TAPE 767

Quality: EX (*MASTER*)

Length: 1.4 hrs (DVD)

PHILLY SPECTRUM - 8/4/84 (Decent show from my favorite era of the WWF. This is the 24/7 version of the show so it's not the complete original broadcast but all the key parts are here. I've got a master, so VQ is EX but audio is a little low.)
Bob Backlund vs Sal Bellomo (Rare face vs face match. Backlund did a bunch of these in his last months in the WWF. Here, he lets Bellomo look good - too good, actually - before going over clean with a "surprise" pinfall.) Gamma Singh vs Dave Barbie Mr. Fuji vs Tiger Chung Lee (Fuji & Lee had a house show feud going after their tag team split in matches all over the country. It didn't last long, as evidenced by this match as Fuji goes over clean, in convincing fashion.) Andre the Giant vs Big John Studd (The key moment here is during one of Studd's many trips to the outside: a little kid runs up the railing and you can clearly see him say "you fucking suck" at Studd. The kid can't be more than about 8 years old.) Freebirds vs Ron Shaw, Charlie Fulton, & Rene Goulet (Rare match for the Freebirds in the WWF. Cyndi Lauper makes an appearance, too, just two weeks after the big live MTV special from MSG with her & Wendy Richter.) Haiti Kid vs Danny Carpenter Hulk Hogan vs Greg Valentine (Unusual match in that Valentine never applies the figure-four)
