#1. Bret Hart vs. British Bulldog โ€“ SummerSlam 1992

There is not another Intercontinental Championship memorable moment than Bret Hart defending the title against the "British Bulldog" Davey Boy Smith. To this day, this is the only SummerSlam that has occurred outside of North America, as well as the only pay-per-view of the series that was headlined featuring the Intercontinental Championship.

Both British Bulldog and Bret Hart came inside the Wembley Stadium in London, England, as fan favorites. However, the Bulldog had the advantage of the hometown crowd, and this momentum led to arguably the biggest moment of his pro wrestling career. The crowd of reportedly over 80,000 people all became unglued when British Bulldog pinned Bret Hart to win the IC title, and this moment โ€“ and match โ€“ became an instant classic.

Unfortunately, for the British Bulldog, his title reign only lasted for two months, as he lost it to Shawn Michaels at Saturday Night's Main Event. This would be the pinnacle of his WWE career, as he would never regain the IC title. However, Bulldog was victorious in the greatest IC title main in SummerSlam history, and his accolades earned him an induction into the 2020 WWE Hall of Fame.
