Taped from Dallas, TX

Airdate: March 17, 1984 (taped 03/02)

Attendance: unknown

Hosted by Bill Mercer

Can Adams and Parsons achieve victory over Garvin and Link? Will Hayes slaughter Mike, or will the young rookie prevail? Who will join me for this St. Patrick’s Day edition?

Patrick Swayze! Great to have you here. Despite the notion that you’re not a saint, ridding snakes from WCCW makes sense. Unfortunately, Roberts is competing for Georgia Championship Wrestling at the moment. Stick around for a great Irish tune.

Opening montage.

Match 1: “Hacksaw” Butch Reed versus Mike Bond


Rating: DUD

Summary: Showcase match for Reed.

After the match, Parsons enters the ring and challenges Reed. I foresee this matchup coming to an arena near you.

Match 2: Mike Von Erich versus Michael Hayes


Rating: *½

Summary: A copious amount of smoke and mirrors did its job to hide Mike’s inexperience and give him a crowd-pleasing win over his archenemy.

Following a commercial break, a video featuring the Missing Link airs. I doubt the music on the WWE Network version is accurate because Quiet Riot would be more appropriate.

Next, the aftermath from the Adams-Garvin mix-up last week airs when Garvin, sitting at the broadcast table, demands his “stuff” back. He also claims that Adams is a “thief.” While throwing a major temper tantrum, he won’t watch the footage. Upon Garvin’s exit, the footage airs.

Match 3: “Gentleman” Chris Adams & “Iceman” King Parsons versus “Gorgeous” Jimmy Garvin & the Missing Link (w/ Precious & Gen. Skandor Akbar)


Rating: **½

Summary: The dynamic between Parsons-Link and Adams-Garvin told a decent story while the tag formula worked until the crappy finish.

Afterward, Garvin retrieves his goodies until Adams returns to nail him. Adams then backdrops him causing Garvin to drop his stuff. When Adams dropkicks him, Garvin hightails it leaving his valuables behind.

Conclusion: The game of I took your stuff between Garvin and Adams progressed as Garvin failed to retrieve his ring attire. I’m surprised as you are that Hayes’ cockiness cost him dearly against Mike. From what we saw, Parsons moved on to grapple with Reed in an intriguing matchup. What did you think, Patrick?

Absolutely! Thanks for your time, and be safe out there!

TV Rating: NONE
