WWF World Heavyweight Champion Hulk Hogan vs King Kong Bundy - Philly 2/8/86


I think the one thing Bundy has going for him over all other Hogan opponents is his devastating finish: Avalanche. It gives his matches a sense of drama that a lot of other Hogan matches. Whats Harley Race going to do bump to win the title? Is Big John Studd just gonna clubber? The Avalanche has a sense of finality to it. The matches themselves are among the more boring of the Hogan matches I have seen, but I will give Bundy that. Hogan gets a shine in this one making this better than the Boston match. The Bundy heat segment is shorter but still consists of two chinlocks and a bearhug. The no sell of the second Avalanche into the Hulk Up was badass. Heenan was tremendous in the post-match bumping like a madman and taking a Avalanche. Post-match was great. We will see how WrestleMania II goes.
