Match 3: Don Muraco versus Dusty Wolfe
Summary: Showcase match for Muraco as Wolfe barely showed up.
After the match, “Dr. Death” Steve Williams storms the ring to ambush Muraco. Suddenly, “Mr. Wonderful” Paul Orndorff sprints to the ring with a 1x6 to chase off Williams.
Abrams interviews Williams in the ring. Since a cameraman missed his cue to film the segment, the first half was shot wide. Nonetheless, Williams cuts a promo on Orndorff.
Plug #3 airs for the UWF PowerLine.
Match 4: Wet’n’Wild versus “Cowboy” Bob Orton & Cactus Jack (w/ John Tolos)
Summary: Wet’n’Wild looked good; however, since Orton and Cactus don’t have much experience tagging together, they didn’t lead the match as well as they could have.
Nonetheless, the bloody brawl at the end suggests that this feud is NOT over.
After the production snafu, an ad for Sports Trivia aired.
Orndorff shills Super Arm Blaster.
Ad #2 for the Penta Hotel airs.
While Abrams plugs the Florida dates again, he mentions an upcoming PPV in June. Woohoo!
Conclusion: Another inconclusive main event highlights this episode along with a production snafu like no other. Are the wheels starting to come off already?
Next week, we get matches from the 3/10 tapings including Muraco versus “Wild Samoan” Afa and a rematch of tonight’s main event!
C’mon, Jeff, let’s be optimistic.
