I just finished the Observer from July 1992 where Dave first reveals
that Bob Backlund is in talks to return to the WWF. Dave is actually
pretty positive about ol' Bob in the piece, but as we know he turned
rather viciously on Backlund with incredible speed once the run
What gives? What soured Dave so completely on Bob? I'm not going to
say babyface Bob Backlund lit my world on fire in 1993, but Meltzer
just thoroughly despised the guy once he showed up. Why the intense
hatred over Bob's return?
