"Cowboy" Bill Watts' UWF Results (Circa Late 80's) - Myriad, Oklahoma City, OK. Att: 2,943.
Announcers: Jim Ross & Magnum T.A.
Ring Announcer: "Jolting" Joe Bryan
Referees: Ron West, Alfred Neely & Jerry Usher
1.”The Cuban Assassin” David “Fidel” Sierra (w “Cuban Hitman” Gustavo Mendoza) over Johnny West in our opening contest at 4:58. This match was completely dominated by Sierra from start to finish, however the unexpected appearance of Steve Cox at ringside made for some interesting developments. It did not take long for Mendoza, who was defeated by Cox last week in Shreveport, to get into a confrontation with the native from Tulsa, Oklahoma OOR. The Cuban Assassin became distracted by the skirmish on the floor allowing West to catch him in a Surprise Roll Up. The near fall seemed to provide Sierra with the wake-up call that he needed. The Cuban Assassin put West away with a High Knee Smash to the chest off the ropes moments later. Sierra then bailed from the ring to help Mendoza put a double team beat down on Cox until Shane Douglas raced in from the back to make the save.
2. Bobby Fulton of the Fantastics beat Mike Boyette in singles competition. The colorful Boyette did not take kindly to a fan’s sign that poked fun at his checkered win-loss record here in the UWF and tore it up during his ring entrance. While Mike racked up some heel points for his actions, they were not nearly enough to propel him to victory. Bobby scored the winning three count with a Diving Cross Body Press from the top rope at 3:58.
3. Art Crews over “UWF Rookie of the Year” Shane Douglas in controversial fashion at 8:34. The feud between Crews and “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan escalated a notch this evening, but it came at Shane Douglas’ expense. Duggan, who had joined the announcers’ table to provide guest commentary for the bout, got into a shouting match with his antagonist during the action. Hacksaw is still looking for revenge after Crews cost him a title match against UWF Heavyweight Champion Terry “Bam Bam” Gordy several weeks ago. Duggan threw off his headset and raced into the ring with his trusty 2 x 4 to administer some payback. Referee Jerry Usher immediately called for the bell and DQ’d Douglas for Hacksaw’s interference in the match.
4. Nothing was settled this evening in the bitter tag team rivalry pitting Brett Sawyer & “Gorgeous” Gary Young against their adversaries the Lightning Express (Brad Armstrong & Tim Hoerner). Young and Sawyer became increasingly frustrated by their opponents speed and agility; so much so that Gorgeous Gary brought a folding chair into the ring with bad intentions. Fortunately, Referee Ron West wrested it from his grasp and gave it to an attendant before anyone got hurt. The two teams eventually battled their way into the Myriad’s Food Court and were both counted out by West at 14:27.
5. Savannah Jack defeated Devastation Incorporated’s Super Ninja (w/ General Skandor Akbar) at 5:33. The Ninja caught his opponent with a Double Axe Handle to the back while Savannah was climbing through the ropes for Joe Bryan’s match introductions. The sneak attack gave him the early advantage until a missed corner charge abruptly swung the momentum in Jack’s favor. Sensing trouble, Skandor Akbar tried to throw a handful of ceremonial salt into Savannah’s eyes, but ended up blinding his own man with it instead. The Ninja stumbled right into a Small Package for the 1-2-3.
6. Sting over UWF Television Champion “Hot Stuff” Eddie Gilbert via DQ at 11:21. Gilbert was escorted to the ring by fellow First Family of Professional Wrestling members Terry Taylor, Rick Steiner and “First Lady” Missy Hyatt, but his entourage was sent back to the dressing room by Referee Jerry Usher immediately following the match introductions. Having to defend his title all by his lonesome, Gilbert appeared to be very apprehensive and was reluctant to lock up with the Stinger. Hot Stuff spent the first five minutes of this match cowering behind Jerry Usher and bolting from the ring at the first sign of trouble. Once the action finally got under way, the challenger took the fight to Gilbert. The title was in serious jeopardy of changing hands once Hot Stuff became trapped in Sting’s Scorpion Deathlock. Gilbert was on the verge of tapping out when “Mr. Superb” Steve Doll raced into the ring wearing street clothes and caught Sting flush on the jaw with a Superkick to break up the submission hold. Jerry Usher wasted no time in calling for the bell and disqualifying the champion. Doll has been auditioning recently for membership into the First Family and may have sealed the deal by coming to Gilbert’s rescue tonight. Hot Stuff didn’t stick around long enough to even thank Mr. Superb for his assistance. Eddie snatched his TV Title Belt off the timekeeper’s table and fled to the safety of the back. Eddie Gilbert retains the UWF Television Championship.
