    Re: World Class Wrestling


    IT'S A SPECIAL WRESTLEMANIA EDITION OF

    OLD SCHOOL WRESTLING CINEMA!!!


    Normally, I won't post vids this close together.

    But with it being Wrestlemania weekend, I've decided to turn the clock back and take a look at two matches from Wrestlemania 2.

    The show featured three good matches and two of them are posted here.

    First, it's legit brothers Terry & Dory (aka, Hoss) Funk vs. Tito Santana & Junkyard Dog.

    This tag match was my favorite match of the first two Wrestlemanias.

    Clip 1: http://dai.ly/x5chbin

    The second video comes to us from Saturday Night's Main Event in March '86.

    It's Hulk Hogan defending the WWF World Title against Don Muraco. This is the match where the angle occurs to set up the Hogan-Bundy match at WM2.

    Clip 2: http://dai.ly/x20qbl5

    Finally, it's Hulk Hogan defending the WWF World Title against King Kong Bundy inside the steel at WM2!

    Clip 3: http://dai.ly/x3aq9lq

    ENJOY THESE MATCHES AS WE HEAD INTO PRO WRESTLING'S BIGGEST EVENT OF THE YEAR...WRESTLEMANIA!

    Re: World Class Wrestling

    I've fallen way behind on my writing.

    Hope to have the next 'Mayhem' posted by no later than this weekend.

    In order to try and get caught up, except for any major shows, the next several episodes of 'Mayhem'
    will feature only match re-caps. Storylines and promos will still be laid out in full.

    Gonna try and crank out quite a few in relatively short order if I can.

    Goal is to be caught up by May or June.

    WCW MAYHEM - EP. 147 - EL PASO, TX - DON HASKINS CENTER - 3-13-18 (Taped)

    (Show Intro)

    (Crowd Shots/Pyro)

    (Announcers Tony Schiavone and Mark Madden welcomed viewers and ran down the program: Main Event: The Skyscrapers Re-Unite! Skyscrapers vs. Paul Orndorff & Scott Hall of The Firm; 'World's Greatest Athlete' Terry Taylor makes an appearance; Bret Hart vs. Mr. Anderson; and more. Then sent it to the ring.)

    (In-ring:

    'Also Sprach Zarathustra' https://youtu.be/X6RoasSoLK0 played and out came Ric Flair to a strong ovation. Flair was in street clothes and had a mic. Flair made his way to the ring and climbed in. Flair walked around for a moment and was all business. He had a somber look on his face.

    Flair: "The suspicion I've had for months turned out to be true at 'Spring Breakout'. I knew that Paul Orndorff was colluding with Scott Hall and Larry Zbysko.

    "Last week, those three came out here and bragged to the world about why they did it. They even gave themselves a name...The Firm.

    "I think a better name would be the Three Assholes."

    Crowd cheered.

    Flair: "Paul Orndorff said that his goal in wrestling right now is to make my life a living hell.

    "But I'm here to tell you something...

    "I am not going to back down from The Firm! Orndorff, Zbysko and Hall, I'm not going anywhere! I'm not running! You guys hear me?! The 'Nature Boy' is here to fight!

    "And it's a fight that you want and you will get it from me! Whoo!"

    Crowd did the whoo and cheered.

    Flair: "I wasn't surprised one bit by what went down at 'Spring Breakout'! I could see what was going on but I just couldn't prove it! And then those three proved my point for me!

    "Now, here I stand! And I'm gonna throw out a challenge right now! I challenge any member of The Firm to a match next week!"

    More cheers.

    Flair: "Just one of you in The Firm stand up and be a man and sign on the dotted line and let's get down to business in this ring!

    "I've said it before: I'm the dirtiest player in the game! And The Firm is gonna see how dirty I can get starting next week if they take me up on my offer!"

    Flair started walking around in the ring as the crowd cheered.

    Voice: "Hey, Flair! You wanna match with a member of The Firm?!"

    Crowd booed as Larry Zbysko came walking to the aisle in street clothes with mic in hand. Flair looked on as Zbysko climbed into the ring. Zbysko wlaked right up to Flair.

    Zbysko: "I accept your challenge, Ric! We have along history together here in WCW! It dates back to day one of the promotion! We were the first main event on 'Mayhem'! Remember that?!"

    Flair: "Sure do! I remember it well because I beat you that night!"

    Crowd cheered. Zbysko looked out at the crowd.

    Zbysko: "You may have beaten me that night! But I beat you to become the first WCW World Champion! Do you remember that?!"

    Flair: "How could I forget! You won that night...with a little outside help if you'll recall!"

    Zbysko: "Bottom line! I beat you to become the first WCW World Champ! That's in the record book forever!"

    Flair: "You know what else is in the record book?! That I got payback and beat you for the title a few months later! And, try as you might, pal, you were never able to regain the title from me!

    "Where are your partners in The Firm?!"

    Zbysko: "They've got a big match later tonight against the Skyscrapers! Paul and Scott are preparing for that, Ric! And they're gonna take care of business tonight like I'm gonna take care of you next week!"

    Zbysko started walking around in the ring and maneuvered around so Flair was now facing away from the entrance aisle.

    Zbysko: "You think things were bad for you before, Ric, you haven't seen the worst of it! Not by a longshot! The Firm is gonna make you wish you never chose wrestling as a career!

    "Like Orndorff said last week, when we're finally through with you, you're gonna wind up in an insane asylum in a straight jacket talking to the bugs crawling on the floor in your padded cell!

    "The Firm is bound together by one thing...our hatred of you!

    "What do you think of that, huh?! Whoo!"

    Flair looked down and then hauled off and smacked Zbysko hard across the face. Zbysko dropped his mic. Crowd cheering. Flair dropped his mic and grabbed Zbysko by the front of his shirt with both hands and started violently shaking Zbysko and was yelling at Zbysko.

    Flair picked up on a mic.

    Flair: "What do I think?! What do I think, you son of a bitch!"

    Flair drove Zbysko by the ropes and was still shaking Zbysko by the front of the shirt.

    Crowd mainly booed as Orndorff and Hall, both in their tights and boots, charged down the aisle, hit the ring, came up behind Flair and jumped Flair from behind. Hall and Orndorff pounded on Flair as Zbysko quickly straightened out his shirt and joined in the beat down. The three beat Flair down to the mat and then stomped away on him. Zbysko snapped Flair up as Hall and Orndorff looked on and Zbysko hoisted Flair up and blasted Flair with his brain buster finisher. Flair laid out. Members of the WCW security team charged down the aisle and hit the ring and Hall, Orndorff and Zbysko bailed from the ring to the safety of the floor as most of the crowd booed but some cheered. A couple of security members checked on Flair as the other four security members stood watch in the ring to make sure The Firm didn't climb back in to inflict more damage.

    Schiavone said they had to go to a commercial break.)

    (Commercials)

    (Back from commercial, Flair was slowly walking back up the aisle with the members of the WCW security team surrounding him. Flair was holding the back of his neck.)

    More info: Visit the WCW website!)

    Match 1
    'Hitman' Bret Hart vs. Mr. Anderson

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

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

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

    'Hart Attack' https://youtu.be/Zynz3S60esQ 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.

    Bret had control early in the match before Anderson reversed a Bret attempt to whip Anderson into the ropes and caught Bret coming off across the shoulders and blasted Bret with a fireman's carry slam (Wasteland). Anderson then controlled the match for the next couple of minutes before Bret fought his way back into the battle and it became a see-saw affair. Both men had some pin tries but neither could put the other away.

    At the end of the match, the men were still battling back-and-forth. Anderson got the upper hand on Bret with some head shots. Anderson whipped Bret into the ropes and caught Bret coming off with a kick to the gut followed by and arm trap swinging neckbreaker. Anderson for the cover. 1...2... Bret kicked out. Anderson snapped Bret up and whipped Bret into the buckles. Anderson charged in on Bret but Bret moved and Anderson slammed front-first into the buckles. Anderson peeled himself off the buckles and turned and walked into a flurry of head shots from Bret. Bret blasted Anderson with a jumping vertical suplex. Bret went and mounted the middle buckle behind Anderson. Anderson up and turned and Bret came off with a second rope clothesline that dropped Anderson. Bret grabbed Anderson's legs and turned Anderson over into his sharpshooter finisher but Anderson found the strength to quickly make it to the ropes and grab the bottom rope to force a break in the hold. Anderson to his feet and Bret moved in on Anderson and Anderson stunned Bret with a knee to the gut. Anderson caught Bret with a second knee to the gut and then pounded away on Bret with fists and forearms. Anderson went to whip Bret into the ropes but Bret reversed and caught Anderson coming off with an inverted atomic drop. Anderson crashed to the mat holding his goods. Bret grabbed Anderson's legs and Anderson offered no resistance as Bret turned Anderson over into his sharpshooter finisher. Anderson was only in the hold a few seconds before tapping out to the delight of the crowd.

    Bret released the hold and the ref raised Bret's hand in victory as the cheering continued.

    WINNER: Bret Hart - Submission - Sharpshooter - 9:32)

    (Announcers discussed Bret beating Anderson. Hyped still to come: Hall & Orndorff vs. the re-united Skyscrapers; and more. Then sent it backstage.)

    (Backstage: Scott Hudson.

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

    "My guests at this time are The Firm: Scott Hall, Paul Orndorff and Larry Zbysko."

    The trio walked into the interview area. Hall and Orndorff were in their ring attire and Zbysko was in street clothes.

    Hudson: "Well, you guys showed your true character again tonight when you once again ganged up on Ric Flair and assaulted him."

    Orndorff: "We did do that, didn't we?"

    Hall: "We sure did."

    Zbysko: "Yeah."

    Hudson: "Larry, you must be really proud of dropping Flair on his head with that brain buster of yours?"

    Zbysko: "That was a work of art, Hudson! Did you see how perfectly I executed that brain buster?! The only thing I'm disappointed in is that I didn't break Flair's neck!"

    Hall: "Hey! Could you imagine Flair with a broken neck, man?!"

    Orndorff: "Hahaha! When we're through with him he's gonna wish he had one!"

    Zbysko: "Actually, Paul, he's gonna wish he'd never been born! Hahahaha!"

    Hudson: "You guys are really, really sick.

