ROYAL RUMBLE RAW
ummmm what??? Royal Rumble Raw? I thought the Rumble was weeks ago? I actually LOVE the Skydome atmosphere besides the music being too quiet . Stone Cold Vader to start off was pretty darn badass. Almost feels like early 90s WCW. Bret Hart was wearing possibly his coolest gear of all time here on the run in. My favorite part so far besides Sid's entrance(promo sucked but forgot about Psycho Sid fist pumping all the fans) was probably the Owen and Davey promo. Haha had me laugh out loud for real. Davey Boy's acting was really funny.
HBK promo was really odd. He must be on some serious coke or something these days because he just wasnt thinking clearly enough to give a good promo. Bret comes out and does a great job on the mic. Maybe Shawn was just in heel mode because he had no choice here with the canadian fans? The one thing HBK has going for him is his really cool outfit and he also looks badass wearing the belt.
Farooq, Ahmed Johnson, Goldust, HHH before DX, Vader, Taker. These guys don't interest me at this time unfortunately. Even Mankind. I actually have a great deal of respect for all these guys and characters, and I can stand them, but I don't get as excited to rewatch these matches like I do when watching Nitro or when rewatching the golden Era. Still mark out for Bret, HBK, Stone Cold, and Owen Hart. Bulldog is cool too. Stone Cold on the mic might be better than anything on Raw or Nitro, but Nitro as a whole was just VERY interesting all the way through these days.
Very excited to watch the beginning of the Piper Hogan feud. Used to love it when I was younger and have always loved Piper's fire.
Decided to skip ahead to the piper/hogan promo at the end of the show and DAMN PIPER WENT OFF. Piper is the best flat out. One of Hogan's better promos as well.
SAN FRANCISCO...WATCH MY FISTS GO!!!
that might be the coolest thing I've ever heard a wrestler say. GREAT SHIT Piper. I am marking out.
