Dave and Lance welcome us to the Show
The Invader (200lbs) vs Dutch Mantel(224lbs) (AWA Southern Champion)
|Dutch applies the sleeper|
We got a quick promo with the Midnight Express.
|"If you give me a 2x4 I'll fight a Jap, I'll fight anybody, cause' with a board son you can beat somebodies brains out, you know that Lance Russel?" - Dennis Condrey|
|"Your going against pound-for-pound one of the best wrestlers in the world today brother, and I plan on leaving with your strap." - Stan Lane|
|"They are just pounding the stew out of Rick Gibson." - Lance Russell|
Robert Gibson tried to make the save but it didn't turn out so well:
|"So far, the Midnight Express have been King of the Hill inside the ring." - Lance Russell|
Roy Rogers and Rick McCord vs The Midnight Express(Randy Rose and Dennis Condrey with Norvell Austin at ringside)
|Condrey and Rose looking cool|
|"Right then and there they could have gone for the pin, but they didn't." - Lance Russell|
|"That's not something that you are going to use as an all-time example of sportsmanship." - Lance Russell|
|"Randy Rose who is bleeding profusely... and I don't blame the Gibson's one bit." - Lance Russell|
|The Gibson Brothers|
Speed vs Dennis Upton
They did some nice arm work like you are seeing in the picture. Upton takes some weird bumps due to his tall, lanky frame.
Speed won with some kind of clothesline/slingblade at 3:08.
|"It's not new Lance, give me a break...looks like a Puerto-Rican prom dress, doesn't it?" - Jerry Lawler|
Ricky Morton and Chief Thundercloud vs The Assassins
|"The opponents are not here yet...but as soon as they arrive, we'll tell you who they are." - Dave Brown|
|"Oh, here they come." - Dave Brown|
|"Double Tommy-Hawk there on The Assassin...he chopped him up good there." - Lance Russell, after Assassin took some chops from Thundercloud.|
|"See, that's just what we are talking about. Soon as Rick got the man down, Hart's hollerin' he's pullin' his hair...then the ref comes over. Did you pull his hair? That's a distraction." - Jerry Lawler|
The Assassins won here after a double clothesline on Thundercloud at 8:14.
|Check out that one in the blue|
|Stan Lane looking cool|
Gotta love the MX Version 3 and Koko. That's a heck of a team right there.
|Reach for the sky|
|"We got 8...well 9 of them in there" - Dave Brown|
|"It may have not been the nicest way to do it, but it seems thats the only way to do it from now on. We're sick and tired of being the nice guys, cause' nice guys finish last" - Rick Gibson on the wooden board attack on the MX.|
|"I've been busted open a few times before, but when it's a snake like you that does it with that walking stick brother I'm gonna take it this week and shove it where the sun don't shine". Bill Dundee on Jimmy Hart.|
