076 – WRESTLING SUPERSTARS
Live from GSW Studios, Burbank, CA!
Missing Link and One Man Gang brawled to a DOUBLE DQ. – *1/2 – The two big men battle to a chair smashing double DQ in what looks to be a new feud! Gang, eager to prove he’s still tough after losing his feud to Andre pulls out all the stops! Missing Link gladly answers.
Cousin Luke d. King Kong Bundy via submission with a bear hug. – ** – HUGE win here for Cousin Luke! Bundy’s return looking for some measure of justice against the Hillbillies and it appears his ribs are still sore from when Hilbilly Jim sent him to the injured list with the same move! Cousin Luke did a jig around the ring in celebration as Heenan helped Bundy to the back.
KILLER BEES d. THE BUSHWHACKERS via DQ when Bushwhacker Butch whipped B. Brian Blair into the guardrails. – DUD – The wild, unpredictability of THE BUSHWHACKERS are seemingly the thing holding them back from getting any wins.
George “The Animal” Steele d. S.D. Jones via submission with the FLYING HAMMERLOCK. – * – Solid win here for the newly returned wild man. It’ll be interesting to see where he goes now that he’s put The Mountie out of action.
Magnificent Muraco d. The Unknown via DQ when The Unknown slammed Muraco’s head into the guardrails at ringside. – ** – This was a great back and forth battle. Muraco actually was close to winning a time or two and nearly had The Unknown’s hood off, but we weren’t to find out who’s under it on this night. As soon as the bell rang The Unknown slipped back into the crowd.
BILL APTER’S HOT SEAT:
THE DREAM TEAM came out and admitted that they have fallen short of their quest to be legitimate contenders for the WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP. So they’ve turned to a new manager who has held the very belt they are after: Luscious Johnny V! 1/2 of the former GSW team, The Valiant Brothers, Johnny V has returned to attempt to guide THE DREAM TEAM to the gold and he said with his guidance, no other team in the GSW would be able to stop them! This brought out Jim Cornette and THE MIDNIGHT EXPRESS! Cornette said that The MIDNIGHT EXPRESS has way more of a history of gold than THE VALIANTS ever had and that THE DREAM TEAM could ever ‘dream’ of having! A huge brawl erupted and security was called to separate the six men! This brought out Commissioner Patrick who booked the two teams against each other on Wrestling Challenge!
WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP
NO DQ – NO COUNTOUT – NO ONE ALLOWED AT RINGSIDE
Iron Sheik d. “Ravishing” Rick Rude via submission with THE CAMEL CLUTCH to become the new WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION! – ****1/2 – The fans didn’t know what to think about this match as both men are pretty hated, but like it or not there is a new WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION! Immediately Nikolai Volkoff and Boris Zhukov ran out to celebrate with the Iron Sheik, Rude for his part shrunk away, glaring occasionally over his shoulder at the in-ring celebration!
Fans were treated to the Iranian National Anthem being played as we…
Great card! Im anxious to find out who this UNKNOWN guy really is. Link and Gang should be an interesting feud and perhaps a bit bloody. So the Iron Sheik humbled Rude, too bad we had to get treated to the Iranian National Anthem. Cant wait to see the next card.
