Throwback Thursday- Samoa Joe vs Necro Butcher

I had meant to post this on the actual anniversary of the match itself, but sadly, it came on the day of the passing of Dusty Rhodes so I held off on talking about this until now.

Years ago the promotion known as IWA-Mid South had worked their way east into Philadelphia holding a show in the infamous Viking Hall aka the old ECW arena.  And they made their debut in a big way having the main event of Samoa Joe vs the Necro Butcher. It was a very random main event, but it was one that was a very popular discussion topic on different wrestling messageboards and the match delivered.  Quite simply it was an all out brawl.  Even CM Punk came out to do color commentary with Eddie Kingston and Dave Prazak.
