TAPE 965

Quality: EX (Master Convert)

Length: 42 min (DVD)

NWA CENTRAL STATES TV - 8/9/86 (VERY rare show from Kansas City featuring a rare Dusty Rhodes NWA title defense. I've got a master convert so VQ is EX.)
Dave Peterson vs JR Hogg, 8/7/86 (Kansas City was notable for the INCREDIBLY small ring used and it comes into play here. Hogg gives Peterson a normal backdrop and Peterson ends up half out of the ring, very nearly getting badly injured in the process.) Sgt. Slaughter vs Steve King, WWF, 3/4/81 or 6/21/83 (They hype incoming babyface Sgt. Slaughter by showing a match from the WWF with Slaughter as a heel. WTF?) Earthquake Ferris vs Rufus R Jones, 8/7/86 ($10000 bounty match - Jones is the lead KC babyface and Butch Reed has put a bounty on him that Ferris fails to collect. So Reed comes in and beats up Jones and gets fined *$500* for it.) Butch Reed vs TC Carter, 8/7/86 Interview w/Butch Reed, 8/7/86 (In the Ferris/Jones match, Flame is introduced as the new manager of Butch Reed, having bought his contract from Slick. Here, however, Reed denies Flame is his manager.) Ric Flair vs Dusty Rhodes, 8/7/86 (JIP - Dusty is DEFENDING the NWA World title here. Good match that Rhodes wins by DQ. Afterward, Flair destroys Dusty with a chair and then does some ranting on the house mic.)
