[1998-08-03-WWF-Raw] Taka Michinoku & Val Venis vs Dick Togo & Shoichi Funaki

They show a clip from the previous week's RAW of Yamaguchi-san uttering the words "Choppy choppy your pee pee" for the first time before the match. The problem with Val Venis is he's all gimmick and entrance, and there's no really anything else to his act to make people either cheer or boo. Taka turns on Val and joins forces with Kaientai, who put the boots to Val. That would have been a fun midcard heel stable if they gave them a little more shove, actually. We learn that Mrs. Yamaguchi-san is Taka's sister. This got good heat and I liked the turn.

JR makes a token attempt to get Kaientai's athleticism over, but this is the WWF and no small man can beat a big man, at least not for another 15 years or so. The beatdown after Taka's turn was pretty well-done since that's Kaientai's forte, and the quadruple hip swivel was fun, too.
