Bret Hart vs. Lex Luger from WCW’s Halloween Havoc 1999

Recap from TJ Hawke:

Bret Hart phoned in a pre-match interview to hype up the match. He did not look invested one bit. Luger attacked Hart on TV the week before.

Miss Elizabeth accompanied Luger to the ring. Luger’s body was disgusting. They started brawling right away. Bret was in complete control. Elizabeth went to slap Bret, but Bret blocked her and still remained in control of the match. Luger cut Bret off in the ring and then worked Bret over. Bret randomly just made a comeback. It was weak af. Luger avoided a sharpshooter. They ended up on the floor. Bret re-injured his leg on the fall to the floor. Luger then went after the injured leg. Luger applied a single leg crab, and Bret had to tap out.

The story here was fine in theory. Luger injured Bret’s leg on television. That injury eventually allowed Luger to win on PPV. The execution was just so lifeless though. Thumbs down for this one.

Match Rating: 1/2*
