In Topic: Interview: Bret Hart (WWF Monday Night RAW 10/21/96)

Bret really feels like the biggest star in the company here. Great promo and Bret/Austin is a great direction to go in.


In Topic: Undertaker vs Mankind (WWF Buried Alive 10/20/96, Buried Alive Match)

I think I actually liked this more than the Boiler Room match. Really good big guy slug fest, and the great build made it feel especially significant. Some cool dramatic moments and a couple big bumps up by the grave. I thought it was sort of stupid to have the guy who actually wins the match be the one who ends up actually getting buried, but the idea of everyone coming out to bury the Undertaker once and for all was cool.


In Topic: Steve Austin vs Hunter Hearst Helmsley (WWF Buried Alive 10/20/96)

This is an interesting package with the commentary doing a shooty angle, two future top stars in the ring and them really running with Austin's badass, vulgar persona. The match was fine; the work in the ring was decidedly an afterthought in the entire presentation, but it was worked perfectly competently.


In Topic: Jushin Liger vs Great Muta (NJPW Super Grade Tag League 10/20/96)

This isn't an all time classic, but it is an all time must see, for sure. Incredible, ridiculous cinematic spectacle of a match. I did at times feel that strictly as a match it left a bit to be desired, but as an overall presentation, man, this was something else. Liger's face paint reveal was just one of the great spots in wrestling history. And we get an under-the-ring cam! And the ending. And lots of awesome stuff in between it all.

Nothing exceptional among the large number of really good MPro tags, but this is a still a really good MPro tag. Very fun match, never gets dull, just classic MPro style that's great to watch. I always especially enjoy MPro matches in their Northern stomping grounds, great atmosphere and a lot of energy.
