Big Jim’s & Three Guys from Nowhere presents
NXT Wrestling (2014-15) on the WWE Network
Minnreg Hall – Largo, FL Att: 400



Commentators; Corey Graves & Rich Brennan
Referees; Derrick Moore & Drake Wurtz
Ring; JoJo Offerman Interviews; Dasha Kuret

1. Colin Cassidy with Carmella and Enzo Amore vs Dash Wilder; Double Count-Out. Referee Derrick Moore didn’t appreciate Cassidy having two in his corner so he quickly found a way to banish bith Carmella and Enzo. Surprisingly it was Dash who showed the mean side and a much rougher style. The Action went OOR where Dash hit Colin with a Yakaza Kick that dazed him. Cassidy was able to rebound and climbed to the top of the Turnbuckle. He performed an Empire Drop crashing onto Dash. Neither wrestler was able to make it back to the ring. 5:10

2. Mojo Rawley; Hyper Drive (Running Seated Senton) Pin over Chad Gable. Rawley, who is an ex-NFL player with the Arizona Cardinals under his real name Dean Muhtadi, took care of business in the ring. After a Slingshot Suplex Rawley used his Hyper Drive finisher to get the Pin. 3:25

3. The Bruise Crew (Angelo Dawkins and Sawyer Fulton) beat The Blue Chips (Jason Jordan and Tye Dillinger). This was a fairly even match when Tye tried an all or nothing Suicide Dive. After Dillinger crashed to an empty canvas, Dawkins picked him up and performed a Running Slam. Fulton finished the match with a Falling Knee for the pin. 11:13

4. Eva Marie won by Count-Out over Charlotte. Charlotte was on control in the ring and after a Flying Legdop she appeared to have the pin but Referee Drake Wurtz called it 2 and ½. The action went OOR where Eva grabbed a handful of sand from a box under the ring. She threw it into Charlotte’s face and immediately followed with a DDT onto the floor. Charlotte was out cold as Eva climbed back into the ring. 4:53

5. Bull Dempsey; Diving Headbutt Pin over Alex Riley. Riley had the better of this match except for the conclusion. A Top Rope Springboard folled by a Running Face Smash should have had Dempsey pinned by Referee Derrick Moore was out of place and failed to see what would have been a three count. Dempsey countered with a Vicious Double Rope Burn and then the finishing Diving Headbutt as Alex was shaking off the sting of the Rope Burn. 5:48

6. Balor/Itami (Finn Balor and Hideo Itami) beat The Legionnaires (Marcus Louis and Sylvester Lefort). Louis had Itami set up and tried a Torpedo Dive that missed. He got a Jumping Spin Kick as a reward. Itami and Balor followed with a Double Foot Stomp trhat sealed the victory. 12:52

7. NXT Title – Baron Corbin (Challenger) pinned Sami Zahn (Champion). Corbin wanted this win in the worst way so he pulled out all his cheating stops to gain the victory. In spite of it all, the match was decded on the UNUSUAL CHART. Bull Dempsey completed an interview with Dasha Kuret before the match and was near ringside watching. When Referee Derrick More got caught in a smash by both wrestlers and was distracted trying to shake off the daze. Bull Ran over to the ring and slammed a Folded Chair over Sami’s head. When Referee Moore turned to see the action, Corbin was pinning Zahn. BVarin Corbin is the NEEEEEEEEWWWWWWWWWWWW NXT Champion. 8:24

The Black Forest Inn & The Tavern on George presents;
NWA Wrestling (1948-1956)
Barton St. Arena – Hamilton, Ontario Att: 4,586



Commentators; Vince Lloyd & Russ Davis
Referees; Ted Thomas & Abe Coleman Ring; Taffy Tucker

1. The Golden Terror pinned Mighty Mickey Cortalano. The Terror made his presence known by immediately attacking Mighty Mickey before the match. Referee Ted Thomas could have called for a DQ but allowed the infraction as a start to the match. The Terror didn’t let up on the youngster and finally resorted to using a Hidden Foreign Object to smash Mickey in the chops. The Terror used the Ropes for Leverage during the pin. 4:51

2. Tommy Nelson won by Count-Out over Count Edmund Von Albers. The Count was booed & jeered from the time he entered the arena and the jeering continued. During the match Von Albers used some Eye Rakes and Rope Burns to gain an advantage. A Running hammer put Nelson down but for some reason Von Albers bailed from the ring and started arguing with some fans. Referee Abe Coleman was counting and Nelson was able to get to his feet but the 10 count found Von Albers still OOR and he was counted out. 2:35

3. Women’s Match - Ida Mae Martinez won by DQ over Terry Majors. Terry who is known for her rough tactics was being watched closely by Referee Ted Thomas. Majors used a Throat Slam Suplex to try and get a Pin but Thomas questioned the Choke. Terry got angry and started arguing with Thomas. It resulted in Majors pushing Referee Thomas. He immediately called for the bell. 6:56

4. Doran O’Hara won by DQ over Chief Oosley Saunooke with Princess Tona Tomah. As they entered the arena The Chief and Tona greeted the fans with loud War Cries as part of their intimidation. Before the match began Referee Abe Coleman warned the Chief and Tona about foul play. Of course The Chief and Tona glanced at Abe with a “Who, Us????????” look. It didn’t take long for Tona to get involved in the match. She tripped Doran and then flashed a Knife as he was getting up. The Chief rammed Doran’s head to the Turnbuckle and Tona used a Loaded Tom Tom (backside is metal) to smash O’Hara over the head. Referee Abe Coleman saw the infraction and called for the DQ. 6:48

