Default [WCW 1991] Bischoff Era Begins Early

News And Notes
Quote:
-Ted Turner Promotions, also known as World Championship Wrestling, is under new management as of January 1, 1991. Former Executive Vice President, Jim Herd, has been reassigned to another division within Turner Enterprises. Rumor has it that this change is because of the debacle that was the Black Scorpion storyline. We have heard that it wasn't until the last minute that Ric Flair stepped in to be the man under the mask at Starrcade 1990.

-With Jim Herd out as Executive Vice President, this also means that Ole Anderson has been removed from the head booker position, giving two separate openings in the company.

-After extensive interviews, we have learned that the man who replaced Jim Herd is named Eric Bischoff. If you're asking yourself just who this is, you would not be alone. Last seen in wrestling, Bischoff was a host and on-air interviewer for the American Wrestling Association. It is said that he will be bringing more of a business aspect to the company.

-One of the first decisions that he has made is that every single episode of World Championship Wrestling will now be aired live on Saturday nights. This is an aspect of professional wrestling that has never been tried before and would surely give Eric Bischoff a long-lasting legacy if he can pull this off. He has told major publications that anything can happen on an episode of World Championship Wrestling.

-On the creative side of things, Eric Bischoff has decided to have a committee to help him make decisions. That committee will consist of Dusty Rhodes, Kevin Sullivan, Ric Flair and Sting.

-Eric Bischoff's next decision was to release Al Green and Grizzly Smith. He said that the company wishes them the best in their future endeavors.

-We have heard that the company will not be leaving the NWA as of right now. That is contrary to the popular belief that the company has outgrown the NWA.

POWER HOUR! (B-Show)
Friday Week 1 January 1991
Location: Georgia Mountains Center (South East)
Attendance: 2,500
Overall Rating: B-
TV Rating: .12


Quote:
-Jim Ross and Paul E. Dangerously welcome everyone to the show. They focus in on the upcoming matches tonight, including Buddy Landel and Terry Taylor wrestling. Our main event contest will be 'Beautiful' Bobby Eaton taking on Ricky Morton! With that being said, Jim Ross sends us to our opening match of the night.

-In an extremely short match, Buddy Landel(C-) defeated Pez Whatley(E) in 4:25 by pinfall with a Corkscrew Elbow Drop...D+

-A pre-taped interview begins to play focusing in on Alexandra York and Michael Wallstreet. York promises that this will be the year of the York Foundation. She introduces Wallstreet as the computerized man of the 1990's and says that her laptop is going to lead them to victory. She says that the computer says that Wallstreet will hold a title before the end of the year here in the NWA. Wallstreet adds in that the York Foundation will look to expand soon but right now he is enough to get the job done.

-In an extremely short match, Terry Taylor(C) defeated Scott Armstrong(E+) in 4:24 by pinfall with a Flying Forearm Smash...C-

-A video begins to play that shows a recap of a match from last week's World Championship Wrestling. This match features Z-Man defeating Arn Anderson for the NWA World Television title. The match is fairly back and forth with Anderson missing a move off the second turnbuckle before Z-Man heads up top. Z-Man catches Anderson with a missile dropkick and then scores what can only be described as an upset.

-In an extremely short match, The Fabulous Freebirds(J-C-, M-C) defeated The Lightning Express(T-D+, B-C) in 4:04 when Michael Hayes defeated Brad Armstrong by pinfall with a Bulldog...C-

-A video plays entitled The Wrestling News Network. This is hosted by Gordon Solie. Solie recaps Starrcade 1990 and then announces that Sting will defend the NWA World Heavyweight title against Ric Flair this Saturday on World Championship Wrestling. Then, he sends us to an interview with Sting. Sting hypes the upcoming match with Ric Flair, promising vengeance for what Flair has recently put him through.

-In a good match, Ricky Morton(C) defeated Bobby Eaton(C+) in 9:43 by count out. During the match we also had Michael Hayes run in and attack Morton...B-

-Ricky Morton is being attacked by The Fabulous Freebirds in the ring. Seeing the assault, Tommy Rich comes running in and fights them both off, saving Morton from a serious beating.

