Originally reviewed here.
This was for Owen and Bulldog’s WWF Tag Team Championship.
LaFon got cut off after some uninspired action. He was worked over for a while. Owen accidentally gave Bulldog a spinning heel kick, and that led to some physicality between the future Hart Foundation members. LaFon tagged out. Furnas made a very cold comeback on Owen. The match got very clunky as it broke down. Bulldog seemed to have the match won with his powerslam, but Owen stupidly hit LaFon with his Slammy trophy beforehand for the disqualification.
Owen’s Slammy trophy broke in the post-match scuffle.
Clunky and disjointed. Those are the only two words appropriate to describe this one. It was all about the dissension between the tag champs, and that is just not an interesting story. Well, it’s not a good way to produce good wrestling at least.
Match Rating: **
