TAPE 593

Quality: EX (*MASTER*)

Length: 1.5 hrs (DVD)

UWF TV - 7/26/86 (First volume from the Universalwrestling archives that, as of this writing, hasn't even been officially released yet. You get 2 full episodes of UWF TV here. What makes this REALLY unique is that the first episode is RAW footage, so you get all the between-segment commentary from Jim Ross, the post-production stuff hasn't been done, etc. Very cool to see stuff like that. I've got a DVD master so VQ is EX.)
Michael Hayes giving Jim Ross a "Badstreet" t-shirt Koko B. Ware vs The Libyan One Man Gang vs Gary Young Michael Hayes kissing Dark Journey and getting slapped (to see the difference post- production makes, watch this segment, then watch the version on the next episode and compare the audio) Eddie Gilbert pays off Jack Victory to get his match leading to... Eddie Gilbert vs Brett Sawyer (Sawyer takes a brutal "Hot Shot" and scores the upset) Fantastics vs Joe Malcolm & Gustavo Mendoza Freebirds vs Bill Watts, Jim Duggan & Terry Taylor (Elimination tag - Here you benefit from the "raw" footage; TV time runs out, as always, only now you actually get the whole match as they run the last several minutes without commentary. Very cool.)
UWF TV - 8/2/86 (First volume from the Universalwrestling archives that, as of this writing, hasn't even been officially released yet. You get 2 full episodes of UWF TV here. What makes this REALLY unique is that the first episode is RAW footage, so you get all the between-segment commentary from Jim Ross, the post-production stuff hasn't been done, etc. Very cool to see stuff like that.

Jeff Gaylord vs Joe Malcolm Clip of Freebirds piledriving Steve Williams, 6/29/86 Brett Sawyer vs John Tatum Fantastics vs Sting & Eddie Gilbert (Sting & Gilbert win UWF tag titles) "Boys Are Back In Town" Freebirds video (they're rerunning the video "due to popular demand", only this time they intercut it with not-so-flattering video of the 'birds) Rick Steiner vs Ken Massey Kamala vs Koko B. Ware (TV time runs out)
