HEYEYYYYY!! Fat Tony Gancarski is roaming the Great Northeast for a couple of weeks, busy putting the GANK in Gancarski, baby! (WHAT?) I'm filling in! Settle for THIS, Motherfucker!
Booker T and Ultimo Dragon was really great because Booker T is a real good worker and Ultimo Dragon is the best wrestler in WCW. The size difference was pretty striking, but they wrestled it smart- with Booker T selling all the moves that shows off UD's impossible quickness, and UD selling Booker T's more skull-crushing powermoves to show that he isn't glossing over the size advantage. This was the main event so there was enough time for each to go on offense a few times with Booker T getting out of the Dragon Sleeper once and UD kicking up after an axe-kick. UD hits a SWANK Quebrada and Booker T hits his big ole Missile Dropkick. I love the fact that Booker T has a legit NJ Junior finisher. Ultimo Dragon- NONE MORE SMOOTH.
Psicosis vs Prince Iuakea was really good for the most part. They blew some stuff and Prince needs to work on his striking not looking so pansy-assed like Glacier or Saturn. Psicosis throws in a top rope Hurricanrana and Prince beats him with a Northern Lights Suplex into a Bridge. I should be cheesed off about the vastly more talented Psicosis putting over the journeyman Iuakea, but Prince was cool to Hangman Tim while the Prince was hanging out in the hall eating pizza at the Houseshow in Charlottesville and expressed to Tim his desire go back to New Japan again, so how can I hate him. That's Worldwide, Jake.
Silver King beat the crap out of Lorenzo, but he sold a whole bunch because
he's Silver King- the best wrestler in WCW- and he wanted to make Lorenzo
not look like the clueless rookie dipcrap that he is right now. He doesn't
beat the holy living shit out of him like Finlay did on one of the all-time
greatest Finlay matches ever, but he does smack him around and tries two
moonsaults as SK goes all Luchadelic as he only he can do. Silver King
with the Standing Somersault Guillotine. I'm wondering if WCW is gonna
ship Silver King over to New Japan for the IWGP Tag Title Inaugural Tournament
since his WILDLY RESURGENT brother Dr Wagner is getting the Fat Ass Push
over there. That would be cool way to bring in Wagner and get Silver King
into the mix over here because Liger is a booker with his head squarely
not up his ass like everyone in WCW and Liger would put the belts on them
for kicks. And they could lose the titles to Ohtani and Kanemoto on Nitro
or something. Dreaaam...dream-dream-dream....
What Didn't Work
Dammit! I wanted something to REALLY suck so I could steal the Tom Servo
joke from MST3K yesterday- "If I run out of vomit can I have some of yours."
On a brighter note, I'll probably get to wear that joke out after Nitro
and Monday is just a day away.
There you have it.
