- Scott Keith

- Live from Charlotte, North Carolina.

- Your hosts are Tony Schiavone, Jim Ross and Bob Caudle.

- This was a highly-requested show: The first-ever Clash of Champions, done to screw with the Wrestlemania IV buyrate by being aired opposite on TBS.

- You know, it's almost worth the rental to see the cheesy T.H.E. video promos before the show. Beta? What's Beta?

- You know, back in 1988, I was incredibly stoked to see this show, because they hyped it on Worldwide forever, but then I found out that it was on TBS, which we didn't get in Canada until 1991, so that was kind of a downer. Anyway...

- Opening match: World TV title, Mike Rotundo v. Jimmy Garvin. This would be an Olympic rules match. Not to be confused with the "Olympic rules match" fought between Sabu and Cactus Jack in ECW. In this case, a one-count is all that is needed to win. Lots of basic stuff to start, with Rotundo bailing every time he gets taken down, for obvious reasons. This feud is another step in the ongoing "Kevin Sullivan wants Precious" storyline that concluded at Bash 88. Way too many shots of the crowd, as was the norm for that time period. First period is five minutes, and Rotundo nearly gets a pin with a three-quarter nelson. The second round begins with Garvin going for the brainbuster and Sullivan going after Precious to distract him. Rotundo cradles and gets the one-count for the pin. Big brawl erupts after the match. I don't see the point of the stips. *

- US tag team title: The Midnight Express v. The Fantastics. Sorry, was there some PPV going on? I forgot. Huge brawl to start, and I mean A HUGE BRAWL. Rogers goes after Lane in the ring and Fulton pounds Eaton with a chair. Lane rams Rogers into a chair to retaliate, and even Cornette hits the faces with chairs. Even a table gets used, albeit not broken. Finally they get into the ring and the Fantastics double-team the Express to death. The Express hits the Double Goozle on Rogers to take control. The action is literally non-stop here. Cornette holds up the table and Rogers gets whipped into it, selling it like he's been shot. Great looking spot. Eaton powerslams him and hits a Randy Savage elbow. More double-teams from the Express, including a Demolition Decapitation.  More...
