Unfortunately, the question(s) is not: "Did
you guys release La Parka like I read on the Internet? What kinda idiots are you?"
This week's question is from Chris LaCroix:
Mike Awesome says (really fast):
Well Chris, I
started training back in 1988 with Steve Keirn,
who happens to be one of the best professional
wrestler trainers in the game today! And now I've
been wrestling for about 10 years, so how 'bout
Awesome said that like he was cutting a promo on
While Hudson hypes Great American Bash, Bobby's
busy playing with the DDP doll.
Hey, random thought: Who was the guy who pushed
those tables on to the Wall that one time so
Terry Funk could retain the Hardcore Title?
Okay, it wasn't random.
Seeing Curt Hennig in the clips they play
randomly in the background while Hudson
and Heenan talk reminded me of other
The New South (Corey Williams and Ashley Hudson) vs The
Shane Twins (Mike and Todd)
Hey, not a squash! I'm not used to that.
WIlliams and Hudson got in no offense last week
against Abbott and Steiner, so they deserve some
make up here.
But, the other guys are having their debut/tryout
match, so maybe they go over?
The last thing I need in life is another set of
identical twins in WCW to try and tell apart.
It took me 6 months to figure out the
The Shane Twins are from Tampa, Florida.
The announcers don't know which guy is which
Mike (we're saying) and Ashley start this off.
Lockup, Mike with the armbar into the headlock,
off the ropes, shoulderblock, elbowdrop misses
Ashley's already halfway into the hiptoss by the
time Mike gets there, followed by a less
telegraphed looking one into an armbar.
Mike reverses the armbar, whip, reverse, drop
down, hiptoss blocked, Mike with a belly to belly
Mike with a one hand cover, 2 count. Mike throws
Ashley into the corner, tags to Todd.
Mike with the cross corner whip on Ashley, then
whips Todd, who reverses it and Mike goes in with
Ashley rebounds out of the corner, into a boot
from Todd and a gutwrench suplex. Cover, 2 count.
Todd with a whip, no, up into a fireman's carry,
turn, Samoan Drop.
1 count, Corey breaks it up.

Cover, 2 count.
Tag to Ashley, whip by Corey, drop toe hold by
Ashley, jumping elbow drop to the back of the
head by Corey.
That looked really good.
Ashley with the cover, 2 count.
The announcer are talking about how important
Flair's match is, as if he doesn't win, he'll
lose his 'sports entertainment' career.
I might have a chance of believing that
if he didn't already lose his career in '94.
Ashley with a knee to Todd, then tag to Corey.
Double whip, Corey's hiptoss blocked (while
Ashley just stands there watching, then leaves
the ring) into a swinging neckbreaker.

misses a clothesline, and then is powerslammed by
Powerslam on Corey.
Clothesline over the top on Ashley, Todd drops to
the floor to go after him.
Whip by Mike, reversed by Corey, Mike with a
sunset flip but only 2.
While Ashley takes care of Todd outside the ring,
Corey escapes a waistlock by getting to the
ropes, then misses a clothesline.
Corey off the ropes, and Mike gives him what
someone might call a 'rana.
They also might call it the worse 'rana
That was just ugly.
Maybe he was going for a bodyscissors and
That was just horrible.
Even Tony is pointing out what a bad move
Ashley with a dropkick, then runs off the ropes
as Corey picks up Mike in a bearhug and Ashley
hits a running clothesline.
Think "Hart Foundation's Hart Attack"
Corey covers, and gets three.
Your Winners: New South (3:54)
I hope we don't see the Shanes again.
The New South guys need a couple more moves,
still, but they're at least not pointless.
Vampiro vs Mike Rapada
Vampiro's video doesn't play until he's halfway
down the aisle, for some reason.
He gets no pyro, either.
He even gets the first entrance.
What kinda jobber is this Vampiro guy?
The announcers are so shocked by Rapada's
entrance (for whatever reason), Tony
stops his place, midsentence.
Tenay on Rapada. "This Kid from Colorado..."
Hey, look, it's the Boss....Man, is he
Rapada's got this 'I really want to be Mike
Awesome' look going tonight.
Rapada tries to lockup, but Vamp ducks under, and
then hits a stiff kick. And another.
Must be mad about getting the first

Fans: "We Want Sting"
So do I. So do I.
Not that WCW would eeeeeever use a taped
chant, but the chant starts when we don't
have the normal good look at the fans,
and stops when then fans get back on
Rapada with a punch, corner whip, bad running
forearm, shoulder thrusts to midsection, and runs

Vamp with a pose, then goes to the top rope to
Vampiro with a Ligerbomb, and that's 3.
Your Winner: Vampiro (3:42)
No Nail in the Coffin, I guess.
Chris Candido/Tammy vs Sean Stasiak/Mona
Why did Chris Candido steal tights from Val
I don't want to be mean, but Tammy needs bigger
shorts. Maybe pants would look better.
So, this is really, really late Tuesday/early
Wednesday when I'm finally finishing up here.
I bring this up, because on last night's WCW
Live, there was a question about why the WCW
Women's division was disbanded.
The hosts explained that all the women were too
busy doing other things for the title to work.
And with that, here's Mona.
According to Tony, Mona's a former WCW Women's
Apparently, we're making up title reigns
out of the blue now.
Therefore, I'd like to give credit to my
webmaster, 12 Time WCW World Champion
Also, on the graphics tonight is your 3
time WCW TV Champion Greg.
Mona's no longer wearing her evening gown-ish
outfit anymore, going to a shiny green shirt and
Sean and Mona are arguing before the bell rings.
This is going work out soooo well, I'm sure.
Chris and Sean start.
Sean with a kick, punch, punch, clothesline
Chris with a punch, punch, whip, clothesline
misses, 'rana is blocked into a powerbomb.
Sean with a pose, running elbow drop misses.
Chris with a hiptoss, tag to Tammy.
Tammy seems eager to fight Sean for some reason,
but Sean unhappily tags out to Mona.
Lockup, headlock by Tammy, Tammy with a
hammerlock, Mona reverses, Tammy with a snapmare.
Tammy adjusts her top, then does a Rick Rude hip
Mona walks over to her corner, where Sean says
something like "I don't want to see you
again" and walks off.
While Mona is watching Sean walk off, Tammy hits
her from behind with a double axehandle.
Turnbuckle shot, hiptoss by Tammy.
Tag to Chris, who whips Mona and hits a turning
The announcers talk about this being an example
of a lack of cohesion in the New Blood, while it
seems quite the opposite...
Sean, Chris and Tammy stick together to
take out non-member Mona.
Too complex of a story for some people, I
Chris throws Mona to the outside.
Mona up on the apron, forearm shot, and a
suplex to the floor.
It would have looked better if Chris
didn't jump into it...and most of the way
to the floor.
Tammy with a weak kick, and an okay Stunner.
Tammy almost falls out of her top in the process,
but does get the pin without being the legal
Your Winner: Chris Candido and Tammy (2:44)
Scott and Bobby wrap up, and that's it for this week.
