WCCW 11-16-85

Taped from Dallas, TX

Airdate: November 16, 1985 (taped 11/01)

Attendance: unknown

Hosted by Bill Mercer

Who will be Pringle’s mystery opponent facing Kerry in the main event? Can the Dynamic Duo win a match never mind hide their less than illustrious hair? We’re breaking down the door to the upcoming Thanksgiving show, so let’s enjoy some Texas-style ‘rasslin’.

Opening montage.

Match 1: The “Heartthrob of New Jersey” Jack Victory (w/o Gary Hart) versus Mike Reed


Rating: *

Summary: Showcase match for the returning Victory.

Match 2 (non-title): NWA American champion “Ravishing” Rick Rude (w/ Percy Pringle III) versus Mike Bond


Rating: *

Summary: Showcase match for Rude.

At ringside, Mercer interviews Pringle alongside Rude about the mystery man who wrestles in tonight’s main event. While the Dallas faithful questions him about his bedroom habits, Pringle promises a “surprise.”

At Guy Lanie Lincoln-Mercury in Denton, Mercer interviews “Hollywood” Hogan John Tatum with Missy Hyatt. When Mercer mentions Lanie’s Lincoln giveaway at Parade of Champions 2, Missy informs him that she’ll buy Tatum one. Mercer brings up Sunshine to her, but Missy balks immediately. As Tatum takes him aside, he advises Mercer not to mess things up. Gee…I wonder what he has in trade for the car.

We revisit the 10/12 episode when Missy gave DJ Peterson a tongue-lashing. Afterward, Sunshine tries to get her hands on Missy but gets thwarted by Tatum and Hazzard.

Next, we head to Ft. Worth (taped 10/28) when Missy tried to nail Casey with her purse, but Casey restrained her. Before Sunshine could get her hands on Missy, Tatum blasts Casey from behind and held Sunshine. Nefariously, Missy rocked Sunshine’s world by a shot with the purse.

Match 3: The Dynamic Duo versus “Iceman” King Parsons & Brian Adias


Rating: ***½

Summary: The switcheroo may not have fooled either the Dallas faithful or Mercer, but they craftily snuck out a victory in an exciting match.

Match 4: The “Modern Day Warrior” Kerry Von Erich versus ???? (w/ Percy Pringle III)


Rating: **

Summary: Unfathomably, Link used psychology by working on Kerry’s leg. Since this was Link’s return match, the result was obvious because Link wasn’t going to job, and the fans needed to be sent home happy with a Kerry victory.

After the match, Kerry obliterates Link with a discus punch sending him flying down to the floor. He tries to manhandle Pringle who weasels out of the ring as if brisket was selling 2-for-1 at the concession stand.

POINT OF ORDER: As you may recall, Sportatorium tapings occurred on Friday nights. Also happening on Friday nights during the fall was high school football. Since Texas considered (and still does) football as a heavenly experience, many seats opposite the main camera were empty. Hopefully, this was only due to football and nothing more.

With this episode, WCCW cemented Pringle as the heel manager replacing Gary Hart. Pringle will have more nemeses for the Von Erichs, so there’s something to anticipate. The Dynamic Duo looks strong going into their cage match against the Von Erichs while Victory has returned as a formidable challenger to Adias.

Next week, Kerry battles One Man Gang. Where’s Lance?

TV Rating: NONE
