Mountie's Title Win


Hey Scott,

With the blog becoming an all Mountie love-in lately, I got to thinking - I've never seen footage of the match where the Mountie beat Bret for the IC title (when Bret had the flu, right?) Does such footage exist and if not why not? I know it was a house show, but so was Macho Man's win...it just seems strange. Was it like an LOD deal where Bret agreed to drop the title on the condition that the footage would never air? 

The footage aired all over the syndicated shows and in fact was part of the video package at the Rumble!

  1. They are not even pretending that Nattie is a sane, rational person anymore.

  2. The answer is "No".


    And, yeah, I'm not the least bit surprised that they didn't like him. We take it for granted that the lockerroom should hate the Kliq guys, but Bret is ridiculous in his own right

  3. Definitely, still love Bret the worker, but Jesus, lol. It's funny not because it's true, but because you can easily hear him saying it.

  4. Yeah, nothing against the guy himself. Dude had been around a while and done good work for them. I just think the gimmick itself was a little cartoonish to win the IC title from a guy they wanted to reach the next level, fluke or not

    He should start telling people he bled for Austin at WM 13 because he couldn't do it on his own.

  6. "Hey, I want to know something, Jack Tunney! What's the win and loss record on Piper? What gives him the right to step in on two days' notice and get a title shot?"

    Damn skippy, Mountie, he was commentating before this shit! lol

  7. I mean, Shawn Michaels is a big mark for himself too (not wanting to lose belts, etc.), but he's not only in the same league as Bret Hart.

  8. Just re-watched "Wrestling With Shadows" for the first time in man years. I still lean more toward siding with Vince's "one member of that relationship forgot he was in the sports entertainment business" comment.

  9. The Piper win was also great. The arena exploded when Mountie's arm dropped for the third time and Piper was so clearly thrilled to finally get a belt after all those years, it was nice to see.

  10. Yep. Also, that fucking weird electric chair prop

  12. Exactly. Bret's like the classic "I walked seventeen miles to and from school, uphill both ways!" old man who adds mileage by the year.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Yep, his whole life/career is one big fisherman's tale

  15. Micheal Jordan won with a 104 degree fever in Game 5 of the NBA Championships in 1997. Bret's a pussy.

  16. Do Mounties still dress like that?

    That's not true...Mountie didn't get assaulted till after the LOD's title win.

    I was just thinking that....and I HATE Jordan.

  19. Only the handsome, brave, and strong ones.

  20. I love the overall idea of mid 90's WWF that all the wrestlers have side gigs and that they would dress and act like they were at the other job while wrestling.

    ReplyDelete
  21. "Flu like symptoms" has since been uncovered as... "the guy was hungover as fuck."

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hey, Ziggler's then only upholding time-honored tradition WWF tradition by doing comedy! 25 years ago he'd be pushed as "The Comedian"

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh shit, that one goes near 20 minutes too, if I remember correctly.

    ReplyDelete
  24. You going to fuck with a Chicago Legend. Fuck you.

    Jalen Rose is just making up shit because he told Chris Webber to take that timeout in the NCAA Championship game and Chris is Michael's illegitimate son.

  25. Throw drugs at him and shut the door

    ReplyDelete
  26. Yeah, it's a fucking eternity if you're not paying attention to Heenan.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Yeah, I think they wanted to get the title off of him until he officially re-signed. I want to say he was negotiating with WCW at this point.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I know what you mean but in response I think 'Ultimate Warrior and the Honky Tonk Man', and I see it as a wise bit of history repeating, in that light. Especially given how fondly a lot of people remember it. I know that for me, I remember that match at the 92 Rumble just as fondly as I do Ric Flair winning the gold.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I've just remembered that SID and VADER are also impervious to criticism.


    Although she has a similar rule with the Bellas and Total Divas. And makes me watch Total Divas. And I've started to really ENJOY Total Divas.


    So it's not all win-win.

  30. His finisher would be "The Punchline".

    ReplyDelete
  31. Yeah, I think they last checked in with Mountie and his new lover just before The Match Made In Hell.


    Which is horribly appropriate.

    Ok we have to rig this thing so that The Mountie wins. It would be funny as hell and you KNOW it will cause someone to have a meltdown at some point.

    Punch him in the mouth with a roll of quarters says Jacques Rougeau

    ReplyDelete
  34. And have another wrestler called "The Heckler" BAM. Insta-feud.

    ReplyDelete
  35. It was nice of the Mountie to request that WWF not record the "Mountie Zapper", which is the original Stone Cold Stunner. Bret was KOed for a shoot by the sheer awesomeness.

    ReplyDelete
  36. If a shock stick could end Goldberg's undefeated streak, it sure as hell is enough to win this tournament. Mountie all the way!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Yeah, I mean there's really no business excuse for Bret not dropping the title. I watched Bret's 2005 DVD today and I think everyone is full of shit to some degree. Bret says he had no problem losing in Canada when he said multiple times he couldn't lose in Canada, and Vince says it was Turners money that caused Bret to leave when he didn't want him there anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Bret makes no mention of that in his book and says the plan was for Mountie to beat him just to set up his match with Piper but I do remember the Apter magazines talking about Bret joining WCW at the time to.

  39. "Reality" "TV"

  40. What happens with the ones that lose the vote? Does that mean you will never review them or do you just wait for another opportunity to use them in a poll?

    ReplyDelete
  41. I recycle choices

  42. Corey Hart Dudley made me do an out-the-nose spit take with a ginger ale.

  43. How can you NOT mark for Meng/Haku a little bit? Dude has always ruled.

  44. I love you Tania!!!!
