Francine & Michael Shane vs. GI Ho & Norman Smiley
I have not seen a Norman Smiley match legitimately since I was but a wee lad watching Nitro. I’m beyond excited. Cagematch says this is the only match of GI Ho’s career.
Norman looked awesome doing a sequence with Shane. Ho and Francine did the terrible catfight spot. Shane went to attack Ho, but Norman made the save. Norman assaulted Francine until Shane gave him a superkick. Francine handcuffed Norman to the ropes. Shane then put Ho through a table with a Superfly Splash, as Norman screamed from the ropes. Shane pinned her for the victory.
As far as angles go, this was terrible and eye-rolling. As far as Norman Smiley goes, he looked incredible in the ring. I must watch all of his matches ever.
Match Rating: 3/4*
