Opening montage.

As the program begins, Saldi mentions that Kevin defeated Bundy to become the NEW American champion (9/6 in Fort Worth). Mercer then notes another title change where Bundy and Irwin became American tag champions recently (9/10 in Dallas).

Match 1 (non-title): NWA American tag team champions King Kong Bundy & “Wild” Bill Irwin (w/ Arman Hussein) versus Al Madril & Jose Lothario


Rating: **½

Summary: Decent match to showcase the new champions.

After the match, Hussein enters the ring only to get caught by Madril.

Following a commercial break, Mercer interviews Kevin who claims that Dragon’s sleeper is without question a choke hold.

Match 2 (non-title): NWA American champion Kevin Von Erich versus Magic Dragon (w/ Arman Hussein)


Rating: **

Summary: Showcase match for the new champion.

Another satisfied popcorn customer. Woohoo!

Match 3: The “Modern Day Warrior” Kerry Von Erich versus Arman Hussein


Rating: *

Summary: Showcase match for Kerry.

Following a commercial break, Mercer interviews Irwin and Bundy with Hussein. While Irwin cuts a promo on Kevin, Bundy runs down McGraw.

Match 4 (non-title): All-Asia champion Great Kabuki (w/ Gary Hart) versus Bugsy McGraw


Rating: *½

Summary: Too many rest holds for my taste. Blech!

Following a commercial break, Mercer interviews a frustrated McGraw who’s determined to get Kabuki with Hart handcuffed to the top rope.

Conclusion: Although the show opened with a decent match, it went downhill fast.

Thanks for pitching in, Alex. I hope you pay WCCW another visit soon.

TV Rating: NONE
