The WWE Network will present “The Holy Grail: The Search for WWE’s Most Infamous Lost Match” this Monday night following Raw.
The lost match between Bret Hart and Tom Magee from October 7, 1986, was recently uncovered by Mary-Kate Anthony, who had a copy of the tape when Hart’s matches were converted to DVD and Anthony transferred them.
The WWE was able to get a hold of the match, which was not in their archives with the legend of the match growing over the past decade. Dave Meltzer had a copy of the match and has spoken about Hart’s performance in making Magee look like a superstar to the point that the company was convinced they had found the successor to Hulk Hogan. In time, it would become a spotlight on how great Hart was at disguising Magee’s limitations, which were ultimately exposed, and he never rose to any prominence within the industry.
Hart and Magee are booked for a panel discussion at Starrcast II to discuss the match in Las Vegas later this month.
