Quality: EX (Master Convert)

Length: 2 hrs (DVD)

HOUSTON MID-SOUTH VOL 1 (First in a big batch of discs covering Houston Wrestling beginning in mid-1985. These feature regular Mid-South TV matches intermixed with arena matches from Houston. Great stuff here. All Houston match dates are actual dates - the rest are Mid-South TV matches and are air dates. I've got a master convert so VQ is EX.)
Ric Flair vs Magnum TA, Houston, 6/28/85 (Last 2 min - has some video problems - after match, Wahoo McDaniel comes in and attacks Flair, setting up a title match for 7/12/85) Fantastics vs Tom Prichard & Pat Rose, 6/27/85 Kamala & Kareem Muhammed vs Jason Walker & Frankie Lane, 6/27/85 Kamala vs Hacksaw Duggan, Houston, 6/16/85 (big brawl after the match) Dick Murdoch vs Randy Beason, 6/27/85 Buddy Roberts vs Terry Daniels, 6/27/85 (Michael Hayes comes into the ring to a HUGE face pop, leaps over the top rope - and falls down, LOL.
