Re: Universal Wrestling League
UWL 'SLAM!' WRESTLING - EP. 111 - SAN DIEGO, CA - JENNY CRAIG PAVILION - 3-5-13 (Live)
(Video aired to open the program of UWL WC Roddy Piper and Wahoo McDaniel beating Director Ted DiBiase and Dusty Rhodes of The Firm on last week's 'Slam!'.)
(In-ring: 'Born in the USA' played over the p.a. system and Pres. Watts came to the ring with mic in hand. He got a decent ovation coming to the ring. Watts got in the ring.
BW: "I have a major announcement to make to start tonight's show. Last week, UWL World Champion Roddy Piper and Chief Wahoo McDaniel beat Director Ted DiBiase and Dusty Rhodes of The Firm in a tag team match. As the President of the UWL I have to admit I'm a little biased. I'm supposed to be impartial and just run the UWL and do what I think is best for the company. But man, I loved seeing Piper and Wahoo beat those two."
BW: "Like you fans, I don't want to see The Firm ever get control of this company. The UWL has scored two big wins over The Firm the last two weeks. The UWL is riding a tidal wave of momentum at this time. In a war, you've got to seize on that momentum. The Firm is on the defensive right now. It's great to see. The victory by Piper and Wahoo last week was so huge that I've decided to make another main event match between the UWL and The Firm tonight!"
BW: "So, right here in San Diego, we're gonna have another tag team match! It's gonna be Roddy Piper and Wahoo McDaniel vs. Hall and Nash! And the UWL World Tag Team Titles will be on the line!"
Loud roar from the fans.
BW: "Let's get ready to hook 'em up!"
'Born in the USA' started playing and Watts started to leave the ring when Hall and Nash, in street clothes, came power walking to the ring. Each had a mic and each had their title slung over their shoulder. Watts stayed in the ring. The pair got a mixed crowd reax as they stepped in the ring.
Nash: "Watts! You couldn't have given us better news! We've got no problem putting these belts on the line tonight against Roddy Piper and Wahoo McDaniel! We live for times like this! Your UWL boys have scored a couple of major victories the last two weeks! But that streak isn't going to last! We have every intention of putting Piper and Wahoo, and by extension the entire UWL, in their place tonight! This is a war between The Firm and the UWL! The UWL may have the momentumne right now! But Scott Hall and Kevin Nash are gonna rip that momentum away from the UWL and re-claim it for The Firm in the next 90-minutes!"
Hall: "Hey yo! President Bubba Watts! In all the glee that the UWL and these fans have about this match-up tonight, they seem to be overlooking one thing! Can Wahoo McDaniel trust Roddy Piper, man?! The people love Roddy Piper! What they don't realize is that he is a man with a monster ego! There's no way in hell that Piper wants to share any spotlight with Wahoo in the championship arena! That's evident by the fact that Roddy's never offered Wahoo even one World Title shot to date! If they're such good friends and since we all know that Wahoo is one of the top wrestlers there is, why doesn't Piper just offer him a title match?! The wildcard in this match is Piper, pure and simple! He doesn't want Wahoo at the level he's at right now! He wouldn't have held Wahoo and let Dusty sucker punch the Chief last week if he had Wahoo's best interests at heart! Nooooooooo! I don't think Roddy Piper could stand being a World Tag Team Champion with his best friend! It would mean having to look at Wahoo as a serious contender for the World Heavyweight Championship! And Piper can't have that, man!"
BW: "First of all, Piper explained last week that he restrained Wahoo from going after Dusty Rhodes because that was not the time to fight. The time to fight was in the match later that evening. Also, how do you explain Piper and Wahoo working as a strong team in that match with DiBiase and Rhodes?"
Hall: "Oh! Last week was a big victory for them! I'm not gonna deny that! But there were no titles on the line, man! A match is a totally different animal when a championship is at stake! Just keep your eye on Roddy Piper! Wahoo, you really don't need that guy as a friend! Piper's bad news!"
Nash: "President Watts! You need to enjoy your time as President now! Because when The Firm seizes control of the UWL you won't be the company President anymore! Piper and Wahoo just need to get ready and be out here at match time because we're gonna tear them a new one and right the ship!"
Bagpipe music filled the arena and the fans popped when Piper and Wahoo, in street clothes and carrying mics came out on the entrance stage. Piper was carrying the title cradled in his arm.
RP: "I'm really getting tired of hearing this. I'm getting tired of having my loyalty to my best friend Wahoo McDaniel questioned. It's not only JJ Dillon doing it now, but it's also you guys in The Firm. Did DiBiase put you guys up to this? Did he give the order to start a disinformation campaign about me? Hmmmm... I would never screw this guy over in a million years..."
Hall: "You just said a 'million years', Roddy! That right there is code for a major screw-over is coming! Good luck, Wahoo, with him as your partner! He's about as trustworthy as a tag team partner as Bernie Madoff was with other peoples' money!"
WM: "I'm gonna put this to rest right now. Roddy and me and have been good firends for years now. Our bond is so strong that it's unbreakable. That's all there is to it. I've got his back and he's got mine. And we're gonna work together as a team tonight just like we did last week when we beat your boss Ted DiBiase and Dusty Rhodes. We've got The Firm reeling right now and...(sniffs the air)...I smell a World Tag Team Title change tonight!"
RP: "Actions speak much louder than words! And everyone will see that me and Wahoo are strong friends and a strong tag team! And they'll see, because of our actions and team work, we're gonna become the new World Tag Team Champions!"
Nash: "OK! Heard you boys loud and clear! Actions do speak louder than words! The only thing you've done so far is spit out a bunch of verbiage! And in our match later tonight, our actions are gonna speak real loud for us and Squanto McDaniel and Scotty the Scot Scotsman are gonna leave this ring as the losers! And it's going to be a microcosm of what's going to happen to the UWL as a whole when The Firm wins this war!"
WM: "What did you call me just a minute ago?"
Nash: "What? Hmmmm.... What did I call you?"
Hall: "He called you Squanto...Squanto McDaniel, man!"
WM: "That's what I thought..."
Wahoo tossed the mic and charged to the ring. Piper was caught off guard by Wahoo taking off like he did. Wahoo hit the ring and Hall and Nash jumped him immediately. Piper charged in and the battle was joined as Pres. Watts had left the ring and was now out on the floor.
The two teams started brawling wildly in the ring as the fans were roaring.
BW: "We need security out here right now!"
The two teams were slugging it out in the ring as 10 UWL security members hit the ring and, after a brief period of struggle, were able to separate the warring factions. The two sides were in the ring and separated by a wall of security.Crowd buzzing. Wahoo broke free of security and charged over and jumped on Nash and started wailing away on him as the fans cheered. Hall joined Nash against Wahoo. Piper had looked to charge over and jump in the fray but was held at bay by security. Hall and Nash were able to get some licks in on Wahoo before security pulled them off of the Chief. Security was able to get Hall and Nash out of the ring. The pair scuffled with some security members briefly on the floor before being escorted to the back. Piper was then removed from the ring and then Wahoo soon followed suit. Piper stopped and waited for Wahoo in the aisleway but security hustled Wahoo past Piper up the aisle and to the back. Piper then followed suit.)
(Announcers Steve Stack and Joe Pedicino discussed Watts making the UWL WTT Title Match: Hall & Nash (WTTC) vs. Piper (C) & Wahoo and the situation that developed between the teams after the announcement.
