A no-doubter for me. Best match I've seen in WCW. Best Iron Man match ever.

A contender, and a great use of the iron man gimmick. Steamboat is his usual great self, but Rude was in the middle of a monster 1992 run and is on fire throughout the match. The spot where he attempts his characteristic gyrating but can't do it fully because he's selling his hurt ribs is wrestling in a nutshell.

Loved this match when we went through it with STR because it was so smart. I love the move of Rude getting ahead and then "sacrificing" a fall to a DQ in order to inflict more damage (as this was the Watts era, top rope offensive moves were inexplicably banned)

Great psychology throughtout this match. 92 Rude doesn't get nearly enough love from people who only remember the Jake the Snake WWF feud.
