Match 1
Dory Funk, Jr. d. Mike Davis; 
The show starts with action already in the ring. Tommy Young is the referee for the hour. Caudle says this is a special match, a $100,000 challenge match. An inset shows Caudle holding up the check, written out to Davis, if he should win. Davis has to pin Funk within a 10-minute time limit. Funk is using mostly forearms. He wins with the spinning toe-hold.


-Int. w/Bob Caudle: Jimmy Valiant
Jimmy says there’s no more music. No more TV title. And more Jimmy Valiant raving. He’s wearing a KISS jacket.

Match 2
Jimmy Valiant d. Jim Dalton
Short match. Valiant wins wit the elbow. No explanation of the TV title situation.


Match 3
Jay Youngblood d. Pvt. Nelson
Caudle explains that Kernodle was here, but received a telegram from Sgt. Slaughter to meet him in
Japan, and abruptly left.
What, his text messaging wasn’t working? Youngblood fights out of a Cobra Clutch and eventually wins with a chop.

-Int. w/Bob Caudle: Keith Larson
This was in lieu of local promos. Larson gives his thoughts on his upcoming match vs. Greg Valentine.


Match 4
Greg Valentine (w/Sir Oliver Humperdink) d. Keith Larson
Caudle is surprised that Valentine is actually breaking clean. Not much from Larson. Valentine wins with the Figure Four.


-Int. w/Bob Caudle: Wahoo McDaniel and Jimmy Valiant
Valiant is ranting again. He is holding a part of his broken radio that was gifted to him last week. We go to a clip of Valiant vs. LeDuc for the TV title from 9/19/82 in Charlotte (although the date and location aren’t mentioned). Valiant is narrating. Valiant has LeDuc on the sleeper. In the meantime, Humperdink is on the apron, holding the radio. Schwartz argues with Humperdink. Valiant lets go to go after Humperdink and Schwartz gets knocked down, breaking the radio. LeDuc picks up the radio and whacks Valiant with the rest of the radio and scored the pin. LeDuc then destroys the rest of the radio. Valiant says he can’t bear to watch it no more.
As Valiant leaves, McDaniel tries to explain how Jimmy is feeling. He says it would be the same if he was without his golf clubs or headdress. We go to a clip from a few months ago, where Slaughter destroyed Wahoo’s headdress. He doesn’t know what Slaughter has been up to the last four weeks (since his suspension). But, Wahoo is ready.


Match 5
Mike Rotundo d. Ali Bey
Rotundo takes the match with the airplane then a pin
-Int. w/Bob Caudle: Ken Timbs & Bill White
This was in lieu of local promos. Timbs & White talked about their upcoming TV match.


Match 6
Wahoo McDaniel & Jack Brisco d. Ken Timbs & Bill White
The best part was Wahoo and White getting into a chop fest. Wahoo got the better of it. A longer match than expected, with Wahoo & Brisco winning with McDaniel delivering a vertical suplex to White.

-Int. w/Bob Caudle: Sir Oliver Humperdink, Paul Jones, Jos LeDuc and Leroy Brown
Jones is upset the fans are chanting “zero” instead of #1. Jones says they fight together. Leroy Brown, wearing a “I Am #1” hat says he still wants Steamboat. LeDuc comes out, and Humperdink presents him a new TV title belt. Humperdink shows the clip of LeDuc pinning Valiant to win the title.
LeDuc is carrying the remnants of the radio. LeDuc says the belt has two kilos of gold. It is shiny.

“So long for now!”
