The Hart Foundation YouTube/DailyMotion MixTape

Arguably one of the greatest tag teams of the ’80s. Bret Hart, Jim Neidhart and Jimmy Hart started from the bottom up and captured two WWF tag team championships in three years. Their battles with the Killer Bees, the Rougeau Brothers, the British Bulldogs and the Rockers are examples of tag team wrestling excellence. In 1997, the Hart Foundation became a stable and other members of the Hart family joined to compete against the best the WWF had to offer at the time as an anti-American group. By the end of 1997, Bret Hart was screwed out of the WWF title, Davey Boy Smith and Jim Neidhart left the WWF, Brian Pillman passed away, and Owen Hart hung around in the mid-card – ending another successful run of the Hart Foundation.

ROH Glory by Honor 7!

I’ve been a wrestling fan as far as I can have memories (which is like three years old and I’m 22 – my memory wasn’t erased at 16 or anything – MEN IN BLACK~!) and I’ve been to WWF Survivor Series 2001, TV tapings, Nitro, and enough Saturday night indy feds in North Carolina to make me hate indy feds in North Carolina and I have never been in such a great wrestling atmosphere. The best wrestling experience of my life was Glory by Honor 7. The crowd was incredibly hot and into everything that happened, which also included a great card. Plus, you add in the prestige and history of being in the old ECW arena for a wrestling show and you’ve got enough to make for an amazing evening. The people there were so open and you felt apart of the show and I liked that. It seems hard to find that these days in wrestling.

– Jerry Lynn vs. Kenny King: Good opener. I had never seen Kenny King before. He’s like 2005 Shelton Benjamin with a dash of charisma. Lynn still looks good in the ring and the Philly crowd made sure to give him a warm welcome. I think they owed him that since I had heard he wasn’t too impressed with the ROH crowd. Lynn wins with the Cradle Piledriver. ** 1/2 Read the rest of this entry
