UWF CHRISTMAS EDITION

"I'm looking at the stars and all night bars
But this party isn't real
The only star I see is in his shirt
And the bars are made of steel
Those party lights lit up so bright
Just like a Christmas tree
When I see those party lights come on
The party's over for me"

Junior Brown, "Party Lights."

Check out Junior's Git With It CD/cassette if you get a chance. Heck, he's from Oklahoma and wears a cowboy hat and boots. He is also the only guy I know of who can channel Ray Price, Jimi Hendrix, Ernest Tubb, and surf guitar within the same song.

I'm still Charles Laffere and this is the UWF section of the fabulous Kayfabe Memories website. Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, Kwanzaa greetings, and Happy New Year to all. To our Canadian neighbors celebrating Boxing Day, someone from there please e-mail and explain that particular holiday and why there isn't a Wrestling Day as well.

Last time we met, I promised an end to the Freebirds' UWF saga. Terry Gordy, Buddy Roberts, and Michael Hayes headlined the final Superdome Extravanganza in New Orleans on August 1, 1987. The 'Birds took on Skandar Akbar's Devastation Inc. members Black Bart, Bubba Rogers and the Terminator in a Steel Cage First Blood Elimination match, at that time possibly the most stipulations assembled in a gimmick match. This ultimately turned out to be the final battle between the two warring factions. Roberts, as was usually his destiny, was eliminated first. The Terminator was then downed, while Hayes and Bart left simultaneously. Gordy and Rogers, who had been feuded ever since Bubba-- by now the former champ--had won the UWF World Heavyweight strap in April, faced each other to determine who would capture victory for his team. Both guys absolutely hammered each other before Gordy was able to gain an advantage. Despite attempts at interference from Akbar's nefarious crew, Gordy emerged victorious. Bam Bam was the sole survivor of the match and the big winner on the UWF's last "supercard."   More...
