* His first WWE match (against whomever) * His IC title win against Tito Santana; I believe it was on a house show, but WWE probably has footage somewhere. * Savage/Steamboat from WM3, plus the events and interviews leading up to it (cheesy as Steamboat's acting was) * Clips of Savage's wins in the tourney at WM4, plus his match with Dibiase in its entirity * Savage/Hogan from WM5 * Savage/Hart from Saturday Night's Main Event in 1989 * Savage/Warrior at WM7 and the angle leading up to it * Savage's blowoff match with Jake Roberts in February 1992 and the angle leading up to it * Savage/Flair from WM8 and the angle leading up to it * Savage/Warrior from Summerslam 1992 * Savage/Crush from WM10 (a very underrated bout, definitely Crush's career peak) * His debut on Nitro
I'm not too familiar with Savage's WCW days, but his two world title wins seem like logical picks, as well as one of his classic brawls with DDP.
Rob asks Dave and Ric if they want to go backstage to play Hungry Hungry Hippos and Flair and Batista immediately bail. Flair wants to be Green. Man, EVERYBODY wants to be green. Except the girl in the commercials. She wanted to be pink. That either means that the ad agency was sexist or that she was communist. Of course Hungry Hungry Hippos is a rather capitalist game isnít it? No self respecting communist would play Hungry Hungry Hippos. Except Stalin. He LOVED Hungry Hungry Hippos.

You know, I just can't call it the "WWE." I just can't. My body's rejecting it like a bad liver transplant.-- Bill Simmons, espn.com/page2
You'd have to include some WCW stuff on there. His first title win was a WW3 battle royal and Savage's win was overshadowed by the "Hulk got screwed" angle at the end. That match would probably be out of place, but his regaining the title from Flair would be worthwhile. His Great American Bash match with DDP would be worth a spot, and possibly his title win over Sting in early '98. Maybe the clip from WCW Saturday Night where he debuted? Beyond that, he didn't have much memorable stuff in WCW as he mostly played Hogan's running buddy fighting off the Avalanche's and Big Bubba's of the world with Sting while Hogan buried Vader and Flair.
It's too bad it was only one match of about sixteen on the show, because his Wrestling Classic match against Dynamite Kid looked like it would have been good if it had been a full length match. You'd also have to include the angle where Honky and the Hart Foundation smashed him with a guitar and shoved Elizabeth down...I seem to remember that being huge news at the time, and wasn't that what first turned Savage face?
As an easter egg, they should include Lanny Poffo's SNME win over Hogan.
The Toronto Maple Leafs are built for the playoffs. Of course they are. What Leafs fans don't realize, though, is "built for the playoffs" is just GM-speak for "short on skill, kinda slow, and can't score over an 80 game season".
The gimmick didn't boost the ratings, but didn't destroy them either. I thought the show was crafted together well enough (with the exception of the midget), and I kind of liked how they handled the Trish/Jericho story.
