Can the Von Erichs beat the Freebirds for the six-man titles in a Badstreet match? Will the Super Destroyers retain their titles, or will the team of Parsons and Zumhofe achieve gold? How will JYD fare against the deranged Link? And who will join me for the Parade of Champions?

I guess Indiana Jones forgot to tell her how hot Texas gets in early May. At least he’s got a new girl now.

Since the 5/5 episode was a clip show, we’ll skip to the following week for matches from the David Von Erich Memorial Parade of Champions held at Texas Stadium.

Opening montage.

Match 1: Junkyard Dog versus the Missing Link (w/ Gen. Skandor Akbar)


Rating: *

Summary: Short match with a sinister finish thanks to Akbar.

After the match, referee Bronko Lubich enters the ring and advises Sinclair of Akbar’s shenanigans. Sinclair then reverses his decision and raises JYD’s hand in victory while the HUGE Irving faithful rejoice.

Missing from the WWE Network is Jill Floyd, sister of Joey Floyd from Honeysuckle Rose, singing “Heaven Needed A Champion.”

I wonder what’s tasty at the concession stand.

Match 2 for the NWA American tag titles: Super Destroyers (champions w/ Gen. Skandor Akbar) versus “Iceman” King Parsons & “Rock’n’Roll” Buck Zumhofe
