I'd heard that 'Quake could do one but had never seen it that I could recall. Here we see him do it (good elevation, too!) as well as Tugboat coming back with one of his own. Good stuff.
Insane dropkick Quake got some serious hops man! First time I watched the video, I thought Quake was doing a Shining Wizard to Tugboat... That had to be at least a 4 foot high dropkick, man that was awesome... Quake needs to be inducted into the HOF asap, I mean why is the Fridge' getting inducted before Quake??? WTF?!?!
Where is the logic in that???
Quake> Michael Jordan
[EDIT]: Sorry I meant Enziguiri, not a shining wizard...

I'll be honest, I didn't expect much from this match. I don't like big men matches. It's often just plain brawling, without much logic.
But this match, was actually pretty good. I liked Quake and Tugboat being equally matched and Quake had to take a risk to get Tugboat down. Which was a very nice dropkick. And then he could dominate him on the ground, but when Tugboat got up, both of them were equally matched again.
I liked that, it was a good, logical match. Matches like these can showcase a big wrestlers talent, because they can't just dominate and punch the smaller guy. They have to work to take each other down. And Quake Boat did that very well.

I have to ask, once Tugboat turned heel, were there ever any vignettes/announcements on his change from Tugboat to Typhoon, or was he just a sailor one week and a Natural Disaster the next?
I think it was a 6-man tag where it was the Bushwhackers/Tugboat vs. Nasty Boys (I think) and Earthquake, and somehow during the match Tugboat turned on the Bushwhackers, leading to the Summerslam 91 match between the two teams.
That something as inherently ridiculous and trashy as wrestling should be analysed in such an obsessive and cynical manner. It's just a bit of fun!
The match where Tugboat turned heel took place at a WWF Superstars taping on May 28, 1991 in Tucson, AZ. According to The History of WWE, Tugboat kept wrestling under the gimmick until the match aired on June 15, 1991. At the very same taping, the Natural Disasters debuted with a win over Bob Abbott and Bill Sampson in 2:30 after a big Typhoon splash and a Quake Splash. That match aired on the June 29, 1991 episode. Earlier on that taping, Jake Roberts and Jim Duggan defeated the Disasters, with that match taking place BEFORE the match where Tugboat turned.
