So you admit Bret wins then, right? If that match is your be all end all and both men were at the top of their game, Bret wins no ifs ands or buts. When the time stopped, Bret retained. He knew nothing about sudden death, if he did he would not have let go and he would have won. If that match proves anything, it's that Shawn cannot beat Bret Hart in a straight up fair fight. He's winless in fair fights with Bret.
