WWF ROYAL RUMBLE 1997 - Discussion Thread

I thought I'd get this going ASAP.

Part 1:



Part 2:



Part 3:



Match Card:

HHH vs Goldust - Intercontinental Title
Ahmed Johnson vs Farooq
Undertaker vs Vader
Perro Aguayo, El Canek and Hector Garza vs Fuerza Guerrera, Heavy Metal and Jerry Estrada
Royal Rumble Match
Psycho Sid (c) vs HBK - wwf title match.

Discussion time. HHH/Goldust sounds good.

UNDERTAKER VS VADER.

Ahmad Johnson vs Faarooq should be a classic. Fingers crossed we get a Johnson promo pre or post-match too.

I've heard bad reviews on the Taker/Vader match.

Taker was great in that match. Vader did nothing special. I think a **3/4 rating would be fair for this match

It's only not a GREAT match, but it's good. The Canadian Stampede match does have it beat. I won't complain. Undertaker vs Vader in most capacity is enough catch my interest.

Re: WWF ROYAL RUMBLE 1997 - Discussion Thread

HHH/Goldust got a fair bit of time. Decent match. Ahmed Johnson throwing someone through a table, how revolutionary!

Luchadores in the WWE! But they kinda suck. Heavy Metal or whatever his name is just goes through the motions, he no sells moves constantly. They definitely picked up the wrong lightweights, jesus. This was shit and the crowd didn't respond to it.

Is it just me or does Austin have a smaller physique than in 1998 and after? Strange seeing Mis Mascaras and Cibernetico in there, I forgot that they tried to push this luchadore thing for a while. Overall a meh Rumble match.

Yes, I think the reason for that is that he had a knee injury in February and the neck injury in August. I can only imagine the amount of painkillers and other stuff to get over this.

My favourite memory was Austin's facial expression when Bret Hart's music hit

Woah, way to steal my idea... Surely it would have been best if I uploaded it in the continual thread, or at least was given the option to?

You don't even comment in the other threads!?

Re: WWF ROYAL RUMBLE 1997 - Discussion Thread

Not to be a whiner but I honestly think it was a dickhead move to post about the RR 1997 when A) Someone already spent their time and hardwork trying to get this weekly monday night wars party together and actually upload it themselves and post it here for everyone's pleasure and B) You don't even post in Issue's threads or acknowledge what he is doing. A little thank you might be appropriate or at least asking the guy if its okay for you to do this.

It may seem petty to you but it is a dick move for you to be doing and I would be pissed off if you were doing it to me.
