Because I'm a nerd, I'm trying to compile the best wrestling promos (or pre-match videos) known to man. Some of them tell a magnificent story while others just get you pumped for the match. Feel free to contribute to this list as I want it to be as thorough as possible...
"Bret Hart vs Vince McMahon"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bkvTI1IunW4 Civil Twilight's music sounded so good here, they used more of their music for one of their Rock-Cena promos earlier this year, I believe. Another great video. Classic Vince moment at 2:10 as you see his evil reflection on Bret Hart's sunglasses.
"Steve Austin Survivor Series 1996"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3DV0RHVteLs There were probably about 4 or 5 of these leading up to Survivor Series and it was essentially Stone Cold finding his voice. He had been developing his character throughout the summer and fall, but these promos were a stroke of genius. Why doesn't WWE do anything like this anymore?
"The Rock, Pre-Rock Bottom 1998"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xJDJPVJob54 Lost and forgotten, this is just a smooth telling of the Rock's transition into heeldom after teasing a big time face turn in late 1998. 1:15, things get interesting and you get a pretty badass beat. The Rock's a millionaire; he's the WWF champ.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PH8fQWuyBxI Summerslam 2002. So many good memories. Already excited about HBK's comeback, this just made ya crazy with anticipation before the match. Includes the "Fight" song that was on the Anthology CD around 2:50.
