Go out of your way to watch it.

It was very interesting.  The match itself was not that great.  I remember Magee.  They dont go into much detail as to why they never pushed him.  He just kind of faded out.  Seemed like a nice guy at the end.

MegaMan?

I listened to a Cornette podcast where he talked about him a bit.  Said it was only because of the Hart mat h that he got a deal and it was only Hart carrying him.  I believe he said his last match was against arn Andersen in a singles match in a superstars showing

MaGee seems like a nice, respectful,  humble guy.

 

Too bad he wasn't able to put it all together.

Basically the story behind the match was that it was designed to make Magee look like a million bucks and become Vince's new star. However, Bret carried him so well and made him look so good, that the benchmark set couldn't be followed up on in subsequent matches when Magee was working with lesser workers.

Basically, after the match everyone looked at Bret as the real star and Magee just faded away.

except it was years after that match before people realized it was Hart.

Dude! It's still not the complete match. I wonder how much is missing though the majority of it seems to be there. Wish they had gotten commentary from.bret and  McGhee afterwards

Yeah, I was expecting after the match ended they would get more comments from Hart and McGee. I was a little surprized when it just ended.

Holy crap at this vid...was on YouTube looking him up and came across this news report where Magee was beat to a pulp over a parking dispute by 6 youths.