7. Devastation Incorporated’s Big Bubba Rogers (w/ General Skandor Akbar) defeated “Dr. Death” Steve Williams in tonight’s Main Event at 13:58. Williams disclosed to Jim Ross in a pre-match interview that he intended to wrestle a scientific match, but soon found himself drawn into a slugfest with Big Bubba. Dr. Death proved that he can more than hold his own when it comes to brawling. The fans were on their feet when Williams hoisted Rogers up for his patented Oklahoma Stampede (Running Powerslam) finisher, however the shady Skandor Akbar reached into the ring and tripped Dr. Death. Big Bubba landed on top of his foe and was able to score the tainted pinfall with a handful of tights.

Referee: Tommy Gilbert, Carl Fergie & Tony Torres
1. Davey Haskins topped “Broadway” Joe Malcolm in our opening contest at 7:08. Like another “Broadway Joe” from New York that we’re all familiar with, Malcolm boldly predicted victory this evening in a pre-match promo with Jim Ross despite being the underdog. Alas, it was not to be. Broadway Joe was arrogantly strutting and playing to the crowd when he was abruptly rolled up from behind by Haskins for the pinfall.
2. The First Family of Professional Wrestling’s Terry Taylor (w/ UWF TV Champion “Hot Stuff” Eddie Gilbert & “First Lady” Missy Hyatt) beat “Jumping” Joe Savoldi at 7:59. Savoldi immediately got under Eddie Gilbert’s skin when he received several hugs and kisses from the ladies as he made his way down to the ring for the match introductions. Gilbert, who hails from “Every Girl’s Dream”, was clearly jealous and agitated by the warm reception. Hot Stuff waited for Missy Hyatt to distract Referee Carl Fergie before throwing a handful of powder into Jumping Joe’s face. Savoldi blindly stumbled right into Taylor’s Flying Fivearm Finisher for the three count.
3. Devastation Incorporated’s Eli the Eliminator (w/ General Skandor Akbar) defeated Sam Houston at 13:24. Eli literally got a hand from his devious manager at the most crucial moment of the match. Houston was about to deliver his patented Bulldog Finisher from out of the corner when Akbar suddenly reached in and tripped him. Houston crashed face-first to the mat and was cradled by Eli with a handful of tights for the 1-2-3.
4. Sting over “Mr. Superb” Steve Doll (w/ Missy Hyatt) at 9:49. Lest we forget, it was Steve Doll who thwarted Sting’s attempt to win the Television Title from Eddie Gilbert last week in Oklahoma City. Doll saved Hot Stuff from a probable submission by breaking up the Stinger’s Scorpion Deathlock with a Superkick. The interference may have gotten Gilbert disqualified, but it allowed him to retain the TV Championship. Looking to gain admittance into the First Family of Professional Wrestling, Mr. Superb continued his audition this evening. A victory over Sting would certainly boost his chances, but some interference gone awry by Missy Hyatt would cost him dearly in the end. The First Lady inadvertently smashed Doll in the noggin with her loaded purse “The Lady in Waiting” to give Sting the victory.
5. “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan lost to bitter rival Art Crews via disqualification at 12:00. Crews (in full heel mode with bleached blonde hair and a bellicose disposition) drew big time heat in Baton Rouge this evening. Art was pelted with cups and debris and serenaded with a loud chorus of loud boos as he emerged from the back to make his ring entrance. The veteran from Topeka, Kansas further fanned the crowd’s flames by busting Duggan open with a blow from his own 2x4 after Referee Carl Fergie had been spilled to the canvas. The dazed official was just getting back to his feet when Hacksaw, blinded by blood, decked Fergie again with a wild haymaker to draw the DQ.
6. The bout between Lord Humungous and Devastation Incorporated’s Bad Leroy Brown (w/ General Skandor Akbar) resulted in a Double Count Out at 8:56. Some UWF fans are still not buying Humungous’ recent face turn and were indecisive when it came to lending their support for him during the match introductions. The loss of points he sustained by the lukewarm response greatly assisted Brown, as did the interference of General Skandor Akbar. The shady manager is clearly holding a grudge against Humungous after his invitation to join Devastation Incorporated was unceremoniously shunned. Akbar was especially active during this bout and got in several cheap shots with his riding crop; so much so that Humungous finally had enough and bailed from the ring to chase the General to the back. Brown immediately followed after them to come to his manager’s defense. Referee Tony Torres’ ten count went unanswered.
