Can Parsons, Kabuki, and Casey upset Hart’s crew and become the #1 contenders to the Six-Man titles? What’s up the Dynamic Duo’s sleeves tonight? Please take your seats, and we’ll get started.

Opening montage.

Match 1: The “Heartthrob of New Jersey” Jack Victory versus Mike Reed


Rating: DUD

Summary: Prelim match in any barn within the state of Texas. Victory would maintain his moniker until Jon Bon Jovi made Sayreville, NJ famous.

We revisit the main event from two weeks ago when the Von Erichs battled the Dynamic Duo in a wild Texas Tornado match.

Match 2: “Gentleman” Chris Adams versus Sean Cody


Rating: *

Summary: Showcase match for Adams.

After the match, Adams deals Cody more punishment, and Gino Hernandez enters the ring. While Adams demolishes referee David Manning, Hernandez rids the ring of the fallen Cody. Adams subdues Manning, and Hernandez cuts Manning’s hair. How dastardly! Rick Hazzard arrives to stop the nefariousness, but Adams shears more hair from Manning’s mane. Quite the hairy situation, no?

Video featuring the stars of WCCW airs. I have no idea what the musical companion piece is, but I’d bet the Von Erich ranch that it’s a WWE Network substitution.

Prior to the next match, Pulley announced that Hazzard has fined the Dynamic Duo $1000 for their actions against Manning. Methinks they’ll need to downgrade from premium gasoline in the Corvette.

Match 3 (non-title): WCCW Six-Man tag team champions One Man Gang, “Maniac” Mark Lewin, & “Killer” Tim Brooks (w/ Gary Hart) versus “Iceman” King Parsons, Kabuki, and Scott Casey (w/ Sunshine)


Rating: **

Summary: Something’s missing here.

After the match, Lewin and Gang double-team Parsons, and Gang SQUISHES Parsons with a 747. Suddenly, Bruiser Brody storms the ring and dropkicks Gang over the top rope to the floor. He sends Lewin atop the broadcast table and brawls with him amongst the Dallas faithful. Hart quickly gathers his troops and retreats to the locker room while a crazed Brody ignites the excitement within the Sportatorium.

Next week, Kevin and Adams will collide once more prior to the Labor Day spectacular.

Conclusion: Brody’s return was a fantastic moment to highlight the episode. We’ll see what mayhem he can cause to Hart’s family going forward. Also, the Dynamic Duo got their hands slapped for their amateur barbershop work. The Von Erichs must put a stop to this.

TV Rating: NONE
