DAVID VON ERICH MEMORIAL SHOW. Lots of home movies, photos and match clips as they spend the entire hour talking about David Von Erich. Some cool stuff here. They also have interviews with other wrestlers talking about David. They mostly do a great job of acknowledging David as a real person without violating kayfabe. Jimmy Garvin leans heavily on God taking David, an interesting line coming from a heel. Ric Flair gives some comments. And then we get Michael Hayes, after a great kayfabe but legit tribute, assuring us the Von Erich/Freebirds feud will never end. GROSS. To wrap things up, we get the entire Von Erich family sitting around a pond on their property. What could have been a really cool scene ends up being kayfabe nonsense with everyone talking about how important the NWA title is and how Kerry & Kevin will go after it even harder now. GROSS. No real emotions or sadness or anything.
