Russell: Yeeeeeellllllloooooo again and we welcome you to another exciting edition of Championship Wrestling. Heeeeeeyyyy what a busy week we have had and what a great show we have lined up for ya. And here’s our old friend Davey to tell us all about it.
Brown: Yes indeed, Lance. This very well may be the last time that CWA will be seen on ch.5. The Rage in the Cage is Monday and everybody is ready for the big match. We will hear from everyone involved in the match this week, including Jimmy Hart who will wrestle Andy Kaufman to see which team will get the advantage. Also, Cornette & Kaufman’s final team member will be introduced today. We will also hear from the Midnight Express and the Rock-n-Roll Express. Speaking of Ricky & Robert, they defeated The Gilberts last Monday to become the #1 contenders to the Southern Tag Team Titles. Joining me now is Jerry Jarrett.
Brown: Jerry, the big match is here. I know both teams are ready. I know I should be impartial, but I really hope that The King’s team comes out on top. Jerry, what are your thoughts?
Jarrett: Dave, no one can really be impartial, because all of our jobs are on the line. I. too, am pulling for Jerry in this one. And to make things more fair, Kareem Mohammed will be handcuffed to Plowboy Frazier. Also, Jackie Fargo and I will be at ringside to keep an eye on Cornette & Kaufman. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t worried Dave. I consider the CWA my home and I don’t want to lose it. I don’t mean to put more pressure on Jerry, but his team has got to come through for us. I hope to see you next week Dave. I have my fingers crossed.
Brown: We all do Jerry. Hey Lance, it looks like you have a guest over there.
Russell: Innnnnnnndeeeeed I do Davey. Joining me now is Jimmy Hart. Jimmy, last week I said I don’t trust you in that match with Kaufman and I haven’t changed my opinion.
Hart: (In a low, worried voice) Lance Russell, I can’t say that I blame you. I have done a lot of bad things to a lot of people here, including you. But Lance, there is nothing I love more than the rasslin business. And to be able to not only be in the rasslin business, but to be in it in my hometown, is very special to me. I’m no angel, but I don’t want to see Cornette & Kaufman take ch.5 and the Mid-South Coliseum away. It will be a sad day if that ever happens. So, Lance, I made a little tribute video that I would love to show everybody. It’s a way for me to combine my two loves, music & Memphis wrestling. I would appreciate it if you would show it Lance.
Russell: Ok ok Jimmy weeeeeee’ll show it, but I don’t know what you are up to.
Russell: (With a tear in his eye, voice cracking) Wow….ummmmm (gulp)….Jimmy, I need to apologize to you. I really thought you were up to another one of your schemes, but after watching that, I realize how much you love wrestling here in Memphis and how you are in agreement with all of us on the fact that The King’s team can’t lose this match Monday Night. Thank you for all of those memories Jimmy. That was the best tribute anyone could do for all of the wrestlers and fans here in Memphis.
Hart: Thank you Lance for the nice words, but I just had to do something to remind the fans of what a treasure the CWA is. It’s been a long time, but I am rooting for The King in this one. We have rarely agreed about anything, but on this, there is no question that The King and me are 100% in agreement on this. Good luck King, and wish me luck, the people of Memphis are counting on us.
Gary Royal def. Marvin Turner with an inside cradle
Russell: Weeeeeeeeeeelllll, looks like the gangs all here. Looks like Cornette & Kaufman and their rats are here.
Cornette: Awwwwww are you done crying with that little pipsqueak Jimmy Hart? What a touching video. I think I will enjoy watching it as I lounge at Mother’s mansion in Louisville after my boys here win the Rage in the Cage. Oh I can’t wait to give Jarrett, Lawler, you, and Brown your walking papers. Haha just the thought puts a smile on my face. I hear all of these morons whining and crying about losing their wrestling and I just have to laugh. When we win and the purchase of ch.5 and the Mid-South Coliseum goes through, I think I will continue to have wrestling and it will be the CWA, Cornette Wrestling Association. What do you think Andy?
