Fuck Jimmy Valiant. 


Dennis Condrey vs Rocky King

Dennis killed Rocky with a brainbuster.


Magnum TA vs Barbarian

Harley did commentary, as he has an upcoming match with Magnum. Poor Pee Wee Anderson (!!!) got bumped, leading to Paul Jones hitting Magnum with his cane. Harley then got in the ring to count the pin himself. The three heels beat Magnum down until the RNR and Jimmy Valiant made the save.

Sam Houston/Nelson Royal vs Pablo Crewnshaw/Don Turner

Nelson Royal looked every bit of 64. Sam very quickly won with the bulldog. 


This show featured MULTIPLE promos each from Flair/Arn/Tully/JJ vs Dusty/LOD/Magnum/Jimmy Valiant, all relating to how each side is now going to take each other out one by one until it gets down to Flair vs Dusty again. Tully dropped Baby Doll for JJ Dillon, who dropped all of his clients to focuses solely on Tully. After Tully slapped Baby Doll, Dusty saved her so she's now with him. There were also promos from Harley Race hyping up matches with Magnum and a cage match in St. Louis with Flair, as well as Jim Cornette continuing to challenge the RNR, and Ivan Koloff fucking with LOD/America.
