RassleResults: RWA Paragould, AR 6.27.08

Chris Steel beat the Official.
“Asylum” [Psycho/Arnez] beat the Southern Mafia(formerly TPT – Cody Murdock/Al Smith) and the team of Lethal and JD Carey.
Chief Quixote beat by DQ Zane Richards
“Crazy” Luke Graham Jr Beat Pappy of the Asylum
Feature Match. Rottn Randy with Lisa Ray and Jim "The Doc" from 107.1 The Train Beat Classy Melton Massy.
Main Event: Rik Burton RWA Heavyweight Champ beat HD Easy rider.

This was a Benefit for James and Jackie Godfrey the parents of Rottn Randy. Both have Cancer and all the proceeds will go to help with the medical expenses.

Frank Martin, owner of the RWA, started the show thanking all those who came out to support the family. He introduced Lisa Ray and Jim"The Doc" From the Train 107.1 the country station in Paragould that had helped promote the show by having Martin and Rottn Randy on the air several times to talk about the show. As they opened the show as guests announcers out comes the RAT Pack. Classy Melton Massy had warned or threaten Lisa Ray and Jim that it was his town and his ring and they would get hurt if they were caught in the ring. Later that week Martin promised the fans that if Melton got close to Lisa he would hold him while Lisa slapped the taste out of his mouth. The Rat Pack jumped on Jim and out came the babies from the dressing room. All the Pack powdered but Melton who was caught by Martin and just as promised to the fans Lisa slapped him silly. When out of no where Jim hit him with a Big Spear.... The fans went crazy and that set the mood for the night.

At intermission they gave away door prizes to the fans from all the businesses that donated them. At this point Melton Massy and Insane Zane Richards came out. Richards told Martin that there was a special guest in the building. It was an old man who was a wrestler at one time. Zane introduced his father who is a local legend HD Easy rider. HD came out and told Zane that he was disappointed in Zane, he taught him better than to run around with trash like Massy. Zane asked Martin to give his dad a match and Massy told him he would wrestle the Crowning Jewel of the Rat Pack RWA Heavyweight Champ Rik Burton. As Zane and Massy was leaving the ring they both jumped on HD.

The Main event was just that HD Easy rider and Rik Burton. Martin banned Massy from ringside much to the fans delight. However Zane came out and all through the match attacked his father with cheap shots. This family feud could really get ugly and will most likely continue in the RWA.

----There were over 100+ fans in the armory with 30+ from the Jonesboro area…The RWA ask me to thank all the fans who came out. Martin added, “In no way was this benefit a success because of anything that the RWA did. It was a success because of the offerings and kindness of the fans. Over $500 dollars was collected as of intermission.”

A Piece of My Mind June 28th 2008 by "The Big Cheese" Sal Corrente

I don’t know what it is that drives Vince McMahon to make the decisions that he does. I watched RAW Monday night, like everyone else who was watching it hoping my phone would ring. Alas, my phone did not ring and I am no richer than I was before it started. I finally enjoyed a night of RAW as it was a good program until the end that is. I was amazed that Vince felt he had to try some grand stand play to get out of giving away a million dollars a week. I found the whole thing, the McMahon way of thinking, as the reason why the WWE isn’t going to ever get to an even higher level than it has already achieved. I can think of a half a dozen things that could have been done to stop giving away the millions. They were never obligated to give the money away for any length of time to begin with. I am at least grateful that I got to see a good RAW again.

I have noticed many opinions in regard to the Jim Ross issue and how it was handled. As has been the case of Vince, it was handled as many things have been in that company are cold and callously. If I am Jim Ross I let emotions overcome me and I acted in an unprofessional way publicly. I can tell you when you are making the kind of money Jim Ross and or Jerry Lawler are making no one is going to have sympathy because you have to change riding partners anymore. The WWE has split up married partners and live-in partners before. You really think they aren’t going to break up Bert and Ernie if the need be? I understand that My Network TV wants Jim Ross on their program. It’s clear that they realize exceptional talent when they see it. I hope that now the emotions have settled down deep Jim Ross realizes that his move was a compliment and, even at this stage in his life, WWE needs him to help carry the company.

I am glad to see that Jim Ross appears to now be grabbing the bull by the horns and is going to make things work with my long time friend Mick Foley. If he ultimately cannot be happy in his new position then he should graciously walk away from this business and focus on his other ventures. He should do so proud of what he has accomplished and know that he is right up there with the greats of all time who have ever called this game. I can tell you for my money I will be a lot more inclined to watch Smackdown now that Jim and Mick are calling it.