Kaufman: I love the idea James. Your own wrestling territory to go along with my own comedy theatre and improvisation television shows. James, we will bring culture and class to these hillbillies. James, I have worked very close with our team, all 5 members of our team, and there is no way that this unit can be beaten. We have two classic wrestlers in Flair and Bockwinkel. We have a power man in Hogan. We have a brawler in Schultz. And our fifth member has it all. And in just a few short minutes, all of these rednecks are going to see the final piece of the puzzle in action. And Jimmy Hart, I will beat you handily just like I have beaten every woman I have ever faced. Most of them are bigger than you any way. But, let’s hear from these tremendous athletes. Mr. Flair please tell these buffoons what’s going to happen Monday Night.
Flair: Have you ever seen a finer group in all of your lives? Of course, when the Nature Boy teams with anybody, nobody can stop us. I am the greatest wrestler ever and I prove it every time out. I’m a limousine ridin, jet flyin, kiss stealin, wheelin dealin son of a gun. Oh Lord, it’s hard to be humble when you are perfect in every way. Wooooooooooo! Idol, I want you Monday Night. You have been a thorn in my side and Monday, in the cage, I will put you out permanently. Tell em about it big man.
Hogan: Brother, you are so right. These 24” pythons are ready to wrap around any of those dudes. We are going to pound them into the ground until there is nothing left, Brother. It’s just not fair that we are so much better than those 4 ½ men. I mean come on dude, Dundee is a midget and shouldn’t even be in the ring with real men. I can’t wait until we ship off all of these fossils and start our own territory like my man Jimmy said. Monday Night is out with the old and in with the new Brother!
Bockwinkel: Mr. Flair and Mr. Hogan are right in every way. Never have I been associated with this much talent before. It doesn’t matter whom we face, there is no way that we can be beaten. A new regime is certainly in order for Memphis and I for one and proud to be a part of it. And Mr. Lawler will never have a chance to fulfill his World Championship promise to these cretins, because we intend to end his career Monday. Mr. Lawler is an embarrassment to himself and to the sport of professional wrestling. First, he loses his International Title to Manny Fernandez and now he will lose an entire wrestling company. And I will be paying close attention to Mr. Rich. I have a score to settle with you and I plan on settling this debt Monday Night.
Schultz: Hey, I ain’t gonna get all sentimental about anything. I’m getting paid good money for this match and that’s all that matters. I’ll hurt anybody for money and I’m getting plenty of it to hurt Lawler’s team. This one is gonna be easy money for me. And that’s all I got to say about it.
Cornette: And now, the moment you have all been waiting for. Ladies and gentlemen, hahahaha, who am I kidding? Inbreds, I present to you the fifth member of our team…
The Macho Man, RANDY SAVAGE!
Savage: Freak out, freak out, the Macho man is here! Ohhhhhhh Yay-ah! The Macho Man is finally in Memphis. For years, the macho Man has tried to come to Memphis, but I’ve always been denied, yes I have. Jerry Jarrett and his cronies were always against having the Macho Man here because my dad runs a wrestling company in Kentucky that’s better than his. That and that so-called King, Jerry Lawler is afraid of me. Well, I will be denied no more! I am here and I will help bring down Memphis wrestling, yes I will! And now I’m going to show you what Lawler has been afraid of all these years. (Savage charges into the ring).
Randy Savage def. Gene Ligon with a top rope axe handle after pummeling him throughout the short match
Savage: (Rejoining Team Cornette) SEE LAWLER! THAT’S GONNA BE YOU MONDAY NIGHT, YES IT IS! LAWLER IS GOING TO FEEL THE WRATH OF THE MACHO MAN! OHHHHHHH YAY-AH! DIG IT! (Cornette and Kaufman lead their charges away from the desk).
Russell: Boooooooyyyy, that Savage is, well, a savage. Things are not looking good for Lawler and his team. Fans, weeeeeee are going to the ring for our next match.
The Rock-n-Roll Express def. Bob Owen and Dennis Hall with a double dropkick on Owen.
Russell: Heeeeeeyyyyyy Rrrrrrricky and Rrrrrrrobert that was a grrrrrreat win!