5. The Whiz Kids (Guy and Joe Brunetti beat The Gardinia’s (Eddie and Tony Faietta). The Gardinia’s named because both Eddie and Tony Faietta wear a Gardinia as they enter the ring. The Gardinia’s used Dirty Doubleteaming to try and get and edge but The Whiz Kids were too quick and were able to counter the moves. A Flying Knee by Joe Brunetti on Eddie set up the Top Rope Dropkick Pin by Guy. This high flying excitement brought the fans to their feet. 12:11

6. Dory Funk SR. won by DQ over “The Swedish Angel” Tor Johnson. Johnson began the match by chasing Ring Announcer Taffy Tucker from the ring. Dory used scientific moves to gain an edge and frustrate the big man. Not one to take things lightly, Johnson bailed from the ring and threw a chair at Dory who was still in the ring. Johnson picked up a trable and threw it into the ring. Referee Abe Coleman called for the DQ. 9:08

7. Whipper Billy Watson and Sterling “Dizzy” Davis; No Contest – Too Much Blood. Davis had a Sharp Object that he used to cut Billy. Billy was trying to fight off the object and it resulted in Dizzy getting cut too. The blood was flowing in this match yet both wrestlers were able to mount an offense at different times. Billy hooked in a Canuck Commando Unconscious (Sleeperhold) but was unable to hold it because of too much blood. Referee Ted Thomas ruled that the match was over and ruled a No Contest. 11:46

The Brownstone Diner & Johnny Rockets presents;
NWA Wrestling (1948-1956) on the DuMont Network
Jersey City Armory – Jersey City, NJ Att: 7,418



Commentators; Dennis James & Morris Siegal
Referees; Bert Ruby & Jack Dempsey
Ring; Boots Ruggles Interviews; Dennis James

1. Texas Jack Bence; Kick to Midsection Pin over Graveyard Walter Hudson. Graveyard is a local favorite from nearby Weehawken who does House Shows. He was able to avoid and frustrate Texas Jack for a few minutes by running in the ring but he made a serious error in judgement when he attempted a Corner Splash. Jack moved aside and Graveyard crashed into the turnbuckle. Jack rammed Hudson’s head to the turnbuckle and then Kicked him in the Midsection for the Pin. 2:33

2. Chief Suni War Cloud and Dreamboat Art Walge; Double Count-Out. The Chief was in control with War Dance Knee Lifts and Chops that would have normally had an opponent pinned but Texas Jack Bence waiting at ringside took advantage of a distraction and pulled the Dreamboat from the ring. The Chief followed but was getting interference from Texas Jack Suni was fighting with Dreamboat. Time ran out and both wrestlers were counted out. The Chief and Texas Jack had a shoving contest as they were escorted from ringside. The normally tough referee Jack Dempsey could have DQ’d the Dreamboat but Jack had no idea if Walge had anything to do with Bence’s interference. 4:51

3. Midget Match – Marvelous Miltie and Farmer Pete; Time Limit Draw. This was a fast action match that had Headcrackers, Corkscrew Splashes, Backroll Presses and even several Leaps from the Top Rope. The crowd was on edge with the number of pin attempts that were avoided with kick outs. Pete plated a Falling Knee that may have gotten a pin just as time ran out. 10:00

4. Women’s Match - Ella Waldek; Count-Out over Barbara Baker. Both women had chances in the match but to their credit they were able to avoid pins. Barbara’s best chance came after a Double Underhook DDT while Ella’s opportunity was after a Throat Drop onto the Ropes. After the action went OOR Barbara got tangled in some TV cords and as the wrestlers attempted to get back to the ring, Barbara tripped. Ella slipped in just before the 10 count. 6:29

5. The Von Erich’s (Fritz and Waldo) beat Hans and Fritz (The Schnabel’s). The Schnabel’s originally from Belgium now call home Bristol, CT. They were cheered as they entered the arena. Of course Fritz and Waldo Von Erich are goose stepping Germans hated by the fans. They are constantly booed. The Von Erich’s rolled on a Doubleteam and they made good use of their Dirty Tactics. Waldo likes to use a Vicious Mouth Ripper while Fritz has a headlock on the opponent. The Schnabel’s use a High and Low hit to down and pin the opponent. They were able to get in the move on Waldo but before Hans could pin Waldo, Fritz Von Erich hit Hans with a Foreign Object. As Fritz Von Erich fought with Fritz Schnabel OOR, Waldo used a Prussian Slide (Bulldog) on the dazed Hans for the Pin. 12:13

6. Wee Willie Davis; Hidden Brass Nucks Pin over Count Billy Varga. The Count did a brilliant promo with Dennis James before the match giving him the edge in points but Wee Willie, who weighs in at 280 lbs, had a few tricks up his sleeve. Varga who has changed his attitude and now wrestles as a fan favorite used a Torpedo Launch to get Davis down. Wee Willie had some Hidden Brass Nucks and used them to smash the Count in the chops. Davis also added a Vicious Eye Rake on the KO’d Varga. 8:04

Dennis James on the air; “I can’t say I liked Wee Willie’s tactics tonight but I enjoy his movies. Bowery Bombshell with the Bowery Boys and the latest Abbot & Costello film are a lot of fun.”