I sometimes wonder if we will ever see a really great promo again. I remember the early days when I first started watching wrestling. It was great to listen to guys like Dusty Rhodes, Ole Anderson, Ric Flair and Tommy Rich cut promo’s. I don’t have as great memories of WWF promos as there weren’t all that many that stuck out in my mind. In NY the actions of someone seemed to do a lot more to draw the house than the words associated with it. In those days many of the emotional promo’s came from Bob Backlund who wasn’t the most compelling guy and could only be taken so seriously with that Howdy Doody face of his. A number of things that happened in WWF when I started watching took place in Roger’s Corner or Pipers Pit.

When you saw promo’s from guys who were just flat out brilliant, like Dusty Rhodes and Ole Anderson, you either wanted to love them or hate them. Will we ever see those kinds of promos again? I say "no we will not". If you don’t give the talent a chance to look into their heart and take their God given abilities and emotions they will never be able to give you that something special that, in many cases, filled arenas. If it wasn’t that it was their ability to BS with the best of them. Whatever it was, it came from within. Now it comes from an emotionless room with a bunch of people who just don’t get it.

I worked in the late nineties with many of the cast members of the original Andy Griffith Show. I tried to get them to improvise and they just couldn’t seem to do it. I said "listen, in wrestling this is easy, just give me a time and a topic, I can talk until I need to stop". They said "listen we read what other people write. We are actors". If they were in the WWE I don’t think they would be selling out arena’s either.

The photo with this article is of The Fantastics Bobby Fulton and Tommy Rogers at WrestleReunion 2. As a referee these guys were always so easy to work with. They were still in great shape when they showed up for our Reunions.

This has been a piece of my mind

RassleResults: EWP Alcoa, TN 6.26.08

Paid attendance of 103 tonight. 135 in building

*Edward Idol def. the debuting Shawn Streets via Perfectplex.

*Bobwyre & Squash Mountain def. Beau James & Wayne Adkins by disqualification as Spur ruled that Beau & Wayne refused to pin Bobwyre when he was clearly beaten. After the match, Beau challenged Spur to atake the ref shirt off and fight him. Promoter Ericules came in and said this was niot getting out of hand like last week. Beau ran down Ericules saying he was a coward too. He went on to say both he and Spur dreamed to be wrestlers but knew they were not tough or big enough to fight men like him. He then said how about a tag match. Ericules said no he was no wrestling just a promoter now and would stay that way. Beau told Spur he and Wayne had been ripped of 4 weeks in a row now by him and challenged him to tag team match next week with any partner of his choosing. Then Misty James came in the ring and told Beau to shut up and get out of the ring. She said he was embarrassing her and himself and that Spur is only doing his job. She went on to say Spur maybe little and not a wrestler but he had heart and guts to stand up to Beau. Spur said he would find a partner next week and fight Beau and Wayne. Misty said she would be Spur's partner "so she could kick that Squirrel's ass." (the fans call Adkins, Squirrel because he is always on Beaus nuts) she then slugged Adkins and laid him out. As Beau was checking on Adkins Spur kicked him with a low blow. The line of the whole thing Beau to Misty "Woman I don't know why I let you out of the bedroom"

*"The Showtime Kid" Jim Miller & "The Prodigy" Shane Andrews went to a double countout as they fought outside. Pretty Good fight all over the building. They even broke through part of the wall.

*As intermission was starting a backyard wrestler got into the ring and started running the ropes and flipping off the turnbuckles until Shane Williams came out and started beating the hell out of him going so far as to choke him out with his belt screaming for him to say I QUIT!!! treating him like he was Sigmon. Finally, Sigmon, Shawn Streets and Trooper T came out to protect the guy but Shane & Siggy got into to it finishing what was left of the broken wall that was up with Sigmon getting the upper hand and running Williams off. Shane has went from being the "King of Knoxville' to being a out of control nut case

*The RIP def. Trooper T via pinfall after hitting a torture rack back breaker.

*The Menace def. a debuting "J-Mac" Johnathan McMurray after killing him with a package piledriver. The crowd was red hot at least 90% of the match chanting for both guys. A lot of good action and high spots from both guy.

*EWP Champion Sigmon retained the EWP Championship over Donovan Daniels after delivering the Swandive Headbutt,

notes. Watch EWP every week Sat. afternoon 1:30 on Knoxville's CTV.....The TV commercial featuring the EWP stars for Style Girls runs several times a day on WBIR TV 10.....

