[1980-01-12-Portland] Buddy Rose & Chris Colt vs Matt Borne & Iceman Parsons

Recommended Posts

First time to see Chris Colt in action for me. A very young Maniac and Iceman as the rookie team was interesting. The finish was vintage Portland. I won't spoil it, but I did like it. Good match.

We learn that Sponsors are offering $1000 for anyone to take a hair vs hair match with Rose. Hope is they win and buddy is so embarrassed, he leaves the promotion. That is awesome. Borne and Parsons don’t have their later year personas here and are essentially used as an upstart babyface role that is used to showcase Rose and Colt. This was my first time really watching Colt and he was effective as a scummy bruiser partner for Rose. The quality of tv wrestling in Portland is amazing. The actual wrestling is at a higher level than what we’ve seen and you have great personalities with Rose and everything surrounding him. First ten minutes is Borne in an armbar and all geek tactics surrounding that to maintain the advantage. Hot tag to parsons was great and crowd was heated. Buddy ducks a dive and parsons hits the post. Heels continue to take any advantage and sneak in to win the advantage. Match ends up going to a draw which helps elevate parsons and Borne immediately. Really solid tag match. ***1/4
