Re: Universal Wrestling League
UWL 'SLAM!' WRESTLING - EP. 113 - GRAND RAPIDS, MI - DELTAPLEX ARENA - 3-19-13 (Live)
(Show opened with video from last week of Wahoo McDaniel laying out his 'best friend' Roddy Piper with a belt shot to the back of the head and then leaving the ring and Nash pinning Piper with the jack-knife powerbomb and Hall and Nash re-claiming the World Tag Team Titles and then a camera caught Wahoo leaving the building and ignoring pleas for an explanation from interviewer Larry Nelson and Wahoo getting into a waiting car driven by JJ Dillon and driving off into the night.)
(Announcers Steve Stack and Joe Pedicino welcomed viewers and talked about the stunning turn of events last week at the end of the program between Roddy and Wahoo. Hyped coming up on the program: Both Roddy Piper and Wahoo McDaniel will be here. Announcers assume Wahoo will be with JJ; Madusa vs. Molly Holly; Pres. Watts will announce a decision on whether or not the $100,000 Bench Press Challenge will happen between 'Superstar' Graham and Ken Patera; an i'view w/ Arn Anderson; a look back at the stunning end of last week's Handicap match re-match pitting Lord Humongous & Missing Link against the Anderson Brothers; Hugh Morrus vs. Grog; DDP vs. 'Bad Boy' Brunzell; the debut of the Nasty Boys; Schultz & Rude vs. the Mighty Texans; and more.)
(In-ring: 'Money' by Pink Floyd played over the p.a. system and all six members of The Firm came to the ring. DiBiase was in a suit and Hall, Nash and Rhodes were in street clothes and Schultz and Rude were in their ring attire. They received a mixed crowd reax coming to the ring. All six had mics.
Once in the ring, the group played to the crowd. Hall and Nash paraded around the ring showing off the tag team titles.
Nash: "The tag team titles have come back to where they belong! But no talk of Hall and Nash regaining the World Tag Team Titles would be complete without mentioning one special person who deserves a special thank you for playing a major role in our victory last Tuesday night! That man is Wahoo McDaniel!"
Crowd booed Wahoo's name.
Nash: "Oh my! Aren't we a fickle bunch! You all loved Wahoo until the end of 'Slam!' last week! And then, when he finally came to his senses and gave Piper what he so richly deserved, now you hate him! You're pissed because Wahoo finally saw the light! You're mad because Wahoo finally realized that Roddy Piper was keeping him down! You're angry because Wahoo stood up for himself, said I'm not gonna take it anymore, and let Piper have it! Now, I wish Wahoo would have joined The Firm! He didn't! Wahoo cast his lot with JJ Dillon! We don't agree with that decision of Wahoo's one stinkin' bit! But even The Firm admires Wahoo taking a stand against Roddy Piper!
"Winning these tag team titles back last week was huge! The UWL had all the momentum on their side the last few weeks in the war with The Firm! That one victory by us completely shifted the momentum back in our favor! The Firm has become the predator again and the UWL is the prey! Think about it?! Just one win by us! And the shaky foundation the UWL side was standing on came crashing down! Those of you rooting for the UWL in this war, if you don't pray now then you need to start! This is the begining of our side re-asserting our position in this war! And that position is the winning one!"
Hall: "Hey yo! Gotta give props to Wahoo McDaniel, man! It's like he was acting as an honorary Firm member a week ago! I was shocked when he slammed that tag team belt into the back of Roddy Piper's head! But I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy it! Seeing Wahoo come to his senses and finally leave the Scotsman in the dust was a thing of beauty! Like Kev, I wish Wahoo would have joined up with The Firm! But, we all have choices to make! The key thing to remember is Wahoo has broken free from the shackles that Roddy Piper placed on him! Good job, Wahoo!
"The war continues! I saw some stuff on the Internet recently that said The Firm was near defeat against the UWL! One guy said we were on life support! If we were on life support entering that World Tag Team Title match last week...we pulled ourselves off of it, man! That's the way The Firm operates! You can't kill us! We are driven by the goals we intend to accomplish here! Like in any war, we went through a rough period but now we're out of it! We're back on top! And it's gonna be The Firm who starts to roll now! You just watch, see and learn!"
Rhodes: "Wahoo! I still don't like you, jack! I can't stand you! But I loved what you did to Roddy Piper last week! It was like watching a satisfying ending to a movie that, up until that time was a stinker! You guys were such good friends and it got nauseating to hear about it every week! But last Tuesday, Wahoo, you showed the world that you were no longer gonna play second fiddle to Roddy Piper! You realized that winning the World Championship and making lots and lots of monaaaaay was more important than having a friend who was nothing more than a hindrance to your career! I liked what I saw! But I still don't like you, Wahoo!
"All the struggles The Firm had been going through recently vanished in three seconds last week on 'Slam!'. As Hall and Nash have already said, this win puts us back in the driver's seat in our war with the UWL! And The Firm is gonna drive this car all the way to victory! And once we cross the finish line we're gonna be the new masters of this company!"
Rude: "Short and sweet! Great job last week, Wahoo! I wanna talk about something else that happened last week! David Schultz and I defeated the Mulkey brothers in a tag team match! After the match, we decided to give everyone a crash course in Spike Piledriving 101! While we were showing our class the finer nuances of the move on both Mulkeys, two men, and I use the term 'men' loosely here because no one really seems to know what the hell they are, named Lord Humongous and the Missing Link, made the decision to stick their nose in a course study that had nothing to do with them at all! So, Dark Journey, you may need to explain this to your men with cave drawings or something, Humongous and Link meddled in Firm business! They're now on our growing list of enemies here in the UWL! They are walking around with a big proverbial bullseye on their heads! And they will pay for screwing with The Firm!"
Schultz: "Lord Humongous and Missing Link! Man! You boys really stepped into the squishy brown stuff when you decided to take on members of The Firm! Do you think we're just gonna forget about it?! Think we're just gonna walk away?! Hell no! That's not the way it works with us! Lord Humongous! None of us are scared of you! You walk around wearing that old school hockey mask and beating your chest and pointing at people and all that! That kind of stuff doesn't make The Firm back off! It doesn't make us shake in our shoes! And Missing Link! I don't know what evolutionary pool of green slime you emerged from, but someone forgot to keep that pool clean because you seem like one completely out-of-whack individual! What normal person runs around beating his own head on ring posts and steel chairs?! You guys want us?! You know where to find us! We don't hide! And remember this! When you fight one member of The Firm you're fighting every member of The Firm!"
