[1997-01-25-USWA-TV] Flash Flanagan update / PG-13 promo

Recommended Posts

Flash Flanagan is still injured from the PG-13 attack. We speak to his father, who is a bit emotional about Flash's injury. One month in, and we've seen Wolfie's mother and Flash's father. Not particularly good acting.

 

Back at the studio, PG-13 cut a promo crying crocodile tears. I love Cory Maclin getting in PG-13's face with his weird enunciation. We get mocking of Flash's injury involving a Flanagan doll. Never gets old watching these guys.

Flash's father was brutal. He is no John Cena Sr.

 

Things pick up with the Pg-13 promo in studio. They are excellent heels at this point and extremely hate-able.

I wonder did they do multiple takes and this was the best one dad could do. PG-13 are crying at the awfulness of the acting. It is the most sickening thing they have ever seen. Corey gets wise with Wolfie D.

PG 13 are so awesome. If they came along ten years earlier, they would have gone much further in the business.

 

Is the guy interviewing Flash Sr. later OVW announcer Dean Hill?

Flanagan’s father is all choked up speaking about his severely injured sun. The acting wasn’t the best, but he was committed in a way you usually don’t get from non-wrestler acting on wrestling shows. At parts I thought it crossed over from “this is bad acting” to “I could actually believe this is how his father might react.” The awkwardness made him feel like a real guy at points.

 

PG-13 make fun of Flanagan. PG-13 are over the place in 1997 but never got pushed all that much outside of Memphis which is a shame because they had value as a mid-card heel act.

Yeesh, that was some acting job by Flash's old man. There's something amusing about the idea of fans calling the studio to check up on a wrestler in 1997. I mean, obviously it was nonsense, but the fact a promotion is still using that line on TV is a throwback in itself. Fitting that it'd be Memphis, I guess.
