When was the first time you saw a foreign object used in a match?

For me it was Ricky Morton using a Steel Chair, or at least threatening to use one, during a Rock'N'Roll Express VS Doom tag match on the WCW show that used to be on late at night on ITV, back in the day. I remember thinking at the time, not being then familiar with wrestling tropes, how strange it was that someone would use a chair - of all things - as a weapon. I also thought it was cool as fuck, and Lance Russell's horrified reaction still sticks with me; 'Morton's got a CHAIR now!' As if the fabric of society itself was about to unravel.

 

A couple of weeks later Stan Hansen brought his lariat into the ring and I had to ask my parents what a 'lariat' was, but that's another story.

The first ever show I saw was Mania 7 when I was 8 years old. As far as I can recall, the first foreign object shot in that is when the Nasty Boys win the Tag Titles over the Hart Foundation via a Jimmy Hart megaphone shot. That was the first time I'd seen a heel win, and I remember being really upset about it lol.

Whatever weapon was used first during the Doom vs Windham and Arn Street Fight. Butch Reed slicing Windham open with his belt I think.

 

Starrcade '90? That was a good 'un. They were in their real clothes and shit! Pretty amazing for a pre-kayfabe 12 year old to witness. I also bladed my own forehead for the first time because I thought it looked so cool, after seeing that match. Even now, as an adult, with no desire for self mutilation, it's still in my top ten.