Stack: "Joe, you have to wonder what's going on concerning Roddy Piper. It does seem like both JJ Dillon and Ted DiBiase have launched some sort of smear campaign against him."
Pedicino: "Any fan who has followed this sport for a while knows that in his career Roddy Piper has been one of the biggest villains in this sport in the past. Are JJ and Ted onto something here? Is Roddy preparing to shock us by going rogue? We can only wait and see."

'Bad Boy' Brunzell vs. Sam Houston
(Brunzell came to the ring to the song 'Bad Boys' by the Miami Sound Machine. He was in his derby hat, black t-shirt with 'Bad Boy' written on the front and...shoes and socks. Announcers took notice of the fact that Brunzell was not wearing his usual wrestling boots.
When Brunzell got in the ring, he was greeted with chants of 'Jim!' by the crowd. Brunzell walked around the ring covering his ears. Brunzell then took the r.a. mic from r.a. Lee Marshall.
BBB: "My name is not Jim! It's 'Bad Boy'! 'Bad Boy'! 'Bad Boy'! Bad Boy!' Jim is dead, gosh darnit!"
Sam took it to Brunzell early in the short match but Brunzell fought back and took control.
At the end of the match, Brunzell was on the offensive. He nailed Sam with his inverted headlock neckbreaker and then snapped Sam up and nailed him with his slingshot suplex finisher. Brunzell covered Sam. 1...2...3! Ref called for the bell.
WINNER: Brunzell - Pinfall - Slingshot Suplex - 2:58)
(After the match: Marshall i'viewed Brunzell.
LM: "'Bad Boy', I can't help but notice that you're not wearing your usual wrestling boots. What gives?"
BBB: "Last week, you questioned whether or not penny loafers were real bad boy footwear. So, I decided to give the people a little treat and wrestle wearing my penny loafers. I just showed you in my match that they are legit bad boy footwear. I might wrestle in a sweater vest or tweed jacket in a future match. And the people will be thrilled to see me in action in those bad boy duds.
"With this win, my bad boy stock is rising. I'm feeling more bad boy with each passing day. When I shower in the morning all the grit and grime washes off, but the bad boy stays all over my body. I ooze bad boy stuff. You know you're a genuine bad boy when the bad boy stays on your person even in warm water. The bad boy will never come off me now, even with an intense spa treatment. When I took on my bad boy persona it's like I took off the old Jim skin and put on a new skin. A skin that's impenetrable to being a gooey two-shoes."
LM: "I think that's 'goody' two-shoes."
BBB: "Goody. Gooey. It's all relative. People get out of my way now when I walk down the street because they can smell the bad boy dripping out of my pores. It's a good drip. It's a drip of affirmation. I am a bad boy. And don't you people ever forget it!"
Fans started chanting 'Jim' again.
BBB: "I also want to say..."
'Jim' chants picked up.
BBB: "Cut it out! I mean it! Bad things happen to people who insult bad boys! As I was saying..."
'Jim' chants continued. Jim covered his ears and walked around the ring.
BBB: "Stop it! Stop! Stop! Please! 'Jim' no longer exists! As I..."
Chants continued and picked up even more.
BBB: "That's it! The 'Bad Boy' has had enough! I'm leaving now and you people will no longer enjoy my bad boy coolness and wit!"
Brunzell walked out on the apron and the 'Jim!' chants continued. Brunzell then dropped off the apron and covered his ears and ran back up the aisle to the back.)
(Announcers discussed 'Bad Boy' Brunzell's win over Sam and the post-match interview.
Pedicino: "It's obvious that Brunzell has got work to do in cultivating his bad boy image."

(Video aired for the 'Extenze Presents: Spring Mayhem' PPV - Sunday - April 14 - Rio Rancho, NM - Santa Ana Star Center - 8pm E/5pm P - Tickets on sale NOW!)
(Announcers intro'd video from last week of 'Superstar' Graham and Grand Wizard accusing Rick Steiner of cheating to win the match between Graham and Steiner at 'Winter Warfare'.
Steiner started running around the ring during the interview and barking and the crowd barked back. While Steiner was doing that, many in the crowd started booing as 'Superstar' Graham and his mgr. Grand Wizard made their way to the ring. Graham had a mic. Graham had his "I AM A PROFESSIONAL!' t-shirt on.
RS: "You guys here for something to eat?! Sorry, I'm all out of Milk Bones! Woof! Woof! Woo..."
Graham: "Steiner! I'm not out here to share in a bowl of kibble with you. I'm not out here to gnosh on some damned Milk Bones, either. I'm out here to remind you that the President's Championship is a professional title, daddy. And since I am the prototype of what a PRO-FESS-ION-AL wrestler should be, I think I deserve a shot at that belt."
RS: "You?! 'Superstar', let me let you in on a little bit of a secret. It may have slipped your mind. But nine days ago at 'Winter Warfare' I beat you, remember? I beat the prototype PRO-FESS-ION-AL wrestler in a pro-style wrestling match. What makes you deserving of a title match with me?"
Graham: "Let me let you in on a little bit of a secret, Steiner. You cheated to beat me at 'Winter Warfare'!"
RS: "What?! I did not!"
Graham: "Yes you did! Why are you denying it?! You're a cheater, Rick! I've got the proof!"
RS: "What did I do?!"
Graham: "You know what you did!"
GW: "We have the proof! Would you like to see it?!"
RS: "Let's see this 'proof'!"
GW: "The proof is right here."
Wizard reached into the side pocket of his tie-dyed tuxedo and pulled out a taped up foreign object and dangled it in Steiner's face.
RS: "I've never seen that thing in my life! Lee, I didn't use a foreign object in our match!"
Marshall nodded that he agreed with Steiner.
GW: "Throughout the match at 'Winter Warfare' you used this weapon on 'Superstar' Graham! I spotted your use of it but didn't say anything about it! But now, as a good and upright citizen of the United States of America, the people need to know what a devious cad you really are! When the fans cheer for you they are cheering for a cheater! Being Rick Steiner, you absent mindedly left this backstage at the WVU Coliseum in Morgantown where the show was held!"
Steiner then grabbed the sides of his head and started walking around the ring. Steiner seemed confused by this sudden turn of events.
GW: "There's no way you could have beaten 'Superstar' Graham in a pro-style match without taking a shortcut! Shame! Shame! Shame on you, Rick Steiner!"
GW: "Here's the deal my boy! We're willing to let your cheating in the match at 'Winter Warfare' slide on one condition! You give the 'Superstar' a President's Championship match as a sign of contrition for your vile deeds and all will be forgotten! If you won't agree to our terms, well... Think about it! Because while we're a couple of swell guys...one thing we aren't is patient guys! I know you'll make the right decision, Rick."
Steiner was speechless. Graham pointed at the title.
Graham: "That belt's gonna look real good around the most perfect waist in the universe."
Graham and Wizard then left the ring to loud boos as a stunned Steiner looked on from the ring and was in a state of disbelief.)
(In-ring: Ring Ann. Lee Marshall i'viewed President's Champion Rick Steiner.
Steiner came to the ring in his street clothes and had the title slung over his shoulder. Steiner barked walking to the ring and slapping hands with fans along the way. Steiner then ran around ringside barking some more as the crowd barked back. Steiner then got in the ring.
RS: "Woof! Woof! Woof!"
Crowd barked back.
