TAPE 295

Quality: EX (*MASTER*)

Length: 2.7 hrs (2 DVD)

HALL OF FAME: HARLEY RACE (Yet another of the 24/7 Specials highlighting a wrestler that has been inducted into the WWF's Hall of Fame. This one, in particular is very cool, at least for the matches they show - the feature itself isn't any good. I've got a master, so VQ is EX.) Harley Race Profile (Notable because it includes about 2 seconds - tops - of the famous, never-released title vs title match from MSG against Bob Backlund) Harley Race vs Terry Funk, NWA, 2/6/77 (Last couple min - Race wins NWA World title) HARLEY RACE VS RIC FLAIR, NWA, 11/24/83 (Cage - Flair wins NWA World title) Harley Race vs Junkyard Dog, WWF, 3/29/87 (Loser Must Bow - One of my most-hated angles ever; Race wins the match with a clean pinfall over JYD, so he's required to bow. JYD BARELY bows - then attacks Race. I've always hated that - JYD is a face, he should just suck it up and live up to the stipulations. But nooooooo...) Ric Flair inducting Harley Race into the HOF Harley Race's HOF Acceptance Speech Harley Race vs Superstar Graham, 1/25/78 (NWA vs WWF title, 2/3 Falls - clips from the Super Bowl of Wrestling; not a great match but definitely historic!) Harley Race vs Dusty Rhodes, MSG, 12/17/79 (NWA title defense at the Garden) Harley Race vs Kerry Von Erich, WCCW, 2/22/81 (Kerry was simply not good at this point) Harley Race vs Ric Flair, Mid-Atlantic, 8/31/83 (Excellent match that sees Dick Slater & Bob Orton run in and attack Flair. Includes post-match interviews as well. Great stuff.) Harley Race & Paul Orndorff vs Hulk Hogan & Roddy Piper, MSG, 11/24/86 Harley Race vs Hulk Hogan, SNME, 3/12/88 (One of Harley's last matches - he takes a nasty bump on a ringside table and gets legit injured. Good match before that, however.)
