"Bulldog" Bob Brown started teaming with Marty Jannetty in 1984. By this time, Tommy Rogers had left The Central States area so The Uptown Boys were no more. Brown and Jannetty defeated the team of Mr. Pogo and Gypsy Joe who were managed by Sheik Abdullah The Great (The Master of Illusion) on December 9, 1984 for the Central States tag team titles. Marty Jannetty was a dual champion because he defeated Gypsy Joe for the Central States TV Title on October 13, 1984. "Gorgeous" Gary Royal defeated Jannetty for the Central States TV title on March 7, 1985.

The team of Bob Brown and Marty Jannetty defeated such teams as Gary Royal and Roger "Nature Boy" Kirby, Mr. Pogo and Sheik Abdullah (they turned on Gypsy Joe and Joe became a face), Mr. Pogo and "Diamond" Timothy Flowers, Gary Royal and Timothy Flowers, The Rock ĎN Roll Express, "Gentleman" Ken Timbs and Gary Royal, The Midnight Express, and The Super Destroyer (I have no idea who was under the hood of Super D. in 1985) and Edcar "Boo" Thomas.

On August 8, 1985, Ric Flair defended The NWA World Title in Kansas City against Harley Race with "Bulldog" Bob Brown as special Referee. Brown and Race had been a tag team off and on for years. Bob Brown turned on Harley Race in that match and cost Race a victory against Flair.

On August 15, 1985, Bob Brown and Marty Jannetty put the Central States Tag Team Titles on the line against Brad and Bart Batten, The Batten Twins. In that match, Bob Brown refused to tag in. Later that night, there was a Battle Royal. I donít remember who all was in the Battle Royal, but Mike George, Dave (DJ) Peterson, Mr. Pogo, Art Crews, Gary Royal, Denny Brown, Akio Sato, Coyote (Scott Hall) and Rufus R. Jones were such some of the other people on the card that night. The last two people in the ring were Marty Jannetty and Bob Brown. They shook hands and everyone thought that we had co-winners for the Battle Royal. Marty turned his back on Brown and raised his hand in the air, and Bob Brown dropkicked Jannetty over the top rope and Bob Brown won the Battle Royal. As I recall, the winner received some money so Brown didnít have to split the money. The tag team titles were held up. (The Batten Twins defeated The Midnight Express (Condrey and Eaton) on November 21, 1985 for the held-up titles).  More...
