Can Madril and Spoiler ruin H & H Limited's night? Can you guess who will make a cameo for this show? Let's find out!

Opening montage.

Prior to the opening match, Lowrance interviews Irwin who referred to Frank Dusek as "Captain Crunch." I don't want to know what Irwin did with the milk.

My apologies, Miss Sullivan. Carry on.

Match 1 (non-title): NWA Texas champion "Wild" Bill Irwin versus Tom "Boogaloo" Shaft


Rating: DUD

Summary: Zero chemistry here.

Don't worry, Miss Sullivan. I won't tell.

After a commercial break, Lowrance announces an upcoming show in Lewisville, TX on 5/14. He then interviews Gary Hart and Arman Hussein.

Match 2: Carlos Zapata versus Ken Mantell


Rating: DUD

Summary: This was old school even for 1982.

After a commercial break, Lowrance shills an upcoming show in Ferris, TX on 5/15. He then interviews Fritz Von Erich who's ready for the match next week.

Match 3: The Great Kabuki (w/ Gary Hart) versus Mike Bond


Rating: DUD

Summary: This bond isn't worth the investment.

Match 4 (non-title): WCCW World tag team champions Bugsy McGraw & King Kong Bundy (w/ Arman Hussein) versus the Spoiler & Al Madril


Rating: **

Summary: Spoiler looked great in the short spurts he was on offense. You can certainly tell that he trained the man who would become the Undertaker in the years to come.

After the match, Madril grabs the microphone and requests five more minutes. Instead of honoring the request, Hussein nails Madril. While Bundy and McGraw tie up Spoiler in the ropes, the heels triple-team Madril. Spoiler then gets free and chases the heels away.

Thanks, Miss Sullivan. Good luck in court and hope to see you again soon.

Conclusion: This show was more of a vehicle to promote future episodes than having a good one itself. Skip this show, and let's hope all the hype for the next couple of episodes is worth it.

Counselor! Yes, you are! Wow!

TV Rating: NONE

Stay tuned for WCCW 5-8-82!
