Special opening montage.

Partido 1 para el UWA World Junior Heavyweight title: El Solitario (champion) contra René Guajardo


Rating: **

Summary: A precursor to what lucha libre in America would become. I believe Rey Mysterio, Jr. took notes during this match.

Partido 2 para el UWA Women's title: Lola Gonzales (champion) versus Irma González


Rating: **1/2

Summary: The pace of the match was frenetic as both wrestlers busted their asses to put on a show. Additionally, Lola portrayed a great heel character and played to the crowd well.

After a commercial break, Mercer interviews Bundy who's smoking a cigar. Bundy believes that the Von Erichs stole from him and are "greedy."

Mercer then interviews Kevin Von Erich. When he asks Kevin about wrestling barefoot, Kevin "(feels) more natural" and touts David for winning the NWA Southern title in Florida.

Match 3: Harley Race versus the "Modern Day Warrior" Kerry Von Erich


Rating: ****

Summary: What a match! Everyone in Texas Stadium got their money's worth as their hero defeated the six-time NWA World champion smack dab in the middle of the ring.

Conclusion: With the spectacular #1 contender match and the much-better-than-expected women's match, this show is a no-brainer to recommend. Check this out STAT!

TV Rating: NONE

Stay tuned for WCCW 6-26-82!
