Can Kabuki, with or without the help of Hayes, run the gauntlet? Will Regal capture gold by defeating Adias for the Texas title? Who wins the tag team match in the main event? The 3rd annual David Von Erich Memorial Parade of Champions starts now!

Opening montage.

Prior to the match, Hayes warns Adams about wrestling with only one eye. Adams promptly refuses. No one-eye jokes, please.

Aw, c’mon, Pop.

Match 1 (handicap): Kabuki (w/ Michael P.S. Hayes) versus Mark Youngblood, Jerry Allen, Steve Simpson, & “Gentleman” Chris Adams


Rating: **

Summary: Kabuki got quite a bit of shine but couldn’t overcome the surging Simpson.

After the match, Kabuki levels Simpson with a third thrust kick, and Hayes joins him in double-teaming Simpson. Adams storms the ring and stymies Hayes. Next, he floors Kabuki with a superkick. The heels take the 2-on-1 advantage until heel miscommunication occurs due to an errant thrust kick by Kabuki. To clear the heels from the ring, Adams superkicks Kabuki again to a raucous ovation.

Match 2 for the WCWA Texas title: Brian Adias (champion) versus “Mr. Electricity” Steve Regal


Rating: ***

Summary: Great workrate between the wrestlers, and a move I’d not seen Adias previously use to attain victory.

Match 3: “Hollywood” John Tatum & the Grappler (w/ Missy Hyatt) versus the Fantastics “Brickhouse” Brown & “Gentleman” Chris Adams


Rating: ***

Summary: Solid tag bout with the returning Adams scoring the pin with a fabulous move for 1986.

Following the match, the heels dispose of Brown over the top rope and double-team Adams. They double-suplex Adams. To completely humiliate Adams, the heels hold him so that Missy can slap the BEJEEZUS out of him. Nefarious! Fortunately for Adams, Brown chases off the heels to halt the carnage.

Conclusion: Despite the lack of Fantastics, Adams and Brown delivered in the main event. Adias retained while looking good over the wily Regal. Although Kabuki defeated both Youngblood and Allen, Simpson, with his youthful energy, proved to be too much for him.

Next week, a double main event as the Von Erichs battle the Freebirds in a six-man lumberjack match, and “Ravishing” Rick Rude defends the World title against Bruiser Brody. Plus, a BONUS match.

TV Rating: NONE
