Dusty Rhodes & Nikita Koloff vs. Rick Rude & Manny Fernandez from Mid-Atlantic 1987

Post by TJ Hawke:

This was a quarterfinal match from the 1987 Jim Crockett Sr. Memorial Cup.

The NWA World Tag Team Champions dominated Dusty and Nikita for the great majority of this match. While this match greatly suffered from having no real shine for the babyfaces early on, you get to see Dusty play face-in-peril for a five or six minutes. I’ve always enjoyed Dusty in that role. The finish did not look great though: Dusty kind of reversed a diving crossbody attempt from Fernandez into a pin to pick up the win. You do not need to watch this one. (*3/4)
