Well here we go. You wanted it, you got it.

Referring to what Vince McMahon built as an empire does not show an anti-WWF bias. A bias would be to dismiss everything that the company has done or blast them openly in favor of another promotion. Using the word empire does neither of those.

The number of quality teams you speak of during the Hart's run in WWF? You mean the few that were employed there or in wrestling as a whole, because clearly a few people have already pointed out that your dismissive comment about competition was full of shit. Plus if The Steiners were not considered great until after the Hart Foundation's run, then are we to assume all those teams listed earlier just up and disappeared?


No need to answer. We already provided a list of teams active & competing during that time span.

I love your 'good in one place is not as important as great everywhere' line though. It's still real to you, isn't it?

It actually is a pretty accurate comparison.

If you still fail to understand how a person\team is considered to have a better career by winning multiple titles in various places vs a lesser amount of titles in a smaller place- then you clearly have no fucking clue on the hierarchy of accolades in a legacy.

I have had them numerous times with those more well informed and spoken than you. Maybe you just dont cut the mustard.

When compared to this team, yes. Shorter time together, less important, not as many great matches.

Overhyped is a word used to describe your chosen team. The fact is that there were teams available & if so inclined the various promotions could have chosen to give them the belts. Instead Rick\Scott ran with it because they were fucking good. If you actually knew what things mean, then I shouldnt have to explain the concept of why a team would be given a run like that.

You claim that 'you don't know' how the Harts would have faired in Japan because it never happened? First... do you know a single thing about how the business works? The Steiners got pushed in Japan because they drew. WWF wrestlers drew HUGE in Japan whenever they got the rare chance to compete there. The Hart family already had a good working relationship NJPW (both Bret and Jim did several tours, Owen was made their Jr. Heavyweight champ, Bulldogs worked there extensively, ect). Had the Hart Foundation, a popular WWF tag team whom their fans wanted to see, been available... they would have had the same type of accolades... if not greater, than what the Steiners had. Anyone who doesn't believe that... is either kidding themselves, or just doesn't understand. I'm guessing you just don't understand

Here is what you just dont get. The wrestlers in question could have worked in Japan. At any given point Vince would have let his guys wrestle on a card for a Japanese promotion so long as the money & publicity was good. Need proof? Bret wrestled on an AJPW card sometime in the early 90's, along with other contracted WWF stars including Ultimate Warrior. You are acting like they were landlocked and Vince would never let it happen. Was it a frequent thing? No, but it certainly did happen & could have happened more often if the money\publicity was right. If your team was really that in demand, I bet that Vince would have had no problem taking money for a few more appearances.


Fact is saying they could have done as well or better than The Steiners is just speculation. If NJPW, AJPW, etc really wanted Bret\Anvil- they could have got them for a price.

Maybe you just had some shitty points that did not warrant the time.... but speaking of incapable-

Kind of like how Finlay & others had some good points of their own & you ignored them because you were incapable of debating their posts? You know, where Finlay brought up the relevant W\L stats from the website you chose to bring into the argument? Or where others brought up relevant competition or the higher number of rated matches The Steiners had in their career?


But none of what we say had merit right? Because The Steiners had no competition, became popular when all the good teams were gone, won belts that were not WWF belts & got to wrestle for different promotions or whatever other lame ass excuses you tried to use to mold your team into something better than they actually were?

Got fooled by me? Really? You sure it wasnt because The Steiners were just the better team? Trickery has nothing to do with it, but whatever you need to tell yourself so you can feel like a better person.

"Oh that dastardly nightmare tricked all those people into voting against my team by ignoring my awesome posts & super smart points."

Well I hope so, now that you just had to come back in & cry about imaginary shenanigans and underhanded, dishonest trickery. So close the laptop & take a breath. It's over.
