In the old days of WWF, hardcore matches were a staple of almost every broadcast. It should come as no surprise, then, to learn they often spilled into the back as an excuse to find new and innovative ways to deliver big spots. Anything lying around the arena was fair game.

But instead of Hoooooooe! It was Whoaaaaaaaa!" Big Vis" was about 500 pounds and once that train leaves the station, well, see for yourself.
