Barry Windham© vs. Larry Zbyszko (w/Baby Doll) [UWF Western States Heritage Championship]
Larry could get nothing going early on. It took him close to ten minutes to slow down Barry. He got control by going after the left leg, which had apparently been injured going into the match. Windham later fought back and applied a sleeper. They brawled on the floor. Fifteen minutes had gone by at this point. Larry got control briefly and worked Windham over some. After a ref bump, Windham got a schoolboy: 1…2…3? But Baby Doll did the count. Windham was very confused. Larry hit Windham with Baby Doll’s shoe: 1…2…3
There were some moments of decent here, but this was needlessly long and boring. Windham came across like a real idiot for thinking he won right after the ref bump. This show is not off to a good start!
Match Rating: *
