The Best Pay-Per-View Of 1997,
By A Customer
This review is from: WWF: In Your House 16 [VHS] (VHS Tape)
The WWF's Candian Stampede brings the hated Hart Foundation to the place were they are worshipped like gods; the Hart Family's home town of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. This tape is excellent. The only dissaponting match is the Free For All contest between the Godwinns and the New Blackjacks. For new fans, this is a chance to see Midian and Bradshaw in past gimmicks. However, the rest of the tape is EXCELLENT! See Triple H and Chyna before DX was even imagined, as Hunter battles Mankind in a solid brawl across the arena. This was a great feud, but did either man release it would one day be main-event material? Then there's an awesome Lightheavyweight match pitting Japanese legend The Great Sasuke against Kaientai's Taka Michinoku. Wow, their ariel artistry is MIND BLOWING! And there's and incredible 10 Man Tag Team main event, pitting home town hereos the Hart Foundation against Stone Cold Steve Austin, Goldust, Ken Shamrock and The Legion Of Doom. Another great contest, but it's sad to see the Hart's; just under three years ago, Bret was still on good terms with Vince McMahon, the British Bulldog had no personal problems and was a great main eventer, Jim Neidhart was not on the 'Whatever Happened To ... ?' list, and the late Brian Pillman and Owen Hart were still with us. It's quite sad to see the entire Hart Family - cousins, nephews, uncles, and even Stu and Martha - celebrate in the ring.
