 - Charles Laffere 

“Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum
Hoist the mainsail - here I come
Ain't no room on board for the insincere
You're my witness
I'm your mutineer

I was born to rock the boat
Some may sink but we will float
Grab your coat - let's get out of here
You're my witness
I'm your mutineer”

“Mutineer,” Warren Zevon

My prayers go out to Warren Zevon and his family as he continues to battle against terminal cancer. During his current tour, Bob Dylan has been covering several Zevon tunes.  I have four Warren Zevon albums and they have songs that could fit perfectly as entrance themes for wrestlers, especially heels… 

“I'm very well acquainted with the seven deadly sins
I keep a busy schedule trying to fit them in
I'm proud to be a glutton and I don't have time for sloth
I'm greedy and I'm angry and I don't care who I cross

I'm Mr. Bad Example, an intruder in the dirt
I like to have a good time and I don't care who gets hurt
I'm Mr. Bad Example, take a look at me
I'll live to be a hundred and go down in history”

“Mr. Bad Example,” Warren Zevon

Hello, my name is Charles Laffere, and welcome to the November 2002 edition of my Universal Wrestling Federation Kayfabe Memories. This time, I was going to continue our look at the early months of 1987, but first a bit of a rewind is due. Dating back to 1976, Bill Watts’ wrestling promotion held supercards at the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans. Starting in 1980 Mid-South would hold an annual card on or close to Thanksgiving Day. The first UWF Thanksgiving “Superdome Extravaganza” was held on November 27, 1986. The UWF had more cards at the ‘Dome after this, but the show that night was the last truly big draw the company enjoyed at the stadium, with 13,000 in attendance for 13 matches…  

Some prayers never reach the sky
Some wars never end
Some dreams refuse to die
Next time I would rather break than bend

I am a renegade
I've been a rebel all my days
I am a renegade

I've been a rebel all my days

Warren Zevon, “Renegade” 

So what happened that night? For one thing, this was a “UWF only” card, with the stars on loan from other promotions that had frequented previous Superdome cards absent. Since Bill Watts wanted to be the biggest promotion in the universe and due to the increasingly competitive and generally constrictive nature of wrestling promotions—with the exception of the WWF, of course-- in 1986, it made sense to present the company’s product on a stand alone basis. So, with that in mind, fans we treated to an opening match of…

Jeff Gaylord and Art Crews ? Yep, you’ve got it, a match featuring fellow Kayfabe Memories scribe Art Crews, a/k/a/ The Kansas Cowboy,a/k/a  The Blonde Bomber!   More...
