Largely underrated PPV,
This review is from: WWF: Wrestlemania 8 [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Wrestlemania VIII saw the passing of the torch from the old guard to the new breed with the younger guys getting the job done. This event is notable for two classic matches. Firstly, the Bret Hart vs Piper IC title match was very well worked. Bret took a kicking and the two traded technique and brawling very smoothly. It was clear that these two knew each other well and the chemistry was great. Bret really got over after this match. The second was between two of the greats, Flair vs Savage. They didn't have much time to prepare a story but if Flair and Savage can't put on a good match together then nobody can. A rarely mentioned, often forgotten 5 star match. The main event was Hogan vs Flair......oh wait, that's what it should have been, that's what people wanted but Hogan had other ideas and took on Sid. The match was a bit of a mess. Papa Shango got his timing wrong and botched the ending forcing Sid to quietly kick out of the Hogan leg drop. It was nice seeing the Warrior do what he does best...running to the ring, shaking the ropes and posing.