    "I don't think I've ever seen anything like this in all my years in this business. You have stated that your goal for the forseeable future in this sport is to drive Ric Flair insane! Unbelievable! You want the man to have a nervous breakdown! Jesus!"

    Orndorff: "I'm gonna be the man who drives the ambulance that carries Ric to the nut house! I can't wait for that day! I wanna take pictures of them putting Flair in that straight jacket and throwing him that padded room and locking the door! That's gonna be...awesome!"

    Hall: "Whoo!"

    Zbysko then a did a brief mock Ric Flair strut.

    Hudson: "Let's change the subject for a moment.

    "Tonight, the Skyscrapers, Sid Vicious and Dan Spivey, re-unite to battle Paul Orndorff and Scott Hall of The Firm in our main event. What are you thou..."

    Orndorff: "The Skyscrapers may be re-united! But it ain't gonna feel so good for them!"

    Hall: "I love when 'Mr. Wonderful' puts his own spin on song lyrics! Haha!

    "The SKyscrapers are facing a human wrecking ball tonight in Hall and Orndorff! Those two big boys are gonna fall like one of those big biuldings when it's demolished! It's gonna be a..."

    WHAM! A chair slammed into the back of Larry Zbysko. Zbysko stumbled forward as an enraged Flair made his way into the picture. Flair popped Zbysko with another chair shot to the back. Hall and Orndorff jumped in and started pounding the hell out of Flair. Flair dropped the chair. Zbysko quickly recovered and joined in the beat down. Hall and Orndorff then threw Flair into a stack of chairs. Flair crashed into the chairs and Flair and the chairs crashed to the floor and some of the chairs landed on Flair. Flair down in the chairs as six members of WCW security charged into the picture. The Firm backed off.

    Zbysko: "You WCW rent-a-cops go ahead and scrape that jackass off the floor!"

    The Firm left the area as WCW security once again checked on Flair.

    Hudson: "The Firm is out of control! There's really nothing else to say about it!"

    Hudson looked on in disbelief as the picture faded to black.)

    (Pics aired from the Randy Savage-Terry Taylor match at 'Spring Breakout' and showed Taylor beating Savage.)

    (In-ring: Craig Johnson.

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

    "Would you please welcome my guest at this time...the 'World's Greatest Athlete' Terry Taylor!"

    The 'World's Greatest Athlete' theme https://youtu.be/dKaJfLlE6UU played and out came Terry Taylor to pretty strong boos. Taylor was in a blue sport coat, gray slacks, white dress shirt, blue tie, blue dress shoes and wearing glasses. Taylor made his way to the ring and climbed in.

    Johnson: "Terry Taylor. I have to admit that you scored an impressive victory over Randy Savage at 'Spring Breakout'."

    Taylor: "Thank you, Craig, for those kind words. It's a pleasure to be out here with you tonight."

    More boos.

    Taylor: "I would kindly ask these fans out here to shut up so I can speak."

    Booing grew louder. Taylor spun around in the ring looking at the crowd.

    Taylor: "The rudeness of you people is showing the world why America is falling apart. Would you people please show an ounce of class and zip it so I can continue to speak."

    More boos.

    Taylor: "This...is...typical. People try to drown me out because they know what I'm saying is the truth. And most Americans today hate the truth!"

    Booing continued.

    Taylor: "If this is the way you ingrates wish to behave, then I shall shout over you!"

    Louder boos.

    Taylor: "Craig, Randy Savage is one of the best athletes in our sport today! But he's not THE best! That title belongs to me and that's why I'm called the 'World's Greatest Athlete'!

    "I tip my proverbial hat to Savage for giving me quite a match at 'Spring Breakout'! But his accolades end there! The bottom line is: when push came to shove, my athleticism shined through the adversity and I was not only able to beat Savage, I beat him with my 'World's Greatest Finale' finisher!

    "You see, even a small difference in athletic ability makes all the difference in the world! And that difference is why I won and Savage was the big loser in our match!

    "And Savage is just the start! I will be exposing all the top wrestlers in WCW in the weeks and months to come! When you're the 'World's Greatest Athlete', you find your opposition's weakness, exploit it and put him down for the count!

    "It doesn't matter who they put in the ring with me, Craig! I will show everyone what separates me from all others..."

    Loud boos and some trash thrown at the ring.

    Johnson: "These fans don't seem too happy with you."

    Taylor: "You people...I'm growing tired of the act! You don't deserve to hear anything else the 'World's Greatest Athete' has to say! This interview is over!"

    Taylor turned and left the ring and dropped to the floor to more boos and headed back up the aisle.

    Johnson: "That was Terry Taylor. Can he really run the table against the top stars in WCW? We'll just have to wait and see.

    "Tony and Mark.")

    (Announcers discussed the Taylor interview and him storming off. Then sent it backstage.)

    (Backstage: Scott Hudson.

    Close-up of Hudson.

    Hudson: "I'm standing here in the WCW Interview Center with my guests at this time...the re-united Skyscrapers."

    Camera panned back to show Sid Vicious and Dan Spivey standing on either side of Hudson and in their ring attire.

    Hudson: "First of all, it's great to see the Skyscrapers back together."

    Spivey: "When we went our separate ways to wrestles as singles it was never gonna be a permanent thing! We always planned on getting back together one day!"

    Vicious: "Me and Danny are each dangerous on our own! But put us together and we're doubly dangerous for any team that crosses our path!"

    Hudson: "You guys are facing two members of The Firm, Paul Orndorff and Scott Hall, in our main event tonight.

    "As these guys have shown as recently as tonight, they're capable of almost anything. And they'll most likely have Larry Zbysko in their corner."

    Vicious: "That's great! Zbysko! Go ahead and meddle in our business tonight and see what happens to ya!"

    Spivey: "Hall and Orndorff! This is the 'Scrapers first match together in months! And we aim to kick off our re-unification with a bang! And that bang you're gonna hear is from us kicking your butts around that ring!"

    Vicious: "You guys in The Firm seem to like pushing people around when you outnumber them! But you're lookin' at two men who aren't easily pushed around! When it comes to intimidation, we're the ones who do it best!"

    "So, you go ahead and come out with your little sack of weasel crap pal Larry Zbysko! We don't care! He's been warned to mind his own business during the match or the night will end badly for him!

    "Hall and Orndorff! You boys better be prepared for a fight because a fight's headed your way!"

    Skyscrapers walked out of the interview area.

    Hudson: "It's the re-united Skyscrapers vs. Paul Orndorff and Scott Hall of the The Firm in our main event and it's coming up next!)

    ('All Along The Watchtower' https://youtu.be/TLV4_xaYynY played and out came Scott Hall, Paul Orndorff and Larry Zbysko to a mixed crowd reaction. Hall was wearing his black satin vest with a blood print running down it, black tights with a blood print running down them and black boots with a blood print running down them. Hall also had a toothpick in his mouth. Orndorff was in a blue robe with white and silver trim and 'Orndorff' written in silver cursive lettering across the back, blue boots with white trim and the initials 'PO' on the outside of each boot. Zbysko was in street clothes.

    'Steel Monkey' https://youtu.be/5GpqlHagGJE played and out came the Skyscrapers, Sid Vicious and Dan Spivey, to a strong ovation. The pair were both in black tights and black boots. They made their way to the ring and Spivey climbed through the top and middle rope and Sid climbed over the top rope into the ring.

    Match was more a brawl than a wrestling match as the two teams slugged it out in a back-and-forth battle.

    At one point in the match, Larry Zbysko interfered and gave his team the advantage when Sid ran and went to hit the ropes and Zbysko reached into the ring and tripped up Sid and Sid went down. Sid quickly got up and looked down at Zbysko and Orndorff, the legal man in the ring for his team, had recovered enough and jumped Sid from behind.

    Not too many pin tries during the match as the teams just beat on each other.

    At the end of the match, Hall and Sid were the legal men in the ring.

    Hall had the advantage and was working Sid over in the corner and finished off his assault with a slap upside the head. Hall whipped Sid into the opposite buckles and Sid slammed into them and stumbled out of the corner. Hall grabbed Sid by the throat and nailed Sid with a chokeslam. Hall for the cover and hooked the leg. 1...2...thr... Sid kicked out. Crowd cheered. Hall caught Sid with a head shot, snapped Sid up and went to whip Sid back into the corner but Sid reversed and sent Hall into the corner and Sid followed Hall in and blasted Hall with an avalanche. Sid whipped Hall into the opposite buckles and charged in and blasted Hall with a second avalanche. Sid pulled Hall out of the corner, whipped Hall into the ropes and caught Hall coming off with a clothesline. Hall crashed to the mat. Sid briefly regained his bearings and reached down and started to hoist Hall up for his powerbomb finisher but Orndorff hit the ring and came up behind Sid and clubbed Sid across the back. Sid lost his grip on Hall. Spivey hit the ring and went to go after Orndorff but the ref intercepted Spivey and ordered Spivey back to his corner. As Spivey and the ref were distracted with each other, Orndorff grabbed Sid by the wrist and dropped Sid with a short-arm clothesline. Orndorff scurried back to his corner as the ref got Spivey back out on the apron. Hall up and stomped Sid in the head. Hall snapped Sid up and nailed Sid with a fallaway slam. Sid down and Hall went over and grabbed the top rope and stomped away on Sid. Hall broke the illegal move at the ref's count of 4. Hall looked out at the crowd and wiped his hands together like he was just about finished with Sid. Hall snapped Sid up and went to whip Sid into the ropes but Sid reversed and caught Hall coming off with a spinebuster. Crowd popped. Sid up and lunged over and tagged in Spivey to a pop. Hall getting to his feet and Spivey tore into Hall with head shots. Spivey whipped Hall into the ropes and Orndorff slap tagged Hall. Ref ruled tag was legal as Hall came off the ropes and was dropped with a boot to the face. Orndorff hit the ring and swung at Spivey and missed and Spivey laid into Orndorff with head and body shots. Spivey whipped Orndorff into the corner and followed Orndorff in and blasted Orndorff with a brutal running clothesline. Orndorff staggered out of the corner and crashed to the mat. Spivey snapped Orndorff up across his shoulders and blasted Orndorff with his Olympic Slam finisher. Spivey covered Orndorff and hooked the leg. 1...2...thr... Hall had just recovered enough to move over and stomp Spivey in the head to break up the pin try. Sid hit the ring and laid waist to Hall with a big running clothesline. Hall crashed to the mat, rolled out of the ring and crashed to the floor. Crowd eating it up.

