Prime Time Pro Wrestling results from October 24 at the Event Center in Columbus, GA: Rob Adonis over Josh Stone, Sal Rinauro beat Frankie Valentine, Southside Trash over Mysterious J.O.B. & Mean Mark Knight, Bulldog Raines & Colt Derringer went to a double DQ. Both men were also suspended for next week due to intentionally roughing referee Steve Miller. Promoter Billy Roper stopped the match after the second deliberate assault on the referee and got in a heated nose-to-nose discussion that ended with Derringer’s suspension. Derringer threatened the promotion with legal action if Bulldog Raines was not also suspended for his part in the assault. Derringer announced that since he was already suspended, he might as well enjoy himself. He was joined by the other half of Evil Inc, Rob Adonis, for a beatdown on Raines. Southside Trash made the save. Roper made a six man tag match in two weeks when Derringer and Raines return from suspension. Simon Sermon & Thomas Britain (with Sir Charles Donovan) vs. Ace Rockwell & Chip Day ended as a draw when Donovan rang the bell at 18 minutes into the 20 minute time limit.

Bad Company (David Young & Chris Stevens) beat J.P. Money & Associates (Deathrow & Jake Slater with J. P. Money) Young started the match by himself due to the backstage beating Stevens took from Money & Associates before the first match.

Bell time is 7:30 pm. Promoter Billy Roper stated that this date, opposite Great Championship Wrestling’s “Halloween Scream” show across the river in Phenix City, AL, is a one time only deal.

Jablonski and Plunkett traded promos and were said to be in rare form. There will be no USWO shows next weekend. After some surveying, the promotion decided not to run on Halloween, and Saturday night is Tennessee State’s homecoming at the Stadium.

USWO owner Tony Falk announced that Arrick Andrews and Chris Michaels would be at the next show on November 7 (Showtime All-Star Wrestling is taping on Saturday that weekend), as well as Shane Eden and the return of Hangin’ Tough. Falk also announced a Thanksgiving night show. He said it was Bill Dundee’s 65th birthday and that Dundee would be appearing for USWO sometime in November.
