Notable Feud(s): R. Bruce Tharpe & The Golden King
He was arguably part of one of the best tag teams of all-time when he and the Golden King were tag teaming as a cohesive
unit. Next to the Phantom Lords, the team of the Golden King and The Colonel
are the best tag team ever to grace the IWF ring. But with the highest of highs
comes the lowest of lows.
The Colonel slowly but surely started to drift away from the tag team as the imminent breakup between the two men, who
were seemingly like blood brothers, started in October of 2003. In a tag team
match pitting R. Bruce Tharpe with Psycho Simpson and Dusty Wolfe tagging with The Colonel, Tharpe was allegedly hurt by none
other than The Colonel himself, who would later admit he intentionally tried to hurt Tharpe.
And thus the feud between Tharpe and Colonel began to prosper. The Colonel
was now intent on hurting R. Bruce Tharpe in any way, shape or form he could think of.
The climax of the feud took place when Colonel deliberately broke the right arm of R. Bruce Tharpe during a live interview.
The Colonel, after on several occasions failing to regain the
tag team glory that Golden King and he had in the past, finally turned his back on his long time tag team partner and friend
on July 15th, 2004 in a 6 man tag team match, blaming Golden King for their demise and how his supposed selfishness
made the team disintegrate. The Colonel then decided to side with the likes of
Jacob Ladder, Frankie Pain and Scrappy McGowan. The Colonel is now not only hell
bent to ruin the career of the Golden King but also that of R. Bruce Tharpe himself and we all know he will stop at nothing
to do so.