7. The Sheepherders (Butch Miller & Cousin Luke Williams) successfully defended their UWF Tag Team Titles against the former champions the Fantastics (Tommy Rogers & Bobby Fulton) in tonight’s Main Event. This was a battle of bonus points with the challengers rolling big on their Speed Modifier, but the Sheepherders rolling even bigger on their Cheating Modifer. The champions combined for a Double Team Gut Buster on Bobby Fulton behind the official’s back while Referee Tommy Gilbert was busy sending Tommy Rogers back to his corner. Gilbert turned around to find Cousin Luke making the cover and counted the pin at 13:22. To make matters worse, Williams was not even the legal man for his team at the time. Nevertheless, the Sheepherders retain the UWF Tag Team Championship.

Referee: Joel Armstrong, Edward Faulk & Jerry Usher
1. Brickhouse Brown opened the show by pinning the Red Devil at 3:57. Wins have been hard to come by thus far for the masked man during his brief tenure here in the UWF, and victory was once again elusive tonight. A missed knee drop from the top rope proved to be the beginning of the end. The Red Devil was just getting back to his feet when he was met by a Diving Cross Body Press from the turnbuckle by Brickhouse for the three count.
2. Devastation Incorporated’s Super Ninja (w/ General Skandor Akbar) beat Johnny West at 4:16. This contest would have been over much sooner, but the Ninja kept yanking West up after several two counts to inflict additional punishment. Clad in black from head to toe, Akbar’s heel from the Orient stunned his opponent with a Knife Edge Chop to the throat off the ropes before finishing Johnny off with a Thrust Kick to the jaw.
3. “White Lightning” Tim Hoerner over “Cuban Assassin” David “Fidel” Sierra (w/ Gustavo Mendoza) at 7:24. Sierra boosted his points total by ripping up a youngster’s cardboard sign as he made his way down to ringside for Joe Bryan’s match introductions. The Cuban Assassin also received help from Mendoza who interfered frequently on his fellow countryman’s behalf. Ironically enough, the two were conferring in the corner when Hoerner snuck up from behind and caught Sierra in a Bridging Belly to Back Suplex for the pin.
4. Chavo Guerrero pinned Kortsia Korchenko at 7:37. The big Russian was fortunate enough to roll on his Size Modifier, but his massive bulk could not bring him a victory in the end. Korchenko whipped Chavo hard into the corner, but instead of following up immediately on his advantage, the Russian opted to jaw with some fans who were chanting “U.S.A!!” at him. By the time he finally charged into the corner, Guerrero had already vacated the premises. Korchenko crashed hard into the turnbuckle and sustained a Moonsault Body Block from the top rope by Chavo moments later to seal his fate.
5. “Gentleman” Chris Adams (w/ Sting) over “Gorgeous” Gary Young (w/ Brett Sawyer) at 8:15. All heck broke loose in this contest with the respective cornermen getting in on the action. Referee Edward Faulk would have been justified in disqualifying both men for all the outside interference, but exercised a lot of leeway instead to help decide a winner. Adams cashed in on the chaos but catching Gorgeous Gary in the mush with a Superkick to score the winning 1-2-3.
6. Devastation Incorporated’s Big Bubba Rogers (w/ Skandor Akbar) defeated Savannah Jack at 10:27. Savannah racked up some bonus points for cutting a brilliant promo with Jim Ross and Magnum T.A. prior to the bell and carried the good vibe forward into his bout with Rogers. Jack had Big Bubba reeling with a flurry of boxing jabs and Head Butts, but his momentum was abruptly derailed after the devious Akbar reached into the ring and tripped him. Rogers immediately followed up with a crushing Big Splash from the turnbuckle to gain the three count.
