|I'm sure it meant more in 1980/1981 because of the angle, but even not knowing what was going on between Dusty and the Assassin, you can get into this angle - sometimes I wonder why WWE can't do the basic "good guy vs bad guy" angle where the bad guy looks strong. This five minute clip had the ability to push house shows in the state for 2-3 months, and they were just running three or four houses! Take this on a national scale the way Vince did with Steamboat vs Savage bell to the throat, or Piper vs Snuka piledriver/chair to throat at MSG. Those angles drew nationwide for months at a time. All based on simplicity like this. This was a great angle.
