Opening montage.

Prior to the opening match, Lowrance interviews Hussein.

Not THAT Hussein!

My bad, Daisy! Keep up the great work!

Match 1: Arman Hussein versus Sal Olivares


Rating: DUD

Summary: Showcase match for Hussein.

Match 2: Bugsy McGraw versus Raul Castro


Rating: ½*

Summary: Showcase match for McGraw.

After a commercial break, Lowrance interviews WCCW tag team champions Al Madril and Kerry Von Erich. Not to besmirch the dead, but Kerry's interviewing skills were beyond amateur here.

Match 3 (non-title): NWA Texas champion "Wild" Bill Irwin versus Richard Blood


Rating: *

Summary: Showcase match for Irwin.

After the match, Lowrance interviews Irwin who's proud of his successful title defenses.

Match 4 (non-title): NWA American champion the "Modern Day Warrior" Kerry Von Erich versus Blackie Gordman


Rating: *

Summary: Showcase match for Kerry.

In a pre-recorded interview, Lowrance interviews Irwin again who will take on all comers. Next, Hussein and Bundy understand how important money is.

Match 5: The Spoiler versus King Kong Bundy (w/ Arman Hussein)


Rating: ½*

Summary: More heel character establishment for Bundy.

After the match, Bundy and Spoiler brawl in the ring until officials separate them.

Lowrance then interviews Spoiler who calls Bundy a "big, fat slob" and wants a rematch.

Conclusion: I suspect that there's more to the Bundy-Spoiler confrontation than just this match. On another note, I'm glad Kerry made mincemeat out of Gordman.

Thanks, Daisy. It was great sharing this episode with you. Don't be a stranger!

TV Rating: NONE