7. Antonio Rocca and Clawman Ike Eakins; No Contest – Too Much Blood. This match belonged to Rocca who avoided Clawman’s Sharp Object before the match. In fact Rocca reversed it and Eakins had a good size cut above his eye. Rocca used repeated slams to the post that only opened the gash more. Antonio, nicknamed “Argentina” was born in Italy but brought up in Argentina thus the name. Rocca downed Clawman with dropkicks and had Eakins pinned but the match was called. In spite of the blood the fans booed Bert Ruby but the decision was understandable. 9:22

St. Nicholas Arena, NYC Att: 3,846



Commentators; Dennis James & Chris Schenkel
Referees; Ossie Timmons & Tuffy Truesdale
Ring; Normandie Drake Interviews; Dennis James

1. Cowboy Pat Fraley and Stan Mysalak; Double DQ. Mysalak had a Hidden Foreign Object that he tried to use on Cowboy Pat but the move got reversed. The situation became confusing and Referee Ossie Timmons was hit with the object. The wrestlers took the action OOR and were battling into the 4th Row when Timmons recovered to call for a Double DQ not knowing the culprit. 4:16

2. Angelo Cistodi, “The Boston Massacre” pinned Harry Joyce. Cistodi controlled the match brwling his way to a win. He did show a few legitimate moves; A Sledgehammer and a Falling Ax Handle but the pin was made with Angelo’s feet pressed against the corner post. 3:08
3. Midget’s Match – Irish Jackie; Shillelagh Smash (Running Corner Smash) Pin over Beau Brummel. Brummel got frustrated and tried to hit Irish Jackie with a Walking Stick. Jackie responded with a Double Knee Thrust and then caught Brummel in the corner with the Shillelagh Smash. Once again the midgets provided a quick moving crowd pleasing match. 6:29

Chris Schenkel; “Ladies and Gentlemen; At this time I would like to introduce boxer Tiberio Mitri who is preparing for his middle weight title quest on July 12th.” Some applause from the fans as Tiberio raised his hand. Schenkel continues; “ Now I would like to introduce the middleweight champion of the world Jake LaMotta.” Hugh ovation for Jake as he raised his hand.

4. Women’s Match – Princess Tona Tomah pinned Ruth Boatcallie. The Princess did her usual entrance with Screeching War Cries. The fans are beginning to enjoy Tona’s antics but some younger fans are intimidated. Tona immediately chased Ring Announcer Normandie Drake from the ring. Tona had a Hidden Foreign Obect, as usual, and used it to clip Ruth in the Jaw. After falling to the canvas Ruth was at the mercy of Tona who continuously beat Ruth’s head to the mat and got the pin. 7:22

5. The Masked Marvel; Falling Knee Krunch Pin over Bob “Legs” Langevin. The Marvel was able to avoid Langevin’s Dreaded Leg Scissors and caught Bob with a Spin Kick as Langevin came off the Ropes. The Knee Krunch was the finishisher. 6:43

6. The Purple Hearts (Gino and Tony Vagone) beat the Vigilantes (Dirt Dick Raines and Terrible Lou Plummer). This match was decided on the UNUSUAL RESULT CHART. The Vigilantes who are probably the dirtiest of the heel teams were up against two of the guys who are known for breaking all the rules. The match offered all the rulebreaking possible and was a tough contest for Referee Tuffy Truesdale. Both teams used Kicking, Biting, Eye Rakes and Rope Burns with The Vigilants finally gaining the advantage. During a distraction Terrible Lou smashed a Chair over Tony’s head. Tony crashed to the canvas and Raines covered for the pin. Referee Truesdale who knew that Lou had broken the rules but failed to see it was warning Terrible Lou. Gino Vagone ran in the ring and slammed Raines to the back of his head. Gino turned the wrestlers over just as Referee Truesdale turned to see the action. The Purple Hearts won. 15:48

7. Karl Gotch; German Suplex Pin over Iron Mike DiBiase. Goth gained the advantage before the match when Iron Mike was being interviewed by Dennis James. Goth interrupted the interview and smashed Mike with a Flood Lamp. Mike chose to compete in the match in spite of an injury. Iron Mike was able to gain a near pin with a Flying Missile Shot but was unable to hook in his Light’s Out Figure Four Leglock. Gotch retaliated with a Vicious Double Rope Burn and a Thumbscrew to the Throat. The German Suplex was the finisher. 10:14

NWA Wrestling (1948-1956) on WABD-TV DuMont
Sunnyside Garden Arena – Queens, NY Att: 1,938



Commentators; Dennis James & Bill Malone
Referees; Bert Ruby & Tuffy Truesdale
Ring; Lizz Worthington Interviews; Dennis James

1. Chief Indo (Indio) Cherokee with Princess Bonita; War Dance Knee Lift Pin over Frank Schofro. Princess Bonita got into the action immediately after Chief Ino attacked Schofro during the introductions. After initially tripping Schofro Bonita used her Loaded Tom-Tom for a side smash and continually flashed a Knife for intimidation. Meanwhile Cherokee used Kicks to the Midsection and Eye Rakes on the distracted Frank. Referee Bert Ruby was watching Bonita as much as he could but she is a master of deception. Princess Bonita was able to throw some War Dance Dust to Schofro’s eyes before The Chief finished the match with the War dance Knee Lift. 3:39

2. Spaceman Frank Hickey beat Tony Costenza. Tony gained an advantage before the match by interrupting Spaceman’s interview with Dennis James. Costenza slammed a Trash Can to Spaceman’s back. This gave Tony the point advantage for the match. During OOR action in the match Hickey, from the planet “Mongo”, was able to slam Tony’s forehead to the Gong Bell several times. The fans were able to count along with the “Bongs”. Unfortunately for Tony it opened a wide gash on his forehead. Back in the ring Hickey performed a Space Shot Corner Splash before attempting to pin the bloody Costenza. The wise Tuffy Truesdale saw enough and called for the end to the match awarding Spaceman the win. 4:41

