1. "Mr. Electricty" Steve Regal defeated "Beach Boy" Sonny Rogers by submission with his Ft. Lauderdale Leglock (Standing Figure Four Leglock) at 3:39.
2. Ladies Tournament Match. "Sensational" Sherri Martel (w/ "Playboy" Buddy Rose) over Debbie Combs at 7:21. Rose reached into the ring and tripped Combs to set her up for a Martel Splash leading to the three count. Rose was serenaded by chants of "Pillsbury Doughboy" from the crowd. Sherri had to cover the Playboy's ears on several occassions. As we all know, Buddy is very sensitive about his weight.
3. Angelo "King Kong" Mosca (w/ Eddie "The Brain" Creatchman) put away Anthony "Earthquake" Ferris with a Backbreaker across the knee at 4:42. Mosca nearly dropped the rotund Ferris as he struggled to perform the maneuver.
4. The Road Warriors (Hawk & Animal w/ "Precious" Paul Ellering & Wall Street Journal) defeated the Alaskans (Rick Renslow & David Wagner w/ Alaskan War Clubs) at 6:36. Animal pinned Wagner with a Powerslam off the ropes.
5. "Pretty Boy" Doug Somers (w/ "Playboy" Buddy Rose) upset Big Scott Hall at 11:53. With Referee Larry Lisowski knocked down in the action, Rose snuck into the ring and laid out Hall with a chair shot from behind. Somers made the cover as Lisowski crawled over to count the pin. Curt Hennig ran down to ringside to point out the infraction to Lisowski but the decision stood. Rose and Somers were pelted with debris by the fans as they smugly strode back to the dressing room.
6. "Olympian" Brad Rheingans surprised Blackjack Lanza (w/ Eddie "The Brain" Creatchman) with a Small Package at 14:01 as Lanza was attempting to lift him up for a Suplex. The stunned Lanza sat up on his knees and shook his head in disbelief.
7. Thirty minutes was not enough time to decide a winner in the Main Event between old rivals Verne Gagne and Nick Bockwinkel. The two wily veterans wrestled to a highly entertaining time limit draw and received a standing ovation from the appreciative St. Paul wrestling fans.

1. Buck "Rock & Roll" Zumhoffe (w/ blaring boombox) pinned Dennis Stamp with a Reverse Body Drop in the corner at 5:35.
2. Ladies Tournament Match. Desiree Peterson over Madusa Micelli (w/ "Canada's Greatest Athlete" Nick Kiniski) by DQ at 6:48. Kiniski pulled Referee Gary DeRusha out of the ring before he could put the three count on Madusa following a Diving Cross Body Press off the top rope from Desiree Peterson. DeRusha immediately called for the bell.
3. "Sensei" Pat Tanaka (w/ Diamond Dallas Page) and "Z Man" Tom Zenk were both disqualified at 6:23. Page got in several cheap shots prompting Tanaka's rival and former tag team partner Paul "Hard Rock" Diamond to run down to ringside and even the odds for Zenk. A donnybrook ensued with all four men battling in the ring. Referee Scott Ledoux had enough and called the match.
4. "California Kid" Tommy Jammer (w/ Beach Boys' "Surfin' USA" entrance theme) over "Mr. Magnificent" Kevin Kelly (w/ Madusa Micelli) by Count Out at 11:41. With both men battling OOR and Kelly getting the better of the fight, "Mr. Magnificent" tossed Tommy Jammer back inside the ring just as Referee Scott Ledoux's count was reaching ten. Kelly couldn't believe he had cost himself the count out loss.
5. AWA TV Title Match. Champion Mr. Saito (w/ Sheik Adnan El-Kaisee) retained his title against the challenger, "Polish Prince" Steve Olsonoski by DQ at 9:42. Steve O intercepted a foreign object that El-Kaisee was trying to sneak into the ring to Saito. The Sheik immediately pointed out the object in Olsonoski's hand to Referee Gary DeRusha who then signalled for the bell.
6. In a brutal and bloody tag team match, Curt Hennig and Big Scott Hall defeated "Sensational" Sherri Martel's Pretty Playboys ("Playboy" Buddy Rose & "Pretty Boy" Doug Somers) at 13:30. Both Hall and Somers were busted open in this contest. The Pretty Boy's laceration was much worse as Somer's could barely see where he was going. Referee Gary DeRusha stopped the bout due to blood at 13:30.
7. The wildman from Borger, TX, Stan "The Lariat" Hansen (w/ branding iron) and "Crusher" Jerry Blackwell were disqualified in the Main Event at 14:34 after both men pushed Referee Scott Ledoux down to the mat and duked it out in the middle of the ring. Several wrestlers had to run in from the back to separate Hansen and Blackwell.

1. Tony Leone got a gift Count Out victory over "TNT" D.J. Peterson at 6:16. Peterson was baited into a confrontation with "The Living Legend" Larry Zbyszko who was being interviewed by Larry Nelson at ringside. A shoving match ensued OOR until D. J. was laid out by a nunchuck shot from behind by Zbyszko's ninja "Mr. Go". Greg Gagne ran out to make the save and check on Peterson.
2. Ladies Tournament Match. Candi Devine put away Despina Montogas with a Roll Up and a handful of tights at 6:22 after Montogas missed a corner charge and went shoulder-first into the ring post.
3. Jesse "The Body" Ventura defeated Jake "The Milkman" Milliman by submission with his Body Breaker (Over-the-shoulder Backbreaker) at 4:38.
4. The Russians (Yuri Gordyenko & Alexis Smirnoff) over the jobber tandem of Todd Becker & Jim Evans at 4:16. Gordyenko made the pin after the Russians combined for their Double Hot Shot finisher on Becker.
5. Angelo "King Kong" Mosca defeated "Olympian" Brad Rheingans via Count Out at 9:50. Brad was clotheslined over the barricade railing and into the first row of spectators during OOR action. Rheingans gamely tried to get back in the ring but it was not in time to make Referee Marty Miller's ten count.
6. Ray "The Crippler" Stevens (w/ Tag Team partner Nick Bockwinkel) over David Sammartino at 9:42. Stevens, Sammartino and Referee Gary DeRusha were all knocked down in a huge mid-ring collision. Ever the opportunist, Bockwinkel snuck in the ring and laid Stevens' arm across Sammartino's chest. The woozy DeRusha shook out the cobwebs, crawled over and counted the pin.
7. In the Main Event, "The Pillsbury Dough Boy - er - Playboy" Buddy Rose (w/ "Pretty Boy" Doug Somers and "Sensational" Sherri Martel) came up empty in his bid to defeat Curt Hennig (w/ Big Scott Hall). Somers had climbed up on the apron to interfere but Hennig was ready for him and gave the "Pretty Playboys" a mighty Noggin Knocker. Rose staggered around the ring until he was floored by Curt's Missile Drop Kick off the top rope and pinned at 13:10 much to the delight of the fans.

