123 Kid vs IRS SS 93: was it a botch finish

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

Is there a story to this? 

Watching at the time I was shocked that in his first ppv match the 'miracle' kid gets pinned clean after a flying clothesline in. Quick time?? 

The result didn't make sense. Kid was hot and had beaten Razor (turning Razor face done the line) and Dibiase. 

If IRS had cheated I'd understand. 

It was a stiff as hell flying clothesline though. I always thought he'd knocked Waltman senseless with it and picked up an unbooked win. 

Ive never watched a Waltman shoot, is it ever mentioned?

I assume it was the planned finish.

IRS's finisher was the flying clothesline which was named "The Write-Off" to fit the gimmick. I doubt there's anything more to it.

Wrestler loses to finishing move.

I blame WWF fans for the fact that every time a commentator said Denis Irwin's name during a United match my brain would immediately start going "IRRRRRRRRRRRWIIIIIIIIN!"

I think the Kid has said he was getting a bit of an ego at the time given his push and launched too readily into misbehaving and ribs, so the loss here was to keep his ego in check.
