    Big fan of Gary Hart.

    Anyway, here's something a little different. Perhaps proof that you don't need to have the classic 'gift of the gab', or rant and rave, if you can make people believe you mean what you say.

    Gary Hart... manager of Kevin Sullivan, Kabuki, and Mutah... influential to say the least

    Definitely an underrated guy! Suffered from being around just a little too early to impact modern minds.

    Not his all time best, but everyone should have some Gary Hart in their lives

    I can only imagine. I might need to seek that out.

    That six man they did with Eddie against Foley, Too Cold, and Dean Malenko is freaking fantastic!

    I always forget about the Steiners being in ECW for a bit.

    Honestly though a Shawn Michaels/Scott Steiner match in 1995 would have probably been amazing!

    Scott Steiner both foreshadowing his big bad booty daddy gimmick and prophesying in unknown tongues what wrestling will become

    Still a nice find though! I admit I'm quite curious about seeing more Mid South, what I've seen has been very hot indeed. I was shocked when I saw a young Junkyard Dog, he remained very charismatic into his WWF run but the physical transformation from his peak to the WWF is pretty striking.

    If anyone's interested in Mid-South, this comes just after they've shown a recap of The Midnight Express tarring and feathering Magnum TA. Few things to note in here from Magnum, Watts, and the young Jim Cornette really ramping up the 'mamma's boy' gimmick.

    Apologies for tape quality - this seems to be an original recording rather than ripped from the WWE.

    They should have had. Bam Bam/ Humperdink match made in heaven

I'm just too young to remember them doing this with Savage, BUT, just a few years later they did they same thing with Bam Bam Bigelow when they brought him in and similarly he chose none of the above and brought Sir Oliver Humperdink in. Nowhere near the same effect, obviously, but if memory serves me correctly it was looking like Slick was all lined up to be Bigelow's manager and then they introduced Humperdink. Great TV with a great build and it made someone's arrival feel that much more special.
    Ah that's such good shit! I mean Humperdink never seemed like a good fit, but the angle itself was solid. Along the same line I remember when Andre dropped Heenan they made a show of all the other heel managers trying to acquire him, but since Andre was a face again one by one he turned them down and usually make fools of them in the process. He never even wrestled again in the WWF but it was still a fun angle while it lasted.

    BK, closest we might get to that today is if all 3 TV brands for WWE have a GM who are looking to sign someone. Or maybe the Raw and SD GM are vying to sign an NXT talent... obviously not the same, but seems the most likely way we might reenact that awesomeness.