-In a video, Jim Ross and Paul E. Dangerously close the show, wishing everyone a Happy New Year. They are interrupted by Missy Hyatt, who wants to wish everyone a Happy New Year herself. Dangerously makes a snide comment and Missy slaps him before shoving him down as the show comes to a close.

World Championship Wrestling

-For the first time, World Championship Wrestling will be coming to you live from the Omni in Atlanta, Georgia! Each and every week, World Championship Wrestling will be live on Saturday night. This show has a huge unprecedented main event as Sting will defend the NWA World Heavyweight title against 'The Nature Boy' Ric Flair of the Four Horsemen! Ric Flair is a former six time NWA World Heavyweight Champion. The most recent time he held the title was back from May of 1989 to July of 1990 when he lost the title to Sting. Sting has held this title since July of 1990.

-In another match, the NWA World Tag Team Champions Doom steps into the ring with The Renegade Warriors. The Renegade Warriors pulling out a victory here would definitely put them in line for a shot at the NWA World Tag Team titles. But, Doom has been a tough defeat, having survived a Street Fight with the Horsemen at Starrcade 1990. Last year, they also beat The Rock 'N' Roll Express and The Steiner Brothers. The Renegade Warriors, also, beat The Nasty Boys last year so they have proven that they can beat top quality competition.

-We have also learned that the NWA United States Champion Lex Luger is going to be in the building. The man known as The Total Package won the title at Starrcade 1990 against Stan Hansen. We have learned that Hansen is no longer with the company and spending his focus on Japan. With Hansen out of the picture, Luger needs a new challenger. Who will step up to the NWA United States Champion? Last year, Lex Luger defeated wrestlers like Sid Vicious, Motor City Madman and even Ric Flair.

-In our first hour main event, we are going to see Barry Windham of the Four Horsemen take on Terry Taylor. Windham has recently been in tag team action both here and in All Japan. He defeated Akira Taue in AJPW and Doug Furnas at Clash of the Champions 11 in singles matches. At Starrcade 1990, he and Arn Anderson went to a double pin with Doom. Terry Taylor recently lost to Michael Wallstreet at Starrcade 1990. But he defeated Wild Bill Irwin at Halloween Havoc. Which man will get some momentum as we move forward toward the Clash of the Champions?

-In our opening match, the NWA Television Title will be on the line as Z-Man steps in the ring with Dutch Mantell. Mantell is a veteran wrestler but he has been on a bit of a losing streak here lately in Ted Turner Promotions. However, a victory here for the NWA Television title would go a long way toward turning that around. The Z-Man, however, has beaten guys like Arn Anderson, Brian Lee and The Cuban Assassin. Though, he did a suffer a loss to Bobby Eaton at Starrcade 1990 before he won the Television title.

-Plus El Gigante is in action against George South, The Horsemen are in the building and Kevin Sullivan is in the building. Plus we learn more about the upcoming Clash of the Champions card on TBS. Make sure you tune in to World Championship Wrestling!

Thanks for the comments, horseman4lyfe. I know it would be easier to leave the NWA and just focus on yourself but I also set all of my titles to be alliance titles before I started the game. So all of my NWA titles are just that, NWA titles, owned by the alliance. Glad you'll be following. I hope you enjoy the diary as we move forward.

Love this WCW period. A lot to work with -- TV Specials like the Clash, PPV Tours like the Bash and the NJPW alliance. Really looking forward to this.

Subbed and ready to follow closely, brutha!

I know it's a little too late to change it now, but from all the research I've done the only titles that were actual NWA-owned titles at the start of 1991 was the World Heavyweight. All the others were holdovers from JCP, which is why most of their lineages continue back beyond the move to WCW. The only oddball is the World Tag Team titles, which was severed for reasons I don't quite understand because the NWA didn't have their own Tag belts until 1992. However, I look forward to seeing what you do; hopefully the NWA won't start randomly swapping your belts on you at shows in WWC or whatnot.

Z-Man - Attitude aside, Zenk really isn't the worst person who could be running with the TV belt.
El Gigante - He's big, dammit, he has to get over!
Barry Windham - Taylor was on the cusp of his heel turn, so a loss here won't hurt him by the time he makes the switch.
Doom - I remember one of your previous WCW games when you gave the Rens a nice little push up to the belts, but I'm not figuring it'll happen here.
No Contest - Way too big a match to have a strong finish for on free TV.

