I only did this because I forgot to have Lou Albano announce it happening during last episode's interview. That's my format, as I've used it with every Wrestling Challenge episode. This is a one-off, which is why I decided to dress it up with the grainiest Google images I could find, in keeping it contemporary.

Thursday, Week 2, July 1983

WWF Wrestling Challenge
Kliever National Guard Base
Portland, OR (North West)
300 spectators (sellout)

Ivan Putski & Tito Santana defeated Rene Goulet and Johnny Rodz in 4:37 when Ivan Putski defeated Johnny Rodz by pinfall with a Polish Hammer.

Masked Superstar defeated Mike Rotundo in 4:31 by pinfall with a Superstar Neckbreaker.

-------------------------

Pat Patterson interviews Ray Stevens and Ivan Koloff.
Stevens says that there are a lot of similarities between Ivan Koloff and Bruno Sammartino. They're both former World Champions, both famous for their strength and stamina, and they both use bear hugs to finish off their opponents. They both are immigrants to America, who are heroes to their people. They both were in action at Madison Square Garden, last month, and they both were able to lock on those legendary bear hugs. The men they faced may not have near as many similarities, but Ray Stevens and Bob Backlund have one thing in common: When they found themselves trapped in the bear hug, they went to the eyes to escape. Pat Patterson reminds everyone that Backlund has claimed that any contact with Koloff's eyes was accidental, but Stevens cuts him off, saying that they both went to the eyes, but the difference is that Backlund won't own up to it. There's another difference, because while Stevens only wanted to make Sammartino's vision blurry, Backlund dug in deep, seemingly careless as to whether the Russian Bear was ever able to see again. That's all that separates Stevens from the World Champion: Ray Stevens has human decency. But enough about Bob Backlund. He showed that he's a hypocrite, but he also showed that he's willing to do whatever it takes to win, and Koloff & Stevens respect that. Stevens wants to go back to what he'd said at the beginning, about how similar Ivan Koloff and Bruno Sammartino are. Koloff burst onto the scene a dozen years ago, defeated Sammartino for the World Championship at the height of Bruno's powers, but was shuffled off to the side as soon as WWF management was able to do so. They were scared, because Ivan Koloff looked so much like a younger, stronger version of Sammartino that they were worried he'd overshadow their golden boy. Ivan Koloff's career is a picture of what Bruno's would have been, if he hadn't been given every opportunity in the world, on a silver platter. Now, all these years later, Ivan Koloff is back to right those wrongs, and at the end of this month, when the World Wrestling Federation returns to Madison Square Garden, the Russian Bear is going to show WWF management, Bruno Sammartino, and the world that their worst fears were true. Ivan Koloff isn't just similar to Sammartino; he's better than him. He always has been, he always will be, and in the house that Bruno built, in the middle of Manhattan, on the biggest stage, under the brightest lights, Ivan Koloff is going to end Bruno Sammartino once and for all, and take his rightful place as the real Living Legend.

Bob Backlund defeated Dutch Mantell in 7:48 by submission with a Crossface Chickenwing.
Backlund comes set as the bell sounds, but Mantell takes forever locking up, pulling back several times from a knuckle lock – to tie his boots, get fanned by Bobby Jaggers on the outside, verify the rules with the referee, or to do some stretches – before finally getting things started. Backlund quickly gets a takedown, makes a few transitions, and comes away clean. Mantell complains that the champion pulled his hair. Tying up again, Backlund has his way with Mantell for a second time, with Dutch swearing that there was an eye rake. When they come together a third time, it looks to be a repeat of history, but Mantell blatantly gouges at Backlund's eye, then feigns blindness when the ref admonishes him. Once more they face each other, but before they can lock up, Dutch stomps Backlund's foot, pokes two fingers straight in the champions eyes, then proudly holds them up to the ref and the cameras as a peace sign. Mantell stomps away at the reeling Backlund, inflicting as much punishment as he can, as quick as he can. Backlund fights back to his feet, and runs the ropes to gather momentum, but Mantell sidesteps behind the referee, gives the man in stripes a shove, and uses that momentary lapse in authority to kick Backlund squarely between the legs. Backlund crumples in a heap, and Mantell pounces on top of him for a cover. Bobby Jaggers immediately slides into the ring, quickly counts 1-2-3 and both Kansas Jayhawks leap to their feet in celebration, with Jaggers signalling the timekeeper to ring the bell. The ref waves this off, of course, and ushers Jaggers out of the ring, with Mantell pleading the whole time for this to stand as the decision. Once things get back to normal, Bob Backlund is able to do what he does best, bringing it home with his patented Crossface Chicken Wing, as Dutch Mantell screams in submission before the move is even fully applied.
A*

