Stan Hansen

Post by MARTYEWR » 2004/01/08 Thu 12:21 pm

I was watching one of the WWE's new DVD's this week, Bloodbath, and one of the extras featured a cage match between champion Bob Backlund and Stan Hansen for the Federation championship. Great old school cage match.

Anyways, I like Hansen, but one of the few things I'm shady about (regarding him and both Federation history) is his time there, as I was almost unaware he was even with the Federation. So anyways, does anyone know when he began with the Federation and when he left? Thanks in advance.

He worked several matches in the WWWF in the 70's, usually as a heel. He faced Sammartino in a cage for the title in the second Showdown at Shea Stadium card.

Yeah. Hansen had the huge feud with Sammartino. He 'broke his neck'

Yeah, the neck reputation carried over to Japan and he was huge there as a heel!
