  1. Tommy & Eddie Gilbert get a DQ victory over The New Wave (w/ Jimmy Hart) when Koko Ware smashes Eddie Gilbert with a wooden chair at ringside. ★

A hot opener that got the crowd on their feet with wild brawling antics. Jimmy Hart’s new team gets a loss but they didn’t seem to care.

  1. Dennis Condrey used the atomic drop to beat Ric McCord in their Grudge Match. ★★★★

Not so sure anything was settled during this encounter between these two, but Dennis Condrey got the upper hand here.

  1. Austin Idol beat Jackie Fargo in two straight falls in a wild 2 out of 3 Falls Match. ★★★★★

Order of Falls:
– Austin Idol beat Jackie Fargo with a clothesline.
– Austin Idol catches Jackie Fargo with a surprise roll up to win ★★★★★

This was a marathon of a match. The fans went bananas as Idol outsmarted Fargo two falls to none! This victory has, no doubt, put Idol on line for a title shot.

  1. Sputnik Monroe surprised Handsome Jimmy Valiant with a NECKBREAKER to win their Loser Leaves Town Match and send Jimmy Valiant out of the territory for a year! Valiant dominated the match but couldn’t put Monroe away. Monroe hit his finisher out of nowhere for the win. ★★★★★

Fans were not happy that the ever popular Valiant is now gone!

  1. In the Main Event, Tommy Rich used the THESZ PRESS to retain the Southern Heavyweight Championship on an incredibly competitive match with Ricky Morton. ★★★★
