    In Your House: opening match was Hakushi vs. Bret Hart.

    I’m curious…why do some matches get omitted on the ppv writeups?

  2. Jamie says:

    The simple reason is that the column can be ridiculously long as it is without including a full PPV write-up. I tend to omit all but the most ‘historically important’ matches. Some slip through the net at both ends of the spectrum, but that’s the rule I work towards

    The question has been answered many time only puts the matches that ate important if not would take up to much space
