New show on locally this week in lovely Louisville or at least the first time my scanner has caught it. Ultimate Pro Wrestling. Looks like a lot of archive matches. Lets get to the action.



We start with a promo from the Ace, Cowboy Bob Orton. He says he is coming out of retirement to put into practice the ideas about sickness he's been reading from Stephen King. He loves the excitement of Pro Wrestling and he knows he's so good.



The first match is a USWA match between the Texas Ranger, Gary Young (accompanied to the ring by Skandar Akbar) and Jimmy Jack Funk in a mask Vs. Mask match. Young starts in control after dropping Funk onto the top rope out of a drop toe hold. He rakes the eyes then catches him with a knee. Funk fights back, but Young beats him down in the corner. Akbar gets in a cane shot as Young discusses the stock market with the ref. Young punches, punches, then breaks out a vertical suplex for 2. Young slooowly picks up Funk. Punch, punch, bite to the face. Funk finally fights back a little, but Young takes control back with a kick to the gut. A knee drop and a two count. The traditional go for the mask, but Funk fights him off and gets in a reverse atomic drop. Kick, kick and then a whip into the ropes by Funk into a neckbreaker! They both get up and do the cross rope thing and Funk tries to leapfrog over Young and seems to hurt his knee. But when Young goes in for the kill, Funk grabs him into a small package for the pin. After the match, Young just does want to show us his face and protests the mask removal. But eventually he has to or must leave the USWA. He removes his mask, but puts Akbar's hood over his head to hide his face from the world. Not too bad a match. Young's a good heel in this one.



The Ace, Cowboy Bob Orton Vs Sonny Austin. Never seen Austin before. Big old burley dude using the Stan Hansen gimmick. Lot of offense by Austin up front, including the dreaded snap mare into a chin lock. Orton pulls out a chickenwing suplex into a knee drop for two. He forearms him to the chest and breaks out his own chinlock, but Sonny won't submit. The Ace whips Austin to the ropes but telegraphs a back drop and Austin knees him to the head. Well, his knee almost touched Bob! The usual heel chokehold while the ref counts, including the one when the heel is explaining to the ref that he's not choking while a leg is choking the opponent across his neck. Nice. Orton back up, Irish whip into a short clothesline, then another whip into a dropkick nicely done! The Ace puts Austin up on the top buckle and executes a nice second rope superplex for the finish.



In an NAWA match a big Texas looking guy (Later revealed to be Hoss somebody) squashes a smaller guy. We don't really know either of their names because the commentators are talking about another match not on this show. Eventually Hoss pins the other dude then bails because Chief Jay Strongbow comes to the ring to break it up an issue a challenge to Hoss. Unfortunately, we don't see that match because we go to: (Without a break)



The Towers of Power (Awesome Al Dawson and Roadblock) Vs The Mad Russians.


Dawson manhandles the Russians for awhile. (they look too much alike for me to figure out if they are #1 and #2. Masked dudes. Eventually Roadblock comes in and manhandles them like crazy until a whip by Roadblock and pickup and carry of a Russian. The other one comes in and drop kicks his partner, sending him down on top of Roadblock. The second one piles on and the ref starts the count but Roadblock powers both of them up in the air on the kickout. Dawson comes in to clean house and lariats one of the Russians and Roadblock splashes on him from the second rope for the pin. Dawson had some talent, but I don't believe I have ever seen him. This was the wCw Roadblock.



The next match is another USWA match because Matt Bourne is taking on PY Choi (accompanied by Tojo Yamamoto) in a football rules match. They both wear football gear and must block each other out of the ring three consecutive times for the win. Bourne claims his SF 49ers helmet was faxed to him by Joe Montana. This one's a mess. Tojo got involved with the Kendo stick, but after about 10 merciful minutes (and an Ad Break), Bourne wins.



The final match is Steven Dane against Buster Blackheart, the Dog of War.


Dog starts out with a rake to the eyes and whip into the corner, then a reversal and arm lock by Dane. Whip & a cross-body into a 2 count for Dane, but the Dog gets away. Another whip by the Dog, but Dane leapfrogs him and gives him an Arm Drag into an arm bar. Dog Bites man for the reversal, but then Dane Irish whips him, gives him a lariat, a snap suplex, and a rake to the eyes with the boot. The he pick him up, Irish whips him leapfrogs him, then catches him for the DDP and the pin.



And we're out. The hour could have been much better if the commentator sound was better. I couldn't even hear the announcers most of the time. But, hey, old wrestling is old wrestling. I enjoyed it. Orton's not too bad. I figure that match was the most recent of the bunch. Because Orton looked pretty old, but still in pretty good shape.

Wait a minute. You mean THE Gary Young, the bald manager? His work with Paul Jones was a highlight of many of Solie's shows back in the day.

The scanner must have good timing because cowboy Bob was also on WWE Confidential, where he dissed his son for getting himself in the brig.

Yeah - like ges7184 says - they were different guys. I believe this is fabulous Gary Young.

I didn't catch Confidential this week (great blues show in town), but that's pretty interesting. I kind of assumed Randy was the Ace's kid, but wasn't sure

Low Ki' wasn't there because he's on ZERO-ONE's current tour in Japan. He just won the NWA International/UPW/Z1 Jr. Heavyweight Title from Spanky last week. NWA:TNA needs Spanky. NEEDS him.
