Just Plain Nasty!
The Hart Foundation was absolutely beloved by this crowd. The crowd lived and died by everything The Hart Foundation did in this match. Bret was basically fully formed as an in-ring wrestler by this point. He had all his signature moves down, the crowd knew them, and he was about five months away from his first IC title reign. Based on his pre-match promo, Bret still needed a little bit of work on those. He would get a lot better on the mic. Anvil was Anvil. He didn’t evolve much during the years. He did what he did, and it mostly worked for him.
The Nasty Boys were underrated. Them and Jimmy Hart where are entertaining cartoon villain act right out of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. They were very enjoyable on those short pre-taped promos in my opinion. They weren’t bad in the ring either. Not amazing even by the standards of the day, but they held their own in the ring. They were in the right place at the right time for the Hart Foundation, and their brawling was decent.
People often say that Jimmy Hart’s best work was in Memphis Wrestling, which it was, but that the rest of his career wasn’t Hall Of Fame level. I disagree. The man was doing mid-card work because he was booked as a mid-card heel in WWF, but he gave main event level effort every time out. He customized his look to fit whatever act he was managing, he came up with fun catchphrases, he produced theme music, he was highly entertaining at ringside, even being involved in great finishes such as this one. The man was underutilized, but he was not under-performing.
Overall, this was an entertaining match. It went just the right amount of time, and it was fun. A simple, but effective tag match that was very well laid out and made everyone involved look like a million bucks. Nasty Boys pick up the win and the titles with a Megaphone shot.