1. "The Mercenary from South Africa" Colonel Debeers finished off "Sodbuster" Kenny Jay with his South African Facebuster at 5:41.
2. Rick Gantner submitted to the goose-stepping Baron Von Raschke's Iron Claw Hold at 4:17.
3. "Top Gun" Ricky Rice surprised Nick Kiniski (w/ Madusa Micelli) with a Reverse Cross Body Press off the top rope at 6:27.
4. Former Los Angeles Ram's lineman Leon "Baby Bull" White over Doug "Pretty Boy" Somers (w/ "Sensational" Sherri Martel & "Playboy" Buddy Rose) by DQ at 8:24. White flattened the Pretty Boy with a Running Powerslam however Buddy Rose ran into the ring to break up the pin count and draw the disqualification.
5. Billy Robinson pinned Boris Zhukov (w/ Sheik Adnan El-Kaisee) after a One Arm Backbreaker at 7:41.
6. "TNT" D.J. Peterson and his partner "High Flyer" Greg Gagne over "Living Legend" Larry Zbyszko and his mysterious Ninja bodyguard "Mr. Go" at 8:54. Gagne pinned Go after Zbyszko inadvertently bashed his own partner in the head with his nunchucks.
7. In the Main Event, crafty Nick Bockwinkel defeated Maurice "Mad Dog" Vachon via Count Out at 15:59. As the action spilled out onto the floor, the dazed Bockwinkel delivered a mule kick between the wickets and rolled back inside as Referee Larry Lisowski issued the ten count on the incapacitated Vachon.
WCW/n.W.o. Monday Nitro Results (Circa Mid to Late 90's) - Convocation Center, Cleveland, OH. Att: 9,626.
Announcers: Tony Schiavone & Bobby "The Brain" Heenan
Ring Announcer: Dave Penzer
Referees: Billy Silverman, Nick Patrick & Charles Robinson
1. Sirens and red flashing lights brought out "Big Poppa Pump" Scott Steiner (w/ Bicep Kiss and Valet Midajah) to face "Ragin' Cajun" Lash Leroux. Steiner grabbed the house mic away from Dave Penzer and shouted. "Holla If You Hear Me !" which drew various responses from the Cleveland crowd. Big Poppa Pump then proceeded to put a clubberin' on Lash, pausing only for a moment to do some push ups in the ring, before clamping on the Steiner Recliner (Camel Clutch) for the submission victory at 4:21.
2. The n.W.o.'s Syxx (X-Pac) defeated young Chavo Guerrero Jr. (w/ Uncle Eddie Guerrero) in a cruiserweight battle at 6:47. Much to his credit, Chavito dictated the action throughout this fast paced contest. In an effort to impress his Uncle Eddie, Chavo attempted a Frog Splash from the top rope but found nothing but canvas when Syxx, who was playing possum, rolled himself out of the way at the last second. The dazed Chavo was just getting back to his feet when he was greeted by a Sit-Out Facebuster from Syxx for the pinfall. Uncle Eddie was seen shaking his head as he returned backstage.
3. David Flair (w/ screaming Goth girlfriend Daffney Unger) looked way overmatched in the ring against Konnan. Commentator Bobby Heenan questioned whether David was ready for the big time yet and for good reason. Konnan strung together a succession of moves including his Rolling Clothesline and 187 (Cradled DDT) before ending things with the Tequila Sunrise (Arm Trap Single Leg Boston Crab Submission) at 4:28. Arriba La Raza !
4. Brian Knobbs bested Meng in a Falls Count Anywhere Hardcore Match at 18:54. This battle ended up in the parking lot of the Convocation Center where Meng was given a Powerslam into an open dumpster. Referee Charles Robinson had the unenviable task of having to climb inside the rusty trash receptacle to count the pin.
5. Six Man Challenge Tag Team Match. Juventud Guerrera and Rey Mysterio Jr. enlisted the help of WCW's Cruiserweight Champion Billy Kidman to take on the boy band 3 Count (Evan Karagias, Shannon Moore & "Sugar" Shane Helms). They may be 'N Sync wannabes, but 3 Count had some ladies on their feet as they performed their single "Girl, You Got What I Want What You Got" prior to the bell. It somehow seemed appropriate that Karagias would accidentally bash his own partner Shannon Moore in the head with one of the band's green dancing circles leading to a Shooting Star Press from Kidman for the 1-2-3.
6. An ominous looking Sting descended from the rafters with his black and white Crow face paint and a matching black trench coat to take on "The Total Package" Lex Luger in the Main Event. The Stinger pointed his trademark baseball bat at Luger drawing a stern warning from Referee Billy Silverman. Luger kept things interesting and nearly succeeded in hoisting his opponent up into the Torture Rack backbreaker finisher, but Sting managed to grab onto the top rope to break the hold. The Total Package was then the recipient of not one but two Stinger Splashes in the corner and finished off with the Scorpion Death Drop (Inverted DDT) for the winning pinfall at 11:45.

