KAYFABE THEATER – 05.23.2017: Stone Cold Steve Austin vs. Owen Hart – Survivor Series 1997


The rivalry between Steve Austin and Owen Hart for the WWF Intercontinental Championship was a defining moment in both men’s careers.

Steve Austin & Owen Hart face off in Montreal, after Stone Cold returns from a near career-ending neck injury at the hands of Hart.

The legitimate injury occurred when Hart delivered a sit-out Tombstone (or square driver) during their prior match at Summer Slam

The feud helped to continue to propel Austin, as he was establishing himself at this time as the WWF’s top drawing card.
