[2000-06-14-WCW-Thunder] Jeff Jarrett vs Billy Kidman


Recommended Posts

Jarrett couldn't be bothered to wear gear so again we have two people wrestling in denim with Kidman's normal getup. We only get about 1 minute of action on the outside until the Filthy Animals come out. Jarrett tells them not to come one step closer before getting rolled up. Tygress jumps on commentary and is awful. Jarrett ends up winning and the Animals beat up Kidman after the match. Another feud I am not invested in. *1/4

Billy Kidman is with Gene Okerlund and ‘Mean’ Gene says that it took a lot of guts for him to turn his back on Eric Bischoff and the New Blood (although in doing so it has given him a World title match against Jeff Jarrett tonight!). He explains that everyone thought he was paranoid when he said he smelled a rat in Horace Hogan, but Bischoff told him to trust him, he did, and look what happened. What he did on Monday he did not to help Hulk Hogan, but to screw with Eric Bischoff. He may not be New Blood anymore, but that’s fine with him because it means no more Eric Bischoff, and no more of his crap!


Jarrett’s wrestling this in a vest, jeans and boots as apparently his luggage got lost! He jumps Kidman before the bell, Irish whip, however Kidman ducks the clothesline and responds with a tilt-a-whirl headscissors. Hotshot and a back elbow by Jarrett sends Kidman tumbling through the ropes and to the floor. He drops him throat first across the guardrail, before whipping him into it and then throwing him back inside. Jarrett catapults Kidman over the top rope again to the outside, when the Filthy Animals music plays and they make their way to ringside. ‘Double J’ tells them not to take another step, when he’s schoolboyed for a two. Short powerbomb for another near fall, Kidman heads upstairs but Jarrett is able to sweep his legs out from under him. Kidman blocks the superplex and counters with a sunset flip powerbomb for his third two count in quick succession. Big splash off the top and ‘Double J’ is just about able to get a shoulder up. Tygress has joined them on commentary but her head set isn’t working so we get a brief bit of silence. When they get it to work you realise that silence was the better option as I struggle to understand a word she says! Rey Jr is up on the apron distracting the official, and this allows Konan to break a guitar over Kidman’s head. ‘The Stroke’ and Jarrett retains the World title. As the Filthy Animals attack Kidman post-match for his actions on Monday when he threw the chair to Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash’s music plays and they’re quickly out of there before he makes it to the ring. ‘Double J’ is not so quick, Nash snatches him, ties a belt around his neck and drags him off with him as the footage ends.


Only a few minutes of action, but enough to know that these two could have a very good match if given the chance. Helping Hogan out on Nitro and now having the Filthy Animals jump him, they’re rushing through the Kidman face turn that is for sure.
