Pierre Abernathy over Sgt. Savage
Chris Rocker over Jordan Lacey
Idol Bane/Johnny Vinyl over Brandon Espinosa/Rockin' Randy
Flash Flanagan over "The Golden Boy" Greg Anthony by DQ in a LAW Title Match

----70 in the crowd...After the TGB/Gary J match, TGB and Jeff O'Dell demanded that Flash come out and give the apology that he promised last week. Flash paused for a minute then said "I'm sorry.... for not doing this sooner" and starting bumping TGB all around. Flash said he was there not to apologize but to get "HIS" LAW Title back. TGB said that Flash would never get title shot as long as he was champion and he and Jeff O'Dell started walking away. Flash then said "Hey, Willy Wonka why don't you take that Oompa Loompa to the back!". TGB became irate and told Flash that he had his title shot and it would be tonight…Pierre pinned Sgt.Savage with his feet on the ropes then after the match gave Sarge a Flatliner on to a open steel chair. Before the match the Pro European, Pierre had some things to say about the USA and the crowd was very upset…Rockin' Randy went for his superkick and Viynl countered by hitting a low blow for the 1, 2, 3. When Espy slid in to check on Randy, JV got his attention allowing Idol Bane to come behind and nail Espy with The Ghost of Andy Kauffman…The main event was a wild one seeing Flash perform a triple jump plancha to the outside onto the reining champion. Flash had TGB beat after Tree of Woe Stomp but as Sherina Fowler was making the count Jeff O'Dell was screaming that he would fire her but she didn't care, she tried to make the three count any way but Jeff pulled her out of the ring. They argued back and forth and Sherina slapped Jeff O'Dell. This allowed TGB to knock Flash out of the ring. TGB then grabbed Sherina and was going to piledrive her but Flash came and gave TGB the big boot. Jeff jumped on the apron and Flash grabbed him and nailed him with his right hand but not before Jeff could drop the chain to TGB. TGB turned Flash around and blasted him the steel chain. TGB covered 1,2,3. Sherina raised TGB's right arm and TGB started taunting the crowd, Sherina went back and raised TGB's left arm and the chain fell to the mat. Sherina reversed the decision. TGB tried to get on Flash after the match but got back dropped to the outside. Flash challenged TGB to No DQ, No Rules match next week but Jeff O'Dell said that Flash isn't getting a title shot next week because no one lays their hands on him and Flash YOU ARE FIRED!...It has been reported on LAW's myspace that TGB has signed an Open Contract for April 25th's Spring Breakout and we will find out this week, who is up for the challenge…Tracy Smothers will be at LAW this coming Friday.

A Piece of my Mind April 11th, 2008 by "The Big Cheese" Sal Corrente

The Post Flair Era is in full swing. I am sure many of us have our memories of Ric Flair. Of course the many great interviews on TBS each week will always live in our minds. The first time I really interacted with Flair was a fund raiser for Nikita Koloff’s wife at the time Mandy. She had been diagnosed with cancer and many of the NWA Stars gathered at Nikita’s Gym a gym that I would eventually become a partner in for a fund raiser. It was Ric Flair, Sting, Lex Luger, Gorgeous Jimmy Garvin and Precious, Ivan Koloff and others. When The Nature Boy walked in it wasn’t like the others, it was an event.

I can remember one night being in Norfolk, VA. I was rooming with Nikita and he very rarely ever went out. If he did it was for dinner. I told him I was going to go down to the bar. It wasn’t long after that I was back in the room. When I arrived Nikita said “I thought that you were going to the bar”. I answered and told him that Flair had a tray of drinks that he was handing out and I could see that I was next on the list. I am not and have all my life been a non drinker. I wasn’t sure how you tell the Nature Boy "no thanks", so with that I left. Isn’t it funny, but there are few other non drinkers in the business that I am aware of. One is Gene Ligon, the others are Jerry “The King” Lawler and “The Mouth of the South” Jimmy Hart. You would have never thought two non-drinkers would get into a fight but yet somehow Lawler and I did it.

