Re: Through the Ring
For me, Bam Bam Bigelow and Taz going through the ring at Living Dangerously 1998, in Bigelow's hometown. Made the match even more dramatic with the fact that while Taz had Bigelow in the Tazmission, Bigelow was tapping out as he fell back but the referee didn't see it and both he & Taz went through the ring. The referee sold that spot excellently. After a few minutes, Bigelow pulls Taz out of the hole and wins the TV Title.
That was their first match and technically speaking, Taz did win, as Bigelow tapped out but the referee didn't see it. They had a similar spot at Heatwave later that year, where Taz DDT'd Bigelow through the entrance stage. Bigelow climbs out of the hole, Taz no sold the shit, choked Bigelow out and won the title back that he shouldn't have lost in the first place.
