The Hart Foundation vs. The Killer Bees Ė (Boston Garden 2/8/86)
This was a part of a historically important card as Randy Savage captured the Intercontinental title from Tito Santana on the same show. Slow start as the Bees work on Bretís arm. After a few minutes of that and Bret tags out to Neidhart. He pulls down the straps because itís time to get SERIOUS. By serious, I mean cheat. He draws Brunzell in so he and Bret can double-team Blair. Neidhart grabs a bearhug for a while. He whiffs on a dropkick and Brunzell gets the hot tag. Brunzell hits his Dropkick, but gets nailed by Bret from the apron to turn the tide back in the Harts favor. Brunzell receives the Demolition Decapitation, but Bret gets cocky instead of covering. Neidhart tosses him out for a slam on the floor from Bret. Back in, we get a false tag spot. Once Blair is drawn in, Bret whips Neidhart shoulder-first into Brunzell in the corner. Brunzell gets a desperation Dropkick on Bret. Neidhart cuts off the tag and puts Bret on top of Brunzell for two. This leads to another false tag spot, but this time Bret misses the double-team whip into the corner. Brunzell crawls through Neidhartís legs and makes the HOT TAG TO BLAIR! He whips Neidhart into the ropes and knocks Bret down for his guardrail bump. It looks to be curtains for Neidhart as Blair hooks the SLEEPER. Neidhart holds on until Bret makes it back in to break up the hold. Double KO spot allows Bret to draw Brunzell in as he hits a flying elbow drop on Blair. Even though heís not the legal man, he covers anyway and the ref counts three. (15:41) Lots of good heel work from the Harts. The heat segments seemed pretty uninspired though. **Ĺ
