King Kong Bundy announces he's on strike from Gary Hart Magic Dragon vs The Samoan Checkmate vs Raul Castro King Kong Bundy/Gary Hart Debate re: Bundy's money/pay Jose Lothario vs Gran Markus II (The finish is supposed to be Lothario backdropping Markus II over the top rope for a DQ. Well, they botch the finish and then IMMEDIATELY go right back to it in a way that is really, really obvious and looks terrible and fake. Bill Mercer does a tremendous job of kayfabing over top of the screw-up but saying that Jose blocked Markus II the first time and that Markus II was trying to get a DQ win. And then "he almost threw himself over the rope to get Jose DQ'ed" on the second try. This is AWESOME. Such a subtle little thing but proof that Mercer could be not-terrible at times.)
