[1991-12-14-WCW-Main Event] Wrestler of the Year

Recommended Posts

Bret Hart wins a Wrestler of the Year award, which is funny, because Hogan has had a banner year. Bret broke through as a singles guy, but there isn't a lot on his resume yet. Still, wrestling is about building stars, and Bret probably got more from this than Hogan would have. Fred Blassie is there to present.

Blassie sighting on TV. Bret must have won the award 91 through 94. Unless they gave 92 to Savage. Hogan seemed like the choice for 91 but they probably wanted to reward Bret and highlight his push.

This seems really incongruous for the time period and for that matter, really perfunctory with a "let's get this over with" vibe. No intro, no acceptance speech from Bret.

That's it? No speech, no angle, nothing? They could have done this on Update and saved the trouble of getting Blassie to fly in for the taping.

 

It's nice that Mean Gene gets a brief hug. I'll bet he was legitimately well-liked among the boys, since from what I've heard he could certainly hold his own when it came to partying.

 

Both Piper and Savage are apparently gone from commentary, since their in-ring careers are heating up. This isn't the best introduction to Curt as a color man; he spends most of his time trashing Bret and putting himself over, although he's retired. Not being Bret's biggest fan is one thing, especially when Bret beat him for the IC belt, but this sounds like sour grapes that he knows he won't able to do anything about, at least any time soon.
