Ruthless Aggression Era Project: WWE Velocity Review - August 10th, 2002

WWE Velocity
August 10th, 2002

Commentators: Tazz & Marc Lloyd

Rico is backstage giving Marc Lloyd a haircut/makeover. Hardcore Holly walks up and Rico basically tells him to piss off. Holly retorts by shaving a chunk out of Rico's hair.

1) Tajiri vs. Chavo Guerrero 

They trade holds to start and these two are both good, so it's solid from start to finish. Tajiri sells the leg insanely well. Finish cuts the momentum short though with Tajiri getting DQ'd for spraying Chavo with the green mist.

Match rating - **

2) Funaki vs. Rico

This was whatever. They did stuff for a few minutes and Rico wins.

Match rating - *1/2

3) Mike Awesome vs. Bull Buchanan

So, Mike actually got the opportunity to get some good stuff in during this match and showcased his agility. HOWEVER, the commentators completely shit on this by talking about Rock/Brock/Hogan the literal entire time. GARBAGE.

Match rating - *1/2

4) Hardcore Holly vs. Albert

Another complete throwaway here. Albert attacks Holly before the bell while he's staring out at Marc Lloyd whom he has an obsession with for some reason. Holly sneaks the win after a few minutes of stuff and goes after Lloyd again. Rico, his new personal stylist, makes the save and superkicks Holly to close the show.

Match rating - *1/4

WOW, this show sucked.
