269. Bad News Brown vs. “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan

WrestleMania V
April 2, 1989
Trump Plaza
Atlantic City, NJ

Close your eyes.

Now imagine a match between Bad News Brown and Jim Duggan.

Was it a stiff potato-fest ending in a double DQ? Then guess what, you just watched this match. It could not be less surprising when both men grab a weapon after about three minutes of power blows.

They charge at each other, Bad News with a steel chair and Duggan with his trademark 2×4, crashing them in to each other. Referee Tim White disqualifies both men. Brown storms off after being taken down by Hacksaw. Duggan then sits in the chair and eggs on the crowd before swatting the chair away with his wood.

No surprises here, and nothing to make one want to find and watch this match.