"What Memphis Watches" by Ron Guidry

For a 2nd week in a row, the TV shows had a strong week of ratings. Smackdown was the 2nd most watched show in its 7pm-9pm primetime slot last Friday night. Smackdown was 2nd only to CBS’s show NUMB3RS by 1/10th of a point with SD pulling a 5.6 to NUMB3ERS’ 5.7. It will be interesting to see in the next few weeks what good ol’ J.R. and Triple H moving to Smackdown will do to those already great ratings.

TNA’s Impact held steady this week keeping the same rating as last week. One thing I noticed is that Impact’s numbers dropped in the last quarter hour of the 2nd hour. That tells me that people were not interested in the main event of Christian/AJ Styles vs. Team 3D. It also tells me that they were very interested in the World X Cup matches and Awesome Kong. 2 things that are fresh and very entertaining.

RAW, in my opinion, had another strong week. While the final ratings were down from last week, they drew great numbers for the 3-hour show. The ratings went up with each hour and that’s what you want to see in your ratings. I thought the show was one of the better shows that WWE has put together this year. It was one of those “Anything can happen” shows. Seriously, who would have guessed that Jim Ross and Triple H would have moved to Smackdown. The numbers showed that Memphis liked this week’s RAW too.

There were no ratings for the Impact replay on Saturday because of the UFC marathon that Spike ran that day. UFC’s highest hour that day was from 4-5pm when it drew a 1.5 and it’s highest quarter hour was from 9:30-:45 when it drew a 1.8 . You can draw your own opinions here.

Another good week for Sanford and Son and The Andy Griffith Show that now runs on Saturday night in the old Memphis Wrestling time slot. The shows drew a 4.4 [73,872 viewers] and 3.2 [53,725 viewers] respectively. An odd story, Saturday afternoon I was hanging with a friend who grew up in Georgia. We got to talking about wrestling and he said he doesn’t watch it much anymore. He said he loved the wrestling he grew up watching in Georgia (TBS stuff) and the stuff now was boring to him. As I was taking him back home Saturday night he said, and I quote, “Guess I’m gonna watch Sanford and Son and Andy Griffith and hit the sack”. I can’t make this stuff up!

If you have any questions or comments just email me at:

Note: The ratings for RAW this week is listed as 3 separate hours. I will round off, to the highest number, the averages of all 3 hours for the final rating.

Thanks and enjoy!!!

Big Angle for "4th at The Forest" !!!

----“4th In The Forest” this year at Craighead Forest will feature the main event of Derrick King vs Brandon Baxter. Memphis Wrestling mainstay Randy Hales, who made his first wrestling appearance this year since retiring from the business in 2001, helped shoot an angle this past week in Jonesboro, AR.

----Monday morning Randy Hales’ 12 year old great nephew Corban [pictured with Baxter] called KISSFM [Jonesboro radio station that BB works at] and requested a song. They asked his name and when he told them who he was. Brandon asked if he was my nephew. Brandon then said he heard I was mad at him and asked Corban if I ever said anything about him. Corban said one day that Randy got mad because he said BB was cool. Brandon then invited him for a tour of the studio and also invited him to watch him wrestle at the “4th at the Forest” show. Fifteen minutes later Hales called and had a confrontation. Hales talked about BB being ungrateful, had conned the entire town and he would have let it go, but now was brainwashing my nephew. Hales accused him of hand picking his opponents for 4th and dared him to let me pick his opponent. Hales then picked Derrick King. Hales said he would be at the show to watch DK beat him then he would finish the job. He then hung up on them. They then said I was jealous of how popular BB is and also said I was crazy.

----Tuesday the business manager of KISSFM saying my lawyer was demanding equal time for me to respond to those slanderous comments.

----Wednesday Hales did a fired up interview similar to what he said on the “Cheap Heat Radio” show with Gene Jackson. He claimed credit for his success and made the threat to end it all on his biggest stage. Baxter is scheduled to do some kind of response on Thursday morning.

"Flashback" June 25, 1984 by Mark James

Well, researching this week’s flashback started off innocently enough. I was looking back at this week during 1984. The main event was Jerry Lawler & Austin Idol in a classic match against the National Tag Team Champions, the Road Warriors. Seeing the card put a smile on my face. I was as huge a mark for the Warriors as I was for Lawler & Idol.