    Zbysko jumped up on the ring apron. Ref trying to get Sid out of the ring and Zbysko off the apron. Zbysko yelled at Sid. Zbysko took a swing at Sid and Sid blocked the punch try and nailed Zbysko with a series of head shots that stunned Zbysko. An unsteady Zbysko was hanging on to the top rope trying not to crash to the floor. Behind the distracted ref's back, Spivey made it to his feet. Spivey moved in and reached down to pull Orndorff to his feet when Orndorff stunned Spivey with a low-blow. Spivey fell back against the ropes holding his jewels. Orndorff up and moved in and stunned Spivey with a head shot, hoisted Spivey up and blasted Spivey with a piledriver. Orndorff covered Spivey and hooked the leg just as Sid ran Zbysko down the apron and slammed Zbysko's head into the ring bolt that connects the top buckle with the ring post. Zbysko crashed to the floor. As Sid glared down at Zbysko, ref turned and saw Orndorff covering Spivey. Ref dropped down. 1....2... Sid turned and saw what was happening and went to break up the pin try. ...3! Sid stomped Orndorff in the back a split-second too late. Ref up and called for the bell.

    Hall had recovered enough and was now on his knees on the apron. Sid was pissed at himself and then started checking on his downed partner. Orndorff to his feet and the ref raised his hand in victory. Some garbage tossed in the ring as Hall climbed in to congratulate his fellow Firm-ite. Zbysko was now up leaned against the ring apron and raised fist victoriously as the boos cascaded down.

    WINNER: Orndorff & Hall - Pinfall - Orndorff pinned Spivey with a Piledriver - 13:44)

    (Announcers discussed Orndorff and Hall of The Firm spoiling The Skyscrapers return to tag action. Then sent it backstage.)

    (Backstage: Scott Hudson.

    Hudson was standing backstage in a room that looked like a small conference room.

    Hudson: "I am standing with Ric Flair and Rob Russen of the match-making committee."

    Russen was in a suit and holding a clipboard. Flair was still in his street clothes but was clearly feeling the affects of being assaulted twice in one night. Flair was holding the back of his neck.

    Hudson: "Rob, we hear you have something you want to say to Ric."

    Russen: "Ric, earlier tonight, you said you wanted a match with Larry Zbysko of The Firm next week."

    Flair (agitated and looking down): "That's right."

    Russen: "I have here in my hand a contract for the match. Larry Zbysko signed it just before he went out to the ring with Hall and Orndorff for the main event.

    "But, before I give you this contract to sign, WCW officials would like for you to get a physical examination after what's happened to you this evening. We are concerned about your well-being right now..."

    Flair angrily grabbed the clipboard out of Russen's hand and flipped to the back page of the contract.

    Flair (growling): "Where's the line I sign on?"

    Flair found the line and angrily, quickly signed it.

    Russen: "Ric, you really need to get checked out..."

    Flair: "Shut up!"

    Flair shoved the contract in Russen's chest.

    Flair (now enraged): "I don't care if I have to crawl naked over a field of razor blades, mouse traps and broken glass to get to the ring! This match is happening next week!

    "Even if there are pieces of my brain falling out of my head from where Zbysko brain busted me earlier tonight it's not gonna stop the match! You hear me?!

    "And when that bell rings next Tuesday, I'm gonna go all Old Testament on that son of bitch!"

    Flair glared at Russen for a few tense seconds and then stormed out of the picture as an uncomfortable Russen and shocked Hudson looked on as the program faded to black.)

    Re: World Class Wrestling

    OLD SCHOOL WRESTLING CINEMA!

    This is from the early 1980's.

    It's an episode of 'Donahue' that is about pro wrestling. And it features Verne Gagne and some of the wrestlers from the American Wrestling Association (AWA).

    Good stuff!

    WCW MAYHEM - EP. 148 - DENVER, CO - MAGNESS ARENA - 3-20-18 (Live)

    (Show Intro)

    (Crowd Shots/Pyro)

    (Announcers Tony Schiavone and Mark Madden welcomed viewers and ran down the program: Ric Flair vs. Larry Zbysko of The Firm; new Tru TV Champion Sgt. Slaughter makes an appearance; Dynamite Kid vs. Davey Boy Smith; and more! Then sent it to the ring.)

    (Theme from the original 'Hawaii Five-O' https://youtu.be/MC64gKvh5R8 played and out came the former tag champs Muraco and Snuka to loud boos and some cheers. Both were in street clothes and each man had a mic. The pair made their way to the ring and climbed in.

    The pair walked around in the ring for a moment as the crowd chanted 'You lost!' and 'Los Lobos!'.

    Muraco: "You white trash fans go ahead and cheer because, mark my words, you won't be cheering for long."

    Cheering continued.

    Muraco: "Last year, that's 2017 on the non-white trash calendar, we lost the tag team titles at 'Spring Breakout' as well.

    "Jimmy, how long were we the ex-champions then?"

    Snuka briefly rubbed his chin.

    Snuka: "Ummmmmmmmmm... One month. We were the former champs for one month."

    Muraco: "That's right, brother. One month.

    "And we regained the titles on the second anniversary 'Mayhem' show.

    "What's coming up in a few weeks, Jim?"

    Snuka: "That would be 'Mayhem's' third anniversary show."

    Muraco: "Right again!

    "Now, we need Tony Garea of the championship committee to come out and join us in the ring if he would be so kind."

    Muraco and Snuka walked around in the ring.

    Muraco: "Come on, Tony! Get your pasty white ass out here!"

    The pair walked around in the ring some more and Garea, in a suit, appeared and made his way down the aisle with mic in hand and climbed into the ring.

    Snuka: "And here he is."

    Muraco: "Glad you could make it, Garea."

    Garea: "I have a feeling I know what this is about. You want to trigger your re-match clause against Los Lobos for the tag team titles."

    Muraco: "Very perceptive. I'm impressed.

    "We do want to trigger our re-match clause and we want the match to take place on the 'Mayhem' third anniversary show."

    Garea: ""As the former champs, you are guaranteed a re-match.

    "Los Lobos isn't here."

    Snuka: "That's too bad."

    Garea: "But, they have made it quite clear to me that they welcome the re-match for the tag team titles. And they will defend them against you anytime, anywhere.

    "So, the main event at the third anniversary show of 'Mayhem' in Baltimore on April 17th will be Los Lobos defending the World Tag Team Titles against former champions Don Muraco and Jimmy Snuka!"

    Crowd cheered.

    Muraco: "That's just what we wanted to hear, Garea.

    "And, unlike with Los Lobos, who you on the championship committee gave chance after chance after chance to win the belts long after they deserved any more title shots, I am here to tell you that you'll only need to give us the one chance. Don Muraco and Jimmy Snuka are gonna become the WCW World Tag Team Champions for the third time on April 17th!"

    Mainly boos from the crowd but also some cheers.

    Garea: "We'll see, gentlemen."

    Snuka: "You're gonna see it, alright. Those belts are headed back our way and we're gonna have an even longer run as the champs this time."

    Muraco: "And we want a clause put in the contract for this match."

    Garea: "What sort of clause?"

    Muraco: "We want a clause that states that when we beat Los Lobos for the belts in Baltimore at the 'Mayhem' anniversary show, Los Lobos does NOT get a re-match."

    Garea: "Wait a minute. All contracts for championship matches have a re-match clause in them so the former champions can try and regain the belts. It's the right thing to do."

    Muraco: "Not in this case. With all the opportunities they were given to win the belts, they don't deserve nothin'! They lose 'em to us and they're done as challengers for however long we hold the titles. And like Jimmy said, we're gonna hold 'em for a long time when we get 'em back. Los Lobos is gonna have to wait years for another title shot."

    Garea: "This is just ri..."

    Muraco: "I'm not done.

    "The flip side of the clause we want is this. If me and Jimmy lose the match in Baltimore on April 17th, which is about as likely to happen as the sun falling out of the sky, then we can't challenge for the tag team titles again for as long as Los Lobos remains the tag team champions!"

    Crowd buzzing.

    Garea: "This is a very unusual match clause that you're asking for. I'm gonna have to discuss it with members of the championship committee as well as the tag team champions."

    Muraco: "You've got to discuss it with Los Lob... You on the championship committee didn't ask us if we wanted to defend the titles in a cage against Los Lobos at 'Spring Breakout'! You just made the f-ing match and we were saddled with it! This is only fair, Garea! You get that clause put in the contract! We demand it! And screw talking to Tito and Manny! That screams collusion!"

    Garea: "I'm not guaranteeing anything, Don. And we will consult with the champions about this."

    Snuka: "We want an answer next week. And it better be the answer we want to hear."

    Garea: "Threatening WCW officials is never a good idea, Jimmy."

    Snuka: "Just do your job and there will be no problems."

    Garea: "I've told you what I'm gonna do and I will have an answer for you next week."

    Muraco: "We're not playin' around, man! That clause is in the contract...or else!"

    Muraco and Snuka glared at Garea and Garea returned the glare before turning and leaving the ring and dropping to the floor and heading back up the aisle as Muraco and Snuka talked off-mic in the ring.)

    (Announcers discussed the news regarding the tag team titles. Then sent it backstage.)

    (Backstage: Scott Hudson.

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

    "I was supposed to be interviewing Ric Flair for his upcoming match in the main event against Larry Zbysko of The Firm later tonight. But, no one has seen Ric Flair in the building tonight. No one knows where is. Calls to his cell phone are not being returned. Calls to his hotel room went unanswered. There was a call to his home and they haven't heard from him, either.

    "We know Ric has been having serious problems lately with The Firm. One has to wonder if they've gotten to him. Have they done something to him? We do not know.

    "We'll keep you abreast of this potentially disturbing situation throughout the program.

    "To repeat, Ric Flair has not been seen in the building, at the hotel, or anywhere those in the know think he might be. No one knows what is going on with Ric.")

    (Announcers discussed the situation regarding Ric Flair.

    Madden: "If The Firm has arrived at the building, maybe they ought to check the trunk of the car they came in."