3. The Mount Vernon Mauler – Lou Albano; Running Sicilian Slam Pin over Rocky Hessel. Rocky was booed by many of the fans who favor Lou in spite of his attitude change. Lou who wrestled as Leaping Lou Albano was a house favorite and then had an attitude change and a new name as The Mauler. The fans still respond favorably to him. Rocky came very close to a pin after he performed an unexpected Turnbuckle Thrust. In fact Bill Malone announced a pin but had to resend when Dennis James reported that the match had continued. After a Diving Knee Smash dazed Rocky, Lou finished the match with The Sicilian Slam. 5:25

4. Mario DeSouza won by DQ over Dirty Don Evans. Mario received a big ovation especially from a section of Portuguese fans who came out to cheer one of their favorites. They cheered again when Mario protected Lizz Worthington from Dirty Don who felt the need to degrade her. DeSouza gladly added the points on his total and kept Evans from gaining points. DeSouza used speedy barefoot dropkicks that frustrated Don. Don performed a Clothesline Whip and tried to smash Mario in the Throat as he sprung back. Dirty Don was warned by Referee Tuffy Truesdale. Don didn’t like the warning nor the blindside dropkick from DeSouza. Dirty Don jumped to his feet and pushed Referee Truesdale who immediately called for the bell. 7:21

5. Ivan Rasputin; Skull Smasher Pin over Mighty Atlas. Rasputin evened the odds by bailing from the ring where he was in his element. Anything not nailed down was used as a weapon. The wrestlers had to get back in the ring to avoid a count-out but Rasputin made sure he brought in a weapon; a broken coffee cup. It was had enough to keep hidden from Referee Bert Ruby but the Siberian couldn’t keep it from Atlas. Atlas not only took the cup he caught Rasputin in a Altlas Lock (Full Nelson). Referee Ruby was about to call for the submission but saw the broken cup dangling from Atlas’ index finger. Ruby made Atlas break the hold. As Ruby was taking to Atlas and warning him, Rasputin blindsided with a Skull Smasher and then got the 3 count. 11:13

6. Sonny Myers and Wladyslaw Iron Talun with Stanislaus Zbyszko; Double Count-Out. This was the ultimate good vs evil billing for a match. As expected Myers was able to slow down Talun with dazzling dropkicks. Iron Talun was trying to slow Sonny so that he (Talun) could hit him with the light’s out Polish Hammer. The match went OOR where Zbyszko got into the action. Myers held his own in spite of being choked out by Zbyszko’s use of TV Cords and Talun smashing a Trash Can over Myer’s back. Sonny finally dropkicked both Iron Talun and Zbyszko on the floor in front of the broadcast table. As Sonny tried to get back in the ring, Talun grabbed his ankle and held him back. Both wrestlers were counted out. 13:09

Commentators; Bill Malone & Morris Siegal
Referees; Al “Bunny” Dunlop & Jack Sharley
Ring; Irma Peterson Interviews; Jane Stacy

1. Seelie Samara; Falling Facebuster Pin over Ken Tiger Rasker. Tasker attacked Seelie during the introductions and got thrown through the ropes to the floor for his effort. After limping back into the ring he attempted a Running Skullcrusher and was thrown from the ring again. He slowly reentered the ring only to be greeted with a Cranium Cracker and then the Falling Facebuster for the pin. 3:53

2. Johnny Gabor won by DQ over Jim “Goon” Henry. As The Goon, who was being booed, was walking down the aisle a fan dumped a beverage over his head. The Goon got angry and tore up the fan’s program leading to more boos and some cups being thrown. It also added points to The Goon’s total. During the action that was controlled by Gabor, The goon was hit with a Diving Knee Smash that had him bailing from the ring. The Goon found a 2 x 4 under the ring and tried to enter with it. Referee Jack Sharkey called for the DQ. The Goon showed Sharkey a fist but the ex-World Boxing Champion a showed The Goon a fist back indicating that any fist thrown would be a bad idea. 4:47

3. Midget Match – Sonny Boy Cassidy; Brainbuster Pin over Andy Handy. Cassidy used a Top Rope Rump Buster that dazed Andy who later complained to Referee Bunny Dunlop that Cassidy was using a Foreign Object to enhance the bump. Andy handy got angry a Referee Bunny and kicked him in the shins and was going to bite him when Sonny Boy ran over and performed a Brainbuster. Referee Dunlop was going to DQ Andy but chose to count 3 on the pin giving Cassidy the victory. 7:33

4. Women’s Match – Cora Combs, The Lady Satan; Guillotine Leg Drop Pin over Adela Antone. The boo birds were after Cora giving her a big round of boos and raspberries. Adela got the upper hand in the beginning of the match and was able to hold her own as the action went back and forth. After Adela hit Cora with a Flying Forearm it looked like Lady satan would get pinned. Cora retaliated with a Eye Rake then a Neckbreaker. The Guillotine Leg Drop finished the match with Cora pinning Adela. 8:41

5. Sky Hi Lee and The American Apollo Bobby Bruns; Double Count-Out. Bruns used Dropkicks and Spin Kicks while Sky Hi resorted to Kicks in the Stomach and Groin area. Lee who is close to 325 lbs and 6’ 8” towed over the 225 lb Bruns but The American Apollo was able to offset size and strength with speed. The match eventually went OOR and Sky Hi scrambled to find weapons to use. As he picked up a Trash Can, Bobby used a DDT to the floor that KO’d Lee. Referee Bunny Dunlop’s count reached 10 and both wrestlers were Counted-Out. 9:24

