Bret Hart vs. Mr. Perfect (w/The Genius) – (Primetime Wrestling, 11/6/89)
Taped 10/2/89

Bret sends Perfect spinning out to the floor after a hiptoss. Back inside, Bret and Perfect some hairpulling games during a headlock. Bret’s headlock takedowns are so quick and turned to an angle that just makes me cringe. Perfect buries a knee, but Bret gets a crucifix for two. Back to the headlock as we go to commercial. We come back to see Perfect down on the floor walking off whatever Bret did to him. Back in, Perfect lands a cheapshot on Bret in the corner which he does to absolute PERFECTION. Haha, I love it. Big Knee Lift connects and now Bret gets kicked out to the floor. Perfect follows him out and blasts Bret with a chop and then heads back in to pose. Back inside, Perfect whips Bret into the corner for his chest-first bump for two. Perfect makes Bret pay for the hairpulling earlier and tosses him from one side of the ring to the other by the hair. Hennig Neck Snap and a jackknife cover gets two. Perfect makes a mistake (I know, seems like that line contradicts itself) and heads up top only for Bret to pop up and crotch Perfect on the top turnbuckle. Atomic drops from both sides of Perfect sets up a hair toss into the corner. Now Bret sends him flying by his hair into the other corner where Perfect crotches himself. Suplex gets 1-2-NO! The crowd CANNOT believe it. Small package gets two. Backbreaker gets another nearfall. Bret argues with the ref, allowing Perfect to roll him up for 1-2-NO! Bret kicks Perfect off through the ropes. Down on the floor, Perfect goes to the eyes and plans to suplex Bret back inside, but he flips out and O’Connor rolls Perfect for 1-2-NO! Perfect rolls through and grabs a handful of tights for 1-2-3! (13:25 shown) Classic Hart-Perfect stuff here. ***¾