    Schiavone: "Hopefully, this is all just a misunderstanding. I shudder to think what might have happened to Ric Flair."

    Announcers said Dynamite Kid vs. Davey Boy Smith was coming up next.)

    Match 1
    Dynamite Kid vs. Davey Boy Smith

    ('Some Heads Are Gonna Roll' https://youtu.be/C21PrOKRG8w by Judas Priest played and out came Smith to strong boos. Smith was in a satin ring jacket with a white front, the Union Jack on the back and one red sleeve and one blue sleeve, tights that had the Union Jack design on the front and back and blue ring boots with red trim. Smith made his way to the ring and climbed in. Smith walked around in the ring and didn't acknowledge the fans.

    'London Calling' https://youtu.be/4vHvzybkqfo played and out came Kid to a strong ovation. Kid had the Union Jack flag draped over his shoulders, dark blue leg-length tights with the word 'England' in the colors of the Union Jack going down the outside of each leg and red boots with blue and white trim. Kid slapped hands with some fans on the way to the ring. Once in the ring, Kid climbed into the ring and stood on the middle buckle and held the Union Jack out behind him and then stood in his corner.

    Hard fought battle between the two former friends and tag team partners turned bitter enemies.

    Smith and Kid each held the advantage at points during the match and some exciting near falls occurred during the battle. During the match, Smith hurt Kid with some stiff kicks to the side of the ribs.

    At the end of the match, Kid had the advantage. Kid worked Smith over with a series of European uppercuts, whipped Smith into the ropes and Smith leapfrogged Kid coming off. Smith hit the opposite ropes and came off just as Kid turned and Smith obliterated Kid with a brutal clothesline. Kid crashed to the mat. Smith stomped Kid in Kid's hurting ribs. Smith snapped Kid up, whipped Kid into the ropes and caught Kid coming off with a kick to the gut that doubled over Kid. Smith hoisted Kid up and blasted Kid with a running powerbomb. Smith covered Kid and hooked the leg. 1...2...thr... Kid kicked out. Fans popped. Smith snapped Kid up, whipped Kid into the buckles and charged in and popped his former mate with running splash. Kid stumbled out of the corner and crashed to the mat. Kid rolled over on his side holding his ribs and Smith stomped Kid in the back. Smith pulled Kid up by the hair and got right in Kid's face and said something that mics did not pick up. Smith whipped Kid into the ropes and looked to catch Kid coming off with a clothesline but Kid ducked the move and came back and dropped Smith with a flying headbutt. Smith down holding his head. Kid unsteadily backed up and assumed the position as Smith slowly made his way to his feet. Smith up and turned and Kid charged in and pulverized Smith with his spear finisher. Fans popped. Smith down. Kid rolled over on his back grabbing at his ribs. Crowd urging Kid to cover Smith. Kid slowly crawled over and covered Smith. 1...2...thr... Davey kicked out. Crowd groaned. Kid, wincing in pain, was able to snap Smith up and blast Smith with a snap suplex. Kid slowly, painfully made it to his feet grabbing his ribs. Kid quick stomped Smith and then Kid climbed out on the apron. Kid briefly grabbed his ribs once more before starting the slow, painful climb to the top buckle. Once at the top, Kid struggled maintain his balance. Smith started to recover in the ring and made it to his feet. Kid leaped off the top rope and Smith caught Kid in mid-air with a dropkick. Kid crashed to the mat and grabbed at his ribs. Smith got up and went over and grabbed the injured Kid, hoisted Kid up, backed into the corner and charged out and blasted Kid with his running powerslam finisher. Smith covered Kid. 1...2...3! Ref called for the bell as the crowd booed.

    Smith, weary from the battle, got to his feet and the ref raised Smith's hand in victory to more boos. Smith briefly strutted around the ring victoriously before leaving the ring, dropping to the floor and heading back up the aisle to boos.

    WINNER: Smith - Pinfall - Running Powerslam - 13:29)

    (Announcers discussed Smith beating Kid. Hyped the Flair- Zbysko main event if Flair shows up. Said new Tru TV Champ Sgt. Slaughter makes an appearance next!)

    (Announcers intro'd video for the upcoming special edition of 'Mayhem':

    WCW 'Mayhem' 3-Year Anniversary Show! - LIVE! - TRU TV - 2-Hour Special - Tuesday - April 17 - Baltimore, MD - Royal Farms Arena - 9pm E/P! - Tickets on sale NOW!)

    (Backstage: Scott Hudson.

    Hudson was standing backstage in front of a barren white wall.

    Hudson: "Still nothing new to report on the whereabouts of Ric Flair. No one can get a hold of him at all. He's scheduled to be one-half of the main event tonight. But if he's not here then the match-making committee will have to come up with a replacement match.

    "We'll keep you updated as the situation merits.")

    (Announcers intro'd video of Sgt. Slaughter defeating Dick Slater two weeks ago on 'Mayhem' to become the new Tru TV Champion.

    VIDEO:

    Slater crashed hard into the buckles, staggered out of the corner and crashed to the mat. Sarge snapped up Slater and went to whip Slater into the ropes but Slater reversed and sent Sarge crashing full-force into the referee. Ref crashed to the mat with the heavier Sarge on top of him. Both men down.

    Slater looked up at Sherri and gestured with his hands. Sherri reached into her bra and pulled out an object and dropped it out through an opening in the cage. The object dropped to the floor. It was the small steel chain Slater had used to beat Sarge at 'Spring Breakout'. Slater dropped to the floor and retrieved the chain. Sarge starting to stir. Slater climbed into the ring and brazenly wrapped the chain around his fist. Sarge started getting up. Slater lying in wait. Sarge up and turned and Slater moved in to punch Sarge with his chain-laden right fist but Sarge blocked the punch try and fired away on Slater with a series of head shots and then reared back and pulverized Slater with a big roundhouse right to the jaw. Slater crashed to the mat and dropped the chain. Crowd roaring as Sarge grabbed the chain and threw it out of the ring. Sherri all hysterical. Sarge stood back and assumed the position as a shaky Slater made it to his feet. Ref regaining his senses. Slater up and Sarge charged in and blasted Slater with his Slaughter Cannon finisher. Slater laid out. Sarge quickly dragged the ref over, dropped down and covered Slater. 1....2....3! Ref called for the bell as the crowd went nuts.)


    (In-ring: Craig Johnson.

    Johnson: "Please welcome my guest at this time! He is the NEW Tru TV Champion...Sgt. Slaughter!"

    Marine Corps Hymn https://youtu.be/kIhiMqz7iuE filled the arena and out came Slaughter to a strong ovation. Sarge was in street clothes, sunglasses and his DI hat. He had the title slung over his shoulder. Sarge slapped hands with fans on the way to the ring. Sarge climbed into the ring and turned to all four sides and saluted the fans.

    Johnson: "Sgt. Slaughter! Congratulations are in order for winning the Tru TV Championship!"

    Sarge: "Thank you, Craig!

    "It was a great feeling to finally liberate this title from the hands of a man like Dick Slater! Slater's reign as TV Champion was one that was defined by winning at all costs! The man took a lot of shortcuts to hold onto this belt! He was a dishonorable champion!

    "But I'm here to tell all these great fans out here that I will be a fighting champion! And I will defend this title with honor and integrity! Just like you respect our great flag, a champion should have a great deal of respect and reverence for the belt he holds!"

    Sarge took the title off his shoulder and looked at it.

    Sarge: "I had to overcome a lot of obstacles to win this! So there's no way I'm disrespecting this title!

    "I promise you fans right now that you will only see me defend the Tru TV Championship cleanly and fairly! There will be no shortcuts here! I will retain or lose this belt defending it like I used to defend Ol' Glory...by giving it everything I have and fighting the good fight!"

    Crowd cheered.

    Cheers melted to boos as Dick Slater, in street clothes, came out and made his way to the ring and climbed in and walked up to Sarge.

    Slater: "Let me tell you something, Sarge!"

    Sarge: "I notice that Sherri is not with you."

    Slater: "She's still traumatized from being locked in that cage and suspended in mid-air a couple of weeks ago! But she will be back very soon!

    "I came out here to say one thing to you, Sarge! Enjoy it while it lasts! The people need to know we've signed for a series of re-matches for the Tru TV Championship! And I'm gonna remain hot on your trail until I regain that title!"

    Sarge: "We're gonna battle it out all over the country for this championship, Slater! I knew when I signed those contracts for re-matches with you what I was getting into!

    "You're a cheater, Slater! Your nickname, 'Dirty', suits you to a tee! But I'm gonna do everything in my power to keep you from regaining the Tru TV Championship!"

    Slater: "You go right ahead, Sarge! I earned my nickname because I'll do whatever I have to to win! I don't even deny it! If I can get away with something that
    helps me in a match, then I'll do it!

    "All your talk about honor and respect and all that crap means nothing to me!"

    Sarge: "That's obvious!"

    Slater: "I'm all about the W's! I'm all about winning championships! I'm all about getting the winner's share of the purse! And I'll do whatever I have to do to achieve those goals!

    "I'm gunning for you, Slaughter! And we'll see just how far kissing the asses of these stinkin' fans gets you in the long run!"

    Sarge: "I know what to expect from you, Slater! You were born a cheater! In the card game of life, you made sure you got the marked deck! I know when that bell rings you're gonna look to take shortcuts to try and gain an advantage and win the TV Title back! But I'll be ready!

    "These fans that you despise want a champion that will fight for them! And when we clash in arenas all across this great country of ours, they will rally behind the man who has great respect for them! And that man is me!"

    Fans cheered.

    Slater: "Listen to the pathetic sheep cheer their hero!

    "I'm all about me! What can I do for me! What's best for me! These fans are worthless! They don't win me anything! It only takes three seconds one time, Sarge! 1...2...3 and I'm the Tru TV Champion again! And it's gonna happen in one of our re-matches! Doesn't matter the arena or anything else! It will happen!

    "So, enjoy your honorable title reign, Sarge! It's not gonna be a long one!"

    Sarge: "I'll see you in the arena, Slater."

    The two engaged in a staredown as the segment ended.)

    (Announcers discussed the situation between Sarge (TVC) and Dick Slater. Hyped their re-matches at house shows. Then sent it backstage.)

    (Backstage: Scott Hudson.