DiBiase: "Like others have said here tonight, I also want to congratulate Wahoo McDaniel for doing the right thing and abandoning Roddy Piper. But, I want to add one more thing. Wahoo, since you're not a member of The Firm, that still means you're on the UWL side in this war. That means you're still an enemy of The Firm. Cross us in any way and you will feel our wrath. We don't care what side of the tracks any UWL wrestler walks on. They're all enemies of The Firm.
"Hall and Nash! Great job on 'Slam!' last week! You guys deserved to win those tag team titles back and you did it! It seems like the titles were on loan for a week! And then...time's up! The belts came home where they belong! And with the World Tag Team Titles back in our possession, it's time for The Firm to start concentrating their attention on winning the President's Championship, the UWL TV Title and the grandest prize of them all...the UWL World Title! Once we have all the male championships in our possession then it will be time to start implementing the final phase of our plan! And that is the complete takeover of the UWL! Everything swung back in our favor last week! People who started writing obituaries about The Firm were greatly pre-mature in their smarmy, self-righteous ballyhooing of our demise! And those obituaries are never going to be printed because we're not losing this war! We're gonna win! And those who stand in our way will eventually find themselves crushed under the weight of our might and steely determination! It's all about will-to-power in a war! And The Firm has the stronger will! You can bet on it!"
'Money' played over the p.a. system and The Firm left the ring and headed back up the aisle to a mixed crowd reax.)
(Announcers discussed The Firm i'view. Hyped coming up on the program: Both Roddy Piper and Wahoo McDaniel will be here. Announcers assume Wahoo will be with JJ; Pres. Watts will announce a decision on whether or not the $100,000 Bench Press Challenge will happen between 'Superstar' Graham and Ken Patera; an i'view w/ Arn Anderson; a look back at the stunning end of last week's Handicap match re-match pitting Lord Humongous & Missing Link against the Anderson Brothers; Hugh Morrus vs. Grog; DDP vs. 'Bad Boy' Brunzell; the debut of the Nasty Boys; Schultz & Rude vs. the Mighty Texans; and more. Said Madusa vs. Molly Holly was next.)
(Video aired from last week of Madusa once again promising Tina Ferrari that she was going to end Tina's title reign and undefeated streak in the UWL.)
Madusa vs. Molly Holly
(Molly Holly came to the ring to a decent ovation.
Madusa got a solid ovation coming to the ring and slapped hands with fans on the way.
Good match and Molly gave Madusa a battle but in the end, madusa nailed Molly with the German suplex into a birdgeout and scored the 1...2...3!
WINNER: Madusa - Pinfall - German Suplex into a Bridgeout - 6:29)
(After the match: Tina walked out on the entrance stage in an expensive, though skimpy, white dress, black heels, her trademark tiara and the title was slung over her shoulder. She had a mic and was booed.
Tina: "I must say, Madusa, that the last couple of opponents you have defeated are certainly a much better caliber than Honey Boo-Boo's mom that you beat a few weeks back. But in my book, that still doesn't put you in line for a title shot anytime soon. Guess you'll have to beat a few more high quality opponents before you can try and fulfill your promise to lead me to my demise."
Madusa took the r.a mic from r.a. Lee Marshall.
Madusa: "I'd crawl on rusty nails and broken glass through a raging inferno to get that next title shot against you, Tina. We're gonna have a match. And when that day comes, it will be the last day of your undefeated streak and your reign as the UWL Women's World Champion. That's a promise."
The two looked at each other from a distance as the segement ended.)
(Announcers discussed Madusa beating Molly and Tina coming out and Madusa promising Tina again that she would beat Tina the next time they wrestled and end Tina's undefeated streak and title reign. Hyped coming up on the program: Both Roddy Piper and Wahoo McDaniel will be here. Announcers assume Wahoo will be with JJ; Pres.

Said the debut of the Nasty Boys was coming up.)
(Video aired for the 'Extenze Presents: Spring Mayhem' PPV - Sunday - Apr. 14 - Rio Rancho, NM - Santa Ana Star Center - 8pm E/5pm P - Tickets on sale NOW!)
Nasty Boys vs. The Ding Dongs
(Nasty Boys got a good ovation coming to the ring. They were in their trademark black ring attire with black sleeveless t-shirts that said 'Nasty Boys' in white lettering across the front with multi-colored paint splatters all over the shirt. They also wore their paint-splattered black sunglasses as well. Nasty Boys played to the crowd once in the ring.
Total domination by the Nasty's. Match included the Nasty Boys famous 'Pit Stop' where Sags rubbed DD#1's face into Knobs' sweaty arm pit.
End of the match saw Sags tag in Knobs. Pair whipped DD#1 into the ropes and caught him coming off with the flapjack. Knobs covered DD#1 and scored the 1...2...3!
WINNER: Nasty Boys - Pinfall - Knobs pinned DD#1 after the Flapjack - 4:15)
(After the match: Lee Marshall i'viewed the Nasty Boys.
Lee welcomed the team and asked what their goals were in the UWL.
Knobs: "Lee Marshall! Hahaha! It's great to be here in the UWL because the UWL is the place to be and the Nasty Boys always love being in the place that is the place to be! Got that?!"
LM: "Not really."
Knobs: "Me, neither. But we're here to Nasty-size all these fans out here because if there's one thing we know, it's that the Nasty Boys know how to get nasty! Hahahaha! Wait a minute!"
Knobs sniffed at the air.
Knobs: "Sags! Did you let that one, man! It stinks to high heaven!"
Sags: "Naw! Don't put that one on me, Bri! I didn't let a fart! I mean, it's our debut! And I have a 'no farting' rule when making my first appearance in a new wrestling promotion!"
Knobs: "Well, I know I didn't do it! Because if I'd have done it I'd be shouting it from the rooftops! That thing reeks! Smells like rotten eggs and cheese puffs!"
Sags: "I know I didn't do it! You know you didn't do it! Then who did it?!"