Morton: Thanks Lance. First of all, I want to thank all these nice fans for really getting behind us and supporting us so good. You know, we have been here for a while and we have fought our way up from the bottom. Last week, we had a great match with the Gilberts and we were lucky enough to beat them. Now, we get the Midnight Express. We all know how tough they are, but it seems to me that there may be a little trouble between them and Jimmy Cornette. While I believe we can beat them anyway, if there are problems, that just makes it better for us. I feel good about this match and me and Robert have been training hard. Monday Night could be historic in more ways than one. We would like to say something about the Rage in the Cage. We need for Jerry, Tommy, Austin, Dutch, and Bill to beat Cornette & Kaufman’s boys. I grew up on Memphis rasslin Lance and we just can’t lose it. Can you imagine if ch.5 and the Coliseum falls into the hands of those clowns? It would be one of the worst things to happen to Memphis in a long, long time. Jerry, anything we can do to help you guys, we are there for you. Ain’t that right Robert?
Gibson: You got that right brother.
Russell: Rrrrrrrrrick and Rrrrrrobert, good luck Monday Night. (As Morton & Gibson leave the desk, the Midnight Express approaches it). Weeeeeeeeeeelll speaking of the Midnight Express, here they are. And Cornette is not with them. Dennis, it seems like Jimmy has forgotten about you two.
Condrey: Listen Russell, we’re not here to talk about Cornette. Me and Bobby don’t need any help in beatin two punk kids like Morton and Gibson. Me and Bobby are the best tag team in the World and we have proved it over and over. There isn’t a team in the CWA that can beat us. Monday Night you will see those kids get a beating like they have never seen.
Russell: Dennis, what about the Rrrrrrage in the Cage?
Condrey: What about it? We aren’t in it. I really don’t understand what the whole point of taking over ch.5 and the Mid-South Coliseum is. Me and Bobby are wrestlers and we wrestle here. Why would Jimmy want to mess with it? Sounds like Kaufman is in Jimmy’s head to me.
Cornette: (Hurrying to the desk at a fast waddle) Dennis, Bobby! Sorry I’m late! Banana nose, My Midnight Express is going to wipe the mat with those Rock-n-Roll punks! We are the best! The Briscos don’t even have the guts to face Beautiful Bobby and Loverboy Dennis! If they did, we would be AWA World Tag Team Champions! I love these guys and we have a great future ahead of us! (Dennis gives Cornette a look that could kill)
Russell: Jimmy, Dennis brrrrrrings up a verrrrrry good point. They are wrestlers here too. Why would you take away their livelihood?
Cornette: RUSSELL, YOU SENILE OLD CODGER! STOP TRYING TO POISON MY BOYS’ MINDS OUT HERE! (Cornette begins to pour sweat) Bobby, Dennis, let’s go! (Cornette leaves with the Midnight Express shaking their heads behind him).
Phil Hickerson def. Rusty Brooks with an elbow drop after several kicks and stomps.
Russell: Heeeeeeere they are, The King and his court! Jerry, I gotta tell ya. I have never seen a match with these kinds of consequences in my life!
Lawler: Lance, this is definitely the biggest match of my life. This whole situation has cost me a lot. I’ve gotten off-track in my pursuit of the AWA World Title. I’ve lost the International Title to that idiot Manny Fernandez. But, we could lose much, much, more than that if we don’t win Monday Night. Simply put, we can’t let these wonderful fans down. They love CWA wrestling on ch.5 and they love going to the matches every Monday Night. Kissing their feet and losing my crown doesn’t even compare to losing the Coliseum and ch.5. Even Condrey and Eaton realize that. I know Cornette and Kaufman has great wrestlers and then you add in Savage and yes, they are going to be hard to beat, but we have no choice, we must win. Lance, I can’t even find the right words to express how important this is. Maybe one of my friends can.
Idol: (Holding his axe handle, Minerva) Kingfish, this is war! Dahlin we have never had to go to these depths. We will fight like wild animals protecting our young! We will fight ‘til the end for the good people of Memphis! And if Jimmy Hart does his job we will have the advantage. Beautiful people of Memphis, we won’t let you down!
