Commentary by Roddy Piper. Piper claims Wahoo, Muraco, and Piper are afraid to get in the ring with him.

Sonny Fargo tells the Briscos only one can wrestle against Russo.

Interview - Jack and Jerry Brisco prepare to wrestle in a tag match. Referee Sonny Fargo interrupts to let the Briscos know that Tony Russo's partner did not show up and that one of them could wrestle Russo in a singles match. Jerry says that he has not been in the area for awhile, so he will wrestle Russo. Jack remains to do color commentary with Bob.

[ ] Jerry Brisco defeats Tony Russo by submission with a figure four leglock.
Jack is doing color commentary. During the match, David Crockett comes out and tells Jack that he has a phone call, and Jack leaves the podium. After Russo submits to the figure four, Roddy Piper runs in, climbs to the top of the turnbuckle and jumps off on Russo and Brisco while they are still in the figure four position, injuring both men. Paul Jones, Jake Roberts, and Ron Ritchie make the save. Jack then re-enters the studio to check on Jerry. Clearly, the phone call was a ruse to get Jack Brisco to leave the studio.

Piper leaps on Brisco and Russo

[ ] Carl "Pretty Boy" Fergi defeated Mike Davis after a back breaker.  Commentary by Wahoo McDaniel.
Wahoo says Jerry Brisco's knee is "tore up bad" and if Jack needs a partner, he's available. Bob and Wahoo discuss the whole situation about Piper injuring Jerry's knee. Wahoo played pro-football for years and saw many knee injuries, and they never came back.

Incessant talk of the NWA trial ruling where matches must end in a pinfall or submission. No DQ.
