If results can be believed, Wendi worked AWA and Mid South shots while in the middle of her WWF run, only weeks before the MTV title win.
Pretty neat drop this week with a Leroy McGuirk studio wrasslin' show from 1978.- McGuirk is dull and needs his announcing partner to feed him names and such as they discuss angles. Bill Watts comes in a few minutes later to replace McGuirk and covers for his bland and uninspired promoting by saying something like "Men of Leroy's generation were masters of hiding their emotions". I thought it was a great spin.
- Paul Orndorff works a rookie Bill Irwin. Irwin is the exact type of semi-star that gets my juices flowing. The men shake hands to start, but Irwin gets a cheap forearm in on a rope break to establish a heelish persona.-
Ray Candy works next, far less fat than I am accustomed to. He and Orndorff both used takedowns and grappling on the mat, as if this is some sort of sport or something.
- We get a fine assortment of geeks and freaks as THE MONGOL, The CHALLENGER and The BRUTE eat up TV time. Plus Jose Lothario!
