Brassy fanfare over a set of clips of mat action!
Maple Leaf Wrestling presents
"SUPERSTARS OF WRESTLING"
All matches sanctioned by the National Wrestling Alliance - Vincent McMahon, President
Taped at the CHCH-TV (ch. 11) studios in Hamilton ON, Friday March 1st.
Syndicated broadcast on regional channels.
We open the show at ringside. Norm Kimber at being bushwacked yet again. And AGAIN we have the Moscow mouth, Chris Markoff with prized recruit Krusher Khrushchev.
CM: "Is Johnny Powers here today? I have been looked forwards all week to crush him! AND I want to get ANSWERS from Polish Militia! We have a NEW MAN so we can crush YOU three in one full swoops!"
NK: "When you RUDELY accosted me last week I WAS going to..."
KK: "SHUTS UP, LITTLE MAN! The COMRADE is in MIDDLE!"
CM: "Remember the Von Steigers? HAH! Kremlin say NYET to East Cherman coalition! Get COMMUNIST ALLY from other side of world...NOT CUBA, Castro play BASEBALL there! NOT China, they are COWARDS getting BIG HEADS, NOT Albania...well...chust NOT ALBANIA!"
NK: "What does that leave? The NDP Party here?"
CM: "SHUT UP, stupid little man! NEW ALLY is HERE! HO CHI WIN, BEST Viet Cong talent!"
Out comes guerilla-garbed bruiser. NICE pointy straw hat authenticates him as Viet Namese.
CM: "Say BYE BYE to Polish Militia!"
NK: "OK, Markoff, since you always have plenty to say, let me put YOU on the spot! What about the TAG TITLES, now that you are assembling a little gang?"
CM: "SOON! Kremlin make KINISKI top priority, eliminate Polish GOONS, everything, ALL titles NEXT!"
To the desk & we have Ron Martinez and Milt Avruskin picking their jaws up off the floor!
MA: "What a SHOCK, Markoff makes a statement adding the very large, very tough Ho Chi Win from Hanoi!"
RM: "Welcome again to "Superstars of Wrestling", fans! There is NO doubt that Maple Leaf Wrestling is becoming a MAGNET for stars from ALL over!"
MA: "As usual, we have a big show and Norm is ready to introduce our opening contest!"
Match 1 - Randy Scott vs. Mr. Florida
One fall 10 minutes
The red/white/blue masked man from Homasassa Florida awaits...HOLY COWBOY! Scott comes out in FULL cowboy duds, white hat, chaps, kit and kaboodle. Norm needs correcting, it's RANDOLPH SCOTT...back in the saddle again, podner! In workmanlike fashion, Scott counters the daring acrobatics of the masked man. After a high-energy criss-cross, Scott's Thesz press keeps the shoulders down just long enough
Result Match 1 - Randolph Scott pins Mr. Florida
Post-victory remarks from a drawling Scott.
RS: "Ain't right fer a man to be wearing a mask like that! Course, unless it's the Lone Ranger or maybe that Zorro south a' the Rio Grande! Hear tell, podner, a POSSE was here last week, roundin' up some CONVICT varmints. Where I come from, we string folk like that up from a TREE! Yuh see my white hat? Means RANDOLPH SCOTT is a-ridin' high again, and those who try any rustlin', stampedin' or anything else 'round here best watch out, podner!"
Yup, we get the strains of
as the white hat is donned.
COMMERCIAL 1 - This week's episode of "Superstars of Wrestling" brought to you in part by Toyota Canada, "Oh, what a feeling!"
We return and the lads are joined by Joyce Grable, the NWA Canadian Women's champ.
JG: "Great meeting you, Mr. Martinez. As I was saying, I headed back as quick as I could when the promoters called to say they were getting challengers from ALL over! I've only HEARD of Mitzi Mueller, the British champion!"
