Trivia

During Owen Hart and Stone Cold Steve Austin's match for the Intercontiental Championship, a poorly executed piledriver resulted in an almost career-ending injury for Austin, who suffered a "stinger" in his neck. Austin went on to win the match as planned though, Owen allowing himself to be pinned with a weak roll-up. See more »

Bret Hart's Last SummerSlam Appearance
11 January 2003 | by (England) – See all my reviews

SummerSlam 1997 was one of many great PPV events in 1997 (a fantastic year for the WWF). It had great matches throughout.

At the time of this PPV, The Hart Foundation had been feuding with stars such as Steve Austin and Shawn Michaels and there were some strong happenings in this event.

One good match pitted the late British Bulldog VS Ken Shamrock in a match where the Bulldog would eat dog food if he lost. An entertaining match-up.

The late Owen Hart faced Steve Austin in a match memorable for the fact that Owen nearly ended Austin's career (by accident). Despite what people say, it was not intentional on Owen's part;it was an accident which does happen in wrestling. Worrying about it, especially when Austin made a full recovery, is pointless.

Hart Foundation member, the late Brian Pillman faced Goldust in a match where Pillman would have to wear a dress if he lost. He lost-and wore a dress on subsequent WWF PPV events.

The best match of the night was Bret Hart VS WWF Champion The Undertaker in a match officiated by special referee Shawn Michaels. The stipulation was that if Bret Hart lost, he would never be allowed to wrestle on American soil again. It was a strong match and the presence of Hart's enemy Shawn Michaels added to the match. In the end, Bret Hart took the WWF Title for a fifth time thanks to inadvertent help from Shawn Michaels. This would be Bret Hart's last SummerSlam appearance.

SummerSlam '97 is worth checking out.