7. There was no winner in the tag team Main Event pitting the First Family of Professional Wrestling’s Terry Taylor & UWF Television Champion “Hot Stuff” Eddie Gilbert (w/ “First Lady” Missy Hyatt and “Mr. Superb” Steve Doll) against the Okies (“Dr. Death” Steve Williams and Steve Cox). Never at a loss for words, Gilbert and Taylor spoiled their opponents pre-match chat with Joe Bryan by rudely interrupting the Okies’ interview. Dr. Death and Cox made them pay dearly once the contest finally got underway. The Okies took the fight to their brash opponents and were ahead on points until the action spilled OOR. Still vying for a spot in the First Family, Steve Doll interjected himself into the proceedings by smashing a chair over the back of Steve Cox before being laid out by a Running Clothesline from Dr. Death on the floor. Amidst all the mayhem, Referee Joel Armstrong’s ten count went unanswered. Armstrong called for the bell at 12:12 with both teams being counted out.

1.Devastation Incorporated’s “Wild” Bill Irwin (w/ General Skandor Akbar) opened the show with a victory over Bobby Perez at 7:53. Perez actually offered Wild Bill a handshake just as the bell rang to start the contest. Irwin just stood there with his hands on his hips and a smirk on his face and rhetorically asked the fans, “Is this guy for real ??” before doubling over his adversary with a quick cowboy boot to the midsection. It was all downhill from there for Perez. Irwin took great pleasure in dishing out the punishment and could have pinned his opponent on several occasions had he chosen to. Wild Bill waited until Perez was literally out on his feet before planting him with a Swinging Side Slam for the 1-2-3.
2. Sam Houston vs. Mike Boyette was a “No Contest”. The quirky and unpredictable Boyette jumped Houston in the aisle as the lanky Texan was making his way to the ring for the match introductions. The sneak attack precipitated a wild brawl around ringside in which a trash can, Joe Bryan’s microphone and the timekeeper’s bell all came into play. By the time the smoke cleared, both men were busted open and had to be assisted to the back for medical attention. Since the match never officially started, Referee Carl Fergie ruled it a “No Contest”.
3. The Lightning Express (“White Lightning” Tim Hoerner & Brad Armstrong) emerged victorious over the Cuban Hitmen “Cuban Assasin” David “Fidel” Sierra & Gustavo Mendoza) in tag team action. The Cuban team took exception to some comments that they overheard from Magnum T.A. at the announcers’ table and had words with the commentator throughout the bout. The distraction proved to be costly to Mendoza and Sierra’s points total. To make matters worse. the Lightning Express further bolstered their chances by rolling on their Technical Modifier. In the end, the heels were DQ’d by Referee Tommy Gilbert at 5:15 when Sierra was caught throwing Tim Hoerner over the top rope.
4. The match between “Gentleman” Chris Adams and “Mr. Superb” Steve Doll ended in A Double Disqualification at 4:10. Doll has been auditioning as of late to become a member of the First Family of Wrestling. Mr. Superb was accompanied by UWF TV Champion “Hot Stuff” Eddie Gilbert this evening while Sting camped out in Adams’ corner. Doll struggled mightily in this contest and soon found himself on the receiving end of Adams’ patented Superkick finisher. Eddie Gilbert raced into the ring to break up the subsequent pin attempt but was intercepted by Sting. The two went at it fast and furious prompting Referee Ron West to call for the bell and disqualify both Adams and Doll for the outside interference.
5. “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan topped Art Crews at 8:12. In this latest chapter of one of UWF’s hottest feuds, Hacksaw had to overcome the blatant use of a foreign object by his bitter adversary to come out on top. With the aid of his Cheating Modifier, Crews managed to conceal a small chain beneath a knee pad and land several loaded punches during the match. Thinking that he had Duggan right where he wanted him, Crews turned his back on his battered foe and played to the crowd. By the time he turned back around, he was greeted with a Running Forearm to the head from Hacksaw that put him down for the three count.
6. “Dr. Death” Steve Williams over Devastation Incorporated’s Bad Leroy Brown (w/ General Skandor Akbar) via Disqualification at 10:43. A roll on his Cheating Modifier kept Brown in this match and enabled him to receive ample outside interference from Skandor Akbar along the way. It was just a matter of time, however, until Leroy found himself being hoisted up for Dr. Death’s devastating Oklahoma Stampede finisher. A desperate Brown slugged Referee Tommy Gilbert to draw the DQ before the Running Powerslam could be delivered.
