-Int. w/Bob Caudle: Ricky Steamboat, Wahoo McDaniel, Jack Brisco and Jimmy Valiant
The starts with Bob Caudle, presenting a gift on behalf of the wrestlers to Jimmy Valiant. It’s a new boom box. Valiant says for the first time in his life, he’s speechless. His Network edit music plays and Valiant dances off the screen.

Steamboat says he has a plan to neutralize Sir Oliver Humperdink in his future matches versus Leroy Brown. He didn’t elaborate. [Spoiler: handicap matches where Humperdink must wrestle.] Wahoo and Brisco talk about the rest of the House of Humperdink, that they are ready for them.


Match 1
Wahoo McDaniel & Jack Brisco d. Pvt. Kernodle & Ken Timbs
Stu Schwartz is the referee for the hour. Caudle notes how happy Valiant is to have a new boom box. He also reviews that first segment. Jerry Brisco is coming back to team with this brother. He also notes how Flair is sidestepping Wahoo. Brisco forces Timbs to submit to what was called an “Indian Death Lock,” but looked more like a conventional Figure Four.


Match 2
Mike Rotundo d. Ben Alexander
Before the match, Sir Oliver Humperdink jaws with Rotundo, trying to recruit him. Rotundo declined. Humperdink sticks around ringside anyway. He is encouraging pulling the hair or pulling the tights. Caudle wonders who he is trying to instruct. Humperdink tells Caudle it’s Rotundo. Using the airplane spin (maybe the first time?), Rotundo scores the pin. Humperdink jumps in the ring and attempts to shake Rotundo’s hand. Instead, Rotundo shoves him away and yells at him to leave.

-Int. w/Bob Caudle: Mike Davis & King Parsons
This is in lieu of local promos. Davis & Parsons talk about their upcoming tag match against LeDuc & Brown. Not much here.


Match 3
Jos LeDuc & Leroy Brown (w/Sir Oliver Humperdink) d. Mike Davis & King Parsons
Easy victory for the heels. LeDuc pins Davis after a one-arm backbreaker.


-Int. w/Bob Caudle: Sir Oliver Humperdink, Jos LeDuc and Leroy Brown
Humperdink warns Rotundo not to put his hands on him. He dumps on Valiant receiving a new radio. LeDuc joins in, saying this isn’t music city. If you want music city, go to New York. He wants the TV title. Brown is carrying a microphone stand. He yells and wants Steamboat.
Caudle introduces the next match via blue screen.


Match 4
Ricky Steamboat & Jay Youngblood d. Jim Dalton & Juan Reynosa
Well, at least it’s officially spelled Reynosa! Caudle talks about Steamboat vs. Brown. He alludes to Steamboat’s statements that Humperdink would somehow be “tied down.” More talk of Jimmy Valiant being gifted a radio. Updates on Flair vs. Wahoo and the return of Jerry Brisco. Dalton getting offense in on Youngblood. The finish sees Youngblood hold Reynosa as Steamboat dives off the top rope with the cross-body block.

-Int. w/Bob Caudle: Keith Larson & Pork Chop Cash
This is in lieu of local promos. Larson tries, but isn’t very interesting. Cash picks things up. Both talk about the House of Humperdink and the next match.


Match 5: Paul Jones & Greg Valentine (w/Sir Oliver Humperdink) d. Keith Larson & Pork Chop Cash
Caudle is still lamenting Jones’ heel turn, saying it was about the money. Little trouble for the House team. Valentine forces Larson to submit with the Figure Four.

-Int. w/Bob Caudle: Sir Oliver Humperdink, Paul Jones, and Greg Valentine
Humperdink complains there are too many Indians running around. Jones claims Valiant’s gift of a radio is payola. It’s illegal. Humperdink doesn’t need to pay his men off. Valentine offers threats to Wahoo to close the show.

“So long for now!”
