Default 1994 - The Good, The Bad & The Ugly (Podcast Question)

So, I'm taping another podcast later this week, and the subject for discussion is looking at the wrestling landscape in 1994, and the good, bad and ugly elements that comprised it.

The idea being that out of everything that happened on a worldwide basis in this year, what ONE thing epitomises each for you personally (if you had to choose a match, promo, angle, feud, theme or company that summed each up), and why?

For example, if we were talking 93, we could say:

The Good - Bret/Lawler Feud

The Bad - Hogan plunger raping Bret at Mania IX

The Ugly - Big Sky, Charlie Norris, Shockmaster, Equaliser and others stinking up WCW.

Apply for 1994, and please go into as much depth on why things were the best or the worst as you'd like. As always I'll read the feedback and credit the fine folks who do :-)

As an aside, I'll be recording tomorrow evening, so get 'em in quick!

1994

The Good: Bret Hart vs. Owen Hart Rivalry

Great WrestleMania match, great cage match at Summer Slam.

The Bad: The Undertaker vs. Undertaker storyline payoff being a dud

The Ugly: Diesel squashing Bob Backlund just after he took Bret Hart to his limit.

1994: one of the best years ring work wise in WCW. Go watch Spring Stampede 1994 sometime, just fabulous stuff.

The Good: Bret Hart vs. Owen Hart

The Bad: The Butcher vs Hulk Hogan

The Ugly: An incredible regression in WWF production values. The Road to WrestleMania TV special in a high school gym. WWF Superstars and Challenge, which were supposed to be in larger locations, were taped in arenas not much larger than the RAW tapings. The addition of laser lights to the lighting grid that required artificial smoke, which in turn quickly filled the small venues with smoke and created a permanent haze on many TV shows. The WWF would finally solve the problem three years later when Bonnie Hammer had them get machines to remove the smoke during RAW.
