As a wrestling match, Homicide and Kevin Steen was solid. As a storytelling device, it was amazing.
Kevin Steen focused on Homicide’s ear, exacting vengeance for the damage Homicide caused Steve Corino’s ear many years ago. While it didn’t improve the match, it showed the unity of Team SCUM.
Steen showed us that he doesn’t need junk matches to entertain. The man can wrestle. Toward the end of the match, he hit a super fisherman buster, a move I have never seen before. I actually shouted at the television.
It also highlighted why Rhino is an excellent choice to face Steen.
Steen beat Davey Richards at Best in the World with a massive amount of interference. He beat Eddie Edwards with interference. He beat Eddie Kingston with interference.
This time, a Jimmy Jacobs distraction allowed Steen to low blow Homicide, leading to an F-Cinq and a victory.
Maybe we need a fox to guard the henhouse. Who knows about interfering in matches better than the House of Truth?
They even outnumber Team SCUM. It makes perfect sense for Cornette to give the House of Truth this opportunity.
