Vince Russo’s The Brand Recap – WrestleMania X Review, Shawn Michaels vs. Razor Ramon, Bret vs. Owen, More!
Russo talks about the iconic ladder match between Razor Ramon and Shawn Michaels. Russo says he popped big for Michaels dropping an elbow from the ladder with his bare ass exposed. Russo adds that Shawn Michaels and Ric Flair both loved to have their pants pulled down in the ring, and apart from those two, you rarely see anyone have their ass exposed during a match.
Russo says that there was only one ladder utilized in this match, and that was part of what made this match so amazing. He doesn’t believe that today’s talents would even be able to work a ladder match with just one ladder. Every spot in this match meant something, and he urges everyone who hasn’t already seen it to check this match out.
Russo informs that guest star Jennie Garth just didn’t want to be there that day. It’s obvious to him that Garth felt the business was so beneath her because she spent the entire day locked in her locker room and only came out to do her spot in the ring. After her spot was done, she left immediately.
Bret Hart defeated Yokozuna to win the WWE Championship in the main event, which was the perfect way to prop Bret back up after losing to his brother Owen earlier in the show. The shot of Owen staring at Bret after this match was a beautiful moment, as the younger brother realized that no matter what he did, he’d always be in Bret’s shadow.
That sums up today’s episode of Vince Russo’s The Brand. You can listen to the show yourself anytime here, and I’ll catch ya tomorrow for another recap!
