NWA National Television Champion: Terry Taylor (8/22/1980)

We start the clip with Dusty Rhodes talking with Gordon Solie. Dusty thinks he’s speaking about Little Richard when in fact “All Shook Up” is an Elvis song. All that aside, Ole Anderson is all shook up and that Bill Watts and his “mystery partner” Uvalde Slim (which if you’ll recall from the last review is just Dusty Rhodes under a mask) will be in the Omni on Friday September 5 where the loser of the fall must leave the state of Georgia. Dusty mentions there’s still Ole fans out there, but he’s outta here starting Friday night, according to the Dream. Read the rest of this entry

We start the clip with Kevin Sullivan and Stan Hansen talking with Gordon Solie. Hansen says he can’t trust anybody around here and tells the good guys that he’s going to start looking out for himself. When Hansen mentions Ole and Gene Anderson, they come over and bully him into the ring. As Kevin Sullivan goes to help Stan, the Great Mephisto shows up and grabs Sullivan as they begin brawling. Mark Lewin runs over and grabs Sullivan from behind and slaps on the SINGAPORE SLEEPERHOLD. Some jabronis try and help out. Ole Anderson goes to help Mephisto and Lewin while Hansen beats up Gene.