Sags and Knobs slowly turned and looked at Marshall. Marshall was embarrassed.
Knobs: "Marshalllllllllllllllllll! Hahaha! Man! That was truly a nasty ass blast!"
LM (still embarrassed): "I'm sorry, guys. I had a loaded monster burrito earlier today. I guess it's coming back on me."
Sags: "More like it's coming out of ya! Hey! We should call him the 'Grim Reeker'! Hahahaha!"
Knobs: "How many kinds of meat were on it?!"
LM: "Really now. I don't...I...alright! It was six! Six kinds of meat and I loved every bite of it!"
Sags: "I think we just found the mayor of Nasty-ville!"
LM: "Sags and Knobs, we really need to get on with this interview!"
Sags and Knobs didn't listen and they hoisted Marshall up on their shoulders. Knobs got the mic from Marshall.
Knobs: "I give you the official mayor of Nasty-ville...Lee 'The Grim Reeker' Marshall!"
The two started parading Marshall around on their shoulders as the fans cheered and some chanted 'Nastys! Nastys!' Marshall, sincing there was no way out of this, started waving to the fans as the segment ended.)
(Announcers discussed the debut of the Nasty Boys and their making Lee Marshall the official mayor of Nasty-ville. Hyped coming up on the program: Both Roddy Piper and Wahoo McDaniel will be here. Announcers assume Wahoo will be with JJ; Pres. Watts will announce a decision on whether or not the $100,000 Bench Press Challenge will happen between 'Superstar' Graham and Ken Patera; an i'view w/ Arn Anderson; Hugh Morrus vs. Grog; DDP vs. 'Bad Boy' Brunzell; Schultz & Rude vs. the Mighty Texans; and more.

(Announcers intro'd video from last week of the end of the Handicap match re-match between the Anderson Bros. and Lord Humongous & Missing Link.
At the end of the match, Ole and Link were the legal men in the ring. Ole had nailed Lord with some punches and then grabbed Link by the tuft of hair on the back of his head and hit Link with a headbutt. Bad move. Link's hard head withstood the blow and Ole was the one on wobbly leg street. Link then started hammering Ole with headbutts of his own that at first staggered Ole and obliterated his brain cells. Ole staggered and stumbled around the ring and then crashed to the mat as the fans popped. Lars dropped off the apron and took off after Dark Journey. Journey was paying attention to the match and didn't see Lars come up from behind, hoist Journey on his shoulder and start walking away from ringside with his captor. Journey screamed and wriggled free of Lars' grasp and dropped to her feet on the floor and tried to run away but Lars grabbed her from behind around the waist. Journey struggled to get away but couldn't. Lord saw what was happening and dropped to the floor and came up behind Lars, spun Lars around and blasted Lars with a series of big punches to the head that put Lars on stagger street. Gene bolted the apron and charged up the aisle and jumped Lord from behind. Lord now fighting with both men.
Ref left the ring and went to restore order on the floor and get the men back to the ring. While that was going on, Link whipped Ole into the ropes and caught Ole coming off with a side slam. Crowd popped. Lord had fought back on the floor and was now having his way with Lars and Gene. Ref still on the floor trying to break things up. Back in the ring, Link picked up Ole and nailed him with the high angle spinebuster (aka, Alabama Slam). Link covered Ole but there was no ref to count. Fight raged on the floor and the ref was still trying to restore order. Link got up in the ring and was looking around. A man in a baseball cap came through the crowd and hopped the ringside barricade and quickly got in the ring behind Link. The man was Ron Garvin. Gravin cocked his fist. Link turned around...WHAM!...Garvin blasted Link with his knockout punch. Link staggered but didn't go down. Garvin flinched, shook out his right hand and blasted Link with his KO punch a second time. The punch staggered Link some more but he didn't go down. Garvin again winced and this time briefly grabbed his hand. Garvin re-loaded and hit Link with his KO punch a third time. Link crashed to the mat. Garvin put the out of it Ole on top of Link and then bolted the ring and fled the scene back through the crowd.
The fighting tailed off on the floor and the ref was able to get the warring parties separated. Ref turned and saw Ole on top of Link and immediately slid back into the ring. 1...2...3! Ref called for the bell.)
(Backstage: Larry Nelson interview.
LN: "Please welcome my guest at this time...the 'Bounty Hunter' Ron Garvin."
Garvin walked into the interview area as fans in the arena booed his appearance on the JumboTron. Garvin's right hand was bandaged.
LN: "'Bounty Hunter'."
RG: "Please. Call me Ron."
LN: "Ron, I have to ask about the right hand. You've got it really bandaged up. Did you hurt it punching Missing link in the head three times?"
RG: "Yes, I injured my hand punching the Missing Link in the head."
LN: "I'm guessing since it took three of your knockout punches instead of the usual one to get the job done that Missing Link's head is as hard as they say it is?"
RG: "I'd say it's much harder than people think it is, Larry. It was like punching one of those big, thick steel bank vault doors. His head did a number on my hand. But it's healing up well. I have been taking care of it real good. I'll be able to get back in the ring in no time."
LN: "Any broken bones?"
RG: "Thankfully, no. I've got other bounty contracts to fulfill and a broken hand would have put me on the shelf for a while. I don't work then I don't get paid. I was stunned by just how hard Missing Link's head really was. It's never taken me three knockout punches to put anyone down. Ever."
LN: "I'm assuming the Anderson brothers paid you well for this bounty?"
RG: "You assume correctly. The Anderson brothers paid me quite well. I told them later that night that if they had any other bountys they needed taken care of to give me a call."
Pres. Watts walked into the interview area.
RG: "Nice to see you, Mr. President."
BW: "Garvin, I have been around a lot of shady characters in this business. But you might just take the cake."
RG: "Hey. It's just business with me. I have nothing personal against the Missing Link or Lord Humongous. But I have clients..."
BW: "You don't have clients, you have cowards. The people who pay you to beat other people up are just too chicken(bleep) to do it themselves because they probably can't get the job done on their own. You say that hand is healing up?"
RG: "Yes, it is."
BW: "Well, I hope it's completely healed in the next seven days. Because next week, right here on 'Slam!', it's gonna be the 'Man with the Hands of Stone' vs. the 'Man with the 'Head of Stone'! That's right! Ron Garvin, you're facing the Missing Link! You'd better be more than ready to hook 'em up for that!"