One night in Richmond, VA Mike Rotundo was the television champion and he was defending the title against Steve “Doctor Death” Williams. Well we were doing a Dusty finish that night. The referee was Tommy Young, he was to take a bump down when he did Rotundo was to dump Williams over the top rope which was a disqualification. Well, all I knew was that I was supposed to look for a suplex and when that came I was to run down and make a three count and declare Williams the new champion. Well I did my job but the DQ apparently never happened. Well the people booed the hell out of the whole thing when we tried to take the belt off of Williams. The thing I remember the most was when we got behind the curtain Flair was livid, screaming about how we killed the whole club. I had never seen Flair so upset but he was right what had just happened was terrible. I always made sure after that I knew everything that was to be going on whether it was my job or not. This came in handy years later in Winston-Salem NC when I had to step into a match with Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat and Robert Fuller. I will tell that story in another article

How about the time that Ric Flair went two segments with George South on TBS. He let George throw him all over the place to make a point. George is one of the Carolina’s most famous enhancement talents and member of The Cruel Connection and The Gladiator's. Flair’s point was you don’t ask the World Champion to go two segments with an enhancement talent.

Another story was told to me by David Isley. He was working in an enhancement role for the NWA, He was wrestling Chris Champion who by this time was doing his Karate Kid gimmick. Well, it seems that Chris really nailed David with the kick. When they got in the back Flair got on the headset and was screaming at Chris for what he had done being so sloppy. It was never considered a good thing to hurt solid enhancement talent. The really cool thing was Flair gave David a one hundred dollar bill to go to the doctor. Of course that money should have come from Jim Crockett but it was Flair stepped up and isn’t that why he is The Nature Boy.

Another story I always got a kick out of was told to me by Gene Ligon who was sitting next to Flair when this happened. It was during the time that Flair was running a program with Jimmy Garvin. Week after week Flair would be out there talking about Precious riding Space Mountain. Well finally Garvin came back at him and said , You know Space Mountain is the shortest ride in the park and did you ever notice when you get off of it you always feel just a little bit sick? Gene told me that Flair said "that son or a bitch". I know it was quite a while before Flair spoke of Space Mountain again on television

There are other story’s that will get told over time but these are some of the memories I will have of Ric Flair as the years go by.

The picture with this article comes from a recent wrestling convention in Pennsylvania. This photo was taken by my fried Bob Mulrenin and sent to me by Tammy Sytch. It is Road Warrior Animal, Tammy “Sunny” Sytch and Scott Steiner.

This has been a piece of my mind

From The Desk of Garry D White

----I would like to personally thank Garry for these nice compliments. It is good to know there are guys out there that actually "get it" , when it comes to this site. Gene Jackson is a big reason why this site is successful. Thanks Garry!!

Let me first commend both yourself and Gene Jackson on the success of these shows. The last few months , you guys have really went the extra mile and got guys like Dundee, Derrick, Kevin, and Randy Hales on these shows and they have been great. I wanted to comment first on Hales - the wrestling business really needs a Randy Hales back and I hope that someday he will consider returning to the business. I loved his interviews and Gene did an excellent job delivering the right questions and Randy did an outstanding job delivering what I considered the right answers.

Now to today's show. I also believe Brent West was entirely off the mark. I drove all the guys from West Tenn to the show and may I add that was a experience in his own. We drove 7 hours in a blinding rain storm and 5 hours back. I was proud not only of Kevin but of Rocker and Derrick for standing up for what they believe in. In our case Dundee is just like a brother to me and a second Dad for Kevin. He has taught him so much about this business and for that I will always be grateful to Bill, and Kevin was telling the truth when he said he would do anything for Bill and I feel the same way.If you take both The Whites and Bill Dundee away from the wrestling business, we would still be friends.Bill is a class act and if Memphis Wrestling would consider what he has done for this business they would realize just what a impact he would be for Memphis TV, if used in the right place and thats booking. I have known Derrick for a long time and for someone to say that he cut a match short undoubtedly doesn't know as much about the business as he claims. Derrick King is the last person to fuck up a match, hell he's BY GOD Derrick King Dammit!!!!!!lol

You guys keep up the good work. By the way, I was one of the few guys that actually liked Gene Jackson's comedy show, just a few props for the big

Cheap Heat Radio is Ready!!