MA: "Ron & I were JUST commenting on the international interest in our promotion! Wrestlers from the Caribbean, Russia, Viet Nam, the United Kingdom, Japan...there's the bell!"
Match 2 - Vivian St. John vs. Mitzi Mueller
One fall 10 minutes
JG: "|I will defend my belt NEXT WEEK against the winner of the match...I have seen Vivian's work, she is no push-over".
But the British vet has the advantage, using a bit more Brit catch-style tactics.
RM: "Vivian best beware she doesn't end up tied in a knot!"
Poor Viv suffers exactly that fate, on the mat, she is turned every which way into an octopus hold submission. Referee Danny Marsh has learned to be VERY discreet about untangling the limbs and suchlike. Mitzi proudly takes the arm-raise.
RM: "Joyce, good luck next week against Mitzi Mueller and her unique European style!"
MA: "Fans, Maple Leaf Wrestling returns to Maple Leaf Gardens on SATURDAY MARCH 9th. Joyce Grable is scheduled to defend her belt there, as well, NWA Canadian Light Heavyweight champ Denny Brown gives an opportunity to Johnny War Eagle, who has fared very well of late!"
RM: "THAT might not set well with cocky new challenger "Mad Man" Meyers! Rocky Ed Boulder gets the chance for a measure of revenge against THE SOVIETS as he challenges Chris Markoff".
MA: "It was young Khrushchev that recently sent Ed's good friend Ron Ritchie out of action. But what a development for the MAIN EVENT! Sheik Ali teams with the current Television champion Ayatollah Siki to challenge the Caribbean Sunshine Boys for the tag titles! DON'T be left out, get your tickets TODAY!"
COMMERCIAL 2 - David Mainse asking that we join him, weekday mornings on "100 Huntley Street"
MA: "David Mainse jumping on the Maple Leaf Wrestling bandwagon! Holy...errr, doodle...Let's go to Mr. Dick Beddoes".
To the interview area with Dick Beddoes at the podium. As this is kind of FORMAL, NO hat or stogie.
DB: "The recent international crime drama of late showed some real HEROISM by many of the Maple Leaf organization. I have been asked by ANOTHER fine organization, the "Ontario Neighborhood Watch Program" to present today a special commendation! Please join me in saluting one of the REAL GOOD GUYS here...MR. ED BOULDER!"
Smilin' Ed is out, grinning, waving and pointing to his special deputy badge on his ring jacket.
DB: "Ed, without your valor, who knows how long the Alabama Chain Gang's reign of terror would have lasted?"
ROCKY ROCKY ROCKY is chanted.
REB: "Gosh, Mr. Beddoes it was REAL nip an' tuck! Sure makes me 'preciate the real PRO's like Trooper Johnny, Officer Judy...AN' Constable Trixie! What;s that you got there?"
DB: "This, my humble do-gooding friend is a framed certificate of appreciation, recognizing volunteer crime-fighters...HEY, DO YOU MIND!!! LOOK OUT, ED!!!"
TOO LATE, Ayatollah Siki, Sheik Ali and Bruce have invaded! OH MY LORD, the frame is SMASHED over Boulder's head, it's twisted around his neck...broken glass flying...
Big red "X" covers the action
Ed has slumped out of the shot, Beddoes has wisely fled...leaving an OPEN MIC for SIKI!
AS: "We ALL proud of ole Rock-head Ed, we didn't knows WHUT ta get him! HEY, Bruce? Ain't I s'posed to have a title match with the big HEEEE-ro soon?"
BB: "I think you're RIGHT, O fearless leader! HANG ON, it's TODAY!"
AS: " 'magine THAT! Well GOOD LUCK, ROCK-HEAD!"
Punctuated by what appears to be all three putting the boots to out-of-shot Ed.
Back to the broadcast desk. Looks of SHOCK!
MA: "I'm, I'm...speechless! These DEPRAVED, DASTARDLY men have sunk to a NEW LOW! Oh my, Ed was getting a reward..."
