The Midnight Express (Bobby Eaton & Stan Lane) (w/Big Bubba Rogers & Jim Cornette) vs. The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express (Ricky Morton & Robert Gibson) [Scaffold Tag Team Match]
In order to win, you have to send both of your opponents to the mat before the other team does it to you.
Big Bubba attacked Morton in the ring, while everyone else climbed up on the scaffold. Gibson got worked over by Eaton and Lane. Ricky hit Bubba with the tennis racket and then made the save on the scaffold. Eaton and Gibson were busted open. Eaton and Lane used salt to throw in Gibson’s eyes. The teams battled more on the scaffold for a while. Lane took a fairly safe bump to the mat while hanging on the rungs. So, he was the first person eliminated. Eaton tried to hang on, but he was eventually kicked to the mat.
Cornette ordered Big Bubba to climb the scaffold after the match. Bubba got hit in the crotch though, and the Rock ‘n’ Roll Express climbed down. They then stole Bubba’s hat and coat. Jerks.
They dragged out the first elimination too long, but this far exceeded my expectations. It should be noted though that I thought it would be awful. Instead, it was a mildly entertaining affair!
Match Rating: **3/4