Referees: Scott Dickinson, Mickey Jay & Johnny Boone
1. The action was fast and furious in the opening Triple Threat Luchador Contest pitting Silver King against Ciclope and Psychosis. The high-flying Mexican superstars put on quite a show with bodies flying in and out of the ring at every turn. Psychosis scored the pinfall on Silver King with a Guillotine Leg Drop off the top rope at 6:51.
2. "Belfast Bruiser" David "Fit" Finlay defeated Prince Iaukea at 5:06. Finlay gained the upperhand after a brutal corner beatdown on Iaukea and could have probably pinned his opponent following a Forward Roll Slam but opted instead to add a Tombstone Piledriver to seal the three count.
3. Ernest "The Cat" Miller (w/ Red Slippers and a shtick that never grows old) beat Scotty Riggs at 7:43. Miller gave Scotty his usual offer: "By law, I'm gonna give you five seconds to run outta here. But if I turn around and you're still here, then I'm gonna whup you in front of all these stupid people here in Anaheim. And then I'm gonna call my mama." Well, Mr. Riggs decided to stick around and Mr. Riggs got "whupped" for it. Scotty did land his trademark Drop Kick (one of the best in the biz) but it was far from enough to bring him a victory. Miller put him away with the Feliner (Roundhouse Spin Kick) for the 1-2-3.
4. Fresh from the WCW Power Plant training facility, the up and coming team of The Natural Born Thrillers (Mark Jindrak & Sean O'Haire) were in over their heads tonight against Harlem Heat (Booker T & Stevie Ray). "Above Average" Mike Sanders made things interesting with some timely interference on behalf of the Thrillers, but the Heat showed why they are one of the most dominant teams of the 90's. Jindrak was pinned following the Heat Seeker (Stevie Ray Electric Chair Lift & Booker T Missile Drop Kick from the top rope). The time of the fall was 8:07.
5. WCW newcomer Lance Storm over "Iceman" Dean Malenko in a terrific, fast-paced match that saw several near pinfalls. It looked like curtains when Malenko applied his Texas Cloverleaf leg lock, but Storm was somehow able to contort himself so as to grab a handful of tights and reverse the move into his Canadien Maple Leaf single leg Boston Crab. Malenko desperately stretched for the ropes but came up inches short and had to tap out at 11:23.
6. Everything old is new again, or is it ? After all their WWF wars in the 80's, who would have thought we'd see the day when Hulk Hogan would be the heel facing "Rowdy" Roddy Piper as the babyface ? Such was tonight's Main Event. "Hollywood" Hogan, as he is now known since dumping his legions of "Hulkamaniacs" for the n.W.o, clearly had the upper hand over a much slower but every bit as feisty Roddy Piper. To make the deja vu all the more complete, the Disciple (a bearded Ed Leslie/Brutus Beefcake) ran in to break up a Piper Sleeper hold and draw the disqualification on Hogan. Your winner by DQ at 9:35: "Rowdy" Roddy Piper.

1. Showing amazing agility for his size, "The Laughing Man" Hugh Morrus put away Lenny Lane with the No Laughing Matter (Moonsault) at 4:32 in tonight's opening contest.
2. Kaz Hayashi and Ultimo Dragon dazzled the crowd with their martial arts maneuvers and high-flying theatrics. A missed Senton Splash from the top rope proved to be Hayashi's undoing. The dazed Kaz was just getting back to his feet when he was greeted by his opponent's Dragon Sleeper from behind for the submission at 6:08.
3. The fans were into Norman Smiley's new entrance music and pyrotechnics, however the bonus points were not enough to help him pull out a victory over the n.W.o.'s Scott "Flash" Norton. Smiley was flattened by a Uranage Slam off the ropes and finished off with the Flashback (Gutwrench Inverted Shoulderbreaker) at 5:41.
4. Vincent (Mike Jones) days in the n.W.o. may be numbered after Buff Bagwell's loss to Disco Inferno this evening. Bagwell appeared to be in control of this match and well on his way to victory after connecting with his Blockbuster finisher (Diving Neckbreaker off the top rope), but Referee Charles Robinson's attention was diverted to Vincent who was prancing around on the apron and showboating for the fans. As a result, Robinson completely missed the pin attempt which drew the ire of Bagwell. Buff gave the ref a piece of his mind and then turned around right into Disco's Last Dance (Shoulder Jawbreaker Stunner) for the three count at 7:15. Hogan, Nash & Hall will not be pleased with this latest development. (You may recall that it was Vincent's errant Blackjack smash that led to Hall dropping the United States Title to Diamond Dallas Page not long ago.)
5. Still trying to make an impression on his famous uncle Eddie, Chavo Guerrero Jr. took a step in the wrong direction when his inexperience reared it's ugly head yet again in a tag team defeat to the Faces of Fear (Meng & the Barbarian). Things were looking good after Chavito flattened the Barbarian with a Tornado DDT, however he failed to follow the game plan of tagging in his uncle who was perched on the top rope and poised to deliver his Frog Splash finisher. Chavo motioned instead that HE wanted to do the honors of landing the famous Guerrero Frog Splash and began climbing up to the turnbuckle of the opposite corner where he was shoved off from behind by Meng. Chavo fell awkwardly to the canvas and was cradled by the Barbarian for the 1-2-3 at 8:38. Eddie shouted something in Spanish, shook his head in disgust and stormed back to the dressing room.
6. Tonight's Main Event was a Ladder Match for the United States Title pitting the defending Champ Diamond Dallas Page against "The Chosen One" Jeff Jarrett. The first one to retrieve the U.S. Belt, which is dangling above the ring from the rafters, wins the bout. A very dangerous match that saw both men take bad spills from precarious heights over the course of the contest. The end came when Jarrett began yet another ascent up the ladder but was caught from behind by DDP and given the Diamond Cutter from several rungs above the canvas. The Chosen One tried desperately to grab onto Page's foot after crashing to the mat but DDP was able to shake off his hand, scale the ladder and retrieve the U.S. Belt to retain the Championship. The time of the match was 14:40.

