ropes and caught Sid coming off with a flying tackle. Sid crashed to the mat. Bill backed up as Sid got up and Bill charged in and popped Sid with another flying tackle. Sid back down. Bill grabbed Sid's left leg and, after a brief struggle, Bill turned Sid over into a single leg crab. Sid in pain in the ring. Crowd rooting for Sid. Sid started inching towards the ropes as Bill cinched up on the hold. Sid stopped dead in his tracks. Sid not giving up. Sid started crawling toward the ropes again while locked in the hold and was able to get close enough to grab the bottom rope and force a break in the hold. Ref ordered Bill back as Sid got to his feet. Sid up and Bill quickly moved in and kicked Sid in the left knee area. Sid staggered off in pain. Bill moved in and caught Sid with another kick to the left knee area. Sid hurtin' for certain. Bill grabbed Sid and went to whip Sid into the ropes but Sid reversed and caught Bill coming off with a spinebuster as the crowd popped. Both men down. Ref counting. Sid up and hobbling on his left leg. Bill to his feet and moved in looking to nail Sid with a double sledge to the top of the head but Sid caught Bill with a couple of kicks to the gut.

Bill up and turned and Sid charged in and nearly decapitated Bill with a running clothesline. Bill crashed to the mat. Sid snapped Bill up and nailed Bill with his powerbomb finisher. Sid for the cover and hooked the leg. 1...2...3! Ref called for the bell as the crowd cheered wildly.