Hey KYE. Thanks for the predictions and comments. This is definitely a great period in time right now for WCW. I love the Clash of the Champions. I can remember watching them as a child growing up. In 1991, I was ten years old. Right now I don't have any working agreements with anyone except the NWA. This way I can sign who I want to sign without worrying about the agreements. There's definitely a few NJPW and AJPW stars that I would like to poach. Glad you're enjoying so far.

Hey Beejus! Thanks for the predictions and comments. Always glad to see you here, my friend. I didn't know about that part of the lineage of the titles. Thanks for the history lesson. But I think that's part of the fun of running this alliance with all my belts as part of the alliance. There's always the risk of having to work around the other NWA members.

Whenever I start a diary, I definitely pick out several wrestlers that never got a push in real life to give a solid push in the diary. I'm glad to see that has been picked up on.

Hey AMarc9-8! Thanks for the predictions and comments. Zenk definitely could use a better attitude but that is part of the fun of working with someone like him.

I can understand not buying into the El Gigante/Giant Gonzalez hype. He was never that great of a wrestler. However, maybe, just maybe, I can build him up to the point of credibility.

As far as Terry Taylor goes, a really bad gimmick can be hard to shake off in a lot of people's memories. But Taylor was a decent wrestler and with the right push I think he can head toward the top. Not to give away too much, though.

As far as The Renegade Warriors go, they have been called Tribal Nation or simply The Youngbloods. They are Chris and Mark Youngblood, a Native American team.

Hey Warhawk8492! Thanks for the predictions and comments. I can understand this being a little before your time. But, hopefully, I'll build in some historical accuracies to help build this up in your mind. I'm glad you enjoy my writing as well. I try to give just enough in each match and segment so as to get my point across without overwhelming the reader. (except maybe in the main events. LOL)

Hey horseman4lyfe! Thanks for the predictions and comments. I always love a diary set in this time period as well. It was a very interesting time period for both NWA/WCW and WWF. I will occasionally be referring to the company as Turner Sports/Turner Promotions so as to differentiate from the television show.

Oh and if anyone has any promotions they want to see in the Arena Reports, feel free to let me know. I will be glad to add them.

WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP WRESTLING!
Saturday Week 1 January 1991
Location: The Omni (South East)
Attendance: 17,000
Overall Rating: B+
TV Rating: 2.48


Quote:

[World Championship Wrestling begins this week with the arrival of Junkyard Dog! The fans cheer him as he moves into the ring and Jim Ross and Paul E. Dangerously welcome us to World Championship Wrestling. JYD gets on the microphone and welcomes everyone to the year of 1991. He says that this is going to be the year of the Dog because this is going to be the year that he wins the NWA World Heavyweight title. He says that it doesn't matter who the champion is, whether it be Sting or whether it be Ric Flair, he's the one that will be walking away with the title at some point this year. He says that every dog has his day, well, 1991 is going to be his year. He says that he's sick of watching guys like the Horsemen and Larry Zbyszko and Doom walking around here, strutting like they're the best in this industry. He says that the dog is the best and in this year he is going to prove it. JYD would have continued but he is interrupted by music beginning to play. Jim Ross says he doesn't recognize this music but Dangerously says that he knows exactly who it is and JYD should be very afraid.]


[Out from the back comes a large man that looks like a mastadon with the helmet he is wearing. Big Van Vader walks down the ramp toward the ring, pausing at the end of the ramp. He reaches up and removes the helmet, setting it down on the ground in front of himself. He looks down at the helmet and makes a symbol with his hands before steam rises from the helmet itself! Everyone, including Junkyard Dog, is transfixed on this sight. Vader steps up onto the apron and then enters the ring and goes right after JYD! Vader strikes with several vicious forearm shots. JYD tries to fight back but he is quickly overwhelmed by the might of this man, Vader. Vader shoves JYD back into a corner and then hits a running avalanche in the corner, sending JYD tumbling to the mat. Vader climbs to the second turnbuckle and drops with a Vader Bomb onto JYD! JYD immediately grabs his ribs in pain as Big Van Vader stands up and raises the 'V' symbol with his fingers. The crowd boos loudly as Vader turns and walks away, exiting the ring. He leaves JYD down on the mat as he grabs his helmet and puts it back on, walking toward the back as boos echo in the arena.]
Quote:

