TAPE 827

Quality: VG/EX

Length: 2 hrs (DVD)

NWA WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP WRESTLING - 4/27/85 (For some reason, 24/7 skipped over this show when rebroadcasting eps of WCW from 1985. However, I've tracked down a complete copy of the show, albeit in VG/EX instead of DVD master quality. Fun stuff anyway.)
Ole & Arn Anderson vs Italian Stallion & Gerald Finley Interview w/Dusty Rhodes & Betty Lou the Cage (and so begins a multi-week series of Rhodes interviews that just baffle the mind with their stupidity) Manny Fernandez vs Doug Vines Interview w/Ric Flair (For perhaps the first time ever, Flair refers to the Andersons as his cousins, laying the groundwork for the cage attack on Dusty 5 months later and the formation of the Four Horsemen. Don't know if he'd ever called Ole & Gene his cousins or not...) Bob Roop vs Golden Terror Tully Blanchard vs Lee Ramsey Ron Garvin vs George South Magnum TA vs Scott Irwin (Decent enough match for the US title - I always liked Irwin as a kid; I still remember being shocked when he got cancer and lost his hair) Ivan & Nikita Koloff vs Mike Jackson & Paul Garner Thunderbolt Patterson vs Randy Barber (The Andersons attack Patterson, who then is saved by Manny Fernandez) Pez Whatley vs Vernon Deaton Interview w/Jimmy Valiant (Valiant uses a chalkboard to talk because of a throat injury from a recent attack, which is shown here) Ron Bass vs Rocky King Abdullah the Butcher, Superstar Graham & Barbarian vs Gene Ligon, Mike Simani & Ron Rossi
