On World Championship Wrestling 9-03-1988, Dusty Rhodes has words for a "fat lady" in the audience who badgers him week after week.

Dusty was self-conscience of getting booed during this era, and this shit was happening almost on a weekly basis dating back to early '86. I just watched an episode last night almost two years exactly prior to this...Aug 30, 1986. He calls out a "fat lady" in the front row who has been cheering Flair. No idea if it is the SAME fat lady :)

Nice Coca-Cola rugby on that dude in the crowd. I wish I still had mine.

There's actually a lot of boos there. Studio wrestling would never work in this day and age because rogue fans, as few as they were then, could really take over a show in such an intimate setting. I also guarantee that very few other than Dusty could've gotten away with that.

remember the four guys that would come in suits and cheer the Horsemen?  Like you said, when they were in the small building before filming in both Center Stage and MGM Studios Orlando, if a half dozen people came in with an agenda, they took over the place.  And by this time, people were tired of Dusty.

Those are EXACTLY the guys I were thinking of when I wrote that.  LOL

The guy’s name is escaping me at the moment but he did a segment on the 605 super podcast a few months ago talking about some of the shit they did.

Dusty Rhodes by the fall of 1988 needed to either take himself off of TV and off the road for a while, retire apart from the special card like Bill Watts did in Mid-South/UWF or turn heel. He was no longer appealing as the top babyface, but he couldn't deal with it as the fans drifted away and the remaining ones grew less and less fond of him.

Was John Hitchcock one of the guys from Greensboro with Bruce Mitchell? They'd wear suits and go big for the Horsemen and Cornette/MX. It was kind of cool to see at the time, but the fans wanting to be the show instead of watching the show got old much further down the line.

I went to JCP's Twin Cities debut in the fall of 1986. It didn't draw and was made up of hardcore wrestling fans, disenchanted AWA fans who didn't like the WWF, biker types there for the Road Warriors, and early insider fans. The babyfaces were mostly booed. Only the Road Warriors and Baron Von Raschke (an AWA favorite who was booked as a babyface for this card, but was still a heel on TV) got universal fan support. Dick Murdoch got cheered over Shaska Whatley because the bikers in particular rode Whatley hard. Even as a teenager it hit me that Whatley wasn't getting heat for being a heel. It was because of him being Black. Flair was cheered over Dusty for the most part, but they got the crowd cheering for Dusty by the end because there were so many near falls that the fans got into the idea of there being an NWA World Title change in front them. Jim Cornette put over the fans during his intro for the Midnights. The Rock & Roll Express and Magnum TA did not take getting booed as babyfaces well at all. It was a memorable evening, but I still prefer when fans react the "right" way within the context of the work and the traditional way wrestling is presented.
