WCCW 12-21-85

Taped from Dallas, TX

Airdate: December 21, 1985 (taped 12/13)

Attendance: unknown

Hosted by Bill Mercer

Can Casey and Parsons topple Kabuki and Link? How will Adias and Youngblood fare against the Dynamic Duo? Who are the new kids in town and what do they want?

Calm down, that’s in the late 90s. Hopefully we get some delicious Christmas appetizers.

Opening montage.

Holy schnikes! The stands behind the ring were sparsely populated. Why? Although the average temperature in Dallas in mid-December hovered in the upper 50s, the temperature at showtime was 25° with a wind gust of 14 mph. Ain’t no smart Texan gonna venture out in that!

Match 1 (non-title): NWA Texas champion The Grappler versus Tommy Montana


Rating: *

Summary: Showcase match for the new Texas champion.

We head to Ft. Worth where the Freebirds returned to assault the Von Erichs. Devastation included Hayes tossing Kevin into the orchestra pit, a Bam Bam Slam by Gordy to Kerry, and a swift left hand from Hayes to an unassuming Adias.

The Freebirds cut a backstage promo on the Von Erichs and seek to regain the World Six-Man tag team titles. Roberts screams “the ‘Birds are back!” As a matter of fact, they’ll face the Von Erichs in a lights-out match on Christmas Night.

Match 2 (non-title): NWA American tag team champions The Dynamic Duo versus Brian Adias & Mark Youngblood


Rating: **½

Summary: Showcase match for the Dynamic Duo despite Adias’ strong efforts.

Prior to the main event, we revisit the Texas Death match from Thanksgiving when Kabuki destroyed Casey after disposing of Sunshine. Afterward, Mercer interviews Casey with Sunshine. Casey cuts a promo on Kabuki while Sunshine runs down Missy Hyatt. At the spectacular, Casey and Sunshine will encounter “Hollywood” John Tatum and Missy in a mixed tag match.

Match 3: Kabuki & Missing Link (w/ Percy Pringle) versus Scott Casey & “Iceman” King Parsons (w/ Sunshine)


Rating: *

Summary: Mere appetizer for the Christmas spectacular, but what happens next?

Kabuki clobbers Parsons on the back of the neck, so Sunshine jumps into the ring to confront him. Astonishingly, Kabuki throws her down to the mat not responding to anything she says or does.

Link begins to headbutt everyone yet, surprisingly, begins with Kabuki. After he grabs Pringle, Link headbutts him to a wild reaction. Upon striking Kabuki again, Link exits the ring and picks up Sunshine. Casey tries to intervene but gets headbutted for his troubles. In perhaps a Beauty and the Beast moment, he whisks her back to the locker room. Who knows what happens there?

Conclusion: The main event angle has fascinating timing right before the big Christmas show. Undoubtedly, the tag match involving the Dynamic Duo was the beef of the episode sandwich, and it was quite entertaining. Unless you want to see the very beginning of what appears to be a Link face turn, I’d wait until next week’s show to tune in.

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

TV Rating: NONE
