PWI 500 Rankings



This match took place at the former Madison Central High School from which Joe Rules graduated in 1990. Steve Corino was the special guest ring announcer. With Luxurious Lynne in his corner, Rules defeated his long-time rival and future tag team partner with his patented Rulebreaker while many family members and friends (including The Lovely Kerri) looked on from the audience.


When Joe Rules whips his opponent into the ropes and catches him as he rebounds to slam him down to the canvas with his version of the sidewalk slam, the match is usually over three seconds later. The Rulebreaker injures the recipient's back while also knocking the wind out of him, leaving him easy prey to the pinfall.


Joe Rules has tangled with Boogie Woogie Brown on numerous occasions, both in singles and tag matches, but has never even come close to defeating him. Rules got the last laugh, however; due to a prematch stipulation, when Rick Silver defeated Scott Furie, Brown was forced to leave the Reading, Pennsylvania area. (If Silver lost, Rules would have had to leave.)


Joe Rules and The Orphan have been feuding in the United Wrestling Coalition for months now. And while Rules has had his share of victories, Orphan rendered his beautiful ring robe unfit to wear by blowing his nose in it, and he defeated Joe Rules for the North American Title in Six Flags Great Adventure. Their battles intensify with each UWC event, and Joe Rules has vowed he will not rest till he gains total and complete revenge on The Orphan!
