Bret v. skinned cats


On the Bret DVD, he has an interview segment where he decries the “skin the cat” spot as inherently phony, his logic being that in a real fight, you wouldn't turn your back on your opponent and showboat while he flips himself back into the ring (he's got a
point).  I'd imagine he might have intended this as a dig at Shawn, but the thing is, that bit was an easter egg attached to the Bret/Steamboat match (great match btw, although Steamboat looks majorly roided there), and “skin the cat” was one of Steamboat's
signature spots.  I wonder if someone producing that disc was being a bit cheeky there.

Perhaps he was blinded by the tear in his eye when he was producing it.
