• neandercarl Asks: Sting used the Scorpion Deathlock before Bret Hart, who debuted the move as his new finisher at the TV tapings following WrestleMania VII in 1991. Ronnie Garvin and Riki Choshu used the move before Sting AND Hart however. As for the 1992 Bret/Savage vs Flair/Michaels commentary issue, it was obviously redubbed the next year. As it appeared to be a "Coliseum Video exclusive" match at the time of recording, it would not be unreasonable to assume - based on the setting and the time frame - that it originally featured the announcing "talents" of Sean Mooney and Lord Alfred Hayes.

    Thanks for the info. I knew about Choshu using the hold before Sting and Bret. Good info.
