Monday Night Open Mic

Howdy Blog O’Doomers!

Hope everyone had a great weekend and is having as good a Monday as the law allows.

I finally sucked it up and watched Starrcade 1989. Truth be told I really enjoyed it. Sometimes absence makes the heart grow fonder. And for those who want star ratings on that sort of thing.

Steiners/Doom — **3/4. First in a line of solid matches between the two teams.

Luger/Sting — ** seemed rushed, don’t know why these two never had one really good match.

Warriors/Doom — * didn’t work as a power match like I thought it would because the Road Warriors aren’t the best at selling.

Flair/Muta — *1/2 It lasted like 90 seconds but they did a lot and I would have been sold on seeing a longer match between the two.

Steiners/Warriors — ***1/4 Damn good power match. Crowd sucked but the guys were beating the shit out of each other. Not sure why the Warriors couldn’t do that with Doom.

Sting/Muta — *** Not as good as they could do. Muta tried fairly hard for being treated like shit on this card.

Samoans/Doom — *** This was like Jim Ross’ wet dream. Four hosses just hossing the piss out of each other. The headbutt duel between Rikishi and Reed was great.

Luger/Flair — **** Heck of a match after the feeling out process. These two worked their formula well even with Luger playing the heel.

Samoans/Steiners — **1/2 I didn’t always like the SST/Steiners matches but both guys worked hard.

Luger/Muta — **1/2 Luger was selling an injury. They did the speed vs. power dynamic well.

Warriors/Samoans — DUD Both teams seemed pretty exhausted by now.

Sting/Flair — ****1/4 Possibly the second best match these two ever had behind Clash 1.

That’s all I got. Enjoy RAW or Gotham or Supergirl or whatever. Just keep it clean!
