First Friday Flashbacks #2 10/2/2015
What’s going on everyone. I’m back with another edition of First Friday Flashbacks, where I explore great, funny, ironic or terrible moments of yesteryear in Wrestling. Last month we looked at matches from Bret Hart, Jushin Thunder Liger, Rey Mysterio, and Virgil among others, this week, we’ll continue this fine tradition of Flashing Back!
Let’s take a look at the Brawl for All Finals, Bart Gunn vs Bradshaw

This one here is a personal request from /u/HyperDan on Reddit, A True diamond…Shelton’s jaw still hurts.
Shawn Michaels vs Shelton Benjamin
Time for a promo from Stone Cold Steve Austin…who I hated so much at this point. He just wouldn’t leave poor Bret Hart alone. Yall would have snapped too.
Another promo from The Rock in his prime.
Now for our main event, we’re traveling WAYYY Back…to see young Scotty Steiner vs Ric Flair.
That’s all until next month, contact me on twitter to get your requests in! @RichLatta32
