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.
I kinda think it's changed with the advantage of the Internet and as you said the evolution of pro wrestling. To be fair though, you could really see the animosity between the two compared to the bs between Sheamus/ADR. Also, I liked that both of them were heels and therefore did douchy things to one another and we're acknowledged as being douchy. Compared to the faces trying justify Sheamus' grand theft auto.