You look elsewhere on the card, you’ve got the Fabs returning, (Keirn & Lane), as well as a big match between the Rock n Roll Express up against Randy Savage & Lanny Poffo. I could be wrong but I think this may be the match where Randy piledrove Ricky Morton on a table. Don’t forget Handsome Jimmy and the New Fabulous Ones, (Tommy Rich & Eddie Gilbert). Lots of big local names on the card and the attendance numbers were great as well (10,032).

What caught my eye next happened when I was remembering Eddie Gilbert. To be honest, it made me a little sad (him not being around anymore). As I looked over the card, I realized that Hawk was gone now as well. Moving down the list and there’s Rick Rude’s name. When you get to the Jim Niedhart vs Dusty Rhodes match, I had to look at the results because I didn’t remember it. Big Dust couldn’t make it and Plowboy (Stan) Frazier took his spot.

If you lost count, that’s four wrestlers on this card that are no longer with us. Out of curiosity, I jumped forward a year.

You’ll notice quickly that this card has similar results. There’s an additional 6 different wrestlers that aren’t here anymore, (Bruiser Brody, Billy Travis, Tojo Yamamoto, Lord Jonathan Boyd, Kareem Muhammad/Ray Candy & Jay Youngblood).

It’s seems that life outside the ring is harder on the boys than inside it. I was reading Downtown Bruno’s biography this past weekend, and in all the times he nearly died, (over the past 20 years), none were in the ring.

Growing up in the late 1970s, it seemed that wrestler’s deaths were few and far between. When Sam Bass died in a car wreck (1976), it was a big deal to me and my friends. Looking back today, it’s easy to see that in the past 15-20 years, things have changed, for the worse. Fewer wrestlers are reaching the age of 45. There isn’t enough space on this page to list all the young talent that left us way to soon. From injuries, to addictions, to mental issues, etc, they all are taking their toll.

I don’t have the answers, though I wish I did. If there was a way to have Eddie Gilbert still booking territories, or if I could hear Hawk say “What a rush!”, just one more time. I can only imagine the size of the smile on my face if I could see just one more kendo stick whack from Tojo. The days of old are gone, so are a lot of the boys. I miss them. They thought they were supermen and when they were in the ring they were. Outside the ring, they were just human, like all of us.

RassleResults: RWA Jonesboro, AR 6.21.08

Show started as Frank Martin recapping last week’s show letting everyone know that Rik Burton is in fact the RWA Heavyweight Champion. There was a table with a cake on it in the middle of the ring so Martin went right to the action. Out came “The Rat Pack” -- Burton, Steel, Richards,Players with Classy Meltin Massy. It was a celebration for Burton winning the RWA Belt. As the celebration got on the way POB and TPT (Trailer Park Trash) came through the front door surprising Massy and smashing his face in the cake. Crowd got a real kick out of that.

----Tim Daniels beat The Official…PP3/Chris Steel beat The “Leprechauns” [Lucky/Lethal]…”Insane” Zane Richards beat “Big Indian” Quixote…”Crazy” Luke Graham JR beat JD Cary….Slingblade/TPT/Sillas beat ”Asylum” [Psycho/Pappy] & “Natural Born Players” [Southside Brawler/Pimptacular]…Rik Burton beat Ron Rage

At intermission as Martin was drawing tickets for the gifts they give away each night. Raven Rage [pictured], Ron Rage's wife was drawing the ticket. Burton and Massy came out and Burton proceeded to tell Raven that the Leprechauns were not the only midget in the building and when she was ready for a real man to let him know. On second thought I will just show you and tried to kiss Raven. Ron Rage hit the ring and Burton powdered. Ron challenged Burton to a match but Martin reminded him that he had a tag match later in the evening. Rage convinced Martin to give him the match and Martin told the POB he would spend the money and get Sling Blade a partner he would not be disappointed in. In that tag match Martin brought out Silas. Silas won the match by choke slamming Arneze off the second rope.

Rik Burton and Ron Rage was having a good match and when the official was not looking Chris Steel came in and chopped blocked Rage taking out is right knee. Burton got the win by using the ropes.

The most amusing match of the night was the tag match between Chris Steel and PP3 and The Leprechauns. Steel thought he was wrestling the one Leprechaun. Without a partner Martin was kind enough to get PP3 to be Steel’s partner. PP3 was so excited to be wrestling the Leprechauns he kept helping them. Steel finally got the win.

