The WWE Classics section of World Wrestling Entertainment's official website has produced a number of quality matches and videos that may be considered rare to most fans. But its most recent release may be the rarest, even to the most die-hard of wrestling enthusiasts.

The company has recently released what it claims is a "lost episode" of its long-running Monday night program. The description attached to the video states:

WWE produced two episodes of Raw under the show number "41". One of those episodes was never considered part of the shows historic 1000+ episode run. Relive this episode in its entirety featuring a huge WWE Championship match between Bret Hart and Yokozuna.

The episode is one of two dated November 22, 1993 and is a pre-Survivor Series episode that does an excellent job at hyping some of the top matches for that pay-per-view extravaganza.

Raw "41" features a long-lost WWE Championship match between then-champion Yokozuna and challenger Bret "Hitman" Hart. Should it have aired, it would have been the first televised rematch between the two since April's WrestleMania IX.

Marty Jannetty takes on IRS in the show's main event, hyping a traditional Survivor Series tag match that would see a team captained by Razor Ramon taking on a team led by Diesel.

The episode is not counted as one of the show's 1,000-plus.
