Awesome list. As for ; 7.HHH vs Kozlov 08- You had me cracking up on this WHOLEparagraph. So DAMN true!
I will add my two cents though. I'm a huge Hitman fan. I was in Montreal the night of the screwjob. I'm up in the Nations' Capital, and it's only a 45 mins drive from here. I was twelve at the time. The emotion and the crowd reaction that Vince got after the actual "screwjob" was absolutely insane. There is SOOOO much that any DVD hasn't shown or captured. Montreal was on the verge rioting. When Bret did the "WCW" had gesture, the whole crowd broke out in a "WCW" chant. The loads of garbage and WWE t-shirts that were thrown back into the ring was ridiculous. That night will forever be a night that I won't forget.
The one debate I have about the topic as a whole, (this stemming from recent debates with some of my buddies), is despite "what" was supposed to happen, whether or not Bret was in talks with Bischoff, or if he was merely sticking up for the lockeroom. Losing such a culminating rivalry on your own turf may have been what it all boiled down to. That being said; How would fans have reacted had Rock lost in his home town at this years Mania?!
When they suggested Miami would have rioted, I can honestly say "Hell Yea"!! lol
The Jose Lothario heart attack spot was one of the cheesiest of all time for me. HBK's overacting still makes me cringe to this day lol. And to this day I still can't tunderstand how the gobbledy gooker got from being an idea someone (probs under the influence) came up with to making it onto our screens without someone pointing out what an epic fail that was going to be. Pretty much agree with your list, bro, especially the number one. Bad bad night for wrestling all round there.
I actually enjoyed the Austin getting run over thing though. I thought it was a good way to write him off screen for awhile. It was crap the way they said it was Rikishi a year later tho... Rikishi who wasn't even with the company when it happened. Oh he was visting friends backstage that night... yeah... right. Still love his 'Bad Man' theme tune tho. I'm a bad man giving bad men bad looks, prince among theives and crooks..... that was the bomb. And he was spitting it himself.
Forgot to mention this in the blog. Survivor Series best and worst moments will be coming up soon....
STyles Vs Daniels Iron Man Match is my fav pick of all...n I also enjoyed Angle n Sting at BFG7
Yes! Yes! Yes.....finally some one makes a top 10 cage list. The only thing I didn't like was the way you presented the blog, I would also include Shawn vs HHH in there.
One I wished you had put in was a Triple H vs. Kane match from RAW during 1998 or 99. It was during the time where Kane was in The Coporation and allied with Chyna. I think. Can anyone else back me up in saying it was a very good bout?
One of my favorite cage matches was Ron Garvin vs. Ric flair from Starcade'87. If I close my eyes & think about that match I can still hear those chops, totally Brutal! Mr. Wonderful still doesn't get the respect he soooooooo richly deserves but ultimately a good solid list!
