Originally reviewed here.
This was for E&C’s WWF Tag Team Championship.
Throughout the first 45 minutes of the show, we were “treated” to some vignettes where the champs tried to get out of the match by faking food poisoning. Commissioner Mick Foley caught them faking it though.
Edge and Christian made fun of Texas. Bradshaw then cut a blistering promo about how amazing Texas was. He also put over Dick Murdoch, Bruiser Brody, The Von Erichs, and The Freebirds.
The Acolytes ran through them for a bit. Bradshaw got cut off and then worked over. Faarooq made a hot tag and had the match won. Edge hit him with a belt to get DQed and save the titles.
Edge and Christian scampered away. The challengers chased them to the back.
They worked the formula well, and it would have been quite good with a finish. While the pre-match promos were nauseating, a title change would have gotten over huge.
Match Rating: **1/2
