In honor of the WWE Network, lets talk about some of our favorite moments that have been lost in the shuffle / aren’t spectacular, but appreciated anyway. I always think the key to a good match is the ability to make it ‘feel’ real to people who know its fake. Like when a table doesn’t break on an Elbow drop, or Shawn took that Moonsault on his knees during Wrestlemania a few years back (though I disliked that match – maybe I should rewatch it!)
Thus, two questions today:
Question 1: What are your favorite little moments from Wrestling history – little bumps or sequences or matches that delivered something memorable, not because of greatness, but because of creativity – that you can access on WWE Network.
Question 2: If you don’t have WWE Network, how long have you been in Al Qaeda?
My current plan is to seek out:
1) All of the WCW ‘water’ bumps as soon as I can, though I guess most happened on Nitro if resident actual professional writer Mr. Ferrari is to be believed.
2) All the crazy Shane O’ Mac bumps I can find, including rewatching that KOTR match with him and Kurt Angle.
3) This is where I need your help: Shoot moments or botched finishes or silly things that have happened in matches that I’ve never seen!
