Great Muta vs. The Giant

Great Muta vs. The Giant - WCW Monday Nitro 7/22/97 - 3

This is like a Jack Kirby splash page come to life. For '97 Muta looks exceptionally spry and light on his feet. Muta hits a couple impressive dropkicks. Giant quickly tires of this and grabs Muta around the neck only to get a face full of green mist. The post-match nWo beatdown lead by Randy Savage was germane to the ongoing storyline so this is a nice little historical footnote too.
