Most people don’t remember WWF’s In Your House 3, the pay-per-view where all three titles were defended in one match, due to the fact that it wasn’t very good. At that time In Your House shows were two words to long and felt more like house shows. But the one shinning moment of the show was not only the match between Bret Hart and Jean Piere Lafitte, but the amazing promo before the match (starts around the 1 minute mark).
The fact that these two men would fight over a leather jacket is one thing, the fact that it was stolen by a man acting as a pirate is another, but the insults that Hart delivers is priceless.
“I like to think of this as Captain Crook against Captain Crunch.” Amazing!
And the cherry on top of the cake for this promo was how he finished it.
“When he steps into the ring tonight with me, I think it’s time that he walks the plank.”
Truely mid 90s Bret Hart could make anything look good.
