WWF Intercontinental Champion Mr. Perfect vs. Shawn Michaels (Road to WrestleMania VII, 3/17/91)
Perfect wants to box and now so does Shawn. Shawn gets a good shot and punches Perfect out to the floor. With Perfect ducking out, Shawn PLANCHAS out on Perfect (looks like he actually went straight into a ring crew guy), but then takes a hotshot on the guardrail. Here comes Marty Jannetty to encourage his tag partner. After a commercial break, Perfect delivers the standing dropkick in the ring for two. Shawn does the Flair Flip to the apron and eats a clothesline. Sleeper by Perfect, but Shawn fights out with a jawbreaker. Perfect gets distracted by Marty to the point Heenan has enough and comes down to bait Marty around the ring only to be ran face first into the ringpost thanks to Mr. Perfect. Nice! Back in, Shawn crotches Perfect on the ringpost and starts kicking his leg around the ring. You know the bit. A series of atomic drops gets 1-2-NO! The crowd is totally behind Shawn here. Superkick by Shawn gets 1-2-NO! A swinging neckbreaker gets another nearfall. Shawn goes up for the Flying Fist Drop, but Heenan gets up on the apron. Heenan gets grabbed, but Perfect makes the save and delivers the PERFECTPLEX. Uh oh, Big Bossman breaks up the pinfall for the DQ. (9:26 shown) Not sure why they bothered cutting off the first minute. Anyways, these two should have created some classics, but were never able to. Maybe our expectations were just too high for them or something. ***
