Match Thoughts: It was interesting during this time period as Muta was switching from being a singles wrestler to more of a faction wrestler. And that is not to say he didn't still have singles matches of course but he was no longer the main focus, the faction feud was the focus. Which I think hurt him a bit, as he was sharing the spotlight with the likes of Sawyer and Dragonmaster, two wrestlers that I do not like nearly as much as I like Muta. Also, Starrcade was coming up and it would have been nice if he had gotten more of a boost since Muta was one of the singles wrestlers in the tournament. But Muta was still fun to watch here, especially when he ran over and randomly kicked Fargo off the apron. For a pretty short lived stable that most people don't remember, J-Tex was getting a lot of time on Saturday Night from October to February. Score: 3.5
