Can Parsons tenderize Roberts in the main event? How can Lothario gain a juicy victory over Kamala? Will Adams prevail against an established Butcher? Who will dare to assist me in carving this meaty episode?
Domino, glad you’re here. Grab a seat and sink your teeth into the action.
Prior to the opening match, Garvin grabs the microphone and challenges David Von Erich to any type of match.
Match 1: “Gorgeous” Jimmy Garvin (w/ Sunshine) versus Mike Bond
Summary: Showcase match for Garvin.
TEA TIME WITH CHRIS ADAMS: Mercer interviews Adams over tea, and Adams claims to be from Stratford-upon-Avon—birthplace of William Shakespeare. While he acknowledges the brawling nature of WCCW, he proudly touts the Guerrero family. He continues by stating that he’s never met any of the Von Erichs, but describes the Mongol as a “vicious man.” Crumpets, anyone?
Match 2: “Gentleman” Chris Adams versus Paul “Butcher” Vachon
Summary: Solid victory for Adams over the seasoned veteran. I wonder if he got brisket recommendations during the rest holds.
Match 3: Kamala (w/ Gen. Skandor Akbar & Friday) versus Jose Lothario
Summary: I bet Kamala and Vachon could share meat-tenderizing tips. Either that or they recently caught a viewing of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
After the match, Kamala continues to bite the BUSTED OPEN Lothario until Adams storms the ring to rescue Lothario.
Match 4: “Iceman” King Parsons versus Buddy Roberts
Summary: The chemistry between Parsons and Roberts is beginning to boil. I can’t wait for it to truly start bubbling over.
After the match, Hayes pulls out a pair of scissors, but Parsons knocks them out of Hayes’ hands. He then grabs the scissors, but Roberts and Hayes double-team him. As Gordy joins the fray, he piledrives Parsons, and Hayes tosses Manning to the floor. Roberts then cuts Parsons’ braids while Hayes beats up Manning and Fred Sinclair. While not wearing a medic’s helmet, Adams storms the ring again to save a babyface’s bacon.
Conclusion: The Freebirds just made it personal with Parsons, so I suspect some continuation on the hair angle. The barbaric actions of Kamala help to further the animalistic and chaotic nature of his character. Kudos to Lothario for enhancing Kamala’s devastation. Lastly, Adams looks solid in his victory over Vachon. Were you able to successfully digest this episode, Domino?
I’m glad you’re satiated, Domino. Check back again, and we’ll carve up more Texas ‘rasslin’.
