#8 Brian Pillman’s “I respect you, Bookerman”
During the WCW Superbrawl of 1996, Brian Pillman had a strap match with Kevin Sullivan, the booker of WCW at the time. The loser of the strap match had to say “I respect you”. Before the match even started, the two got into a brawl, and once the bell rang, about a minute in, Pillman said “I respect you, Bookerman”, and stormed away. This exposed Sullivan as the booker.
The story behind this is that Pillman and Bischoff had agreed to work everyone into believing what happened was legitimate, and Pillman even convinced Bischoff to file a legitimate paper of termination, so he could go to ECW and develop “The Loose Cannon” gimmick, cause a stir there and return to WCW. This eventually backfired, as Pillman ended up joining WWE.
