Projects motivate me and I've been looking to take somebody totally random and do a deep dive on them to find. . . something. Mostly, just to give me something to pursue and I think it'll be fun. Typhoon popped into my mind as he so often does and so here comes a retrospective on the run of Typhoon in the WWF.
Natural Disasters vs. Bill Sampson and Bob Abbott (6/29/91)
This is on Superstars and it's right after Typhoon turned on the Bushwhackers and eschewed the Tugboat identity. Vince and Piper spend a lot of time recounting why Typhoon felt disrespected and call back to him getting thrown out of the Rumble by Hogan. I remember none of this.
As for the match there is hardly anything here except Earthquake throwing an ugly knee to the gut and Typhoon dropping a nice hearty elbow to the chest.
Natural Disasters vs. Matthew Burns and Scott Carlson (7/7/91)
From Wrestling Challenge. This is a tad bit meatier and more enjoyable than their TV debut. Typhoon hits two nice splashes in the corner and disdainfully steps over one of the scrubs on his way to tag in Earthquake. It should be noted that Earthquake hits some sweet leaping toe kicks in the corner. We get a Bushwhackers insert promo during the match. Typhoon's splash to set up the Earthquake splash looked really good. Not a great squash or anything but not bad.
Natural Disasters vs. Bobby Jones and Larry Ludden (7/21/91)
Nothing of note here as they build to a Summerslam match against Bushwhackers. Typhoon gets to shrug off some dropkicks before hitting his big splash in the corner but Earthquake pretty easily upstages him in this. Much better at using his agility and far better presence too. I do love the double team finish with Typhoon finishing things off with his typhoon splash this time.
Looking forward to this.
