WCCW 04-13-85

Taped from Dallas, TX

Airdate: April 13, 1985 (taped 04/05)

Attendance: unknown

Hosted by Bill Mercer

Who will win the vacant American tag team titles? How will Hercules fare against the nefarious yet beloved Adams? And just who in God’s name is wrestling Kevin tonight?

Mr. Hemsworth, you are SO not 1985. Please bring me a REAL god of thunder:

Opening montage.

Match 1: Scott Casey versus Terry Daniels


Rating: DUD

Summary: Like I mentioned earlier, Casey began his career in the 70s; thus, his style was very mat based. Nevertheless, the 80s called, and the Dallas faithful wanted their opening match back.

Match 2 (non-title): NWA American champion “Gentleman” Chris Adams versus Hercules Hernandez (w/ Sunshine)


Rating: *½

Summary: While the Dallas faithful was split due to the female contingent’s admiration for the Englishman, it took Gino’s involvement to garner cheers for Hercules despite his association with Sunshine.

After the match, the Dynamic Duo tries to double-team Hercules, but Sunshine sprays Aquanet to tease them, er, I mean scatter them from the ring.

Match 3: Kevin Von Erich versus Thor


Rating: *½

Summary: Showcase match for the #1 contender to the NWA World title. Sorry, Thor, but you lost.

Sorry, Hemsworth, but Tom Petty has some advice for you:

At ringside, Mercer interviews Sunshine who’s unhappy about the Dynamic Duo’s chicanery and wants to recruit yet another wrestler to counteract them. Although she won’t reveal his identity, she states that we’ll recognize him when we see him.

Match 4 for the vacant NWA American tag team titles: The Midnight Express (w/ Jim Cornette) versus the Fantastics


Rating: ***

Summary: WILD main event with a controversial finish to enable further rematches.

Conclusion: Can you handle another match between the Midnight Express and Fantastics?

Well, Thor, it doesn’t take much to please you as I was polling the RSG-ites.

Nonetheless, a match to firmly crown American tag team champions must be forthcoming. While Sunshine needs reinforcements for the Dynamic Duo, Kevin is RED HOT while on his way to a date against Ric Flair.

Quick question: I find it unique that two WCCW wrestlers portrayed gods from an earlier culture while the Von Erichs were staunch Christians.

Thor, take it elsewhere and go find some girls.

TV Rating: NONE
