The main things I remember from my childhood are Jake Roberts setting Damien on Randy Savage and it biting his arm back in 1991. That shit legit scarred me at the time.
I also fondly remember Undertaker getting his revenge on Yokozuna at Survivor Series 1994, with Chuck Norris ringside as special enforcer
Anways, it's been a crap day today (mum's birthday, she died 6 years ago next week) and nothing cheers me up more than watching classic Rock segments and listening to Jerry Lawler legit mark out and laugh his ass off at some of the things Rocky does. When Rock first says "Poontang Pie" during This Is Your Life, Lawler's reaction is priceless.
During the Rock's scathing promo in Toronto in 2003, its so funny to hear Lawler agreeing with everything he said, like he's his best mate or something. And then there's the Rock Concert 2, when Gillberg comes out and King just loses his shit. It's hilarious, and clearly obvious that he was a real fan of Rocky and couldn't hide his enjoyment whenever he was in the ring.
Love him or hate him, Rock had PRESCENCE. A perfect example is Toronto 2003, the way he walks out onto the stage and just kinda stands there, scanning the crowd and soaking it in but totally owning the moment. He as an aura, and its something that is missing from the majority of top guys today. Very few of them can walk out onto the stage and really feel like a big deal, like the show revolves around that moment.