    Hudson: "Coming to you from the WCW Interview Center. My guest at this time is Larry Zbsyko of The Firm."

    Zbysko walked into the interview area in his ring duds.

    Hudson: "Larry..."

    Zbysko: "Hahahahaha!"

    Hudson: "What's so funny?"

    Zbysko: "I hear that no one can find Ric Flair."

    Hudson: "You think that's funny? Did you guys in The Firm do something to him?!"

    Zbysko: "Nobody in The Firm has messed with Ric Flair tonight! I'm supposed to face him in our main event! I want to put him down for the count! Why would I do anything to him?!"

    Hudson: "You guys have said that your goal is to drive Flair out of his mind. Sure seems, by The Firm's own statements, that you want to harm Flair.

    "And as we saw last week, you guys violently assaulted Flair twice and left him laid out."

    Zbysko: "The second attack was his fault because he hit me, unprovoked I might add, with a chair! You seem to suffer from selective outrage, Hudson!"

    Hudson: "He did that because of what you, Hall and Orndorff did to him earlier in the show! Hello, Larry! Anybody home?!"

    Zbysko: "It's like this, you smoldering turd!

    "The goal of The Firm is to physically and mentally destroy Ric Flair! We've made no bones about it! No one has heard from him or seen him tonight! He may be checking himself into a mental hospital as we speak!"

    Hudson: "You're proud of that?! Jeez!"

    Zbysko: "It would not be something to be proud of because we have so much more torture to heap on the guy that if he already broke, well, where's the fun in that?!"

    Hudson: "Are you serious?! That is sick, Larry! Really..."

    Zbysko: "If he's already had a breakdown, that just shows what kind of weak individual Flair is! It would show the world that he's an extremely fragile fellow who cracks like an egg at the slightest touch!

    "I'm gonna walk to that ring tonight and see if Ric Flair shows up! If he doesn't, then it shows just what a pathetic character he really is! If he can't handle the heat from some guys who don't like him, then he's in the wrong sport! He needs to grow a set and man up a little and stop acting like a primadonna backstage!"

    Hudson: "I do need to let you and the fans know that if Flair doesn't show up tonight, the match that will take the place of Zbysko vs. Flair is Marty Jannetty vs. Tommy Rich."

    Zbysko: "If that happens it will be a tragedy because I want to push Flair a little closer to the edge! The Firm wants to see him break down on national television! We want to see him crack before his fans!"

    Hudson: "I've heard enough! It's Ric Flair vs. Larry Zbysko of The Firm in our main event tonight if Flair shows up!"

    Zbysko: "Please, Ric, show up! I'm begging you!"

    Hudson: "Get the hell out of here!"

    Zbysko flipped Hudson's tie up into Hudson's face and walked out of the interview area as a steamed Hudson looked on.)

    (Announcers said the main event, if it happens, was coming up after the break.)

    (Commercials)

    (Announcers intro'd a video of the next WCW PPV.

    (Announcers hyped for next week on 'Mayhem': The championship committee will have an answer about the special clause Muraco and Snuka want put in the contract for their tag title re-match at the 'Mayhem' 3rd Anniversary Show'; Bret Hart makes an appearance; Scott Irwin vs. brother 'Million Dollar' Bill Irwin; the first 3rd Anniversary Show Update; and more. Then sent it backstage.)

    (Backstage: Scott Hudson.

    Hudson was standing in the hallway.

    Hudson: "Guys, there is nothing new to report. Ric Flair is still not here and it's time for the main event.

    "If the Flair-Zbysko match doesn't go down as planned, Tommy Rich will battle Marty Jannetty in the main event instead.")

    Match 2
    'Living Legend' Larry Zbysko vs. 'Nature Boy' Ric Flair

    ('All Along The Watchtower' https://youtu.be/TLV4_xaYynY played and out came Larry Zbysko to strong boos. Zbysko was in his black ring jacket with 'Living Legend' written in gold lettering on the back, black tights and black boots with 'LZ' in gold lettering on the outside of each boot. Zbysko made his way to the ring and climbed in and went over by the ropes and demanded the ring mic and got it.

    Zbysko: "Nobody's seen the great Ric Flair tonight! I'm betting that he's too scared to show his face! He's had enough of The Firm! Looks like it didn't take much to run the 'Nature Boy' out of WCW!"

    More boos as Zbysko tossed the mic and started strutting around the ring.

    'Also Sprach Zarathustra' https://youtu.be/X6RoasSoLK0 played and the fans popped as they waited for the arrival of Ric Flair.

    And they waited... No Flair.

    Madden: "Looks like Zbysko might be right and Flair has bolted. He doesn't want anything more to do with The Firm."

    Fans still waiting...

    Zbysko paced around the ring and turned with hands on hips and was facing the entrance aisle. Zbysko shook his head in disgust. Ref also looking at the entrance aisle.

    Zbysko picked up on a mic.

    Zbysko: "He's not here! The great Ric Flair...COWARD!"

    On the other side of the ring, there was movement under the ring. Out came Ric Flair. Crowd erupted.

    Schiavone: "Flair was hiding under the ring all this time!"

    Flair was in a black t-shirt with 'Gold's Gym' written in gold lettering across the front, red tights and red boots with white trim and 'RF' in white lettering on the outside of each boot.

    Flair climbed into the ring, came up behind Zbysko, spun Zbysko around and tore into the surprised Zbysko with a series of stiff, brutal chest chops as the crowd grew even louder.

    Ref called for the bell.

    Flair whipped Zbysko into the ropes and caught Zbysko coming off with a big chest chop. Zbysko crashed to the mat. Flair dropped down and started pounding the back of Zbysko's head on the mat. Flair snapped Zbysko up and whipped Zbysko into the buckles. Flair mounted the middle buckle over Zbysko and popped Zbysko in the head with a series of punches. Flair dropped back to his feet on the mat. Zbysko staggered out of the corner and crashed to the mat. Flair yelled at Zbysko to get up. Zbysko put his hand up defensively as he got to a knee. Zbysko stayed in that position and Flair once again yelled at Zbysko to get to his feet. Zbysko got up and put his hands up and was begging off as Flair slowly moved in on him. Zbysko backed into the corner and ducked his head and put his arms up over his head. Flair stopped and stood there. Zbysko slowly peeked up and Flair brazenly poked Zbysko in the eye. Ref reprimanded Flair. Flair pulled Zbysko out of the corner and popped Zbysko with a suplex. Flair followed with an elbow smash across the chest. Flair backed into the ropes and came off with a knee drop to the head that connected. Flair covered the already battered Zbysko. 1...2...thr... Flair pulled Zbysko up by the hair. Ref again reprimanded Flair. Flair snapped Zbysko up and whipped Zbysko into the ropes. Zbysko grabbed the top rope and held on, dropped down, rolled out of the ring and crashed to the floor. Flair went to go after Zbysko. Ref ordered Flair to stand back. Flair went to go after Zbysko again but the ref intercepted Flair and ordered him back. Zbysko started crawling on all fours back up the aisle. Flair stood back and the ref started the 20-count. Just a few seconds into the count, Flair bolted past the ref, dropped to the floor and charged up the aisle. Zbysko was still on his hands and knees when Flair caught him. Flair slammed Zbysko's head into the floor twice. Flair pulled Zbysko up and sent Zbysko crashing hard into the barricade. Zbysko started staggering back towards the ring. Ref counting. Flair caught up to Zbysko and slammed Zbysko's head three times into the ring apron. Zbysko went down on the floor and was holding his head. Flair stomped away on Zbysko and then Flair quickly rolled in and out of the ring to break the count. Flair yelled for Zbysko to get up. Zbysko scooted on his ass on the floor away from Flair. Ref counting. Zbysko again put his hands up defensively. Flair moved in and snapped Zbysko up and whipped Zbysko into the ring steps. Zbysko crashed hard into the steps and went down in a crumpled heap. Ref counting. Zbysko rolled away from the steps. Flair pulled off the top half of the steel ring steps and raised them over his head and went to slam the steps on Zbysko but Zbysko rolled out of the way and the steps slammed into the floor. Flair grabbed Zbysko and threw Zbysko back into the ring. Flair climbed up on the apron and mounted the top buckle. Zbysko up and turned and Flair came off the top buckle with a head shot that connected. Zbysko crumpled to the mat.

    Schiavone: "Flair is trying to absolutely destroy Zbysko! It's like he's possessed!"

    Zbysko totally beaten down. Flair grabbed Zbysko's left leg, yanked on it a few times and then locked Zbysko in his figure 4 finisher to the delight of the fans. Zbysko writhing in pain but not giving up.

    Madden: "Might be best for Zbysko to tap out here and live to fight another day!"

    Flair had Zbysko in the hold for several seconds and then released it.

    Schiavone: "Flair is just torturing Zbysko now!"

    Flair up and once again yelled for Zbysko to get up. Zbysko scooted over by the ropes and slowly, with the aid of the ropes, made it to his feet. Flair moved in and kicked Zbysko in the left leg and then walked Zbysko over and slammed Zbysko's head into the top buckle 10 times in rapid fashion as the fans counted along. Zbysko leaned front-first against the buckles. Flair again yelled for Zbysko to turn around and fight and Zbysko didn't budge. Flair moved in, spun Zbysko around and pulverized Zbysko with a series chest chops. Zbysko slid down to his ass in the corner. Flair started choking Zbysko out with his boot and broke the illegal move at the ref's count of 4. Flair pulled Zbysko to his feet, pulled Zbysko out of the corner and whipped Zbysko into the ropes and looked to catch Zbysko coming off with a backdrop but Zbysko caught Flair with a kick to the chest. Flair shot up and stumbled back and Zbysko found the strength to hit Flair with a spin kick to the chest. Flair crashed to the mat and Zbysko went down on his hands and knees. Ref counting. The two men made it to their feet and Zbysko jumped on Flair and started pounding on him with fists and forearms. Zbysko then raked Flair's eyes across the top rope. Flair staggered off holding his eyes. Flair turned and Zbysko popped Flair with a dropkick. Flair slammed into the buckles, staggered out of the corner and crashed to the mat. Zbysko staggered/stumbled and left the ring and dropped to the floor and went over and grabbed the timekeeper's bell off the timekeeper's table. Craig Johnson grabbed the bell to keep Zbysko from using it but Zbysko shoved Johnson hard and gained control of the bell. Flair recovering in the ring. Zbysko climbed into the ring with the bell in hand. Ref ordered Zbysko to drop the bell and Zbysko ignored the ref and threatened to hit the ref with the bell and the ref backed away from Zbysko while still warning him not to use the bell. Zbysko raised the bell over his head and moved in on Flair as Flair got to his knees. Zbysko moved in and was prepared to bash Flair over the head with it when Flair nailed Zbysko with a trio of gut shots and Zbysko dropped the bell. An angry Flair got up and raised his fists and dared Zbysko to try and hit him. Zbysko went to punch Flair and Flair blocked the punch try and popped Zbysko with a head shot and then tore into Zbysko with more nasty chest chops. The last chop spun Zbysko around facing away from Flair. Zbysko staggered off. Flair removed his t-shirt, came up behind Zbysko and started strangling Zbysko with the shirt. Crowd roaring. Flair released the illegal hold at the count of 4. Flair tossed the shirt. Zbysko staggering around holding his throat. Flair grabbed Zbysko, whipped Zbysko into the ropes and caught Zbysko coming off with his flying forearm shiver to the side of the head finisher. Zbysko crashed to the mat. Flair covered Zbysko. 1...2...thr... Flair again pulled Zbysko up by the hair just before the ref counted three. Ref again reprimanded Flair. Crowd buzzing.

