[1993-07-10-USWA-TV] Interview: Johnny Polo & Disco Inferno

Recommended Posts

Didn't realize Raven and Disco went back this far. Disco is stunned at the lack of discos in Memphis as "Get Down Tonight" by KC & The Sunshine Band plays.

Disco laments how Tennessee rednecks are too stupid to have any discos around, listening to miserable honky tonk country music instead. He's going after Danny Davis' USWA Middleweight title. Dave Brown is nonplussed.

Disco's dance skills are ridiculous here. This was odd to see in Memphis in 1993 as both developed a lot from here until 1996 with Flamingo in a really different gimmick and Disco in a refined role.

Not much worth commenting on here, as both Raven and Disco deliver as you'd expect.

 

One thing I wasn't thrilled about was Disco dismissing a reigning champion like Davis as a tomato can. That completely decaluses both the title and the wrestler who holds it, especially when it's said by someone who's never wrestled in a territory before.

 

Did the USWA ever ackowlege that Johnny Polo had been Scotty Flamingo just a few weeks before (and probably hadn't left the territory between gimmicks)? They've been good about acknowledging things like that in the past; the only reason I can think of that they wouldn't is if Vince had specifically given Levy that gimmick to develop in Memphis before bringing it to the WWF and told Papa and Lawler not to spoil it for the fans who watched both promotions.
