-Int. w/Bob Caudle: Jack Brisco, Ricky Steamboat and Jay Youngblood
Brisco is on crutches. He says Paul Jones and Greg Valentine jumped him the parking lot. He says his leg is sore, but not broken. He issues a challenge to Jones to face him for the Mid-Atlantic Heavyweight championship on TV next week. Steamboat talks about Leroy Brown, then announces Slaughter lost the U.S. Heavyweight championship to Wahoo and is now serving a 30-day suspension. Youngblood is hot at Humperdink, saying he is responsible for both Wahoo and Jimmy Valiant receiving haircuts.


Match 1:
Jay Youngblood d. Pvt. Jim Nelson
Tommy Young is the referee for the hour. Semi-even match. Nelson whips Youngblood into the corner. Youngblood catapults himself over and onto the apron. He comes back in with a sunset flip for the pin.


Match 2:
Greg Valentine & Leroy Brown (w/Sir Oliver Humperdink) d. Ron Ritchie & Keith Larson
Valentine has a white robe with red trim. Who had better robes, Valentine or Flair? Anyway, Valentine is a new member of the House of Humerdink. Caudle talks about the House’s membership. Humperdink chimes in on the mic. Heels are dominant. Brown looks incredible with his power moves. Valentine finished off Larson with the bionic elbow.

-Int. w/Bob Caudle: Pork Chop Cash & King Parsons
This is in lieu of local promos. Audio is kind of low mainly because Cash keeps turning his head away from the mic. Typically generic stuff. Babyfaces are good, heels are bad.


Match 3
Paul Jones (w/Sir Oliver Humperdink) d. King Parsons
Parsons dominates with bodyslams and dropkicks, frustrating Jones. But Parsons tries one dropkick too many, and Jones slaps on the Indian Death Lock for the submission.


-Int. w/Bob Caudle: Wahoo McDaniel
McDaniel says when Slaughter had to wrestle by the rules, he lost. Hair will grow back. We go to a clip of the end of the Indian strap match 8/22/82 from Charlotte, title vs. hair. Wahoo touches the fourth turnbuckle for the win. But, Slaughter attacks Wahoo, ties him up with the strap. Leroy Brown and Oliver Humperdink join in to cut Wahoo’s hair. Ron Ritchie tries to make the save to no avail. Jimmy Valiant tries the save and gets some of his hair cut.
Back to Wahoo. He says they don’t like it, but he is the champion. Wahoo eyes Jos LeDus in the ring. He says if Valentine wants the title, come get it.

Caudle, wearing the Augusta green jacket, introduces the next match via blue screen.


Match 4
Jos LeDuc (w/Sir Oliver Humperdink) d. Mike Davis
The chyron misspells Jos LeDuc's name "Joe LeDuke"
An easy win for LeDuc with the legdrop. Humpedink joined in on the commentary. Said he’s not from Montreal, he’s from the woods way north.

-Int. w/Bob Caudle: Jos LeDuc and Oliver Humperdink
This is in lieu of local promos. Humperdink is not wearing a suit and tie, but a Hawaiian shirt. LeDuc says no one will hurt Humperdink. He doesn’t care about titles, he wants to prove he is the better man. He’s known as the Canadian Freight Train.


Match 5
Roddy Piper & Rick Steamboat d. The Ninja & Juan Reynoso
Piper and Steamboat seem a little slow in who will start the match. Piper is very aggressive. Caudle notes that the only thing changed about Piper is his partners. Piper no-sells Reynoso’s punches and unloads on him. Caudle constantly calls Piper “wild.” A few minutes later, Ninja takes advantage on Piper, but he eventually makes the tag to Steamboat. The match ends with a Steamboat top-rope flying bodypress on Reynoso.

-Int. w/ Bob Caudle: Paul Jones & Greg Valentine & Humperdink & LeDuc
Jones officially accepts Brisco’s challenge. “I’ve got the coward out of the closet.” Valentine says he’s gunning for McDaniel. He references the broken leg. LeDuc says he remembers Valiant from Memphis, 1978. He will let Valiant get to Humperdink “over my dead body.”

"So long for now."
