Owen Hart vs PJ Walker


Walker actually overpowered Hart during the initial collar & elbow tie up before countering Owen’s hammerlock-based offense. Showing uncanny agility, Hart flipped out of the situation, clotheslining Walker to a chorus of boos that transformed into, “We want Bret!” chants. But Owen refused to lose focus, working over the back of PJ via backbreakers and suplexes. Blocking a face slam against the top turnbuckle, Walker started turning this match around. Bouncing off the ropes was Walker looking for a high impact maneuver when he ran into that infamous spinning heel kick. Rather than go for the pin, Hart locked his opposition in the Sharpshooter for the submission victory.


Winner: Owen Hart (2:46)


Is It A Classic: A squash is a squash, but at least the future ECW champion got in a little offense. The point was to emphasize the littlest Hart’s abilities in preparation for another showdown between Owen and Bret, and this was a perfect display of what Owen was capable when they clashed again.
