Starts out with Buddy Landell who is apparently going to be a special ref in an upcoming Tom Pritchard-Jimmy Golden match. Landell is suitably goofy throughout the 25 or so minutes of this episode.
Match 1: Jimmy Golden vs someone. Robert Fuller at ringside! Golden's son is injured...Golden and Fuller do some promoin' afterwards.
Match 2: Kid Kash vs John(?) Noble. Pritchard is in Noble's corner, Noble is fine and no he's not Jamie Knoble. Kid kash is Kid Kash and he gets referred to as David Cash quite often during a pretty good match here. Screwy runins at the end and Pritchard does the old-school promo...there are MANY young wrestlers who should watch the Doctor here and take notes on mic work.
Match 3 has a very green fellow who reminds me in his mannerisms of 1981-era Rick Rood in Georgia. His finisher is-an Atomic Drop! Paging Mr. Backlund!
Ends with a goofy segment with the Turbanators and their manager. NWA Rocky Top is fun.

I dont even pretend to follow the Japan scene, but I was always under the impression that they favored work rate over in Japan. If so, Sting would be the ONLY one of the three who could draw, if they are soley looking at WORKRATE.
