Remembering The Hoosier Dome: Rowdy Roddy Piper vs. Bret"Hitman"Hart

PART I: Rowdy Roddy Piper vs. Bret Hart

Part II: Rowdy Roddy Piper vs. Bret Hart

Last week the Hoosier Dome in Indianapolis was brought down via implosion. Many great sporting events took place over the years at the sports complex, however for me, one of my favorite wrestling matches ever occurred at Wrestlemania VIII in 1992 when Rowdy Roddy Piper defended and subsequently lost the W.W.E. Intercontinental Title against Bret ”Hitman” Hart. The match was a battle of two babyfaces, which was a rarity in those days. Hart said he was always grateful for Piper giving him the type of match that helped to springboard Bret’s career. The videos, courtesy of YouTube, are above.
