Robocop and Pro Wrestling don't mix!

Capital Combat (1990) was the card that featured Ric Flair defending "Big Goldie" against the ultimate "choker" Lex Lugar. The two settle their differences within the confines of a steel cage!! This is to keep the Four Horsemen from beating the snot out of Flexy Lexy and helping the "Nature Boy" keep his precious belt. Sting was supposed to receive his long awaited title shot against Ric Flair but a near crippling beatdwon from the Horsemen put the Stinger out of action and into traction. But he ignored the doctors and showed up at the event (in crutches) and was giving his usual promo when the Horsemen and newest member Sid Vicious showed up and they were about puke him out again until Robocop showed up.

Robocop? It's as lame as it sounds. The horsemen ran off with their tail between their legs. Afraid of some bad no named actor in a plastic suit. Everyone was selling Robocop as if he was a real person instead of a character in a movie. It was bad, real bad. Even the great announcer Gordon Solie was hyping up Robocop. This act of sell-out and stupidity ruined a decent card. It's even on the home video!!

If you can make it through the lame Robocop segments then the event is watchable but the video tape is heavily edited, sadly the Robocop segments are all there.

Recommended because Ric Flair puts on his usual one man show.
