Match 2: Ivan Koloff versus David Sammartino


Rating: *

Summary: Decent psychology by both wrestlers, but with Ivan replacing Zbyszko, this match had no heat and a crappy finish.

After the match, Ivan provides David with a swinging neckbreaker and disputes the referee’s decision.

Match 4: B. Brian Blair (w/ Capt. Lou Albano & Honey) versus “Cowboy” Bob Orton (w/ John Tolos)


Rating: ***

Summary: Good story with all parties getting involved in the match. The feud cannot not over based on this outcome because I’m certain that Blair wants to beat Orton to teach him a lesson. Today’s not that day.

Williams cuts a promo on Orndorff.

Orndorff responds.

Match 5: “Dr. Death” Steve Williams versus “Mr. Wonderful” Paul Orndorff


Rating: DUD

Summary: Too short to rate, and this blood feud is NOT over.

Following the match, Orndorff nails Williams again with the umbrella before ramming him face-first into the timekeeper’s table. Williams is BUSTED OPEN. When Williams re-enters the ring, Orndorff mounts the top turnbuckle and delivers a flying fist to the bloodied Williams.

Orndorff attempts a bulldog, but Williams shoves him away. Afterward, Williams then supplies Orndorff with a knee lift, but Abrams interrupts the post-match proceedings by announcing that we will see the remainder of the chaos in two weeks.

Ad #2 airs for the Penta Hotel.

Before the show leaves the air, Abrams shills the next TV taping on 2/15 at the Penta Hotel.

Conclusion: On paper, this was a BLOCKBUSTER show. Since none of the hyped matches had a clean finish, the show cheated both the NYC faithful and the TV viewers. While I realize that Abrams was a student of the game, he should heed what happened to Jim Crockett Promotions when Dusty Rhodes kept screwing over the fans. Otherwise, it’s curtains.

Next week, “the best of the UWF” comes to SportsChannel.

TV Rating: NONE
