10 Most Feel-Good WWE Moments Ever
Here's to the moments that send chills down our spines and put tears in our eyes...
9. British Bulldog at SummerSlam 1992
SummerSlam 1992 was the first major WWE pay-per-view to take place overseas and, wouldn’t you know it, it took place in my own back yard!
Not literally, of course.
It took place in Wembley Stadium in front of 80,000 people, and we're in Newcastle. But some Americans think that Newcastle is a ‘small mining town’ just outside of our nation’s capital so, hell, SummerSlam 1992 took place in my own back yard.
And what a show it was, the full-on razzmatazz of WWE coming to blighty for a star-studded card featuring the Legion of Doom, Ultimate Warrior, Macho Man Randy Savage, Bret Hart, The Undertaker and a homecoming for our greatest export; the British Bulldog Davey Boy Smith.
Smith was challenging The Hitman for the Intercontinental Title in the main event and to say that his entrance generated one of the biggest pops of all time is like saying ‘water is wet’.
A beautiful back-and-forth match followed, with Bret and Bulldog taking each other to the absolute limit in what has since been cited as one of the best WWE matches ever.
Davey Boy just about snatched the win by countering a sunset flip, blowing the non-existent roof of the place before celebrating with his wife (and Bret’s sister) Diana.
Now everyone rise for ‘God Save the Queen’…
