[2000-04-12-WCW-Thunder] DDP vs Bam Bam Bigelow


Recommended Posts

A pretty decent five minute match until the awful ending. Bischoff comes out to attack DDP, David Arquette has arrived on the scene to help defend his friend. He gets laid out and all the New Blood members come out and do a 1996 N W O tribute with Bischoff presiding over everything like 1998 Vince. The more things change. *1/2

That's a lot of recycled late 90s booking in one segment. I'm kind of impressed by its gall. The Kanyon save I actually thought was pretty cool, and the crowd was into him enough that you could be convinced, hey, maybe they should try presenting him seriously and seeing where it goes. The match was a typical DDP match -- solid work, but you see the spots coming from a mile away.

Lock up, Bigelow powers DDP back and unloads on him in the corner. Page turns the table and responds in kind showing plenty of intensity as he does. Clothesline off the top for two. Bam Bam reverses the Irish whip and a Samoan drop for two of his own. He concentrates his attention on Page’s weakened back with headbutts to it and a modified camel clutch. A diving headbutt to the back and DDP gets his shoulder up at the last second. Page counters a powerbomb attempt with some punches to the head and lands on top of Bam Bam. Swinging neckbreaker for two. He goes for the ‘Diamond Cutter’ but Bigelow shoots him off and into the referee knocking him down. Bam Bam misses a second diving headbutt, Page escapes the ‘Greetings from Asbury Park’ and hits the ‘Diamond Cutter’. The official is still down and Eric Bischoff is out to count the fall but deliberately stops counting at two. DDP grabs him by the throat and here’s Jeff Jarrett who breaks a guitar over Page’s head. David Arquette leaves his position in the audience to try and help his buddy, but Jarrett just rag dolls him around and gives him ‘the stroke’. Chris Kanyon is next to try and help even hitting a swinging neckbreaker on Jarrett. As he continues to berate him, Bischoff is back and levels Kanyon with a chair. Jarrett and Bischoff are then joined by the rest of the ‘New Blood’ and they spray paint ‘NB’ on the fallen bodies as the show goes off the air.


Decent action with Bigelow focussing his attack on Page’s weakened back, although we only get about five minutes before the ref bump and run-ins. This looks like the start of the David Arquette angle and he was perfectly fine in taking a beating from Jeff Jarrett, seeing him as World champion will be a different matter all together. Nice reaction for Kanyon, although the ending felt an awful lot like they were trying to recreate the NWO with the New Blood.
