Rolling Lariat (as if rolling makes it hit harder or something)
Another thing, he is so unbelievably SLOW. He moves at about the Giant's pace. Anyway, more miscellaneous ramblings from the peanut gallery. Later!
You could also say the same thing about Bret Hart, as Wade mentioned "The Five Moves of Doom" in his Nitro report. However, Hart can still put out a good match with a variety of moves despite the fact that he isn't what he used to be in his WWF days.
As a side note, huracanrana translates literally into "hurricane frog" from Spanish.
One of my favorite matches featuring Lane was on a recent WCW Saturday Night in which Lane went up against Lash LeRoux. Not only did he whip out The People's Legdrop, but after pinning LeRoux he immediately jumped up and hugged the ref while jumping in excitement. It was a trip. However, the sad thing is that people will remember him most for tricking Dean Malenko as a Chris Jericho look-a-like.
ARENA REPORT! C. Hill sends the following (sent last week):
I was at last nights Thunder, and as I got back at 3am, I am just sending in the report. I will just stick to some of the interesting things that I viewed throughout the night. And even though we saw next weeks matches as well, there was nothing that interesting.
Biggest Pops for the night were for the Wolf-pack. Luger, Sting, and Konan in their individual matches equalled that of Flair when he came out. Nice pops, but the run in at the end that included Nash was just numbing. It was so loud in the arena that my ear drums hurt. After Thunder went off the air the Pack stayed in the ring for a good 10 minutes playing around and as the crowd got quieter they did their whole schtick.
The night ended with several things being taped for next week. I won't go into all of them since you can get the results elsewhere, and also it will be on next week. There were a lot of matches taped for next week. About twelve as I remember, including title defenses of Kidman vs. Chavo/Pepe, with Pepe making the pin on Chavo; Jericho vs. Disco, with the liontamer involved; and Greenberg vs. Meng; jack knife time. The whole Meng match was so much better on Nitro. This one was not even taped for next week. 30 seconds and it was over. The main event for next week should be Giant vs. Raven, with Raven receiving a chokeslam through a table. One match was Scott Hall vs. Steve Armstrong. Armstrong got the pin, Hall threatened the ref, put on a double outsiders edge, then pinned Armstrong. Can you say double finish!!! It will be interesting to see what happens on Halloween Havoc.
ARENA REPORT! J.D. Knauer sends the following:
I attended Thunder in Albuquerque NM last night and I thought I would give you my POV arena report. This was my first sporting event of any kind to attend, pretty sad huh? I'm a Freshman at UNM and went with 4 of my friends. Enough BS here is my Arena Report...
My friends and I arrived at the arena around 3:30 to find a mob of Women and children dressed like Sting and Konan. After we went through all of the security pat-downs we entered to but some t-shirts I bought a Hogan "I'm The GOD of wrestling blah blah blah" Shirt which two of my friends got too. I was pissed because they did not have any Jericho shirts. Pezner or Penzer came out and gave his laser light no cuss words on the signs speech. He introduced the announcin team and Heenan got a nice pop. Countdown to TV....
The Super Calo/Mysterio match was good and I was surprised to see the LWO get booed in a city where Latinos are the majority.
DDP came out to do an interview to a mixed reaction of cheers and boos. I booed him, everyone of his interviews consists of him being so jacked and someone gonna feel the "BANG". After the cameras went of he got out of the crowd fast.
Kanyon w/Raven vs Jericho. Hell yeah Jericho is who I paid to see except he did not have the JPS with him. Raven just sat there until he jumped in. I guess this match ended in "Jericho's Rules" where he can make anyone submit. Jericho was the best performer, in my opinion, of the night.
Saturn/Norman Smiley. My friend and I cheered for Black Magic along with about 20 other fans he was real happy to see 2 or 3 signs with his name on it. I heard the Siren song and realized Norman had to job again. Decent match.
Pezner or Penzer (I've seen it spelled both ways so from here on out I'll just call him Master P) Said a member of the Wolfpac was next so I took a nap during the Luger/Riggs match.
Juvi/Iaukea. I expected to see more moves from Juvy. Disco came out. Not very interesting.
Konan/Scott Armstrong. CRAP put the camera in my pocket because it's the one-line wonder. The crowd went nuts because they are all Raza. I'm definitely not bowdy bowdy. I sat through match hoping Scott would start getting a push tonight endind The Curse in NM. Nevermind.
Kendall Windham/Dean Malenko. Finally, Master P said the Horsemen were in the building but its about time. The Iceman showed why he was a Horseman. Then WHOO, They came out to a huge pop, I did not hear what Arn said, people were going nuts. As soon as Flair grabbed the mic I could not stop saying WHOO, I was just glad I got to see Flair in Person. Mongo is fatter up close. Chris Benoit gave me a 5 second stare down for some reason I just stared back and asked my friend if he wanted to jump him. Not really cause he would literally (non-Schiavone use) cripple me.
Main event time. Giant/Sting. Sting got the biggest pop of the night, New Mexico loves Sting. If you are wondering why the crowd was doing a "Goldberg" chant, that is because Master P told the crowd the Main event was Goldberg vs. Meng for the World Title. This match was okay the nWo Hollywood came out then Rick Steiner, then the Wolfpac. After the cameras went off the air the Pac played Grab-Ass in the ring for about another minute or so, Nash did his (Insert City and State here) Wolfpac in the House. Then they Let Konan do his crap one more time, I was still not bowdy bowdy or rowdy rowdy.
Master P came out for the taping of next weeks Thunder. I can't remember all of the matches except we got to see Saturn, Malenko, Jericho (this time with JPS), and Alex Wright wrestle again. Cool matches especially when The Giant chokeslammed Raven through a table. A bunch of marks were saying "I already saw him wrestle tonight." Hey idiots how many times did Master P say "Stay in your seats, we are taping more matches." I thought came in my mind "Marks, marks everywhere, and not a smart on in a seat (except me and maybe 2 more people in the arena.) Goldberg fought Meng, Jackhammer, splat, win.
All in all I thought it was a good show. Plus I got on TV for about half the show.
