Re: Classic Wrestling General Discussion & Review Thread
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.
Flatley my dear, I don't Riverdance.
