Deadline Doug Lunney debuts tonight!
Winnipeg Sun writer-turned-wrestler goes Top Rope

With manager Miss Tammy and the Deadline Dolls in his corner, Deadline Doug Lunney can't lose. - James O'Connor, Winnipeg Sun
By DOUG LUNNEY -- Winnipeg Sun

  The look on Gordon Norrie's face was priceless.

  "I've got this idea," I told the Winnipeg Sun publisher as I sat in his office. "I've been offered a chance to train with the people from Top Rope Championship Wrestling, who want to put me in a match later this month.

 
THE 'REPUGNANT' VANCE NEVADA: About to sample a heapin' helpin' of whup-ass.
"Then I'll write a column about what it was like to be a pro wrestler. What do you think?"

  Once he realized I wasn't kidding, Norrie said he loved the idea. A night later I was introduced to the fans at the Palladium Nite Club by promoter Bobby Jay, only to be attacked by the repugnant Vance Nevada and his cronies Rob Stardom and Chris Parys.

  Well, Vance, a couple of the boys at TRCW have put me through torturous training the past few weeks, but tonight all the bodyslams, bruises and rope burns will be worth it.

  Tonight at the Palladium, when Deadline Doug Lunney steps through the ropes -- led by the lovely Miss Tammy and the Deadline Dolls -- Vance Nevada will discover he messed with the wrong dude.

  The match is part of TRCW's Summer Heat 2001, which also includes: The 7-foot-3 Cyborg vs. TRCW champion Adam Knight; a tag title bout between the MVPs and No Heat; Team Impact vs. Darren Dalton, Robby Royce and The Axe; T.J. Bratt vs. Shane Madison; Jay vs. Mike Myers; the mighty midgets; a 10-man tag match; and a barbed-wire death match between Stardom and The Sheik.

  The action starts at 9 p.m. Rush seats are $5 at the door. Get there early, Deadliners. I plan to make short work of Nevada as I've got to work tomorrow morning.

  Blasted day jobs.