    Mixed crowd reaction as Paul Orndorff and Scott Hall, both in street clothes, charged down the aisle to ringside. Orndorff immediately jumped up on the ring apron. Ref went over and ordered Orndorff off the apron and Orndorff started arguing with the ref. Flair looked over and saw Orndorff with the ref. Hall climbed in the ring behind Flair, spun Flair around and blasted Flair with a vicious slap upside the head. Flair stunned. Orndorff and the ref in heated debate and Ondorff grabbed the ref's arm. Ref yelled at Orndorff to let him go. Orndorff released him but kept the ref distracted by arguing with him. Hall grabbed Flair by the throat and nailed Flair with a chokeslam. Flair laid out. Hall bailed back to the floor. Orndorff stopped arguing with the ref and dropped to the floor. Zbysko recovered enough to get to his feet, go over and grab Flair, hoist Flair up and nail Flair with his brainbuster finisher. Zbysko covered Flair. 1...2...3! Ref called for the bell as most of the crowd booed.

    Hall and Orndorff climbed into the ring as Zbysko rolled off of Flair and both Flair and Zbysko were laying in the ring. Hall helped Zbysko to his feet and the ref went over and raised Zbysko's hand in victory while Hall was holding him. Orndorff put the boots to the still downed Flair. Some garbage started to hit the ring. Shot of Orndorff and Hall each raising a hand of Zbysko's in victory and the defeated Flair laid out. Zbysko then spat on the downed Flair as the program faded to black.

    The Firm had done it again...

    WINNER: Zbysko - Pinfall - Brainbuster - 10:24)

    OLD SCHOOL WRESTLING CINEMA!

    This classic vid comes from Georgia Championship Wrestling circa 1980.

    It's Ted DiBiase & Junyard Dog vs. Freebirds Terry Gordy & Buddy Roberts.

    This match contains an amazing angle and wrestling announcer Gordon Solie does a great, realistic job of selling what you're watching.

    WCW MAYHEM - EP. 149 - DENVER, CO - MAGNESS ARENA - 3-27-18 (Taped)

    (Show Intro)

    (Crowd Shots/Pyro)

    (Announcers Tony Schiavone and Mark Madden welcomed viewers and ran down the program: 'Spring Breakout' Re-Match: Randy Savage vs. 'World's Greatest Athlete' Terry Taylor; Bret Hart makes an appearance; Scott Irwin vs. brother 'Million Dollar' Bill; a look back at the end of last week's Flair-Zbysko match; the first 'Mayhem' 3rd Anniversary Show Update; and more!)

    (In-ring: Craig Johnson.

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

    "With me in the ring right now is Tony Garea of the championship committee."

    Garea was in a suit and got virtually no reaction.

    Johnson: "Tony, we know what you're out here for. So let's get right down to business."

    Theme from the original 'Hawaii Five-O' https://youtu.be/MC64gKvh5R8 played and out came the former tag champs Muraco and Snuka to loud boos and some cheers. Both were in street clothes and each man had a mic. The pair made their way to the ring and climbed in. The pair was all business.

    'Will The Wolf Survive' https://youtu.be/9NKsIQYc2zs played and out came Los Lobos to a solid crowd reaction. Manny Fernandez and Tito Santana were in street clothes. They each had a belt slung over their left shoulder. They slapped hands with fans on the way to the ring. The pair climbed into the ring and each man walked to a corner, mounted the middle buckle and raised the tag titles in the air to more cheers. They then walked over to Johnson and soaked in the cheers a little longer.

    The teams glared at one another.

    Johnson: "Tony, what say you?"

    Garea: "Last week, Don Muraco and Jimmy Snuka demanded that a clause be put in the contract for the World Tag Title match which will be taking place on the 'Mayhem' 3rd Anniversary show on April 17th in Baltimore.

    "The clause is that the loser of that match cannot challenge for the tag team titles again for as long either team holds the belts.

    "Manny and Tito, we await your decision on this matter."

    Tito: "When we first heard Don and Jimmy's demand we were caught off-guard. We'd never heard of a clause like that.

    "But, we talked about it..."

    Muraco: "Would you just answer the damn question, Tito!"

    Manny: "Shut up, Muraco, unless you want a good, old fashioned knuckle sandwich!"

    Garea: "Please continue, Tito."

    Tito: "To answer the question...we accept the clause that the challengers want put in the contract for the match."

    Crowd cheered.

    Garea: "Since both parties are in agreement, the no re-match clause for the losing team will be written into the contract for the match."

    Johnson: "Don and Jimmy, I have to ask this. Don't you think you're taking a big chance here? I mean, you guys lose and it could be a long time before you get a shot at the tag titles again."

    Muraco: "As I said last week, we're only gonna need one re-match to regain those belts. We've dominated tag team wrestling here in WCW for well over a year now.

    "Just like last year, we lost the belts to the Skyscrapers at 'Spring Breakout'; a month later, we won them for the second time at the 'Mayhem' anniversary show. It's gonna be a case of deja vu. Those belts are coming home."

    Manny: "You know what, man?! You managed to hang on to the tag titles by the skin of your teeth in matches with us before we finally won them. If you didn't cheat or get intentionally disqualified in our previous bouts, you guys would have lost these belts long before 'Spring Breakout'!"

    Snuka: "Face it, you guys are just temporary champions. There's no way that Don asks for the no re-match clause in the contract if we didn't know we were going to win those babies back on the first try."

    Tito: "You guys are awful confident..."

    Muraco: "Why shouldn't we be, Tito? This is just a minor glitch for us. Everything will be corrected in three weeks in Baltimore.

    "I also think new belts should be made specifically for us. After we defeat you and become the three time World Tag Team Champions, we should be presented belts with nameplates on them. And the two names on those plates should be Don Muraco and Jimmy Snuka. And there will be no need to make any other plates because we're gonna be the champs longer then we've ever been before."

    Manny: "You guys can talk all you want! The fact is the tag team belts are in our hands right now! If you beat us in Baltimore, then you've got them again and we can't challenge for them for as long as you're the champs.

    "But, the flip side to all of this is that if we win, then the only thing you'll be able to do is sit on the sidelines and watch us defend the titles for as long as we hold 'em."

    Snuka: "Me and Don are not worried at all. We're at our best in the big money title bouts...."

    Manny: "Except the one at 'Spring Breakout'."

    Crowd popped. Jimmy wanted to go after Manny and Manny after Snuka but Muraco held Jimmy back and Tito held Manny back.

    Muraco: "No one is perfect. But as we've proven, Jimmy Snuka and Don Muraco are about as close to perfect as you can get when it comes to tag team wrestling.

    "You two just need to be good sports when you lose to us. Don't act like typical Mexicans and have a temper tantrum like your people do when the leaf blower is broken."

    Manny: "That's it!"

    Muraco stepped back as Tito once again had to restrain Manny from going after Muraco.

    Garea: "That's enough of that kind of talk! You will settle this in the ring in Baltimore on April 17th!"

    Tito: "Tony's right. We'll settle this with our actions in the ring."

    Snuka: "We will settle it in the ring, Tito. We will. And Los Lobos is not gonna like the end result."

    Muraco: "You guys are gonna need a lot of tequila and re-fried beans to drown your sorrows in when we're finished with you in Baltimore."

    The pair stared each other down.

    Garea: "I will not allow this to get physical tonight.

    "Los Lobos, please leave the ring."

    After the tense staredown continued for several seconds, Los Lobos turned and started to leave the ring.

    Muraco: "That's right! Go! Get out of here! And take all your border busting family members with you!"

    Garea: "Don!"

    Manny turned and Tito grabbed him and tried to hold him at bay but Manny broke free from Tito's grasp. Manny walked up and got in Muraco's face. Crowd buzzing as the two exchanged pleasantries off-mic. Manny then hauled off and punched Muraco in the jaw and the crowd popped. Muraco stumbled back holding his jaw. Snuka came over to his tag partner and checked on him briefly. Manny just glared at Muraco. Tito was trying to get Manny to leave the ring to no avail.

    Garea: "Dammit! I just said that there would be nothing physical between you guys tonight!

    "Manny, I'm fining you $2500 dollars for striking Muraco!"

    Crowd booed.

    Manny looked over at Garea and was seething. Muraco, still holding his jaw, started laughing and pointing at Manny. Manny went to go after Muraco again.

    Muraco: "Don't you touch me! Stay away! You don't want to lose any more pesos if you can help it!"

    Garea: "Cut it out..."

    Manny dropped his belt and charged over and jumped on Muraco and started pounding the hell out of Muraco. Snuka and Tito moved in and worked to separate the two. After a brief struggle, Snuka and Tito succeeded in pulling the men apart. Muraco was hurting but on his feet and Manny was in a rage.

    Garea: "You just won't listen, Manny! The fine is now $5000 dollars!"

    Manny: "What?!"

