I'll definitely acknowledge "I was 16" as a legit defense for like 99% of things, that included.

Re: **WWE NETWORK THREAD**

Ha.

I guess I should add that what made this match interesting to me is that I didn't ever remember Jericho being in matches like this-- and it wasn't like it's a death match with weapons. As far as I know it's just a blade job gone wrong. And it's way way wrong.

Re: **WWE NETWORK THREAD**

Really pretty surprised at how strong of a pop Kerry Von Erich got at SummerSlam '90 for winning the Intercontinental Title.



I've probably said it before, but that was really one of the most annoying title changes of my childhood.

I choose to believe they were popping for Perfects amazing work - I have no idea how anyone can go from that tip-toe-dance to spinning around about a hundred times to sell that punch.

Re: **WWE NETWORK THREAD**

Wonder if overall crowds pop significantly less now than they used to due to cellphones/other distractions/higher expectations for matches/worst build-ups for feuds

Too random?

Re: **WWE NETWORK THREAD**

Beyond being a big Mr. Perfect mark from a young age, I just wasn't into Kerry Von Erich at all. I didn't know him at all from anywhere else, so he was a fresh face to me upon entry to the WWF, and I had no idea why they were pushing him. I could tell from the brief build that he was probably winning, so like my other least favorite title change from childhood (Hart Foundation/Nasties at WM VII) I was not surprised, but I was still disappointed.

Re: **WWE NETWORK THREAD**

Being in my later teens, I don't consider it "childhood" as much, but my anger at Shawn Michaels beating Bret Hart at WM XII would rate right up there also. In the middle of '95, I hated Bret Hart (despite having been a big Hart Foundation mark), and Shawn Michaels was one of my favorite wrestlers. Michaels became so brutally annoying as a character by early 1996 that I finally grew to like Bret Hart as a singles star simply because he was the last hope standing in the way of the horrifying prospect of this annoying ******* becoming the WWF Champion.

From the SNME where Sid turns on Hogan.



Seems totally organic and not at all planted.

Re: **WWE NETWORK THREAD**

Never forget that once, during a ref bump, Jimmy Hart turned his jacket inside out to reveal a striped interior, made a three-count, and Hulk Hogan and Brutus Beefcake got up and gleefully celebrated as if they sincerely believed that counted.
