MALENKO FRIDAY – 5/6 Match of the Day: Blue Bloods vs Chris Benoit & Dean Malenko

by on May 6, 2011

It’s Friday, we’ve got to get our Cloverleaf on!

Today’s Match of the Day on Malenko Friday comes from the pre-Halloween Havoc 1995 edition of WCW Main Event, as Dean teams up with Chris Benoit to face Lord Steven Regal and Earl Robert Eaton, collectively known as the Blue Bloods. Malenko and Benoit had just debuted in World Championship Wrestling the previous month and hadn’t really found their place, but were having really good undercard matches. Benoit and Regal had a tremendous match in Japan earlier that year and got to show off their tremendous chemistry. The only off point of the entire bout was Bobby Eaton, who didn’t quite jive with the other three’s style (nothing more evident than when Malenko went for a double-team move on Eaton that involved a powerbomb and Eaton either couldn’t or wouldn’t go up for him, so we almost had a Lesnar/Holly-like moment).
