[2000-06-26-WWF-Raw] Chris Benoit vs Rikishi


Recommended Posts

Is there a contract where these guys can’t wrestle for more than two minutes? Another decent entry from what we see but we don’t hardly see anything based on time. More work on the shoulder of Rikishi. Rikishi is looking for his big splash when Tazz of all people runs out and slams him with the chair. Benoit after the match hits another chairshot and a diving headbutt to the shoulder. I guess we are trying to do something with Tazz now. ½*

Rikishi’s bicep is all bandaged up after his previous encounters with ‘the Crippler’. He’s not holding anything back in his offense though, throwing Benoit through the ropes to the outside and then launching him head first into the ring steps. Thrust kick, but he’s shaking out that upper arm instead of following up which allows Benoit to connect on a dropkick to the injured appendage. Drop toe hold and a baseball slide dropkick to the bicep. Rikishi is like a one armed man in there and can only throw lefts which ‘the Crippler’ easily dodges. Sunset flip by Benoit however Rikishi counters with a sit down splash. He tries to pull Benoit to the corner but doesn’t have the strength in that arm so slowly does it using only his left. As he climbs the turnbuckles for the Banzai splash, Tazz rushes out and clobbers him in the back with a chair for the DQ. He doesn’t stick around mind and a Rikishi looks at him wondering what just went on, he’s KO’d from behind by Benoit chair shot.


After it seemed to work moving Bob Holly and Val Venis into the Intercontinental title picture, it looks like they’re now trying it with Tazz.
