Yeah1993 brought it up. Totally forgot about Steamboat's second stint with WWF in the very early 90's. One of those "if you blink, you'll miss it" type affairs. He was scheduled to work at Survivor Series '91, but by the time the event rolled around he was already out. So he showed up in WCW again swiftly.
I'll hit up all those matches tomorrow. Along with the Midnight Express 6 man that I haven't gotten around to. I blame all the mess of WCW goodness I find on dailymotion through recommendation lists.
Ultimo vs Malenko had a few, or maybe a handful, of matches in WCW around the late '96 - early '97 time. That's probably the right match. Especially if the date is next to it on your list. It made it nonetheless. That's
YES. I own that Nitro on DVD so I'm well aware of the awesome presence of the tag. Reminds me of why I enjoyed Faces of Fear as a kid. Especially Haku/Meng. On a WWF MSG show in the 90's there was a Haku vs Davey Smith match that OWNED. Seems to be one of the most noteworthy Haku matches off the top of my head. Plus he had a fun Hogan encounter that's on Hogan's Unreleased Matches set. I liked his style.
