soup23 Posted October 3, 2017 Report Share Posted October 3, 2017 This match is usually held up as a good match but I thought it was pretty much a waste until the big Shane spot. The opening is Shane running around until Blackmon stalks him down and we get some trash can shots and other generic WWF hardcore action. The strap is used by Blackmon and we get some embarrassing comments on the worthwhileness of child rearing. Shane is a heel because he went to a psychologist to talk out his problems. Then, T&A runs in to help Shane and this becomes a glorified handicap match. Shane was really building up a neat faction with E&C, Angle, Benoit, Big Show but not we have T&A as his helpers. JR on commentary does regain his composure by mentioning how odd it is that Test and Shane are on the same page. The big Shane bump is impressive from a height and risk standpoint even with the foam landing pit. I do think it is kind of odd to have this match and huge bump happen two matches before the TLC match which would also be filled with insane bumps. Overall, I think this match can be condensed into a 10 second gif of Shane falling. The match itself was nothing. *1/2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
