WWE World Heavyweight Championship - Bret Hart

August 03, 1997 - November 09, 1997

The two final participants in the Fatal 4-Way Match from February's In Your House pay-per-view met up again at SummerSlam in a one-on-one contest, as Undertaker defended his WWE Championship against Bret Hart.

Shawn Michaels served as the guest referee. Despite a well-publicized distaste for Hart, Michaels had to call it down the middle. As the action heated up, Michaels got knocked out. Hart took advantage of this and leveled Undertaker with a chair. Michaels recovered and counted to two. Hart argued with HBK about the count and spit on The Showstopper. Michaels picked up the chair and took a mighty swing at Hart, but "The Excellence of Execution" ducked and Michaels hit Undertaker instead. Michaels had no choice but to count the 1-2-3 for Bret Hart.

It was Hart's fifth title reign and he would go on to set up one of the most controversial moments in WWE history when he met Shawn Michaels at Survivor Series.
