Aye Sweet Brown Sugar is the aforementioned Koko Ware. Match is built around Eaton being a chickenshit trying to avoid Mantell as well as Mantell and Cobra being past rivals and having teased moments of dissension. Koko bumps like a mad man throughout and the post match brawl with Mantell sensing blood is magical. Koko literally jumps over the ropes to the floor to escape his onslaught.
The Final Conflict Cage tag is a slow burner. Well worth the journey but something I can understand people being hesistant on watching in its entirety. Definitely a match you need to be in the right frame of mind to digest.
Hollywood Blonds mindset got you there, I'd imagine. btw, what's your thoughts on Blonds vs Arnderson & Roma from Beach Blast '93?
Sounds like some more Mid-South goodness. Koko seemed to pull no punches as a bumping heel. Think I made the facetious remark that Dolph Ziggler must have been a big fan of his during those days.
I think it was something wrong with the computer more than it was a lack of interest. Most of the time anything with Steamboat or Slaughter means it is something I'm down for. I'll get on it eventually of course. Especially if it's a classic match that must be seen by any and all wrestling fans. I'll pride myself on saying "I saw it" and whatnot.

Opposite of me. I was nearly done with mainstream wrestling in the early part of 2008. So bland, even with Undertaker as World Champ not being enough to save me. Then the summer hit, Punk was World Champ and things felt fun again. That's when ECW picked up and RAW was not quite as bad. Smackdown though. Oh, they were terrible still. Probably only had a handful of matches worth seeing that year. Undertaker vs Kane, Undertaker vs Big Show in the cage, umm, a fun Helms vs Shelton match that I'm not sure if it holds up, THE Brian Kendrick had a fun solid bouts, MVP might have had his two best bouts of his career vs Batista & Jeff Hardy.