----I felt like this was one of our better shows as Gene Jackson jumped in there and ask the questions to Brent West. Thanks to Chris Rocker, Kevin White, Bill Dundee and Derrick King for joining us. Brent West made the statement a few times that he will never promote again...thank you Brent!! And you know, I know Dundee says he is enjoying himself working in the circus for the Brents, but it is real sad that a guy like Bill Dundee can not make a good enough living in the business -- there is not enough places to work to make money for a guy like him. That is just sad.

Friday at 10am cst C.H.R. presents 'What killed the UWL?'

Tune in tomorrow morning as I talk to Brent West and "Superstar" Bill Dundee about the quick demise of the United Wrestling League. What caused it? Is anyone to blame? What can be learned from it? Is Brent really done with promoting? We'll talk about all this and more in a special edition of Cheap Heat Radio. Do you have an opinion you want to express? A question? Call in at (347) 838-8101.

Another show note: There will be no Cheap Heat Radio next week, as I'll be taking the week of from the show. (Shooting the Shiznit will still air) Also, I've getting transferred to a new store in my shoot job and this will cause a major change up in my schedule and for a few weeks while we're opening the new store my time will be limited so for the rest of April and probably most of May there may be a lot less episodes of C.H.R. (from my end) until it all settles down, so I just wanted to address that before people try to say I'm going away or getting burnt out.

"Shooting the Shiznit" Is Ready!!

----A few problems at first with technical difficulties. An action packed show!! Brian Thompson joins in for the first segment with Brian Tramel which was suppose to be Tracy Smothers. Smothers cell phone service was unavailable. Brian & Brian talk about the recent controversy over Smothers health condition. Austin Lane joined us to talk about the ASWF Anniversary event with Austin vs Lawler and Nikki vs Traci Brooks. Our third guest was USWO's Mitch Ryder, who talked about being trained and working the Memphis style.

Memphis TV Ratings - How Bad Is It??

----How bad is it?? Take a look at the last three years of ratings for the 1st Quarter of the year. In the two year span they have lost 54% of their viewers. The main cause of this decrease was the change in the time slot from AM to PM. The loss in the 9000+ viewers this year can be contributed to the reruns.

----On an internet radio show in September, 2006 Corey Maclin made the statement that he could make money with a rating of 2.0 to 2.5. So, I guess Maclin is still making money and that is all that matters. I do know that he has to pretty much air repeats now, but can he at least try to put on a repackaged show or does the TV station prevent him from doing that?? A major point brought up to me by a few people is – why would a company that buys this station want to produce a wrestling show that draws this kind of ratings?? It is almost like Maclin is just shooting himself in the foot.

5.1 [85,624 viewers] – 2006
2.9 [48,623 viewers] – 2007
2.3 [39,048 viewers] - 2008

Coach’s Corner – Stan Lee and Robbie Douglas – Living the Wrestling Dream!!

----Melodramatic has it might sound both Stan Lee and Robbie Douglas are much like a lot of people reading this site. Each are following a different path as Lee has been in the business longer and his talent could get him anywhere. Robbie Douglas is working in his 2cnd year in the business – still learning. What makes the two guys as similar to anyone that laces a pair boots – they are living the dream of becoming wrestlers.

----The incident that happen is something that I actually wished I was not witness to or I wished didn’t happen. Saturday night during the main event at TLCW, Stan Lee threw a chair hitting Robbie Douglas with Douglas getting hardway. Douglas ended up with a 4 inch deep gash that took 5 staples and ended up costing him $1,000+ at the emergency room.

----The fight that happened after the event should have never happened. Douglas was upset. Who wouldn’t have been?? Lee apparently apologized and then Douglas kept “mouthing” and went to walk away. He was going out the door, when Lee apparently kicked him hard in the ass. Douglas then turned around and went running toward Lee. Douglas just dived taking Lee’s legs out from under and was on top hitting him. I witnessed Douglas going after Lee and that is when I went to stop it. [Like I could have done anything with these two guys; huh??] Best I could tell, Derrick King, AJ Bradley, Randy Hales and me were the ones trying to pull them apart, but they were actually apart before I got there. I am not even sure if Hales was involved, but he had blood all over his hands. It happened so quick, that it was hard to tell what was going on. They got broke up and Douglas left. DK and Hales had a talk with AJ and Lee. Douglas waited on AJ in the truck to leave.

