most diverse (and good) card


Recommended Posts

Is there a more diverse use of styles and matches on a ppv than Spring Stampede 1994. I'm not really meaning loads of gimmicks and themes in a Russo sence but just a good variety that was also entertaining.


At Stampede you have

*Badd/DDP - standard undercard opener.

*Regal/Pillman - hybrid styles match that worked.

*Chicago Street Fight - nutcase arena wide brawl

*Austin/Muta - mudcard title match, played out pretty even.

*Sting/Rude - standard sports entertainment match with a little smoke and mirrors thrown in.

*Rhodes/Buck - Classic southern brawl

*Vader/Bossman - big lads smacking the fuck out of each other

*Flair/Steamer - classic NWA style main event.

As you can see, it's a showcase for a lot of different promotions in Japan so each match has its own style. I've got it on dvd and it's interesting to watch. Foley talks about it in his first book.
