The British PPV Vince McMahon Has Never Been Able to Follow
This is without a doubt the British ppv the wwf/wwe has/was never able to follow.
This is the PPV which saw some fine wrestling matches to end all fine wrestling matches, but also saw the conflict begin between the Hart Foundation and the official birth of Degeneration-X that the USA at the time envied beyond belief.
Seeing fantastic wrestling from Vader, Owen Hart, The Undertaker, Bret Hart, Triple H and Mick Foley + others, the main event seeing the European title exchange hands from the British Bulldog to Shawn Michaels left British fans and European fans seething anger and hatred towards the WWE and DX. They were absolutely livid, (you have to watch it to understand why).
Having seen the build up inc. a story which saw Davey Boy Smith (Bulldog) claim he was going to win this match for his cancer aided sister + other family and his country, the shocking outcome saw the referee end the match due to a supposed knee injury that was causing Smith serious harm, + the birth of DX. DX started by humiliating and assaulting Diana Smith, but saw the Hart Foundation rush to the rescue, but the fans were too livid to see anything good of the h.foundation given the hatred of the world outside Canada their storyline portrayed at this time.
Although this provided a confusing situation for Bret Hart to be in for the rest of the year, which saw McMahon the same month ask for Bret's resignation from the wwf, a highly entertaining recommended to all the world.
A PPV that Vince has never been able to follow!