[We cut, live, to the announce booth where Jim Ross and Paul E. Dangerously are standing by. JR is upset by that 'unmitigated attack' by Big Van Vader on Junkyard Dog. Dangerously warns that this is just the beginning. He says that he's seen this man wrestle in Japan and he is an absolute monster. JR turns the subject to tonight's show and the main event this evening, which will see Sting defend the NWA World Heavyweight title against Ric Flair. Dangerously says that tonight we will see a brand new champion crowned in the Nature Boy. JR says that remains to be seen but it should be a great match regardless. Speaking of great matches, JR sends us to the ring for our opening match here on World Championship Wrestling.]
Match #1
Quote:

NWA Television Title Match
10 Minute Time Limit
Z-Man defends vs. Dutch Mantell


[In an extremely short match, Z-Man(D+) defeated Dutch Mantell(C-) in 3:54 by pinfall with a Super Kick.]

Winner: Z-Man (Via Pinfall @ 3:54)
Match Rating: C-
Quote:



[One of the resident announcers, Tony Schiavone, is standing within the staging area. He says that this has been one of the most action-packed episodes of World Championship Wrestling and things are just beginning. Right now he'd like to welcome his guest, the NWA Television Champion, Z-Man! Z-Man high fives a few fans as he walks to the staging area. He shakes hands with Schiavone before Schiavone congratulates Z-Man on his victory tonight. Z-Man says that he plans to be the best NWA Television Champion that they have ever seen. He will defend this belt each and every week right here live on World Championship Wrestling! The interview is interrupted by the arrival of Bobby Eaton. The generally quiet Eaton takes the microphone and reminds Z-Man that he beat him at Starrcade before Z-Man won the Television title. Eaton challenges Z-Man to a match next week for that title. Z-Man agrees to the title match and Eaton throws a left-handed punch, flooring the Z-Man. Eaton looks down at Z-Man as Tony Schiavone steps in, calling for Doug Dillinger. Schiavone sends us up to the ring for our next match.]
Match #2
Quote:

10 Minute Time Limit
George South vs. El Gigante


[In a bout that had a decent reaction from the crowd but terrible wrestling, El Gigante(D-) defeated George South(D-) in 3:56 by submission with a Clawhold.]

Winner: El Gigante (Via Submission @ 3:56)
Match Rating: D-
Quote:


[Back to the staging area. This time, the third string announcer and interviewer Eric Bischoff is standing by. He talks about what a giant El Gigante is and wonders out loud who could beat the large 7'7" man. Bischoff's musings are interrupted by the arrival of Terry Taylor to the staging area. Taylor says that he's sick and tired of waiting for a shot at the NWA Television title. Now, Bobby Eaton is taking his shot next week? He says it's getting tougher and tougher to be the nice guy here in this company. Bischoff says that he has a special announcement to make and it involves Terry Taylor. He says that the Championship Committee has heard Taylor's complaints and they have decided to step things up. At the Clash of the Champions, Terry Taylor will step in the ring against whomever the NWA World Heavyweight Champion is. Taylor looks in shock for a moment but then he shakes Bischoff's hand and says that he is going to prove why they call him Terrific Terry Taylor. He says he's going to be a great and fighting NWA World Heavyweight Champion. A jubilant Taylor heads to the ring for his match against Barry Windham.]
Match #3
Quote:

