[1996-05-26-WWF-Beware of Dog] Marc Mero vs Hunter Hearst Helmsley


Recommended Posts

This was the feud that brought Sable into the WWF. Even here, it's clear that she's starting to outshine her husband. Mero has the corniest facials, but he can go in the ring, delivering crisp high flying offense. He hits a gorgeous no-handed rolling leg clutch during this match.  Helmsley is working more like a ring general here, who bumps like HBK for Mero during his comeback. He works down Mero's arm and we even see Trips work an armbar on poor Mero. HHH must have been watching his RINGS. This has a slow, methodical yet rewarding build, with Mero's arm letting him down. One moment sees him attempting an backslide, only for him to abort the maneuver when his arm gives him too grief. HHH ends up losing the match after he takes too much time bullshitting Sable on the outside, which allows Mero to slingshot him into the turnbuckle and get the pin.