6. The Christy’s (Vic and Ted) beat The Golden Greeks (John and Chris Tolos). The hated Greeks lived up to their nasty attitude image when they chased Irma Peterson from the ring. This gave The Golden Greeks points on their total but really brought out the boo birds that were now yelling nasties. This was another very even match with the action going back and forth. Several pin attempts were made but broken up by the wrestler’s teammate. John Tolos reached in the ring to smash a metal Clipboard to Ted Christy’s head but missed and hit Chris. Ted picked up the dazed Chris and performed an Airplane Spin. Vic followed with a Twisting Body Scissors Head Smash to the canvas for the Pin. 16:00

7. NWA Atlantic Title - Wladek Killer Kowalski; Stomach Claw Submission over Yukon Eric. Eric interrupted a promotional interview that Kowalski was having with reporter Jane Stacy. Killer was angry and carried it to the ring after he found that Yukon was receiving extra points on his total. Kowalski claimed that only the commissioner could award points and not the Referees. During the action Yukon was able to get a Running face Smash on Killer but didn’t get the pin when Referee Bunny Dunlop was distracted by John Tolos who came down to complain about the previous match. Tolos remained at ringside arguing until Jack Sharkey came down to break it up and allow Dunlop to referee the match. By this time Kowalski had enetered the ring with a 2 x 4 and smashed it to Yukon’s head. A big Gash was opened as Eric crashed to the canvas. Kowalski hooked in the Stomach Claw as Referee Dunlop turned to see the action. Dunlop called the match because Yukon was KO’s and could not submit. Wladek Killer Kowalski is the NEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEWWWWWWWWWW NWA Atlantic Champion. 13:26

Rooster Brand Coffee & Ace Garage Services presents;
NWA Wrestling (1948-1956)
Chicago Stadium – Chicago, IL Att: 16,346



Commentators; Jack Brickhouse & Russ Davis
Referees; Ted Thomas & Jack Singer
Ring; Sally Forth Interviews; Brenda Starr

1. Oyama Kato with Mr. Sugi; pinned Frank Altman. Altman, as usual, had a few tricks up his sleeve but nowhere near enough to match Oyama in this heel vs heel match. Mr. Sugi made sue he got into the action by Throwing salt to the eyes of Frank while Kato had applied a Nerve hold to the neck of Altman. Oyama hit Frank in the head with a Bottle of Saki while Mr. Sugi distracted Referee Ted Thomas. Altman crashed to the canvas and was pinned. 3:08

2. Houston Harris and Big Jack Wilson; Time Limit Draw. Wilson gained points on his total after breaking a fan’s sign in anger. Wilson used his rough moves to try and control the match; Kick to the Groin and Double Rope Burn but he was up against an opponent that could match his size and use of moves to control a match. Several fans who have witnessed matches in the Detroit area noticed that Harris has been using the name Bobo Brazil when he wrestles in Michigan. Harris used a Corner Slash and a Coco Headbutt that would have gotten the pin but time ran out mainly because Wilson bailed from the ring time and again. 10:00

3. Midget’s Match – Little Beaver and Ivan the Terrible; Double Count-Out. Ivan tried to end the match quickly by Swinging a Chain at Little Beaver. The chain missed and Beaver responded with a Diving Tackle. Beaver was able to hit Ivan with a High Flying Body Smash and would have had a pin but Referee Ted Thomas’ view was blocked. Both wrestlers tried a Rump Bump and Thomas got caught between them and he took a pretty good smash. While Thoas was recovering from the squash Beaver and Ivan took the action OOR. They were in the 3rd row fighting when Thomas counted them out. 7:32

4. Women’s Match – China Mira won by DQ over Dot Dotson. China from Havana , Cuba is very popular and received a huge ovation. Dot didn’t react well to the fans appreciation of China and was pointing her thumbs down at her shoulders as to show that she was the “One”. China gained the advantage using speedy Dropkicks that had Dot frustrated. Back in the interview zone, Betty Jo Hawkins and Beverly Lehmer were waiting for an interview. Never ones to pass up an opportunity to show their nastiness Betty Jo and Beverly stormed the ring and along with Dot started beating on China. Referee Jack Singer called for the DQ. Betty Jo and Beverly ran off tp their interview as the crowd booed again and again. 4:51

5. Jackie Nichols won by DQ over Hombre Montana. Nichols was able to hold his own against big Hombre until Montana used a Kick to the Head that dazed Jackie. A Corner Crusher was followed by a Big Slam that Hombre felt was a definite pin. Referee Ted Thomas said that it was a 2 count. Hombre got angry and pushed Thomas down to the canvas. Thomas called for the bell. 7:12

6. Chief Don Eagle; Death Lock Submission over Gorgeous George with Cherie Dupre and Jefferies. Goeorge entered the arena to “Pomp and Circumstance” playing and several attendants spraying Chanel #5 on the Gorgeous One. A young fan near the ring had an autographed picture of Don eagle and George grabbed it and tore it in half. Don Eagle saw the incident and immediately brough another oicture to the youngster. During the match George used any and all illegal moves he could hide. To say that George had any legitimate moves would be stretching it a bit. Don Eagle had the advantage with his scientific style and had George in trouble after a Smashing shoulder Block. Cheri distracted Referee Jack Singer while Jeffries tried to spray some Chanel #5 in Don Eagle’s eyes. Jefferies missed and hit the Gorgeous One. As George lay on the canvas holding his eyes, Don Eagle hooked in the Dreaded Indian Death Lock that was a light’s out submission. 13:47

