We skip the 11/06/82 show on the network. Too bad. The debuts of Rick Rood (losing to Paul Jones), Joe Lauren (aka Road Warrior Animal; teaming with Gene Anderson, and falling to the Brisco Brothers), plus Masa Fuchi (teaming with Ricky Harris) falling to Steamboat & Youngblood.

Match 1
Roddy Piper d. Frank Monte

This show starts right away with the match in progress. Stu Schwartz is the referee for the hour, and it doesn’t last long. Piper wins with a pin after a back suplex.

-Int. w/Bob Caudle: Sgt. Slaughter & Don Kernodle
Slaughter & Kernodle confront Piper, saying he’s not so tough when he doesn’t have a 3-on-1 advantage. Slaughter challenges Piper, and Piper responds that he has a partner. Slaughter says since Piper wears a skirt, his partner is probably Moolah or Tommy Rich. Piper calmly says his partner is Abdullah the Butcher and walks away. Slaughter’s face is a classic. His jaw literally drops.


-Int. w/Bob Caudle: Roddy Piper & Wahoo McDaniel
Piper wants Flair. We go back to the 10/17/82 Charlotte clip of Flair & Valentine beating on Piper and Wahoo. Piper makes “60 minute” jokes on Flair. Piper is back to his crazy interview style. Piper says he’s glad to team with Wahoo.

Wahoo talks about losing the U.S. championship to Greg Valentine. We go to a clip, of a match between the two from an unmentioned arena. A tough-looking match. The finish sees Sir Oliver Humperdink hand Valentine an object, while “The Hammer” is out on the apron. Wahoo back suplexed Valentine back in the ring. While in midair, Valentine nailed him in the head with the object and scored the pin. Same exact finish as Santana vs. Savage from 1986 WWF. If this was indeed the title change footage, that was 11/04/82 in Norfolk, VA.

Match 2
Wahoo McDaniel d. Masa Fuchi

Despite “Fuchi” on the tights, Caudle pronounces it “Fuji.” Next week, Dusty Rhodes and Dory Funk, Jr. Soon, Bruiser Brody! Fuchi gets some offense, but succumbs to the chop of Wahoo McDaniel for the pin.


Match 3
Jos LeDuc (w/Sir Oliver Humperdink) d. Ricky Rudd

That is indeed Rick Rood, aka Ravishing Rick Rude. But, going by “Rudd” here. Caudle says he has muscles on top of muscles. Caudle acknowledges LeDuc is the former TV champion, so I guess he was officially stripped on the 11/06/82 show. LeDuc wins with the one-arm backbreaker.

Match 4
Non-Title: U. S. Heavyweight Champion Greg Valentine (w/Sir Oliver Humperdink)
d. Ron Ritchie
First time I remember back-to-back matches. Caudle is on screen briefly as the bridge. It’s mostly Valentine. Ritchie gets a small flurry of chops. Valentine takes control with a jumping piledriver, back suplex, and elbow drop for the win.

-Int. w/Bob Caudle: Sir Oliver Humperdink
Sir Oliver says Bruiser Brody is headed in. That was brief. King Parsons says he and Gary Black have nothing to lose. Gary Black says he’s served in the Marine Corp and can’t wait to punch Slaughter in the face. Black looks like another enhancement wrestler, Bob Owens


Match 5 
Non-Title: Sgt. Slaughter & Don Kernodle [World Tag champs] 
d. King Parsons & Gary Black
All heel team in this one. Great double team moves. Slaughter forces Black to submit to the Cobra Clutch.


-Int. w/Bob Caudle: Sire Oliver Humperdink, Paul Jones, Greg Valentine, Leroy Brown and Jos LeDuc
We rejoin abruptly. Jones talks about the power of the House of Humperdink. Jones alludes to a future tournament for the TV championship. Valentine denies using brass knuckles in his defeat of Wahoo McDaniel. Humperdink talks more about the TV title tournament. He says LeDuc was stripped for attacking an NWA official, and now he’s not allowed to enter the tournament. Brown says not to worry.

Caudle introduces the next match via magic blue screen.


Match 6
Leroy Brown (w/Sir Oliver Humperdink) d. Mike Rotundo by DQ

Rotundo is still wearing a neck collar. Caudle alluded to footage of Bruiser Brody that Humperdink showed, which may explain the abrupt rejoin. Rotundo gets some mat work in, but when the two men are standing, Brown has the advantage. He’s about to piledrive Rotundo, but Jack Brisco makes the save, but causes the DQ.

-Int w/Bob Caudle: Mike Rotundo
This is in lieu of local promos. Rotundo is very fired up, and wants Brown again next week.


-Int w/Bob Caudle: Mike Rotundo
Rotundo gives the same interview, I guess for the portion of the audience that didn’t get the prior interview.

Match 7
Jack Brisco & Jerry Brisco & Jimmy Valiant d. Ken Timbs & Pvt. Nelson & Gene Anderson

This match lasts less than 30 seconds. Jerry forces Timbs to submit to the Figure Four.

-Int. w/Bob Caudle: Jack Brisco & Jerry Brisco
Brief interview from the Briscos, mentioning the upcoming TV title tournament (but, no date or location).

As the credits start to roll, Caudle says “so long for now!”
