DYNAMIC DEBUT MONDAY – 7/18 Match of the Day: Yokozuna vs Bill Jordan

by on July 18, 2011

Today in Match of the Day on Dynamic Debut Monday, we go all the way back to the October 24, 1992 episode of WWF Superstars as Yokozuna makes his WWF debut facing Bill Jordan.

It’s a testament to Yokozuna how he didn’t even do more than five moves, yet he makes a tremendous first impression. Everything he does looks like it kills poor Jordan and there’s a presence about Yokozuna that you can’t teach. The second he walked down the aisle, he was a spectacle unto himself (and if you didn’t “get it”, the WWF shoves it in your face by cutting to camera shots of fans in awe and shooting pictures of him). It’s insane to think that he was the top heel in the company within six months, but that’s what happens when you have an instant top star aura and the company is lacking in depth.