1. There's nothing like a high flying luchador contest to kick things off proper. Tonight's battle pitted Los Fabulosos (Silver King & El Dandy) against Rey Mysterio Jr. & his partner "The Juice" Juventud Guerrera. Play-by-play Man Tony Schiavone had difficulty keep up with all the action as bodies flew in and out of the ring. In the end, Silver King was done in by the combination of Mysterio's West Coast Pop (Springboard Hurricanrana) immediately followed by a Juvy 450 Splash from the top rope. The time of the fall was 7:59.
2. Scotty Riggs is nobody's pushover but he looked way over matched tonight against the likes of "Crippler" Chris Benoit. This was vintage Benoit from the onset. We had the triumvirate of Rolling German Suplexes followed by the thumb across the throat and a soaring Swan Dive Head Butt from the top rope. Riggs tapped out to the Crippler Crossface shortly after at 6:21.
3. "The Laughing Man" Hugh Morrus is a big fellow but he was tossed around the ring by WCW Champion Bill Goldberg like a cruiser weight. Goldberg's matches traditionally are short affairs and this evening's non-title bout was no exception. A Pumphandle Suplex was followed by Running Spear and the Jackhammer (Verticle Suplex Slam) in quick succession. Your winner at 3:44: the manster Goldberg.
4. "Belfast Bruiser" David "Fit" Finlay defeated "The Iceman" Dean Malenko in what some might consider a bit of an upset. The technically sound but small Malenko seemed ill prepared for Finlay's rough house attack. The Iceman was able to apply his trademark Texas Cloverleaf Leg Lock however the Belfast Bruiser managed to grab the bottom rope to break the hold. Finlay used a Forward Roll Slam to set up a Tombstone Piledriver for the winning pinfall at 8:36.
5. The n.W.o.'s Scott Hall (w/ Vincent) over "Lionheart" Chris Jericho (w/ "Monday Night Jericho" T-Shirt & Head of Security Ralphus). Looking to atone for his recent miscues, Vincent (who is very much on "thin ice" with the n.W.o.) did his job and got in several cheap shots to help Hall's cause over the course of this bout. The dim-witted Ralphus, on the other hand, seemed content to sit and watch his boss get manhandled and could only offer a toothless grin when Jericho pleaded for help. Hall polished off his opponent with the Outsider's Edge (Crucifix Powerbomb ) at 7:20. After the bell, Vincent entered the ring to congratulate Hall and got a kick to the midsection followed by another Outsider's Edge. Hall grabbed the house mic and said "That's for costing me the United States Title !" before exiting the ring. (An errant blackjack smash from Vincent led to Diamond Dallas Page winning the United States Championship from Hall at the United Center in Chicago several weeks ago.)
6. In the world of Professional Wrestling, Charlotte, NC is Horsemen Country and the fans were on their feet when the 2001: Space Odyssey music hit to usher in "Nature Boy" Ric Flair. The Nature Boy showed opponent Bret "The Hitman" Hart why he is "The Dirtiest Player in the Game" by breaking the rules every chance he could. Chokeholds, low blows and a loaded punch with an object Flair found on the floor OOR all came into play in tonight's Main Event. Despite all that, it was a tire iron smash from fellow Horseman Arn Anderson that ultimately led to the three count on the Hitman. Your winner at 15:37: "Nature Boy" Ric Flair with a loud "Wooooooooo !"

Announcers: Gordon Solie & Barbara Clary
Ring Announcer: Jay Goodley
Referees: Buddy Colt, Bill Alphonso & “Coach” John Heath
1. Hailing from “The Land of the Rising Sun”, Mr. Sato & Mr. Saito made short work of their opponents Raul Mata and his masked partner El Rayo. The team from the Orient worked Mata over with a barrage of karate chops, kicks and nerve holds before Mr. Sato endng things with his Japanese Sleeper at 2:59.
2. Bryan St. John tried to rile up the fans with some derogatory hand gestures during Jay Goodley’s introduction but to no avail. St. John’s points total took a hit as a result, but the effect made little difference in the bout’s outcome. Lumberjack Jos Leduc was in command from the opening bell and wore down his opponent with a grueling Bear Hug before finishing off St. John with his trademark One Arm Backbreaker at 4:41.
3. The Beautiful Beauregarde (w/ Manager Sir Oliver Humperdink) resorted to desperate measures to pull out a victory over “All-American” Bob Roop, but his strategy backfired in a big way. Beauregarde tried to bash his opponent with Humperdink’s walking stick but ended up hitting Referee Bill Alphonso with it instead when Roop ducked. The dazed official called for the DQ at 6:12 and had to be assisted to the back for medical attention.
4. Popular Mike Graham scored a victory over the much larger Thor the Viking at 8:47. Thor was conferring with his manager Sonny King in the corner when Graham hit him with a Drop Kick from behind. The subsequent collision knocked King off the apron and sent Thor reeling backward right into a Schoolboy Roll Up for the three count.
5. The rough night for Sonny King’s Family continued when Pak Song was disqualified in his bout against Tiger Conway Jr. at 7:14. The Korean martial arts expert became frustrated with his opponent’s speed and agility and whacked Conway across the back with a Kendo stick that he had brought with him down to ringside. Referee John Heath saw the infraction and wasted no time in calling for the bell.
6. The masked Spoiler II displayed a very noticeable Bobby Duncum-like southern drawl when he snatched Ring Announcer Jay Goodley’s microphone away and berated his opponent Blackjack Mulligan during the Main Event match introductions. The rant did boost the masked man’s heel points total, but it was not enough to bring him a victory. Spoiler II was attempting to load his mask with a foreign object when Mulligan was able to pry the weapon away and deck his opponent with a loaded punch. Referee Buddy Colt counted the pin for Mulligan at 8:07.

Ring Announcer: Barbara Clary
Referees: Sonny Myers, Frenchy Bernard & Bill Alphonso
1. Ali Bey (w/ Turban, Magic Lantern & a Wild Look in His Eye) beat Pete Austin at 4:51. He took a beating, but credit Austin for hanging in there against his much larger opponent from the Middle East. It took a smash from Bey's Magic Lantern to put Austin's shoulders down to the mat for the winning three count.
2. The rather eccentric Bugsy McGraw (w/ Leather Pilot's Helmet, Scarf & Goggles) defeated Raul Mata at 3:34. Mata's one brief flurry of offense was short-circuited when McGraw's manager Sir Oliver Humperdink tripped him with his walking stick. Bugsy immediately capitalized on the moment and flew in for a landing with a running Splash to seal the victory.
3. Jerry Brisco over "Dirty" Don Serrano at 7:42. Serrano dominated much of this bout with his rule breaking tactics and nearly pinned Jerry with the aid of a foreign object. The end came, ironically enough, when Serrano tried to use Brisco's own hold against him. Jerry was able to cradle his opponent in a Small Package for the winning pinfall as Serrano was attempting to apply a Figure Four Leglock.
4. Big Bill Dromo joined forces with Paul Ellering to defeat Sonny King's unscrupulous tandem of Korean Giant Pak Song & King Curtis Iaukea. The heels seemed to be on the verge of disqualification throughout this tag team contest, but went too far when Iaukea tossed Referee Sonny Myers over the top rope and sent the official crashing hard to the floor. The battered Myers immediately signaled for the DQ at 8:53.
5. Lars Anderson over popular Steve Keirn by way of Count Out at 7:09. Keirn used a repertoire of aerial maneuvers to keep Lars reeling, but fell victim to some outside interference from Anderson's buddy Killer Karl Kox who pulled the top rope down causing Keirn to fall OOR. Kox then added a smash from behind with Lars' mysterious bag of coins as Keirn was trying to get himself back inside the ring. Referee Frenchy Bernard, who's attention was being diverted by Anderson during the shenanigans, laid the ten count on the KO'd Keirn.
6. It was an ominous sign for the Florida Champion when Don Muraco's pre-match sneak attack on challenger Rocky Johnson was thwarted during the Main Event introductions. As it turned out, not even Sonny King's interference from the ring apron could save the title. Muraco was sent crashing into his manager with a High Flying Drop Kick from behind and was then rolled up for the three count at 16:53 as he staggered backward from the force of the collision. Rocky Johnson is the Neeeeeeeewwwww Florida Champion !

