There are these rare iconic moments in history where you remember everything that happened, not only during it but everything that surrounded it, from the reaction, to where you were, to what you did. Moments that you will never forget because you never thought you would be able to see them in the first place, years of anticipation culminating with a payoff that exceeds all expectations...
This night. 2 years ago. I will never forget. I don't know how many times I watched it since then but everytime you get that little feeling as a reminder of how you felt when you realize that it really happens. I will never forget the buzz and adrenaline from watching it. That was something truly special in a moment that Millions...And Millions around the world realized the unmatched greatness they were seeing in front of them because he has that rare gift of bringing that type of emotion in people. This is a strong contender for the greatest moment of all time, just from the surreality of following this industry for years, getting excited with every little mention or half appearance, if it's in a taped skit or a video package. To watch the greatest the business has ever seen, the most successful and proudest achievement the industry has ever produced walking to the ring that night was magical. Twitter crashed, headlines all over the media, once a generation buzz on the product and more importantly, the actual moment. JR described it perfectly one time during the Rock/Hogan staredown at WM18: "It's as if time has stood still, February 14 2011, mark this day in your calendars because I know it's a day that I will never forget".
