Creepier by the Dozen #8

Halloween Havoc 1996
Chris Benoit & Steve McMichael vs. The Barbarian & Meng - 5

Very physical match. All four guys were just pounding on each other. McMichael and Meng had and exchange to start with where McMichael tried to knock down Meng with shoulder blocks. Barbarian and Meng were very vocal on offense, especially Meng. Barbarian and Benoit did a spot off the top where Benoit got thrown damn near all they way across the ring. The super sick thing about that was the height that Benoit got on a simple toss off the turnbuckle. Double team moves were good from Barbarian and Meng, especially the double powerbomb and the suplex/splash combo. McMichael came across as the worst one of the four, just out there doing nothing really great to watch and resting on his laurels. End came when McMichael hit Meng with a briefcase that the announcers oversold on commentary. What followed was wild beat down of Benoit and McMichael by Kevin Sullivan’s Dungeon of Doom group to further that angle. Good mid-card match but nothing to really recommend.
