Shawn Michaels vs. Owen Hart from WWE 1997

Recap from TJ Hawke:

This match was for Owen’s IC belt and Shawn’s European title.

Rick RudeTriple H, and Chyna came out before the match.

Owen ran through Shawn for a while. Shawn cut him off and then briefly worked him over. They started going back and forth. Owen hit an enzuigiri. Steve Austin jumped the rail and gave the ref a stunner. Shawn caught Owen with a superkick. Bret Hart ran down and attacked Shawn. D-X dragged Shawn to safety. The Hart Foundation ran in.

It was unclear if the match ended in a disqualification or a No Contest.

The match itself was okay, but this was really just about continuing the build to Bret vs. Shawn. That in it of itself is actually interesting and makes the match worth a look all by itself.