RM: "It was DESPERATION, I think! Rocky Ed Boulder makes a GREAT challenger for the belt...Maybe we should STOP letting the Arabian Knights know who faces Siki so they can't plan such a devious ambush! Well, I guess we won't be seeing THAT match today, folks! AND, what a message they just sent to the TAG champions, as well!"
COMMERCIAL 3 - Follow THE GREAT ROOT BEAR to your local A & W
Milt is MORE dismayed!
MA: "When it rains, it POURS, fans - after what we just witnessed from Sheik Ali's FIENDS, take a gander at THAT!"
Meaning, the Communists having a PARTY in the ring! Markoff has the mic...AGAIN!
CM: "See? We look bigger and tougher ups here in ring! EFFRY ONES, take GOOD LOOK! Come out, come out, where effer you ares! Kiniski, Caribbean Beach Bums, Convicts, EVEN YOU TOO, Kowalski, Sheik Brucie! And ED BOULDER, look like YOU just lost your chance to face me at big Gardens show!"
Krusher joins the trash talk: "Come IN, brave JOHNNY POWERS, make THREATS to us".
By golly gosh, that is intimidating! Did he mention...
BUDDY ROBERTS? Well THAT is EXACTLY who is at the desk, holding Milton's mic.
BR: "Over HERE, Jerkoff, you, too...what's the NEW GUY? Hoochie Koochie? Ho Chi? WOW, I QUIT! I RETIRE FROM WRESTLING, right HERE, right NOW, JACK! THAT right up there, SCARES me, ALLLLL ta death!'
Markoff suspects sarcasm & barks back!
CM: "Hah, I FORGOTS, Hollywood Bombs...NYET, YOU FORGOT! YOU FIRED THEM, ROBERTS!"
BR: "Didn't think you wuz payin' attention, JACK! I BIN BUSY, I got somethin' on the go, might just blow you goofs right outta the water...NEXT WEEK, JACK! Now, I'm gonna sit right bloody well HERE an' watch you morons trip over yourselves..."
MA: "Errr, I guess we'll be having comments from our unexpected guest, Buddy Roberts, who I THOUGHT was out of town..."
BR: "Got THAT right, Jack - WAYYYYY outta town! Here comes POWERS, looks like he don't think mucha them Commie clowns..."
Referees are scurrying to make this a one on one...Security rustles up the extra Socialists, steers them to the exit, Krusher has words for Buddy! And Buddy has a gesture in response...
BR: "And THIS one's fer the horse you rode in on, JACK!"
Match 3 - Johnny Powers vs. Chris Markoff
One fall 10 minutes
The bell sounds and we have a tilt!
Buddy in a loquacious mood.
BR: "Lookit dum-dum Markoff, whinin' about his pals gittin' the heave-ho, WHAT a maroon! Ya make a spectacle of yourself like that, COURSE it's gonna backfire! The refs, promoters, a guy like Powers or me, EVERYBODY is gonna take care of business!"
Armbar and a takeover by Powers.
RM: "Buddy we JUST witnessed another show of force..."
BR: "Yah, I dun seen that! See, losers like Ali, Markoff, Kowalski they don't got what I got! THE SMARTS, the brains, the psychology I learnt from DAY ONE! I MIGHTA brought MY NEW TEAM out, have a go at Markoff's palookas...whut's the point? I fired Rip Hawk, 'cause HE was clueless".
Lanky Markoff's best moves thus far is being able to get rope breaks. Powers motors on relentlessly.
BRL "Johnny Powers, like him or not, he didn't go off all half-cocked, an' Markoff still don't got his head in the match..."
Chris desperately dives through the ropes to escape.
MA: "Well, WHO ARE the men you've got coming?"
No response. Buddy is bored watching Powers chase Chris around the floor.
BR: "I heard ya".
Back on the mat, Powers has an ankle lock planned but gets snagged by a knee.
