Can Kerry avenge his father's partial blindness against Kabuki? Read on!

Opening montage.

Match 1: Raúl Castro versus Captain Frank Dusek (w/ "Wild" Bill Irwin)


Rating: *

Summary: Showcase match for Dusek. Yes, Felicia, other wrestlers besides Jake "The Snake" Roberts were using this move as a finisher.

After the match, Goodson interviews Lothario with Big Daddy Bundy. Lothario believes Bundy could take down Andre the Giant. Following that, Bundy appreciates all the help he's received during the early portions of his career and wishes everyone "Feliz Navidad." Um, yeah, someone forgot to tell him about taping schedules.

Match 2: “Wild” Bill Irwin (w/ "Captain" Frank Dusek) versus Jesse Relampago León


Rating: ½*

Summary: Showcase match for Irwin.

Goodson then interviews Hart with Kabuki. That mask can seriously scare young children.

Match 3: Kerry Von Erich versus the Great Kabuki (w/ Gary Hart)


Rating: **

Summary: The Von Erich-Kabuki feud isn't settled yet.

Match 4: Kevin Von Erich versus Carlos Zapata


Rating: ½*

Summary: Showcase match for Kevin. Zapata must have eaten some bad chili con carne to submit so quickly.

Match 5 (non-title): American tag team champions Armand Hussein & “Killer” Tim Brooks versus Jose Lothario & Tom ”Boogaloo” Shaft


Rating: DUD

Summary: Boring, ineffective main event. Anybody got any No-Doz?

Conclusion: Without question, the highlight of the show was the Kabuki-Kerry match. Skip the rest unless you're wired.

TV Rating: NONE