7. Our Main Event featured the UWF Tag Team Champion Sheepherders (Butch Miller & Cousin Luke Williams w/ New Zealand Flag) once again defending their titles against the Fantastics (Bobby Fulton & Tommy Rogers). These two teams have had some classic battles and tonight was no different. Williams and Miller earned themselves bonus points prior to the match by interrupting their challengers’ promo with Jim Ross at ringside. The Fantastics were obviously flustered by the rude intrusion and seemed out of kilter the entire match. The turning point of the match came when Tommy Rogers whipped Butch Miller into his own corner and raced in to attempt a Monkey Flip. Cousin Luke was waiting for him there and caught Rogers in the forehead with a flagpole smash. Referee Ron West, who was preoccupied with sending Bobby Fulton back to his corner, turned around to find Miller making the cover and counted the pin. Your winners at 10:49 and still UWF Tag Team Champions, the Sheepherders !

1. ”Raging Greek” Mike Pappas topped the Red Devil in our opening contest at 4:18. Try as he may to fire up the crowd during his ring entrance, Pappas failed to generate any fan support whatsoever. Despite the loss of points, the Raging Greek persevered thanks in large part to the ineptitude of his masked opponent. Pappas put his foe away with a Missile Drop Kick from the top rope.
2. Kortsia Korchenko overcame some adversity to defeat Rick Gibson at 5:19. Korchenko’s pre-match interview with “Jolting” Joe Bryan was unexpectedly interrupted by “Captain Redneck” Dick Murdoch. Murdoch, who was last seen in the UWF as a heel in Skandor Akbar’s Devastation Incorporated stable some time ago, cemented his new babyface status in Shreveport by waving a Confederate Flag and dazing Korchenko with a well placed Elbow Smash to the noggin before departing to a chorus of loud cheers. Gibson carried the good mojo into the match and had the giant Russian reeling with a pair of Flying Drop Kicks, however he ran into a raised boot on a delayed corner charge and was pinned with a Big Splash moments later.
3. General Skandor Akbar’s newest find the Samoan Swat Team (Fatu & Samu) ran roughshod over Steve Cox & Davey Haskins. Were it not for a brief flurry of offense from Cox, this bout would have been a complete squash. The SST isolated Haskins in the ring with some quick tags and dirty double team maneuvers. A Samoan Drop by Fatu setup Samu’s devastating Diving Head Butt on Davey to give the SST the victory. After the match, Akbar beamed about his new team in an interview with Jim Ross and predicted championship gold for the SST. The General also said that he had an additional surprise that he would unveil later in the program.
4. ”Chief” Jules Strongbow over “Gorgeous" Gary Young at 8:59. Nothing went right for the Gorgeous One tonight. His attempt at a sneak attack before the bell was thwarted when Strongbow caught him with a quick Crescent Kick to the breadbasket. The Chief quickly followed up with a War Dance and a series of Running Knee Lifts. Young used some rule breaking tactics to break the momentum, but his attempt to smash the Chief's head to an exposed corner turnbuckle was reversed. Strongbow put the woozy Young away with a Leaping Tomahawk Chop from the top rope.
5. Chavo Guerrero upset Big Bubba Rogers with a surprise pinfall at 11:22. Guerrero gave up a lot in size to his foe in this contest, but overcame the deficit with his veteran ring savvy. Big Bubba appeared to have the match all but sewn up with a huge Sidewalk Slam off the ropes, but Referee Alfred Neely was caught out of position and slow in getting down to count the subsequent pin attempt. Rogers was furious and lambasted the official allowing Chavo to sneak up from behind and catch him with a School Boy Roll for the win.
6. The First Family of Professional Wrestling’s “Hot Stuff” Eddie Gilbert, who seems to have nine lives when it comes to retaining his coveted UWF Television Title, turned back the challenge of “White Lightning” Tim Horner this evening. Things got off to a rocky start for Eddie when Jules Strongbow interrupted a promo that Hot Stuff was cutting with Jim Ross at ringside prior to the bout. Strongbow appeared to be speaking for many fans in attendance when he said that he was “fed up with Gilbert’s bull”. The champ was visibly flustered by the intrusion and seemed overly distracted throughout his title defense, but cashed in on a distraction from his valet “First Lady” Missy Hyatt to pull out the win. Gilbert ran the challenger head first into the ring post OOR while Missy argued with Referee Joel Armstrong. The infraction would normally constitute means for disqualification, but resulted in Horner being counted out at 7:00. Eddie Gilbert retains the UWF TV Title.