Marshall asked Steiner about the bizarre series of events where 'Superstar' Graham and his mgr. Grand Wizard accused Steiner of cheating to win the Graham-Steiner match at 'Winter Warfare' and Wizard brandishing the 'foreign object' Steiner supposedly used to cheapshot Graham throughout the match.
RS: "I swear that I did not cheat to win our match at 'Winter Warfare'! I've never even see that foreign object that the Grand Wizard accused me of hitting Graham with during the match! I've watched the match over and over during the last week and you can clearly tell that I never cheated in the match! This whole thing is mind-boggling! And my mind boggles pretty easily sometimes!"
Out on the entrance stage walked 'Superstar' Graham and mgr. Grand Wizard. Graham was wearing his 'I AM A PROFESSIONAL!' t-shirt and Wizard was in his usual tie-dyed tuxedo attire and accoutrements. Both had mics.
GW: "Rick Steiner! You may get confused very easily! (Wizard held up the taped up foreign object) But you were most certainly not confused when you used this foreign object repeatedly to hit 'Superstar' Graham with cheapshots and weaken him and set him up for defeat in your match at 'Wiinter Warfare'! If you don't get away with using that illegal weapon then there's no way you could have beaten the 'Superstar' because it was a pro-style match! Your denials tonight ring hollow! Everything you're saying is a blatant lie, Steiner!"
RS: "No! No! Everything I'm saying is the tr..."
GW: "You're now in full-blown spin-mode! Deny! Deny! Deny! Isn't that right, boy?!"
RS: "Anyone can watch our match from 'Winter Warfare' and see that I didn't cheat at all! I wrestled a clean match! You can't stand it because I won!"
GW: "Sure! All these people can watch the match over and over on their video players at home! They can play the video in super-duper slo-mo! They can break down the match frame-by-frame! But they're not gonna see you cheat because you're very good at it! I've been in this sport for years and I've never seen a better cheater than you! You're so skilled at it that even I have to admit that I'm begrudgingly impressed! But I'm the Grand Wizard! I know all and see all! And with my eagle eye, while standing there at ringside, I saw the cheating by you, Rick! Everyone else in the arena that night may have missed it! But the Grand Wizard didn't! You had better listen to..."
Pres. Watts came out on the entrance stage with mic in hand. He received a tepid response.
BW: "Grand Wizard. 'Superstar' Graham. Last week after you accused Rick Steiner of cheating in the match against 'Superstar' at 'Winter Warfare' you know what? I watched the match a few times. I even super slo-mo'ed it and watched it on one occasion from start-to-finish frame-by-frame. I saw nothing. I saw no evidence of cheating whatsoever by Rick Steiner. And now, for you to come out here and say that you were the only one who saw Steiner cheating that night when there were cameras everywhere, well, I believe it's patently absurd."
GW: "You believe it's patently absurd because you don't like 'Superstar' and the Grand Wizard and you wanted Steiner to win the match! You'll let him get away with murder because you're friends with him! That's a conflict of interest right there!"
BW: "I have known Rick for years. But it's strictly a professional relationship. Are you guys angling for a President's Championship match here? That's what this is all about, isn't it?"
Graham: "President Watts. It was made perfectly clear last week. If Rick Steiner agrees to give me a President's Championship match, then his cheating ways in our match at 'Winter Warfare' will be forgotten."
BW: "And if you don't get a President's Championship match? This sounds like match-extortion to me."
GW: "This isn't match-extortion as you call it, President Watts! It would be an act of social wrestling justice! Graham was cheated out of a chance to win against Steiner in their previous match because Steiner took it upon himself to use a weapon and break the rules repeatedly! You need to do the right thing and give 'Superstar' the title match! That happens, then the past is a distant memory never to be mentioned again. But, if 'Superstar' doesn't get the match, then we will come on this program week after week and remind everyone one of Steiner's deviant actions at 'Winter Warfare'. And we will go out of our way to hound Mr. Steiner about his dirty deeds! Bottom line: No President's Championship match! No Peace!"
BW: "I'm not gonna give 'Superstar' Graham a President's Championship match just because you threaten to come out here every week and make asses of yourselves! That is absolutely out..."
RS: "President Watts. I want the match."
RS: "Make the match. I'll defend the President's Championship against 'Superstar' Graham."
BW: "This is highly unusual."
Graham: "What's unusual about it? Steiner's making sense and that doesn't happen very often."
RS: "To shut 'Superstar' and Grand Wizard up and make this situation a thing of the past, let's do this. Let's have the match. I'm not a big fan of the thought of being slandered every week."
GW: "President Watts! It's our word vs. his! He says we're slandering him and we say we're telling the truth! We can keep this thing going...forever!"
BW: "I think I might be going against my better judgment here. But the thought of you two coming out here week-after-week and making these claims, which I think are baseless, is just too much to even want to begin to try and comprehend. So, the match will happen. Next week here on 'Slam!', it's gonna be Rick..."
RS: "Not next week! Forget it! Tonight! Let's have the match tonight! I want to put this matter to bed as soon as possible! Please, President Watts! Let me and 'Superstar' rumble this evening!"
Watts walked around for a minute.
GW: "You heard the man, President..."
BW: "Shut up! OK! Rick, you want the match tonight to put this matter behind you and I don't blame you one bit for wanting that! So, President's Championship! Rick Steiner defends against 'Superstar' Graham tonight right here on 'Slam!' Let's hook 'em up!"
Graham and Wizard seemed pleased as a furious and flustered Steiner looked on from the ring.)
(Announcers discussed Watts adding the PC Match tonight. Hyped still to come: UWL WTT Title Match: Hall & Nash (WTTC) vs. Piper (C) & Wahoo; Buzz Sawyer vs. Harley Race; an i'view with mgr. Dark Journey and her tag team Lord Humongous & Missing Link; a look back at last week's assault on DDP by Father Dutch and Grog; JJ Dillon speaks; another look at the Nasty Boys who are coming to the UWL; and more. Said Madusa vs. Angelina Love was coming up!)
(Backstage: Larry Nelson i'viewed UWL WC Roddy Piper & Wahoo McDaniel in the locker room. Asked about tonight's WTT Title match against Hall & Nash of The Firm and what appears to be a continuing smear campaign against Piper by The Firm and JJ Dillon.
RP: "Larry Nelson, it's like this. I am standing here right now with my good friend Wahoo McDaniel. If Wahoo thought I was up to no good, do you think he would be standing next to me right now? Do you think he would be going into battle with me for a second straight week against members of The Firm? The answer to that is obvious. We have every intention of going out to the ring tonight and becoming the new UWL World Tag Team Champions. The Firm, JJ Dillon. These guys can say what they want. They can't shake or break our bond with each other. We are friends until the end. The only thing that's going to be broken tonight is Hall and Nash's reign as the tag team champions."
Neslon asked Wahoo his thoughts on the matter and asked about earlier tonight where Piper seemed a little late in helping Wahoo when Wahoo charged to the ring and went after Hall and Nash on his own.
WM: "Hall and Nash made me hot under the collar. I know I startled Roddy when I took off for the ring and went after those two bums. But I knew Roddy would be right there to fight along side me. I had no doubt about that and that's what happened. If Piper was looking to turn his back on me and leave me to the wolves, he could have done it right then. It almost seems like the wrestling media is playing up this matter because it garners more fan interest. Are Wahoo and Roddy on the verge of turning on each other? The answer to that is a resounding 'no'. And we'll prove it tonight. You're gonna see us work like a solid unit just like we did last week against Director Ted DiBiase and Dusty Rhodes. If people want to blow this issue out of proportion that's their business. But the fantasy and the reality will never mesh. Wahoo McDaniel and Roddy Piper are friends for life.")