20 Minute Time Limit
Barry Windham vs. Terry Taylor


[The main event of the first hour is here as Barry Windham steps in the ring with Terry Taylor. Taylor goes right at the second generation wrestler with punches and a few clotheslines that bring down Windham. Taylor goes for the Five Arm within the first minute but Windham avoids it and sends Taylor through the ropes to the outside of the ring. Outside the ring, Arn Anderson walks down to ringside as Windham gets the referee's attention. Anderson puts the boots to Taylor and then rams him rib-first against the ring apron before tossing him inside the ring. Anderson is yelled at by the official but he raises his arms, saying he didn't do anything. Windham goes right to Taylor, focusing on the ribs of Terrific Terry. He spends the next several minutes focusing on Taylor's ribs while the crowd tries to get behind Taylor. Windham lifts Taylor in a gutwrench suplex, bringing him hard down to the mat. Windham adjusts the black glove on his right hand and goes for the Clawhold taught to him by his father but Taylor blocks the claw! Taylor fights from the bottom, reversing the claw and flipping Windham onto his stomach. Taylor locks on a Boston crab! Windham shakes his head, refusing to submit. Arn Anderson climbs on the apron but Taylor releases the hold and punches Anderson off the apron! Windham comes in behind Taylor but Taylor fires a back elbow. Taylor bounces off the ropes -- Five Arm! Taylor makes a cover, hooking the leg: One, Two, Three! What a huge upset!]

Winner: Terry Taylor (Via Pinfall @ 15:55)
Match Rating: B-

[Terry Taylor has just picked up a huge win over Barry Windham of the Four Horsemen. Arn Anderson climbs in the ring and blindsides Taylor from behind with a double axehandle smash to the back. Anderson turns Taylor around and lifts him up, dropping him with a Spinebuster! Anderson helps Windham to his feet and they both put the boots to Taylor! Windham locks Taylor in the Clawhold! But, then, the fans stand on their feet as The Steiner Brothers come running in from the back! Rick Steiner catches Arn Anderson with a Steinerline and Scott grabs Windham around the waist -- overhead belly-to-belly suplex! Windham and Anderson roll out of the ring while The Steiner Brothers look down at them. Rick runs around the ring barking before he drops to his knees. Scott stands over him, staring down at the two members of The Horsemen as they back up the ramp.]

[The second hour begins with a video showcasing Brian Pillman. A hype video plays showcasing him defeating Buddy Landel at the November Clash of the Champions. He is, also, shown defeating Basher from a September Power Hour. Then, we go to a direct interview with him. Flyin' Brian looks into the camera and says that next week on the Power Hour he's going to go one on one with Michael Wallstreet in the main event. The interview is definitely cut short as he hypes the one on one match. He says that he knows that Alexandra York will be at ringside but that his focus is in the ring and Wallstreet. He welcomes everyone to watch the show this Friday night on TBS.]
Quote:

[Back at the ringside area, the fans are on their feet as the NWA United States Champion Lex Luger walks from the back. Luger high fives the fans in the front row before climbing in the ring and picking up a microphone. He says that he is happy about being here on the new live World Championship Wrestling as the NWA United States Champion. He says that he has lived on the good side of things and the bad side of things. He says that the fans here have loved him and that they have hated him. He says that he is glad to be on the right side of the fans. He says that being on the good side of the fans makes him a better Champion. Not only a better Champion but a better wrestler. He is truly the Total Package. He says that he considers himself to be the best United States Champion of all-time. It is those words that bring forth another man who is a former United States Champion.]


[That man is the veteran Harley Race. Race is booed by the audience as he walks to the ring and steps inside. Luger asks him why he is here. Race reminds Luger that he is the first ever United States Champion. He says that makes him the best United States Champion of all-time. He says that he wants the United States title back and he wants it back at the Clash of the Champions. Luger takes a moment to think it over and then he agrees to the match, offering a handshake to Harley. Race looks at the hand and sneers for a moment before actually shaking Luger's hand. He pulls Luger in close and tells him not to take this as a sign of weakness because he's anything but weak. He says to consider this the handshake of death. He says that Luger has been marked by Harley Race. He can ask Ric Flair about being marked. Race shoves Luger back a step and then exits the ring, walking to the back as Luger stares at Race.]
Quote:


[As the ring is being cleared, we go to this week's edition of the Wrestling News Network hosted by Gordon Solie. Solie discusses Starrcade 1990 where Sting defeated The Black Scorpion, who was unmasked to reveal Ric Flair. Solie then reminds us that Flair has another shot at the NWA World Heavyweight title tonight. To talk about that, he sends us to an video interview with Ric Flair. Flair looks in the camera and says that tonight the Four Horsemen have the champagne on ice. Tonight, he walks that aisle and steps inside the ring with an old foe. He says that Sting and himself have gone around and around multiple times but one thing is always true: to be the man, you have to beat the man. He says that right now the ten pounds of gold around Sting's waist makes him the man but that is about to change. He says that he is going to style and profile inside the ring and prove that he is the best in the world today. Whoo! The cameras cut back to the ring for our next match.]

