WCW Uncensored 1999 - WCW Cruserweight Championship
Billy Kidman(c) vs Mikey Whipwreck ~ ***3/4
Lets have Mikey Whipwreck debut in the company via no hype and a random championship shot. Brilliant! No sarcasm. It really was a smart move. He got 15 minutes to showcase to the WCW crowd how awesome he is. Kidman was riding some mad momentum as champion around this time. Continued to bring it here. What ensued was a nice blend of the standard high flying action, hard hitting bumps (in true Whipwreck fashion), and probably the most effective debut on a name basis only as Mikey got immense heat the moment his name was announced, haha. If there is anything to miss in this era of wrestling it was a little thing like that. Strong match. Obligatory "stole the show" comment. Which is common place among quite a bit of WCW PPVs for the openers. Especially those with cruiserweights in them.
I'm such a sucker for cruiserweight matches back in WCW.
A practical application of an abstract ideal.Born of a dream to create a reality.