----This is what I have always been told – if you do something against another worker on mistake, you are supposed to apologize. It is the rule – if you are genuinely sorry for what you did, and then all is forgiven and forgotten. On with the next match. I talked with Lee after the incident and I feel he was sorry for what he did and didn’t try to hurt Douglas intently. Douglas felt Lee was completely careless in throwing the chair with him on his all fours and unable to protect himself. Human emotions have Douglas being pissed and Lee kicking Douglas. None of that SHOULD have happened, but you shouldn’t “blame” either one for having a human reaction.

----The common argument for this is that “It is wrestling!! You are going to get hurt!!” I totally agree with that. Incidents that come to mind are Stan Lee getting his jaw broken by Kevin Thorn and the recent injury that Maxx Corbin suffered. I got dropped on my head on a chair by “Pure Destruction” [Cody/Brody Hawk] – I still have a scar and my neck does not move like it is supposed to move. [part of that accident was my fault] It happens and you have to just get on with it.

----My advice to Douglas was to just call and talk to Lee and just get on with it. Injuries are not something that we want to happen, but it DOES happen. I don’t feel as of right now that Douglas would want to work against Lee again. At least not right now. I don’t consider him a “bad guy” for not doing it. It is his choice. Nobody will be losing sleep over the incident other than Douglas. Maybe this business is just something Douglas should not be a part of. Douglas is a kid with raw talent that up until this incident was working at a promotion that would have taken him to the next level. It is sad though that at this level that when someone is hurt that they have to spend money out their own pocket that makes them question on whether they even want to lace up their boots again. I guess it is the business though and price of living the wrestling dream.

Tracy Smothers Story!!

----This story was posted on earlier today, but then it looks like it was removed?? I wanted to post this so everyone can get a look at the post. Strange stuff. CLICK HERE

Don't Forget!!

----Weekly Monday night Memphis Wrestling returns tonight with RPF [Reggie B Fine] Entertainment. I am looking for anyone that attends to send in a report along with estimated crowd size.

RassleResults: Russellmania!! MSW Russellville, AR 4.05.08 - 300+ In The Building!!

*"Cowboy" Bill Watts was introduced to the crowd and
he signed copies of his book, shook hands, and signed
8x10 pictures throughout the night.

*"The New Age Superstar" Gary Gram beat Kid Nikels
with the Gram Cracker Crunch (same as Fit Finlay's

*Matt Riviera defeated Greg King Jr. via subission to
the "Matticure" (a version of the camel clutch where he
straight jackets the arms of his opponent's face and
cranks back - the same move that Psycho does that is called
the "Straight-jacket".).

*Slam Shady beat Prince Al Farat (with General Skandor
Akbar) via disqualification...The General expressed
his hatred for Arkansas on the mic before the match.

*"Bruiser" Rick Sweetan (with Boyd Bradford) beat Mark
Johnson via submission to the Crippler Crossface.
Finish saw Johnson make his comeback and hit an Angle
Slam on Sweetan. Bradford put Johnson's foot on the
bottom rope. Johnson chased Bradford around rindside.
Once in the ring, Bradford threw off his hat, pulled
down his suspenders, and came off the ropes charging
at Bradford and going into an awesome powerslam.
Johnson then turned into the Crossface for the finish.

*Mid-South Tag Team Champions Reckage & Romance beat
The Young Guns (Eric Wayne & Eric Rose) when Riviera
pinned Wayne.

*International Champion The Atomic Dogg beat Shane
Rawls when Dogg caught Rawls with a powerslam when
Shane attemped a top rope cross body. Great match
that went all over the building! Rawls is impressive.
At 19 years old he is a legit 280 lbs., 6'4" and can
bench press 225 lbs. 25 times which is NFL level

----This was held at the LV Williamson Boys & Girls Club...
Attendance: 300-350...Good show that sent everyone home happy.

Club. Next event is April 12 in Ft. Smith, AR at the

"Picture Perfect" Sighting!!