    Garea: "Los Lobos needs to leave the ring now! Don't make the situation worse for you!"

    Manny just glared at Garea for a long moment and then he and Tito looked over at Muraco and Snuka. Muraco had an evil sneer on his face and Snuka was chuckling. Snuka gave the blow off gesture for the champs to leave the ring. Manny and Tito glared at Muraco and Snuka a little longer before finally leaving the ring for the floor and heading back up the aisle. Tito put his hand on Manny's back in an effort to calm him down. Manny turned at the entrance ramp and looked back angrily at Muraco and Snuka, who were still in the ring. Tito was finally able to get Manny to head up the ramp as Muraco waved bye-bye to the pair while wincing in pain. Tito and Manny disappeared to the back as the segment ended.)

    (Announcers intro'd video from the match between the Irwin brothers from five weeks ago,

    VIDEO:

    Crowd cheered as Scott tossed the mic and ignored the ref, left the ring and dropped to the floor. Bill up and started slowly backing off as Scott moved in on him. Bill tried to beg off but Scott caught Bill and popped him with some punches and went to whip Bill into the ring post but Bill reversed and sent Scott crashing shoulder-first into the post. Scott stumbled off. Ref counting. Bill grabbed Scott and went to whip Scott into one of the opposite ringside barricades but Scott reversed and sent Bill crashing front-first into barricade. The impact sent Bill toppling over the barricade and crashing to the floor. Bill up as Scott climbed over the barricade. Bill backing up as Scott stalked him. Bill then moved into the fourth row of fans at ringside and Scott stalked Bill down the row past the fans. Ref's count hit 20 and he called for the bell...Bill staggered over by an opening in the hockey boards and started backing up the permanent steps as Scott stalked him... Bill staggered off and went through the section tunnel that led to the concourse and Scott followed Bill out. Bill started to back away from Scott and Bill reached over and grabbed a popcorn vendor who was selling popcorn at a stand alone old school popcorn cart and threw the vendor into Scott and then wheeled the popcorn cart into Scott's way. Bill ran into a men's bathroom as Scott gave chase. Scott tried to open the door but Bill had locked it. Scott pounded on the door...Bill quickly opened the door but had a fat guy standing in front of him, Bill shoved the fat guy, who's jeans were down at his knees but his underpants were pulled up and had a toilet paper tail sticking out of them, into Scott. Bill then closed and locked the bathroom door again as Scott shoved fatty out of the way. Scott pounded on the door.)


    Match 1
    'Million Dollar' Bill vs. Scott Irwin

    ('Money' https://youtu.be/cpbbuaIA3Ds 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.

    'Flirtin' With Disaster' https://youtu.be/ci3afKw_mcY by Molly Hatchet played and out came Scott Irwin to a good ovation. Scott was in his long black trench coat, blue jeans, cowboy-style wrestling boots and blue bandana on his head. Scott slapped hands with fans on the way to the ring.

    As Scott was stepping into the ring, Bill charged over and jumped Scott and started pounding away on him.

    Ref called for the bell.

    Bill slammed Scott's head into the top buckle and Scott spun around in the corner. Bill peppered Scott with head and body shots. Bill whipped Scott into the opposite buckles and charged in and Scott got a boot up and Bill crashed face-first into it and went down. Fans cheered. Scott snapped up Bill and whipped Bill into the ropes and dropped Bill coming off with a clothesline. Scott dropped down on Bill and blasted him with head shots. Bill rolling around in the ring holding his head as Scott removed his jacket and tossed it. Bill up and Scott caught Bill with a series of gut shots that drove Bill next to the ropes. Scott whipped Bill into the ropes and caught Bill coming off with a kick to the chest. Bill crashed to the mat. Scott snapped Bill up and went to whip Bill into the ropes but Bill reversed and caught Scott coming off with a flying tackle. Bill moved in and stomped on Scott. Bill snapped Scott up and bodyslammed Scott. Bill quick stomped Scott and Bill went out on the apron and mounted the top buckle and came off with a frog splash that connected. Bill bounced off of Scott but quickly recovered and covered Scott and hooked the leg. 1...2... Scott kicked out. Bill to his knees and Scott had rolled over on his stomach and Bill caught Scott in a front facelock which was clearly an illegal choke. Scott squirming in the hold. Ref started the 5 count and Bill broke the illegal move at the count of 4. Scott rolled over on his back and Bill grabbed the top rope and started choking Scott out with a knee to the throat. Bill broke the illegal move at the count of 4. Scott down grabbing his throat. Bill snapped Scott up and whipped Scott into the ropes and looked to catch Scott coming off with a backdrop but Scott dropped to a knee and blasted Bill with an uppercut to the jaw. Bill shot up and stumbled around the ring holding his jaw. Bill turned and walked right into a series of head shots followed by a discus elbow to the side of the head from Scott. Bill fell against the ropes holding the side of his head. Scott quickly regained his bearings, moved in and caught Bill with a gut punch, whipped Bill into the ropes and caught Bill coming off with a belly-to-belly suplex. Crowd popped. Scott covered Bill and hooked the leg. 1...2...thr... Bill barely kicked out. Crowd groaned. Scott sitting on his knees and Bill down and hurting. Scott snapped Bill up, whipped Bill into the ropes and caught Bill coming off with a kick to the chest. Bill stumbled back and toppled through the top and middle rope and crashed to the floor. Scott completely blew off the ref and left the ring and dropped to the floor. Ref started the 20-count. Scott reached down and snapped Bill up and slammed Bill's head twice into the top of the ringside barricade. Scott grabbed Bill in a side headlock and Bill shoved Scott off and Scott slammed front-first into the ringside barricade. Scott leaned front-first against the barricade. Bill clubbed Scott with a trio of forearm smashes to the back. Count growing. Bill reached under the ring apron and brandished a folded up steel chair. Scott still leaned against the ringside barricade. Bill slowly moved in on Scott and clubbed Scott across the back with the chair just as the count hit 20. Ref called for the bell.

    Scott staggered away from the barricade and Bill struck Scott across the back with the chair again. Scott stumbled forward. Bill raised the chair of over his head as Scott turned to face him. Bill went to hit Scott over the head with the chair but Scott instead backdropped Bill to the floor. Bill lost his grip on the chair. A hurting Scott picked the chair up off the floor. Bill made it to his feet and Scott moved in and drove the head of the chair into Bill's gut. Bill doubled over. Scott then raised the chair over his head and brought it crashing down across Bill's back to the delight of the crowd. Bill crashed to the floor. Scott raised the chair in the air with one hand and then held the chair over his head with both hands as Bill slowly got to his feet. Scott went to bring the chair down on Bill's skull but the ref, standing out on the apron grabbed the chair out of Scott's hands just as members of the WCW security team arrived. Security quickly kept Scott and Bill separated. A hurting Bill started staggering off behind a wall of WCW security. Scott, also hurting, looked on angrily at Bill from ringside as Bill backed up the aisle with security keeping the two men apart.

    DECISION: Double Count Out - 5:46)

    (Announcers discussed the Irwin brothers fighting to a double count out again.Then sent it backstage.)

    (Backstage: Scott Hudson.

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

    "My guest at this time is the self-proclaimed 'World's Greatest Athlete' Terry Taylor."

    Taylor walked into the interview area in his ring attire.

    Hudson: "Terry..."

    Taylor: "Let me just interrupt you there, Scotty boy.

    "I am no the self-proclaimed world's greatest athlete. I AM the world's greatest athlete. There's no debate on this matter."

    Hudson: "Whatever you say.

    "Tonight, you're squaring off in a 'Spring Breakout' re-match against Randy Savage. You beat Savage the first time you two clashed just over three weeks ago. What's your take on the re-match?"

    Taylor: "Randy Savage is one of the best pure athletes in the sport of professional wrestling. But, like I've said before, he's not the best pure athlete in the sport. That honor belongs to me, Terry Taylor, the 'World's Greatest Athlete'.

    "I'm sure Savage is going to make another strong showing tonight. But, he's facing the best. And that's gonna be the difference in our match again. The best beats one of the best."

    Hudson: "You don't think Savage has much of a chance to win tonight?"

    Taylor: "I just explained that clearly. The best, that's me, will get his hand raised again because that small difference in talent between us will separate us once again in the end.

    "And Randy Savage needs to know...there's no shame in losing repeatedly to the best."

    Hudson: "What's the use in Savage wrestling you multiple times if you're just gonna beat him every time?"

    Taylor: "Well, Savage will get a lot of sympathy. He'll make a good showing and then I'll put him down for the count. He loses again, but the fans admire his moxie in defeat. The fans will revere the lesser man for losing one more time to the best in the business today."

    Hudson: "Pride comes before a fall."

    Taylor: "There's nothing wrong with having a great deal of pride and flaunting it when you're the world's greatest athlete."

    Hudson: "That was Terry Taylor. He squares off in a re-match against Randy Savage in our main event. We'll see if he can back up his boast."

    Taylor: "I will.")

    (Announcers discussed the interview with a cocky Terry Taylor. Hyped the main event. Said Bret Hart makes an appearance after the break.)

    (Announcers intro'd a video of the next WCW PPV.

    VIDEO:

    (Announcers intro'd video from last week's Ric Flair-Larry Zbysko match.

    VIDEO:

    Flair tore into Zbysko with more nasty chest chops. The last chop spun Zbysko around facing away from Flair. Zbysko staggered off. Flair removed his t-shirt, came up behind Zbysko and started strangling Zbysko with the shirt. Crowd roaring. Flair released the illegal hold at the count of 4. Flair tossed the shirt. Zbysko staggering around holding his throat. Flair grabbed Zbysko, whipped Zbysko into the ropes and caught Zbysko coming off with his flying forearm shiver to the side of the head finisher. Zbysko crashed to the mat. Flair covered Zbysko. 1...2...thr... Flair again pulled Zbysko up by the hair just before the ref counted three. Ref again reprimanded Flair. Crowd buzzing.

