Opening montage.

Match 1: “Iceman” King Parsons versus Buddy “Jack” Roberts


Rating: **½

Summary: The restart of the match didn’t help Roberts whatsoever. Methinks all that nightlife activity has somewhat affected his intelligence. Also, that finish needed a different camera angle at best.

Match 2: The “Heartthrob of New Jersey” Jack Victory versus Mark Youngblood


Rating: *½

Summary: Considering Victory’s recently been fighting for the Texas title and Youngblood’s poor win/loss record, this was a true upset making the Dallas faithful jump for joy.

Match 3: Michael Hayes versus Brian Adias


Rating: **

Summary: Say what you want about Hayes’ wrestling style, but the match told a good story.

After the match, Hayes attacks Adias and applies a figure-four leg lock. Kerry storms the ring to save Adias, but Hayes halts his efforts with a knee crusher. Hayes tries to lock him in a figure-four, but Kerry kicks him away. Once Kerry lands a discus punch, Hayes soars over the top rope to the floor. Lubich reverses the decision, so Adias wins by disqualification.

Mercer knocks on Tatum’s door, and Tatum invites him inside. As Mercer walks into the living room, Missy’s taking a bubble bath and drinking red wine. Tatum cues up the videotape, and Tatum defeats Link by pinfall. While Missy promises that Tatum will win EVERY match going forward, Mercer can’t believe it.

Missy wants another chance against Sunshine to even the score with her and vows to “blacken both of her eyes.” Solid interview, and Tatum’s childlike behavior while constantly rewinding the tape to revel in his victory is both silly and hysterical.

Match 4: The “Modern Day Warrior” Kerry Von Erich & the Missing Link (w/ Sunshine) versus One Man Gang & “Hollywood” John Tatum (w/ Missy Hyatt)


Rating: **

Summary: Disjointed match that enabled the heels to steal the victory from a pair of mismatched babyfaces.

After the match, Tatum mauls a boom operator and celebrates with Missy and Gang. Lubich enters the ring and advises Hazzard on the chicanery. Consequently, Hazzard reverses the decision to enthrall the Dallas faithful.

Conclusion: Hmmm…a pair of Dusty finishes to match a pair of figure-four leg locks. Must be a tribute to being in the NWA. Regardless, Tatum carried the main event while Hayes and Roberts dominated their singles matches. Although this week’s episode doesn’t compare well to last week’s, I expect the BIG NEWS next week to overshadow everything.

Next week, the Fantastics return to WCCW and square off against Tatum and the Grappler.

TV Rating: NONE