Lord Alfred Hayes interviews The Madness: Randy Savage, George Steele, and Miss Elizabeth.
Hayes asks Randy Savage about Andre the Giant answering the open challenge at Madison Square Garden, but gets no response. He asks about the recent string of losses by The Madness, and how they plan to turn things around, but is met with silence. He says that Randy Savage asked for this time, so what is it that he wanted to talk about, but receives nothing in return but a blank stare. George Steele sniffs at Lord Alred's hair, and the Englishman backs away. Finally, Randy Savage speaks, saying that he didn't understand a word that was just said, and that it sounds like Hayes was speaking a different language. But not to worry, because EVERYBODY speaks a different language than Randy Savage, because the Macho Man speaks the language of pure machismo. He speaks the language of the Madness. He sees the truth behind the lies, and the world for what it really is. People ask about his recent history as if it happened only a few weeks ago, but they don't realize that months and months have passed since those events took place. While the rest of the world was frozen in time, the Madness marched on, forging and fusing elements in the lives of those invisible men who pull the strings of this world. The Madness is not bound by what you perceive to be reality. The Macho Man walks the yellow brick road to meet the Wizard, but isn't fooled by the illusion. He sees what lies behind the curtain. He sees what lies ahead, and what lies ahead for the Madness, this Saturday at the Deep South Extravaganza, is The Animal, George Steele, stepping into the ring with a man called Superstar. Well, stars explode and die, and out of their fusion furnaces are born bigger, stronger, richer elements that form into new stars, new worlds, new solar systems, new galaxies. That is the future of the Madness, to reform, reshape, rebuild, and make a brand new universe out of the ashes of the old. Oooooooo yeah!
B-

Jimmy Snuka defeated Jumbo Tsuruta in 11:45 by pinfall with a Superfly Splash.
Both men take it slow, from the beginning, jockeying for position, looking for openings, playing defence, and getting a feel for their opponent. Tsuruta obviously has a size and strength advantage, but Snuka is able to show that his speed and agility can both evade Jumbo's clutches, but also create opportunities by working the angles. After a few minutes of this, Tsuruta is able to hold and keep Snuka down on the mat, where he begins leaning on him, imposing his will, and maintaining control. Any time he goes for a finishing hold, though, Snuka rolls with the move into a pinning predicament. After a few close calls in quick succession, Tsuruta decides this strategy isn't working, and brings the match back to a standing position, to make it a striking game. He batters his opponent, but now on his feet, Snuka is able to use his quickness for more than just countering defence, evading a looping blow, and connecting with a roundhouse kick that drops Jumbo like a redwood. Superfly wastes no time following up, gathering momentum, and putting his lethal feet to good use, keeping the big man grounded. When Tsuruta shows signs of life, Snuka introduces the ropes and a bit of biting to his repertoire. Snuka keeps the pressure on, but Jumbo is able to put up just enough of a fight to keep Superfly from closing in on the kill. Just as this ability to keep going seems to be at its end, Tsuruta sits up, beckons Snuka to give him his best shot, absorbs a few hard kicks to the chest, then stands up straight through them. Vince McMahon comments that the Japanese Phenom has taken all he's going to take, on this day. Now possessed by that legendary Fighting Spirit, there is nothing Jimmy Snuka can do to stop him, as Jumbo tosses him around with ease, and flattens him with overhand chops. Lou Albano and the Wild Samoans scramble to interfere, but one by one they are sent tumbling from the apron, without having caused a meaningful distraction. With the crowd fully behind him, Tsuruta circles his prey, ready to deliver the decisive blow, but he suddenly stops when Freddie Blassie and Big John Studd walk out into the arena. Jumbo Tsuruta begins bellowing to Studd, beckoning him to step in the ring. As he gets worked up, Tsuruta is leveled from behind by a returning Iron Sheik wielding a steel pipe. The referee doesn't see this, as he'd been trying to get Studd & Blassie to return to the back. He turns back as Jimmy Snuka climbs to the top rope, and puts the nail in Tsuruta's coffin with a Superfly Splash.
A

