This Week's Movie You've Probably Never Seen
SummerSlam '91 (1991)
It truly is a match made in heaven.
SummerSlam '91 features not only the long awaited marriage of Randy Savage and Miss Elizabeth, but also Mr. Perfect taking on Bret "The Hitman" Hart in defense of his Intercontinental Title.
Mr. Perfect loses the title, but the match is well fought and a fine reminder of what a damn fine grappler he was.
Also features Ted "The Million Dollar Man" Dibiase against his old butler Virgil. That shit's hilarious.
Three hours of good times and great moves.
