The ten man tag was fun as I recall. The tag match at the end with Kerry and lawler on it might be new, I don't recall it airing. It I could be wrong. They did two or three nights worth of tapings for AWA tv down there.

The tag team match with Kerry Von Erich and Michael Hayes vs. Jerry Lawler and Jimmy Valiant aired, but quietly. My recollection was it didn't air before the Super Clash III PPV and was burned off in the latter part of December when the AWA's TV show was airing a hodgepodge of matches from various tapings and even some of the PPV bouts. There was no build up. One day it was just on.
 
Scott Steiner wasn't pushed at the tapings to build up Super Clash because he wasn't getting a match on the PPV. There were a few other Memphis guys in the same boat like Gary Young who got used as competitive jobbers. In all they did three tapings. Nashville was on its usual Saturday night and may have been at the nicer Municipal Auditorium rather than the Fairgrounds Sports Arena. Louisville was held on Sunday night instead of its usual Tuesday. Memphis was on Monday as usual.
