Match 1: Terry “Bam Bam” Gordy versus Captain Badd


Rating: DUD

Summary: Showcase match for Gordy. Hopefully, he and Williiams can team together and face Orndorff and Blair.

Afterward, Gordy cuts a promo in the “studio.”

Rumble in the Big Apple IV will transpire on 5/10 at the Hotel Pennsylvania. Obviously, the folks who had owned the hotel temporarily changed the name, and new owners reverted the name back to its origin.

Match 5: Wet’n’Wild versus “Cowboy” Bob Orton & Cactus Jack (w/ John Tolos)


Rating: **½

Summary: Another inconclusive finish yet both teams looked remarkably better than last week.

After the match, the heels ram Wet’n’Wild together, and Orton retrieves Beach’s surfboard. The referee rapidly takes it from Orton. Next, a Cactus clothesline sends both Cactus and Beach down to the floor. Tolos mangles Beach on the floor while his charges double-team Wild Thing. To make matters worse, Orton CREAMS Wild Thing with Beach’s surfboard to end the show. Evil!

Watch Out for Justice only in theaters starting 4/12.

Conclusion: Much better pacing with this episode as Abrams puts on an entertaining show despite the constant main event non-finishes. Did I hear something about next week?

TV Rating: NONE