Watts walked out of the interview area as fans in the arena cheered the news.
LN: "What are your thoughts on facing the Missing Link next week?"
RG: "Just like bounty hunting, wrestling's a business. And I'll look to take care of my wrestling business next week. Pleasure speaking with you, Larry.")
(Announcers discussed the interview with Garvin and how cool Garvin was when Watts made the match next week against Link.
Pedicino: "Nothing seems to phase that guy. He's so cool and casual that it's hard to believe he's a paid hitman."
Hyped coming up on the program: Both Roddy Piper and Wahoo McDaniel will be here. Announcers assume Wahoo will be with JJ; Pres. Watts will announce a decision on whether or not the $100,000 Bench Press Challenge will happen between 'Superstar' Graham and Ken Patera; an i'view w/ Arn Anderson; DDP vs. 'Bad Boy' Brunzell; Schultz & Rude vs. Mighty Texans; and more. Said Hugh Morrus vs. Grog was next!)
Hugh Morrus vs. Grog (w/ Father Dutch)
(Father Dutch and Grog came to the ring to pretty strong boos. Gregorian chants played as they made their way down the aisle. Father Dutch was in his priest's attire. Grog was in his and black leg-length tights with silver crosses on the outside of each leg, silver and black boots and silver and black mask.
Hugh came to the ring to a solid ovation.
The two men battled it out and the action see-sawed back-and-forth. Father Dutch assaulted Hugh when Hugh was out on the floor during the match.
At the end of the match, Grog was on the offensive. Grog had worked Hugh over with some punches and then whipped Hugh into the ropes and caught Hugh coming off with a tilt-a-whirl slam. Grog for the cover. 1...2... Hugh kicked out. Grog pulled Hugh up and threw Hugh into the corner. Grog charged in and blasted Hugh with a big clothesline. Hugh didn't go down but was hurting. Grog whipped Hugh into the opposite buckles and charged in on Hugh but Hugh charged out of the corner and dropped Grog with a big clothesline of his own. Grog went down and so did Hugh. Both men to their feet at the same time. Grog moved in on Hugh but Hugh immediately fired away with a series of punches that staggered Grog. Hugh whipped Grog into the ropes and caught Hugh coming off with a flying headbutt to the chest that dropped Grog again. At ringside, Father Dutch reached into his right pants pocket, pulled out his small chain and quickly wrapped it around his fist. Father Dutch started to climb up onthe apron when the crowd popped as DDP, in street clothes, charged down the aisle, reached up and pulled Faher Dutch down to the floor. DDP hammered Father Dutch with punches and then drove Father Dutch to the floor with a discus clothes line. In the ring, Hugh picked up Grog and bodyslammed him into position for a turnbuckle move. Hugh mounted the top buckle as DDP kept the hurting, less-than-holy Father Dutch at bay on the floor. Hugh nailed Grog with his moonsault finisher, covered Grog and hooked the leg. 1...2...3! Ref called for the bell and then raised Hugh's hand in victory.
Hugh left the ring and met DDP at the aisleway opening. Hugh shook DDP's hand and DDP then raised Hugh's hand victoriously in the air as the crowd cheered. DDP and Hugh made their way to the back together.
WINNER: Hugh - Pinfall - Moonsault - 8:26)
(Announcers discussed Hugh beating Grog and DDP once again keeping Father Dutch from interfering in a Grog match. Hyped coming up on the program: Both Roddy Piper and Wahoo McDaniel will be here. Announcers assume Wahoo will be with JJ; Pres. Watts will announce a decision on whether or not the $100,000 Bench Press Challenge will happen between 'Superstar' Graham and Ken Patera; DDP vs. 'Bad Boy' Brunzell; Schultz & Rude vs. Mighty Texans; and more. Said an i'view w/ Arn Anderson was coming up.)
(Announcers then sent it backstage.)
(Backstage: A car pulled up outside the Deltaplex. Harley Race got out of the driver's seat. JJ and new signee Wahoo got out of the back seat. Crowd booed when they saw Wahoo with JJ and Harley on the JumboTron.
Harley then walked to the trunk and opened it and got his bag out and slung it over his shoulder.
JJ: "Harley, get Wahoo's bag...and mine as well."
Race looked on as JJ and Wahoo walked off leaving Race to get the bags. Race was clearly not happy as he got the bags out of the trunk and closed it and walked on alone as the segment ended.)
(Announcers were stunned by what they just witnessed.
Pedicino: "Whoa! Did JJ Dillon just make Harley Race, an 8-time World Champion, carry his and Wahoo's bags into the building?"
Stack: "That's what happened, Joe. I'm shocked to say the least."
Said an i'view w/ Arn Anderson was next!)
(In-ring: Marshall i'viewed Arn Anderson.
Arn came to the ring to a strong ovation and slapped hands with fans along the way.
LM: "Arn, last week, The Firm scored a huge victory when Hall and Nash defeated Roddy Piper and Wahoo McDaniel to regain the UWL World Tag Team Titles thanks to Wahoo turning on his tag team partner and now former best friend Roddy Piper. How big a loss last week was that for the UWL?"
Arn: "Lee, losing different battles in a war have different effects. Some losses can have a very minimal impact on your side. But some can be absolutely devastating and can pave the wave to victory for the other side. The Firm's win last week was indeed big for them. But make no mistake, it did not open up a clear path to winning this war for them. I believe we've still got a long way to go in this conflict. Nothing's been settled yet. We had a great run in recent weeks against The Firm. They were on their heels. But they showed why they're such a tough foe last week. The UWL will win more battles along the way; The Firm will win more battles along the way. It will all come down to who can win the biggest battles in the end. They're the ones who will win this war. And I have great faith that the UWL is gonna be the side that wins the big battles when they have to."
LM: "What are your thoughts on Wahoo McDaniel turning on Roddy Piper last week and joining up with JJ Dillon Enterprises?"
Arn: "Shock. That's the only word I can use to describe it. No one saw this coming from Wahoo, especially Roddy. I've talked with Roddy a few times since the incident last week and can tell you that he is devastated by this. He can't believe it. Tonight, hopefully we'll get some answers from Wahoo about why he did what he did."
