Still quite a few matches for me, but I just watched it and it's 6 or 7 for sure on my list (of RAW matches, that is). One of the greatest 10 minute contests ever with all four men just CLICKING. Austin pre neck injury was awesome in this, and Shawn's return was played beautifully. Owen and Bulldog were the perfect catalysts for the Austin-HBK duo, with Bret being in the background of it all. Doesn't get the respect it deserves due to 97 having about a bajillion awesome matches from the main event stars, and the awesome angle it was immersed in. **** 1/4 from me.
Again... MIND BLOWN as to why Lesnar-Rock was on the top 100 list, as I thought every match on the list should be atleast ****..... I guess some people value some of these matches slightly more than I do. Time to watch the WM XIX matches on the list since I'm done with most of 97 and all of the :hhh matches.
BTW , how would you rank these BACKLUND matches on the top 100 list ?
Might have myself a little BACKLUND-A-THON tomorrow when I get out of class
"He's not the biggest. He was never the strongest. He was never the fastest. He was overlooked. He went in the sixth round. 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
I'd probably put all of those Backlund matches somewhere in the top 30 for WWE. Valentine and Slaughter matches might be top 10. I don't think I've seen the Patera TDM in like 3+ years, but I trust that match to hold up. There's probably three or four other Backlund matches that'd make my top 30-50 for WWE too. Motherfucking BACKLUND, motherfucker.
A Backlund-A-Thon is a great idea, but watching four of his matches can possibly take you up to four hours.
