MALENKO FRIDAY – 6/3 Match of the Day: Kidman vs Dean Malenko

by on June 3, 2011


Today’s Match of the Day comes from the March 9, 1998 edition of WCW Monday Nitro, as Dean faced Billy Kidman. This was really soon after Kidman joined the Flock, as you can see by the fact that they had him come through the entrance set instead of the crowd. It’s a bit more scrappy of a fight than your usual WCW late-90’s cruiserweight match, with the way both guys would frantically fight for their holds with forearms and elbows. You also get an appearance of Dean’s epic top rope gutbuster and Kidman busts out the original Seven Year Itch (for a couple of weeks, that’s how they referred to his Michinoku Driver).