'LaGrange' by ZZ Top played over the p.a. system. Out came Dusty Rhodes to a mixed crowd reaction. Rhodes was wearing a Firm t-shirt, blue jeans and cowboy boots. He had a mic. Dusty got in the ring.
DR: "Arn Anderson! I came out here tonight to give these fans a little history lesson!"
Arn: "What history lesson is that?"
DR: "Why, a history lesson about you and me. (Big Dusty smile.) The wrestling fans out there who have just recently become fans of our sport probably don't know about our history together. Arn and 'Stardust' have wrestled each other several times in our careers. But in the past, we were on opposite sides of the fence. Arn was the one who received the catcalls when he came to the ring and I was the one who was cheered like the conquering hero. We've wrestled each other for championships; battled each other in grudge matches. We've shed a lot of each other's blood. We've made each other wear the crimson mask on quite a few occasions. And our battles were legendary."
Arn: "Is that it, Dusty? What that had to do with what I was talking about before you rudely interrupteed me, I have no idea. But, thank you for giving these fans a brief history of Arn and Dusty. I'd like to finish my interview with Lee Marshall. You can go now."
Dusty seemed saddened by Arn's words.
DR: "You want me to leave? One of your greatest rivals. I can take a hint."
Dusty lowered his head and his shoulders dropped as he turned and started to leave the ring as Arn turned back to interviewer Lee Marshall.
Arn: "I've forgotten where we were before..."
Dusty hooked a u-turn and came up and bashed Arn across the back with a series of forearm smashes. Arn dropped his mic. Dusty spun the stunned Arn around and blasted Arn with a DDT. Arn down. Dusty left the ring and went over to the timekeeper's table and picked up an empty steel chair, folded it up, and then climbed back in the ring with the chair. Dusty placed the chair on the mat. Arn was starting to recover but Dusty went over and put the boots to Arn. Dusty then grabbed Arn and nailed him with the 'Stardust Driver' (aka, inverted piledriver) onto the chair. Arn laid out. Dusty then picked up the chair and started beating the downed Arn with the chair. Dusty got in a few shots before the crowd popped as the Nasty Boys, with chairs of their own, charged to the ring. Dusty saw the duo, dropped his chair and bailed from the ring just as the Nastys got in the ring. Nastys were ready for Dusty in the ring with their chairs raised for battle. As Rhodes stood at ringside looking on, Hall and Nash came down to back up Dusty. Words were exchanged between the Nastys and the trio on the floor.
Pres. Watts, with eight security team members, came down the aisle as the crowd cheered some more. Watts had words with The Firm members and ordered them to vacate the ringside area and go backstage. Nash had words with Watts. Hall then shoved Watts with one hand. Watts grabbed Hall as the fans really got into it and the two tussled like a couple of hockey players jockeying for position in a fight. Ref helped Arn to his feet in the ring as the Nastys went to the floor to help Watts. Nastys joined Watts in getting into a brief scuffle with Hall, Nash and Rhodes before security was finally able to separate the brawling parties. Watts yelled for Hall, Nash and Rhodes to leave the area immediately. Several security team members were finally able to get some order and, after a brief exchange of words, security was able to cool things down enough to get Hall, Nash and Rhodes hustled to the back. Arn was standing in the corner of the ring holding the back of his neck as the ref kept a check on him. Watts and Nastys got in the ring to check on Arn once the coast was cleared of The Firm rabble.)
(Announcers discussed Dusty attacking Arn and the Nastys coming to Arn's aid and Hall and Nash coming out and backing up Dusty and Watts coming out with security to break things up and he and the Nastys getting into a scuffle with Hall, Nash and Rhodes before things were brought under control. Hyped coming up on the program: Both Roddy Piper and Wahoo McDaniel will be here. Announcers assume Wahoo will be with JJ; Pres. Watts will announce a decision on whether or not the $100,000 Bench Press Challenge will happen between 'Superstar' Graham and Ken Patera; DDP vs. 'Bad Boy' Brunzell; and more. Said Schultz and Rude vs. Mighty Texans was coming up!)
(Backstage: Nelson i'viewed 'Bad Boy' Brunzell.
Brunzell was wearing his derby hat, black t-shirt with 'Bad Boy' written across the front, black tights with 'Bad Boy' written on the rear and his black and white ring boots with 'BBB' on the outside of each boot.
Nelson asked about tonight's match with DDP.
BBB: "I woke up this morning and the bad boy was really stirring inside of me. I might just be more bad boy than I've ever been in a match since my transformation. Dallas Page better look out. Because I might look to take a few shortcuts like a true bad boy to win this match tonight."
LN: "You're admitting you might cheat, then?"
BBB: "All bad boys cheat! Jeez, Nelson! You sound like you've never seen a pro wrestling match before in your life! Cheating is a much hallowed bad boy wrestling tradition! It ranks up there with football on Thanksgiving! If you claim to be a bad boy and you're not cheatin' then you're not tryin'! The foreign object shot! Holding the tights! Throwing a powdery substance in your opponent's eyes! Using the ropes for leverage! Hitting a guy with a steel chair! Those are all types of mandatory of bad boy behavior! Bad boys look to be winners! It's as simple as that!"
LN: "I notice you're still wearing the bad boy black derby hat. Have you considered adding a cape and handlebar mustache to your ring attire to really give yourself that Snidely Whiplash look? Maybe you could tie a woman to the train tracks as well?"
Brunzell had a hurt look on his face as he looked at Nelson.
BBB: "You know, I come out here on this program week after week and showcase my bad boy image. People, including you, are supposed to take me seriously as a bad boy. But, many fans laugh at me. They don't think I'm a legit bad boy. But I am! I am! I am! I am! Look! Everyone needs to respond to me like I am a bad boy! I need them to boo and be scared when they hear my entrance song 'Bad Boys' by the Miami Sound Machine. They have to start acting in a way that's appropriate for my new bad boy ways! It's not nice when they don't react the way they should! Fudge!"
LN: "I'm saying this to be constructive. You have got to change your entrance music. I laugh every time I hear it. Hahahahaha!"
BBB (almost in tears): "Your job is to interview me and get over to the fans that I'm a real bad boy threat! Yet, here you are..."
LN: "Hahahaha! Stop it! You're... Hahahahaha! You're killing me! Hahahaha!"