Madusa vs. Angelina Love
(Love came to the ring to a decent crowd response.
Madusa came out to a good ovation.
Love, a former TNA star, gave Madusa a battle and had chances to beat Madusa. During the match, Ferrari came out and watched from the entrance stage. Tina was in a black cocktail dress, black heels and wearing her trademark tiara. Tina had the Women's WT slung over her shoulder. She also had a mic.
But Madusa proved too much in the end and nailed Love with her German suplex into a bridgeout to score the 1...2...3!
WINNER: Madusa - Pinfall - German Suplex into a Bridgeout - 5:23)
(After the match: Just like last week, as Madusa had her hand raised in victory, Tina started running her mouth.
Tina: "Oh my! I have to say that you beat some serious competition in Angelina Love tonight. That's more than I can say for your match last week where you beat a gal who was on the same level of trashiness as Honey Boo Boo's mom."
Madusa looked on.
Tina: "This was definitely a step in the right direction for climbing back into championship contention, Madusa. But, you're gonna have to beat more than Angelina Love. And you're definitely gonna have to beat better opponents than Honey Boo Boo's mother to get another shot at this belt. The problem for you, Madusa, is whether you can keep it going against stiffer competition. That's a big 'if' if you ask me.
"Say, you know what? I haven't wrestled on 'Slam!' in a few weeks. I need to make sure I keep the ring rust at bay. So I'm asking President Watts to make a match for me next week. And you'll need to watch and study it, Madusa. I'll show you how an unbeatable World Champion does it. Ahhhhhh... It's so great to be the Women's World Champion. It means you're the best. It means I am the 'Queen of the Ring'. And you, why, you're never gonna hold this title. And the one factor in play in all of this that will always separate me from you is that I'm powered by the spirit of Mildred Burke. I feel so honored that her spirit chose me to be her vehicle to achieve wrestling greatness in the modern era. If you're so good, Madusa, why didn't Mildred's spirit choose you? It's because you don't have the 'it' factor that I have. And for over two years now, I have proven that Mildred's spirit made the right decision when she chose to inhabit my body."
Madusa now had the r.a. mic.
Madusa: "Talk all you want, Tina. Say whatever you like about being powered by the super-spirit of a woman wrestler from another time. The fact is we are gonna meet in a match again one day. And I'm gonna beat you and take that title and end your winning streak. That's a promise."
The two looked at each other from a distance and Tina seemed a little more concerned about Madusa's seemingly growing confidence.)
(Announcers discussed Madusa beating Angelina Love and another confrontation with Tina where Madusa re-iterated that she will be the one to topple Tina when the time comes.
Pedicino: "Madusa's confidence is growing. You can sense it. If this keeps up and Madusa knocks off a few more major names in women's wrestling, if I was Tina Ferrari, I'd start getting very worried."

Dark Journey and her tag team Lord Humongous & Missing Link; a look back at last week's assault on DDP by Father Dutch and Grog; another look at the Nasty Boys who are coming to the UWL; and more. Said JJ Dillon is coming up!)
(Backstage: Larry Nelson i'viewed Firm Director Ted DiBiase in The Firm dressing room. Hall and Nash were standing behind him with scowls on their faces and were in their ring attire and Ted was in a suit.
Nelson asked about the recent slump The Firm was in and tonight's WTT Title Match: Hall & Nash (WTTC) vs. Piper (C) & Wahoo.
Ted: "The last couple of weeks have not been good for The Firm. I don't need to tell anyone that. It's all played out right there on national TV. The UWL is now riding a high. They're ecstatic with the way things have turned out recently. But starting tonight, that high comes crashing down. In one match in one night, the UWL wrestlers are gonna be plunged to the lowest depths of despair. We just need that one key win to get back on top of the situation and re-take the driver's seat in this war. Some so-called wrestling 'insiders' have been saying that the momentum has swung so strongly in the UWL's favor that there's no way The Firm can get that momentum back. Those people are idiots. In case you've forgotten, we're The Firm. We are the elite of this sport. Just because the elite has a couple of bad weeks doesn't mean all is lost. Not by a longshot. When we get that next major victory, and we should get it tonight, we'll be back in control. That's a promise you can take to the bank. And then we'll build on that victory until the path to winning this war is completely cleared for us to march in and seize our rightful place as the rulers of the UWL.
"And let's not forget...Roddy Piper. He is the question mark in all of this. What's he gonna do in that ring tonight? Can he stand to share the championship spotlight with his best pal Wahoo? Or is Roddy Piper really all about Roddy Piper? He loves being the UWL World Champion. And I guarantee you that he doesn't like the idea of anyone horning in on his glory. I'll go so far as to say that Piper is worried that Wahoo is closing in on his popularity. Piper's at the top and he looks down on everyone else and he loves it. So, Wahoo, just keep that in mind as you head into the match tonight. You may not just be fighting Hall and Nash. You might also be fighting your BFF Roddy Piper as well.")
(Video aired from last week of JJ Dillon's speech about Wahoo and Piper and Wahoo coming to the ring and confronting JJ.
In-ring: JJ Dillon was in the ring. He was in a suit and had a mic. He was booed.
JJ: "Who will be the man chosen to join Harley Race in JJ Dillon Enterprises? The list of potential candidates, and there are some great ones out there, gets smaller with each passing day. I came out here tonight because there's one particular wrestler I want to talk about. And that wrestler is Chief Wahoo McDaniel.
"Wahoo is the kind of wrestler who would be a great addition to JJ Dillon Enterprises. His list of accomplishments is impressive to say the least. I see in Wahoo a wrestler that can bring the World Title back into the JJ Dillon Enterprises. I make no secret of it, Wahoo is one of the top candidates on my list.
"Wahoo's in the back right now. I hope he's listening to this. Wahoo, Roddy Piper is holding you down. Roddy Piper may be your friend. But he's also keeping you from winning the UWL World Title for a second time. As long as you're close with Piper, Wahoo, don't expect to get a World Title shot as long as Piper is the champion. Wahoo, Roddy knows the threat you would pose to him as a contender for his crown. I believe he's keeping you close precisely because he doesn't want to face you. So you languish, Wahoo. You wither in the shadow of World Champion Roddy Piper. And mark my words, he likes it that way. You need to break free from Piper. You need to get away from him..."
This brought Wahoo, now in his ring attire, out. Wahoo was cheered as he came to the ring. Wahoo got in the ring and looked at JJ.
JJ: "I'm glad you came out here, Wahoo. I would love to have you as a part of JJ Dillon Enterprises. You just need to get away from your friend Roddy Piper. He's keeping you down. The man is grade-A scum of the highes..."
Wahoo had heard enough. He battered JJ with a series of chest chops and JJ dropped the mic. Wahoo whipped JJ into the ropes and caught JJ coming off with his big chop. JJ crashed to the mat and was laid out as an angry Wahoo stood over JJ. Wahoo was shaking and had his fists clenched. Wahoo was able to restrain himself and leave the ring as the crowd cheered him and his actions as he headed to the back.)
(In-ring: JJ Dillon was in the ring with mic in hand. He was in a suit. He was roundly booed.
