Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart

Bret Hart, Gino Morella, Dave Hebner, Howard Finkel, Jose Lothario and Shawn Michaels
Sixty Minute Time Limit, Winner is the Man With the Most Falls at the End of 60 Minutes.

Wrestlemania XII

The match was under Iron Man Rules. At the end of the sixty minutes Bret had the Sharpshooter
secured on Shawn Michaels when the bell rang. Bret left the ring with the belt in his hands. Neither
man had scored a fall leading Bret to believe he would retain the Belt. Special Official for the match
Gino Morella ordered Bret to return to the ring. Gino then extended the time limit on an effort to
decide the winner. In the overtime, Michaels was hurt and Bret took the offensive only to fall victim
to the Super Kick of Shawn Michaels in the overtime period.

It was a great match that will be remembered forever.
