TUGBOAT & CHAZ TAYLOR vs. IRON SHEIK & NIKOLAI VOLKOFF /w/ Lou Albano
* The father son duo makes their debut against a team looking to make a statement and start their march back to title contention.
MARTY JANNETTY vs. STEVE CORINO /w/ Kevin Sullivan
* The 'King Of old School' is here and he's brought the darkness with him. God help us all for true evil has arrived.
THE DESTROYER & PAMPERO FIRPO vs. FLAMBOYANCE : GORGEOUS GEORGE & DALTON CASTLE /w/ Cherie Dupre & The Boys
* The immensely talented Destroyer is growing very unhappy with how he is being booked and has said if it doesn't change soon, he will change it for them. What does that mean, I'm sure I don't know.
LOU THESZ vs. GREG 'THE HAMMER' VALENTINE /w/ Brutus Beefcake
* Thesz has been humbled and is starting his way back to the top,growing in popularity as he does. Valentine is looking to knock him back down and get a measure of revenge for how his partner was humiliated last card.
ROADWARRIOR HAWK vs. JERRY LYNN
* Can Hawk even the score or is RVD & Lynn just better, collectively and singly? One thing's for sure, The RoadWarriors are definitely not use to being the underdogs.
CURT & LARRY 'THE AXE' HENNIG vs. THE BLONDE BOMBERS : 'PRETTY BOY' BOBBY HEENAN & G.W.F. HERITAGE CHAMPION 'THE' WORLD CHAMPION : 'THE NATURE BOY' BUDDY ROGERS
* The Axe makes his return to the ring, after the injury he suffered against Race, and teams with his son to face two men they can't stand. Both might be looking ahead to getting their hands on Race but looking past The Blonde Bombers is a grave mistake, Rogers can beat anyone and Heenan is a crafty sonofabitch.
G.W.F. NORTHAMERICAN CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE MATCH BOBO BRAZIL (C) vs. 'HACKSAW' JIM DUGGAN
* Friends face off over the NorthAmerican title and what will the fall out be? Can they remain friends after going toe to toe or will there be wedge driven between the two?
STEEL CAGE MATCH! BRUISER BRODY vs. 'SUPERFLY' JIMMY SNUKA
* The first ever Steel Cage match in this young fed's history, fitting it's these two in it. Will this end the feud or is it just a jumping off point? (pun intended)
Stoked for Corino's debut and wondering if the Darkness will make an appearance at his side...
Hoping to see the New F'n Show score a victory over Hawk to keep pace with his partner in singles action...
And you just can't go wrong with a showdown inside the cage... Especially between two loose cannons like Brody and Snuka...
Another exceptional lineup, my friend... Bring the pain!
Thanks as always for the kind words sir and you brilliance might have just named RVD and Lynn's team. I've been looking for a new team name since I remembered that the Hardy's and Lita called themselves Team extreme, plus it's over used anyway IMO. Cage matches are going to be used very sparingly in this fed for big feud blow offs, I want them to 'mean' something.

Plan on using the same approach... I remember 'back in the day' when even a no DQ match was a pretty rare occurrence... Something I want to emulate in my own Legends fed as well... And 'mean something' they will, my friend... Without a doubt!
IRON SHEIK & NIKOLAI VOLKOFF /w/ Lou Albano beat by PIN TUGBOAT 2 & CHAZ TAYLOR
* The Sheik put the big Tugboat down with a Sidewinder Suplex and the put him away with Belly To Belly Suplex.
STEVE CORINO 1 /w/ Kevin Sullivan pinned MARTY JANNETTY 3
* The Army Of Darkness entrance was an eerie spectacle to bold, hypnotic music and purplish lighting filled the arena. Sullivan's creepy antics along with Corino, in a hooded purple robe, walking like a zombie to the ring and the Pyscho Twins, Leva Bates & Courtney Rush, acting like a couple evil succubus - tempting and taunting the crowd. Jannetty put Corino down quick with a drop kick as Corino seemed still in a trance. Sullivan yelled something in a different tongue to Corino and the King Of Old School seemed to snap out of it and began to roll Jannetty. Two Old School Lariats put the rocker down and a Old School Suplex put him away.
"Bruise Brody........... I tried to help you and was even generous enough to make you an offer to join the army and you have so far ignored me. You have until the end of the night Bruiser Brody, you're either with us or....against us. I hope you make the right decision, for your sake."
THE DESTROYER & PAMPERO FIRPO 2 vs. FLAMBOYANCE : GORGEOUS GEORGE 3 & DALTON CASTLE 2 /w/ Cherie Dupre & The Boys
* Good solid match right up to the end when George sprayed Firpo in the eyes with his hairspray, but the ref saw it and called for the bell.
