Show opens with Bob Caudle. I hated him when I was a kid. But I guess he was over in the South since he reminds you of a deacon in your church. Nice TV trick. The TV screen is right next to the ring, but Caudle looks at the screen, which shows Paul Jones and Jack Brisco in the ring. After the commercial, Jack and Jerry Brisco are being interviewed by Caudle before the match. Jerry doesn’t want Jack to wrestle. Jack wants to wrestle. Neither can explain what they are thinking. Wahoo chips in. No idea why the hell he is even out there.

Match No. 1: Paul Jones vs. Jack Brisco for the Mid-Atlantic title. Brisco goes to work on Jones’ legs. Classic. Sir Oliver Humperdink is smoking a cigar at ringside. Brisco still working on the legs. Ditto. Brisco goes for the Figure Four. Humperdink distracts him. He chases Hump but hurts his leg jumping to the floor. Jones goes to work on his leg. Jones hits Brisco in the throat, rolls him up and holds the tights for the pin and the belt. Decent old school match. Nice booking. Rating: ***1/2
