Paid Members tiger_rick Posted July 2, 2017 Paid Members Share Posted July 2, 2017 That title makes me feel ancient. God knows how it makes Bret feel. I nearly started a thread recently about which wrestler is your absolute favourite. Just one. The sort of thread we used to get all the time but haven't had for ages. Feel free to add your answers. I might even edit the title tomorrow! Mine is Bret Hart. Always has been and always will be. Randy Savage runs him close but not enough. I've no idea why I was drawn to Bret. It was long before he was even IC champion, let alone a WWFtitle contender. Something about the pink gear, the hair, the glasses and the tan just appealed. He was the best wrestler I've ever seen. Just immaculate. Smooth, believable, exciting on offence, majestic when selling. His mic work overall isn't lauded but he cut some of my favourite promos ever and was someone whose word I always clung to. I've never given a shit about the criticisms of him outside the ring. Took himself too seriously? Thays not a criticism. That'sa compliment. And the reason he was incredible. Bitter? Damn right he is. He was forced out of the WWF, betrayed to the bargain, watched his brother die on live TV, suffered a career ending injury and then had a stroke and aged ten years overnight. And the rest. If I was him, I'd be bitter too - if I could avoid killing myself. We can say this about a lot of guys but there'll never another like Bret. Fuck me, I adore that guy.
