Re: 1995: The year in prowrestling that sucked tremendously
It's funny. 1994 WWF is one of my favorite years, and almost immediately with the 1995 Rumble, it was already a big mess and continued until about November. The WWF definitely had all of the talent that they needed. The main event was definitely lacking, but the midcard and tag team division were still full and well. Sure, it's much easier to re-book the year in retrospect, because we know what worked (very little that year), what didn't work, and what might have worked better.
MAIN EVENT: Bret Hart, The Undertaker, Diesel, Yokozuna.
(That's all that I can think of. Backlund was done after Mania XI, Michaels was back to the IC Title after Mania XI, Mabel just isn't worth mentioning.)
UPPER CARD: Sid Justice, Razor Ramon, Shawn Michaels, British Bulldog.
(These guys were either former main eventers or flirted with the main event enough where they could have been pushed and succeeded, whether temporarily or permanently.)
MID CARD: Lex Luger, Bam Bam Bigelow, Owen Hart, Jeff Jarrett, 1-2-3 Kid, Tatanka.
(Sure, there are plenty more, but these are the more popular ones. An impressive list none the less.)
We can see the obvious there that the WWF had the talent, but it was just a down year in wrestling all around. Sure, they could have booked it better (Bret as Champion....Easily), but it is what it is.
