As far as the HBs were concerned I believe that had a tag match against Arn & Flair that I really liked. I need to do more research on them as a team.
No disrespect man, but Pillman....well IMO I just think he gets way too much credit. As a face he just plain sucked. AS a heel, well heck any wrestler with a hint of charisma can act like a wild card. It is frankly the easiest role to play. Simply "shoot" and people think you are a genius. Nope Pillman was talented in the ring, but a great talker.....lots of people can act like a butthole.
