Did Red River Jack appear on the 1987 Parade of Champions card at TX stadium?  I believe if memory serves right that he teamed up with Spike Huber.  Any info on this one WCCW fans?  Thanks

Spike Huber's spot on the babyface team with RRJ was intended for Dingo Warrior, but he had walked out on the territory due to some grievence, so Spike was pushed into the spot late via a rushed feud with Eli The Eliminator. They did an angle in Fort Worth with Eli piledriving Spike on the floor. However Spike, who was doing a construction worker gimmick, managed to get his hard hat on just in time to negate the move's effects. For what it's worth, after the card Warrior returned to the promotion for a few weeks before quitting for good and heading for the WWF.

I'm guessing Bordy worked so much on this show (3 times!) partly because he was booker and partly because he might have realized that the show just didn't have all that much going for it at the time and he needed to carry the card.

Yeah, and sometimes Brody would come out with RRJ to show that they weren't the same person.  I don't remember if I ever knew who it was, but there was at least one other guy playing RRJ besides Brody.

Rick Davidson wore the Red River Jack mask when Brody appeared as himself in order to "prove" that he and RRJ were different people. Rick and his identical twin John did a heel biker gimmick that involved lots of switching. They worked in Los Angeles near the end of that territory's run and also worked a bit in Dallas in the late 1970s where Rick met and became friends with Brody. Rick was still living in the area by 1987 and since he was a big guy and a friend of Brody's, he got the call. At one point it was rumored that the future Undertaker wore the mask since he was getting broken into the wrestling business in Dallas-Fort Worth at the time, but that was not the case. If you see the video, the substitute RRJ was not nearly as tall or as slim as Taker was and still is. I think the confusion came from Taker debuting under a mask as Texas Red not long afterwards.

Dave Meltzer has said that Brody told him that Mark Calaway did some shows as the 2nd Red River Jack.  He may not have been the one on TV, but since Calaway wasn't anything close to a name yet, I would guess that it's true.
