Let’s take a trip down WWF Memory Lane to the year of our Lord, nineteen-hundred-eighty-eight (1987) and reflect.

To add to the build up of this event, the match between Hart and Michaels would be the first-televised, sixty-minute Iron Man Match, in which whomever scored the most decisions in a one-hour period (pinfall, submission, countout or disqualification) would win the match, and the WWF Championship.
