WCW Pro 11/23/1997

Written by: Bob Colling

World Championship Wrestling presents Pro
Date: 11/23/1997
From: Orlando, FL

Matches:
1.) Fit Finley defeated Barry Houston
2.) Barry Darsow defeated Dusty Wolfe
3.) Vincent defeated Sgt. Buddy Lee Parker
4.) Jim Duggan defeated Frankie Lancaster
5.) WCW Cruiserweight Champion Eddie Guerrero defeated Juventud Guerrera

Angle Developments/Notes:
1.) This show aired the same day as World War III.

2.) Vincent earns a rare win with a cobra clutch on Parker. At least Vincent is above someone in the pecking order that isn’t a Cruiserweight.

3.) Guerrero takes Guerrera down with a headlock, but Guerrera breaks free with a head scissors. Guerrera arm drags Guerrero and Guerrero complains of a hair pull. Guerrero shoulder blocks Guerrera, but Guerrera comes back with a nice hurricanrana. Guerrera arm drags Guerrero and keeps control of Guerrero’s arm on the mat. Guerrera works over Guerrero and misses a splash in the corner. Guerrero chops Guerrera in the corner to keep control. Guerrero hits a back suplex to drive Guerrera to the mat. Guerrero hits a slingshot senton. Guerrero boot scrapes Guerrera to maintain control of the contest. Guerrero hooks Guerrera to hit a delayed vertical suplex for a two count. Guerrera head scissors Guerrero followed by a tilt a whirl backbreaker. Guerrera hits a northern lights suplex for a near fall. Guerrera hits a springboard spinning heel kick for a near fall. Guerrera slams Guerrero and signals for a 450 splash. Guerrero crotches Guerrera on the top and hits a superplex. Guerrero finishes Guerrera off with a top rope frog splash to win the match. (***. That was a good match and Guerrera looked good in there with Guerrero.)

Final Thoughts:
A fine lead into the World War III pay per view as Guerrero/Guerrera delivered a quality match and we got a rare Vincent win.