----The fans enjoyed all the matches in the air conditioned building…This was the longest show the RWA has had. It lasted till 930 [starts at 7:00 PM]and the fans loved every minute. There was 100+ in the building to see the show….I love the Rage vs Burton angle with Rage’s wife. Burton will get some heat with that.

Join them in PRIME TIME on Thursday at 8:00 PM!!

SIE 's Side of the Story.....

----I did finally get a letter from SIE promoter Shawn Reed. I thought it was only fair that I represented his side of the story. The only thing that was different in their story and the story we posted was the time that they were called about the ring. I was told they were called earlier in the day. Here is some of what Shawn sent to RRO.

"We got the call about 5:30, so we started looking for another ring, could not find one. So at 7:45 we canceled the show. All the talent that was booked either showed up or were on there way....and all of them were paid and the ones that were on there way will be paid this weekend."

Showtime Allstar Wrestling - Episode 49

Showtime Allstar Wrestling – Episode 49
Airing June 14, 2008 on ION Network affiliate WNPX 28 in Nashville

For a comprehensive review of Nashville’s weekly wrestling TV shows, SAW and NWA Main Event, check out [url=]Jerkin’ the Curtain radio[/url] with Trent Van Drisse and Tommy Stewart.

Michael St. John and Reno Riggins opened the show. One thing for sure, it was going to be BIG. MSJ used that adjective no less than five times to describe the upcoming events, which included the return of the Naturals and a BIG six man tag: Tribal Nation & Drew Haskins vs. the A-Team.

(1) The Naturals (Chase Stevens & Andy Douglas) beat the Missouri Bad Boys (Missouri Renegade & Mark Southern with Cash McCoy) in 4:26. MSJ said the fans in the SAW mill were going out their minds. Naturals looked invincible early with a double lariat by Stevens, a big combo move and high knee by Douglas. MOBB put heat on Douglas. McCoy got involved and the announcers ripped on his gaudy money sports coat. St. John said his friend, Larry Matysik told him MOBB were a team to be reckoned with. Douglas turned thing around with a hangman neckbreaker on Southern. Steven took the hot tag and sent Renegade over the top with a wicked full speed lariat. Natural Disaster on Southern for the pin by Stevens.

MSJ did a quickie generic interview with the Naturals. Stevens said they were back in SAW to stay. Douglas said they were there to make an impact.

Commissioner Freddie Morton addressed the controversy surrounding the SAW Television Title. Morton said two top contenders, Rob Roy McCoy and Rick Santel, had complained about the “luck of the draw” system for determining title shots, and a third, Kid Kash had attacked champion Damian Adams resulting in a role reversal wherein the champion challenged the challenger. Bottom line: the luck of the draw was history. The SAW BOD had determined that Kash would get the next title shot in today’s main event. Morton explained that SAW had grown from cable access to a local network affiliate and international syndication. Therefore, at SAW’s first anniversary show in three weeks, the title would be renamed the SAW International Championship and the champion would be presented with a new belt. At that point, a new system would be put into effect for determining title challengers. Each week, the BOD would post a list of the top ten challengers at A fan vote would then determine the top three challengers. The BOD would select one of those three for the next title shot.

(2) Sean Casey (with the Freak Squad) beat Cassidy Riley in 3:20. Casey had “Sexy Lexi” Pillman, Tian and two clueless hotties in his corner for a grand total of four women in various states of undress. The announce team referenced an incident reflecting dissension between Sean and Lexi that the viewers did not see. Riley nailed his handstand back elbow, a high backdrop and pair of lariats. Casey bailed for a little loving from Lexi. Riley brought Casey back in the hard way, but Casey hooked the ropes to block Riley’s DDT finisher. Casey was all about the shortcuts. He missed with a ridiculous razzle dazzle fist drop, but connected with a serious spinebuster. Lexi went over to make goo-goo eyes at Riley, and Casey told her to get back where she belonged. Riley rolled an unsuspecting Casey up for the three count. Casey lectured Pillman on their way out.

UP NEXT…the bumper showed Bruno Davis twitching like he had a seriously bad case of Tourette’s. Davis said he was being well paid to take out TJ Harley, but the money was irrelevant because he was savoring the chance to break Harley’s limbs.

