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.

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.

The problem with a Backlund DVD is you'd be missing out on some of his best matches because you don't really want more than one 60 minute draw. I guess there aren't THAT many, though. Backlund matches can go a LONG time though and they'd have to choose so they would have a decent amount of matches plus some of the better ones. Regardless, if they put a good comp together people could always see it as a primer and check more Backlund out following that.

I really, really, really hope with this Backlund thing right now they release a couple of unseen stuff on WWE 24/7 or something. I mean shit, the Greg Valentine broadway was released on WWE 24/7 a few years ago before anywhere else wasn't it? And that's a top 20 (at worst - I could see it top 5) WWE match ever. Imagine what else they could have stashed away that isn't around the DVD comp/"tape trading" circles. I have total faith in Backlund to have the single greatest WWE match of all time.....that might be in their vault and the webgraps world just doesn't know about it. There's another Aridan Adonis match from 1982 that isn't "out there" yet. Considering their amazing match on 1/18/82, well imagine how good it could be.
