[2000-05-15-WWF-Raw] Eddy Guerrero & Chyna vs Dean Malenko & Perry Saturn


Recommended Posts

I am conflicted on the Radicalz fighting this early. On one side, they did establish them as just a couple of professional guys looking to gain a job and that was why the union was taking place. On the other side, it does feel like they were a cool unit that could be poised to have a big run and now these three are fighting and Benoit is above it all. This was pretty clunky and everyone seemed a bit off execution wise. Saturn does hit a nice flying elbow and gets the pinfall on Eddy as Chyna inadvertently kicks him in the balls. Good enough job hyping the Judgment Day match. *1/2

Saturn rushes Eddy and suplexes him over the top rope to the outside leaving Chyna all alone. She gets in a shot on both before Perry takes her off her feet with a clothesline. They look for a double team, but as Saturn heads to the top, Eddy gives him a shove and he falls to the arena floor. Handspring elbow by Chyna on Malenko. Guerrero with a leg lariat, but as he steps out onto the apron for a slingshot senton, Saturn pulls him down to ringside where he holds him in a full nelson for a Malenko baseball slide dropkick. Nice gutbuster, however Eddy counters the pumphandle into a roll up for two. Saturn with a flapjack and a big top rope elbow for a two of his own. Over the shoulder backbreaker before driving Eddy chest first into the turnbuckles. Guerrero blocks the superplex and responds with a face first version followed by a great leaping huracanrana. Hot tag to Chyna and her offense looks dreadful as she’s singlehandedly taking care of what is left of the Radicalz. DDT to Malenko, and now all four of them are in the ring fighting in opposite corners. Saturn reverses the Irish whip and Eddy crashes into Chyna. She gives him a back kick low blow, thinking its Perry and not him, which allows Saturn to hit a brainbuster for the win.


Watching Malenko and Saturn together I’m reminded of when both teamed with Benoit, and the difference is like night and day when they were with him as opposed to each other. There’s just no connection with the audience with this pairing. I kinda feel sorry for them as ‘the Crippler’ has long passed them, and to be fair, so has Eddy. While they came in with such a fanfare opposing the likes of Mick Foley, the Rock and Rikishi, now they’re being ‘womanhandled’ and struggling to deal with Chyna. She looked seriously bad here and everything she does, from throwing a forearm to throwing a clothesline to executing a bodyslam, just looks awkward. Saturn with the surprise pin on Eddy days out from Judgment Day, although the likelihood of either getting a win in the three way there is extremely unlikely.
