Top 10 Matches of All Time - TNJ
Not the most 5 stars which I don't think is the point - this is my favourite matches...
- 1."Macho King" Randy Savage vs The Ultimate Warrior - Wrestlemania VII (1991)Totally responsible for making me a wrestling fan. This match is utter, utter nonsense, but 8 year old me didn't care. Savage is my absolute hero growing up and this is so much fun. Especially when Warrior goes nuts and starts talking to his hands...
- 2.CM Punk vs John Cena - Money in The Bank (2009)Tempted to put it first. Incredible. I dare you to watch the hype video alone and not be excited. But... but... how much more could Punk have done? That's the sad thought. That said - best moment in Michael Cole's career is his reaction to Punk winning. "Oh. Oh my God"
- 3.Sami Zayn vs Shinsuke Nakamura - NXT Takeover DallasWatched this on live broadcast. First "proper" introduction to Nakamura. Loved it so much I woke the wife up to tell her. Incredibly, with this in mind, she loves this match too
- 4.Hardyz vs Dudleyz vs E&C - Wrestlemania X7If you're gonna have a spot fest, do it proper. I really enjoyed the original Ladders Tag match with E&C/Hardyz, but this is the pinnacle of the story
- 5.Kenny Omega vs Kazuchika Okada - WrestleKingdom 11Damn. Just damn. The bumps, the intro... most importantly the story. Greatest match of his life & Omega NEVER HIT THE ONE WINGED ANGEL
- 6.Mr Perfect vs Bret "The Hitman" Hart - Summerslam 1991This is what made me a fan of both matches...The end of this match is so, so good. I believe that this is the moment that Bret was made a star.
- 7.Cactus Jack vs HHH - Royal Rumble 2000Because of Channel 4, if you're aged between 30-45, this is probably on your list. Bloody brilliant.... it stole the show on arguable the best "Rumble Card"
- 8.The Undertaker vs Shawn Michaels - Wrestlemania 26Yeah... the second one is the best one. There's an argument that the first was great with low expectations, the second was incredible with high expectations as well as ending the career of HBK.
- 9.Tommy End vs Kris Travis - HXC : Another Dark NightThis is the match that made me fall in love with British indies. Got drunk after the match watching Mania & told Tommy I thought he was ace. Massive fan ever since.
- 10.Cruiserweight Battle Royal - Slamboree 1998Not for the match itself. This is for the intros and the end, which (Malenko unmasking) I'd argue is my favourite ever WCW moment
