On this date in WWF history: Bret Hart pins Diesel to win the WWF Championship at Survivor Series

Bret Hart carried Diesel to arguably his best match on this date in history when "The Excellence of Execution" won the WWF championship at Survivor Series.

On November 19, 1995, Bret Hart defeated Diesel via small package to win the WWF Championship in a No Disqualification match at Survivor Series.

From WWE.com:

The Excellence of Execution was merciless. He tied Diesel's ankles around the ring post with a cable and demolished his legs with a steel chair. Diesel somehow got out of the predicament and used the same cable to choke out the Hit Man. Moments later Diesel knocked Bret off the apron, sending him crashing through the announce table. It's very common nowadays for the announce table not to make it through a pay-per-view event, but this was one of the first times such an incident occurred. Diesel brought Bret back into the ring and tried to give him the Jackknife Powerbomb, but Bret was able to hook him in a small package for the shocking win and the WWE Championship. Diesel showed his frustrations after the match by leaving Bret for dead after two monstrous powerbombs.

Aside from one of the stiffest small packages in main event history, what did you think of this match?
