Opening montage.

Ralph Pulley sings “God Bless America” quite beautifully to open the show.

Match 1: The “Heartthrob of New Jersey” Jack Victory versus the Missing Link


Rating: *

Summary: The Dallas faithful cheered Link to victory in a quick, harmless match.

After the match, Percy Pringle approaches ringside with “Ravishing” Rick Rude. He applauds Link’s efforts and climbs into the ring. Although Link doesn’t go after Pringle, Rude jumps into the ring with a chair and WHACKS him. Pringle and Rude double-team Link until Sunshine steps into the ring. Removing something from her pocket, she douses Rude with mace. Pringle wrestles that away from her, but Link rescues her from being blinded. As Pringle and Rude exit, Link chivalrously opens the ropes for Sunshine. What a gentle…man?

Match 2: Terry “Bam Bam” Gordy & Buddy “Jack” Roberts versus David Peterson & Mark Youngblood


Rating: ***

Summary: While it was a showcase match for the Freebirds, both Gordy and Roberts had their working boots on.

Match 3 for the NWA American tag team titles: The Dynamic Duo (champions) versus the “Cosmic Cowboys”


Rating: ****

Summary: Wild tag team war where the champions survive with their belts, but do I smell dissension in the ranks?

Afterward, Hernandez tries to give Adams his tag team belt, but Adams tosses it down in anger. He slaps Hernandez who subsequently tries to make amends. Instead, Adams turns his back on him.

Conclusion: Can the Dynamic Duo survive this disaster? Perhaps the war with the Von Erichs is over, but will they battle one another? Regardless, that’s a great tag match. The Freebirds also shine in their match, and the deal with Link’s face turn appears to be finalized. Hopefully, a curse can be lifted so that he and Sunshine can bask in their Beauty and the Beast storyline.

Next week, the mixed tag match between Scott Casey, Sunshine, “Hollywood” John Tatum, and Missy Hyatt. Also, Rude defends the American title against Lance Von Erich.

TV Rating: NONE
