Kevin Hart was on Jimmy Fallon this week, so it’s a fairly recent Throwback Thursday video, but it happened in the past, so deal with it. Apparently Kevin Hart is afraid of rollercoasters (real original) so Jimmy Fallon convinced him to go on one and he screamed and yada, yada, yada. To be honest I picked this video because Kevin Hart was on Raw this Monday and he was one of my favorite guest hosts because he sat on the sidelines, announced a match, did a little dance and left. He didn’t make the show about him like 98% of the other guest hosts do. Also, he’s been on the talk show scene all week and all he can talk about is how much fun he had on Raw and how much of an old school wrestling fan he is. Gentleman and a scholar.
My Favorite Summerslam Moment – Summerslam 2000 1st Ever TLC Match for the WWF Tag Team Championship
For the past 25 years, Summerslam has been WWE’s biggest party of the summer. It’s been the showcase for many memorable moments and matches, including Macho Man’s wedding to Miss Elizabeth and the Ultimate Warrior’s first WWF title, a 31 second defeat of then Intercontinental champion “The Honkey Tonk Man”. Perhaps no superstar has a better Summerslam résumé than Bret Hart. The Hitman was a participant in three of the most memorable Summerslam matches of all-time: vs. his brother Owen Hart in a steel cage in ’94, vs. Mr. Perfect for the IC title in ’91, and vs. his brother in law, The British Bulldog, in ’92. The latter of those three has been dubbed the greatest Summerslam moment ever, mostly due to the “family feud” angle leading up to the pay per view and the venue (Wembley Stadium in London, Bulldog’s home country). While their match at SS ’92 was definitely a classic, I went down a different route for my favorite match at the summer classic. The year is 2000, and the WWE is operating at an all time high. The Rock, Kurt Angle, HHH, Stone Cold and The Undertaker are dominating the main event scene, but the consistent show stealing matches are coming from the tag team division. Summerslam 2000 would be no different. Although HHH vs. The Rock vs. Kurt Angle for the WWF championship was the main event, the match people would be talking about was for the tag team titles. The Dudley Boyz, Edge & Christian and The Hardys would compete in the first ever TLC match, and the rest, as they say, is history.
