I think reaction to the WWF History video was been 100% positive and rightly so. My question for everyone is...who got left out?
I know only so much time existed and they had literally hundreds and hundreds of wrestlers and moments to choose from so not everyone made the cut, but at the same time, was there anyone or anything that deserved a spot in the video that didn't make it--and as a tangent, was there anyone who could have been removed as not actually being as significant?
My choice for who was left out and definitely deserved a brief mention was Demolition. They dominated the WWF tag team scene from 1988-1990, and IMHO I don't know if there was a tag team ever that was as over as Demolition were in their prime.

I agree about the kane thing... he's been way over with the fans and has made a pretty good impact on the wwf... big show they should have put in there because of his sheer size and some of the stuff he has done....
Dont you wish that you were me??? no?.... i've got two words for ya!
Demolition is a good one, I don't think LOD was in there either and they were pretty popular as well. I don't remember seeing Hennig in there. And Pillman would've been nice. Benoit also, I know he's no Stone Cold or Rock but he's bigger than Edge and the Hardy who were both in it. Maybe a shot of the radicals joining the WWF since it was a pretty big moment when they left WCW and came to wwf.
It looked for a second like they made a point of showing every single WWF champ with the belt, but they missed Iron Sheik, Big Show, Kane, Yokozuna, and Sid. I mean, those guys appeared in the video, but not with the belt.
Stuff I'm suprised they didnt show any clips of: Rocky Maivia (I have no idea how to spell that), Paul Bearer, Dudley Boyz, Linda McMahon,, Test-Stephanie wedding, HBK super-kicking Jannetty through the Barber Shop window.
People probably not important enough to appear but I wouldve liked to see them anyway: Brother Love, Men on a Mission, Jimmy Hart, Lord Alfred Hayes, Rev. Slick, Marlena, prolly some more obscure folks I cant think of at the moment.
I'm not sure, but I don't recall seeing the Patriot or any of the Hart Foundation stuff (Canada Rules era). Pillman and Benoit were both conspicuously absent I thought, but I could have just missed them...

Did it show Adrian Adonis? I think it may have showed Piper cutting his hair, but this may be a false memory of mine.
What about when Piper cut that black midgets hair, the little guy that ran around with Mr. T? What was his name again anyway?
Speaking of Piper, anyone remember when Piper left the WWF and they did a similar montage dedicated to him, played to "My Way" by Frank Sinatra? That was awesome too. You have to admit, the WWF must have some very cool film vaults tucked away somewhere at headquarters.

No Kane at all. Phooey. Also, since they're going into wCw footage, why not throw the Stinger in there? Sure, he's not with the company, and he really wasn't wwf, but, ummm, well, he's still one of my favorites and they could have used a clip of him and Flair. Was Vader in there? I don't remember seeing him.
nWo Wolfpack: ( Nash, Hall, and Syxx were former WWF champions coming back soon)
Nitro Opening: (Monday Night Wars)
Eric Bischoff: (Leader of WCW)
Madusa: (Throws WWF Woman's Belt in the trash)
Clips of Sting or other WCW stuff wouldn't have made sense in a WWF History package.
But damnit, I saw Tito Santana, Bret Hart, Owen Hart, Rick Rude, Koko B. Ware, Tony Schiavone, and Mongo with Mongo's dog. I'm happy!
"Kent Brockman here once again at The Springfield Nuclear Power Plant, where a complete evacuation has taken place. Details are sketchy at best, so we've taken what little information we have, added our own theories, and concluded that whatever the likely disaster, it's most likely the work of our former president Richard M Nixon, even though he is rumored dead." -Kent Brockman
You may be in the minority, but you're not alone. I'll throw in that his finisher won't work/won't be allowed in WWE, casual fans won't know him, and he doesn't actually exude charisma (at least IMO). (I've tried to like him, it just hasn't stuck.)...
