It Came From YouTube: It almost happened! It could have been!

This is Bret Hart facing off against Virgil.

But not just in any match.

This is a match where Bret Hart put his WWF Championship on the line!

And you know what that means?

If Bret had slipped up, or that crafty Virgil had out-maneuvered him, we could have had WWF World Heavyweight Champion Virgil!

Oh, what a wondrous world that would be!

    Virgil the first black WWF champion. that would have been pretty awesome. plus he could have held that over Ted DiBiase for a long long time.

    Oh man title defense victories against The Berzerker & Papa Shango, what Skinner and Kato weren’t given championship matches. Hadn’t some rumor floated around that Virg was considered for being champion or was it Virgil that started the rumor later on?

  3. Geoff says:

    Usually rumors about Virgil were started by Virgil.

      Virgil did give me a good scoop about the time Virgil was going to win The King of the Ring, The King’s Crown, The Million Dollar Belt, The World Title and possibly The Women’s Title in the same day. Of course he would have had to wear a dress with a curly blonde wig and be called Virgilina to win The Woman’s Title but he said it was cool. As a bonus they would have let him sniff a pair of Velvet McIntyre’s ring used boots for inspiration.

  4. Geoff says:

    You had me hooked until you said Velvet McIntrye and then I didn’t believe you anymore. NOW, if you had said the boots belonged to Mickie James or Victoria, then I would’ve believed you. But I think Velvet is way way outside the envelope

  5. Geoff says:

    Cheerio(s), kix, trix and all that rot. Damn. Now I’m hungry for cereal

    No one could ever say that Bret Hart was NOT a fighting WWF Champion.

  8. Doc 902714 says:

    There was NEVER any argument that Bret Hart was NOT a fighting WWF Champion.
