“The Doctor” TC Martin and Al Lorenz welcome us to the show and run down what we are going to see tonight.
Zuma vs. Samurai Warrior ref Jesse Hernandez (1995-05-12)
Zuma is a surfer, he would go onto greater fame as Tom Howard. There were so many surfing wrestlers around this time frame. Warrior with the early advantage but he goes up top and Zuma does a handstand on the buckle in ranas Warrior down. Butterfly suplex and tiltawhirl slam follow. Zuma goes to the apron and springboards into the ring with a shoulder tackle. Zuma off the ropes with an elbow drop and he goes to the apron. Spring board into a sunset flip but they end up tangled in the ropes. Zuma with a japanese arm drag and clothesline. Drop kick sends Warrior over the top and to the floor. Zuma goes up top and comes off with a somersault senton to the floor! Warrior sent into the ring post and then Zuma throws him back in the ring and again goes for the springboard sunset flip. Warrior ready for it this time and he nails Zuma. Zuma though immediately comes back with a head scissor and another japanese arm drag. Zuma follows it with a rana and goes back up top. Another somersault senton. Zuma with a jackknife pin for the 1, 2, 3 in 5.28.
Bill Anderson hypes July 22nd and brings in Honky Tonk Man. Honky says he signed with NWC because it’s the greatest wrestling organization of all time. Honky rants and raves again about how Warrior beat him 7 years ago.
TC Martin is at his desk and he shuffles a bunch of papers around and says everyone is talking about the NWC. Martin says NWC is for the fans and they should write in and tell him what they want to see.
Mr. Hughes vs. Lil Haystacks ref Jesse Hernandez (1995-04-14)
Hughes with a clothesline and big elbow drop. Drop kick and Hughes taunts Haystacks. Haystacks ducks a line and back elbow and goes for a cross body but gets caught in a side rib breaker. Hughes hits the sidewalk slam and gets the win in 4.
Bill Anderson is with Don Juan and Don says he is there for 3 reason and they all involved taking women and doing things to them. Anderson wants to know what Don’s going to do when he meets Zuma. Don says Anderson probably likes Zuma because he has homosexual tendencies. Anderson says Juan is disgusting and Juan says that Anderson’s wife didn’t think so.
Johnny “Psycho” Paine vs. Navajo Kid ref David Hogg (1995-05-12)
Kid with a few arm drags and a drop kick so Paine rolls to the floor. Paine clothesline Kid over the top and to the floor. Kid back in with a sunset flip for 2. He then ducks a clothesline and hits a cross body block for 2. Kid goes for a hip toss but Paine blocks it and hits a clothesline then a splash. Paine with a few elbow drops. Paine drops Kid on the top rope throat first. Kid with an enziguri for 2. Some back and forth and Paine hits a suplex for 2. Kid does a war dance and hits a chop and drop kick. Paine comes back and hits a forearm but picks up Kid at 2. Paine hits a clothesline for 2. DDT by Paine but he again picks up Kid. Paine brings a chair into the ring and tosses the ref over the top rope and smashes Kid into the chair. Some other Native dude comes in “because the Indian population is strong.” Kid wins by DQ in 10.10. This match was terrible.
Martin hypes July 22nd. We get the NWC’s top ten. All are former stars off WWF or WCW except Thug who comes in at 10. Warrior who they admit hasn’t even wrestled for them yet places at number 4.
Bill Anderson brings in Cactus Jack. Jack talks about all the injuries he has received at the hands of Sabu.
Cactus Jack vs. Sabu ref Jesse Hernandez Desert Death Match(1994-10-29)
Originally reviewed for the Wrestling Ringside promo video. Sabu nails Cactus and dents a chair over his head. Cactus suplex Sabu through a table that a bunch of old people are sitting at. Great. They continue to brawl around ringside. Cactus suplexes a table onto Sabu. Into the ring Cactus hits a double arm DDT. Clothesline over the top. Apparently Cactus nailed Sabu with a piledriver on a poker table. That would have been cool to see. Cactus gets hunts in-between the top and middle rope. Sabu jumps off a chair and lands onto of Cactus’ head sending him to the floor. Sabu misses a springboard moonsault and crashes through a table on the floor. Cactus comes off the apron with an elbow drop. Sabu comes off the middle rope with an arabian face buster for the win. 4.41 was shown of what they said was over 40.
Bill Anderson brings in Honky Tonk again and he talks about Warrior to hype their match on the 22nd.
My thoughts on the show
Zuma match was pretty good. Would have liked to see more of the Desert Death Match
