All right, so what do you expect from a tape featuring such people as Abdullah the Butcher, Boogie Woogie Man Jimmy Valiant, Mad Dog Buzz Sawyer, Kamala the Ugandan Giant, Magnum T.A. and Conga the Barbarian? This is a wrestling show in Charlotte, N.C. Fortunately for the producers, five "title" matches happened to take place on the same day. The only wrestler who shows much athletic ability, though, is good guy Ric Flair, He does some interesting gymnastic flips on and off the ropes as he periodically nears utter defeat, if not death, only to revive amazingly and start stomping the villain again. This is neither better nor worse than an average TV wrestling show. It's too dull to be the former and nothing could possibly be the latter. (Vestron, $59.95)
