POWER PRO WRESTLING VOL 38 - 11/9/85 (Same as above)
Dick Murdoch attacking Ted Dibiase, Mid-South TV, 11/16/85 (Ted's got a title shot against Ric Flair and Dickie doesn't like it so he tells Dibiase to step aside and let him have the match. Dibiase refuses so Murdoch DRILLS him with a stiff punch to the face before running him into the ringpost, leading to a massive bladejob by Dibiase. And, just like that, Mid-South's top heel is now a babyface) Ric Flair vs Ted Dibiase, Mid-South TV, 11/16/85 (JIP - Dibiase manages to overcome his injuries and put forth a valiant effort to win the NWA World title. Alas, it's not to be and he ends up getting counted out. Murdoch returns to attack Dibiase again, hitting him with a brainbuster on the floor. Jim Ross is suitably disgusted by this, telling viewers that we've just witnessed the ending of Dibiase's career. This is an amazing angle, executed incredibly well. Dibiase is now a sympathetic babyface and, by association, so is Steve Williams) Jake Roberts vs Bob Sweetan, Tulsa, 11/10/85 (For the life of me, I can't figure out how Sweetan got a job with Mid-South in 1985. Way past his prime, not a good worker, not a good talker, has a bad look, and a despicable human being, to boot.) Bruise Brothers vs El Corsario & Mark Strong, Oklahoma City, 11/10/85 Humongous vs Wendell Cooley, Oklahoma City, 8/25/85 Al Perez video "Winning"
