Sean Waltman Names The Greatest Match Of His Career

Sean Waltman

Sean Waltman has named what he believes is his greatest ever match.

Debuting in the WWF as the ‘Kamikaze Kid’ in May 1993, Sean Waltman was the ultimate underdog. His smaller stature marked him out from his contemporaries, but his incredible quickness and never-say-die attitude made him a huge hit with fans.

After securing a famous win over Razor Ramon, Waltman became the 1-2-3 Kid and continued his giant killing ways, much to the delight of those in the stands. This eventually led him to a match with WWF Champion Bret Hart.

Taped on July 1st 1994 in Bushkill, Pennsylvania and airing on the July 11th episode of Raw, Waltman went toe-to-toe with Hart for more than 17 minutes. Something of a rarity for the time on television, especially when the WWF Championship was involved.

There were even a brief couple of seconds where it appeared that ‘The Kid’ would score a massive upset, but of course, eventually Hart retained his championship. On the 28th anniversary of the bout, Waltman took to social media to celebrate the “greatest match of his career.”

In the replies to the post, Waltman noted that Hart gave him “more than a few moments,” and even “let me do all my sh*t & some things I didn’t even normally do.”

Bret Hart even got in on the action, replying that the match was one of his personal favourites.

While Sean Waltman might think that this match was his best, speaking to Inside The Ropes in 2021, he named his famous clash with Razor Ramon from the year before as his most important.
