Taped from Dallas, TX
Airdate: November 27, 1982 (taped 11/19)
Hosted by Bill Mercer & Jay Saldi
Can David provide some revenge against Kabuki for the bounty hit? Who’s next on the ladder for Kerry to climb back to World title contender? And who makes her triumphant return to help me?
Supposedly, beginning with this taping, WCCW recorded on alternate Friday nights instead of Tuesdays. The difference in crowd size was immediately evident compared to last week.
Match 1: The “Modern Day Warrior” Kerry Von Erich versus “Captain” Frank Dusek
Summary: Showcase match for Kerry.
After the match, Mercer interviews Kerry at ringside. Kerry’s ready to hit Flair with his discus punch.
Match 2: “Wild” Bill Irwin versus Bugsy McGraw
Summary: Despite the hot crowd chanting for McGraw and against Irwin, the dreaded fight on the apron disallowed any chance for a winner. Linda, wouldn’t you agree the show hasn’t gotten off to a fast start?
At the ranch, Mercer interviews David with his mare Sissy. David’s ready to get revenge against Kabuki for his actions against Kerry. Afterward, Mercer interviews Hart who states that Flair gave him a check to buy him a “Cadillac station wagon” which, according to Hart, was only available in Texas. Likely story!
Match 3: Al Madril versus “Killer” Tim Brooks
Summary: Absolute boring waste of time. Avoid at all costs. Somehow, I get the feeling that Madril doesn’t like to do jobs. Care to spice things up a bit, Linda?
Wow! That’s provocative, Linda.
Match 4 (non-title): NWA Texas champion David Von Erich versus the Great Kabuki (w/ Arman Hussein)
Summary: Since this is a war that needs to be fought between Kerry and Kabuki, the lack of a decisive victory maintains the saga.
After the match, Dragon and Kabuki double-team David until Kerry hits the ring and tosses Dragon from the ring. Before Kerry can get his hands on him, Kabuki heads for higher ground.
At the broadcast table, Mercer and Saldi interview David with Kerry. A vehement David vows to make Kabuki bleed. Great emotion from David here.
Conclusion: The Kabuki-David match was the sole highlight of the show while the comeback for Kerry continues. What’s your take on the episode, Linda?
Thanks for coming back, Linda. Care to leave a lasting image?
TV Rating: NONE