RM: "I believe Mr. Roberts will answer that on his terms. But, it DID ssem the nefarious attack earlier on Ed Boulder was productive..."
BR: "Lissen up harder, boys! Like I said, things are gonna BACKFIRE! Siki AIN'T gonna be crackin' jokes when he finds out how flipping MAD Ed Boulder IS! He's out for PAYBACK, Jack! That match today is GO TIME!"
Speaking of "GO", that is Markoff's very NEXT maneuver! Powers has kicked him to the floor and with a litany of complaints and bombastic threats...he backs his way to the locker room as he is counted out. A final BARB from Buddy!
BR: "NICE strategy, idiot!"
BR: "Real nice talkin' to ya...see ya in the funny papers!"
In the ring, Johnny Powers gets his arm raised to a good hand. NO mic work, actions spoke louder than words today!
MA: "A VERY cool and confident Buddy Roberts has SOMETHING in his back pocket!"
RM: "And THE SOVIETS had BETTER have a PLAN B in THEIR pocket! We'll be RIGHT back...JACK!"
COMMERCIAL 4 - Hinterland Who's Who, "The Pocket Gopher"
Ring announcer Norm Kimber tends to the live Maple Leaf tour heading to
Windsor on Saturday the 2nd, Sunday March 3rd in Burlington, Monday 4th in Paris, Wednesday in St. Thomas, Thursday the 7th in Peterborough and BACK to Maple Leaf Gardens on MARCH 9th!
Crowd going bonkers, NOT over Norm, but...
ROCKY! ROCKY! ROCKY! ROCKY! ROCKY! ROCKY!
Big bandage on the forehead, a few medium sized ones on arms and shoulders, the challenger is in the house looking WAY determined.
MA: "Fans, for the past half hour, Dr. Morgan & Nurse Gale haved been pulling shards of glass out of Ed with tweezers - I hear he didn't flinch ONCE, not even for the iodine!"
RM: "Buddy Roberts made the call earlier on "Superstars of Wrestling", this HAS to be one motivated Boulder!"
And Bruce & the Ayatollah could not be any more tentative about entering! Brucie only as far as the announce desk.
BB: "WHERE is the ring doctor? I think Boulder lost a LOT of blood when...when he dropped that plaque thing on himself! I smell TETANUS, RABIES, A LAWSUIT if this match is allowed to continue!"
Ayatollah Siki has made it to the timekeeper's desk for a mic!
AS: "Yeah, yore lookin'...kinda pale an' DIZZY there, Boulder, ya know, TOO light-headed to know whut yer doin'...."
Rocky knows he gonna FLY NOW! Up to the top buckle and DOWN with a fistdrop! Siki is DOA, KO'ed and NOT A-OK!
RM: "There has been NO BELL, Milt! Siki is laying there like a side of beef in a meat locker, still wrapped in robe, head raggie thing and the belt! Bruce is GLUED to the floor next to us!"
Dead serious Ed gestures to the swami of managers, Brucie ain't planning on "come get some" this day. Dang, even referee Cashman looks severely disappointed at having to prod Norm into issuing the unpopular verdict...
"As a result of a DISQUALIFICATION, AYATOLLAH SIKI is awarded the match, and retains the TV title..."
- BOOOOOOO!!! -
"AND advances to the TOP STEP OF THE GOLDEN LADDER!"
Marsh & Yorkston drag THE WINNAH away. Brucie still a bit paralyzed as a VERY grim-faced NWA Rep Lord Athol Layton approaches.
Fuming Layton is lambasting Bruce.
LAL: "That's right, I'm sickened by such a callow, craven exhibition of utter cowardice! A shameless display all around deserving....drawing and quartering! Your peroxide parasite Siki advancing in the most dastardly, unmanly, undeserving fashion that could NOT be more embarassing!"
Embarassed silence for a sec.
MA: "Your Lordship, it is a most, well, SHOCKING thing that Ayatollah Siki is ONE match away from winning the Golden Lottery reward..."
