So I've fallen behind again, and really have no excuse. Laziness, I guess.

Anyway, back to the old grind and I can hopefully finish out this month here on my quiet day.

Match of the Day #25
January 25, 1997


From WCW Souled Out, available on the WWE Network.

United States Championship, Ladder Match: 'The Ultimate Swinger' Syxx(c) vs. 'Mexican Jumping Bean' Eddie Guerrero

Eric Bischoff and Ted Dibiase are your commentators because we don't get to have nice things in WCW. Eddie comes out to no music being called a loser. This PPV was such a terrible idea. Syxx gets NWA B-Team music with Iowa ring rat housewives dancing. Well, at least Scott Hall got laid that night, I guess. Waltman is fully into X-Pac look here and the crowd reacts for neither guy. Bischoff makes Michael Cole's heel announcing seem appealing.

Eddie attacks before the bell, but gets chopped by Waltman and taken down with a backleg round kick. Syxx chops and punches away on the ropes. They screw up a backbreaker sequence, and Eddie comes back with uppercuts and a tilt-a-whirl headscissors. Backbreaker by Eddie, and he follows with a crossbody from the top to the floor. Back in Eddie sends Sean into the corner, but runs into a knee and heads up. Eddie stops, and goes up for a rana, but gets kicked off and Waltman hits a spinkick from the second rope. They have some stupid wire cam that they keep switching to. Chop in the corner and a step up kick from Syxx. Bronco buster by Syxx, and he steps up and drops a boot to the chest. Eddie flips off a backdrop attempt and dropkicks Syxx to the outside. Eric bitches about karate. Syxx is back on the apron, and blocks an Eddie suplex and suplexes Eddie on the floor. He didn't really protect him great there, either. Syxx follows with a flip plancha. Waltman goes for the ladder. Waltman is struggling to carry the damn thing, but runs through Eddie with the ladder anyway. Syxx and Nick Patrick set up the ladder on the apron, but Eddie blocks him bringing it in, and drops down to have the ladder hit Waltman in the chin. The camera misses it, of course, because WCW. Slingshot boot by Eddie and the fans chant for him. Eddie hits Syxx with the ladder and sits it up in the corner. Eddie chops away. Irish whip into the ladder is reversed though, and Eddie crashes into the ladder. The fans chant for Eddie again. Syxx puts the ladder on the Eddie, and stomps down. Flapjack on the ladder by Syxx, and Eddie landed knee first on the damn thing. Syxx sets up the ladder in the corner and hits a floatover vertical and climbs...but Eddie pops up and gets hit low. I notice a Drew Bledsoe jersey in the crowd. Syxx sets up the Shawn ladder riding spot, but Eddie dropkicks the ladder and Syxx crotches himself. Eddie goes up and hits a big superplex. Eddie finally sets the ladder up under the belt and climbs. Syxx is up and climbs the other side. That belt is waaaay up there. Syxx gets a jumping enziguri to knock both down. Waltman has said he didn't really think that spot through and just decided to do it on the fly. It looked great, though.

Both slowly make it to their feet and climb. Punch exchange on the ladder and Syxx takes Eddie down, but he stumbles back into the ladder to knock Syxx down as well. Eddie is up first and slowly climbs the ladder. Syxx grabs the leg, but gets kicked off. Eddiue follows and hits a big uppercut. Eddie climbs again and Syxx crawls to the other side. They both grab the belt, and Eddie hits Syxx with it, Syxx falls and Eddie wins the title.

Well, that was...fine. Bad commentary, pretty meh crowd and they didn't go overboard on the bumps. No real selling or anything, though, so it's just...a match. In the context of the entire show, it's probably much better, but as a one off, meh. **1/2.

january 26th: kenta kobashi vs akira taue

alright so i fell behind a bit. luckily witlon didnt get anywhere ahead of me, so we're pretty much just back at square one. went on a bit of a drinking binge for about a 2 week span. but im back on all my weight lifting supps, and hope to catch up pretty quickly on all this again, while trying to balance in some draft scouting. i have not been advancing well on that either.

Yeah, I'm...coming along. Weird couple of weeks. I've got the Network matches done for January, just have to run the YTs.

Hopefully that'll happen next week, but we'll see how sleep and life go.
