Surely you can’t be serious that Kerry and Madril can defeat over 900 pounds of Bundy and Superfly? Let’s find out!

Opening montage.

Mercer interviews Adias to open the show.

Match 1: The Great Kabuki (w/ Gary Hart) versus Roberto Renesto


Rating: DUD

Summary: Showcase match for Kabuki. Renesto would have greatly benefitted from a life preserver.

After the match, Jose Lothario enters the ring to challenge Kabuki.

Match 2: Brian Adias versus “Captain” Frank Dusek


Rating: *½

Summary: Quite the upset, yet Dusek has no one else to blame but himself.

After the match, Dusek grabs the microphone and informs Manning that he’s “gonna pay.” Don’t lose your composure, Dusek, or this’ll happen to you.

Following a commercial break, Mercer interviews McGraw who brought Roscoe the Clown with him and wants to go to war against the clowns behind H & H Ltd.

Match 3 (non-title): NWA Texas champion “Wild” Bill Irwin (w/ Arman Hussein) versus Bugsy McGraw (w/ Roscoe the Clown)


Rating: *

Summary: More spectacle than substance. Methinks Irwin flipped a switch.

Prior to the main event, Kerry and Madril discuss Bundy and Superfly. Afterward, Hussein, Bundy, and Superfly cut a promo on the champs.

Match 4 (non-title): WCCW World tag team champions the “Modern Day Warrior” Kerry Von Erich & Al Madril versus NWA American champion King Kong Bundy & Superfly (w/ Arman Hussein)


Rating: **

Summary: The champs overcame a huge weight disadvantage and defeated the monsters of H&H Ltd.

After the match, Flair gets up on the apron to stare down Kerry who pantomimes wearing the NWA World title.

Following a commercial break, Mercer interviews Flair who’s both impressed and surprised by Kerry. He then runs down both the Dallas Cowboys and Mavericks while stating “(Dallas) needs a champion.”

Methinks Flair owes Jones some kamikazes.

Conclusion: Well, folks, if you’re not ready for Wrestling Star Wars, then you’re either high as a kite or completely unplugged.

TV Rating: NONE
