Taped from Dallas, TX

Airdate: May 28, 1983 (taped 05/13)

Attendance: unknown

Hosted by Bill Mercer

Who will participate in a captain’s match? Can Kevin, David, and Parsons earn a title shot by defeating the Freebirds in a non-title match? Will Parsons get revenge against Roberts? Let’s hope tonight’s guest doesn’t brandish a .44 Magnum.

Opening montage.

Match 1: “Gentleman” Chris Adams versus Johnny Mantell


Rating: **

Summary: Decent scientific match with strong psychology.

We then revisit the Kevin-Flair match from 4/1. If you want the details, catch my reflection of the 4/9 episode here.

Prior to the main event, Parsons grabs the microphone, requests his participation in the match, and threatens to cut Roberts’ hair in retribution for last week’s fiasco.

Match 2 (captain): Buddy Roberts versus “Iceman” King Parsons


Rating: *½

Summary: Quick revenge match for Parsons.

After the match, Roberts thwarts Parsons’ attempt at retrieving his barber tools. Next, he retrieves his own scissors, but Parsons head-butts him and gains control of the scissors. He then cuts a few locks of Roberts’ hair before Roberts hightails it.

Match 3 (non-title): WCCW Six-Man tag champions the Freebirds versus “Iceman” King Parsons, David & Kevin Von Erich


Rating: **

Summary: Sizzling hot main event where the Freebirds stole one from our heroes.

Conclusion: Despite Parsons’ getting revenge for Roberts’ misdeeds, the Freebirds stood tall in a solid main event. Quite explosive, no?

TV Rating: NONE

Stay tuned for WCCW 06-04-83!
