Happy Boxing Day.
#Butterbean VS #Bartgunn at #wrestlemania . The #wwe /#wwf back then decided to start a shoot fighting competition could “Brawl for All” was a shootfighting tournament that lasted from June 29, 1998 to August 24, 1998. The Brawl for All resulted in a number of legit injuries for WWF performers including Steve Williams “Doctor Death” who was big in Japan and was favorite to win the whole at the time #wwf wanted to use it to get him over. But Bart Gunn had a mean left hand and went on to win the whole thing. Butterbean kept telling people backstage “I’m going to knock your boy out” he did and Bart Gunn was released soon after the loss. Vice asked Ken Shamrock to be a part of the tournament, but he decided. #wrestling#boxing#shootfighting#wrestlemania#knockouts#fights

Here is some quality Sunday afternoon wrasslin’. It’s the Smoking Gunn’s among with Smokin’ Sunny defending their tag team titles against the team of “The British Bulldog” Davey Boy Smith and “The King of Hart’s” Owen Hart along with Clearance Mason. I always loved the pairing of Owen and Bulldog because they complimented each other’s styles and skills perfectly. Enjoy. 👊🏽
I didn’t even know the #wwfhasbro#billygunn and #bartgunn#smokinggunns existed until I first started using the internet at my local library. Long before I even had a home connection and dial up. Possibly 2001/2002. Feels utterly surreal finally owning these. Especially after they were lost in the post for almost a week. Fuck.