LAL: "Indeed! One step from making a SHAMBLES of the idea, all of Canadian wrestling becoming a laughing-stock".
Bruce takes a stab with cracking voice.
BB: "Ehhh, BUT rules ARE rules, I'm done listening to these insults..."
Layton with eyes a-blaze!
BB: "Ah, I mean..carry on".
LAL: "Unfortunately I can find no reason to suspend or strip Siki,,,I DO apologize to the fans for this CHARADE! No, Mr. Avruskin, I'll do the draw myself as I will be the one with egg on his face..."
Stirs his hand around the barrel.
LAL: "Unless, we have a fortuitous draw, the name of a man who might possibly set things straight..."
Card is pulled, Layton clasps a hand over his eyes.
LAL: "I can't bear to look..."
Milt has the card, dramatic pause before holding it up to the camera. Bruce may be wetting himself...
MA: "Come on, baby needs a new pair of shoes....LUMBERJACK JEAN PIERRE!"
Hooting roars off-camera, the QUEBEC LUMBERJACKS - axes aloft - are out! Crowd decides they GOTS to cheer 'em! Bruce decides HE GOTS to leave...NOT fast enough, he's boxed in as Jean Pierre roars.
LJP: "HI WIN, hi am a MILLIONAIRE! LUCKY, lucky Jean Pierre!"
LM: "NO money, this is BETTER! Siki, Swayze an' Sheik Ali are ALL OLD FRIENDS! HA-HA! We ave paying BACKS to do, Jean Pierre, eh, Bruce? Let's go wake hup Siki, tell him GOOD NEWS! Hahahaha!"
RM: "Can the Lumberjacks make the last stand, OH that will be a great match next week! Fans, let's go to the ring for the final match of today's program!"
Match 5 - Moose Morowski vs. "Ski-Hi" Randy Morse
One fall 10 minutes
We have the bell and two rangy characters hook up.
MA: "Newcomer "Ski Hi" Morse IS a big fellow, but certainly NOT "nearly 7 feet tall" as I hear some less scrupulous promoters have billed him".
RM: "Nevertheless, he is taller than the Moose by several inches...my guess is he's well over 6'6". Interesting, do you think there is a chance he is one of the new men BUDDY ROBERTS has hinted about?"
MA: "I think the brash Roberts is not likely to be so subtle. Fans, on NEXT week's show we'll have a TON of title matches! Of course, we look forward to seeing Joyce Grable face British champ Mitzi Mueller, the BIG TV title match, PLUS Denny Brown AND The Caribbean Sunshine Boys see action!"
Clubbering & stiff blows continue in the ring.
RM: "Well, ponder this, as well! IF Siki gets past Lumberjack Jean Pierre and getts his choice of ANY match...might we see David Von Erich arrive in Kitchener later in March...to face THE AYATOLLAH?"
Morse is down, Moose is stretching & kicking the quads.
MA: "The Ayatolloh, last seen today imitating a sack of dirt? Hmmm, let's NOT ponder that!"
Spinning toe hold and the new guy in discomfort, NOW a single-leg crab for the "I QUIT" for Uncle Moose!
Morowski closes things out today with some STERN words!
MM: "Thanks, Norm! CHRIS MARKOFF made a challenge today. THAT IS, he made a challenge BEFORE Johnny Powers showed what a SOVIET SISSY he is! IF Markoff does NOT renege, we GET that NEXT week! Me, Gene and Kelly Kiniski against Khrushchev, Markoff and Who Chi Win!"
MM: "Who HO?"
NK: "Not HOW, errr, the guy with the hat..."
MM: "WHAT HO? HAT Chi Win, then..."
Rimshot, thanks for coming.

Way to profile Markoff. Like that Powers was chosen to get the job done. When Boulder recovers, Siki and the boys will get his. I am stoked to see who Roberts will be bringing in. The Randolph Scott stuff is a hoot.
