Butterbean thought he was going to be signed by the WWF.

Butterbean wasn't in the Brawl for All

After Gunn won the Brawl for All they fed him to Butterbean

I really have no clue how the idiots in the WWE thought Williams was gonna win.
BFA is my only memory of Steve Williams. And I'm sure for a lot of other people. So there's that at least.

It was more desperate to compete with WCW although it was stupid.

Re: Was the "Brawl For All" legit?

Bart Gunn was f*cked royaly when he won the won the BFA. Even though according to Hardcore Holly, it was voluntary to participate, and that Dr Death had already been paid the 100.000 the Winner would recieve when winning Before even entering it.

Holly had a really interesting read on it in his book. Each participant got 5000 us dollar per match but the Winner would get 100.000. JR basically buried Gunn after winning it.

But the one thing that I don't understand is how WWE could Think Dr Death winning it when they originally had Steve Blackman, Dan Severn entering it. Both had to leave Before entering due to injury I Believe.

One reason Bart got royaly f*cked at WM 15 since WWE banned the takedowns and kicks in his match against Butterbean, littery making it a normal boxing match where Bart had no chance in hell winning, even knowing it himself Before entering it.

I'll scan copy and post what Holly wrote later. REally interesting

Yes it was legit. So many guys were injured. Make no mistake the guys were tough but most of them were far removed from competitive fighting. Look up Cornette's analysis of the Brawl for All.

I personally found brawl for all enjoyable but I know fine well it couldn't have became a regular thing.

Re: Was the "Brawl For All" legit?

Regarding Bart Gunn vs. Butterbean, it wasn't part of the Brawl For All Tournament, but it was still a Brawl For All match with the same rules. In the WrestleMania rewind clip, Lawler is saying Gunn should go for a takedown.

I don't understand how Bart Gunn could have been forced into a shoot fight with Butterbean against his will. Gunn was a professional sports entertainer, and shoot fights weren't something he signed up for in his contract. There had to be something unlawful about that.

"Hey Funaki, you're gonna be in a shoot fight with Mike Tyson tonight. You can't get out of it. Good luck." Think about how ludicrous that sounds.

The Butterbean fight most likely was optional for Gunn, and agreed to it for a big pay day. Even though Vince probably hoped he would agree, so Butterbean would beat the shit out of him.

Bart Gunn is under contract, he will be put in whatever match they want him in.

Every match you wrestle in WWE is technically "optional". A guy could gladly say no and be either fired or sued for breach of contract. It'd be pretty hard to prove the match was a shoot in court as well. WWE's team of lawyers could easily lie and just say Butterbean knocking him out was the planned finish.
