Taped from Dallas, TX

Airdate: July 20, 1985 (taped 07/12)

Attendance: unknown

Hosted by Bill Mercer

Can Kevin defeat Adams and blow the roof off the Sportatorium? Will Kerry beat the odds by defeating Gang in a Chicago death match? What does Hart have in store for us this week? Let’s get ‘er started!

Opening montage.

Match 1: Scott Casey (w/ Sunshine) versus Mike Bond


Rating: **

Summary: Bond fell in love with that side head lock so much that it cost him dearly.

Perhaps not like that, Clark.

From Reno, Hart holds a press conference for the NEW World Six-Man tag team champions. He holds all the cards, so any challenge must come through him.

From Love Field in Dallas, Mercer interviews Kevin who wants a rematch. He also mentions that, due to a shoulder injury, Mike was unable to compete. Thus, when the Von Erichs defended the titles 2-on-3, they lost. A return match should be forthcoming “soon.”

At the Flight Desk restaurant, Mercer interviews Brian Adias who cuts a promo on Hart. Too soon for Crown Royal and a Lone Star?

Match 2: “Maniac” Mark Lewin (w/ Gary Hart) versus Mike Reed


Rating: *

Summary: Showcase match for the “Maniac.”

Match 3 (Chicago death): The “Modern Day Warrior” Kerry Von Erich versus the One Mn Gang (w/ Gary Hart)


Rating: **½

Summary: I was curious how Kerry would not only get Gang down on the mat but also keep him down. Hart’s interference proved costly, and Kerry took advantage en route to victory.

Match 4: “Gentleman” Chris Adams versus Kevin Von Erich


Rating: ***

Summary: Pure definition of a blood feud as Adams and Kevin thrilled the Dallas faithful to a fever pitch.

After the match, Kevin grabs the microphone, declares that he doesn’t give a damn about a DQ, and rams Adams face-first into the apron twice. Next, he tosses Adams out of the Sportatorium through the back door.

Conclusion: Hot episode with Kerry’s victory and the non-stop action between Kevin and Adams. We’ll have to find out just how long Hart and his henchmen will maintain their titles. As for my recommendation…

Next week, Mike returns to square off against his nemesis Brooks, and Kabuki battles Gang in a lumberjack match.

TV Rating: NONE
