Vince McMahon's stubborn attempts to neg Hulk Hogan all the way out of his organisation's history weren't not working in 1995, but after escaping prison time in the summer of 1994, it was remarkable how quickly he lost faith in Bret Hart yet again.

That's not to suggest he went looking for the mammoth physiques and bombastic brilliance of the 1980s - but he was more than acceptant to pay tribute to those times instead.

Gone (briefly, and more on that in a moment) were muscle-bound monsters, replaced en mass by natural-looking ones. Massive men pad out this card, though many of them would presumably pass the p*ss-tests of the day. Again as with the original 'Show Of Shows', the wrestlers are joined in places by the television, sports, movie and music stars of the day, though some of them are more Z-list than zeitgeist.

And there's an awful lot of them to go around...