BBB (really upset): "OK! I'm leaving!"
Brunzell stormed out of the interview area and Nelson was still laughing hard.
LN: "Steve and Joe... Hahahaha! Back to you! Hahahaha!"
Nelson then doubled over with laughter as the segment ended.)
(Video aired of Schultz and Rude beating the Mulkeys last week and then spike piledriving both brothers after the match until Lord Humongous & Missing Link came to their aid and Schultz and Rude scrambled from the ring.)
David Schultz & Rick Rude (w/ DiBiase) vs. Mighty Texans
(MT's (Sam Houston and Lash LaRue) came to the ring first to a modest ovation. Lash had his trusty whip with him. Once in the ring, Lash cracked the whip on the mat a couple of times.
Schultz and Rude came to the ring with Director DiBiase to a mixed crowd reax.
Unlike the Mulkeys, the MT's gave Rude and Schultz a battle. DiBiase never interfered. But in the end, it was too much Schultz and Rude and Rude finished off Sam Houston with the Rude Awakening to score the 1...2...3 for his team. Lash climbed in the ring to try and break up the pin but Schultz intercepted Lash and knocked him senseless with a forearm shiver to the side of the head.
WINNER: Rude & Schultz - Pinfall - Rude pinned Houston with the Rude Awakening - 5:02)
(After the match, Rude signaled for Schultz to pick Houston up. Rude climbed up on the middle buckle as Schultz hoisted Sam up in the air in the piledriver position and Rude came off the middle buckle and they nailed Sam with a spike piledriver. Sam down and convulsing on the mat. Lash had just gotten to his feet and Rude and Schultz hammered away on Lash and drove him back down to the canvas. They put the boots to him. Rude again signaled for another spike piledriver. Schultz was able to hoist Lash up in the piledriver position as Rude mounted the middle buckle. Just as they were about spike piledrive Lash, Lord Humongous and Missing Link, with Dark Journey in tow, hit the ring just like last week as fans cheered. Their manager Dark Journey stood at ringside. Schultz dropped Lash and he and Rude bailed to the floor just as Lord and Link hit the ring. Lord and Link were in the ring and ready to rumble as they looked down at Schultz and Rude on the floor. Schultz jumped up on the apron and was ready to fight with the bizarre duo. Journey got up on the apron on another side of the ring and gestured for Lord and Link not to go after Schultz. Rude said something to Schultz and Schultz dropped back down to the floor.
Schultz, Rude and DiBiase standing at ringside as the two teams looked at each other.
Mic picked up Schultz.
DS: "Your manager's a smart woman! You guys don't want a piece of The Firm! Believe me!"
Rude, Schultz and DiBiase turned and started to head back up the aisle. Journey and the ref checked on Lash and Sam in the ring.)
(Announcers discussed Rude & Schultz attacking the defeated Mighty Texans after the match and Lord and Link coming to the aid of Schultz's and Rude's beleagured opponents once again.
Pedicino: "Steve, it seems there's a lot of excessive piledriving going on tonight."
Stack: "Must be a full moon out."
Pedicino: "Think you might be right."
Hyped coming up on the program: Both Roddy Piper and Wahoo McDaniel will be here. Announcers assume Wahoo will be with JJ; Pres. Watts will announce a decision on whether or not the $100,000 Bench Press Challenge will happen between 'Superstar' Graham and Ken Patera; DDP vs. 'Bad Boy' Brunzell; and more. Said Pres. Watts will announce a decision on whether or not the $100,000 Bench Press Challenge will happen between 'Superstar' Graham and Ken Patera next!)
(In-ring: 'Born in the USA' played over the p.a. system and Pres. Watts came out and made his way to the ring. Watts got a decent ovation. He had a mic.
Watts got in the ring and walked around briefly before speaking.
BW: "What a night so far, huh? I have a few important announcements to make.
"Last week on this program, 'Superstar' Graham challenged Ken Patera to a Bench Press Challenge. Patera thought they should make the challenge more interesting by each wrestler putting $50 grand of his own money on the line. So, next week, we're gonna have the $100,000 Dollar Bench Press Challenge right here on 'Slam!'!"
BW: "Next, I want to remind you of a match I made earlier this evening for next week's program as well. It's gonna be the 'Man with the Hands of Stone' vs. the 'Man with the Head of Stone', Ron Garvin vs. The Missing Link!
"Next week's 'Slam!' is shaping up to be a huge show. It just keeps getting bigger. After what we witnessed earlier this evening involving the Nasty Boys and Hall and Nash here in the Deltaplex, we're gonna have those two teams square off in a match next Tuesday night also!
"That is two huge matches for next week's program. And I've got two more matches to announce. We're gonna have, one-on-one, Director of The Firm Ted DiBiase vs. Lex Luger!
"The other match I have to announce comes from the UWL Women's Division. Since Madusa has scored a couple of impressive victories recently over top-caliber opponents, she will be wrestling in a #1 Contender's Match. And her opponent is gonna be the top contender from Japan. It's a woman Madusa knows very well. It's gonna be Madusa vs. Bull Nakano! And the winner will face Tina Ferrari for the UWL Women's World Title at 'Spring Mayhem'!
"What a night it's gonna be next Tuesday! Let's get ready to hook 'em up!")
(Backstage: Nelson i'viewed DDP.
Nelson asked about DDP's match tonight with Brunzell and his on-going issues with Father Dutch.
DDP: " Larry, I almost feel sorry for Brunzell. I know what it's like to be a real bady boy. Because I've been one inside and outside the ring during my life. I'm now trying to be a better boy. But, even I have to admit that once you've been a bad boy you never totally get it out of your system. 'Bad Boy' Brunzell seems like he needs to read an instruction manual on how to become a genuine bad boy. The guy is completely lost on what it takes to make a bad boy. He thinks just acting out in certain ways will make him one. But that's not the case. Being a real deal on the bad boy front must come naturally from within. That's why I said that even when one makes changes in their lives, like myself, I'll never totally shake off the bad boy because it's something ingrained in me. Other guys have the true bad boy aura here in the UWL. But one of them is not the wrongly named 'Bad Boy' Brunzell. Brunzell just comes across like, well, a dork for lack of better term. But, he'd better watch out in our match tonight. If Brunzell tries to chesat to win, he'd better keep in mind that my inner bad boy might just come bubbling up to the surface and then the faux bad boy will know how a real bad boy acts in certain situations.
