Hurricane just beat Steven Richards with the vertabreaker on Heat and JR called it and everything. It's so great to see it again. I would have loved it if he was on Smackdown and would have the cruiserweight roster to use the move on, but that's sort of looking a gift horse in the mouth. Huzzah for the Vertabreaker!
Now if they could bring back those dancing Nitro Girls, it would be all good...
jr *called* the move.. but it sounded more like "vertebreazur" or something.. rather than the real name. but hey, you know, whatever it's going to take to get that on my screen! i think i'm going to have to add that match to my "best of the wwe" collection JUST for that one move.. because the rest of the match was nothing special.
In his book he said he wanted to wrestle a few more years with the company and then retire, but remain with the company in a backstage role of some kind. Shortly before Mania and the surgery it was being reported by Meltzer, Torch, etc.