(3) TJ Harley beat Bruno Davis in 3:20. Harley met Davis on the ramp and it was on. Davis’ barking and maniacal intensity prompted the announce team to conjure up the names of Mad Dog Vachon, Mad Dog Buzz Sawyer, Bruiser Brody and The Sheik. Davis went right to work on Harley’s heavily bandage arm, the one he injured last week with his hickory stick. MSJ said this feud was a carryover from Calgary Stampede. With Harley laying on the apron, Davis delivered a pair of double stomps to the gut. Davis then continued the beatdown inside the ring. Davis tried to use the hickory stick, but Harley ducked and smashed the stick into Davis’ head with a forearm shot for the 1-2-3.

MSJ got a word with Harley, who was selling the arm injury huge. Harley said Davis didn't have the brains to be doing this stuff on his own (I guess TJ didn’t see the bumper). “Somebody’s got the cheese in front of Bruno Davis, and I’m going to find out who it is.”

Riggins was on location at Centennial Park with the Dream Team. Riggins said he had gotten a lot of nasty emails since he fired of Boogie and Andrews. Riggins said it was the toughest thing he ever had in 20 years in the business. Riggins said they were doing the interview at a neutral site since Dream Team was banned from the SAW mill. Boogie said his first reaction was to want to sock Reno in the jaw, but he respected Reno, and recognized that Riggins had a company to run, even though he disagreed with his decision. Boogie laid the blame on Paul Adams and A-Team because they knew what they were doing.

What do you do? What do you tell the honest people in the world? How do you explain to them that you stand up for something. For what? To get knocked back down?

Andrews said Dream Team had helped build the company to worldwide status, and they would unable to reap the benefits. Andrews said he never had so much as a speeding ticket and now he couldn’t get a job because he had a criminal record. Riggins asked them what was next. Boogie said the future was unclear. He allowed they might be able to work for some fly-by-night promoters that had criminal records themselves. Andrews said SAW was their home, and they might file an appeal through Miss Boogie. Miss Boogie said she most definitely wanted to sit down with the SAW BOD. “These are my boys. I mean if they’re not here, I really don’t think I’m interested in being here.”

(4) The A-Team (Hammerjack & Matt Dillinger & Ric Santel with Paul Adams) defeated Tribal Nation (Lennox Lightfoot & Indian Outlaw) & Drew Haskins in 8:33. Haskins held his own with Dillinger for a couple of minutes before A-Team trapped him in their corner. A fierce beating ensued. Riggins said he agreed with A-Team’s strategy of taking advantage of the weak link. He likened the way they cut off the ring to the Andersons. Outlaw had to save after a sitout slam by Hammerjack. Haskins got planted with a DDT, and Lightfoot broke up that pin. A clash of lariat left both men down. Lightfoot on fire with dropkicks and spinwheel kicks. Tribal Nation took Hammerjack out with a double tomahawk chop. Ditto for Santel with a double dropkick. Lightfoot zeroed in on Dillinger. He pulled ref Kurt Herron into the path of Lightfoot’s springboard chop. Tribal Nation (kinda) hit the Totem Pole Splash on Dillinger, but no ref to count. Haskins ended up on the receiving end of a low blow from Dillinger. TVA hit the guillotine leg drop/side slam on Haskins. Hammerjack covered, and Dillinger swung Herron into position for the count.

(5) Damian Adams and Kid Kash went to a TV time limit draw (5:10). MSJ rung the bell as Adams slid into the ring. Kash stomped the s*** out of him. Reno found Kash’s sadistic tactics disgusting. Damian fired back with right hands and rained down the 10 punches. Kash scooted out of the ring to escape Damian’s bicycle kick. Kash lured Damian out so he could cut him off on the reentry. After eating a barrage of right hands, Kash bailed again. Kash shoved a fan legit in frustration. The security guy was smirking. Damian was all over Kash. Back inside, Kash offered a handshake. This time, Damian didn’t fall for it (thank God). Damian rocked Kash with another series of rights. Kash ate an elbow charging in, and Damian bounced Kash’s head off of all four turnbuckles. As the time limit expired, Kash sent Damian’s head into the turnbuckle with a dropkick to the shin. Damian clutched at his neck.

Kash was like a man possessed on Damian’s neck. He shoved the ref down. Riggins came to ringside to break it up, and Kash shoved him down as well. Cut to a shot of Reno down on the floor. Kash gave Damian the brainbuster. Kash had Damian mounted and continued to pound on his head, as SAW went to black.

