Arn Anderson & Tully Blanchard (w/JJ Dillon)© vs. The Road Warriors (Road Warrior Animal & Road Warrior Hawk) (w/Paul Ellering) [NWA World Tag Team Championships]

This could be awesome.

The Road Warriors obviously completely dominated for a while. Arn eventually chopped down Hawk’s left knee, and the champs picked the knee apart for a while. Animal escaped after a few minutes. Animal ran wild for a hot second until Tully tripped him from the floor. The match broke down, and there was a ref bump. DOOMSDAY DEVIVE TO ARN: 1…2…3!

Dusty Finish time: the injured ref recovered and ruled that since Arn went over the top rope, the champs retained via disqualification.

AWFUL finish. The highlight of the match was the Road Warriors throwing the champs around for a few minutes as you would expect. The heat segment was logical, but there was no payoff to the legwork. Then the finish happened. A disappointing match for sure.
Match Rating: **
