Opening montage.

To disguise the fans dressed as empty seats, Mercer wears a plaid sports jacket.

Match 1: “Mr. Electricity” Herb Abrams Steve Regal versus Mike Reed


Rating: ½*

Summary: Showcase match for the “electric man” as Mercer called him.

Before the update begins, Mercer informs us that Adams will NOT discuss the “Handsome Half-Breed” Gino Hernandez.

“GENTLEMAN” CHRIS ADAMS UPDATE: From “England,” Mercer interviews Adams in his home. Adams explains that his sight has improved in his right eye and calls it a “miracle.” Although there’s “no change” in his left eye, he’s hoping for the best. He’s overwhelmed by the volume of support mail but hesitant to return to America. Lastly, he advises to not take what you have for granted because it might not be there in the future. Due to this, Adams is a “changed man” and apologizes for his previous behavior.

Prior to the next match, Link holds a little girl and swipes her pink stuffed bunny. How dastardly!

Match 2: The Missing Link (w/ Sunshine) versus Buddy Roberts


Rating: DUD

Summary: Roberts did everything he could but hightailed it to save embarrassment.

Following the match, Link retrieves his toy rabbit but doesn’t return it to the little girl.


The Freebirds: “Not happy about no rule changes.”

Kerry and Lance: “change for the better.”

Rude and Pringle: “feeling held back thanks to the rule changes.”

Match 3 (non-title): WCWA World champion “Ravishing” Rick Rude (w/ Percy Pringle) versus the “Modern Day Warrior” Kerry Von Erich


Rating: ***

Summary: Once again, had this been a title match, Rude would have lost the belt. What it truly means is that Kerry became the #1 contender.

Afterward, Pringle pitches a fit over the “inadvertent” violation that cost Rude the match.

Conclusion: Rude had a much better non-title match this week against Kerry. On the contrary, poor Roberts took the first bus out of town he could do to bail from his match against Link. Regal was a breath of fresh air who could be a good foil for Lance Von Erich or “Iceman” King Parsons. Nonetheless, another solid episode in the books for the newly minted WCWA.

Next week, Lance battles Michael Hayes.

TV Rating: NONE
