[1998-10-26-WWF-Raw] Steve Austin vs Ken Shamrock ('I Quit')

Recommended Posts

This is a fun match, but Austin isn't quite at his best compared to his normal level. I still think this was a solid TV, angle-driven match. Foley runs in after Patterson assaults the referee to attack Shamrock. Patterson, Brisco and Slaughter eat back-to-back stunners.

This match disappointed me. Austin looked flabby and rusty. He gave a really sloppy performance and they didn't do any cool submission reversals and grappling that they could have. Cheap finish too. *1/2

All-action but kind of sloppy and not on the level these two could provide in a perfect world--even accounting for Austin's physical state. The finish would have come across better if it wasn't a re-do of the Dungeon Match. Still, JR did point out that the match could end if one person was incapacitated and Shamrock was certainly that, so it doesn't feel excessively cheap.
