"Round and Round, what comes around goes around"

When we left off last month, Bob Armstrong was fresh off his run as a bad guy, and now, it was "The Tennessee Studís" turn. He turned on Armstrong in a tag team match. For myself, this was a-ok. Why shouldnít Fuller turn on Armstrong in the same fashion that Armstrong did him? This is when my conversion from fan of the good guys, to fan of the bad guys began. I was loyal to my favorites no matter what. Things between these two heated up over one thing: the Continental Heavyweight Championship.

Ron initially won this title from Michael Hayes, and it was to take precedence over the Southeastern Championship in order of importance in the territory. One problem, Ron didnít want to defend the championship. He didnít think the fans of the area were good enough to see him defend the championship, and he didnít consider Bob Armstrong worthy of a title shot. Finally by order of National Wrestling Alliance President, Bob Geigel, Bob Armstrong was given his opportunity. He took advantage of this chance, and took the gold off "The Tennessee Stud."

Around this time Ron left the area, and Armstrong seemed to be free from the Fuller influence, or was he? Shortly afterwards, a friend of Ronís came into the area and began feuding with "Bullet" Bob. Mr. Wrestling II was in, although it has never been proven that Ron sent him after Armstrong, it is highly speculated. Another man arrived on the scene too, Lord Humongous, and it was proven that Ron sent him in to wreak havoc on the area.

So, for about six months, there was no Ron Fuller for Bob Armstrong to contend with. Armstrong got several title shots against NWA World Heavyweight Champion Ric Flair during this time. Life seemed good for "Bullet Bob." In November of 1984, that all changed. Jimmy Golden "stole" the Southeastern Championship from Austin Idol, and he had something special for in store for Southeastern Championship Wrestling. He had a "friend" in California. On TV they showed a video of Jimmy visiting his friend. Jimmy had his ace in the hole. He was able to secure the only managerís license for all of Southeastern, and he gave it to his friend, "The Tennessee Stud" Ron Fuller. This made for great television. Ron Fuller was back, and he was going to make Bob Armstrong pay dearly.

Soon, Fuller established himself a fine stable of wrestlers. He had Jimmy Golden, Lord Humongous, Arn Anderson and Mr. Continental (if someone can ID this guy please help us). Mr. Continental didnít last long though. So, while contending with the likes of "The Stud Stable," Armstrong was busy defending the Continental Heavyweight Championship across the country (Kayfabe though it may be). He also had a full slate of NWA World Championship matches with defending champion Ric Flair. Bob Armstrong had a full plate, and he did one heck of a job, I will admit. Ron Fuller even resorted to bringing in former Armstrong ally "The Flame" to handle "Bullet" Bob. "The Flame" succeeded in removing the Continental Heavyweight Championship from Armstrong.  More...