JJ: "First of all, I want to say that Harley Race is not out here with me right now because he's in the back getting ready for his match with Buzz Sawyer later tonight.
"Now! The waiting period is rapidly drawing to a close! I have eliminated more names from my list of potential candidates to be the newest addition to JJ Dillon Enterprises! But, one name that has not been removed from the list is Chief Wahoo McDaniel. Wahoo, despite our little disagreement out here last week, I still have you listed very high. You are still on my radar. If we could just sit down and talk for a little while I'm certain that I could convince you to join JJ Dillon Enterprises. I've got something to offer you that your friend Roddy Piper never can and never will. And that's the opportunity to become the UWL World Champion for second time.
"You may think to yourself that Piper is such a good friend that all you would have to do is ask for a World Title shot and Piper will give it to you. Ha! Piper may tell you that he'll give you a World Title shot one day. But that day will never come. Wahoo, you know it and I know it. There's an old saying in this business: Do you want friends or do you want to make money and win championships? You sign with me, Wahoo, and I'll make you more money than you ever have in your career. And as for championships, Wahoo, try this on for size. Here in the UWL, I've managed a two-time World Champion, a three-time President's Champion and the tag team champions. Show me another manager here who can come close to those credentials. You can't. Linking up with JJ Dillon Enterprises is linking up with money and titles. It's that simple. You just neeed the right man in your corner, Wahoo. My record speaks for itself. Harley enjoys cashing those big checks embossed with the JJ Dillon Enterprises logo in the upper left-hand corner. He has four total title runs under my management. What more proof do you need that JJ Dillon Enterprises is the way to go?
"Roddy Piper can give you none of that kind of success. The only thing he can do is hold you back and keep you from getting what you deserve. You've got other friends, Wahoo. Losing a snake like Piper as a buddy wouldn't be a big loss. What do you want from life, Wahoo? A best friend who oppresses you? Or do you want to be managed by a man who backs up his talk with his record? I know what choice I would make in this situation. It would be a no-brainer. I would sign up with the person who could take me to the top of my profession. Roddy Piper is just an albatross around your neck. He's nothing but a..."
Wahoo, in his ring attire, came out on the entrance stage with mic on hand.
WM: "JJ, do I have to come down there and do what I did to you last week to drive home the point that I'm not turning on my good friend to sign with a low-life like you?"
JJ: "No need to come down here. My chest still hurts a lot from last week. Just think about what I've said. You're at a fork in the road. It's either friendship with the World Champion or becoming the World Champion for a second time. It's your choice."
WM: "Listen to me..."
Wahoo then stopped talking and blew off JJ with a hand waving gesture and headed to the back as JJ looked on from the ring.)
(Announcers discussed JJ talking about desiring to have Wahoo join JJ Dillon Enterprises and running down Wahoo's best friend Roddy Piper for the second week in a row and Wahoo coming out once again but in the end blowing JJ off.
Hyped still to come: President's Championship Match: Rick Steiner (C) vs. 'Superstar' Graham; Buzz Sawyer vs. Harley Race; an i'view with mgr. Dark Journey and her tag team Lord Humongous & Missing Link; a look back at last week's assault on DDP by Father Dutch and Grog; another look at the Nasty Boys who are coming to the UWL; and more. Said the Word Tag Team Title match was next!)
Match 3 (UWL World Tag Team Title Match)
Hall & Nash (WTTC) (w/ DiBiase) vs. Roddy Piper (C) & Wahoo McDaniel
(Bagpipe music filled the arena as Piper and Wahoo came to the ring to a rousing ovation. Once in the ring, Piper boisterously played to the crowd while Wahoo was more low key in his crowd acknowledgement.
After a brief pause, 'Money' by Pink Floyd played over the p.a. system. Hall, Nash and DiBiase made their way to the ring to the usual mixed crowd reaction. The champs had the titles around their waists. Once in the ring, the champs only briefly played to the crowd.
DiBiase had words with the champs in the corner. Wahoo and Piper talking in their corner.
Ref took the tag belts and held them up for all to see. Ref then called the two teams out to the middle of the ring and laid down the rules and patted all four men down. Ref then sent the teams to their corners.
Ref called for the bell.
Wahoo and Hall started the match. It was an intense fight with two teams who disdain each other going at it. Lots of back-and-forth. Only brief advanatages for either side throughout the match. Near falls, a couple broken up by outside intervention.
During the match, JJ Dillon walked out on the entrance stage and was watching the action. Wahoo had just gotten the upper hand on Nash and had driven Nash to the mat when Wahoo looked over and saw JJ and was briefly distracted. But it was long enough for Nash to recover and attack Wahoo from behind and gain the upper hand. JJ was only on the entrance stage for two or three minutes before he disappeared to the back.
Piper locked Nash in the ankle lock during the match but Nash was able to scoot over by the ropes, get his hand on the bottom rope and force a break in the hold. Hall nailed Wahoo with the Hallinator but Piper saved Wahoo by breaking up the pin try with a stomp to Hall's head.
Also during the match, DiBiase had used his belt to choke out Piper on the floor behind the ref's back.
At the end of the match, Piper and Hall were the legal men in the ring. After some back-and-forth between the pair, Hall gained the advantage with an eye poke. Hall nailed Piper with a series of head slaps and then dropped Piper with a discus punch. Piper crashed to the mat. Hall covered Piper. 1...2... Piper kicked out. As Hall pulled Piper up, Piper unleashed a flurry of boxing style head and body punches on Hall. Hall staggered. Piper whipped Hall into the corner and charged in but Hall got a foot up and Piper slammed into it face first. Piper staggered and turned away from Hall. Hall mounted the middle buckle behind Piper and nailed Piper with a diving bulldog. Hall for the cover. 1...2... Wahoo hit the ring and stomped on Hall's back to break up the pin try. Nash hit the ring and went to clothesline Wahoo but Wahoo ducked the move and came back with a stiff flurry of chops on Nash. Wahoo drove Nash by the ropes and Nash clmbed out of the ring and dropped to the floor and Wahoo followed him out. Ref distraced by the pair. Hall and Piper had gotten to their feet and moved in on one another when Hall kicked Piper in the gut. Hall then hit Piper with a flurry of punches and then nailed Piper with a chokeslam. Wahoo and Nash now fighting next to the ring on the floor. Ref trying to order each man back to his corner. With the ref distracted, DiBiase ran over and grabbed one of the tag titles off the timekeeper's table. DiBiase got up on the apron with the belt and Hall grabbed Piper and maneuvered Piper into position while holding Piper from behind so DiBiase could hit Piper with the belt. DiBiase swung the belt and Piper escaped Hall's grasp and the belt slammed into the side of Hall's face. Hall stumbled backwards and crashed to the mat. Piper let Ted have it with a flurry of punches that staggered Ted and then nailed Ted with a running clothesline that sent Ted crashing to the floor as the fans roared. Fighting had fizzled on the floor as Nash saw what had happened to Ted. Nash went over to check on his boss. In the ring, Piper waited as the stunned Hall got to his feet. Hall turned towards Piper...WHAM!...Piper steamrolled Hall with the spear. Piper covered Hall and hooked the leg. 1...2... Nash tried to hurriedly climb in the ring to break up the pin count but tripped over the middle rope and fell to the mat. ...3! Ref called for the bell. Fans ear-splitting loud. Ref went over and took the tag belts from r.a. Marshall and said a few words to him.
