Rey Mysterio, Jr. vs. Jimmy Graffiti

While everyone else is gearing up for their WrestleMania parties today I'm watching this!

Rey Mysterio, Jr. vs. Jimmy Graffiti - WCW Monday Nitro 10/28/96 - 4

Graffiti is "Gigolo" Jimmy Del Rey from SMW/WWF and looks like the long lost third member of Public Enemy here in an oversized black/yellow hockey jersey and cruddy jean shorts. For four minutes this is about as fun as adolescent truth or dare (guess that's not a universal truth but I sure had some awesome T&D moments!). Mysterio's acrobatics are just so fluid and smooth and wonderful. Jimmy takes some good bumps and does a nice running somersault off of the apron on the floor. Finish was the West Coast Pop but not the compact version we came to know and love -- more of a flying headscissors version. Really fun stuff.
