First Friday Flashbacks #2 10/2/2015
What’s going on everyone. I’m back with another edition of First Friday Flashbacks, where I explore great, funny, ironic or terrible moments of yesteryear in Wrestling. Last month we looked at matches from Bret Hart, Jushin Thunder Liger, Rey Mysterio, and Virgil among others, this week, we’ll continue this fine tradition of Flashing Back!
Let’s take a look at the Brawl for All Finals, Bart Gunn vs Bradshaw
Brawl For All was a disaster from WWE’s standpoint. Guys were injured, careers were shortened, and a lifetime of embarrassment followed. If you ever tire of JBL on commentary, just send him this video. He’ll probably block you though.

Finn Balor vs Chris Jericho
Live In Japan from around the Beast in the East Special, this is a cool addition from some youtubers who edited 3 personal videos into one solid match that looks like it was shot by a camera crew.

Shawn Michaels vs Shelton Benjamin
Time for a promo from Stone Cold Steve Austin…who I hated so much at this point. He just wouldn’t leave poor Bret Hart alone. Yall would have snapped too.
Another promo from The Rock in his prime.
Now for our main event, we’re traveling WAYYY Back…to see young Scotty Steiner vs Ric Flair.
That’s all until next month, contact me on twitter to get your requests in! @RichLatta32
