I already have the Iron man and with the possible exception of Bret/Shawn '92.
It's on the Blu-Ray of their rivalries DVD. The only reason I bought that DVD on Blu-Ray is for this match. I was disappointed though they don't show Brets tantrum at the end.

I got to thinking though, in 97 this was a big match, but how many WWF fans hated Bret-HBK the way I don't care for Sheamus-Del Rio, for instance. Obviously their rivalry has stood the test of time, but I really hated HBKs sexy boy gimmick, and Bret Hart was borderline awkward in some of those promos. Just interesting to watch the evolution of professional wrestling.

But, man, what a great match. Say what you want, maybe outside of NWO and Stone Cold, this is the arguably the best thing to happen to pro wrestling.
