Ronnie Garvin And Greg Valentine's Submission Match At The 1990 Royal Rumble

I was watching this event again for what was probably the first time since I was a child, and I found this match sort of amusing. Despite it being a submission match, both guys repeatedly kept making attempts to pin each other instead. What the hell? It's one thing if you do it once in the heat of the moment, but both guys kept doing over and over again throughout the whole match. Were we supposed to believe that the punches they were hitting one another with were causing them to have constant short-term memory lapses where they forgot what kind of match they were in or what?

I think it actually may have been the first submission match in WWE, and was at least one of the first. They were selling how unique of a concept it was, part of the story being that they were having to fight against their natural instincts about what to do in a wrestling match.

Also, I'd buy it if the punches were supposed to be hurting their memory. They stiffed the hell out of each other. I fucking love that match.
