  1. Mid-South Tag Team Champions Mr. Wrestling II & Magnum TA vs Midnight Express - Mid-South 2/10/84 After exacting some revenge from Butch Reed by taking his tag team titles, fans and Magnum TA thought it would be a sweet honeymoon for the beloved teacher/student partnership. However, as Magnum star grew, the fans clamored for him to get a North American Championship shot and jealousy reared its ugly head. Let me say, green is not a good color on Mr. Wrestling II. In the meantime, a new heel tag team from Memphis burst on the scene and would go down as perhaps the greatest tag team in the history of wrestling, Jim Cornette's Midnight Express and this version is "Loverboy" Dennis Condrey and "Beautiful" Bobby Eaton. Midnight Express matches should be played for those with clinical depression because if you don't smile after one of these then I don't know what could make you happy. The MX is just so awesome at stooging, bumping and generally making the babyfaces look like a million bucks. I think my favorite part of the early match was how every sequence ended with Mr. Wrestling II giving a knee lift to a Midnight Express membrane and then selling it dramatically and fantastically. This is where Mr. Wrestling II has a little Dusty in him with his booty shaking as the heels keep scurrying. After ten minutes of getting their asses kicked, Condrey is rightfully terrified of II's kneelift and backs up in the corner. Condrey is able to lure him into the corner and force II to make a tag, but he prematurely tags out to Eaton. Mags goes after Eaton's injured shoulder (rammed into the post earlier). Mags gets caught running as Eaton ducks and Condrey chops him in the neck. At this early point in his short career, TA is clearly better at selling and the MX go to town with a great revolving door attack on his arm even Corny gets his licks in with his racquet. Mags powers out and desperately gets to Mr. Wrestling II, who fights out of his corner to earn his way into the ring. II's Eaton-seeking knee lift is on target, but the ref is distracted and Condrey throws powder in his face. The ref throws out the match, but MX kicks the ever loving shit of Mr. Wrestling II and Magnum TA especially with a belt. There is some mega heat on MX and Watts is out to lay down the law as MX finally exits. This is a really fun match where MX were just on point working their match with ton of popcorn, fun spots early to feed to the babyfaces. Mr. Wrestling II looked huge in there. Magnum really does not have much in the way of offense and again he was out of place on multiple spots. He is really good at selling, but not much else. It will be interesting to see how he fares in singles matches with Ted DiBiase shortly. The match was mostly a backdrop for the hot angle to set up a tag team title match with the stip of belt lashes for the losers. Mr. Wrestling II completed his heel turn by walking out on Magnum costing them the tag titles and forcing Magnum to take all the belt lashes. Mr. Wrestling II would go to win the North American Championship to set up Magnum TA to get his revenge by beating him for the title. Setting up the major title match between the rising star Magnum TA and lead heel, Ted DiBiase. The match was a really fun Midnight Express match that got to show off their stuff and get in an excellent beatdown. ****
  2. Two expiration of time matches on the same show? I take it one of the dates is off, but I’ll still go with 1/1 for both until or unless I’m corrected. Eaton and Ware are a heel workrate machine as a tag team, although I think part of it is the overall sense of urgency. This is rushed since it seemed like they wanted to get in the body of the match before the show went off the air, but it’s very good all the same, and the benefit is that they do get in opening shine, heat on Taylor and a hot tag to Rougeau, so the match doesn’t feel like it’s missing anything. I’d love to see these teams in a longer arena match. ***1/4
  3. OMG. This match has never aired and it might be their best match between these 2 teams to ever air which says a lot. This is a classic feud . We have tons of matches between the 2 teams. This is the best. The opening shine set the pace early, and it was great.Cornette might have had one of his all time great performances. He gets the crowd into a total lather. He does a modified Wrestle War 90 spot with the ref. Except better because it never gets over the top. He does this all without the tennis racquet. When the MX get on the heat they just beat the hell out of Tommy Rogers. The crowd is insane here. Corny cheapshotting throughout. Fulton was great at always running out to try to protect his partner, but just can't. Fulton's work on the outside can't be overlooked because he added so much gravatis to the situation. They tease a hot tag, but the MX knock Fulton off the apron. The crowd is insane, and they want to kill Corny. Several of them look to lynch him. The cops are even nervous at this point. Finally, we get a hot tag and when I say the crowd erupts, it's not hyperbole. When The Fantastics go over it was like Jordan hitting the bucket against Craig Ehlo.This is everything I love about wrestling 4 1/2*
  4. Got this for the Secret Santo project, a fun TV tag. Starts out with Sting and Eaton rushing the ring to brawl for the shine. Cactus takes a nutty bump down a ramp at Center Stage. Only thing about Center Stage I like as a wrestling venue so far really. Eaton does a quick FIP (match is something like 7 minutes) that is good for the time it gets. Abby does some unexpected quick stuff like running across the ring to getting between Eaton and Sting after a tag that I wish would last the whole match. Eaton doesn't take any particularly nasty bumps to try and top Cactus, might be something that he does as a heel moreso than a face. He also uses mostly punches as offense. And as good as Eaton's punches are he has so much more offensively. Again, maybe something he does as a face and saves his more varied offense for when he is working heel. Have seen this in other Eaton matches from around the same time as well, so maybe he just didn't care for where he was after Corny and Stan left. Hot tag is fine, but Abby kind of bogs it down. Not sure he's worked enough of this kind of match to really know where to be when, because Sting has to track him down and get some token attacks in just to make things look good. Finish seems rushed and it's really odd that an Abby throat thrust would put anyone down for the three. Either somebody came up with the idea of enough attacks to the throat = finished (which would be a smart way of looking at things) or it's just lazy booking and/or wrestling. I'm leaning towards the second. Fun TV match but it's hard to get into PG-rated Abby matches for TV when he can be so great in his element. Cactus is good, Eaton is not at his best but still good as the plucky FIP. Sting is kind of an afterthought besides all of the brawling with Cactus and a few brief moments after the hot tag. I did like getting to see Bobby play FIP and Cactus do his thing though.