Closing Thoughts: Another strong episode for storyline development, which is almost a given of late. There was a noticeable improvement in the intensity and quality of action in the ring. It’s no wonder when you look at the talent – Kash, Riley, Naturals – that has come on board in recent weeks. Naturals looked highly motivated in their first match back in SAW, and the fans were into them. They would be a lock to become the number on babyface team, except for the fact that Douglas appeared on the NWA Main Event television show (also on ION) stating he had split with Stevens a week before this show aired. MOBB were there to do the job. Period. The changes Morton announced regarding the SAW Championship are all for the good. I like the way they got across the idea of multiple quality challengers clamoring for a shot. I very much like that they are sticking with one singles title. It can’t hurt to try to draw some traffic to the website, though I don’t think the roster is deep enough for a top 10 list. Casey/Riley was very good for the time allotted. It will be interesting to see where they go with Lexi’s wandering eye. She projects something interesting on camera beyond the risqué outfit. The mystery of the manipulator behind Davis the maniac is decent undercard fare. Seeing what they did with Davis this week, however, only made it weirder that they did the fan thing last week. The on location interview with Dream Team was pretty f'n brilliant. What viewer can’t identify with “let no good deed go unpunished” angle? Stunningly good VQ in that segment. The stuff about not being able to get a job with a criminal record was a bit much. If it was that tough, there would be a lot more out of work wrestlers. Haskins was perfectly cast in the six man. I was surprised that Santel wasn’t the one to pin him. Kash/Damian was just right for a first meeting. The draw was telegraphed, since they never, ever do a TV time limit match. Kash sold big and acted like a conniving chickenshit. Damian was smart and aggressive. The postmatch built heat for a rematch. I found little to complain about with this week’s show.

RassleResults: Memphis Wrestling Superstars 6.20.08 Detailed Report

----Below is a report that was sent in late last night. It is pretty much a kayfabe report, but it does give details.

Match 1: The Gladiator v/s Ty Hamilton
Good opening contest with Hamilton taking early offense on The Gladiator including a nice body press over the top rope to the floor. The Gladiator was able to catch Hamilton off guard, putting a beating on Hamilton and scoring a few near falls in the process. Hamilton battled back and got The Gladiator off his feet, but was unable to connect with a frog splash. As the referee checked on the downed Hamilton, The Gladiator removed his metal armband and clocked Hamilton with it behind the referee’s back. This allowed The Gladiator to pick up the pinfall and the win.
Winner: The Gladiator

Match 2: Flame and The Grappler v/s The Albino Rhino and Blitz
The early parts of this match saw The Albino Rhino and Blitz on offense until Flame and The Grappler were able to isolate The Albino Rhino for several minutes of double team maneuvers and swap outs. A hot tag to Blitz saw him dominate both Flame and The Grappler until The Albino Rhino paired off with Flame, allowing Blitz to hit a spinning side slam on The Grappler for the victory.
Winners: The Albino Rhino and Blitz

Match 3: “Southern Sensation” Cody Melton w/ “Mr. Big Stuff” Garry White [pictured above] v/s Blitz
This match gave us our first look at a member of “Big Stuff Inc.” for the night, as Cody Melton made his way to ringside with “Mr. Big Stuff” Garry White. Blitz then made his way to ringside, running through a banner much like a football team does at the start of any big game. The early moments of this match saw Blitz using his size and strength advantage over Melton. Melton was able to gain control of the match catching Blitz and hanging him throat first over the top rope. Melton attempted to keep Blitz grounded, relying on neck and leg holds in an attempt to make Blitz submit. Blitz rallied back and hit his spinning side slam, but was unable to make a cover. The end of this match saw Blitz hit a huge should tackle, but before he could go for the cover, Mr. White jumped up on the ring apron, getting the attention of both the referee and Blitz. During all the commotion, Melton retrieved the football helmet of Blitz, knocking him out cold while the referee attempted to get Mr. White off the ring apron. The referee turned around to see Melton crawling over to make the pin on Blitz.
Winner: “Southern Sensation” Cody Melton w/ “Mr. Big Stuff” Garry White

