Taped from Dallas, TX

Airdate: September 21, 1985 (taped 09/06)

Attendance: unknown

Hosted by Bill Mercer

Can Kevin and Kerry take the American tag titles from the Dynamic Duo? What happens in the six-man title match? Who’s the latest acquisition of Hart? Let’s crank this one started and see what happens!

Opening montage.

Match 1: “Hollywood” John Tatum versus Mike Bond


Rating: *

Summary: Bond gave as well as he got, but Tatum demolished him in the end. While it would have made sense to see this match prior to Tatum’s match against Brody, witnessing it afterward reestablishes Tatum’s heel character. Arn Anderson may have been watching this match.

Match 2 for the WCCW World Six-Man tag titles: One Man Gang, “Maniac” Mark Lewin, & “Killer” Time Brooks the “Heartthrob of New Jersey” Jack Victory (champions with Gary Hart) versus Kerry Von Erich, Kevin Von Erich, & Bruiser Brody Brian Adias


Rating: ***

Summary: Hart’s team built a solid heat segment against Kerry until the hot tag cost them the titles. I’m surprised Victory didn’t take the fall, but having Lewin lose wouldn’t kill his heat.

After the match, pandemonium erupts with all six wrestlers in the ring until the Von Erichs and Adias clean house.

Sorry, Chester.

Match 3: Brian Adias versus Jim Powell


Rating: ½*

Summary: Showcase match for Adias, but Powell needs further training or a job with AFLAC.

Match 4: “Maniac” Mark Lewin (w/ Gary Hart) versus Ranji


Rating: DUD

Summary: Showcase match for Lewin. At least Ranji didn’t flub anything.

Following the match, Hart tries to control Lewin but doesn’t awaken Ranji.

Match 5 for the NWA American tag titles: The Dynamic Duo (champions) versus Kerry & Kevin Von Erich


Rating: ***

Summary: Scorching hot match with plenty of action and heat until the screwy finish.

Afterward, Kerry creams Adams with a discus punch sending him over the top rope to the floor. Before ring announcer Marc Lowrance informs us that the Dynamic Duo retains the belts, Manning grabs the microphone to state that the DQ was deliberate and is declaring the titles vacant.

Upset over the outcome, the Dynamic Duo grabs the Von Erichs to cut some hair. However, the Von Erichs steal the golden scissors and shear a few locks from Adams.

Conclusion: The main event is hotter than fireworks on the Fourth of July. Even better, Adias, despite losing the Texas title earlier in the evening, became a champion again alongside the Von Erichs. Let’s hope and pray that Ranji and Powell NEVER grace our TV screens again please.

Next week, Parsons and Kerry battle Lewin and Victory.

TV Rating: NONE
