Can Lance get the better of Hernandez in his Sportatorium debut? How will Adias and Mantell fare against Rude and Link? What happens when Victory faces Peterson? Get comfortable and enjoy some Texas ‘rasslin’!

Opening montage.

Match 1: Mark Youngblood versus Tommy Montana


Rating: **

Summary: Preliminary match anywhere in the state of Texas, but I’m hungry for steak now.

Match 2: The “Heartthrob of New Jersey” Jack Victory (w/o Gary Hart) versus David Peterson


Rating: **

Summary: Another preliminary bout with the female contingent salivating over Peterson instead of the rather vociferous Victory.

Missing is a video allegedly about the Missing Link played to the tune of Quiet Riot’s “Bang Your Head (Metal Health).” Don’t gripe at me, ‘cuz it’s WWE Network’s issue.

Match 3: “Ravishing” Rick Rude & the Missing Link (w/ Percy Pringle III) versus Johnny Mantell & Brian Adias


Rating: **

Summary: With Mantell involved, the finish was telegraphed from several miles away.

Match 4: Lance Von Erich versus the “Handsome Half-Breed” Gino Hernandez


Rating: *

Summary: I understand that removing the mask to humiliate Hernandez was the goal here, but between Lance’s inexperience and the lack of chemistry with Hernandez, this wasn’t a good match whatsoever.

Conclusion: In addition to Lance’s victory, Rude and Link looked strong against Adias and Mantell. Peterson and Victory offered a solid lower card match while Youngblood showed off his skills. It’s a solid but unspectacular episode, so I’d tread lightly unless you’re dying to see Lance.

Next week, action from the Thanksgiving show including Rude versus “Iceman” King Parsons for the American title. Prepare for a feast!

TV Rating: NONE
