WTF Special: The Fingerpoke of Doom

fingerpokeofdoom

Hello ladies and gentlemen, I am your host, the Baumeister.  Yes, I know it’s a little late for this, but I figured that since it is the 17th anniversary of this event, then we might as well make a WTF special.

Actually, there are two events that both cement the downfall of WCW.  One is the Fingerpoke of Doom, and the other is Mick Foley winning the WWE Championship.  Thanks to Tony Schiavone, fans turned the channel after he gave away the ending of the Foley/Rock match, and the now infamous quote:

And here’s the Fingerpoke.

That’s all I’ve got on this topic folks without sounding like a Wikipedia article. It’s better to watch rather than to read anyway, right? Until next time, I am the Baumeister.
