The real-life back story for this meeting is compelling in and of itself.
The late, great British Bulldog, Davey Boy Smith had been married to Bret Hart's sister Diana since 1984, making the clash between brothers-in-law much more emotionally charged as Diana sat at ringside.
On top of that, the match also took place in London, England. Smith was actually billed from Leeds, about 200 miles north, but why get hacked off—as the Brits apparently say—over the details?
Smith came out behind London native Lennox Lewis (prior to his first WBC Championship win) who proudly waved the Union Jack as the crowd of over 80,000 fans nearly blew the roof off of Wembley Stadium.
Oddly, Bret Hart came out to an almost equal ovation (Canada is, after all, part of the Commonwealth).
For the next half hour, the two put on what Pro Wrestling Illustrated listed as the Match of the Year for 1992 and what has been named by WWE as the greatest match in the history of SummerSlam.
The back and forth was unbelievable, as The Excellence of Execution pounded his brother-in-law for what must have seemed like an eternity in the mind of Diana Hart-Smith.
After thirty minutes of pure ring poetry, Smith pulled out a victory over The Hitman. Their post-match embrace solidified the mutual respect they had for each other and the two stood with hands raised and Diana between them as SummerSlam '92 came to a close.
Bonus Fact: The British Bulldog defeated his other brother-in-law and co-tag team champion Owen Hart in Berlin, Germany to become the first European champion. Ironically, he lost the title to Shawn Michaels in Birmingham, England later that year.
