Opening montage.

Match 1: Billy Jack Haynes versus Gary Keyes


Rating: DUD

Summary: Showcase match for Haynes.

Catch the NJ Devils as they visit the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday night! Unfortunately, they lost 2-1.

Match 2: Ken Patera versus Riki Ataki


Rating: DUD

Summary: Showcase match for Patera.

Tolos cuts a promo alongside Hunter. He may spell wrestling T-O-L-O-S, but I spell his promo R-O-L-A-I-D-S. Nevertheless, he promotes Hunter as well as Dan Spivey in his “stable” then runs down Blair.

Match 3: “Mr. Wonderful” Paul Orndorff versus Matt Starr


Rating: DUD

Summary: Showcase match for Orndorff. Methinks Starr’s resume was already in the mail before the piledriver.

Prior to the next match, Tolos lies to the Reseda faithful about Spivey’s whereabouts. While Blair made his entrance, the audio went SOUTH.

Match 4: B. Brian Blair (w/ Honey) versus the Bounty Hunter (w/ John Tolos)


Rating: ***

Summary: Blair had the ultimate counter for Tolos with Honey in his corner.

After the match, Tolos has a conniption about being outfoxed. He then kicks and spits upon Hunter who is still down on the mat.

Tolos runs down Hunter for losing to Blair.

Match 5: The Viking versus the Patriot


Rating: DUD

Summary: Showcase match for Viking. Since they’re in Reseda, the fans would rather root for Chris, er, I mean Jim Everett of the Rams.

After the match, the doctor, who resembles either Abrams or Howard Finkel, waves for the gurney to be brought to the ring. The Reseda faithful celebrates with a “9-1-1” chant.

CAPTAIN LOU’S CORNER: Albano interviews Ivan who refers to Nikita as “former nephew” and “soft.”

Shut up, Enzo.

Promo #3 for UWF merchandise. Caps, hats, but where are the Herbie cookies?

Orndorff cuts a promo.

Next, Patera cuts a promo. Meanwhile, I walk away to wash my socks.

Promo #4 for UWF merchandise with Orndorff again. C’mon, Herb! At least shill the UWF toilet paper!

Match 6: Ivan Koloff versus Nikita Koloff


Rating: **

Summary: There was psychology on both sides to make the match entertaining, but another bogus finish makes me question the booking.

After the match, the Koloffs brawl on the concrete floor, and Ivan shoves Hernandez down. He then tries to crown Nikita with a wooden chair, but Nikita takes it away from him. He then nails Ivan in the midsection with it and chases him backstage.

Conclusion: The battle of the Koloffs was a stalemate this time, but I bet another clash will be on the horizon. In other news, Blair used his own subterfuge to overcome Tolos and Hunter. If you enjoy the decimation of the former “Davey Meltzer,” then this show is for you. Let’s hope next week’s main event doesn’t stink on Melba toast.

Next week, Patera will battle Haynes in a war between Portland, OR natives and masters of the full nelson. The real question is who will leave his feet first?

TV Rating: NONE
