That Benoit is so dangerous.
I find him rather boring tbh, dude even put his family to sleep for christ sake
*I'm an awful human being.
I don't get the Ziggler love either, Caida, not ring wise or character wise. There isn't one stand out thing about him apart from his bumping tbh.
Nice to see I'm not the only one. I don't even mean it as a slight on Ziggler, its just that whenever his name is brought up it seems comments about his bumping (why people confuse this with selling I still can't fathom) are the only thing that follows, and I'm just honestly curious if the Ziggler fans on here can share me with me what it is exactly that makes them drawn to him.
Anyways, more tag team wrestling ~
Rockers vs Orient Express, Royal Rumble (1/19/91)
God damn was this worth all the hype it gets, tremendous STF match with the Rockers being excellent babyfaces and the Orient Express putting in a damn good methodical and calculating heel performance. Opening babyface stretch has some great heel miscommunication spots and gets the crowd really rabid and behind the Rockers, and they time everything to perfection and slowly build to the transition spot. Spot where Michaels spots the other member of the Express sneaking up behind him and moonsaults into a punch combo was really nifty and a super spot.
Actual transition spot is really well timed by both teams and really adds extra heat to the Orient Express whilst putting over their capabilities as a unit. I'm by no means the biggest Michaels fan on here, but I'll be damned if I ever grow tired of his tag team work. He's a stupendous babyface here, bumping and selling his arse off with every blow and really pulling the crowd into every sequence whilst Jannetty works the apron like a champ. The Orient Express have some really great classic tag team heel spots where they pull the ref around the ring to allow Fuji to hit Michaels with the cane as well as getting in some illegal double team moves behind the referee's back. Hope spot where Michaels looks to make the tag, only for the Express to blinside Jannetty and irish whip Michaels into a belt only for Michaels to dive onto the belt and pull both heels into another and then make the hot tag was the best sequence of the match and beautiful tag team wrestling.
Jannetty off the hot tag is everything you want him to be. Energetic and throwing punches and dropkicks left, right and centre. Actual finish is also extremely creative and well worked, with the Express teasing a screwjob finish when they launch Michaels to the floor and double team Jannetty, only for Michaels to interupt the second double team attempt and allow Jannetty to hit a silky smooth sunset flip counter for the flash pin.
