Opening montage.

Match 1: One Man Gang versus Jerry Allen


Rating: ½*

Summary: Showcase match for Allen.

Match 2 (dwarf): Little Tokyo versus Little Mr. T


Rating: ½*

Summary: Fun for the whole family.

SIDE NOTE: This show occurred on the weekend of WWF WrestleMania 2. For those unaware, Mr. T returned to the WWF and boxed against “Rowdy” Roddy Piper at the Nassau Coliseum. Meanwhile, the TV show The A-Team was finishing its third season on NBC with Mr. T in a starring role. It made perfect sense for WCCW to have Little Mr. T on the card and put him over clean.

Match 3: Bruiser Brody versus Terry “Bam Bam” Gordy


Rating: DUD

Summary: Mere appetizer for their encounter on May 4.

After the match, Brody delivers a second big boot, reclaims his other boot, and pounds Gordy with it. They migrate to the floor and scrum into the Dallas faithful. Upon ramming Gordy face-first into the exterior door, Brody sends Gordy into the parking lot. The Dallas faithful showers him out of appreciation with a “Brui-ser” chant.

At ringside, Mercer interviews referee David Manning who urges fans to get their votes in for the top contender for the World title on May 4. He lists “Iceman” King Parsons, Missing Link, Scott Casey, Gang, and remarkably Fritz Von Erich as votes already submitted.

Match 4: Lance Von Erich & Brickhouse Brown versus the Freebirds


Rating: ***

Summary: With Brown in the ring, the Freebirds looked like they would take it; however, when Lance inserted himself into the match, the Dallas faithful’s enthusiasm carried him to victory.

Conclusion: Although the Brody-Gordy encounter was exciting, this episode paled in comparison to last week’s. Nonetheless, the Freebirds took Lance and Brown on a fun ride in the main event.

Next week, Kerry and Brody battle Hayes and Gordy.

TV Rating: NONE
