Opening montage.

Match 1: “Dangerous” Dan Spivey versus Mike Allen


Rating: *

Summary: Showcase match for Spivey with decent workrate until the storyline finish.

After the match, Blair continues to annihilate Spivey with the chair until Spivey escapes to the locker room.

Commercial for DidiSeven. Get two for only $19.95!

Match 2: “Chief” Jay Strongbow, Jr. versus Houdini


Rating: DUD

Summary: Not even the canned heat appreciated this guy. Get out the hook!

Match 3: Colonel DeBeers versus David Sammartino


Rating: DUD

Summary: More storyline than match as David fights for all that’s good while DeBeers has his devilish ways. For the second time in three weeks, however, David did not job when it was probably appropriate.

Promo for UWF merchandise. Get yours TODAY! Albano plugs his “corner” allegedly after he and Stoli went a few rounds.

Williams cuts a promo on Orndorff.

Match 4: The Black Knight versus Davey Meltzer


Rating: *

Summary: Showcase match for Knight who unleashed quite an arsenal against a tough critic.

Promo for Sports Nightly airs. Get the James Bond collection from Time-Life Video. Watch the Buffalo Sabres battle the New Jersey Devils on Thursday. Hmmm…methinks this was taped after the broadcast date because they didn’t face the Sabres until 10/25. They won 5-1.

Strongbow welcomes all challengers. Where’s the hook?

Match 5: B. Brian Blair versus Riki Ataki


Rating: DUD

Summary: Showcase match for Blair.

CAPTAIN LOU’S CORNER: Albano interviews “Cowboy” Bob Orton. After insulting Albano, Orton cuts a promo on Nikita Koloff and Orndorff.

Promo #2 for UWF merchandise.

Spivey is the real deal in the UWF at least according to him.

Haynes cuts a promo and is ready to kick ass albeit not in that lingo.

Promo #3 for UWF merchandise. Get some new advertisers, Herb!

Match 6: Billy Jack Haynes versus Larry Ludden


Rating: DUD

Summary: Perhaps that elbow smash gave Ludden Excedrin headache #2453, and he couldn’t kick out in time. Either that, or Ludden thought the leg drop came from a wrestler whose origins are down the road in Venice Beach, brother.

First, Joe Namath informs us that nobody beats the Wiz. There’s a new store in Rego Park! Just don’t cross Queens Boulevard in order to get there if you truly value your life. Second, Mobil 1 keeps you from buying $15,000 cars too often. Third, grab the NYNEX yellow pages to find your next pet sitter. Fourth, become a nurse! Herb seemed like the kind of guy who should have done PSAs.

Prior to the next match, we revisit the 10/1 episode when Williams DECIMATED Meltzer. Also, we see the aftermath of Orndorff’s squash when he and Williams went face-to-face.

Match 7: “Dr. Death” Steve Williams versus “Mr. Wonderful” Paul Orndorff


Rating: *

Summary: Grudge match with some blatant rule breaking. Since Hernandez let it go, the match became a back-alley brawl.

After the match, Williams rams Orndorff back-first into the ring post and almost decapitates him with a chair shot. Fortunately for Orndorff, he ducked, or his goose would have been cooked. The brawl continues while Orndorff even nails referee Larry Sampson.

Commercial airs for CompuServe. Unfortunately, Mark Cuban wasn’t in the ad.

Conclusion: For the final week of taping, the wrestlers, minus Spivey, lacked effort in their performance. Hopefully, next week, with a fresh taping and crowd, some more energy will be shown.

Next week, the Koloffs invade the UWF! How did George H. W. Bush allow this to happen? Surely, Ken Patera can stand up for America against those maniacal Lithuanians. Also, the main event pits Orndorff against Orton.

TV Rating: NONE
