    Was Pride before Pride....we weren't ready.

    It would work today.

    But I do know it started out with apathy and "we want wrestling" chants until Bart Gunn knocked out Dr Death, then when the theme hit the speakers people were popping and by the time the semi finals were going down, the audience got the rules and cheered for takedowns.

    I watched Wrestlemania 15 again and I totally forgot about this thing. Butterbean KO'd Gunn into like another dimension, it was fucking brutal.

    I wonder if Gunn actually thought he had a chance out there. His head looked like a speedbag with that last punch.

    They gave Bart Gunn 6 months to train for Butterbean.

    Buried my ass, he just was a puncher facing a boxer....a sluggish, fat and slow boxer, but anyone who doesn't have years of footwork to utilize would get crushed by. Which happened.

    I enjoyed Bradshaw getting KTFO

    Too bad they're all awful boxers lmao

    Bart must have been fooling himself into thinking he had a chance against Butterbean

    Pride started a year earlier.

    Brawl for all had a bunch of dudes who had no idea how to legit fight. Unlike Pride.

    Brawl wasn't fixed to the same degree as Pride.

    And Russo was a dumbass.

    instead of it making the wrestlers look tough, it just made me think i could beat up a wrestler in a real fight

    haha, I was really into wrestling but hated brawl for all. I turned to wcw whenever it was on. Mostly midcard dudes and the fights were crap.

    The main eventers were much smarter than those who participated in that tournament. If Austin/HHH/Rock/Taker happened to get KO'd they would never be able to come back from that lol

    I never got the sense that Rock or H were that big on shoot fights. Austin was a tough ass redneck and Taker was the judge of wrestler's court, so I imagine if he told Gunn to get out of his ring he would have

    I was too young to know what was happening when I saw it live.

    Years later, I went back and looked into it. Absolutely brutal what they did to Bart Gunn lmao. If I remember correctly WWE was pissed that Bart beat Dr. Death Steve Williams.

    Dr Death wasn't going to draw money anyways

    Austin would have feuded with him for what, a month? Stupid reason to hold a grudge.