[The show moves to a video showing a beach at night. Walking along this beach is the man that fans know as Kevin Sullivan. Sullivan looks up into the camera and says that his Lord hath commanded that he begin again. He says that he has seen the light and he has seen the dark and he takes the path of darkness. He walks along with his new family that is officially known as The Slaughterhouse. Joining him at the beach are Moondog Rex and Big Cat. Sullivan has them both on leashes and collars as he drags them along the beach. Sullivan says that things are about to change in the world of professional wrestling. He says that the end is near. He laughs darkly before the video comes to an end and it's time for the main event.]

NWA World Heavyweight Title Match
30 Minute Time Limit or Television Time Remaining
Sting defends vs. Ric Flair


[It is main event time and what a main event we have in store for you as Sting steps in the ring to take on his arch-rival Ric Flair for the NWA World Heavyweight title. When the bell sounds, the two men circle each other and then lock up with Flair backing Sting into the corner. Flair lights up Sting's chest with a knife edge chop but Sting flexes, ignoring the pain of the chop. Flair begs off and Sting brings down Flair with a clothesline out of the corner. Flair gets back up and Sting ducks a clothesline attempt, bringing Flair down with an atomic drop. Flair staggers into the corner and Sting rushes in, climbing up and beginning to rain down punches on The Nature Boy! He gets to ten before dropping down and then lifting Flair with a military press slam! Flair rolls out of the ring to catch a break, pacing at ringside for a moment. Flair slides back in the ring and the first few minutes of the bout completely belong to the NWA World Heavyweight Champion. Sting has Flair in an armbar but Flair works his way back up to his feet. Flair grabs Sting by the back of his head and drags him into a corner. The referee asks for a clean break but Flair pokes Sting in the eye. Sting staggers out of the corner and Flair strikes with a chop block to the back of the knee. Flair spends the next few minutes focusing on the knee of Sting, including stomps to the back of the knee and placing it on the bottom rope before leaping with a seated senton on the leg. Sting cries out in pain and Flair celebrates with a strut across the ring. Flair comes back and goes for the Figure Four but Sting reverses it into a small package:]



[....1....



....2....



...Kickout!]

[We almost had a retaining of the NWA World Heavyweight title with a quick small package. We are ten minutes in and Flair is still in control of the match. Flair pulls Sting to his feet and then flings him back down to the mat with a snap mare. The Nature Boy bounces off the ropes and lands a diving knee drop right across Sting's forehead. Flair makes a quick cover: One, Two, Kickout! Flair argues with the official but the referee says it was only a two count. Flair slides out of the ring and grabs the NWA World Heavyweight title belt. He slides it into the ring and the referee steps in, grabbing the belt and going to put it away. With the referee distracted, Flair pulls Sting up and tosses him over the top rope to the floor at ringside. Flair joins Sting down on the floor and grabs a cable from the ground, choking Sting with it without revealing the cable. Flair releases the cable and motions toward the back. Here comes Arn Anderson and Sid Vicious. Flair slides back in the ring and gets the attention of the referee. With the referee distracted again, Arn Anderson grabs Sting but Sting throws a punch! Sting dives back inside the ring before grabbing his knee in pain. Flair moves in and stomps on the injured leg of Sting before dragging Sting to the center of the ring -- Figure Four! Flair locks in the Figure Four! Sting shakes his head as the referee asks him if he wants to submit. Flair drags the Figure Four back just a little and then grabs the middle rope! The referee checks with Sting and Flair releases the rope before the referee turns back around. Flair keeps this up for about a minute befor the referee catches him grabbing the rope. The referee forces a break on the hold. Flair makes a cover, hooking the leg:]



[....1....



....2....



...Kickout!]

