In the late 80’s into the mid 90’s men defined what wrestling was all about. While everyone paid attention to the bigger sized wrestlers, Bret Hart and Mr. Perfect Curt Hennig were having classic matches. Both men are in the WWE Hall of Fame and both men were herald as two of the greatest in ring workers of all time. The two matches that stand out the most two me are Summerslam 1991 and King of the Ring 1993. Hart and Hennig were both on their games. Although Bret Hart won both matches, Hennig proved he was World Championship material. One thing I have always felt is a lot of guys were held back during the Hulkamania era. There are guys like Hennig, Dibiase, and Rude who should have been WWE Champion before Hogan, and Warrior were. If you take a lot at Hart and Hennig’s accomplishments, they are almost even in what they have accomplished except for Harts WWE Title reigns. It saddens me that Hennig is no longer alive and Hart cannot wrestle like he use to. I honestly think the closest thing I’ve seen to a Hart and Hennig match is Ziggler vs. Punk. Dolph Ziggler reminds me of Mr. Perfect in so many ways. Then Punks Anaconda Vise is a deadly and effective at Hart’s Sharpshooter was.
Bret Hart and Curt Hennig defined an era of what wrestling was and should be. Both men will always be remembered for their great in ring ability.
