Taped from Dallas, TX

Airdate: September 1, 1984 (taped 08/17)

Attendance: unknown

Hosted by Bill Mercer

Can Kevin topple Hernandez and earn a shot at the Texas title? How will the Pretty Young Things fare against Parsons and Young? What’s going on between Hernandez and French? And who will join me for this unsettling episode?

Yikes, Freddy! Don’t scare the RSG-ites so much! They’ll be afraid to close their eyes at night.

Opening montage.

Match 1: “Gentleman” Chris Adams versus George Weingeroff


Rating: **

Summary: Decent babyface battle with Adams getting the duke.

After the match, Adams and Weingeroff shake hands. Great sportsmanship!

Match 2: Killer Khan (w/ Gen. Skandor Akbar) versus Mike Gallagher


Rating: DUD

Summary: Showcase match for Khan.

At ringside, Mercer interviews Hernandez who complains about Stella Mae French and cuts a promo on her.

I believe Nancy’s mom told her not to fall asleep in the tub. You could be right about Hernandez’s obsession.

Match 3: Pretty Young Things versus “Iceman” King Parsons & “Sweet Brown Sugar” Skip Young


Rating: **

Summary: Solid tag match that followed the tag formula to a degree and had the Dallas faithful on the edge of their collective seats.

After the match, the Pretty Young Things dispose of Parsons over the top rope and attempt their finisher on Young. Immediately, Parsons returned to the ring to thwart their effort and cause Ware to slip off the top turnbuckle.

Match 4 (non-title): NWA Texas champion the “Handsome Half-Breed" Gino Hernandez versus Kevin Von Erich


Rating: *½

Summary: In purely sycophantic fashion, Hernandez broke the hearts of the Dallas faithful by defeating its hero.

After the match, Stella Mae French enters the ring and attacks Hernandez much to the delight of the Dallas faithful. Referees David Manning and Bronko Lubich restrain her, and Hernandez readies his foreign object. When Hernandez attempts to strike her, Kevin clobbers him. They then double-team Hernandez, and the foreign object gets dislodged. Although Hernandez escapes, Lubich reverses the decision. Another scuffle breaks out, and Hernandez tosses a chair into the ring. Kevin’s a hero!

Sorry, Chester.

Following a commercial break, Mercer interviews Kevin who calls French “crazy” but is ready for Hernandez.

Conclusion: Solid show with two good undercard matches and a fun main event. I can only wonder how stir-crazy Hernandez will become due to French’s unmitigated hatred for him. With Parson’s help, Young earned retribution against the Pretty Young Things while Adams and Weingeroff wrestled an evenly-matched scientific opener. What do you think, Freddy?

You said that with tongue-in-cheek, no? Don’t make me call the cops on you. Good night!

TV Rating: NONE
