The Heartbreaking Demise of The Rockers

The Rockers.  One of my favorite tag teams of the late 1980s, early 1990s.  The Rockers were so exciting to watch, starting from their awesome music that they ran out to the ring with, followed by how they leaped over the top rope simultaneously, their long hair, the bright colored tights, the tassels around their arms, to their in-ring high flying, synchronized wrestling moves. …continue reading about The Heartbreaking Demise of The Rockers

Yokozuna’s Historic 280 Day WWF Title Reign

Yokozuna was a great wrestling attraction.  He was an extremely large wrestler, but was able to move pretty well.  Yokozuna joined the WWF in late 1992 and immediately received a big push to super stardom.  Yokozuna was paired up with Mr Fuji and was known for his devastating finishing move – Banzai Drop – which he would normally give to his opponents multiple times.  He was not a fan favorite, but at the same time he wasn’t booed like a bad guy; it was more like a silent fear. …continue reading about Yokozuna’s Historic 280 Day WWF Title Reign

Bret Hart – Royal Rumble 1994

The Undertaker versus Bret The Hitman Hart

This is such a great follow up to my recent post about The Undertaker: Did He Ever Get Knocked Down.  I had the pleasure to watch Bret Hart: The Dungeon Collection recently.  One of the matches that stood out was his first match against The Undertaker from January of 1992.  This match would have been closely after the 1992 Royal Rumble because Bret Hart was no longer the Intercontinental Champion. …continue reading about The Undertaker versus Bret The Hitman Hart
