Can Madril achieve gold against Kabuki? What’s on the horizon for David and Bundy? Let’s find out!

Let’s hope so, Lynda.

Opening montage.

As the program begins, Saldi announces that Kabuki won the (phony version of the) All-Asia title and will defend it against Madril tonight.

Beats me, Sarah.

Match 1: David Von Erich versus Roberto Renesto


Rating: DUD

Summary: Showcase match for David.

After the match, Mercer interviews David who’s proud of his cowbell and will have it ready for Bundy next week.

Match 2: “Mr. USA” Bugsy McGraw versus Pete Montrose


Rating: DUD

Summary: Showcase match for McGraw.

After the match, McGraw grabs the microphone and calls out Kabuki.

Following a commercial break, McGraw’s still in the ring and taunts Kabuki.

Match 3 for the All-Asia title: Great Kabuki (champion w/ Gary Hart) versus Al Madril


Rating: **

Summary: The last two times Madril wrestled on TV, he admirably fought a champion to a draw. While Kabuki brought some workrate to go along with his ever-so-boring nerve holds, Madril’s passion and relentlessness made for an entertaining match.

After a commercial break, a video featuring “the many faces of Kabuki” airs. In the meantime, I get my laundry done.

Match 4: NWA American champion King Kong Bundy & NWA Texas champion “Wild” Bill Irwin (w/ Arman Hussein) versus Brian Adias & Sal Olivares


Rating: *½

Summary: Showcase match for Bundy and Irwin.

After the match, Mercer interviews Bundy with Hussein. Bundy dismisses David as a challenger and refers to him as a “runt.”

Conclusion: Totally skippable episode.

I second that, Lynda. Thanks for stopping by!

TV Rating: NONE
