The heel team would actually not be a bad faction at all if they had hung together until Heenan came to New York. First couple minutes are very strong with the heels making the crowd pop huge for the Samoans as faces. It's all for not as one of the ring ropes breaks pretty quickly and we're left with a trainwreck not even Murdoch can salvage. For a minute there it seems like the whole ring is coming down but they keep working. To their credit, Adonis and Murdoch adapt on the spot and cut the ring in half to do arm work. It's not quite the clusterfuck it could have been and the heels even use the broken ropes to their advantage. The faces finally get a tag and decide to just say fuck it and everyone comes in to distract the ref and eventually Studd gets a cover. Not very coherent besides some typical Adonis/Murdoch goodness, but the Samoans were very over and could have been highly effective in this role. *1/4
