We are back at the show after a long delay due to lightning in the area. Gordon informs the viewers that Dustin Rhodes has been transported to a local hospital for the treatment of his injuries. Dusty Rhodes has accompanied his son, Gordon says, leaving the FCW world title match tonight against Bam Bam Bigelow in doubt.
The crowd is now filing back into their seats after the storm and we're ready for an AWA world title match. Barry Windham, who nearly turned heel after his jealousy over Dusty Rhodes's quick rise in the territory, is challenging Larry Zbyszko. The champ is featured constantly on ESPN's AWA wrestling on weekday afternoons but that show is not performing well in the ratings and is drawing low crowds.
Zbyszko comes to the ring first even though he is the champ. He stops by the announcer's table and says that's not a way to respect a world champion. Gordon asks if he's going to get in the ring and wrestle or if he is going to complain all night. Zbyszko says he's never liked Gordon and he still doesn't before going to the ring.
Out comes Barry Windham to a huge roar from the crowd. Windham jumps into the ring and Zbyszko flees as the bell rings. The champ stalls but Windham manages to corner him outside the ring and pummels him with punches and chops, before throwing him back in.
Zbyszko is getting literally no offense at all and Gordon asks if this will be a quick match. On cue, the champ gets the ref to look away by yelling "There's Abdullah!" and while his back is turned, pokes Windham in the eye. Zbyszko manages to take a small rope out of his boot and chokes Windham whenever he can, more than evening up the matchup.
Crowd is going wild trying to inform the referee of this cheating tactics but Zbyszko is too sneaky. After kicks and punches, Zbyszko tries the piledriver and Gordon says this would end the match, but Windham reverses and manages to backflip the champ. Windham is now in control and the crowd is even louder, despite being not too familiar with Zbyszko they really are already hating him.
Windham continues the offense and Gordon says Zbyszko is in real trouble as he will have no one here to help him. His words are true as Windham gets the clean pin after the flying lariat. Crowd goes crazy as Windham is awarded the championship belt. Halfway up the aisle Windham is met by Greg Gagne and Wildside. Windham shakes Gagne's hand and the four men head to the back and Gordon asks out loud what is this all about.
After Windham and the others have gone to the locker room, Zbyszko is still in the ring yelling and complaining that he was cheated. He gets on the microphone and says Windham attacked him before the bell and that should make the pin void, and says Windham held the tights on the pin plus it was a fast count by referee Bill Alfonso. The fans are still letting him have it after he finally leaves the ring and heads to the back.
Things die down then pick up again quickly as we hear "Hot Stuff" by Donna Summer over the loudspeakers throughout the stadium. The crowd is booing the heck out of Eddie Gilbert as he heads to the ring without Missy Hyatt, who he pushed down earlier. Gilbert gets on the microphone and says he doesn't need his brother Doug Gilbert, doesn't need Missy Hyatt, doesn't need the Perez brothers and most of all, doesn't need the idiots in the crowd that are too stupid to recognize greatness when they see it.
Gilbert's rant is cut off by "Tough Enough" by the Fabulous Thunderbirds. Scott Hall marches to the ring to a big roar as the fans want to see him shut Gilbert up. The match is the final of the Florida title tournament.
Hall takes the early advantage with his strength and size overcoming Gilbert's quickness and cheating. Gilbert dares Hall to try a test of strength, to Hall's amusement, and Gilbert ends up running out of the ring after being dominated. The crowd is eating it up and letting Gilbert have it.
Gilbert finally gets some offense after leading Hall near the ropes, before entering the ring. He pulls Hall's leg forward then brings him out of the ring and smashes his head into the ring barrier. The referee, Scrappy McGowan gets on Gilbert and Gordon says since the match is for the Florida title, the referee is giving the wrestlers more leeway in breaking the rules.
Gilbert throws Hall back into the ring and continues to work him over for the most part, and then we see get a mix of roars and boos as Missy Hyatt comes down to ringside. Gilbert smiles and goes out to greet her then Missy slaps the taste out of his mouth! Gilbert threatens to push Missy down for the third time in recent days but is grabbed from behind by the recovered Scott Hall, and Doug Gilbert has come down to ringside to help Missy.
