Remember how I said Randy Savage cut some of the best promos ever?
Well, this….. Isn’t one of them.
Why was No Hold’s Barred awesome you ask?
“Dookie,” that’s why:
*ANYWAY* In a brilliant cross-promotional move, Zeus was brought off the silver-screen and into the real-life WWF ring to feud with Hogan.
Despite this, the actual culmination of the feud, and the match that the promo above was for; was a steel cage rematch at an event titled No Holds Barred, once again in cross-promotion of the movie of the same name.
While I can’t speak for the quality of the matches, (I’ve heard they weren’t so great…) as I mentioned before, as and you can most likely plainly tell, the promo I posted above is pretty fuckin’ stupid.
Sure, Macho Man is his usual cool-ass self, constantly shouting “NOOOOUUUU HOLDS BARRRRRED!!!” at the top of his lungs and yanking on the cage like a mad-man; but in all honesty, the whole thing is about as organized as a soccer hooligan stampede.
I hate to lay the blame on him, ’cause let’s face it, Deebo’s the shit; but I feel that Mr. Lister really dropped the ball in this promo.
He does well enough to keep the intensity flowing, with his crazy eyes and sporadic yelling, but there’s just too many moments where you can tell Macho Man’s got something he’s trying to say, when out of nowhere big Deebo screams and completely drowns him out.
Hell, by the end, when Sherri joins in and everybody’s yelling at once, you really can’t make out a damn word of it.
Needless to say, timing is not one of Deebo’s strong suits.
Well, except for maybe “NOOOOUUUU HOLDS BARRRRRED!!!”
Anyway, I thought this was silly, so I figured I’d share it with you all.
Shut up. I do not have writer’s block…
