Curt Hennig was pretty fuckin’ awesome.
His promos were legendary, his athleticism was phenomenal, and his in-ring execution was textbook perfect.
Rarely a belt holder, Mr. Perfect may never have been the most popular of wrestlers, however few would argue that in terms of pure technical ability, he was easily one of the best of all time.
Sadly, his in-ring perfection failed to carry over into his private life, resulting in his untimely death at the age of 44 via cocaine overdose.
That being said, the clip above represents a rare instance in the career of Mr. Perfect when his aura of invincibility was broken down, and he botched a line just like any other greenhorn.
Hmm… This post turned out oddly depressing.
That certainly wasn’t my intent.
What can I do to lighten the mood…