7. NWA Tag Title – The Buffalo Bombers (Don Curtis and Mark Lewin) beat O’Connor/McClarity (Pat and Roy). This was a very even match with the advantage going back and forth. The Bombers used their Doubleteam ability and deceptiveness to sling Roy McClarity from the ring onto his shoulder. McClarity was injured and would not fully recover in this match. Pat O’Connor carried the load from here on and almost gave his team the belts after a Flying Tackle had Lewin pinned. Unfortunately Curtis was able to break up the attempt before the 3 count. Roy did the best he could in spite of the injury but was caught by a Don Curtis Running jackhammer. Mark Lewin hooked in the Sleeperhold and brought Roy’s head smashing to the canvas. Lewin got the Pin. The Buffalo Bombers are the NEEEEEEEWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW NWA Tag Title Champions. 22:28

Ring; Dale Arden Interviews; Hedda Hopper

1. Gorilla Macias; Corner Splash Pin over Pancho Villa. Macias smashed a Flood Lamp over Pancho’s back prior to the introductions. Pancho who is at a disadvantage to begin simply had no chance of recovery. He troed and actually was able to get a Head Slam of Macias to the post but then walked into a Kick to the Mid-Section and a Falling Elbow. As Pancho tried to get to his feet he balanced with the corner ropes only to be a victim of the Gorilla Splash. 2:53

2. Rowdy Red Roberts won by Count-Out over Mr. Canada Sammy Berg. The popular Sammy heard lots of cheers as he entered the arena. Roberts, who is hated, gave the fans some hand gestures that brought out the boo birds. The match was fairly even until the action went OOR. The match was bound for the UNUSUAL CHART RESULT. Berg used some legitimate moves to anger Roberts so Roberts grabbed a tray of tacos and slammed it to Sammy’s skull. Berg fell in the aisle as Roberts slipped back in the ring. Referee Bill Stack counted Berg out. 5:52

3. Jumping Joe Scarpello; High Flying Dropkick Pin over Frank Fozo. During the entrance Fozo ripped up a kid’s program just for the fun of it. Jumping Joe replace the program and added a signed glossy. This gave Scarpello extra points on his total. Fozo, who at times wrestles in other areas as The Great Melenko, gave Joe all he could handle. After a Double Axe Handle and a Spine Cracker Fozo looked to get a pin but he hotdogged and wasted time. What he got for his trouble was a Top Rope Clothesline and then a Flying Dropkick Pin. 5:37

4. Women’s Match – The Barefoot Contessa Judy Grable; Running Skullcracker Pin over Mars Bennett. Mars, who is called The Trapeze Artist, was able to hook in a Stomach Claw but tried an Illegal Choke and was broken up by Referee Bill Stack. As mars argued the point Judy performed a Spin Kick and then finished the match with the Running Skullcracker. 7:49

5. Cyclone Anaya; Cobra Twist (Abdominal Stretch) Submission over Duke Keomuka. Duke tried to lure Cyclone into a sense of trust with a handshake offer. Anaya, not to be fooled, answered with a Dropkick to the Chops setting the tone for the match. Anaya one of the most popular wrestlers at the Olympic plead the crowd with Dropkicks and a Flying Forearm. Cyclone, a native of Guadalajara, Mexico controlled the match forcing Keomuca into a desperate move; A Flying Head Butt. He crashed Headfirst into the Turnbuckle. Anaya hooked in the Cobra Twist but Referee Wallaby Bob had to call the submission for the KO’d Duke. 10:14

6. The Boot Baron (Baron Leone and Benito Garbini) beat The Brothers (Frank Jares and Jonathan). This match was also back and forth with neither team getting an edge. Brother Jonathan was climbing in the ring after a tag. Baron Leone noticed that Referee Bill Stack had slipped after a small collision. Leone, never one to waste a distraction, kicked Brother Jonathan in a head with a loaded Boot. The dazed Jonathan was the legal man. The Baron then performed a Italian Back Kick adding insult to injury. Brother Frank Jares ran over and used a Morman Mauler DDT on Baron Leone. The damage on Brother Jonathan had been done. Referee Bill Stack saw Benito Garbini pinning Jonathan. What he didn’t see was that Garbini was using the Turnbuckle for Leverage. 17:51

7. NWA Pacific Title – The California Comet Wilbur Snyder; Airplane Spin Pin over The Fashion Plate Freddie Blassie. Blassie tipped over the Press table on his way to the ring. This added points to his total increasing his chance against tough Wilbur Snyder. Blassie resorted to biting and kicking whenever he could. He tried a Clawhold but Snyder was able to break it. Freddie also had a Foreign Object but dropped it probably costing him his best chance. Snyder responded with a Jump Kick to the back of the Head. Blassie was dazed when Wilbur picked him up for the Airplane Spin. The pin came next. Wilbur Snyder is the NEEEEEEEEWWWWWWWWWWWWW NWA Pacific Champion. 16:28

Midway Arena – Chicago, IL Att: 1,872




Commentators; Jack Brickhouse & Vince Lloyd
Referees; Ted Thomas & Buddy Baer
Ring & Interviews; Brenda Starr

