MID-SOUTH TV - 1/18/86 (Little-seen early '86 episode of Mid-South TV. This is actually pulled from the 48-disc Houston set. Quality is VG/EX.)
Dick Slater vs Jake Roberts, 1/1/86 (TV Title Finals - Roberts win Mid-South TV title) Buzz Sawyer vs Steve Doll (Sawyer continues to pound Doll after the bell, getting himself DQ'ed. Butch Reed makes the save but gets jumped by Dick Murdoch, who brainbusters him on the concrete.) Eddie Gilbert vs Tommy Wright Terry Taylor vs Humongous (When he debuted, Humongous squashed Dick Murdoch in like 2 minutes. 6 months later, he's jobbing to Terry Taylor. Odd.) Ricky Gibson, Brett Sawyer & Al Perez vs Nightmare, JR Hogg, & Joe Malcolm (WTF? Now the Nightmare is teaming with jobbers?!?) Ted Dibiase vs Gustavo Mendoza (Dick Murdoch & the Masked Superstar run in, Steve Williams evens the sides)
MID-SOUTH TV - 1/25/86 (More of the same as above, only VQ is EX.)
Recap of recent title changes & angles Butch Reed vs Buzz Sawyer, Oklahoma City, 12/31/85 (Dog Collar - Finish - one of the absolute hallmarks of Bill Watts booking right here - heels who win CLEANLY in their "signature" matches) Terry Taylor video "When the Going Gets Tough" Ted Dibiase & Steve Williams vs Eddie Gilbert & The Nightmare Interview w/Dick Slater (Funny line when he says "Everywhere I go and every time I come, Dark Journey is there..." Jake Roberts comes out to challenge Slater and they brawl. Dark Journey then sprays him with ink but Jake nails her with a DDT to a HUGE pop from the crowd. Joel Watts & Jim Ross then spend several minutes trying to claim Jake DDT'ed her by accident and "didn't know it was her". Uh...no.) Fabulous Ones vs Ricky Gibson & Steve Doll (Keirn & Lane are intro'ed as "The Fabs") Buzz Sawyer vs Joe Malcolm (For the 3rd week in a row, Sawyer gets DQ'ed for beating on an opponent after the match is over) Dick Murdoch & Masked Superstar vs Brett Sawyer & Al Perez (Murdoch gets frustrated so he belts Brett Sawyer with a chair)