Rich: That’s right, Austin. They got some tough men on thar team, but our team is better. We gonna whoop Cornette’s criminals from one end of that ring to tha other. Me, tha King, tha Hearthrob, tha Superstar, and tha Dutchman are ready and we are Farrrrrrrrred Up!
Mantell: What it all boils down to is that we all have history together. We have all fought with each other and against each other. We all have respect for each other and we know our strengths and weaknesses. We are a perfect team. Cornette’s guys haven’t been in a war environment with each other. They may be awesome individually, but together, they are going to be lost. Guys, you better have your game face on, because we are ready!
Dundee: Dutchman you are right. Them boys think they are so great, but they have no idea how we all have fought. Brother, together we can’t be beat. Kaufman is useless and Cornette don’t got the brains to lead his team to a win. Memphis we will defend ya with all we have, brother! (At this point, Cornette, Kaufman, and their men come out, while Jimmy Hart joins the King’s team and the two teams square off. Officials separate the two teams).
Russell: Wooooooaaaaaahhhhhh it’s time to get out of here. Fans, I hope we will be here next week. The Coliseum and Ellis Auditorium are sold out. Check out your local newspapers for the results from Monday Night. If we don’t see ya again, and I speak for Davey too, it’s been a pleasure to be with you all these years. I can’t think of a better way to end this show than replaying the video Jimmy Hart brought today. Goodbye dear friends.
Monday, November 5, 1982
Ringside announcer: Lance Russell
Referees: Jerry Calhoun and Paul Morton
The Great Yatsu def. Dennis Hall with a nerve hold
Tommy & Eddie Gilbert def. Frank Morrell & Phil Hickerson when Eddie sunset flips Morrell
To determine the team that gets the advantage for the Rage in the Cage
Jimmy Hart vs Andy Kaufman w/ Jim Cornette & Kareem Mohammed
Hart and Kaufman meet mid-ring and start jawing with each other. Referee Calhoun calls for the bell and the two circle each other. Cornette hops up on the ring apron and reaches into his jacket pocket. He calls over Hart. Hart walks over and starts mouthing off at Cornette. Cornette produces a wad of cash and talks to Hart. Hart’s eyes light up. He takes the money and cackles all the way to the dressing room. Calhoun has no choice but to count out Hart, giving Cornette’s criminals the advantage in the Rage in the Cage. Lawler comes down to protest, but to no avail. The fans are at near riot level.
Southern Tag Team Title Match
The Rock-n-Roll Express def. The Midnight Express© w/Jim Cornette & Kareem Mohammed by DQ when Cornette hits Morton with his tennis racket. The Express celebrates retaining the Titles, but Condrey still doesn’t look too happy with Cornette.
The Rage in the Cage
Cornette’s Criminals vs The King’s Court
Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan, Nick Bockwinkel, David Schultz, & Randy Savage vs Jerry Lawler, Austin Idol, Tommy Rich, Dutch Mantell, & Bill Dundee
The teams gather on opposite sides of the ring. Lance Russell announces the rules and says the only way to win the match is to handcuff all of the opposing team’s member to the cage. Handcuffing occurs by physically handcuffing your opponent, by pinfall, or by submission. Jerry Jarrett and Jackie Fargo take their seats bookending Cornette and Kaufman. Mohammed is handcuffed to Plowboy Frazier. Both teams huddle and discuss last minute strategy. The referee calls for each team to send in their first competitor. Ric Flair steps into the cage first. Immediately, Idol rushes in. Idol tears into Flair as the five minute first session begins. The first two minutes are all Idol’s. He pounds Flair into the cage several times, opening up a huge cut. Flair begs off and as an overeager Idol charges in, Flair hits a well-timed low blow. Idol spins down to the mat as Flair tries to recover from the initial onslaught. He finally gets to his feet and begins pounding the Hearthrob. Idol takes a terrible beating, but the fans get behind him and he gets his second wind with about a minute left in this period. Idol has Flair down and even has Flair trapped in the Las Vegas leglock as the period runs out. Due to Jimmy Hart’s treachery, Cornette’s Criminals sends in its big man, Hulk Hogan for this two minute period. Idol releases the hold and goes to meet Hogan as he enters the cage. Idol peppers him with lefts