Referees: Don Curtis & Scrappy McGowan
1. Bryan St. John drew absolutely no heat from the crowd in Perry despite his heel status. The loss of points did not cost him the match, though. He and his opponent, "The Unofficial Mayor of Lake City" Bubba Douglas, were both disqualified after tossing Referee Don Curtis OOR and slugging it out toe-to-toe inside the squared circle. the time of the match was 6:49.
2. King Curtis Iaukea (w/ Manager Sonny King) defeated Herb Calvert at 4:41. The sadistic Iaukea could have most likely pinned his opponent after landing his Hawaiian Splash, but opted instead to yank him up at the count of two to inflict more punishment. Calvert was out on his feet after several crushing Head Butts and submitted to Iaukea's Asiatic Spike to the throat moments later.
3. Sweet Brown Sugar over Mr. Sato (w/ Mr. Saito) via disqualification at 7:01. Normally a tag team wrestler, Sato was a bit out of his element and struggled against Sweet Brown Sugar in this one-on-one contest. Sugar connected with a Flying Drop Kick to Sato's kisser and scaled the top rope to deliver his Diving Cross Body Press finisher, however he was shoved off by Saito's push from behind before he could properly set himself. Referee Don Curtis saw the blatant interference and immediately called for the bell.
4. Jerry Brisco earned himself some bonus points for interrupting his opponent Mr. Uganda's pre-match interview with Gordon Solie at ringside. This one was a barn-burner with several near pinfalls, yet neither man could put the other away. The bout went to the 10:00 time limit with Referee Scrappy McGowan officially declaring the contest a Draw.
5. The demented Killer Karl Kox drew the wrath of the fans by tearing apart a youngster's autograph book as he made his way to the ring to take on the popular Mike Graham. Kox was barely able to reach the ropes to break Mike's Figure Four Leglock and rolled himself OOR to regroup. Graham had no intention of allowing his hobbling opponent to recover and took the battle to Kox on the floor. The two grapplers were counted out by Referee Don Curtis at 11:49 as they fought all the way back into the concession stands.
6. The Spoilers (I & II) tag team experience shown through in their Main Event match against the tough tandem of Blackjack Mulligan & "Lumberjack" Jos Leduc. The masked men employed the ol' switcheroo behind Referee Scrappy McGowan's back to allow the illegal Spoiler II to sneak inside the ring and roll up Leduc from behind. The official was befuddled by the masked confusion and counted the tainted pin at 9:25.

1. The self-professed "Master of the Black Martial Arts" Ron Slinker cut a brilliant promo prior to tonight's opening match against Don Moore. To say that Slinker is "out there" would be putting it mildly. No one quite knew what the heck he was talking about, but it sure sounded dark and mysterious. Even the normally combative Moore seemed reluctant to lock up after Slinker's demented diatribe. The Martial Arts expert severely weakened his reluctant opponent by choking Moore out with the Black Belt from his Gi to kick things off. Slinker would go on to win the bout via submission at 5:15 with a Leg Grapevine and refused to release the hold until Alphonso threatened to DQ him.
2. Ali Bey from the Middle East (w/ Turban & Magic Lantern) grabbed the house mic away from Jay Goodley and began spouting off in Arabic to a chorus of "Boos". His opponent Big Bill Dromo grew impatient and gave his rotund foe a brisk shove from behind. Bey was furious and charged wildly at Dromo but ended up jamming his shoulder into the turnbuckle post when Big Bill side-stepped him at the last second. Dromo immediately went to work on the injured arm and stayed on it throughout the match. Bey would eventually submit to a grueling Arm Lock at 6:58.
3. "Dirty" Don Serrano attacked before the bell to get the early jump on Steve Keirn but could not sustain his advantage. Utilizing his speed and quickness, Keirn rebounded quickly with some nifty aerial maneuvers. A pair of Drop Kicks and a Flying Forearm off the ropes had Serrano reeling. Steve slid between his dazed opponent's legs to get behind Serrano and surprised Dirty Don with a Schoolboy Rollup for the winning pinfall at 7:04.
4. The wild and crazy Bugsy McGraw defeated "All-American" Bob Roop with some help from his manager Sir Oliver Humperdink. It looked for a moment as though Roop would win this one by count out when the unorthodox McGraw suddenly bolted from the ring and ran back up the aisle with his arms outstretched buzzing like an airplane. Humperdink quickly corralled him, though, and stirred Bugsy back inside the ring in the nick of time. Sir Oliver made his presence felt once more when he reached in and tripped Roop as he was being Irish whipped to the ropes. Bugsy quickly capitalized on the outside interference by adding a Big Splash to put the All-American away at 9:35.
5. Lumberjack Jos Leduc beat King Curtis Iaukea in a brutal Steel Cage Match at 11:49. It looked like curtains for Leduc after King Curtis clocked him with a loaded punch courtesy of some car keys that Sonny King somehow managed to sneak inside the ring. Iaukea was about to exit via the cage door when Blackjack Mulligan came out of no where to abruptly slam it in his face. King Curtis staggered backward right into Leduc's famous One-Armed Backbreaker. The battered Lumberjack was then able to escape through the door to victory.
6. Jack and Jerry Brisco defended their Florida Tag Team Titles against Killer Karl Kox & Lars Anderson in this evening's Main Event. This was a wild one from start to finish that ultimately ended up on the floor. The Briscos more than held their own as the battle raged OOR around the announcers' table. Chairs, microphones and even Gordon Soli's TV monitor came into played during the mayhem. Both teams were counted out by Referee Leo Garibaldi at 13:16. The Brisco Brothers retain the Tag Team Championship.

