Greatest Summerslam Matches: (#4) Bret Hart vs "Mr. Perfect" Curt Hennig- IC Title- SS91

Holy crap, they booked this match to go 2nd on the card?!?

What many people forget about this match is, Hennig was considered a better talent than Hart at the time. The WWE thought they were taking a major chance on Bret and called on Hennig to carry Hart to a match that would make the fans take Bret seriously. 18 years down the road, and most younger fans assume Hart was always considered "the best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be." This match is considered, appropriately, perfect. It has what I consider to be one of the best finishes of any match from the early 90s, and upon revisiting it, I'm shocked it hasn't been stolen move for move.

Two more things that become clear while watching these videos. One, Mr. Perfect had the greatest theme song of all time, and two, Roddy Piper should come back and work color for the WWE.
