Opening montage.

Match 1: “Mr. Electricity” Steve Regal versus Brickhouse Brown


Rating: **

Summary: While Regal brought his heel mannerisms to the match, Brown brought some enthusiasm that kept the Dallas faithful enthralled. Since both wrestlers were relatively new to the territory, a draw made perfect sense.

Match 2 for the WCWA World Six-Man titles: The Freebirds (champions) versus the Von Erichs


Rating: ***

Summary: Close but not close enough for the Von Erichs to regain the titles. At least they didn’t use the no-DQ rule to screw over the Freebirds.

Match 3 (non-title): WCWA World champion “Ravishing” Rick Rude (w/ Percy Pringle) versus Steve Simpson

Rating: **

Summary: Simpson made a go of it, but the World champion got the better of him.

We return to Ft. Worth where Brody interrupts a match between Tatum and Allen and calls out Gordy. Despite Hazzard’s efforts to prevent the madness, Gordy jumps into the ring, and the brawl is ON. Only two words describe this—HOSS FIGHT.

The brawl segues to the floor, and Gordy blasts Brody with a chair. In quick response, Brody makes Gordy HIT THE POLE. As they made its way among the Ft. Worth faithful, a BUSTED OPEN Gordy rams Brody into the KTVT-11 production van. Gordy slams Brody face-first into the foundation, but all three WCWA officials shut the door to prevent further chaos.

Match 4 (Texas tornado): The Fantastics (w/ Sunshine) versus “Hollywood” John Tatum & the Grappler (w/ Missy Hyatt)


Rating: ***½

Summary: Wild, sensational, non-stop excitement from bell-to-bell plus extreme humiliation to Missy.

Afterward, Missy cries while the Fantastics and Sunshine mock her. Rogers grabs the microphone and informs Tatum: “(he’s) never seen Missy…look so good.” HA! Grappler tries to defend Missy’s honor, but the Fantastics double-backdrop him. As the Dallas faithful jumps for joy, the Fantastics ram the heels together to send them packing.

Conclusion: Absolutely excellent episode! Once again, the Fantastics did not disappoint, and Sunshine got the better of Missy. Brody and Gordy set the stage for a bloodbath. Also, the Freebirds hung on to their titles, but what will happen at the spectacular? Regal gave Brown a proper introduction to the WCWA by giving him a hard fought draw. Honestly, this was one of the best episodes of the entire series.

Next week, Lance and Brown battle Hayes and Roberts AND Brody versus Gordy.

TV Rating: NONE
