Conclusion: Pedestrian episode just in case booking changes were made at the PPV. Since this show was taped a month ago, I’m surprised Don Muraco wasn’t on it. Nevertheless, Wet’n’Wild and the Power Twins each had a showcase match, and two preliminary matches along with reruns filled out the episode. My recommendation:
Let’s hope the UWF can offer something to go with the Beach Brawl reruns in the coming weeks.
TV Rating: NONE
Stay tuned for UWF 06-17-85!