"One guy who's a real bad boy here in the UWL is Father Dutch. I don't use the word 'bad' in a good way, either. Father Dutch is 'bad' in an evil way. He's like a cult leader who wields total control over Grog. Grog is simply his automoton. If Father Dutch told Grog to jump off a cliff, I don't think we'd see Grog ever again. Father Dutch, I want you to know that I'm watching you. Every time you try to interfere or cheat in a match, I'll be there to make sure it doesn't happen. You're not getting away with your unholy ways as long as the Diamond is around! So saith the Book of the Diamond Cutter!"
DDP made the Diamond sign with his hands then did the 'Bang!' gesture before walking out of the interview area.)
DDP vs. 'Bad Boy' Brunzell
('Bad Boys' by the Miami Sound Machine blared over the p.a. system and out came 'Bad Boy' Brunzell to a decent amount of boos. Announcers were laughing at Brunzell's choice of entrance music again.
As Brunzell got in the ring, the crowd started chanting 'Jim! Jim!' at Brunzell. brunzell took the r.a. mic from Lee Marshall. Brunzell soaked in the 'Jim!' chants and then placed his hands over his ears and dropped to his knees. Brunzell then spoke.
BBB (voice cracking): "Stop it! Please! I'm begging you! I'm a bad boy now! Really!"
Brunzell tossed down the mic, placed his hands back over his ears and then dropped his derby hat-laden head on the mat as the 'Jim!' chants continued.
Music-only version of 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' played over the p.a. system and out came DDP to a good ovation. DDP got in the ring and made the Diamond sign and did the 'Bang!' gesture.
DDP took the majority of the match but Brunzell got some good offense in.
At the end of the match, Brunzell was on the offensive. Brunzell whipped DDP into the ropes and looked to catch DDP coming off with a dropkick but DDP grabbed the top rope and held on as Brunzell crashed to the mat. As Brunzell got to his feet, DDP moved in and started nailing Brunzell with a series of jabs that staggered Brunzell. DDP then went to nail Brunzell with his discus clothesline but Brunzell fell out of the way and DDP caught the ref full-force with with the blow. Ref crashed to the mat and was hurting. DDP checked on the ref as Brunzell got to his feet behind DDP. Brunzell nailed DDP with a double sledge to DDP's back. DDP turned around and Brunzell nailed DDP with some punches and then went to whip DDP into the ropes but DDP reversed and caught Brunzell coming off with a kick to the gut followed by a Diamond Cutter. Crowd popped. Brunzell down and almost out. DDP went over and checked on the ref again. With DDP's back turned in the ring, Father Dutch and Grog came down to the ring. Father Dutch slid into the ring and had his 18-inch solid wood crucifix. Dutch came up behind DDP and clocked DDP across the back of the head with the crucifix. DDP went down in a heap and was holding the back of his head. Father Dutch and Grog then fled the scene. Brunzell slowly made it to his feet and went over and grabbed DDP and pulled him up by the hair. Brunzell then nailed Page with his slingshot suplex finisher. Brunzell grabbed the ref and dragged him over. Brunzell covered DDP. Slow count by the ref. 1.....2.....2-1/2..... DDP kicked out. Crowd cheered. Brunzell then re-covered Page and this time hooked the leg. 1.....2.....3! Groggy ref called for the bell. Ref slowly made it to his feet and raised Brunzell's hand in victory. Brunzell was ecstatic.
Brunzell took the r.a. mic from Marshall.
BBB: "Who's your bad boy daddy now?! Me! That's who!"
Brunzell tossed the mic and thrust his arms into the air victoriously as many fans booed. Many fans also started chanting 'Jim!' once again. Brunzell left the ring, dropped to the floor, covered his ears and ran back up the aisle to the back.
WINNER: Brunzell - Pinfall - Slingshot Suplex - 9:16)
(Announcers discussed Brunzell defeating DDP thanks to outside interference from Father Dutch.)

(Announcers said JJ and Wahoo were next!)
(In-ring: JJ, Wahoo and Harley came to the ring to loud boos.
JJ was in a suit, Harley was in casual street attire and Wahoo was wearing a dark blue blazer with a white button-up dress shirt opened at the top button, black slacks and dress shoes. JJ and Wahoo had mics. The trio got in the ring and boos continued unabated.
The three soaked in the boos for a moment before JJ started speaking.
JJ: "I didn't know if this day would come. I knew I was running out of time to land the wrestler I really wanted to be the next member of JJ Dillon Enterprises since Tully Blanchard left. A few days before last week's 'Slam!', I called Wahoo McDaniel. When Wahoo answered and I told him it was me he hung up. A couple of days later, I called Wahoo again. He was about to hang up once more when I told him to just hear me out. Wahoo agreed. For the next 90 minutes we talked. It was a very amicable conversation. But Wahoo gave me no clear answer as to whether or not he was interested in signing with me.
"You may remember at the start of the program last week, I was out here talking. Wahoo came down to ringside and was mad enough to try and tear my head off. I thought that was it. I wasn't going to land Wahoo. Also, you may remember that while Harley Race was out here wrestling, I got a phone call at ringside. It was from Wahoo. He was out in his rental car in the parking lot and he wanted to talk privately with me. I immediately left ringisde while Harley's match was still going on. To avoid being noticed by the security cameras out in the parking lot, I was able to get my hands on a UWL coverall that members of the UWL technical crew wear. I put on the coverall and was able to scrounge up a baseball cap. I took off my glasses and pulled the cap down over my eyes. I walked out without being detected. When I got outside, Wahoo flashed his headlights so I knew right where he was parked. I got into the passenger's seat and, under cover of darkness, we talked. It was during that meeting that Wahoo told me he wanted to make the move and join JJ Dillon Enterprises. I was overjoyed with his decision. We laid out a plan for what to do. A message had to be sent loud and clear to Roddy Piper that Wahoo was no longer his friend and he was coming over to our side. We came up with Wahoo asking for the match to be a no disqualification match for the tag team titles against Hall and Nash. Once Watts agreed to the stipulation, we knew our plan was all-systems go. I told Wahoo I would be waitin for him in my rental car out back once he had turned on his best friend. We congratulated one another as we drove out of the parking lot last Tuesday night.