[The crowd cheers, clapping and stomping their feet to try to get Sting back into the match. The switch in momentum happens when Flair goes for a clothesline but Sting ducks and reverses into a backslide: One, Two, Kickout! Sting pulls himself up quickly and throws some punches to Flair, backing The Nature Boy into a corner. Sting beats his own chest before Irish whipping Flair across to the other side. Flair flips up and over the turnbuckle, landing on the apron and then falling outside the ring, grabbing his foot. Flair looks to be in a tremendous amount of pain as Arn Anderson and Sid Vicious come around to check on him. The referee asks if Flair can continue and Flair nods his head. Flair refuses to walk away from the fight but he is obviously injured coming off that fall outside the ring. Arn Anderson climbs up on the apron, distracting the official as Sid Vicious goes around and slides in the ring behind Sting. Vicious catches Sting with a clothesline to the back of the head and then quickly elevates him with a Power Bomb! Vicious exits the ring and Anderson drops off the apron. Anderson helps Flair back in the ring and Flair rolls up Sting, placing his feet on the ropes with the roll up:]



[....1....



....2....



....3!]


Winner: Ric Flair (Via Pinfall @ 21:54)
Match Rating: A
Quote:

[We have a new NWA World Heavyweight Champion in Ric Flair but The Nature Boy appears to be injured. He rolls out of the ring and Arn Anderson gives him the title belt. Anderson is on one side and Sid Vicious is on the other side, helping Flair back up the ramp as Sting complains to the official about everything that happened. But there's no instant replay in professional wrestling. Barry Windham joins the rest of the Four Horsemen at the top of the ramp and all four of them raise four fingers in solidarity. Ric Flair is the new NWA World Heavyweight Champion but what is going to happen with his foot? Make sure you tune in to the Power Hour where we will surely have more information about what's happened with Ric Flair. We'll see you then!]

Comments: I loved Doom.....their street fight with the Horsemen at Starrcade was amazing to my eleven year old eyes

Comments On The Diary In General: This is pretty much the time frame I remember most from my childhood.....I was watching before this, but itís around here that the memories start so I look forward to seeing where you take it
Hey to4sty. Thanks for the predictions and comments. This is, indeed, pre-York Foundation Terry Taylor. In real life, he made that turn at the Clash of the Champions in January 1991.

The Doom/Horsemen street fight at Starrcade 1990 was definitely a sight to see back in the day. Though, it was a little bit frustrating with the double pin and the lack of Ric Flair(due to his playing the role of Black Scorpion).

I hope you enjoy the diary itself. This definitely brings me back to my childhood as well and I hope I do these moments justice.

News And Notes
Quote:
-Dark matches for World Championship Wrestling included Buddy Landel defeating Allen Iron Eagle in a D+ rated match. The second dark match featured Ricky Morton, Tommy Rich and The Southern Boys defeating The Fabulous Freebirds and The State Patrol in a match marred by drugs and alcohol that still manages a 'C' grade.

-Due to what happened within one of the dark matches earlier on, Tommy Rich has been released from Turner Sports. He is said to not be very happy about this release. We have also learned that Jimmy Garvin has been sent to rehab for his drinking problem. The Freebird will now be gone for many months as he tries to get his drinking problem under control. He seems to have hit rock bottom and is happy about going to rehab.

-With Eric Bischoff now in charge, several wrestlers have had their contracts converted from pay-per-appearance to written deals which prohibit them from working in other promotions. Some of these names include Moondog Rex, Michael Wallstreet, Motor City Madman, Owen Hart, Dutch Mantell, Harley Race, Brian Pillman, Butch Reed, Z-Man, Big Van Vader, Kevin Sullivan, The Juicer and Sid Vicious.

-NWA United States Champion Lex Luger defended that title in the Professional Wrestling Federation's big event titled Times Of Trouble. He retained the title in a match against Bugsy McGraw.

-In what can only come as a surprise, Turner Sports has made the decision to open a smaller separate promotion named United States Pro Wrestling. This promotion will serve as a developmental promotion for Turner Sports. The promotion will be run by former owner and head booker of UWF, Bill Watts. The first show run by this company will be USPW Red, White And Blue! and will be held on Sunday, Week 3, January 1991.
