[1987-03-29-WWF-Wrestlemania III] Don Muraco & Bob Orton vs Tom Zenk & Rick Martel


Recommended Posts

This felt like the last hurrah for guys who looked like Orton and Muraco as we are coming to a time where Vince wanted guys who looked like Warrior and Savage and not workers who were stocky and pudgy. Despite them not looking like a superstar in the landscape of 1987 WWF, Orton and Muraco were great at cutting off Zenk and Martel and bumping for them in that entertainingly corny 80's way. Monsoon refers to Zenk as the 'Excellence Of Execution' and Orton's long-term wrist injury has finally healed as he's cast-free here. This was an enjoyable match to open the card and the finish was quite creative, with Muraco accidentally back body dropping his own tag partner!
