Big Van Vader Vs The Boss – Spring Stampede 17/04/1994
ME WATCHING AND REVIEWING SOME WRESTLING FOR THE WCW POLL FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MONTHS TIME~!
Sadly, the Boss isn’t Bruce Springsteen, but Big Boss Man. *sigh* I’d totally pay to see Springsteen get his face caved in by Vader…
Holy motherfucking SHIT at the bump on the rampway before the match even begins!!! Vader and Boss go at it straight away, and Race grabs Boss, allowing Vader to take one hell of a run up for a Splash… only for Boss to move and Vader to legit run Race down; and it looks terrific. Race takes a bump better than 90% of the young guys today.
MOAR Vader running and jumping! This time he has Boss down in the ring, and he takes another run up from the ramp way and dives over the ropes (!!!) for a splash that way! Fucking hell. Boss gets his legs up though, and all that running and jumping were wasted. Hate when that happens…
Boss really takes the fight to Vader, and Vader does that usual amazing job of looking vulnerable despite being 6ft whatever and over 400lbs and an all round bad motherfucker who caves faces in for a living.
After getting a taste of the old “cave in faces” Vader, its Boss’ turn to take one helluva bump. I mean Christ, what the hell is wrong with these guys? They should NOT be doing these kinds of bumps!
Since I haven’t seen any wrestling outside of current WWE for the last month or so at least, starting back with Vader is just… awesome. I almost forgot how great those punches were. Almost. Not quite. It’s still great seeing them again though :).
This baby is just a tremendous back and forth big man match that you HAVE to see for this poll, no question about it. You have to see it even more if you are a Vader fan… and I’m positive everyone on here is :P.
In the end Vader is the one able to take the most punishment and still come back, getting him the win, but not before having to resort to the Moonsault when the Vader Splash from the ropes doesn’t work.
I’m definitely reserving a spot on my list for this bad boy.
