As the match neared the finish Savage continued his cheating ways, grabbing Steamboat by his trunks on several occasions. Eventually Steamboat picked up the victory and Taz informs that this match followed the age-old recipe for booking matches. The babyface out-wrestles the heel but is put in a precarious position due to the heel’s cheating. Eventually the babyface finds a way to overcome the odds and picks up the win.
After re-watching the match all these years later, Taz says that this match certainly was not overrated. Savage and Steamboat both displayed athleticism and innovation that changed the wrestling business.
Taz says he wasn’t lucky enough to know Savage but he has met Steamboat in the past. He informs that Steamboat is still giving back to the business through working for WWE behind the scenes, and meeting with fans at conventions.
That sums up today’s episode of The Taz Show. You can listen to the show yourself anytime here, and I’ll catch ya next week for another recap!
