Oh shit, I forgot Dory's 81 match vs. Lawler, probably better than his match vs. Mike Graham (I actually think it is better than Terry vs. Lawler).

Also the 82 singles match vs. Bruiser Brody that is a surprisingly awesome brawl.

I've seen this done before in a couple of places, and I think it's a cool concept. You can do it however you want, but I'm limiting my selections to matches I think are worth going out of your way to see, so not every year the wrestler was active will have selections.

 

Bret Hart of the Year

Spoiler

 

For '89, the Busters match is fine, but personally I'd put any of the Hennig matches (especially the one with a finish) or the March DiBiase match over it.

Nah 2002 was the year he came back with a hell of a return match after being out for nearly a knee replacement surgery at the age of 34,  and then got hurt again in his return match. Didn't come back until like July and by the end of the year they were doing a lot of 6 mans building the Akiyama feud.

1992:  Randy Savage vs. Ric Flair - WMVIII

1993 and 94?  not sure...?

1995:  Randy Savage vs. Ric Flair - Great American Bash

1996:  Surely I'm missing something?  can't be Bash at the Beach right?
