Friday Night Videos

Facebuster Nation, it's time for another installment of Friday Night Videos, Arabian Facebuster's weekly foray into the sqaured circles of yesteryear. Before introducing this week's clip, for the record, I want to state unequivocally that in spite of offering alternative Friday night rasslin' content for yr consumption and actual enjoyment, Arabian Facebuster is in no way looking to compete with or chip into the apathetic viewership and steady if unspectacular market share of the WWE Friday Night Smackdown sportz entertainment whirling dervish. For how do you compete with the straight edged bromance of CM Punk and his protege Luke Gallows...the rhyming "this" with "this" and "at" with "that" tendencies of Ron Killings...or the stratospheric ascent of Drew McIntyre amongst the WWE Universe and, equally significant, as a subject of adoration for one Bunny Bissoux?

You don't my friends. You just don't.

With that said, let's go to the ring and check out Tully Blanchard and Arn Anderson in tag-team competition. Their opponents...dynamic jobber firebrands Bob Emory and Max Macgyver (if you believe the announcer who I am unable to identify for the life of me, Chance McQuade if you trust the video uploader). To the surprise of no one, Tully and Arn squash this synchronized schlong cutted duo in short order with their trademark barrage of fists n' kicks' n' elbows spliced with some innovative double team maneuvers.

Based on the white/grey ring ropes and turnbuckles and the fact that Blanchard and Anderson were identified as Tag Team Champions, this National Wrestling Alliance action took place very early in 1988, or in the late Spring/Summer of that year.

And a bonus, I have also embedded a post-match Arn/Tully Four Horsemen horn tooting, Great American Bash promoting interview for yr enjoyment...albeit from a different bout and TV program than the one featured above.

Toot. Toot.
