What are your thoughts on the the best example of a heel decisively winning a feud? Usually a heel gets the upper hand and the face gets some kind of revenge. My guess would be Ken Patera vs The Heenan Family. After the debate where Patera injured Heenan’s neck, months later Heenan got his revenge when the whole Heenan Family jumped Patera and whipped his back and even Bobby got his licks in. As far as I can remember, Patera never really got any type of revenge on Heenan or anyone in the family.
Also, in the debate where Patera injured Heenan, Bobby went off about what a bad person Patera really was but his rant was censored on TV, any idea as to what Heenan actually said? Wouldn’t seem he was dropping F bombs back then.
Do you think they’re too good by themselves to team and this is overkill or just right?
I hope there’re not working crazy house shows in addition to being on every TV show as this isn’t the best time to push hard and risk injury.
I’m sure a lot nostalgia plays into everyone’s thoughts. But I would think it would have to be a nickname that when you hear it you think. “Dam- sucks no one else can use it today”
Lunatic Fringe (just kidding)
Come to mind.
My personal favorite is The American Dream
What say you?
Conversely. What is the worst?
I was watching the interviews that Jim Ross did with Mankind
in 97 recently, where they explored Mick Foley’s real-life history.
Because of how different that series of interviews was from
anything else they’d done around that time, I have to wonder – who masterminded
those? Obviously, they worked for moving Mankind away from Paul Bearer (the
Bearer-Taker storyline’s own direction to elsewhere had a hand in that too, but these worked
for giving Mick his own new direction to go in after Revenge of the Taker), but they
were also something of a curveball. So what’s the behind the scenes on these?
I'm sure someone who's read Mick's book more recently can tell you off the top of their head better than I could. But yeah, it was an amazing way to build sympathy for him and foreshadow two new characters.