----2006 RRO Tag Team of the Year – “Picture Perfect” [Jon Michael/Christian Jacobs] tags with Shawn Shultz against the “Naturals” [Chase Stevens/Andy Douglas] tagging with Jerry Lynn tomorrow night at the Fairgrounds in Nashville, TN. That should be a good match with all 6 guys being good to great workers. The show has the following listed: 6 man main event,Steve O vs Lani Kialoha, LT Falk vs Shane Smalls, John Davis vs Chris Phoenix, Steven Green vs Damien Payne and more.

RassleResults: TFW Tupelo, MS 4.04.08

At the start of the show Parental Advisory came out for their usual speechifying and crap. They demanded that TFW General manager, Randall "Axeman" Lewis tell them what match he had chosen to book for tonight's show. He told them that TFW Champion Izzy Rotten would defend the title against "Extreme" Brett Michaels, with the members of PA barred from ringside. PA laughed at that match choice. Axeman then told them he wanted to know which match they had chosen. They told him he would find out later. PA left the ring.
In the opening match, Fusion defeated Chris Chaos.
TFW Lightweight Champion LSD defeated Vega the Dragon to retain.
Next was the match set up by Parental Advisory. They decided that Studd, Tony Dabbs, Ryan SoFine, & Lil' Devil would face Kid-J in a 4-on-1 handicap match. Kid-J managed to hold them off for a while, but eventually they all jumped on him. Randall Lewis stopped the match and declared Kid-J the winner by DQ.
Neil "The Real Deal" Taylor defeated Devon Raynes.
The next match apparently was to have been J-Kid & "The Future" Chris Styles vs. Casanova Kid & Bonecrusher. Bonecrusher, however, did not come out of the back for the match when his music played. Casanova ended up facing Chris & J-Kid in a handicap match. The match was thrown out when PHAT Foundation (Justin Rhodes & Chris Fontaine) interfered and beat everyone down. The beating continued and in the front door on the arena came bonecrusher. He was bleeding and had a broken pair of handcuffs hanging from one wrist. He cleared the ring with a steel pipe. He then said he had been attacked with the steel pipe by PHAT Foundation prior to the match, and challenged PHAT Foundation to a match the following week, no DQ. That match was set up.
Mo Foundation (Curly Mo & G-Mo Money) w/Dirty Rell Mo defeated Dirty Sanchez & "Southern Thunder" Chris Kilgore.
The Freakshow (Chop the Clown & Vinny the Blade) & Josh Matthews defeated PHAT Foundation (Justin Rhodes & Chris Fontaine) & DC w/Diamond.
The main event was to have been TFW Champion Izzy Rotten defending against "Extreme" Brett Michaels, with Parental Advisory barred from ringside. The match barely got underway when Parental Advisory attacked Michaels. The referee threw the match out at that point. Fusion & Neil Taylor ran in to help Michaels and were also beaten down. the show ended with Michaels, Fusion, & Taylor laying in the ring. The last thing that happened was TFW GM Randall Lewis got the hell slapped out of him by "The Studd" Scott Porteau. He was angry. He just sat at the announcers table for a long time after the show was over with an angry look on his face.
Buff Bagwell returns to TFW THIS Friday night, April 11, 2008. This will be a great show, which will start off at 7:30 p.m. with a live band called Refuse the Fall. Wrestling starts at 8:00 p.m., with a great card that includes:
Vega the Dragon vs. "The Future" Chris Stiles. Vega answered the open challenge issued by Stiles several weeks ago. There is no love lost between these two.
G-Mo Money vs. J-Kid. G-Mo (from the Mo Foundation) has been attacking J-Kid for weeks every time J-Kid has a match. This is J-Kid's chance to take care of G-Mo Money once and for all.
DC vs. Josh Matthews. These two former partners absolutely despise each other. It has been only a few weeks since DC turned on Josh. This is a grudge match that promises to be one intense battle.
PHAT Foundation (Big Justin Rhodes & Chris Fontaine) w/Diamond will face Casanova Kid & Bonecrusher in a match with NO DQ! They can do whatever they want to each other, use whatever they want, and fight anywhere they want. The referee is only there to make the 3-count. That will be one wild match. There is no love lost between these two teams, and the bad blood is even worse because pf PHAT Foundations actions Friday night.
The 8-man tag team match for total control of TFW is also on the card. It will be Parental Advisory ("The Studd" Scott Porteau, "Bad Attitude" Tony Dabbs, Ryan SoFine, & Izzy Rotten) vs. Axeman's team of Neil "the Real Deal" Taylor, Fusion, "Extreme" Brett Michaels, and BUFF "THE STUFF" BAGWELL. Who will wind up in charge of TFW after this match? Will Randall Lewis continue to run things, or will Parental Advisory wreak havoc in TFW? You know this one is gonna be W-I-L-D!

