CAPTAIN LOU’S CORNER: In the ring, Albano interviews Herb Abrams and Mr. Red. After Mr. Red offers Albano “no hard feelings” about the incident at Beach Brawl, he extends his hand “in friendship.” They shake hands, and Mr. Red holds up a piece of paper stating that he “own(s) the Captain’s Corner.”

In disbelief, Albano explains his contract status with the UWF. Abrams confirms it and rips up the Red’s paper. As Abrams tosses it back in Mr. Red’s face, Albano CLOCKS Mr. Red for a second time. The Cuban Assassin and Super Ninja storm the ring to shoo Albano and Abrams back to the dressing room and tend to Mr. Red while the Ft. Lauderdale faithful chants “Lou.” Good angle!

Conclusion: For the first time in weeks, episode-pacing problems rear their ugly head as time runs out before the completion of the main event. Hopefully, we see the entire match on next week’s episode.

Alas, the Blackhearts match along with Captain’s Corner segment make this a worthwhile episode despite the poor pacing. Sink your teeth into this one.

Next week, the climax to the Orton-Orndorff match!

TV Rating: NONE

Stay tuned for UWF 08-19-91!
