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.
