I felt the need to answer this. I grew up relatively close to MSG, and met many
of the wrestlers in the late 80's and early 90's. I saw Macho Man as the nice guy that would buy a kid a hot dog, as well as seeing him be the jealous husband on TV, so I have always been a little jaded by promos that are supposed to be real.
The few promos that really felt like they were real, and meant something, all happened way too long ago. "Cane Dewey" was, is, and always will be my favorite promo. CM Punk was close, but that was so screwed up by the powers that be.
I can't think of a single promo during the modern era that really gave me those chills that you're talking about (but don't mention). The build for HBK/Taker and HBK/Flair was up there, but there wasn't a single moment (until Flair whispering "Thank you").
Tasty definitely nailed it with this, and the mistake I may have made, was reading the Discussion thread, before reading the promo.
