Lynn vs. Lightning

Since I posted about GWF yesterday I thought I would follow it up by posting about a match from the company’s most cutting edge feud, Jerry Lynn vs. The Lightning Kid. As you can tell by Lynn’s promo the feud was ahead of its time in terms of in-ring work and not promo ability. Check out Lynn hyping the match. He looks as excited as Sycho Sid used to be! That is if Sycho Sid took 12 Ambien and wasn’t excited at all.

Yet, the in-ring work rises above anything else in this clip. In addition to a chopfest (slapfest?) you have some aerial maneuvers that were at the time seldom seen. In 1991 you just didn’t have guys regularly performing this kind of wrestling on a big stage in the United States.
