TODAY IN PRO WRESTLING HISTORY… AUGUST 29th: A British Battle between Bret & The Bulldog

DATELINE: AUGUST 29, 1992 – WEMBLEY STADIUM – LONDON, ENGLAND


The British Bulldog defeats Bret Hart at SummerSlam for the WWF Intercontinental title. The event, which did not air in the United States until two days later, had an astounding 80,355 in attendance.

The match was billed as a ‘family feud’ between the two brothers-in-law. After the bout, Hart was originally unwilling to shake the hand of The Bulldog, before reconsidering and embracing not only Smith, but his sister, Diana Hart-Smith, as well.
