New U.S. Champion Wahoo McDaniel
Host Bob Caudle introduces the new U.S. Champion Chief Wahoo McDaniel, who admits that winning the U.S. title has complicated his bid for the world tag titles with partner Don Muraco. Don comes out and says he is very frustrated with Wahoo's commitments for his new U.S. title becasue he moved his family here from the west coast with one thing on his mind only - to win the NWA world tag team titles. He then walks off. Wahoo says he hopes he can smooth things out because he and Muraco have become good friends.

Muraco expresses his dipleasure over Wahoo's US title win.

[ ] Wahoo McDaniel (U.S.)/Don Muraco defeat Juan Renosa/Bill White

This is the match where Muraco turns on Wahoo. During the match Sgt. Slaughter comes out to ringside trying to distract Wahoo. Wahoo goes for the pin following a big chop on Bill White, but Sarge pulls White under the ropes breaking the count. White gains advantage on Wahoo who finally makes a needed tag to Muraco. As Wahoo climbs through the ropes to the outside apron, Sarge takes off his belt and hits Wahoo with it. Wahoo goes after Sarge and chases him out of the studio. Shortly thereafter, Muraco goes to the corner to make a tag, but Wahoo isn't there. White and Renosa continue to work over Muraco who is at this point desperately fighting both men. Wahoo returns to the ring, and Muraco finally angily makes the tag, and then walks out of the studio himself leaving Wahoo to White and Renosa, who brutalize Wahoo for several minutes. Finally Wahoo lands the big chop on White coming off of the ropes and gets the pin, but is very angry and suprised that Muraco left him.
