081 – WRESTLING SUPERSTARS
Live from Golden State Wrestling Studios, Burbank, CA!
The sound of bagpipes fill the air as, newcomer, Rowdy Roddy Piper makes his way to the ring. Golden State Wrestling fans are definitely curious about this newcomer in a kilt!
Rowdy Roddy Piper d. Mister X via submission with the SLEEPER – SQUASH – Piper wastes no time sending a clear message that he has arrived in GSW.
PIPER: You may not know me yet, but I can promise you ain’t gonna forget me!
From the cheers, it seems to have some fans here in the GSW.
George “The Animal” Steele d. One Man Gang via submission with the FLYING HAMMERLOCK – * – Big win by The Animal here! Captain Lou Albano seemed very pleased. After the match Albano was asked about the whereabouts of Missing Link. Albano shocks the crowd by saying that Link had grown to unpredictable and, with Steele, too much to handle so he has ‘sent him where he can get the help he deserves.’ Former champion, Missing Link gone from the GSW? Shocking fans!
King Harley Race d. Andre the Giant via pinfall after two PILEDRIVERs in a row – **1/2 – The King does, seemingly, the impossible! He hoists the Giant up for not now, but two Piledrivers! This was enough to put the big man down for good. Heenan celebrates wildly after the match and mocks the Giant now prone on the mat!
Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka d. “Ravishing” Rick Rude via pinfall after the SUPERFLY LEAP – ***1/2 – Snuck’as battle with the Heenan Family continues and he gets a big win here over the former #1 Contender to the WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP.
KILLER BEES d. THE ROAD WARRIORS when B. Brian Blair locked Hawk in a Sleeper – * – It goes without saying that this is a huge win for Blair and Brunzell! The champs seem to have lost some focus after losing to THE BOLSHEVIKS. They leave ringside, with Ellering without making a comment. The fans, and they have many, seemed concerned.
BILL APTER’S HOT SEAT
GUESTS: WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION The Iron Sheik and WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS THE BOLSHEVIKS. The Iron Sheik and THE BOLSHEVIKS are greeted with a loud chorus of boos. Iron Sheik says he doesn’t care what the ‘stupid Americans’ think. The IRON CURTAIN (name of their stable) holds all the gold in GSW and they will for years to come. He also says that while the superior wrestling ability of himself and Volkoff and Zukhov are largely responsible for their success, it was the brains of one man who laid out the plan and made this happen.
IRON SHEIK: I present to you, the mastermind, Classy Freddie Blassie!
Dressed in sequin, from head to toe and carrying a cane, Classy Freddie Blassie makes his entrance.
BLASSIE: Classy Freddie Blassie, the manager of champions, has arrived, you pencil necked geeks!
What plans could Blassie have for his men? Time will tell!
Magnificent Muraco d. Terry Gordy via DQ after Gordy slams Muraco on the arena floor – *1/2 – Muraco demanded this rematch after STARRCADE, now that it was known that THE UNKOWN was ROOKIE BRAWL winner, Terry Gordy! The bad blood still flowed and Gordy got himself disqualified for his actions outside the ring! The two continued to brawl after the bell as the credit started to roll.
