Colin Delaney vs. Ethan Page
In the tradition of lovable losers like Barry Horowitz, Mikey Whipwreck and Spike Dudley, Colin Delaney debuted in WWE in 2007 as a jobber. From there he was taken under the wing of Tommy Dreamer then turned on Dreamer for no apparent reason and then was fired.
For those who were left wondering whatever happened to him, well this clip is for you. The AIW commentators play up Delaney’s past alcohol abuse in this match a ton. Likewise, the match itself is filled with spots akin to those seen in the CM Punk/Chris Jericho feud last year. As for how Colin is holding up physically, he displays numerous impressive high-flying moves as the bout unfolds. These spots include a suicide dive (where he is caught) and a sweet stunner variation off of the ropes. Colin also manages to get a good reaction from the crowd and his lovable loser persona is still intact. This is made clear when a “*expletive* him up Colin” chant breaks out while Colin is the one actually getting pounded.
Throughout the match, Page’s valet, Seleziya Sparx attempts to distract Colin with a bottle of champagne. When this proves to be less than fruitful she throws it in his face and Page capitalizes onthe distraction by hitting a variation of the Rock bottom.
