I remember watching Dustin when I was growing up and I constantly be like "God Damn that match was great!" without ever really realizing that it was Dustin making it great.

 

Luckly a lot of his dark period came while I was in college and what not so I got to ignore chunks of it.

 

Then he came back and this miracle Goldust run where he is quite often the best worker in the company and you are like "Oh now I get it..."

 

He needs to never stop wrestling

 

 

This isn't the King of Cable semis match which is motherfucking awesome. I mean this is still great but someone needs to find me that.

 

 

So many guys I love

 

This was fitting considering the time of the year

Dustin busting out a motherfucking plancha onto Vader and Harley is awesome, as is both guys completely ignoring Bill Watts' top rope rule in consecutive matches. When Hayes says "Imagine that man swinging a chair" right after Vader clotheslines Dustin I thought out loud "I'd rather be hit with the chair". 

 

I bet Watts would have loved to have Dustin in Mid-South.
