Hello everyone! Its time once again for the Scavenger Hunt with me, HobosGhost, bringing more weird and wonderful clips for your viewing pleasure! Once again 5 clips. Ready?
Carlos Colon vs The Great Kokina
Kicking off with a match I planned to post two weeks ago, this is a match from I believe 1991 (hard to find a lot of information) from WWC in Puerto Rico between the top hero (and booker/co-owner) Carlos Colon and The Great Kokina AKA Yokozuna in his pre-WWE days. Rodney Anoa’i made his wrestling debut in 1984 after being trained by his Uncle Afa of the Wild Samoan fame. He worked in Puerto Rico in 1991 as well as for NJPW, the Mexican indie scene, and AWA as the Great Kokina, Giant Kokina, Samoan Kokina, and Kokina Maximus before debuting in the WWE in 1992 as the Japanese Sumo Wrestler Yokozuna. A typical match involving Carlos Colon, the hero in peril, bloody and the underdog, before eventually getting the win. Anoa’i sadly passed away aged 34 on October 23rd 2000 while on a wrestling tour in the UK. Anoa’i was posthumously inducted in the WWE Hall Of Fame in 2012. Colon was inducted in 2014. So here they are,one-on-one in a steel cage match!
Nattie Neidhart vs Amazing Kong
Here we have a match from Japan between WWE’s Natalya and former TNA and WWE wrestler Amazing Kong. Natalya wrestled a two month tour of Japan starting in March 2005. Natalya started her career as a ring announcer in Eric Bischoff’s youth led promotion MatRats in late 2000/2001 before working for her Hart Family’s Stampede Wrestling. During her tour in Japan she had this match with Amazing Kong. Kong (Kia Stevens) trained at the School Of Hard Knocks in California before getting a tryout with All Japan Womens Pro Wrestling. Having battled the likes of Aja Kong and Ayako Hamada amongst others, Kong enjoyed 5 years in Japan between 2002-2007,before working (like Natalya) for Shimmer. A good little match here which involves a brawl in the crowd, both would go on to big acclaim for WWE and TNA respectively.
