7/25 DYNAMIC DEBUT MONDAY Match of the Day: SID vs John Kronus

by on July 25, 2011

Today’s Match of the Day is, quite certainly, dynamic in its “debutness”. Taking place at the Guilty as Charged pay-per-view event promoted by Extreme Championship Wrestling on January 10, 1999 in Kissimmee, Florida, Sid Vicious goes extreme and makes his ECW debut against John Kronus.

Sid Vicious has never had any issue looking like a monster, but this might be the most monstrous Sid’s ever looked. He went out there looking like this jacked up mountain-man in the denim, he stares down poor Kronus and then throws him through a table right on his head. I’ll give all the credit in the world to John Kronus for being game to let Sid beat him like a tackling dummy. This is also the match that exposed the myth that ECW fans are these ruthless wrestling sophisticates who only liked legitimately talented guys who busted their butts for the cause, as Sid (who’s the epitome of “musclehead mainstream star”) walks into ECW and gets a gigantic reaction unlike anyone else on the show. The whole thing is a spectacle and should be seen if you’ve never seen it before.
