Squash Match Sunday-3

SQUASH MATCH SUNDAY

“Cena-free since late August 2011”

Little introduction to this article series:

• 3 matches will be spotlighted every Sunday morning based on their nostalgic qualities, their in-ring performances, their campiness, and their performers’ contributions to today’s wrestling world.
• Will always showcase the big 3 (WWF/E, WCW, TNA).
• Will sprinkle in some ECW every now and then. We don’t want TOO much bloodshed too early in the morning, now do we?
• Not EVERY match will be a squash, but it’s always nice to see the fan favorite totally dominate.
• Main event of Squash Match Sunday will normally have a title on the line, and will ALWAYS be a quality wrestling match.

Now as Kevin Nash said to the unemployment office the Tuesday after HHH fired him…let’s get to the action!

EARLY BIRD SPECIAL

In our Early Bird Special match, we have Chris Chetti taking on Mr. Power Ranger himself, Lance Storm back in a 1999 ECW ring. To be honest, I didn’t think that a 4 minute squash match existed back in ECW. I suppose this match occurred during that ‘beginning of the end’ period, when they started handing Rhyno all of their belts.

MID CARD HANGOVER

Our two wrestlers competing in Mid Card Purgatory are The Berserker and Bret “Hitman” Hart in a 1992 WWF ring. And yes, this match was seriously for the World Wrestling Federation championship. I’ll give you 5 guesses who the champ was coming into this match.

Things to keep an eye/ear out for:

• HUSK!!!!
• God bless Bobby Heenan. I’m sure that humanoid mother of his deserved what she got from the Brain.
• HUSK!!!!
• Starting at 2:45, Lord Alfred Hayes becomes a giggling schoolgirl for about half a minute. My favorite quote is “Nobody answer the telephone there nuyahHAHA!”
• HUSK!!!!

YOUR MAIN EVENT OF THE MORNING

YOUR main event of the morning pits Hollywood Hulk Hogan against Sting for the WCW World Heavyweight Title. This match definitely withstood the test of time. So many good matches occurred during the late nineties in WCW but are tainted with the sloppiness of nWo. However, this dream match didn’t totally disappoint. Poor ending, but overall a good showing by these guys.

Your main event worthy commentary of the afternoon:

• By far, the best sell of the match goes to Charles “Little Naitch” Robinson. And my goodness it’s refreshing to see Nick Patrick officiating a match. I suppose the wrestling match was good too.
• I need more atomic drops in my life. Not being performed on me, but to see more in general.
• Towards the middle of the match, Bobby Heenan utters the line “Six inches away from becoming champion of the world.” I think Pat Patterson has used that line in the past too.
