WCCW 05-24-86

Taped from Dallas, TX

Airdate: May 24, 1986 (taped 05/16)

Attendance: unknown

Hosted by Bill Mercer

How will Lance and Brody fare against Rude and Gang? Will Simpson get the better of Tatum? Or will Missy have something to say about it? With the PoC behind us, what will WCWA do to enthrall us now and going forward?

Opening montage.

Remarkably, Mercer’s introduction was cut short.

Oh, shit. The “World Famous” Sportatorium is rather empty tonight.

Match 1: Mark Youngblood versus the Assassin


Rating: **

Summary: As good a preliminary match as you’re going to get in this territory. I guess this won’t be a one-off for Mr. Wrestling the Assassin.

Match 2: The Missing Link (w/ Sunshine) versus the Grappler


Rating: *

Summary: If Sunshine hadn’t been at ringside, this match would have no heat and receive zilch for its value.

Match 3: “Hollywood” John Tatum (w/ Missy Hyatt) versus Steve Simpson


Rating: **

Summary: Once again, Hyatt’s interference allows Tatum to achieve victory.

Match 4: “Ravishing” Rick Rude & One Man Gang (w/ Percy Pringle) versus Bruiser Brody & Lance Von Erich


Rating: **½

Summary: Unlike the previous match where the heel stole the match with some chicanery, the babyfaces snagged victory in a convoluted manner.

Following the match, an irate Pringle lambastes the decision by Hazzard while Lance helps a battered Brody back to the locker room. The Dallas faithful showers Pringle with a rather lewd chant to end the show.

Conclusion: Mercer set the tone with the promotion heading in the direction of the Independence Day show. Rude seems to have his hands full with Brody and was on the losing end of a tag team bout in the main event. Tatum’s winning ways continued thanks to Missy. Meanwhile, Link stunk up the ring yet again. Let’s hope they cleaned the Sportatorium thoroughly before the next show.

Next week, Chris Adams battles Tatum while “Iceman” King Parsons wrestles Kabuki. Plus, another big announcement surrounding WCWA!

TV Rating: NONE
