Bret Hart’s legacy is that of one of the greatest in-ring workers to ever grace professional wrestling. While his brother Owen Hart isn’t too far behind in his talents, he has the benefit of also being remembered for his infectious personality and the tragic drawback of having passed away too soon to reach his fullest potential.

In 1994, though, Owen got the chance to break out from largely forgettable jobber to the stars status to being a legitimate upper card player. That transformation got going as tensions mounted between the Hart brothers and took flight when the two not only put on a classic match to open WrestleMania 10 but Bret selflessly put over his younger brother as clean as a sheet. It’s a toss-up whether this or their steel cage showdown at SummerSlam was the better match. In terms of historical significance, though, this bout put Owen on the map as a contender, and stands out as one of the best pure wrestling matches of Bret’s distinguished career, particularly for the psychology of him starting out not wanting to hurt his brother.
