UWF Fury Hour 09-16-91

Taped from Ft. Lauderdale, FL

Airdate: September 16, 1991 (taped 04/20/90)

Attendance: unknown

Hosted by Bill Cardille and Bruno Sammartino

Wait a minute! Who’s this ham’n’egger and where is Craig DeGeorge? Uh, what IS this show? Let’s find out the latest in Herb Abrams and the SportsChannel saga.

Two things become readily apparent with this episode:

  1. The UWF contract was not renewed by SportsChannel.
  2. Abrams ran out of money as well as content and had Howard Brody supply a LMLW episode at a cost.

More on this later.

Opening montage.

As Herb Abrams advertises the Williams/Bigelow match from Beach Brawl, the tape craps out. Methinks SportsChannel doesn’t want a clip show.

Upon its resumption, we get Wild Women of Wrestling featuring performers from the Ladies Major League Wrestling promotion.

Match 1: Sheila Fox versus Cadillac Pink


Rating: DUD

Summary: Showcase match for Pink.

After the match, Fox mauls Pink, but the anonymous referee pulls her off. A spunky Moretti enters the ring to assist Pink and raise her arm in victory.

Conclusion: And just like that, the contract had been completed between Abrams and SportsChannel. Promises of “Dangerous” Danny Spivey and the Ultimate Warrior went without another mention, so where does the UWF go from here?

On another note, the wrestling on the show was entertaining, and you can see the potential from Made and Moretti that earned them WWF contracts.

Next week, the UWF goes PRIME time.

Sorry, Chester.

TV Rating: NONE
