[1999-01-24-WWF-Royal Rumble] Road Dogg vs Big Bossman

Recommended Posts

It's insane to think how over Road Dogg was at this time, given his talent. The crowd eat up all his catchphrases. They start with a lot of stalling and the crowd don't seem to mind. I've watched the past few episodes of Raw and this is worked at a much slower pace than anything you would see on the TV show. Say what you want about Russo's booking, but shorter TV matches and longer PPV matches is a winning combination. There's nothing too fancy here, big punches shift the momentum as apposed to a flashy slam or suplex. Road Dogg hits all his signature spots to the crowd's approval, only to fall victim to a Bossman Slam out of nowhere to end this one. Solid enough house show-esque match to kick things off.
