[2000-03-13-WWF-Raw] Kurt Angle vs Tazz vs Chris Jericho


Recommended Posts

Tazz is still hanging around with the bigger stars longer than I remembered. Action here was only three minutes but had a good bit of high impact suplexes and powerbombs. Tazz gets the tazzmission on Angle to not much of a reaction. The one he gives to Backlund gets a much bigger one which is interesting. Backlund looks for the chicken wing but gets a low blow from Chyna. With all this chaos going on, Kurt is able to use a belt shot to win the match. *

Everyone gets to talk before their 4-minute match, which Tazz declares no DQ. These guys worked a ton of stuff, maybe too much, into a four-minute match, but it was a fun ride with everyone working incredibly hard. Angle pins Jericho in the end, who was easily the most over guy in the ring.

Promo from Angle as he’s walking to the ring which includes clips of Bob Backlund saving him in previous matches against both Chris Jericho and Tazz. Typical childish promo from Jericho accusing Angle and Backlund of having a special ‘love’ connection, before Tazz seemingly takes it on himself to make this a ‘no DQ’ match. Tazz reverses an Angle Irish whip, sidesteps him as he rebounds off the ropes and Jericho backdrops him over the top rope to the floor (wild looking bump). As Tazz and Jericho fight in the middle of the ring, Angle heads around the outside and picks up his European title. He climbs the turnbuckles, but Tazz cuts him off and sets him up for a superplex. Jericho then from behind with a belly to belly off the middle to Tazz. Angle with a belly to belly on Jericho and Tazz is there to break up the pin. ‘Head and Arm Tazzplex’ and this time it’s Jericho breaking up the pin. Angle whips Y2J into the ropes, he holds on though and dropkicks the air. Lionsault and again the pin gets broken up. Greco Roman throw to Jericho and Tazz locks in the Tazzmission on Angle. Bob Backlund is out, but Tazz sees him coming and let’s go of Jericho to put the Tazzmission on Backlund. Angle nails Tazz in the back and throws him to the outside. ‘Walls of Jericho’ on Angle, Backlund with a clothesline to the back of Y2J and he’s about to put the chicken wing on when Chyna sprints out and low blows him. Impressive springboard dropkick to Tazz, but Angle levels Jericho with his European title belt for the pin to retain the championship.


Short all action match with Jericho and Angle working harder than they probably needed to given the time constraints of this match. Bob Backlund got a surprisingly loud reaction when he did his run in.

Fun sprint that manages to fit a pretty huge amount into 4 minutes or so. Despite his great debut, Tazz just never really worked in WWE and it's Jericho and Angle who look the best here. The crowd is hot for their interactions, including a nutty bump to the floor from Angle and a proto-double superplex spot. The finish is slightly overworked but it's fun to see Backlund around, even if it was for a short time and man, Chyna is STILL with Jericho. Still, a good TV spot and it was clear that they had two megastars on their hands
