In Topic: American Dragon vs Lance Cade (TWA 05/20/00)

17 August 2017 - 02:46 PM

Great TV match up, got more than I expected going in. Really faced paced match, with Danielson bumping around for Cade's Clotheslines. Michaels and whomever he was calling the match were both awful, including Micheals calling an Asai Moonsault an Enzuigiri Moonsault, but I can forgive him because he's Shawn Micheals. Cade laid in some stiff chops during the match, which I enjoyed. Finish was a HUGE Chokeslam with Cade winning the TV Title. ***1/4


In Topic: Roddy Piper vs. Rick Rude (WWF, 12/28/1989) Steel Cage

16 August 2017 - 04:19 PM

A super fun MSG Cage Match between Rude and Piper. Rude was on top form here bumping around, hanging from the cage, bleeding, dropping a giant knee from the top of the cage. It was the Rick Rude show. A different spot than the norm was both guys touching the floor at the same time, and the referee ordering the match to continue. Rick Rude's ass was hanging out for the latter half of the match, which the version I GIF'd was thankfully pixelated. Heenan was involved during this, slamming the cage door on Piper and passing Rude brass knux, which led to the finish. ***1/2


In Topic: Buddy Rose & Ed Wiskowski vs The Sheepherders (PNW 07/05/80, 2/3 falls)

16 August 2017 - 02:19 PM

I really enjoyed this match as it was an excellent example of how a heel team (Rose & Wiskowski) could get the heat on the faces (Sheepherders). This was a 2/3 falls match, the The Sheepherders winning the first fall. The story throughout was the heels attacking both Luke & Butch so they couldn't take out even when they were on offence as the partner was selling on the outside. I loved Rose in his mask with hair stitched in as a result of losing a hair vs. hair match to Roddy Piper a few months earlier. The heels won the second fall, and what was interesting they were interviewed for 5 minutes and cut a promo on the faces of Portland saying they were going to run them all out of the promotion (Piper, Sheepherders, Martel etc.) The finish was a DQ when Ed Wiskowski brought a chair in to the ring. What happened after the match was really fun as the heels continued to beat down The Sheepherders until Piper made the save, what was especially fun was that Piper couldn't protect both Luke & Butch at the same time so Rose & Wiskowski kept getting cheapshot's in. Eventually they even managed to beat on Piper resulting in huge heat from the crowd with fans trying to attack the heels. Great post match. ***1/4
