During Sunday night's match-up of The Rhodes Family vs. The Shield, I was marking out when Dusty Rhodes hit The Bionic Elbow on Dean Ambrose. The match was so memorable all the way around, and it made me feel like a kid again when I was rooting for the "good guys" to win. In fact Michael Cole even said that at the end of the match, "The good guys won!" Then the special moment on the stage with father and sons celebrating with WWE talent ,old and new, felt very special. I can only imagine what that felt like for The Rhodes Family.
That got me to thinking - what were my favorite and most memorable mark-out moments? Not only that, but why did I mark-out so hard?
I'll tell you why I marked out so hard for the Rhodes/Shield match: it was a shade away from being perfect. Those are the type of tag matches the WWE used to constantly showcase at every major pay-per-view (PPV), and sometimes you'd get more than one of them on the same card.
My question to you, Cagesiders, is what have been YOUR Most Memorable Mark-out Moments? What moments have made you get excited like no other? Not only that but why THOSE moments?
I realize that everyone probably has a lot of moments they remember that are special to them. Because of that, I'll give everyone the opportunity to name their Top 3. I think it should be really interesting to see your answers, because someone's most memorable moment might be highly personal, a moment that happened to them at an old arena or house show, or hanging out with their friends and family - you never know!
I'll start everything off with my Top 3 Moments in order and the reasons why for each:
I know it wasn't a match, but I remember getting pretty emotional when this happened. I didn't know back then that they were already married in real life (Oh to go back to the days of NOT being a smart mark) and this moment felt very special, and I remember thinking, "When I get married I want to be able to dress like Macho Man did at Summerslam". LOL, good times.
I was watching this match live on PPV wearing my Undertaker T-Shirt! I have always been both an Undertaker and Sid mark, and this match was like a dream come true to me at the time. When Taker won and became champion I was marking out like a mad man! In fact, I was imitating Takers funeral march entrance, rolling my eyes back, and wearing my fake foam WWE Championship belt!
This will always be my #1 Mark-out Moment. It truly had that Main Event feel, and seeing Warrior holding Both belts made me go nuts way back then!
There you go CSS, those are my Top 3 Most Memorable Mark-out Moments. I hope to see yours in the comments!
