Two of my favorites and two of the best at the sub five minute TV match. Stevie gets some offense and looks credible against Kozlov, before getting cut down.

This match is from Super Brawl Revenge. Very underrated show from the dying days of the WCW.
It is suppose to be DDP vs Jarrett, but DDP made an open challenge to Kanyon and Jarrett says Kanyon wants to fight now.
Kanyon and DDP have a hell of a match. It is a shame to see how Kanyon's career went and how it impacted his life.
A great wrestler who deserved better than he got.

Both Taylor and Jake are good guys here. Well as much of a good guy as Jake Roberts can be. Jim Ross and Joel Watts on commentary, both do a good job on getting you up to date on the storylines here.
Dick Slater is North American Champion and says he'll defend against the number one contender. So we are having this match.
Taylor and Jake do a good job at setting a tempo. Early on, Taylor hits a five arm on Jake. Jake smartly gets to the floor.
Terry has the advantage once Jake is in the ring. One of the best things about Jake Roberts is he can take control of the match suddenly. Whether it be a knee lift or his short arm clothesline. Or he can hit the DDT suddenly,
Very much living up to the "Snake" moniker.
Match has a good finishing sequence that makes everyone look strong.

This is the rematch with Taker and Kozlov. This time Taker goes full power on Kozlov from the start and it throws off the Russian.
This match is different than the first one. This is both guys dropping bombs. Kozlov does this really cool escape from Hell's Gate.
This match is from late 08. They are doing a beat the clock challenge to determine the number one contender. Jeff Hardy has the best time and Kozlov is up next. He gets Matt Hardy (who is ECW Champion), Matt's main goal is to make sure Kozlov does not beat Jeff's time.
It is like a TV Title match with Matt trying to run the clock down. He does not try to fight Kozlov directly many times. Instead he picks his spots. The finishing sequence does a great job teasing the fans.
Came across this on Youtube. I think Kozlov and Luke Gallows are my two favorite guys of the last five years.
Good cat and mouse game between Kozlov and Taker. Each realizing brute force can't work, so they focus on tactics.
Kozlov makes a basic headlock look like a finisher. Have not seen anybody work basic holds so effectively in a long time.
Finish is great and I am not going to spoil it.

Disco Inferno vs. Disciple by Stinger1981
Brutus comes out in his old Barber gear to take on Disco Inferno. He looks good here and works hard. He does a nice looking cross body off the second rope.
He ends up jobbing to the Disco Stunner, which shows where he was on the pecking order.

WCW Mean Mark(Undertaker) vs Pillman by Matthew_Hennigan77
Came across this earlier. Very good match with Pre Undertaker Mean Mark and Brian Pillman.
Taker has the size advantage, but Pillman is so tenacious, you buy him being able to over come the size advantage.
Taker is able to toss around Pillman with ease and block anything he throws initially.

This is a hell of a sub five minute match. Masked guys attack Nasty Boys before the bell and work over Knobbs. Dusty and Macho Man on commentary.
Stevie and Val have a kick ass match on Heat. Why the announcers actually talked about it once or twice.
Stevie is the king of the WWE B show. Leave him alone and he kicks ass. Here he calls out Raven and they have a really good five minute match that is all action. With Raven acting more like Johnny Polo/Scotty Flamingo than Raven.
