With his dramatic steel cage win over younger brother Owen, Bret “Hit Man” Hart retained his WWE Championship and extended his streak of stealing the show at SummerSlam. But SummerSlam 1994 has much more to brag about than just one of the greatest Steel Cage Matches of all time. The event also buttoned up the summer-long mystery of the two Undertakers, as the original and irreplaceable Deadman wiped out Ted DiBiase’s wannabe Phenom. The sight of The Undertaker delivering a Tombstone onto, well, “The Undertaker” was bizarre to say the least.

Elsewhere on the card, Razor Ramon won his second Intercontinental Title and Tatanka shockingly sold out Lex Luger and the WWE Universe by signing with DiBiase’s Million Dollar Corporation. Let us not forget the eight-minute sprint between then-Women’s Champion Alundra Blayze and the Treasure Troll-haired brute Bull Nakano, a bout that goes down as one of the finest Women’s/Divas Title Matches in WWE history.