As the Iron Sheik makes his way over to his stablemates, Gorilla Monsoon catches up to Freddie Blassie with a microphone. Monsoon is indignant at such a great main event being brought to an abrupt ending by Sheik's interference, but Blassie isn't at all apologetic. Yeah, he deployed his troops to cost Jumbo Shrimp the match, but let's have a little perspective here. The last time Iron Sheik was in the ring, the Orient's biggest fraud tried to end his career, visciously assaulting him with this very same steel pipe. Everyone's been clamouring to see Tsuruta step in the ring with the One True Giant, Big John Studd, but Classy Freddie Blassie sees that for what it truly is. Jumbo Tsuruta may be big in Japan, but here in the real world, he's trying to duck a fight with a REAL international superstar, the Terror from Tehran, the Iron Sheik. Blassie understands it; when you're the biggest dog in the yard, as Big John Studd is, everyone is gunning for you. That's why Tsuruta has to EARN the right to go one-on-one with the crown jewel of wrestling. Here's a reality check for Jimbo and every pencil-necked geek at home: The last time Tsuruta faced Iron Sheik, he lost. If he's got any guts in that big belly of his, he'll face Iron Sheik again this Saturday, at the Deep South Extravaganza. This time, it will be Tsuruta getting helped out of the arena. That's a promise, and a promise from Classy Freddie Blassie is something you can take to the bank.
B+

Ray Stevens is a filthy, FILTHy, FFFFFFFFFFFFFIIIIILTHY man.

Bobby B... Pulling an A*... in a squash match.

A Squash match where he's not even the prime focus of the match? WHAT THE FUCK?

The Jayhawks though. Such a dirty pair. Gonna be fun to watch them get smashed in the face for their antics.

Whatever The Maddness is on, it seems like a helluva drug.

And GODDAMN IT BLASSE. Fucking Shiek with a goddamned Iron Pipe. What an asshole.

I know it happened an eternity ago, but at my Boston show, last month, Sheik & Tsuruta faced each other in a singles match. Blassie passed a pipe to Sheik, but Tsuruta took it away from him, and went to fucking town on Sheik, earning a DQ. He came THIS close to getting stretchered out.

So, yeah, shit got real.

That Ray Stevens is conniving, trying to bring down Good ol' Bob like that.

"Dirty" Dutch though, he couldn't bring Bob down.

I ate up the Randy Savage promo, just ate it up.

Then that Main Event, I was loving it so until that dastardly steel pipe was swung by the even more dastardly Sheiky. I think Jumbo needs a jumbo sized order of help to get through that match. No way OTG ain't stickin' his big nose in that.

My Deep South is the South East, though. Memphis & Florida are two of only a handful of promotions with whom I can share talent, so it's a natural fit.

There you go, you've got all of Canada to work with. Which is accurate, as Vince Sr. had good ties with everyone up there. Then his dang son turned around and ate them all.

Yeah, I can get my hands on all those great Canadian talents who:

a) Don't already work for an American company, which most do, or
b) Aren't named Hart, because loyalty won't let them negotiate.

So, hurray for those possibilities....
