|The metal plate|

One of my favorite moments from the Monday Night Wars came in March 1999. Granted by then WWE had a firm grip in the ratings' battle. I had always been a wrestling fan first, but WWE was my preferred programming, even in the lean times.
Anyway, back to the moment. Nitro was in Toronto that night and Bret Hart was in the ring, running down the roster and complaining how no one would face him. Then he mentioned Goldberg, to which the music started and the former World Champion made his way to the ring. He wasn't in the ring more than a few seconds before spearing Hart.
I wish Bret would have willed that steel plate to Kevin Owens the other night at FastLane. Maybe he'd still be WWE Universal Champion, but I digress. I loved the metal plate. It was a great catalyst to set up an intense rivalry.
