Top of the World Ma!
This was a special night at the Greensboro Coliseum because the main event was the Nature Boy; Ric Flair verses Jimmy Garvin in a steel cage. Flair had to put up the World Title verses Garvin's wife Precious for one night of monkey love. The stakes were high and this was to be the big blow off for that feud.
Of course the Coliseum was packed and we all were in our custom Front Row seats awaiting the action. The ring crew came out for the main event and began to put up the cage. Legendary Mid- Atlantic jobber Klondike Bill for some odd reason sat down on the floor right in front of me. This was too good a chance to pass up so I started talking to Klondike Bill.
That was one of the smartest things I ever did.
The guy was a riot with a great sense of humor. I leaned over and asked Bill if the heels were going to run out and kick his ass tonight and get the keys to the cage?
Bill said and I quote, "Why? Did you hear something?"
I just about fell off my chair laughing at that one.
"You know, I never understood why they just don't come out and ask me for the key after all I would rather just give it to them."
That night got better and better as it went on with us peppering Bill with questions. He said we should have seen the Orange Bowl when they dropped the cage the night of the first War Games.
"That was something!" He was very proud of the accomplishment from a technical standpoint.
Well, out to the ring came JJ Dillon with his arm in a sling, David Crockett and Doctor Tom Miller sat at ringside. Then Garvin, Precious and Flair came to the ring.
The crowd was fire hot and the match was really terrific. Any match with Flair in it usually was and he was really getting Garvin over. The match was about 15 minutes in when Flair put Garvin in the Figure Four Leg lock. They were both in the corner nearest to us and then all hell broke loose. Precious was screaming for help when this crazy fan just exploded out of the crowd and started climbing up the cage!
And who said that valor is dead?
And this guy was really getting up the cage fast. JJ Dillon tried to grab the guy's foot but with his arm in a sling he really couldn't do much with the guy. David Crockett then attempted to grab the guy but the nut was really fired up and kicked Crockett. It was a really beautiful shot right in Crockett's big mouth something that all fans that had listened to his pussy whining for years would have been proud of. This crazed fan made all the way to the top of the cage and suddenly he froze. I guess he realized he had nowhere to go but down and that was a long way down.
Flair and Garvin both saw the guy and both were freaking out. Flair looked up and said,
I figured that it was time to talk to Klondike Bill.
"See that guy on top of the cage?"
"He is not part of the show."
"I guess I better get him down then."
Bill walked over grabbed the nut by his leg and ripped him off the cage.
A couple of cops showed up and dragged this guy away.
Bill walked back and said, "You know, I should have let him get in there. Then we would have had something really worth seeing."
While Klondike was ripping this nut down, Garvin submitted to Flair while in the Figure Four. Hey, what could they do? That nut was on top of the world and looked like he was about to fall on top of them. David Crockett turned to us and said, "Nobody f*cks up my show!"
Like he did anything.
Then they did the Atlanta Lively Angle with Ronnie Garvin dressed in Drag the following week on TV.
