“The Wonder Years” story turns its gaze toward Paul, Kevin’s best friend, here in this episode about playing basketball in gym class. Ultimately the story is about what it means to have a disparity in athletic skill between two friends.

This is considered one of the absolute best pay-per-views of all time and for good reason. One does not even need to watch the pay-per-view to really know that. Just look at the card: Flair-Funk, Sting-Muta, War Games, et cetera. The show is a who’s who of stars from the 1980s NWA.

It also features what is probably one of the wildest, craziest and most fun endings to a pay-per-view I have ever seen.

Normally I’m a fan of Wayne. He provides some great comic relief in the series. Even when his character feels two-dimensional, it’s still fun.

But this episode spotlight on Wayne wasn’t fun.