Hall is on offense now and Missy, not surprisingly is cheering for him to beat Gilbert. Hall sends Gilbert into the ropes and Gilbert runs into Missy, who was up on the ring apron cheering. Missy is down outside the ring and Gilbert ignores her, while the referee and Hall walk over to the ropes.
With the referee outside the ring helping Missy, things move quickly as Doug Gilbert enters from the opposite side and hands Eddie a chain! Hall is nailed with the ref aiding Missy, and McGowan comes back into the ring for the 3 count as the crowd is extremely upset.
Hall is out cold in the center of the ring and the Gilberts continue to put the boots to him. Missy has recovered and comes in, gets to them to stop and walks to Hall who is leaned up against a corner and dazed. Missy gives the Gilberts the badmouth, how they could be such cheaters, etc, then slaps Hall across the face!
The crowd did not see that coming at all and starts to really let Missy have it, and Gordon is shocked too. Missy gives Doug a big hug and gives Eddie a big kiss as Eddie gets back on the microphone. Al and Lou Perez come out to the ring too and all four put the boots to Hall between Eddie's comments.
Eddie tells the fans they were idiots, Gordon he's an idiot, and most of all, Scott Hall, he's an idiot. There were never a problem with the First Family, Eddie says, and that Doug, Al and Lou are his best friends. It was all a trick and everybody fell for it, Eddie says and Missy gets in on that act too, telling Scott Hall he's a loser and could never have a woman like her.
The four and Missy finally leave the ring as help from the back arrives. Gordon is disgusted as Eddie raises the Florida belt over his head. All five gets showered with beer and soft drinks by the irate crowd and start to pick up their pace as some of the fans look ready to jump the barrier. Police hold them back and Gilbert gets in a few more insults before the group gets all the way to the back.
Before the start of the next match we have an interview in the back with Oliver Humperdink and Bam Bam Bigelow. Buddy Colt tells the two that Dusty Rhodes is at the hospital with his son thanks to Kevin Sullivan so they may not get their world title match tonight.
Humperdink mocks Colt, telling him for someone who should know what's happening in FCW, he doesn't know much. Humperdink pulls out the match contract which he says has a clause in it. If Dusty Rhodes is counted out, he loses the title. Colt says there would not be a match if Dusty can't make it and brings in referee Bill Alfonso who says he would have to start the match and give Dusty 10 seconds to get into the ring. Colt is extremely angry with Humperdink who laughs and mocks him. Bigelow says Dusty is a coward who is just looking to get out of being beaten up.
We go back to the ring and the Nasty Boys come out to the tune of Janet Jackson's "Nasty". Crowd gives them quite a few boos, but the crowd is a bit worn down after the delay, 2 big matches, and the announcement by Buddy Colt.
The crowd picks up as the Fantastics charge to the ring with "Everybody Wants You" by Billy Squier playing loudly. They clear the Nasties out of the ring then the match officially starts.
Double teaming by both teams throughout the match keeps the crowd going pretty loudly. Brian Knobbs manages to reverse an Irish whip by Bobby Fulton, then sends Fulton over the top rope while Jerry Sags distracts the referee. The challengers do a number of Fulton, who bleeds after being hit with a chair by Knobbs outside the ring.
Fulton crawls back into the ring and after several punches by Sags, blocks a punch after getting loud support from the crowd. Fulton knocks Sags down and gets the tag to high flying Tommy Rogers who leaps to the top rope and destroys Sags with a dropkick. Sags rolls out of the ring and is is done for the match.
The Fantastics pull Knobbs into the ring and work him over too, with a double elbow smash, a double elbow drop then a double backdrop. Knobbs is not the legal man in the ring and Sags is counted out while Knobbs continues to be punished. The Nasties regroup and tell the Fantastics since they weren't pinned they will get another match and things will be different next time, then the Fanastics leave the ring after doing a good job of keeping the fans revved up for the next match, the main event.
