Undertaker w/ Paul Bearer vs. Undertaker w/ "Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase

This will go down as one of the most unique matches in WWE history. Thanks to the help of several other Superstars, Yokozuna was able to defeat Undertaker in a Casket Match at the Royal Rumble earlier in the year. After the match, Undertaker's spirit seemingly rose from the casket and he wasn't heard from since. As time went on, Ted DiBiase claimed that he had spotted Undertaker on more than one occasion and brought what appeared to be the Deadman back to WWE.

Paul Bearer claimed that DiBiase had not brought back the real Undertaker. Bearer claimed that he would bring the real Undertaker back and a match was signed for Bearer's Undertaker to take on DiBiase's. The two combatants looked to be mirror images of each other right down to their moves and mannerisms. DiBiase's Undertaker hit a Chokeslam, and Bearer's Undertaker didn't sit up. It appeared as though DiBiase had the real Undertaker.

Then DiBiase's Undertaker hit a Tombstone, but Bearer's Undertaker sat up. DiBiase's Undertaker went for another Tombstone, but the real Undertaker reversed it into his own Tombstone and picked up the win. Paul Bearer had proven that he had the real Undertaker all along.

Owen Hart vs. Bret "Hit Man" Hart -- Steel Cage Match for the WWE Championship

This will go down in history as one of the most personal Steel Cage Matches in WWE history. It may not have been the most violent or bloody Steel Cage Match, but all-around, you'd be hard-pressed to find one filled with such emotion.

The match was highlighted by numerous near-escapes. Owen and Bret literally came within a hair of winning this match numerous times each. In fact, Bret's trademark, long black hair got him in trouble at times as Owen used it to drag him back into the cage.

As time wore on Owen Hart was able to lock in the Sharpshooter, a move his brother Bret made famous. Feeling confident, Owen started screaming that the WWE Championship would soon be his. As the pioneer of the move, however, Bret knew all the counters and reversed the hold to a Sharpshooter of his own. The brothers once again scaled the cage, and both wound up on the outside of the cage. About half way down the cage, Owen lost his footing and got hung up in the cage, allowing Bret to fall to the ground to finally put an end to this exhilarating contest.

After the match, however, Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart, who was watching the match in the crowd with the rest of the Hart family, stormed the ringside area and threw Bret back into the cage. He then locked the door and, along with Owen laid into his former partner, delivering a vicious beating. Davey Boy Smith, along with the other Hart brothers, scaled the cage and come to the rescue of Bret, who left SummerSlam with his WWE Championship still intact.
