     Hello everyone and welcome to another edition of the !BANG! TV Report.
!Big News! Terry Funk will be appearing at the next !BANG! television taping.
Today's program started off with NWA Wildside's Blackout, Rainman and Murder
One, jumping in the ring and attacking the Funking Conservatory Triple Crown
Champion, The Royal Stud Adam Windsor. Blackout continued to pummel Adam
until Dory Funk Jr. came into the ring to make the save. Once outside the ring.
Blackout issued a challenge to Adam for a tag team match and he could pick any
partner of his choice. Adam announced that he had already made his choice. It
would be none other than the living legend, Dory Funk Jr. Murder One protested
by saying that Adam had to choose a wrestler, not a legend. The last time this
reporter saw, Dory may be a legend but he IS a wrestler. The match was set
for later in the evening.

     The time came for the match to begin. Adam and Dory were in the ring and
Blackout made their way to the ring accompanied by the First Lady of
Wrestling, the lovely Missy Hyatt. The match started off with Rainman against
Dory. Dory gained control on Rainman with a headlock takedown. Rainman rose
to his feet and pushed Dory into the corner. Rainman made the tag to Murder
One just as Dory pulled away from the corner. Dory then took Murder One down
with the headlock takedown just like he did with Rainman. Dory kept the
headlock on Murder One as he made his way to the corner and tagged in Adam.
Adam took Murder One down as well with the headlock takedown. Adam tried for
a quick cover, but Murder One kicked out at two. Murder One pulled Adam over
for a pinning attempt, but Adam kicked out at two. Adam kept the headlock on
Murder One as he made the tag to Dory. Dory took Murder One and gave him a
huge forearm uppercut. Dory then took Murder One back down one more time
with the headlock takedown. Dory went for a cover, but Murder One kicked out
at two. Murder One managed to make it to his corner to tag Rainman back in.

Dory took Rainman down for a pinning attempt, but Rainman kicked out at two.
Rainman caught Dory in a headlock, but Dory countered with the schoolboy
rollup for the cover, but Rainman grabbed the ropes at two. Dory then made
the tag back to Adam. Adam took Rainman back down to the mat with an armdrag
followed up by an armbar. Adam went for a cover, but Rainman kicked out at
two again. Adam took Rainman back to the mat with a fireman's carry back into
an armbar. Adam made the tag to Dory. Dory whipped Rainman into the ropes and
caught him with a back elbow smash followed up with a forearm uppercut. Dory
went for the cover, but Rainman again kicked out at two. Dory made another
quick tag to Adam, who caught Rainman in a fireman's carry followed up by an
armbar.  Adam whipped Rainman into the roped and caught him with a
clothesline followed up by a swinging elbow drop and leg drop. Adam went for
a cover, but once again Rainman kicked out at two. Adam went back to the
armbar on Rainman and once again made the tag to Dory. Dory took over with
the armbar and gave Rainman two kicks to the midsection. Rainman tried to tag
Murder One but Dory pulled his arm back and gave him a side Russian legsweep.
Dory went for a cover, but Rainman kicked out at two. Dory tried the cover
again, but Rainman kicked out again at two. Dory then hooked Rainman and put
him in the double arm suplex. Dory tried for the cover, but somehow Rainman
kicked out at two again. Dory made the tag to Adam who came in and gave
Rainman a kick and kneelift to the midsection and followed up with a high
vertical suplex. Adam went for a cover and again Rainman kicked out at two.
Adam took Rainman back down to the mat with a snap mare followed up by a drop
kick to the back. Adam tried the cover again, and you guessed it, Rainman
kicked out at two. Adam kept on Rainman's left arm with the double wrist
lock.

Adam tagged Dory back in. Dory kept up the momentum with an armlock on
Rainman. Dory whipped Rainman into the ropes and went for a back body drop,
but Rainman countered with a kick to Dory's chest. Rainman was finally able
to tag a fresh Murder One back into the ring. Murder One picked up the living
legend and gave him a huge bodyslam. Murder One went for a cover, but Dory
kicked out at two. As Murder One worked on Dory's arm, Dory got behind him
and went for the schoolboy pinning combination, but Murder One was able to
kick out at two. Dory once again made the tag to Adam. The Royal Stud pushed
Murder One into the corner, gave him two forearm uppercuts, whipped him into
the opposite corner, and caught him with the running clothesline. Adam
followed up with another forearm uppercut and a dropkick to the stomach of
Murder One. Adam made the tag to Dory and the two of them put Murder One into
a double suplex. Dory then dropped the elbow on Murder One and went for a
cover, but Murder One kicked out at two. Dory dropped the elbow again and
went for another cover, but Murder One again kicked out at two. Dory then
hooked Murder One into an abdominal stretch. Referee Claudia "The Claw" Reiff
asked Murder One if he wanted to give up, but he said no. Dory rolled Murder
On back for the pin, but Murder One got a foot on the ropes calling for the
hold to be broken. Murder One tagged Rainman back into the match.

