Can Kerry defeat Gang in a return match? Will Cornette succeed in retrieving his green jacket? And who will join me for this playful episode?
I’m on it, Jack! Thanks for playing along, and please be careful on your bicycle.
Match 1 (non-title): NWA American tag team champions the Fantastics versus Kelly Kiniski & Jack Victory
Summary: Showcase match for the Fantastics where the tag formula worked wonders and enthralled the Dallas faithful.
Backstage, Cornette cuts a promo on Casey while we revisit the match where Casey appropriated Cornette’s green blazer. We then revisit the match where Cornette ALMOST retrieved his blazer, but Casey retained it much to Cornette’s chagrin.
We then head to Fort Worth on 5/20 when Casey lifted his shoulder to defeat Oliver. As Oliver nails Casey, Cornette tosses his tennis racquet to him. Before Oliver can turn Casey’s lights out, Sunshine sprays him in the eyes with hairspray. Cornette shoves Sunshine, but she removes her heels and beats up Cornette to a RAUCOUS ovation.
At ringside wearing a different outfit, Cornette, along with the Midnight Express and Oliver, promises to not interfere but successfully retrieve the fancy green blazer.
Did I just hear something?
Watch out, Fancy!
Nothing, US, I’m not lying. Just go play with your dominoes.
Match 2: Rip Oliver (w/ Jim Cornette & the Midnight Express) versus Scott Casey (w/ Sunshine & Kabuki)
Summary: More storyline than match as you will see.
As the match concludes, Cornette tries to snag his green jacket away from Sunshine, but Casey rips it away from him. Kabuki keeps the Midnight Express at bay, and the heels scamper backstage.
Match 3 (non-title): NWA Texas champion the “Handsome Half-Breed” Gino Hernandez versus Johnny Mantell
Summary: Showcase match for Gino.
Match 4: The “Modern Day Warrior” Kerry Von Erich versus One Man Gang (w/ Gary Hart)
Summary: HOT main event with a crappy ending.
After the match, Gang slams Kerry at Hart’s behest. He then misses a 747, so Kerry dropkicks him down to the floor. As Gang returns, a brawl erupts. The locker room empties to separate them to close out the show.
Conclusion: The Kerry-Gang feud marches on while Gino showcased his talent. Also, Cornette failed once again to retrieve his green blazer, yet the Fantastics wowed the Dallas faithful with a victory. What’s that, US?
You might want to keep your voice down, you ass, er, I mean, US.
OK, I have to run now.
Next week, the Dynamic Duo square off against Kerry and Kabuki.
