Match 4 (steel cage): “Dr. Death” Steve Williams versus “Mr. Wonderful” Paul Orndorff


Rating: **

Summary: While the finishing sequence with Gordy was a great callback to WCCW in 1982, he should have assisted Williams with his escape before entering the cage. C’mon, Abrams, a DQ in a cage match?

Afterward, Cactus Jack prevents other wrestlers from getting into the cage to stop the carnage. Muraco arrives and rams Cactus into the cage. When Muraco enters the cage, Gordy meets him with a flurry of punches. Muraco rebounds by ramming Gordy face-first into the cage and does the same to Williams. As the numbers catch up to him, Gordy and Williams double-ram Muraco into the cage leaving the babyfaces down on the mat.

Conclusion: You have got to be fucking kidding me. This feud began in October and has contained not one but two gimmick matches to blow it off. Yet, as it stands, neither match ended the feud but convoluted it with a horrible finish.

How can Abrams gain an audience for his PPV when he keeps screwing up the finishes? This promotion is starting to irritate me.

Next week, Terry Gordy squares off against Don Muraco! I bet there isn’t a clean finish.

TV Rating: NONE
