TODAY IN PRO WRESTLING HISTORY… JULY 3rd: Backlund Attacks Hart!

DATELINE: JULY 3, 1994 – OCEAN CITY, MD


After Bret Hart defeats Bob Backlund to retain the WWF Championship, Backlund shakes his hand, then brutally attacks him, applying the crossface chickenwing.

The incident would eventually air on the July 30 episode of WWF Superstars. The post-match attack would be the impetus for Backlund’s heel run, and eventually – a second WWF World title reign.