    Mixed crowd reaction as Paul Orndorff and Scott Hall, both in street clothes, charged down the aisle to ringside. Orndorff immediately jumped up on the ring apron. Ref went over and ordered Orndorff off the apron and Orndorff started arguing with the ref. Flair looked over and saw Orndorff with the ref. Hall climbed in the ring behind Flair, spun Flair around and blasted Flair with a vicious slap upside the head. Flair stunned. Orndorff and the ref in heated debate and Ondorff grabbed the ref's arm. Ref yelled at Orndorff to let him go. Orndorff released him but kept the ref distracted by arguing with him. Hall grabbed Flair by the throat and nailed Flair with a chokeslam. Flair laid out. Hall bailed back to the floor. Orndorff stopped arguing with the ref and dropped to the floor. Zbysko recovered enough to get to his feet, go over and grab Flair, hoist Flair up and nail Flair with his brainbuster finisher. Zbysko covered Flair. 1...2...3! Ref called for the bell as most of the crowd booed.
    )

    (Announcers discussed the Flair-Zbysko footage.

    Madden: "Tony, Flair dominated like 95 percent of that match with Zbysko. He was destroying the guy. Flair made the crucial mistake of not putting Zbysko away when he had the opportunity to do so. He had Zbysko beat three different times in the match, but instead chose to continue the match so he could further punish Zbysko.

    "And thanks to Orndorff and Hall, Zbysko escaped with the victory."

    Schiavone: "The Firm is winning their self-declared war on Flair on all fronts. They're winning both the psychological battle and the physical battle. I can't see this situation lasting much longer before Flair breaks down if things continue going the way they are right now."

    Madden: "Flair's gotta ask himself if he wants to keep fighting a battle that appears unwinnable.

    "He's outnumbered 3-to-1 and even when he gets an advantage The Firm is always able to turn the tables on him and tilt things heavily in their favor."

    Schiavone: "We need to let the fans know that Ric Flair will be appearing on 'Mayhem' next week. It will be interesting to hear what he has to say and see how well he's holding up under the immense stress."

    (In-ring:

    'Hart Attack' https://youtu.be/Zynz3S60esQ filled the arena and out came Bret Hart to a strong ovation. Bret was in street clothes and had a mic. Bret slapped hands with fans on the way down the aisle and climbed in the ring and acknowledged the crowd.

    Bret: "Just over three weeks ago, the Dynamite Kid and I battled in a 2-out-of-3 falls match at 'Spring Breakout'. It was a great match between two proud wrestlers.

    "Our three match series, which started at 'Season's Beatings', were some of the best matches of my career. Dynamite brought out the best in me and I brought out the best in him. All three matches could have gone either way. That's how evenly matched we were.

    "But, the thing I'm most proud of is, when it was all over, Dynamite and I finally shook hands and buried the hatchet once and for all."

    Crowd cheered.

    Bret: "We have more respect for each other now than we ever did before. Dynamite, I salute you.

    "Now, it's time to shift my focus.

    "I entered World Class Wrestling to face the best competition here. And now I'm looking to start the climb up the proverbial mountain for one thing...the World Heavyweight Championship."

    More cheers.

    Bret: "I'm looking to work my way up to the #1 contender spot to challenge the New Spoiler for the belt.

    "Being the World Champion is what my dad trained his sons for. I won the world title in the WWE and World Championship Wrestling. Winning it in World Class Wrestling is the next thing on my to do list.

    "The New Spoiler is a formidable foe. He's never lost since he arrived in WCW. That's 18 months of beating everyone who has stepped in the ring with him. His resume' is impeccable. He's beaten some of the biggest names in this sport. He doesn't shy away from a challenge. And now it's time for me to throw my hat in the ring and challenge for the most prized title in our sport.

    "One of the things that will..."

    Crowd booed as Davey Boy Smith, in street clothes, made his way to the ring with mic in hand. Bret looked on as Smith climbed into the ring and started walking around.

    Bret: "What do you want, Davey?"

    Smith: "You said you buried the hatchet with Dynamite after your match at 'Spring Breakout'."

    Bret: "And?"

    Smith: "Well, I buried your buddy Dynamite in this ring last week!"

    Crowd booed.

    Bret: "The great thing about this sport is that anything can happen. Wrestling is called human chess for a reason."

    Smith (mockingly): "Wrestling is called human chess for a reason."

    Smith turned serious.

    Smith: "I came out here because I had something to say, Bret.

    "These fans love you and the Hart family. You're all considered legends in our business.

    "But I'm here to tell everyone the truth.

    "You see, Bret was one of 12 children of Stu and Helen Hart. I have known them all very well.

    "And the Hart kids were some of the most snotty, entitled people you could ever meet."

    More boos.

    Bret: "Davey, if you have something to say about me, fine. But don't bring my family into this."

    Smith: "I will talk about them if I feel it's important.

    "The kids were all spoiled brats. They were the children of Canadian wrestling legend and shooter Stu Hart. They all acted like they were above everyone, not only in Calgary, but all of Alberta."

    Bret: "Hey! Hey! Hey! You know that's not true! Don't push it, Davey! I mean it!"

    Smith: "Stu was said to be a great trainer of wrestlers. Ha! Stu Hart was one of the most sadistic men I ever met in my life!"

    Bret: "Leave my father out of this! Don't go there..."

    Smith: "You see, in the famous Hart Dungeon, where Stu supposedly trained wrestlers, he would torture the trainees by twisting their bodies in ways they weren't supposed to be twisted. Stu, being the sadist he was, liked to record the sounds of the aspiring wrestlers screaming out in great pain. Stu sometimes made them pass out in the holds he locked them in. And Stu found it funny. That's how ol' shooter Stu got his kicks.

    "There was also blood on the walls of the Dungeon. That was because Stu also like to make those he trained bleed."

    Bret: "That's enough!"

    Smith: "I'm not done! Nooooooooooooo sir!

    "Stu cared nothing about the wrestlers not named Hart who worked in Stampede! He was a lousy payoff guy! He made us travel around in this rickety old van on dangerous roads in winter to get from town to town for each show! Cared nothing about our safety! We all had to struggle to survive! That is...unless your last name was Hart!"

    Bret: "That's it!

    "Davey, you're such a liar! My father may have locked guys in some painful holds in the dungeon! But he did it to toughen the boys up for a life in wrestling! The blood on the walls?! This is a combat sport in case you've forgotten! Sometimes, guys training together would bust each other open! This ain't ballet!

    "My father paid as well as he could considering the size of the territory! And guys at the bottom always, no matter where you started in this business, didn't make a lot of money! They were learning their craft!

    "And we treated you like one of the family, Davey! You stayed in our home! You ate our food! You trained with us Hart kids! You thanked my father for all he had done for you! What happened, Davey?! You forget that?!

    Smith: "Looking back, Bret, I was wrong when I thanked your dad for what he had done for me.

    "Once I got out of the Hart House of Horrors, I was able to see clearly! And what I saw was that your dad was just a manipulator! He was nothing but a user of people to line his pockets and boost his own ego and reputation..."

    Bret suddenly slapped the mic out of Smith's hand.

    Crowd buzzing.

    Davey threw up his hands and backed off as Bret glared at him. Smith then turned like he was gonna leave the ring. Bret made the mistake of turn his head and Smith spun around and dropped Bret with a sucker punch to the jaw. Bret dropped the mic. Smith stomped away on Bret, snapped Bret up, backed into the corner and charged out and blasted Bret with his running powerslam finisher. Bret laid out in the ring.

    Smith picked up his mic off the mat.

    Smith walked over and stood over the laid out Bret.

    Smith: "Stu! I wish you were around to see this! This is your legacy! Right here!"

    Smith pointed down at Bret.

    Smith stood over Bret for a few seconds longer before tossing the mic and leaving the ring and heading back up the aisle to boos.)

    (Announcers discussed Smith verbally and physically attacking Bret. Then sent it backstage.)

    (Backstage: Scott Hudson.

    Randy Savage was standing in the WCW Interview Center with his back turned to the camera.

    Hudson: "I'm here in the WCW Interview Center with Randy Savage.

    "Randy, tonight you're facing the 'World's Greatest Athlete' Terry Taylor in a re-match from 'Spring Breakout'.

    "Taylor was out here earlier and seems confident in scoring another victory over you. Your thoughts?"

    Savage was still facing the wall.

    Savage: "Tonight, the 'Macho Man' has a shot at redemption. Yeah."

    Savage slowly spun around and removed his sunglasses.

    Savage: "Terry Taylor, ummm-hmmm, he says that he's the greatest athlete in the world. Not just the greatest athlete in wrestling; the greatest athlete in the entire world.

    "But even the best of the best lose sometimes. Dig it?!

    "And tonight's my chance to make Terry Taylor feel the sting of the insanity that is 'Macho Madness' and hand him one of those rare defeats!

    "Oh Yeah!"

    Savage walked out of the interview area.

    Hudson: "It's Randy Savage vs. the self-proclaimed 'World's Greatest Athlete' Terry Taylor in our main event and it's coming up!)

    (Commercials)

    (Backstage: Scott Hudson.

    Hudson was standing in the WCW Interview Center.

    Hudson: "I'm here with Tony Garea of the championship committee.

    "Tony, earlier tonight you fined Manny Fernandez $5,000 dollars for hitting Don Muraco twice. But, there was no punishment for Muraco for the incendiary statements he made about the the heritage of Tito and Manny. Why?"

    Garea: "I warned both sides not to get physical with each other tonight. I was more than clear on that. Manny struck Don Muraco on two occasions.

    "A blatant disregard for rules laid down by a WCW official cannot be tolerated, Scott."

    Hudson: "But..."

    Garea: "But nothing. What Muraco said was odious. But they were words, Scott. Words. Fight words with more words. Manny may have said stuff as unsavory as what Muraco said. But at least it would have been only talk.

    "Manny crossed the line and will pay for it.

    "However, next week, it has been decided by the match-making committee that the main event on 'Mayhem' will be Don Muraco and Jimmy Snuka vs. The Skyscrapers."

    Hudson: "Sounds like that may be a punishment for Snuka and Muraco as they head into their tag team title re-match on the 'Mayhem' third anniversary show on April 17th.

    "And..."

    Voice off-camera: "Garea! Garea!"

    A still hurting Bret Hart came walking into the picture.

    Bret: "I don't care what anybody has to do! I want a match with Davey Boy Smith...soon!"

    Bret stalked off.

    Garea: "That's gonna have to be taken up with the match-making committee."

    Bret (off-camera): "Just get it done!"

    Garea and Hudson looked on as the segment ended.)
