WrestleMania X was path-breaking in many ways. It was the first WrestleMania to not feature Hulk Hogan. Also, for the first time in history, WrestleMania had two WWF Championship matches on the same night.

However, Kingston is talking about the very first match of the event. A heel Owen faced off against Bret in a singles match.

Later in the night, Bret would win the WWF Championship from Yokozuna in the main event; But before that, he had to settle some unfinished business with Owen.

Both of the brothers did their very best to topple each other. But ultimately, Owen emerged victorious after working on Bret’s leg with a figure-four lock and a sharpshooter.

The feud laid the foundation for the infamous brother vs brother feud of WWF.
