Scotty 2 Hotty vs. Taka Michinoku vs. Dean Malenko

Scotty 2 Hotty vs. Taka Michinoku vs. Dean Malenko - WWF Sunday Night Heat 4/23/00 - 6

Nice watching Scotty brawl in a bucket hat.  Fast-paced early inc. Taka getting launched over the top crushing Dean on the floor.  Loved to see Peter Jackson film this match in 48fps.  Dean's always great at small things like floating over on covers.  Not sure why Malenko and Michinoku are both working in cut-off shirts though.  Rare to get a three-way on free TV.  Taka is a bump machine getting hung out to dry on the top rope by Dean then getting knocked off the apron and crashing wildly into the security rail by Scotty.  Hotty does a jumping DDT variant off of the top rope on Taka which was a great, effective, and affecting finish.  Great post-match heel stuff by Dean getting his heat.  I always instruct young workers when unsure live by this motto "Sell, sell, sell!".
