Terry Gordy vs Steve Williams (No match – Hacksaw Duggan comes out and issues a challenge to the winner of the match, whoever that might
be. Michael Hayes is on commentary and he complains about Duggan’s presence, rightly saying the refs need to make him go away. When they
don’t do that quickly enough, he goes down to ringside and gets into a fight with Duggan. Williams & Gordy then jump in as well. At that point,
One Man Gang & Leroy Brown come down to ringside and also begin brawling. Gordy & Hayes use that opportunity to jump on Williams and
injure his left arm. GREAT ANGLE!)

Michael Hayes & Buddy Roberts vs Ted Dibiase & Terry Taylor (Country Whippin’ strap match – This is a great example of the brilliance of
Bill Watts when it comes to booking heels. He has Hayes & Roberts job cleanly to Dibiase & Taylor here, as they should. But after the match,
Hayes runs Taylor into the guardrail, knocking him down. At the same time, in the ring, Dibiase has pulled out his black glove and is going after
Gordy. Hayes jumps in the ring and hits Dibiase from behind. They steal his black glove and then KO him with it. Brilliant! The heels lay down
for the 1-2-3 and then get their heat back in an intelligent way so everybody ends up looking good.)
