The Midnight Express (Bobby Eaton & Stan Lane) (w/Jim Cornette)© vs. The Fantastics (Bobby Fulton & Tommy Rogers) [NWA United States Tag Team Championships]

The match was a wild brawl from the start with The Fantastics in control. The match finally settled down after the Express cut off Rodgers and then worked him over. Rodgers was destroyed for a while. It was grand. They sporadically used a table to attack him. Rodgers finally tagged out, but the referee didn’t see it. Fulton tossed him away and thwarted Cornette’s attempt to interfere. Rocket Launcher: 1…2…3!!

Dusty Finish™. A second referee made the count though, and the original referee reversed the decision or restarted the match. I can’t figure it out. Yep, The Fantastics were disqualified. The Midnight Express and Cornette attacked The Fantastics after all that.

That was a super-hot match, and it was enjoyable despite the awful finish. Dusty Finishes are terrible. Really, really terrible.
Match Rating: ***1/2
