Observer – 1/26/98

"6. Shawn Michaels (Michael Hickenbottom) beat Undertaker (Mark Calaway) in 20:37 of a casket match to retain the WWF title. Real good work by both, Michaels in particular. Michaels took one incredible bump early taking a backdrop over the top rope and cracking his lower back on the casket as he went over. He was really lucky he wasn’t hurt on that one."

Cant wait to see the meme for that one….

These observer recaps have been great, thanks for doing them!

No problem. That injury was one of the flukiest ever, especially after years of Shawn taking goddamn backdrops over the post and hurtling his body like a crash test dummy.
