Match #85: Dynamic Duo, Kamala, Rip Oliver, One Man Gang & Dr. Death vs. The Fabulous Freebirds & The Von Erichs (3/5 Falls) (5/5/85) First, there’s the shock of the Freebird and Von Erichs on a team. Then you’ve got the fact it’s an odd three out of five falls match and it’s at Texas [...]
Match #84: Gino Hernandez & Chris Adams vs. Kerry & Kevin Von Erich (Texas Tornado Match) (3/22/85) This feud continues with a rematch from a month before when there was a heated lumberjack match. Somehow this is going to get wilder, as they upped the stip.
In episode 7 of CCCP, the battle lines are drawn in the war between Team Cara-Maria and Team Laurel. In addition to the Grey Team’s Gulag controversy, there was plenty to discuss including Bananas stepping up his game, the continued shunning of Camila, and some good ol’ fashioned Challenge debauchery. We’re hitting the home stretch, [...]

Match #83: The Fantastics vs. Midnight Express (3/8/85) The final of the trilogy of Midnights/Fans matches on this set, this one emanating from the Dallas Sportatorium.
Match #82: Gino Hernandez & Chris Adams vs. Kerry & Kevin Von Erich (Lumberjack Match) (2/22/85) The Dynamic Duo/Von Erich feud continues with men standing on the outside so no one can run. Sounds fun.
Match #81: Chris Adams vs. Kerry Von Erich (2/8/85) Their last match, a month before, was eight of the best minutes I’ve seen from the Sportatorium. Unfortunately, I was hoping for twenty minutes. Here’s hoping this rematch is less condensed, and that they can hold together something long form.
Match #80: Ric Flair vs. Terry Gordy (1/11/85) The rematch from the February ’83 match, with a much more experienced Gordy against the real world’s champion.
Sorry for the wait. Circumstances, you know? The gap between this and 118 will be considerably smaller. I’m back in the hosting chair for 117 and it’s jam-packed.

Match #79: Chris Adams vs. Kerry Von Erich (1/11/85) The evil Gary Hart leads Adams into the Sportatorium to face the Modern Day Warrior.
Match #78: The Fantastics vs. Midnight Express (1/11/85) The rematch from the wonderful and smooth tag title match from Christmas Day—won by the Fantastics.
Match #77: Gino Hernandez, Chris Adams & Jake the Snake vs. The Von Erichs (12/31/84) A rematch for the six man belts, and this time the Von Erichs are at full strength. Look out Dynamic Duo and the Snake.
Match #76: The Fantastics vs. Midnight Express (12/25/84) The greatness of tag teams featured in the Mid South Diaries finds its way to Dallas on Christmas day. It’s the Midnights vs the Fantastics.
Champions’ Challenge lived up to its name, but being the champions of podcasting we are, Brian and I were up to the challenge of watching Bobby Dempsey and the local jobber brigade, Steve Corino vs. Jeff Early, and all the rest. Fortunately, we were rewarded with the titular main event and a characteristically solid effort [...]

Match #75: Terry Gordy vs. Killer Khan (Texas Death Match; Special Guest Referee, Kerry Von Erich) (11/22/84) Bam Bam and the Killer from the “Orient” throw down in a death match where territory favorite Kerry is in charge. It’s like Godzilla versus King Kong, with Superman enforcing the rules. Terror ensues.
Match #74: Gino Hernandez, Chris Adams & Jake the Snake vs. Bobby Fulton, Mike & Kerry Von Erich (10/27/84) Now that Adams has taken Kevin out, the Dynamic Duo and the Snake go for the NWA Six Man titles against the Von Erichs and fill-in Fulton.
