FIRE RUSSO *clap, clap, clap-clap-clap*
For all three parts, click on the words. Audio sync is off and video quality is shoody, but it's the best I could find. Also, help the guy achieve his dream of having 1M views...lol
Gimmick matches, by their very nature, are wrestling matches with added stuff around. By this logic, this is a GIMMICK gimmick match. The gimmick being the electicity, the other gimmick being the cage. So, why not combine them? You'd get the ELECTRIFIED CAGE MATCH!!!!!!
THIS IS TEH AWESUM! BEST GIMMICK MATCH EVA!!!!!!
This was thought out by one Vincent J. Russo, so you know where this is heading. First off, they had to kill the house lights and only illuminate the ring with blue lights to give a feeling of the fact that the cage is electrified. While the premise was good, it did have another effect: it made the match tough to see in-person. While PPV viewers didn't have to suffer, if you're stuck in the cheap seats, you'd resort to buying the DVD because it was too dark and the blue light actually obstructed the ring. Second, the cage wasn't really electrified (because why would actually want to intentially kill your talent for the sake of the fans' entertainment?), and to simulate electric shock, when a wrestler touches the cage, the effects guy pushes the button to flicker the lights. This was a bad idea on paper with an even worse execution. Naturally, the fans would agree. There's even a point where Hernandez would grab rubber gloves to climb the cage, but the effects guy got confused and pressed the button.
Yeesh, that was bad.
Fans agree, by the copius amount of FY-AR ROO-SOO chants. I agree, too, it's fine enough to leave it as a cage match, don't add anything like electricity if you're not really gonna use it.
What's next, two guys wearing a suit and tie, bound together by chain, and have them wrestle each other?