7. Challenger “Ugandan Giant” Kamala (w/ Friday and General Shandor Akbar) defeated the reigning UWF Heavyweight Champ Terry “Bam Bam” Gordy by way of Count Out in tonight’s Main Event at 18:54. Despite being outnumbered at ringside, Gordy carried the fight and came within a whisker of pinning his adversary with a Pile Driver in the closing stages of the contest. The quick thinking Akbar put Kamala’s foot on the bottom rope to break Referee Jerry Usher’s count. While the official may have missed Akbar’s interference, Gordy did not and immediately bailed from the ring to give the devious manager his comeuppance. Enter “the surprise” that Akbar eluded to earlier. Jesse Barr ran in from the back and planted Gordy face-first onto the floor with a Bulldog from behind. The dazed champion could not recover in time to make Usher’s ten count. Nevertheless, Terry Gordy retains the UWF Heavyweight Title. The Champ had some choice words for Akbar’s new man before the program went off the air. “Jesse Barr, watch your back, son !”

Referees: Edward Faulk & Tommy Gilbert
1. ”Mr. Superb” Steve Doll (w/ “UWF Television Champion “Hot Stuff” Eddie Gilbert & “First Lady” Missy Hyatt in his corner) over “Jumping” Joe Savoldi via Count Out in our opening contest at 4:16. Doll has had his sights firmly set upon joining the First Family of Wrestling as of late and was no doubt looking to make a favorable impression upon both Missy and Hot Stuff this evening. Mr. Superb laid out Savoldi with a DDT on the floor while Eddie Gilbert kept Referee Edward Faulk occupied. Jumping Joe could not recover in time to make the official’s subsequent ten count.
2. ”Bulldog” Jesse Barr (w/ General Skandor Akbar) was disqualified in his match with Brickhouse Brown at 4:59. Barr was clearly distracted by the presence of UWF Heavyweight Champion Terry “Bam Bam” Gordy who came down to ringside in street clothes to take in the bout. (One might recall that Barr, who is a newcomer to General Akbar’s Devastation Incorporated stable) cost Bam Bam a count out loss to “The Ugandan Giant” Kamala in last week’s Main Event Title Match at the Hirsch Coliseum.) The Bulldog pointed to Gordy and then tossed Brickhouse over the top rope to draw the DQ from Referee Tommy Gilbert.
3. Art Crews defeated “The Missouri Tiger” Jeff Gaylord at 7:06. Gaylord was exceptionally popular with the fans tonight. It’s difficult to say whether the support was due to a spirited promo that the Missouri Tiger had cut with Jim Ross prior to the bell, or because of the crowd’s hatred for Crews. Whatever the reason, Gaylord’s points total was bolstered, as was Crews’ who rolled big on his Cheating Modifier. Art used a hidden foreign object in his arm pad to stun Gaylord with a Flying Elbow Drop off the 2nd rope and gain the tainted pinfall.
4. The duo of “UWF Rookie of the Year” Shane Douglas & Steve Cox defeated the Cuban Hitmen (David “Fidel” Sierra & Gustavo Mendoza) in tag team action. An errant flagpole shot by Sierra on his own partner was the beginning of the end for the Cuban team. The dazed Mendoza staggered right into Shane’s patented Belly to Belly Suplex finisher for the winning three count at 5:57.
5. “Captain Redneck” Dick Murdoch (w/ Confederate Flag) battled Kortsia Korchenko (w/ Tag Team Partner Vladimir Petrov) to a Double DQ. Although he’s a fan favorite now, Murdoch still bends the rules to his liking when the situation calls for it. Ironically enough, both men rolled on their Cheating Modifiers with neither competitor gaining an advantage in that regard. The end came when Referee Edward Faulk was toppled to the canvas while being distacted by Korchenko’s cornerman Vladimir Petrov. Not knowing who was responsible for the bump, Faulk called for the bell at 6:06 and disqualified both men. UWF Commissioner John Ayers immediately ordered a rematch for next week.
6. The Fantastics (Bobby Fulton & Tommy Rogers) beat the Fabulous Freebirds (Michael P.S. Hayes & Buddy Roberts) in the Main Event at 10:21. Fellow Freebird Terry Gordy came down to ringside to be in Hayes and Roberts’corner for the match. His interference would play a pivotal role in the bout’s outcome. Buddy Roberts, who was given a folding chair to use by Gordy during a ring full of mayhem, had it Drop Kicked into his own face when he charged at Bobby Fulton. Referee Tommy Gilbert was about to throw the contest out when he spotted Fulton covering the KO’d Roberts and counted the pin to give the Fantastics the victory. Michael Hayes protested that he was the legal man for this team at the time, but Gilbert’s decision stood.
