You know what? The Austin-Adams feud really is fun. From what I have seen, Stunning Steve is beating some jobber asses, and cutting great promos on Gentleman Chris Adams. Austin's been experimenting with a finisher, alternating between a running shoulder block, and a top rope splash ("Air Austin"). The promos are great. He says things like:
"I went through your school, and I was too good for it. I'm the best in the world. Now, I got two pair of your boots, I've got your dog and I'm having more fun than I ever dreamed possible with Jeannie."
Goddamn. Stunning Steve took a man's woman, AND HIS DOG. He was always Stone Cold. Jeannie often closes the interview, rubbing salt in the fresh verbal wounds Stunning Steve just opened, and she's not great, but she's believable.
Chris Adams new wife, Toni Adams, is now involved evening things up for the Gentleman, and this brings us to this mixed tag team match.
This is chaotic fun. The girls are cat fighting, and Austin and Adams are brawling. Austin's been targeting Adams neck the entire feud, and injures it during a barbed wire match, which I don't know if it was before or after this, but Austin piledrives Adams on the concrete floor here too, and while looking to finish him off with an Air Austin, Toni Adams lays on top of Chris Adams, in a human shield kind of way. Austin don't give a rat's ass, and splashes them both. Toni leaves on a stretcher, and Jeannie tips it over. Jeanie is more Stone Cold than Austin in 1990.
Next interview, Austin isn't apologetic for splashing Toni Adams, as she put herself in that position. The only thing close to a regret for him is, "I'm sorry I didn't break every bone in your stinking back." One other note, Austin is using "take that to the bank," in the same way he would more famously use "and that's the bottom line" in the future.
They do feel bad that Toni is so "uncoordinated" and "fell" off the stretcher, though. The power couple of 1990 doesn't have time to visit her in the hospital so they're preparing a card to send her instead. That card will read:
Get well fast.
You stupid tramp.
Stunning Steve and Jeannie.
The Austin-Adams feud is really heating up.
