Oh i know this one.

Bret vs Shawn ladder was on a taped show in 92 for the IC belt, 3 years before Shawn Razor ladder match. It went under the radar since after the razor match.



A Little Trivia:When bret was IC champ, the next guy was supposed to be Shawn (bret ended up dropping the belt to the bulldog later since it was wembley). But anyhow, when bret was IC champ, he pitched the idea of a ladder match to vince. Vince asked bret to show him the concept on a taped show versus anybody before he could use this gimmick match for a PPV. So bret picked michaels and the match happened.

Just weeks before HBK vs Razor ladder match at WM-10, there was another ladder match between those two; razor beat shawn in that match too. It was on a house show and buried for some reason.



So technically there were at least 2 WWE ladder matches before shawn and razors Wrestle Mania match.

Expertise

Been a wrestling fan most of my life... especially knowledgable on the true legends of wrestling... Gordon Solie-NWA era, especially... Still remember when Roddy Piper was "just an announcer," if that tells you anything... Mr. Wrestling II, The Spoiler, Pak Song, Magnum TA, Dory Funk, Jr., I saw them all... and have seen pretty much everything since... If the name "Lance Russell" means anything to you, give me a shot...

Experience

Just a few years watching Gordon Solie call matches... and Lance Russell, and Jim Ross, and David Crockett, and Tony Schiavone... and Lord Alfred Hayes, Gorilla Monsoon, Jesse Ventura, etc...
