WCCW 10-02-82

Taped from Dallas, TX

Airdate: October 02, 1982 (taped 9/28)

Attendance: unknown

Hosted by Bill Mercer & Jay Saldi

Can the Von Erich trio capture victory? How will Dusek react to McGraw’s shenanigans? And what does chess have to do with pro wrestling anyway?

Let’s not go crazy, Claudia. It’s just a teaser.

Opening montage.

Prior to the opening match, Saldi interviews Kevin, David, and Kerry. Apparently, they’ve NEVER lost a six-man tag team match.

Match 1 (six-man): David, Kevin, & Kerry Von Erich versus King Kong Bundy, “Wild” Bill Irwin, & Arman Hussein


Rating: *

Summary: Since they didn’t truly follow the tag formula, the match was somewhat disjointed albeit exciting.

Be careful with that match, Claudia!

Match 2: “Captain” Frank Dusek versus Bugsy McGraw


Rating: *

Summary: Nothing but a comedy match.

We then revisit the NWA World title match from 8/15 from Reunion Arena between Kerry and “Nature Boy” Ric Flair. Read my 8/28 reflection to get the entire story.

Mercer then interviews Gary Hart with the Great Kabuki.

Match 3: Magic Dragon & the Great Kabuki (w/ Gary Hart) versus Al Madril & the Samoan


Rating: ½*

Summary: Showcase match for Kabuki and Dragon.

Prior to the next match, Mercer interviews Checkmate, but Hart interrupts them.

Match 4: Checkmate (w/ Gary Hart) versus Brian Adias


Rating: *

Summary: Showcase match for Checkmate.

To close out the show, Mercer interviews Irwin who cuts a promo on David to promote their match for the Texas title next week.

Conclusion: The triple drop kick alone is worthy of your time to watch this show. Besides that, if you’d rather catch highlights of the Flair-Kerry match than watch it in its entirety, this show provides it for you. Claudia, how did you like the show?

Quite like this show, Claudia’s on fire!

TV Rating: NONE