1. Waylon Mercy (Dan Spivey) made quick work of Duane Gill in tonight's opening bout. Mercy nearly put his opponent through the mat with a crushing Powerbomb before finishing Gill off with the Psycho Sleeper Hold at 3:13.
2. The British fans didn't quite know what to make of a garbage man wrestling a baseball player, but such was the case when Duke "The Dumpster" Droese took on Abe "Knuckleball" Schwartz (Steve Lombardi). Abe had his moments tonight and even managed to clamp on his 7th Inning Stretch (Rear Naked Choke) but Duke was able to grab the ropes and break the hold. Droese rebounded with his Trash Compactor (Tilt-A-Whirl Slam) to gain the three count at 6:29.
3. Jeff Jarrett's Roadie pulled out a victory by the skin of his teeth against the high-flying Max Moon. The Roadie was able to roll through the spaceman's Reverse Diving Cross Body Press from the top rope and grabbed a handful of tights to make the pin at 5:58.
4. Ted Dibiase's Million Dollar Corporation (Irwin R. Shyster & "Supreme Fighting Machine" Kama) defeated the duo of Bob "Spark Plugg" Holly and the 1-2-3 Kid at 8:41. Credit the Million Dollar Man himself for this victory as Dibiase slugged Bob Holly in the head with Shyster's steel haliburton while Referee Tim White was distracted. Kama pounced on the KO'd Holly as White turned around to count the pin.
5. There was no one more popular in the NEC Arena this evening than "British Bulldog" Davey Boy Smith. Davey Boy rode the momentum of his fans all the way to victory over the always tough "King of Harts" Owen Hart. Owen was in the process of applying his dreaded Sharpshooter submission hold when he was cradled by Smith for the win at 9:46.
6. The Undertaker (w/ Eerie organ music and Paul Bearer) beat "The Beast from the East" Bam Bam Bigelow via count out in the Main Event at 9:20. Bam Bam proved to be a handful for the 'Taker but missed a critical Diving Head Butt off the apron to the floor when the prone Deadman abruptly sat up as only the Undertaker can. Referee Earl Hebner had a very slow and generous ten count but it was still not enough to help get Bigelow back in the ring in time for the match to continue.

1. The scantily clad Sunny received lots of whistles and catcalls from the Toronto crowd as she accompanied Bodydonna Skip to the ring. Skip's match against Scotty Taylor (The future Scotty-2-Hotty) seemed almost overshadowed by the valet's presence. Taylor got in his share of offense but was caught in no-man's-land as he attempted to climb up to the top rope to deliver a high risk maneuver. Skip cut him off at the pass and delivered a Superplex to pin Scotty at 4:18.
2. Bob "The Cat" Bradley was no pushover for "The Native American" Tatanka. The Cat nearly pinned his opponent after a Flying Forearm to the head followed by a Standing Moonsault, but Tatanka managed to lift a shoulder in the nick of time to break the count. The Native American came back to take control of the match and put Bradley away with the End of the Trail / Renegade Drop (Fallaway Slam) at 4:53.
3. "Mr. Bob Backlund" (as he demanded to be introduced) over Savio Vega at 7:47. To his credit, Vega eluded Backlund's dreaded Crossface Chickenwing submission finisher. Vega also missed a corner charge and ran full steam into his opponent's raised knee. Backlund then held Savio down with both feet on the ropes for leverage to gain the pinfall.
4. Intercontinental Champion "Heartbreak Kid" Shawn Michaels teamed up with his personal bodyguard "Big Daddy Cool" Diesel to defeat Harvey Whippleman's team of Well Dunn (Timothy Well & Steven Dunn) at 6:56. In a nifty finish, Michaels back dropped Timothy Well right into the waiting arms of Diesel who then planted Well into the mat with his Jackknife Powerbomb for the 1-2-3.
5. "Da Bad Guy" Razor Ramon (w/ Toothpick flick and oozing Machismo at every pore) got a bit of vindication over the shady Repo Man (w/ Cat Burglar Mask & Tow Hook). Repo swiped Ramon's gold bling from ringside several weeks ago citing that Razor had defaulted on a credit card payment. Well, Ramon still hasn't gotten his jewelry back but he did get the satisfaction of pinning Repo with his Razor's Edge (Crucifix Powerbomb ) at 7:13.
6. WWF World Title Match. The defending champ, Bret "The Hitman" Hart certainly had Toronto behind him as he put the belt on the line against Jeff J-A-Ha-Ha-Double R-Ha-Ha-E-Double T (w/ Blinking Sunglasses, the Roadie and the Fargo Strut). There were anxious moments when Jarrett connected with a Diving Cross Body Press off the top rope, however the Hitman was able to roll through on the momentum of the maneuver to end up on top for the winning pinfall at 15:41. Jarrett was in disbelief as Maple Leaf Gardens roared with cheers. Bret Hart retains the WWF Title !

1. With Spring Training drawing to an end and MLB Opening Day just around the corner, it seemed fitting that Abe "Knuckleball" Schwartz should open the show this evening and with a victory no less ! Schwartz, who is Steve Lombardi with his face painted up like a baseball, entered the ring to "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" and dominated Phil Apollo with his usual rule-breaking tactics. A well executed Powerslam from Schwartz set Apollo up for the Seventh Inning Stretch (Rear Naked Choke) submission at 4:36.
2. From Vince McMahon's bottomless bag of gimmicks, NASCAR driver turned wrestler Bob "Spark Plugg" Holly graced us next from the Speedway of Talladega, Alabama and used his Pitstop Plunge (Diving Cross Body Press from the top rope) to put away hapless Duane Gill at 3:28.
3. "King of Harts" Owen Hart had no problems with Reno Riggins. Owen could have probably pinned his opponent following a Missile Drop Kick had he wanted to, but opted instead to clamp on the Sharpshooter leg lock to induce a submission from Riggins at 4:02. Hart was in no hurry to release the hold and pushed Referee Joey Marella to the brink of disqualification before finally relenting. Riggins had to be assisted to the back for medical attention immediately afterward.
4. "Million Dollar Man" Ted Dibiase joined the announcers' table to provide commentary on The Million Dollar Corporation's "Supreme Fighting Machine" Kama who was taking on the masked Max Moon. Kicks, punches and head butts were the order of the day for Kama who managed for the most part to keep the high flying Moon grounded. The masked man did sneak in a quick Drop Kick, but was thrown off the top rope when he climbed up to the turnbuckle to attempt a high risk maneuver. Kama followed up with a springing Reverse Body Drop from the 2nd rope in the corner to score the three count at 5:40.
5. The Giant Gonzalez (w/ cheesy muscle body suit & the irritating Harvey Whippleman) and "Made in the U.S.A." Lex Luger were both counted out at 7:27. Awkward and slow-paced, this match was difficult to watch. The fans peppered both combatants with chants of "Boring!" throughout the contest. It was almost a relief when Mike Chioda's count reached ten as Luger and Gonzalez bumbled and stumbled around ringside battling it out on the floor.
6. The Quebecers (Jacques & Pierre w/ manager Johnny Polo) put their WWF Tag Team Belts on the line against Number One contenders Men on a Mission (Mo & Mabel w/ rapping manager Oscar). The titles were in serious jeopardy of changing hands after Pierre went down face-first following a Drop Toe Hold from Mo followed by a Running Leg Drop to the back of the head from Big Mabel. Apparently Johnny Polo thought so as well and ran in to break up the subsequent pin attempt prompting Referee Joey Marella to call for the bell. Your winners by disqualification due to outside interference at 9:33: Men on a Mission with the Quebecers retaining the WWF Tag Team Belts.