Rainman caught Dory with a side headlock. Dory pushed Rainman into the ropes but
Rainman caught Dory with a shoulder tackle. Rainman went for a cover, but
Dory kicked out at two. Rainman tried to punch Dory, but Dory countered with
a forearm and a bodyslam. Dory then tagged Adam back in. Adam gave Rainman
two forearm uppercuts and went for the pin, but Rainman kicked out at two.
Adam whipped Rainman into the ropes and went for a clothesline, but Rainman
countered with a version of the Rock Bottom. Rainman went for a cover, but
Adam kicked out at two. Rainman tagged Murder One back into the match. Murder
One went to work on Adam with a series of closed fists to Adam's head. Murder
One set Adam on the ropes and then distracted The Claw. Missy Hyatt took the
opportunity and slapped Adam. Murder One went for the cover, but Adam put his
foot on the ropes at two, which called for the break even though Missy pushed
Adam's foot off the ropes. Murder One tried a modified version of the
surfboard. The Claw asked Adam if he wanted to give up, but he said no.

Murder One made the tag to Rainman and they gave Adam a double whip into the
ropes. Murder One dropped down and Rainman connected with a dropkick on Adam.
Murder One followed up with an elbow drop before he left the ring. Rainman
went for the cover, but Adam again kicked out at two. Rainman then tried a
sidewalk slam on Adam. Rainman tried another cover, but Adam was able to kick
out at two. Rainman made the tag to Murder One, who came in the ring and
repeatedly kicked Adam in the back. Murder One then applied a choke hold on
Adam, much to the delight of Missy, but The Claw saw what was happening and
immediately called for the break. Murder One whipped Adam into the ropes and
caught him in a rotating bodyslam. Murder One went for the cover, but Adam
kicked out at two. Murder One tagged Rainman back in and both members of
Blackout caught Adam in a human wishbone. Rainman whipped Adam into the ropes
and went for a clothesline, but Adam ducked. Both men bounced off the ropes
and caught each other in a double clothesline. Both Adam and Rainman
struggled to reach their corners, but Rainman tagged his partner first. Adam
went to tag Dory, but Murder One grabbed his leg. Adam countered with the
sigiry kick to the head and made the tag to Dory.

Dory came in and gave Murder One a huge forearm uppercut and followed up with
a suplex. Dory went for the cover, but Murder One kicked out at two. Dory then
gave Murder One a bodyslam and made the tag back to Adam. Adam went right
for the cover, but Murder One again kicked out at two. Adam placed Murder One
against the ropes and gave him a huge chop. Adam then attempted to whip Murder
One into the ropes, but Murder One reversed and Adam was tripped by Missy as
he bounced off the ropes. Adam made the tag to Dory and then stormed out of the
ring after Missy. Just as Adam was about to knock her lights out, he was stopped
by Lady Tiffany. She told Adam it was her fight and then turned and slapped
Missy. The catfight on the outside was on and they started to take it to the
back with The Claw in pursuit trying to separate the two women. With the
referee distracted, Rainman had brought a steel chair into the ring. As Dory
went to finish off Murder One, Murder One gave Dory a low blow and was
getting ready to hit Dory with the chair. Luckily, Adam grabbed the chair out
of Murder One's hands and used it to smack Murder One right in between the
eyes. Adam then smacked Rainman in the head with the chair as well. As Adam
turned around, Lost Boy Azreal came from the back and pulled Adam out of the
ring. Another out of the ring fight began between Adam and Azreal. For the
first time in her career, The Claw was rapidly losing control of a match. As
she tried to separate Adam and Azreal, Dory was taking care of business in
the ring by avoiding a kneelift in the corner by Murder One. Murder One hit
his knee on the middle turnbuckle sending down to the mat in pain. Dory knew
it was time for the one move that had won him many matches, the spinning toe
hold, Dory applied the hold perfectly on Murder One and he was ready to tap
out. The only problem was that there was no referee. Just as The Claw made it
back into the ring, Rainman had come off the top rope with a huge blow to
Dory's back. Adam and Azreal continued to fight on the outside. Both members
of Blackout picked Dory up and gave him a double whip into the ropes. As Dory
came off the ropes, Blackout lifted him up and executed the move they called
the blackout. Murder One made the cover and The Claw made the three count.

     After Dory was able to get to his feet, he took the microphone and
promised Blackout that he, Terry Funk and The Royal Stud would get revenge and
kick their butts next month at the next !BANG! television tapings.

     Speaking of the next !BANG! TV taping, that event is titled "Mean Feast"
and will be taking place on Saturday night November 23 at the Dory Funk Arena
in Ocala, FL. The main event will be Team Wildside of Blackout & Azreal of
the Lost Boyz taking on Team Conservatory of the Funking Conservatory Triple
Crown Champion The Royal Stud Adam Windsor and his partners, both former
NWA World Heavyweight Champions, Dory & Terry Funk. You read it right,
folks. Terry Funk will be at the Dory Funk Arena with his brother, Dory Funk Jr.
This show will also mark the very long awaited return of Funking Conservatory
European Champion and Adam Windsor's "Brit Pack" tag team partner, Neil
Faith. As always the ever popular "Claw" who is the "Law" will be officiating
the action. See you all next week.
