Can Kerry and Kevin Von Erich defeat Irwin and Bundy? Speaking of Bundy, what happened to him? Also, what else could happen on this episode? Let’s find out!
Match 1: Bugsy McGraw versus Pete Montrose
McGraw countered a side headlock by placing Montrose atop the top turnbuckle.
According to Saldi, King Kong Bundy lost his hair in San Antonio. I knew the Alamo was quite a sight, but it certainly doesn’t cause you to lose your hair.
McGraw then gave Montrose a back elbow and slammed him.
When he mounted the top turnbuckle, he SQUISHED Montrose.
Summary: Showcase match for McGraw.
After the match, Mercer interviews McGraw at ringside. McGraw then brings two boys with him and promises a surprise.
Match 2: Al Madril versus Raul Castro
As Madril tied Castro up in the ropes, he attempted to remove the mask.
He then delivered a flying shoulder block but messed up a figure-four leg lock.
When Castro gave him a cross corner whip, Madril leaped to the second turnbuckle.
He then hit a cross body block.
Summary: Showcase match for Madril who wants another crack at Irwin.
Saldi interviews the American tag team champions—Kerry and Kevin Von Erich—who are ready for tonight’s challenge.
Match 3: Great Kabuki (w/ Gary Hart) versus Brian Adias
Kabuki countered a wrist lock with a monkey flip.
According to Saldi, Adias lost the TV title to Irwin; hence, Irwin now has two titles.
Kabuki then hit a superkick while Saldi promoted “Wildfire” Tommy Rich and “Nature Boy” Ric Flair’s impending arrivals in the coming weeks.
When Adias gave Kabuki a cross corner whip, he followed with a monkey flip.
He then gave Kabuki another cross corner whip but ate a second superkick on his follow-through.
As Kabuki delivered a thrust kick, the Dallas faithful chanted “go Brian, go.”
Their hero responded with a dropkick, but Kabuki unleashed another vicious thrust kick to thwart the onslaught.
Shortly after, Adias hit a second dropkick prior to executing a swinging neckbreaker.
A second superkick by Kabuki sent Adias over the top rope to the floor.
Suddenly, a gorilla entered the ring chasing Kabuki to the floor. WTF?
Upon further review, the gorilla was McGraw in disguise. HA!
Needless to say, but Kabuki and Hart hightailed it backstage.
Although the Dallas faithful loved the hijinks, Kabuki won by DQ.
Summary: McGraw promised us a surprise, and he delivered in spades.
After the match, Mercer interviews Hart who wants McGraw suspended. Abruptly, the gorilla interrupts and pie-faced Hart. I wonder if the pie was a Drunken Nut Pie from Emporium Pies. McGraw then laughs about Hart’s “sweet tooth.”
We then get a martial arts exhibition hosted by Hart who’s wearing a Chicago Cubs jacket. Woohoo! Nevertheless, Kabuki and Magic Dragon demonstrate while Mercer and Hart discuss kung fu, karate and jiu-jitsu. In the meantime, I made popcorn. Who wants some?
Match 4 (non-title); NWA American tag team champions Kerry & Kevin Von Erich versus NWA Texas and TV champion “Wild” Bill Irwin & NWA American champion King Kong Bundy (w/ Arman Hussein)
As I mentioned earlier, Bundy lost his hair in San Antonio and debuted his bald look on this show.
Kevin tagged in, mounted the second turnbuckle, and lowered the boom on Irwin.
When Kerry leap-frogged him, Irwin attempted a slam.
On the other hand, Kerry fell atop him for 2.
Bundy tagged in, gave Kerry a cross corner whip, and followed with an avalanche.
After he gave Kerry a second cross corner whip, Bundy came up empty on his follow-through.
Kevin tagged in, but Bundy clamped on a bear hug.
As Irwin tagged in, he delivered a backbreaker to Kevin for 2.
Kevin then leap-frogged and dropkicked Irwin to the delight of the Dallas faithful.
When Kerry tagged in, he landed a discus punch to Irwin for 2.
He then gave Irwin a knee drop for 2.
After Kerry missed a dropkick, Bundy tagged in and delivered a back elbow.
While the Dallas faithful chanted “go Kerry, go,” Irwin tagged in and hit a bicycle kick to Kerry.
Tags were exchanged on both sides while Kevin dropkicked Bundy.
As Kevin splashed Bundy, Irwin tagged in, mounted the second turnbuckle, and hit a flying elbow drop.
Irwin and Bundy won.
Summary: The American tag champions looked overmatched much to the dismay of the Dallas faithful.
To cap off the show, McGraw promises more surprises and eggs on the kids to yell “Hi, Mom.”
Conclusion: I apologize for the lack of a celebrity guest this week; however, the excitement contained within the episode more than makes up for it, right?
