A few days ago, I wrote about the passing of Curt Hennig, who died eighteen years ago this week. In the post, I mentioned that 'I remember that week well' because - three days after Hennig died - my uncle followed him.
One of the many things that flashed through my mind in the hours after hearing the news of my uncle's passing was how much of a coincidence it was that Hennig died a few days before he passed. Why? Well - I watched my favourite Mr Perfect match - his SummerSlam 1991 bout with Bret 'Hitman' Hart - at my aunt and uncle's home that summer. I remember sitting in their giant lounge room, with my dad and uncle, as we watched that event.
It was the only PPV I ever watched with my uncle, so I'll always have that memory.
Every February 13th, I write about him. I'm sure I've shared the SummerSlam 1991 story before today, so I'll close this post with a couple of random memories that have once again flooded back within the last year.
As I've written before - my uncle owned a videotape rental business back in the early-80's when video renting was a big deal. Sometime last year, whilst browsing through a website that lists the titles I can find on Disney Plus and came across this image:
