, Bret "Hitman" Hart vs "The King of Harts" Owen Hart in a Steel Cage match for the WWF Championship at Summer Slam 1994! There's no doubt that this is my Favorite match from the event. Shawn Michaels may be known as "Mr. Wrestlemania, but Bret Hart is Mr. Summer Slam, cause he always perform on a Higher Level. Even his matches with Doink the Clown and Issac Yankem were pretty good. But it's this match that is the best. In what was a "Fued of the Year", Bret Hart was battling his younger brother, Owen Hart (#ripowenhart
!) Owen defeated Bret in the opening match classic at Wrestlemania X! Later on that night, Bret won his second WWF Championship from Yokozuna! Owen came out looking very bitter, as he beat Bret, yet Bret gets to go home with the title! Owen would win the 1994 King of the Ring with the help of his brother-in-law and former tag team partner, Jim "Anvil" Neidhart (#ripjimneidhart
) who was Bret's partner during the Hart Foundation days! This set the stage for their Summer Slam encounter! Family drama was once again at the forefront, just like the 92 event with The British Bulldog, who returned to the WWF around this time and sat ringside with the family. This match was so well structured, with both guys trying to gain the upper hand and escape the cage, especially Owen! The near escapes had the crowd sitting on the edge of their seats. Bret suplexing Owen off the top of the cage is a highlight, but the ending was just amazing. Owen and Bret fighting on the cage to hit the floor first. Bret nails Owen and his foot gets caught in the cage bars, allowing Bret to hit the floor and win the match, retaining his title. You'd think it was over, but Owen and Jim played the sour loser card to perfection with Jim Blasting Davey Boy, taking Bret back inside the cage with Owen, and both proceeded to beat on the champion while the Hart family tried to stop it. They eventually got inside and the heels get away, but not without leaving Bret beaten and bruised even more than the cage match already did him. This was just pure excellent from both wrestlers and it's a damn shame they didn't main event that show. Hope ya'll enjoy my list.
