SummerSlam 1991 recall: Bret Hart vs Mr. Perfect for the Intercontinental championship (Video)

As shown on this past Monday night's edition of Raw, here's the video flashback package of Bret Hart vs. Mr. Perfect at Summerslam 1991 for the Intercontinental championship.

Most noticeable when watching this is how much better the commentary was at that time. Gorilla Monsoon, Roddy Piper and Bobby Heenan were an unbeatable team with the perfect mix of enthusiasm, knowledge, delivery and timing. Absolutely perfect!

This is further evidenced by Heenan's money line just over a minute into the video: "Perfect will be in the showers in 10 minutes."

Hart would defeat Perfect that night to win the Intercontinental title in a classic match. Enjoy.
