WCW Pro 1/6/1996

World Championship Wrestling presents Pro
Date:
1/6/1996
From: Orlando, FL

Matches:
1.) Disco Inferno defeated Dave Sullivan
2.) Meng defeated Julio Sanchez
3.) Ric Flair, Arn Anderson, Brian Pillman & Chris Benoit defeated Men At Work, Frankie Lancaster & Joey Maggs
4.) Lord Steven Regal & Earl Robert Eaton defeated Eddie Jackie & Vern Henderson
5.) Jim Duggan fought Big Bubba Rogers to a no contest

Angle Developments/Notes:
1.) Inferno comes out and declares to kill the rabbit before his match with Sullivan. They shake hands, but Sullivan squeezes Inferno’s hand and delivers a clothesline. Sullivan jabs Inferno, but is stopped by a back suplex. The cameraman messes up Inferno’s hair from the apron and Sullivan gets the win with a rollup. (NR. It’s hardly a match, but I must say the finish was kind of funny and I don’t think I’ve ever seen a regular cameraman get involved in such a way.)

2.) Julio Sanchez would be better known as Julio Dinero. No matter his name, he got dominated by Meng this week on WCW Pro.

3.) Duggan works over Rogers with jabs to start the match staggering Rogers. Duggan nails Rogers with a clothesline to send Rogers to the floor. Rogers returns to the ring and knee lifts Duggan, but Duggan rams Rogers into the corner. They awkwardly go to the floor where Duggan sends Rogers into the ring post face first. Rogers takes his shoe off and decks Duggan with it, which the referee didn’t see. Roger covers Duggan leading to a near fall. Duggan gets a second wind, but Rogers punches Duggan on the side and delivers a splash over the middle rope. Duggan decks Rogers with a few right hands to stagger Rogers. Rogers clotheslines Duggan in the corner to gain the upper hand. Rogers splashes Duggan in the corner. Rogers keeps Duggan on the mat with a chin lock. Rogers boots Duggan coming off the ropes for a two count. Rogers tries to use the ropes for leverage, but Duggan kicks out anyway. Rogers tries for a suplex, but Duggan punches free. Rogers delivers a strike to the ribs and shoulder rams Duggan int the corner several times before putting a sleeper on Duggan again. Duggan fights out with elbow strikes, but Rogers uppercuts Duggan. Duggan decks Rogers to the mat, but misses a knee drop. Rogers elbow drops Duggan on the knee a few times. Rogers keeps control of the knee, but Duggan bites his way free.

Rogers decks Duggan over the back and Duggan rolls to the floor to regroup. Duggan fights back with right hands on the floor, but Duggan sends Rogers into the ring post face first. Duggan collides with Rogers on a shoulder block and both men are down. Rogers wraps his fist, but the referee sees that as Duggan grabs his 2×4. The referee calls for the bell. Duggan goes to the floor and attacks Rogers with more right hands as they brawl backstage. (*. I’m assuming this was a no contest since nobody actually used an illegal weapon. It was a mostly lifeless match with the crowd not really responding to the action. This kind of finish makes me feel like we’ll see these two in the ring again.)

Final Thoughts:
It’s a skippable show with the feature matches not being all that good. The enhancement matches were decent, but there just wasn’t enough here to make this worthwhile.

Thanks for reading.
