Don't you fucking start too!!!!! AAARRGGHHHH!!!!!

In the middle of the 1997 RR atm. God its awful so far. Undertaker/Vader was solid. Everything else was terrible. I've watched FAR too much shitty wrestling in the space of 24 hours. I need to balance it out by watching the GOAT match.

Only match from the event I've seen was SID vs Michaels. Always wanted to see Undertaker vs Vader. Never gotten around to it yet. Seen Canadian Stampede though. Speaking of Vader in '97 - how's the no holds barred match vs Shamrock? (if you've seen it)

Bob Backlund, during his return in WWF, was pretty influential on me during my middle school days. I thought the Cross-face Chickenwing was the coolest thing ever. I even got a detention for putting someone in it. ;-)

Vader/Undertaker never really got that GREAT match between them that they should have which is a huge shame.

Vader/Shamrock is awesome. MANLY AS FUCK. Stiff shots, I think Vader gets his nose broken or something. I'm sure me and Andy wrote about it over on my place but I can't find anything lol.

reminds me of the time a buddy of mine in elementary school had to sit in for recess b/c he was giving me a chokeslam and the teacher thought he was bullying me.

EDIT ~ Fuck yes. I was hoping it would have been.

I liked Taker vs Vader from CS for what it was. It's too bad they didn't get to completely tear it up. I knew Rumble wasn't a classic match either. They managed to have more interactions during the Final Four match too. I'll take it.

ROYAL RUMBLE 1993 was fantastic. The Backlund performance was awe inspiring, and I fucking loved the way the camera would sometimes pan to Backlund almost ready to pass out at certain points. After he eliminated Martel around the hour mark and pulled a wide eyed face that seemed to say 'Where the fuck am I?', the crowd went APESHIT. That moment was AWESOME. One of my all time favourite memories in wrestling. Almost shed a tear when the poor guy got eliminated at the end when I was a kid.

I also loved the Giant Gonzalez entrance halfway through and the Yokozuna-Earthquake confrontation, fuck the naysayers.

Flair vs Backlund, NWA vs WWF Unification HYPE. My soul has never been more crushed in knowing this match hasn't been available to view.

Two questions on Bret Hart. He strikes me as a very japanese style wrestlers in the early 90s.

1. Is it known that he was a big fan of NJPW and AJPW in the late 80s/early 90s or is this just speculation?
2. When he sold submission holds did he ever sell more because he liked the guy he wrestled with?

I know from reading Bret's autobiography he had some training with Japanese workers just as he was breaking into the business. Add that with his amateur wrestling background in high school and his father Stu Hart who was an infamous "shooter" or submission specialist, and I can see how a fan would find similarities in the way Bret crafted his style and some of the wrestling you would find in Japan. I'm sure Bret respects and admires NJPW and AJPW, especially the athletic and technical aspects which are the primary focus. Bret's at heart (no pun) a wrestling purist after all.

As for your second question, I don't buy that at all. Bret worked with various levels of talent from limited big men like Diesel to fine in-ring workers like Mr. Perfect, and I believe Bret gave his best effort to produce the best matches possible. Bret sold for as much as it made sense to the story of the match. I believe his professionalism and craftsmanship in the ring is what led to him having great matches with guys like Bam Bam Bigelow, The Kid, Jean Pierre Lafitte, Hakushi, Roddy Piper, British Bulldog, Undertaker, and so many others. Just look at that variety of talent in that list of opponents!