and rights. Hogan tries to fight back as Flair begins to recover. For every punch Hogan gets in, Idol catches him with three. The fans are standing in approval as the two minutes wind down. Flair gets to his feet with about thirty seconds left. He rushes over and gives Idol a big knee to the back. Idol collapses to the mat and Flair and Hogan hoist up Idol and walk over to the cage. They handcuff Idol to the cage just as Dutch Mantell rushes in to break up the handcuffing. Being too late, Mantell is left to face Flair and Hogan alone. Mantell goes on the defense initially, but realizes that if he doesn’t eliminate either Flair or Hogan, then it will be a three on one attack on him soon. The Dutchman lunges and starts nailing Hogan and Flair with lefts and rights. Dutch has the fans at a fever’s pitch as he fends off both of his aggressors. Time is ticking and Dutch can’t separate Flair and Hogan long enough to score a pin, submission, or handcuffing. Nick Bockwinkel enters the cage and Dutch is at a three on one disadvantage. Mantell fights valiantly, but the odds overcome him. Mantell is handcuffed to the cage within a minute. Flair, Hogan, and Bockwinkel take the opportunity to rest before the next man can make his way into the ring. The fans are deflated as the odds of Lawler’s team winning have gone down considerably. The seconds tick away and Rich rushes by Lawler and enters the cage. Immediately, he is triple teamed. Rich’s face is a crimson mask from the attack. Rich tries to make a comeback, but the odds are too much and he succumbs to a Hogan bearhug. Rich’s limp body is handcuffed to the cage. Mantell and Idol fight feverishly to break free from the handcuffs, but there is no hope. Randy Savage enters the cage and he, Flair, Hogan, and Bockwinkel tease and then pound away at Dutch, Austin, and Tommy for the next minute and a half. It’s time for Lawler’s team to send in another member. Lawler stands with one foot on the steps and eyes the hungry vultures in the ring. Jerry shakes his head and steps back down. Jerry starts mocking the four men in the ring and goading them to come out of the cage after him. Lawler even holds the cage door open. Savage takes the bait and bolts through the cage door. Lawler begins running around the cage with Savage in hot pursuit. Cornette and Kaufman try to get involved, but Fargo and Jarrett plant them back in their seats. The Plowboy wags his finger in front of Mohammed’s face warning him not to touch Jerry as he passes them. Savage is enraged that he can’t catch Lawler. The two minutes expire and Schultz and Savage surround Lawler and drag him into the cage after a great struggle from Lawler. Dundee was just a second too late in getting to Lawler and now, The King is left alone with all five members of Cornette’s Criminals. Lawler tries to duck and dodge, and manages to get a few shots in before he is overwhelmed. Lawler takes a brutal beating with each man taking their shots at The King. The time slowly ticks away and tears are seen streaming down the faces of ringsiders. The time elapses and Dundee begins to make his way into the cage when Jimmy Hart charges from the back. He stops Dundee on the top stair and fans out several $100 bills. Dundee slowly begins to walk down the ringside steps to the arena floor. Hart his jumping up and down and starts hugging Dundee. Hart offers Dundee his hand and Bill shakes it! Hart jumps up and down again and spins in place. This situation catches the eyes of the Criminals and they walk over to the side of the cage and show Dundee their approval. Hart hands the bills to Dundee. Bill pauses. Hart has a questioning look on his face when…..WHAMO!!! Dundee punches Hart and the money goes flying. During the distraction, Lawler manages to make it to his feet. Dundee rushes up the steps and bolts into the ring. He fights his way to Lawler and they stand back to back and fend off the fearsome fivesome. The King and The Superstar fight like their lives depend on it. Cornette’s men attack and attack, but Jerry and Bill manage to fight them off. Lawler pushes Schultz to the side of the cage where Idol is and Idol chokes the Southern Champion with the top rope. He manages to handcuff Schultz to one of the hanging pairs of handcuffs and spends the rest of the match fighting with Schultz as they are both handcuffed. Seeing this, Lawler and Dundee look at each other knowingly. They look for their chance and when it comes, they push