Heavyweight: Terry Funk
Tag: Kevin Sullivan & Tazmaniac
We open up with the ending of last week.
Lenny Kravitz’s “Are You Gonna Go MY Way” plays over a highlight package of the triple threat match.
Joey Styles welcomes us to the show. He tells us that tonight Tod Gordon will announce the main event to the next big Arena show on March 5th.
And Jay Sulli is with Tod right now. Gordon says the NWA Board of Directors has said that Shane Douglas gets a title shot against Champion Terry Funk on the 5th. Paul E Dangerously busts into the interview and he and Gordon argue with each. Gordon says since he is still the commissioner he gets to name the stipulation and he will do that next week.
“The Franchise” Shane Douglas (w/ Sherri Martel) vs. Chad Austin ref Jim Molineaux
911 and Paul E charge the ring and 911 pulls Austin out of the ring. Sabu hits the ring now and they brawl for a bit until the locker room empties to pull them apart.
Paul E is in the locker room and he says Shane Douglas is now the hunted one.
Pitbull & Rockin’ Rebel (w/ Jason) vs. JT Smith & “Ironman” Tommy Cairo ref Jim Molineaux
After about a minute with cut to commercial. Rebel and Pitbull tag back and forth beating on Cairo. Ptibull hits a power bomb and belly to belly. That’s about the only moves done. Double clothesline between Cairo and Rebel. Smith and Pitbull tag in. Smith hits a fall away slam on both Rebel and Pitbull. Smith with a sunset flip for the win in 5.10.
Jason and Mr. Hughes hype March 5th. Hughes takes on Hawk.
Highlights of Dreamer Snuka from last week.
Mr. Hughes (w/ Jason) vs. Hack Myers ref Jim Molineaux
Hughes squashes Myers hitting a suplex and nice drop kick before the bossman slam for the pin in 2.14.
Joey tells us that Jay Sulli was in the ring interviewing Sandman and Peaches when Jason, Pitbull and Rockin’ Rebel came out. We go to the ring and they argue a bit and then Rebel splashes a liquid in the Sandman’s eyes. Sandman is blinded and in all the craziness he backhands the crap out of Peaches. Sandman shakes it off and doesn’t seem to care about what happened to her. “Ironman” Tommy Cairo comes out and carries her to the back as Sandman just walks away about ten steps in front of them.
Bruise Brothers vs. Johnny Hotbody & Tony Stetson ref Jim Molineaux
Hotbody thrown from the ring right away and they go after Stetson. Hotbody finally makes it to the apron after a minute. The Harris brothers let Stetson into his corner but Hotbody refuses to tag in. Stetson ends up nailing Hotbody and throwing him into the ring and leaves. Hotbody is nailed with a double big boot and pinned in 3.31.
Tag Team Champions Kevin Sullivan & Tazmaniac (w/ Woman) vs. Young Dragons ref Jim Molineaux
The ref stops the match after 1.48 and DQs the champions for just beating the hell out of the Dragons. The Bruise Brothers come out and attack the champions Public Enemy come out and help fight off the Bruise Brothers but then they argue.
Public Enemy are in Tod Gordon’s office and they are stealing stuff and looking for a contract for an ECW Tag Ttile match.
My thoughts on the show
Squash Squash Squash. Looks like we are building to Sandman and Peaches breaking up. She took a sick look shot from Sandman tonight that was really the only thing worth mentioning.
