BOTB: Passing the Torch Moment

Post by badnewzxl » Jan 8th, '11, 15:18

What do you guys think of as the best moment featuring "the passing of the torch?" Batista beating HHH at WM21? Austin's KotR victory over Jake Roberts? This is def open to interpretation so hopefully we'll get some good discussion out of this one.

Two def stand out in my mind:
1. HBK winning the Ironman match over Brett- SUCH a huge moment. HBK def deserved the win, but without Brett passing him the ball, HBK would not have become the legend he is now.

2. the Rock's win over Hogan at WM17- HUGE! Beating Hogan at Mania is a feat that only two guys can claim, and the Rock REALLY worked and made that match prolly the the best Hogan match I've ever seen (it at least blows the Hogan v. Warrior match out of the water bc Rock and Hogan actually added an entertaining match to all the hype that came with it)

how about you guys?

I never liked that. I've always felt Orton's feud with Foley was MUCH better...

I do believe that that match was Wrestlemania 18. But none the less, it was a good passing fo the torch moment. I mean Hogan agreeing to have someone beat him cleanly? The match was very entertaining but you could start to see Hogan's age in the match, there was a few botches.

I kinda liked Batista/Trips but it was Vengeance where they had the passing of the torch, thats how i see it at least. Batista beat him @ Mania 21, then did something nobody else had done at that point, beat Trips in 3 consecutive PPVs culminating in Hell In A Cell at Vengeance after which they shook hands backstage as a sign of respect. I may not be a big Batista or Trips fan but i felt that was a passing of the torch moment.

Goldberg winning his first WCW World Heavyweight Championship from Hollywood Hogan on WCW Nitro on July 6, 1998. The crowd goes completely nuts.