Piper jumped into Wahoo's arms and Piper raised his index finger in the air signaling they were #1. Ref then went over and handed the belts to Roddy and Wahoo as the cheering continued and then raised their hands in victory.
LM: "Ladies and Gentlemen! In a time of 8 minutes, 42 seconds, your winners...and NEW UWL World Tag Team Champions...Roddy Piper and Wahoo McDaniel!"
Outside the ring on the floor, Hall, Nash and DiBiase met over by the ring steps and DiBiase angrily berated his men. Hall and Nash got in few words during the tirade and then a very pissed DiBiase ordered his men back up the aisle to the back. In the ring, Piper and Wahoo soaked in the adulation of the crowd and raised their new belts high in the air to solid approval. The pair then headed back up the aisle with the titles slung over their shoulders and basking in the glow of another big win over The Firm.
WINNER: Piper & Wahoo - Pinfall - Piper pinned Hall after the Spear - 8:42)
(Announcers discussed Piper and Wahoo winning the tag belts from Hall and Nash. Wondered if things were starting to fracture for The Firm judging by DiBiase's angry tirade at Hall and Nash after the match. Hyped still to come: President's Championship Match: Rick Steiner (C) vs. 'Superstar' Graham; Buzz Sawyer vs. Harley Race; a look back at last week's assault on DDP by Father Dutch and Grog; another look at the Nasty Boys who are coming to the UWL. Said an i'view with Dark Journey and her men Lord Humongous & Missing Link was next.)
(In-ring: Marshall i'viewed Dark Journey w/ Link & Lord.
The trio came to the ring to a loud ovation to the strains of 'Breaking The Law' by Judas Priest.
Before getting in the ring, Link went over and slammed his own head into the ring post a few times. Once in the ring, Lord pounded his chest and Link stomped around the ring before Journey got him to calm down.
The two men stood behind Journey.
LM: "Dark Journey, this is the first time we've really gotten to talk to you here on 'Slam!'. We already know what Lord Humongous and the Missing link can do in the ring. My first question is: where did you find these men?"
DJ: "Lee, I would love to answer that question. But there's a reason these men are billed as being from 'parts unknown'. It's a secret I can't openly discuss."
LM: "What are the goals of your men in the UWL?"
DJ: "Our ultimate goal is simple: to become the UWL World Tag Team Champions one day. That's what good, competitive tag teams always aim for and we're no different. By the way, congratulations to Roddy Piper and Wahoo McDaniel on becoming the new World Tag Team Champs tonight!"
LM: "In the Handicap match at 'Winter Warfare' against the Anderson brothers, everyone was suprised to see the vast number of wrestling moves that Lord Humongous and Missing Link actually know. Who trained these men?"
DJ: "I have connections. I can only say they've been trained by some of the best. Even the Anderson brothers were stunned by what Lord and Link could do in the ring..."
Out on the entrance stage came the Anderson brothers. They were in street clothes and Ole had a mic. They were strongly booed.
Ole: "Dark Journey. I have to admit that Lars, Gene and I were shocked by the wrestling knowledge your two neanderthals have. But, they're still neanderthals. And that means they're not all that highly evolved. You can always.... Hey! Is Missing Link trying to eat the microphone?!"
Link had taken the mic from Lee Marshall and was starting to gnaw on it. Marshall tried to take it away but Link wouldn't give it up. Journey, who had turned her attention to the Anderson brothers, talked to Link and told and gestured for him not to eat the mic and give it back to Lee Marshall. After a little prodding, Link gave the mic back.
Ole: "Haha! I don't believe this. These guys can't be for real."
DJ: "They're very real, Ole. You and your brothers know that very well since you lost to them at 'Winter Warfare'."
Ole: "Unfortunately, we did lose to Jason Voorhes and Piltdown Man, there. But they caught us by suprise. You see, now that we know what Lord Humongous and Missing Link can do in the ring, there's no way they could upset us in a match again. I'm confident of that."
DJ: "You greatly underestimate the intelligence of these men. There's a lot more to them than meets the eye."
Ole: "I don't think so. But, we did not come out here to debate what's larger, Lord Humongous's and Missing Link's IQ's or their shoe sizes. We came out here for one reason. Can President Watts come out here for a moment?"
After a brief pause, Watts walked out on the entrance stage with mic in hand. Not much crowd repsonse.
BW: "What is it, Ole?"
Ole: "Do you want the long answer to that question or the direct and to the point version?"
BW: "Let's do direct and to the point. We don't have all day."
Ole: "We want a re-match with Lord Humongous and the Missing Link."
BW: "You mean another Hanidcap match re-match or..."
Ole: "That's right. We want another Handicap match with those two Harvard graduates."
DJ: "Let's do it again. That's what I say."
BW: "Alright. Next week right here on 'Slam!', we're gonna have a 'Winter Warfare' re-match. It's gonna be a Handicap Match: The Anderson Brothers vs. Lord Humongous and The Missing Link! Let's get ready to hook 'em up!"
Crowd cheered the news.
Ole: "Smart move, Watts. Dark Journey, you need to explain to your pet rocks that next week the results are gonna be different! Very different!"
Journey and her men looked on from the ring as the Andersons looked at them from the entrance stage as the segment ended.)
(Announcers discussed Watts making a Handicap re-match pitting the Anderson brothers against Lord Humongous & Missing Link for next week. Hyped still to come: President's Championship Match: Rick Steiner (C) vs. 'Superstar' Graham; a look back at last week's assault on DDP by Father Dutch and Grog; another look at the Nasty Boys who are coming to the UWL. Said Race vs. Sawyer was next!)
Buzz Sawyer vs. Harley Race (w/ JJ)
(Race and JJ came to the ring to boos.
Sawyer came to the ring to the strains of 'Delirious' by ZZ top and got a good ovation. Sawyer slapped and bit the hands of a few of the fans on the way to the ring. Once in the ring, Sawyer ran around barking and the crowd barked back. Sawyer's bark-fest was cut short when Race attacked him. Ref called for the bell.
JJ never interfered in the short bout.
Race took the majority of the match.
At the end of the match, Race was in control. Race whipped Sawyer into the ropes and caught Buzz coming off with a belly-to-back suplex. Race then grabbed Sawyer and went to hoist him up for the piledriver but Buzz twice blocked the move and backdropped Race to the mat. Both men got to their feet. Buzz charged at Race and swung wildly at Race and missed and Race nailed Buzz with a solid right to the head. Race then grabbed Buzz by the sides of head and blasted Buzz with a big headbutt. Buzz staggered and Race still holding Buzz's head. Race nailed Buzz with a second headbutt. Buzz really wobbly now. Race looked out at the crowd and went to headbutt Buzz again but Buzz blocked the move, kicked Race in the gut and then nailed Race with a big headbutt of his own. Now Race staggered but Buzz not letting go of Race's head. Buzz nailed Race with two more headbutts and let go of Race. Race stunned and wobbly. Buzz moved in and hoisted Race across his shoulders and nailed Race with the Buzz Saw (aka, Attitude Adjustment). Buzz covered Race and hooked the leg. 1...2...3! Ref called for the bell. Fans cheered. Ref raised Buzz's hand in victory and then Buzz left the ring and climbed over the ringside barricade and stood on a front row seat and barked and the crowd barked back. Buzz then climbed back over the ringside barricade and barked some more as he headed to the back as the fans responded with more barks of their own.
