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.

Tonight, Roddy Piper has to deal with *HAKU* tonight. Bless me. But first, Randy Savage plans to be a royal pain in Jimmy Snuka’s behind. OOO YEAH! Somebody call my momma, the Bushwhackers are here! Oh, and can’t forget about this next one. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, Ted DiBiase and Zeus are together. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! And finally, Hulk says all of DiBiase’s money can’t buy him the WWF title. Umm, somebody roll the tape from I believe the date was February 5, 1988 in Hogan’s life. His memory not so good. This is all so confusing, so it must be time for Saturday Night’s Main Event!

ALRIGHT! They kick off the show with some mini-promos where the superstars get a chance to tell us what they are thankful for this year!

– The Hulkamaniacs and Hulk Hogan are thankful that Hulkamania still has a stranglehold on the WWF!
– Ted DiBiase is thankful that you are poor!
– Jake Roberts is thankful that he has a big, long, throbbing snake!
– Demolition are just thankful that they don’t have to fight each other! Me too!
– The newly-crowned Macho King is thankful that he’s the Macho King!
– Jim Duggan’s looking more cross-eyed than ever. Oh, and he’s thankful for the USA or something like that.
– Dino Bravo is thankful for what little English-speaking skills he possesses!
– Dusty Rhodes, if you will, is thankful for all those yellow dots on his black outfit. Really, Dusty? I figured you’d at least be thankful for like a turkey leg and some mashed potatoes and gravy and pumpkin pies. Anything but dots. Unless it’s Dipping’ Dots! MMM!
– Big Bossman is thankful that he can yell and sound very angry!
– Brutus Beefcake is, ahh who cares.
– Martel is thankful for his good looks. My goodness, can you blame the man?
– Rick Rude is thankful because he’s got such a bangin’ body. All joking aside and in a completely heterosexual way, he’s got the best body in wrestling history IMO.
– Roddy Piper is thankful he isn’t Rick Rude, or should I say, dead? Ouch.
– The Genius is thankful for…does anyone else find him a little on the queer side?
– Mr. Perfect is thankful for being just so dang perfect.
– The Bushwhackers are thankful for basically what Dusty Rhodes is truly thankful for; the opportunity for gluttony.
– Bobby Heenan is thankful for his Heenan Family! Even Tully?
– Hey, Ultimate Warrior doesn’t do the promo right!

Oh well, let’s get this show started.

WrestleMania V

WWF WrestleMania V
April 2, 1989
Atlantic City, NJ
Trump Plaza

The current WWF Champs were as follows:
World Champion: Randy Savage (3/27/1988)
Intercontinental Champion: Ultimate Warrior (8/29/1988)
World Tag Team Champions: Demolition (3/27/1988)
Women’s Champion: Rockin’ Robin (10/7/1988)

This is the only WrestleMania to ever originate from the same location consecutively. On a little more interesting note, the WWF once again wasn’t able to air a WrestleMania without the NWA putting on an awesome Clash of the Champions up against it. Those who decided to watch the NWA over the WWF witnessed a 2/3-falls match with NWA World Champion Ricky Steamboat vs. Ric Flair in a 60-minute classic. That is just WRONG to air that against this show. Funny, but so wrong.
