Opening montage.

Prior to the opening match, Mr. Red grabs the microphone and calls the NYC faithful “hillbillies” and runs down Albano. HA! Let’s hope the wiseguys in Queens don’t find out about it.

Match 1: Ivan Koloff (w/ Mr. Red) versus Corporal Chris Michaels


Rating: DUD

Summary: Showcase match for Ivan.

After the match, Mr. Red distracts the anonymous referee, and Ivan nails Michaels in the head with his chain. Nefarious! While Michaels is BUSTED OPEN, the beating continues. The referee shoves down Mr. Red, but Ivan physically dismisses him. As Ivan further whips Michaels, Bob Backlund arrives to save Michael’s bacon.

Muraco shills the PPV while cutting a promo on Gordy, and Gordy rebuts.

Match 2: Wet’n’Wild versus the Power Twins (w/ John Tolos)


Rating: **½

Summary: While they used the tag formula to a certain degree, the match lacked heat but had some solid wrestling. Perhaps a rematch can garner better results with the fans?

After the match, the two teams brawl in the aisle, and Tolos smacks Beach with his shoe. Wild Thing comes to his partner’s aid, and the heel scatter.

Conclusion: Are you ready for the PPV? The UWF and Herb Abrams hope so! Rather than a double-DQ in the Wet’n’Wild/Power Twins match, couldn’t we get a Tolos-influenced heel victory to garner sympathy heat for the babyfaces? The Backlund arrival was a nice surprise and having Volkoff on the show was a good change of pace. I bet you’re truly excited for the PPV, right?

TV Rating: NONE

Stay tuned for UWF Beach Brawl!
