How fans reacted to WWE recreating Bret Hart and Goldberg’s WCW moment

He said, "As for the construction of the match, the one between Bobby Lashley and Drew McIntyre could easily become a classic. Drew McIntyre was phenomenal as a champion.

Bobby Lashley, well man, I was admiring his work a few months ago, and as a champion he's amazing, he'll do the best job of him now. His intensity is out of the ordinary, and he's been around for some time now and he's always done a great job, but now, he's definitely on another level.

So it could be a really exciting match, between two really strong guys. They both have great bodies, but both are also great workers, so you never know what they're hiding. So we have these two amazing physicists, who are also tireless workers.

So it could be a devastating match." Speaking on WWE's The Bump, Foley recalled how he used the idea at the start of his match against Edge. However, instead of using a steel plate, he wore barbed wire under his shirt.

“I’m admitting I stole that spot from Bret Hart and Bill Goldberg. Jake Roberts told me in 1992 that a wise man knows where to steal his material. WCW had done a great spot – we call it a spot – where Goldberg had speared Bret, but Bret had a 25-pound weight taped to his midsection.

So [I thought] it worked with a 25-pound weight, it would work with barbed wire as well, so obviously I wasn’t comfortable those first few moments, but I guess I was luring Edge into the spear”.
