Opening montage.

Match 1: The Fantastics versus the “Crippler” Rip Oliver & Jack Victory


Rating: ***

Summary: No matter who the Fantastics face, they make matches entertaining.

After the match, the Fantastics dropkick the heels out of the ring to a raucous ovation.

Following a commercial break, at the Dallas Society for Crippled Children, Mercer stands at the David Von Erich Memorial Playground for Handicapped Children. A plaque is shown commemorating the dedication that occurred on 6/18 at Founders Academy in Lewisville, TX. According to Mercer, the Von Erichs donated $24,000 from the David Von Erich Memorial Parade of Champions. He interviews Marilyn Swayze--the director of development for the society. Before the segment ends, we see a quick video with Fritz digging the ceremonial dirt alongside Kerry, Kevin, Mike, and Chris. Without question, the Von Erichs donated to a worthy cause.

Match 2 for the NWA American tag team titles: The Dynamic Duo (champions) versus Kevin & Kerry Von Erich


Rating: **½

Summary: Wild match with a freak accident that permitted the champions to retain. According to Mercer, since the Dynamic Duo won, they can choose the stipulation for the next match. In this case, things can get a little hairy sometimes.

Back at the Sportatorium, Mercer interviews Gary Hart with “Killer” Tim Brooks and One Man Gang. Hart is focused on the six-man titles. Conspicuously, “Maniac” Mark Lewin isn’t here; however, all three men crow about 1,001 pounds prepared to destroy all things Von Erich.

Match 3 (non-title): NWA American champion “Gentleman” Chris Adams versus Kabuki (w/ Sunshine)


Rating: **

Summary: Despite each wrestler inserting their signature kick into the match, Adams’ overzealousness cost him the match.

Afterward, Adams superkicks Kabuki out of the ring and tosses Sunshine down to the mat.

As retribution, Kabuki grabs Adams by his right leg and rams it into the ring post thrice.

Conclusion: What an incredible hour of entertaining wrestling! Kabuki beat Adams to send the Dallas faithful home happy while the Fantastics thrilled them every second they were between the ropes. On the other hand, the Von Erichs lost to the Dynamic Duo on Independence Day almost at the expense of David Manning. Definitely catch this episode as it well worth watching.

Next week, Kevin will square off with Adams.

TV Rating: NONE