WINNER: Buzz - Pinfall - Buzz Saw - 4:17)
(Announcers discussed Sawyer beating Race. They then sent it back to the locker room where a celebration was happening.)
(Backstage: Larry Nelson was in the 'fan fave' locker room and Roddy Piper and Wahoo McDaniel were being showered with champagne by other 'fan fave' wrestlers. They were holding their titles.
LN: "Whoa! Roddy Piper and Chief Wahoo McDaniel! You're the new World Tag Team Champions! How does it feel to not only win the tag team gold, but also do it against Hall and Nash of The Firm?!"
RP: "Larry Nelson. I can't describe how great the feeling I have right now is. To not only beat Hall and Nash to win the belts. But to win the belts with your best friend, man, it doesn't get any better than this. The UWL has The Firm on the ropes now. They are reeling. They are feeling the heat as their goal of one day taking over the UWL is slipping from their grasp. I thought winning the World Title was the best night of my career. I was wrong. This is the best night of my career. And that's because this accomplishment was with Wahoo McDaniel."
Larry got doused with some champagne.
LN: "Thanks, Hugh. You'll have the dry cleaning bill tomorrow."
Hugh then gave Larry a big bearhug and lifted Larry off the ground before heading back out of camera range.
LN: "Wahoo, I know you've got to be a happy man right now!"
WM: "You get in this business to win championships. But how often do you get to win a championship with your closest friend? This is truly indescribable. Roddy, I couldn't have done it without you. We've battled The Firm and took the fight to them. They are in disarray. The UWL now has its boot on the back of The Firm's necks. You can sense it. If The Firm doesn't turn things around soon, then this war may be over sooner than they could ever imagine.
"Some people have been saying a lot of negative things about Roddy recently. Things that can ruin a man's reputation. But tonight, we showed that our bonds of friendship are stronger than ever and those bonds will never be broken. I trust Roddy Piper with my life. He's a solid, stand-up guy who has proven time and time again that he knows what loyalty is all about. You don't find many people like that in life. I'm honored that he's my best friend."
RP: "And I know I can trust Wahoo through thick and thin. Those talking about me, they're just trouble-makers looking to create problems where there are none for their own sinister purposes."
President Watts walked into the picture.
BW: "Roddy and Wahoo! I just want to say a personal congratulations on winning the UWL World Tag Team Titles tonight! This was a huge win for the UWL over The Firm..."
Suddenly, Hall, Nash and DiBiase stormed into the dressing room. The raucous locker room suddenly got quiet and the champagne stopped flowing.
BW: "Hey! This is not your dressing room! Get out..."
Ted: "Watts! We'll be out of here in just a minute! Roddy Piper! Wahoo McDaniel! Enjoy this moment! You say that the UWL has The Firm in serious trouble! Ha! President Watts! We want to trigger the re-match clause in our contract as soon as possible!"
BW: "Being the former World Tag Team Champions, Hall and Nash do have a right to a re-match!"
RP: "Any time, boys! Any time!"
Ted: "Great! Let's do it next week on 'Slam!'"
WM: "You want your re-match that soon! You guys can have it as far as we're concerned!"
BW: "Since a re-match is mandatory, I'm going to go ahead and make the match. Next week, it's gonna be Roddy Piper and Wahoo McDaniel defending the UWL World Tag Team Titles right here on 'Slam!' against Hall and Nash"
Ted: "That's all we wanted to hear! Next Tuesday, The Firm gets back to the winning ways they're used to when we win back OUR World Tag team Titles!"
DiBiase, Hall and Nash glared at Piper and Wahoo.
BW: "DiBiase, you guys leave...now!"
The Firm members lingered for a few more seconds and then turned and left the locker room celebration.
RP: "We'll concern ourselves with the match next week starting tomorrow! But tonight, it's gonna be a big party to celebrate Roddy Piper and his good friend Wahoo McDaniel winning the World Tag Team Titles!"
The wrestlers then resumed their locker room party.)
(Announcers hyped still to come: President's Championship Match: Rick Steiner (C) vs. 'Superstar' Graham.)
(Announcers intro'd video from last week of DDP being attacked by Father Dutch and Grog after DDP's match with Rip Oliver.
After the match: As DDP recovered in the ring and started making it to his feet, Father Dutch and Grog hit the ring and attacked DDP. They knocked DDP to the mat and put the boots to him and then Grog picked up DDP and nailed him with a pumphandle slam. DDP laid out. Father Dutch ordered DDP held by Grog. Grog pulled DDP up and held him as Father Dutch brandished a small chain from his pants pocket and wrapped it around
his fist. Father Dutch reared back and popped DDP with his chain-laden fist three times. Grog let go of DDP and DDP crashed to the mat. Father Dutch went over by the ring ropes and demanded the mic from r.a. Marshall. Marshall handed over the mic. Father Dutch then ordered Grog to pull DDP to his knees. DDP was now bleeding.
FD: "I want you to see this, Dallas Page! Show it!"
Video aired of DDP laying out both Grog and Father Dutch with the Diamond Cutter out on the floor on seperate occasions a few weeks ago.
Father Dutch grabbed DDP by the hair and got right in DDP's bloody face.
FD: "You committed a major sin against us when you used your sin-laden Diamond Cutter on each of us! Your punishment has just begun, sinner!"
Father Dutch looked nose-to-nose at DDP one last time and then tossed down the mic and he started to leave the ring as DDP toppled back over to the mat. Grog got a few more stomps in on DDP before the pair left the ring and headed to the back to boos.
Comments then aired from DDP and Father Dutch.
Grog was standing behind Father Dutch in front of a black curtain. FD had a mic.
FD: "Dallas Page...SINNER! You lay your filthy hands on me and my congregant Grog and hit us with your blasphemous Diamond Cutter! Last week, you shed blood because of the sins you committed against us! And I saw it in a vision while fasting and praying in my prayer closet, more of your blood will be shed by OUR hands! Page, you have crossed a line in which redemption for you will be painful, grueling and without mercy!"
DDP was standing in the UWL interview area with mic in hand. He had a white bandage on his head from where he was busted open by FD and Grog.
DDP: "Father Dutch! You want a holy war with DDP! Well, you and your acolyte Grog have got one! You're unlike any other holy man I've ever encountered; and I don't mean that in a good way! You unfairly smear decent religious people with your less than holy actions! I felt every blow with your chain-wrapped fist, man! And I'm gonna carry this anger, righteous anger, into my crusade against you!")
(Announcers discussed the DDP vs. Father Dutch/Grog situation. Announcers then intro'd a second video of the Nasty Boys...who are coming soon to the UWL.
Video opened with the shot of a house that had burned to the ground. Some smoke was still rising from the ashes as members of the fire dept. were on the scene. Camera panned back and there were the Nasty Boys standing in the foreground. They were wearing their ring attire and black fire helmets that had 'Nasty Boys' scrawled across the front.
Jerry Sags: "Man! I'm really gonna miss that house."
Brian Knobs: "So am I, Sags. So am I.
"We're standing out here in front of what used to be our house."
Sags: "We called it 'Nasty Boy Central'! Hahahaha!"
Knobs: "We had a lot of hot parties there over the weeks! But I guess this one got too hot...literally! Hahaha!"
Sags: "Eh! We'll find a new place to live. We always do."
Knobs: "How many places have we already lived in 2013?!"
Sags: "Counting the 'Gray Ash Hotel' here, I think it's six!"
