This event took place during the Texas State Fair. The Cotton Bowl Stadium was built back in 1930 and still stands today.

Match 1: “Killer” Tim Brooks (w/ Gary Hart) versus “Cowboy” Steve Casey


Rating: *

Summary: Short match that showcased Brooks.

Match 2: The Fantastics versus Dave Peterson and “Hollywood” John Tatum (w/ Missy Hyatt)


Rating: ***

Summary: The Fantastics never disappoint as they pull off a great victory here.

After the match, Missy gets in Peterson’s face about losing the match. As she continues to berate him, Sunshine enters the ring, but Tatum grabs her by the hair and tosses her out of the ring. The scoundrel! Referee Rick Hazzard tries to restrain Sunshine and gets levelled.

Match 3: The Great Kabuki (w/ Sunshine) versus “Maniac” Mark Lewin


Rating: DUD

Summary: Nothing to see here. Move along.

After the match, Hart enters the ring and receives a kick from Kabuki. Lewin and Hart then give Kabuki a double clothesline. After a pair of stomps, Hart tosses Hazzard out of the ring. Casey comes to Kabuki’s aid shooing Hart and Lewin from the ring. Kabuki re-enters the ring and decks Casey with a kick. After beating up Casey, Kabuki grabs Sunshine by the hair and tosses her down to the mat. Poor Sunshine! Before leaving, Kabuki kicked Ralph Pulley off the apron. WE HAVE A HEEL TURN!

Match 4: Kelly Kiniski versus Tommy Montana


Rating: *1/2

Summary: Showcase match for Kiniski.

Match 5 for the NWA Texas title: Brian Adias (champion) versus Jack Victory (w/ Gary Hart)


Rating: **

Summary: Not a great match, but the fans loved Adias.

Supposedly, there was a taped fist match for the NWA American title between champion “Iceman” King Parsons and the One Man Gang. Parsons won in the third round by countout. I think I’m glad this match wasn’t included.

Match 6 (hair versus hair/lumberjack): Kerry and Kevin Von Erich versus the Dynamic Duo


Rating: ****

Summary: Exciting main event that rocked the stadium.

After the match, Hernandez tries to escape, but the lumberjacks restrain him. Meanwhile Adias, Casey, and Parsons take turns cutting Adams’ hair. Kerry has the clippers and shaves Adams’ head. As Kevin continues the shave job, the crowd chants “Baldie!” Now it’s Hernandez’s turn. However, he escapes only to be tackled by Chris who was only 16. Kevin uses the clippers and sheds Hernandez of his stylish mane. Kerry gets the second shift then Chris and Kevin finish the job.

Conclusion: Between the Fantastics, Missy Hyatt, and the hair versus hair match, this is an exciting show. I must clamor for the WWE Network to add content like this to boost their subscriber count.

See you for NWA Battle of the Belts!