"Wahoo knew that it meant the end of his run as a World Tag Team Champion with Piper. He didn't care. That's because Wahoo wants the biggest prize in our sport again. I don't need to tell you what that is. And now, I give you the newest member of JJ Dillon Enterprises...Chief Wahoo McDaniel!"
Crowd went nuclear as Wahoo stepped forward to talk. Wahoo soaked in the boos a little before spekaing.
WM: "Last week, until the end of 'Slam!', you fans cheered me. I was one of your heroes. Now, you boo me and hate me."
Wahoo chuckled as the fans continued to boo.
WM: "Frankly, fans, I don't give a damn.
"I had been good friends with Roddy Piper for years. We were like brothers. There's nothing he wouldn't have done for me and nothing I wouldn't have done for him. Even after the phone conversation I had with JJ, I still wasn't sold on the idea of joining JJ Dillon Enterprises. But the call did make me think. It made me think about what I wanted to do at this stage of my career. I know I want another run as the UWL World Champion. There was no way Roddy Piper was going to give me a title shot, ever. What JJ said made sense. Roddy Piper's been holding me back. I've been in his shadow ever since he returned. And I stand in the shadow of no man. Roddy Piper wanted it that way. He thinks that I'm a major threat to his championship run and that's why he kept me so close. Piper's right that I am a major threat to end his reign. Now, he can't avoid me.
"At the start of last week's show, when JJ was standing out here talking, I did come down to the ring with the intention of beating up JJ. But, Roddy came down and held me at bay and kept me from going after JJ. That was the last straw. When we got backstage, I went off on my own and thought some more about the matter. Roddy was keeping me so close that I was starting to suffocate. I knew at that moment I needed to make a change. I was friends with Roddy. But friendship doesn't pay the bills and it doesn't win the World Title. Friends come and go in a man's life. But, being the World Champion cements your legacy in this sport forever. People always remember the champions. They don't remember who came in second. Finishing second just means that you're the first loser. Roddy Piper was my own personal oppressor. I've broken away from him. I've stepped out of the big shadow he cast over me all this time. I've made the right decision to align myself with JJ Dillon Enterprises. As JJ has pointed out before, he has been the manager of multiple champions here in the UWL; including a 2-time World Champion. I will be the man who gives JJ three World Championship reigns.
"And the money JJ offered? When all is said and done, I will make more being managed by JJ Dillon than at any other time in my career. While the money's important, what I really want is that UWL World Title. I want to be the man who beats Piper and slams the door shut on his time as the World Champion. It's Wahoo's time to shine in the UWL now."
Bagpipe music filled the arena and the crowd exploded as Roddy Piper came out on the entrance stage. Piper power-walked to the ring and was wearing his t-shirt, kilt and ring boots and had the belt around his waist. Piper had a mic. Piper stepped into the ring and was all business.
Piper walked around for a moment before speaking.
RP: "Wahoo, I was listening to you backstage and coudln't believe the things you were saying. You say I would never give you a World Title shot? You never asked for one. That's all you had to do, Wahoo. Come to me and say you wanted a World Title shot and I would have given it to you no questions asked based solely on your track record of success in this business. You want to throw away our friendship because you believe that you had to turn to this piece of trash standing next to you to get a title match with me? I am absolute..."
WM: "Shut up, Roddy! What you just said was complete and utter nonsense! I should never have had to ask you for a World Title match! You should have offered me the chance since you're the World Champion! And watch what you say about my manager!"
Race leaned into JJ's mic.
HR: "Roddy Piper. Why don't you..."
JJ pulled the mic away from Harley.
JJ: "Not now, Harley. It's not your time to talk."
Race shot a side glance at JJ.
RP: "You let JJ Dillon, of all people, fill your head with this b.s., Wahoo. You could have asked me for a World Tite shot at any time. Hell, you could have asked me five minutes after I won the title last December and you would have been the first man I defended the belt against and I would have done it gladly. I understand the difference between business and friendship; especially in pro wrestling. We walk a fine line in this sport all the time. Everyone is looking out for themselves to one degree or another. I'm just...I...I...it's like none of this is really happening. I'm hoping the alarm will go off and I'll wake up and find that this has all just been some sort of nightmare."
WM: "This is reality, Roddy! You need to wake up alright! Wake up and face the fact that I am now managed by JJ Dillon and that I'm coming for you! Roddy Piper! I challenge you to a World Title match at 'Spring Mayhem'!"
Crowd buzzing. Roddy looked at Wahoo for a bit before responding.
RP:"Wahoo, if you walked away from JJ Dillon right now I would say 'yes' in a heartbeat."
WM: "LIAR! You are nothing but a damned liar! If I walk away from JJ Dillon, then I know for a fact you won't give me a title shot in a million years! You'd conveniently forget all about it! You just want me back on your side so you can continue to hold me down!"
RP: "That is absolutely untrue. Would you listen to reason."
WM: "Oh! I've listened to reason! And reason's name is JJ Dillon! And let me give you another little nugget of reason!"
Wahoo slapped Piper's mic out of his hand. Piper was stunned and looked down. Wahoo dropped his mic and blasted Piper with a series of stiff chest chops, whipped Piper into the ropes and caught Piper coming off with his big chop finisher. Piper crashed to the mat and was holding his chest. Wahoo added insult to injury and stomped on the downed Piper. Wahoo then grabbed his mic up off the mat and bent over the downed Piper.
WM: "Piper! I'm coming for you and that belt! I want the World Title match at 'Spring Mayhem'!"
Wahoo threw the mic down on Piper and then he, JJ and Harley left the ring to the loudest boos of the night. Shot of Piper down in the ring and still holding his chest and grimacing in pain as the program went off the air.)
Dark Match (UWL World Title Match - TV Title not on the line)
Roddy Piper (WC) vs. Rip Oliver (TVC)
(Coming off the ending segment of the show, a ref, UWL security and an EMT came out and checked on Piper. Piper made it to his feet and, after a couple of minutes, Piper said he could go. World Title match went forward.
WINNER: Piper - Submission - Ankle Lock - 10:24)
