Will do, Pink Floyd groupie, er, Cushie.

Match 1: The Spoiler versus "Captain" Frank Dusek


Rating: *

Summary: Somewhat of a showcase match for Spoiler yet Dusek played a decent wicked heel.

After the match, Dusek threw a tantrum.

Match 2 (non-title): World tag team champions Bugsy McGraw & King Kong Bundy (w/ Arman Hussein) versus Tom "Boogaloo" Shaft & Ken Mantell


Rating: DUD

Summary: Showcase match for the tag champs.

Um, you might want to rephrase that question, Cushie.

Lowrance interviews Gary Hart with Kabuki who promotes a newcomer to WCCW from Macau—the Dragon. He then cuts a promo on Fritz Von Erich.

Match 3: Al Madril versus Arman Hussein


Rating: *

Summary: Nothing much beyond a kick-and-punch affair.

After the match, Hussein attacks the celebrating Madril but retreats when he loses the advantage.

Match 4 (handicap): NWA Texas champion "Wild" Bill Irwin versus Richard Blood & Mike Bond


Rating: DUD

Summary: Showcase match for Irwin.

I bet not, Cushie! HA!

Match 5: Kevin Von Erich (w/ Fritz Von Erich) versus Kabuki (w/ Gary Hart)


Rating: **

Summary: Wild brawl that continued the feud between Hart and the Von Erichs.

After the match, Fritz re-enters the ring to thwart the double-team by Kabuki and Bundy.

Lowrance then interviews Kevin and Fritz who vow revenge on Kabuki.

Conclusion: The main event provided a lot of excitement making the rest of the show worth viewing. Cushie, do you have anything to add?

You got it. Thanks for being my groupie too.

TV Rating: NONE
