Kazmaier came off as a real idiot in the tag title tournament final and here he becomes the first man in history to allow Abdullah the Butcher to sneak up on him. Ross goes off on a tangent wondering why Kazmaier didn't get a submission victory instead of by DQ. Yes, that's where this angle's focus needed to be.

The whole controversy with Kazmaier and Cactus was Abby's fault for coming to the ring too slowly. According to James Beard at Kayfabe Memories, referees are supposed to count pinfalls and armdrops in real time, even if they're not the planned finish. The ref (was it Pee Wee or Fonzie?) should have kept raising Cactus's arm; if Abby hadn't interfered by the time it had dropped three times, the ref should have awarded the bout to Kazmaier via submission, even if the planned finish was a DQ. That's one way that refs used to keep kayfabe, and JR, being a former ref himself, would know that and was right to call out this match's ref on it.


Other than that, this was a pretty standard run-in, followed by Sting's save. Nice to see him swinging that stick the way he would a baseball bat six years later
