Yeah, I thought they handled it very well. I'm not gonna complain about them not doing a ten-bell salute... the only people I can remember getting that treatment were Pillman and Owen, who were both with the fed when they died.
Didn't the Big Show's father get the 10 bell salute?
Funny thing. Anyone remember Wrestle Talk America? It was this 3 hour wrestling radio show that was on for a couple of years hosted by the Devious Doc and the Fatboy, Al Albert. They had a lot of interesting guests, callers, opinions, etc. on the show. They even had Vince on there once. Anyway, once Miss Kitty and Lawler were on the show. A caller called up and told Lawler he was upset about the 10 bell salute being used in an angle like that because it was one of the last true and pure things in professional wrestling. Lawler responded with nothing is true or pure about professional wrestling. I hate Jerry Lawler, but nowadays I can't really disagree with that.

i think that big shows daddy's funeral (of course just a work as his dad really died 5 years before this) was in november 99 and vinnie russo jumped to dubyaceedubya in october so i don't really know if he can take the *cough* credit *cough* for that one...its the kind of classy thing he'd do though
Damn, that sucks. Hashimoto was one of the first puro wrestlers I really got into and enjoyed his work. I mean he wasn't roided up or a muscle head, but he kicked ass, I liked that about him. It's a damn shame to read about that. R.I.P. Hashimoto
