Bob Caudle opens the show previewing the men on the show, including Jack Brisco.

—Int. w/Bob Caudle: Roddy Piper
The mention of Brisco brings Piper out. He talks trash on Brisco, and Caudle goes to the video from Piper attacking Brisco during the Brisco vs. Muraco match from last week. “How efficient,” Piper mocks as they go to the tape.

Coming back, the camera focuses on the back of Piper’s shirt “Pay the Piper.” The front says “Piper Pays Back.” Another classic Piper rant. “Of course I’m nuts … I ain’t going to live to be 30. I’m not all there.” Piper makes the challenge in either a tag or single match.


Match 1:
"King Kong" Angelo Mosca d. King Parsons
Stu Schwartz is the referee for the hour. Caudle notes the one-month trial period of “must be a winner” rules is over. He encourages fans to send in comments on what they think of the rules. Even match, with Mosca using his bullying style. The finish sees Parsons have Mosca in the corner. The referee breaks it up. Mosca, out of the corner nails Parsons with the elbow to the head and gets the pin.


Match 2:
Non-Title Match: Jack Brisco [Mid-Atlantic Champion] d. Juan Reynoso
Reynoso immediately goes for Brisco’s left knee, which is bandaged up. At one point, Brisco and Reynoso slug at each other toe-to-toe. Brisco misses a dropkick, and Reynoso has a brief advantage. Brisco takes over and finishes Reynoso with the figure-four.


Match 3:
Ivan Koloff & Ninja d. Ron Ritchie & Rusty Roberts
A mystery manager is in Koloff & Ninja’s corner. He wanders by Caudle and formally introduces himself, Sir Oliver Humperdink. He says he is the greatest manager, and warns the babyfaces of Mid-Atlantic, including Jack Brisco. Humperdink is wearing a suit, tie and shades. Caudle wonders why Koloff & Ninja even need a manager. Heels control most of the match. Ritchie tags in and gets a good house of fire run. Koloff cuts him off with a knee to the gut and tosses him in the corner to tag in Roberts. Less than a minute later, Ninja comes of the top with a headbutt on Roberts and gets the pin.


-Int. w/Bob Caudle: Wahoo McDaniel and Jack Brisco
Wahoo is in a pink Izod shirt. He is back from an injury. But, if he has to hurt people, he will. We go to a tape of Flair vs. Brisco. This appears to be 5/23/82 from Greensboro. Not much in the clip, but Brisco chases Flair from an intentional DQ, with Flair bloodied. We now go to a Flair vs. Wahoo clip from Championship Wrestling from Florida in the Tampa studio. Tommy Young is the referee. Just a minute or less of action. Wahoo says he was in the hospital, and didn’t realize an NWA official took his U.S. title back and gave it to Slaughter. Wahoo and Brisco agree keeping your health is important.


Match 4:
David Patterson d. Keith Larson
Caudle says they hope to have Flair on the program soon. Also coming back, Greg Valentine. Another reminder that the 30-day must-be-a-winner rule ended June 16. The NWA board is taking comments from the fans and wrestlers. The match is relatively even until Larson misses a cross bodyblock off the top rope. Patterson follows with a knee to the head for the pin.

-Int. w/Bob Caudle: The Privates and The Monk
This is in lieu of local promos. Caudle asks the trio about their upcoming TV main event. The Monk speaks and speaks perfect English! Kernodle says Sgt. Slaughter is relaxing with his new U.S. championship in Hawai’i. He wants the Mid-Atlantic tag team championship back, and calls Cash & Parsons “boys” three times. Yes, that is racial. Nelson contributes with some smack talk. Now Kernodle is calling Wahoo a “boy.”


Match 5:
Jay Youngblood & Paul Jones & Jake Roberts d. Pvt. Kernodle & Pvt. Nelson & The Monk
A good, action-packed match. Youngblood spends a majority of the match as the babyface in peril. He finally makes the tag, and the babyfaces tag in and out quickly to finish off Monk. Youngblood gets the pin after the tomahawk chop and an elbow.

-Int. w/Bob Caudle: Jay Youngblood & Paul Jones & Jake Roberts
All three guys are blown up. Jones offers praise for his partners. Youngblood mentions he has been in Japan for the last month (true). A warning to the area’s heels. He warns them that they are surrounded by nothing but Indians, himself, The Briscos and Wahoo. Roberts is glad to be back following an eye injury.

So long for now!
