293. Ravishing Rick Rude (w/ Bobby the Brain Heenan) vs. Superfly Jimmy Snuka

WrestleMania VI
April 1, 1990
Toronto, ON

Hard to believe that this match happened on the last PPV before Rude would be #1 contender for the World Title.

Stuck in a dead spot on the card, a steroid jacked Snuka controlled a steroid jacked Rude for most of the early going. When Snuka finally misses a second rope splash, Rude needs just a single move in his Rude Awakening neckbreaker to get the three. Awkwardly, Snuka stands right up after the pin, hardly selling the finish at all.

An altogether wasteful use of the man they were pushing toward being Warrior’s SummerSlam opponent.
