Midnight Rockers vs Cornette's Midnight Express (either one)

A feud with Lane and Eaton in 87 or 88 could have been great.

And as good as the Rockers vs Playboy/Pretty Boy feud in 86 into early 87 was, imagine if that was Loverboy Dennis and Beautiful Bobby w/Jame E instead?

Savage beat Taylor on 12/26/83 in Memphis for the Mid America HVWT title.

This was shortly after Savage debuted for Jarrett. I 'm not sure if they had any rematches but  Taylor was in Mid South no later than April '84.

Brisco won the Missouri State Title from Backlund in St. Louis. Backlund then got a rematch. A two match St. Louis feud. But not on the scale you are looking for.

Rick Rude vs. Randy Savage, over Elizabeth. (Yes, I know they feuded in Memphis.) Done right, I truly believe this feud could have carried the entire company for another year of Savage holding the WWF title.

Roddy Piper vs. Michael Hayes, just for the mic spots. The great thing here is that it would have been just as good no matter who was in which role.

British Bulldogs vs. The Rock 'n Roll Express, as mentioned. And it came sooo close to happening in Mid-South, too. Curse you, Cowboy Bill.

Tully Blanchard vs. Arn Anderson. Had Tully been brought back to WCW in 1989, I would have much preferred this to a stale Horsemen reunion.

If Blanchard had made it back to WCW in 1989, I would have preferred to see the Flair vs. Horsemen feud that never happened.  It would have been fun to see Flair and Sting against a Luger (who was pretty red-hot as a heel at that time) led Horsemen unit.  The Steiners/Tully & Arn feud that certainly would have resulted at that time would have been fun, too.

A face Dutch Mantel vs. Arn Anderson in Memphis.

Lawler/Backlund would've been Money.

How close did it come from happening?  I remember a King's Court when Lawler boasted he could escape the chicken wing, and when Backlund put it on Lawler said "I quit..." [Backlund releases hold] "...this interview.  I quit this interview.  It's over.  Look!  Bret the Hitman Hart!" [Backlund looks around, Lawler runs off in the opposite direction]

Snuka vs Savage would have done all kinds of crazy money IMO

Taylor was in Mid-South for the first of January 1984. 

Savage coming to Jarrett was part of the deal with Watts where Dundee and several Memphis guys went over to Mid-South.  Watts says he brokered the deal between Savage/Poffo and Jarrett/Lawler. Lanny was working for Watts at the time.  The Midnights were the first to debut on TV around Thanksgiving, but didn't get involved in anything until the New Year.  Tayolr debuted right at the New Year, too. Then Buddy Landell, then the RnR.   If the Memphis deal with Dundee hadn't been done, I believe Savage would have come to Mid-South. They were already talking about him on Mid-South TV.

I would have loved to have seen Killer Kowalski vs Gene Kiniski.

Taylor was working for both Watts & Jarrett in'84. In fact, when Taylor was Mid South TV champ and won the NA title, he also held the International title for Jarrett. Probably the hottest time of his career.

Savage would've been a perfect fit for Mid South. He got pushed to the moon when he was in Memphis (held all three singles titles) but I can see Watts hanging the NA title on him for a long run.

Actually, when Taylor won the International title in Dec 84 he had briefly left Mid-South in the middle of his feud with Adrian Street.  He returned to Mid-South shortly thereafter and didn't defend his International title in Memphis again until June or July 85, when he was in between Mid-South and JCP. Memphis results show that he jobbed  at the 1st two shows of the year in 84 (in a 6 man tag and to Konga) then didn't return until Dec 28, which was during his brief Mid-South hiatus, then he didn't return until doing 3 or 4 weeks in June/July, which was in between Mid-South and JCP. So he really wasn't working for both at the same time, unless he did a show here or there outside of Memphis.   

 

But he did hold the Mid-South TV title, the North American title, and the AWA International title at the same time in Spring 85 (though I don't think he was actually defnding the Int. title), which was also the time that Mid-South was on TBS. This was definitely his hottest period. He had great matches with Flair at that time and got clean wins over Dibiase and Kamala (!!! - who was never pinned clean on TV in Mid-South other than this time, that I can recall) on TBS.  They pushed him as a Superman for a few weeks, then aborted it.

It looked like they had sewed the seeds for a feud with II & TA against Poffo & Savage as Magnum and Lanny tagged, but Magnum's "coach", II, made it clear he would never trust a Poffo and even showed Magnum, and the Mid-South TV Network, a video on Randy Savage hyping him as one of the nastiest, wildest, meanest men in all of wrestling. Lanny got pissed off about that.  Magnum also teamed with Savage at the Atlanta tag tourney at that same time.

I think if the Midnight Express thing didn't happen, we might have gotten Poffomania vs II & TA, which would have run into the split bewtween II an TA.  then TA would have had another great rival (Savage) to defend the NA title against.
