Bret Hart vs. Mr. Perfect, SummerSlam 1991:
Remember when the Intercontinental championship was the "workhorse" title? While the main event scene was clogged up with muscle heads who could barely execute a clothesline, the mid-card was rocking with some of the best wrestlers in the world.
Like Hart and Perfect, who always put together incredible matches when they got together. Such as:
Mike Awesome vs. Masato Tanaka, November to Remember 1999:
This was a long memorable feud marked by a strong chemistry between the two. Awesome had left ECW and come back after blowing out his knee in Japan only to win the heavyweight championship once again.
He defended it here in a match that you may have forgotten about.
