Re: Florida Championship Wrestling 89
Gordon has regained his composure and tells us the scheduled TV title match between Tyree Pride and Buzz Sawyer has been called off, due to Buzz Sawyer being injured by Abdullah the Butcher earlier in the night. (Actually Sawyer has been suspended for a week by company leaders Dusty, Mike Graham, and Buddy Colt for excessive hazing of young wrestlers/preliminary wrestlers and drunkenness affecting his ring performance).
Instead, we will go straight to the FCW World Tag Team title match, with Al and Lou Perez defending against the second generation talents, Kendall Windham and Dustin Rhodes. The Perez brothers come to the ring with the 2 Live Crew music filling the stadium, there are some cheers but it's probably more due to their music than popularity except for a few females. Kendall and Dustin come to the ring to "Wanted Dead or Alive" by Bon Jovi.
We're ready to go but before we do Al Perez grabs the mic and tells the audience how he's insulted to be defending the titles against a couple of "punks who just are getting a title shot because of their last names." Lou gets the mic and gives a couple of insults too before Dustin and Kendall go on the attack, running the Perez brothers out of the ring and building up their cheers which had been lackluster as they came down the aisle.
Dustin and Kendall keep up the pace with quick in and out tags and Gordon tells us it's no surprise they're so smooth given their dads and Kendall's brother being successful tag wrestlers in the past, they've probably gotten a lot of training. The youngsters finally make a mistake, as Dustin is baited into the ring to stop a doubleteam and the Perez brothers throw Kendall over the top rope while the referee is distracted.
Gordon reminds us Kendall and Dustin are fighting for the world tag team titles and the fans start to get into it as Kendall mounts a comeback. Whip into the ropes and Lou tries a high drop kick but Kendall has held on to the top rope and Lou hits the mat hard. We hear a loud roar from the crowd and Gordon says the crowd is encouraging Kendall to make the tag, but instead it's Kevin Sullivan! Sullivan drags Dustin Rhodes off the ring apron, with Dustin hitting his head on the way down. Sullivan is putting the boots to Dustin and Kendall, already weakened, gets one too and is unable to help.
Al Perez has helped Lou out of the ring and we hear Al tell his brother "We don't want any part of that" as they head to the back. The bell rings repeatedly and Sullivan, not bandaged, one eye swelled shut, and forehead still bloody from earlier, takes out a blade and cuts Dustin in full view of everyone. Crowd is in shock as Dustin is bleeding heavily. One fan, not a plant and not a planned event, tries to jump over the ring barrier but Sullivan waves the blade at him and the fan backs down.
Finally out come Dusty Rhodes, Barry Windham, Blackjack Mulligan and a posse of 10 other wrestlers. Dustin is is very bad shape and convulsing and Dusty is speechless, just glaring at Sullivan while doing his best to help Dustin Rhodes onto a stretcher along with EMTs.
This is your fault, Sullivan yells at Dusty while walking away slowly. All this blood, it's on your hands!
Gordon apologizes for the whole incident and tells us it's of no importance, but Kendall and Dustin won the match by disqualification and should get another title match in the future. With Dustin severely injured, he doesn't know when it will be. He does know one thing, there will be hell to pay for Kevin Sullivan but says Dusty can't overlook his match with Bam Bam Bigelow later tonight.