1. Q-Ball Jack Rush; Double Ax Handle Pin over Red Kirkpatrick. During the introductions the wrestlers got into a pushing and shoving match. Referee Ted Thomas warded Q-Ball who took offense that Thomas wasn’t warning Kirkpatrick. Red Kirkpatrick, known as the Chiropractic Killer is just as likely to bend the rules. Red was able to hook in a Twisting Arm Bar that had Q-Ball groaning but not submitting. He was able to reach the ropes to break the hold that had Jack Brickhouse explaining to the newer TV fans that grabbing the ropes was a save and the hold must be broken. Q-Ball responded with a Kick to the Groin area and then finished the match with a Double Ax Handle. 4:25

2. Sgt. Fritz Von Schacht pinned Soldier Barry. The fans hissed and booed Sgt. Fritz who is from Milwaukee but gained fame as a soldier in the German Army so they chanted “Traitor.” Barry used a Falling Head Slam to nearly get a pin by Referee Buddy Baer was out of place to see the legitimate pin. Fritz answered Barry by Smashing a Trash Can over his back during OOR action. After reentering the ring Von Schacht took advantage of the weakened Soldier by Throat Slamming him on the Ropes. A Wicked Kick to the Stomach was too much for Barry as The Traitor pinned him. 5:06

3. Women’s Tag Team – Belle & Nell (Belle Drummund & Verdie Nell Stewart) beat Betty Jo & Beverly (Betty Jo Hawkins and Beverly Lehmer). This was a match of Terrific Teamwork vs Cheating and more Cheating. Betty Jo and Beverly used all of what was in their tough arsenal; Kicks to the Face, Pounding Head to the Mat and Breaking up Pins several times. In the end it was the teamwork of Belle and Nell that won out with Nell pinning Beverly. Belle threw Betty Jo from the ring when she tried to interfere. Belle then his Beverly with a Spin Kick, tagged to Nell who performed a Bamma Slamma (Clothesline that got the pin. 13:45

4. Frank “Crooner” Townsend won by DQ over Hans Hermann. The Crooner, also called the Singing Wrestler, entertained the fans with a rendition of “Cold Cold Heart” and he got a nice ovation. Hans didn’r appreciate the attention that the Crooner was getting and he pulled out a Sharp Objexct as trhe match began. One lady screamed; “He wants to cut The Crooner’s vocal cords.” Several legitimate moves took place before Hans once again revealed the Sharp Object. This time Referee Buddy Baer saw the Object and caked the match awarding it to Townsend. Hans Hermann got angry and pushed Baer trying to get to the Crooner. Baer wasted no time in slugging Hans who fell to the canvas KO’d. The fans were on their feet cheering. 6:46

5. Dick Afflis who is now called Bruiser won by Count-Out over Bulldog Lee Hennig. This was a battle of the rookie Bruiser Afflis vs the wily veteran Hennig. The match eventually went OOR where Hennig performed a Facebuster on Bruiser in the aisle. Bruiser countered with a Diving Knee causing Henning to hit his head and daze him. Bruiser performed an Atomic Drop and slipped back in the ring. Bulldog failed to make the count. One section in the audience was chanting “Bears, Bears” referring to Afflis having played for the Green Bay Packers. The section still cheered for Bruiser during the match. 9:09

6. Dave Armstrong won by DQ over The Sheik with Mr. Kleen. The Sheik seemed to have fun sxcaring some youngsters on the way to the ring and he even tore up a several programs. Armstrong a newcomer from the UK, took the microphone and told fans that they would all get another program and he would autograph it once he was done with The Sheik. Armstrong was awarded extra points on his total. Mr. Kleen protested the extra points claiming that the Sheik earned points by tearing up the crummy program. The match wasn’t going as The Sheik wanted. Armstrong used Dropkicks and Flying Presses to keep an advantage. The Sheik finally pulled out a Pencil that he wanted to use to stab Armstrong. Before he had chance to stab Dave, Mr. Kleen threw a Fireball. Referee Buddy Baer, who earned his money today, saw the infraction and called the match. 13:26

Commentators; Dennis James & Morris Siegal
Referees; Andy DePaul & Earl Millihan
Ring; Tillie Jones Interviews; Bill Malone

1. Krusher Al Korman won by Count-Out over Tiger Fred Atkins. Both wrestlers came close to pins several times with Korman using a Falling Knee to the Throat for his best chance while Atkins had a pin with the Underhook DDT but Referee Andy DePaul totally missed this one. The match eventually went OOR where Krusher usually has the advantage. In fact Krusher wasted no time in grabbing a Flood Lamp and crashing it over Atkin’s back. Korman ws able to make it back to the ring but Fred wasn’t quite as lucky. 3:25

2. Bobby Manganoff; Flying Wedge Pin over Mr. XX. Manganoff was able to knock away a Foreign Object that Mr. XX had hidden in his mask. That eliminated the best move that Mr. XX had in his limited arsenal. Bobby hit Mr. XX with a Flying Missile and then a Flying Wedge for the pin. 4:54

3. Mitsu Arakawa the Tokyo Terror with Kinju Shibuya; Pearl Harbor (Top Rope Knee Drop) Pin over Whitey Whittler. Whittler had Mitsu in trouble and after a Bridge Suplex Whitey would have had a pin but Kinju was able to break it up. Kinju, who is Mitsu’s partner on the Tokyo Terror Team took advantage of Referee Andy DePaul’s warning Mitsu about illegal moves, performed a Spinning Kick to Whitey. Mitsu climbed th ropes and finished the match with a Pearl Harbor. 5:06

