Really nice TV match. Owen gets in plenty of offense and is being put over fairly strong by Vince at the booth, so I think by this time, Owen was going to fit into long term plans on at least a minor level. Owen blows an attempt to jump to the middle rope toward the end of the match and does a great job covering for it, selling a knee injury. If they'd had more time, maybe Bigelow would have gone after it, but the match was about to end. This was toward the beginning of longer matches on Superstars, and a rare one that actually went through a commercial break around this time.

This was either the first appearance or one of the first appearances of Owen's "rocket" themed, Bret-inspired gear (blue singlet and long tights plus weird Sgt. Pepper jacket) and I always figured he was going to get a push based on that until he blew out his knee and came back with the gear his brothers used in the Survivor Series match. And then he got a big push anyway, but as a heel.

Just a fun little bout. These guys meshed well with one another.
