George W. Bush, the 43rd President of the United States, once famously said, “Rarely is the question asked: Is our children learning?” Yet, even rarer is the question asked why the villain from “No Holds Barred” would wrestle The Madman From The Sudan in Puerto Rico.
Yes, this is a random pairing that sees Zeus go outside of the ring to confront Abdullah The Butcher before the match even starts. At least the ring announcer stays professional and follows procedure by giving introductions as the two are walloping each other. Giving props where they are do, I have to admit that seeing Zeus get Abby in a bear up and lift him off the ground is pretty awesome…conversely, the rest of the match isn’t. Dragging on, the encounter consists of a lot of chokes, the two slowly bumping into each other and grinding. Hey! Get a room you two!
Tommy “Tiny” Lister’s in-ring career would not last long so there are only a handful of matches that have Zeus popping up. Too bad because if Zeus had a couple of Wrestlemania paydays maybe he would’ve been less inclined to commit mortgage fraud.
