Default Paul Orndorff

Been watching some old WCW promo's and stumbled upon this Paul Orndorff/Gary Spivey promo that I think I watched:



I've also seen bits of his feuds with Piper and Hogan and later Pillman. I don't really get what was so great about him? How would you sum up the career of Orndorff and what should I watch to get a sense of how good he was.

LOL I forgot about this, but I remember it now that you posted that video. So cheesy, but yet entertaining. This also reminds me of that goofy elbow drop Orndorff used to do in WCW. I think it was the inspiration for the Rock's People's Elbow.

Orndorff's best work was IMO the Great Betrayal angle where he turned on Hogan in a tag match. The lead up to that was what got me into the feud which was also feud of the year for PWI.

Orndorff is also a legit tough guy too. He had a reputation of going psycho in real fights he had with guys like Tony Atlas and Vader.

The resulting steel-cage match is probably one of my favorites from Hulkster. Love the finish.

Orndorff's claim to fame is his story line w/ Hogan. But he also had pretty good brawls with Roddy Piper (Piper doesn't have matches, he has fights for the most part).
