David Crockett announces that the Eastern Division winners are Ole Anderson and Stan Hansen and they will meet Western Division winners Wahoo McDaniel and Don Muraco in a best-of-seven series in seven different cities for the World Tag Team championship. The cities will be announced shortly.

Sandy Scott presents Jack Brisco the Mid-Atlantic Heavyweight title belt. Jack won the title from Roddy Piper on Monday 5.10.82.

Piper interrupts the proceedings and is completely out of control, angry over having lost the title. Brisco, returning the favor of a couple weeks back when Piper brought out a mini-teepee for Jack, brought Piper a big lollipop – “This is for you, sucker.”

Tim Horner, who Bob Caudle pointed out had seen the match in Greenville, told Piper if anyone deserved to get his can kicked, it was him. Piper went nuts and attacked Horner, who fought back but was then double teamed by Piper and Ivan Koloff. David Crockett went in to break it up and took a nasty shot from Piper as well.

Interview – Jack Brisco and Don Muraco. Sandy Scott announces that the NWA is conducting an experimental program and it will be in the Mid-Atlantic area. All matches must end in a pinfall or submission. There will be no disqualifications in matches. Very odd.
