Can Kerry fight his way to the Brass Knuckles title? Who’s the newcomer? Who or what will assist me with tonight’s presentation?

Kim Alexis? Wow! Great to have you in one of my reflections! Welcome aboard!

Opening montage.

Match 1: “Iceman” King Parsons & Johnny Mantell versus Buddy Roberts & The Mongol


Rating: **

Summary: Run-of-the-mill TV tag match that served as an appetizer for the Roberts-Parsons hair match at the extravaganza.

Match 2: Kamala (w/ Gen. Skandor Akbar & Friday) versus Mike Reed


Rating: DUD

Summary: Showcase match for Kamala along with a huge waste of time.

Match 3: Mr. Ebony (w/ Gen. Skandor Akbar) versus Ron Starr


Rating: DUD

Summary: Showcase match for the newcomer.

After the match, Mercer interviews Akbar with Ebony at ringside.

Video featuring Kerry Von Erich airs. Featured are Harley Race, King Kong Bundy, and “Wild” Bill Irwin.

Match 4 for the WCCW Brass Knuckles title: Terry Gordy (champion w/ Michael Hayes) versus the “Modern Day Warrior” Kerry Von Erich (w/ Kevin Von Erich)


Rating: *

Summary: Brutal match with heel chicanery allowing Gordy to keep his belt.

Following a commercial break, Mercer interviews the Freebirds in the ring. Hayes touts the Freebirds’ accomplishments and believes they’d run the Von Erichs ragged in the Omni or Mid-South Coliseum. He then calls Brody a “sell-out.” Meanwhile, Roberts describes the hair removal cream that will be applied to Parsons at the extravaganza. Almost singlehandedly, these guys are keeping storylines flowing in WCCW.

Conclusion: Completely skippable episode unless you’re dying to discover who Mr. Ebony is.

Thanks for hanging out, Kim. Don’t be a stranger.

TV Rating: NONE

Stay tuned for WCCW 06-25-83!
