[2000-08-02-WCW-Thunder] Mike Awesome vs Chris Kanyon

Recommended Posts

Oh man, time for Fat Chick Thriller Mike Awesome and hes ready to give you a dose of Vitamin P….. passion. Awesome says if you are fat, you are just busting at the seems with love. Holy shit this is awful. Kanyon comes out and suddenly his DDP cosplay gimmick looks genius in comparison. Stevie on commentary talks about all the bookers he has been through. The action is fine but its so much to overcome with these gimmicks and again were only given about 2.5 minutes. Kanyon hits that wheelbarrow powerbomb which looks impressive given Awesome’s size. Kanyon also gives a Kanyon Cutter from the top rope of a seated Awesome. Kanyon gets frustrated at not getting the pin and hits the referee before giving the cutter to a photographer and ring crew at ringside. Kanyon has snapped! Judy Bagwell runs down and hits Kanyon with her purse. Running Awesome Bomb and this is it. ¾*

Awesome is accompanied by one of ‘his bigger fans’ as Tony Schiavone refers to her. He cuts a cringe worthy promo about how everyone knows who he is and knows what he likes “so if you’re pleasantly plump and large and in charge, the Fat Chick Thriller is here to give you a dose of the old Vitamin P...and the P stands for passion baby!” He then says how Kanyon stuck his nose in the wrong place before and that he made a promise to the lovely Judy Bagwell, so tells Kanyon to get out here so they can fight. Awesome with a shoulder tackle and a big clothesline on ‘Positively’ Kanyon. Legdrop across the chest for an early two. He whips Kanyon into the turnbuckles and a huge running splash. Kanyon counters the punches in the corner with a low blow, and then with Awesome sat on his shoulders, dumps him face first to the canvas. He picks up a chair from ringside, but Charles Robinson snatches it off him and throws it to the floor. ‘Alabama slam’ into a powerbomb for two, however he’s not happy with the count, grabbing Robinson around the neck. A neckbreaker garners another near fall, but he again seems to hold Robinson responsible and decks him with a right hand. Kanyon takes out more of his frustrations on innocent bystanders, with a pair of ‘Kanyon cutters’ on two ringside photographers, and a further one on a member of the ring crew. As he attacks one of the cameramen some more, out jogs Judy Bagwell who clocks him with her loaded purse. Awesome drags Kanyon into the ring and a running ‘Awesome Bomb’ gets him the win.

 

Another quick match, which seems to be the theme for this episode of Thunder. I have to wonder what Awesome was thinking when creative gave him this ‘Fat Chick Thriller’ gimmick, after previously being the ‘Career Killer’. No idea or reasoning behind Kanyon leaving his opponent to start giving ‘Kanyon Cutters’ to photographers and the like, while Judy Bagwell’s brick that was in her handbag looks like it was made out of rubber or some other flimsy material.

It says so much about Vince Russo that making Mike Awesome the fat chick thriller isn't even the bottom of his barrel.
