The 1-2-3 Kid vs. Hakushi
They did a couple of cool sequences, and Hakushi got control after a somewhat botched tilt-a-whirl backbreaker attempt. Hakushi worked Kid over for a while. He hit a Sasuke Special. Kid avoided a diving headbutt in the ring and then made a big comeback. He got a nearfall with a splash. He went for a spinning heel kick, but Hakushi reversed it into a one-armed powerbomb: 1…2…3!
This was a very good time. Hakushi looked awesome on offense, and it’s a shame he did not have a longer run with the company. I need to watch more of Waltman from his first run in the WWF. I missed a lot of good stuff.
Match Rating: ***1/2
