WCCW 8-14-82

Taped from Dallas, TX

Airdate: August 14, 1982 (taped 8/3)

Attendance: unknown

Hosted by Bill Mercer

How will Madril fare against Flair? Will Lothario give Kabuki his comeuppance? How does Nick Rivers play a part in all of this? Let's find out!

Opening montage.

Prior to the first match, Mercer interviews Kevin Von Erich who previews the main event. Hopefully, it’s not too bad.

Match 1: Superfly (w/ Arman Hussein) versus Sal Olivares


Rating: ½*

Summary: Showcase match for Superfly with some comedy from McGraw.

After the match, Mercer interviews Hussein with Superfly. Perhaps Hussein should investigate McGraw further.

Match 2: Magic Dragon & Great Kabuki versus Jose Lothario & Blue Demon


Rating: DUD

Summary: Just a taste of Lothario versus Kabuki.

After the match, Mercer interviews Lothario who should notify Fritz immediately that he wants a series of matches against Kabuki.

Match 3: Kevin Von Erich versus “Captain” Frank Dusek


Rating: *½

Summary: Showcase match for Kevin as Dusek brought nothing to the match. Methinks Dusek may be preoccupied with other things.

Prior to the main event, Mercer interviews Madril. Let’s hope he has a good strategy against Flair.

Match 4 (non-title): NWA World champion “Nature Boy” Ric Flair versus Al Madril


Rating: **1/2

Summary: Flair made Madril look formidable in this ten-minute saga, and I wonder how he’ll fare against Kerry at Wrestling Star Wars on 8/15.

After the match, Madril gives Flair a cross corner whip resulting in a Flair flip.

Mercer then interviews an agitated Flair who cuts a promo on Madril. I’ve got a sneaky suspicion that he’ll make a hasty retreat in the near future.

Conclusion: While this show is quite entertaining with the Flair-Madril time-limit draw, I expect the matches from the supershow to be genuinely explosive.

TV Rating: NONE
