27 years ago? God, I'm old as shit now.

That's still one of the best heel turns ever.

Definitely agree that's the best heel turns ever. Also don't The Rockers have an unofficial World Tag Title win that was overturned?. Goes to show how stacked the tag division was back then when they didn't hold the belts. I would have had them beat the Hart Foundation instead of the Nastys at WM VII as a passing of the torch.

Yes, the top rope broke during a SNME match and for some reason they didn't stop the match and fix it, they kept going. Vince refused to air it and just said to pretend the title change didn't happen.

Thanks. Didn't the match turn up on a Coluseum tape or am I misremembering. Im assuming it's up on the WWE Network or on the Tag team DVD set they put out hosted by Miz and Morrison.

I don't know which DVD set, but it's on the Network. Probably the tag set you're talking about or one of the Shawn DVD sets.

Piledriver was much better. The Demolition song, Jive Soul Bro, and Vince high on coke singing Stand Back.


I can't even begin to imagine the amount of cocaine used by the men on stage that night.

Yea, although you had "Grab them Cakes", "Real American" & Hogan's OG theme by Jim Steinman on The Wrestling Album. Plus you had other fun songs on it by Hot Rod, Mean Gene, Hillbilly & Jimmy Hart etc. Jesse makes comments after some of the songs too. That "Stand Back" video always makes me :rofl2: Was six years later they put out the WrestleMania album and you'd think they would have put out a few or atleast one in that time frame considering wrestling was still popular in that time.
