Oh man this is around the time where Droz and Albert lost a match where they had to become Godfather's hos. Oh Russo. Bradshaw took a hell of a shot with that cane. I remember loving this at the time cause I was a Hardyz fan.

Big upset with the Hardy winning the tag straps. i did like Hayes saying that these guys were the stars in the interview backstage. Was the Droz/Albert stuff WWF response to Lenny/Lodi?

A rare Russo SWERVE that works--if he saw some future star power in the Hardyz, then good on him. I'm sure a number of WWF brass wouldn't have given them the time of day except as enhancement talent. GTV then takes us to Droz and Albert dressing up like hos per a prior match stipulation, with Albert being horrified that Droz is really getting into the role.

WWF World Tag Team Champions Acolytes vs Hardy Boys - WWF RAW 7/5/99

 

This is actually in North Carolina. Michael Hayes clearly saw something in the Hardys. I remember this vaguely. It seemed like overnight all of sudden the Hardy Boys were a thing with Michael Hayes. Like they really came out of left field. I was really surprised when they won. Great angle to do in their home state!

 

The Hardys dive to the outside. Chaotic start. The big bruisers overwhelm the new age Rock 'n' Roll Express. Matt Hardy gets a neckbreaker as hope spot. Nice highspot with the double legdrop and splash. Faarooq thorws down Matt and then powerslam on Jeff. Tag out to Bradshaw. Big boot by Bradshaw. Bradshaw was tombstoned on Heat by Kane. Bradshaw with some great Stan Hansen bodyslam and then kick to the back. Bradshaw catches Matt off the top and Jeff gets a missile dropkick to get a two count for the Hardys. Jeff takes a double shoulderblock. Jeff gets a DDT as a hope spot for two. Faarooq tags out. Bradshawn clubberin. Matt big boot to Bradshaw concussed head. Matt punching him in the head. Bradhsaw doing a great job selling. CLOTHESLINE FROM HELL! Jeff saves. Farooq takes out Hayes. Jeff canes Bradshaw, tornado DDT by Matt and NEW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS HARDYS IN THEIR HOME STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA! I really enjoyed this. ***1/4
