Strangler. The other side would be the team of the Funking Conservatory Women's Champion Dixie The Diva Of Domination (3D)
and the Funking Conservatory Triple Crown Champion The Royal Stud Adam Windsor.
Adam and Sledgehammer would start for their respective teams. Adam backed Sledgehammer into the corner and came away
with a clean break. Adam turned and noticed his arch enemy Bonecrusher sitting at ringside.
With Adam distracted, Sledgehammer brought him down to the mat with an armdrag. Sledgehammer would bring Adam back
down to the mat with a headlock takedown, but Adam quickly escaped the headlock. Adam caught Sledgehammer with an armbar
and then followed up with an armdrag back into the armbar. Adam then made the tag to Dixie.
Dixie took over on the armbar on Sledgehammer, but Sledgehammer easily reversed the armbar into an armbar of his own on
Dixie. Sledgehammer then gave Dixie an armdrag, but Dixie rolled right back over catching Sledgehammer in the armbar once
again. Sledgehammer forced Dixie into the corner where he would make the tag to the Strangler.
Strangler started off by choking Dixie in the corner with his boot. After the two locked up, Dixie caught Strangler with three
armtwists sending him down to the mat and followed up with two legdrops on Strangler's arm. Once Dixie reapplied the armbar,
she made the tag to Adam.
Adam came in and applied a modified abdominal stretch on Strangler. The Claw asked Strangler if he wanted to give up and he
replied no. Adam went back to the armbar, but Strangler reversed the hold into a form of the full nelson. Strangler brought Adam
back to his corner to make the tag to Sledgehammer.
Sledgehammer came back in and went to work on Adam with a series of blows to the midsection and followed up with a suplex.
Sledgehammer went for a cover, but Adam kicked out at two. Sledgehammer tried to put Adam away with a big bodyslam.
Sledgehammer went for another cover, but Adam kicked out at two again.
Sledgehammer continued with another suplex and went for the cover again, but Adam would kick out once again at two.
Sledgehammer tried another bodyslam, but like before Adam kicked out at two. Sledgehammer then tried a clothesline and tried
the cover again, but Adam kicked out at two yet again.
Adam tried to fight back with blows to the head of Sledgehammer, but Sledgehammer sent Adam back down with a forearm to
the back. Once again Sledgehammer attempted to whip Adam into the ropes, but Adam reversed the whip and sent Sledgehammer
down to the mat with a reverse elbow smash. Adam then placed Sledgehammer in the corner and went to work with a chop, a
kneelift, and three European uppercuts. Adam then made the tag to Dixie.
Dixie and Adam gave Sledgehammer a double whip into the ropes. Adam gave Sledgehammer a kick to the midsection while
Dixie beautifully executed a neckbreaker on Sledgehammer. Dixie went for the cover, but Sledgehammer easily kicked out at two.
Dixie tried the cover again, but Sledgehammer kicked out at two again. Dixie made the tag back to Adam.
Adam went to work on Sledgehammer with three powerful European uppercuts and followed up with a high vertical suplex.
Adam went for the cover, but Sledgehammer again kicked out at two. Adam whipped Sledgehammer into the ropes and went for a
clothesline which turned into a double clothesline sending both men down.
At this point of the match, Bonecrusher chased Dixie into the ring with a chair. Bonecrusher was planning to hit Adam over the
head with the chair like he has done several times before. Dixie stood in front of Adam to shield him. As Adam stood up, Dixie
dropped to one knee and delivered a low blow to ADAM!!!! Dixie had turned on her own partner and Bonecrusher then cracked the
chair over Adam's head. The Claw called for the bell ruling Adam and Dixie the winners via DQ.
At this point, everyone in the ring was stomping away on Adam until Manny Montana tried to make the save, but he was met by
Bonecrusher's chair, knocking him out cold. The ring did clear when Coach Dory Funk, Jr. came in to save Adam. Bonecrusher was
the only one who stayed in the ring and then proceeded to shove Dory not once, not twice, but three times. Dory decided he had
taken enough and gave Bonecrusher a high kneelift. As Dory went for the spinning toehold, Bonecrusher was dragged out by his
"friends". This situation with Adam and Bonecrusher is far from over.
The final segment on today's show was a video
with highlights on the career of The Royal Stud Adam Windsor. Adam talked
about how he became a professional wrestler and of some of his inspirations being Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart. Clips of some of
his greatest matches were shown with opponents such as Chuck Reid, Chris Vaughn, Bonecrusher, TNT Travis Taylor, U.K. Kid, and
the great Osamu Nishimura. Adam also talked about how when people told him that he would never make it as a wrestler, he was
going to prove them wrong.
The clip from August 28, 1999 was shown with 120 pound Adam Windsor and his tag team partner Terry Sinner facing the team of
Jeremy Jett and H.C. Loc. This was Adam's very first match. Both Jett and Loc pummeled on Adam, but he would bounce back to
help his team win the match.
The next set of clips was from Adam's very first Florida title defense when he faced his mentor, Dory Funk, Jr.. Adam said that
this was one of his toughest matches. Dory would have control through most of the match, but Adam once again rebounded and
defeated the former NWA World Heavyweight Champion with a submission hold to retain the Florida Championship.