Match 4: “5 Starr” Dustin Starr w/ Su Yung v/s “Selmer’s Own” Michael Gilbert
This match saw the second member of “Big Stuff Inc”, Dustin Starr taking on local police officer and crowd favorite, Michael Gilbert. Gilbert was able to take the early advantage over Starr, but Starr used his experience edge and his valet to turn the tide. Gilbert was able to dig down deep and battle back, causing Starr to call for assistance from Su Yung. Yung threw Starr a chain, but as Starr swung, Gilbert was able to duck and roll up Starr, getting the pinfall. After the match, Yung got in the face of Gilbert, screaming at and hitting the local favorite. Gilbert then left the ring and returned with his handcuffs and baton. As both referees warned Gilbert of the consequences of hitting Yung, Gilbert was attacked from behind by another member of “Big Stuff Inc”, Cody Melton. Mr. White then made his way to ringside. Both referees attempted to stop the attack, but were no match for Dustin Starr, Cody Melton, Mr. White, and Su Yung. The 4-on-1 assault continued, as Starr, Melton, Yung, and White took turns using the baton on a handcuffed Michael Gilbert until “Grandmaster Sexay” Brian Christopher emerged from the locker room wielding a crowbar. Christopher made quick work, clearing the ring of “Big Stuff Inc.” with the exception of Mr. White, who couldn’t manage to escape as quickly as his cohorts. Mr. White attempted a truce with Christopher, extending his hand. Christopher ignored the gesture and laid out Mr. White with a solid punch before checking on the condition of our hometown hero.
Winner: Michael Gilbert

Match 5: “The New Nature Boy” Kevin White w/ Su Yung v/s Jerry “The King” Lawler
With the result of the previous match, Mr. White was nowhere to be found for the start of this contest. Opening moments of the match saw “The King” out wrestle Kevin White, causing “The New Nature Boy” to resort to cheating to get the advantage over Lawler. Mr. White made his way to ringside later in the match, assisting Su Yung in keeping the advantage to the side of their cohort. “The King” was able to rally back from the assault of all three and appeared to be ready to finish off White, when Su Yung and Mr. White entered the ring, causing the disqualification of Kevin White. As Kevin White, Mr. White and Su Yung celebrated their beat down on Lawler, “The King” retaliated and cleared the ring brandishing a steel chair. As the members of “Big Stuff Inc.” left the ringside area, “The King” celebrated his victory with the local fans.
Winner: Jerry “The King” Lawler via disqualification

Match 6: “Dangerous “Doug Gilbert v/s “Grandmaster Sexay” Brian Christopher
Before the match got under way, Christopher was presented with an award recognizing the time he had dedicated helping a local family that has suffered a tragedy. As soon as the award was presented, Doug Gilbert attacked Christopher from behind with his baseball bat and then proceeded to break the award over Christopher’s head, causing the ring to be filled with glass. Gilbert then took the battle outside the ring; throwing Christopher into ringside chairs, tables, and using anything he could get his hands on as a weapon. The match finally made its way back to the ring, where Christopher was able to mount a brief offense, before being caught in a sleeper hold by Gilbert. Christopher countered the sleeper hold with a jawbreaker and climbed to the top rope. As he dove off with a double axe handle, Gilbert pulled the referee in, causing Christopher to hit the ref. Gilbert picked up the referee and threw him out of the ring, then retrieved a chain he had hidden. Gilbert laid out Christopher with a chain shot, but there was no referee to count. As Gilbert signaled for a referee from the back, he dropped both knees onto the shoulders of Christopher. As the other referee made his way into the ring, Christopher countered Gilbert into a rollup to score the victory. After the match, Brian Christopher challenged Doug Gilbert to a rematch at the next show, but the challenge went unanswered.
Winner: Grandmaster Sexay” Brian Christopher

Jerkin' The Curtain NWA Main Event & SAW TV reviews Monday, June 23rd @ 10 PM CST.

Listen in this Monday night, June 23rd, at 10 central time as Tommy Stewart and I will again review and recap the newest episodes of NWA Main Event & SAW TV. This is of course assuming Tommy has his TiVo issues solved(again)! These will be the reviews for the shows that aired on Ion in Nashville, channel 17 on Comcast, Saturday, June 21st at 8 am and noon. We'll give our unbiased opinions of both shows, and declare a "winner" for the week. If you missed last weeks show, the archive is available of course, but here's the results.

Tommy Stewart:
NWA Main Event= Thumbs down
SAW= Tommy didn't see the show due to his touchy TiVo

NWA Main Event= Low, low, low thumbs in the middle
SAW= Upper thumbs in the middle
I am declaring SAW the winner for the week, but with an "asterisk" for now as Tommy didn't see the show. If/when Krull gets the show online, and Tommy gets to see it, he'll put his rating for it up on the board. But I am extremely confident, like 99.9% sure, he too will name SAW the winner for this week, it really wasn't close this week, SAW is an easy winner in my book. Four J productions needs to step it up! Cya Monday night. Trent Van Drisse