LOU THESZ pinned GREG 'THE HAMMER' VALENTINE /w/ Brutus Beefcake
* Thesz hit a QUICK Greco-Roman Back Drop for the FAST win!!! The back of Valentine's head rocked off the canvas in the impact and had to helped to the back by Beefcake. I'm no doctor but I'm betting he has a concussion. * Thesz is starting to build some momentum and his popularity is building as well with his new no nonsense rough style.
JERRY LYNN 2 pinned ROADWARRIOR HAWK 4
* Hawk dominated early but then....... Lynn EXPLODED!!! A TKO started it, followed by 3 Cradle Piledrivers and then by a top rope huracanrana and one more Cradle Piledriver for good measure!!! WOW!!!
CURT 2 & LARRY 'THE AXE' HENNIG beat by SUB THE BLONDE BOMBERS : 'PRETTY BOY' BOBBY HEENAN & G.W.F. HERITAGE CHAMPION 'THE' WORLD CHAMPION : 'THE NATURE BOY' BUDDY ROGERS
* Rogers dominated Curt and seemed to be cruising to an easy win but an over zealous Heenan wanted tagged in to be there hero. The Nature Boy reluctantly made the tag, Curt reversed his first move - locked in a Sleeper, the Axe cut off Rogers, and Bobby went beddy bye.
*Backstage Dibiase stops Duggan on his way to the ring.
"Relax..... I'm not here to fight.... I just want to wish you luck, after all we did use to be friends, remember the Rat Pack? Good times.... I also just wanted to tell you that Brazil has been talking behind your back, saying you don't deserve a shot at his title and how bad he's going to beat you...... Anyway, go get 'em tough guy." Pats Hacksaw on the back and walks off as Duggan has a confused look on his face.
G.W.F. NORTHAMERICAN CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE MATCH BOBO BRAZIL (C) pinned 'HACKSAW' JIM DUGGAN 4
* The champ used Hammer Punches and Coco Butts to pummel and ultimately pin the tough as nail Duggan. After the match Brazil offered his hand in sportsmanship but Duggan just ignored him, rolled out of the ring, grabbed his 2x4 and walked to the back.
Enjoyed the spectacle created by the arrival of Sullivan's Army... But, not as much as I enjoyed the big boot that Brody delivered to Sullivan's face... Snap!
Jerry Lynn and RVD both hold individual wins over the Road Warriors... Combine that with the technical decision over the reigning tag champs... And I think that equals imminent gold... Really looking forward to the title rematch...
Thesz continues to look stronger with each outing... And the pot stirring by DiBiase is nothing short of delicious... Looks like his words had a bit of an effect on Duggan too...
Great story development and the action is always top notch... Excellent work!
MARTY JANNETTY & THE BLUE MEANIE vs. IRON SHEIK & NIKOLAI VOLKOFF /w/ Lou Albano
* Sheik and Volkoff are growing impatient with Albano because they're not moving up the card and keep getting meaningless matches versus what they feel is sub par opponents. Can Albano change his teams fortune or will The Blue Rockers add insult to injury?
LOU THESZ vs. GORGEOUS GEORGE /w/ Cherie Dupre'
* Thesz is looking to make it three in a row and continue his rise to redemption, but standing in his way is the flamboyant one.
G.W.F. HERITAGE 'THE' WORLD HWT. CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE MATCH THE DESTROYER vs. 'NATURE BOY' BUDDY ROGERS (C)[/b] /w/ 'Pretty Boy' Bobby Heenan
* The masked sensation gets his wish to get better matches, will he make the most of it or will the 'Nature Boy' put him in his place?
CURT HENNIG vs. 'MACH MAN' RANDY SAVAGE /w/ Madison Rayne
* Hennig wants to prove he deserves a rematch for the World title by beating the #1 contender, but Savage is not taking the former champ lightly and wants to make a statement going into his title match next card in Denver.
BRUISER BRODY vs. STEVE CORINO /w/ Kevin Sullivan & The Psycho Twins
* Brody emphatically turned down Sullivan's offer to join the Army Of Darkness and the evil Taskmasters has promised to make him pay.
NORTHAMERICAN CHAMPION : BOBO BRAZIL & 'HACKSAW' JIM DUGGAN vs. MONEY INC. : 'THE MILLION DOLLAR MAN' TED DIBIASE & DIAMOND DALLAS PAGE
* Dibiase's mind games seem to be working but the match will tell the tale. Can Duggan and Brazil work as a team or will they implode and Money Inc. continue their climb to the top?
G.W.F. WORLD HWT. CHAMPIONSHIP NON-TITLE MATCH HARLEY RACE (C) vs. LARRY 'THE AXE' HENNIG
* Grudge match! The Axe wants to make Race pay for injuring him, Race just wants to rid himself of both annoying Hennigs.
G.W.F. WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE MATCH THE ROADWARRIORS : HAWK & ANIMAL (C) vs. THE WHOLE F'N SHOW : ROB VAN DAM & JERRY LYNN
* RVD & Lynn have owned the champs, both in tag and singles matches. Can the Warriors bounce back and be the dominate team they have been in the past or will we have new champions?
