    Anyone that says Bret wasn't a good promo needs to watch his work through 1997. This remains one of the best promos I've seen from anyone. Simple, short, justified, to the point. There's no way you can watch that and not want to see what happens next, and that is exactly what a great promo needs to be.
    I adore this promo. "THIS IS BULLSHIT!" was the go-to way to complain when playing video games with my mates back in the day. It's a fantastic promo.

    Bret has another favourite of mine too:



    Just loaded with amazing lines:


    • "He's a LOSER!"
    • "El Dandy, I think you're a heck of a wrestler, you're a great technician in the ring and you're a jam up guy"
    • "Who are you to doubt El Dandy, this guy's a serious professional"
    • "How about Hypnosis?" "Psicosis?" "Whatever"
    • "He's a high flier of the highest magnitude and a serious professional"
    • "This is a groin pull the likes of which you've never seen in your whole life"


    Just fantastic. Gets me every time.

    I wholly agree with that. There are a lot of great promos from Piper. I also really enjoy some of Dusty Rhodes' serious promos from the early-to-mid 80's, as well as The Ultimate Warrior's bizarre promos.

    But how is it there have been 22 posts in this thread and nobody has mentioned the promo that spawned one of the most iconic catchphrases of all time..."Austin 3:16 says I just kicked your ass."

    In the same time "hey, look at these awesome promos from WWE". A bit hypocritical, don't you think ? Also, the point is not to support the company per say, but to support and show appreciation to the certain wrestler where it matters. When the online numbers are as important as anything to WWE, watching/sharing copyright doesn't show an interest to the certain wrestler.

    Re: The GOAT Promos Thread

    does the Bret Hart "This is bullshit!" promo count as the turning point of Bret going heel? Because if so thats got to be up there with the best heel turn promos

    Also you can't post Jake The Snake promos and not have this:

    The easiest reply to this is; its The Miz. WWE have shown a complete and utter disinterest in pushing the guy at all. My one view of an official WWE promo channel promo of his wont change that. The guys jobbing until the day he retires no matter how many Miz videos I watch on WWE's youtube.

    The promos themselves are more from Mike Mizanin than WWE. Put one of the astoundingly dreadful WWE chosen ones in Miz's spot and get them to cut the same promo, it'd suck seven different shades of whale shit. His delivery is what makes those promos truly special.

    So aye, am a guy who hasn't really watched a lot of 80s wrestling, mainly its been WWE 2006 onwards & TNA 2009-2014, with some indies thrown in. But I found some Terry Funk promos, mainly the double tough truck promo & the petrol promo, and fuck me I'm gonna need to check them out. He's a great madman texan. Any other promos from Him I should check out?

    Re: The GOAT Promos Thread

    Ladies and gentlemen, the argument is "Jay Briscoe is not a gimmick". I present you with Exhibit A:



    The ROH breaking up their title lineage by stripping Jay due to injury angle seemed like a bad idea at the time, but Jay practically got it over all by himself with these promos showing his flat out refusal, then his devastation when it became inevitable, to finally his acceptance to drop the belt.