4. NWA Women’s Title – Penny Banner with Glady’s “Kill Um” Gillem; Sunset Flip Pin over Jonnie Mae Young with Violet Viann. Jonnie Mae got a big ovation leaving Penny to wave her fist at the crowd. The match was very even with both corner women having chancs to interfere and save their wrestler. Penny was on the canvas so Penny climed the ropes for an intended Flying Elbow Drop. Glady’s ran over and shook the ropes. Jonnie Mae fell crashing to the canvas. Penny hit Violet Viann with a Dropkick as Violet ran in the ring in to save Jonnie Mae. Glady’s pulled Violet from the ring as penny used a sunset Flip Pin. Penny Banner is the NEEEEEEEEWWWWWWWW NWA Women’s Champion. 9:42

5. Mick McManus and Mr. “TV” Jackie Pallo; Double Count-Out. McManus called the Dulwich Destroyer and Pallo will break every rule possible simply to hurt the other. Mick hate Jackie and vice versa. Their feud was not settled in England so they will try to solve their problems in the U.S. That seems unlikely. The match actually started on the entrance ramp but made its way to the ring. The match in the ring was somewhat scientific which was a surprise. EWveentally the action returned OOR. McManus had his head slip on a Gong Bell Smash. He answered the smash with a Chair to the Head of Pallo. Pallo was KO’d and McManus wandering with blood flowing in his eyes when Referee Andy DePaul called the match. He should have called it much earlier. 8:39

6. The Whitehall Lords (Athol Layton and James Blears) with Capt. Leslie Holmes beat The Riot Squad (Rudy and Emile Dusek) with Joe and Ernie. The Riot Squad used Dirty Doubleteaming to try and gain an advantage. Meanwhile their brothers were constantly interfering. The Lords who are very good at Doubleteaming and almost as good at playing dirty countered to keep the match even. It was confusing to say the least. The match ended with everyone in the ring. Lord Layton used a Super Kick and Lord Blears used a KO Punch for the finish. The problem was that Ernie got pinned. He wasn’t even one of the wrestlers. Referee Earl Millihan stood by his decision and awarded the match to The Whitehall Lords. The Dusek’s protested calling Millihan a paid skunk. 16:09

7. Big Thunder Gene Kiniski pinned handsome Johnny Valentine. This was a very even match with slight advantages going back and forth. Johnny finally had the chance for a pin after he performed a Vertical Suplex but Kiniski had time to get his Foot on the Ropes. Valentine found a dropped Foreign Object and went by the ropes and dropped it to the floor. Kiniski ran over and pulled him down from behind. Kiniski had his Feet on the Ropes for Leverage while holding a handful of tights. Big Thunder got the pin. 13:13

8. Edouard Carpentier The Flying Frenchman won by DQ over Don Leo Jonathan The Morman Giant. Carpentier confused Jonathan with Dropkicks and Flying Head Scissors. Unable to catch him for a Backbeaker or his Dreaded Full Nelson, Jonathan resorted to retrieving a Trash Can yelling; “I’ll put you into this as he re-entered the ring. Referee Earl Millihan called for the DQ. 14:26

2. Farmer Don Martin (Marlin) with his pet pig “Oink”; Mule Kick Pin over Strangler Bob Wagner. Wagner used Eye Burns on the Ropes to blind Farmer Don and try to gain the advantage but Matin was up to the Strangler’s dirty moves. Wagner finally resorted to Illegal Chokes but was warned several times. Farmer caught Wagner from behind and performed a Spinal Crack. Martin followed with a Mule Kick and got the pin. (Matin is Farmer Don’s name when wrestling nationally. He uses his real name Marlin when wrestling in Tennessee and Alabama.) 5:04

3. Killer Joe Christy won because of Too Much Blood over Herb Larson. Herb got in a few moves that had Joe reeling; Running Forearm Smashes being the most effective.

The blood flowed out of the wound and soon covered Herb’s face. Referee Jerry Wagner called the match. 4:45

It was a Time Limit Draw. 10:00

5. Yvon “The Lion” Robert; Arm Trap Headscissors Pin over Gypsy Chief Chewaki. Chewaki who always has a bad attitude ran Ring Announcer Skeezix Wallet out of the ring.

(Chief Chewaki used a Head Scissiors and then rubs Sneezing Powder to the opponent’s nose. It causes havoc. The Lion Robert (Pronounced Ro-Bay) performed several Dropkicks and then finished Chewaki with the Headscissiors Pin. Chewaki, Lenny Montana, went on to a film career playing mainly heavies in gangster films. His most famous role was as Luca Brasi in The Godfather). 8:53

6. The Stanlee’s (Steve and Gene) won by DQ over Canada’s Great Athletes (Big Mike and Ben Sharp). The Sharps interrupted an interview with The Stanlee’s by Smilin’ Jack. Steve and Gene were hit with a chair and a Floodlamp. Although the match was in question The Stanlee’s agreed that they would take out their anger in the ring tonight. Steve and Gene, who is called Mr. America, are very popular with the fans and were encouraged the the fans cheering. Ben and Mike Sharp, having done the damage, worked well together but when Gene caught Ben in a Full Nelson it looked like curtains. Mike Sharp entered the ring with another Flood Lamp and was immediately DQ’d by Referee Abe Coleman. Steve Stanlee grabbed the Floodlamp and used it for payback on Big Mike’s Back. Referee Abe Coleman warned the Stanlee’s about further violence. Steve and Gene left the ring. 18:12

The Dusek’s Riot Squad is setting a new record for DQ’s. Will a suspension follow? 4:27

3. Lord Leslie Carlton with The Swami; Big Ben Gong (Headlock Bulldog) Pin over Larry Kasabonski . Lord Leslie had a great promotional interview. Though he is not liked he knows how to promote.
