'Mania Match of the Day #5

WrestleMania V
Mr. Perfect vs. The Blue Blazer – 5

Talk about a totally random choice! The Blazer, as we all know now was Owen Hart under a mask. I believe that this is the only time that these two faced each other on television, although I’d have to check the records to be sure. Perfect is rocking a neon-green singlet as only he can. There were a few sloppy moves that come to mind. First, when Blazer stumbles on his landing after reversing a Perfect hip toss attempt, and when they both release an Irish whip into the buckle too early. Aside from those few minor flaws, the crowd was definitely “oohing” and “aahing” and Blazer’s offense, including a pretty awesome crucifix pin. Perfect nailed Blazer with a sick forearm that led into the Perfect-Plex for the victory. The match itself was only around six minutes and both men would go on to have pretty stellar careers.

if by "pretty stellar" you mean neither guy getting a World championship and both dying too young due to the business.. then.. i'd have to agree..

haha, good way to look at it....unfortunately....neither guy really got to run with the ball like so many undeserving after them....those two spots you mentioned were pretty insignificant and didn't look like mess ups really....good little match though
