• “I never got that comparison” – WWF Veteran On Legion Of Doom Being Compared To Demolition
On a recent episode of his weekly ‘Something To Wrestle With’ podcast, Old School WWF Legend Bruce Prichard (Brother Love) talked about the differences between Demolition and The Road Warriors (Legion of Doom in the WWF).
Here’s what Bruce had to say:
“I never got the Demolition comparison. There were a lot of people who looked at the Road Warriors as a cheap imitation of Demolition.
So, there were fans who were only fans of Demolition, and when the Road Warriors came in, they saw them as imitations of Demolition. The people that were Road Warrior fans saw Demolition as cheap imitations of the Road Warriors.
To me, they both wore face paint. But beyond that, they were two big body guys together and all that and they were different and unique in their own way.”
There were several untelevised house show matches between the 2 Tag Teams in 1990, but the closest encounter they ever had on Television was a 6-man Tag Team match on NBC’s WWF Saturday Night’s Main Event 28 (which aired on October 13, 1990) that included The Ultimate Warrior tagging with Hawk & Animal against all 3 members of Demolition.
