Match 2: “Hollywood” John Tatum (w/ Missy Hyatt) versus Rick McCord


Rating: *

Summary: Showcase match for Tatum. It’s really cool to see these guys either break out new moves or introduce them to the Dallas scene.

Match 3 (hair versus hair, non-title): NWA American tag team champions the Von Erichs versus the Dynamic Duo


Rating: ****

Summary: Tremendously historical match as the Von Erichs triumph over the Dynamic Duo in a quest to shave them bald.

After the match, a table gets placed inside the ring while the Dallas faithful goes bananas. Hernandez tries to escape, but Brian Adias and Lance thwart his efforts.

Following a commercial break, Adams gets his hair cut by some of his victims. Kerry shears Adams’ mane with an electric razor, and Kevin finishes the job. As the Dallas faithful chants “Bal-die,” Adams hides his head in shame with a towel.

Hernandez gets hauled into the ring but immediately exits. Amazingly, sixteen-year-old Chris Von Erich tackles him like a Longhorn.

Upon getting hoisted onto a chair, Hernandez gets his hair shaved by Kevin. Kerry gets his turn, and the “Half-Breed” isn’t terribly handsome any longer. Much to the delight of the Dallas faithful, Chris gets a turn, yet Kerry finishes the job. Disgraced, Hernandez grabs a towel for his head and flees the Cotton Bowl.

Conclusion: What can I say? The hair versus hair match is a classic to be witnessed by all wrestling fans. Grab your favorite nibblins and tune in ASAP.

Next week, Lance Von Erich in action!

TV Rating: NONE
