Your Match of the Night

Tonight's Match is from the first Clash of Champions, March 27th 1988.   This is the 6 man tag team match featuring the World Six Man Tag Team Champions, Dusty Rhodes and The Road Warriors vs the Powers of Pain with Ivan Koloff.
You will notice Animal is wearing a "mask" to protect his eye that was actually hurt in a match with the Powers of Pain when the Barbarian dropped all his weight on Animals head.  This broke his orbital bone, fractured his skull, broke his cheek bone and his nose.  After surgery and time off he came back with the mask and it was the focus of most of his matches for several weeks including this one.  He didnt actually have any physical contact until he completely healed and the mask was just a prop for buildup in his matches.
