NWA WORLDWIDE - 3/16/85 (More from the awesome 1985 season of Worldwide. Quality on this VG/EX, super-nice.)
Nikita Koloff & Khrusher Khruschev vs Joel Deaton & Frank Lane Arn Anderson vs Gene Ligon Great Kabuki & Barbarian vs Denny Brown & Sam Houston (Jimmy Valiant & Buzz Tyler come out and pay off Brown/Houston to go away, so we get...) Great Kabuki & Barbarian vs Jimmy Valiant & Buzz Tyler (Paul Jones attacks Valiant with his cane, so Valiant walks out of the match and returns with an axe handle!) Arn Anderson attacking Manny Fernandez, MACW, 3/85 Manny Fernandez vs Doug Vines Manny Fernandez/Arn Anderson Brawl Don Kernodle Introducing Keith Larson as Rocky Kernodle (This is a really awkward promo with Larson clearly a deer in the headlights here. It's also painfully obvious they aren't actually brothers.) Magnum TA vs Golden Terror & Red Demon Tully Blanchard vs Steve Casey (Weird finish - Casey get's DQ'ed for tossing Tully over the top but then they restart the match, as if the ref blew it by calling for the DQ. Casey then gets tossed to the outside and Dusty Rhodes runs in.) Ric Flair & Magnum TA vs Wahoo McDaniel & Tully Blanchard, 3/9/85 (Finish only - from a tag team battle royal. Yes, Flair & Magnum teaming together. There are some video issues at the start of this.)
NWA WORLDWIDE - 3/23/85 (More of the same as above, quality is VG/EX)
Pez Whatley vs John Tatum (Pretty good match, actually) Interview w/Tully Blanchard Re: Losing NWA TV title (He makes no excuses whatsoever for losing and then challenges Dusty to a barbed wire match. I love that about Tully - he'd give guys credit for beating him.) Arn Anderson vs Steve Casey Interview w/Tully & Wahoo (they ask for a cage match with Flair & Dusty and Wahoo has the NWA world title belt) Dusty Rhodes vs Tully Blanchard, 3/16/85 (Finish Only - Dusty wins NWA World TV title; after the match, Tully & Wahoo attack Dusty and RIC FLAIR runs in to try and save. Of course, this is Flair, so he gets his ass kicked.) Russians announces as World tag champs (they also announce that any 2 of the 3 can defend) Ivan & Nikita Koloff vs Sam Houston & Gene Ligon Jimmy Valiant injuring Paul Jones, w/axe handle, 3/16/85 (he's saving Dick Slater from a triple team) Magnum TA & Manny Fernandez vs Rock & Roll RPMs Interview w/Ric Flair & Dusty Rhodes, 3/16/85 (more on the cage match with Tully & Wahoo) Jimmy Valiant vs Superstar Graham (Barbarian & Kabuki run in; what, you couldn't guess that would happen?)
