Yeah exactly. Him taking off the gloves against HHH was also supremely badass.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

BOB was the original king of the **** match before it was cool to have a **** match in the WWF. What would the defining BOB classic be ? The cage match with Slaughter ?

Really haven't seen much Bob, aside from his later WWF days when he wasn't really active and was a raving lunatic.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I ADORE his matches with Bret (bar the WM XI match obviously, which I actually haven't seen before), the Superstars match and the Survivor Series match were both things of beauty in their own way. I <3 me some BOB from time to time.

Where would you rank the guy in terms of all time WWE Champions ?

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

He has the best WWE Championship reign without a doubt. I seriously don't think anybody even comes close. Of those 18 matches I listed, I think fourteen are matches where he's the Champion, and I could seriously say it's possible that up to eight of those matches are top 50 WWE matches ever. There are three-four of them I could see in a top ten. More of those 18 overall (well 14, the Inoki ones are New Japan & the Takada one is UWF) like the Rose and Zbsyzko matches could be top 100.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Since Backlund's going in the Hall Of Fame and more new fans will get more familiar with his name/legacy I think WWE should put together a documentary on his career and feature most of the matches listed in here. He is one of the most important stars in the history of this company, arguably the greatest WWF Champion of all time, and one hell of a wrestler. I think a lot of fans would appreciate and buy Bob Backlund DVD. I know I would. We should demand it for WWE to make one.


Much gratitude to
CHAMPviaDQ

Defining BOB classic for me would be the match with Slaughter before the cage. Always liked it slightly more than the cage. Not by much though.

I watched the Billy Graham Timeline yesterday, essentially covering a couple of months before he beat Bruno to just after Bob beat him, and fuck, he didn't half shit all over Backlund. Saying he never should have been given the title and he never drew. Which is fucking crazy because the guy is like the 6th greatest draw ever or something (according to that list Meltzer put up a few years ago anyway). I had heard rumours that some guys (Verne and possibly Eddie Graham) had gotten together and bet to see if they could convince Vince Sr to make BOB champion because him as champ was laughable or something, and Billy somewhat confirms that Vince was talked into it by those guys and someone else (I forget who). Billy kept on about how it was a mistake and shit but Vince was too proud to change anything after the belt was put on Bob. Maybe, just maybe, Bob was actually fucking DRAWING MONEY so they kept it on him. FOR NEARLY SIX YEARS.