1. Veteran Dusty Wolfe gave "Portugese Man O' War" Aldo Montoya fits in tonight's opening bout. A missed Drop Kick nearly cost Aldo the match as Wolfe followed up with a Knee Drop for a close two count. Montoya battled back, however, and scored the winning pinfall with a Reverse Bulldog from the 2nd rope at 5:42.
2. Former WWF Tag Team Champions, The Smokin' Gunns (Billy & Bart) made it look easy against the masked Conquistadors 1 & II. Billy Gunn used the Gunslinger (Swinging Side Slam) to set up Conquistador #1 for the finish. The dazed masked man was then whipped to the ropes and back dropped into the waiting arms of Bart Gunn who delivered a Piledriver for the three count at 4:45.
3. Jerry "The King" Lawler's personal dentist, Dr. Isaac Yankem, made quick work of Scotty Taylor. A devastating Chokeslam could have probably ended things but Yankem opted to seal the deal with the DDS (DDT) for the 1-2-3 at 3:28.
4. Irwin R. Shyster riled up the fans but good with a reminder that the April 15th tax deadline was rapidly approaching. His opponent Man Mountain Rock seemed to speak for the masses when he decked IRS with a roundhouse right to a loud ovation. Unfortunately, Rock could not sustain the advantage and went down to the Writeoff (Flying Clothesline) at 6:49.
5. The Beverly Brothers (Beau & Blake) defeated the Headshrinkers (Fatu & Samu) with a helping hand from their manager "The Genius" Lanny Poffo. Decked out in his red graduation cap and gown, the Genius jumped up to the apron and shoved Fatu off the top rope as the Headshrinker was poised to deliver a Diving Splash onto the fallen Blake Beverly. Blake then cradled the dazed Fatu with a handful of tights to secure the tainted pin at 9:12.
6. In the Main Event, "British Bulldog" Davey Boy Smith defeated Yokozuna (w/ "Samurai Warrior" Mr. Fuji) by way of disqualification at 8:36. A missed Bonzai Drop (Sit Down Splash from the 2nd rope) by Yokozuna directly led to the finish. Davey Boy attempted to lift his 600 lb adversary no doubt with the intention of delivering his trademark Powerslam but we'll never know if he would have been able to get him up. Mr. Fuji entered the ring and smashed his Japanese Flag across the British Bulldog's back prompting Referee Mike Chioda to call for the DQ.

1. "Quick" Rick Garren wasn't quick enough to elude the Karachi Krunch (Corner Avalanche) from the 399 lb Makhan Singh of the Cartel. Time of the fall was 2:39.
2. The Lightning Kid (w/ Valet Tessa) defeated Chaz in a GWF Light Heavyweight Tournament match at 6:21. The Kid came off the top rope with a Diving Leg Drop for the pinfall after Tessa had reached into the ring and tripped Chaz.
3. "Sensational" Steven Dane relied upon a loaded elbow pad to beat "Missouri Tiger" Jeff Gaylord at 7:18. Taking a beating and unable to mount much of an offense against his opponent, Dane bailed out of the ring to regroup and found an object lying on the floor at ringside. After tucking the object inside his elbow pad, Dane re-entered the ring only to be whipped into the far corner by Gaylord. Dane caught his opponent in the jaw with the doctored pad just as Gaylord rushed in. The loss eliminated Gaylord from the GWF TV Title Tournament.
4. Hailing from Monte Carlo in the French Riviera, the Handsome Stranger (w/ Black Mask and Roses for the Ladies at Ringside) defeated "The Original Tugboat" Tug Taylor from Clinton, IA at 5:30. A missed Elbow Drop from the 2nd rope was the beginning of the end for Taylor. As the rotund Tug got back to his feet, he was greeted with a Missile Drop Kick off the top rope from the Stranger for the three count.
5. The team of "Conan" Chris Walker & Steve Simpson beat the Dirty Davis Brothers (Mike & Tom) at 6:56 to advance in the GWF Tag Team tournament. Simpson came off the top rope with a Diving Splash after Tom had leveled his own brother with an errant Clothesline.
6. "Hollywood" John Tatum of the "Coast to Coast Connection" (w/ The California Stud "Rugged" Rod Price & Skandor Akbar) over "Gorgeous" Gary Young at 7:05. Price passed a hidden foreign object into Tatum's hand while Referee John Keaton was preoccupied with a shouting match between Gary Young and Skandor Akbar. Young was in the process of giving Tatum a Back Suplex when he was KO'd by a Loaded Punch from his opponent for the pinfall. "Wild" Bill Irwin, who fancies himself as "The Sheriff" of the GWF, saw the infraction and ran into the ring with his Bullwhip "Mr. Lash" to point out the mischief to Referee James Beard. Irwin fended off Akbar's men with his whip, but the referee's decision stood.
7. Black Bart from Pecos, TX (w/ "BB" Branding Iron) was eliminated from the GWF North American Title tournament by the Patriot at 8:43. Decked out in Red, White & Blue attire and hailing "From Sea to Shining Sea", the popular Masked Man came off the top rope with the Patriot Missile (Diving Shoulder Tackle) to score the pin and advance in the tournament.

