Can Big Daddy Bundy survive a handicap match? Wait a minute! The American title's on the line! You can't miss this show.

Wow! Melissa! Thanks for the support. Let's have some fun down in the Lone Star State.

Match 1: "Wild" Bill Irwin (w/ "Captain" Frank Dusek) versus Richard Blood


Rating: *1/2

Summary: Showcase match for Irwin with some decent jobber offense from Blood.

Goodson then interviews Kevin Von Erich who gives an honest and endearing promo. When Goodson asks him about hobbies, Kevin mentions cliff diving. Goodson then interviews Kerry who mentions skydiving as a hobby. Yeah, his head was usually in the clouds.

Match 2: Carlos Zapata versus Jose Lothario


Rating: DUD

Summary: S-L-O-W showcase match for Lothario.

Match 3 for the NWA American title: Bugsy McGraw (champion) versus NWA Texas champion Al Madril


Rating: *1/2

Summary: Mostly stalling and brawling until the fiery yet crappy finish. I smell an angle.

After the match, Madril challenges McGraw to a no-DQ match.


Pro wrestling shows during this period stuck to kayfabe by having pre-taped matches ready in case a featured match ran short. A familiar instance occurred during the original Clash of Champions as standby matches were announced but not televised due to the time-limit draw in the main event.

Match 4: Kerry Von Erich versus Larry Higgins


Rating: DUD

Summary: Showcase match for Kerry who never removed his jacket.

Match 5 (handicap): Big Daddy Bundy versus El Negro Assassin & Tony Torres


Rating: DUD

Summary: Showcase match for Bundy. He might want to add a side of Texas toast to his hearty meal of Torres.

Sorry, Ted, wrong Bundy.

Conclusion: Every so often, a title match gets dangled as an incentive to peak viewership. While the title match sucked, it served a purpose for a future no-DQ match. The next show promises a double dose of the Great Kabuki, Ivan Putski, and another match involving Madril.

Thanks for hanging out, Melissa. Come back as often as you like.

TV Rating: NONE
