[1999-10-18-WCW-Nitro] Rey Misterio Jr & Konnan vs Harlem Heat

Recommended Posts

Last few minutes. Kidman and Eddy are on commentary. Eddy isn't cut out for commentary. Kidman calling Booker T a "great worker" ... come on. Konnan is FIP and they are building to a Rey hot tag, but this has no heat at all. The commentary isn't helping get this match over outside the arena either. Booker T ends up brawling with Eddy and Kidman and Rey and Konnan pin Harlem Heat in the ring to win the tag titles. Fans popped for the finish, and Russo did push this group hard at first.

Boy are Tony and Brain in full mail it in mode here. I think Disco was on commentary too or at least it sounded like him. The First Family are shown in the back looking on. I would have loved to see Brian Knobbs vs Rey Rey.

Eddy calling Harlem Heat out of shape when you have Konnan lumping around was interesting. The action here was pretty bad and the structure is messed up with the Animals acting like heels but they are building to a Rey hot tag. Action in the final few moments is good with Rey diving around and he gets the surprise pin to become the new champions. Welcome to the world of Russo.

We've got guest commentators at ringside and shots of the First Family in the back to distract us from all this pesky wrestling going on. Kidman praises Booker for being a "great worker" and "great performer"--good Lord. Of course Billy would top himself in a few months in that catch-as-catch-can debacle when he reacted with disappointment upon Malenko giftwrapping a win for him in 2 minutes--how can a guy I've praised for his surprisingly solid fundamentals be so clueless about working? Eddy isn't too good either, shitting on Harlem Heat to the point where an Animals' win sounds pretty meaningless. The crowd, not weighed down with all this extracurricular bullshit, pops for the win.