1. "Bad Boy" Barry Horowitz was eliminated from the Light Heavy Tournament courtesy of Terry Garvin. The Bad Boy from St. Petersburg, FL seemed overly distracted by the GlobalDome crowd tonight. Horowitz was yelling at a heckler to "Shut up while I'm wrestling !" when he was caught off guard with a Roll Up from behind for the pin at 5:41. No pat on the back for Barry as Garvin advances to the semi-finals.
2. The Soultaker (WWF's Papa Shango/Godfather) made short work of Private Terry Daniels. The Private earned some bonus points for a rousing ring entrance thanks in part to the presence of some Dallas Colts semi-pro football players in attendance but it was not nearly enough to carry him to victory. The Soultaker put Terry away with a Chokeslam off the ropes at 3:03.
3. GWF Tag Team Tournament Match. The Renegade Warriors ("Brave Sky" Chris Youngblood & "Nikona" Mark Youngblood) fell victim to a dirty double team from their opponents The Maulers (Jacko Victory & Rip Morgan) and were eliminated from the tournament. Morgan snuck into the ring and combined with his partner for a Double Gourdbuster (Front Suplex) on Brave Sky behind the referee's back as James Beard was sending Nikona back to his corner. Beard turned around to find Victory making the cover and counted the pin.
4. Iceman King Parsons (w/ Rooty Poo Stick) was in fine form as he defeated "California Blonde" Shawn Summers with his trademark Rumper Stumper (Butt Bump off the ropes) at 5:58.
5. "Palm Beach Heartthrob" Scott Anthony (ECW's Raven) advanced to the semi-finals of the TV Title Tournament at the expense of "Wild" Bill Irwin (w/ "Mr. Lash" the Bullwhip). Anthony hid one of his jewelry chains in his tights and waited for the opportune moment to wrap it around his fist and smash Irwin in the head with it to score the pinfall.
6. "Gorgeous" Gary Young took advantage of a miscue by Skandor Akbar to defeat Sweet Daddy Falcone from 42nd Street, NYC (w/ Violin Case) at 7:56. Akbar climbed up to the apron and accidently bashed Falcone in the head with a folding chair to precipitate the pin. "The Family", who entrusted Falcone to Akbar's keep for training and tutelage, can not be pleased with these developments.
7. GWF North American Tournament Match. "Hot Stuff" Eddie Gilbert, who claims that GWF stands for the "Gilbert Wrestling Federation", ousted "Latin Heartthrob" Al Perez from the tournament at 9:38. Gilbert managed to pull a victory out of his bag of tricks with an inside cradle and a handful of tights as Perez was bending over to pick Hot Stuff up off the mat. Gilbert advances to the semi-finals for the GWF's most prestigious title.

1. GWF Light Heavyweight Tournament. Jerry Lynn over "Beach Bully" Alex Porteau (w/ Super Soaker Water Pistol) at 7:32. "Maniac" Mike Davis (w/ Many Cards Short of a Full Deck) strolled down to ringside for no apparent reason and squirted Porteau in the eyes with his own water gun. Lynn capitalized on the moment with a Schoolboy Roll Up on his flustered opponent to score the pinfall and advance in the tournament.
2. "Hard Body" Calvin Knapp put away "Psychotic" Ed Robinson with his Knapp Time Sleeper at 3:40.
3. The Coast to Coast Connection ("Hollywood" John Tatum & "California Stud" Rugged Rod Price w/ Skandor Akbar & Sweet Daddy Falcone) eliminated the Texas Mustangs ("Big" John Hawk & Bobby Duncom Jr.) from the GWF Tag Team Tournament. Price was caught in Johnny Hawk's Boston Crab when Tatum (who claims to be a 52nd Degree Blackbelt in Shotokan Karate) snuck into the ring with a California Superkick while Referee James Beard was being distracted by Skandor Akbar. Price pounced on the dazed Hawk for the cover as Beard turned around to count the pin at 10:58.
4. Big Bully Busick from Powerhouse Hill, Weirton, WV decked Manny Villalobos with the Bully Blaster (Heart Punch) to gain the three count at 3:18.
5. GWF TV Tournament. The Handsome Stranger defeated Bull Pain (w/ Samantha) via DQ at 8:06. Samantha did not take kindly to the Handsome Stranger handing her a rose during his ring entrance and went out of her way to cause trouble throughout the match. Referee Rick Manning gave her a stern warning which prompted a slap across the face from the contentious valet. Manning had enough of Miss Samantha's antics for one evening and called for the bell.
6. "Sensational" Steven Dane beat Rattlesnake Raitz at 6:25. The shady Dane was on his knees in the corner begging for mercy when he grabbed the Rattlesnake's tights and pulled him face-first into the top turnbuckle. Raitz staggered backwards into a Schoolboy Roll Up from Dane for the pinfall.
7. GWF North American Tournament Match. The Dark Patriot (w/ "The Expert" Bruce Prichard) advanced to the semi-finals at the expense of "Prime Time" Brian Lee. Lee was blinded by a faceful of powder thrown by Prichard and stumbled right into the Scud Missile (Diving Shoulder Tackle from the top rope) for the three count at 9:39.

1. Light Heavyweight Tournament. "The Object of Desire" Billy Joe Travis used his ring savy and experience to defeat Ben Jordan at 5:49. Jordan whipped his opponent to the far corner and attempted a Monkey Flip but Travis was able to hook his arms under the ring ropes to block the maneuver causing Jordan to land flat on his back. Billy Joe pounced on him with both feet on the ropes for leverage to gain the three count.
2. "Teen Heartthrob" Chaz over Khris Germany at 6:35. Germany got in his fair share of offense until he telegraphed a Back Body Drop attempt. Chaz was able to float over his opponent and daze Germany with a Facebuster from behind for the pinfall.
3. The Ebony Experience (Booker T & Stevie Ray) eliminated Christopher Love's Pretty Young Things ("Erotic" Eric Fontaine & "Hot Body" Randy Rhodes) from the GWF Tag Team Tournament at 6:59. Love attempted to spray perfume into Stevie's eyes but inadvertently got Randy Rhodes with it instead. The blinded Rhodes walked right into a Missile Drop Kick from the top rope by Booker for the pin.
4. "Palm Beach Heartthrob" Scott Anthony of the Cartel dominated Todd Overbow and pulled him up on several two counts before finally ending things with his Palm Beach Headthrob (Piledriver) at 3:22.
5. TV Title Tournament. Sam Houston from Bear Creek, TX overcame a prematch sneak attack to beat "The Pride of Montague County" Cowboy Johnny Mantell at 7:40.

Mantell staggered backward into a Schoolboy Roll Up from Houston for the three count.
6. Black Bart (w/ Double-B Branding Iron & Skandor Akbar) beat "Cutie Pie" Louie Spicolli with his Texas Trash Compactor Leg Drop at 5:11. The finisher was set up when Akbar reached into the ring and tripped Spicolli as he was being whipped to the ropes.
7. "Polish Power" Scott Putski advanced in the North American Championship Tournament with a win over Makhan Singh of the Cartel by DQ at 9:06. Putski connected with the Polish Hammer off the ropes however his subsequent pin attempt was foiled by a Cactus Jack run in. Cactus and Singh did a number on Putski until the Ebony Experience hit the ring to make the save.
