This week on the Lapsed Fan, the “Co-Chairmen” return to the pomp and circumstance of the King of the Ring… But this time 1994’s entry. Amidst the Vince McMahon steroid trials and Hulk Hogan signing with WCW, the WWE was struggling to find its new identity and a "new generation" of superstars. Headlined by “Rowdy” Roddy Piper versus Jerry “The King” Lawler, this event seemed more like a step backward than a step forward.
Jack Encarnacao and JP Sarro bring their brand of humor and nostalgia to the 1994 King of the Ring, discussing among other things:
– Arguably the worst pin in the history of the sport of kings
– How hard it was to find this particular show in video stores
– Roddy Piper’s prejudice against people without a neck
– Who Bret Hart claimed was the WWE’s most “stunning figure” at the time
– Two words…Art Donovan
That and so much more on the Lapsed Fan review of the 1994 King of the Ring, only at WrestleZone.com. Brace yourself… We’re about to get medieval.
