It baffles me in hindsight how Snow was on TV in 1984 for the AWA as a jabroni and somehow didn't get used during the ugly down turn in business once mid 1986 hit. He was from Ohio, so he could have easily done a Midwest loop. Maybe his personality and ring work hadn't been fleshed out to the point where he could hang with Mitch Snow, Ricky RIce, Derrick Dukes, Steve O, etc as a scrawny guy on the undercard.
I had a recent conversation with another rasslin fan about how bizarre it is that WWF brought Ronnie Garvin pretty much solely to feud with Greg Valentine. Bringing in someone just to feud with a top guy, I can sort of make sense of that but just to feud him with a midcard (and falling) guy like The Hammer? It doesn't make any sense. Then again, I'm drawing a blank as to who else would have been a good opponent for Ronnie Garvin in '89-'90 WWF? He stuck out a sore thumb in that era. Just seemed so dorky and old.
Yet in spite of that, I actually really like their match at Royal Rumble '90!
*Checks notes*Garvin strikes me as an acquisition just to fuck with NWA/WCW. Or maybe as a favor to one of the other Crockett guys. (Or maybe Savage from the ICW days?)