Knobs: "Six?! My God! That's all! We've got a lot of work to do if we want to break our record for houses lived in in a calendar year!"
Sags: "Brian, I think I'm ready to settle down! Let's try to not go over 30 this year!"
Knobs: "Sags, I'm starting to worry about you, man! You're becoming too domesticated!"
Sags: "I know! But that comes with maturity!"
Knobs: "Well, we just want all you awesome UWL fans to know that house or no house, the Nasty Boys are headed to the UWL! Be ready, baby! And prepare for a whole new level of nastiness!"
Sags: "Wherever the Nasty Boys go the party is soon to follow! The Nasty Boys are comin'! It's gonna be a symphony of nastiness as we nasty-size the UWL!"
Knobs: "But today, I think we need to start looking for a new party house, Sags!"
Sags: "Great! Wanna take the truck?!"
Knobs (big smile): "Why not!"
Nasty Boys walked over to a big beer delivery truck, got in and drove off.)

(Announcers then said the PC Match: Steiner (C) vs. Graham was next!)
Match 5 (President's Championship)
Rick Steiner (C) vs. 'Superstar' Graham (w/ Grand Wizard)
(Graham and Wizard came to the ring to the song 'California Dreamin'. They were booed. Wizard had his trusty cane with him. Once in the ring, Graham struck some bodybuilder poses and then flexed and kissed his biceps.
'Welcome To The Jungle' came pouring out of the p.a. systeam and Rick Steiner (C) came to the ring to a strong ovation. He was wearing the President's Championship around his waist. Steiner barked walking down the aisle and the crowd barked back. Steiner then ran around ringside barking and the crowd barked some more. More of the same from Steiner when he got in the ring.
Ref took the title from Steiner and held it up for all to see. Ref then called the match participants to the middle of the ring and laid down the ground rules and patted each man down. Ref then sent each man to their repective corners.
Ref called for the bell and it was on...
Graham gave as much as he got from Steiner. The match was a battle of power wrestling and both men came close to winning during the bout but neither man wanted to taste defeat.
At the end of the match, Graham had just regained the advantage and pummeled Steiner with a flying shoulder tackle. Steiner crashed to the mat. Graham backed up against the ropes and waited for Steiner to get to his feet. Steiner got up and Graham went to nail Steiner with his big running clothesline but Steiner ducked the move and spun around and stunned Graham with a series of punches to the head. Steiner then whipped Graham into the ropes and caught Graham coming off in the belly-to-belly position. The two men stood face-to-face for a moment and then Steiner wasted Graham with his overhead belly-to-belly suplex. Graham crashed to the mat. The dazed Graham got to his feet when Steiner popped Graham with a bridging German suplex for the pin try. 1...2...2-1/2... Graham barely got a shoulder up. Crowd groaned. Grand Wizard then jumped up on the apron and climbed in the ring. Steiner went over and grabbed Wizard by the lapels of his tie-dyed tux. Steiner was shaking Wizard near the ropes. Ref came over and tried to separate the two but instead got entangled with the two men. While that was going on, Graham had managed to regain enough of his senses to get to his knees behind them. As Steiner, the ref and Wizard were a tangled mass, Wizard was able to reach into his outside left pocket on his tux jacket and pull out a foreign object and toss it in Graham's direction without it being detected by Steiner or the ref. The weapon hit the mat and the camera caught a brief glimpse of it.
Stack: "That's the foreign object Wizard and Graham accused Steiner of using against Graham in their match at 'Winter Warfare'!"
Graham snapped up the object and got to his feet. Graham was doubled over at the waist and had his right hand concealed next to his leg. The tangle was finally separated and Steiner looked to go back after Graham. As the ref was about to turn his attention back to the action, Wizard suddenly grabbed the ref and had the ref's head held down on his shoulder. Ref struggled to free himself but Wizard wouldn't let go.
Steiner grabbed the bent over Graham by the head and Graham suddenly shot up...WHAM!...Graham caught Steiner flush in the jaw with a foreign object-laden right hand. Steiner crashed to the match. Graham dropped the weapon in the side of his tights. Wizard let go of the ref just as Graham covered Steiner. Graham didn't even bother to hook the leg. 1...2...3! Ref called for the bell. Some of the fans cheered Graham. Ref went over and said something to r.a. Marshall and took the title from him. Wizard, who had only moved to the apron, got back in the ring and was ecstatic. Ref handed Graham the title and raised Graham's hand in victory. Steiner conscious but still down and dazed from the foreign object shot.
LM: "Ladies and Gentlemen! In a time of 7 minutes, 36 seconds, your winner...and NEW President's Champion...'Superstar' Graham!"
As Graham and Wizard celebrated and played to a booing crowd in the ring, Ken Patera, in street clothes, came in the ring and started intensely talking to the ref. Patera gestured with a mock punch to his own jaw that Graham had used a weapon. Ref pointed to his own eyes and said he didn't see it. Graham turned and saw Patera and told Patera to get out of the ring because it was Graham's moment. Graham then turned away from Patera and held the title over his head while facing the crowd. Wizard looking out at the crowd also. Patera came up behind Graham, reached into Graham's tights and brandished the foreign object for the ref to see. Ref took the object. Graham and Wizard started arguing with the ref. Ref went over and called r.a. Marshall to the apron. Graham and Wizard were right behind the ref and continued to harangue him.
LM: "I have just been informed that because 'Superstar' Graham used a foreign object to affect the outcome of the match, the referee has decided to wave off the decision and re-start the match!"
Crowd popped. Patera now out on the apron. Graham and Wizard still all over the ref. Ref called for the bell to re-start the match. graham still had the title in his hand. Steiner had been recovering during the post-match fray and took immediate advantage. He came up behind Graham, dropped down and rolled Graham up from behind and Graham lost his grip on the belt. Patera jumped in the ring to make sure Wizard didn't interfere. 1...2...3! Ref called for the bell. Fans popped big-time. Ref picked up the belt and handed it to Steiner and raised his hand in victory. Graham got up and he and Wizard were beside themselves. The two had more words for the ref. Steiner had left the ring and was celebrating doggie-style at ringside. Patera was out on the apron. Graham turned and walked over by the ropes and pointed an accusatory finger in Patera's face while Wizard still pleaded his case with the ref.
LM: "You're winner and STILL President's Champion...Rick Steiner!"
Graham and Patera were having a heated face-to-face exchange...

(Backstage: Cameras cut to a shot of new WTT Champs Roddy Piper and Wahoo McDaniel walking backstage. The men were all smiles and were leaving the arena. They were in street clothes and each had a duffle bag slung over their shoulder. As they got to the exit, the smile suddenly melted from Wahoo's face and he turned to his right. Standing by the door was one JJ Dillon. Wahoo looked at Dillon.
JJ: "Congratulations, Wahoo. By winning the tag team titles with Roddy Piper, you've played right into his hands. You'll never, ever get the World Title shot that you deserve as long as he's World Champion."
Wahoo grabbed JJ by the lapels of his suit jacket and drove JJ into the wall. Wahoo got right in JJ's grill.
Wahoo: "Look, Dillon! You had better..."
Piper moved in.
RP: "Let him go, man. JJ's not worth it."
Wahoo held JJ for a few seconds longer and then let him go and Wahoo and Roddy walked out of the building as the camera caught a shot of Dillon watching the pair leave as the program faded to black.)
