This week’s Throwback Thursday is a match from an episode of WCW Power Hour from 1989. The storyline is that the Samoan Swat Team was supposed to battle the Road Warriors in a steel cage, but Paul E. Dangerously had “lost” his Samoans somewhere in transit between Samoa and St. Louis, so the ‘Birds were the replacements.
In this particular match, the Freebirds are made up of “Gorgeous” Jimmy Garvin and Terry “Bamm Bamm” Gordy (with Michael “P.S.” Hayes on the outside). It’s a pretty hard-hitting affair between four men who didn’t mind mixing it up and were, arguably, all in their prime.
The other great thing about this match is the incredible commentary (flying solo!) by Jim Ross. For anyone who doesn’t understand why people make such a big deal about Ross, all you have to do is listen to him here.
Enjoy!! And don’t forget about the surprise ending!!