West Family Folds Tent on UWL

----I hate to hear this, because it was giving some of the guys in the area a chance of being seen by a whole new audience. On the other hand, most of us were all wondering just how an internet PPV would work. For those that have talked about doing the same concept, they need to take a look at what happened here.

----The end of this post is also confusing?? They are done, but they are taking their gloves off?? Does that mean they are going to shoot on everyone that worked for them??

The West family has decided to suspend operations of the United Wrestling League and its internet PPV venture according to Brent West.

The UWL ran their second internet PPV event Friday night drew only 115 in the West's hometown of Cleveland, Tennessee. The PPV was scheduled for a two hour webscast for $11.95, but they ended up with only a 75 minutes of footage and reduced the price to $5.95.

Brent, his brother Rodney and their father, Ron were all involved in the UWL venture.

In addition, West said the family was giving up for good on promoting pro wrestling.

He said the family planned to use their website to market DVDs of old shows and express their opinions on pro wrestling.

"The West Family gloves are off for the first time ever, no one is safe. We have been kicked by many people now we start kicking back."

Arena Report: TLCW Ripley, TN 4.05.08 - Randy Hales and The Fight!!

----Well, hell froze over last night in Ripley, TN as Randy Hales returned to professional wrestling since leaving the business in 2001. Hales had noted on his 3rd Cheap Heat Radio appearance for the site that his interest in professional wrestling had returned. Hales had made first wrestling related appearance since 2001 for Gene Jackson on the 2.18.08 edition of Cheap Heat Radio. Gene commented last night on the message board, “Well, if nothing else ever becomes of Cheap Heat Radio, it can be said that it helped bring Randy Hales back to wrestling. He'll either thank me.......or hate me forever.”

----The show opened with Jimmy Tidwell coming out demanding to know who the “mystery guest” was going to be tonight. “Hot Topic” [Derrick King/Stan Lee] came out and DK promised they would know who the guest would be later in the show.

----“The Baron” Malkanvain beat Shannon Lee and Tim Alfonso in a handicap match. Not good – not bad. Baron has a great presence. Lee walked off on Alfonso and Baron beat Lee with his finisher. [*1/2]

----Ike Tucker beat Gladiator [without mask] by DQ, when Gladiator used his shield on him. The young guys need to watch the Tucker entrance and take note – it is so over with it. He has that connection with the crowd that so many babyfaces need to get over. Match started out good, but not much psychology. All moves were solid and fans were into it – because of Ike. It is scary what the response would have been if Ike would have took the basic beat down and comeback. [*]

----Dell Tucker/”The Golden Boy” Greg Anthony beat Reggie B Fine/Rockin Randy in solid match. Heat was on Reggie with a hot tag to Randy. Cody Melton interfered to cost Fine/Randy the match. [**]

----Albino Rhino destroyed ref Caleb in an angle. Rhino is carrying around the TLCW Title that he stole from Flash Flanagan.

----Chris O’Neal/Drew Donovan beat “The Asylum” [Pappy/Psycho] in an ok match. O’Neal is so over here. A little sloppy in the start, but was settled down with Pappy looking good with heat on O’Neal and hot tag to Drew. Psycho’s bumping looked a little “off” at times. Finish was good. [**]

----Derrick King/Stan Lee brings out Jimmy Tidwell with “Black Label Society” [Robbie Douglas/AJ Bradley] to announce the “mystery guest”. Randy Hales comes out and does an incredible interview. I felt at first the fans didn’t know what to think of Hales and some didn’t know who he was, but it didn’t take long after he talked on the mic. Hales is not a normal looking guy [I got a lot of room to talk; huh??]. He towers over everyone in the dressing room, but looks to weigh 120 lbs. I am guessing he weighs more, but he is a tall skinny guy. He was on the mic for about 5 minutes and the whole place was popping. He was over. This all goes back to things said by Jamie Dundee and Hales on Cheap Heat Radio about when someone is real – passionate about the business – then it comes across that way to the fans. After 10 minutes, Hales was the most over babyface of the promotion.

