Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
So I'm going to meet Bret Hart in 11 days, and I was just wondering what opinions you have of the man, and where would you place him all time (In terms of both in-ring, and as a total package). Also, I'd like somebody to give me a list of their top 5 favourite Bret matches ever. Personally, my favourite Bret Match is either SS 96 vs Steve Austin, SS 97 vs The Undertaker, or ONO 97 vs The Undertaker.
I might go ahead and rewatch a HUGE amount of Bret matches, just to come up with a top 10-20 or something. As of right now though, he's in my top 5 all time in terms of in-ring, and perhaps top 10 in terms of the total package (he was just THAT good in the ring, fantastic workrate mixed with excellent psychology, knew pacing perfectly).

So with that being said, all of the intangibles that a quarterback is supposed to have, they overlooked it with him because it was burning from inside of him" - Ray Lewis on Tom Brady
