Opening montage.

Match 1: David Peterson versus Jim Powell


Rating: ½*

Summary: Showcase match for newcomer Peterson.

Match 2 (non-title): NWA Texas champion the “Handsome Half-Breed” Gino Hernandez versus Kevin Von Erich


Rating: ***

Summary: Much to the delight of the Dallas faithful, Kevin defeated one of his nemeses.

After the match, Hernandez feeds Kevin a back elbow, and Adams joins him to shear some of Kevin’s red mane. Suddenly, Kerry, in street clothes, joins the fray to halt any chicanery. Adams lays out Kerry with a superkick, and Hernandez clips a few tufts of hair from the “Modern Day Warrior.” Bailing from the ring, the Dynamic Duo celebrates its bounty.

More video footage airs of the feud between the Von Erichs and the Dynamic Duo including the near decapitation of referee David Manning, Hernandez getting stripped of his suit, and Kerry in a half-shirt.

Match 3: “Gentleman” Chris Adams (w/ Gino Hernandez) versus Scott Casey (w/o Sunshine)


Rating: **½

Summary: Fifteen grueling minutes for that god-awful finish? Casey may be a Texas cowboy, but Adams should have beaten him yet taken some lumps afterward to send the Dallas faithful home happy.

Conclusion: Are you ready for the Cotton Bowl?

I am serious, and please don’t call me Shirley.

Nonetheless, the Dynamic Duo is up to their own tricks whether they win or lose. While Kevin earned a victory, it cost Kerry some hair. On another note, Casey defeated Adams but got doused in powder for his troubles.

Also, Peterson looked good in his WCCW debut, and Powell continued to make a fool of himself albeit without any botches again.

Next week, action from the Cotton Bowl!


  1. Scott Casey versus “Killer" Tim Brooks
  2. Tommy Montana versus Kelly Kiniski
  3. David Peterson and “Hollywood” John Tatum (w/ Missy) versus the Fantastics

  6. In a taped-fist encounter, “Iceman” King Parsons faces the One Man Gang (w/ Gary Hart)
  7. In the main event, the Von Erichs battle the Dynamic Duo in a hair versus hair match.

I am serious and unquestionably excited.
