[1998-10-24-NWA] Dan Severn vs Steven Regal

Recommended Posts

Hm... two things about this match: 1. It's Regal literally on the brink of death 2. It's Regal and Severn in a long, intense mat based contest, which is itself pretty cool. I'm not gonna pretend this was GREAT or something and there is probably something macabre about enjoying a match where one guy is close to self-destruction, but all things considered, this was pretty fun. Severn busts out some cool shit like a pretty sweet cobra twist into a pin, and Regal, while struggling to keep it together, keeps it together, and they have a sort of quasi UWF meets NWA style match. Even inebriated, out of tune Regal with his boot on the wrong foot can still make basic holds look good and hit stiff uppercuts, and the applause from the crowd they got was astonishing. I mean, slot this match 20 years back in the time and there would be nothing out of the ordinary here except Severn's armbars.
