[2000-12-30-MPPW-TV] Spanky vs Derrick King

Recommended Posts

This was a really lame overbooked 7 minute match. Spanky's stuff looked more effective here than in a lot of his previous matches and Derrick King didn't look too bad, but the match just never felt like anything special. The two ref bumps were lame and the refs didn't even bother selling them anymore once the bell rang and the double pinfall finish was super lame too. Skippable.

Dave Brown seems to think that Spanky is coming out here to defend his MCW Light Heavyweight title and wants to get a few more details from him.  Spanky informs him that he’s not here to defend his title, he was just feeling generous today, so has come to wish him and everyone a happy holiday.  A bit of ‘comedy’ with Spanky running down his itinerary for the month that was given to him by the Commissioner on official MPPW paper, the joke being that the paper is in fact toilet paper.  Dave wonders where ‘the Kliq’ are and Spanky says that they’re already out celebrating the holidays.  He’s going to head off and join them when they are joined by Derrick King.  DK, fancying his chances without ‘the Kliq’ in the building, wonders if Spanky is so tough without his buddies and challenges him to put that Light Heavyweight title on the line against him.  Spanky say that he will someday, just not today.  As he is about to leave Dave gets word from the Commissioner in the back who has approved the match for right now.

King with a tip up over the incoming Spanky and he then powerslams him to the mat.  The opening to this is just a steady stream of two counts from both men.  He sits Spanky on the top turnbuckle but the champion counters whatever he had planned, dumping him across the top rope.  More near falls before it’s Spanky turn to sit ‘Mr Personalities’ up top.  DK fight him off and connects with a missile dropkick, however it looks like he reinjures his leg in doing so.  He’s able to continue but after a leapfrog is hobbling and clutching at his knee.  Spanky takes advantage of the opportunity, kicking away at the leg and then locking in a ‘Sharpshooter’.  King breaks free and as he looks to reverse the hold Spanky goes to the ropes.  Referee Mike Johnson gets accidentally taken out by a King crossbody, although this was one of those instances where you could see it coming as he was stood far too close to the wrestlers.  DK with a facebuster and William Gibson rushes out to replace the original official.  Jeez, Gibson gets bumped next, Spanky headbutting him in the groin when caught with a drop toe hold.  Sliced Bread #2.  Belly to back suplex and both referees are counting the pin.  At two each man lifts a shoulder, but the refs count to three.  Confusion follows, Gibson claiming that King won the match while Johnson has it for Spanky.  The two officials play Tug of War with the belt while the fans chant “fight, fight, fight” at them.  We head to a break none the wiser on the outcome of the match.

Like the Cade & Abs tag match from a fortnight ago, this was too rushed for the time they were given.  I'm never a fan of multiple ref bumps in a match and both were on the weak side.  I suppose it gives them reason to run Spanky/King matches into the new year if nothing else.