----“The Posse” [Simon Reed/Lil Chris] beat Idol Bane & Cody Melton. I did not see all of this bout, but Cody Melton took the pin. “Asylum” and Rocky Randy got involved in the match somehow.

----Flex beat Chris Rocker in a good solid match. This was the best bout of the night up to this bout. Perfect psychology with only about one “slipup” in the whole match. Flex pinned Rocker with a DVD to win the bout. [***]

----TLCW Tag Team Title Match: “Black Label Society” [AJ Bradley/Robbie Douglas] with Jimmy Tidwell vs “Hot Topic” [Derrick King/Stan Lee] with Randy Hales was declared no contest. AJ Bradley was flawless. He is so overlooked in this area. Robbie is still green in spots, but has a good look and people hate him. A good team. Hales was so “into it” outside the ring. Crowd was very hot during the whole match. The finish was all over the place. DK went for a superkick, but Gibson stopped him. Hales was getting punches in on William Gibson and Tidwell – the crowd was just so loud when he would swing his punches. He has these long skinny arms and he was winding them up – crowd was popping like crazy!! Bill Rush came in and ended up getting shitcanned along with Stan and DK. BLS/Tidwell ended up in the ring with Hales. They tore his shirt off [pictured] and whipped him with a belt. He had some bad whelps on this back. They tied Hales up in the ropes and Tidwell was going to stab him in the head with scissors, when DK made the save. DK did a great promo after the match almost in tears with Randy promising to come back next week to tag with them. [****] – solid execution, great storytelling and crowd was soooo hot!!


----160+ in the building...Referees Bill Rush and William Gibson are both super over. More over than some of the workers…Tidwell did a good job in his role – on the mic and at ringside…Guys that got good responses when coming out: Rush, Gibson, O’Neal, Posse, Lee, DK, Flex, Ike, Tidwell, and BLS. Guys that are legit OVER – Rush, Gibson, DK, Lee, Tidwell and BLS. Matches that got the best reactions – TGB/Tucker vs Fine/Randy and main event. I say all that because it felt like the other matches were just thrown together and had no meaning…”Posse” beat “Too Kool 2” [Flex/Tim Grind] last night in Covington. “Posse”, Flex, Dell Tucker and TGB all did double duties.


----Robbie Douglas and Stan Lee exchanged some blows last night after the main event. It was over the fact that Douglas got opened up hardway with a chair during the last part of the bout. It was over within minutes, but a lot can be said about the incident, especially pertaining to indy wrestling as a whole. I will be posting something either late tomorrow or Tuesday because I talked with Stan Lee last night and Robbie today.


----I am having some technical difficulties loading the video that I shot last night of the Hales interview. It is too large for youtube and problems going on Google, so I am actually loading it to the site server. I am going to try to have it up tomorrow afternoon sometime.

Michael St. John on Jerkin' The Curtain radio Monday April 7th at 10 PM CST

Long time wrestling announcer Michael St. John will be the special guest on Jerkin' The Curtain radio this coming Monday, April 7th, at 10 PM Central time. I had several requests to get Mr. St. John on the show, and he said he'd be glad to do it. We'll talk about what he's doing now with UWL and SAW, as well as his time in the USWA, with Nick Gulas, Music City Wrestling, The Heros of Wrestling PPV, Wrestle Birmingham, and his long time career in radio, plus whatever else comes up. Should be a good show. We'll take live callers, and ask e-mail questions on the air. Cya Monday night! Trent

TLCW Update!!!

----I just got home from the show and the main event was real good with tons of heat - great loud crowd!! Crowd was up to about 160+ people and they were there to see BLS vs "Hot Topic". Randy Hales cut a classic promo and did a tremendous job ringside as a manager. The low point of the evening was a fight backstage after the main event. I will have a full arena report and details of the whole show sometime later today.
