---Opening video.  Tom Peterson's main store is still located on 82nd and Foster Road.   


Why is it that I can remember how to get to Tom Peterson's, but for the life of me can't remember the address to the old Portland Sports Arena? 


---Don Coss opens the show and is joined by Curtis Thompson, Ricky Santana, & Jeff Warner.  Coss says that Rex King can no longer wrestle, so the tag team titles were stripped from the Southern Rockers.  Rehash of Doll's promo from last week is shown.  It's funny to see Santana making fun of Holliday for being gay while he is wearing a really gay white jacket and bow tie.  Good news: Thompson is going to win the PNW title for the people of Portland.  All three of these guys would be scooped up by WCW within a year.   


---Match #1: Beetlejuice vs. T.V. champ Al Madril.  Madril is, for the first time, sporting a championship belt to represent the T.V. title.  Madril makes sure to point it out too, getting upset when Don Owen doesn't mention the title during the ring intros.  Barr is tremendous again this week.  WCW scooped him up later in the year.  Although it didn't work out, he did garner much success in AAA a few years later.  They actually had a commercial break during the match, which was pretty rare.  Finish sees the ref, who just happens to be Art's dad Sandy, catching Madril holding the ropes during the pinfall.  Sandy kicks Madril off the ropes, allowing Art to roll him up.  Art puts his feet on the ropes during the pin.  The post-match is hilarious with Madril trying to convince Sandy that Art cheated.  He asks the crowd to tell Sandy, but they all say Madril is lying.   


---Al Madri's Fiesta Garden.  I guess the T.V. title wasn't on the line in the previous match since Madril is wearing it here.  Madril is upset about the fans lying to Sandy and interviews some of them.  They all hate him, so he gets more upset.  He runs down this week's line-up: Monday in Longview, Tuesday in the Dallas, Wednesday in Salem, and Friday in Eugene.   


---Coss introduces rehash of Scotty KOing Thompson with the title belt last week 


---Match #2: PNW champ Scotty the Body vs. Curtis Thompson.  It's funny here as Don Owen gets really upset at Scotty girating around with his new valet, who remained nameless.  He sounded like an angry dad when he said, "Allright, that's enough of that," and made his ring intros.  Scotty cuts a promo before the match.  Thompson wins the title with a crucifix in a real good, long, solid match-up.  All the babyfaces hit the ring and hoist Thompson up on their shoulders.  This ended Scotty's title reign, which was well over a year long.  Just about all the young stars in the territory at this time went on to bigger and better things in WWF and WCW.  Scotty was the cream of the crop.  There is no doubt that he is the real superstar of these shows.  WCW picked him up a couple years later and the rest is history.    


---Coss interviews Thompson.  Coss says Thompson won the title in the shortest amount of time than anyone else in Northwest history, after only one week in the territory.  Scotty interupts and challenges Thompson to face him in every town this week for the title.   


---Match #3: Brian Adams vs. Bill Francis.  It really can't get any worse than this match.  Francis is about Adams' size and just as immobile and talentless.  That wasn't really a problem for Adams though, since he would sign with the WWF just a few months later.  It's kind of funny if you think about it.  While WCW picked up all the real good talent like Scotty the Body, Art Barr, and Curtis Thompson, the WWF picked up Brian Adams.  I guess size really does matter, in New York anyway.  Adams gets the win with the full-nelson in a really boring match.

---Coss interviews Rip Oliver, who is joined by his son Larry.  I guess the Grappler made an open challenge last week.  I must have missed it.  The Grappler is forced out onto the stage, where Oliver says he accepts the open challenge and wants to face the Grappler next week.  Grappler refuses and then attacks Rip with a chair.  More...
