WCCW DAVID VON ERICH MEMORIAL PARADE OF CHAMPIONS - 5/5/85 (Second annual David Von Erich show at Texas Stadium. Big show, though not quite as big as the first one. Mostly complete copy of the show with only a couple prelim matches missing. Quality is EX 1080p)
Mike Von Erich vs Rip Oliver Chris Adams & Gino Hernandez vs Great Kabuki & Scott Casey Fantastics vs Midnight Express, Texas Stadium, 5/5/85 (7'7" Little John is at ringside to guard Jim Cornette. They run a simultaneous pin finish but screw it up, with the Midnight Express scoring a pinfall at least 1, if not 2, full counts ahead of the Fantastics. After some consultation, the two referees screw over the MX and the Fantastics win the WCCW American tag titles. Always hated stuff like this where the heels would get screwed just because.) Ric Flair vs Kevin Von Erich, Texas Stadium, 5/5/85 (Title changes on a DQ but they ignore Flair throwing the referee AND throwing Kevin over the top rope...because. Actually an excellent match, probably ***1/2, that goes 20+ minutes.) Kerry Von Erich vs One Man Gang, Texas Stadium, 5/5/85 (if OMG wins, he gets 5 minutes with Fritz; if Kerry wins, Gary Hart gets shaved bald FOR LIFE. Kudos to Gary, he upheld his end of the bargain till the day he died.) Freebirds & Von Erichs vs Gino Hernandez, Chris Adams, Rip Oliver, Steve Williams, Kamala & One Man Gang, Texas Stadium, 5/5/85 (3/5 Falls - winning team gets $100k and a car. After the match, Gino & Chris take OMG's chain and smash the windshield of the car.)
