Bossman and Razor barely touched each other in their incredibly boring bout. Razor won with his feet on the ropes and sent Bossman packing. The six-man bout focused mainly on the Martel/Tantaka feud that was happening. It was fun to watch mainly because there aren’t many six-man tags nowadays. The ring action, though, was for shit. Michaels and Kamala was beyond terrible and I’m not even going to waste space talking about it. Skinner got a rare shot at the IC title as did Virgil. I enjoyed both matches and they are recommended just for their rarity. The battle royal was a waste of time. Normally, I don’t mind battle royals so much, but the number of guys involved made for some very limited action. It gets some props because it was taped at the Cincinnati Gardens, but that was about the only thing good about it. Hart and Martel was another pleasant surprise but was marred by interference from Michaels at the end. The Beverlys did what they could with the large duo of the Disasters. Looking back now, I realize just how good of a team the Beverlys were, even though they weren’t brothers. Closing out the tape was another snoozer between ‘Taker and Yoko. Mr. Perfect hosted the tape from the friendly confines of a stamp-collecting store and traded some very wooded dialogue with a “clerk” whose acting was worse than Ben Affleck in the movie Gigli. Most everything on this tape had been done before although Michaels vs. Skinner, Michaels vs. Virgil, and Hart vs. Martel were pretty decent.
