[1995-05-21-WCW-Slamboree] Nasty Boys vs Harlem Heat

Recommended Posts

The last few minutes of this are actually pretty hot. The Nasty Boys win the WCW tag team titles. Sherri takes a big bump to the floor (she's caught, but it's still risky ...)

What an ugly match. Knobbs comes out late in the match for the hot tag as he was supposed to be injured, and Saggs worked 90% of it alone. At one point Stevie Ray fucks up a legdrop from the first or second rope in the most glorious way. Sherri takes the biggest bumps in the match. She's got guts and she's the reason the whole thing was watchable. The Nasties are tag champs again. Yawn. They suck.

Match 307 in a series of 695 (and possibly ongoing today). Mercifully clipped to the finish, which is actually pretty well-done. Knobbs returns from a rib injury to get the hot tag, takes out all 3 members of Harlem Heat with Sherri taking a crazy bump to the floor, and the Nasties win the tag titles.

Slamboree opener. Knobbs was injured by the Blue Bloods on the live Main Event, finally diverting the Nasties away from the endless Harlem Heat series. At least temporarily. Regal and Eaton were incensed at not being considered for title shots, so they did it the old-fashioned way and laid out one of the champs during an interview. Double suplex, multiple chair shots, stiff soccer kicks to the ribs, the whole nine yards. God save the Queen.

In a pretape, Stevie Ray notes that some people "wanna lay their hands on this good old gold." Also dig Cappetta, normally a rather rhotic speaker, saying "Sista Sherri." :)

Sags, living up to his reputation as the superior working Nasty, is pretty fired up for his solo shine. He hits a really snug axe bomber, a double DDT, his trademark pump handle slam, and some trademark Nasty ball shots. Of historical interest, Booker hits one of the first spinaroonis into a move, basically using it as a kip-up into a sidekick. Of humorous interest, Stevie Ray's first rope leg drop, the only time I've ever seen that. I think he probably just forgot to climb up to the second rope. But the director cuts at just the right time, so we barely see him falling 6 inches onto his feet and doing a regular leg drop.

Sags takes quite a shit kicking, including a Harlem Hangover and a piledriver, but the old overconfidence gets in the way, allowing miracle kick-outs and Knobbs' return. Holy shit, that is an amazing bump by Sherri! I think this is actually the best match of the series so far. ***

The Blue Bloods come out wearing designer suits and scowls. The Nasties immediately challenge them.