Bockwinkel against the cage and help Rich handcuff him. It’s still three on two, but that’s still better than it was. Lawler and Dundee wage war with Flair, Hogan, and Savage. The heels start getting the edge, but Lawler and Dundee refuse to give in. Hogan pushes Lawler against the ropes while Dundee is double-teamed. Hogan backs up and runs at Lawler for a clothesline. Lawler moves and Hogan crashes into the cage. Lawler schoolboys Hogan and gets the three count. The sides are even! The fans go ballistic as Hogan is forced into the handcuffs. Lawler squares off with Flair and Dundee fights with Savage. The Gilberts and the Rock-n-Roll Express make their way to ringside and cheer on Lawler and Dundee. Soon, all four men are pouring blood from their heads. Flair manages to wrap Lawler in the figure four. Lawler fights it and Dundee turns his attention to helping The King. Big mistake! Savage knees Dundee in the back and sends Bill crashing to the mat. Lawler starts to reverse the figure four as Savage piledrives Dundee and gets the three count just as Flair has to release the hold. Dundee is handcuffed to the cage and now Lawler is outnumbered again. The King is weak and is having a hard time fighting back. Savage instructs Flair to hold Lawler and The Nature Boy complies. Savage climbs the turnbuckles. He turns around and pauses. Then, he climbs to the top of the cage. He gets shaky and almost loses his balance, but gathers himself back up. Savage leaps from his perch. At the last second, Lawler dodges to the left and Savage nails Flair with a double axe handle. Both Savage and Flair lay prone on the mat. Lawler crawls over and pins Flair, who is immediately handcuffed. Savage is trying to get to his feet as is Lawler. The two battered warriors go toe to toe in mid-ring. Finally, savage has Lawler down and goes in for the kill. He climbs the turnbuckles again and lifts his arms. He launches himself at his target. Summoning all the strength he has left, Lawler rolls out of the way and Savage crashes down with a failed elbow attempt. Lawler drapes an arm over Savage and Calhoun counts…1……2…….3!!!! Jerry Lawler has done it! He and his Court have saved Memphis wrestling! The fans erupt and blow the roof off of the Coliseum. Mantell, Rich, Idol, & Dundee are uncuffed and the five men celebrate with the Rock-n-Roll Express, the Gilberts, Frazier, Jarrett, and Fargo. The fan favorites make their way up the aisle as shouts of praise cascade down upon them. Meanwhile, Jim Cornette, Andy Kaufman, and Jimmy Hart enter the cage as the Criminals are uncuffed. The blame game starts and Cornette, Hart, and Kaufman begin arguing and shoving each other. The Criminals pull the managers apart and they all head to the dressing room amid catcalls from the fans. The managers continue their heated debate all the way to the dressing room.
WINNERS: JERRY LAWLER, BILL DUNDEE, AUSTIN IDOL, TOMMY RICH, & DUTCH MANTELL

Wow! Where do I begin here? So much actions and so many angles going on, I need a road map to follow everything! First, if one was to make a list of the Top 10 wrestlers active in this time frame, most or even all of them would be on one or both of these teams! Seriously dude. I think that cage match has more star power than any match I've seen even including real life!
Being this was in the CWA, you just had to figure Lawler would come out on tope, right? Even then, the way the match went was logical and believable. I don't often do this, but I'm giving this a perfect 100 out of 100 points! Congrats my friend!

Mike, I must admit, the way you wrote the story of the cage was masterful. Having the option of the wrestlers be physically handcuffed to the cage without being pinned was a detail that gave you some creativity avenues. Great rally with Dundee and Lawler putting grudges aside to overcome the odds. I wouldn't want to be Hart.

The match lived up to whatever hype it could have been given. The writing of the match itself was great (other than not being broken into paragraphs more - my coffee went cold waiting for a breather!).
But this saga was built very well with a lot of care. The premise could have been a flop without the continuous addition of drama and great cliff hangers, right up to the handcuff stips. I think you covered all the bases.
Except Hart - that was a lame effort by him BUT there is your fall-out teaser, so the story might not be over.
The work put into this is evident. And made for great reading.
