WCCW TV - 10/8/83 (More from the WCCW syndicated show. Quality is EX 1080p)
Buddy Roberts vs Johnny Mantell (Buddy Roberts, still selling the hair angle from nearly 4 months earlier, comes in wearing his headgear with a blond wig attached. Then he takes it off and wrestles bald.) Iceman Parsons vs Bill Rathke Chris Adams & David Von Erich vs The Mongol & Boris Zhukov Kerry Von Erich vs Terry Gordy (Early in the match, Gordy slaps on a choke and the ref starts counting and...just keeps going. He gets to 6, Gordy doesn't break, and the ref gives up and just starts pulling on him instead. I get that the ref knows the finish and isn't supposed to change things but everything I've ever heard is that the refs are supposed to play it straight and DQ/pin guys if they screw up like that. Anyway, the match ends when Gordy just destroys Kerry with the Oriental Spike so David Von Erich runs in and attacks Gordy. Kinda weird - Gordy's done nothing illegal, David just doesn't like watching his brother lose.)
