WCCW 03-23-85

Taped from Dallas, TX

Airdate: March 23, 1985 (taped 03/22)

Attendance: unknown

Hosted by Bill Mercer

Can Adias upset Adams? Will Hart get involved? And who is Sunshine’s mystery man? Given how daunting Cornette’s men are, she may need to summon a deity of some kind. Also, who will join me for this frightening reflection?

For a girl who’s in love with a guy named Demon, you bring a new level of fright to this reflection. I suggest you scram for your own sake.

Opening montage.

Match 1: One Man Gang (w/ Gary Hart) versus Larry Dwyer


Rating: DUD

Summary: Showcase match for Gang.

After the match, Gang annihilates Dwyer with his chain. Referee Rick Hazzard tries to stop him but gets shoved down. While Gang tosses Dwyer down to the floor, Hazzard reverses the decision. Dwyer wins!

On the other hand, I believe Dwyer took up accounting or insurance sales as a career after his monumental but extremely difficult victory.

LAND OF THE GIANTS: Video airs featuring Kamala, Andre the Giant, and Gang. I bet Fritz wishes he had Andre for one more night.

Match 2: Rip Oliver (w/ Jim Cornette) versus Hercules Hernandez (w/ Sunshine)


Rating: NONE

Summary: Character establishment for Hercules as Sunshine’s “surprise” and Cornette’s worst nightmare.

Match 3: Kelly Kiniski versus Johnny Mantell


Rating: **

Summary: Solid technical match where both wrestlers used psychology to the detriment of the excitement of the match. At least the babyface won to assuage the Dallas faithful.

Match 4 (non-title): NWA American champion “Gentleman” Chris Adams versus Brian Adias


Rating: **

Summary: Despite Mercer’s encouragement, I cannot, in good conscience, award this match *****; however, the match was strong in its ability to carry the Dallas faithful and stuck to its psychology.

Afterward, Gang centers his rage against Adams knocking him over the top rope to the floor. In the meantime, Adias lays into Hart prompting Gang to return to the ring to save his manager. Nevertheless, Adams interjects by nailing Gang with a superkick. He also knocks Adias OUT COLD with one to end the show.

Conclusion: Has anyone seen a Von Erich? With WrestleMania happening next week, they couldn’t possibly have defected to the WWF?

Next week, Kevin and Kerry square off against Adams and Gino Hernandez.

OK, I almost dropped a load in my pants thinking they changed direction while abandoning their own territory.

TV Rating: NONE
