Not a great turn by Funk as him putting the boots to Smith didn't really have the sympathy I think Paul E thought it would. I think the problem is that Smith is indeed a total loser that can't chain together any offense. An audience can love a lovable loser but not a hopeless case.

Jarrett feels like a huckster here which is the point and him trying to use wrestling to springboard his career is something that could play even today as a heelish thing as Miz brings up his movie/ reality career. 


In Topic: 1-2-3 Kid vs Marty Jannetty (WWF Monday Night RAW 10/25/93)

Today, 12:53 AM

Man, the portion of this match before the interference was really dull and not near as exciting as I would have hoped. Something just didn't seem to click and there was absolutely no desperation at all. The finish of this is my favorite part as Polo timed it perfectly and Marty goes really hard into the post creating a stimulating visual. Polo was the emphasis of this match and too much of the focal point to the detriment of the action inside the ring. ** 


In Topic: Vader vs Cactus Jack (WCW Halloween Havoc 10/24/93, Texas Death Match)

Today, 12:52 AM

I always want to like this match more than I do and it does fool me in the beginning because it starts really hot like Marty says. I would say the match peaks with Vader coming out of his grave bloodied up and then sputters there to the finish. And woof at that finish. It felt incredibly hokey and lame and that Jack was a goof for not laying out Harley knowing he was bound to intervene at some point. A very good match but one where you feel like a classic was needed to justify some of the nonsense of the angle beforehand. ***1/ 2


In Topic: Marty Scurll vs Jushin "Thunder" Liger (NJPW Best of Super Jrs 05/21/17)

I really enjoyed this. Liger giving Scurll the bird was awesome and Scurll's heel act works well with attacking the arm of Liger and showing his dominance. The story of Liger in the BOSJ is a bit perplexing but he is 3 for 3 with enjoyable matches. ***1/2
