TAPE 1271

Quality: EX (Master Convert)

Length: 101 min (DVD)

UWF TV - 9/12/87 (More of the JCP-era UWF. This one's not particularly great, though the Arn vs Armstrong match is good. I've got a master convert so VQ is EX.)
Freebirds saving Rock & Roll Expres from Devastation Inc, UWF TV, 9/5/87 Pez Whatley vs Tim Patterson Eddie Gilbert & Terry Taylor vs Harry Zane & Billy Anderson Arn Anderson vs Brad Armstrong (Taylor & Gilbert come out to do color commentary for this match and end up dropping Armstrong throat-first on the guardrail to get Arn the win) Eddie Gilbert video "Hot Stuff" Steve Williams Challenging Black Bart Interview w/Four Horsemen Ric Flair vs Ronnie Garvin, NWA Pro, 8/15/87 (Impromptu brawl - great stuff) Tim Horner vs The Terminator (Tons of run-ins and a huge standoff end this one) Steve Williams Video "We Are the Champions"
UWF TV - 9/19/87 (More of the JCP-era UWF. This one is the first of the "newsdesk" or "magazine"-style shows that the UWF would run. I've got a master convert so VQ is EX.)
Black Bart vs Ron Ellis (JIP) Ivan Koloff vs Tommy Angel (JIP - this and the above match are shown to highlight guys that are challengers to Steve Williams' UWF title. OK, Bart I get. But Uncle Ivan?) Dusty Rhodes vs Lex Luger, NWA Worldwide, 8/8/87 (JIP - Dusty appears to win the US title but ends up DQ'ed because he threw Luger over the top rope) Dusty Rhodes attacking Lex Luger in the dressing room, NWA Worldwide, 8/8/87 (Right after the above match, Dusty shows his toughness by jumping Luger from behind and putting him out with the Weaverlock. Interesting that there's no heels in the dressing room other than JJ and he just pleads with Dusty "come on, he's had enough!") Dusty Rhodes vs Gladiator #1, NWA Pro, 8/22/87 Terry Taylor vs Shane Douglas, 9/2/87 (JIP - Taylor wins the UWF TV title) Ric Flair vs Ronnie Garvin, NWA Pro, 8/15/87 (The very end of the impromptu brawl) Ric Flair interfering in Garvins vs Midnight Express, NWA Pro, 8/22/87 Missy Hyatt interviewing Terry Taylor & Eddie Gilbert Brad Armstrong & Tim Horner vs Pez Whatley & Tiger Conway Jr (Whatley breaks a cane over Armstrong to score the non-title pinfall) Rock & Roll Express vs Ricky Nelson & Gary Royal Midnight Express vs Rocky King & David Isley (JIP) Ronnie Garvin Training Video, NWA Pro, 9/19/87
