Cactus with the Barbarian are declaring war on Vader/Orndorff. I don’t know enough about Tex Slazenger and Shanghai Pierce to know why they would be considered scallywags.

Kind of too bad Barbarian left as soon as he turned babyface, because I think there was potential in this team continuing. Good promo from Cactus, who isn't changing a thing despite turning babyface. I shudder to think how the WWF would have treated this at the time.

I would have liked to see how this all started, as Cactus/Barby-Vader/Orndorff really sounds like something I'd pay to see.

 

I think Cactus called Slazenger and Pierce scalawags because they reminded him of himself when he was younger.

 

I thought Cactus was good here, especially the line about Orndorff's piledriver making his neck snap, crackle, and pop like a bowl of sadistic Rice Krispies. Few other wrestlers even attempt imagery like that.

 

One problem: Cactus never mentions the World title. I know they've put all of their promotional power behind Sting as Vader's next big challenger. but if you're going to involve your World champion in multiple angles, you have to let all the people you've got him feuding with talk about possibly taking the belt from him. Otherwise, do what Vince did with Hogan and have him feud with only one guy at a time.
