Opening montage.

Match 1: One Man Gang versus Kamala (w/ General Skandor Akbar)


Rating: DUD

Summary: Not sure if there was more crap in the plumbing at Reunion Arena after Thanksgiving dinner or in this match, but it’s close.

After this lost cause, Gang grabs his chain and chases Kamala back to the locker room.

OK, that was bad, but stick with me please.

Match 2 for the NWA Texas title: Brian Adias (champion) versus the “Heartthrob of New Jersey” Jack Victory


Rating: **½

Summary: Good callback to their Cotton Bowl match with the step-over toe hold, but how long can Adias hold back the challenge of the Grappler?

Lt. Colonel Slade, how’s this show feel to you?

Match 3 (Texas death match): Scott Casey (w/ Sunshine) versus “Hollywood” John Tatum (w/ Missy Hyatt)


Rating: ***

Summary: The men battled, the women played their roles perfectly, and a decent story was told.

After the match, Sunshine tosses Missy down to the mat, and a CATFIGHT erupts. The fur flies, and a wardrobe malfunction by Sunshine gets safeguarded from innocent eyes.

As Kabuki enters the ring, he annihilates both Tatum and Casey before Sunshine tries but fails. Sunshine escapes Kabuki’s grasp and stumbles out of the cage as Kabuki and Casey are left inside.

Casey feeds Kabuki an atomic drop, but Kabuki no-sells it and blasts him. When he deals Casey a thrust kick, Kabuki decimates Hazzard. Kabuki rams him into the cage, and Casey is BUSTED OPEN. In street clothes, Johnny Mantell comes to Casey’s rescue, but Kabuki eliminates him.

David Peterson and Adias arrive to handle Kabuki, but Casey collects himself to brawl further with Kabuki. After nailing Casey once more, Kabuki gets restrained and removed from the cage.

Match 4 for the vacant NWA American tag team titles (Texas tornado, cage): Kerry & Kevin Von Erich versus the Dynamic Duo


Rating: ***½

Summary: While the Von Erichs won the battle of mask removal, they lost the war of the tag team titles thanks to chicanery by Hernandez.

After the match, Lance approaches ringside and keeps Adams at bay on the concrete floor. Meanwhile, Kerry and Kevin surround Hernandez and remove his mask thanks to a dropkick by Kevin. Hernandez also has a well-kept crew cut; however, the Dynamic Duo flees with their belts.

Before the show leaves the air, Mercer notes that the match between Tatum/Hyatt and Casey/Sunshine at the Christmas spectacular will be a mixed tag match.

Conclusion: The main event truly epitomized what’s great about WCCW. Although the heroes didn’t prevail in the end, they got a bit of revenge on the Dynamic Duo. In addition, a cage match with a catfight sprinkled on top was tremendously entertaining but leaving the fans wanting more. Adias retained his title while bringing Victory up to his level despite Gang and Kamala stinking up the arena. Get all this!

Next week, “Ravishing” Rick Rude defends the American title against Kerry!

TV Rating: NONE
